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).

Vous dites de tricoter jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 46 mailles pour la taille L. Ces mailles correspondent aux 26 emmanchures et 20 derniers tours, mais ces 20 mailles sont elles les mêmes que celles du debut du tour ou alors y a t'il 40 mailles en réalité? Merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 14:08:

Bonjour Mme Giaffreda, pour la 2ème emmanchure, continuez jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 46 m avant la fin du tour, rabattez 26 m (2ème emmanchure) et tricotez les 20 dernière m du tour. Montez bien ensuite 26 m au-dessus des m rabattues pour chacune des emmanchures au tour suivant. Bon tricot!

Wanneer ik de 19 cm hoogte heb bereikt moet ik de volgende naald beginnen midden boven bij de hals om de armsgaten te maken. Is dit gelijk aan het begin van mijn nieuwe naald?

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 15:52:

Hoi Femke. Ja, je begint de naald en breit zoals beschreven: Brei 19-20-22-24 st, kant 24-26-28-30 st af (= armsgat) brei tot er 43-46-50-54 st over zijn, kant 24-26-28-30 st af (= armsgat), brei de laatste 19-20-22-24 st op de nld.

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?

Saisinko rautalangasta kummalla kerroksella PÄÄTTELEN silmukat kädenteitä varten, langankiertokerroksella vai langankierrottomalla? Kiitos jo etukäteen:)

DROPS Design 05.06.2015 kl. 14:13:

Hei! Silmukat päätetään kerroksella, jolla ei tehdä langankiertoja :)

Hannah 29.05.2015 - 12:12:

Hi, When working the back do you continue to work YO on alternate rows until the back piece measures 19-21-23-23cm from center......Work 1 row with no increase to make the arm holes....... work 1 row casting on over armholes........then continue in pattern with the YO over the marker until it measures 48-53-58-63.......3 rows Garter and cast off loosely.

DROPS Design 29.05.2015 kl. 14:04:

Dear Hannah, sts for armholes are cast off on a row without inc (without YOs), but afterwards you continue as before, ie with YOs every other round. Happy knitting!

Elsebeth 13.05.2015 - 20:08:

Vedr. aflukning og opslagning af masker til ærmegab: Jeg mener der skal slåes 1 maske mere op, end der bliver lukket af, idet opslagningen foretages på den omgang, hvor der slås nye masker op. Hilsen Elsebeth

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 09:17:

Hej Elsebeth, du slår det samme maskeantal op som du har lukket af. God fornøjelse!

Joan 07.05.2015 - 15:42:

Using the yarn as suggested in this pattern, should this be blocked before sewing in the sleeves or after? what type of blocking is recommended, steam or wet?

DROPS Design 07.05.2015 kl. 15:54:

Dear Joan, blocking can be done either before or after sewing sleeves - rather block wet since Brushed Alpaca Silk cannot be ironed (see label and care instructions on shadecard). Happy knitting!

Aline 04.05.2015 - 12:56:

I bought the yarn to knit this pattern. The Drops Delight yarn I got in color 05 is much darker than what is shown on the picture here, a lot more like pattern 124-16. And this is really not a computer-screen problem. Did you cut the dark parts of the yarn? Or did you lighten the final picture?

DROPS Design 05.05.2015 kl. 09:32:

Dear Aline, pattern 124-16 is worked with 2 strands Delight while this jacket is worked with 1 strand Delight + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk, this will change the final colour adding some more pink. Happy knitting!

Hallo, die Jacke ist ein Traum und sollte meine erste Kreisjacke werden. Sie sieht sehr "kuschlig" aus. Meine Frage wäre ob das Garn "fusselt" beim Tragen oder stricken??? Ein Alptraum ist ein so schönes Stück trotzdem wenn es auf dunkleren Kleidungstücken "abhaart". Wäre super wenn Sie mir weiterhelfen könnten. Dann kann ich die Wolle ruckzuck bestellen und loslegen!!! Danke und Lg

DROPS Design 16.05.2015 kl. 16:25:

Beide Garne sind von Natur aus etwas "fusselanfälliger" als andere, da Drops Delight recht locker nur einfädig gesponnen ist (aber dadurch auch schön weich ist) und Brushed Alpaca Silk ein Flauschgarn ist, was ja als Eigenschaft hat, dass viele Garnfasern hervorstehen, dadurch kann sich natürlich auch mal die eine oder andere lösen. Wenn Sie auf Nummer sicher gehen wollen, nehmen Sie statt Delight z.B. Fabel, die Wolle gibt es ja auch in Verlaufsfarben (beachten Sie in diesem Fall, dass Sie die benötigte Garnmenge anhand der Lauflänge umrechnen müssen). Und meiner eigenen Erfahrung nach fusselt Brushed Alpaca Silk nur sehr wenig.

Hi! How did you measure the cross-back measurement (30-32-34-36)? If I measure on myself, is it supposed to include the top of my shoulders? Or can I assume it's similar to a "regular armhole" and I can assume I need less fabric there? Thanks in advance for your help!

DROPS Design 30.04.2015 kl. 16:23:

Dear Aline, these 30-32-34-36 cm are measurement between both armholes, measured at the top of them -towards neckline.
