EXPLANATION 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 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

ELEVATION (applies to back of neck):
Work the elevation in garter stitch. Insert 1 marker thread after 63-66-69-72-75-78 stitches (= approx. mid back). Begin from right side and knit 7-8-8-9-9-10 stitches past marker thread, turn, tighten yarn and knit 14-16-16-18-18-20 stitches. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 21-24-24-27-27-30 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit 28-32-32-36-36-40 stitches. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 35-40-40-45-45-50 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit 42-48-48-54-54-60 stitches. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 49-56-56-63-63-70 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and knit the rest of row. 

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 102 stitches), minus band (= 10 stitches in total = 92 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 25) = 3.68. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over.
On next row work yarn over twisted to avoid holes Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch. 

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

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. Decrease for second buttonhole when piece measures 7 cm / 2¾''.
Then decrease the next 4-4-5-5-6-6 approx. 8½-8½-7½-7½-7-7 cm apart.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to hat):
Decrease 1 stitch after every marker thread as follows: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 1 stitch decreased = 6 stitches decreased in total).

JACKET - SHORT SUMMARY OF GARMENT:
Worked back and forth, top down on circular needle to armhole, then finish body and sleeves separately. Continue body back and forth. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 102-106-110-118-122-128 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side of piece) on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Sky. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above.
Knit 1 row from right side and increase 25-27-29-27-29-29 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 127-133-139-145-151-157 stitches. Knit 1 row from wrong side. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
For better fit work an elevation at the back of neck so that yoke is somewhat higher on back piece. This elevation can be skipped, to make the neck the same at the front and back - read ELEVATION.
Decrease for BUTTONHOLES on right band - read explanation above.
Then work pattern as follows from right side: Work 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 8 stitches), A.2 (= 6 stitches) over the next 102-108-114-120-126-132 stitches (= 17-18-19-20-21-22 times in width), A.3 (= 7 stitches) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
On every row with star (= increase row) increase as follows:
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

2ND INCREASE: Increase 18-18-24-24-24-30 stitches evenly = 169-175-187-193-205-217 stitches. Then repeat A.2 24-25-27-28-30-32 times in width.

Increase like this every 3½-4½-4-6-5-3½ cm 6-5-6-4-5-7 times in total = 219-235-253-276-303-326 stitches.

When piece measures 20-22 cm / 7 7/8"-8 5/8", decrease 0-4 stitches evenly (i.e. knit every 27th and 28th stitch in size M/L together) = 108 stitches. Insert 6 markers in the piece, 18 stitches apart.
On next round, decrease 1 stitch at every marker thread – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this on every other round 8 times in total and then on every round 6 times in total = 24 stitches.

Bonjour , je tricote le gilet et je viens de terminer A4et A5 , je dois pour la taille M glisser 72 mailles en attente sur un arret de maille et je ne comprends pas bien comment faire et apres comment monter 8 mailles sous la manche .Ou doit on prendre ces 8 mailles ? Merci pour votre aide .

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 15:08:

Bonjour Odile, la vidéo ci-dessous montre - à partir du time code 06:50 environ - comment mettre les mailles des manches en attente et monter celles sous les manches. Dans la vidéo, on tricote un pull raglan, mais la technique de ce rang sera la même pour un gilet avec empiècement arrondi. Bon tricot!

Anne Droz 14.01.2019 - 13:07:

Faut-il faire les motifs A1,A2 et A3 l'un après l'autre ou seulement un des trois ?

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 13:28:

Bonjour Mme Droz, on tricote tous les motifs sur un même rang ainsi: 5 mailles de bordure devant au point mousse, A.1 (= 8 mailles ) = début du motif, répéter A.2 (= 6 mailles) au-dessus des 102-132 mailles suivantes (= 17-22 fois en largeur), on termine le motif par A.3 (= 7 mailles) et on termine rang par 5 mailles de bordure devant au point mousse. Bon tricot!

Dilys 27.12.2018 - 21:59:

Bonjour, Je commence ce gilet et je voulais m assurer d'une chose : arrivée au schéma A1,doit on commencer le schéma par le bas ou par le haut et de droite à gauche ou de gauche à droite ? Merci

DROPS Design 28.12.2018 kl. 18:30:

Bonjour Dilys, vous comencez le schema par le bas, de droite à gauche. Bon tricot!

Kirsten Olsen 05.12.2018 - 19:54:

Der ser ud til at være fejl i diagramforklaringen lige under ordet DIAGRAM i opskriften. Der er 3 ens kvadrater med forskellige anvisninger til strikkemetode??

DROPS Design 06.12.2018 kl. 11:34:

Hei Kirsten. Vi har nå sjekket dette, og alle symbolene i forklaringen er forskjellige. Gjelder dette uansett hvaslags enhet du bruker? Det første symbolet er en hvit firkant (rett), det andre er en hvit firkant med en stor sort prikk (vrang), viodere er det en over 2 masker: en skrå strek fra øverst til høyre til nederst til venstre (2 rett sammen). God fornøyelse
