JACKET:

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 – diagram is seen from RS and shows 1 pattern repeat.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY PIECE: Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 314-354-394-434-474-514 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter. Work rib as follows (first row = RS): 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see above, * K2 / P3 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain, K2, 1 edge st in GARTER ST. Continue like this until piece measures 2 cm, now dec all P3 to P2 (as seen from RS) = 252-284-316-348-380-412 sts. Continue in rib, K2 / P2, with 1 edge st in garter st each side. When piece measures 12 cm dec all P2 to P1 (as seen from RS) = 190-214-238-262-286-310 sts. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and continue in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm work next row as follows from RS: 41-47-54-59-65-71 sts (= front piece), cast off 12 sts for armhole, 84-96-106-120-132-144 sts (= back piece), cast off 12 sts for armhole, 41-47-54-59-65-71 sts (= front piece) = 166-190-214-238-262-286 sts left on needle.
Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 80-80-80-88-88-88 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter. Work rib, K2 / P2. When piece measures 10 cm dec all P2 to P1 = 60-60-60-66-66-66 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and continue in stocking st. When piece measures 11-11-11-14-14-14 cm inc 1 st each side of marker mid under sleeve, repeat the inc on every 4.5-3.5-2.5-2.5-2-2 cm a total of 8-11-14-13-15-17 times = 76-82-88-92-96-100 sts. When piece measures 48 cm cast off 12 sts mid under sleeve = 64-70-76-80-84-88 sts left on needle. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve.

YOKE: Slip sleeves on the same circular needle size 3 mm as body piece where cast off for armhole = 294-330-366-398-430-462 sts. Work 3-5-9-13-15-17 rows stocking st with black Alpaca + Glitter, AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 5-8-11-10-9-8 sts evenly = 289-322-355-388-421-454 sts. Now continue in M.1 (first row = RS) with 1 edge st in garter st each side, work the last but 1 st on row like first st in M.1, but without the dec, to make the pattern identical on both front pieces. When all dec are complete there are 107-119-131-143-155-167 sts on needle and piece measures approx 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm. Work 1 row with off-white (from WS), AT THE SAME TIME dec 15-19-23-27-31-35 sts evenly = 92-100-108-116-124-132 sts. Now work shortened rows mid back with off-white as follows: Work 56-60-64-68-72-76 sts, turn, work 20 sts, turn, work 30 sts, turn, work 40 sts. Continue like this with 10 more sts before each turn until you have worked shortened rows on a total of 60-80-80-100-120 sts, turn and work return row and work 1 row on all sts. Slip sts on a stitch holder.

LEFT FRONT BAND: Pick up approx 180 to 212 sts (divisible by 4) inside 1 edge st along left front piece with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter on circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work rib as follows (first row = WS): 1 edge st in garter st, * P2 / K2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P2 and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue with K over K and P over P until rib measures 3 cm, cast off loosely.

RIGHT FRONT BAND: Like left front band, but after 1 cm make 9 buttonholes evenly distributed (make buttonholes in P-sections as seen from RS). 1 BUTTONHOLE = P2 tog and make 1 YO – place the bottom buttonhole in the 2nd P-section and the top one approx 6 cm from neckline (the last buttonhole is made on the neck).

NECK: Worked with 1 thread black Alpaca + 1 thread Glitter on circular needle size 2.5 mm as follows: Pick up 8 sts on right front band (inside 1 edge st), work the 92-100-108-116-124-132 sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 8 sts on left front band = 108-116-124-132-140-148 sts. P 1 row from WS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 20 sts evenly = 128-136-144-152-160-168 sts. Continue in rib as follows (from RS): 1 edge st in garter st, * K2 / P2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K2 and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue with K over K and P over P. When neck measures 1 cm make 1 buttonhole in line with the others on front band. When neck measures 3 cm cast off with K over K and P over P.

ASSEMBLY: Sew on buttons.
Sew openings under sleeves.

DECREASING TIP:
Dec as follows before marker: K2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: K2 tog into back of loop.
HEEL DECREASES:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 8-9-9 sts remain, K2 tog into back of loop, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 8-9-9 sts remain, P2 tog, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work row until 7-8-8 sts remain, K2 tog into back of loop, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work row until 7-8-8 sts remain, P2 tog, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 14-14-16 sts on needle.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 108-108-116 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with off-white. Work rib, K2 / P2 for 8 cm.
K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 20 sts evenly = 88-88-96 sts. Continue in M.2.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After M.2 piece measures approx 21 cm.
Insert a marker at beg of round. Continue in black stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st each side of marker – SEE DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every 4-5-5 round a total of 16-14-16 times = 56-60-64 sts. When piece measures 42-44-46 cm keep the first 28-30-32 sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining 28-30-32 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot).
Continue in stocking st back and forth on heel-sts for 5-5.5-6 cm - insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above.
After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts each side of heel and slip the 28-30-32 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 68-72-80 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 28-30-32 sts on upper foot. Continue in stocking st in the round, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on upper foot, and K tog the first 2 sts AFTER the second marker on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 8-8-10 times = 52-56-60 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-19-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-5-5 cm remain). Insert a marker each side with 26-28-30 sts on upper foot and 26-28-30 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: Before marker: K2 tog. After marker: K2 tog into back of loop.
Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-5-5 times and then on every round 7-7-8 times = 8 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Sock: .... = 88-88-96 sts.

I was wondering if the cardigan can be convert into a jumper, if so how would I go about doing it I\'m as little unsure just what or which would be the best way.\r\nThanks and regards\r\nMaxine

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:44:

Dear Mrs Rutherford, you"ll find here a similar jumper that could inspire you. Happy knitting!

Lene 27.08.2018 - 19:42:

I opskriften skriver I om 2 farver, men når jeg ser på billedet er der 3 farver: Sort/grå/natur, hvordan hænger det sammen?

DROPS Design 28.08.2018 kl. 14:40:

Hei Lene. Genseren er strikket i 2 farger: sort og hvit (og glittertråd), men jeg kan være enig i at det kan se ut som det er 3 farger på bildet. Når det er kun 1 maske med sort/hvit innemellom fler masker av den motsatte fargen ser denne ene masken grå ut. Men det er den altså ikke (du kan se det om du zoomer inn på bildet). Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du legger til en farge om du syntes dette ble pent, men genseren er altså kun strikket i 2 farger. God fornøyelse.

Sivet 19.08.2018 - 13:42:

Bonjour, j'aimerai tricoté se modèle mais en pull est non en gilet comment dois-je mis prendre ? et sans le glitter c'est possible ?

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 14:49:

Bonjour Mme Sivet, vous trouverez ici un pull similaire dans le même groupe de laine, tricoté de haut en bas. Glitter ne change pas la tension, vous pouvez choisir de l'utiliser ou non si vous ne voulez pas la touche de brillant. Bon tricot!

Debbie 30.07.2018 - 23:12:

I read the response to my question, but it appears it may have been mistakenly posted as it is a response regarding short rows. My question was "The drops glitter yarn is not available in black. Could you suggest an alternative that would give a similar effect? Thanks" I would still be interested in any suggestions you might have. Thanks

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 08:02:

Dear Debbi, we are sorry for the mistake, of posting another aswer. To answer your question, this patterns is a few years old, and manufacturing and color availability changes over time. However, the piece could be knitted without the Glitter yarn, following the same description. It will nit have the shiny surface. You can use the available Glitter yarns to add a bit of heather-y effect, silver for the colder colors (blues, black etc, and gold for the warmer colors (browns, orange etc). Happy Knitting!

Debbie 30.07.2018 - 04:04:

Love this pattern. The drops glitter yarn is not available in black. Could you suggest an alternative that would give a similar effect? Thanks

DROPS Design 30.07.2018 kl. 11:00:

Dear Debbi, if your quetsion refers to the short rows, that should be done on th buttin bands... I would take a good look at the piece and asses how much the garter stitch contracts. This is different for everyone as everyone knits with a slightly differnt style and gauge, if it only contracts slightly, that can be compensated with a good bocking, however you do have to do th short rows for the collar (and be careful to do the two fronts simmetrically (if no short rows for the band, it should be so on both sides). If it contracts too much, then, unfortunately it cannot be helped afterwards, it has to be redone. I hope this helped. Happy Knitting!

Kerserho 11.07.2018 - 14:45:

Bonjour , je ne comprends pas à partir des rangs raccourcis . Faut il faire une technique " mailles jumelles ou autres . Il manque un croquis explicatif , je pense ; merci à l'équipe

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 15:52:

Bonjour Mme Kerserho, cette vidéo montre comment tricoter la réhausse de l'encolure dos. Vous pouvez tricoter les rangs raccourcis comme dans la vidéo (technique standard) ou celle que vous préférez. Bon tricot!

Lena 05.07.2018 - 11:58:

Jeg har et spørgsmål til bærestykket: Skal jeg regne mønsteret fra den 1. m efter kantm? Og hvis ja så giver det ikke mening for mig at strikke den næst sidste m som den 1. m i M1 (som efter min forståelse er i bundfarve) for fx i p 16 (det er så fra vrangsiden) hvor sidste maske for p i M1 er i mønsterfarve, men efter den skrevne del af opskriften skal strikkes som 1. m i M1 altså i bundfarve. Jeg håber I kan følge min tankegang og spørgsmål :)

DROPS Design 06.07.2018 kl. 10:21:

Hej Lena, ja du strikker 1. m som en kantmaske i retstrik, så strikker du M.1 og strikker næst sidste maske som første maske i M.1 (så den bliver ens i begge sider mod midt foran) og sidste maske som en kantmaske i retstrik. God fornøjelse!

Elin 18.06.2018 - 19:46:

Jeg mente selvsagt ikke at dere skulle skrive om oppskriften! Jeg lurte på om det er forholdsvis enkelt å konvertere den selv, mens man strikker, og tenke rundt i stedet for flatt. Jeg går ut fra at kantmaskene faller bort, men vil det dermed bli fire masker mindre å legge opp? Jeg går egentlig ut fra at det skal gå greit ellers. Flott mønster som det er verdt å prøve seg på!

Elin 09.06.2018 - 10:18:

Er det mye pes å konvertere denne til å strikke rundt, og heller klippe opp? Er det noe spesielt jeg skal tenke på når jeg konverterer fra flatt til rundt?

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 13:45:

Hei Elin. Vi kan dessverre ikke skrive om oppskriften for deg, men det er ikke noe i veien for at du heller strikker rundt og klipper opp. Du kan bruke oppskrifter som er strikket rundt som utgangspunkt (husk på strikkefastheten), og ellers kan du spørre om hjelp i ditt lokale DROPS utsalgssted om du skulle trenge det. Her er link til DROPS butikker Vedlagt er video til hvordan å klippe opp. God fornøyelse.

Vibeke 16.05.2018 - 15:21:

Kan man strikke trøjen efter samme mønster men uden glittertråden?

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 14:50:

Hej Vibeke, ja det går helt fint :)
