PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

KNITTING TIP:
If the lace pattern is done before correct measurements work stocking stitch with A.1 in each side as before to get the correct measurements.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Begin 1 stitch before marker, make 1 yarn-over, knit 2, 1 yarn-over. On next round knit yarn-over twisted to avoid holes. Work the increased stitches in the pattern.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front to mid back in 2 parts. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

RIGHT FRONT AND BACK PIECE:
Cast on 200-200-219-219-238-238 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Paris. Work first row as follows from right side: A.1 (= 5 stitches), A.2A (= 9 stitches), A.2B over the next 171-171-190-190-209-209 stitches (= 9-9-10-10-11-11 repetitions of 19 stitches), A.2C (= 10 stitches) and A.1 (= 5 stitches). Continue pattern like this. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 180-180-197-197-214-214 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from the right side: Continue A.1 as before, work A.3A (= 8 stitches), A.3B over the next 153-153-170-170-187-187 stitches (= 9-9-10-10-11-11 repetitions of 17 stitches), A.3C (= 9 stitches) and finish with A.1 as before. Continue pattern like this. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 131-131-143-143-155-155 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from the right side: Continue A.1 as before, work A.4A (= 6 stitches), A.4B over the next 108-108-120-120-132-132 stitches (= 9-9-10-10-11-11 repetitions of 12 stitches), A.4C (= 7 stitches) and finish with A.1 as before. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
When A.4 has been worked, piece measures approx. 31 cm measured from the cast on edge (measure from the middle of the wave pattern). Then work in stocking stitch with A.1 over the 5 outermost stitches in each side as before.
When piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm, cast off for armhole as follows from right side: Work the first 38 stitches, cast off the next 29-31-33-35-35-37 stitches and work as before over the last 64-62-72-70-82-80 stitches. On next row cast on 29-31-33-35-35-37 stitches over the cast off stitches and continue in stocking stitch and A.1 in each side as before
When piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm (i.e. 2-3-4-5-6-7 cm from armhole), work next row as follows from right side: Continue A.1 as before, work A.5A (= 6 stitches), A.5B over the next 108-108-120-120-132-132 stitches (= 9-9-10-10-11-11 repetitions of 12 stitches), A.5C (= 7 stitches) and finish with A.1 as before. Continue pattern like this. When A.5 has been worked, piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm measured from the cast on edge (measure from the middle of the wave pattern). - READ KNITTING TIP. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Knit 1 row from wrong side, knit 1 row from right side and knit 1 row from wrong side. Then cast off by knitting from right side - cast-off edge = make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge.

LEFT FRONT AND BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work as on right front and back piece until piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm. Now cast off for armhole as follows from right side: Work the first 64-62-72-70-82-80 stitches, cast off the next 29-31-33-35-35-37 stitches and work as before over the last 38 stitches. On next row cast on 29-31-33-35-35-37 stitches over the cast off stitches and continue the same way as on right front and back piece.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 37-37-39-41-43-45 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work A.6A until 1 stitch remain on round, work A.6B (= 1 stitch). When A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round and move the marker upwards when working. Work next round as follows: 0-0-1-2-3-4 stitches in stocking stitch, A.4A (= 6 stitches), A.4B over the next 24 stitches, A.4C (= 7 stitches) and 0-0-1-2-3-4 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue pattern like this. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8-6-8-6-6-8 cm, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3-3-2½-2½-2½-2 cm 10-11-12-13-13-14 times in total = 57-59-63-67-69-73 stitches. When A.4 has been worked, work in stocking stitch over all stitches until piece measures 38 cm in all sizes. On next round cast off the middle 6 stitches mid under sleeve and finish sleeve cap back and forth on circular needle. Work in stocking stitch and cast off the first 4 stitches at beginning of every row 4 times in total in each side = 19-21-25-29-31-35 stitches remain on needle. Cast off the remaining stitches, piece measures approx. 42 cm in all sizes. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Graft/sew the 2 parts together mid back inside cast-off edge. Sew in sleeves.

Ich bin am Verzweifeln. Nach mehreren Versuchen komme ich nach A 3 nicht auf 143, sondern 147 Maschen. Ich finde meinen Fehler nicht. Was ist jeweils die erste und die letzte Masche des Rapport A 3B? Bin unsicher wegen der Umschläge.

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 09:29:

Liebe Frau Topke, es wird zuerst 1 M in A.3A, 2 M in jedem A.3.B und 1 M in A.3C abgenommen (= insgesamt 22 M abgenommen). Dann wird es 1 M in A.3A, 3 M in jedem A.3B und 1 M in A.3C abgenommen (= insgesamt 32 M abgenommen), es waren 197 M - 54 Abnahme = 143 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doris 05.04.2018 - 19:19:

Hallo! Stricke ich die Umschläge bei Vorder- und Rückenteil verschränkt (ohne Löcher) oder so, dass es Löcher gibt? Es steht nur bei den AERMELN, dass man Löcher vermeiden soll.

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 08:34:

Liebe Doris, die Umschläge bei Vorder- und Rückenteil werden wie im Diagram gestrickt, dh es soll Löcher enstehen, nur bei den Aufnahmen für die Ärmel werden die Umschläge verschränkt gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doris Doshi 28.03.2018 - 12:58:

Ich verstehe nicht, weshalb ich hier RUNDNADELN benötige, wenn steht, dass ich in Hin- und Rückreihen stricken muss? Zudem ist das Stück ja nicht in einem Schlauch gestrickt? Wo mache ich den Überlegungsfehler?

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 13:37:

Liebe Doris, wir geben in der Regel die Verwendung von Rundnadeln an, auch wenn in Hin- und Rück-Reihen gestrickt wird, da es bequemer ist, mit einer großen Maschenzahl wie in dieser Anleitung auf einer Rundnadel statt mit Paarnadeln zu stricken. Die Maschen und auch das Gewicht des Strickstücks verteilen sich auf dem Seil der Rundnadel besser. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Angela 27.06.2017 - 13:55:

Hi, I'm having trouble with this once I get to row 20 of the pattern as a hole (row 14 of pattern A3), Row 19 I have 160 sts, Row 20-22 I would have 176 sts,Row 23 147 sts, Row 24 171 sts. It says I should be ending this row with 131 sts according to the directions. How is this possible when A3B shows P 17 repeated 9 times. This would be 153 stitches and that doesn't include A3A, A3C or the A1 in the ends. I'm obviously missing something... can you please help? Thanks!

DROPS Design 28.06.2017 kl. 10:09:

Dear Angela, you will dec first 1 st in A.3A, then 2 sts in each A.3B and 1 st in A.3C, then dec 1 st in A.3A, 3 sts in each A.3B and 1 st in A.3C = remaining: 6 sts in A.3A, 12 sts in A.3B and 7 sts in A.3C, so that you have 6+12x9 + 7 + (2 x 5 sts = A.1 on each side ) = 131 sts. Happy knitting!

Janny 15.05.2017 - 17:06:

Hallo, als je 5st. a1-5st.a3-10x14st.b3=140st.-6st.3c-5st.a1 doet heb je 161 st. over ipv. 143st. ik heb nu 5st.a1-5st.recht en 1 mindering A3- 2x1mindering, 9 recht,1mindering en dit 10x in 3b-1mindering ,6recht in 3c-5st a1. is 143 st. Nu loopt het volgende patroon mooi door boven het golven patroon.

Janny 04.05.2017 - 11:18:

Ik ben dit mooie patronen aan het breien maar kom niet uit met naald 17 van patroon 3. Het patroon loopt niet recht boven elkaar en het aantal steken klopt ook niet.

DROPS Design 12.05.2017 kl. 19:48:

Hally Janny, In telpatroon A.3 brei je eerst A.3A (waar 1 mindering in zit), dan, afhankelijk van je maat, een aantal herhalingen van A.3B (waar 3 minderingen in zitten en op het eind brei je A.3C waar 1 mindering in zit. Het klopt dat de minderingen niet recht boven de gaatjes van 4 naalden daaronder zitten. Kun je aangeven waar in het patroon het aantal steken volgens jou niet kloppen?

Helga Anna 03.04.2017 - 20:00:

Liebes Drops-Team, liebe Sabine Klammer! Ich finde in der letzten Musterreihe (Reihe 17) von A3 zwei Fehler. Zwischen den Abnahmen im Rapport werden nicht 11 sondern nur 9 Maschen rechts gestrickt und in A.3C fehlt eine Abnahme.

Birgitte Høft Larsen 03.04.2017 - 12:24:

Hej med jer. Jeg har stadig ikke fået svar på mit spørgsmål fra den 26.1. Jeg kan se at nu er der endnu en der har problemer med jeres mønster. Kan i ikke snart få det rettet? Det der er problemet er at hvis man gør som beskrevet i diagrammet så passer mønsteret ikke over sig selv. Få nu gjort noget ved det. Til slut vil jeg lige sige at jeg er vild med både jeres garn og opskrifter, her har i bare sovet lidt i timen. Mvh Birgitte

DROPS Design 10.05.2017 kl. 10:28:

Hej Birgitte, jo det stemmer, du strikker A.3A 1 gang hvor du tager 1 m ind på pind 13 og 1 m på pind 17 = 2 indtagninger. Så strikker du A.3B 11 gange hvor du tager 2m ind på pind 13 og 3m ind på pind 17 = 5 indtagninger x 11 = 55 indtagninger. Og sidst strikker du A.3C hvor du tager 1 m ind på pind 13 og 1 m på pind 17 = 2 indtagninger. Det bliver ialt 59 indtagninger. Sæt gerne mærketråde imellem hver gentagelse af A.3B. God fornøjelse!

Sabine Klammer 01.04.2017 - 17:51:

Habe ein Problem mit A3! Habe am Ende der Reihe 146 Maschen statt 143. Habe das ganze Muster A3 nachgerechnet und Maschen gezählt. Bis zu den letzten zwei Reihen stimmt alles, ist die Anleitung mir 3x zusammenstricken 11M rechts im Wechsel richtig? Stimmen A3a und A3c??

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 09:50:

Liebe Frau Klammer, im A.3A werden Sie 2 x 1 M abnehmen = 6 M bei der letzten Reihe - im A.3B werden Sie zuerst 2 M dann 3 M abnehmen = 12 M bei der letzten Reihe und im A.3C werden 1 M x 2 abgenommen= 7 M bei der letzten Reihe, so haben Sie: A.1 (= 5 M), A.3A (= 6), A.3B (= 12 M x 10 = 120), A.3C (= 7 M), A.1 (= 5 M): 5+6+120+7+5=143 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Birgitte Høft Larsen 08.02.2017 - 20:13:

Hvis du har svaret på mit spørgsmål af 26/1, hvor er dit svar så, jeg kan ikke se det. Vil du ha noget imod at skrive svaret igen, eller fortælle hvor jeg finder det? Mvh Birgitte

DROPS Design 09.02.2017 kl. 14:23:

Hej. Der er desvaerre en fejlmelding paa den, men jeg har bedt om at faa den slettet, saa kommer svaret frem igen. Jeg haaber det bliver ordnet hurtigt :)
