INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st in each side of marker by making 1 YO. Work YO twisted on next row (i.e. knit in back loop of st instead of front loop) to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Work the piece sideways. Work 2 pieces and finish by sewing pieces tog in the back. Work the pieces from the sleeve edge towards the mid of jacket.

RIGHT HALF:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 36-38-40 (40-42-44) sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with Delight. K back and forth on all rows until completed (= garter st).
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 6-6-5 (5-6-6) cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2" (2"-2 3/8"-2 3/8"), inc 1 st in each side, repeat the inc on every 8th row a total of 6-7-9 (11-13-14) times = 48-52-58 (62-68-72) sts. Work until piece measures 17-19-20 (25-29-33) cm / 6 3/4"-7½"-8" (9 3/4"-11 3/8"-13") – adjust so that the last row is worked from WS.

BODY:
K 1 row (= RS), at end of row cast on 41-43-50 (53-58-60) sts (= towards the back) = 89-95-108 (115-126-132) sts.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
K 1 row, turn, insert a marker in the 2nd st on needle from RS (= in right side). Continue – AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of the st with marker every other row a total of 38-40-46 (48-50-52) times – SEE INCREASE TIP. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8.5-9-10.5 (11-12-13) cm / 3 1/4"-3½"-4 1/4" (4 3/8"-4 3/4"-5 1/8") work only over the last 60-65-74 (79-86-91) sts in the left side seen from RS (= back piece), slip the remaining sts on a stitch holder.

BACK PIECE:
Work until piece measures 13-14-16 (17-18-19) cm / 5 1/8"-5½"-6 1/4" (6 3/4"-7"-7½") (from where back piece sts was cast on), bind off.

FRONT PIECE:
Put sts from stitch holder back on needle but leave 9-10-10 (10-12-12) sts towards the back on the stitch holder for neckline. Continue inc on every other row – AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st towards the neck (= towards sts on stitch holder) on every 4th row a total of 6-7-7 (7-7-7) times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 14-15-17 (18-19-20) cm / 5½"-6"-6 3/4" (7"-7½"-8") (from where inc on front piece started and towards mid front) bind off for 3-4-4 (5-5-5) button holes as follows (from neck, i.e. from WS): K 2, bind off 2 sts, * K 12-9-11 (9-10-10) sts, bind off 2 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 2-3-3 (4-4-4) times, K rest of row. On next row cast on 2 new sts over the bound off sts.

I am knitting the 3/4 sweater. After all increases and decreases I only have 90 stitches instead of 121. Any ideas as to where I have gone wrong?

DROPS Design 03.05.2018 kl. 09:45:

Dear Mrs Wong, it's a bit complicated to get an idea where it's wrong. Make sure your tension is correct and that you have increased 2 sts at the marker. You can bring your work to your store (or send them a picture per mail) so that they can have a look together with you. Happy knitting!

MARTINE PITSCHON 02.05.2018 - 22:15:

Un grand merci pour votre réponse ! Ce modèle me plait beaucoup.

Pitschon Martine 30.04.2018 - 17:57:

Bonjour, je viens de terminer ce joli gilet en taille 6 ans. Mais il fait des jaloux(ses) chez les plus grand(e)s... Ne pourrait-on pas avoir les explications en tailles femmes ?... Merci !!!

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Mme Pitschon, vous avez ici un modèle femme dont la construction est différente mais qui ressemble à celui-ci. Bon tricot!

Lesley Baker 25.04.2018 - 23:45:

I am confused about the increase to either side of the inserted marker. I am knitting the size 6-9 months cardigan. I have increased by 2 stitches 22 times (so 44 stitches) but have now reached the 9cm point and am supposed to only continue knitting over the left 65 stitches? But I am equally still supposed to increase next to the marker another 18 times (I.e. 40 times in total) - how is that done if I am not knitting these stitches at present?

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 08:49:

Dear Mrs Baker, make sure to get and keep correct tension (= 24 sts x 38 rows = 10 x 10 cm) - you increase in 2nd size on every other row a total of 40 times on each side of the st with marker and at the same time when piece measures 9 cm work over the 65 sts on the left side (seen from RS = end of row from RS) for back piece, put all remaining sts on a st holder, they will be worked back later for front piece. Happy knitting!

Kerry Patton 25.04.2018 - 17:10:

I have completed the first half of the sweater, however the front half is about 2 inches wider than the back half. Not sure how to fix this! Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 08:30:

Dear Mrs Patton, did you get and kept the correct tension? Front piece should be somewhat longer than back piece for button band, maybe you can arrange then the width when sewing the buttons on front piece. Happy knitting!

Sandrine 17.03.2018 - 12:08:

Je suis à l'étape où je dois insérer un marqueur dans la 2è maille (appelons ce rang le rang n°2), puis augmenter de part et d'autre. Or je ne comprends pas car si j'insère le marqueur dans la maille, ce marqueur reste au niveau du rang n°2, et lorsque je tricote le rang 3 puis que je dois augmenter au rang n° 4, le marqueur est 2 rangs en-dessous. Dois-je comprendre qu'il faut placer le marqueur après la 1ère maille au lieu de "dans la 2è maille"?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Sandrine, votre marqueur doit rester dans cette maille tout du long des augmentations, cette maille avec le marqueur correspond à la ligne diagonale dans le schéma des mesures: vous augmentez ensuite avant cette maille et après cette maille = le nombre de mailles avant le marqueur va donc augmenter. Bon tricot!

Sorry for the confusion. I understand the increasing at each end. But is 1 row equals to just one RS? or one RT and one WS?

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 09:40:

Dear Gaby, 1 row is when you work all sts on needle either from RS or from WS. When you work 2 rows (= 1 from RS + 1 from WS) you get a ridge of the garter st. Happy knitting!

Gaby Swank 08.03.2018 - 16:23:

Gaby Swank 08.03.2018 - 14:55:

When doing the sleeve it says to add a stitch at each end every 8th row. Do you count one row to as one right and one wrong side or is it counted as one row being a ½ row?

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 15:29:

Dear Mrs Swank, when increasing 1 st on each side of sleeve, increase 1 st at the beg of row from RS and 1 st at the end of the same row, work 7 rows without increasing and repeat these 8 rows starting from RS. Happy knitting!
