Repeat the inc towards mid front on every other and every 3rd row alternately - SEE INCREASING TIP - a total of 16-18-22 (24-26) times = 42-47-55 (60-65) sts. After the last inc work 8 rows garter st. Piece now measures approx 11-13-15 (16-17) cm.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!

When all inc and dec are complete there are 53-58-64 (76-84) sts on needle for shoulder/sleeve. Continue in garter st.
When piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm insert a marker = mid shoulder. Continue, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st at the end of row towards the neck 2 times = 55-60-66 (78-86) sts. Slip all sts on a stitch holder.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work like right front piece but mirrored – NOTE. Make sure to finish from the same side as right front piece (either RS or WS) in order to work pieces from the same side when continuing for back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Work 1 front piece onto circular needle (work from sleeve edge towards neck), cast on 12-12-16 (16-22) new sts (= neck on back piece) and work the other front piece onto needle (work from neck towards sleeve edge) = 122-132-148 (172-194) sts.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM MARKERS ON SHOULDER!
Continue in garter st back and forth on needle.
When piece measures 6.5-7.5-8 (8.5-9) cm cast off all sleeve sts.

Crochet a similar border (without tie ribbons) round sleeve edges. Now crochet 2 tie ribbons as described for jacket opening on the inside of side seam on the right side of piece and on the outside of side seam on the left side of piece – make sure to place the ribbons to fit ribbons in points on front pieces.

When piece measures 16-19-22 (27-32) cm divide piece on the inside of leg and complete piece back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip legs on the same circular needle afterwards). Cast on 1 new st each side for seam = 60-64-66 (69-71) sts. When piece measures 18-21-24 (29-34) cm cast off 3 sts at the beg of the next 2 rows (beg from RS) = 54-58-60 (63-65) sts.

Charlotte 22.07.2018 - 18:02:

Hej. Jeg vil i gang med jakken, men jeg forstår simpelthen ikke starten på den. Uanset hvad jeg prøver, får jeg udtagningen på 3. pind til den forkerte side. Vil nogen beskrive hvordan jeg skal gøre, pind for pind fra jeg slår op og til anden udtagnings"rapport" er slut?

DROPS Design 27.07.2018 kl. 14:22:

Hei Charlotte. Du må øke i enten starten eller slutten av pinnen avhengig av om du øker fra rettsiden eller vrangsiden slik at alle økinger blir i samme side. God fornøyelse.

Marion 08.11.2017 - 13:58:

Wie habe ich das zu verstehen bei der Hose???? Nach18 cm bei der nächsten R. von der Vorderseite wie folgt: am Anfang der nächsten 2 Runden je 3 M. abketten= 54 M.

DROPS Design 08.11.2017 kl. 16:03:

Liebe Marion, wenn die Arbeit 18 cm mißt, am Anfang nächster Hinreihe die 3 ersten Maschen abketten, bis zur Ende der Reihe stricken, wenden, am Anfang nächster Reihe (= Rückreihe) die 3 ersten Maschen abketten und bis zur Ende der Reihe stricken = 3 Maschen wurden auf beiden Seiten abgekettet, und es sind jetzt nur noch 54 M auf dem Nadel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Irena 22.09.2017 - 19:08:

Czy dobrze sa podane dane probki? Przerobilam 21o x29 r -dalo mi to wymiary 10-10cm .Robie na drutach nr.4

DROPS Design 23.09.2017 kl. 09:29:

Witaj Ireno, w tym wzorze próbka musi była wykonywana ściegiem francuskim, a nie dżersejem. Może to o to chodzi. Powodzenia!

Marion 19.09.2017 - 14:15:

Sorry, aber den Hinweis wo ich die Maschen zunehmen soll, finde ich auch in der Anleitung. Es ist in keinem Video zu sehen wie man bei einem Nadelspiel noch dazu eine reihe rechts gestrickt und die nächste Reihe links Maschen zunimmt und ein vernünftiges Maschenbild im Anschluss hat. Des weiteren wurde meine Frage, ob ich glatt stricken kann und bei der Teilung die Arbeit wenden kann, gar nicht beantwortet. Ehrlich gesagt bin ich frustriert...

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 16:08:

Liebe Marion, dieses Video unten zeigt wie man Kraus rechts mit Nadelspiel strickt. Wenn Sie lieber glatt rechts stricken möchten, sollen Sie sicher auch die Anleitung anpassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marion 19.09.2017 - 13:10:

Ich verzweifele beim stricken der Hosenbeine, die Zunahmen auf dem Nadelspiel sehen einfach nicht gut aus. Könnte ich auch normale Runden auf den Nadelspiel stricken und dann die Innenseite die ja kraus ist verwenden?

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 13:30:

Liebe Marion, die Zunahmen können Sie vor der letzten Masche der Runde und nach der 1. Masche der Runde arbeiten, so werden sie mehr unauffällig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marion 04.09.2017 - 15:09:

Soll die Vorderseite des Ärmels bei der Jacke kürzer gestrickt werden, als die Rückseite des Ärmels? Bei mir wäre die Rückseite des Arms 1 cm länger, wenn ich mich an die 6,5 cm halte.

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 16:21:

Liebe Marion, beide Ärmel sollen beide gleich sein, wenn die Arbeit 6.5 cm misst, auf beiden Seite wie folgt abn.: 16 M. 1 Mal, 5 M. 2 Mal und 3 M. 3 Mal = 52 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marion 04.09.2017 - 11:51:

Ist es korrekt, dass der Ärmel der Vorderseite nur 5,5 cm bis zur Schulter musst und die Hinterseite ab Schulter 6,5 cm?

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 13:36:

Liebe Marion, die Abketten von Ärmel fängt wenn die Arbeit 6.5 cm misst, wenn alle Maschen abgekettet sind, sollen die Ärmel genauso long am Vorder- und Rückenteil sein. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marion 03.09.2017 - 17:29:

Bei der Anleitung heißt es beim Rückenteil der Jacke, nach 6, 5 cm die Armmaschen abnehmen... Der Ärmel der Vorderseite misst allerdings bei mir nur 5, 5 cm obwohl ich alle Maßangaben für das Vorderteil korrekt eingehalten habe. Ist es korrekt, dass der hintere Ärmel breiter gestrickt wird, als der vordere? Auf der Zeichnung ist dies nicht erkennbar.

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 10:52:

Liebe Marion, nach 6.5 cm ketten Sie die ersten Maschen der Ärmel ab, alle Maschen für beiden Ärmel werden nach 9 cm abgekettet, so sind beide Ärmel gleich. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Christiane 17.07.2017 - 16:13:

Ich möchte gerne die Jacke stricken und stolpere leider schon über den Anfang. Ich habe die Maschen angeschlagen und weiß nun nicht genau wo ich zunehmen soll. gegen die Mitte steht da. Ist das dann in der Mitte vom Strickmuster? Allerdings ist am Amfang beim Tipp zum Aufnehmen erklärt, dass man aufnimmt indem man 2M. in die äußerste Masche strickt. Danke für die Hilfe Christiane

DROPS Design 18.07.2017 kl. 08:26:

Liebe Christiane, die Zunahmen sollen gegen die Mitte sein, dh beim rechten Vorderteil am Anfang der Hinreihen und am Ende der Rückreihen. Die Zunahmen abwechslungsweise in jeder 2. und 3. R. wiederholen (= am Anfang einer Hinreihe bzw Ende einer Rückreihe). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hayley 28.01.2017 - 13:12:

Hi, I've just come across your wonderful website. My question is after a brief look at baby patterns, they seem to be knitted on circular needles. As an underarm knitter, try as I might I can't use circular ones. Can I use straight needles or will it affect pattern/ tension or such? Thank you so much your site is beautifully wonderful and so generous with all the free patterns!

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 10:54:

Dear Hayley, please find here all relevant informations about adapting a pattern into straight needles. Happy knitting!
