EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PIECE:

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

MOSS STITCH:
ROW 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-*, until there is 1 stitch left on row, knit 1.
ROW 2: Purl over knit and knit over purl.
Repeat row 2.

INCREASE TIP-1:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch inside the 5 moss stitches in each side. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch – until there are enough stitches to work a complete repeat of the lace pattern on each side of the piece. NOTE: there should always be at least 2 stitches in stocking stitch inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, before working another repeat of lace pattern, as shown on row 13 in patterns A.1 and A.3.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 111 stitches) minus 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side (= 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 10.9. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 11th stitch. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

VEST - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, top down and sewn together in the sides under the sleeves.

VEST:
Cast on 91-99-107-115 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Work MOSS STITCH - see description above, for 10 cm – adjust so that the next row is worked from the right side. Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, A.1 over the next 10 stitches, A.2 until there are 8 stitches left on the row (= 9-10-11-12 repeats in width), A.3 over the next 7 stitches, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this pattern back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 21-23-25-26 cm cast on 4 new stitches at the end of the next 2 rows for sleeves = 99-107-115-123 stitches. Continue with pattern as follows: 5 stitches in moss stitch, pattern as before until there are 5 stitches left on row, 5 stitches in moss stitch. When the piece measures 52-60-66-70 cm increase 1 stitch inside the 5 stitches in moss stitch on each side - read INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every row from the right side a total of 10-10-11-11 times, AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 36-40-44-46 cm from where you cast on stitches for the sleeves, cast off the first 4 stitches on the next 2 rows (= 1 edge stitch in each side. This edge stitch is worked in garter stitch). Continue increases inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When all increases are finished there are 111-119-129-137 stitches on the row. Continue with pattern and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side until the piece measures 11-13-15-16 cm from where stitches were cast off for sleeves – but adjust so that the pattern ends after a complete lace pattern in height (i.e. after row 8 or row 16 in the diagrams). If there is not room for a complete lace pattern in height, work stocking stitch for a few rows before continuing as follows: Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 10-12-14-16 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 121-131-143-153 stitches. Now work moss stitch back and forth over all stitches for 10 cm. The piece measures approx. 80-88-96-100 cm. Cast off, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight make 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches).

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the under-sleeve and side seams in one go – see broken line on sketch. Sew inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. Cut and fasten the strand.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to leave a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= the sketch shows the garment after assembly

Jeg har spurgt indtil hvordan jeg kan gøre denne model længere. Det mener I ikke kan lade sig gøre. Så jeg vil høre om I har en opskrift I kan anbefale som jeg kan bruge i stedet for

DROPS Design 09.07.2019 kl. 11:13:

Hej Helle, det er fordi det vil påvirke ærmerne... Men du kan jo altid strikke kanten længere ved hjælp af vendepinde, så det kun bliver selve længden det påvirker. Her ser du vores veste: vest God fornøjelse!

Helle Beier 20.06.2019 - 20:23:

Hej. Jeg vil rigtig gerne lave denne model ca 30 cm længere bagpå. Men jeg er meget i tvivl om Hvor i forhold til udtagningerne jeg skal forlænge. Kan I hjælpe mig med det??

DROPS Design 05.07.2019 kl. 12:45:

Hej Helle, vi kan desværre ikke hjælpe dig med det. Modellen er ikke så traditionel så man bare kan forlænge uden at det påvirker ærmerne... Held og lykke :)

Szénási Enikő 23.05.2019 - 16:45:

Sziasztok! Még csak az elején vagyok a kötésnek, de a magyar fordítás hibás a rizsmintánál. A második sor helyesen: simára fordítottat, fordítottra simát kötünk. Kérlek javítsátok

DROPS Design 25.05.2019 kl. 10:36:

Kedves Enikő! Köszönjük, a hiba javításra került! További sikeres kézimunkázást!

Helle Andersen 18.05.2019 - 10:22:

Er det muligt at få hjælp til omregning af maskeantal, når jeg gerne vil strikke den i DROPS air mix?

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 08:02:

Hei Helle. Du kan strikke etter denne oppskriften om du strikker med 2 tråder DROPS Air, da dette skal gi tilsvarende strikkefasthet. Evt kan du strikke med 1 tråd Air, og 1 tråd av et annet garn i garngruppe C. Lag deg en strikkeprøve så du er sikker. Om du vil strikke med 1 tråd Air innebærer dette at alle maskeantall må regnes om etter ny strikkefasthet. Du må gjerne gjøre dette selv, men vi har dessverre ikke mulighet til å gjøre det for deg. Ta da utgangaspunkt i de ønskede målene, og gang med strikkefastheten i bredden (feks 120 cm x 1,7 maske per cm = 204 masker). God fornøyelse

Super beau

Annica Gustafsson 14.03.2019 - 14:29:

Om jag vill göra denna men i stället väljer att göra den i Drops Bomull-Lin 2 trådar i ställer, går det då åt dubbla garnmängden?

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 10:40:

Hej. Du kan använda vår konverterare (klicka här) för att se hur många gram det går åt i ett alternativt garn. Du fyller i vilket garn du vill ersätta, hur många gram samt hur många trådar det stickas med och du får då fram flera olika alternativ (bl.a. bomull-lin). Lycka till!

Mindy 09.03.2019 - 16:23:

With respect of the placement of the charts, is this pattern worked right to left? Thanks

DROPS Design 10.03.2019 kl. 16:39:

Dear Mindy, yes, you should read RS rows (rows 1., 3., 5., 7. etc) from right to left, and WS rows from (all purl rows) from left to right. Happy Knitting!

Martine HOUSSAY 22.02.2019 - 09:51:

Bonjour, pour une taille XXL combien faut-il de pelotes ? Merci. Cordialement Martine HOUSSAY

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 14:36:

Bonjour Mme Houssay, la quantité nécessaire pour chaque taille figure toujours au poids dans l'en-tête, ainsi, en XXL il vous faudra 800g DROPS Eskimo/50 g la pelote = 16 pelotes Eskimo. Bon tricot!

Karine 20.02.2019 - 10:13:

Est ce un modèle pour débutante ?

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 09:52:

Lisez attentivement les explications, et si vous avez une question ou un doute, n'hésitez pas à utiliser cet espace pour demander. Votre magasin DROPS saura également vous conseiller, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!
