INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

ENGLISH RIB (back and forth on needle, including 1 edge stitch in each side):
ROW 1: 1 stitch garter stitch, * knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, finish with knit 1, 1 stitch garter stitch.

DECREASE TIP -1 (= for the sides):
All decreases are made from the right side!
At the beginning of the row: Decrease 1 stitch after 2 stitches as follows: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
At the end of the row: Decrease 1 stitch before 2 stitches as follows: Knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP -2 (for neck):
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch after the 5 band stitches as follows (applies to right front piece): Work 5 band stitches in garter stitch, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease 1 stitch before the 5 band stitches as follows (applies to left front piece): Work until there are 7 stitches left, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased), work 5 band stitches in garter stitch.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on the right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit together the 3rd and 4th stitch from the edge and make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over = hole.

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

JACKET:
The jacket is worked back and forth with circular needle, bottom up. The back piece and front pieces are worked separately and sewn together to finish. Then the sleeves are worked and sewn to the body.

Then continue in stockinette stitch with 4 stitches garter stitch in each side, AT THE SAME TIME on the first row of stockinette stitch adjust the number of stitches to 80-84-90-98-106-114 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 14 cm / 5½'' cast on 1 edge stitch at the end of the next 2 rows (= 1 new stitch in each side of the piece) = 82-86-92-100-108-116 stitches. Then continue working stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side of the piece. When the piece measures 15 cm / 6'' decrease 1 stitch inside the 2 stitches in each side of the piece – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 2 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every 8-8-8½-9-9½-10 cm / 4'' a total of 6 times = 70-74-80-88-96-104 stitches. When the piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' bind off 3-4-4-5-5-6 stitches for the armholes at the start of the next 2 rows = 64-66-72-78-86-92 stitches. Then bind off 1 stitch in each side every 2nd row a total of 0-0-1-3-5-7 times = 64-66-70-72-76-78 stitches. When the piece measures 75-78-81-84-87-90 cm / 29 ½"-30 5/8"-31 7/8"-33"-34 ¼"-35 3/8" bind off the middle 16-18-20-20-22-22 stitches for neck = 24-24-25-26-27-28 stitches left on each shoulder. Then bind off stitches for diagonal shoulders at the beginning of each row towards the neck - i.e. at the beginning of each row from the right side on the right shoulder (when the garment is worn) and the beginning of each row from the wrong side on the left shoulder (when the garment is worn). Bind off for diagonal shoulders as follows: 6 stitches 3 times, then bind off the remaining 6-6-7-8-9-10 stitches. Repeat on the other side. The piece measures a total of 79-82-85-88-91-94 cm / 31''-32¼''-33½''-34 5/8''-35¾''-37''.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 46-49-49-55-58-61 stitches (including 5 band stitches) with circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 and Air.

Then continue with stockinette stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front as before and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the side. Work BUTTONHOLES on the band – see description above. When the piece measures 15 cm / 6'', decrease 1 stitch inside the 2 stitches in the side at the end of the next row from the right side. Decrease like this every 8-8-8½-9-9½-10 cm / 4'' a total of 6 times = 40-42-45-49-53-57 stitches. When the piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' bind off for the armhole in the side as for the back piece = 37-38-40-41-43-44 stitches.

På erme: før patentstrikk er det 59 masker i str M, etter patentstrikk skal det felles 9 masker til 50. Men, første pinne patent auker med 27 masker, til 86 - korleis kjem eg tilbake til 59 masker etter patentdelen?

Kim 17.08.2018 - 10:14:

Je voudrais vous envoyer la photo de ce modèle que je viens de tricoter, pourriez-vous m'indiquer comment il faudrait que je procède. Merci

Bonjour Kim, vous pouvez volontiers partager vos photos dans le groupe DROPS Workshop et/ou taguez-nous sur les réseaux sociaux #dropsfan pour que nous puissions les voir. Bon tricot

Ekaterina 13.07.2018 - 09:12:

Es scheint, es gibt einen Fehler hier: "Im PATENTMUSTER stricken – siehe oben. Glatt rechts, mit je 1 Rand-Masche kraus rechts beidseitig, weiterstricken, bis die Arbeit eine Länge von 37-37-37-37-37-37 cm hat\" (d.h., es ist unklar, wie lange im Patentmuster zu stricken). Im Englischen heisst es, dass Patentmuster die Länge von 37-37-37-37-37-37 cm haben muss und dann ist die Arbeit glatt rechts weiterzustricken.

Liebe Ekaterina, Sie stricken jetzt Patentmuster bis die Arbeit (= bzw der Ärmel von der Anschlagskante) 37 cm misst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
