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

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down.

Cast on 73-76-76-79-79-82 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands Alpaca. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Continue in garter st and work a collar with short rows, beg from RS: * Work all sts. Turn and work back until 5 sts remain in the other side. Turn and work until 5 sts remain, turn and work back until 10 sts remain. Turn and work until 10 sts remain, turn and work back over all sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time. Then work an elevation in the neck as follows: Work until 28-29-29-29-29-30 sts remain on needle, turn and work back until 28-29-29-29-29-30 sts remain in the other side. Turn and work until 25-26-26-26-26-27 sts remain on needle, turn and work back until 25-26-26-26-26-27 sts remain in the other side. Turn and work until 23-24-24-24-24-25 sts remain on needle, turn and work back until 23-24-24-24-24-25 sts remain in the other side. Turn and work the remaining sts (from RS), turn and work back over all sts. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES! Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Work 1 row in stocking st with 5 band sts in garter st in each side while inc 18-19-19-24-32-45 sts evenly (but not over band sts) = 91-95-95-103-111-127 sts. Continue the 5 band sts in garter st in each side of piece until finished measurements and work SHORT ROWS - see explanation above, over band sts. Work 1 row. Now work pattern as follows from RS: 5 band sts in garter st, A.3 (= 7 sts), 3-4-4-6-8-12 sts in stocking st, A.1 (= 8 sts), 6 sts in stocking st, A.2 (= 8 sts), 17-19-19-23-27-35 sts in stocking st, A.1, 6 sts in stocking st, A.2, 3-4-4-6-8-12 sts in stocking st, A.3, 5 band sts in garter st. NOTE: Note which way the cables go. Cables on back piece are reversed from each other and cables on each front piece are reversed from each other. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
On next row from RS beg inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above, on each side of every A.1 and A.2 (= 8 inc). Repeat inc every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 9-14-19-25-28-29 more times, and every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) 7-5-3-0-0-0 times = 227-255-279-311-343-367 sts. Piece measures approx. 21-22-23-24-26-27 cm measured along band. Now work as follows: Work the first 36-40-43-48-53-58 sts (= left front piece), slip the next 48-54-60-66-72-74 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, work the next 59-67-73-83-93-103 sts (= back piece), slip the next 48-54-60-66-72-74 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, work the remaining 36-40-43-48-53-58 sts (= right front piece).

BODY:
There are now 147-163-175-195-215-235 sts for body. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now work pattern as follows: 5 band sts in garter st, A.3, stocking st over the next 28-32-35-40-45-50 sts, insert a marker (= side), stocking st over the next 67-75-81-91-101-111 sts, insert a marker (= side), stocking st over the next 28-32-35-40-45-50 sts, A.3, 5 band sts in garter st. When piece measures 3 cm, dec 1 st on each side of each marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec when piece measures 5-6-7-8-8-9 cm = 139-155-167-187-207-227 sts. When piece measures 8-9-10-11-11-12 cm, work next row from RS as follows: 5 band sts in garter st, A.3, work 8 sts in stocking st. Work in stocking st over the next 12 sts in all sizes and inc 3 sts evenly. Work in stocking st over the next 20-28-34-44-54-64 sts. Work in stocking st over the next 35 sts in all sizes and inc 10 sts evenly. Work in stocking st over the next 20-28-34-44-54-64 sts. Work in stocking st over the next 12 sts and inc 3 sts evenly. Work in stocking st over the next 8 sts, A.3, 5 band sts in garter st. There are now 155-171-183-203-223-243 sts on needle.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Now continue with pattern and inc sts as explained below:
PATTERN AND INC BETWEEN CABLES:
On next row from RS work as follows: Work as before over the first 20 sts, A.4 (= 15 sts), stocking st over the next 6-10-13-18-23-28 sts, insert a new marker (follows down until inc in the sides are done), stocking st over the next 14-18-21-26-31-36 sts, A.5 (= 45 sts), stocking st over the next 14-18-21-26-31-36 sts, insert a new marker (follows down until inc in the sides are done), stocking st over the next 6-10-13-18-23-28 sts, A.4, work the remaining 20 sts as before. Continue like this back and forth until A.X has been worked 3 times in total vertically. Then work the remaining rows in A.4 and A.5. NOTE: Adjust so that cable in A.Z beg on same row as cable in A.3 towards mid front.
When entire A.4 and A.5 are done vertically, repeat A.Z until finished measurements, AT THE SAME TIME inc sts in stocking st as follows - see arrow in diagram: Work until 1 st before first repetition A.4, 1 YO, 1 st in stocking st, work the first 8 sts in A.4, 1 YO, stocking st until 8 sts remain in diagram, 1 YO, work the remaining 8 sts in A.4. Continue in stocking st until A.5. Work the first 8 sts in A.5, * 1 YO, stocking st until 1 st remains before next P st in diagram, 1 YO, work the next 9 sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 YO, work in stocking st until 1 st remains before next P st, 1 YO, work the remaining 8 sts in A.5. Then work in stocking st until next repetition A.4. Work the first 8 sts in A.4, 1 YO, stocking st until 8 sts remain in diagram, 1 YO, work the remaining 8 sts in A.4, 1 st in stocking st, 1 YO, work the remaining sts on row. 12 sts inc in total on row. On next row P YOs twisted to avoid holes. Repeat inc every 6th row 3 more times.
INC IN EACH SIDE:
When piece measures 12-13-14-15-15-16 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker in each side (= 4 sts inc) – see INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 2 cm 14-15-16-16-16-16 more times = 50-60-68-78-88-98 sts in every section with stocking st in each side.

When all inc in diagram and in the sides are done, there are 274-294-310-330-350-370 sts on needle. Continue with pattern until piece measures 69-71-73-75-77-79 cm, adjust so that next row from RS is 3rd row in A.3. Now continue pattern and inc sts in sections with stocking st as follows: Inc 1 st in section with stocking st inside bands and A.3 in each side, and inc 3-3-5-5-5-5 sts evenly in section with stocking st in each side of jacket (i.e. between A.4 and A.5) = 282-302-322-342-362-382 sts. Now work a finishing edge as follows: 5 band sts in garter st, A.3, 3 sts in stocking st, A.3, 3 sts in stocking st, continue the next 28 sts as before, * 3 sts in stocking st, A.3 *, repeat from *-* 4-5-6-7-8-9 more times, 3 sts in stocking st, work the next 70 sts as before, ** 3 sts in stocking st, A.3 **, repeat from **-** 4-5-6-7-8-9 more times, 3 sts in stocking st. Work the next 28 sts as before, 3 sts in stocking st, A.3, 3 sts in stocking st, A.3, 5 band sts in garter st. Continue like this until A.3 has been worked 3 times vertically. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work 1 row in stocking st while inc 16-18-19-20-22-22 sts evenly (but not over bands) = 298-320-341-362-384-404 sts. Work 3 ridges and cast off.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve in stocking st in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. There are 48-54-60-66-72-74 sts for each sleeve. Slip sts from stitch holder back on circular needle/double pointed needles size 5 mm and cast on 8 new sts under sleeve = 56-62-68-74-80-82 sts. Work in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under sleeve. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.
When piece measures 3 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat dec approx. every 3-2½-2-1½-1½-1 cm, 9-11-13-16-19-19 more times = 36-38-40-40-40-42 sts. When sleeve measures 34-33-33-33-32-31 cm, inc 1 st = 37-39-41-41-41-43 sts. On next round, work as follows: Work the first 15-16-17-17-17-18 sts, A.3, work the remaining 15-16-17-17-17-18 sts. Continue like this until A.3 has been worked 6 times vertically. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and inc 2-2-3-3-3-3 sts evenly = 39-41-44-44-44-46 sts. Work 3 ridges. Cast off. Knit another sleeve the same way.

Sharon Harold 12.05.2019 - 23:40:

My bust measures 46 inches. What size am I? I don't understand your numbers.

DROPS Design 13.05.2019 kl. 10:17:

Dear Mrs Harold, all measurements in chart are in cm taken flat from side to side, to get the circumference of piece you have to multiply the number by 2. Measure a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more about sizing and convert into inch/cm here. Happy knitting!

Deej Diamante 24.04.2019 - 09:49:

How many balls of the yarn should I get? It says 700g...so I should get 14 balls. But the pattern also says I should use 2 strands... is the 700g include the 2 strands or should I get 28 balls? Sorry, I am a new knitter for big wearables so I don’t have an idea of how much yarn is enough.

DROPS Design 24.04.2019 kl. 09:58:

Dear Deej, 700g is the total amount of yarn you need. Happy knitting!

Linda Brewster 03.01.2019 - 02:39:

I am a fairly new knitter but like a challenge. I'm trying to knit the renaissance sweater and am having trouble figuring out A3 and A1 and 2. After you complete the four rows in A3, do you start over with the first two rows of simply purling the first two rows then do the PSSA. When I do that, my "cable" is much longer than the one in the picture. The same question for A 1 and 2. I hope this question makes sense.

DROPS Design 03.01.2019 kl. 08:38:

Dear Mrs Brewster, when diagrams have been worked in height, repeat them from row 1. This means when you have worked the 4 rows in A.3, start from row 1 again with P2, K3, P2. When you have worked the 8 rows in A.1/A.2, start from row 1 again, this mean you will have 7 rows between each cable (= 5 rows after the cable at the end of repeat + 2 rows before next cable at the beg of next repeat). Happy knitting!

Laura Abrunhosa 26.12.2018 - 19:50:

Olá. No ponto fantasia, como é feito o avesso? Em meia?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 12:03:

Bom dia, O gráfico do ponto fantasia mostra as carreiras do direito e do avesso, pelo que, no avesso, deve tricotar como está mostrado nos gráficos. Bom tricô!

Marina Verhaeghe 04.12.2018 - 09:27:

Het schema van A3 bestaat uit 4 naalden?????? Of zijn de teruggaande nld niet aangegeven?? Omdat je in de 4de nld een omslag moet maken en dat meestal niet gedaan wordt

Kuinka paljon ohjeeseen 165-3 tarvitsee drops big merino lankaa, malli XL?

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 17:12:

20 kerää Big Merino -lankaa tulisi riittää kyseisen jakun neulomiseen.

Francine Grenier 08.03.2018 - 01:43:

This part I get it but I already slip my stitch for my armhole. Where do I start the increase for the 15 times every 4 rows for the side (60Rows)?

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 09:26:

Dear Mrs Grenier, begin the increases on the sides when piece measures 12 cm from where sts were divided from yoke. (size S: inc 1 st on each side of both markers on the sides every 2nd cm a total of 15 times). Happy knitting!

Francine Grenier 07.03.2018 - 13:48:

The size is small I find this jacket so attractive I will be sad that I would not be able to did it Thank you for anwsesring so quickly

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 16:00:

Dear Mrs Grenier, you will work a total of 48 rows after the garter st edge on neckline, ie 4 first row after neck edge + a total of 48 rows for raglan increase = approx. 21 cm. Remember to measure along front band edge worked in garter st. Happy knitting!

Francine Grenier 06.03.2018 - 19:56:

I am trying to write down the instruction but nothing make sense. 22rows for 10cm would be about 168 row. After armhole I am at 66 rows If I make all the lenght of A4 68 row and AZ about 14 times and incorporate the 15 increase for the side I am up to 200 rows and I have to make the edging. aftere 50 years of knitting I never thaught I will come face to face to a pattern I do not understad LOL. Have you make a new version with the update?

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 08:31:

Dear Mrs Grenier, could you please tell us the size you are writing?

Nel 27.02.2018 - 14:00:
