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 to A.7. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 99 stitches) minus edge stitches (= 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 19) = 5.1.
In this example, decrease by knitting together approx. each 4th and 5th stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for neck on back piece):
All decreases worked from right side.
Decrease 1 stitch after the 2 stitches in garter stitch from the neck as follows: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
Decrease 1 stitch before the 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck as follows: Knit 2 together.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before A.7 under the sleeve, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, A.7, knit 2, make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work new stitches in stockinette stitch.

BUTTONHOLES (bottom up):
Work buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit together 3rd and 4th stitch from the edge and make 1 yarn over. On next row knit the yarn over = hole.
Work buttonholes when piece measures:
S: 5, 14, 23 and 32 cm = 2”, 5 1/2”, 9” and 12 1/2”.
M: 5, 14, 23 and 32 cm = 2”, 5 1/2”, 9” and 12 1/2”.
L: 6, 15, 24 and 33 cm = 2 3/8”, 6”, 9 1/2” and 13”.
XL: 5, 15, 25 and 35 cm = 2”, 6”, 9 3/4” and 13 3/4”.
XXL: 6, 16, 26 and 36 cm = 2 3/8”, 6 1/4”, 10 1/4” and 14 1/4”.
XXXL: 7, 17, 27 and 37 cm = 2 3/4”, 6 3/4”, 10 5/8” and 14 1/2”.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in sections which are sewn together to finish. Sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 99-105-111-123-135-144 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) with circular needle size 5 mm = US 8 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, (knit 1, purl 2) until there are 2 stitches left on row, knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Change to circular needle size 6 mm = US 10. Now knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 19-21-21-25-27-28 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 80-84-90-98-108-116 stitches. Work stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side until the piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm = 15 1/4”-15 3/4”-16 1/8”-16 1/2”-17”-17 1/4”. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! At the beginning of the next 2 rows bind off 1-1-1-3-4-4 stitches for armholes = 78-82-88-92-100-108 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm = 19 3/4"-20 1/2"-21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8", work garter stitch over the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 stitches on the row. When you have worked 2 ridges over these stitches work the next row from the right side as follows: Work the first 32-34-36-38-41-45 stitches and place on 1 thread for right shoulder, bind off the next 14-14-16-16-18-18 stitches for neck and work the remaining 32-34-36-38-41-45 stitches. Then finish the shoulders separately. Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the armhole, 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck and stockinette stitch over the remaining stitches. On the next row from the right side decrease 1 stitch inside the 2 stitches in garter stitch – read DECREASE TIP-2 = 31-33-35-37-40-44 stitches. Continue working until the armhole measures 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm = 6”-6 1/4”-6 3/4”-7”-7 1/2”-8”. Bind off. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4" from the shoulder down. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 54-57-60-66-72-75 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in side and 4 band stitches towards mid front) with circular needle size 5 mm = US 8 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 4 band stitches in garter stitch, (knit 1, purl 2) until there are 2 stitches left on row, knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this rib back and forth for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Change to circular needle size 6 mm = US 10. Work the next row from the right side as follows: Work A.1 over the first 16 stitches (the first 4 stitches in garter stitch = band), stockinette stitch until there is 1 stitch left on row, at the same time as you decrease 10-11-11-13-14-13 stitches evenly spaced and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 44-46-49-53-58-62 stitches. Continue back and forth like this and repeat A.1 in height. Remember BUTTONHOLES! When the piece measures 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm = 13”-13 3/8”-13 3/4”-14 1/4”-14 1/2”-15”, work A.2 over A.1. When A.2 has been completed in height you have decreased 6 stitches for neck. Continue this pattern and decrease in the same way until you have decreased a total of 12-12-13-13-14-14 stitches for the neck. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm = 15 1/4”-15 3/4”-16 1/8”-16 1/2”-17”-17 1/4”, bind off 1-1-1-3-4-4 stitches for armhole on the next row from the side. When all decreases for neck and armhole are finished there are 31-33-35-37-40-44 stitches on the needle. Continue with A.3 over the outermost 7 stitches towards the neck, stockinette stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the armhole until the armhole measures 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm = 6”-6 1/4”-6 3/4”-7”-7 1/2”-7” – adjust to match the back piece. Bind off. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4" from the shoulder down.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 54-57-60-66-72-75 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in side and 4 band stitches towards mid front) with circular needle size 5 mm = US 8 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, (knit 1, purl 2) until there are 5 stitches left on row, knit 1 and 4 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue this rib back and forth for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Change to circular needle size 6 mm = US 10. Work the next row from the right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, stockinette stitch until there are 16 stitches left at the same time as you decrease 10-11-11-13-14-13 stitches evenly spaced and then A.4 over the last 16 stitches (the last 4 stitches in garter stitch = band) = 44-46-49-53-58-62 stitches.
Continue back and forth like this and repeat A.4 in height. When the piece measures 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm = 13”-13 3/8”-13 3/4”-14 1/4”-14 1/2”-15”, work A.5 over A.4. When A.5 has been completed in height you have decreased 6 stitches for neck. Continue this pattern and decrease in the same way until you have decreased a total of 12-12-13-13-14-14 stitches for neck. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm = 15 1/4”-15 3/4”-16 1/8”-16 1/2”-17”-17 1/4”, bind off 1-1-1-3-4-4 stitches for armhole on the next row from the side. When all decreases for neck and armhole are finished there are 31-33-35-37-40-44 stitches on the needle. Continue with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, stockinette stitch and A.6 over the outermost 7 stitches towards the neck until the armhole measures 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm = 6”-6 1/4”-6 3/4”-7”-7 1/2”-8” – adjust to match the right front piece and back piece. Bind off. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4" from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Cast on 42-42-45-48-48-51 stitches with double pointed needles size 5 mm = US 8. Knit 1 round 1. Then work rib (knit 1, purl 2) for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Change to double pointed needles size 6 mm = US 10. The next round is worked as follows: Knit 2, work A.7 over the next 2 stitches, knit to end of round at the same time as you decrease 9-8-8-10-9-11 stitches evenly spaced = 33-34-37-38-39-40 stitches. Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and A.7 mid under sleeve. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 8-9-9-9-8-8 cm = 3 1/8”-3 1/2”-3 1/2”-3 1/2”-3 1/8”-3 1/8”, increase 1 stitch on each side of A.7 – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Increase alternately every 6 and 7 cm = 2 3/8” and 2 3/4” a total of 6 times.
Size M: Increase every 5 cm = 2” a total of 7 times.
Size L: Increase every 5 cm = 2” a total of 7 times.
Size XL: Increase every 4 cm = 1 1/2” a total of 8 times.
Size XXL: Increase alternately every 3 and 4 cm = 1 1/8” and 1 1/2” a total of 9 times.
Size XXXL: Increase every 3 cm = 1 1/8” a total of 10 times.
When all the increases are finished there are 45-48-51-54-57-60 stitches on the needles.
Then continue in the different sizes as follows:
Sizes S, M and L
Continue working until the piece measures 47-47-46 cm = 18 1/2”-18 1/2”-18” (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders). Bind off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.
Sizes XL, XXL and XXXL:
Continue working until the piece measures 44-41-39 cm = 17 1/4”-16 1/8”-15 1/4” (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders). Finish the round in the middle of diagram A.7 (= mid under sleeve). Now continue back and forth with stockinette stitch over all stitches, so that you can sew the sleeve to the armhole. When you have worked back and forth with stockinette stitch for 2-3-3 cm = 3/4”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”, the sleeve measures a total of 46-44-42 cm = 18”-17 1/4”-16 1/2”. Bind off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams with grafting stitches inside the bind off edge. Sew sleeves to body. Sew side seams inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. Sew buttons to left band.

Beim Armausschnitt des Rückenteils heißt es für Größe M „für die nächsten 2 Reihen beidseitig eine Masche abnehmen“, es sind 84 Maschen auf der Nadel. Dann heißt es danach sind 82 auf der Nadel, müssten es dann nicht nur 80 sein? Muss ich nun insgesamt 2 oder 4 Maschen abnehmen?

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 10:03:

Liebe Cindy, am Anfang der nächsten beiden Reihen ketten Sie 1 Masche ab, dh nach der 1. Reihe haben Sie 1 M am Anfang der Reihe abgekettet (= 83 M bleiben), wenden, am Anfang der nächsten Reihe 1 M abketten = 82 M sind jetzt übrig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hi! I’m making a cardigan using written pattern for the first time and got a little stuck on this moment: “When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm, work garter stitch over the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 stitches on the row.“ Could you please advise what I would need to do with stitches on the left and right of those middle ones? Thank you!

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 01:43:

Dear Natalia, the middle stitches knit with garter stitch to give the neck a bit of an edge that does not roll. All the other stitches should be knitted as before, unless otherwise stated. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Cindy 25.05.2019 - 10:27:

Hallo, meinen Sie die Jacke wird auch mit der Bomull Lin als Alternative gut aussehen? Dann ist die Jacke fast doppelt so dick wie Original. Oder jetzt für den Sommer mit der Brushed Alpaca Silk, wofür man jedoch nur knapp die Hälfte an Garn benötigt?

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 09:53:

Liebe Cindy, dieses Modell wird mit Air (= Garngruppe C) gestrickt, Sie können ein anderes Garn derselben Garngruppe = C benutzen = gleiche Maschenprobe aber, da unterschiedlichen Garne auch unterschiedliche Struckturen haben, wird das fertige Strickstück unterschiedlich aussehen - hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen - Ihr DROPS Laden wird Ihnen gerne weiterhelfen, eine Alternative zu finden. Garnumrechner können Sie auch benutzen, um die neue Garnmenge zu kalkulieren. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg har strikket trøjen i den størrelsen jeg plejer at bruge men trøjen er alt for stor - nu har jeg strikket den i den mindste størrelse og den passer fint - jeg tror størrelserne i opskriften er forkerte

Alex 03.04.2019 - 20:00:

Hei. Det mangler tegninger til beskrivelsen av mønsteret som skal lages på denne. Boksene er tomme. Å er det meningen av høyre forstykke skal ha 3 rettmasker i vrangborden under armen? For har følgt det dere beskriver og da ender det opp slik på største str. 😊

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 15:19:

Hej Alex, jo diagrammer og diagramtekster finder du nederst i opskriften samme med måleskitsen. God fornøjelse!

Carol 21.01.2019 - 17:05:
