EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease as follows after 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over.
Decrease as follows before 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Work until 3 stitches remain, knit 2 together, 1 stitch in garter stitch.

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 on first row from right side after casting on stitches for neck and band (= when first row in A.2 is worked). Then decrease the 4-4-4-4-4-4 next buttonholes 26 rows apart, i.e. decrease for buttonhole every time a new lace repeat is started in A.2 (= 5-5-5-5-5-5 buttonholes).

Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 until 2 stitches remain on needle, work first stitch in A.1, 1 stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this.

Work the new stitches in pattern A.1. When all stitches have been cast on, insert a marker thread in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue back and forth with pattern A.1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease 1 stitch in each side - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 5-5-4-4-3-3 cm = 2”-2”-1 1/2”-1 1/2”-1 1/8”-1 1/8” 7-8-8-9-10-10 times in total = 33-35-37-37-39-41 stitches.

Sew seam under sleeves and side seams in one inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Repeat in the other side. Place the pocket along the side seam and 4 cm = 1 1/2” from bind-off edge at the bottom of front piece and sew it to front piece by sewing one and one stitch with small invisible stitches. Repeat on the other front piece. Sew the buttons on to left band.

Sorry, sorry sorry! Gelukkig heb ik een slimme buurvrouw die me er op wees , dat omdat het vest van boven naar beneden wordt gebreid, het patroon wel klopt. Nogmaals mijn excuses.

Bernadette Van Duijvenbode 18.12.2018 - 12:34:

Sorry, ik blijf erbij dat als ik een naald aan de goeie kant brei bij het rechter voorpand ik aan het eind van de naald toch echt aan de schouderkant uitkom en niet aan de halskant.

B A M Duijvenbode 17.12.2018 - 20:56:

Patroon is niet juist. Re voorpand nld 1: 1 steek aan het einde van de nld is niet de halskant. Ook bij naald 3 wordt dit verkeerd aangegeven: 15 steken opzetten voor de hals en de voorbies aan het einde van de naald. Graag correctie.

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 22:24:

Dag B A M Duijvenbode,

Je breit het rechter voorpand heen en weer tot het werk 4-4-4-4-5-5 cm meet, en je past dit zo aan dat de volgende naald aan de goede kant wordt gebreid. Hetzelfde doe je voor het linker voorpand, maar dan zorg je ervoor dat de volgende naald aan de verkeerde kant wordt gebreid.Op deze manier is bij zowel het linker- als rechter voorpand, de hals kant aan het eind van naald 1.

Ohjeessa takakappaleen kohdassa yhdistämisen jälkeen seuraavalla nurjalla puolella pääntien silmukat beulotaan nurin. Sitten on oikea puoli mallineuleen mukaan. Sitten tulee jatka tasoneuletta tähän tapaan. Tehdäänkö takakappaleessa siis koko ajan sileää pääntien kohdalla vai mallineuletta?

Bernadette Van Duijvenbode 22.11.2018 - 19:12:

Kan ik dit patroon ook breien met 2 draden alpaca? En zo ja, hoeveel heb ik dan nodig i.p.v. 750 gr Nepal?

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 16:30:

Dag Bernadette,

Om dit uit te rekenen kun je de garenvervanger gebruiken. Deze vind je hier en staat ook bij ieder patroon bovenaan bij de materialen. Vul het garen van het patroon in , de hoeveelheid die staat aangegeven bij het patroon en het aantal draden dat in het patroon gebruikt wordt. De garenvervanger geeft vervolgens een lijst van alternatieven op.

Håper oppskriften kommer en av dagene ;for den gleder jeg meg til å strikke :)

Zabeth 27.06.2018 - 21:22:

Très beau gilet qui semble moelleux. Le point ajouré qui longe la bande de boutonnières de chaque côté est élégant. Sans oublier les deux poches, très pratiques pour y loger ses mains lorsqu'il fait froid ou tout simplement y mettre un mouchoir. J'aime bien aussi l'encolure arrondie.
