----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle. The body is worked first, then stitches are cast on for sleeves and the front and back pieces are finished separately.

BODY:
Cast on (111) 125-145-157-173 (181-205) stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and BabyMerino. Work as follows from the right side: Work (3) 2-4-2-2 (2-2) stitches GARTER STITCH – see description above – (= band), work A.1 (= 8 stitches) over the next (104) 120-136-152-168 (176-200) stitches (= (13) 15-17-19-21 (22-25) times in width), work A.2 (= 1 stitch) and finish with (3) 2-4-2-2 (2-2) stitches garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! On the last row in A.1 adjust the number of stitches to (112) 124-146-158-172 (182-204) stitches.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, continue in garter stitch to finished length. The piece measures approx. (10) 12-16-16-16 (19-19) cm.
Insert 1 marker (34) 37-44-48-52 (55-62) stitches in from each side. Allow the markers to follow your work onwards, they mark the front and back pieces = (44) 50-58-62-68 (72-80) stitches on back piece.

READ THE WHOLE OF THE NEXT SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! DECREASE FOR NECK INSIDE 1 BAND STITCH IN EACH SIDE OF THE PIECE AT THE SAME TIME AS THE PIECE IS DIVIDED AND STITCHES ARE CAST ON FOR SLEEVES.
DECREASE MID FRONT AS FOLLOWS:
When the piece measures (10) 12-16-16-17 (20-23) cm – adjust so that the next row is worked from the right side, decrease 1 stitch for the neck inside the 1 band stitch in each side of the piece (= 2 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2nd row a total of (18) 18-22-24-26 (28-32) times, then every 4th row a total of 2 times.
THE PIECE IS NOW DIVIDED AND STITCHES ARE CAST ON FOR THE SLEEVES AS FOLLOWS:
RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
When the piece measures (12) 15-19-20-21 (24-27) cm, divide the piece at the 2 markers and the front and back pieces are finished separately. Adjust so that the next row is from the right side. Now work over all the stitches as far as the first marker (= right front piece). Place the remaining stitches on a thread.
Cast on new stitches at the end of each row from the right side (= towards the side) for the sleeve as follows: Cast on (3) 4-6-6-6 (6-6) stitches a total of (4) 4-4-5-6 (7-8) times and then (16) 19-19-18-19 (23-26) stitches 1 time. When all the stitches are cast on for the sleeve and the decreases to neck are finished, there are (42) 52-63-70-79 (90-102) stitches on the needle for shoulder/sleeve. Work garter stitch until the piece measures (20) 24-28-30-32 (36-40) cm. Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work over the last stitches which were placed on the thread, as far as the marker in the side.
Work as for the right front piece, but in reverse. In other words, cast on stitches for the shoulder/sleeve at the end of each row from the wrong side. Continue to decrease inside the 1 band stitch at the end of each row from the right side as before (towards neck).

BACK PIECE: 
= (44) 50-58-62-68 (72-80) stitches. Cast on new stitches at the end of each row in each side of the piece for the sleeves as follows: Cast on (3) 4-6-6-6 (6-6) stitches a total of (4) 4-4-5-6 (7-8) times and then (16) 19-19-18-19 (23-26) stitches 1 time = (100) 120-144-158-178 (202-228) stitches.
When the piece measures (19) 23-27-29-31 (35-39) cm cast off the middle (16) 16-18-18-20 (22-24) stitches for neck and each shoulder/sleeve is finished separately = (42) 52-63-70-79 (90-102) stitches left on each shoulder/sleeve. Work until the piece measures (20) 24-28-30-32 (36-40) cm, adjust to match the front pieces. Cast off. Work the other shoulder/sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY: 
Sew the seams on top of sleeve with grafting stitches from the right side. Sew the seams under the sleeves edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.

CROCHET EDGE: 
Crochet with hook size 2.5 mm and BabyMerino around the whole jacket opening (i.e. work from the right front piece, up along the jacket opening, around the neck and down the opening to the cast on edge on the left front piece) as follows:
ROW 1: Work 1 slip stitch in the cast on edge on the right front piece, * 1 chain stitch, skip approx. 2 stitches/rows, 1 double crochet in the next stitch/row *, work from *-* to the corner where the decreases for neck started. Work the cord as follows: 1 double crochet in the tip, then work chain stitches for approx. 20-25 cm, turn and work back with 1 slip stitch in each chain stitch, then work 1 double crochet in the tip of the front piece again, continue the crochet edge around the jacket and neck to the tip on the left front piece, work cord as on the right front piece, continue working down the left front piece and finish with 1 slip stitch in the cast on edge. 
ROW 2: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet around the first chain stitch on the previous row, * 4 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, skip 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet, work 1 double crochet around the next chain stitch *, work from *-* (make sure you work over the cords so the cords lie underneath), finish with 1 slip stitch in the last stitch. 
Work rows 1 and 2 in the same way around the bottom of both sleeves (the rounds start with 1 chain stitch and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch).
Work 2 loose cords: Work chain stitches for approx. 20-25 cm, turn and work back with 1 slip stitch in each chain stitch. Cut the strand and work 1 more cord in the same way. Sew 1 cord to the inside of the right side in the side and 1 cord on the outside of the left side in the side. Make sure the two cords are at the same height on each side.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
The slipper is worked back and forth with circular needle from mid back, top down; i.e. you first work the leg then the foot. 
Cast on (36) 38-40-44-48 (52-56) stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm and BabyMerino. Work A.3 (= 2 stitches) over all stitches. When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, work the next row from the right side as follows: Work (2) 3-0-2-0 (2-0) stitches stocking stitch, A.4 (= 8 stitches) a total of (4) 4-5-5-6 (6-7) times in width and finish with (2) 3-0-2-0 (2-0) stitches stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.4 has been completed 1 time in height continue with A.3 as follows: Knit (0) 1-0-0-0-(0-0) stitches, A.3 over the next (36) 36-40-44-48 (52-56) stitches and finish by knitting (0) 1-0-0-0-(0-0) stitches (the cord is later thread through this row of holes). When A.3 has been completed in height, work 2 RIDGES – see description above and decrease (6) 8-6-6-6- (10-14) stitches evenly on the last row from the right side = (30) 30-34-38-38 (42-42) stitches. Cut the strand.
Now place the first (11) 11-12-13-13 (15-15) stitches and the last (11) 11-12-13-13 (15-15) stitches on two separate threads. The piece is now worked in garter stitch to finished length. Work (3) 3½-4-4½-5½ (6½-8) cm, over the middle (8) 8-10-12-12 (12-12) stitches (= mid top of slipper), cut the strand. 
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work the stitches from the one thread in the one side back onto the double pointed needles, knit up (7) 9-10-11-13 (16-21) stitches in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch along the side of the middle piece, work the (8) 8-10-12-12 (12-12) stitches on the needle (= front), knit up (7) 9-10-11-13 (16-21) stitches in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch along the other side of the middle piece and work the stitches from the other thread back onto the double pointed needles = (44) 48-54-60-64 (74-84) stitches on the needles. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work a total of (2½) 3-3-4-5 (5-5) cm garter stitch over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME when you have worked approx. (1) 1½-1½-2-3 (3-3) cm, insert 1 marker (22) 24-27-30-32 (37-42) stitches in (= middle of slipper). Now decrease every 2nd row to finished length as follows:
Knit 1 stitch, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit until there are 2 stitches left before the marker, knit together the next 4 stitches, 2 and 2 (= 2 stitches decreased), knit until there are 3 stitches left, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 1 stitch (= 4 stitches decreased every 2nd row) = approx. (32) 36-42-48-52 (62-72) stitches.
Cast off and sew the seam under the foot and up mid back in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is flat.
Work 1 more slipper in the same way.

CORD:
Work a cord as follows: Work chain stitches with hook size 2.5 mm and BabyMerino for approx. 30-40 cm, turn and work back with 1 slip stitch in each chain stitch. Cut and fasten the strand.
Thread the cord in and out of the row of holes on the slipper (start and finish mid front of slipper).

Ivy 14.05.2019 - 03:48:

Does decreasing 1 on each end of right side for 18 rows or 9 rows x 2 = 18 Would you still be decreasing while you are casting on and knitting the sleeves?

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 09:10:

Dear Ivy, you decrease 1 stitch on each side a total of 18 times every row from RS (= 36 rows in total) then 2 times every 4th row (= every other row from RS), you first start to decrease on mid front then while continuing decreasing mid front divide piece when work measures (12) 15 cm and cast on new stitches for sleeve. Happy knitting!

Nunes 24.04.2019 - 23:05:

Bonjour les explications ne sont pas tres claire c est dommage le modèle est tres jolie

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Mme Nunes, les explications peuvent vous paraître différentes de celles dont vous avez l'habitude, suivez simplement chaque étape comme expliqué. Pour toute question, vous pouvez utiliser cet espace ou bien contacter - même par mail ou téléphone - le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine. Bon tricot!

Claudine 14.04.2019 - 11:23:

Je ne comprends pas comment on monte les mailles des manches. Avez vous une vidéo

DROPS Design 16.04.2019 kl. 17:10:

Bonjour Claudine, regardez le video ICI. Bon tricot!

Ilse Wellershoff-Schuur 24.03.2019 - 19:01:

Auf einem der Bilder gibt es auch ein Mützchen... Wo gibt es dazu eine Anleitung? Oder soll man sie einfach entsprechend selbst werkeln?

DROPS Design 24.03.2019 kl. 19:26:

Liebe Frau Wellershoff-Schuur, die Anleitung können Sie hier finden: https://www.garnstudio.com/pattern.php?id=8503&cid=9. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anna 09.03.2019 - 07:51:

Liebes Drops Team, werden in den Diagrammen Hin und Rückreihen gezeigt oder nur die Hinreihen? Außerdem verstehe ich nicht wofür das Diagramm a2 ist. Wenn ich 4 Maschen Blende stricke, habe ich 136 Maschen über die ich das Muster 17 mal laufen lasse (Größe 56/62) was mach ich mit der einen Masche im Diagramm a2? LG Anna

Mieke 05.03.2019 - 13:01:

Ik ben net met het vestje begonnen, en wil graag de totale (onder)breedte weten bij de kleinste maat. Bij de afbeelding staat alleen een enkele breedte vermeld, niet de totale afmeting incl onder- en overslag. Bedankt !

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 17:47:

Dag Mieke,

De punt van de overslag komt bijna tot de zijnaden, dus de totale breedte is dan ongeveer 3 keer de breedte die onderaan bij de tekening staat.

Johanna 05.03.2019 - 10:19:

Beim Rumpfteil für die Jacke steht es wird insgesamt 22x in jeder 2. Reihe abgenommen. Heißt das, dass ich insgesamt 22 Maschen in 11 Abnahme-Reihen abnehmen muss oder dass ich insgesamt 44 Maschen in 22 Abnahme-Reihen abnehmen muss?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 11:42:

Liebe Johann, es wird 1 Masche insgesamt 22 Mal in jeder 2. Reihe dann 2 Mal in jeder 4. Reihe abgenonmmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Carin Ehrs 01.02.2019 - 14:49:

Varför ska man använda rundsticka till koftan? Gå det inte lika bra med långa stickor?

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:55:

Hei Carin. Det er fordi det skal strikkes over ganske mange masker, og det kan være lettere om man strikker på rundpinne. Det kan også være lettere når du senere skal dele arbeidet og sette delene på en tråd. Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du strikker på 2 pinner om du ønsker det, men vær da obs på høyt maskeantall og deling av arbeidet. God fornøyelse

Claudia Meischl 30.01.2019 - 08:33:

Hallo, ich bin eben bei der Aufnahme der Ärmelmaschen, soll ich weiterhin in jeder 4. REIHE eine Masche abnehmen bis zum Schluss ? LG Claudia

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Frau Meischl, die Maschen für den Ärmel schlagen Sie am Ende jeder Hinreihe (Rechtes Vorderteil)/am Ende jeder Rückreihe (linkes Vorderteil)/ am Ende jeder Hin- sowie Rückreihe (Rückenteil): (3) 4-6-6-6 (6-6) Maschen (4) 4-4-5-6 (7-8) Mal und dann (16) 19-19-18-19 (23-26) Maschen 1 Mal für jeden Ärmel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
