EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

STRIPES YOKE:
Work stripes in stockinette stitch, top down as follows:
9-9-10-10-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-3 1/2”-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” with color 15, purple haze,
9-9-10-10-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-3 1/2”-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” with color 14, heather,
0-2-2-4-4-6 cm = 0”-3/4”-3/4”-1 1/2”-1 1/2”-2 3/8” with color 08, light pink.

STRIPES BODY:
Work stripes in stockinette stitch, top down as follows:
9-7-8-6-7-5 cm = 3 1/2”-2 3/4”-3 1/8”-2 3/8”-2 3/4”-2” with color 08, light pink (i.e. the stripe in light pink is 9-9-10-10-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-3 1/2”-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” in total including rounds from yoke),
9-9-10-10-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-3 1/2”-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” with color 27, sea green,
9-11-9-11-9-11 cm = 3 1/2”-4 3/8”-3 1/2”-4 3/8”-3 1/2”-4 3/8” (or until finished measurements) with color 16, blue.

STRIPES SLEEVE:
Work stripes in the round in stockinette stitch, top down as follows:
13-11-11-9-9-8 cm = 5 1/8”-4 3/8”-4 3/8”-3 1/2”-3 1/2”-3 1/8” with color 08, light pink (i.e. the stripe in light pink is 13-13-13-13-13-14 cm = 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/2” in total including rounds from yoke),
13-13-13-13-13-14 cm = 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/8”- 5 1/2” with color 27, sea green,
20-21-19-20-18-17 cm = 8”- 8 1/4”-7 1/2”-8”-7”-6 3/4” (or until finished measurements) with color 16, blue.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase for raglan on each side of the 4 markers in every transition between sleeves and body as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased on each side of marker and 8 stitches increased in total on row.) On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeves):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 112 stitches), minus edge stitches (2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 26) = 4.2.
In this example decrease by working approx. every 3rd and 4th stitch together.

KNITTING TIP (applies to sleeve length):
Length on sleeves can be adjusted as explained in pattern but note that the sleeve length should be a bit longer than usual to make the sleeve baggy at the bottom.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work yoke back and forth on circular needle from mid front, work top down. Now divide yoke for body and sleeves. Work body back and forth from mid front, top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/short circular needle, top down. Work bands along mid front and finish with a neck edge. Work entire garment in stockinette stitch with stripes and edges in rib.

YOKE:
Read all of the following section on yoke before working!
Cast on 102-106-114-114-118-126 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 5.5 mm = US 9 with purple haze. Purl 1 row (= wrong side).
Insert 4 marker in piece as follows (without working the stitches): Count 20-21-22-22-23-25 stitches (= front piece), insert 1 marker before next stitch, count 12-12-14-14-14-14 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker before next stitch, count 38-40-42-42-44-48 stitches (= back piece), insert 1 marker before next stitch, count 12-12-14-14-14-14 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker before next stitch. There are 20-21-22-22-23-25 stitches after last marker on front piece.
Work STRIPES YOKE with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH in each side towards mid front - read explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above. Increase for raglan like this on every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 18-20-21-24-26-28 times in total = 246-266-282-306-326-350 stitches. After last increase piece measures approx. 18-20-22-24-26-28 cm = 7”-8”-8 3/4”-9 1/2”-10 1/4”-11” from neck edge mid front. If the garment is shorter than this, continue until correct measurements.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work 38-41-43-47-51-56 stitches as before (= front piece), slip the next 48-52-56-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 74-80-84-92-100-110 stitches as before (= back piece), slip the next 48-52-56-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the 38-41-43-47-51-56 stitches as before (= front piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 162-174-186-202-222-242 stitches. Work STRIPES BODY - read explanation above, with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side towards mid front. When piece measures 21 cm = 8 1/4” from division in all sizes, knit 1 row from wrong side while increasing 2 stitches evenly in all sizes = 164-176-188-204-224-244 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7. Work next row as follows from right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. Loosely bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight bind-off edge bind off with circular needle size 5.5 mm = US 9 (this applies to all bind-off edge on this garment). Jacket measures approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm = 20 1/2”-21 1/4”-22”-22 3/4”-23 5/8”-24 3/8” from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 48-52-56-60-62-64 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece double pointed needles/a short circular needle size 5.5 mm = US 9 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 54-58-64-68-72-74 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Use marker thread later when increasing under sleeve.
Work STRIPES SLEEVE - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm from division in all sizes, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3½-3½-3½-3-3-3 cm = 1 1/4”-1 1/4”-1 1/4”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8” 9-9-8-8-8-8 times in total = 72-76-80-84-88-90 stitches.
Continue to work until sleeve measures approx. 39-38-36-35-33-32 cm = 15 1/4”-15”-14 1/4”-13 3/4”-13”-12 1/2” from division (approx. 7 cm = 2 3/4” remain until finished measurements - read KNITTING TIP). NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke.
Knit 1 round while decreasing 0-4-0-4-0-2 stitches evenly = 72-72-80-80-88-88 stitches. On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 36-36-40-40-44-44 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm = US 7. Work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. Loosely bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Sleeve measures approx. 46-45-43-42-40-39 cm = 18”-17 3/4”-17”-16 1/2”-15 3/4”-15 1/4” from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

LEFT BAND:
Pick up from right side inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, approx. 85 to 109 stitches along left front piece on circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7 with blue (number of stitches should be divisible by 4 + 1).
Work first row as follows from wrong side: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 stitches remain on needle, purl 2 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 2½-3 cm = 1”-1 1/8”. Loosely bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

RIGHT BAND:
Pick up from right side inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, approx. 85 to 109 stitches along right front piece on circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7 with blue (number of stitches should be divisible by 4 + 1).
Work first row as follows from wrong side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, purl 2 and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this but after approx. 1-1½ cm = 3/8”-1/2” decrease evenly for 5-5-5-6-6-6 buttonholes. Bottom buttonhole should be approx. 2-3 cm = 3/4”-1 1/8” from bottom edge, and top buttonhole approx. 5-6 cm = 2”-2 3/8” from neck edge. 1 buttonhole = work 2 stitches together and make 1 yarn over - Note: Decreasing in the purl sections will look more pretty (from right side). Continue rib until it measure the same as left band. Loosely bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 112-116-124-124-128-136 stitches along the entire neck on circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7 with blue. Purl 1 row from wrong side while decreasing evenly to 86-90-94-98-102-106 stitches – read DECREASE TIP! Work next row as follows from right side: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this but after approx. 1-1½ cm = 3/8”-1/2” bind off for 1 buttonhole over the other holes on right band. Continue until neck edge measures approx. 3 cm = 1 1/8”, bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Nå er det mulig jeg surrer fælt, men jeg har lest meg blind på oppskriften. I forklaringen til oppskriften står det at alle striper strikkes i glattstrikk. I selve oppskriften står det på sin side: strikkes i rillestrikk. Er ikke rillestrikk å strikke rett på alle pinner, også fra vrangsiden? Hva er det jeg ikke får med meg? 😅

DROPS Design 13.09.2019 kl. 07:30:

Hei Karete, Kant maskene er strikket i rille, resten av stykket er strikket i glattstrikk. God fornøyelse!

Tine 14.07.2019 - 10:43:

Kan man strikke den i sky og så evt gå en størrelse op?

DROPS Design 26.08.2019 kl. 13:20:

Hei Tine. Nei, denne jakken er strikket i et garn fra garngruppe C, mens garnet DROPS Sky tilhører garngruppe B (tynnere garn), slik at resultatet vil ikke bli det samme. mvh Drops design

Karen 18.06.2019 - 07:37:

Er trøjen strikket i dobbelttråd?

DROPS Design 18.06.2019 kl. 07:51:

Hei Karen. Nei, denne er strikket med enkel tråd. Hadde det vært strikket med dobbel tråd ville dette stått tydelig forklart under instruksjonene for opplegg. God fornøyelse

Julie 11.05.2019 - 08:44:

Fin jakke som jeg skal prøve meg på. Lurer på om det går å strikke den rundt og rundt, og klippe opp på midten fremme etterpå? Er ikke så glad i å strikke vrang.

DROPS Design 11.05.2019 kl. 11:41:

Hei Julie, Det kan du gjerne og strikke båndene til slutt. Bare husk å legg til noen masker i bredden for å erstatte maskene du taper etter klippinga. God fornøyelse!

Suzie 16.02.2019 - 15:51:

Ce gilet est SUPERBE et je vais surement essayer de le tricoter malgré qu'il semble un peu compliqué....

Ida 15.02.2019 - 22:12:

Hei! Lurer på hvor mye garn man må beregne om man ønsker å strikke jakken i en farge?

DROPS Design 19.02.2019 kl. 15:17:

Hei Ida. Du kan få en ide om garnmengde ved å se på modell 186-30, denne er ensfarget og strikket i Air. Du må nok bergne litt mer garn pga ballongermene. God fornøyelse

Kristien 06.02.2019 - 16:31:

Heel mooi model, wanneer komt het patroon?

Aljona 02.02.2019 - 00:01:

Fin Model och fina färger !!!
