Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 75 sts), minus edge sts (e.g. 12 sts) and divide the remaining sts by no of dec to be done (e.g. 13) = 4.8. I.e. in this example work approx. every 4th and 5th st tog (and do not dec of edge sts).

BUTTONHOLES:
Cast off for 2 buttonholes in each side on front piece. 1 buttonhole = cast off third and fourth st from edge and cast on 2 new sts on next row over these sts.
Cast off for buttonholes when piece measures 16 and 26 cm in all sizes (or desired length).
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts and sewn tog on the shoulder.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 75-81-87-93-99-105 sts (incl 6 edge st in each side) on circular needle size 7 mm with 1 thread Cloud or 2 threads Air. P 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows from RS: 6 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - * P 3, K 3 *, repeat from *-* until 9 sts remain on needle and finish with P 3 and 6 edge sts in garter st. Continue rib like this until piece measures 21 cm. On next row from RS, dec 13-15-17-17-17-15 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP = 62-66-70-76-82-90 sts. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and work in stocking st with 6 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm, slip the outermost sts at beg of every row in each side on 1 stitch holder for diagonal shoulder as follows (NOTE: To avoid cutting the yarn being used, work the sts before slipping them on the stitch holder): Slip 7-8-8-9-10-11 sts 2-3-2-2-3-2 times in total and 8-0-9-10-0-12 sts 1-0-1-1-0-1 time on stitch holder in each side.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 65-67-69-71-73-75 cm, cast off the middle 16-16-18-18-20-20 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Cast off 1 st on next row from neck. When all sts have been dec/put on a stitch holder, there are 22-24-25-28-30-34 sts on stitch holder for shoulder and back piece measures approx. 67-69-71-73-75-77 cm from the top of shoulder and down. Slip sts from stitch holder on circular needle size 7 mm. K 1 row from WS (to avoid holes in transitions where sts were slipped on stitch holder put loop between 2 sts on needle and K twisted tog with next st on needle). Then LOOSELY cast off with K from RS. Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on on circular needle size 7 mm and work as back piece, but when rib measures 14 cm, dec evenly as on back piece (front piece is 7 cm shorter than back piece). Switch to circular needle size 8 mm and work as back piece but when piece measures 16 and 26 cm, dec for BUTTONHOLE in each side - see explanation above! Continue to work until piece measures 53-55-57-58-60-62 cm. Now slip the middle 10-10-12-12-14-14 sts on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off for neck at beg of every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm, slip sts on a stitch holder for diagonal shoulder as on back piece. When all sts have been put on a stitch holder/cast off, there are 22-24-25-28-30-34 sts on stitch holder for shoulder and front piece measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the top of shoulder and down. Slip sts from stitch holder on circular needle size 7 mm and K 1 row from WS as on back piece before casting off with K from RS. Repeat on the other shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside cast-off edge - make sure the seam is not tight. Place edge in garter st with buttonholes (front piece) in one side of piece over edge in garter st on back piece and sew on buttons. Repeat in the other side.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from RS approx. 46 to 58 around the neck (incl sts on stitch holder at the front) on a short circular needle size 7 mm with Cloud. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round before LOOSELY casting off with K.

Waarom worden op de schouders de steken op een hulpnaald gezet, je kan ze toch gewoon vervolgens afzetten,ik snap niet goed waarom?

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 21:54:

Dag Cecile,

Aan het eind zet je alle steken van de schouder weer de pen en brei je nog één naald, waarna je de steken afkant. Vandaar dat ze op een hulpdraad worden gezet en niet meteen worden afgekant.

VIENNE 05.09.2018 - 21:27:

Bonjour, Je souhaite des précisions sur la partie devant. A 53 cm j'ai mis les 10 mailles centrales sur un arrêt de mailles. Sur une épaule j'ai rabattue 1 fois 2m puis 1 fois 1 maille. Il est indiqué qu'en même temps à 56cm, il faut glisser les mailles en attente sur un arrêt de maille. De quelles mailles s'agit il? Avec quelles mailles dois-je tricoter jusqu'à 60cm? Merci pour votre aide. Cordialement

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:04:

Bonjour Mme Vienne, à 60 cm du devant, vous glissez les mailles des épaules pour former le biais comme vous avez fait pour le dos à 56 cm: 2 x 7 m et 1 x 8 m en attente côté épaule. Bon tricot!

Lena 13.06.2018 - 19:13:

Hej I beskrivningen står att västen ska stickas i Cloud 1 tråd eller Air 2 trådar. Jag stickar västen i Air betyder det att jag ska sticka med dubbelt garn?

DROPS Design 14.06.2018 kl. 10:11:

Hej Lena, Ja det stämmer, du skall sticka den med dubbelt garn DROPS Air :)

VIENNE 01.05.2018 - 21:42:

Bonjour, Dans les explications pour le dos, il est indiqué: mettre en attente 2* 7 mailles et une fois 8 mailles. Soit un total de 22 mailles. Pourquoi indiquez vous 2*7 et 1*8 et non 22 mailles. Est ce que je peux simplement glisser 22 mailles en attente ? Merci pour votre aide Cordialement E.

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 10:41:

Bonjour Mme Vienne, on va glisser ces mailles en attente au début de chaque rang (après les avoir tricoté) pour former le biais des épaules ainsi: *tricotez 8 m, glissez-les en attente, terminez le rang, tricotez les 8 premières m, glissez-les en attente, terminez le rang*, répétez encore 1 fois de *-* (= 2 fois 8 m en attente de chaque côté) puis mettez en attente les 7 premières m au début des 2 rangs suivants. = vous avez 21 m en attente de chaque côté - pensez bien à rabattre pour l'encolure en même temps à 65 cm. Bon tricot!

Vind dit model niet terug in nederlandse beschrijving

Hallo Ann, Het nederlandse patroon kun je hier vinden.

Donatella 30.01.2017 - 09:09:

Mi spiegate come faccio a capire che taglia devo seguire per esempio la XL a che taglia corrisponde Grazie

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 09:41:

Buongiorno Donatella. Alla fine delle spiegazioni, trova un grafico con le misure espresse in cm. Confrontando queste misure con un indumento di cui è soddisfatta dovrebbe essere in grado di capire quale taglia seguire. Buon lavoro!

Johanneke 28.12.2016 - 20:07:

Heel leuk en praktisch kledingstuk. Redelijk eenvoudig en snel te maken. Alleen had ik bij maat m 2,5 bol garen over.

Mona Hansen 26.12.2016 - 17:47:

Hej. Hvad gør jeg forkert? Jeg strikker str L . Dvs jeg har 70 m på tråden når jeg skal tage ind til skulder og hals. Jeg skal sætte 8 m på tråd i hver side 2 gange og 9 m 1 gang samtidig med at jeg skal lukke 18 m af til hals 1 gang + 1*2 . Så har jeg ( 8*2*2 +(2*9) + 18 + 2 =70) Nu har jeg brugt alle mine masker, men ryggen mangler stadig flere cm i at måle 71 cm

DROPS Design 06.04.2017 kl. 10:33:

Hej, du sætter de første 8 m på tråden når arb måler 67 cm og når du har strikket 3 pinde måler arb 69 cm, så nu kan du lukke de midterste masker af til hals. Når du på de sidste pinde har sat alle m på tråden, så skal arb måle 71 cm ifølge strikkefastheden. God fornøjelse!

Kirsten Hesselø 11.10.2016 - 21:42:

Jeg er netop begyndt, skal til at tage masker ind på ret siden efter at være færdig med rib. Skal indtagningen ske på en pind med retstrik el i rib-strik?

DROPS Design 12.10.2016 kl. 12:31:

Hej Kirsten. Jeg ville strikke r og tage ind (du fortsaetter bagefter i glatstrik).

Yo Maessen 07.10.2016 - 10:33:

Waarom rondbreinaalden gebruiken? De vest is toch open aan de zijkanten?

DROPS Design 07.10.2016 kl. 13:00:

Hoi Yo. Rondbreinaalden worden vaker gebruikt in Scandinavië - en je kan veel meer steken kwijt op een rondbreinaald dan een rechte naald. Maar je mag natuurlijk een rechte naald gebruiken als je dat wilt ;-)
