Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

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

SHORT ROWS IN GARTER ST - WITH YOS:
When turning and making a YO avoid holes in piece.
Short rows in garter st: Work no of sts described in pattern, slip 1 st as if to P, place strand on the front of piece, move the slipped st back on left needle. Turn piece. On next row when getting to the slipped st, work st and strand around it (YO) tog as one st and work the rest of row.

INCREASE TIP:
When picking up more sts than there are ridges (e.g. when picking up 140 sts evenly over the next 132 ridges), pick up 1 st in every ridge and make the remaining sts with 1 YO distributed evenly between sts. I.e. in this example pick up 132 sts in the 132 ridges and make YOs 8 times evenly = 140 sts. Work YO twisted on next row.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE:
Work first the outer circle, then pick up sts on the shortest curve on this and work circles in the middle.

OUTER CIRCLE:
Work piece back and forth in GARTER ST - see explanation above, until finished measurements. Cast on 70-72-74-76-78-80 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Delight.

PART 1:
Work 7-7-7-7-8-8 ridges (= 14-14-14-14-16-16 rows). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE On next row from RS work short rows as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K the first 60-66-66-66-66-66 – READ SHORT ROWS IN GARTER ST – WITH YOS, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts, turn piece.
Row 3: K the first 54-60-60-60-60-60, turn.
Row 4: K all sts, turn piece.
Row 5: K the first 48-54-54-54-54-54, turn.
Row 6: Turn and K all sts, turn piece.

Continue to work short rows in garter st like this. I.e. work 6 sts less on every row from RS until 1 ridge has been worked (= 2 rows) over the last 6 sts (= 10-11-11-11-11-11 ridges, 17-18-18-18-19-19 ridges have been worked in total on the widest). Last row is from WS. Then work short rows as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K the first 8 sts, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts, turn piece.
Row 3: K the first 14 sts, turn piece.
Row 4: K all sts, turn piece.
Row 5: K the first 20 sts, turn piece.
Row 6: Turn and K all sts, turn piece.
Continue to work short rows in garter st like this. I.e. work 6 sts more on every row from RS until 2-4-6-8-10-6 sts remain on row (= 11-11-11-11-11-12 ridges). Last row is from WS. Work 7-7-8-8-8-8 ridges over all sts.

14-14-15-15-16-16 ridges have been worked on the shortest and 35-36-37-37-38-39 ridges have been worked on the widest. Piece measures approx. 7-7-7-7-8-8 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3" on the shortest and approx. 17-18-18-18-19-19 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7"-7"-7½"-7½" on the widest.

Work 20-20-20-21-21-21 parts in total. Piece measures approx. 137-137-146-154-164-164 cm / 54"-54"-57½"-60½"-64½"-64½" on the shortest and approx. 341-351-361-379-389-400 cm / 134"-138"-142"-149"-153"-157½" on the widest. Bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew bind-off edge tog with cast-on edge, in outer loop of edge sts.

CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE:
Work piece in the round on circular needle (switch to double pointed needles when needed) from the shortest side on the outer circle and in towards middle. Pick up from RS on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 as follows: Adjust so that seam is mid back.

Pick up 1 st in each of the first 35-37-40-41-43-45 ridges (i.e. over the next 70-74-80-82-86-90 rows), cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (for armhole), skip the next 35-37-39-41-43-45 ridges (= 70-74-78-82-86-90 rows in total), pick up 134-140-144-150-154-158 sts evenly over the next 140-132-142-151-164-156 ridges (= 280-264-284-302-328-312 rows in total) – READ INCREASE TIP, cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (for armhole), skip the next 35-37-39-41-43-45 ridges (= 70-74-78-82-86-90 rows in total), pick up 1 st in each of the first 35-37-40-41-43-45 ridges (i.e. over the next 70-74-80-82-86-90 rows) = 276-290-304-316-328-340 sts.

Now work in the round in GARTER ST - see explanation above, until finished measurements. P 1 round, insert 5 markers and dec evenly as follows: Dec 0-2-4-4-4-4 sts evenly on entire round and work as follows: * P 46-48-50-52-54-56, insert 1 marker *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, P the last 46-48-50-52-54-56 sts = 276-288-300-312-324-336 sts.

On next round, dec as follows: K 1, K the next 2 tog (= 1 st dec), * work until 3 sts remain before next marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), K 2 (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts), K 2 tog (= 1 st dec) *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, work until 3 sts remain, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), K 1 (= 12 sts dec in total).

Dec like this every 4th round until 24 sts remain. Work all sts tog 2 by 2 = 12 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Circle in the middle measures approx. 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm / 16½''-17¼''-18''-19''-19¾''-20½'' in diameter.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round from bottom up.
Cast on 46-48-50-52-56-58 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Delight. Work in garter st for 3 cm / 1''. Then work in stockinette st but assemble sleeves with WS outwards. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 6-10-6-10-10-8 cm / 2 1/4"-4"-2 1/4"-4"-4"-3", inc 1 st on each side of marker. Inc like this every 3-2½-2½-2-2-2 cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4" 16-17-19-20-20-22 times in total = 78-82-88-92-96-102 sts. Bind off when sleeve measures 53 cm / 21'' in total. Make another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Turn the sleeves and fasten them with WS outwards.

Bonjour, je tricote très serré donc j'ai déjà l'habitude de réaliser les modèles avec les informations de taille M alors que je fais du S (1,53m, 46kg). Est-il possible de réaliser ce modèle avec la laine Big Delight plutôt que Delight ?

DROPS Design 08.03.2017 kl. 13:37:

Bonjour Magali, ce modèle a été écrit pour un fil du groupe A (Delight), alors que Big Delight appartient au groupe C, la tension sera donc totalement différente et il vous faudra ajuster le modèle en fonction de votre échantillon. Bon tricot!

ABADIE Dominique 01.02.2017 - 11:53:

Bonjour Je suis entrain de tricoter une veste (modèle n0 157). Pour moi les explications ne sont pas assez claires. Pouvez vous me faire parvenir des explications plus détaillées avec dessins à l'appui si possible Merci

DROPS Design 01.02.2017 kl. 12:02:

Bonjour Mme Abadie, pour toute assistance personnelle pour réaliser ce modèle, nous vous invitons à contacter votre magasin DROPS ou le Forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Griet Ascoop 30.01.2017 - 13:03:

Goeiedag, ik ben dit vest aan het breien, en het wordt zeker prachtig, dat kan ik al zien. Ik heb de rug dichtgebreid in decrondteczoals voorgeschreven, maar dan is de rug bij mij niet vlak. Hij wobbelt en eindigt op een soort mutsachtige welving. Ik heb de rug nu weer uitgehaald, en zal sneller moeten minderen denk ik. Kunt u me adviseren hoe ik dat best aanpak ? Danku.

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 15:54:

Hoi Griet. Ik vind het een beetje moeilijk in te schatten wat er fout is gebeurd. Ik zou kijken of de stekenverhouding klopt in de hoogte/breedte en of je fouten hebt gemaakt bij de verkorte toeren. Om het werk minder breed te maken kan je de verkorte toeren over meer st maken.

PASCAL 26.01.2017 - 15:36:

Bonjour, Je suis entrain de tricoter ce modèle avec la laine recommandée; PB elle se tricote en 2,5mm et non 4 comme sur les explications (= une vraie passoire), j'ai donc doublé la laine delight, mais le résultat rendu par rapport aux rayures n'est bien évidemment pas celui espéré. Dommage, je me dois donc d'acheter des pelotes supplémentaires et à nouveau des frais de port.... Pourquoi cela. Habituée et fidèle cliente à vos ouvrages, je ne comprends plus.

DROPS Design 26.01.2017 kl. 15:55:

Bonjour Pascal, ce modèle se tricote volontairement avec des aiguilles plus grosses pour avoir un échantillon de 21 x 45 rangs = 10 x 10 cm au point mousse. La quantité indiquée correspond à celle utilisée sur la base de cette tension. Bon tricot!

Sabine 17.01.2017 - 23:36:

Hallo, der erste Mustersatz endet ja mit 14Reihen Kraus rechts. Beginnt der nächste dann wie der erste auch mit 14Reihen Kraus rechts oder gleich mit den verkürzten Reihen. Oder anders ausgedrückt: sind zwischen den verkürzten Reihen also 28Reihen Kraus ??? Danke für eine schnelle Antwort

DROPS Design 18.01.2017 kl. 09:44:

Liebe Sabine, Sie stricken zuerst 14 Reihen Kraus rechts über alle 70-72-74-76 Maschen (siehe Größe), dann beginnen die verkürzten Reihen: 2 R über die ersten 60-66 M (siehe Größe), 2 R über die ersten 54-60 M, 2 R über die ersten 48-54 M, usw, dh immer 6 M weniger bei der Hinreihe stricken bis Sie 2 R über die 6 letzten M gestrickt haben), dann haben Sie insg 17-18 Krausrippen an der breitesten Stelle gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hej igen... jeg har fundet ud af, at de første 7 riller skal strikkes hver gang. Så skulle det passe. Hvert "stykke" består af 37 riller, og det skulle give de 361 cm på den bredeste kant. Så sådan vil jeg prøve at strikke det.

DROPS Design 30.11.2016 kl. 14:43:

Hej Lisa. Ja, du har ret - skulle lige laese igennem et par gange. Tak for meldingen (du var mere vaagen end mig der :))

Lisa Lebrija 23.11.2016 - 21:09:

Hej, jeg har nu strikket stykket 20 gange, og har kun 266 cm på det bredeste og 155 på det korteste!! Hvad er gået galt? Jeg strikker str. L. Skulle jeg have strikket de 7 første riller med, så der mellem de forkortede riller bliver 15 fulde riller?

DROPS Design 24.11.2016 kl. 15:38:

Hej Lisa. Nej, de förste 7 riller strikker du kun 1 gang. Har du strikket for lidt vendinger eller har du for mange riller per 10 cm (41 riller per 10 cm)? Stemmer din strikkefasthed ikke, saa har det indflydelse paa dine maal.

Nathalie 27.10.2016 - 09:24:

I wanted to say that i am delighted by the pattern and the wool. I chose to follow the suggested color as i loved it on the picture of the garment. It is gorgeous, much nicer that how it is shown in the color range of the wool delight. Thanks for your help, you have an amazing team.

Nathalie 25.10.2016 - 22:25:

Started to knit, did part 1 until row 6. I have 7 ridges on the short side and 10 on the long side. Then I should keep doing short rows. Do you mean I should do short rows after 48-42-36-30-24-18-12-6 stitches?each time on the RS? This would leave me with 7 ridges on the short side and 18 on the long one and not 11 and 18. Please tell me what I got wrong. Thanks. Nathalie

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 09:15:

Dear Nathalie, in 2nd size you work short rows over the first 66 sts then 60, 54, 48, 42, 36, 30, 24, 18, 12 and 6 sts = a total of 11 ridges + the 7 ridges over all sts = a total of 18 ridges have been worked. Happy knitting!

Gail 27.09.2016 - 02:33:

Where can I find finished dimension, I am unsure of what size to make. I just ordered the yarn, but don't know if I should make large or X large. Love love love this design!

DROPS Design 27.09.2016 kl. 09:52:

Dear Gail, you can compare the measurements in chart at the bottom of the pattern with a similar garment you have and like the shape (= width between armholes at the top and at the bottom, etc...). Happy knitting!
