GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

GARTER ST (in the round): *K 1 round and P 1 round*, repeat from *-*.
---------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The garment is knitted back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Work the jacket from mid front on left front piece and out towards the side, bind off for sleeve and continue until mid back before binding off. Then work right front piece the same way but reversed from mid front before the garment is sewn tog mid back. Finish by knitting and sewing in the sleeves.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 109-114-119-124-129-134 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. K 7 rows back and forth over all sts (1st row = from WS). Continue working next row from RS as follows: * K3, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO (= 2 YO) *, repeat from *-* and finish with K4. Then K 7 rows over all sts (K one YO, slip the other YO off the needle).
Work next row as follows (from RS):
8 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, P3, * K1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in total, K1, P1, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in total, K1, P3, K 55-60-65-66-71-76 sts while AT THE SAME TIME inc 14-16-17-16-15-16 sts evenly (inc 1 st by making 1 YO), P3, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in total, K1, P1, *-* 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in total, K1, P3 and 8 sts in garter st = 143-150-156-164-168-174 sts on needle.
Work next row as follows (from WS): 8 sts in garter st, K3, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K1, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K3, P 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts, K3, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K1, P 11-11-11-13-13-13 sts, K3 and 8 sts in garter st (NOTE! P YO twisted, i.e. in back loop of st instead of front to avoid holes).
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue to work as follows (from RS):
NOTE! See diagram for size!
8 sts in garter st, diagram M.1, K 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts, M.1 and 8 sts in garter st.
AT THE SAME TIME make 1 hole in the 8 sts in garter st each side on every 14th row (every 7th ridge) as follows:
At beg of row (from RS): K3, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO, K3.
At end of row (from RS): K2, K2 tog, 1 dbl YO, K4.
On next row work 8 sts in garter st each side as before (K one YO, slip the other YO off the needle).
AT THE SAME TIME approx. every 4 cm / 1½'' work 2 extra rows back and forth only over the 8 sts in garter st each side (this is done so that the edge in garter st does not tighten the edge of piece).
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures approx. 41-46-51-55-63-70 cm / 16 1/8"-18"-20"-21 5/8"-24 3/4"-27½" - adjust so that next row is knitted from RS - slip the outermost 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts in the left side of piece (seen from RS) on a stitch holder. Work 6-6-6-10-10-10 rows as before (= approx. 2-2-2-4-4-4 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-1½"-1½"-1½") over the remaining 64-69-73-75-77-81 sts on needle. Cut the thread. Then slip these sts on a stitch holder. Slip the 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts from the first stitch holder back on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work armholes as follows from RS:

Size S + M + L: bind off the first 40-42-44 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 39 sts on needle as before. Now insert a marker in the outermost st in the right side of needle (seen from RS - this marks where the sleeve cap is sewn into the armhole). Turn piece, work the 39 sts as before and then cast on 40-42-44 sts at the end of row. Cut the thread.

Size XL + XXL + XXXL: bind off the first 23-24-25 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 66-67-68 sts on needle as before, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on the needle as before, turn piece. Bind off the first 23-24-25 sts at beg of row, work the remaining 43 sts on needle as before. Now insert a marker in the outermost st in the right side of needle (seen from RS - this marks where the sleeve cap is sewn into the armhole). Turn piece, work the 43 sts on needle as before and cast on 23-24-25 new sts at the end of row, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on the needle as before, turn piece. Work the 66-67-68 sts on needle as before and cast on 23-24-25 new sts at the end of row. Cut the thread.

ALL SIZES: Now slip the 64-69-73-75-77-81 sts from the stitch holder back on needle = 143-150-156-164-168-174 sts.
Continue to work as before over all sts (1st row = RS). AT THE SAME TIME increase for collar in the left side seen from RS. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside the outermost 2 sts. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in garter st. The holes in the 8 sts in garter st are made the same way and same place as before. Inc 1 st for collar every 2 cm / 3/4'' a total of 7-8-8-9-9-10 times (= 15-16-16-17-17-18 sts in garter st) = 150-158-164-173-177-184 sts.
When piece measures 56-62-68-74-83-91 cm / 22"-24 3/8"-26 3/4"-29 1/8"-32 3/4"-35 3/4" (measured in left side of piece seen from RS, piece measures approx. 57-63-69-76-85-93 cm / 22½"-24 3/4"-27 1/8"-30"-33½"-36 5/8" in the right side), work 1 row from RS as before. Inc for collar should now be finished. Continue to work with short rows to add extra width mid back as follows (start at beg of row from WS = from neckline):
Work the first 68-70-71-76-76-78 sts on needle and then slip these sts on a stitch holder, work the remaining sts on the needle, turn piece and work back over all sts, turn piece, * work the first 7-7-6-7-6-7 sts on the needle, then slip sts on the same stitch holder and work the remaining sts on the needle, turn piece and work back over all sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 7-7-8-8-10-10 times. Then work the first 25-31-37-33-33-28 sts on needle, slip the sts on the same stitch holder and work the remaining 8 sts on needle. Slip all sts back on needle. Work next row as follows (from RS): 8 sts in garter st, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K 69-76-82-82-86-92 sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-16-17-16-15-16 sts evenly, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3, K2 tog 5-5-5-6-6-6 times, K3 and work 15-16-16-17-17-18 sts in garter st = 116-122-127-133-138-144 sts. K 1 row from WS over all sts. The piece now measures approx. 57-63-69-75-84-92 cm / 22½"-24 3/4"-27 1/8"-29½"-33"-36 1/4" in the left side (seen from RS) and 64-70-77-84-94-102 cm / 25 1/4"-27½"-30 3/8"-33"-37"-40" in the right side, measured in knitting direction! bind off LOOSELY.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as left front piece but reversed, i.e all measurements that were done in the left side of piece (seen from RS) are now done in the right side of piece (seen from RS). When working the 6-6-6-10-10-10 rows under the sleeve adjust so that the first row is worked from WS (instead of RS) and the outermost 79-81-83-89-91-93 sts in the left side of piece (seen from WS, not RS) are slipped on a stitch holder. Continue to follow explanation for sleeve from WS (instead of RS). Finish by working the short rows mid back by starting at beg of row from RS (instead of beg of row from WS).

SLEEVE:
Cast on 54-54-54-60-60-60 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. K 1 round. Continue to work rib K3/P3. When rib measures 6-6-7-7-8-8 cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3 1/8"-3 1/8", K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-4-2-6-6-4 sts evenly = 48-50-52-54-54-56 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Continue to work in the round in stockinette st. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 9-9-11-11-13-13 cm / 3½"-3½"-4 3/8"-4 3/8"-5 1/8"-5 1/8", inc 2 sts mid under sleeve (= 1 st each side of marker). Repeat inc every 4½-3½-2½-2-1½-1½ cm / 1½"-1 1/4"-7/8"-3/4"-½"-½" a total of 9-11-13-15-18-20 times = 66-72-78-84-90-96 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 49-48-47-46-45-44 cm / 19¼''-19''-18½''-18''-17¾''-17¼'' (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width). Now bind off 10 sts mid under sleeve (5 sts each side of marker) and continue to work back and forth in stockinette st. Continue working while AT THE SAME TIME binding off 1 st at beg of every row a total of 11-12-13-15-16-18 times each side. Then bind off 5 sts at beg of the next 2 rows. The piece now measures approx. 58 cm / 22 3/4'' in all sizes. Bind off the remaining sts.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the jacket tog mid back inside the bind off edge so that there are 2 garter st mid back. Sew in the sleeves - NOTE: Sew sleeve cap against the marker on the shoulder and sew the sleeve in each side along the opening of armhole marked with a star in the chart.

I'm working on the xxlg size and completed the armhole separation. However, is the (from the front view) the right side (which it is instructed to complete 10 rows and then cut the thread) supposed to have 3 additional completed rows than the left side? I mean, when binding off 24 stitches and so on, I get less rows on the left edge than on the right edge. Is this correct?

Viktorija 02.09.2019 - 22:29:

Hi, I wonder whether the two extra rows over the 8 sts garter edge are still needed when the increases for the collar start?

DROPS Design 03.09.2019 kl. 08:53:

Dear Viktorija, you need more rows in garter stitch than in stocking stitch for the same height, without these extra rows, the garter stitch edge would contract piece in height. Happy knitting!

Joann Grubb 22.08.2019 - 20:20:

When setting up the left front after the garter stitch rows the pattern says to do 8 st in garter stitch, p3 *k1 1yo **repeat from *-** 5-5-5-6-6-6times. This is incorrect it should say 5-5-5-6-6-6 Times total. If you repeat it 5-5-5-6-6-6 times you have an extra stitch 151 not 150

Sind die cm Angaben ab dem Bündchen oder inklusive des Bündchen?

Liebe Frau Rennert, die Angaben werden von der Anschlagskante gemessen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Shirley 31.10.2018 - 15:13:

Ik ben bezig met het linker voorpand, nu heb ik volgens de uitleg de buitenste 81 st aan de linkerkant op een hulpdraad gezet en vervolgens 6 nld over de overgebleven 69 st gebreid. Maar wanneer ik nu het armsgat brei over de 81 st loopt het telpatroon niet meer gelijk. Ik heb aan de linkerkant 4 nld minder dan aan de rechterkant van het werk. Is dit wel de bedoeling of ik doe ik iets verkeerd?

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 18:01:

Dag shirly,

Dat klopt. Door de verkorte toeren ben je aan de ene kant op een andere plek in M.1 qua hoogte dan aan de andere kant. Dat maakt niet uit als M.1 maar mooi doorloopt op elke kant.

Nicole FORTIN 29.06.2017 - 09:43:

Bonjour, à 51 cm du hauteur totale, j'ai fait le rg 8 du diagramme; puis je tricote 2cm sur les m de droite, soit 4 rgs pour moi, j'ai fait le rg 12 du diagramme - je reprends les m de gauche, je rabats les 44 premières m, je tourne, soit 2 rgs, j'ai fait le rg 10 du diagramme + 44m et reprendre toutes les mailles; mais je me retrouve avec un décalage de 2 rgs dans le dessin de gauche par rapport à celui de droite!...merci de me dire où je me suis trompée; cordialement

DROPS Design 29.06.2017 kl. 14:44:

Bonjour Mme Fortin, à 51 cm (en taille L), vous tricotez 6 rangs sur les 73 m restant sur l'aiguille (soit si vous commencez par le rang 9, les rangs 9 à 14, et vous mettez ces mailles en attente (bas du côté, sous la manche). Vous reprenez les 83 m restant sur l'aiguille, rabattez 44 m et tricotez les 39 m restantes, tournez tricotez ces 39 m et montez 44 m (= vous tricotez 2 rangs sur ces mailles, soit les rangs 9 et 10) coupez le fil. Reprenez ensuite les 73 m en attente = (39+44+73=) 156 m au total. Les diagrammes ne vont plus se suivre en même temps mais continuez les comme avant pour que le motif reste le même. Bon tricot!

Olga Sergeeva 09.09.2016 - 13:53:

Thank you, sorry,but I meant this part, i dont understand this part: increase for collar in the left side seen from RS. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO inside the outermost 2 sts. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in garter st. The holes in the 8 sts in garter st are made the same way and same place as before. What are the outermost sts?and where should I add?

DROPS Design 09.09.2016 kl. 15:02:

Dear Mrs Sergeeva, then for this part, inc for collar at the end of row from RS, before the last 2 sts on needle (= towards top of the jacket on left front piece). Happy knitting!

Olga Sergeeva 08.09.2016 - 23:38:

Hi,sorry,i dont understand where should I add loops after armhole?what are this furthermost loops?apreciate your help,thank you

DROPS Design 09.09.2016 kl. 09:22:

Dear Mrs Sergeeva, After you have worked some rows over the sts at the bottom of piece, put them on a st holder and slip the sts on the left side of piece back onto needle, work 1 row from RS binding off the sts for armhole at beg of row, work to end of row, turn and at the end of next row from WS cast on the new sts for armhole (2 rows in the 3 smaller sizes and 4 rows in the 3 larger sizes) - cut the thread. Now slip all sts back onto needle, ie from bottom to top of jacket = there are same number of sts on needle as before shaping armhole. Happy knitting!
