INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 71 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 7) = 10.1. In this example, work approx. every 9th and 10th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2:
Decrease for neck on inside of the 4 stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are worked from the right side!
Decrease as follows before the 4 stitches in garter stitch: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows after the 4 stitches in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row, purl the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit together 3rd and 4th stitch from edge and make 1 yarn over. On the next row, knit the yarn over = hole.
Work buttonholes when piece measures:
S: 35, 44 and 53 cm
M: 36, 45 and 54 cm
L: 37, 46 and 55 cm
XL: 38, 47 and 56 cm

Haluaisin tehdä ohjeen Andes langasta (lankaryhmä E), niin mikä on langan menekki?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 17:22:

Hei, tähän malliin tarvitset esim. koossa M 10 kerää Andes-lankaa.

KersBee 17.09.2018 - 11:44:

Ich komme nicht zurecht mit de Angaben. Meine Maschenprobe ist zu gross. Mit Nadel Nr. 7 habe ich nog stets 71 cm fuer das Rückenteil. Was kann ich tun?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 17:35:

Liebe KersBee, Die Angabe der Nadelstärke ist nur eine Orientierungshilfe. Wenn für 10 cm mehr Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigt werden, zu einer dickeren Nadelstärke wechseln. Wenn für 10 cm weniger Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigt werden, zu einer dünneren Nadelstärke wechseln. Ihr DROPS Laden wird sicher Tipps für sie haben, Sie können gerne Kontakt mit ihnen aufnehme - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Angel 04.09.2018 - 04:00:

I’m finally finished knitting each piece and have begun sewing the jacket together. I’ve checked my guage twice now and it’s all fine. But my sleeves are too small around to fit into the armhole or even around my arm. I see the diagram shows a sleeve getting much larger and am wondering if there is an error in the pattern? If not I need help. Thank you

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 10:03:

Dear Angel, make sure you kept the correct tension, the sleeves should match the armholes. You can first pin it around armhole before sewing if it helps. See below how to set a sleeve. Happy knitting!

Angel 02.08.2018 - 16:15:

I don\'t understand this part of directions for Back: \" On the next row from the side/armhole, bind off for diagonal shoulder: bind off every 2nd row 12-13-14-15-15-16 stitches 1 time and 12-13-13-14-15-16 stitches 1 time.\" Does this mean to bind off 1 stitch every other row from K side then bind off the remaining 12 stitches?

DROPS Design 03.08.2018 kl. 08:32:

Dear Angel, you will bind off 12 sts at the beginning of next 2 rows beginning from armhole towards neck: at the beg of row from armhole bind off 12 sts, work remaining sts, turn and work return row, then bind off the remaining 12 sts on needle. Happy knitting!

Stefanie Kuboth 30.05.2018 - 18:10:

Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Joanna 25.05.2018 - 11:52:

Hi there!\r\nI am using Polish pattern instruction and I am not sure how to finish the back piece and left&right front pieces. When there are 24 stiches left, should I make one stich out of every two (narrowing the shoulder part), or should I close first twelve stiches 1 time and then close 12 last stiches 2nd time (creating a kind of step) ?

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 13:03:

Dear Joanna, when 24 sts remain, cast off the first 12 sts at the beg of row from side/armholes (towards neck), work row to the end, turn and cast off the remaining 12 sts on next row from side/armhole. Happy knitting!

Susi 10.05.2018 - 13:40:

Gestrickt, angezogen und wohlgefühlt. Die Jacke ist ein Traum und mein Lieblingsteil.

Katharina 13.04.2018 - 18:42:

Hallo, ich habe ein Verständnisproblem bei den Abnahmen für die Schulterschrägung. Bedeutet 14x1 Masche und 13x1 Masche abnehmen, dass in jeder Reihe an der Armausschnittseite insgesamt 2 Maschen abgekettet werden sollen?

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 08:32:

Liebe Katharina, für die Schulterskrägung wird in der 3. Größe 14 Maschen x 1 und dann 13 Maschen x 1 in jede 2. Reihe abgekettet, dh am Anfang jeder Reihe von der Armausschnitt 14 M x 1 und 13 M x 1 abketten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Nicola Griggs 31.03.2018 - 12:55:

I would like to knit this pattern in Drops Air. Do you think this would work and how much yarn and what size needles would I need please?

DROPS Design 01.04.2018 kl. 12:20:

Dear Nicola, yes, you can substitute, and I think it would be lovely. Please check out our lesson about using a different yarn here. To calculate the amount you need please use our yarn converterhere . Please do not forget to knit a sample piece, and wash it, and then check the size and stitch counts of you swatch. You can make the necessary changes in needle size and / or stitch count accordingly. Happy Knitting!

Helena Engborg 13.02.2018 - 22:16:

Kan man inte lika väl sticka med vanliga stickor när man stickar fram o tillbaka? Varför rundstickor? Mycket svårare ju! Med vänlig hälsning, Helena

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 13:33:

Hei Helena. Om du heller ønsker å strikker med parpinner og får plass til alle maskene, så må du gjerne det. God Fornøyelse!
