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

JACKET:
The piece is worked back and forth in garter stitch. Front and back pieces are worked separately and sewn together to finish. Stitches are cast on for the sleeves.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 54-58-62-66-70-76 stitches with circular needle size 10 mm and 1 strand off white and 1 strand denim blue (= 2 strands). Work GARTER STITCH and STRIPES - see description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 43-44-46-47-49-51 cm, cast on 2 new stitches for the sleeve on each side at the end of each row a total of 9-8-8-7-7-6 times, then 1 stitch a total of 0-1-0-1-0-0 times= 18-17-16-15-14-12 new stitches on each side of the piece = 90-92-94-96-98-100 stitches. Then cast on 9 new stitches at the end of the next 2 rows = 108-110-112-114-116-118 stitches. When the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm cast off stitches for the diagonal shoulder on each side of the piece at the beginning of each row as follows: Cast off 9-9-10-9-10-10 stitches 1 time, 3 stitches a total of 10 times. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm cast off the middle 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. When the decreases for diagonal shoulders are finished, cast off the remaining 10-11-11-12-12-13 stitches. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 32-34-36-38-40-43 stitches with circular needle size 10 mm and 1 strand off white and 1 strand denim blue (= 2 strands). Work garter stitch and stripes. When the piece measures 43-44-46-47-49-51 cm cast on 2 new stitches for the sleeve at the end of each row from the right side a total of 9-8-8-7-7-6 times, then 1 stitch a total of 0-1-0-1-0-0 times = 18-17-16-15-14-12 new stitches = 50-51-52-53-54-55 stitches. Then cast on 9 new stitches at the end of the next row from the right side = 59-60-61-62-63-64 stitches. When the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm, cast off stitches for the diagonal shoulder at the beginning of each row from the wrong side as follows: Cast off 9-9-10-9-10-10 stitches 1 time, 3 stitches a total of 10 times and 10-11-11-12-12-13 stitches 1 time = 10-10-10-11-11-11 stitches for shawl collar. Now work short rows over the collar as follows:

SHAWL COLLAR:
Work from mid front: * Work 2 rows over the first 6 stitches, 2 rows over all stitches *, work from *-* until the piece measures approx. 10-10-10-12-12-12 cm at the narrowest point (measured closest to the shoulder). Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as for the right front piece, but reversed; i.e. cast on new stitches at the end of each row from the wrong side and cast off stitches at the beginning of each row from the right side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Sew the shawl collar together mid back and sew onto the neckline on the back piece; make sure the seam is towards the wrong side when the collar is folded down.
Sew the underarm seams and side seams until you have approx. 23-24-25-25-27-28 cm left down to the bottom (= split).

Lo stesso problema vale per il davanti sinistro, che deve essere lavorato a specchio. Inoltre il diagramma in fondo alle istruzioni mi fa sorgere un\'altra domanda: devo creare il collo a scialle anche nel davanti sinistro, oppure no? Grazie

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 13:57:

Buongiorno Elena. Il collo a scialle viene lavorato anche sul davanti sinistro. Buon lavoro!

Elena 20.06.2018 - 12:47:

Buongiorno, sto lavorando il davanti destro, ma mi sorge un dubbio: le istruzioni indicano di avviare nuove maglie per la manica alla fine di ogni ferro dal diritto del lavoro e di intrecciare le maglie per la diagonale della spalla all’inizio di ogni ferro dal rovescio del lavoro; così facendo però non andrei a creare il polso (9 maglie intrecciate 1 volta) dove dovrei invece successivamente iniziare il collo a scialle...?

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 13:56:

Buongiorno Elena. Le indicazioni sono corrette. Quando si parla p.es di davanti destro, lo si intende quando il capo è indossato. Buon lavoro!

Patroon 191-28 geeft 2 verschillende hoeveelheden voor Drops Air. 400 gram en nu 250 gram\r\nDrops Bruched Alpaca Silk is geen verschil.Welke hoeveelheid is correct

DROPS Design 06.05.2018 kl. 11:45:

Dag Marijke, Er is recent een aanpassing gedaan in de benodigde hoeveelheid garen. De hoeveelheid die nu op de website staat is de juiste.

Elena 10.04.2018 - 12:40:

Chiedo scusa, ma sono le prime volte che lavoro a maglia... cosa significa esattamente: "avviare N maglie con 1 capo di un colore e 1 capo di un altro colore (= 2 capi)"? Esiste un tutorial che mi possa aiutare? Grazie

DROPS Design 10.04.2018 kl. 13:17:

Buongiorno Elena. Deve lavorare usando contemporaneamente p.es. il filo di un gomitolo del colore panna e il filo di un gomitolo del colore blu denim. Buon lavoro!

Ein sehr schöner Mantel 🧥

Victoria 13.12.2017 - 20:33:

Kann ich mir sehr gut als Lieblings-Übergangsjacke vorstellen.

Lene Hangaard 13.12.2017 - 12:26:

Hvor er den skøn! Jeg afventer spændt opskriften, så jeg kan komme i gang :-)

Great for chilly summer days by the seaside :-)
