--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

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.

Todella ärsyttävää että pakkotulostetaan mainos

Sophie 24.10.2018 - 09:14:

Le correctif du 6 Nov 2013 n'a pas été intégré aux explications.

Sophie 24.10.2018 - 08:54:

Bonjour, merci pour votre réponse mais contrairement à ce que vous me dîtes, la correction n'a pas été intégrée aux explications mais elle se trouve au dessous à condition de cliquer sur le lien . Je ne les avais pas vu et j'ai du défaire mon travail.

Sophie 23.10.2018 - 21:16:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas le correctif de nov 2013: à partir de combien de cm je fais le dernier EN MËME TEMPS pour le dos et devant ? 20 cm aussi ? Merci

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 08:07:

Bonjour Sophie, sauf si vous avez imprimé les explications avant la date des corrections, le modèle en ligne est correct et les corrections ont déjà été faites. Cette correction s'applique au début du dos et des devants, quand on continue en jersey avec 5 m point mousse de chaque côté, au 1er rang jersey, on va diminuer à intervalles réguliers. Bon tricot!

Beverly Rodrigues 10.10.2018 - 06:52:

Would it be possible to have this lovely pattern for knitting with 2 needles instead of a circular one? Not keen on the latter but would love to make this garment. Thanks BevR

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Rodrigues, this pattern is entirely worked back andn forth with a circular needle to get enough room for all stitches. You can use a straight needle instead, but remember to keep correct tension since stitches will be more tight. Read more here. Happy knitting!

Sarah 05.10.2018 - 15:12:

Hi, your instruction say to decrease 1st every other row for the neck band. But the decrease explanations say to decrease after the neckband and before the neckband- therefore 2 decreases per row. Which makes more sense so that there is a slope on each side side of the neck band. Can you confirm that is correct?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 15:35:

Dear Sarah, yes it's correct, you decrease 1 st for neck on each side = 2 sts will be decreased for neck on each decrease row until you divide piece for armhole, then only 1 st will be decreased on neck side. Happy knitting!

Yvonne Pearsall 24.08.2018 - 06:54:

I have completed the pattern to the casting off of the 10 sts and assume I have to rejoin the yarn to the back and continue on.

Barbara 07.08.2018 - 05:28:

Hola! Tengo una pregunta respecto de las disminuciones que hay que hacer luego del resorte. La pregunta es si los puntos indicados hay que reducirlos todos en una vuelta o si se van reduciendo 2 puntos del lado derecho hasta alcanzar el número de puntos indicados. Desde ya, muchas gracias!

DROPS Design 07.08.2018 kl. 18:11:

Hola Barbara. Después del elástico las disminuciones se trabajan repartidas en la primera fila en punto jersey ( el número de puntos para disminuir depende de la talla)

Margarita Castillo Martinez 01.08.2018 - 21:06:

Me pueden explicar como se hacen las disminuciones para el cuello del chaleco, soy de México y me encantan sus modelos

DROPS Design 07.08.2018 kl. 19:55:

Hola Margarita. Para el escote del chaleco se utilizan dos técnicas: las disminuciones dentro de la cenefa del escote y las vueltas cortas trabajadas sobre los puntos de la cenefa del escote. Las disminuciones se explican antes del patrón, en un apartado, y este video te podría ayudar a elaborar el escote correcto:
