INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 100 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 32) = 2.8. In this example increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over after approx. every 3rd stitch. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.
If decreasing evenly knit approx. every other and 3rd. stitch together.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from right side.
Increase on each side of every repetition of A.2 (= 8 increases on row)
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next row purl yarn overs to make holes.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from right side.
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next row purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 3 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker is between these two stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

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 piece measures approx. 1½-2 cm / ½"-3/4"'' from cast-on edge. Then decrease the next 5-5-6-6-7-7 buttonholes, approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' between each.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 111-115-119-123-128-136 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH back and forth - see explanation above! Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 21-21-25-29-32-32 stitches evenly – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP, (but not over the 5 outermost stitches in each side) = 132-136-144-152-160-168 stitches – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – see explanation above. Purl 1 row from wrong side inside 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side. On next row work pattern as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 10 stitches), 3-4-6-8-10-12 stitches in stockinette stitch , (= left front piece), make 1 yarn over, A.2 (= 12 stitches), make 1 yarn over, 11 stitches in stockinette stitch (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.2, make 1 yarn over, 26-28-32-36-40-44 stitches in stockinette stitch (= back piece), make 1 yarn over, A.2, make 1 yarn over, 11 stitches in stockinette stitch (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.2, make 1 yarn over, 3-4-6-8-10-12 stitches in stockinette stitch (= right front piece), A.1, 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
First increase for raglan is now done (= 8 stitches increased on round). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue pattern like this and increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above, every other row 22-25-27-30-33-36 times in total (including first increase) = 308-336-360-392-424-456 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch, A.2 in every transition between body and sleeves and A.1 + 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front until piece measures 20-22-23-25-27-29 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½'' from cast-on edge and down along band mid front.

Continue the pattern as before and work next row from right side as follows: Work first 46-50-54-59-64-69 stitches (= left front piece), slip the next 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under sleeve, work the next 82-90-98-108-118-128 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under sleeve, work the remaining 46-50-54-59-64-69 stitches (= right front piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. Insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 194-210-230-250-274-298 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side (i.e. in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches that were cast on under sleeve in each side). Continue back and forth in stockinette stitch with A.1 + 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front as before. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' from division, increase 2 stitches in each side - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 12th-12th-14th-14th-14th-14th row 7-7-6-6-6-6 times in total = 222-238-254-274-298-322 stitches. When piece measures 31-31-32-32-32-32 cm / 12 1/4"-12 1/4"-12½"-12½"-12½"-12½'' from division, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 3 ridges. Bind off by knitting. To avoid a tight bind-off edge bind off with a needle in a larger size. Jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 67-73-77-83-89-95 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 77-83-89-95-103-111 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches picked up in each side (= mid under sleeve/side on of jacket). Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th-5th-4th-4th-3rd-3rd round 15-18-20-22-26-29 times in total = 47-47-49-51-51-53 stitches. Work until sleeve measures 44-42-42-40-39-37 cm / 17 1/4"-16½"-16½"-15 3/4"-15 1/4"-14½"'' from division. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 3 ridges. Bind off by knitting. To avoid a tight bind-off edge bind off with a needle in a larger size. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to left band.

The neckline an tension look different in the two pictures, is the first one knitted on larger needles?

DROPS Design 28.06.2018 kl. 08:58:

Dear Rosie, both ladies in the pictures are wearing the same jacket, so tension is the same on both. Happy knitting!

Voor oudere dames is de hals erg laag. Ze hebben het wat gauwer koud... Hoe is de hals hoger te maken?

DROPS Design 10.05.2018 kl. 10:35:

Dag Inez, Dit ontwerp is inderdaad met een lage hals. Het is voor ons helaas niet mogelijk om de patronen naar persoonlijke wensen aan te passen. Eventueel kun je ook hulp vragen bij de winkel waar je het garen hebt gekocht.

Sehr schön auch mit dem Pullover als Twinset.
