Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

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 diagrams A.1 to A.8. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

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

BINDING OFF TIP:
To avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off using a ½ needle size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked in the round into a square with double pointed needles/circular needle starting from mid back. Bind off for the armholes, then continue the square to finished length. Then work back and forth, out to each side towards mid front of the jacket, but without increasing. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

Cast on 8-8-8-8 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Cotton Merino. Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 a total of 4 times on the round - read PATTERN above. Change to circular needle when necessary. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the whole of diagram A.1 has been completed there are 128 stitches on the round. Insert 4 markers without working the stitches as follows: insert the first marker at the beginning of the round, the second marker after the next 32 stitches, the third after 32 stitches and the fourth after 32 stitches; allow the markers to follow your work onwards.
Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.2 (= 2 stitches), A.3 over the next 28 stitches (= 2 repeats of 14 stitches) and A.4 (= 2 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 4 times on the round. When A.2/A.3/A.4 have been completed in height there are 60 stitches between each marker (= 240 stitches on the round).
Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.2 (= 2 stitches), A.3 over the next 56 stitches (= 4 repeats of 14 stitches) and A.4 (= 2 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 4 times on the round. When A.2/A.3/A.4 have been completed in height there are 88 stitches between each marker (= 352 stitches on the round).
Continue pattern in this way - each time the diagrams are repeated in height, work 2 more repeats of A.3 between A.2 and A.4 (= 8 increased repeats on the round). When the square measures approx. 36-38-40-42 x 36-38-40-42 cm / 14 1/4"-15"-15 3/4"-16½" x 14 1/4"-15"-15 3/4"-16½" (adjust so that the next round is without yarn overs) bind off for the armholes as follows: bind off the first 38-42-44-46 stitches for armhole, work until there are 38-42-44-46 stitches left before the fourth marker, bind off the next 38-42-44-46 stitches for armhole, work as far as the first marker. On the next round cast on 38-42-44-46 stitches over the armholes; the stitches are then worked into the pattern. Continue the pattern until A.3 has been completed a total of 3-4-4-4 times in height (there is now 1-½-1-1 repeat left in height before finished measurement of square). Now work the first 22-10-22-22 rounds as before. Work the next round in the diagrams, but skip the first 2 yarn overs in A.2 and skip the last yarn over in A.4.
The next round in the pattern is worked as follows: NOTE: Skip the first 2 squares in A.2 and skip the last square in A.4 - Work from the first to the second marker and place these 141-155-169-169 stitches on 1 thread (= left front piece), work to the third marker and place these 141-155-169-169 stitches on 1 thread (= bottom edge), work to the fourth marker and place these 141-155-169-169 stitches on1 thread (= right front piece), work to the first marker = 141-155-169-169 stitches left on needle (= neckline). Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 2 RIDGES back and forth - see description above, over these stitches. Loosely bind off - read BINDING OFF TIP above. Place the 141-155-169-169 stitches from the bottom edge on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 2 ridges back and forth over these stitches, loosely bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth.
Place the 141-155-169-169 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Start from the right side and work as follows: Knit up 3 stitches in the side of the ridges from the neckline, work A.5 (= 7 stitches) - read PATTERN above, work A.6 (= 14 stitches) a total of 9-9-11-11 times in width, work A.7 (= 8 stitches) and knit up 3 stitches in the side of the ridges from the bottom edge = 147-161-175-175 stitches. The 3 stitches in each side are continued in garter stitch. Continue this pattern until A.5/A.6/A.7 have been completed 2-2-2-2 times in height, then work the first 0-0-0-12 rows in the pattern. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 2 ridges, loosely bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth.
Place the 141-155-169-169 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work as for left front piece, but the first row starts with knitting up stitches in the side of the ridges from the bottom edge and finishes with knitting up stitches in the side of the ridges from the neckline.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.
Cast on 75-85-89-93 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Cotton Merino. Insert 1 marker at the start of the round, allow the marker to follow your work onwards = mid under sleeve. Work the next round as follows: Knit 30-35-37-39 stitches, diagram A.8 (= 15 stitches), knit 30-35-37-39 stitches. Continue this pattern. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker - read DECREASE TIP above. Decrease in this way every 3-2½-2½-2½ cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-7/8'' a total of 14-17-18-19 times = 47-51-53-55 stitches. When the piece measures 48-49-54-54 cm / 19"-19 1/4"-21 1/4"-21 1/4'' - adjust to after the 12th or 24th round in the pattern, change to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and work 2 RIDGES - see description above. Loosely bind off. Work one more sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew in the sleeves. Close the hole from the cast on edge mid-back by basting
up and down, then tighten and fasten the thread.

Hej! Jag igen, jag har läst igenom beskrivningen och blir inte klok. Fastnat i meningen ”När rutan mäter ca 36 cm *36 cm osv maskas det av för ärmhål” Det jag inte förstår är hur jag ska mäta rutan, hur, var mäter jag rutan? Antal maskor på varvet är 352 st, 20 m är 10cm, så varvet borde vara ca 176cm, hittar inga rutor att mäta, bara trianglar möjligtvis? Hoppas på hjälp, klarhet.

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 14:30:

Hej, arb får formen av en fyrkant. Du ska mäta längs fyrkantens raka sidor.

Maria Carlsson 26.02.2019 - 09:19:

Hej! Jag får inte ihop antal maskor med mönsterbeskrivningen. Det står att jag ska lägga upp 8-8-8-8 m dvs 32 maskor. diagram A1 börjar med två maskor, när jag sedan räknar alla ökningar, så blir bara ökningarna 120 m står att det ska bli 128m i slutet så vore mest logiskt att lägga upp 2-2-2-2 eller hur är det tänkt att jag ska göra, blir inte klok...

DROPS Design 27.02.2019 kl. 14:29:

Hej, du ska börja med att lägga upp 8 maskor i din storlek, sedan ökas det enligt diagram A.1 som upprepas totalt 4 gånger på varvet.

Also die anderen Anleitung lassen sich alle problemlos ausdrucken. Ich hab mehrere Drucker, und auf jedem druckt es nur die erste Seite. In der Druckvorschau zeigt es auch nur die erste Seite an :(

DROPS Design 19.07.2018 kl. 14:40:

Liebe Frau Stolpe, können Sie uns bitte sagen, welchen Browser/Betriebsystem Sie benutzen?

Andrea Stolpe 19.07.2018 - 09:28:

Hallo, guten morgen. Ich würde mir die Anleitung gerne ausdrucken, aber es funktioniert nur die erste Seite. Mache ich da was falsch oder hat noch jemand das Problem? Liebe Grüße Andrea

DROPS Design 19.07.2018 kl. 09:38:

Liebe Andrea, wir haben gerade diese Anleitung gedruckt und es hat funktionniert, beachten Sie die Einstellungen Ihrer Drucker, damit alle Seiten ausgedruckt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doreen 22.10.2017 - 19:55:

Hallo. Wenn ich mit der Jacke beginne und in Runden stricke, habe ich ja in der Mitte ein Loch, das ist aber nirgends zu sehen. Verschließe ich das am Ende?

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 11:52:

Liebe Doreen, ja genau, am Ende verschließen Sie dieses Loch. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
