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.
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 stockinette 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.

Work jacket in the round from middle 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 / US 2.5. 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), bind off the next 39-46-53 stitches, work the next 117-103-89 stitches, bind off the next 39-46-53 stitches, work the last 20 stitches. On next round cast on 39-46-53 new stitches over the bind 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.

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.

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 / US 2.5, 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 bind off.

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 / US 2.5 with Alpaca. Work A.3 over all stitches. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue in stockinette stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round = mid under sleeve. When piece measures 6-10-4 cm / 2½"-4"-1½"'', increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase every 3-2-2 cm / 1"-3/4"-3/4" 15-21-25 times in total = 76-92-106 stitches. When sleeve measures approx. 55-56-56 cm / 21½"-22"-22", loosely bind off. Make another sleeve the same way.

Sew in sleeves.

Bonjour Mme Delahaye, ce modèle se tricote en DROPS Alpaca, vous trouverez les fournitures nécessaire pour chaque taille sous l'en-tête. Pour trouver votre taille, comparez les mesures du schéma à celle d'un vêtement similaire dont vous aimez la taille - cf ici. Bon tricot!

Das ist ein wunderschönes Modell und ich habe gleich mit Stricken begonnen, als ich es in der Übersicht gefunden hatte. Jetzt habe ich den Kreis bis zu den Armauschnitten fertig und möchte mal wissen, ob es ungefähre Maßangaben dazu gibt, wieviel cm (also Kreisdurchmesser) es in etwa sein sollten. Ich habe zwar ein ähnliches Garn, stricke aber relativ fest.

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 08:34:

Liebe Frau Willing, dieses Modell wird mit einer Maschenprobe von 24 M x 48 Reihen kraus rechts = 10 x 10 cm gestrickt. Am besten immer die Maschenprobe zuerst stricken und die Nadelgröße anpassen, wenn es nötig ist. Für weitere Hilfte nehmen Sie bitte Kontakt mit dem Laden auf, wo Sie Ihr Garn gekauft haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hi. The pattern mentions a modification to A3. I have clicked on the link, nothing happens. Please can you tell me what the modification is. Thank you

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 08:10:

Dear Mrs Heaton, if you printed the pattern after 06th February, the online pattern includes correction, if you printed the pattern before please print diagram A.3 once again. Happy knitting!

Bettina 14.04.2018 - 20:09:

Bonjour, lorsqu'il faut tricoter A1X, doit-on reprendre le motif A1 (feuilles) sur les mailles montées pour les manches et donc conserver 7 fois le motifs A1 ? Ou doit-on supprimer le motif A1 (feuilles) sur celles-ci (on a alors 5 fois le motif A1) ? Dans ce cas ou place t-on les augmentations de 6 mailles pour obtenir 84 mailles d'augmentations a chaque répetitions ? Merci de me détailler A1X. Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 09:08:

Bonjour Bettina, on continue A.1x comme avant sur toutes les mailles, placez les motifs au-dessus des mailles montées pour les manches comme ils le sont tout en rond sur les autres motifs, vous devez toujours avoir le même nombre de mailles en largeur dans chaque A.1x et chaque rang du diagramme se tricote sur le même tour pour chacun des motifs du tour. Bon tricot!

Ska der mønster på de 58 m jeg ska strikke for sig selv

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 16:05:

De første 58 masker strikkes som den pind du er kommet til i diagrammet, luk de næste af og strik de næste som dem du er kommet til i diagrammet. Således gør du ved begge ærmegab. På næste omgang slår du de nye masker op og strikker de andre som den pind du er kommet til i diagrammet. Nu strikker du samme mønster som du har gjort hele tiden (inden du lukkede af) hele vejen rundt (også over de nye masker). :)

Yvonne 04.04.2018 - 15:08:

Hvis jeg ska samle det hele efter 11/2 rapport i højden, og mangler 1/2 passer det jo ikke med de andre rapporter da jo der ska starte på nye

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 16:01:

Er du begyndt at strikket over de nye masker du slog op?

Yvonne 04.04.2018 - 14:53:

Er det 11/2 rapport i højden eller i breden,for jeg kan ikke få maskerne til at passe

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 16:00:

Hej Yvonne, det er i bredden :)

Yvonne 04.04.2018 - 12:56:

Efter der er taget ind og slået nye masker op,ska det hele så strikkes sammen og den halve A1 gøres færdig Til ærmegab

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 14:09:

Hej Yvonne, ja nu strikker du samme mønster over de nye masker, du lige har slået op, som du har gjort hele tiden. Men nu har du et hul imellem de masker du lukkede af og de nye masker som bliver dit ærmegab. God fornøjelse!

Yvonne 04.04.2018 - 12:36:

Hej igen Ska det forstås at der ska strikkes 11/2 rapport før man lukker masker af og samler op,eller har jeg misforstået det

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 14:10:

Hej Yvonne, bare følg opskriften: Lav ærmegab således: Strik de første 58 masker på pinden (= 1½ rapport), luk de næste 39-46-53 masker af, strik de næste 117-103-89 masker, luk de næste 39-46-53 masker af, strik de sidste 20 masker :)

Yvonne 02.04.2018 - 16:49:

Hej Jeg kan ikke finde ud af a starte på mønster A1 til str xxxl har slået de 7 op og så går jeg i stå?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 11:53:

Hei Yvonne. Dette mønsteret strikkes som en sirkel med startpunkt midt i blomsten, A1 viser en m nederst på første omg i diagrammet, gjenta denne 7 ganger = 7 rapporter. Altså når du legger opp 7 m er det starten på de 7 rapportene - følg diagrammet oppover og øk som vist. God fornøyelse.
