Pattern instructions

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

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. 

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. 

All decreases are worked from the right side.
Decrease as follows before the marker thread: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread:
Knit 2 together, knit 1, marker thread.
Decrease as follows after the marker thread: Marker thread, knit 1, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

If the knitting gauge is not correct in height and you work too tightly, the raglan decreases will be too short and the armhole too small. This can be adjusted for by working 1 extra round without decreases regularly between decreases. 

Increase as follows mid under sleeve – start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

Work buttonholes on the right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from the edge together and make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn over = hole.
Work buttonholes when the piece measures:
S: 11, 20, 29, 38, 47 and 56 cm
M: 11, 20, 29, 38, 47 and 58 cm
L: 11, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 cm
XL: 11, 19, 27, 35, 44, 53 and 62 cm
XXL: 11, 19, 28, 37, 46, 55 and 64 cm
XXXL: 12, 21, 30, 39, 48, 57 and 66 cm

The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, from mid front. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles; change to short circular needle when there are enough stitches. The parts are put together and the yoke is worked back and forth with raglan decreases.

The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, from mid front.
Cast on 170-182-198-212-234-254 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and Paris. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, then work as follows – from the right side:
5 stitches garter stitch (= band), A.1 (= 17 stitches), knit 47-53-61-68-79-89, A.2 (= 32 stitches), knit 47-53-61-68-79-89, A.1, 5 stitches garter stitch (= band). Insert 2 marker threads in the piece, 45-48-52-56-61-66 stitches in from each side (back piece = 80-86-94-100-112-122 stitches). Continue the pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread (= 4 stitches decreased), decrease every 6 cm / 2 3/8'' a total of 6 times = 146-158-174-188-210-230 stitches. Work BUTTONHOLES on right band – see description above. When the piece measures 40-40-41-41-41-41 cm / 15 5/8"-15 5/8"-16 1/8"-16 1/8"-16 1/8"-16 1/8" bind off 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches in each side (= 3-3-4-4-5-6 stitches on each side of the marker threads). There are now 62-68-74-80-90-98 stitches on the back piece and 36-39-42-46-50-54 stitches on each front piece. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves. 

The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles; change to short circular needle when there are enough stitches. Cast on 38-38-40-42-44-46 stitches with double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and Paris. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above, then work stockinette stitch. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve). When the piece measures 6-6-6-6-4-6 cm / 2¼"-2¼"-2¼"-2¼"-1½"-2¼" increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase every 3-2-1½-1½-1½-1 cm/ 1”-¾”-½“-½“-½“-3/8” a total of 8-12-14-15-15-16 times = 54-62-68-72-74-78 stitches. When the piece measures 33-31-31-29-28-26 cm / 13"-12 1/8"-12 1/8"-11 3/8"-11"-10 1/8" (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of longer yoke) bind off the middle 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches under the sleeve = 48-56-60-64-64-66 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work 1 more sleeve.

Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body, where the stitches were bind off for the armholes = 230-258-278-300-318-338 stitches. Insert a marker thread in all transitions between body and sleeves. Continue with pattern and stockinette stitch as before and decrease to RAGLAN – see description above. Decreases are different on body and sleeves. Decrease as follows:

Decrease 1 stitch on each side of each sleeve (= 2 stitches decreased on each sleeve each time). Decrease every 4th row 4-2-2-2-4-5 times, then every 2nd row 13-19-21-23-21-21 times = a total of 17-21-23-25-25-26 times.

Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the back piece and 1 stitch on each front piece towards the sleeve (= 2 stitches decreased on back piece and 1 stitch decreased on each front piece each time). Decrease every 4th row 8-9-9-8-8-7 times then every 2nd row 5-5-7-11-13-17 times = a total of 13-14-16-19-21-24 times. 

After all the decreases there are 110-118-122-124-134-138 stitches on the needle. Work 2 ridges over all stitches; on the first row decrease 12-16-16-16-18-20 stitches evenly on row = 98-102-106-108-116-118 stitches. Bind off. The jacket measures a total of 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm / 24 3/8"-25 1/8"-26"-26¾"-27½"-28¼" from the shoulder.

Sew openings under the sleeves. Sew buttons onto the left band.

Hej! Jag letar efter ett cardigan / koftmönster i Alpaca Silk brushed (Drops), där man stickar rbakstycke för sig och framstyckena för sig. Tycker plaggen håller formen bättre och inte blir så lätt säckiga som när man stickar allt-i-ett... Men jag hittar ingeet sådant mönster. Finns det? Mvh Inga Olausson

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 11:33:

Hej. Vi har t.ex mönster 201-21 som är stickat på det sättet. Du kan söka på kofta och Brushed alpaca silk för att få upp alla mönster i det garnet som vi har. Mvh DROPS Design

Bardzo mi się podoba wzór swetra.

Diane Michaud 29.03.2018 - 19:59:

Bonjour j'attends toujours la réponse pour ma question sur la diminution de la manche ..Elle quelle se fait au même endroit que celle du dos et devant près des marqueurs..

DROPS Design 30.03.2018 kl. 12:02:

Bonjour Mme Michaud, vous allez diminuer à un rythme différent sur les manches et sur le dos/les devants, les diminutions vont se faire: à la fin du devant droit/des manches/du dos avant le marqueur (cf RAGLAN) et/ou au début des manches/dos/devant gauche. On diminue 2 m sur chaque manche et sur le dos et 1 m sur chaque devant. En fonction de la taille vous diminuerez soit 8 m (= sur chaque partie) soit seulement 4 m (= manches seulement ou dos/devants). Bon tricot!

Diane Michaud 28.03.2018 - 18:05:

Bonjour une petite question mes manches sont ajoutées avec le reste sur la même broche circulaire avec le reste du tricot je voudrais comment ce fait la diminution reglan pour la manche je comprends pas car j\\\'ai mis un marqueur des deux côtés des manches pour la diminution reglan dos et devant mais pour les manche ? Merci

Diane Michaud 15.03.2018 - 01:01:

J'aimerais savoir ...Ce gilet se tricote de bas en haut ?

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 08:28:

Bonjour Mme Michaud, tout à fait, on tricote de bas en haut en commençant par le dos et les devants tricotés d'une seule pièce jusqu'aux emmanchures. On met ensuite en attente pour tricoter les manches, et on reprend ensuite toutes les pièces pour tricoter l'empiècement. Bon tricot!
