EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Work all stitches in stocking stitch.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 132 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decrease/increases to be done (e.g. 17) = 7.1. In this example decrease by knitting approx. every 6th and 7th stitch together and do not decrease of bands. 
If increasing increase after approx. every 7th stitch (increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

KNITTING TIP-1 (applies to bands):
When working pattern border with two colours on yoke, also work with base colour in pattern border over the 5 band stitches in each side.

KNITTING TIP-2:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten 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 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 4 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 4 (marker thread is between these 4 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn): Work from right side until 3 stitches remain at the end of row, make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together and knit last stitch. On next row knit yarn over to make holes.
Decrease first buttonhole when rib in neck measures approx. 1½-2 cm. Then decrease the next 7 buttonholes, approx. 7-7½-7½-8-8½-8½ cm between each.

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on a short circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. 

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 132-136-140-144-152-160 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 2.5 mm with off white. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Work next row as follows from right side: Work 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above - * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until 7 stitches remain, knit 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – read explanation above. When rib measures 3 cm, knit 1 row from right side while at the same time decreasing 17-17-13-13-13-17 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 115-119-127-131-139-143 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side. Then work yoke as explained below. 

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Read KNITTING TIP-1 AND KNITTING TIP-2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work pattern from the right side follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 1 stitch), work A.2 (= 4 stitches) 26-27-29-30-32-33 times in total in width, 5 band stitches in garter stitch. On row with black star in A.2 increase 20-24-20-24-32-36 stitches evenly – remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 239-251-263-275-299-311 stitches (including the 4 stitches increased in every repetition of A.1).
Now work pattern as follows: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, A.3 (= 1 stitch), A.4 until 5 stitches remain on row, 5 band stitches in garter stitch, AT THE SAME TIME on row with arrow increase evenly as follows:
ARROW-1: Increase 24-36-36-36-36-36 stitches = 263-287-299-311-335-347 stitches.
ARROW-2: Increase 24-24-36-36-36-36 stitches = 287-311-335-347-371-383 stitches.
ARROW-3: Increase 12-24-24-36-36-36 stitches = 299-335-359-383-407-419 stitches.
ARROW-4: Increase 28-28-28-28-28-28 stitches = 327-363-387-411-435-447 stitches.
When entire A.3 and A.4 has been worked vertically, piece measures 20 cm from cast-on edge. Now work piece in light beige over all stitches until finished measurements. Continue in stocking stitch and with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front, AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side increase 10-8-8-10-12-13 stitches evenly
Increase like this every 4th-4th-4th-6th-8th-8th row 1-2-3-3-3-4 times in total = 337-379-411-441-471-499 stitches. Then work until piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge. Work next row from right side as follows: Knit 55-60-64-70-75-81 (= front piece), slip the next 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), knit 99-109-117-129-141-151 (= back piece), slip the next 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 55-60-64-70-75-81 stitches as before (= front piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 229-249-269-293-319-345 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread 60-65-70-76-82-89 stitches in from each side = 109-119-129-141-155-167 stitches between marker threads on back piece. Continue in stocking stitch back and forth with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. When piece measures 4 cm from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 8th row 9 times in total = 265-285-305-329-355-381 stitches on needle. Continue like this until piece measures 27 cm. Purl 1 row from wrong side while increasing 83-87-95-107-117-123 stitches evenly = 348-372-400-436-472-504 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work next row from right side as follows: Work 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until 7 stitches remain, knit 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 4 cm. Cast off with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl but to avoid a tight cast-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (cast off yarn overs as stitches). Jacket measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece 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 = 74-85-95-98-104-109 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches under sleeve. Begin round here and work in stocking stitch in the round. When sleeve measures 4 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP! Decrease like this every 10th-8th-6th-6th-6th-4th round 7-3-9-5-1-18 times and every 8th-6th-4th-4th-4th-2nd round 4-12-10-14-20-4 times = 52-55-57-60-62-65 stitches. Work until sleeve measures 38-36-35-33-31-30 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), knit 1 round while increasing 16-17-19-20-18-19 stitches evenly = 68-72-76-80-80-84 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2.

Vilket annat garn kan jag använda?

Anja 15.01.2019 - 23:32:

Tak for en fin opskrift. Jeg kan dog ikke få det til at passe med maskeantallet i opskriften. Jeg er nået til bærestykke, hvor jeg til en medium har 119masker på pinden. Minus kantmaskerne er det 109masker. Der står så A1 (=1 maske) strik A2 (=4 masker) totalt 27 gange i bredden. Men 109/5 = 21,8, så jeg kan ikke få det til 27 gange i bredden. Måske I kan hjælpe mig videre? På forhånd tusind tak!

Hei Anja. Etter 5 stolpemasker i rille, strikker du A.1 over den første masken, så du skal strikke A.2 over 108 masker. 108/4 = 27 ganger, og så strikkes rille over de siste 5 maskene. Du har nå strikket over alle 119 maskene. God fornøyelse

Leggendo le spiegazioni per lavorare questo delizioso golf mi sono accorta che si devono diminuire parecchie maglie subito dopo la lavorazione a coste per il collo: è un errore o davvero dite di fare così\' ? E perché?

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 21:34:

Buonasera Ilovedogs, non ci sono errori nelle spiegazioni: lavorazione a coste tende ad essere più compatta, per questo si lavorano più maglie rispetto ad una lavorazione a maglia rasata, per cui il numero di maglie da diminuire è corretto. Buon lavoro!
