Gauge: 21 sts x 28 rows on larger needles in Angora-Tweed or Cotton Merino in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm

Rib-1: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from * - *.

Rib-2: * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from * - *.

Button band: After the rib put 7 button band sts at each side on a smaller double-pointed needle, then knit these at the same time with Body but in Rib-1, keeping the outer edge st in garter st. Knit the button bands with light blue over all sts.
Note: To avoid gaps between button band and body twist the last st of button band with the first st of body.

Buttonhole: Make buttonholes on right button band (1 buttonhole = bind off the 5th st from center front and yo over the bound off st on the next row). Make buttonholes when the piece measures:

.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Body: Cast on 191-213-235-257 sts on smaller circular needles with light blue / lavender. Knit Rib-1 for 6 cm , keeping 1 st at each edge in garter st (make buttonholes on right button band - see instructions above). Change to larger circular needles and stockinette st, but knit the 7 button band sts per instructions above - and make buttonholes along right button band per instructions above.
When the piece measures 25-27-29-31 cm knit Pattern 1 - start at appropriate arrow on the chart (continue to knit the button band in rib). After Pattern 1 knit the rest with light blue in stockinette st. At the same time when the piece measures 31-32-33-34 cm knit the next row as follows: 49-54-59-64 sts for the right front, bind off 5-7-7-9 sts for armhole, knit 83-91-103-111 sts for the back, bind off 5-7-7-9 sts for armhole, knit 49-54-59-64 sts for the left front. Knit each piece separately.

Left front: = 49-54-59-64 sts. Bind off for armhole at the side every other row: 3 sts 0-0-1-1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-3 times and 1 st 3-4-4-5 times = 46-48-48-50 sts. When the piece measures 46-48-50-52 cm put 13-14-13-14 sts at the center front edge on a st holder for the neck. Then bind off at neck edge every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 4 times = 22-23-24-25 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off the remaining sts when the piece measures 52-54-56-58 cm.

Right front: = 49-54-59-64 sts. Knit the same as left front, reversing all shaping. Make buttonholes along button bands.

Back: = 83-91-103-111 sts. Bind off for armhole at both sides as on front = 77-79-81-83 sts remain on needles. When the piece measures 50-52-54-56 cm bind off the center 29 sts for the neck. Bind off 2 sts at each neck edge on the next row = 22-23-24-25 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off the remaining sts when the piece measures 52-54-56-58 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 66-72-72-78 sts on smaller double-pointed needles with light blue / lavender; join and place a marker at the join. Knit Rib-2 until the piece measures 3 cm then dec every other P 2 to P 1 = 55-60-60-65 sts. When the piece measures 6 cm dec the remaining P 2 to P 1 = 44-48-48-52 sts (you are now knitting Rib-2).

Read the entire next section before knitting:
Continue in Rib-1. When the piece measures 9 cm change to larger double-pointed needles and stockinette st. After the rib inc 1 st each side of marker every 6-6-5-5 rows 18-18-20-20 times = 80-84-88-92 sts. When the piece measures 45-45-44-43 cm begin Pattern 1 (center the pattern across the sleeve).
When the piece measures 51-49-48-46 cm bind off 3 sts each side of marker, and knit back and forth on the needles. Bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 4-4-4-3 times, 1 st 1-3-4-9 times, then 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 57-57-58-58 cm and then 3 sts each side 1 time. The piece measures approx. 58-58-59-59 cm. Bind off the remaining sts.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.
Collar: Pick up approx. 105 to 115 sts (divisible by 2 + 1) around the neck (incl. sts on st holder) on smaller circular needles with light blue / lavender. Knit rib keeping 1 st at each edge in garter st throughout. When the collar measures 6 cm make a buttonhole over the others on button band.

Can this be done on sports weight yarn?

DROPS Design 26.09.2018 kl. 07:58:

Dear Mrs Pteh, this pattern is worked with a tension of 21 sts x 28 rows with larger needles in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm in Angora-Tweed or Cotton Merino, ie yarn group B. Read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

If you are going to put a pattern out which is written in American English, why do you not use inches for the measurements? I was interested in this pattern for about 5 minutes or until looking at schematic, when I discovered cms instead of inches. Will keep looking and hopefully will find one which is written for Americans.

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 10:23:

Dear Millie, all measurements are written in inches in the US-English pattern - measurements in chart are always in cm - you can convert into inches here. Happy knitting!

Au sujet des bordures devant, pour éviter les trous, que signifie \"tourner la dernière m de la bordure devant avec la 1ère m du devant\"? Faut-il inverser les deux m? Faut-il le faire à chaque rang? Merci

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 10:26:

Bonjour Marie, il faut en fait croiser les fils à la transition entre la bordure devant et le jacquard lorsque l'on tricote l'empiècement, pour éviter les trous car la bordure des devants se tricote en bleu clair, le texte a été modifié, merci. Bon tricot!

I believe this pattern has a major flaw. The number of stiches is not correct for a repeating pattern of 22 stitches. For XL size Cast on 257, less 2X7 stitches for button hole band leaves 243 stitches to work the pattern on. The pattern requires a multiple of 22 for it to line up.. 243 /22 is 22 and one stitch which puts the pattern out if you are following from the chart. All sizes have the same problem - the cast on should be 190, 212, 235 and 257 respectively

DROPS Design 04.02.2016 kl. 10:22:

Dear Mrs Codognotto, in size XL, you work the 257 sts as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, 7 sts in rib (front band), repeat M.1 in width starting at the appropriate arrow in diagram until 8 sts remain (= work the last 11 sts in M.1, repeat M.1 a total of 10 times and work the first 10 sts in M.1), finish row with 7 sts in rib, 1 edge st in garter st. Happy knitting!

Mooi patroon, maar met tevens een beschrijving voor breien op 2 pennen maakt het een stuk eenvoudiger. Nu is het soms puzzelen cq improviseren. Dit geldt overigens voor meer patronen.

DROPS / Lena 07.01.2008 - 01:54:

The tric is just to hold the threads tight/loose enough, and keep a very even gauge. This is something that gets better the more you practise, but also steaming and blocking afterwards helps a lot.

Ann Marie Odar 05.01.2008 - 15:58:

Is there a technique for knitting stranded color work flat? I knit continental (I hold working wool in left hand-both colors, as taught to me by a Norwegian friend).
