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

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

ELEVATION:
Begin from right side and knit the first 67-67-67-77-77-77 stitches, insert a marker (= mid back), knit the next 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit 14-14-14-16-16-16 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit 21-21-21-24-24-24 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit 28-28-28-32-32-32 stitches. Continue back and forth like this by working 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches more every time until the middle 70-70-70-80-80-80 stitches have been worked, knit the rest of row.

INCREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 114 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 20) = 5.2. In this example increase after approx. every 5th stitch. Do not increase over bands. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Work until 2 stitches remain before A.1, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, A.1 (marker thread is in the middle of A.1), knit 2, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next row knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body. All increases are done from right side and work the increased stitches in stocking stitch until they fit the pattern.
INCREASE AS FOLLOWS WHEN INCREASING 2 STITCHES ON EACH SIDE OF STITCH WITH MARKER THREAD:
Begin before stitch with marker thread, pick up loop before stitch and knit loop twisted, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with marker thread), make 1 yarn over, pick up loop before next stitch and knit loop twisted (= 4 stitches increased). On next row purl yarn overs to make holes.

INCREASE AS FOLLOWS WHEN INCREASING 1 STITCH ON EACH SIDE OF STITCH WITH MARKER THREAD:
Begin before stitch with marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with marker thread), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next row purl yarn overs to make holes.

KNITTING TIP:
When increasing for raglan on every 4th row, the holes in raglan line will be further apart than when increasing on every other row. To avoid this work holes on the rows from right side without increase as follows:
Begin 2 stitches before stitch with marker thread, knit 2 tog, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with marker thread), make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.
On next row purl yarn overs to make holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeves):
Begin 2 stitches before A.1 and knit 2 together, A.1 (= 5 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for first buttonhole on first row from right side after edge in garter stitch in neck, then decrease the next 5-5-5-6-6-6 approx. 8 cm apart.
Decrease for buttonholes on right band as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain on needle (seen from right side), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 1. On next row knit yarn over to make holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Work back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 114-114-114-134-134-134 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Safran. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 20 stitches evenly - READ INCREASE TIP-1 = 134-134-134-154-154-154 stitches. Knit 1 row from wrong side inside 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side.
For better fit work a small ELEVATION at the back of neck - see explanation above. When elevation has been worked, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 rows in stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side - remember BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above.
Insert 4 marker threads in piece (without working the stitches): Insert first marker thread in 26th-26th-26th-31st-31st-31st stitch on needle, second marker thread in 47th-47th-47th-52nd-52nd-52nd stitch on needle, insert third marker thread in 88th-88th-88th-103rd-103rd-103rd stitch on needle and insert fourth marker thread in 109th-109th-109th-124th-124th-124th stitch on needle. There are now 25-25-25-30-30-30 stitches between stitches with marker thread on each front piece, 40-40-40-50-50-50 stitches on back piece and 20 stitches in all sizes on each sleeve.
Work next row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 20-20-20-25-25-25 stitches (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 repetitions of 5 stitches), increase 2 stitch on each side of stitch with marker thread for RAGLAN – see explanation above, work A.1 over the 20 stitches on sleeve (= 4 repetitions of 5 stitches), increase 2 stitches on each side of stitch with marker thread, work A.1 over the 40-40-40-50-50-50 stitches on back piece (= 8-8-8-10-10-10 repetitions of 5 stitches), increase 2 stitches on each side of stitch with marker thread, work A.1 over the 20 stitches on sleeve, increase 2 stitches on each side of stitch with marker thread, work A.1 over the next 20-20-20-25-25-25 stitches on front piece and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
Continue pattern and increase for raglan in every transition between body and sleeves as follows:
Increase 2 stitches on each side of stitches with marker thread on every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 6-6-6-8-8-10 times in total (first increase is already done), then increase 1 stitch on each side of stitches with marker threads every other row 8-8-8-9-9-10 times in total. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
When increase has been done 14-14-14-17-17-20 times in total, there are 294-294-294-354-354-394 stitches on row and piece measures approx. 10-10-10-12-12-14 cm from cast-on edge (measured mid front). Then work in stocking stitch back and forth over all stitches with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME continue increase for raglan and increase 1 stitch on each side of stitches with marker threads every other row 0-7-12-4-13-12 times in total and then every 4th row (i.e. every other row from right side) 6-4-3-7-4-5 times in total – READ KNITTING TIP. After last increase for raglan there are 342-382-414-442-490-530 stitches on row and piece measures approx. 17-19-21-23-25-27 cm from cast-on edge (measured mid front).
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work the first 52-57-61-67-73-78 stitches as before (= right front piece), slip the next 72-82-90-92-104-114 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 7-7-9-9-13-15 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 94-104-112-124-136-146 stitches as before (= back piece), slip the next 72-82-90-92-104-114 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 7-7-9-9-13-15 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve) and work the remaining 52-57-61-67-73-78 stitches as before. Finish body and sleeves separately. Remove the marker threads in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 212-232-252-276-308-332 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 7-7-9-9-13-15 stitches cast on under each sleeve and move the marker threads upwards when working. Continue back and forth in stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side. In addition work A.1 over the middle 5 stitches in each side (stitch with marker thread is middle stitch in A.1). When piece measures 3 cm, increase 2 stitches in each side - READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 6-6-6-5-5-4 cm 5-5-5-6-6-7 times in total = 232-252-272-300-332-360 stitches. When piece measures 32 cm, switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work 3 ridges over all stitches. Switch back to circular needle size 3 mm and cast off by knitting from right side. Jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 72-82-90-92-104-114 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 new stitch in each of the 7-7-9-9-13-15 stitches cast on under sleeve = 79-89-99-101-117-129 stitches on needle. Work in stocking stitch in the round but work A.1 over the middle 5 stitches under sleeve. When piece measures 3 cm in all sizes, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease 9-13-17-17-23-28 times in total in S: On every 10th round, in M: On every 6th round, in L and XL: On every 4th round, in XXL: On every round 4 times in total and then every 3rd round 19 times in total and in XXXL: ON every round 8 times in total and then every other round 20 times in total = 61-63-65-67-71-73 stitches. Work until sleeve measures 33-32-31-28-27-26 cm from division. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work 3 ridges in the round. Switch back to double pointed needles size 3 mm and cast off by knitting.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Bij de meerderingen van de raglan: hoe brei je die juist volgens patroon? Bij de eerste meerdering zijn er 2 steken aan iedere kant: hoe in patroon breien? Bij de tweede meerdering zij er 4 steken aan iedere kant: hoe in patroon breien. Bij de derde meerdering zijn er 6 steken aan iedere kant: dan is er 1 steek te veel volgens patroon.

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 12:55:

Dag Krista, De gemeerderde steken brei je steeds in tricotsteek totdat er genoeg gemeerderd zijn om in patroon te breien. De steken die je te veel hebt, waardoor je niet in het patroontje kan breien, brei je dus in tricotsteek.

Wendy Koelemij 31.05.2018 - 17:43:

Hallo! U heeft mijn vraag niet goed begrepen; ik heb er 134. Maar in het patroon staat dat ik tussen de markeerdraden 2x 25+ 2x20+ 40 steken= 130 steken moet hebben. Ik heb er dan 4 teveel, toch?

DROPS Design 03.06.2018 kl. 19:58:

Dag Wendy, Aha, nu snap ik wat je bedoelt. Bij het plaatsen van de markeerdraden, plaats je deze in de steken en niet tussen 2 steken. Dus de 4 steken waar elk een markeerdraad in zit komen nog bij deze 130 steken op, waardoor je op 134 komt.

Wendy 29.05.2018 - 22:35:

Hallo! Ik brei dit vest in mt L. Na de verhoging heb ik 134 steken op de naald. Klopt dat? Toch zie ik dat ik na plaatsen van de markeerdraden 130 steken over moet hebben .2x 25 voorpand, 40 achterpand. 2x 20 mouwen. Waar zijn de 4 steken geminderd?

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 16:23:

Hallo Wendy, Voordat je begint met de verhoging heb je 134 steken op de naald en als je de verhoging (= verkorte toeren) hebt gebreid, moet je nog steeds 134 steken op de naald hebben. Misschien moet je even goed kijken of je tijdens het breien van de verhoging niet per ongeluk steken hebt geminderd.

Gemäß Anleitung sollen für die Ärmel die stillgelegten Maschen auf Nadelspiel 2,5 gelegt bzw. gestrickt werden. Richtig wäre Nadelspiel 3. Erst der Abschluss soll in Krausrippen mit Nadelspiel 2,5 gestrickt werden.

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 15:58:

Liebe Heidi, danke für den Hinweis, Anleitung wird korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Claudie 15.10.2017 - 16:04:

Je n'arrive pas à effectuer les 2 augmentations de chaque côté du raglan, malgré plusieurs tentatives existe-il une vidéo pour cette technique, car toutes les vidéos que je trouve ne parle que d'une augmentation de chaque côté merci

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 09:51:

Bonjour Claudie, pour augmenter en relevant le fil, vous trouverez cette vidéo et pour augmenter avec 1 jeté, c'est celle-ci. Quand on augmente 2 m avant/après chaque marqueur, on va augmenter 16 m par rang. Bon tricot!
