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.

INCREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 63 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 8 stitches) and divide the remaining 55 stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 12) = 4.6.
In this example increase after alternately approx. every 4th and 5th stitch.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row work yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 (moss stitch). Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase on every other row (i.e. every row from right side) as follows: Begin 1 stitch before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch (marker thread is in the middle of these two stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Increase on each side of the 4 marker threads.
On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs to make holes, then work the increased stitch in pattern. The 2 stitches along each raglan line are worked in stocking stitch until yoke is done.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeves):
Work until 1 stitch remains before stitch with marker thread, slip 2 stitches as if to knit together, work next stitch as shown in A.1 and pass the 2 slipped stitches over. This way A.1 will continue nicely over decrease on next row/round.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). Decrease from right side when 3 stitches remain on row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together, knit last stitch. On next row knit yarn over to make holes.
Decrease first buttonhole when neck edge measures approx. 1½-2 cm. Then decrease the next 5-5-5-6-6-6 buttonholes approx. 7½-8-8-7-7½-8 cm apart.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Work back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Sleeves are worked in the round on a short circular needle top down, switch to double pointed needles when needed.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 63-63-69-75-78-81 stitches (including 4 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 6 mm with 1 strand Alpaca + 2 strands Kid-Silk (= 3 strands). Purl 1 row (= wrong side). Work next row as follows from right side: 4 band stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 5 stitches remain, knit 1 and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 3 cm – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – see explanation above.
After rib purl 1 row from wrong side while increasing 12-12-14-14-11-10 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 75-75-83-89-89-91 stitches.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches): Insert first marker thread after the first 16-16-18-20-20-20 stitches (= front piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 9 stitches (= sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 25-25-29-31-31-33 stitches (= back piece), and insert 4th marker thread after the next 9 stitches (= sleeve). There are 16-16-18-20-20-20 stitches after last marker thread on front piece. Then work yoke as explained below.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 7 mm and work first row from right side as follows: 4 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 11-11-13-15-15-15 stitches (begin and end with knit 1), make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch (marker thread is in the middle of these two stitches), make 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 7 stitches (begin and end with knit 1), make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch, make 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 23-23-27-29-29-31 stitches (begin and end with knit 1), make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch, make 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 7 stitches (begin and end with knit 1), make 1 yarn over, work 2 stitches in stocking stitch, make 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 11-11-13-15-15-15 stitches (begin and end with knit 1) and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch (= 8 stitches increased). Continue A.1 back and forth with 4 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front and 2 stitches in stocking stitch along each raglan line. AT THE SAME TIME continue increase in RAGLAN on each side of the 4 marker threads – see explanation above, until 11-15-16-16-19-20 increases have been done in total along each raglan line (including increase on first row after neck edge). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! After last increase there are 163-195-211-217-241-251 stitches on needle. Continue pattern with 2 stitches in stocking stitch along each raglan line until piece measures 18-24-25-25-29-30 cm from cast-on edge mid front.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work the first 26-30-32-34-38-40
stitches as before, slip the next 33-41-45-45-49-49 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 5-5-5-7-7-11 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 45-53-57-59-67-73 stitches as before, slip the next 33-41-45-45-49-49 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 5-5-5-7-7-11 new stitches on needle and work the last 26-30-32-34-38-40 stitches as before. Then finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 107-123-131-141-157-175 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 5-5-5-7-7-11 stitches cast on under sleeve in each side and move the marker threads upwards when working.
Continue A.1 back and forth with 4 band stitches in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 4 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches in each side - read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 6-4-4-8-8-8 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2-2 times in each side = 95-111-119-133-149-167 stitches.
When piece measures 19-15-16-18-16-17 cm from division, knit 1 row from right side while increasing 13-12-13-17-19-19 stitches evenly = 108-123-132-150-168-186 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm. Work next row as follows from wrong side: 4 band stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 5 stitches remain, purl 1 and 4 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 4 cm. Switch back to circular needle size 7 mm and cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl - make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge. Jacket measures approx. 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 33-41-45-45-49-49 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle size 7 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 5-5-5-7-7-11 stitches cast on under sleeve = 38-46-50-52-56-60 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle stitch of the 5-5-5-7-7-11 stitches under sleeve. Continue A.1 in the round. When piece measures 3 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 13-3½-3-3-2-1½cm 3-7-8-8-10-11 times in total = 32-32-34-36-36-38 stitches. Continue until sleeve measures 32-27-26-26-23-22 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round while increasing 4-4-5-3-3-4 stitches evenly = 36-36-39-39-39-42 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 6 mm. Work rib in the round = knit 1/purl 2 for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl but to avid at tight cast-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch at the same time cast off (cast off yarn overs as stitches). Sleeve measures approx. 36-31-30-30-27-26 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Oh! I need to do another swatch in that case, perhaps I mis measured or made the water too warm, it was warm, not luke warm. Thanks for your advice.

Sharon 27.11.2018 - 22:40:

Hello there, Id like to a about shrinkage? Is the measurement on the chart before washing? My gauge swatch shrunk from 14sts to 13 after washing using merino and 2 strands kid-silk. I feel very unsure about how to proceed except to just knit a size bigger, (is that the best thing to do?) but then I wont know if it fits untill Ive washed it. As an aside, does the recomended Alpaca yarn shrink? I noticed no mention of how to account for shrinkage in any other pattern of yours that I read.

DROPS Design 28.11.2018 kl. 03:49:

Dear Sharon, In our experience neither of the yarns you mention (merino, Kid Silk or the Alpaca) should shrink with proper care. Be careful to follow the directions for washing pinted on the bands / lavels. Do not wash these yarns in the washing machine, use only lukewarm water, and the wash should be more like rinse, without too much moving around the piece. Happy Knitting!

Bonjour. Je viens de terminer ce gilet en taille XL. Je l'ai réalisé en mélody (brouillard) associée à glitter (argent). Je l'ai tricoté au point de riz, je l'ai rallongé de 5 cm environ et j'ai fait des manches longues. Je n'ai pas mis de boutonnières. Pour les tricoteuses que cela pourrait intéresser, j'ai utilisé 4,5 pelotes de Drops Mélody. Et oui, seulement 4,5 !

Anais 15.10.2018 - 19:31:

Bonjour, Je suis en train de faire ce modele, mais j'ai un problème de comprehension pour les diminutions sous les bras : vous indiquez 4 diminutions par rang, mais les explications au-dessus expliquent une diminution d'une maille au niveau d'un marqueur, et je n'ai que 2 marqueurs sur mon gilet ? (Une dans chaque groupe de 5 mailles ajoutées au niveau des manches.)

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Anaïs, vous allez effectivement diminuer à chacun de ces 2 marqueurs sous les manches (chacun d'eux est dans la m au milieu des nouvelles mailles montées à la place de celles des manches), et vous diminuez ainsi à chacun de ces marqueurs: glissez les 2 m suivantes à l'end (= la m avant le marqueur + celle avec le marqueur), tricotez la m suivante (comme dans A.1) et passez les 2 m glissées par-dessus la m tricotée = vous avez diminué 2 mailles au marqueur (le marqueur doit être dans cette maille), répétez à l'autre marqueur = vous diminuez 4 m au total sur ce rang. Bon tricot!

Christiane Th. 04.10.2018 - 09:01:

Als Anfängerin wüsste ich gerne, welches ist die rechte Blende? Wenn ich die Knopflöcher einstricken soll, habe ich keinen Anhaltspunkt. Mit Beginn der Maschenaufnahme; hängt der Anschlagfaden auf der rechten Seite, ich stricke also die 1. Reihe als Rückreihe. Ist der Maschenanschlag aufgehäkelt, so ist es genau andersherum. Woran kann ich mich orientieren? Lieben Dank für eure tollen und kostenfreien Anleitungen, eure Unterstützung und nicht zuletzt die tolle und preiswerten Garne.

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 10:31:

Liebe Christiane, wenn man eine Jacke von oben nach unten strickt, beginnt man die Hinreihen mit dem linken Vorderteil bis zum rechten Vorderteil - die rechte Blende wird dann am Ende der Hinreihe sein (= am Anfang der Rückreihe). Die Knoplöcher stricken Sie am Ende der Hinreihe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Julia 28.09.2018 - 14:36:

Hallo, ich würde die Jacke gerne mit einem dickeren Garn stricken sodass ich nur einen Faden benötige. Worauf muss ich achten, welche Stärke benötige ich. In ihrem Shop finde ich nur ein Garn aus der Gruppe D. Ich hätte aber gerne ein glattes Garn. Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 07:37:

Liebe Julia, 3 Fäden Garngruppe A können Sie entweder durch 1 Faden Garngruppe D oder 2 Fäden Garngruppe B ersetzen - mehr über Garnalternativen lesen Sie hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jenny 09.08.2018 - 18:16:

Hallo, ich verstehe die Abnahme einfach nicht. Soll ich in einer Hin- oder Rückseite abnehmen. Und wenn ich in einer Reihe 2x vor der markierten Masvhe beginne abzunehmen, erfolgt die Abnahme doch einmal auf einer vorderseite und einmal im Rückenteil. Das kann doch nicht richtig sein? Ich bitte um Hilfe.

DROPS Design 10.08.2018 kl. 08:01:

Liebe Jenny, bei dem Rumpfteil haben Sie 2 Markierer (= Seiten, zwischen Rückenteil und jedem Vorderteil), wie unter ABNAHMETIPP abnehmen: bei einer Hinreihe stricken Sie bis noch 1 Masche vor der markierten Masche übrig ist: 2 M als rechts zs abheben (= die Masche vor der Markierer + die Markierte Masche), die nächste Masche entsprechend A.1 stricken, und die 2 abgehobenen Maschen überziehen = 2 M wurden abgenommen, 1 M bleibt (dier Markierung hier einzetzen), bei der 2. Markierten Masche wiederholen = es wurden 4 Maschen insgesamt abgenommen (= 1 auf jedem Vorderteil und 2 auf dem Rückenteil) Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jenny 09.08.2018 - 18:15:
