INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

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

INCREASE TIP:
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE JACKET:
The jacket is worked in the round from the middle of the motif (the back), then back and forth in each side. The sleeves are worked separately and sewn on to finish.

Cast on 8 stitches with BabyAlpaca Silk and divide them between 4 double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work according to A.1 (= 8 repeats of A.1 on the round). Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round. Work up to and including the round before the arrow in A.1= 128 stitches on the needle. From the round with the arrow, work A.2 after each A.1 as follows: Work * A.1 over the first/next 15 stitches as before, work A.2 over the next stitch *, work from *-* a total of 8 times. Continue the pattern like this. The stitches in A.1 are worked into A.2 at the same time as you increase on each side of A.2 (the increases are drawn in the diagram). Work up to and including the round with a star in A.1. Now all the stitches in A.1, apart from the middle 5, have been worked into A.2. Cut the strand and begin the next round 5 stitches to the left, so that the first stitch in A.1 is the beginning of the round. Continue with A.1 and A.2; when A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, repeat A.1a to finished length. Change to circular needle when you have enough stitches. Continue until the piece measures a total of 34-36-38 cm in diameter, adjust so that next round is a round with increases. Now work armholes as follows (there are approx. 256-272-288 stitches on the needle): Increase as before, i.e. when casting off for armholes increase over these stitches, i.e. make yarn overs that are to be cast off. On next round cast on for the armhole, cast on the same amount of stitches as where cast off for armhole (including the increases), i.e count the stitches that where cast off.
Work pattern as before over the first 37-39-42 stitches, cast off the next 44-48-52 stitches for armhole (the number of stitches is without the increases, these increases come in addition to the stitches), work pattern as before until there are 81-87-94 stitches left, cast off the next 44-48-52 stitches for armhole (the number of stitches is without the increases, these increases come in addition to the stitches), work pattern over the last 37-39-42 stitches. On the next round cast on the same amount of stitches that was cast off for armhole (i.e. 44-48-52 stitches + increases that come in addition to the stitches) over the cast-off stitches. Continue with pattern as before. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height (there are now 352 stitches on the needle), continue with A.3 over A.2 (A.1a continued as before). When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, repeat the top 12 rounds of A.3; you increase as before every 4th round and you continue working rows of holes and garter stitch.

Continue with A.3 and A.1a until the piece measures 96-100-104 cm, there are approx. 672-696-720 stitches on the needle. Now divide for the front pieces as follows: Cast off the first 54-56-58 stitches, work the next 162-168-174 stitches (= left front piece), cast off stitches until you have 216-224-232 stitches left, work the next 162-168-174 stitches (= right front piece), place these stitches on a thread and cast off the last 54-56-58 stitches. Cut and fasten the strand.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Continue with pattern back and forth over the 162-168-174 stitches; adjust on row 1 so that the purled stitches in the ridges are now knitted from the wrong side. AT THE SAME TIME as the first 2 stitches at the beginning of each row are cast off (= 2 stitches cast off on each row). Continue the pattern and to cast off like this until the piece measures a total of 63-66-69 cm from the middle of the circle (i.e. the front piece measures approx. 15-16-17 cm) = approx. 66-66-66 stitches left on the needle. Cast off the remaining stitches.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as for the left front piece.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle. Cast on 48-56-64 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and BabyAlpaca Silk. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above, then work A.4 over all stitches (= 6-7-8 repeats in width). When A.4 has been worked 1 time in height continue with stocking stitch over all stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve). When the piece measures 5 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - read INCREASE TIP. Increase every 6th round a total of 18-19-20 times = 84-94-104 stitches. When the piece measures 43-43-42 cm cast off 4 stitches on each side of the marker thread and continue working back and forth on circular needle = 76-86-96 stitches. Cast off for the sleeve cap at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: 2 stitches 7-7-8 times, 1 stitch 5-7-9 times and 2 stitches in each side until the piece measures 56-57-58 cm. Cast off the remaining stitches and work the other sleeve in the same way.


ASSEMBLY:
Gather together the 8 stitches at the beginning of the piece. Sew in the sleeves.

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; the yarn over is not worked twisted to leave a hole
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; the yarn over is worked twisted to avoid a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over (= 2 stitches decreased)
= now all the stitches in A.1, apart from the middle 5, have been worked into A.2

Très beau et original Je recherche ce type de modèle pour l’hiver tricoté en Népal avec pièce dos et empiècement autour en rangs raccourcis avec motifs (losanges, torsades...) J'essaye de le faire sans modèle mais je galère... Pour le prochain catalogue d'hiver ? peut-être
