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.8. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

SHORT ROWS IN BAND:
Work short rows over stitches in band to avoid it contracting vertically. Work as follows from right side every 20th row: Knit 5 (= right band), turn and work back. Work 1 row over all stitches as before. Turn and knit 5 (= left band), turn and work back. Turn and work 1 row over all stitches as before.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 2 stitches in each section with marker thread as follows:
Work until first section in stockinette stitch and marker thread, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains in section with stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= 2 stitches increased). Repeat at each of the remaining sections with stockinette stitch and marker thread (= 8 stitches increased on every row with increase). On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to collar):
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over inside 3 stitches in garter stitch on band mid front. On next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-3 (applies to sleeves):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker under sleeve, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

DECREASE TIP (applies to body):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease 2 stitches in each of the 8 sections with 20-22-24-24-24-24 stitches in stockinette stitch as follows: Work until first section with stockinette stitch, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, work until 2 stitches remain in this section with stockinette stitch, knit the last 2 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased). Repeat at each of the remaining 7 sections with stockinette stitch (= 16 stitches decreased on every row with decrease).
 
BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band when garment is worn (i.e. decrease at the beginning of row from right side). 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from edge together and make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over = hole.
Decrease for buttonholes when piece measures:
S: 27, 36, 45 and 54 cm
M: 28, 37, 46 and 55 cm
L: 29, 38, 47 and 56 cm
XL: 30, 39, 48 and 57 cm
XXL: 31, 40, 49 and 58 cm
XXXL: 32, 41, 50 and 59 cm

I.e. the 2 middle section in stockinette stitch in each side of piece. On next row from right side, increase in every section with marker thread - read INCREASE TIP-1! Increase like this every 4-4-4-4-2-2 cm / 1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-¾"-¾" 1-2-3-3-3-3 times in total = 220-228-252-276-292-332 stitches.

E' un modello splendido , ma io non mi trovo a lavorare con i ferri circolari, lo posso eseguire anche con ferri normali? Se si, quali accorgimenti devo usare ? grazie

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 11:09:

Buongiorno Claudia. Per lavorare con i ferri dritti, dovrebbe riuscire ad individuare quante maglie avviare per lavorare il dietro e i davanti separatamente. Per un aiuto personalizzato, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Mary Machnik 19.11.2018 - 13:35:

Hallo, Ich habe diese Jacke nach der Anleitung gestrickt.... Sie ist wunderschön, aber es ist ein anderes Muster als auf den Bild... Wo bekomme ich die Anleitung für genau dieses Modell?

DROPS Design 20.11.2018 kl. 08:58:

Liebe Frau Machnik, es ist die richtige Anleitung - die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen dh die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen (Hinreihen lesen Sie rechts nach links und Rückreihen links nach rechts). Am besten zeigen Sie Ihr Strickstück Ihrem Laden (auch per Mail), sicher können Sie Ihnen weiterhelfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

سعاد 01.11.2018 - 15:07:

Please is there a downloadable pattern

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 08:18:

Dear سعاد, our pattern can only be printed, but you can then use a virtual printer to save them as .PDF files. Happy knitting!

Ute Marx 29.10.2018 - 09:12:

Hallo, ich hab noch mal eine Frage: Ich fange gerade mit den Ärmeln in XXL an. Anschlag 60 Maschen ist noch klar, aber wenn ich dann weiter nach Anleitung stricke, habe ich 64 Maschen auf der Nadel: 12 re., 10 Maschen von A1, 20 Maschen von A7, 10 Maschen von A1, 12 re. Wo ist mein Denkfehler? Die Zu- und Abnahmen stimmen dann auch nur, wenn ich wirklich 60 Maschen auf der Nadel hätte.

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 10:00:

Liebe Frau Marx, es stimmt so: bei der 1. Reihe in A.1 und A.7 haben Sie 1 M in jedem A.1 und 2 M in A.7 zugenommen = es sind jetzt 64 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ute Marx 15.10.2018 - 16:31:

Wenn ich bei den Vorderteilen mit der Kragenzunahme beginn, soll die dann in der Mitte der 5 krausen Maschen der Blende erfolgen? Das "neben 3 kraus rechten Maschen" verwirrt mich. Und stricke ich beim Kragen auch weiterhin in jeder 20. Reihe die verkürzten Reihen wie in der Blende?

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Frau Marx, die Zunahmen für den Kragen enstehen immer nach den 3 ersten Maschen (re. Vorderteil) bzw vor den 3 letzten Maschen (li. Vorderteil). Die verkürzten Reihen stricken Sie bis die Maschen für Schulter abgekettet sind, dann werden andere verkürzten Reihen über die Kragenmaschen gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Heidi 01.10.2018 - 01:32:

Am I missing something here? It seems to me the cabling in the instructions goes in the opposite direction than in the pictures of the finished cardigan. Shouldn’t the three stitches on the cable needle be slipped in front of the piece?

DROPS Design 02.10.2018 kl. 14:27:

Dear Heidi, thanks for your feedback, you are right, diagram text has been updated. Happy knitting!

Helena Karlsson 17.09.2018 - 09:05:

Hej! Jag tycker det är en väldigt vacker kofta och vill gärna sticka den men får inte ihop maskantalet på diagram A3, A5 och A7. Enligt förklaringarna får jag det till 19 eller 21 maskor/rapport. Tacksam för hjälp! Med vänlig hälsning Helena Karlsson

Suman 10.09.2018 - 14:37:

Where are the measurements of this sweater given. You have given the sizes from S - XXXL but where are the measurements of these sizes? Please help.

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 14:56:

Hi Suman. Normally you'll find the sketch with measurements along with diagrams at the bottom of the page. However, we’re currently experienceing some technical issues with our site, resulting in photos and diagrams not loading correctly. We are working on solving this issue and hopefully the page will be back to normal soon. Please see our twitter and facebook accounts for updates. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Liselotte 09.09.2018 - 14:25:

Jaha, ett plagg med sjalkrage. Men varför inte visa det då? Nä det är visst viktigare att visa modellens hår?

Minke 04.09.2018 - 14:47:

Klopt het aantal opzetsteken wel? Als ik kijk naar de mouw zet je voor maat M 54 steken op. Telpatroon A1 start niet met 9 steken, maar met 8. Telpatroon A7 start met 16 steken en niet met 18, zoals jullie aangeven. Bij elkaar opgeteld kom ik uit op 50 opzetsteken. Bij het begin van het lijf is dit dan ook zo.
