See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

Worked in a circle from mid back in the round.

Cast on 8 sts with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 sts on per needle). Work according to A.1 (= 8 repetitions of A.1 in width). When the first 27 rounds in A.1 have been worked, displace beg of round 1 st towards the left first on every other round, then every 4th round – i.e. beg of round is always before first YO in diagram so make it less visible. Beg of round at the end will be in the middle of first repetition of A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Switch to circular needle when needed. When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, there are 208 sts on round, piece measures approx. 34 cm / 13½'' in diameter. Insert 8 markers in piece, insert 1st marker in 1st st on round, then insert 7 markers in sts with 25 sts apart, markers are directly over tip on each leaf. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc 1 st on each side of markers. Inc with 1 YO on each side of sts with marker – on next round P YO twisted to avoid holes = 16 inc sts per round. Repeat inc every other round 1-2-3 more times (= 32-48-64 inc sts in total) = 240-256-272 sts.

On next round K, AT THE SAME TIME bind off all sts between 2nd and 3rd marker and 7th and 8th marker for armholes (= bind off 30-32-34 sts in each side). P next round, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 30-32-34 new sts over the bind off sts between 2nd and 3rd marker and 7th and 8th marker. When all sts are cast on again, there are 240-256-272 sts on needle.

Then work as follows: Work A.2 over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of sts with marker on every round with star (= 16 sts per inc round) = 384-400-416 sts. Piece measures approx. 66-68-70 cm / 26"-26 3/4"-27½" in diameter.

Then work as follows: Keep sts between 2nd and 4th marker on needle, slip the remaining sts on a stitch holder = 96-100-104 sts on needle. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - back and forth over these sts, AT THE SAME TIME at the end of every row slip the last 2 sts on stitch holder (do not work them, turn). NOTE: Continue with inc on each side of the 3rd marker every 4th row. Continue until 44 sts remain on needle. Slip the last 44 sts on stitch holder.

Slip sts between 6th and 8th marker on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10, and work the same way in this side. Then K all sts from RS back onto circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 - pick up and twist yarn between every time st on stitch holder in each side is slipped on needle (i.e. between every other st to avoid holes in transition) = approx. 512-540-568 sts. Work 4 ridges in garter st, bind off.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 32-32-40 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work A.3 1 time vertically (= 4-4-5 repetitions in width), on last round inc 1 st = 33-33-41 sts. Insert 1 marker in first st at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Then work in stockinette st but on every other round work as follows: Beg 2 sts before st with marker: K 2 tog, 1 YO, st with marker, 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, work in stockinette st over the remaining sts. On next round K YO to make hole, there should be an eyelet row upwards mid under sleeve, but no of sts remain the same. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', beg inc mid under sleeve, work YOs and stockinette st as before but do NOT dec on each side of YOs = 2 sts inc. Repeat inc this way every 3 cm / 1'' 13-14-14 more times = 61-63-71 sts. Work until piece measures 54-55-56 cm / 21 1/4"-21½"-22", bind off. Make another sleeve.

Sew in sleeves.

Buon pomeriggio, sono arrivata al punto in cui bisogna dividere le maglie per lavorare i due davanti e precisamente quando dice tenere le maglie tra il 2° ed il 4° segnapunti (100 maglie) , queste maglie vanno da quella che determina il secondo segnapunti ed il terzo segnapunti , fino a quella prima del 4° segnaposti. Giusto? Grazie Loredana

DROPS Design 11.07.2016 kl. 16:29:

Buongiorno Loredana. Sì è corretto, le m vanno dalla m con il secondo segnapunti alla m prima del quarto segnapunti. Buon lavoro!

Loredana 21.06.2016 - 13:18:

Grazie! Ho risolto lavorando i primi giri con il Magic loop.... Adesso vi chiedo questo, dopoil 21 giro bisogna spostare l'inizio giro di una maglia verso sinistra...cosa s'intende? Spostare la prima maglia di ogni ferro sul ferro di destra? Grazie

DROPS Design 21.06.2016 kl. 13:24:

Buongiorno Loredana, deve semplicemente spostare il segnapunti di inizio giro (se lo utilizza) di 1 m verso sinistra prima a giri alterni poi ogni 4 giri, in modo che il giro inizi sempre prima del 1° gettato nel diagramma. Buon lavoro!

Loredana 21.06.2016 - 11:01:

Buongiorno! Sto cercando d'iniziare il lavoro ma non riesco a tenere le maglie sul gioco di ferri.....si sfilano in continuazione!!!!! Avete qualche suggerimento da darmi? Grazie mille, Loredana

DROPS Design 21.06.2016 kl. 11:09:

Buongiorno Loredana. Potrebbe applicare alle punte dei ferri dei salvapunte in modo che le maglie non si sfilino, oppure usare dei ferri circolari con un cavo corto e finché il numero delle m è molto basso, utilizzare la tecnica del magic loop. Trova un esempio della tecnica nel video sotto. Buon lavoro!

Das Modell ist super. Mir stellt sich nur folgende Frage: man soll, nachdem man die ersten 21 Rd. von A1 gestrickt hat, den Rd.Anfang immer um eine M nach links verschieben zuerst in jeder 2. Rd. dann in jeder 4. Rd.. Wann genau in welchen Runden soll ich das machen? Das heißt wie oft in der 2. und wie oft in der 4. Rd? Für Hilfe wäre ich dankbar. Viele Grüße Ulrike B.

DROPS Design 20.06.2016 kl. 20:34:

Hallo Ulrike, verschieben Sie so lange, bis das Rd-Ende zuletzt mitten im ersten Rapport von A.1 ist.

Stricke die Jacke gerade mit Drops Big Delight Sonnenaufgang, sieht ganz toll aus! Allerdings ist eine Rundnadel mit 80 cm etwas knapp bemessen, wenn man sich dem Ende nähert, immerhin hat die Jacke einen Durchmesser von einem Meter! Ich habe mir daher eine neue mit 120 cm Seillänge bestellt.

Le résultat de ce travail est MAGNIFIQUE ! Merci pour ces beaux modèles. Avez-vous aussi un modèle pour enfant (10 ans) à faire de la même façon ? Merci Yvette

DROPS Design 12.02.2016 kl. 14:50:

Bonjour Mme Gonet, et merci. Nous avons seulement des modèles au crochet (ici) dans ce type de gilet, mais votre demande va être soumise à nos stylistes. Bon tricot!

Gonet Yvette 02.02.2016 - 08:13:

Bonjour madame, dans la partie dos de ce modèle quand les 21 tours de A1 ont été tricotés il faut décaler d'1 maille à gauche tous les 2 tours puis tous les 4 tours, je n'ai pas bien compris c'est le dessin qui se déplace d'une maille ? merci de votre aide. Yvette

DROPS Design 02.02.2016 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Gonet, à partir du 21ème tour faites commencer les tours après la 1ère m env dans le 1er A.1 - ainsi les mailles point mousse n'auront pas de démarcation. Progressivement, le milieu du tour va se décaler et à la fin de A.1, il sera au milieu du 1er motif. Bon tricot!

Loredana 29.01.2016 - 21:07:

Buonasera! Come si fa per capire quale taglia eseguire? Quale misura prendere? Grazie mille Loredana

DROPS Design 29.01.2016 kl. 22:26:

Buonasera Loredana, in basso, sotto le istruzioni, può trovare lo schema con le misure. Provi a misurare uno dei suoi maglioni che ha più o meno la stessa forma di questo per individuare la taglia corretta. Buon lavoro!

Thank you very much for your quiсk answer!

I started to knit this great jacket. I have some questionsregarding Diagram2. When we turn to diag. 2 - * Work A.2 over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of sts with marker on every round with star (= 16 sts per inc round)*. But at the photo of the back of jaket I see that there are increases 3 times in the first rows of the chart( please see the photo of the model) Are there mistake in the Chart 2?

DROPS Design 29.01.2016 kl. 12:04:

Dear Irina, pattern has been checkedd, the yo you can see before A.2 are the inc done before armhole, they shouldn't be worked twisted - pattern has been edited, and there should be only 2 inc in first size. Happy knitting!
