EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 72 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 15.5.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 15th and 16th stitch. On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Do not increase on bands.
When decreasing, work alternately each 14th and 15th stitch and each 15th and 16th stitch together.

RAGLAN:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Increase to raglan in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch. A total of 8 stitches increased on each increase-row.

V-NECK:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Make 1 yarn over inside the 5 band stitches and knit 1 stitch (= 1 stitch increased). On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole. Then work the new stitch in stockinette stitch. A total of 2 stitches increased on each increase-row.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on the right band (when garment is worn). Work from the right side when there are 4 stitches left on the row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 2. On the next row (wrong side), knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
The first buttonhole is worked when the increases for the V-neck are finished. Then the second buttonhole is worked after 9 cm = 3 1/2” in all sizes.

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.


KNITTING TIP (for bands/neck):
Knit up from the right side 62-62-66-66-68-70 stitches along the whole neck (not over bands) with a new needle. When working the bands, knit together 1 stitch from the band and 1 stitch from the new needle until half the stitches have been worked (= mid back). Work the remaining stitches together with the band on the opposite side.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Yoke and body are worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front, top down. One half of both pockets are worked before the yoke so that they can be worked into the piece. Pockets worked back and forth. Sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down. Then the bands/neck are worked back and forth and sewn on to finish.

POCKETS (first half):
Cast on 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with double pointed needle/circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and Sky. Work stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, on each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! When the piece measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm = 4 3/4”-4 3/4”-5 1/8”-5 1/8”-5 1/2”-5 1/2” bind off the edge stitches = 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches. Place stitches on 1 thread and work 1 more pocket in the same way. Lay the pockets to one side and work yoke. The other half of the pocket is worked and assembled when the jacket is finished.

YOKE:
Cast on 72-74-76-76-78-80 stitches (including 5 band stitches on each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and Sky. Purl 1 row from the wrong side with 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side towards mid front. Knit 1 row where you increase 4-4-4-4-8-8 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 76-78-80-80-86-88 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and purl 1 row from the wrong side with 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side towards mid front.
Insert 4 marker threads in the piece (without working the stitches) as follows: First marker thread is inserted after the first 7 stitches (= front piece), second after the next 16 stitches (= sleeve), third after the next 30-32-34-34-40-42 stitches (= back piece) and the fourth marker thread is inserted after the next 16 stitches (= sleeve). There are 7 stitches left after the last marker thread (= front piece).
Continue with stockinette stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side – AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side increase to RAGLAN in each transition between body and sleeves – read description above. Continue to increase to raglan every 2nd row (i.e. each row from the right side) until you have increased a total of 30-34-35-39-41-44 times on each side of the 4 marker threads. AT THE SAME TIME on row 6 (i.e. 3rd row from the right side) increase to V-NECK on each side towards mid front – read description above, as follows: Increase every 6th row a total of 13-14-13-15-10-9 times and then every 4th row a total of 0-0-2-0-8-10 times (= a total of 13-14-15-15-18-19 stitches increased in each side towards mid front).
After the last increase to raglan the piece measures approx. 21-24-25-28-29-31 cm = 8 1/4”-9 1/2”-9 3/4”-11”-11 3/8”-12 1/4” from the cast-on edge. Continue working without further raglan increases until the piece measures 25-27-28-30-32-34 cm = 9 3/4”-10 5/8”-11”-11 3/4”-12 1/2”-13 3/8”, but continue to increase to V-neck as before.
The next row from the right side is worked as follows:
Work as far as the first marker thread, work 5-4-5-6-7-8 stitches after the marker thread (= front piece), place the next 66-76-76-82-84-88 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 102-110-116-126-138-150 stitches (= back piece), place the next 66-76-76-82-84-88 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work as far as the fourth marker thread (= 5-4-5-6-7-8 stitches) and work to end of row (= front piece). Body and sleeves are continued separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when increasing in the sides. Continue with stockinette stitch, 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side and increasing to V-neck as before. When the increases to V-neck are finished there are 230-246-262-282-310-334 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 3-3-3-2-1-0 cm = 1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-3/4”-3/8”-9” from the division (V-neck measures approx. 28-30-31-32-33-34 cm = 11”-11 3/4”-12 1/4”-12 1/2”-13”-13 3/8” from the cast-on edge). Now work the first BUTTONHOLE on right band, read description above. When the piece measures 5 cm = 2” from the division increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP = 4 stitches increased. Increase like this every 0-20-12-7-5-4 cm a total of 1-2-3-5-6-7 times = 234-254-274-302-334-362 stitches. At the same time, when piece measures approx.16-15-14-13-12-11 cm = 6 1/4”-6”-5 1/2”-5 1/8”-4 3/4”-4 3/8” from the division the next row is worked from the right side as follows:
Work the first 17-17-19-19-21-21 stitches, place the next 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches on 1 thread (other half of the pocket will be worked here later), work the 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches from the thread on the one pocket (make sure you continue from the right side of the pocket), work until there are 43-43-47-47-51-51 stitches left on the row, place the next 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches on 1 thread (other half of the pocket will be worked here later), work the 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches from the other pocket (make sure you continue from the right side of the pocket) and work the last 17-17-19-19-21-21 stitches on the row.
Continue with stockinette stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side until the piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm = 12 1/2”-12 1/2”-13”-13”-13”-13” from the division. Now divide the piece at the marker threads in the sides.

BACK PIECE:
= 112-122-132-146-162-176 stitches. Work stockinette stitch with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch on each side until the piece measures 45-45-46-46-46-46 cm = 17 3/4”-17 3/4”-18”-18”-18”-18” from the division. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and work 3 ridges. Loosely bind off; to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with needle size 4 mm = US 6. The jacket measures approx. 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm = 30 3/4”-31 1/2”-32 1/4”-33”-33 7/8”-34 5/8” from the shoulder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 61-66-71-78-86-93 stitches. Work stockinette stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch towards mid front and 4 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the side. Work until the piece measures 45-45-46-46-46-46 cm = 17 3/4”-17 3/4”-18”-18”-18”-18” from the division. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and work 3 ridges. Loosely bind off; to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with needle size 4 mm. The jacket measures approx. 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm = 30 3/4”-31 1/2”-32 1/4”-33”-33 7/8”-34 5/8” from the shoulder.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as for the right front piece.

SLEEVE:
Place the 66-76-76-82-84-88 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 76-86-88-94-98-104 stitches. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches under the sleeve; this is the beginning of the round. Start here and work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 41-40-39-38-36-35 cm = 16 1/8”-15 3/4”-15 1/4”-15”-14 1/4”-13 3/4” from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke) work 1 round where you decrease 32-38-36-42-42-44 stitches evenly spaced – remember INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 44-48-52-52-56-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm = US 4. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with a needle size 4 mm = US 6. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

BAND/NECK:
Knit up from the right side 1 stitch in each of the 5 band stitches on the right front piece with needle size 3.5 mm = US 4. Work the 5 band stitches in garter stitch back and forth. If you wish the band can be worked together with the neck – read KNITTING TIP. When the band measures approx. 14-14-15-15-16-16 cm = 5 1/2”-5 1/2”-6”-6”-6 1/4”-6 1/4” bind off. Work the band on the left front piece in the same way. Sew the 2 bands together mid back and then sew them to the neck of the jacket.

POCKETS:
Work back and forth with circular needle.
Place the 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches from the thread on the right front piece on needle size 4 mm = US 6. On the first row cast on 1 edge stitch on each side = 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches. Work stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side until the pocket measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm = 4 3/4”-4 3/4”-5 1/8”-5 1/8”-5 1/2”-5 1/2”; loosely bind off. Work the pocket on the left front piece in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the pockets inside the 1 edge stitch around the whole pocket. Then fasten to the inside of the jacket with one small neat stitch in each of the bottom corners (the stitches should not show on the right side of the jacket).
Sew buttons onto left front piece.

Podrían recomendarme un patrón top down escote en v pero sweater ?

Maria 05.03.2019 - 18:16:

Wil zo graag dit vest breien, maar ik heb 13 stkn op 10cm. Kan ik het gewoon omrekenen of klopt de raglan dan niet meer?

DROPS Design 07.03.2019 kl. 22:21:

Dag Maria,

Als je het omrekent moet je alles omrekenen, dus hoeveel steken je opzet, hoeveel steken je moet minderen, hoeveel steken je in de hoogte moet breien voor de raglan, etc. Dus voor de raglan moet je ook rekening houden met de stekenverhouding in de hoogte en dit evt. omrekenen.

Hola hay error en los aumentos del cuerpo, a cada cuanto cm. Se aumentan? Gracias

Gemma 07.02.2019 - 07:48:

Me encanta. Me pongo con él en cuanto me llegue la lana, a ver si lo consigo. Gracias por el patrón traducido.

Michel 06.02.2019 - 19:09:

Monter 72-(72)-76-76-78-80 mailles (y compris 5 mailles de bordure devant de chaque côté)Tricoter 1 rang endroit en augmentant 4-(4)-4-4-8-8 mailles = 76-(78)-80-80-86-88 mailles. tailles M : 72 mailles +4 mailles augmentés = 76 mailles pas 78 comme indiqué peut être une erreur de frappe dans les explications ???

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 11:45:

Bonjour Michel, effectivement une faute de frappe mais dans le nombre de mailles à monter: 74 au lieu de 72, la correction a été faite, merci! Bon tricot!

Margit 01.02.2019 - 21:41:

Liebes Drops-Team, ich glaube, einen Fehler entdeckt zu haben. Nach allen Raglanzunahmen sowie nach allen Zunahmen für den V-Ausschnitt teilt man die Maschen neu ein. Vorderteil, Ärmel (Maschen stilllegen), Rückenteil usw. Bei Größe L sind für das Rückenteil 116 Maschen angegeben, es müssten aber 114 Maschen sein. Bin ich richtig mit meiner Rechnung? Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 09:22:

Liebe Margit, es hängt vielleicht von der Reihenanzahl für 10 cm Sie haben und wieviele Zunahmen an den beiden Vorderteil Sie schon gestrickt haben, wenn die Arbeit 28 cm mist. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Natalia 27.01.2019 - 20:42:
