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

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 153-165-177-189-201-213 sts (incl 5 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows: A.1 (= band), A.2 (= 5 sts), A.3 (= 12 sts) over the next 132-144-156-168-180-192 sts, work A.4 (= 6 sts), finish with A.1 (= band). When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 131-141-151-161-171-181 sts on needle. Continue with pattern as before but work A.5 over every repetition of A.3. When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue as follows: A.1, A.2, A.5, P 1, stocking st over the next 89-99-109-119-129-139 sts, A.5, A.4, A.1. Continue pattern like this. Insert 2 markers in the piece; 36-38-40-43-45-48 sts in from each side (back piece = 59-65-71-75-81-85 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 6 cm, dec 1 st on each side of every marker (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 6½-7½-8½-9½-10½-11½ cm 3 more times = 115-125-135-145-155-165 sts. When piece measures 28-31-34-37-40-43 cm, cast off 6 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 3 sts on both sides of every marker) and finish each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 49-51-57-61-67-71 sts. Continue cast off for armholes in each side at beg of every row as follows: 2 sts 1-1-2-2-2-2 times and 1 st 1-1-1-1-2-3 times = 43-45-47-51-55-57 sts. When piece measures 38-42-46-50-54-58 cm, cast off the middle 17-19-21-23-23-25 sts for neck. Then cast off 1 st on next row towards the neck = 12-12-12-13-15-15 sts remain on the shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 40-44-48-52-56-60 cm.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 29-31-33-36-38-41 sts. Cast off for armhole in the side as on back piece = 26-28-28-31-32-34 sts. When piece measures 39-43-47-51-55 cm, slip the first 10-12-12-14-13-15 sts from mid front on a stitch holder for neck. Then cast off at beg of every row from RS: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 12-12-12-13-15-15 sts remain on the shoulder – work the sts that do not fit the pattern in stocking st. Cast off when piece measures 40-44-48-52-56-60 cm.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 29-31-33-36-38-41 sts. Work as left front piece but reversed.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 30-33-33-34-36-36 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work 2 ridges, then work in stocking st. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. When piece measures 6 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker. Inc every 4-4½-5-4-4-4 cm 4-4-5-7-8-9 more times = 40-43-45-50-54-56 sts. When piece measures 25-30-33-37-41-44 cm, cast off 6 sts mid under sleeve for armhole. Then work sleeve back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME dec for sleeve cap in each side as follows: Dec 2 sts in each side 2 times, 1 st in each side 0-0-1-1-1-2 times, then dec 2 sts in each side until piece measures 29-34-38-42-46-50 cm. Dec 3 sts in each side, then cast off the remaining sts. Piece measures approx. 30-35-39-43-47-51 cm. Knit another sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves.

HOOD:
Pick up approx. 62-78 sts around the neck (incl sts on stitch holders at the fronts) on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand of each yarn. K 1 row from WS, then K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME inc evenly to 76-78-80-82-84-86 sts. Continue in stocking st and A.1 in each side. When piece measures 25-26-27-28-29-30 cm, cast off all sts. Sew or use grafting/kitchener sts to work the hood tog at the top.

Boa noite, FRENTE ESQUERDA: A 39-43-47-51-55 cm de altura total, colocar em espera para o decote as 10-12-12-14-13-15 primeiras ms/pts a partir do meio da frente num alfinete de ms/pts. Arrematar então no princípio de cada carreira pelo direito: 1 vez 2 ms/pts e 2 vezes 1 m/p - Estes remates são no decote ou do lado da cava? Não entendo, Obrigada

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 17:13:

Boa tarde, Estes remates são no lado do decote. Bom tricô!

Agnès Savigny 07.12.2018 - 14:35:

Bonjour! pour le devant gauche: glisser en attente pour l'encolure les 14 premières mailles à partir du milieu devant. je ne comprends pas de quelles mailles on parle, d'où on commence à compter? merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 14:43:

Bonjour Mme Savigny, en début de rang sur l'envers (devant gauche), tricotez les 14 premières mailles du rang et glissez-les en attente sur un fil, continuez le rang jusqu'à la fin. Vous avez maintenant mis 14 m en attente côté encolure (vous reprendrez ces mailles plus tard pour la capuche), au début du rang suivant sur l'envers, rabattez les mailles pour l'encolure comme indiqué (= 1 x 2 m et 2 x 1 m). Bon tricot!

M. Paulis 22.08.2018 - 15:08:

Kan dit patroon ook zonder capuchon en zo ja, hoe pas ik dat aan? Als het niet kan heeft u dan een soortgelijk patroon voor een lang kindervest met meerder knopen voor de sluiting? Leeftijd 2-3.

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 17:52:

Dag M. Paulis, In plaats van een capuchon te breien na het opnemen van steken rondom de hals, zou je een boord kunnen breien. Het is dan wel mooi om een extra knoopsgat te maken zodat het vest tot bovenaan dicht kan.

Gerlinda Hoogeboom 11.03.2018 - 18:58:

Ik merk dat jullie eigenlijk, zover ik zie, alleen maar rondbreinaalden gebruiken. Hebben jullie nou helemaal geen patronen voor gewoon 2 naalden, ik ( en ik ben niet de enige) vind het breien op een rondbreinaald verschrikkelijk, net als met 4 breinaalden breien.

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 09:15:

Hallo Gerlinda, Onze ontwerpen komen uit Noorwegen en daar is het heel gebruikelijk om alles met rondbreinaalden te breien. Veel patronen kunnen echter ook aangepast worden zodat je ze met rechte naalden kunt breien. Klik hier voor meer informatie daarover. In het geval van dit patroon moet je even kijken hoe je uitkomt met de kantrand onderaan. Misschien is het mogelijk (bij een kleine maat) om voor- en achterpand beide op een rechte naald te zetten.

Claessens Danièle 15.02.2018 - 22:42:

Bonjour, je fais le modèle children 26-13 et j'ai un doute au niveau de l'arrondi de la manche à la fin je trouve 26 mailles restantes et celui ci ci me parait petit par rapport à l'emmanchure. Vous serait il possible de me confirmer que mes calculs sont bons et que la longueur totale de la manche est bien 47 cm Je vous remercie

DROPS Design 16.02.2018 kl. 09:48:

Bonjour Mme Claessens, en fonction de la taille et du nombre de rangs en hauteur, le nombre de mailles restant à la fin de l'arrondi de la manche peut varier, mais si votre manche mesure bien la bonne longueur, alors tout est juste, l'arrondi (en commençant par les 6 m rabattues sous la manche d'un côté jusqu'à l'autre côté) sera ensuite assemblé le long de l'emmanchure dos/devant. Bon tricot!

Sarah 04.03.2017 - 22:07:

Hi, i do not quite understand how to do the pattern on the second row. Do i follow the same order as on the 1 st row: A1, A2, A3, A4, A1 or do I reverse: A1, A4, A3, A2, A1? Thank you

DROPS Design 06.03.2017 kl. 09:25:

Dear Sarah, you have to work the diagrams reversed from WS so that each diagram will follow, read diagram from the left towards the right from WS. Happy knitting!

Mirjam 27.01.2017 - 16:30:

Ik kom niet uit met de steken op het achterpand. 32 voor links, 32 voor rechts, 51 voor het achterpand = 115 st. 51-/- 3 st aan weerskanten voor de armsgaten = 45 (geen 49 st) 45-/- 1x2 1x1 aan weerskanten =39 (geen 43 st) 39-/- 17 voor de hals = 22 22-/-1 st voor de hals =20 blijven er dus 10st over voor elke schouder ipv 12 Zie ik nu iets over het hoofd? Met vriendelijke groet, Mirjam Goudswaard

DROPS Design 02.02.2017 kl. 14:54:

Hoi Mirjam. Je hebt 125 st en kant 6 st af aan beide zijkanten. Na de minderingen (4 keer totaal) heb je 34 st op elk voorpand en 57 voor het achterpand. 6 st afkanten voor elk armsgat: 31 voor elk voorpand en 51 (3 aan beide zijkanten) voor het achterpand. Dan kant je 6 st verder af aan beide zijkanten van het achterpand = 45 st over. 19 middelste af = 13 st op elke schouder + nog 1 st afkanten = 12 over. Hetzelfde voor het voorpand: 31 st - 3 = 28 st over - 12 st middenvoor = 16 en dan nog 4 st afkanten = 12 st over

Israa Ezzat 01.11.2016 - 08:57:

Why 2 button holes in each band? I think a band shouls have a one button hole and the other band should have no holes to fasten the button. Can you please explain.

DROPS Design 01.11.2016 kl. 12:34:

Dear Mrs Ezzat, front bands do have holes all the way (= lace pattern), but not all holes from front bands will be used to button. Happy knitting!

Johanna VanSpronsen 21.06.2016 - 19:35:

Row 7 of A.1 makes two holes (for button holes?); should the holes be made just on the right side of work?

DROPS Design 22.06.2016 kl. 09:35:

Dear Mrs VanSpronsen, A.1 is worked on both front band sts, ie on right and left band. The holes in A.1 are used then to button at the end. Sew the buttons on the opposite band. Happy knitting!

Naresh Sachdev 17.06.2016 - 14:19:

I need help with Bright Sally drops design. When you work A3 you are decreasing 2 stitches. How does this work. Where is corresponding increase in stitches. I could not find video explaining the pattern. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

DROPS Design 17.06.2016 kl. 15:44:

Dear Mrs Sachdev, dec in A.3 as shown in the video below - you dec 2 sts in each A.3 - 10 sts remain in each A.3. See also 2nd video showing how to work A.1, A.2, A.3 and A.5. Happy knitting!
