----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front. Piece is divided by the armholes where new stitches for the sleeves are cast on. Then the front and back pieces are finished separately, back and forth on needle.

BODY:
Cast on 173-191-209-209-227-245 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm and 1 strand of each colour of Delight and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 3 strands). Work 1 RIDGE – see description above, then work as follows – from the right side: A.2 (10 stitches = band), A.1 over the next 153-171-189-189-207-225 stitches (= 9 repeats of A.1 in width – see diagram for your size), finish with A.3 (10 stitches = band). Continue like this until the piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm. Now place the first and last 44-48-52-52-56-60 stitches on a thread, continue working over the 85-95-105-105-115-125 stitches on back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 40-44-48-48-52-56 new stitches in each side = 165-183-201-201-219-237 stitches. Then work as follows – from the right side: 6 stitches garter stitch, A.1 over the next 153-171-189-189-207-225 stitches (= 9 repeats of A.1 in width), finish with 6 stitches garter stitch. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm (= 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from separation of front and back pieces). Now cast off the middle 17-19-21-21-23-25 stitches on the needle = 74-82-90-90-98-106 stitches left on each shoulder/sleeve. Continue until the piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm, then cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Place the stitches from the right front piece back on the needle = 44-48-52-52-56-60 stitches. Cast on 40-44-48-48-52-56 new stitches at the end of the first row from the right side = 84-92-100-100-108-116 stitches. Work as follows (from the wrong side): 6 stitches garter stitch, A.1 over the next 68-76-84-84-92-100 stitches (= 4 repeats of A.1 in width), finish with A.2. Continue the pattern until the piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm (= 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from separation of front and back pieces). Cast off the first 74-82-90-90-98-106 stitches on the next row from the wrong side, work to end of row (= 10 stitches left on the needle (= band)). Turn the piece and work short rows and garter stitch over the band as follows:
Start from the right side and * work over the first 5 stitches, turn and work back, turn, work over all stitches, turn and work back *, repeat from *-* until the collar measures 8-9-10-10-11-12 cm on the shortest side. Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Place the last 44-48-52-52-56-60 stitches back on the needle. Cast on 40-44-48-48-52-56 new stitches at the end of the first row from the wrong side = 84-92-100-100-108-116 stitches. Work as follows (from the right side): 6 stitches garter stitch, A.1 over the next 68-76-84-84-92-100 stitches (= 4 repeats of A.1 in width), finish with A.3. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm (= 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm from separation of front and back pieces). Cast off the first 74-82-90-90-98-106 stitches on the next row from the right side (= 10 stitches left on the needle (= band)). Turn the piece and work short rows and garter stitch on band as follows:
Start from the wrong side and * work over the first 5 stitches, turn and work back, turn, work over all stitches, turn and work back *, repeat from *-* until the collar measures 8-9-10-10-11-12 cm on the shortest side. Cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew seams under sleeves and shoulder seams. Sew the collar together mid back and sew onto neckline.

TWISTED CORD:
Cut 3 strands of 2 metres (= 1 strand of each colour of Delight and 1 strand Kid-Silk). Twist them together until they begin to resist, thread the cord through one of the holes in the band, approx. 33 cm from the bottom edge, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist. Tie a knot in the end. Do the same on the other band.

Hallo Antje, beim drucken einfach die Einstellung überprüfen und dem Drucker "sagen", dass nur die Seiten gedruckt werden sollen, die Sie benötigen. Sie drücken auf "Anleitung drucken", dann erscheint Ihr Drucker, dort ist meistens ein Punkt bei "alle Seiten" (hier 7 mit Werbung) angeklickt. Sie schreiben in das Feld drunter 1-6 und verzichten somit auf die letzte Seite.

Hallo, die Anleitungen gefallen mir , aber beim ausdrucken habe ich das Problem, das immer zum Schluss 1 Seite mit Werbung ausgedruckt wird. Wie kann ich das vermeiden?
