Work like this until piece measures 8-8-9-9-10-10 cm / 3 1/8''-3 1/8''-3½''-3½''-4''-4'' at the shortest, adjust so that the next row is worked from WS. K 17-18-19-20-22-22, cast on 25-29-32-35-33-41 sts at end of row for shoulder = 42-47-51-55-55-63 sts. Work 1 ridge in garter st over all sts.

When piece measures 13-15-16-15-15-17 cm / 5"-6"-6 1/4"-6"-6"-6 3/4" (adjust according to back piece, it is important to end on same row for the cables to fit onwards), inc for armhole at end of row from WS as follows: Inc 1 st 2-2-2-3-3-2 times, then cast on 2 sts 3-2-2-3-3-3 times and 3 sts 1-1-1-1-3-3 times = 61-66-70-79-85-94 sts. Work inc sts in stockinette st. When all sts are inc, put piece aside and work left front piece.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:

Insert 1 marker thread in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Move the markers upwards when working, the marker thread stays. On first row (= from RS) continue pattern as follows: 5 band sts in garter st, P 2, * A.1, P 3-2-3-2-2-2 *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-6 times in total, A.1, P 2, 22-18-18-24-36-34 in stockinette st (marker is in the middle of these sts), P 2, A.1, * P 3-2-3-2-2-2, A.1 *, repeat from *-* 7-9-9-11-11-13 times in total, P 2, 22-18-18-24-36-34 in stockinette st (marker is in the middle of these sts), P 2, * A.1, P 3-2-3-2-2-2 *, repeat from *-* 3-4-4-5-5-6 times in total, A.1, P 2, finish with 5 band sts in garter st.

What do you mean by ‘remember the gauge’ when knitting the shoulders?

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 13:48:

Dear Jane, it's just a small reminder that you should keep same tension as you had when checking your swatch first - to be sure that the finished project will have correct measurements. Happy knitting!

Crystel 30.10.2016 - 10:11:

Bonjour, Ce n'est pas clair pour moi pour le col en rangs raccourcis. Je fais la taille L, est-ce que ça veut dire que je tricote *2 rangs sur 19 mailles et 2 rangs sur 16 mailles * et ainsi de suite sur 9 cm ? D'avance merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 10:43:

Bonjour Chrystel, c'est exact, tricotez ainsi jusqu'à ce que le col mesure 9 cm du côté le plus court (pas côté des rangs raccourcis qui sera automatiquement plus long). Bon tricot!

Metzger Anneliese 22.01.2016 - 15:05:

Vos vestes sont tres belle ,la laine aussi .pourquoi commencer les vestes par le haut je trouve cela complique et le tricot devient tres lourd

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Mme Metzger, nos différents modèles se tricotent de façon différentes: de haut en bas (comme ici), de bas en haut, en 1 pièce jusqu'aux emmanchures ou chaque pièce séparément ... en fonction du choix de la styliste, du modèle etc. Bon tricot!

Jocelyne Brassard 18.09.2015 - 16:14:

Peut on faire ce modèle simplement en point Jersey . Si oui, la quantité de laine est-t-elle la même et le nombre de mailles est-t-il le même? Merci

DROPS Design 19.09.2015 kl. 09:45:

Bonjour Mme Brassard, pour une veste en jersey, la quantité de fil sera différente mais le nombre de mailles également. Il est recommandé dans ce cas de faire une recherche pour un modèle jersey. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

Eija Auvo 24.06.2015 - 16:07:

Ihana jakku! Etukappaleiden nappilistat tosin vetävät kuvassa ryppyyn. Vaihtoehtona on kutoa nappilistassa kerroksen viimeinen silmukka nurin ja nostaa seuraavan kerroksen ensimmäinen silmukka kutomatta. Näin siihen tulee ketjusilmukkareuna, joka ei vedä. // Underbar kofta! Sidorna på knapplistan ser ut att dra sig. Ett alternativ är att sticka den sista maskan på varvet avigt och lyfta den första maskan på följande varv utan att sticka den. Då blir sidan som en kedja som inte drar sig.

Karin 23.06.2015 - 21:28:

Wonderful, thats the pattern I was looking for.

José 13.06.2015 - 16:23:

Mooi getailleerd model met prachtige kabels. Helemaal mijn ding. Wat ik wat jammer vind is dat de voorpanden wat op trekken.

Ellis 08.06.2015 - 20:58:

Very nice jacket, think I make a picot edge that makes it less sloppy. I cannot see if there is a collar or not but I like it if the edges are double knitted. Nice cables.

Uschi 04.06.2015 - 09:23:

Perfekt, auch für grössere Damen :-)

Monica 03.06.2015 - 21:36:

Den känns som jag kan börja sticka nu
