Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting tension: 19 stitches x 26 rows with Vivaldi , needle size 4 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm. 20 stitches with M.1 and Vivaldi and needle size 4 mm = 10 cm. Remember needle size is only a guide!

Ridge/Garter stitch (back and forth on needle): 1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

Pattern: See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The pattern in the diagram is seen from the right side. NOTE: M.2 is a lace pattern, similar to netting. The diagram is drawn with edge stitches. These edge stitches are in addition to the band stitches in each side and the pattern is worked as follows on body:
Row 2 in diagram: 3 edge stitches in stocking stitch, M.2 over the next 144-159-174-189 stitches, 2 edge stitches in stocking stitch.
Row 4 in diagram: 2 edge stitches in stocking stitch, M.2 over the next 144-159-174-189 stitches, 3 edge stitches in stocking stitch.
Row 6 in diagram: 1 edge stitch in stocking stitch, M.2 over the next 147-162-177-192 stitches, 1 edge stitch in stocking stitch.

Band: The band is worked in garter stitch upwards and continues along neckline - to make sure the band is neat, it should be worked a little tightly.

Decrease tip (for neck): Decrease on inside of 4 edge stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are worked from the right side! 
Decrease as follows after the 4 edge stitches: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, K1, pass the slipped stitch over. Decrease as follows before the 4 edge stitches: K2 together.

Buttonholes: Work 4 buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = Cast off third and fourth stitch from edge, cast on 2 new stitches over the cast off stitches on next row.

Work buttonholes when piece measures:
For all sizes: 4, 12, 20 and 28 cm.

NOTE: The last buttonhole is worked when you have 1 ridge left before starting decreases for neck.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Body: The jacket is worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front. Cast on 178-195-212-229 stitches (incl. 4 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 4 mm and Vivaldi, work 1 ridge. Continue with M.1 (row 1 = right side), but 4 band stitches in each side towards mid front are worked in garter stitch - see description for bands above. NOTE: Remember buttonholes on right band - see description above. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 14 cm change to Silke-Tweed. Purl 1 row from right side. Continue with stocking stitch at the same time as you decrease 11-12-13-14 stitches evenly on 2nd row = 167-183-199-215 stitches. When piece measures 17 cm - adjust to after 1 purled row from wrong side - decrease 10-11-12-13 stitches evenly on row = 157-172-187-202 stitches. Change to Vivaldi and purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then continue with M.2 - see description above - NOTE: begin with row 2 in diagram = right side (only this one time) - the 4 band stitches in each side are continued in garter stitch. When piece measures 28 cm, purl 1 row from right side.

Continue with stocking stitch and Vivaldi to finished length.
At the same time increase 7-8-13-14 stitches evenly on 2nd row of stocking stitch = 164-180-200-216 stitches (NOTE: do not increase over band stitches). Now insert 1 marker thread 43-47-52-56 stitches in from each side = 78-86-96-104 stitches between marker threads on back piece.

Neckline: When piece measures 29 cm decrease for V-neck in each side towards mid front - see Decrease tip: Decrease every 4th row: 1 stitch 14 times.

Armhole: When piece measures 34-35-36-37 cm cast off 6-6-8-8 stitches in each side for armholes (= 3-3-4-4 stitches on each side of marker threads). Each part is finished separately.

Right front piece: Continue to decrease for neck, at the same time decrease for armhole in the side every 2nd row: 3 stitches 0-0-1-1 time, 2 stitches 0-1-1-2 times and 1 stitch 2-2-3-3 times. After all decreases for armholes and V-neck, there are 24-26-26-28 stitches left on shoulder. Cast off the remaining stitches when piece measures 54-56-58-60 cm.

Left front piece: Worked as right, but with decreases for armhole and neck in opposite side.

Back piece: = 72-80-88-96 stitches. Continue to decrease for armholes in each side as for front piece = 68-72-72-76 stitches left on needle. When piece measures 51-53-55-57 cm work 2 ridges over the middle 24 stitches, then cast off the middle 16 stitches for neck. Then decrease towards neck every 2nd row: 1 stitch 2 times - see Decrease tip = 24-26-26-28 stitches left on each shoulder. Cast off the remaining stitches when piece measures 54-56-58-60 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 53-53-70-70 stitches (incl. 1 edge stitch in each side) with needle size 4 mm and Vivaldi and work 1 ridge.

When piece measures 12 cm - adjust to after 1 purled row from wrong side - change to Silke-Tweed and purl 1 row from right side.

NOTE: Row 2 in M.2 is worked as follows: 3 edge stitches in stocking stitch, M.2 over the next 39-42-48-48 stitches, 2 edge stitches in stocking stitch. At the same time, when piece measures 16 cm - adjust to after row 2 in M.2 - increase 1 stitch in each side every 2.5-2.5-2.5-2 cm a total of 14-14-13-15 times = 72-75-79-83 stitches. NOTE: The increased stitches in M.2 are worked in stocking stitch and not in pattern. When piece measures 21 cm - purl 1 row from right side. Then continue with stocking stitch to finished length.

Liebes Drops-Team, kann es sein,dass die deutschen Anleitungen 76-21 und 76-22 vertauscht wurden ? Aber die Diagramme könnten richtig sein.
