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

STRIPES:
See diagram A.1. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size.

MEASURING TIP:
All length measurements are done when piece is held up, otherwise the jacket will be longer than measurements in chart when worn. This is important because the texture will make the garment longer.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease inside 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side by knitting 2 stitches together. All decreases are done from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sleeves):
Increase 1 stitch inside 2 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 56 stitches), minus 16 band stitches in each side and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 24) = 1.6. In this example increase after alternately approx. every and every other stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in parts and sewn together when finished.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 54-58-62-68-74-78 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm with 2 strands light sea green. Remove one strand and work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm - READ MEASURING TIP, work STRIPES as shown in A.1. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 24 cm in all sizes, decrease 1 stitch in each side - READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 7-7-7-8-8-8 cm 6 times in total in each side = 42-46-50-56-62-66 stitches. When diagram A.1 has been worked, continue with off white until finished measurements. When piece measures 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm - remember MEASURING TIP, cast off for armholes at the beginning of every row in each side as follows: 3 stitches 0-0-1-1-1-1 time, 2 stitches 1-1-0-1-2-2 times and 1 stitch 1-2-2-3-3-4 times = 36-38-40-40-42-44 stitches. Continue to work until piece measures 81-84-87-90-93-96 cm. Now cast off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Cast off 1 stitch on next row from neck = 13-14-14-14-14-15 stitches remain on the shoulder. Work until piece measures 83-86-89-92-95-98 cm – remember MEASURING TIP and cast off with 2 strands off white (this is done to avoid a tight cast-off edge). Work the other shoulder the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 43-45-47-50-53-55 stitches (including 16 band stitches towards mid front) on circular needle size 9 mm with 2 strands light sea green. Remove one strand and work in garter stitch. When piece measures 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm, work stripes as shown in A.1 the same way as on back piece. When piece measures 24 cm in all sizes, begin decrease in the side and decrease the same way as on back piece = 37-39-41-44-47-49 stitches. When piece measures 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm, cast off for armholes at the beginning of every row the same way as on back piece = 34-35-36-36-37-38 stitches. When piece measures 77-80-83-86-89-92 cm, slip the outermost 17-17-18-18-19-19 stitches towards mid front on 1 stitch holder for neck (work them before slipping them on stitch holder to avoid cutting the yarn). Continue to cast off for neck at beginning of every row from neck as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 13-14-14-14-14-15 stitches remain for shoulder. Work until piece measures 83-86-89-92-95-98 cm – remember MEASURING TIP and cast off with 2 strands off white.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as right front piece but with decreases in the opposite side.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 20-22-22-24-24-26 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm with 2 strands off white. Remove one strand and work in garter stitch back and forth. When piece measures 10 cm, increase 1 stitch in each side - READ INCREASE TIP-1! Increase like this every 5-5-4-3½-3-3 cm 8-8-9-10-11-11 times in total = 36-38-40-44-46-48 stitches. When piece measures 47-47-46-45-44-43 cm, cast off for sleeve cap at beginning of every row in each side as follows: 3 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 1-1-2-2-2-2 times and 1 stitch 3-3-3-5-6-7 times. Then cast off 2 stitches at beginning of every row in each side until piece measures 54-54-54-55-55-55 cm. Cast off 3 stitches at beginning of the next 2 rows before loosely casting off the remaining stitches with 2 strands off white. Entire sleeve measures approx. 55-55-55-56-56-56 cm from top and down. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves. Sew underarm seams and side seams in one - sew in outer loops of edge stitches to avoid a chunky seam, but leave approx. 20 cm at the bottom of each side of front and back piece for vents.

HOOD:
Pick up from right side approx. 56 to 68 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holders at the front) on circular needle size 9 mm with off white. Work in garter stitch back and forth and increase AT THE SAME TIME evenly to 80-82-84-86-88-90 stitches on first row – READ INCREASE TIP-2 (do not increase over the outermost 16 stitches in each side). When hood measures 35-35-36-36-37-37 cm, loosely cast off with 2 strands off white.
Place hood double and sew together at the top with grafting/kitchener stitches.

TIES:
The jacket has 4 ties, 2 ties in 2 strands off white and 2 strands in 1 strand off white + 1 strand light sea green.
1 tie = cut 2 strand of approx. 2.8 meters. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the strands double so that they twine. Tie a knot in each end (string should be approx. 1 meter when finished, cut it to correct length if needed).
Fasten 1 tie in off white + light sea green on the outside on the left side of jacket approx. 2 cm below armhole (try the jacket on and adjust placement of string). The other tie with off white + light sea green should be fastened to the edge of right front piece approx. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from shoulder and down. Fasten 1 tie in off white approx. 2 cm below armhole on the inside of jacket in right side. The other tie in off white should be fastened at the other at the edge of left front piece approx. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from shoulder and down.

Kriebelt/prikt dit garen?

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 16:08:

Dag Karin,

Ja, hier zit o.a. alpaca in, dus als je gevoelig bent voor 'kriebelen' dan is dit garen minder geschikt/

Telpatroon is toch zowel goede als verkeerde kant.

Melanie 17.10.2018 - 18:26:

Hallo liebes Garnstudio-Team! Ich habe eine Frage zum Maschen Stilllegen und Kapuze anstricken. Ich sitze nun an einem der Vorderteile und komme leider einfach nicht weiter. Wenn ich am linken Rand die Abnahme für den Armausschnitt gemacht habe, muss ich dann die (bei mir 18) Maschen vom linken Rand aus stilllegen oder vom rechten Rand aus gesehen? An welcher Stelle beginne ich dann für den Halsausschnitt? Ich würde mich sehr über Eure Hilfe freuen! Vielen Dank! Melanie

DROPS Design 18.10.2018 kl. 09:14:

Liebe Melanie, fur den rechten Vorderteil werden Sie die ersten 18 Maschen der Hinreihe stilllegen (= gegen die Öffnung der Jacke), und für den linken Vorderteil werden Sie die ersten 18 Maschen der Rückreihe stilllegen (= gegen die Öffnung der Jacke). Dann weiter am Anfang der HIn- (= re. Vorderteil) bzw Rückreihe (= li. Vorderteil) die Maschen für den Halsausschnitt abketten. Für die Kapuze nehmen Sie dann die Maschen um den Hals auf: von der rechten Blende bis linken Blende (= Vorderseite). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hvorfor slår man masker op med to tråde?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 08:37:

Hej Mette, man slår op med to tråde for at kanten ikke skal blive for stram. God fornøjelse!

Mary 21.04.2018 - 20:30:

Bonjour, dans l'explication concernant le dos quand on est aux diminutions pour les emmanchures, doit-on respecter les directives concernant les diminutions uniquement sur l'endroit ou les effectuer sur tous les rangs uniquement au début de ceux-ci? D'avance merci pour votre réponse?

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 09:19:

Bonjour Mary, pour le dos, on rabat les mailles des emmanchures de chaque côté = au début de chaque rang (sur l'endroit et sur l'envers): 0-1 fois 3 m = 0-3 m rabattues de chaque côté, puis 0-1-2 fois 2 m (cf taille) = 0-2-4 m rabattues en plus de chaque côté. Bon tricot!

Do you have the translation of Drops 175-2 in Dutch please?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 16:16:

Dag Madelon, De Nederlandse vertaling van dit patroon is er net op gezet. :) Veel breiplezier!

Mary 06.02.2018 - 21:48:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas trop le début des explications. Faut-il monter les nombre de mailles avec 2 fils vert océan clair uniquement pour la 1ère ligne et ensuite continuer au point mousse avec 1 fil? D'avance merci. :-)

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Mary, c'est tout à fait ainsi que l'on procède: on monte les mailles avec 2 fils mais on continue avec un seul fil. Bon tricot!

Melanie Kurpiers 17.01.2018 - 15:41:

Guten Tag, Ihr habt schöne Anleitungen auch fpr grosse Grössen! Leider muss ich sagen das es für mich als Anfänger doch recht schwer zu verstehen ist. Es mag für erfahrene Strickerinnen bestimmt einfach sein aber für mich ist es recht kompliziert beschrieben. Ich versteh die abnahmen bei den ärmeln nicht geschweige den ein ärmel Stricken. Gibt es eine Anleitung in der das evtl schrit für Schritt gezeigt wird? Liebe grüsse Melanie Kurpiers

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 17:15:

Liebe Frau Kurpiers, für die Armkugel sollen Sie die Maschen beidseitig so abketten (= am Anfang jeder Reihe, dh Hin- sowie Rückreihe = auf beiden Seiten jeder 2. Reihe): 3 Maschen 1 x, 2 Maschen 1-1-2-2-2-2 x und 1 Masche 3-3-3-5-6-7 x. Dann 2 Maschen am Anfang jeder Reihe abketten, bis die Ärmel 54-54-54-55-55-55 cm mist. Dann je 3 Maschen am Anfang der nächsten 2 Reihen abketten und dann die restlichen Maschen mit 2 Fäden natur abketten. Für eine genauere Antwort können Sie gerne Ihre Größe schreiben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Fetta 09.01.2018 - 14:43:

Bonjour, Je lis : Quand l'ouvrage mesure 14-15-18-19 cm tricoter les rayures. Sur la photo je vois que les rayures sont fait au début de l'ouvrage. Aidez moi. Merci.

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 17:03:

Bonjour Mme Fetta, tout à fait, les rayures commencent en bas, à 14-19 cm (cf taille et diagramme) en les commençant en naturel. Bon tricot!
