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.
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3 – choose the right diagram for your size. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for the buttonholes on the right band (when the garment is worn). 1 buttonhole = start from the right side, knit 1, knit 2 together and make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn overs so that there are holes.
Decrease for the buttonholes when the piece measures:
1/3 months: 4, 9, 14 and 19 cm
6/9 months: 5, 10, 15 and 20 cm
12/18 months: 5, 11, 17 and 23 cm
2 years: 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 cm
3/4 years: 5, 11, 17, 23 and 29 cm
5/6 years: 5, 12, 19, 26 and 33 cm

DECREASE TIP (for the neckline):
Decrease for the v-neck on the inside of the 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front. All decreases are worked from the right side!
Decrease as follows after the 5 band stitches: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before the 5 band stitches: Work until there are 7 stitches left on the needle, knit 2 together and work the 5 band stitches in garter stitches (= 1 stitch decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Front and back pieces are worked back and forth with circular needle in separate sections. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 51-55-59 (65-69-73) stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Cotton Merino. Work 2 RIDGES back and forth – see description above. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work the next row as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, 13-15-17 (18-20-22) stitches stockinette stitch, A.1 (= 19-19-19 (23-23-23) stitches), 13-15-17 (18-20-22) stitches stockinette stitch and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 18-19-21 (23-26-29) cm / 7"-7½"-8 1/4" (9"-10 1/4"-11½") work 2 ridges over the outermost 6 stitches in each side (the other stitches are worked as before). When you have worked 2 ridges in each side, bind off 3 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows for the armholes = 45-49-53 (59-63-67) stitches on the needle. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the armhole, 10-12-14 (15-17-19) stitches stockinette stitch, continue with A.1 over the next 19-19-19 (23-23-23) stitches, 10-12-14 (15-17-19) stitches stockinette stitch and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the armhole. Continue the pattern in this way. When the piece measures 26-28-31 (34-38-42) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13½"--15"-16½") bind off the middle 13-13-13 (17-17-17) stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue by binding off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 15-17-19 (20-22-24) stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until there is 1 row left before the piece measures 28-30-33 (36-40-44) cm / 11"-11 3/4"-12" (14 1/4"-15 3/4"-17 1/4") – adjust so that the next row is worked from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and loosely bind off in knit from the right side! Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 30-32-34 (37-39-41) stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 (including 5 band stitches towards mid front). Work 2 ridges. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work the next row as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.2 (= 9-9-9 (11-11-11) stitches), 13-15-17 (18-20-22) stitches stockinette stitch and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the side. Continue the pattern in this way – remember BUTTONHOLES on the band – see description above. When the piece measures 18-19-21 (23-26-29) cm / 7"-7½"-8 1/4" (9"-10 1/4"-11½") , work 2 ridges over the outermost 6 stitches towards the side (the other stitches are worked as before). When you have worked 2 ridges in the side bind off 3 stitches at the beginning of the next row from the side for the armhole = 27-29-31 (34-36-38) stitches. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, continue with A.2 over the next 9-9-9 (11-11-11) stitches, 10-12-14 (15-17-19) stitches stockinette stitch and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the armhole. Continue the pattern in this way. AT THE SAME TIME when you have worked 1 row from the wrong side after the last buttonhole (the piece measures approx. 20-21-24 (26-30-34) cm / 8"-8 1/4"-9½" (10 1/4"-11 3/4"-13½"), knit the 5 band stitches, turn the piece, tighten the strand and knit back over the 5 band stitches (in other words, the other stitches on the needle are not worked). Then work as before across all the stitches again (this is done to insure that the band lies neatly around the neck). AT THE SAME TIME on the next row from the right side, begin decreasing for the v-neck. Decrease 1 stitch on the inside of the 5 band stitches in garter stitch – READ DECREASE TIP.

Decrease in this way every 4th row (i.e. every other row from the right side) a total
of 4 times in all sizes, then on every 2nd row (i.e. on every row from the right side)
a total of 3-3- 3 (5-5- 5) times = 20-22- 24 (25-27- 29) stitches left on the shoulder.

Continue working until there is 1 row left before the piece measures 28-30-33 (36-40-44) cm / 11"-11 3/4"-12" (14 1/4"-15 3/4"-17 1/4") – adjust so that the next row is worked from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, turn the piece, knit the 5 band stitches and bind off the remaining 15-17- 19 (20-22- 24) stitches on the shoulder. Cut the strand.

NECKLINE:
Work garter stitch back and forth over the 5 band stitches for the neckline until the it measures approx. 5-5-5 (6-6-6) cm / 2"-2"-2" (2½"-2½"-2½") from the shoulder, bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as for the right, but reversed. In other words, work A.3 instead of A.2 (do not decrease for buttonholes on the left band). On the first row from the wrong side when the piece measures 20-21-24 (26-30-34) cm / 8"-8 1/4"-9½" (10 1/4"-11 3/4"-13½") knit the 5 band stitches, turn the piece, tighten the strand and knit back over the 5 band stitches (i.e. the other stitches on the needle are not worked). Then work as before over all the stitches again (this is done to insure that the band will lie neatly around the neck). AT THE SAME TIME on the next row from the right side begin decreasing for the v-neck – READ DECREASE TIP. Continue working until there is one row left before finished length – adjust so that the next row is worked from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, turn the piece, bind off the first 15-17- 19 (20-22- 24) stitches and knit the 5 band stitches. Continue working garter stitch back and forth over the 5 band stitches until the neckline measures 5-5-5 (6-6-6) cm / 2"-2"-2" (2½"-2½"-2½") from the shoulder, bind off.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 32-32-34 (36-38-38) stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work 2 RIDGES in the round – see description above. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and work stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 4-4-5 (6-7-8) cm / 1½"-1½"-2" (2½"-2 3/4"-3") insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve). On the next round increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 5½-3½-3 (3-3-3) cm / 2 1/4"-1 1/4"-1" (1"-1"-1") a total of 3-5-6 (7-8-10) times = 38-42-46 (50-54-58) stitches. When the piece measures 18-20-23 (27-31-35) cm / 7"-8"-9" (10½"-12 1/4"-13 3/4") divide the piece mid under the sleeve. Insert 1 marker, work 3 rows stockinette stitch back and forth over all the stitches and loosely bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the bind-off edge. Sew together the neckline mid back - the seam turns in towards the wrong side. Sew the neckline to the neck edge at the back of the neck. Sew the side seams edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch from the armhole and down, but stop when there is still approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8'' at the bottom in each side (= split).
Sew in the sleeves – the marker mid under the sleeve should fit to the side of the body.
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Merci de votre réponse - je n'avais pas pensé à me servir du traducteur…. je le ferai !

Nanou57 16.02.2019 - 21:09:

Bonsoir, quel dommage que les commentaires ne soient pas traduits en Français également ! ils paraissent forts intéressants et je ne comprends pas…. serait-il possible qu'ils y soient un jour ? merci de votre réponse et belle soirée !

Bonjour Nanou57, vous pouvez volontiers utiliser un traducteur en ligne, même si les traductions paraissent parfois fantaisistes, on arrive ainsi à saisir le sens de la question/réponse. Si vous avez vous même une question, n'hésitez pas à utiliser cet espace pour la poser. Bon tricot!

Waar kan ik de correcties vinden? Al ik op de rode letters klik gebeurt er niets

Hoi Jeanine, Misschien is het nodig om even je browser te verversen met F5 (of de cache te legen met Ctrl + F5) Dit zijn de correcties: Correcties op zowel voor- als achterpand. Gewijzigd online: 31.10.2017 De correcties zijn reeds doorgevoerd op de online versie van het patroon.

Linda 23.01.2018 - 13:20:

Voor dit patroon (maat 2 jaar) heb ik minder dan 4 bollen gebruikt. Niet de aanbevolen 5.

Sandra 16.11.2017 - 11:39:

Hoi, Bij het minderen op de voorpanden, staat in het online-patroon een andere instructie dan op de printversie!

DROPS Design 17.11.2017 kl. 11:58:

Hallo Annelies, Helaas komt het soms voor dat er een fout staat in het patroon, terwijl de breiboeken al uit zijn gekomen. In dat geval kun je correcties vinden in het tabblad 'correcties' rechts van de foto van het patroon online. Bij dit patroon is er op 31 oktober een correctie geweest.

Corine 20.10.2017 - 12:23:

Hi i would really like to finish this sweater but i am waiting for your answer. How is it possible that the pictures shows that the pattern continues on the front up till the top of the shoulder? when i follow the instructions i have to take 1 off after the first 5 stiches 11 times, which means that the 11 pattern stiches are finished...

DROPS Design 20.10.2017 kl. 14:18:

Dear Corine, thanks for your feedback, pattern has now been edited - see also under tab "corrections". Happy knitting!

Corine 13.10.2017 - 11:49:

Hi i have a question about pattern Adrien. Als ik voor de v-hals 11 keer een steek heb geminderd, dan is het hele patroon A2 weg en ga ik van de 5voorbiessteken meteen over op de 17 steken in tricotsteek. Echter op de foto zie ik na de voorbies 1 tricot steeek, 2(?) ribbel en dan het grotere vlak in tricot. Heb ik iets fout gedaan of klopt de beschrijving niet?

Charlotte 12.06.2017 - 21:39:

Jeg kan ikke se diragram A1 kan i hjælpe mig.

DROPS Design 13.06.2017 kl. 07:59:

Hei Charlotte. Scroll helt ned på siden, da ser du alle diagrammene. A.1 er de to øverste diagrammene (det er 2 diagrammer av A.1, avhengig av hvilken størrelse du skal strikke). God Fornøyelse!

Nina 09.06.2017 - 18:37:

Muss ich für die Halsblende an beiden Vorderteilen die Blendenmaschen hochstricken? Mich irritiert, dass bei der Beschreibung der rechten Vorderseite steht, dass ich nach dem Abketten der Schultermaschen den Faden abschneiden soll. Damit müsste ich aber doch noch die Halsblende stricken? Oder hab ich da was falsch verstanden?

DROPS Design 12.06.2017 kl. 08:50:

Liebe Nina, Video unten zeigt wie man einfacher Schalkragen strikt. Hier wird der Faden abgeschnitten und die Blendemaschen weiter gearbeitet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
