INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

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

INCREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 98 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 17) = 5.2.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 5th stitch (do not increase over bands). On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.9. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.2, A.4, A.5, A.7 and A.8). Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase for raglan on each side of A.3 in every transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on every increase row). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row (wrong side) purl yarns over to make holes.
Work the increased stitches in stocking stitch on sleeves and according to diagram on front and back piece.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeves):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Begin 4 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 4 (marker is between these 4 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to purl sections on body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch in every purl section by making 1 yarn over before all 2 purl stitches. On next row (wrong side) knit yarn over twisted to avoid hole.
On next increase make 1 yarn over after every 3 purl stitches. Continue increase by alternately increasing at beginning and end of purl section.

INCREASE TIP-3 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Begin 3 stitches before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 6 (marker thread is in the middle of these 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-4 (applies to sections in stocking stitch over A.7/A.8 on body):
All increases are done from the right side.
When A.7/A.8 has been done, work in stocking stitch over the 9-9-9-11-11-11 stitches with lace pattern. Increase over these 9-9-9-11-11-11 stitches as follows: Work 1 stitch in stocking stitch, make 1 yarn over, work in stocking stitch until 1 stitch in stocking stitch remains, make 1 yarn over, work 1 stitch in stocking stitch. On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). 1 buttonhole = work from right side until 3 stitches remain on needle, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and finish by knitting 1. On next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to make a hole.
Decrease for first buttonhole on first row from right side after edge in garter stitch in neck. Then decrease the next 6-6-6-7-7-7 buttonholes, approx. 7-7-7½-7-7½-7½ cm between each.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Work back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 98-102-106-110-114-118 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 17-13-9-15-11-7 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 and remember BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above = 115-115-115-125-125-125 stitches. Purl 1 row from wrong side inside 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work yoke as explained below.

YOKE:
Work first row as follows from right side: Work 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 7 stitches), A.2 (= 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work A.3 (= 8 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch (= sleeve cap), make 1 yarn over, work A.3, make 1 yarn over, work A.4 (= 35-35-35-41-41-41 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work A.3, make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch (= sleeve cap), make 1 yarn over, work A.3, make 1 yarn over, work A.5 (= 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches), work A.6 (= 7 stitches) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front = 129-129-129-139-139-139 stitches (including yarn overs in A.1/A.3/A.6).
Continue pattern like this. AT THE SAME TIME on every row from right side increase for RAGLAN - see explanation above, until increase has been done 14-18-20-21-24-26 times on each side of A.3 (including increases on first row from right side after neck edge). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
NOTE! When A.2/A.4/A.5 has been worked, continue pattern the same way, but work the next increased stitches on each side of A.3 in stocking stitch. In size S the increases for raglan is done when 3 rows remain in A.2/A.4/A.5, continue pattern without increase as explained below.
After last increase for raglan there are 237-269-285-303-327-343 stitches on needle if it is on a row with 7/8/7 stitches in A.1/A.3/A.6 or 243-275-291-309-333-349 stitches if it is on a row with 8/9/8 stitches in A.1/A.3/A.6.
Continue pattern as before without increases for raglan until piece measures 17-19-21-23-25-27 cm from cast-on edge mid front, but finish so that last row is a row with 7/8/7 stitches in A.1/A.3/A.6.
Work next row as follows from right side: Continue with band, pattern and in stocking stitch as before over the first 37-41-43-47-51-55 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 49-57-61-62-66-66 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), continue in stocking stitch and pattern as before over the next 65-73-77-85-93-101 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 49-57-61-62-66-66 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve) and continue in stocking stitch, pattern and band over the remaining 37-41-43-47-51-55 stitches (= front piece). Finish body and sleeves separately.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 153-169-181-197-217-237 stitches (including yarn overs in A.1/A.6). Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under sleeve in each side and move the marker threads upwards when working.
Begin from wrong side and work 1 row with garter stitch over garter stitch, purl over purl, knit over knit.
Work next row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, continue A.1 (= 7 or 8 stitches), work A.7 over the next 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches (= 2 repetitions of 11-11-11-13-13-13 stitches, continue on correct row in diagram where pattern was finished at division), work in stocking stitch over the next 13-21-27-26-36-46 stitches, A.8 over the next 55-55-55-65-65-65 stitches (= 5 repetitions of 11-11-11-13-13-13 stitches, continue on correct diagram), purl 2, 13-21-27-26-36-46 stitches in stocking stitch, A.8 over the next 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches (= 2 repetitions of 11-11-11-13-13-13 stitches, continue on correct row in diagram), continue A.6 (= 7 or 8 stitches) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front. Continue the pattern like this – READ THE REST OF BODY BEFORE CONTINUING!

DECREASE IN THE SIDES:
When piece measures 1 cm from division, decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 5 times in total in each side = 131-147-159-175-195-215 stitches (without yarn overs in A.1/A.6).

INCREASE IN PURL SECTIONS:
When piece measures 6 cm from division, increase 1 stitch in every purl section marked with arrow in diagram (i.e. increase in all purl sections except the one purl section closest mid front in each side = 12 stitches increased) – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 5 cm 6 times in total in every purl section (there are now 8 stitches in each of these purl sections).

INCREASE IN THE SIDES:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 7 cm from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read INCREASE TIP-3 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 6 cm 3 times in total in each side.

INCREASE IN STOCKING STITCH SECTIONS:
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 15 cm from division, finish A.7 and A.8 after one whole repetition vertically. Then work knit over knit and purl over purl over these stitches. On next row from right side increase 2 stitches in each stocking stitch section over A.7/A.8 - read INCREASE TIP-4 (= 18 stitches increased).
Repeat this increase after 2 cm (= 18 stitches increased).

When all increases are done there are 251-267-279-295-315-335 stitches on row (without yarn overs in A.1/A.6). Continue with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl until piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm from shoulder and down, but adjust so that next row is worked from right side.
Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 2 ridges back and forth over all stitches. Switch back to circular needle size 5 mm and cast loosely off by knitting from right side. Jacket measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 49-57-61-62-66-66 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles or a short circular needle size 5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 55-63-69-70-76-78 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches under sleeve and begin round here. Work in stocking stitch in the round.
When piece measures 2-2-2-2-3-3 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3½-2½-2-1½-1-1 cm 7-10-12-12-14-14 times in total = 41-43-45-46-48-50 stitches.
Continue until sleeve measures 26-25-24-21-20-19 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke).
Knit 1 round while adjusting number of stitches to 40-40-40-48-48-48. Work A.9 in the round (= 5-5-5-6-6-6 repetitions of 8 stitches). When A.9 has been worked, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work 2 ridges in the round. Switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm and cast off by knitting. Sleeve measures approx. 30-29-28-25-24-23 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Wat moet ik doen in de 1ste toer met de volle vierkantjes van A4. Volgens de uitleg is dat geen steek en sla je het over. Maar snap dit dus niet! Moet ik die steken dan gewoon afhalen en niet breien?

DROPS Design 09.08.2018 kl. 08:21:

Dag Rita, Nee, je doet niks hiermee, dus ook niet afhalen. Deze steek staat ook niet op je naald. De eerstvolgende steek op je linker naald is de steek in het telpatroon na het zwarte blokje.

Martine 24.07.2018 - 16:34:

Bonjour, je suis perdue : combien y a t il de plis à la fin du tricot (bas de gilet) ? Combien de mailles par pli sur l'endroit et combien sur l'envers ? merci.

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:10:

Bonjour Martine, pouvez-vous indiquer la taille que vous tricotez? Ce sera ainsi plus facile de vous donner le décompte. Merci!

MIRIAM 29.04.2018 - 23:49:

¡HERMOSO!

Willy Van Schouwen 08.04.2018 - 13:34:

Wordt de mouwkop , beginnende met 2 tricotsteken, steeds uitgebreid met tricotsteken, dus de omslagen in de voorgaande naalden steeds in tricotsteek meebreien?

Janet Norman 01.03.2018 - 10:41:

186-7 the pattern is stumping me, di you work from the top of the chart to the bottom? And to increase in the purl section, is that the squares of 4 running up the side of the chart, I’m really confused

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 11:35:

Dear Mrs Norman, read the diagrams starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS. The increase in the purl sections are made in the P-sections in diagram with an arrow at the top (A.2,A.5,A.1,A.6, A.4). Happy knitting!

Anette Gustafsen 17.02.2018 - 19:11:

Ok. Men forstår det ikke men omslagene manglede på det mønster jeg printede ud. Fandt selv ud af det.

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 14:44:

Hej igen Anette, ja men det er fint - god fornøjelse!

Anette Gustafsen 14.02.2018 - 18:46:

Der er fejl i diagram A4 str XL-XXL i venstre side på pind 17-19-21-23 der mangler et omslag. Vh. Anette

DROPS Design 16.02.2018 kl. 16:28:

Hej Anette, Det kan jeg ikke lige se... der er et omslag på hver side at de masker som strikkes sammen og det er tegnet ind i diagrammet. Vil du prøve igen eller forklare nærmere. God fornøjelse!

Karen Roed Jensen 14.02.2018 - 12:23:

Nej det er ikke godt nok svar. Jeg skrev at jeg skal bruke A5. Så når jeg kommer til A1 hvor der står følgende (=7 masker). A2 (=10 masker), lag 1 kast osv osv er det jeg skal strikke? Eller skal jeg helt ned hvor der står A5(=10 masker), STRIKK A6(=7 masker) OSV Hvor skal jeg starte?????

Karen Roed Jensen 13.02.2018 - 21:45:

Jeg forstår simpelthen ikke bærestykketjeg har str. A5. Etter de 5 stplpemasker ved jeg ikke hvor jeg skal fortsætte. Hjelp meg - tak

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 06:20:

Hei Karen, Du skal strikke A.1 - A.6 på pinnen i den rekkefølge beskrevet i oppskriften, med kast og glattstrikk imellom. Etter første omgang med mønster skal du fortsette med samme rekkefølgen og øke til raglan samtidig, som beskrevet på toppen av oppskriften. Når du er ferdig med A.1 - A.6 skal du fortsette mønsteret slik og strikke kastene i glattstrikk til lengden du trenger i din størrelse. Håper dette hjelper og god fornøyelse!

Marielle 02.02.2018 - 12:11:

Ik hoop dat dit patroon snel online komt! Ik zou er zo graag al mee willen starten!
