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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 (= 9 sts). The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

MEASURING TIP:
All length measurements are done along the shorter side.

INCREASE TIP:
All inc are done from RS. Inc inside first st in garter st towards the side and work the inc sts in garter st. Inc by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.

PICK UP TIP:
Right edge piece:
* Pick up 1 st in outer loop of next st/row on back piece at the end of row from RS with left needle, slip the new st on to right needle and pass the st last worked over the new st, work 1 ridge *, repeat from *-* on every row from RS (i.e. edge piece is now worked tog with back piece).
NOTE: To make the pattern fit on back piece there is 1 more ridge on right edge piece than on left edge piece.
Left edge piece:
Pick up as on right but beg at beg of every row from RS.
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
The vest is worked in 3 parts: 1 back piece (A) + 2 edge pieces (B) are worked from mid back of back and end mid back of neck. These are worked tog with back piece and then sewn tog into a ring - see fig.1.

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 29-33-39-47 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. Insert 1 marker after 15-17-20-24 sts. Fasten right and left edge piece tog with back piece on each side of marker. Work in GARTER ST – see explanation above AT THE SAME TIME cast on 2 sts in each side of piece at the end of the next two rows, repeat inc in each side 2 more times, then cast on 1 st in each side of piece at the end of the next two rows, repeat inc 9 more times = 61-65-71-79 sts on needle. Then work as follows on next row from RS: 5-7-3-7 sts in garter st, A.1 (= 9 sts), * 5 sts in stockinette st, A.1 *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-4 times in total, finish with 5-7-3-7 sts in garter st. Continue pattern vertically. When piece measures 14-13-13-12 cm/5½"-5"-5"-4 3/4" and 15-14-14-13 cm / 6"-5½"-5½"-5", inc 1 st in each side = 65-69-75-83 sts on needle (= on 1st or 4th row in A.1) – work the inc sts in garter st. When piece measures 16-15-15-14 cm / 6 1/4"-6"-6"-5½", inc 1 st for sleeve in each side – READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every 2 rows a total of 6 times. When all inc are done, there are 77-81-87-95 sts on needle (= on 1st or 4th row in A.1). When piece measures 30-30-31-31 cm / 11 3/4"-11 3/4"-12 1/4"-12 1/" - adjust after 1 repetition of A.1 vertically - bind off the middle 21-23-25-27 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off 1 st on next row towards the neck = 27-28-30-33 sts remain on each shoulder. Continue with pattern over the remaining sts. Bind off when piece measures 32-32-33-33 cm / 12½"-12½"-13"-13", adjust after 1 repetition vertically.

RIGHT EDGE PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 52-56-60-64 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. Cast-on edge is marked with E on chart. Work in garter st AT THE SAME TIME work edge piece tog with back piece from marker – SEE PICK UP TIP - AT THE SAME TIME work short rows, beg from RS as follows: * Work 2 rows over all sts, then work 2 rows over the first 34-36-40-42 sts, then 2 rows over the first 17-18-20-21 sts *, repeat from *-* until piece measures 18-19-21-23 cm / 7"-7½"-8 1/4"-9" at the shortest – READ MEASURING TIP.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! Continue the pick up AT THE SAME TIME work as follows on next row from RS: 7 sts in garter st (= band), A.1 4-5-5-6 times in total, finish with 9-4-8-3 sts in garter st AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 19-20-22-24 cm / 7½"-8"-8 3/4"-9½", work as follows from RS: * 2 rows over the first 25-34-34-43 sts (7 sts in garter st, A.1 2-3-3-4 times in total), 2 rows over the first 34-43-43-52 sts (7 sts in garter st, A.1 3-4-4-5 times in total), 2 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-* until piece measures 36-37-39-41 cm / 14 1/4"-14½"-15 1/4"-16" - Remember MEASURING TIP.
The short rows are done. Pick up is finished when sts have been picked up until 1st inc st for sleeve on back piece. Continue with pattern.

When pick up is done, inc for sleeve in the side as on back piece (= 6 sts inc) = 58-62-66-70 sts on needle (= on 1st or 4th row in A.1). Then work pattern and in garter st over all sts. When piece measures 54-56-59-62 cm / 21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4"-24½", bind off the outermost 27-28-30-33 sts in the left side for shoulder - adjust after 1 repetition of A.1 vertically = 31-34-36-37 sts remain for shawl collar. Work the rest of row. Now measure piece from here. Now continue piece in garter st. Work as follows from RS: * 2 rows over the first 23-26-28-29 sts, 2 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements. Bind off when piece measures 7-8-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3"-3"-3½" (measured on the shortest side).

LEFT EDGE PIECE:
Cast on and work as right but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
- See chart. Sew in outer loops of edge sts, and make sure to avoid a tight edge. Sew the edge pieces tog in bottom edge (E to E) and in neck (D to D). Fasten edge piece to back piece by sewing shoulder seams (C) and edge piece up to back piece (G) in the back of neck.

På sid 3 i mönstret står det " upprepa tills ar 1:a m som är ökt till armb. Eftersom jag inte förstod detta gick jag in på den engelska översättningen och där stod det kort och gott: repeat until piece measures 36 cm, Ni kanske bör ändra i den svenska varianten?

DROPS Design 10.07.2019 kl. 13:34:

Hej. Tack för info, det har nu korrigerats på den svenska översättningen. Mvh DROPS Design

Carol 20.05.2019 - 18:20:

I am so confused. On the side (right or left) when one row is worked across in pattern with eg 7 sts, A1 - 4 times, 9 sts: then begin two rows, 25 sts ( A1 - 2 times in total) : two rows 34 sts (A1 - 3 times in total). Now two rows over all. The result over these last two rows do not line up with the A1 pattern. The stitches over the 3rd A1 are 2 rows behind pattern repeat. What is the secret to complete.

DROPS Design 21.05.2019 kl. 09:44:

Dear Carol, you work A.1 on all this row, let's say on row 1 of the short rows you work row 1 in the first 2-3-3-4 A.1, you will work row 2 of A.1 over these 2-3-3-4 repeats on next row, then work row 3 in A.1 over the 2-3-3-4 first A.1, then row 1 over the next repeat (= 3-4-4-6 repeats on this row), turn and work row 2 over 1 repeat, row 4 over the next 2-3-3-4 repeats, on next row over all sts, work row 5 over the first 2-3-3-4 repeats, row 3 over next repeat and row 1 over the remaining repeat. ie you have to continue each repeat following the previous row worked on this repeat, not same row for all repeats so that the pattern will be the same on all repeats. Happy knitting!

Carol 09.05.2019 - 18:37:

I am starting the left side piece and am about to k7 sts (band) then continues with A1(4-5-5-6) times, finish with 9-4-8-3 sts. My question is, are there no sts worked between each A1?

DROPS Design 10.05.2019 kl. 09:08:

Dear Carol, left front piece will be worked reversed/mirored to the right front piece, ie short rows will start from WS, then when working A.1 you will work from RS: 9-4-8-3 sts in garter st, repeat A.1 a total of 4-5-5-6 times and finish with 7 sts in garter st for front band. Then short rows will also be worked the same way but starting from WS (instead of from RS). Happy knitting!

Elsy 06.03.2019 - 17:19:

Förklara: Bakstycket "Sticka RÄTST... SAMTIDIGT som det läggs upp 2 m i varje sida av arb i slutet på de två nästa varven, upprepa ökningen i varje sida 2 ggr till." Hur många varv ska jag ha stickat? Hur många maskor ska nu finnas på stickan?

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 14:09:

Hei Elsy. Du skal øke 2 masker på slutten av de 2 neste pinnene (2 masker økt i hver side = totalt 4 masker økt). Dette skal du gjenta 2 ganger til, altså toatlt 3 ganger. Det vil si: Du skal ha strikket totalt 6 pinner, med økning i slutten av hver pinne = 12 masker økt. Videre skal du øke 1 maske på slutten av hver pinne i hver side (= 2 pinner strikket), dette skal du gjenta 9 ganger til. God fornøyelse

Tina Tolias 16.04.2018 - 11:07:

Totally confused with the measurements, can you please tell me what size I need to knit for someone with a total measurement around the bust of 109cm. Thank you

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 13:19:

Dear Mrs Tolias, you will find all measurements for each size in the measurement chart. Compare these measurements to a similar garment the lady has and likes the shape (eg A = back piece, find bottom measurement of back piece at the bottom of chart and top measurements (shoulders) at the top). Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Vibeke Nyrop 19.01.2018 - 14:04:

Modellen er strikke i en størrelse M - og bagstykket ser fint ud, men forsiden er blevet for stor. Stykket med mønster hænger og er meget løst, både i længden og i bredden. Vi mener at have fulgt opskriften fuldt ud, og vil være meget glad for at få hjælp til at få lavet vesten færdig.

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 11:00:

Hej, Du ser målene på forstykket nederst i opskriften. Det lyder til at selve mønsteret kan være strikket lidt for løst, det er muligt du skulle have brugt et pinde nummer mindre. Hvis du er næsten færdig går det så ikke at forkorte det lidt istedet for at trevle op?

Conny Fox 23.05.2017 - 05:59:

How do I knit the A1 pattern for the left edge? If I start on the wrong side for the short rows the A1 pattern faces the wrong side. Thanks

DROPS Design 23.05.2017 kl. 07:09:

Dear Conny, instead of the first row, start the pattern at the second row, so the pattern will face the roght side. Since the pattern is simmetric it does not matter if you read the chart from left to right, or from right to left. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Conny Fox 19.05.2017 - 22:56:

Vest left side: cast on 52, connect to back piece knit 2 rows .knit again 52 (RS), turn and now (WS) knit the first 34, turn (RS) knit 2nd row of 34, turn (WS) knit 17, turn, which brings me to the RS, turn, now I am on WS, knit 52, turn, connect to back, knit the 2nd row of 52. Which is now the RS row. Correct? So instead of starting the first 34,17 and again the 52 st on the RS, this time it is starting on the WS (the wrong side = the first row). Will this work with the pattern? Thank you

DROPS Design 21.05.2017 kl. 10:32:

Hi Conny, As long as you begin with WS instead of RS, you can follow the instructions for Right Edge Piece. So you repeat from *-* until the piece measures 18cm at the shortest point. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Deirdre

Conny Fox 12.05.2017 - 21:37:

I have trouble with the measurements. especially when it comes to the sides. I knitted the pattern with the short rows but i am so confused on how to measure the lenght. I need to stop at 36 cm to do the next step. From where to where do I measure? Especially when the piece curves up. The diagrams doesn't help me. Thank you

DROPS Design 13.05.2017 kl. 01:50:

Dear Connie, first you should measure the piece from the cast on row, then, after you separated the body and the sleeves, you should measure from the point the stitches were separated. I hope this helped. Happy Knitting!

María Noé 06.03.2016 - 19:31:

Hola! Si, eso es lo que hice en el punto musgo (comenzar las vueltas acortadas por el LR). Cuando comienzo con el patrón debo realizar unas vueltas (4 vueltas según mi frente derecho) hasta que la pieza mida 19 cm y luego comenzar con las vueltas cortas, es ahí donde tengo el problema, porque si doy una vuelta (larga) mas para quedar del lado correcto para la vueltas cortas, me cambia el dibujo del patrón, es así?? Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 09.03.2016 kl. 13:35:

Hola María, cuando alcanzamos la medida para comenzar el dibujo, trabajamos la sig fila por el LD (lado derecho) como sigue: 9-4-8-3 pts en pt musgo, A.1 4-5-5-6 vcs en total, 7 pts en pt musgo (= borde). En la sig fila (LR) comenzaríamos las filas acortadas.
