GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

GARTER ST (in the round on needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

Inc 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Work until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, work 2 sts (marker is between these 2 sts), make 1 YO. On next row work YO twisted to avoid holes.

Dec as follows from RS: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows from WS: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, P 2 twisted tog (i.e. work in back loop of sts instead of front), P 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), P 2 tog.

Cast off from RS for 3 buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = cast off 5th and 6th st from mid front and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts. Cast off for buttonholes when piece measures:
SIZE S: 24, 32, 40 cm.
SIZE M: 25, 33, 41 cm.
SIZE L: 24, 33, 42 cm.
SIZE XL: 25, 34, 43 cm.
SIZE XXL: 24, 34, 44 cm.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 140-156-172-192-212-232 sts with Alaska on circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - for 8-8-8-9-9-9 cm. On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm, work in stocking st - but work the outermost 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts in each side in garter st (= band mid front). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING.
Continue in stocking st with 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 9-9-9-10-10-10 cm. Insert a marker 38-42-46-52-57-62 sts in from each side (= 64-72-80-88-98-108 sts between markers on back piece). Move the markers upwards when working. Now inc 1 st on each side of every marker - Read INCREASE TIP above = 4 sts inc on row. Repeat inc every 4-4-4½-4½-4½-4½ cm 4 more times (a total of 5 times) = 160-176-192-212-232-252 sts (= 74-82-90-98-108-118 sts between markers on back piece) - AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 24-25-24-25-24-24 cm cast off for 1st buttonhole on right band - READ BUTTONHOLES.
Continue until piece measures 29-30-31-32-33-34 cm. Then cast off 3 sts on each side of every marker for armholes (i.e. 6 sts cast off in each side) = 148-164-180-200-220-240 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 36-38-40-42-44-44 sts on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm with Alaska. Work in garter st for 8 cm. Then switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm and continue in stocking st.
Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 9 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc 10-11-12-12-13-15 more times every 3½-3-3-3-2½-2 cm (= a total of 11-12-13-13-14-16 times) = 58-62-66-68-72-76 sts. When piece measures 48-48-47-47-46-46 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap), cast off 3 sts on each side of marker (= 6 sts cast off mid under sleeve) = 52-56-60-62-66-70 sts remain on needle.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 252-276-300-324-352-380 sts. Insert 1 marker in every transition between body and sleeves (= 4 markers), move the markers upwards when working. Then work in stocking st with 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts in garter st in each side - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row from RS, beg dec for RAGLAN - see explanation above. Dec every other row a total of 18-18-18-20-20-20 times, then every row 2-4-6-4-6-8 times.

On winter morning when I get to the Yoke I am having trouble understanding....the pattern says at the same time etc. To slip the first 8 stitches onto a holder...do I knit the stitches first to carry along my working yarn? When I complete the row do I put 8 from the other side onto a holder or just the 3....thanks Mary-Lynne

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 08:05:

Dear Mary-Lynne, yes you can work the sts to avoid cutting the yarn: work next RS row and slip the first 8 sts on a thread, work row as before to the end, turn and work the first 8 sts on a thread, work row as before to the end, turn and continue slipping sts on a thread on each side: 3 sts 1 fime, 2 sts 2 times and 1 stitch until raglan decreases are done. Happy knitting!

Anna 16.02.2019 - 14:42:

Great wool, love the dense texture when knit to tension advised and love the slight variations in color. I think this will age well without much shedding, unlike the Alpaga that I recently used and which is unwearable due to shedding

Anna 16.02.2019 - 14:40:

I’ve knitted your Winter morning pattern but the yoke/neck instructions are very Confusing. Having thought that I had followed them correctly I find that the neck is too large and am ripping it out in order to decrease the nonof stitches « approx 80-120 stitches » along neckline. What does « when all reglan decks are done » mean: I.e the number of decreases mentioned or the length or when there are no stitches left between the 6 stitches on either side where decreases take place?

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 09:41:

Dear Anna, means when you have decreased every other row a total of 18-20 times (see size) and every row a total of 2-8 times (sts for neck should be on a thread and dec for neck should have been done too). Happy knitting!

Gerda 04.11.2018 - 20:50:

Ben bij de hals aangekomen. Ik houd 142 steken over i.p.v. 80 tot 120. Ik maat xl aangehouden. Heb de tekst diverse keren doorgelezen. Ik snap niet wat ik fout heb gedaan. Raglan 20x gemindered en daarna 4x iedere naald. Hoe nu verder?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:14:

Dag Gerda,

Wanneer je het lijf en de mouwen bij elkaar zet op de naalden heb je 324 steken op en na alle raglanminderingen (8 keer(20+4)) kom ik op 132 steken. Dat is inderdaad nog steeds meer dan 120, maar je kunt de aangegeven steken om naar te minderen (dus 96 voor maat xl) aanhouden.

Dee 02.09.2017 - 19:09:

I am knitting pattern x-390. I am knitting the sleeves flat and will seam them up when finished. I have done the cuff in garter stitch for 3". The pattern says to begin increases after piece measures 3-1/2". Does that include the cuff?

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 10:12:

Dear Dee, yes cuff is included in this measurement, measure from cast on row. Happy knitting!

Erica Bertilsson 13.08.2017 - 09:54:

Hej, Jag vill sticka 141-9 men i mohair, ev dubbla garn mohair+alpacka, är det möjligt? Är det ngt jag bör tänka på? Med vänlig hälsning,/ Erica

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 15:57:

Hei Erica. garngruppe, men som er mye lettere, vil jakke veie kun ca 150 gram. Den vil da ikke falle/sitte så pent på. Om du velger og strikke med 1 tråd Alpaca og 1 tråd Kid-Silk, vil jakke veie ca 300 gram. Det er også viktig å overholde strikkefastheten som er oppgitt i oppskriften når man bytter kvalitet. Strikk en prøvelapp, da får du sjekket din strikkefasthet og se hvordan du syns Alpaca og Kid-Silk er sammen. God Fornøyelse!

Jeannet Hazelbag 04.08.2016 - 17:42:

Ik heb het ook gebreid, maar helaas erg kort, ik heb het verlengd, dat was beter, in maat XL, maar de schouders zijn zo smal geworden, ondanks dat de steekverhoudingen wel bleven kloppen, dat de kraag de functie van de schouders overneemt, de kraag ligt helemaal plat op de schouders :( jammer, het zag er zo leuk en eenvoudig uit.

DROPS Design 05.08.2016 kl. 10:26:

Bedankt voor het melden en jammer dat het resultaat niet helemaal naar wens is. Iedere lichaamsvorm is anders en we kunnen op afstand helaas niet beoordelen hoe het komt dat de pasvorm niet naar wens is. Als u een Drops verkooppunt in de buurt heeft, kunt u het vest altijd even meenemen en er samen met iemand naar kijken.

Chris 01.05.2016 - 14:48:

Ich habe xl gestrickt, jedoch sind die Ärmel für mich ca. 8 cm zu lang und zu breit. Kann ich einfach kürzen überführt mit der Rundpasse beginnen?

Ursula Reynolds 15.04.2016 - 15:44:

I love this jacket but it it is a bit too short for my liking (and need). Can I make it longer without changing the "look"? I would start with the total number of stitches and keep the sides straight (no increases). Thanks!

DROPS Design 15.04.2016 kl. 18:03:

Dear Mrs Reynolds, you can make it longer but the look will be automatically different with a longer body (under armhole) and no shape on the sides. Your DROPS store may help you with any individual assistance if required. Happy knitting!

Ann K. Vassdal 16.02.2016 - 11:00:

Hei! Nydelig jakke! Jeg er usikker på hva str. S - XXXL tilsvarer i nr. størrelser?

DROPS Design 16.02.2016 kl. 14:00:

Hej. Längst ner på oppskriften hittar du en mått-skiss, det bästa är att se på den och välja den storleken som ligger närmast dina mått. Lycka till!
