EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.8. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.5, A.6 and A.7). Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
All increases are done from the right side.
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 134 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining 124 stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 26) = 4.7. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately approx. every 4th and 5th stitch. Do not increase over bands. On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase for raglan in every transition between front/back piece and sleeves as follows: Begin 1 stitch before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at the marker thread and 8 stitches increased in total on row)
On next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to make a hole. Then work the new stitch in stocking stitch on body and in lace pattern on sleeves. 

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
All increases are done from the right side.
Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 6 (marker thread is in the middle of these 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at the marker thread and 4 stitches increased in total on row). On next row (wrong side) purl yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 stitches (marker thread is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). Decrease for first buttonhole on first row from right side when edge in garter stitch in the neck has been worked. Then decrease the next 5-5-5-5-6-6 buttonholes, approx. 8-8-8½-9-8-8 cm apart.
1 BUTTONHOLE = decrease from right side when 3 stitches remain on row, make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together and knit last stitch. On next row (wrong side) knit the yarn over to make a hole.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work neck edge and 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, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/short circular needle, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 130-134-138-142-148-156 stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 6-26-22-38-32-44 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 and remember BUTTONHOLES on right band = 136-160-160-180-180-200 stitches. Purl 1 row (work bands in garter stitch and purl yarn overs twisted). Then work yoke as explained below.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Insert 4 marker threads in piece as explained below (without working the stitches). Use marker threads when increasing for raglan.
Count 25-31-31-36-36-41 stitches (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch, count 23 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch, count 40-52-52-62-62-72 stitches (= back piece), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch, count 23 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch. There are 25-31-31-36-36-41 stitches after last marker thread on front piece.
Work first row as follows from right side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, work in stocking stitch until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, increase for RAGLAN on each side of marker thread – read explanation above, work A.1 over the next 21 stitches (= sleeve), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work in stocking stitch until 1 stitch remains before next marker thread (= back piece), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work A.1 over the 21 stitches (= sleeve), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work in stocking stitch until 5 stitches remain on row and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch (= front piece).
Continue pattern like this with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front, stocking stitch on front and back piece and A.1 on sleeves. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME continue increase for raglan on every other row (i.e. on every row from right side) until increase has been done 25-25-31-31-37-37 times in total at every marker thread (including increase explained on first row). Work the new stitch in stocking stitch on front and back piece and in lace pattern the way diagrams show on sleeves.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue lace pattern on sleeves as explained below:
LACE PATTERN SLEEVE:
SIZE S and M: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.6 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.
SIZE L and XL: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.
SIZE XXL and XXXL: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked, work next row as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.6 over the next 72 stitches (= 6 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.

ALL SIZES:
When increases for raglan are done, there are 336-360-408-428-476-496 stitches on round. Continue lace pattern as explained above until last row in A.5 and A.7 remains.
Now divide yoke for body and sleeves and work last row as follows from wrong side: Work the first 54-57-64-67-77-81 stitches as before (= front piece), slip the next 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 98-104-118-124-144-152 stitches as before (= back piece), slip the next 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the 54-57-64-67-77-81 stitches as before (= front piece). Yoke measures now approx. 20-20-24-24-27-27 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Remove the marker threads in piece. Now finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 222-234-262-278-318-338 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side on body, in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 stitches that were cast on under sleeves. Move the marker threads upwards when working; they should be used for increase later in the sides.
Continue back and forth in stocking stitch with 5 band stitches in garter stitch in each side towards mid front.
When piece measures 4 cm from division in all sizes, increase 1 stitch on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 5 cm 5 times in total in all sizes = 242-254-282-298-338-358 stitches. Work until piece measures approx. 28-30-28-30-29-31 cm from division (or desired length, approx. 2 cm remain until finished measurements). Knit 1 row from right side while increasing 58-62-70-74-82-86 stitches evenly = 300-316-352-372-420-444 stitches. This is done to avoid the rib to be worked, from contracting.
Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work next row as follows from wrong side: 5 band stitches in garter stitch, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* until 7 stitches remain on needle, purl 2 and finish with 5 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this for 2 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Jacket measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles or a short circular needle size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 73-79-89-95-99-103 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 stitches under sleeve. Move the marker thread upwards when working; it should be used for decrease under sleeve.
Begin round at the marker thread and work as follows: Work 4-7-6-9-5-7 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.8 (= 5 stitches), work A.3 over the next 60-60-72-72-84-84 stitches (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 repetitions of 12 stitches) and finish with 4-7-6-9-5-7 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue pattern like this (the lace pattern continues nicely over sleeve).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3-3-3-2-2-2 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3½-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm 11-13-17-19-20-21 times in total = 51-53-55-57-59-61 stitches - NOTE: Work stitches that do not fit the lace pattern when decreasing under sleeve, in stocking stitch.
Work until piece measures approx. 40-40-37-37-35-35 cm from division (or desired length, approx. 4 cm remain until finished measurements). NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke.
Knit 1 round while increasing 17-15-17-19-17-19 stitches evenly = 68-68-72-76-76-80 stitches. This is done to avoid the rib to be worked, from contracting. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Sleeve measures approx. 44-44-41-41-39-39 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on to the left band.

ROBERTA RONCAGLIA 05.04.2019 - 17:57:

Buonasera mi piacerebbe fare questo cardigan. e' possibile farlo coi ferri normali? Come devo trasformare le istruzioni? Grazie. Roberta

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 18:47:

Buonasera Roberta! Se preferite lavorare in piano, invece che in tondo, dovrete naturalmente fare delle modifiche al modello in modo da lavorare le parti separatamente e poi assemblarle alla fine. Dividere le maglie del corpo in 2, aggiungere 1 maglia di vivagno a ogni lato (per la cucitura) e lavorare il davanti e il dietro in modo separato. Vedere la lezione DROPS: Posso adattare un modello disegnato per i ferri circolari ai ferri dritti?. Buon lavoro!

Tiziana 19.03.2019 - 14:15:

Devo segnalare un altro problema. Alla fine dello sprone, quando devo dividere le maglie, mi ritrovo 50 per ogni lato del davanti, 73 per ogni manica e 90 per il dietro. Ho controllato il testo e prendendo ad esempio le maniche, 23 punti di partenza più 50 di aumenti in tutto per il raglan fa 73, poi però quando devo dividere, il testo mi dice di prendere 65 per manica. Grazie.

Tiziana 18.03.2019 - 18:55:

Buonasera, ho fatto i 25 aumenti per il raglan, ma sul ferro ho 336 maglie invece delle 326 indicate nel modello. C'è un errore nelle spiegazioni oppure ho sbagliato io? Grazie

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 00:18:

Buongiorno Tiziana. Abbiamo corretto il numero delle maglie nel testo. Le maglie sono, per la taglia S, 336. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!
