GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.
INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st on each side of every marker as follows: Work until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, K 2 (marker is between these sts), make 1 YO. On next row K YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
--------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in garter st - See explanation above - back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 168-184-204-224-252-280 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with 2 threads Kid-Silk (to avoid a tight cast on edge). Then work back and forth with 1 thread Kid-Silk (1st row = RS). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 6-6-6-6-7-7 cm, insert 2 markers in the piece; 42-46-51-56-63-70 sts in from each side (= 84-92-102-112-126-140 sts between markers on back piece). Move the markers upwards when working. On next row, inc 1 st on each side of each marker - Read INCREASE TIP above = 4 new sts. Repeat inc every 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm a total of 4 times = 184-200-220-240-268-296 sts.
Continue to work until piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm. On next row cast off 2-3-4-5-6-7 sts for armholes on each side of every marker = 4-6-8-10-12-14 cast off sts in each side. Now divide the piece and finish each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 88-94-102-110-122-134 sts. Remove the markers in the sides and insert new markers at beg and end of row (where to knit up sleeves later). Continue in garter st until piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm. On next row from RS, cast off the middle 32-36-38-40-42-42 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 2 sts on next row from neck = 26-27-30-33-38-44 sts remain on the shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 44-47-51-55-61-67 sts. Insert a marker at end of row (where to knit up sleeves later). Continue in garter st until piece measures 44-46-47-49-50-52 cm. Then cast off for neck at the beg of every row from RS (= every other row) as follows: Cast off 8-10-12-12-14-14 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, and 2 sts 2 times. Then cast off 1 st every other row from RS (= every 4th row) 3-3-2-3-2-2 times = 26-27-30-33-38-44 sts remain on shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams tog.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle as follows: Knit up from RS approx. 70 to 100 sts between markers along one armhole (NOTE: Do not knit up sts over the cast off sts for armhole). On next row adjust no of sts to 68-74-78-82-86-92. Then work in garter st. When piece measures 3-3-3-3-4-4 cm, dec 1 st (by K 2 sts tog) in each side of piece. Repeat dec every 4-3½-3-3-2½-2 cm a total of 12-14-15-16-17-19 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 sts. Continue in garter st until piece measures 54-53-53-53-51-50 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width), loosely cast off all sts. Sew sleeve seam inside 1 edge st, NOTE: The top part of the sleeve should be sewn to the cast off edge on each side of back and front piece. Knit up another sleeve in the other side of piece.

RIGHT BAND:
Worked back and forth on needle as follows: Knit up from RS approx. 100 to 120 sts inside 1 edge st along mid front on right front piece. K 1 row from WS while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 104-109-109-118-118-118.

Which yarn is more suitable for substituting kid-silk in this pattern, Lace or Alpaca ? Also, this pattern says the required needle is 3 when the instructions for this yarn (for the same gauge) suggest 3,5 .

DROPS Design 01.04.2018 kl. 18:52:

Dear Ginny, if you look for a really light, almost featherweight sweater, I would suggest to try the Drops Lace yarn, which is more alike (in its length/ 50 grams), than the Alpaca, however neither will give you the lovely halo effect Kid Silk would. As for gauge, since everybody knits slightly differently, we always suggest you make a swatch, wash it, check its size and stitch count and adjust your needle size accordingly. Happy Knitting!

Würde denn aber die Gefahr bestehen, dass die Wolle dann nicht mehr so schön "fluffig" aussieht?

DROPS Design 06.09.2017 kl. 11:19:

Liebe Sarah, das können Sie mit Ihrem Maschenprobe mal versuchen, so haben Sie eine Idee wie Sie am besten machen Sollen. Errinern Sie sich, daß Ihr DROPS Laden Ihnen gerne weiter helfen kann, auch per Mail or Telefon. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sarah Adler 04.09.2017 - 19:15:

Hallo, und vielen Dank für die Hilfe. Noch eine Frage: in der Anleitung steht nichts zum feuchten Spannen der Jacke. Empfiehlt sich das bei der Mohairwolle nicht? Vielen Dank schon einmal für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 05.09.2017 kl. 08:25:

Liebe Frau Adler, dies hängt von jeder Strickerin ab, einige spannen jedes Strickstück und andere nicht. Gerne können Sie das mit Ihrem DROPS Laden besprechen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sarah 28.08.2017 - 07:04:

Hallo, vielen Dank für das schöne Strick Muster! Leider verstehe ich das einstricken der Ärmel nicht ganz. Erst Kette ich Maschen unter dem Ärmel ab, aber später nehme ich keine wieder auf. Wo soll ich die abgeketteten Maschen annähen? Vielen Dank schon einmal für die Hilfe!

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 09:19:

Liebe Sarah, die Ärmel werden von oben nach unten gestrickt (Maschen werden aufgenommen) - dann nur wie beschrieben abnehmen. Das obere Teil des Ärmels wird am Vorder- und Rückenteil an der Stelle angenäht, an der die Maschen für das Armloch abgekettet wurden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anna 29.10.2016 - 08:38:

Bonjour, est-il possible de tricoter ce modèle avec la laine brusched alpaca silk? Au lieu de kid silk, merci.

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 09:42:

Bonjour Anna, ce modèle se tricote avec 1 seul fil Kid-Silk ( = groupe A), alors que Brushed Alpaca Silk appartient au groupe C (on peut l'utiliser dans les modèles tricotés avec 2 fils Kid-Silk, ce qui n'est pas le cas ici). Voir également ici. Bon tricot!

Sara 22.08.2016 - 15:55:

Buongiorno se volessi fare questo modello con la lana baby Alpaca? Potrei altrimenti utilizzare un altro filato del gruppo A?

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 16:32:

Buongiorno Sara. Può utilizzare il filato Baby Alpaca silk o un altro filato del gruppo A. Si ricordi di verificare la correttezza del campione. Al seguente link trova alcune indicazioni che la possono aiutare per la sostituzione di filati. Buon lavoro !

Maud Meissner 13.02.2016 - 09:43:

Hej. Stickfastigheten som beskrivs är 23 m x 30m i slätst för 10x10 cm, men koftan stickas ju i rätstickning och då blir det ju ca 48 m för 10 cm på längden. Jag blir därför orolig att garnmängden som nämns inte räcker? Med vänlig hälsning, Maud

DROPS Design 15.02.2016 kl. 09:19:

Hej. Garnåtgången är uträknad efter att den stickas i rätstickning så garnet ska räcka. Lycka till!

Chris 20.01.2016 - 22:36:

The instructions are a bit confusing.

DROPS Design 21.01.2016 kl. 11:21:

Dear Chris, please feel free to ask here your questions, and remember your DROPS store will also provide you help even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Giulia 06.09.2015 - 23:36:

Salve, se io volessi fare questo giacchino in cotone, che filato mi consiglierebbe?

DROPS Design 07.09.2015 kl. 07:47:

Buongiorno Giulia. Può usare il Cotton Viscose (è un cotone lucido) oppure il Safran. Buon lavoro!
