JACKET:
Worked in one piece from side to side. Beg on left front piece, then knit the sleeve, the back piece, the other sleeve and finish with right front piece. The whole jacket is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
LOOSELY cast on 54-58-66 (74-80) sts on needle size 4.5 mm with off-white. Work 10 rows back and forth on needle for front band (first row = RS, this row beg at bottom edge). Now work shortened rows and stripes as follows: * work 36-38-44 (50-54) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 49-53-61 (69-75) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, turn piece and work return row. Work 36-38-44 (50-54) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 49-53-61 (69-75) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 52-56-64 (72-78) sts with off-white, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row *. Repeat from *-* (i.e. 1 repeat = 12 rows at the bottom and 2 rows at the top). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures approx 14-15.5-17 (18.5-19.5) cm measured where widest (adjust so next row is worked on all sts in off-white) slip the bottom 32-34-40 (46-50) sts on a stitch holder (= the side). Cut the thread. Cast on 28-32-36 (44-52) new sts (over sts on stitch holder) at beg of row with off-white for sleeve and work remaining sts on row = 50-56-62 (72-82) sts on needle. Turn piece and work return row on all sts.

SLEEVE:
Continue as follows: * Work 32-36-40 (48-56) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 45-51-57 (67-77) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 48-54-60 (70-80) sts with off-white, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 32-36-40 (48-56) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 45-51-57 (67-77) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, turn piece and work return row *. Repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 16-17-18 (18-20) cm from where sleeve sts were cast on – measured where widest (adjust so next row is worked on all sts with off-white). On next row from RS cast off the first 28-32-36 (44-52) sts with light grey and slip remaining 22-24-26 (28-30) sts on a stitch holder.
Now slip the 32-34-40 (46-50) sts from the first stitch holder back on needle.

GUSSET:
Continue as follows (first row = from RS): Work all sts on needle with off-white, turn piece and work return row. Work 10-11-13 (15-16) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 20-22-26 (30-32) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white (insert a marker in piece = the side), turn piece and work return row. Work 10-11-13 (15-16) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work 20-22-26 (30-32) sts with light grey, turn piece, tighten thread and work return row. Work all sts with off-white, AT THE SAME TIME at the end of row work the top 22-24-26 (28-30) sts on stitch holder back on needle. Turn piece and work all sts = 54-58-66 (74-80) sts.

BACK PIECE:
Now continue with shortened rows and stripes as described for front piece. Continue until piece measures approx 27-30-33 (36-38) cm from marker at the side, measured where widest (adjust so next row is worked on all sts with off-white). Slip the bottom 32-34-40 (46-50) sts on a stitch holder.

Cut the thread. Cast on 28-32-36 (44-52) new sts (over sts on stitch holder) at beg of row with off-white for sleeve and work remaining sts on row = 50-56-62 (72-82) sts on needle. Turn piece and work return row on all sts.

SLEEVE:
Continue as described for the other sleeve until there are the same no of rows as on first sleeve. On next row from RS cast off the first 28-32-36 (44-52) sts with light grey and slip the remaining 22-24-26 (28-30) sts on a stitch holder. Slip the bottom 32-34-40 (46-50) sts from the first stitch holder back on needle. Now work gusset as described above. After gusset is complete there are 54-58-66 (74-80) sts on needle.

Bonjour, Pensez-vous qu'il est possible de tricoter le bonnet avec les restes de laine après avoir tricoté la veste en taille 12/18 mois? Merci

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 07:55:

Bonjour Stéphanie, je suis désolée, nous n'avons pas la quantité nécessaire pour l'ensemble, juste pour chaque pièce séparément - Bon tricot!

Angelika 21.04.2018 - 17:27:

Leider bleibt mir die Anleitung für den Keil immer noch ein Rätsel ☹️

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 09:17:

Liebe Angelika, nach dem linken Vorderteil bleiben auf der Nadel die Maschen für den Ärmel (die unteren Maschen vom Vorderteil werden stillgelegt), dann stricken Sie den Ärmel und legen die Maschen vom Ärmel still. Dann stricken Sie die unteren Maschen der Jacke (= die stillgelegten Maschen vom Vorderteil) mit verkürzten Reihen und dann stricken Sie wieder die Maschen vom Ärmel mit den Maschen vom unteren Teil für den Rückenteil. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Angelika 20.04.2018 - 06:56:

Hallo, ich habe die Beschreibung für den Keil mehrmals gelesen, aber nicht richtig verstanden. Ist es richtig, dass sowohl oben als auch unten ein Keil entsteht? Mit freundlichen Grüßen Angelika

DROPS Design 20.04.2018 kl. 08:57:

Liebe Angelika, der Keil wird nur unten gestrickt, dh auf die Maschen vom unteren Teil nach linkem Vorderteil stillgelegt wurden (= 32-34-40 (46-50) M). Die Maschen für die Ärmel werden erst am Ende von dem Keil zurückgestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Emine Tahir 11.03.2018 - 23:17:

Is there a diagram of the jacket? I am having trouble trying to work out the placement of the gusset after the first sleeve. Have read the gusset instructions several times to no avail.

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 10:41:

Dear Mrs Tahir, slip the 32-50 sts (see size) back on needle and work 2 rows starting from RS over all sts with off white, then starting from RS work the short rows: 2 rows with light grey over 10-16 sts, 2 rows with light grey over 20-32 sts, 2 rows over all sts with off white, 2 rows with light grey over 10-16 sts, 2 rows with light grey over 20-32 sts and then work 1 row with off white over all sts + sts from sleeve, turn and work return row over all sts (from top to bottom of jacket). Happy knitting!

Jen 09.12.2017 - 16:57:

Is it possible to knit this one with cotton yarn? Doctor advised avoiding wool because of eczema.

DROPS Design 10.12.2017 kl. 19:08:

Jen, yes of course. Just look for a cotton yarn in yarngroup B. Drops Belle, Drops Muskat or Drops Cotton fine would work nicely. Happy Knitting!

Emma 23.03.2017 - 16:27:

I love this pattern, but I would like it in a bigger size.

DROPS Design 23.03.2017 kl. 17:19:

Dear Emma, this kind of pattern is only available in baby size as here or in adult size (see here for example). See more jackets worked sideways here. Happy knitting!

Simone 27.10.2016 - 21:29:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage zum Ärmelbeginn bzw. Vorbereitung: die letzte normale Reihe am li. Vorderteil wird mit Grau gestrickt...? Dann lege ich die 40 Maschen (grau) auf einen Hilfsfaden und schneide dann welchen Faden ab??? (Grau oder den weissen?) Die Maschen die ich jetzt aufnehme werden mit weiss aufgenommen oder mit grau? Dann soll man ja die Arbeit drehen und diese neu aufgenommenen Maschen abstricken (welche farbe?) Vielen Dank für die Farbentwirrung...

DROPS Design 28.10.2016 kl. 09:33:

Liebe Simone, die letzte Reihe am li Vorderteil wird mit Grau gestrickt, dann die 40 M (grau) auf den Hilfsfaden legen, Grau Faden abschneiden. Mit Weiss 36 M anschlagen, dann die letzten 26 Maschen (oben) mit Weiss stricken = 62 M. Die Rück-R mit weiss stricken, und dann die Ärmel (mit Grau) stricken.

Marianne Stallbohm 29.08.2016 - 13:48:

Er det korrekt læst at jeg i denne opskrift med forkortede pinde bare vender arb. og strikker tilbage uden at bruge den fremgangsmåde der er vist i videoteknikken: forkortede pinde i retstrik m/omslag? Når jeg strikker/vender på den lette måde får jeg nemlig ikke så store huller ved vendingen som på opskriftens billede, derfor er jeg i tvivl.

DROPS Design 30.08.2016 kl. 12:13:

Hej Marianne. Ja, det kan du sagtens. Det er op til dig at vaelge metode - nogle kan bedre lide den med omslag - men det vaelg hvad du selv synes ser paenest ud. God fornöjelse videre.

Catherine Cavan 05.08.2016 - 15:20:

Rebonjour, Merci pour la 1ère réponse. Voici une 2ème question : après avoir rabattu les 28 premières mailles avec le fil gris clair, il faut bien couper le fil écru pour pouvoir reprendre les mailles en attente sur le1er arrêt? Merci

DROPS Design 05.08.2016 kl. 17:07:

Bonjour Mme Cavan, oui tout à fait, après la manche, il vous couper les 2 fils pour reprendre en bas du gilet. Bon tricot!

Catherine Cavan 03.08.2016 - 12:24:

Bonjour Pour les rayures en rangs raccourcis, on fait 4 rangs en gris clair (36 puis 49 m), 2 rangs écru sur la totalité, puis 4 rangs gris clairs et 2 rangs ecrus sur 52 m? Je trouve que par rapport à la photo du modèle, les bandes grises reportent beaucoup plus. Est-ce normal (4 rangs gris et 2 écru)? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 03.08.2016 kl. 14:26:

Bonjour Mme Cavan, c'est tout à fait exact: on a 4 rangs gris (= 2 côtes mousse) et 2 rangs écru (= 1 côte mousse) en bas du gilet et 2 rangs gris/2 rangs écru en haut de l'empiècement. Bon tricot!
