EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back are not tight. Go up a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.
INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
All increases are worked from the right side
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 107 stitches) minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 38) = 2.6. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 2nd and 3rd stitch. On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes - do not increase on bands.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
All increases are worked from the right side!
Work until there are 4 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 8 (marker thread sits in middle of these 8 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at each marker thread and a total of 4 stitches increased on row). On the next row purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-3 (for mid under sleeves):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.  

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves): 
Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits in middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). Work from the right side when there are 3 stitches left on row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit the last stitch. On the next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
First buttonhole is worked when rib in neck measures approx. 1½-2 cm. Then the other 6-6-6-6-7-7 buttonholes are worked with approx. 8-8-8½-8½-8-8 cm between each one.

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck and yoke are worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front, top down. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves. The body is continued back and forth with circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

NECK:
Cast on 107-112-112-117-122-127 stitches (including 5 band stitches on each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 3.5 mm and light lilac. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH – read description above, * knit 2, purl 3 *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on row, knit 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue this rib for 3 cm – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – read description above.
When the rib is finished knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 38-40-42-42-44-46 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 145-152-154-159-166-173 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Purl 1 row from the wrong side (bands worked in garter stitch). Then work the yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Work stocking stitch back and forth with light lilac and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side, towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME increase as described below. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 5-5-5-5-5-6 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 44-46-50-50-52-52 stitches evenly = 189-198-204-209-218-225 stitches.
When the piece measures 7-7-7-7-7-9 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 38-41-47-40-42-44 stitches evenly = 227-239-251-249-260-269 stitches. The increases are finished in sizes S, M and L.
XL, XXL and XXXL: When the piece measures 9-10-12 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 38-39-42 stitches evenly = 287-299-311 stitches.
ALL SIZES:
= 227-239-251-287-299-311 stitches. Continue working without further increases until the piece measures 8-9-10-11-13-15 cm from the cast-on edge.
Now start pattern on the yoke – read KNITTING TIP!
The first 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 row (= 18-19-20-23-24-25 repeats of 12 stitches), work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch.
Continue this pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on each row marked with an arrow in A.1A increase as follows.
Row with arrow-1 in A.1A increase 24-36-36-36-48-48 stitches evenly spaced = 251-275-287-323-347-359 stitches (there is now room for 20-22-23-26-28-29 repeats of 12 stitches).
Row with arrow-2 in A.1A increase 24-24-36-36-36-48 stitches evenly spaced = 275-299-323-359-383-407 stitches (there is now room for 22-24-26-29-31-33 repeats of 12 stitches).
When A.1 has been completed continue with stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side and using light lilac until the piece measures 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge
The next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: Work the first 46-49-51-57-62-67 stitches in garter stitch and stocking stitch as before (= front piece), place the next 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 83-89-93-105-115-125 stitches in stocking stitch as before (= back piece), place the next 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 46-49-51-57-62-67 stitches in stocking stitch and garter stitch as before (= front piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 191-203-215-239-263-287 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread 50-53-56-62-68-74 stitches in from each side (= 91-97-103-115-127-139 stitches between marker threads on back piece). Allow the marker threads to follow you work onwards; they will be used when increasing in the sides.
Work stocking stitch back and forth with light lilac and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side, towards mid front. When the piece measures 2-2-2-1-1-1 cm from the division, work a lace pattern border as follows from the right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.2A until there are 6 stitches left on row (= 15-16-17-19-21-23 repeats of 12 stitches), work A.2B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue this pattern.
When A.2 has been completed, continue with stocking stitch and 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side towards mid front.
When the piece measures 5 cm from the division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 5 cm a total of 5 times on each side = 211-223-235-259-283-307 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 27 cm from the division in all sizes (or to desired length; there is 3 cm left to finished length).
Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 51-54-57-63-69-75 stitches evenly spaced = 262-277-292-322-352-382 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work the next row as follows from the wrong side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 3 *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on the row, purl 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue this rib for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl. The jacket measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 58-64-74-80-84-88 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches. Allow the marker thread to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing under the sleeve.
Start the round at the marker thread and work stocking stitch in the round with light lilac.
When the piece measures 2-2-2-1-1-1 cm from the division, work the next round as follows: 4-1-0-3-5-1 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.2A over the next 48-60-72-72-72-84 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-7 repeats of 12 stitches), work A.2B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5-2-1-4-6-2 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue this pattern. When A.2 has been completed continue with stocking stitch.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3-3-3-2-2-2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-2-1-1-1-1 cm a total of 4-6-10-11-11-11 times = 50-52-54-58-62-66 stitches. When the sleeve measures 15-15-15-14-14-14 cm from the division, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-3. Increase like this every 3-3-2½-2½-2½-2 cm a total of 5 times in all sizes = 60-62-64-68-72-76 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 32-30-29-28-27-25 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 15-13-16-17-18-19 stitches evenly spaced = 75-75-80-85-90-95 stitches.
Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 3) for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 35-33-32-31-30-28 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

J’ai commencé ce modèle et j’ai de la difficulté à comprendre ce que je dois faire à l’envers dans la section du jacquard. Est-ce que je dois répéter la ligne à l’envers ou dois-je faire seulement un rang envers? Les motifs ne sont pas similaires à la photo.\r\nMerci

DROPS Design 18.07.2019 kl. 10:14:

Bonjour Mylène, sur l'endroit vous lisez les diagrammes de droite à gauche ainsi: 5 m de bordure devant, vous répétez A.1A jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 6 m, vous tricotez A.1B et terminez par 5 m de bordure devant. Sur l'envers, tricotez 5 m point mousse, puis A.1B, et répétez A.1A en lisant le diagramme de gauche à droite, et terminez par 5 m point mousse. Le diagramme se lit de bas en haut, et comme le gilet se tricote de haut en bas, le diagramme est inversé par rapport à la photo. Bon tricot!

Hur gör man om man inte vill ha så vid halsringning

Dominique 02.04.2019 - 11:27:

Je ne trouve pas d'explications ,sur les sigles au début du diagramme A.1A et A.2B et A-2A. si je me refaire à la légende ,je déduis que le rond,correspond à un jetée,et que les 2carrés barrés,correspondes à 2 mailles tricotées ensemble .N'aurait il pas été plus clair,de mettre ceci dans la légende.pour moi qui fait mon premier jacquard,c'est pas clair... Merci d'avance de votre réponse. dom.

DROPS Design 02.04.2019 kl. 12:42:

Bonjour Dominique, vous retrouvez les 2 carrés barrés dans la légende = 4ème symbole et le jeté est le 3ème symbole de la légende. Tous les symboles du diagramme sont donc bien répertoriés. Bon tricot!

Thank you for your beautiful free patterns.\r\n\r\nI’m about to the start Chart 1. The instructions say “pattern seen from the right side.”. I understand this to mean when I’m knitting the wrong side, I still read it from right side. How does this work for A1.b? On the wrong side, this is the first stitch after the 5 garter stitch. Am I understanding correctly? Thanks.

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 13:11:

Dear Mrs McCormack, when reading the diagram from the RS you will repeat A.1A then finish with A.1B (before the 5 front band sts). When working from WS, work the 5 front band sts, then work A.1B, and repeat A.1A (reading diagram from the left towards the right). Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Elvia McCormack 02.03.2019 - 16:27:

Hello. Thank you for all your free patterns. I have several in mind to make. Are you done publishing all the Spring & Summer collection? I didn’t see the blue with bell cream/blue striped sleeves or the multicolor poncho. Will these and others be published soon? Thank you.

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 08:35:

Dear Mrs McCormack, more patterns from our Spring & Summer collection will be published in the next weeks/months until approximately July. Happy knitting!
