INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 211 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 10) = 20.1.
In this example decrease by knitting approx. every 19th and 20th stitch together. Do not decrease over bands.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Begin 5 stitches before marker thread in the side, knit 2 together, knit 6 (marker thread is in the middle of these 6 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 2 stitches before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP-1 (applies to bands):
When working pattern border with two colors on yoke, also work with base color in pattern border over the 5 band stitches in each side.

KNITTING TIP-2:
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Use a larger needle size when working pattern if needed.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn): 1 buttonhole = knit second and third stitch from edge together and make 1 yarn over. On next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to make a hole.
Decrease for buttonholes when piece measures:
S: 3, 11, 19, 26, 34, 41, 49 and 56 cm
M: 3, 11, 19, 27, 35, 43, 51 and 58 cm
L: 3, 12, 20, 28, 36, 44, 52 and 60 cm
XL: 3, 12, 20, 29, 37, 46, 54 and 62 cm /
XXL: 3, 11, 19, 26, 34, 42, 49, 57 and 64 cm .
XXXL: 3, 11, 19, 27, 35, 43, 51, 59 and 66 cm
NOTE! Decrease the last of the 8-8-8-8-9-9 buttonholes approx. in the middle of neck edge.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Body is worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front, bottom up. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, bottom up. Then slip body and sleeves together and work yoke back and forth on circular needle from mid front until finished measurements.
An elevation in the back of neck can be worked to get a better fit so that yoke is somewhat higher in the neck. This elevation can be skipped, to make the neck the same at the front and back - see explanation on elevation in pattern.

BODY:
Cast on 211-231-249-269-295-323 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light gray blue. Work rib as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit all stitches.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 5, * purl 1, knit 1 *, work from *-* until 6 stitches remain on row, purl 1 and finish with knit 5. Repeat 1st and 2nd row until rib measures 3 cm / 1''. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 row from right side while decreasing 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 and remember BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above = 201-221-237-257-281-309 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread 53-58-62-67-73-80 stitches in from each side = 95-105-113-123-135-149 stitches between marker threads on back piece and move marker thread upwards when working.
Purl 1 row from wrong side (knit bands). Then work in stockinette stitch back and forth with 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, in each side towards mid front. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 8 cm / 3 1/8'' 4 times in total in each side = 185-205-221-241-265-293 stitches.
Work until piece measures approx. 36 cm / 14 1/4'' in all sizes. Work next row as follows from right side: Knit 45-50-53-58-63-69 (= front piece), bind off 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches for armhole, knit 79-89-95-105-115-127 (= back piece), bind off 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches for armhole and knit the remaining 45-50-53-58-63-69 stitches (= front piece). Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 44-46-48-52-52-54 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light gray blue. Work rib as follows:
ROUND 1: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 2: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
Repeat 1st and 2nd round until rib measures 3 cm / 1''. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve) and move the marker thread upwards. Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 9-7-9-7-9-7 cm / 3½"-2 3/4"-3½"-2 3/4"-3½"-2 3/4'', increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3½-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm / 1 1/4"-1 1/8"-3/4"-3/4"-½"-½'' 11-13-16-17-19-20 times in total (switch to a short circular needle when there are enough stitches) = 66-72-80-86-90-94 stitches. Continue until sleeve measures 46-45-43-41-40-38 cm / 18"-17 3/4"-17"-16"-15 3/4"-15'' (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke). Work next round as follows: bind off 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches, knit 58-64-70-76-78-80 stitches and bind off the remaining 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches. Put piece aside and make another sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 285-317-341-373-397-425 stitches. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!
Read KNITTING TIP-1 AND KNITTING TIP-2! Continue with light gray blue and purl 1 row from wrong side but knit the bands. Knit 1 row from right side while decreasing 4-6-0-2-6-4 stitches evenly = 281-311-341-371-391-421 stitches.
Work in stockinette stitch back and forth with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. When piece measures 1-2-3-3-4-6 cm / 3/8"-3/4"-1"-1"-1½"-2 ½'' from where body and sleeves were put together, work next row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A until 6 stitches remain on row (= 27-30-33-36-38-41 repetitions of 10 stitches), work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. AT THE SAME TIME on row marked with arrow in A.1A decrease 10-0-10-20-20-30 stitches evenly = 271-311-331-351-371-391 stitches. NOTE! In size S and L decrease in the off white sections.
Work next row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.2A until 6 stitches remain on row (= 13-15-16-17-18-19 repetitions of 20 stitches), work A.2B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this and decrease as shown in A.2A. When A.2 has been worked, there are 141-161-171-181-191-201 stitches on needle.
Now work elevation in the back of neck or start to work the neck edge if you do not want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this paragraph if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker in the middle stitch on needle = mid back. Begin from right side with off white and knit 15-16-17-18-19-20 stitches past stitch with marker, turn, tighten yarn and purl 31-33-35-37-39-41. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 46-49-52-55-58-61, turn, tighten yarn and purl 61-65-69-73-77-81. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 76-81-86-91-96-101, turn, tighten yarn and purl the rest of row (knit band).

NECK EDGE:
Knit 1 row from right side with off white while decreasing 24-40-44-48-54-58 stitches evenly = 117-121-127-133-137-143 stitches. Purl 1 row (knit bands). Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work rib from right side as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* until 6 stitches remain, knit 1 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 3 cm / 1''. Bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Jacket measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' from shoulder and down.

Köszönöm szépen, most már jól látszik minden! :-)

Kedves Adminok! Szeretném elkészíteni ezt a kardigánt, de sajnos nem látom az ábrákat a leírás végén. Több böngészőt is kipróbáltam, de sajnos nem megy. Más minták esetén (pl. 191-21) nem tapasztalok ilyen problémát.

Kedves Nikoletta! Köszönjük a jelzését, a technikai hibát elhárítottuk. Kérjük, próbálja meg újra, a diagramoknak, mintarajzoknak már látszaniuk kell. Sikeres kézimunkázást kívánok!

Jeg får ikke mønsteret i A2 å stemme i Str S. Er det feil ?

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 13:56:

Hei Bodil. Jeg er litt usikker på hva du ikke får til å stemme. Men vi har nå regnet over mønsteret, og det er ikke noe feil med maskeantallet. Etter at A.1 er ferdig er det i størrelse S = 271 masker. Så strikkes 5 stolpemasker, A.2a over de neste 260 maskene (13 rapporter av 20 masker), A.2b over 1 maske, 5 stolpemasker = 271 masker. Mønsteret leses nedenfra og opp, fra høyre mot venstre på rettsiden og omvendt vei på vrangsiden. Fra vrangsiden strikkes det også i motsatt rekkefølge så diagrammene følges oppover. God fornøyelse

Jenny Iversen. 26.02.2018 - 11:28:

Der er fejl i opskriften. Når der skal strikkes mønster, er det byttet rundt på farverne. 🔲 skal være hvid og *️⃣ Skal være lys gråblå.
