INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 to A.3).
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (for increases on yoke):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 143 stitches) minus the band stitches (e.g. 10 stitches = 133 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 24) = 5.54.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over alternately after approx. every 5th and 6th stitch. On the next row, work the yarn overs twisted into the pattern to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for increases on body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased), increase like this at both marker threads (= a total of 4 stitches increased). The yarn overs are not worked twisted on the next row, there will be holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on the right band (when the garment is worn): Work from the right side until there are 3 stitches left on the row, make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together and knit the last stitch. On the next row knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
The first buttonhole is worked when the piece measures approx. 1½-2 cm / ½"-3/4''. Then work the other 5-5-5-6-6-6 buttonholes with approx. 8½ cm / 3 1/4'' between each.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The yoke and body are worked back and forth, top down. The short sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 126-130-136-142-149-154 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and BabyMerino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. The next row is worked as follows – from the right side: Work 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band), knit 22-23-25-26-27-29 stitches and increase 1-3-1-2-3-2 stitches evenly over these stitches – read INCREASE TIP-1, * 1 yarn over, knit 2-2-1-1-1-1 *, work from *-* over the next 14 stitches (= 7-7-14-14-14-14 stitches increased), knit 44-46-48-52-57-58 stitches and increase 1-5-1-5-8-5 stitches evenly over these stitches, * 1 yarn over, knit 2-2-1-1-1-1 *, work from *-* over the next 14 stitches (= 7-7-14-14-14-14 stitches increased), knit 22-23-25-26-27-29 stitches and increase 1-3-1-2-3-2 stitches evenly over these stitches and finish with 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band) = 143-155-167-179-191-191 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side (the yarn overs are knitted twisted to avoid holes). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Remember BUTTONHOLES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band), A.1a (= 12 stitches), work A.2a (= 12 stitches) over the next 108-120-132-144-156-156 stitches (= 9-10-11-12-13-13 times in width), A.3a (= 13 stitches) and finish with 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band). Continue the pattern like this AT THE SAME TIME as you increase evenly on each row marked with an increase arrow as follows:
Each time you increase 12 stitches, work A.2 one more time in width.
Each time you increase 24 stitches, work A.2 two more times in width.
Each time you increase 36 stitches, work A.2 three more times in width.
INCREASE 1: Increase 24-24-24-24-24-36 stitches = 167-179-191-203-215-227 stitches.
INCREASE 2: Increase 24-24-24-24-24-36 stitches = 191-203-215-227-239-263 stitches.
INCREASE 3: Increase 24 stitches = 215-227-239-251-263-287 stitches.
INCREASE 4: Increase 24 stitches = 239-251-263-275-287-311 stitches.
INCREASE 5: Increase 24 stitches = 263-275-287-299-311-335 stitches.
INCREASE 6: Increase 24 stitches = 287-299-311-323-335-359 stitches.
When A.1a to A.3a have been worked 1 time in height, the piece measures approx. 14 cm / 5½'' from the neck edge. Now work A.1b over A.1a, A.2b over A.2a and A.3b over A.3a and continue to increase as follows:
INCREASE 7: Increase 12-24-24-24-24-24 stitches = 299-323-335-347-359-383 stitches.
INCREASE 8: Increase 12-12-24-24-24-24 stitches = 311-335-359-371-383-407 stitches.
INCREASE 9: Increase 12-12-24-24-24-24 stitches = 323-347-383-395-407-431 stitches.
INCREASE 10: Increase 12-12-12-12-24-24 stitches = 335-359-395-407-431-455 stitches.
The increases are now finished in sizes S, M and L, but continue in sizes XL, XXL and XXXL as follows:
INCREASE 11: Increase 12-24-24 stitches = 419-455-479 stitches.
INCREASE 12: Increase 12-12-24 stitches = 431-467-503 stitches.

ALL SIZES:
= 335-359-395-431-467-503 stitches (A.2b is now repeated 25-27-30-33-36-39 times in width).
Work pattern until the piece measures 20-22-23-25-27-29 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½'' from the cast on edge. Now divide the body and sleeves on the next row from the right side as follows: (The stitches which do not fit into the pattern are worked in the same way as the first stitch in A.1b). Work 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band), pattern as before over the next 44-49-53-60-66-73 stitches (= front piece), place the next 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 10 new stitches on the needle (= side under the sleeve), work pattern as before over the next 89-99-107-121-133-147 stitches (= back piece), place the next 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 10 new stitches on the needle (= side under the sleeve) and work pattern as before over the next 44-49-53-60-66-73 stitches, finishing with 5 stitches in garter stitch (= band = front piece).
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 207-227-243-271-295-323 stitches. Continue with pattern and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side of the piece; the stitches which do not fit into the pattern are worked in the same way as the first stitch in A.1b. When A.1b to A.3b have been worked 1 time in height, the piece measures approx. 27-27-27-30-30-30 cm / 10½"-10½"-10½"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-11 3/4''. Continue with stockinette stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side of the piece.
Insert 1 marker thread 54-59-63-70-76-83 stitches in from each side (= front pieces = 99-109-117-131-143-157 stitches on back piece).
On the next row from the right side increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread – read INCREASE TIP-2! Increase like this every 4th row until the piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm / 12½"-12½"-13"-13"-13"-13'' from where the body was divided from the sleeves = approx. 287-311-335-359-391-423 stitches. Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5. Work the next row as follows from the right side: Work 5 stitches in garter stitch, work A.4 until there are 6 stitches left, work A.5 over the next stitch and 5 stitches in garter stitch. When A.4 and A.5 have been worked 1 time in height, the piece measures approx. 35-35-36-36-36-36 cm / 13 3/4"-13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4'' from where the body was divided from the sleeves and approx. 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm / 21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½'' from the neck edge. Bind off (make sure you bind off loosely; you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary).

SLEEVE EDGES:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Place the 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 84-86-96-100-106-110 stitches. Continue with A.2b over the stitches which fit the pattern; the stitches which do not fit the pattern mid under sleeve are knitted when the stitches are knitted and purled when the stitches are purled. When the sleeve edge measures 3 cm / 1'' from where the sleeve was divided from the body (adjust so that you finish neatly in relation to the pattern) change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Then bind off, make sure you bind off loosely; you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary. Work the other sleeve edge in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons onto the left band.

Werden bei den Zunahmen am Rumpfteil immer 4 Machen zwischen den Umschlägen gestrickt? Oder immer 2 Maschen mehr, so dass ein Keil entsteht?

DROPS Design 29.06.2018 kl. 11:45:

Liebe Frau Klug, es sind immer 4 Maschen zwischen den Zunahmen auf beiden Seiten am Rumpfteil. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kate Andersen 08.03.2018 - 00:51:

Kan det virkelig passe der står under “udtagningstips” at omslagene strikkes IKKE drejet på næste pind, de skal lave hul!!?? men det er jo i siden mellem forstykker og ryg og ikke en del af et hulmønster!! Så jeg forstår slet ikke hvorfor der skulle være et hul på hver 4. Pind ned langs siden?? Måske det er en fejl??? Håber jeg får hurtig svar, da jeg gerne vil videre. På forhånd TAK. Mvh Kate Andersen

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 09:40:

Hei Kate. Det er riktig slik det står i oppskriften. Det skal lages hull i sidene (2 hull i hver side), slik at det blir et flott hullmønster samtidig som det økes fra ermhullen og ned. Hullmønstret vises dessverre ikke på bildet, men om du ser på oppskrift nr 186 / 37 Taormina Top, vil du se litt av mønstret. God Fornøyelse!

Lisäyskierroksen jälkeen, tuleeko uusi mallikerta mihin kohtaan neuletta?

DROPS Design 22.03.2018 kl. 14:32:

Hei, lisäykset tehdään aina nurjilla kerroksilla (oikealta puolelta katsottuna). Tämän jälkeen työhön tulee aina enemmän piirroksen A.2 mallikertoja ja nämä mallikerrat neulotaan piirrosten A.1 ja A.3 mallikertojen sisäpuolelle kuten aiemmin. Eli toistat vain piirroksen A.2 mallikertaa yhden, kahden tai kolmen ylimääräisen kerran.

Wunderbar, dass es neben diesen ganzen abgemagerten Plastikpüppchen auch einmal eine echte Frau gibt, die die Modelle präsentiert. Da bekommt man endlich eine Vorstellung davon, wie sie in Wirklichkeit aussehen könnten. Bitte, behalten Sie diese Dame unbedingt unter Ihren Models!!!

If using different models for the photoshoots, then models of all ages should be used not only very young or granny models. Some clothing simply does no suit everyone due to bodytype and /or age

I love it, please include it.

Hannelore 10.01.2018 - 19:00:

Echt toll , dass es auch für nicht so ganz schlanke Frauen schöne Strickkleidung gibt. Kanns kaum erwarten bis die Anleitung kommt

Me 09.01.2018 - 12:14:

How nice to see a real woman for a change! Yes, some patterns are only suited to the very young - but many are not.

Tina Olsen 18.12.2017 - 17:27:

How wonderful that you are using models of all ages!
