CARDIGAN:

Gauge: 5 sts x 6 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Measuring tips: Measure the piece when lying flat, otherwise it will be too short when worn.

Cardigan: The body and sleeve are knit in one piece, starting at the lower edge of Body and casting on sts for sleeve, then the shoulder seams are joined in Kitchener st (see Fig. 1 on page 24 of Drops No. 89).

Back: Cast on 25-27-29-32-34 sts around 2 needles (so that the cast-on edge will be elastic), pull out one needle and knit 2 rows garter st, then continue in stockinette st.
When the piece measures 20 cm dec 1 st at each side = 23-25-27-30-32 sts.
When the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm start increasing for the sleeves. Loosely cast on new sts at each side every other row (that is, at the end of every row): 2 sts 2 times, 4 sts 2 times and then 6-6-6-5-5 sts 1 time = 59-61-63-64-66 sts. Continue in stockinette st, keeping 1 st in garter st at each side (cuff edge).
When the piece measures 79-82-85-88-91 cm bind off the center 3-3-3-4-4 sts for the neck. On the next row dec 1 st at each neck edge = 27-28-29-29-30 sts remain on each shoulder + sleeve. Put sts on a st holder.
When you dec 1 st at the other side of the neck, begin at neck edge, start by picking up 1 st in the 1st bound off st and K tog with the 1st st. This will prevent the neck from stretching out.

Right front: Cast on 16-17-18-19-20 sts (incl. 3 edge st at the center front) around 2 needles. Pull out one needle and knit 2 rows garter st. Then knit stockinette st, keeping 1 st at center front edge in garter st. When the piece measures 40 cm dec 1 st at the side = 15-16-17-18-19 sts.
When the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm cast on new sts at the side for sleeve as on back = 33-34-35-35-36 sts.
Continue in stockinette st, keeping 1 st in garter st at center front edge and at cuff edge.
When the piece measures 82-85-88-91-94 cm put the 27-28-29-29-30 sts on shoulder + sleeves on a st holder and the remaining 6 sts on a second st holder.

Left front: Cast on and knit the same as the right, reversing shaping.

Assembly: Join shoulder-sleeve seams with Kitchener st - see Fig.1.
Neckband: Put the 6 sts from st holder on one side back on needles and knit stockinette st until edge measures approx. 5-6 cm from shoulder, put sts back on st holder. Repeat on the other side of neck and then join neckband at center back with Kitchener st. Sew neckband to back neck. Sew sleeve and side seams in one, making sure that the seam is not too tight.
Belt: If you wish a belt knit as follows: Cast on 5 sts around 2 needles. Pull out one needle and knit garter st. When belt measures approx. 100-130 cm bind off all sts loosely.

Klopt het aantal gram garen wel wat er bij staat. Dat houdt in dat ik maar 4 bollen melody nodig heb. Lijkt me zo weinig.

Hoi Josephien, Ja, dat zou moeten kloppen. Doordat het een zeer open breisel is, heb je weinig garen nodig.

Robineau 05.09.2015 - 15:45:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas comment le dos, le devant et les manches peuvent être tricotés en une seule pièce avec une paire d'aiguilles droites. Pouvez-vous m'éclairer ?

DROPS Design 07.09.2015 kl. 09:47:

Bonjour Mme Robineau, dans le cas présent, ce modèle est tricoté en différentes parties assemblées entre elles à la fin, mais sans rabattre les mailles de l'épaule+manche pour pouvoir faire un montage en grafting et éviter les coutures disgrâcieuses. Bon tricot!

Je l'ai tricoté en PUDDEL, il est magnifique!
