SHORT ROWS:
* Work until 1st marker, turn, tighten yarn and work return row, work until 2nd marker, turn, tighten yarn and work return row, work all sts, turn and work return row*, repeat from *-*.
1 repetition = 2 rows at the top and 6 rows at the bottom.
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
Worked back and forth on needle from mid front on left front band. The entire piece is worked in K sts on all rows (= garter st).
All measurements should be done when piece is laying flat.
Cast on 92-95-98-102-105-109 sts on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. K 4 rows over all sts (1st row = RS).
Without working next row now insert 2 markers in the piece as follows (from RS): 1st marker after 79-81-83-86-88-91 sts and 2nd marker after a total of 89-92-95-99-102-106 sts (= 3 sts after last marker at the top by neck).
Then start working SHORT ROWS – see explanation above - until piece measures 6-6½-7-7½-8-8½ cm / 2 3/8"-2½"-2 3/4"-2 7/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/4" measured at the top (= by neck) and approx. 16-17½-19-20½-22-23½ cm / 6 1/4"-6 7/8"-7½"-8 1/8"-8 3/4"-9 1/4" at the bottom (stop after 1 row worked from RS).
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Insert a marker at the top by neck – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Work the top 27-29-30-32-34-36 sts (= sleeve), slip the bottom 65-66-68-70-71-73 sts on a stitch holder (do not work them first). Continue working short rows as before over sleeve (but now there are only 14-15-15-16-17-18 sts before 1st marker) until piece measures approx. 7-7½-8-8½-9-9½ cm / 2 3/4"-2 7/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/4"-3½"-3 3/4" from marker at top by neck and approx. 21-22½-24-25½-27-28½ cm / 8 1/4"-8 7/8"-9½"-10"-10 5/8"-11 1/4" at the bottom (= along sleeve edge), stop after 1 row worked from WS, cut the yarn.
Slip sts on another stitch holder and slip sts from the first stitch holder back on needle = 65-66-68-70-71-73 sts.

K back and forth (beg from WS) over these sts for 4-6-8-10-12-14 cm / 1½"-2 3/8"-3 1/8"-4"-4 3/4"-5½" (stop after 1 row worked from WS). Now work all sts back on needle (1st row = RS) = 92-95-98-102-105-109 sts.
Move the measurement marker that was inserted at the top by neck to where you are now – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Work 1 row from WS and then continue with short rows as before until piece measures approx. 10-11-12-13-14-15 cm / 4''-4 3/8''-4¾''-5 1/8''-5½-6'' from marker at the top by neck (and approx. 30-33-36-39-42-45 cm / 11 3/4"-13"-14 1/4"-15 1/4"-16½"-17 3/4" at the bottom (stop after 1 row from RS which was worked over all sts). Move the measurement marker that was inserted at the top by neck to where you are now – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Work the top 27-29-30-32-34-36 sts (= sleeve), slip the bottom 65-66-68-70-71-73 sts on a stitch holder (do not work them first). Continue working short rows as before over sleeve until piece measures approx. 7-7½-8-8½-9-9½ cm / 2 3/4"-2 7/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/4"-3½"-3 3/4" from marker at top by neck and approx. 21-22½-24-25½-27-28½ cm / 8 1/4"-8 7/8"-9½"-10"-10 5/8"-11 1/4" at the bottom (= along sleeve edge), stop after 1 row worked from WS, cut the yarn.
Slip sts on another stitch holder and slip sts from the previous stitch holder back on needle = 65-66-68-70-71-73 sts.

K back and forth (beg from WS) over these sts for 4-6-8-10-12-14 cm / 1½"-2 3/8"-3 1/8"-4"-4 3/4"-5½" (stop after 1 row worked from WS). Now work all sts back on needle (1st row = RS) = 92-95-98-102-105-109 sts. Move the measurement marker that was inserted at the top by neck to where you are now – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

K 1 row from WS over all sts. Then work short rows as before over all sts until piece measures approx. 5-5½-6-6½-7-7½ cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2 3/8"-2½"-2 3/4"-2 7/8" from marker at the top by neck and approx. 15-16½-18-19½-21-22½ cm / 6"-6½"-7"-7 3/4"-8 1/4"-8 7/8" at the bottom.
Short rows are now finished.

Hola! No entiendo muy bien cómo hacer las vueltas cortas en este modelo. ¿Cuántas veces hay que girar la labor entre marcadores antes de tejer de nuevo una vuelta completa? Gracias de antemano por su respuesta

DROPS Design 14.04.2017 kl. 13:00:

Hola Teresa. este modelo se trabaja de lado a lado con vueltas cortas a lo largo de toda la prenda. Las filas cortas se trabajan como sigue: fila 1 - trabajamos hasta MP1, filas 2 - trabajamos hasta MP2, filas 3 y 4 trabajamos sobre todos los pts.

Jen 31.10.2015 - 06:46:

I assume this pattern is in two pieces although pattern does not say this.

DROPS Design 31.10.2015 kl. 18:11:

Dear Jen, the vest is worked in once piece starting from mid on left front band (casting on row) and ending on mid on right front band (casting off row). Sleeves are then worked while sts for bottom of body are slipped in a st holder/thread. Happy knitting!

FERRI ACCORCIATI: * Lavorare fino al primo segnapunti, girare, tirare il filo e lavorare indietro, lavorare fino al secondo segnapunti, girare, tirare il filo e lavorare indietro, lavorare tutte le m., girare e lavorare indietro *, ripetere da *-*. 1 ripetizione = 2 f. in alto e 6 f. in basso. Non capisco cosa vuol dire 1 ripetizione=2 f. in alto e 6 f. in basso. Attendo vostre notizie in merito. Grazie per la cortesia.

DROPS Design 09.02.2015 kl. 14:10:

Buongiorno Morena. Quando lavora i ferri accorciati, lavora solo su un certo numero di m, non su tutte quelle sul ferro. Nel suo caso inizia a lavorare i ferri accorciati partendo dal basso del lavoro. Una volta completate le indicazioni tra gli asterischi, avrà lavorato 2 ferri sulle m della parte più vicino al collo e 6 ferri sulle m del bordo inferiore. Il seguente video potrebbe aiutarla a capire meglio il risultato finale. Buon lavoro!

Moin ein Gruß aus dem Norden.Ich komme mit dieser Anleitung nicht klar. 1. verstehe ich den Rapport nicht. 2. Bei einer verkürzten Reihe bis zur 2. Markierung was mache ich mit den restlichen 2 bei mir 3 Maschen.Zumal eine verkürzte Reihe nach diesem Muster bei mir oben 9,5 cm ergeben im unteren Teil aber nur 17 cm muß man die verkürzte Reihe 2mal stricken um auf 23,5 cm zu kommen? Danke für eine schnelle Antwort Gruß Petra

DROPS Design 06.03.2014 kl. 01:13:

Liebe Petra, es sind tatsächlich noch 3 M übrig, das wurde nun korrigiert. Sie stricken erst bis zum 1. Markierer, dann wenden Sie mitten in der R und stricken zurück. Dann stricken Sie bis zum 2. Markierer, wenden wieder und stricken wieder zurück. Dann stricken Sie 1 R über ALLE M, d.h. auch über die letzten 3 M, und wieder zurück. Sie wdh. das alles so lange, bis Sie das angegebene Maß erhalten haben.

Ik ben bijna klaar met het breien van dit leuke vest. Volgens het patroon is het rechtervoorpand (wat je als laatste breit) 1 cm korter/smaller dan het linkervoorpand. Waarom is dit? Het lijkt mij niet logisch. En: is er bewust gekozen voor een vrouwensluiting (rechts over links)? Ben ik gewoon even nieuwsgierig naar.

DROPS Design 18.10.2013 kl. 16:25:

Het aantal steken waarmee u begint en eindigt is gelijk, dus de panden zouden even lang moeten zijn. Een verschil in lengte kan ontstaan als u te strak of los opzet dan wel afkant - er is dus geen bewust verschil.

Kelly 02.06.2012 - 21:32:

Lovely design, as usual. Doesn't have to be complicated to look good.

Susana 23.04.2012 - 21:07:

Precioso y muy original ? Gracias por traducir a español los patrones

Betty Van Kruining 19.04.2012 - 21:34:

Nee, ik heb niet met Safran gebreid. Ik heb met Paris gebreid zoals in het patroon aangegeven staat.

DROPS Design 23.04.2012 kl. 12:01:

Ja, Paris natuurlijk ;o) (Te druk geweest denk ik!). Ik heb zoals eerder geschreven uw opmerking doorgestuurd naar ons Design Team. Zij beslissen als er een aanpassing nodig is.
