Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
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).

Ich bin gerade an der Stelle, an der ich mit den Ärmelausschnitten beginne. Ich habe für Größe L 40 Reihen gestrickt und somit 20x8 Maschen zugenommen, das sind insgesamt 168 Maschen. Wenn ich Ihre Angaben zusammenzähle, komme ich nur auf 92 Maschen. 2x26 Maschen für die armausschnitte und 2x20 Maschen für den Rest. Wo liegt mein Fehler? Vielen Dank für eine Antwort!

Liebe Barbara, so sollen Sie die Ärmelausschnitte stricken: 20 M str, 26 M abketten (= Armausschnitt), dann stricken Sie bis noch 46 M übrig sind, dann die nächsten 26 M abketten (= Armausschnitt), und die letzten 20 M der Rd str, dh nach dem 1. Armausschnitt stricken Sie bis die 26 M für den 2. Armausschnitt + die letzten 20 M übrig sind. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

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.

Bonjour, je voudrais savoir s'il est possible de bâtir ce modèle au crochet. Si oui quel numéro de crochet et quel fils et éventuellement les explications pour le crochet. Merci

DROPS Design 25.04.2016 kl. 15:30:

Bonjour Sixtine, vous trouverez ici quelques modèles de gilets/vestes de la même construction (= en rond), mais au crochet et dans différentes tensions (avec différents fils). Bon crochet!

Jeanne 10.04.2016 - 12:27:

Would like to know what does it mean exactly 'the same time K 2 sts in every st = 16 sts.'. Thanks.

DROPS Design 10.04.2016 kl. 18:24:

Dear Jeanne, the video below shows how to K 2 sts in the same st, ie alternately in front and back of loop of the st. Happy knitting!

Dear Jeanne. Here is a video that explains how to work these stitches:

Nicky 09.04.2016 - 19:10:

I would like to knit this in a single yarn. Is this possible? What yarn group could I explore?

DROPS Design 09.04.2016 kl. 19:23:

Dear Nicky, this pattern is knitted with 1 strand of Delight (group A) and 1 strand of Brushed Alpaca Silk (group C). As group C corresponds to two strands of group A, if you want to knit it in single strand, you can refer to group D which is 3 strands of group A. Happy knitting!

Chantal 09.04.2016 - 13:04:

En el patron dice: trabajar una vuelta en punto jersey -> serian una vuelta de derecho + una vuelta de reves? Ademas sigue: 'mientras que al mismo tiempo se trabajan 2 d. en cada pt = 16 pts. Que significa "2 d."? Hay que agregar un punto ahi? Gracias!

DROPS Design 10.04.2016 kl. 17:09:

Hola Chantal. Esta prenda se trabaja en redondo. Trabajar 1 vta en pt jersey significa trabajar 1 vta con todos los pts de derecho. El término "vuelta" lo utilizamos cuando trabajamos en redondo, cuando trabajamos de ida y vta utilizamos el término "fila". Trabajar 2 d. en 1 pt significa que en cada pt trabajamos 2 pts, 1 por el bucle de delante y otro por el bucle de detrás del pt.

Me encanta este chaleco pero no entiendo las explicaciones. Desde ya gracias. Angela

Hélène 07.03.2016 - 04:40:

Le rang ou l'on tricote 2 fois à l'endroit dans la même maille - Est-ce que l'on répète ce rang aux 2 tours tout le long du tricot ? Merci

DROPS Design 07.03.2016 kl. 10:37:

Bonjour Hélène, après avoir tricoté 2 fois chaque m à l'end, on place 8 marqueurs et on va augmenter tous les 2 tours 1 m après chaque marqueur (= on a 8 marqueurs soit 8 jetés à chaque tour d'augmentations). Tricotez ensuite 1 tour sans augmentez et répétez ces 2 tours. Bon tricot!
