INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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. See diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP (for the side):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread in the side: Knit 2 stitches together, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these stitches), slip 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

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

BUTTONHOLE:
Decrease for buttonholes on the right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from the edge together and make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over = hole.
Decrease for buttonholes when the piece measures:
S: 16, 25, 34, 43, 52 and 61 cm
M: 16, 25, 34, 43, 53 and 63 cm
L: 16, 25, 35, 45, 55 and 65 cm
XL: 16, 24, 32, 40, 49, 58 and 67 cm
XXL: 16, 24, 33, 42, 51, 60 and 69 cm
XXXL: 16, 26, 35, 44, 53, 62 and 71 cm
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked back and forth from mid front, bottom up to the armholes. Then work the front and back pieces back and forth on circular needle, separately. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 204-220-232-252-272-296 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side, then work rib as follows – from the right side: 5 stitches GARTER STITCH – see description above, * knit 2 / purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 7 stitches left, knit 2 stitches and 5 stitches garter stitch. Continue with rib until the piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8''. Change to circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 and work 1 ridge over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first row of the ridge, decrease 34-38-38-42-46-50 stitches evenly on the row = 170-182-194-210-226-246 stitches. Continue as follows – from the right side: 5 stitches garter stitch, purl 2, A.1 (= 24-24-24-28-28-28 stitches), purl 2, knit 25-31-37-37-45-55, purl 2, A.1, purl 2, A.1, purl 2, knit 25-31-37-37-45-55, purl 2, A.1, purl 2 and 5 stitches garter stitch. Continue this pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Insert 1 marker thread in each side, 45-48-51-55-59-64 stitches in from mid front (back piece = 80-86-92-100-108-118 stitches). When the piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads in the sides = 4 stitches decreased, READ DECREASE TIP! Decrease every 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm / 4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5"-5"-5½"-5½" a total of 4 times = 154-166-178-194-210-230 stitches. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'' start decreasing for BUTTONHOLE – see description above. When the piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm / 19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21'' work ridges over 14 stitches in each side (= 7 stitches on each side of the marker threads in the sides). When you have worked 2 ridges over the stitches in the sides, work the next row as follows – from the right side: Work 37-40-43-47-51-56 stitches, bind off the next 8 stitches for the armhole (= 4 stitches on each side of the marker threads in the sides), work 64-70-76-84-92-102 stitches, bind off the next 8 stitches for the armhole, work 37-40-43-47-51-56 stitches. Now work each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 64-70-76-84-92-102 stitches. Continue with pattern as before, the 3 outermost stitches in each side are now worked in garter stitch. When the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' bind off the middle 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Bind off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 18-21-23-27-30-35 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'' (the remaining stitches in A.1 are worked in stockinette stitch) and bind off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 37-40-43-47-51-56 stitches. Continue with pattern as before, the 3 outermost stitches in the side towards the armhole are worked in garter stitch. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES. Continue working until the piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm / 24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''. Now place the first 15-15-16-16-17-17 stitches on a thread for the neck. Continue the pattern as before and bind off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 18-21-23-27-30-35 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'' (the remaining stitches in A.1 are worked in stockinette stitch) and bind off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as for the right, but reversed.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles/circular needle. Cast on 40-40-44-48-52-52 stitches with double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and Air. Knit 1 round, then work rib, knit 2/ purl 2. Work rib for 5 cm / 2'', then change to double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10, work 1 RIDGE, see description above, on the first round of the ridge decrease 6-6-8-10-12-12 stitches evenly on round = 34-34-36-38-40-40 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round = mid under the sleeve. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 8-8-8-8-10-9 cm / 3"-3"-3"-3"-4"-3½'' increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 3½-3-2½-2½-2-2 cm / 1 1/4"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4" a total of 12-13-14-14-15-16 times = 58-60-64-66-70-72 stitches. When the piece measures 49-48-47-46-44-41 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-18½"-18"-17 1/4"-16" (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of the shoulder width), bind off the middle 6 stitches under the sleeve and the sleeve cap is finished back and forth on circular needle. Work stockinette stitch and bind off at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: 3 stitches 3 times = 34-36-40-42-46-48 stitches. The sleeve measures approx. 52-51-50-48-47-44 cm / 20½"-20"-19 3/4"-19"-18½"-17 1/4". Bind off the remaining stitches. Work one more sleeve in the same way.

NECKLINE:
Knit up approx. 80 - 100 stitches (including the stitches on the threads) with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and Air. Work 2 ridges back and forth, then bind off with knit from the right side.

Cristina 24.03.2019 - 15:19:

Buenas tardes, he llegado hasta el momento de disminuir el cuello y no entiendo cuántos puntos hay que disminuir, he disminuido 2 + 1 + 1 punto y no queda igualado con la espalda, creo que no está bien explicado y que hay que seguir disminuyendo hasta tener 18 puntos en cada lado delantero igual que en los hombros de la espalda, porque si no no queda bien, podrían especificarlo por favor? Gracias.

DROPS Design 24.03.2019 kl. 19:50:

Hola Cristina. El escote de delantero derecho se trabaja como sigue ( por ejemplo, para la talla S): pasar los 15 puntos más externos hacia el centro del delantero a un gancho auxiliar, en la siguiente fila por el lado derecho disminuir 2 puntos, en la siguientes 2 filas por el lado derecho disminuir cada vez 1 punto = 37 - 15 - 2- 1 -1 =quedan 18 puntos para el hombro ( igual que en la espalda).

Dziękuję za odpowiedzi. Pozdrawiam

Barbara 07.02.2019 - 17:20:

Dzien dobry, nie rozumiem po co mam przekladac 15 oczek na nitke i kiedy do nich wracam. Po przelozeniu oczek moja nitka jest na poczatku rzedu. Mam przerobic te 15 oczektak jak w schemacie i dopiero je zdjac na nitke, a potem ( na poczatku pozostalych 25 oczkek tego samego rzedu) zamknac 2 oczka, nastepnie w kolejnym rzedzie 1 oczko, tylko co z tymi 15 oczkami? Sa na nitce, opis nie wyjasnia co mam z nimi zrobic. Dziekuje zaodpowiedz.

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 08:38:

Witaj Basiu, tak najpierw przerób te 15 oczek, a dopiero później przełóż na nitkę. Dalej zamykasz na dekolt na początku każdego rzędu od strony dekoltu (czyli od tej nitki): 1 raz 2 oczka i 2 razy 1 oczko. Co później z tymi 15 oczkami wyjaśniłam już w poprzedniej odpowiedzi na twoje pytanie Pozdrawiamy!

Barbara 07.02.2019 - 16:12:

Dzien dobry , prosze wyjasnijcie co mam robic :"Umieścić teraz na drucie nitce 15-15-16-16-17-17 pierwszych oczek na dekolt." Czy to oznacza, ze przerabiam te oczka dzersejem a nastepne 25 oczek przerabiam wedlug opisu? Czy po prostu pozostawiam 15o. i zaczynam rzad po tych 15 o., wowczas oznaczaloby ze te 15o. przerabiam odzielnie az beda siegac do ramienia i doszywam je do dekoltu ( tylko ze 15 o =8cm? czy dobrze rozumiem? pozdrawiam.

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 08:33:

Witaj Barbaro, przekładasz 15 pierwszych oczek na drut pomocniczy/nitkę, a następnie przerabiasz do końca już tylko pozostałe oczka (ramię) wg schematu, zamykając oczka od strony dekoltu (od środka przodu swetra), i dalej przerabiasz wg schematu, aż dł. robótki wynosi 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm (pozostałe oczka schematu A.1 są przerabiane dżersejem) i zakończyć. Zobacz schematyczny rysunek na końcu opisu. A te pozostawione 15 oczek na każdym przodzie będą potrzebne dopiero na końcu, przy wykonywaniu wykończenia dekoltu. Powodzenia!

Cheryl Lyon 10.12.2018 - 00:05:

I have the same query as the lady HHK on12.03.2018 but I do not understand the answer you gave her. Are the stitches between the A1 patterns knitted in stocking stitch or garter stitch. I cannot tell by looking at the picture. Please give instructions for the second row of the body

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 10:33:

Dear Mrs Lyon, the stitches between A.1 will be either K or P - you are working from RS: 5 stitches garter stitch, purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS), A.1 (= 24-24-24-28-28-28 stitches = work these sts as shown in diagram), purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS), knit 25-31-37-37-45-55 (= P these sts from WS), purl 2 (K these 2 sts from WS), A.1, purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS), A.1, purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS), knit 25-31-37-37-45-55 (= P these sts from WS), purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS), A.1, purl 2 (= K these 2 sts from WS) and 5 stitches garter stitch. Happy knitting!

MIchele 20.09.2018 - 15:51:

Question for shoulder/neck: I have placed the first 15 stitches on the thread. I am actually binding off 2 stitches from the needle, correct? The pattern says continue working the piece until it measures 68cm. AND it also says the remaining stitches in A1 are worked in stockinette stitch and bind off. Does this mean I no longer work the pattern from the time I bind off those first 2 stitches? Or exactly at what point do I stop working the A1 pattern on the shoulder and switch over to ss?

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 16:00:

Dear Michele, correct, after you have binding off stitches for neck, you continue working all stitches in stocking stitch. Happy knitting!

Viola 03.04.2018 - 21:17:

Hallo, ich würde diese Jacke für ein neunjähriges Mädchen stricken. Es gibt nicht zufällig diese Anleitung für die Größe XXS oder XS? Viele Grüße

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 08:54:

Liebe Frau Viola, dieses Modell gibt es nur in Damen-Größe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Holly Hensel Kinsella 12.03.2018 - 21:30:

When not working the A-1 pattern or the front band garter do you knit on your purls and purl on your knits on the opposite sides? After you set up the pattern it just says to continue the pattern upwards and I find this confusing? Exp. on the 25 knit stitches on either side do you purl these on the wrong side? And the 2 purls between the patterns do you knit these on the wrong sides? Thank you!

DROPS Design 13.03.2018 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Kinsella, from WS you work in garter st the sts in garter st and K over K and P over P and diagram as shown on WS row in diagram. Happy knitting!

Barbara 24.02.2018 - 18:41:

Guten Tag, ich wollte mir diese Anleitung ausdrucken, aber es hat leider NICHT funktioniert, nur die Seiten 1 - 3 sind ausdruckbar, das Lochmuster und die Skizze für die Maße kann ich nicht ausdrucken, können Sie mir bitte weiterhelfen? Grüße Barbara

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 08:09:

Liebe Barbara, die Settings Ihrer Drücker sollen Sie vielleicht mal prüfen, damit alle Seiten gedrückt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Fran Miller 15.01.2018 - 17:28:

I am assembling the piece and working on the neck and so there is no decreasing at all. I want to know if I should knit the stitches off of the thread and then pick up stitches around the rest of the neck and then knit the final 15 stitches that are on the thread.

DROPS Design 16.01.2018 kl. 09:03:

Dear Mrs Miller, correct, you will knit the sts from thread back on needle and knit up sts around whole neckline, beg on one shoulder or on mid back. Happy knitting!
