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

VEST:
Piece is worked in the round on circular needle up to armhole, then finish front and back piece back and forth on circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 128-140-148-156-168-176 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Cotton Merino. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and K 1 round. Insert 1 marker in first st on round and 1 marker in 65th-71st-75th-79th-85th-89th st on round (= in the sides – there are now 63-69-73-77-83-87 sts between sts with markers). Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 (markers are in a P st in pattern). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 20-22-25-28-31-34 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9 3/4"-11"-12 1/4"-13½", work 2 ridges in garter st over the middle 13 sts in each side (i.e. over st with marker + 6 sts on each side of this – work the other sts as before). On first round after ridges, bind off the middle 7 sts in each side for armhole and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 57-63-67-71-77-81 sts. Continue with pattern back and forth with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side (1st row = WS). When 3 rows have been worked back and forth, dec on next row from RS for armhole in each side - READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 sts dec). Dec like this every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS), 4 times in total = 49-55-59-63-69-73 sts. Continue pattern with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 31-34-38-42-46-50 cm / 12 1/4"-13½"-15"-16½"-18"-19 3/4". Now bind off the middle 25-27-29-31-33-37 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 11-13-14-15-17-17 sts remain on the shoulder. Work until 2 rows remain before piece measures 33-36-40-44-48-52 cm / 13"-14 1/4"-15 3/4"-17 1/4"-19"-20½", adjust so that next row is worked from RS. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS and then bind off with K from RS. Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
= 57-63-67-71-77-81 sts. Work as back piece and bind off for armhole in the sides as on back piece = 49-55-59-63-69-73 sts. When piece measures 28-31-34-38-41-45 cm / 11"-12 1/4"-13½"-15"-16"-17 3/4", slip the middle 15-17-17-17-17-19 sts on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off for neck at beg of every row from neck as follows: bind off 2 sts 2-2-2-2-3-3 times and 1 st 2-2-3-4-3-4 times = 11-13-14-15-17-17 sts remain on shoulder. Work until 2 row remains before piece measures 33-36-40-44-48-52 cm / "-14 1/4"-15 3/4"-17 1/4"-19"-20½" - adjust according to back piece. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS and then bind off with K from RS. Repeat on the other shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside bind-off edge.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from RS approx. 66-70-78-82-88-94 sts around the neck (includes sts on stitch holder at the front) on a short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Then loosely bind off with K.

Moin, jeg har nu prøvet at lave en strikkeprøve efter diagram A1. Min strikkeprøve har ikke en vrang linie på forsiden,som på billede nr 2, men to vranglinier på bagsiden. Hvor ligger problemet ? mvh Mie

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 10:31:

Hej Mie, hvis du strikker første pind fra retsiden, så bliver det ret, vrang, ret, vrang, næste pind strikker du også ret over ret og vrang over vrang. 3.pind strikker du ret fra retsiden. 4.pind strikker du ret fra vrangen. Det vil sige at hver 4. pind bliver en vrangpind set fra retsiden. God fornøjelse!

Osorio Chantal 14.05.2018 - 23:56:

Je ne comprends pas pourquoi les mesures sont différentes sur le patron et dans l\'explication: on dit de commencer les emmanchures à 20 cm de hauteur totale sur l\'explication, mais sur le croquis, la première mesure indique 33; qu\'est-ce que cela signifie? Merci de la réponse. CO

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 09:54:

Bonjour Mme Osorio, les 33 cm indiqués à gauche du schéma correspondent à la hauteur totale dans la 1ère taille, et l'emmanchure sera donc de 12 cm, soit 21 cm avant la division de l'ouvrage aux emmanchures. Vous trouverez plus d'infos sur les tailles ici. Bon tricot!

Haluaisin neuloa pienelle koulupojalle siistin, melko ohuen raglanvillapaidan tai -jakun jollain kivalla kohoneuleella (ei palmikkoa). Kehittäkääs sellainen ohje ja muutenkin lisää kauniita ohjeita pojille (tai sekä-että).

Maria 29.03.2018 - 11:23:

Mi sembra che il punto fantasia non mi venga come nella foto. Forse sbaglio perchè interpreto male il diagramma, Lavorando in tondo, non capisco quando devo lavorare a diritto o a rovescio. Potere aiutarmi? Grazie

DROPS Design 29.03.2018 kl. 12:43:

Buongiorno Maria. Lavorando in tondo, lavora il quadratino bianco a diritto e quello nero a rovescio. Buon lavoro!

Birgit Severinsen 01.01.2018 - 12:52:

Jeg er endnu ikke startet på vesten, men jeg undrer mig over at der ikke er anvisninger på, hvad man gør, når ærmegabet er lavet, skal der ikke være en ribkant eller noget der ligner halskanten? PÅ billedet ser det heller ikke ud som en rillekant, som der står beskrevet. Kan det passe?

DROPS Design 10.01.2018 kl. 09:13:

Hei Birgit. Det strikkes 3 masker i riller (DK: 3 kantm retstrik i hver side) i hver side av ermehullet. Det vises på bildet, men prøv å forstørre bildet slik at du ser det bedre. God Fornøyelse!

Maria 01.11.2017 - 19:53:

I oppskriften, etter felling til armhule, står det "Når det er strikket 3 p frem og tilbake felles det på neste p fra retten til ermhull i hver side". Menes det 3 pinner totalt, eller 6 pinner totalt?

DROPS Design 03.11.2017 kl. 07:20:

Hei Maria. Det menes 3 pinner totalt (1.p frem, 2.p tilbake og 3.p frem). Nå starter fellingen til ermhull (fra retten). God Fornøyelse!

Witam, Doznałam olśnienia, już wszystko rozumiem. Przepraszam za fałszywy alarm :) Pozdrawiam, Basia

Barbara 26.02.2017 - 16:58:

Witam, Mam problem przy zamykaniu oczek na podkroje rękawów. Intuicja podpowiada mi żeby poprostu zamknąć tych siedem oczek pod każdą pachą przekładając przedostatnie oczko przerobione na prawo nad ostatnim i tak cały podkrój. Nie do końca rozumiem zdjemowanie oczka na początku, a potem na końcu przerabianie dwóch oczek razem na prawo. Proszę o pomoc i z góry dziękuję :) Pozdrawiam, Barbara

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 17:42:

Witaj Barbaro! Ja zamykam oczka następująco: przerabiam 2 o. razem na prawo, przekładam powstałe w ten sposób oczko z powrotem z prawego na lewy drut, znów przerabiam 2 o. razem na prawo, przekładam oczko na lewy drut itd., aż zamniętych zostanie 7 o. POWODZENIA!

Ich finde, dass Muster und Anleitung nach kurzem Überlegen und Nachrechnen verständlich und ok sind, Habe den Pulli ziemlich schnell (in Jeans-Farbe) gestrickt und er steht meinem 3-jährigen Sohn sehr gut. Vielen Dank!

Maria Steffensen 16.12.2016 - 09:27:

Hej Skøn vest. Men jeg havde problemer med størrelsen æv. Strikkede den til et barnebarn på 3 år i den største del af opskriften. Han kan dog ikke få den over hovedet og efter at jeg har sat knapper i på skulderen er den også for lille i ærmegabene og længden...

DROPS Design 19.12.2016 kl. 14:49:

Hej Maria. Stemmer maalene overens med dem som staar nederst i maalskitsen? Og stemmer din strikkefasthed? Det er en god ide at tjekke at maalene i skitsen passer til modtageren, du kan evt maale efter en tröje som han passer og saa vaelge str derfra. Og med den rette strikkefasthed er du sikker paa at maalene kommer til at stemme :)
