EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

STRIPES: 
Work ribs in ruby red and the rest of piece in stripes and stocking stitch (with edge stitches and band stitches in garter stitch). Stripes are drawn in diagram A.1. Leave a thread of approx. 15-20 cm at colour changes, use the strand to sew side seams and seam on undersides of sleeves.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 71 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 10.1. In this example work approx. every 9th and 10th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2:
Decrease for neck inside 4 stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease as follows before 4 stitches in garter stitch: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows after 4 stitches in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 26 stitches), minus edge stitches (e.g. 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 4) = 6. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band. 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: 35-44-53 cm
M: 36-45-54 cm
L: 37-46-55 cm
XL: 38-47-56 cm
XXL: 39-48-57 cm
XXXL: 40-49-58 cm

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece back and forth in 2 strands on circular needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 71-71-77-83-89-95 stitches on circular needle size 8 mm with 2 strands ruby red. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Then work rib from right side as follows: 4 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 3, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 7 stitches remain on needle, knit 3 and 4 stitches in garter stitch. Continue like this until rib measures 3 cm, adjust to finish with next row from right side. Switch to circular needle size 9 mm.
Now work STRIPES – read explanation above – AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease stitches as follows: Work 4 stitches in garter stitch, work in stocking stitch and decrease 9-5-7-9-11-13 stitches evenly over the next 63-63-69-75-81-87 stitches – read DECREASE TIP-1 and work 4 stitches in garter stitch. There are 62-66-70-74-78-82 stitches on needle.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue with stripes, stocking stitch (with 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side) until piece measures 62-63-64-65-66-67 cm from cast-on edge. At the beginning of the next 2 rows cast off 3 stitches in each side for armholes = 56-60-64-68-72-76 stitches. Continue in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 73-75-77-79-81-83 cm, work 2 ridges over the middle 16-16-18-18-20-20 stitches (work rest of stitches as before) then cast off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches for neckline and finish each shoulder separately. Then cast off 1 stitch inside 4 stitches in garter stitch on next row from neck =23-25-26-28-29-31 stitches remain for shoulder.

Then work rib from right side as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch (= towards the side), * knit 3, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 7 stitches remain on needle, knit 3 and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch (= mid front). Continue like this until rib measures 3 cm, adjust to finish with next row from right side. Switch to circular needle size 9 mm.
Now work STRIPES – read explanation above – AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease stitches as follows: Work 4 stitches in garter stitch, work in stocking stitch and decrease 6-4-8-6-10-8 stitches evenly over the next 33-33-39-39-45-45 stitches – read DECREASE TIP-1 and work 4 stitches in garter stitch. There are now 35-37-39-41-43-45 stitches on needle. Continue with stripes, stocking stitch (with 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side) until piece measures 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm. Now begin decrease for V-neck inside the 4 band stitches in garter stitch - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease every other row from right side 9-9-10-10-11-11 times in total – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 62-63-64-65-66-67 cm cast off 3 stitches at the beginning of row from right side. Then work in stocking stitch with 4 band stitches in garter stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the side until finished measurements. When all decreases are done, 23-25-26-28-29-31 stitches remain for shoulder. When piece measures approx. 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm, make sure to cast off on same colour stripes as on back piece. Cast off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 41-41-47-47-53-53 stitches on circular needle size 8 mm with 2 strands ruby red. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Then work rib from right side as follows: work 4 band stitches in garter stitch (= mid front), * knit 3, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 7 stitches remain on needle, knit 3 and finish with 4 stitches in garter stitch (= towards the side). Continue like this until rib measures 3 cm. To get the colour change in the side of piece and not mid front, now work 1 row more in rib on this front piece than on back piece and left front piece, so that the colour change happens in the side automatically. Switch to circular needle size 9 mm.
Now work STRIPES – read explanation above – AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease stitches as follows: Work 4 stitches in garter stitch, work in stocking stitch and decrease 6-4-8-6-10-8 stitches evenly over the next 33-33-39-39-45-45 stitches – read DECREASE TIP-1 and work 4 stitches in garter stitch.

Then work in stocking stitch with 4 band stitches in garter stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the side until finished measurements.
When all decreases are done, 23-25-26-28-29-31 stitches remain for shoulder. When piece measures approx. 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm, make sure to cast off on same colour stripes as on back piece and left front piece. Cast off.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 26-26-26-32-32-32 stitches on circular needle size 8 mm with 2 strands ruby red. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Then work rib from right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 3, purl 3 *, work from *-* and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Work until rib measures 3 cm. Switch to circular needle size 9 mm. Now work STRIPES – read explanation above – AT THE SAME TIME on first row increase stitches as follows - read INCREASE TIP: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work in stocking stitch and increase 4-6-8-4-6-8 stitches evenly over the next 24-24-24-30-30-30 stitches and work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. There are now 30-32-34-36-38-40 stitches on needle. Continue with stripes until piece measures 44-43-42-41-40-39 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Cast off. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Do assembly with 1 strand to avoid chunkcy seams. Use a colour that matches the stripes. Sew shoulder seams with grafting/kitchener stitches inside cast-off-edge, make sure that the seam is even and flat. Sew sleeves in body. Sew seams along under side of sleeves inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Sew side seam in outermost loop of edge stitches down along side of body, begin at armhole and sew until approx. 17 cm remain at the bottom of jacket (= vent). Repeat in the other side. Sew the buttons on to left band. Fasten off.

Kunne tenkt meg å strikke den i en farve, hvor mange nøster trenger jeg til str S

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 11:02:

Hei May Britt. Vi har dessevrre ikke oversikt over garnmengden i ensfarget. Vi runder alltid opp til nærmeste hele nøste når vi oppgit garnmengde. Du kan se om du finner en lignende oppskrift i samme garn og bruke garnmengden der som utgangspunkt. Det er mulig å filtrere søk etter garntype, eller eventuelt etter garngruppe E. God fornøyelse

Kan man købe opskriften og få den sendt på mail

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:40:

Hej Dorte, opskriften er gratis. Inde på opskriften klikker du på det lille printer-symbol (i højre side - lige ud for Instruktioner) hvor der står "opskrift" og så er det bare at printe opskriften ud. God fornøjelse!
