PATTERN:
See diagrams M.1 and M.2 – diagrams show pattern from RS. 1 diagram = 1 repetition = 9 sts in width.

Work front piece as follows (from bottom up): Diagram M.1: 2-2-3-3 times, diagram M.2: 1 time, diagram M.1: 1 time, diagram M.2: 1 time and diagram M.1: 2 times.

Work back piece as follows (top down): Diagram M.1: 2 times, diagram M.2: 1 time, diagram M.1: 1 time, diagram M.2: 1 time and diagram M.1: 2-2-3-3 times.

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

JACKET:
First work right front piece and inc for sleeve, then work left front piece and sleeve, then slip these tog and work down back piece. Worked back and forth on a circular needle to make room for all the sts.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 49-58-67-76 sts (includes 1 edge st in the side and 3 band sts towards mid front) on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Cotton Light or "Belle". K 4 rows (1st row = WS), then P 1 row from WS.
Work next row as follows: 3 band sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, PATTERN - see explanation above - until 1 edge st remains, work this in garter st. Continue like this. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 26-26-27-27 cm / 10 1/4"-10 1/4"-10 5/8"-10 5/8", cast on 20-20-11-11 new sts for sleeve at the end of next row towards the side (fewer sts in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width) = 69-78-78-87 sts.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Work sleeve sts in pattern but work the outermost 3 sts in garter st. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 27-27-29-29 cm / 10 5/8"-10 5/8"-11 3/8"-11 3/8", bind off for 1 button hole by K tog 2nd and 3rd st from edge and then making 1 YO. Repeat bind off for button hole when piece measures 30-30-32-32 cm / 11 3/4"-11 3/4"-12½"-12½".
When piece measures 31-31-33-33 cm / 12 1/4"-12 1/4"-13"-13", slip the outermost 12 sts towards mid front on a stitch holder for neck. Then bind off at beg of every row from mid front: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 4 times = 49-58-58-67 sts remain on shoulder.
Continue to work as before with 1 st towards mid front in garter st until piece measures approx. 46-46-51-51 cm / 18"-18"-20"-20" - adjust so that last row is worked from RS and is the row marked with an arrow in diagram M.1. Now insert a marker (= mid on top shoulder). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work the 2 next to last rows in diagram M.1, put piece aside.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as right piece but reversed. NOTE: Do not bind off for button hole.

BACK PIECE:
1st row = WS (= last row in diagram M.1). Work sts from right front piece on to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6, cast on 34 new sts (= back of neck) and work sts from left front piece on to circular needle = 132-150-150-168 sts in total.
Continue with PATTERN as explained above, but work 4 rows in garter st over the 34 new sts before they are also included into pattern!
When piece measures 20-20-24-24 cm / 8"-8"-9½"-9½" from marker on shoulder, bind off the 20-20-11-11 sleeve sts in each side (bind off at beg of the next 2 rows) = 92-110-128-146 sts remain on needle. Continue the pattern with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
When working diagram M.1 for the last time, finish with the row marked with a star. Piece now measures approx. 45-45-50-50 cm / 17 3/4"-17 3/4"-19 3/4"-19 3/4" from marker on shoulder.
Now K 3 rows (1st row = WS). Then LOOSELY bind off with K from RS – NOTE: It is important to avoid a tight bind off edge.

NECK EDGE:
Knit up approx. 38-41 sts (from RS, incl sts on stitch holders) on circular needle size 4 mm along neckline of RIGHT FRONT PIECE until begin of BACK PIECE (= the 34 new stitches in garter st) . K 3 rows back and forth, then bind off. Repeat along LEFT FRONT PIECE.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons.

This pattern has been corrected. .

BACK PIECE:
1st row = WS (= last row in diagram M.1). Work sts from right front piece on to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6, cast on 34 new sts (= back of neck) and work sts from left front piece on to circular needle = 132-150-150-168 sts in total.
Continue with PATTERN as explained above, but work 4 rows in garter st over the 34 new sts before they are also included into pattern!

A friend wore this jacket and I loved it so I purchased the yarn to make two of them. Didn’t take in to account that my friend is at least 5” taller than I am, so the bottom edge of the jacket will not fall where it does on the model. I sent in a Question to see if omitting one M1 repeat will be possible to shorten the jacket. Hope so, as I’ve searched and haven’t found another I like as well!

Agnes 06.06.2018 - 15:32:

Sorry, I forgot my email address when asking my question. I am 5’2” and think this jacket will be too long in the body. Can I omit one M1 pattern repeat in the body of the jacket? Cannot ask a local shop. I purchased yarn directly from you. Thank you.

Dear Agnes, see answer in your previous comment :)

Agnes Hiener 06.06.2018 - 15:25:

I am 5’ 2” and think this jacket will be too long for me. Can I leave out one of the M1 pattern repeats to make the body of the jacket correct for my petite frame? I will be making size L. I purchased my yarn from you directly, cannot get advice from a local shop. Thank you.

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 15:31:

Dear Mrs Hiener, feel free to adjust the height to your own size. And remember you can always contact your DROPS store, even per mail or telephone or even on social medias. Happy knitting!

Barbara 25.12.2017 - 23:16:

Can’t explain my confusion in the space provided. How many characters am I allowed to ask a question. You should say.

DROPS Design 26.12.2017 kl. 20:10:

Dear Barbara, besides asking questions here, you can also get help in the DROPS Workshop Facebook group, and in person in the store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy crafting!

Viktoria 30.07.2016 - 12:49:

Liebes Drops-Team! Ich habe große Probleme mit den Abkürzungen am Hals. Mein Muster verschiebt sich, wenn ich die angegebene Maschenzahl beachte. Beachte ich die Maschenzahl nicht und stricke bei den Abkürzungen nach dem Muster, so stimmt wiederum meine Maschenzahl nicht! (= das dürfte dann an den Umschlägen liegen). Wie geht man bei den Abkürzungen am Hals am Besten vor? Viele Grüße Viktoria

DROPS Design 01.08.2016 kl. 07:54:

Liebe Viktoria, das Muster darf sich nicht verschieben, Sie legen die Maschen still beziehungsweise ketten ab und stricken dann genau in dem Muster weiter wie vorher.

Katrine 09.06.2015 - 18:50:

Jeg forstår ikke halskanten. Man har strikket 4 p ret i nakken og så skal man tage ca. 100 masker op i halsen og strikke 3 pinde ret. så bliver der 7 pinde ret i nakken. Det er der ikke på billede. Det ser ud til at der kun skal tages masker i de forreste halskanter, så er 100 for meget. ?

DROPS Design 07.08.2015 kl. 14:04:

Hej Katrine, jeg tror du har ret og de 3 pinde ret som står beskrevet under Halskant skal kun strikkes frem og tilbage over halsmaskerne på forstykket. Vi kommer tilbage med hvor mange m man skal strikke over på hvert forstykke.

Annalisa 06.06.2015 - 16:23:

Ho lavorato davanti dx e sin insieme a specchio. Ora devo fare lo scollo e devo trasferire 12 maglie per ciascuna delle due parti su un ferro ausiliario. Lavoro davanti sin, faccio la diminuzione prevista di 2 maglie e trasferisco le 12 sul ferro ausiliario? Oppure trasferisco le 12 maglie e comincio le diminuzioni dopo 2 ferri? Inoltre, posso fare le diminuzioni lavorando due maglie insieme sia per il davanti dx che per quello sinistro? Grazie.

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 09:15:

Buongiorno Annalisa. Per lo scollo, deve prima mettere in attesa le 12 m, poi inizia le diminuzioni. Per le diminuzioni, deve intrecciare 2 m per 2 volte, poi diminuisce 1 m per 4 volte. Sulla striscia grigia, alla destra della fotografia, cliccando sulla voce video, trova i video che possono aiutarla in questi passaggi. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour est-il normal d'arriver a 46 cm pour le devant droit et de finir que part un dessein diagrammeM1 merci de me donner une réponse rapidement modéle du tricot 136-6 de chez drops

DROPS Design 22.05.2015 kl. 10:28:

Bonjour Mme Sassano, en largeur vous devez avoir plus d'un motif de M.1 (devant + manche), en hauteur, vous devez ajuster pour que le dernier rang du devant tricoté soit celui avec une flèche. Pensez à bien vérifier et conserver la tension indiquée soit 21 m x 28 rangs point fantaisie = 10 x 10 cm. Bon tricot!
