MEASURING TIP 1 (applies for body and back piece):

Cast on 61-65-71-75-81-87 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 7 mm with Eskimo. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above, for 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm (1st row = RS). Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, 20-22-23-25-26-29 sts in stocking st, work pattern according to diagram A.2 2 times in total (choose diagram for correct size = 2 repetitions of 10-10-12-12-14-14 sts), work in stocking st until 1 st remains on row and finish with 1 edge st in garter st. Continue like this with stocking st, pattern and 1 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm, dec 1 st in each side - READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 sts dec) and MEASURING TIP 1. Repeat dec in each side every 7-7-8-10-10-10 cm a total of 7-7-7-6-6-6 times = 47-51-57-63-69-75 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 61-63-65-67-69-71 cm. Now cast off for armholes at beg of every row in each side as follows: Cast off 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 1-2-2-3-3-3 times = 39-41-43-43-45-47 sts. When piece measures 78-81-84-87-90-93 cm, cast off the middle 9-9-11-11-11-13 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 1 st on next row from neck = 14-15-15-15-16-16 sts remain on the shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 80-83-86-89-92-95 cm. Repeat on the other shoulder.

Cast on 40-42-44-48-52-54 sts (incl 1 edge st in the side and 18-18-18-20-20-20 band sts towards mid front) on circular needle size 7 mm with Eskimo. Work first row as follows from RS: Work A.1 over the first 18-18-18-20-20-20 sts (= band), then work in garter st over the remaining 22-24-26-28-32-34 sts. Continue with A.1 over band and garter st over the remaining sts for 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm.

Continue like this with stocking st, pattern and 1 edge st in garter st towards the side. When piece measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm, dec in the side as on back piece. Repeat dec 7-7-7-6-6-6 times in total = 33-35-37-42-46-48 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm, dec for BUTTONHOLES - see explanation above. When piece measures 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm - REMEMBER MEASURING TIP 1, work in garter st over all sts (also over the 18-18-18-20-20-20 band sts) until finished measurements.

When piece measures 74-77-80-82-85-88 cm, slip the outermost 11-11-11-12-13-13 sts towards mid front on 1 stitch holder for neck (work them before slipping them on stitch holder to avoid cutting the yarn). Continue to cast off for neck at beg of every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 sts 1 time and then 1 st 2-2-2-3-3-3 times in total = 14-15-15-15-16-16 sts remain on shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 80-83-86-89-92-95 cm.

Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and work in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures 8-8-8-8-10-12 cm, inc 1 st in each side - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc) and MEASURING TIP 2. Repeat inc every 7½-6-6-5-4½-3½ cm 6-7-7-8-8-9 times in total = 38-42-44-46-50-52 sts. When piece measures 48-48-47-45-44-43 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders), cast off for sleeve cap at beg of every row in each side as follows: Cast off 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-2-2-2-2-2 time and 1 st 2-2-3-3-3-3 times.

Thank you very much. It's all about how the pattern is read. I took it as decreasing the 2 sts at the beg of the next 4 rows. That's where I made the mistake. ****NOTE**** The 2 st decrease each side 4x means, cast off 2 sts on the RS then cast off 2 sts on the WS. This counts as 1 time. Repeat this process 3 more times to give you the 16 sts less. Woo-hoo I have 47 sts remaining.

Peter Ackers 11.08.2019 - 17:57:

What the hell am I doing wrong?? I saw the error on the 75 sts decrease, I didnt notice the further decreasing. So I pulled it out, and corrected the error. I now have 75 sts on the neddle. Cast off 3 sts beg next 2 rows - 75-8=69. Next Cast off 2 sts beg next 4 rows - 69-8=61 sts remaining. Next is says decrease 1 st each end 3 times - 69-8=61 sts. The final step says to decrease 1 st each end 3 times for 6 sts total. That only equals 55 sts, where the heck are those decreased from??

DROPS Design 11.08.2019 kl. 18:25:

Hello Peter. You start with 75 sts. You cast off both on right and wrong side of work. You cast off 3 sts 1 time on each side of work (so after this decrease you must have 75-6= 69 sts). You then dec 2 sts 4 times each side (so this leaves you with 69 - 16 = 53 sts). Now you dec 1 st 3 times each side: 53 - 6 = 47 sts. Happy knitting!

Peter Ackers 09.08.2019 - 21:41:

Thanks for the info on the decreasing. I went back and looked at the pattern against and saw the decreases to 75 sts. I totally missed that part. Grrrr

Peter Ackers 09.08.2019 - 17:07:

Unless I'm reading section wrong, "Now bind off for armholes at beg of every row in each side as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 1-2-2-3-3-3 times = 39-41-43-43-45-47 sts" or the pattern is wrong somehow. From 85 sts currently on the needle, this decrease only drops to 65 sts, not 47. Have been knitting a long time and this is confusing lol

DROPS Design 09.08.2019 kl. 18:11:

Dear Peter, before binding off for the armholes for size XXXL you've 75 sts on needles. You've to bind off the sts at both sides as follows: 3 sts each side, 2 sts each side for 4 times and 1 st each side for 3 times, so 6+16+6= 28 sts decreased. 75-28 = 47 sts. Happy knitting!

Peter Ackers 22.07.2019 - 10:17:

What are the changes on the corrections page. Love the design.

DROPS Design 22.07.2019 kl. 19:25:

Hi Peter, if we get a report of a potential error, we will review the pattern and make the correction if necessary. This will be done normally within 7 to 10 working days. If no correction is made, it means that we weren't able to find any error/mistake. The pattern itself is corrected as well. Kind regards

Véronique 11.02.2019 - 18:55:

Bonjour, J’aimerai tricoter ce modèle par contre, j’aimerai que le col ferme jusqu’en haut, surtout pour l’hiver. Comment puis-je faire pour rajouter 3 rangées de boutons au-dessus des 3 déjà prévues ? Merci de votre retour. Cordialement.

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Véronique, commencez par exemple par le devant gauche avant le devant droit, et marquez les emplacements des boutons/boutonnières prévues avec des épingles, pour trouver l'emplacement idéal des autres boutons que vous souhaitez ajouter. Il sera ainsi plus simple de prévoir les boutonnières sur le devant droit là où vous les souhaitez. Bon tricot!

Emilie Cote 06.01.2019 - 18:57:

Bonjour, de combien de balle de laine ai-je besoin pour tricoter ce modèle dans le format moyen? Merci

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:36:

Bonjour Mme Cote, vous trouverez les quantités requises pour chaque taille, au poids, sous l'en-tête du modèle, soit 1050 g en taille M / 50 g la pelote DROPS Eskimo = 21 pelotes Eskimo en taille M. Bon tricot!

Sylvia 04.12.2018 - 12:39:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage zur Länge von Vorder- und Rückenteil. Es heißt: das Gestrick wird sich im Verhältnis zu den Maßen in der Maßskizze um ca. 10 cm in der Länge aushängen. Bedeutet dass, dass ich 10 cm in der Länge weniger stricke (liegend gemessen) als auf der Skizze angegeben? Somit wäre der Armausschnitt in Größe S bei 75 cm (5 cm kraus rechts + 70 cm) und nicht erst bei 85 cm (5 cm kraus rechts + 80 cm)? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 13:55:

Liebe Sylvia, messen Sie alle Teilen flach = das sind dieselben Massen, die Sie in der Maßskizze finden. Beim Tragen wird dann die Jacke ca 10 m länger wegen Gewicht der Wolle. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Petra 17.11.2018 - 22:46:

Alles perfekt anhand der tollen Anleitung und der sehr netten Betreuung bei Fragen, herzlichen Dank!

Petra 06.11.2018 - 09:24:

Der Halsausschnitt vorne bei den Teilen sieht etwas merkwürdig aus. Ich lege 11 M ab, dann direkt, also nach den 11 M den Ausschnitt beginnen mit der Abnahme, die in der Anleitung steht und später die 11M normal abk.?

DROPS Design 06.11.2018 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Petra, beim rechten Vorderteil stricken Sie die ersten 11 M dann diese Maschen stilllegen (= so brauchen Sie nicht den Faden abzuschneiden), die Reihe bis zur Ende stricken, wenden und die Rückreihe stricken. Dann wird es am Anfang jeder Hinreihe abgekettet (= 2 M 1x und 1 M 2-3 x) - beim linken Vorderteil werden diese Maschen am Anfang der Rückreihe stillgelegt/abgekettet. Die stillgelgten Maschen werden später fur die Kaputze aufgefasst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
