GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

ENGLISH RIB ST:
When counting the sts, the YOs are not counted as sts.

KNITTING TIP 1:
To make an English rib in two colors work back and forth on a circular needle as follows: Work 1st row as explained below, turn piece and then beg color change as follows: Work 2nd row as explained below with color 1 and then move all sts on circular needle to the other end so that next row can be worked with color 2 from the same side of piece - then turn piece and work the next 2 rows as the first 2 – i.e. work 1 row with each color and work 2 rows in total from the same side before turning piece and working back.

KNITTING TIP 2:
If you are in doubt, see what color the previous row was worked with on the color of edge st.

ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS:
ROW 1 (= WS): Worked with color 01, off white
* 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P, K 1 *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remain, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P. Turn piece.

ROW 2 (= RS): Worked with color 01, off white
* K tog YO and slipped st, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K tog YO and slipped st.
Move sts back on circular needle to work from same side one more time and switch color (read KNITTING TIP 1 and 2).

ROW 3 (= RS): Work with color 14, light grayish green
* 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P, P tog YO and slipped st *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remain, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P. Turn piece.

ROW 4 (= WS): Worked with color 01, off white
* P tog YO and slipped st, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, P tog YO and slipped st.
Move sts back on circular needle to work from same side one more time and switch color.

ROW 5 (= WS): Work with color 14, light grayish green
* 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P, K tog YO and slipped st *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remain, finish with 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to P. Turn piece.

Repeat rows 2-5.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sleeve):
Inc 1 st at beg of row after 1 edge st and 1 st before 1 edge st at end of row.
Inc 1 st by making a YO, on next row work YO twisted i.e. work in back loop of st instead front. NOTE: Work the inc sts in English rib.

DECREASE TIP 1:
Dec from RS in English rib as follows:
Dec as follows before marker: Work in English rib until 3 sts remain before st with marker (Read ENGLISH RIB ST above), slip 1 st as if to K, K the next 2 sts tog and then pass 1 slipped st over. 2 sts dec.
Dec as follows after marker: Work in English rib until marker, K 3 tog. 2 sts dec.

DECREASE TIP 2:
Dec 2 sts as follows: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
First worked back and forth in parts before slipping them on same needle and then work back and forth until finished measurements.

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle - see KNITTING TIP 1.
Loosely cast on 96-99-102-105-108-111 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with off white. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above -, * K 1, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with K 1 and 1 edge st in garter st = 65-67-69-71-73-75 sts. Work ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS – see explanation above – with 1 edge st in garter st in each side of piece until piece measures 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm / 13''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15'' (adjust so that next row is 2nd-2nd-2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd row in English rib). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Now dec 1 edge st in each side on next row as follows: Dec 1 edge st at beg of next row by working the first 2 sts K twisted tog, work as before until 2 sts remain, K the last 2 tog = 63-65-67-69-71-73 sts. Work 1 more row (= 3rd-3rd-3rd-4th-4th-3rd row in English rib). Put the piece aside and work both front pieces.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Loosely cast on 93-96-99-102-105-108 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with off white. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with K 1 and 1 edge st in garter st (work edge st in garter st until finished measurements) = 63-65-67-69-71-73 sts. Work ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS with 1 edge st in garter st in each side of piece until piece measures 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm / 13''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15'' (adjust so that next row is 2nd-2nd-2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd row in English rib). On next row dec edge st in garter st in right side of piece by working the last 2 sts K tog = 62-64-66-68-70-72 sts remain on row. Work 1 more row (= 3rd-3rd-3rd-4th-4th-3rd row in English rib). Put piece aside.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed, i.e. when 1 edge st is dec, work the first 2 sts twisted tog.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 32-32-34-34-35-35 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with off white. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, 2 sts in next st *, repeat from *-* until 1-1-3-3-2-2 sts remain, finish with K 0-0-2-2-1-1 and 1 edge st in garter st = 47-47-49-49-51-51 sts. Then work in ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS with 1 edge st in garter st in each side of piece. When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc 1 st in each side inside 1 edge st - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc in each side of piece every 5-4-4-3-2½-2½ cm / 2"-1½"-1½"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8" 4-6-6-8-8-10 more times (= 5-7-7-9-9-11 times in total) = 57-61-63-67-69-73 sts. Work English rib with 1 edge st in garter st in each side of piece until piece measures 35-35-34-34-33-33 cm / 13 3/4"-13 3/4"-13 3/8"-13 3/8"-13"-13" (adjust so that next row is 2nd-2nd-2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd row in English rib). Dec 1 edge st in each side of piece as follows: Work the first 2 sts K twisted tog, work as before until 2 sts remain, K 2 tog = 55-59-61-65-67-71 sts. Then work 1 more row (= 3rd-3rd-3rd-4th-4th-3rd row in English rib) AT THE SAME TIME insert 1 marker in each side of piece inside 5 sts. Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves between front and back piece in each side on same circular needle with off white outwards (= RS) = 297-311-321-335-345-359 sts on row. Now insert 1 marker in the transitions between back piece and sleeves in each side (= 6 markers in total incl markers on sleeves). Next row = 4th-4th-4th-5th-5th-4th row in English rib (= WS).
Work 2-3-3-1-1-3 rows in English rib before dec for raglan on sleeves and back piece (NOTE: Do not dec on front piece) on next row (= 2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-3rd row in English rib). Work as follows from RS: Work 1 edge st in garter st, 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts in English rib as before (YOs are not counted as sts – READ ENGLISH RIB ST), work the first 5 sts in English rib from sleeve as before, dec 2 sts after marker – see DECREASE TIP 1 above, continue with English rib until 3 sts remain before next marker on sleeve, dec 2 sts before marker – see DECREASE TIP 1 above, work the last 5 sts from sleeve as before, marker, then dec 2 sts on back piece after marker, work until 3 sts remain before marker in other side of back piece, dec 2 sts before marker, work the first 5 sts on sleeve as before, dec 2 sts after marker, continue in English rib until 3 sts remain before next marker on sleeve, dec 2 sts before marker, work the last 5 sts from sleeve as before, then work the last 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts in English rib and 1 edge st in garter st as before = 12 sts dec.
Then dec differently on sleeves and back piece.
Sleeve: Repeat dec every 4th row 10-10-11-12-13-13 more times (i.e. dec every 2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-3rd row in English rib) = 11-15-13-13-11-15 sts remain on each sleeve.
Back piece: Repeat dec on back piece every 8th row 0-0-0-1-2-2 times, then every 4th row 10-10-11-10-9-9 times (i.e. dec every 2nd-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-3rd row in English rib) = 19-21-19-21-23-25 sts remain on back piece.
= 165-179-177-183-185-199 sts on needle.
Then on next row (= RS in S-XL-XXL, WS in M-L-XXXL) work as follows: Work 1 edge st in garter st, English rib as before over the next 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts (= front piece), then work rib in two colors (i.e. work K over K sts in English rib in the same color as English rib sts and P over P sts in English rib in same color as English rib) over the next 41-51-45-47-45-55 sts (i.e. sleeves and back piece). NOTE: I.e. YO and slipped st K tog, and work P sts P, AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-14-4-6-2-12 sts evenly i.e. dec 2 sts 2-7-2-3-1-6 times – see DECREASE TIP 2, work English rib as before over the last 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts and 1 edge st in garter st (= front piece) = 161-165-173-177-183-187 sts. Work 1 edge st in garter st, English rib as before over the next 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts (= front piece), then work K over K and P over P over the next 37-37-41-41-43-43 sts, English rib as before over the last 61-63-65-67-69-71 sts and 1 edge st in garter st (= front piece).

Hallo, heel graag zou ik willen hoe ik 1 steek moet meerderen en minderen. bij tips v h minderen mouw begrijp ik de instr niet! verder staan er alleen tips vh minderen van 2 st maar er wordt in de beschr ook 1 st minderen gevraagd. kunt u mij aub helpen? heb diverse tutorials bekeken maar helaas.

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 10:42:

Dag Carla,

Bij 'TIPS VOOR HET MEERDEREN (voor de mouw)' staat aangegeven hoe je 1 steek meerdert aan elke kant (voor en na de kantsteek). Op een gegeven moment moet je inderdaad ook minderen bij de mouw, maar hoe je dit doet staat bij de beschrijving van de mous: namelijk 2 steken gedraaid samenbreien.

Christin 10.12.2018 - 10:47:

Hi there! I have been reading through your pattern but I am not sure if I understand it correctly. The back piece requires 99sts (for size M) to be cast on, then I knit in decrease (as it asks to K1, K2tog) until I have 67sts left on my needles, and after that I continue in English Rib. Do I understand the pattern correctly? Thank you and Merry Christmas!

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 11:12:

Dear Christin, you are right, you cast on more stitches than you need for the English rib, to avoid casting on row being too tight. Merry Christmas and happy knitting!

Gudrun 01.09.2018 - 08:25:

Die Frage wurde in 2014 zwar schon mal gestellt, die Antwort hat mir nicht weitergeholfen. Wie stricke ich das Muster mit nur einer Farbe? Danke vorab!

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 11:28:

Liebe Gudrun, hier werden dieses Muster mit nur 1 Farbe erklärt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Trisha 27.02.2018 - 08:03:

HELP! Just can’t master the English rib -the correct yarn has been purchased, love the look of the finished garment but in despair. Can you recommend an alternative stitch that is within my capabilities. I’ve tried Brioche but cannot grasp this either even though I am a confident knitter and have tried many times using the videos on line. I am almost at the point of giving up!

DROPS Design 27.02.2018 kl. 09:04:

Dear Trisha, English Rib and Brioche is basically the same thing. Do not dispair, please try to see and follow the tutorial videos on our site heret. And do not forget that you can always ask for personal help in teh store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Knitting!

Anette Frandsen 10.12.2017 - 19:30:

Jeg er i gang med at strikke ærmerne på denne model. MEN i opskriften skal jeg efter 8 cm tage en maske ud i hver side for hver 2,5 cm ialt 11 gange. Derefter strikke til 33 cm hvor der lukkes en maske i hver ende. Hvordan det? Når jeg har taget ud er ærmet 35,5 cm!?!?

DROPS Design 12.12.2017 kl. 11:57:

Hej Anette, hvis du tager første maske ud når du har 8 cm, så er du færdig når du har 33 cm. Nu lukker du kantmasken af ifølge opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Lia 27.12.2016 - 10:26:

Buongiorno premesso che sono una principiante,abbiamo scelto questo modello,ma già dall'inizio ho cancellato molte volte,non mi trovo con leggere ed eseguire.ho da fare delle domande:posso farlo con ferri diritti?non so usare quelli circolari.quando c e'scritto assicurarsi che il ferro sia2-2-2-3-3 cosa significa?posso usare le stesse coste inglesi x lana di un solo colore?in ultimo c e' verificare che sia la costa 2-2-3-3-2una cosa simile credo.grazie

DROPS Design 27.12.2016 kl. 12:13:

Buongiorno Lia, questo modello è un cardigan, per cui può essere lavorato anche con i ferri dritti seguendo le stesse istruzioni. Per quanto riguarda l'altra domanda, ad esempio per la taglia S, quando arriva a 33 cm, il ferro successivo deve corrispondere al ferro 2 delle coste inglesi (seguendo la spiegazione delle coste inglesi in alto), quindi può procedere con le diminuzioni. Può anche lavorare con un colore solo se preferisce, l'effetto però sarà diverso dalla foto. Buon lavoro!

Nicole 05.05.2016 - 11:29:

Bei der Alpaca Silk brushed wird angegeben sie wäre mit Nadeln 5 zu stricken und die Maschenprobe wären 17M x 24R. Diese Angaben passen jetzt auch. Was leider nicht klappt ist mit Nadeln 6 auf 11M x 26R zu kommen im Patentmuster. Was jedoch geht ist nicht zweifarbig, sondern zweifädig und mit Nadeln 8 zu stricken. Dann passen die Angaben. Jetzt habe ich aber das nächste Problem. Für das Rückenteil soll ich bei Größe M 99 Maschen anschlagen, das ergibt 90 cm. Ich fürchte hier stimmt etwas nicht.

DROPS Design 07.05.2016 kl. 07:53:

Liebe Nicole, es ist wichtig, dass die Maschenprobe im Patentmuster stimmt. Nehmen Sie die Nadel, die bei Ihrer Strickart dafür nötig ist. Und bei der Maschenzahl beim Anschlag müssen Sie die Anleitung weiter lesen: schon in der zweiten Reihe wird die Maschenzahl stark reduziert (man macht dies, damit die Anschlagskante nicht zu fest wird).

Tullia 20.02.2016 - 13:23:

Encore merci pour votre réponse rapide et vos conseils, c'est tellement agréable de les recevoir lorsque l'on est impatiente de commencer le travail !

Tullia 20.02.2016 - 11:56:

Bonjour, c'est encore Tullia ! Bien reçu jolies laines pour modèle 152-12 mais hélas, mon échantillon (11mx26rgs avec Aig.6 ne mesure que 8x8cm. Pourtant il est très ajouré et travaillé très souplement. Mon magasin Drops me dit d'utiliser des aiguilles plus grosses... mais la laine est si fine, je crains un mauvais résultat. Comment faire ? Merci de vos conseils.

DROPS Design 20.02.2016 kl. 12:47:

Bonjour Tullia, vous pouvez également laver (bloquer) votre échantillon et vérifier les mesures après séchage - mais s'il est toujours trop petit, il vous faudra recommencer avec des aiguilles plus grosses. Bon tricot!

Tullia 10.02.2016 - 13:25:

Merci, merci ! Votre réponse rapide et claire vient de me permettre de terminer le "brouillon modèle réduit" de l'empiècement. Je vais commander les laines et me lancer dans "l'œuvre" avec plus de sérénité. A bientôt peut-être, pour d'autres modèles... Bien cordialement. tullia.
