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.

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.

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).
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
After all inc and dec there are 90-93-109 (115-121-126) sts on the needle. When finished with inc on right side, bind off 51-52-62 (66-70-74) sts from the neckline and down the front band of jacket (bind off from WS) = 39-41-47 (49-51-52) sts left on needle.

Bind off.

Work as right half but without button holes – this piece is assembled with wrong side out.

Put the 2 pieces towards each other and sew tog mid back – sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. Fold the jacket and sew underarm and side seams in front loop of outermost sts. Sew on buttons.

Appreciate your response. I think the sweater is darling. I got the yarn. But still need to have you clarify how to get the stitches on the other side of the diagonal? None of your responses tell this. I see how the diagonal is moved along with the increased stitches with the st marker. I think if you told exactly what to do on each of the next 5 rows after the sleeve is done it would help. Then I could continue on. Please be very specific. I really want to understand this. Thank you.

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 15:46:

Dear Susan, continuing increasing on each side of the st with the marker will creates the pattern as it looks on the picture, working only 5 rows may not be enough, just continue as explained, if you have any doubt, do not hesitate to bring your work to your store/send them a picture per email so that they can help you. Happy knitting!

Susan 09.07.2018 - 15:02:

Thank you for responding. I still need to know what "back over" at the bottom of the front means. I realize you need to continue knitting the stitches left on the needle. Do you need to turn your work and pick up stitches and go backwards?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 15:44:

Dear Susan, sorry I don't understand what you mean with "back over", you cast on the sts on the left side for back piece (seen from RS) and increase for the front piece with 1 YO on each side of the st with the marker = there will be always more st before marker and this will make the garter st look different before and after marker. Happy knitting!

Susan 09.07.2018 - 07:08:

In the front piece near the end it says to knit back and forth over these stitches for 1 1/8". What does that mean?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 07:52:

Hi Susan, The stitches you have left on the needle are continued for one and one eighth inch back and forth on the needle before binding off (check first that the front and back pieces are of equal length). Happy knitting!

Susan 09.07.2018 - 06:49:

When I see the front of 20-15 I see vertical knitting rows then the yarn overs making a diagonal line to a right angle to horizontal rows. Why don't I see this in the pattern? Why am I confused ? It seems like there should be about the same number of stitches added on to each side of the sleeve. I think I understand the moving marker but still a triangle of the sleeve is missing. In English, Freda, Lucie, Georgia and Hannah had the same question. Why don't I get it? Appreciate help.

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 08:57:

Dear Susan, this diagonal (dotted line in chart) is created by increasing with a YO on each side of the st with marker on front piece. Happy knitting!

Jean Wong 03.05.2018 - 06:21:

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!
