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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
All the increases are made from the right side. Increase 8 stitches on a row as follows:
Work to the first A.1, 1 yarn over, work A.1, 1 yarn over. Repeat by all A.1 and A.2 (= 2 stitches increased by each cable = 8 stitches in total on the row). On the next row, the yarn overs are knitted twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for the sleeves):
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch in each side of the piece as follows: Work 1 stitch in garter stitch, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased), work in garter stitch until there are 3 stitches left, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased) and finish with 1 stitch in garter stitch (= a total of 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
The first buttonhole is made when the piece measures approx. 1 cm, then make the next (3) 4-4-4-5 (5-5) with approx. 4 cm between them.
Decrease from the right side for the buttonholes on the right band (when the garment is worn) as follows: Work until there are 4 stitches left on the needle, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 2. On the next row, knit the yarn overs. There will be holes. 
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The jacket is worked top down, back and forth on circular needle from mid front. The sleeves are worked back and forth on circular needle and are sewn together at the end.

YOKE:
Cast on (72) 72-80-80-80 (80-84) stitches (including 4 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 3 mm and Baby Merino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above and increase 8 stitches on the last row = (80) 80-88-88-88 (88-92) stitches. The next row is worked as follows from the right side – remember BUTTONHOLES on the band – see description above: Work (11) 11-13-13-13 (13-14) stitches in garter stitch (= left front piece), A.1 (= 6 stitches), work 10 stitches garter stitch (= left sleeve), A.2 (= 6 stitches), work (14) 14-18-18-18 (18-20) stitches in garter stitch (= back piece), A.1 over the next 6 stitches, work 10 stitches in garter stitch (= right sleeve), A.2 over the next 6 stitches, work (11) 11-13-13-13 (13-14) stitches in garter stitch (= right front piece). Work 1 row from the wrong side.
Increase to RAGLAN – see description above – on each side of every A.1 and A.2 as follows: Increase 1 stitch on every 2nd row (0) 4-5-7-11 (12-16) times, then 1 stitch every 4th row (9) 8-9-9-8 (9-8) times = (152) 176-200-216-240 (256-284) stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! The piece measures approx. (8) 9-10-11-12 (13-14) cm from the cast-on edge.
The next row from the right side is worked as follows: (23) 26-30-32-35 (37-41) stitches in garter stitch, place the next (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches on a thread for the sleeve, cast on 7 stitches under the sleeve, work (38) 44-52-56-62 (66-74) stitches in garter stitch, place the next (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches on a thread for the sleeve, cast on 7 stitches under the sleeve, work (23) 26-30-32-35 (37-41) stitches in garter stitch = (98) 110-126-134-146 (154-170) stitches.
Insert 1 marker in the piece, THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work garter stitch until the piece measures (9) 12-15-16-17 (20-23) cm from the marker. Cast off.

SLEEVE:
Place the (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches from the thread back on circular needle size 3 mm.
Insert 1 marker in the piece, THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Cast on 4 stitches at the end of the next 2 rows (= 4 new stitches in each side of the piece) = (42) 48-52-56-62 (66-72) stitches. Work garter stitch back and forth.
When the piece measures 2 cm from the separation, decrease 1 stitch in each side of the piece – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every (10th) 8th-8th-6th-6th (8th-8th) row a total of (3) 5-7-9-11 (12-14) times = (36) 38-38-38-40 (42-44) stitches.
Continue with garter stitch until the sleeve measures (10) 14-17-18-21 (24-29) cm. Cast off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew together the sleeve seams inside the 1 edge stitch. Sew together the opening under the sleeves. Sew the buttons on to the left front piece.

CROCHET EDGE:
Crochet an edge along the entire opening of the jacket with hook size 3 mm as follows, begin mid back on neck: * 1 double crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip forward approx.0.5 cm *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet.

Manoa 23.04.2019 - 23:04:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas bien : \r\n1. Les diagrammes : s\'ils représentent seulement l’endroit, ça signifie que les rangs sur l’envers sont tricotés à l’endroit (point mousse) sauf A1 et A2 tricotés à l’envers ?\r\n2. A quoi correspondent A1 et A2 une fois débutées les augmentations, svp ? (A1 et A2 = 8 mailles, puis 10mailles, etc. ? Où caler les augmentations ?)\r\nMerci de vos conseils !

DROPS Design 24.04.2019 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Manoa, les diagrammes représentent tous les rangs des diagrammes vus sur l'endroit, A.1 et A.2 vont donc se tricoter en jersey endroit (= une case blanche = 1 m end sur l'endroit, env sur l'envers), et les torsades se feront au 3ème rang de A.1 /A.2. Les diagrammes se tricotent sur 6 mailles tous les 2. Vous augmentez avant et après ces diagrammes et tricotez les nouvelles mailles au point mousse - cf RAGLAN. Bon tricot!

Ég er að velta einu fyrir mér varðandi útaukningar. Talað er um að auka út í annari hverri umferð er þá átt við í hverri sléttri umferð og svo eftir það í annari hverri sléttri umferð?

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 22:42:

Blessuð. Eins og ég skil þetta þá er: Aukið út um 1 lykkju í annarri hverri umferð = slétt umferð (aukið út), brugðin umferð (ekki aukið út), slétt umferð (aukið út). Síðan 1 lykkju í 4. hverri umferð = slétt umferð (aukið út), brugðin umferð (ekki aukið út), slétt umferð (ekki aukið út), brugðin umferð (ekki aukið út), slétt umferð (aukið út). Vona að þetta hafi eitthvað hjálpað.

Denise 20.01.2019 - 08:58:

Hallo. Verstehe ich richtig, dass zwischen den beiden Raglanzunahmen jeweils 6 Maschen gestrickt werden?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:53:

Liebe Denise, die Raglanzunahmen sind auf beiden Seiten A.1/A.2 gestrickt, dh zwischen den Raglanzunahmen haben Sie 6 Maschen (= diese 6 Maschen werden im A.1/A.2 gestrickt). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Martina 12.06.2018 - 23:36:

Stickar strl 1-3 mån. Efter ökn. ska man dela upp maskorna jag får inte det att stämma för jag vet inte om flätan ska tillhöra fram, bakstycket eller ärmarna. När jag delar upp till framstycket delas flätan så att på mitten. Jag får inte det att stämma vid uppdelningen??

DROPS Design 13.06.2018 kl. 17:26:

Hej, det ska vara 1 fläta i varje raglanlinje. Vid uppdelningen sätts alltså de flesta av flätans maskor på en tråd till ärm.

Maune 11.06.2018 - 18:06:

J'aurais aimé que vous proposiez un échantillon plutot que commencer et tout redéfaire arrivée à la fin de l'empiècement pour pouvoir comparer avec la mesure du bas ! dommage !! merci quand même pour vos modèles gratuits toujours tres beaux.

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Mme Maune, vous trouverez les informations sur l'échantillon dans l'en-tête du modèle: 24 m x 48 rangs point mousse = 10 x 10 cm. Bon tricot!

Diana 19.04.2018 - 11:17:

Liebes Drops-Team, ich habe eine Frage zu den Knopflöchern. Es heißt, dass die Knopflöcher in den Hin-Reihen gestrickt werden. Das bedeutet aber auch, dass dann das Knopfloch am Anfang der Reihe eingearbeitet werden sollte und nicht am Ende so wie hier beschrieben: Stricken bis noch 4 Maschen in der Reihe sind, 1 Umschlag, 2 Maschen rechts zusammenstricken und 2 Masche rechts. Oder verstehe ich hier was falsch? Viele Grüße, Diana

DROPS Design 19.04.2018 kl. 11:40:

Liebe Diana, die Knopflöcher werden an der rechten Blende (beim Tragen gesehen) und die Jacke wird von oben nach unten gestrickt, dh mit linkem Vorderteil angefangen und mit rechten Vorderteil beendet, so werden die Knopflöcher am Ende einer Hinreihe gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Co oznacza (w karczku) A.1 ponad 6 następnymi oczkami, i A.2 ponad 6 następnymi oczkami i jak to wykonać? Proszę o odpowiedź. Dziękuję Katarzyna

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 15:14:

Witaj Kasiu! Schematy A.1 i A.2 to warkocze i są wykonywane na 6 oczkach. Najlepiej wyodrębnić sobie te oczka nitkami w kontrastowym kolorze lub markerami, wtedy będziesz wiedziała, gdzie dokładnie ma się znajdować schemat. Np. dla najmniejszego rozmiaru zrobiłabym tak: 11 oczek ściegiem francuskim (= lewy przód), NITKA/MARKER, A.1 (= 6 oczek), NITKA/MARKER, 10 oczek ściegiem francuskim (= lewy rękaw), NITKA/MARKER, A.2 (= 6 oczek), NITKA/MARKER , 14 oczek ściegiem francuskim (= tył), itd. Powodzenia!

Katarzyna 08.03.2018 - 17:30:

I czy dodaje te 8 oczek na karczku po wykonaniu 2 ściągaczy francuskich na prawej czy lewej stronie robótki.? Katarzyna

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 21:25:

Witaj Katarzyno! Oczka należy dodać równomiernie. Jak to zrobić znajdziesz TUTAJ. Miłej pracy!

Katarzyna 08.03.2018 - 17:10:

Witam, w karczku na początku przerobić 2 ściągacze francuskie, a w ostatnim rzędzie dodać 8 oczek, ale w którym miejscu dodać te 8 oczek i w jaki sposób? Czy to ma być gdzieś w trakcie pracy, czy 8 o. na samym końcu, czy na samym początku, czy 4 na początku , i 4 na końcu? Bardzo proszę o odpowiedź. Katarzyna
