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

GARTER ST (in the round on double pointed needles):
1 ridge = 2 rounds * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

The garment is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Work from mid front on left part, cast off for armhole and continue until mid back before casting off all sts. Then work the right part the same way but reversed, from mid front. The two parts are sewn tog when finished.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 90-93-96-99-102-105 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with Symphony or Melody. Work 6 rows in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Work next row from RS as follows: 5 sts in garter st, work in stocking st until 12 sts remain, finish with 12 sts in garter st. Continue like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 31-36-41-46-51-56 cm (adjust so that next row is from RS), work 6 rows in garter st over all sts.
Work next row as follows: Work the bottom 55-57-59-60-62-63 sts, slip the next 23-24-25-27-28-30 sts for armhole on a stitch holder if a vest is being worked - if a jacket is being worked, cast these sts off, work the remaining 12 sts on the needle in garter st. On next row cast on same no of sts that where cast off over sts on stitch holder. Then work 6 rows in garter st over all 90-93-96-99-102-105 sts on needle. Work as before armhole until piece measures 47-52-58-63-69-74 cm. K 4 rows over all sts. LOOSELY cast off = mid back of jacket. The piece measures approx. 48-53-59-64-70-75 cm - measured in the knitting direction!

Cast on and work as left part but reversed.

SLEEVE (for jacket):
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm. Work 4 rounds in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Insert a marker at beg of round. Then work in stocking st. When piece measures 10 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc every 5-4½-4-4-3-3 cm a total of 8-9-10-10-11-12 times = 46-50-54-56-60-64 sts. When piece measures
51-51-50-49-47-45 cm, cast off 6 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. 3 sts on each side of marker). Then continue back and forth on needle and cast off for sleeve cap at the beg of every row in each side as follows: 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 1-2-3-4-6-8 times. Then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 57-58-59-59-59-60 cm, cast off 3 sts 1 time in each side. Cast off. Now piece measures approx. 58-59-59-60-60-61 cm.

Knit up 46-48-50-54-56-60 sts around the armhole (incl sts on stitch holder) on double pointed needles size 6 mm and work 2 rounds in garter st. Cast off.

Buonasera,non sto realizzando questo modello ma vorrei sapere cosa si intende negli scalfi quando dite a ferri alterni.io praticamente lo intendo come ferri diritti di andata:aumento,ritorno,poi altro ferro diritto,altro rovescio,praticamente finisco al terzo diritto.faccio bene?grazie siete sempre gentili

DROPS Design 31.08.2017 kl. 00:45:

Buongiorno Cecilia. Se le spiegazioni indicano di aumentare a ferri alterni, vuol dire un ferro sì e uno no, quindi p.es: ferro di andata aumento, ferro di ritorno, ferro di andata aumento. Buon lavoro!

Fournier 22.05.2014 - 22:14:

Bonjour; je n'arrive pas a savoir combien il faut de pelote. Je ne l'ai pas vu marqué dans le schéma. En général c'est marqué ou dans les explication? Cordialement

DROPS Design 23.05.2014 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Mme Fournier, la quantité de laine, les aiguilles et l'échantillon requis sont indiquées, au poids, à droite de la photo sous l'onglet "Fournitures". Soit par ex. pour la veste sans manches en taille S 400 g / 50 g la pelote Symphony = 8 pelotes. Bon tricot!

Hoi Corinne. Je hebt eerder gebreid: 5 st ribbelst, tricotst tot de 12 laatste st en deze in ribbelst breien. Hier ga je mee door. Dus 55... st breien (5 ribbelst + 50 tricotst enzovoort). In de volgende nld zet je weer 23... st op voor boven het armsgat, brei de nld uit en brei dan 6 nld ribbelst over alle st. Brei dan verder zoals voor de armsgaten: 5 ribbelst, tricotst, 12 ribbelst tot 47... cm.

Nicole Attaf 05.08.2013 - 10:28:

Bjr je voudrais faire ce modèle en drop verdi print mais combien de pelote me faut il ? merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 05.08.2013 kl. 10:51:

Bonjour Mme Attaf, sur la base d'un échantillon analogue (15 m x 20 rangs en jersey = 10 x 10 cm), calculez la longueur totale de fil nécessaire à la réalisation de votre taille et comparez à la longueur d'une pelote de Verdi. N'hésitez pas à vous faire aider par votre magasin DROPS habituel. Bon tricot !

HAMILA 10.11.2012 - 19:29:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas ce que je dois acheter comme aiguille pour faire ce model ? aiguille circulaire n06 ? plus doubles pointes ??? pouvez vous m'aider svp pour savoir ce que je dois acheter comme aiguille ? merci

DROPS Design 12.11.2012 kl. 09:15:

Bonjour Hamila, pour ce modèle, vous aurez besoin d'une aiguille circulaire de 80 cm en n°6, et d'un jeu d'aiguilles doubles pointes (20 cm) n° 6 pour les manches. Bon tricot !

Heidi Hasekamp 04.10.2012 - 13:02:

Hallo, kann ich beide Teile gleich in einem Stück arbeiten bei dieser Jacke?

DROPS Design 05.10.2012 kl. 09:00:

Hallo Frau Hasekamp, es ist sicher möglich, aber wir haben es vorgezogen in 2 Stücken zu stricken, da das Strickstück sehr gross wird.

Ana Rosa Alamilla 26.06.2012 - 19:25:

Soy principiante y no entiendo el patron me gustaria un poco mas sencillo no entiendo como empezar y donde va la cisa y de donde se sierra cuantas partes son 3 o 2 gracias si me reponden mis dudas me encato el sueter y me gustaria hacerlo y me gustaria un video de la forma de hacerlo

DROPS Design 27.06.2012 kl. 06:12:

Ana Rosa, esta es una prenda con opción a tejerla sin mangas (= chaleco) o con mangas (= saco), tejida lateralmente en 2 partes las cuales son cosidas al centro de la espalda cuando está terminada. Las instrucciones te dicen cómo y cuando trabajar la sisa, sea para el chaleco o para el saco. Feliz tricot!
