EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (for neck on front pieces):
Decrease for neck on the inside of the 5 band stitches in garter stitch + the increased stitches for collar. All decreases are made from the right side!

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Start 1 stitch before the stitch with marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 3 (marker thread sits in the middle stitch of these 3), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the increased stitches in stocking stitch.

BUTTONHOLES:

JACKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, from mid front and bottom up as far as the armholes. Then the front and back pieces are finished separately, back and forth on circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles / short circular needle, bottom up.

BODY:
Cast on a little loosely 291-319-347-375-431-459 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Nord. Work 3 RIDGES – read description above. Work 2 rows stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A until there are 6 stitches left on the row (= 20-22-24-26-30-32 repeats of 14 stitches), work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and work BUTTONHOLE on right band – read description above.
When A.1 has been completed there are 251-275-299-323-371-395 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 7 cm from the cast-on edge, measured on the longest part.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.2A (= 6 stitches), A.2B until there are 12 stitches left on the row (= 19-21-23-25-29-31 repeats of 12 stitches), A.2C (= 7 stitches) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch.

Continue working until the sleeve measures 50-50-50-49-47-46 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders and longer sleeve cap). The next round is worked as follows: Cast off 4-4-4-5-5-5 stitches, work 71-77-81-85-93-97 stitches in stocking stitch and cast off the remaining 3-3-3-4-4-4 stitches. Cut the strand.

Mir fällt gerade auf, dass beim von Größe zu Größe jeweils 28 M mehr angeschlagen werden. Nur zwischen den Größen L/XL und XXL sind es doppelt so viele , nämlich 56M. Gibt es dafür einen Grund?

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 08:18:

Liebe Gisela, so hat man eine gerade Maschenanzahl und die Musteranzahl wird auch gerade sein. Die Maßen der fertigen Jacke finden Sie in der Maßskizze, wenn Sie mit der Größe unentschlossen sind, vergleichen Sie die Maßen einer ähnliche Jacke die Sie gerne haben und tragen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
