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.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to edge in rib):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 264 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 60) = 4.4. I.e. in this example inc after alternately approx. every 4th and 5th st (inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted to avoid holes).

Inc 1 st in transition between P/K. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round P YO twisted.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Place the 2 circular needles tog and cast on 134-148-160-166 sts over both circular needles with Alpaca Bouclé (this is done to avoid a tight cast-on edge). Pull out circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and continue on circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 as follows: Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 3-5-6-7 cm / 1½"-2"-2 1/4"-2 3/4", cast on 10 new sts at the end of the next two rows for sleeves = 154-168-180-186 sts. Continue in stockinette st with 5 edge st in garter st in each side. When piece measures 39-45-50-53 cm / 15 1/4"-17 3/4"-19 3/4"-21", bind off 10 sts at the beg of the next two rows = 134-148-160-166 sts. Continue in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side until piece measures 41-49-55-59 cm / 16"-19 1/4"-21½"-23 1/4". Work 1 ridge and LOOSELY bind off (it is important for the shape of the garment to avoid a tight bind-off edge).

Place cast-on edge against bind-off edge with WS against WS, sew side and underarm seams in one inside 1 edge st - see dotted line on chart.

Pick up from RS 264-292-316-328 sts along cast-on/bind-off edge on shoulder piece (i.e. pick up 1 st in every st) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Alpaca Bouclé. K 1 round while inc 60-68-68-68 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP-1 = 324-360-384-396 sts. Then work rib in the round = K 3/P 3. When rib measures 4 cm / 1½'', inc every other 3 P sts to 4 P sts = (see from RS) - READ INCREASE TIP-2 = 351-390-416-429 sts. When rib measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc the remaining 3 P sts to 4 P sts = 378-420-448-462 sts. When rib measures 15 cm / 6'', LOOSELY bind off with K over K and P over P - NOTE: Make 1 YO after approx. every 7th st while binding off (bind off YOs as sts) to make the bind-off edge more elastic (bind off YOs as sts).

Buongiorno! Vorrei sapere quanti centimetri si deve cucire per formare le maniche. Grazie!

DROPS Design 01.12.2018 kl. 17:22:

Buongiorno Giulia. Deve cucire le linee tratteggiate dello schema con le misure: quindi 6 cm per il sotto manica (che corrispondono alle 10 maglie avviate per le maniche) e i lati nella parte in basso del davanti / dietro per 3-5-6-7 cm (a seconda della taglia). Buon lavoro!

Klopt de onderste tekening wel?\r\ner wordt toch een rand gebreid aan zowel de bovenkant als de onderkant?

Hej Jag vill gärna sticka den här boleron men i bomull/merinoull-garn. Går det att använda Cotton-merino som inte tillhör grupp C?

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 13:16:

Hei Camilla. Så lenge strikkefastheten overholdes er det ikke noe i veien for å bruke et annet garn, også fra en annen garngruppe. Det går feks an å strikke med fler tråder om man vil bruke et mye tynnere garn enn anngitt i oppskriften. Nå skal det sies at Alpaca Boucle har en veldig annerledes tekstur enn Cotton Merino, så bare vær obs på at plagget da også kommer til å bli veldig annerledes. Vær også obs på at det går med mer garn av Cotton Merino enn Alpaca Boucle. God fornøyelse.
