The jacket is worked in stripes as follows:

2 rows Lace
Repeat these 4 rows upwards.

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

Worked back and forth on needle in one. Start at the top of front piece and cast on for back piece afterwards.

Cast on 104-108-110-114-118-120 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Alpaca Bouclé. Work in GARTER ST back and forth on needle - see explanation above. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9. Then work in stockinette st and PATTERN with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 18-18-20-20-21-21 cm / 7"-7"-8"-8"-8 1/4"-8 1/4", cast on 5 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 114-118-120-124-128-130 sts. Continue with pattern in stockinette st but work the outermost 6 sts in each side in garter st.
When piece measures 33-34-37-38-40-41 cm / 13"-13½"-14½"-15"-15 3/4"-16", cast on 25-27-29-30-32-33 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 164-172-178-184-192-196 sts. Continue with pattern in stockinette st but work the outermost 30-32-34-35-37-38 sts in each side in garter st. When piece measures 37-38-41-42-44-45 cm / 14½"-15"-16"-16½"-17 1/4"-17 3/4", cast on 28-28-32-32-34-34 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 220-228-242-248-260-264 sts.

= 220-228-242-248-260-264 sts on row. Continue with pattern in stockinette st with 6 sts in garter st in each side. When piece measures 79-82-87-90-94-97 cm / 31"-32 1/4"-34 1/4"-35½"-37"-38 1/4", switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Now finish the piece with 2 strands Alpaca Bouclé.

Bonjour Est ce que "Continuer en point fantaisie et jersey mais tricoter les 6 m de chaque côté au point mousse." signifie point fantaisie (Lace et alpaca ) et les 6 mailles du bord en mousse juste alpaca bouclé ?

DROPS Design 06.04.2019 kl. 11:16:

Bonjour Michelle! Vous travaillez les 6 mailles de chaque cote au point mousse en alternant les 2 qualités comme indiqué. Les mailles au milieu (entre les 6 mailles de chaque cote) sont tricotees en jersey en alternant les 2 qualités comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

Purtroppo ho sbagliato in pieno la taglia facendolo troppo grande. Avevo paura che una xl non bastasse e ho fatto la doppia x. Adesso è troppo largo e mi ingoffa troppo come modello. Come tipologia di modello va bene per chi è di taglia contenuta. Suggerisco, oltre che fornire l'altezza e la tg della modella, di fornire qualche dettaglio sul rapporto tg della modella e tg del maglione mostrato in foto. In questo modo forse si riesce a capire la vestibilità e le proporzioni di vestibilità.

Are the edge stitches knitted with alpaca boucle or do they change every 2 rows to lace too?

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 11:57:

Hi Ritta. You work PATTERN across the edge sts too. Happy knitting

"Quando il lavoro misura 18-18-20-20-21-21 cm, avviare 5 nuove m alla fine dei 2 ferri successivi . -5 maglie alla fine del 1° e 5 alla fine del 2°? - con metodo a occhiello o cavo?voi come lo avete fatto? - meglio farlo su righe con boucle o lace? Grazie !

DROPS Design 24.11.2018 kl. 16:40:

Buongiorno Aissela. Deve aumentare 5 maglie alla fine del primo ferro e 5 alla fine del secondo. Può seguire il metodo spiegato nel video che alleghiamo. È indifferente con quale filato avvia le maglie. Buon lavoro!

Hadar 08.11.2018 - 16:03:

Just so i get this right, i knit the garter edge in the start with one thread of alpaca boucle and then every two rows i have to change the threads from lace to alpaca boucle, and at the end i do a garter stitch with 2 threads of alpaca boucle? do i cut the yarn eack time i'm switching to the other or do i continue with the thread i left 2 rows before?

DROPS Design 09.11.2018 kl. 08:27:

Dear Hadar, since you only work 2 rows each yarn you don't need to cut the yarn - just let it follow upwards - see video about stripes here. Happy knitting!

Point de fantaisie est tout en l'endroit où mousse Merci

Bonjour Mme Du Sablon, on tricote en jersey en alternant les 2 qualités comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

Jag har precis stickat klart den här modellen. Av sammanlagt 10 garnnystan jag köpt (enligt mönstret) har jag hälften, dvs 5 st kvar. Kanske behöver ni ändra i garnåtgången? Eftersom jag köpt mitt garn från garnaffären.se antar jag att det inte heller går att få pengarna tillbaka för allt det garn som blir över. Kan ni hjälpa mig med det?

DROPS Design 29.04.2016 kl. 10:27:

Hej. Om du har riktig stickfasthet så ska garnåtgången vara riktig på detta mönster. Ang. retur av garn så får du höra med återförsäljaren om de kan hjälpa dig. Mvh DROPS Design

Hallo :) Ich wollte mal fragen, ob es irgendwo eine Größentabelle gibt, die die ganzen Maße der einzelnen Kleidergrößen beinhaltet? Danke und beste Grüße!

DROPS Design 06.02.2016 kl. 09:28:

Ja, die Maßsizze finden Sie ganz am Ende der Anleitung! Die Zahlen stehen in der Reihenfolge der einzelnen Größen.

è possibile sostituire il filato DROPS ALPACA BOUCLÉ con un il filato NEPAL o AIR (o un altro filato non bouclè)? se si, utilizzo la stessa quantità di filato? grazie in anticipo, i vostri prodotti sono stupendi.

DROPS Design 11.12.2015 kl. 21:13:

Buonasera Giorgia, DROPS Alpaca Bouclè è un filato del gruppo C come Nepal o Air, quindi può usarli in alternativa a patto che il suo campione corrisponda a quello indicato. Utilizzando però un filato diverso l'aspetto del lavoro finito sarà diverso da quello in foto. Provi a vedere qui come calcolare la quantità di filato necessaria. Buon lavoro!

Hallo, hätte mal eine Frage zu den Randmaschen. In der Anleitung steht das man ab 4 cm glatt rechts strickt mit jeweils einer Randm. Hinr wird ja rechts und Rückr links gestrickt. Wird also die 1. und letzte M in der Hinr auch rechts und die 1. und letzte M in der Rückr links gestrickt? Ist das richtig? Oder werden die Randm. anders gestrickt wie zum Beispiel beim Knötchenrand alle Randm ob Hin- oder Rückreihe nur rechts? Über eine kurzfristige Antwort wäre ich sehr dankbar.

DROPS Design 15.03.2015 kl. 22:48:

Bei uns werden die Rand-M in der Regel kraus rechts gestrickt (Hin- und Rück-R rechts), so auch bei diesem Modell. Das wird in der Anleitung gleich ergänzt. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!
