NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here.

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.

BAND:
Work right band as follows (i.e. the 8 first stitches on needle when working from right side): 2 stitches in garter stitch, knit 1, purl 2, knit 1, purl 2.
Work left band as follows (i.e. the 8 last stitches on needle when working from right side): Purl 2, knit 1, purl 2, knit 1, 2 stitches in garter stitch towards mid front.
Continue bands with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.2).
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

KNITTING TIP:
If you do not want lace pattern up along mid back, work in stocking stitch over the 32-34-38-32-34-38 stitches in A.2 mid back.

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 67 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 10) = 6.7.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. alternately 6th and 7th stitch, on next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
If decreasing knit alternately approx. every 5th and 6th stitch and every 6th and 7th stitch together. Do not increase/decrease over the band stitches.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
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/round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease for raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in every transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches decreased on every decrease row). All decreases are done from the right side!
Begin 3 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn):
1 buttonhole = purl fourth and fifth 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: 2, 9, 16, 22, 29, 36, 42 and 48 cm
M: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 37, 44 and 50 cm
L: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 37, 44 and 52 cm
XL: 2, 9, 16, 24, 31, 38, 46 and 54 cm
XXL: 2, 10, 18, 25, 33, 41, 48 and 56 cm
XXXL: 2, 10, 18, 26, 34, 42, 50 and 58 cm
NOTE! The last of these 8 buttonholes is decreased on first row from right side after picking up stitches for neck edge as explained in pattern.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Body is worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front, bottom up. Work sleeve edges in the round on double pointed needles, bottom up. Then slip body and sleeve edges together and finish yoke back and forth on circular needle from mid front.

BODY:
Cast somewhat loosely on 292-292-292-384-384-384 stitches (including 8 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 3 mm with Flora. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 row from right side and purl 1 row from wrong side with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side.
Work next row as follows from right side: 8 stitches BAND - see explanation above, work A.1 until 8 stitches remain on row (= 12-12-12-16-16-16 repetitions of 23 stitches), and finish with 8 stitches BAND. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and remember BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above.
When A.1 has been worked, there are 208-220-244-272-288-320 stitches on needle. Insert 1 marker thread 56-59-65-72-76-84 stitches in from each side (= 96-102-114-128-136-152 stitches between marker threads on back piece).
Work next row as follows from right side: Work 8 stitches band as before, A.2 (= 32-34-38-32-34-38 stitches), 48-51-57-80-85-95 stitches in stocking stitch, A.2 (= 32-34-38-32-34-38 stitches mid back – read KNITTING TIP), 48-51-57-80-85-95 stitches in stocking stitch, A.2 (= 32-34-38-32-34-38 stitches) and finish with 8 stitches band as before. Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm on the shortest, decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2-2-4-4-4-4 cm a total of 3-3-2-2-2-2 times in each side = 196-208-236-264-280-312 stitches.
When piece measures 22-20-20-22-20-20 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2 cm 5-6-6-5-6-6 times in total in each side = 216-232-260-284-304-336 stitches.
Work until piece measures 32 cm on the shortest in all sizes.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work 53-57-63-69-73-80 stitches as before (= front piece), cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches for armhole, work 90-98-110-122-130-144 stitches as before (= back piece), cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches for armhole and work the remaining 53-57-63-69-73-80 stitches as before (= front piece). Put piece aside and work the sleeve edges.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Cast on 67-75-83-89-93-99 stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Flora. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH in the round - see explanation above. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm, knit 1 round while increasing 10 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 77-85-93-99-103-109 stitches. Work next round as follows: Knit 37-41-45-48-50-53 (knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes), A.3 (= 3 stitches), knit 37-41-45-48-50-53.
Work next round as follows: Cast off 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches, knit 67-75-81-87-89-93 stitches and cast off the remaining 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches. Cut the yarn. Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve edge the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeve edges on to same needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working the stitches first) = 330-362-398-434-454-490 stitches on needle. Remove the marker threads in piece. Insert 1 marker thread in every transition between body and sleeve edges (= 4 new marker threads).
Begin from right side, continue back and forth in stocking stitch and A.2 as before with 8 stitches band in each side as before. Continue in addition A.3 over the middle 3 stitches on each sleeve.
When 2 rows have been worked back and forth over all stitches, begin decrease for RAGLAN on next row from the right side - see explanation above.
Decrease for raglan every 4th row (i.e. every other row from right side) 6-5-4-4-6-7 times in total and then every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 17-22-27-30-30-31 times in total.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm, slip the outermost 21-21-23-26-28-33 stitches in each side towards mid front on 1 stitch holder for neck, i.e. this is done at the beginning of the next 2 rows but work them before slipping them on stitch holder to avoid cutting the yarn.
Continue back and forth as before and cast off for neck at the beginning of every row in each side as follows: Cast off 3 stitches 1 time and 2 stitches 1 time. Then cast off 1 stitch at the beginning of every row in each side until decreases for raglan are finished. After all decreases for raglan and cast offs for neck, approx. 92-92-92-98-98-108 stitches remain on needle.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 146-146-150-162-166-186 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holders at the front) on a circular needle size 2.5 mm. Knit 1 row from wrong side. Then 1 knit row from right side while decreasing evenly to 136-136-140-150-154-160 stitches, i.e. decrease approx. 10-10-10-12-12-26 stitches – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP and remember to decrease for last buttonhole on this row.
Knit 1 row from wrong side, knit 1 row from right side and knit 1 row from wrong side. Cast off knitting from right side. Jacket measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from shoulder and down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew the buttons on to the left band.

In the sleeve instructions it mentions A3. I can’t find a chart or diagram explanation as to what A3 is. Can you help please?

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 10:57:

Dear Patsy3cats , A.3 is a small diagram you will find on the left side of diagram A.1 to size L + XXXL and is worked over 3 sts and 6 rows. Happy knitting!

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:55:

Bonjour Mme Vergobbi, tout à fait, DROPS Flora fait 50 g la pelote (cf nuancier), il vous faudra donc 5 pelotes en taille XL. Bon tricot!

Dette er den eneste muligheten jeg har til å uttrykke min skuffelse over at genseren med blå og hvite felt, ca 20-25 cm, ikke ble stemt inn. Det fatter jeg ikke for genseren var nydelig. Er det noen mulighet for at jeg kan få eller få kjøpt mønsteret likevel??? Ønsker så veldig å strikke denne.

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

Ormi 16.01.2018 - 21:55:

Me hat absolut recht. Endlich mal ne ältere Frau in einer großen Größe. Da kann man eher entscheiden, ob das Modell zu einem passt. Man sieht auch direkt, dass die Ärmelchen länger sein müssen!

Jane Höglund 13.01.2018 - 10:29:

En underbar sommarkofta. Längtar efter att få sticka den då mönstret kommer ut.

Me 09.01.2018 - 12:16:

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