EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 72 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 17) = 4.2.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch = 2 stitches decreased.

BUTTONHOLE:
Work the buttonholes on right band (when the garment is worn). 1 buttonhole = start from the wrong side and knit together the 2nd and 3rd stitch from the edge, make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
The first buttonhole is worked after approx. 1 cm from the neck edge, then the next 5-5-5-6-6 buttonholes every 5-6-6-6-7 cm.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

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

YOKE:
Cast on 72-76-80-86-92 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Sky. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above – remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – see description above. Knit 1 row where you increase 17-19-21-23-24 stitches evenly on row - READ INCREASE TIP-1! = 89-95-101-109-116 stitches on needle.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Insert a marker thread on this round and measure from here. Work according to diagrams A.1 and A.2 as follows from the right side: Work 5 band stitches in GARTER STITCH, work A.1 over 1 stitch, A.2 a total of 13-14-15-14-15 times on the row and then 5 band stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When diagrams A.1 and A.2 have been completed in height there are 219-235-251-263-281 stitches on the row. On the next row from the right side adjust stitch count to 219-235-253-261-283 stitches. Continue working stocking stitch until the piece measures 15-15-16-17-18 cm from marker thread. The next row from the right side is worked as follows: Work 5 band stitches in garter stitch, 30-32-35-36-37 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 6 new stitches under the sleeve, work 61-65-71-73-75 stitches in stocking stitch (= back piece), place the next 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a new thread (= sleeve), cast on 6 new stitches, work 30-32-35-36-37 stitches (= front piece) and 5 band stitches in garter stitch.

BODY:
There are 143-151-163-167-171 stitches on the needle. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6 new stitches which were cast on in each side. Work stocking stitch back and forth with 5 band stitches in garter stitch on each side. When the piece measures 3 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker (= 4 stitches increased) READ INCREASE TIP-2! Repeat this increase every 3-4½-5½-6½-7½ cm a total of 3 times = 155-163-175-179-183 stitches on needle. Continue working until the piece measures approx. 15-17-20-23-26 cm (or to desired length, there is approx. 2 cm until finished measurements). Work garter stitch for 2 cm. Loosely cast off with knit. Cut and fasten the thread.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the one thread on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm (= 44-48-51-53-62 stitches) and knit up 1 new stitch in each of the 6 new stitches on the body (= 50-54-57-59-68 stitches). Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round until the sleeve measures 3 cm. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - READ DECREASE TIP. Continue with stocking stitch and repeat the decrease every 4-4-4-4-3½ cm until you have decreased a total of 5-6-7-8-10 times = 40-42-43-43-48 stitches on needle. Work stocking stitch until the sleeve measures 23-28-31-35-38 cm.
Work garter stitch for 2 cm. Cast off with knit. Cut and fasten the strand.

Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY: Sew buttons onto left band.

Der må da være en fejl i opskriften 🥴 Jeg strikker str. 9/10 år. 17 m x 14 = 238 + 10 kandtm = 248 Hvordan kan det nogensinde blive til 263 m ?

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 15:20:

Hei Tina. Når du er ferdig med diagrammet har du 18 masker i hver rapport av A.2. Du øker altså 11 masker i hver rapport. Det er 14 rapporter = 252 masker. Videre har du 1 maske i A.1 og 10 kantmasker = 263 masker. God fornøyelse.

Well I'm doing pattern for size 3/4 and the stitch totals are not right. After increasing through the yoke I have 219 sts, increase 3 sts, total 222 sts. Then set up 2 fronts, back and 2 sleeves. 222-5(band)-30(front)-44(sleeve)-61(back)-44(sleeve)-30(front)-5(band)=3 remaining stitches. So why do I add 3 sts? I'll add 1 st to each front and 1st to back.

I'm doing pattern for size 7/8 and the stitch totals are off. After increasing through the yoke you have 251 sts, increase 5 sts, total 256 sts. Then set up 2 fronts, back and 2 sleeves. 256-5(band)-35(front)-51(sleeve)-71(back)-51(sleeve)-35(front)-5(band)=3 remaining stitches. Am I counting wrong? Should I add these extra sts to the back and adjust the #s in the pattern accordingly? Thank you.

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 15:38:

Dear Rachel, the pattern has been edited, you should adjust the number of sts to 253 sts in size 7/8. Happy knitting!
