GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
1 ridge = 2 rounds: * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

Worked in the round in a circle from mid back.
Cast on 8 sts with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 7 mm. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid up towards neck. Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time K 2 sts in every st = 16 sts. Insert 8 markers in piece with 2 sts between every marker. Continue in stocking st – AT THE SAME TIME inc with 1 YO after every marker (= 8 YOs per round) on every other round - on next round K YO to make a small hole over every YO.
Switch to circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 19-21-22-23 cm from centre, work next round as follows from mid of neck (this must be 1 round without inc): Work 19-20-22-24 sts, cast off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole) work until 43-46-50-54 sts remain, cast off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole), work the last 19-20-22-24 sts on round.
On next round cast on 24-26-28-30 new sts over each armhole.
Continue to work and inc as before until piece measures approx. 48-53-58-63 cm from centre. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST – see explanation above, and continue to inc when working in garter st as before. LOOSELY cast off with K.

Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 34-36-37-39 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 7 mm with 1 strand Delight and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk, work 3 ridges - then work in stocking st. When piece measures 10-13-14-10 cm, inc in each side: 1 st 6-7-9-10 times every 6.5-5.5-4.5-4.5 cm = 46-50-55-59 sts.
When piece measures 52-52-52-52 cm, cast off for sleeve cap at beg of every row: 3 sts 1 time in each side, then 1 st in each side until piece measures approx. 60-60-60-60 cm. Cast off the remaining sts.

Sew the sleeve seams inside 1 edge st. Sew in the sleeves so that middle of sleeve cap is placed where armholes are the closest tog (i.e where 1st st was cast on for first armhole and where last st was cast off on second armhole) and sleeve seams are placed where the armholes are the furthest apart (i.e. in opposite side).

Grazie mille per la risposta. Sempre disponibili 😊

Das habe ich getan, allerdings verweist mich der Laden wieder zurück an Sie, Drops, den Hersteller! Es kann doch nicht so schwer sein, zu erfahren ob der Farbverlauf der „Delight Fb 05“ und der „Delight Print Fb 05“ identisch ist oder nicht!?

Ich habe es kapiert!

Dies ist eine wunderschöne Jacke, welche ich gerade bereits zum zweiten Mal für meine Freundin stricke. So simpel, dass man sie regelrecht blind nebenbei stricken kann.

I've purchased the exact colors of yarn as suggested in your photo of drops 160-29 however the 05 color of Delight yarn as shown and described to be beige/gray/pink was more acurately brown/olive/black/beige/gray/burgundy/pink. Just wondered how those extra colors got in 05. Even your knitted swatch online only showed pink/gray colors. I hope these extra colors knit up nice because I was really going for the colorway shown online.

Ce pull est magnifique, facile à réaliser et très rapide...

Ich verstehe die Angaben für den Armausschnitt nicht. In Größe S/M soll ich bis zum Armausschnitt 19 M (im Bogen) stricken und laut Zeichnung entspricht das einer Länge (waagerecht - nicht im Bogen) von 15 cm. Laut Maschenprobe entsprechen 15 cm 21 M (gerade) im Bogen müssten es also noch mehr Maschen sein, damit ich waagerecht auf 15 cm komme. Stimmt nun die Maschenangabe oder sind es die cm? Ist der Armausschnitt richtig angegeben?

Super Strickanleitung. Habe sie in himbeerkuchen und natur gestrickt.

Ein dickes Lob für das tolle Modell. Hab die Jacke in Blautönen gestrickt, sieht Klasse aus. Ich muss für meine Freundin gleich noch eine stricken. Bei den Ärmellöchern muss man daran denken, die Zunahmen nicht zu vergessen. Ansonsten sehr einfach zu stricken. Am Schluss dauert die Runde entwas länger, ich hatte bei der letzten Runde 456 Maschen auf der Nadel.
