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.

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.

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.

HÁTA: Kössünk, amíg a darabunk .... cm-es, (ahonnan a háta szemeit felszedtük)" Mikor szedtük fel a háta szemeit? Erről nem volt leírás!!!! Nem értem a kötés egész menetét! Videót sem találok!

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 00:18:

Kedves Klára! Köszönjük levelét, amely felhívta a figyelmünket egy hibára. A hiba javításra került, így a leírás talán érthetőbb lesz. Az ujja után a TESTRÉSZ feliratú szakaszban felszedett szemekkel készíti a darab hátát. Kérdéseire közvetlenül is választ kaphat a Facebookon Magyar DROPS csoportban. Sikeres kézimunkázást!

Hajnalka Klára Réthy 28.10.2018 - 21:07:

Elkészítettem az ujját, és a "TESTRÉSZ:"-ig, és felszedtem a a szemeket az eleje közepe felé. Nem értem, hogy "A DARABOT EZUTÁN ETTŐL A PONTTÓL MÉRJÜK!" melyik ponttól? Hová kell a jelölőt tenni? A hónalj pontba (az ujja és az eleje találkozáshoz? ..

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 00:14:

Kedves Klára! Miután a testrészhez felszedte a szemeket tegye egy jelölőt a szemek közé, és a többi mérést a későbbiekben ettől a ponttól végezze. A legegyszerűbb, ha az ujja és a kardigán oldala találkozásához teszi a jelölőt. és az oldalán méri a darabot. Kérdéseire közvetlenül is választ kaphat a Facebookon a Magyar Drops csoportban.

Thank you. I finally figured out the answer to my question by going over and over the pattern. Because you make 52 increase rows and at the end it says 52 stitches will be left on the needle to go back and forth. So that means you do cast off the marked corner stitch.

Susan 19.09.2018 - 16:06:

Thank you for your reply. It looks like the sweater dimensions will be fine with just a little variance in tension. I used the exact same yarn that was done in the pattern. My question is about how far down from the neck do I need to cast off. The pattern says bind off 74 stitches from the neckline and down the front band of the jacket. I understand that. Does that include what I call the corner stitch, or the stitch that you increase on each side.? Thank you.

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 09:04:

Dear Susan, in the largerst size the sts for front band are cast off when piece measures 22 cm from the sleeve - see chart, then you continue working over the remaining sts for the bottom edge. You will find all relevant measurements to help you adjusting your jacket in the measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Susan Habegger 19.09.2018 - 05:50:

I have a question about how far down from the neck that I cast off on the button side.? My tension increased some after i knit awhile. So on size 5/6 i couldn't do 52 increase rows since i got to 8 inches a little earlier. Do i cast off from the neck down to and including the marked stitch where you increase on each side? Then the rest of the stitches are knit back and forth till the front and back are the same length. I assume you cast off that corner stitch. Just want to make sure. Thanks

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 10:08:

Dear Mrs Habegger, with this kind of pattern, tension in width and height is very important to keep the correct measurements at the end. Make sure to adjust the needle size if needed. Should you need any assistance to adjust the pattern to your yarn, please contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per Email or telephone. Happy knitting!

Modèle formidable que j'ai réalisé il y a déjà 2 ans pour mon fils, il souhaiterais que je lui en tricote un autre, d'une autre couleur mais aujourd'hui il lui faut du 10 ans et je n'arrive pas a transposer ce modèle dans la bonne taille...c'est très dommage! je n'en trouve pas d'équivalent dans vos archives.

Susan 09.07.2018 - 15:16:

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!
