INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of A.1.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.1 as follows (= 8 new stitches each time you increase).
Work to A.1, 1 yarn over, work A.1, 1 yarn over. On the next round, purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP (for the sides):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread in the side. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these) and make 1 yarn over.
On the next round, purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together.

BUTTONHOLE:
The first buttonhole is worked when the rib in the neck measures 3 cm, then work the 5-5-5-6-6-6 next buttonholes with approx. 8 cm between them.
Decrease for buttonhole on the right band as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left on the needle (seen from the right side), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 1. On the next row, knit the yarn over, so that there is a hole. 
----------------------------------------------------------

The jacket is worked back and forth with circular needle, from mid front and top down.

JACKET:
Cast on 120-128-132-136-144-144 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 4 mm and Puna. Purl 1 row from the wrong side, then work as follows – from the right side: 5 stitches garter stitch, * knit 2/ purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 7 stitches left, knit 2 stitches and 5 stitches garter stitch. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLE! Continue with rib in this way for 4 cm. The last row is from the wrong side. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above, on the first row, decrease 2 stitches evenly on row = 118-126-130-134-142-142 stitches. Continue as follows – from the right side: Work 5 stitches garter stitch, knit 11-12-13-15-16-18, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times (= these 7 stitches become 13 stitches), knit 18-20-20-18-20-16, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 22-24-26-30-32-36, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 18-20-20-18-20-16, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 11-12-13-15-16-18 and 5 stitches garter stitch = 142-150-154-158-166-166 stitches. Purl 1 row from the wrong side; the yarn overs are purled twisted to prevent holes and the bands are knitted. Continue as follows from the right side: Work 5 stitches garter stitch (= band stitches), 4-5-6-8-9-11 stitches stocking stitch (= left front piece), A.1 (= 27 stitches), 4-6-6-4-6-2 stitches stocking stitch (= sleeve), A.1, 8-10-12-16-18-22 stitches stocking stitch (= back piece), A1, 4-6-6-4-6-2 stitches stocking stitch (= sleeve), A.1, 4-5-6-8-9-11 stitches stocking stitch (= right front piece and finish with 5 stitches garter stitch (= band stitches). 

READ THE WHOLE OF THE NEXT SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue this pattern, at the same time increase on each side of A.1 to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase every 2nd row (= each row from the right side) 21-24-27-30-32-35 times. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! After all the increases, there are 310-342-370-398-422-446 stitches on the needle. Continue the pattern as before (without increases) until the piece measures 22-24-26-29-30-33 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.

The next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: Work 50-54-58-63-68-73 stitches (= right front piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve), work 90-98-106-116-126-136 stitches (= back piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve) and work the remaining 50-54-58-63-68-73 stitches (= left front piece).

BODY:
= 206-222-242-262-286-310 stitches. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast on. Continue back and forth with stocking stitch and 5 stitches garter stitch in each side of the piece. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLE. Continue A.1 over the 20-20-20-20-22-22 stitches in the pattern which remain on the front and back pieces, but on every 2nd row (= each row from the right side) make 1 yarn over on the outside of each A.1 (= towards mid front and mid back) and knit 2 stitches together on each side of the marker thread in the sides.
The yarn overs are purled twisted on the next row to prevent holes. The number of stitches remains the same, but the stitches in A.1 will gradually decrease towards the sides of the jacket and there will be more and more stitches in stocking stitch. When there are not enough stitches in A.1 to work 6-stitch cable, work these stitches in stocking stitch, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 3 stitches evenly over the cable, do not decrease over the cable with 2 stitches (remember to make the increase on the outside of A.1 and decrease on each side of the marker threads). When all of A.1 has been decreased there are 182-198-218-238-262-286 stitches on the row. Continue with stocking stitch and garter stitch over the band stitches. There is 48-52-57-62-68-74 stitches on each front piece and 86-94-104-114-126-138 stitches on back piece. When the piece measures 15-15-15-15-15-15 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches increased) – READ INCREASE TIP! Increase every 5 cm a total of 4 times = 198-214-234-254-278-302 stitches. When the piece measures 32-32-32-31-32-31 cm, purl 1 row from the wrong side where you increase 42-46-50-54-58-62 stitches evenly on row (the bands are continued in garter stitch, do not increase over these stitches) = 240-260-284-308-336-364 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. On the next row from the right side, work as follows: 5 stitches garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 7 stitches left, knit 2 stitches and 5 stitches garter stitch. Work rib for 2 cm, cast off loosely, with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jacket measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE: 
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle/double pointed needles. Place the 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm. In addition, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches mid under the sleeve = 68-76-84-88-92-96 stitches on the needle. Insert a marker thread in the middle of these new stitches – The piece is now measured from here! Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2-2-2-2-2-4 cm decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease every 3-2-1½ -1½-1½-1 cm a total of 12-15-18-19-20-21 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. When the sleeve measures 38-36-35-33-32-30 cm increase 4-6-8-6-8-10 stitches evenly on round = 48-52-56-56-60-64 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work rib, knit 2/ purl 2 over all stitches. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl when the sleeve measures 43-41-40-38-37-35 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.


ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew the buttons onto the left band.

How do I print the photo of pattern pu-019?

Dear Diane, click on "Picture" between "Print pattern" and "Add to favorites", just above where you can read "Pattern instructions". Happy knitting!

Christelle 20.04.2018 - 09:05:

Bonjour, est-ce que les aug./dim. se font dès le 1er rg endroit après avoir mis en attente les m. des manches ? Egalement, pouvez-vous m'expliquer comment faire les dim. de 3 m. au-dessus de la torsade de 6 m. qui ne peut plus se faire ? Quand j'arrive à ce stade, je fais 1 torsade de 6 m., 1 m. env. et il me reste 6 m. avant le fil marqueur : dois-je tricoter 3 fois 2 m. ens. ? J'ai l'impression d\'avoir fait une erreur. Merci d\'avance pour votre aide!

DROPS Design 20.04.2018 kl. 09:31:

Bonjour Christelle, on augmente sur le devant et sur le dos (= 2 m par côté/4 m au total) avant les torsades devant/dos et après ces torsades. On diminue en même temps 1 m de chaque côté du fil marqueur (= 2 dim par côté/4 dim au total). Quand vous arrivez aux diminutions sur les torsades, tricotez ces 6 m 2 par 2 ens à l'end (= 3 diminutions) mais continuez bien à augmenter/diminuer comme avant. Ces diminutions dans les torsades permettent de bien conserver la bonne largeur. Bon tricot!

Evelyne 18.03.2018 - 18:15:

Bonjou, je bute sur les augmentations à faire sur A1, on est bien d\\\'accord qu\'il y a dans l\'ouvrage 4 A1? Donc, un jeté de chaque côté fait 8 augmentations en tout! Alors que les diminutions sur les nouvelles mailles montées (2 fois 8-8-10-10-12-14) se font de chaque côté, donc 4 augmentations. Il manque 4 mailles! Faut-il faire des diminutions au milieu de ces nouvelles mailles? Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 15:00:

Bonjour Evelyne, il y a bien 4 fois A.1 répartis ainsi: A1, 8-10-12-14 m, A.1 de chaque côté. On va augmenter et diminuer ainsi: 1 augmentation, A.1, jersey jusqu'à 2 m avant le marqueur, 2 m ens à l'end, marqueur, 2 m ens à l'end, A.1, 1 augmentation = on augmente 2 m et on diminue 2 m au milieu sous la manche et on répète ça sur l'autre côté, on augmente 4 m et on diminue 4 m au total sur le rang. Bon tricot!

Talli 16.03.2018 - 16:03:

Thank you for the super-fast reply! I still require some clarification though:instruction is to dec 3 evenly over cable, and there are 4 cables. That makes a total of 12s decreased. But i start with 222s ans suppose to end with 198, which makes a total if 4dec. What i am having difficulty with is this math... what am i missing??? 😅 thanks again!

Talli 16.03.2018 kl. 17:04:

Sorry for bothering you, just figured my mistake!

Talli 16.03.2018 - 15:11:

Hello, i have a question concerning the body section descreases. I am asked to end up with 4s less than i stated with, matching 4 repetitions of A1. My problem us that i am asked to decrease 3s evenly over the cable while only increasing 1, and that makes 8 in total and not 4. Could you please assist me? Thank you very much for all the wonderful patterns!!!

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 15:31:

Dear Talli, continue the dec (4 sts) and the inc (4 sts) as before to displace the pattern on the side (until it disappear), but when you don't have enough sts to work the 6 sts cable, decrease 3 sts over each of these cable to keep the correct width (cables are tighening pieces, if you don't dec over the cables when you cannot work them anymore, piece will be wider). Happy knitting!

Angela Brandt 28.01.2018 - 15:17:

Hallo eine Frage: ich stricke gerade die Jacke und es heisst beim Rumpf: Beim Zopf gleichzeitig je 3 Maschen abnehmen. Das verstehe ich nicht. Wo soll ich bitte diese Maschen abnehmen? Ist das egal und wie oft ? Vielen Dank im voraus

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 10:40:

Liebe Frau Brandt, wenn es nicht genügend Maschen für die Zöpfe gibt (dh wegen Abnehmen mitte under den Arm), dann nehmen Sie 3 M auf jedem Zopf, damit die Breite mit/ohne Zopf immer stimmt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lydia Petit 04.01.2018 - 22:11:

Bonjour. Lorsqu'il n'y a plus assez de mailles pour tricoter les torsades de A1 en entier, il est écrit qu'il faut diminuer de 3 mailles au dessus de chaque torsade. Cela fait donc 24 mailles sur le même rang. Cela me semble énorme. Pouvez-vous me confirmer ? Merci

DROPS Design 05.01.2018 kl. 09:12:

Bonjour Mme Petit, on va diminuer seulement les mailles des torsades de 6 m qui ne peuvent plus être croisées, donc 1 des torsades dans chaque A.1, et pas dans tout A.1 en même temps. On diminue dans les torsades pour bien conserver la bonne largeur (les torsades resserrent davantage que le jersey). Bon tricot!

Camille 13.11.2017 - 23:14:

Bonjour, Au moment du placement des deux fils marqueurs pour les côtés du dos et des devants, je ne comprends pas comment le nombre de mailles peut rester le même si j'augmente d'une maille de part et d'autre des quatre A1, soit huit mailles de plus en tout, et que je ne diminue que d'une maille de chaque côté des deux marqueurs, soit 4 mailles en moins. Merci de votre aide !!

DROPS Design 14.11.2017 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Camille, on va augmenter 4 m et diminuer 4 m sur le même rang, ainsi le nombre de mailles va rester le même. Bon tricot!

Marie 27.10.2017 - 21:17:

Nu har jeg prøvet en del forskellige måder, og dette er den bedste efter min mening. Afpas de 3 indtagninger på snoningen med en snogningsomgang. Put de 3 m på hjælpepind, strik derefter 1 m fra hjælpepind + 1m fra pind ret sammen. Gentag i alt 3 gange. Det giver en flot snoning og indtagning der ser meget naturlig ud.

Marie 26.10.2017 - 10:39:

Hej. Jeg forstår ikke hvad jeg skal. Jeg har taget ind på hver side af mærketråden i siden og nu er snoningerne på hver side af mærketråden. Hvis jeg tager 3 m ind vil jeg skulle strikke alle 6 m 2 ret sammen. Men der står jeg samtidig skal tage ind på hver side af mærketråden. Hvordan skal det kunne lade sig at gøre?

DROPS Design 15.11.2017 kl. 13:52:

Hej, Jo men det stemmer, maskerne i A.1 vil forsvinde efterhånden som du tager ind i siden, men for at maskeantallet ikke skal blive mindre så tager du samtidig ud på ydersiden af A.1. God fornøjelse!
