EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1).
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the garment losing elasticity when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle number when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 116 stitches), minus bands (= 5 stitches in each side of piece = 10 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 5) = 21.2. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 21st 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 8 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 16 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

ELEVATION:
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle stitch on needle (= mid back). Begin from right side with plum and work in stocking stitch until 8-8-8-9-9-10 stitches have been worked past marker, turn, tighten yarn and work 16-16-16-18-18-20 stitches in stocking stitch. Turn, tighten yarn and work 24-24-24-27-27-30 stitches in stocking stitch, turn, tighten yarn and work in stocking stitch until 5 stitches remain on needle, 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Work 1 row from wrong side.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 8 stitches increased on round): Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), make 1 yarn over. Repeat at the other marker threads. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes

DECREASE TIP (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). 1 BUTTONHOLE = work from right side until 3 stitches remain on needle, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and finish by knitting 1. On next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to make a hole. Decrease first buttonhole when neck edge measures 1½-2 cm. Then decrease the next 7-7-7-8-8-8 buttonholes, approx. 7 cm apart.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 116-120-125-135-140-144 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with plum. Work 5 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Decrease for BUTTONHOLES on right band - read explanation above.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work next row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, stocking stitch until 5 stitches remain on needle, AT THE SAME TIME increase 5-11-16-16-21-27 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP-1, 5 band stitches in garter stitch = 121-131-141-151-161-171 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side. 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. 
Insert 9-10-10-10-11-11 marker threads in piece without working as follows: Insert first marker thread after 12-11-12-12-10-10 stitches, insert each of the next 8-9-9-9-10-10 marker threads after 12-12-13-14-14-15 stitches, 13-12-12-13-11-11 stitches remain on row after last marker thread. Move the marker threads upwards when working. Now work pattern A.1 (choose diagram for your size) – read KNITTING TIP, with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side, AT THE SAME TIME on every row with arrow in diagram increase on each side of marker threads as follows: REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
ARROW-1: Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 18-20-20-20-22-22 stitches increased) = 139-151-161-171-183-193 stitches.
ARROW-2: Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 18-20-20-20-22-22 stitches increased) = 157-171-181-191-205-215 stitches.
ARROW-3: Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 18-20-20-20-22-22 stitches increased) = 175-191-201-211-227-237 stitches.
ARROW-4: Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 18-20-20-20-22-22 stitches increased) = 193-211-221-231-249-259 stitches.
ARROW-5: Increase 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread (= 18-20-20-20-22-22 stitches increased) = 211-231-241-251-271-281 stitches.
When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 11-12-13-14-15-16 cm from cast-on edge and down mid front. Remove the marker threads. Now work pattern as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.2 (= 1 stitch), work A.3 until 5 stitches remain on row (= 20-22-23-24-26-27 repetitions of 10 stitches) and 5 band stitches in garter stitch. On next to last row in A.2 and A.3 increase 10-11-12-14-11-11 stitches evenly = 301-330-345-361-386-400 stitches. When entire A.2 and A.3 has been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm from cast-on edge and down mid front.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker thread after the first 50-54-56-60-65-69 stitches (= left front piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 55-62-66-66-68-67 stitches (= sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 91-98-101-109-120-128 stitches (= back piece) and insert 4th marker thread after the next 55-62-66-66-68-67 stitches (= sleeve). 50-54-56-60-65-69 stitches remain on row after last marker thread (= right front piece).
Now work pattern A.4 with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side, at the same time on first row from right side begin increase for RAGLAN – read explanation above. Increase like this every other row 5-6-8-10-11-13 times in total = 341-378-409-441-474-504 stitches. NOTE: When A.4 has been worked vertically 1 time, continue with stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side until all increases for raglan are done and piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, 50-55-59-65-71-77 stitches in stocking stitch (= right front piece), slip the next 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 101-110-117-129-142-154 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve edges, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the remaining 50-55-59-65-71-77 stitches in stocking stitch (= left front piece), 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE! 

BODY:
= 231-250-269-293-322-350 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread 60-65-70-76-83-90 stitches in from each side (there are now 111-120-129-141-156-170 stitches between marker threads on back piece). Continue with plum, stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. When piece measures 4 cm from division, increase 2 stitches in each side - read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this approx. every 2 cm 12 times in total = 279-298-317-341-370-398 stitches. Work the new stitches in stocking stitch.
When piece measures 28 cm from division, increase 8-10-12-12-16-18 stitches = 287-308-329-353-386-416 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work rib as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, 2 stitches in garter stitch *, work from *-* in the round for 2 cm. Work 2 ridges and cast off. Jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles or a short circular needle size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 75-84-94-98-104-109 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches mid under sleeve and begin round here. Continue with plum and in stocking stitch. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 8th-6th-5th-4th-4th-3rd round 13-17-21-22-23-24 times in total = 49-50-52-54-58-61 stitches. Continue until piece measures 40-38-37-35-33-32 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round while increasing 2-4-5-6-5-5 stitches evenly = 51-54-57-60-63-66 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Now work rib * knit 1, 2 stitches in garter stitch *, work from *-* in the round for 2 cm. Work 2 ridges and cast off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to left band.

Det skal økes ut 12 masker fra 241 m (str. L) før mønster i bærestykke, jevnt fordelt i A2 og A3 til 345 masker (str L). Men hvordan kan dette bli 345 masker etter økningen? Det må jo bli 104 masker som skal økes? Eller? Hvis det skal økes 12 m jevnt fordelt i hver rapport på 10 masker, så blir jo antall økte masker 120.

Forstår ikke afslutningskanten nederst på trøjen, hvad betyder 1r,2r

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 15:16:

Hei Marianne. Jeg kan skjønne at dette er en forvirrende formulering på dansk siden begge deler heter rett. Men du skal altså strikke 1 rettmaske (= rett fra retten, vrang fra vrangen) og 2 masker rettstrikk (rett fra retten, rett fra vrangen). Dette gjentas rundt omgangen. God fornøyelse.

Ruth Knudsen 27.09.2018 - 16:23:

I mønster 3 skal sidste firkant ikke med, så ville det være dejligt hvis i skrev rip er 2ret 2 vrang, fremfor at skrive 1 ret, 2ret
