BODY:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 114-122-130-142-158-174 sts (includes 3 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with Alpaca Bouclé. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work in stockinette st with 3 sts in garter st (= band sts) in each side of piece. Work bands in garter st until finished measurements. Remember BUTTONHOLES - see explanation above. When piece measures 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm / 5½''-6''-6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½'' (adjust so that next row is from RS), insert two markers in the piece AT THE SAME TIME work from RS as follows: Work 3 sts in garter st (= band), 18-20-22-25-29-33 sts in stockinette st, A.2a (= 8 sts), 1 st in stockinette st (= right front piece), insert 1 marker, 1 st in stockinette st, A.1a (= 8 sts), 36-40-44-50-58-66 sts in stockinette st, A.2a (= 8 sts), 1 st in stockinette st (= back piece), insert 1 marker, 1 st in stockinette st, A.1a (= 8 sts), 18-20-22-25-29-33 sts in stockinette st, finish with 3 sts in garter st (= band). NOTE: Diagrams A.1a/A.2a are displaced 1 st towards mid front and mid back on every row from RS. Continue pattern like this. When A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time vertically, work A.1b instead of A.1a and A.2b instead of A.2a. Diagrams A.1b and A.2b are repeated until finished measurements, AT THE SAME TIME continue eyelet rows already begun. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES! When piece measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm / 8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾''-10¼'' (adjust so that next row is from RS), work each part separately. Now divide the piece between each marker.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 30-32-34-37-41-45 sts. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES! Cast on 3 sts for sleeve at the end of next row from RS = 33-35-37-40-44-48 sts on needle. Work the 3 new sts in garter st until finished measurements. Continue to work garter st, stockinette st and A.2 as before AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 23-25-26-28-29-31 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/8"-12 1/4" (adjust so that next row is from RS), work 3 ridges over the first 12 sts, stockinette st and A.2 as before. On next row from RS bind off for neck as follows: bind off the first 9 sts, continue in garter st over the next 3 sts (= band sts), stockinette st and A.2 as before = 24-26-28-31-35-39 sts remain on needle. Then on next row from RS, dec 1 st after the 3 sts in garter st - SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec on every row from RS 4-4-4-5-5-5 more times = 19-21-23-25-29-33 sts remain on needle. Work as before until piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19''. Bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right but reversed. Work A.1 instead of A.2. Bind off for neck from WS.

BACK PIECE:
= 54-58-62-68-76-84 sts. Work A.1/A.2 and in stockinette st as before AT THE SAME TIME cast on 3 sts in each side of piece at the end of the next 2 rows = 60-64-68-74-82-90 sts on needle. When piece measures 27-29-30-32-33-35 cm / 10 5/8"-11 3/8"-11 3/4"-12½"-13"-13 3/4" (adjust so that next row is from RS), work 3 ridges over the middle 24-24-24-26-26-26 sts (= 18-20-22-24-28-32 sts in each side in stockinette st and A.1/A.2 as before). On next row from RS bind off the middle 18-18-18-20-20-20 sts for neck (= 21-23-25-27-31-35 sts remain on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue in garter st over the 3 sts towards the neck, stockinette st and A.1/A.2 as before AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS dec 1 st after/before the 3 sts in garter st in the neck – see DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec 1 more time (= 2 times in total) = 19-21-23-25-29-33 sts remain on needle. Work as before until piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19''. Bind off.

Ho realizzato questo modello col filato sostitutivo Paris ma è venuto troppo "lasso" con i ferri n. 8;cosa succede se lavoro col ferro n. 5 che è adatto a paris?Oppure:quali ferri più piccoli dell'8 potrei usare per rispettare la proporzione?

DROPS Design 18.08.2014 kl. 10:23:

Buongiorno Caterina, prima di lavorare il modello con il Paris ha fatto il campione? Deve utilizzare il n° di ferri che le permette di ottenere un campione di 12 m x 17 ferri a m rasata = 10 x 10 cm. Buon lavoro!!

Kim Chapman 05.08.2014 - 14:53:

Thank you so much. Yes I see now-I'll get started now. Ps. Brilliant site, fab patterns and quick reply to queries-what could be better?

Kim Chapman 02.08.2014 - 17:22:

Just read the instructions for this pattern AFTER buying the wool (silly me!!!) I can't see the instructions for the neckband. Help please!!!

DROPS Design 04.08.2014 kl. 09:21:

Dear Mrs Chapman, neckband is worked at the same time as front piece (first work 3 ridges over the first 12 sts ,then cast off the first 9 sts and continue with 3 sts garter st towards neckline until the end). Happy knitting!

Ellen 11.07.2014 - 13:40:

Nar jeg strikker A1 og A2, skal det da pa vrangsiden av arbeidet legges opp en maske der hvor jeg har tatt 2 sammen pa rettsiden? Skal det lages kast pa pinnen? Dette er ikke tydelig i oppskrifen.

DROPS Design 21.07.2014 kl. 17:07:

Hej Ellen. Du har jo lavet et dobbelt kast (slå om) ved hver 2 sammen iflg diagrammerne. Så når du strikker vrangen, slipper du det ene kast og strikker det andet vrang (+ 1m).

Janneke 29.06.2014 - 15:05:

Het is een vestje, dus ik brei een linker en rechter voorpand, en een achterpand. Waarom moet ik dan ook een 'lijf'breien??Wat wordt daarmee bedoeld? Ik brei 3 panden van onder naar boven, en niet alles als één lap, toch? (achterboord beginnen, voorpand eindigen??)

DROPS Design 01.07.2014 kl. 14:36:

Hoi Janneke. Je breit de panden in één keer tot aan de armsgaten (= lijf). Je breit van middenvoor naar middenvoor, dus over linker voorpand, achterpand en voorpand. Op deze manier heb je geen zijnaden.

Michele 23.03.2014 - 17:13:

Is the lace supposed to meet up with the neck band on larger sizes? I am knitting the xxxl and it is not! What am I doing wrong?!

Es gefällt mir sehr schön
