NOTE: bind off for last button hole when only 2 rows remain before neck dec.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 253-308-359 sts (including 6 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat.
K 3 rows (1st row = WS). Then work as follows (seen from RS): 6 band sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * diagram M.1 (= 17 sts), P 15-14-13 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7-9-11 times, diagram M.1 and 6 band sts in garter st. Continue like this.
When piece measures approx. 3-5-7 cm / 1 1/8"-2"-2 3/4" (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), dec 1 st in every P-section by P tog the first 2 sts.
Repeat dec every 6th row a total of 14-13-12 times – NOTE: Dec alternately at the end and beg of every P-section.

After all dec in P-sections, 155-191-227 sts remain on needle and only 1 P st between every M.1-section (piece now measures approx. 31 cm / 12 1/4'').
Continue until piece measures approx. 34-35-36 cm / 13 3/8"-13 3/4"-14 1/4" (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), now inc 1 st in every P-section by making 1 YO after all P sts, on next row (from WS) K YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
Repeat inc every 6th row a total of 6-5-4 times – NOTE: Inc alternately before and after all P sts by making 1 YO.
When all inc are done, there are 7-6-5 P sts in every P-section and 197-236-271 sts in total on needle.
When piece measures approx. 48-49-50 cm / 19"-19 1/4"-19 3/4" (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), work next row as follows: Work 47-56-64 sts as before (= right front piece), bind off 7-9-11 sts for armhole, work 89-106-121 sts as before (= back piece), bind off 7-9-11 sts for armhole, work the last 47-56-64 sts as before (= left front piece).
Finish each part separately.

= 47-56-64 sts. Then bind off for armhole at beg of every row from the side: 2 sts 2-2-4 times and 1 st 4-5-6 times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 51-53-55 cm / 20"-21"-21 5/8", slip the outermost 10 sts towards mid front on a stitch holder for neck. Then bind off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times.
After all bind offs for armhole and neck, 25-33-36 sts remain on shoulder. There is now ½ repetition of diagram M.1 towards the neck in all sizes, there is also ½ repetition towards the armhole in the smallest size.
Continue pattern as before with 1 st in garter st in each side.
When piece measures approx. 67-70-73 cm / 26 3/8"-27½"-28 3/4" - adjust after 1 full repetition of diagram M.1 - bind off.

Work as left front piece but reversed.

= 89-106-121 sts. Continue to bind off for armholes at beg of every row in each side as on front piece = 73-88-93 sts.
When piece measures approx. 65-68-72 cm / 25½"-26 3/4"-28 3/8" (finish after 1 row from WS when 4 rows remain in diagram M.1), bind off the middle 23-22-21 sts for neck and finish each shoulder (= 25-33-36 sts) separately.
Bind off when the last repetition has been worked.

When piece measures 30-29-27 cm / 11 3/4"-11 3/8"-10 5/8" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders), bind off for sleeve cap at beg of every row in each side: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 6-7-10 times, then bind off 2 sts in each side until piece measures approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4'' – adjust after 1 full repetition of diagram M.1.

Wie kann ich ads Muster mehr prominent / sichtbar machen. Ich mache offensichtlich ein Fehler, kann aber nicht rausfinden wo... Ich vermute es liegt daran, wie man die Maschen rechts strickt. Gibt es vielleicht ein Anleitungsvideo zu dem Muster?

MarieP 20.03.2018 - 18:33:

Merci de votre aide. Les 10 mailles, ce n'est pas EN MÊME TEMPS mais APRES les diminutions de l'emmanchure, si j'ai bien compris. On ne peut plus être à 55 cm de hauteur, non ? RABATTRE pour l'encolure les 1 fois 2 m et 2 fois 1 m, c'est entre les 10 mailles de côté et le reste du tricot ? Ou tu rabats ET APRES tu laisses 10 mailles ?

DROPS Design 21.03.2018 kl. 09:05:

Bonjour MarieP, tout dépend de la taille, vous commencez les diminutions de l'encolure à 55 cm, si celles de l'emmanchure ne sont pas terminées, vous les continuez comme avant jusqu'à la fin. À 55 cm, tricotez les 10 premières m sur l'envers (devant gauche) et glissez-les en attente, tricotez le rang jusqu'à la fin et le rang suivant sur l'endroit. Au rang suivant sur l'envers commencez à rabattre pour l'encolure: 1x2 m et 2 x 1m tous les rangs (= au début de chaque rang sur l'envers). - soit pour l'encolure: 10 m en attente et 4 m rabattues. Bon tricot!

MarieP 20.03.2018 - 12:34:

J'ai glissé les 10 mailles côté boutonnières. vous dites "Rabattre ensuite au début de chaque rang à partir de l'encolure : 1 fois 2 m et 2 fois 1 m." mais ça ne fait que 4 mailles rabattues côté encolure. Que fait -on des 10 mailles ? Si vous pouvez m'expliquer de façon lisible, ... Tout abandonner, quelle pitié ... Tout défaire, quelle horreur ...

DROPS Design 20.03.2018 kl. 13:25:

Bonjour MarieP, quand vous ferez le col, vous reprendrez ces 10 m, relèverez des mailles le long des 4 m rabattues pour l'encolure, puis tout autour de l'encolure jusqu'aux 10 m du devant gauche qui seront reprises, soit environ 110 m pour le col en taille XL/XXXL - cf COL. Bon tricot!

MarieP 20.03.2018 - 12:33:

Bonjour. Je ne comprends pas. Concernant le devant gauche en XXL/XXXL (et il y aura la même question avec le devant droite), c'est incompréhensible. Je me retrouve avec 52 mailles. L'emmanchure ressemble à une encolure. ET il n'y a pas d'encolure. Au secours !

DROPS Design 20.03.2018 kl. 13:23:

Bonjour MarieP, il doit vous rester 50 m après les diminutions de l'emmanchure soit 64 -( 4x2 m et 6x1m)=52 m. On met ensuite en attente 10 m pour l'encolure et on rabat 1 x 2 m et 2x1 m pour l'encolure = il reste 36 m pour l'épaule. Bon tricot!

Suzan 15.06.2016 - 08:59:

Hello! I don't understand how can I do the right front piece. Because I have 10 sts more. So what can I do with the 10 sts which remain the left front piece?

DROPS Design 15.06.2016 kl. 09:18:

Dear Suzan, you should have same number of sts on each front piece = 47-56-64 and 89-101-121 sts for back piece - have you checked number of sts cast off for armholes at the end of body? Happy kniting!

Rigmor Rehnström 13.01.2016 - 09:31:

Hej! Håller på att sticka största storleken och jag ser att garnet kommer inte att räcka. Jag har rätt stickfasthet så det beror inte på det. Har ni räknat rätt på åtgången av garn? Har använt 6 nystan och har inte minskat färdigt ännu. Rigmor

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 16:06:

Hej Rigmor, Om du stickar i DROPS Muskat så bör 14 nystan räcka. Vi har inte fått andra kommentarer om at det inte skulle räcka. Har du kollat så du har 21 m x 28 varv i slätst på 10 x 10 cm ?

Marie 21.12.2015 - 08:10:

Bonjour, je suis arrivée au devant gauche et ne comprends pas comment diminuer l'encolure avec les 10 m en attente. Pouvez-vous m'expliquer plus en détail? merci

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:28:

Bonjour Marie, en début de rang sur l'envers, tricotez ces 10 m et mettez-les en attente sur un fil ou un arrêt de mailles. Tricotez les mailles restantes du rang, tournez et tricotez le rang suivant sur l'endroit. Commencez à rabattre/diminuez les mailles pour l'encolure au rang suivant sur l'envers, soit: 1x2 m et 2x1m. Les mailles en attente sont ensuite reprises à la fin quand on tricote le col. Bon tricot!

Marie 07.12.2015 - 12:25:

Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse très claire. Vous êtes très efficace...comme toujours. Oui effectivement, je m'étais mal exprimée, je voulais dire en début et 6 rgs (end) + haut en fin de cette section.

Marie 07.12.2015 - 08:06:

Bonjour, diminuer 1 m dans chaque section envers tous les 6 rgs, alternativement, veut dire 2 m ens au début des 15 m envers, puis continuer le diagramme et 6 rgs plus haut 2 m ens en fin de rgs? merci

DROPS Design 07.12.2015 kl. 11:47:

Bonjour Marie, vous diminuez d'abord en tricotant ens les 2 premières m env de chaque section env, lors du 2ème rang de diminution, diminuez en tricotant ens à l'env les 2 dernières m de chaque section envers, et continuez ainsi en tricotant ens à l'env les 2 premières m puis les 2 dernières m dans chaque section env (pas en fin de rang). Bon tricot!

Karin 05.07.2015 - 11:42:

6+9(17+14)+17+6=308. Klantigt formulerat: man ska inte upprepa 9 ggr utan sticka 9 ggr totalt.
