BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 148-168-184 (204-224) sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1 with Baby Merino. Work first row as follows from RS: 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band) - see explanation above, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remain, finish with K 2 and 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band). Continue rib like this with 5 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1½" (1½"-2") - REMEMBER BUTTON HOLES on band - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 and work in stockinette st but continue bands in garter st as before. AT THE SAME TIME on first row after rib, dec 32-36-40 (44-52) sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Insert a marker 31-35-39 (43-45) sts in from each side (= 54-62-66 (74-82) sts between markers on back piece). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 7-7½-8 (9-10) cm / 2 3/4"-2 7/8"-3 1/8" (3½"-4"), work next row as follows from RS: 5 sts in garter st, 21-21-27 (27-31) sts in stockinette st, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work until 10-10-12 (12-12) sts remain on needle, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work 5-5-7 (7-7) sts in stockinette st and finish with 5 sts in garter st. On next row cast on 16-16-20 (20-24) new sts over each of the 2 stitch holders with sts = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Continue in stockinette st and in garter st until piece measures 13-14-16 (16-18) cm / 5 1/8"-5½"-6 1/4" (6 1/4"-7"). Now K 4 rows over all sts (= 2 ridges). Then work DOUBLE SEED ST - see explanation above (continue bands in garter st as before). READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! When piece measures 15-17-18 (20-21) cm / 6"-6 3/4"-7" (8"-8 1/4"), work 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle (do not work the other sts on needle), then work 1 row over all sts before working 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle in the other side of piece (this is done so that the V-neck looks nice). Then dec for V-neck - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. every row from RS) a total of 12-13-16 (16-16) times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-17-19 (20-22) cm / 6¼''-6¾''-7½'' (8''-8¾''), work 4 rows in garter st over the middle 18-20-20 (20-20) sts in each side (i.e. over 9-10-10 (10-10) sts on each side of both markers) – work the other sts as before. On next row, bind off the middle 8-10-10 (10-10) sts in each side for armhole and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 46-52-56 (64-72) sts. Work double seed st with 5 sts in garter st in each side (= sleeve edges). AT THE SAME TIME dec for armholes - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) a total of 5-6-6 (6-6) times = 36-40-44 (52-60) sts. Continue in double seed st and in garter st until piece measures 24-26-29 (31-34) cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11 3/8" (12 1/4"-13 3/8"). Now work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 25-27-30 (32-35) cm / 9 3/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/4" (12½"-13 3/4"), bind off the middle 16-18-20 (20-24) sts for neck = 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue with garter st until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13"-14 1/4"), bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Continue with double seed st and in garter st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for armhole in the side as on back piece and continue dec for V-neck as before. After last dec, 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on needle. Work garter st over all sts until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13"-14 1/4") and bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

POCKET FLAP:
Slip the 16-16-20 (20-24) sts from stitch holder on one front piece back on needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2. Work rib K2/P2 with 1 st in garter st and K 2 in each side (seen from RS).
When pocket flap measures 2½-2½-3 (3-3) cm / 7/8"-7/8"-1 1/8" (1 1/8"-1 1/8"), loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.
Sew pocket flap to front piece with duplicate sts in each side. Sew pocket opening to bottom of pocket flap (where sts were put on a stitch holder) on the back of piece. Work another pocket flap the same way on the other front piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew on buttons.

Does the knitted Drops vest with V-line come with instructions to fit a 5-6 year old?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:43:

Dear Susan, this pattern goes to size 3/4 years only. For a vest in a larger size, please look at our patterns for vest, children. Happy knitting!

Sheryl White 29.04.2018 - 01:19:

Is the total decrease for each armpit is only 10 stitches or 20 stitches

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:41:

See answer below :)

Sheryl White 29.04.2018 - 01:10:

Hi I have only ended up with 42 sts for back piece I have recounted and recounted sure I did it right I don't know where I went wrong

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:41:

Dear Mrs White, you bind off for armhole 10 sts on each side, ie 5 sts on each side of each marker, so that only 10 sts will be cast off for back piece (= 5 sts at the beg of back piece, after marker and 5 sts at the end of back piece, before 2nd marker) = 52 sts remain in 2nd size. Happy knitting!

Garson 23.04.2018 - 11:04:

Bonjour comment faire la taille 6 mois exacte j'ai fait le 3 mois et c'est très beau je pense qu'il faut réduire des mailles par rapport aux poches etc.... merci de votre réponse car je voudrais le faire assez vite le modèle

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 11:24:

Bonjour Mme Garson, ce modèle est disponible en taille 1/3 mois et 6/9 mois. Pour ajuster différemment, vous pourrez vous aider des explications et du schéma des mesures en bas de page. Pour toute assistance complémentaire, n'hésitez pas à contacter le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine. Bon tricot!

Isa 15.04.2018 - 09:56:

Bonjour, \r\nj\'aimerai faire ce gilet mais je ne sais pas comment trouver les explications en français. Pouvez-vous m\'aider ? merci

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 10:19:

Bonjour Isa, changez simplement la langue du modèle en sélectionnant français sous la photo - le modèle français est ici. Bon tricot!

Laury Macauley 09.03.2018 - 05:27:

When I get to start BACK PIECE alone,it says that I should have 52sts for 6/9 mos size. But in the previous section,all decreases are from the sides so the Back should have 62sts still. Not sure where I went wrong!. ????

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 09:25:

Dear Mrs Macauley, you inserted markers for the sides 35 sts from each side = 62 sts for back piece between markers. On last row on body you bind off 5 sts on each side of these both markers = 62-10 = 52 sts remain for back piece. Happy knitting!

Anna 23.02.2018 - 15:10:

Buon giorno Jeanette, Volendo fare il gilet misura 6/9 mesi in cotone, quanto cotone vi vorrà? Grazie e complimenti

DROPS Design 23.02.2018 kl. 19:53:

Buongiorno Anna. Nella pagina delle spiegazioni trova un link al convertitore di filato. Deve inserire la qualità da sostituire (BabyMerino), la quantità indicata nel modello per la sua taglia e le verranno presentate le quantità necessarie per i filati dello stesso gruppo di filati. Nel suo caso avrà bisogno di 110 gr di Safran. Buon lavoro!

Maggie 05.02.2018 - 05:16:

After I finish doing the row with the 2rows of garter on the band I don't understand the decrease - It says to decrease 1 st but the directions on how are ambiguous... do I decrease before or after the band/sleeve edge and if so, which band/sleeve edge.... Also, it says I have to work 4 rows in garter stitch over the middle 20 stitches on each side..... this piece is all one - how do i determine sides and which are front and back pieces.

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 10:11:

Dear Maggie, decrease for neck on front pieces as explained under DEC FOR V-NECK AND ARMHOLES IN DOUBLE MOSS ST, ie from RS, dec 1 st after band sts (at the beg of row = right front piece) and dec 1 st before band sts (= at the end of row = left front piece). At the same time, work in garter st over the 9-10 sts (see size) on each side of the markers on the sides = 18-20 sts in garter st on each side for armholes. Happy knitting!

Alexandra 11.01.2018 - 12:55:

Bonjour. je n'aime pas tricoter avec des aihuilles circulaire, je voudrais donc savoir s'il est possible de tricoter ce modèle avec des aiguilles droites et au cas où si les explications changent et lesquelles? Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 11.01.2018 kl. 14:58:

Bonjour Alexandra, ce modèle se tricote en allers et retours sur aiguille circulaire, vous pouvez donc le tricoter sur des aiguilles droites. Retrouvez ici quelques bases pour modifier le cas échéant. Bon tricot!

Lisette Attrup Borg 13.11.2017 - 08:42:

Jeg er kommet til de 1. Indtagninger, hvor der står der skal indtages 1 maske på hver 2. Pind i alt 12 gange. Skal man ikke lave indtagning i begge sider? Eller skifter man side? Så er det 12 masker i begge sider eller kun 6 masker i hver side? Der står nemlig ikke, hvor mange masker, der skal være på forstykket. Jeg strikket den mindste størrelse.

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 15:15:

Hej, du starter indtagningen til V-hals inden du har lukket af til ærmegab, så de 12 m gælder V-hals. Når du starter på rygstykket står der hvordan ærmegabet strikkes, der strikkes på samme måde på begge forstykker. God fornøjelse!
