Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE TIP-1:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole. Work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 93 stitches), minus edge stitches in garter stitch (e.g. 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 17) = 5.3. In this example increase after approx. every 5th stitch and do not increase over stitches in garter stitch.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 45 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 6.4. In this example knit approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Piece is worked back and forth on circular needle, top down, in several parts and sewn tog when finished. The sleeves are worked back and forth on circular needle, bottom up.

BACK PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows:
Cast on 28-30-32-34-36-38 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch (= towards the neck), knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch (= towards armhole).
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, purl until 2 stitches remain, 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Cut the yarn and put piece aside.
Work left shoulder as follows:
Cast on 28-30-32-34-36-38 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 1 ridge. Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch (= towards armhole), knit until 2 stitches remain, 2 edge stitches in garter stitch (= towards the neck).
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, purl until 1 stitch remains, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

Now work right and left shoulder together as follows: Turn piece (= left shoulder) and work as before over the 28-30-32-34-36-38 stitches, cast on 15-15-17-17-19-19 new stitches at the end of row (= neck), then work the 28-30-32-34-36-38 stitches on right shoulder on to needle = 71-75-81-85-91-95 stitches for back piece. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work the new stitches cast on for neck mid back in garter stitch, work the other stitches on back piece in stocking stitch and in garter stitch as before (i.e. work the middle 19-19-21-21-23-23 stitches + 1 edge stitch in each side in garter stitch, work the remaining stitches in stocking stitch). When 2 ridges have been worked over the new stitches, continue in stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 12-13-13-14-14-13 cm from cast-on edge, cast on new stitches at the end of every row in each side for armhole as follows: Cast on 1 stitch 2-1-2-2-2-3 times, 2 stitches 1-2-2-3-4-5 times and 4 stitches 1 time = 87-93-101-109-119-129 stitches.
Continue in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 4 cm from the last stitches cast on for armhole, increase 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side - read INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every 14-15-15-16-17-17 cm 3 times in total = 93-99-107-115-125-135 stitches. Continue until piece measures 49-52-54-56-59-61 cm from shoulder and down.
Now increase 17-16-18-20-20-25 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly) = 110-115-125-135-145-160 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Work rib from right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, (knit 3/purl 2) until 4 stitches remain on row, knit 3, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When rib measures 5 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Piece measures approx. 54-57-59-61-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

Work the new stitches for armhole in stocking stitch.
When piece measures 4 cm from the last stitches cast on for armhole, increase 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the side. Increase like this every 14-15-15-16-17-17 cm 3 times in total. When all increases are done there are 91-97-102-108-116-123 stitches. Piece measures approx. 49-52-54-56-59-61 cm from shoulder and down. Now increase 20-19-24-28-30-38 stitches evenly = 111-116-126-136-146-161 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm.

Jeg forstår ikke udtagningen på højre forstykke før mønster A1 skal der både 1maske ud +2 masker ret så kommer der alt for mange masker?

DROPS Design 21.06.2018 kl. 14:28:

Hei Bente. Du skal kun øke 1 maske før A.1. Altså, du skal øke fra rettsiden, før du strikker A.1 etterfulgt av de 2 maskene med rille. God fornøyelse.

Cornelia 24.04.2018 - 19:24:

Bei den Vorderteilen soll man 1 Masche vor A.1 + 2 kraus rechten Maschen zunehmen. Heißt das, daß ich eine Masche vor A.1 und eine weitere vor den beiden Randmaschen zunehme (und umgekehrt beim linken Vorderteil) oder nehme ich 1 Masche zwischen A.1 und den Randmaschen zu?

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 08:02:

Liebe Cornelia, die Zunahmen werden am Ende der Glatt-rechts gestrickten Partie gestrickt, Sie stricken bis die Maschen A.1 bleiben, dann nehmen Sie 1 M zu, und beenden die Reihe mit A.1 und 2 M krausrippe (= rechtes Vorderteil). Beim linken Vorderteil werden Sie am Anfang der Glattrechts Partie zunehmen, dh: 2 M krausrippe, A.2, Zunahme, und die übrigen Maschen stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Oksana 11.04.2018 - 20:24:

It is written: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, (knit 3/purl 2) until 5 stitches remain, knit 3, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Question: if 5 left -K 3 +1 edge..where is another stitch

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 08:41:

Dear Oksana, it looks like you should work on left front piece until 4 sts remain and knit 3, 1 st in garter st. Our Design Team has been informed , a correction should come soon. Happy knitting!
