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.
INCREASE TIP:
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches) and make 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes - work increased stitches in stocking stitch.

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Work jacket in the round from centre of motif (back), then back and forth in each side. Work sleeves separately and sew them in when finished.

Cast on 7 stitches with Alpaca and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work according to A.1 (= 7 repetitions of A.1 on round). Insert a marker thread at beginning of round. Work until round marked with arrow for desired size. There are now 273 stitches on needle. Make armholes as follows: Work the first 58 stitches on needle (= 1½ repetition), cast off the next 39-46-53 stitches, work the next 117-103-89 stitches, cast off the next 39-46-53 stitches, work the last 20 stitches. On next round cast on 39-46-53 new stitches over the cast off stitches = 273 stitches in all sizes. Finish A.1.

When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.1X above A.1. Every time A.1X is worked vertically, 6 stitches have been increased on each side of A.1X, work the new stitches as the outermost stitches in A.1X. Work A.1X 2-3-4 times in total vertically (84 stitches increase every time A.1X is worked) = 441-525-609 stitches.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Then work as follows: Slip the first 63-75-87 stitches on a stitch holder (= 1 repetition), keep the next 153-187-217 stitches on needle, slip the rest of stitches on a stitch holder. Now work back and forth over all stitches on needle. Work A.2 directly over leaves in A.1X and GARTER STITCH between leaves as before - see explanation above. At the end of every row slip the last 2 stitch on to stitch holder (do not work them, turn). Continue until 41-75-49 stitches remain on the needle (A.2 has now been worked 2-2-3 times vertically). Slip the last 41-75-49 stitches on stitch holder. 

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Slip the last 153-187-217 stitches on round back on needle, and work as left front piece over these stitches.

Then knit all stitches from stitch holders from right side back onto circular needle size 3 mm, pick up stitches between the 2 and 2 stitches that were put on holders in each side as follows: Pick up the strand between 2 stitches, twist the strand and place in on the right hand needle (i.e. between 2 and 2 stitches 1 stitch is increased and holes in transitions are avoided) = 553-637-777 stitches. Work 3 ridges over all stitches and loosely cast off.

SLEEVES:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles bottom up, switch to short circular needle when needed.
Cast on 46-50-56 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Alpaca. Work A.3 over all stitches. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue in stocking stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round = mid under sleeve. When piece measures 6-10-4 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase every 3-2-2 cm 15-21-25 times in total = 76-92-106 stitches. When sleeve measures approx. 55-56-56 cm, loosely cast off. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew in sleeves.

Ei saa aru, kuidas on võimalik alustada sukavarrastel 7silmusega või mõistan ma skeemi valesti?

DROPS Design 12.01.2018 kl. 13:00:

Tere MariP! Ringil on 7 mustrikordust, muster algab 1 silmusega = 7 silmust ringil. Head kudumist!

Hallo, ich stricke gerade das Rückenteil und bin etwas irritiert: nachdem ich bis zur Markierung meiner Größe gestrickt habe, arbeite ich die Armausschnitte und stricke gleichzeitig das Muster A.1 fertig? und wie stricke ich dann noch einmal 1X? Ich habe am Ende von A.1 doch schon mehr Maschen auf der Nadel als ich zu Beginn von 1X brauche...

DROPS Design 01.11.2017 kl. 11:47:

Liebe Johanna, die Maschen für die Armauschnitte werden auf eine Runde mit rechte Maschen (und 2 M re zs/Umschlag) abgekettet, bei der nächsten Runden, schlagen Sie die neue Maschen für die Armausschnitte, dann stricken Sie A.1 bis zur Ende. Dann A.1X stricken, aber in jeden der ersten 6 Runden werden Sie je 2 Maschen in jedem Rapport haben (wegen Umschläge mitte in dem Blatt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonsoir, Lorsque le travail en rond est terminé pour faire le devant gauche doit-on travailler en rangs raccourcis ou bien cela n'est pas nécessaire? Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 28.09.2017 kl. 10:25:

Bonjour Sylvie, quand on tricote le devant gauche on doit effectivement tricoter des rangs raccourcis: on laisse 2 m à la fin de chaque rang de chaque côté sans les tricoter jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 47-75-49 m sur l'aiguille. Bon tricot!

Benedetta 21.09.2017 - 16:12:

Scusate,mi sono spiegata male.ho finito il lavoro e devo attaccare le maniche ma non riesco a capire quale è la parte superiore e la parte inferiore del cardigan.Spero di essere stata un po più chiara! Grazie mille

DROPS Design 21.09.2017 kl. 16:23:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Se ha seguito lo stesso ordine delle istruzioni, la parte del davanti che ha lavorato per prima dovrebbe essere il davanti sinistro. Potrebbe anche aiutarla confrontare il dietro con la fotografia per la corretta posizione del motivo. Inoltre la parte più lunga, dagli scalfi al bordo, è la parte inferiore. Buon lavoro!

Benedetta 20.09.2017 - 23:05:

Buonasera,volevo sapere se la cucitura che si forma deve poi andare verso il collo o verso il basso? Grazie

DROPS Design 21.09.2017 kl. 14:40:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Molto probabilmente non ci è chiara la domanda. Riesce, per cortesia, a chiarirci a quale cucitura fa riferimento? Grazie. Buon lavoro!

Iris 09.09.2017 - 18:01:

Hallo! Das war mal eine richtige Herausforderung. Ich hab sie geschafft und die Jacke sieht schon ohne Ärmel klasse aus. Ich hab BabyMerino verwendet. In der gleichen Nadelstärke war das kein Problem.

Benedetta 04.09.2017 - 22:55:

Buonasera,non riesco a capire come "riprendere le maglie tra le 2 e 2maglie che sono state messe sul fermamaglie a ogni lato ". Esiste in video? Grazie mille per il Vs aiuto

DROPS Design 05.09.2017 kl. 08:34:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Le maglie sono state trasferite sul ferma maglie due per volta. Quando lavora le maglie dal ferma maglie, prima di ognuno di questi gruppi di 2 maglie, riprende il filo tra le maglie del giro precedente e lo mette ritorto sul ferro destro. Buon lavoro!

Benedetta 29.08.2017 - 22:40:

Buonasera,sono sul davanti del lavoro e ad ogni fine ferro ho lasciato 2 m in sospeso.Vorrei chiedervi se è giusto che ad un certo punto viene eliminata prima una foglia ed in seguito anche l'altra. Grazie anche x le vostre risposte precedenti!

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 23:40:

Buonasera Benedetta. Sì, le foglie si eliminano per via della riduzione del numero delle maglie. Buon lavoro!

Benedetta 28.08.2017 - 21:41:

Buonasera, non capisco il grafico A2 .ad esempio se io lavoro il giro 2 (rov del lavoro) la m centrale devo lavorarla a diritto ma sul diritto del lavoro risulterà a rovescio.Spero mi possiate aiutare! Grazie

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 21:59:

Buonasera Benedetta. I diagrammi mostrano il motivo sul diritto del lavoro. Quando lavora il diagramma A.2 la maglia centrale sui ferri pari viene lavorata a rovescio. Quindi risulta una maglia rasata. Buon lavoro!

Benedetta 25.08.2017 - 21:40:

Buonasera,sono al davanti sinistro e non capisco se devo trasferire le ultime 2 m sia sul diritto che sul rovescio del lavoro. Grazie mille!

DROPS Design 25.08.2017 kl. 22:02:

Buonasera Benedetta, le ultime 2 maglie su ogni ferro vanno messe in sospeso, su un fermamaglie o su un filo di scarto. Buon lavoro!
