There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagram A.1, diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS. 1 repetition = 4 sts.

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

SHORT ROWS (applies to band):
To avoid the ridges contracting mid front work short rows over band as follows:
* Beg mid front, work 19 sts in garter st, turn piece, tighten yarn and work 19 sts in garter st.* Then work back and forth over all sts as before. Repeat from *-* approx. every 10th row until bind off on shoulder.

Worked back and forth on a circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 50-58-66 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 12 mm / US 17 with Vienna or Melody. Work BLACKBERRY PATTERN – see explanation above, with 1 edge st in each side in GARTER ST - see explanation above. (1st row = WS.) REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! When piece measures 42-44-46 cm / 16½”-17”-18”, cast on 24-24-24 new sts in each side for sleeves (i.e. cast on at the end of the next 2 rows) = 98-106-114 sts.
Continue with blackberry pattern over all sts and 1 edge st in garter st in each side at the edge of sleeve. When piece measures 70-74-78 cm / 27½”-29”-30¾”, loosely bind off the middle 14 sts for neck = 42-46-50 sts remain on each shoulder. Continue blackberry pattern with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. Bind off with K from RS when piece measures approx. 72-76-80 cm / 29”-30”-31½”.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 36-40-44 sts (includes 1 edge st in the side and 19 band sts in garter st towards mid front) on circular needle size 12 mm / US 17 with Vienna.
Work blackberry pattern with 19 band sts in garter st towards mid front and 1 edge st in garter st in the side (1st row = WS) – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 7 cm / 2¾’’, beg to work SHORT ROWS over band - see explanation above. When piece measures 42-44-46 cm / 16½”-17”-18”, cast on 24-24-24 new sts at the end of next row from WS for sleeve = 60-64-68 sts.
Continue to work 1 st in garter st on the outer edge of sleeve, blackberry pattern over 40-44-48 sts and 19 sts in garter st towards mid front.
When piece measures approx. 72-76-80 cm / 29”-30”-31½” (stop after 1 row from WS), bind off the first 42-46-50 sts with K from RS. K the remaining 18 band sts and then slip them on 1 stitch holder for collar.

Work as left but reversed, i.e. when casting on new sts for sleeve this is done at the end of row from RS and when piece measures approx. 72-76-80 cm / 29”-30”-31½” (stop after 1 row from WS) work next row as follows from RS: Work 18 sts in garter st and then slip them on 1 stitch holder for collar, bind off the remaining 42-46-50 sts with K from RS, cut the yarn.

Sew shoulder/overarm seams tog edge to edge.
Sew side and underarm seams in one inside 1 edge st.

Slip the 18 sts from stitch holder on left band on circular needle size 12 mm / US 17. Then work as follows, beg mid front:
* Work 1 ridge in garter st back and forth over all sts, work 1 ridge in garter st back and forth over the outermost 12 sts towards mid front *, repeat from *-* until collar measures approx. 9-10 cm / 3½”-4” (measured at the shortest), loosely bind off.
Work the same way on right band but K 1 row from WS over all sts before repeating from *-*. Sew collar tog mid back and sew collar to neckline at the back of neck edge to edge.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= From WS: P 3, pass first st worked over the 2 others, then the second over the last st = 1 st remains.

Non riesco a capire come si fa il punto costa a legaccio, nn è spiegato bene. Grazie

DROPS Design 19.04.2019 kl. 16:14:

Buongiorno Francesca. Lavorare una costa a legaccio vuol dire lavorare 2 ferri a diritto. Buon lavoro!

Isabelle 22.11.2015 - 16:51:

I am making this with melody. A very lovely yarn! But incredibly hard to knit with especially when using the 12 mm needles! Since the yarn is too thin (while super fluffy) for these thick needles. Stitches keep slipping and knitting is super slow. Result is beautiful though.

Karined 11.10.2015 - 13:21:

Bonjour ce modèle me plait ! je souhaite la faire en mélody Es ce qu'il faut tricoter à deux fils ? ou seulement un fil ? Merci d'avance et merci pour vos modèles toujours aussi beau et gratuit

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Karined et merci. Ce modèle se tricote avec 1 seul fil Vienna ou 1 seul fil Melody, sur la base d'un échantillon de 9 m x 9 rangs au point d'astrakan = 10 x 10 cm. Bon tricot!

Francesca 25.01.2014 - 00:41:

Potreste spiegarmi come faccio ad avviare su entrambi i lati le maglie per le maniche? Ho visto il video e mostra soltanto come farlo per un lato, alla fine del ferro. Come si fa all'inizio del ferro?

DROPS Design 25.01.2014 kl. 17:16:

Buonasera Francesca, le istruzioni dicono "Quando il lavoro misura 42-44-46 cm, avviare 24-24-24 m da ciascun lato per le maniche (avviare quindi le m alla fine dei 2 ferri successivi)", per cui può seguire il video e avviare le m alla fine dei 2 f successivi. Ci riscriva se ha altri dubbi. Buon lavoro!!!

Patrizia 30.12.2013 - 12:01:

Buongiorno, cosa intende per ferri accorciati - non riesco a capire la spiegazioni relativa alle 19 m del davanti puo' essere più chiara? grazie

DROPS Design 30.12.2013 kl. 12:24:

Buongiorno Patrizia, i ferri accorciati sono ferri in cui non si lavora su tutti i punti, ma solo su una parte, in questo caso 19 m, poi si gira il lavoro e si torna indietro. Provi a vedere se questo video può esserle d'aiuto: Ci riscriva se ha ancora dubbi. Buon lavoro!!

Traumhaft, so müssen jacken aussehen.

Giuliana 19.12.2013 - 00:37:

Ciao a tutte! Questo modello è bellissimo..l'ho realizzato con successo e il filato è stupendo!

Deborah 22.09.2013 - 16:58:

Mijn vest is bijna af, maar ik heb een klein probleempje/vraagje voor de kraag. In de beschrijving staat dat je de overgebleven 18 steken van linker en rechter voorpand in ribbelsteek moet breien met verkorte toeren over een lengte van 9-10cm gemeten langs de korte kant. Maar het kraag-gedeelte van mijn achterpand meet zo'n 30cm. Kom ik dan niet zo'n 10cm te kort om de 2 kraag-delen van linker en rechter voorpand aan elkaar te naaien? Of heb ik ergens een fout gemaakt?

DROPS Design 24.09.2013 kl. 13:33:

Hoi Deborah. Kijk of jouw stekenverhouding correct is (9 st x 9 nld = 10 cm). De kraag komt te liggen langs de halsopening van het achterpand = 14 m afgekant = ongeveer 15-16 cm
