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.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at each marker thread and 4 stitches increased on row). On the next row knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sides of sleeves):
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease after the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch as follows: Knit 2 twisted together.
Decrease before the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the edge stitch and knit 2 together.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes from the right side on the right band (when the garment is worn). 1 BUTTONHOLE = Purl third and fourth stitch from the edge together and make 1 yarn over. On the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn over to leave a hole.
Work buttonholes when the piece measures:
S: 18, 25 and 32 cm
M: 18, 26 and 34 cm
L: 19, 27 and 35 cm
XL: 19, 25, 31 and 37 cm
XXL: 20, 26, 32 and 38 cm
XXXL: 22, 28, 34 and 40 cm
NOTE: The last of these 3-3-3-4-4-4 buttonholes is worked on the first row when knitting up stitches for the neck.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle from mid front, bottom up as far as the armholes. Then cast off for armholes and the front and back pieces are continued separately back and forth on needle. The sleeves are worked back and forth with circular needle, bottom up. The garment is sewn together to finish.

BODY:
Cast on 179-195-219-243-267-299 stitches (including 5 band stitches on each side towards mid front) with circular needle size 3.5 mm and 2 strands Kid-Silk (this is done to avoid the cast-on edge being tight). Remove 1 strand and continue with just 1 strand Kid-Silk as follows: Work 2 RIDGES – read description above, but the outermost 5 stitches on each side are purled on all rows to finished length (= bands – when the bands are purled on each row they will be distinct from the rest of the garment).
After the 2 ridges, work the next row from the right side as follows: 5 purled band stitches, work A.1 (= 4 stitches), work A.2 until there are 10 stitches left on row (= 20-22-25-28-31-35 repeats of 8 stitches), work A.3 (= 5 stitches) and finish with 5 purled band stitches. Continue this pattern until you have worked 3 repeats in height. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! The piece now measures approx. 9 cm from the cast-on edge.
Insert 1 marker thread 47-51-57-63-69-77 stitches in from each side (= 85-93-105-117-129-145 stitches between marker threads on back piece). Allow the threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when increasing in the sides.
Work garter stitch back and forth over all stitches; the bands are purled on each row as before.
When the piece measures 10 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 4-4-5-5-5-6 cm a total of 4 times on each side = 195-211-235-259-283-315 stitches. Remember BUTTONHOLES on right band – read description above! Continue working until the piece measures 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm.
Now cast off for the armholes; i.e. the next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: Work 48-52-56-61-67-74 stitches as before (= left front piece), cast off 6-6-10-12-12-14 stitches for armhole (i.e. cast off 3-3-5-6-6-7 stitches on each side of the marker thread), knit 87-95-103-113-125-139 stitches (= back piece), cast off 6-6-10-12-12-14 stitches for armhole (e. cast off 3-3-5-6-6-7 stitches on each side of the marker thread) and work the remaining 48-52-56-61-67-74 stitches as before (= right front piece). Front and back pieces are continued separately.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE (when garment is worn):
= 48-52-56-61-67-74 stitches. Continue back and forth with garter stitch and 5 purled band stitches towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME cast off for the armhole at the beginning of each row from the side as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 0-1-1-2-2-3 times and then 1 stitch 1-2-5-6-10-14 times = 47-48-49-51-53-54 stitches left on front piece. Continue working until the piece measures 32-34-35-37-38-40 cm. Now place the outermost 8-8-9-9-10-10 stitches towards mid front on 1 thread for neck, but to avoid having to cut the strand you are working with, work the stitches before putting them on the thread.
Then cast off for the neck at the beginning of the each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 3 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 4 times and 1 stitch 4 times = 24-25-25-27-28-29 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk (this is done to avoid the cast-off edge being tight).

LEFT FRONT PIECE (when garment is worn):
= 48-52-56-61-67-74 stitches. Continue back and forth with garter stitch and 5 purled band stitches towards mid front. AT THE SAME TIME cast off for the armhole at the beginning of each row from the side as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 0-1-1-2-2-3 times and then 1 stitch 1-2-5-6-10-14 times = 47-48-49-51-53-54 stitches left on front piece. Continue working until the piece measures 32-34-35-37-38-40 cm. Now place the outermost 8-8-9-9-10-10 stitches towards mid front on 1 thread for neck, but to avoid having to cut the strand you are working with, work the stitches before putting them on the thread.
Then cast off for the neck at the beginning of the each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 3 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 4 times and 1 stitch 4 times = 24-25-25-27-28-29 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk.

BACK PIECE:
= 87-95-103-113-125-139 stitches. Continue back and forth with garter stitch over all stitches. AT THE SAME TIME cast off for the armholes at the beginning of each row on each side as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 0-1-1-2-2-3 times and then 1 stitch 1-2-5-6-10-14 times = 85-87-89-93-97-99 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm. Now cast off the middle 33-33-35-35-37-37 stitches for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue back and forth with garter stitch and cast off 2 stitches on the next row from the neck = 24-25-25-27-28-29 stitches left. Continue working until the piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk.
Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 56-58-60-62-64-66 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) with circular needle size 3 mm and 2 strands Kid-Silk. Remove the one strand and continue with just 1 strand Kid-Silk as follows: Work 5 ridges back and forth over all stitches. On the next row increase 1 stitch in each stitch by knitting in both the front and back loops in all stitches on the row = 112-116-120-124-128-132 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work garter stitch back and forth over all stitches. When the piece measures 5 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side – read DECREASE TIP (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 1½ cm a total of 18-17-16-15-14-14 times on each side = 76-82-88-94-100-104 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 33-33-31-31-30-28 cm. Now cast off stitches on each side for sleeve cap at the beginning of each row on each side as follows: Cast off 3 stitches 1 time on each side, 2 stitches 3-3-5-6-6-6 times on each side and 1 stitch 3-4-6-7-9-16 times on each side. Then cast off 2 stitches on each side until the piece measures approx. 37-38-38-39-39-40 cm. Cast off 3 stitches 1 time on each side and then cast off the remaining stitches with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk. The sleeve measures approx. 38-39-39-40-40-41 cm from the top down. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY: 
Sew shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge. Sew sleeve seams inside the 1 edge stitch on each side. Sew in sleeves - sew in outermost loop of outermost stitch along the armhole. Sew buttons onto left band.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 114 to 130 stitches around the neck (including the stitches on the threads at front) with circular needle size 3 mm and 1 strand Kid-Silk remember to work the last buttonhole on the right band AT THE SAME TIME.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side, knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk.

Wat bedoelt u in de beschrijving met: als het kledingstuk gedragen wordt?

DROPS Design 01.09.2019 kl. 13:13:

Dag Carina,

Hiermee wordt de positie bedoeld gezien zoals het kledingstuk gedragen wordt. Dus bijvoorbeeld bij de knopen zitten de knoopsgaten op de rechter voorbies als je het vest aan hebt.

Joanna 20.07.2019 - 17:38:

Witam, czy zamykanie oczek na zaokrąglenie rękawa odbywa się na każdej stronie robótki, bez względu na to czy to lewa czy prawa strona? Pozdrawiam

DROPS Design 21.07.2019 kl. 21:51:

Witaj Joanno! Zamykasz oczka z każdej strony (z prawej i lewej strony robótki) zawsze na początku rzędu, np. ‘zamknąć 1 raz 3 oczka z każdej strony’ oznacza zamknąć 3 o. na początku rzędu na prawej stronie robótki, a następnie zamknąć 3 o. na początku rzędu w kolejnym rzędzie (na lewej stronie robótki). Pozdrawiamy i życzmy miłej pracy!

Kjersti 05.07.2019 - 14:12:

Hva betyr trekant over tre ruter i mønsterrapporten?

DROPS Design 05.07.2019 kl. 14:33:

Hej Kjersti, du finder symbolforklaringen nederst i opskriften. = ta 1 maske løs av pinnen som om den skulle strikkes rett, strikk 2 rett sammen, løft den løse masken over maskene som ble strikket sammen

Eline 14.05.2019 - 19:11:

Jeg leser at jeg skal legge opp med to tråder og deretter «ta bort» den ene tråden. Betyr det at jeg skal trekke ut den ene tråden igjen etterpå (går det i det hele tatt?) eller at jeg skal strikke videre kun med den ene og bare feste enden av den tråden jeg ikke bruker videre?

DROPS Design 15.05.2019 kl. 07:21:

Hei Eline, Du skal bare avslutte med dobbeltråd (feste enden) og fortsette med enkel tråd. Å bruke dobbeltråd når man legger opp gjør at kanten blir mer elastisk. God fornøyelse!

Margareta Carlsson 14.05.2019 - 10:49:

Jag tänker sticka den här koftan i svart. Är det bra att göra det? Kommer mönstret att synas? Vilket annat garn i grupp A är lämpligt att använda till detta mönster?

DROPS Design 15.05.2019 kl. 11:03:

Hej Margareta. Jag tror att mönstret kommer att synas bra även i svart. Vi har inget annat garn i garngrupp A som ger samma lätta och luftiga uttryck som kidsilk, men så länge du är medveten om det så kan du byta ut det mot vilket annat garn som helst i garngrupp A. Läs gärna mer om att byta ut ett garn mot ett annat här. Lycka till!

Mila 11.05.2019 - 09:57:

Zitat: ".....Maschen am vorderen Rand für den Halsausschnitt stilllegen, dabei die Maschen vor dem Stilllegen stricken, um zu vermeiden, dass die Maschen stillgelegt werden müssen." Wie soll ich das verstehen? Danke.

DROPS Design 13.05.2019 kl. 08:53:

Liebe Mila, stricken Sie die ersten 8-9-10 Maschen der Hinreihe und legen Sie diese Maschen auf einem Faden still, die Hinreihe weiterstricken. So wird der Faden nicht abgeschnitten und die genaue Maschenanzahl wird stillgelegt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Alesya 17.04.2019 - 21:02:

Hi! Love the pattern! Can I work stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch without changing the numbers in selected size? Thanks!

DROPS Design 19.04.2019 kl. 20:31:

Dear Alysa, for that you must make a sample, as it's stated in the knitting tension section, but stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch. Should the tension match the one in the pattern, you may work stockinette stitch, remembering to mantain the knitting tension. Should it not match, you will have to change the numbers in the selected size. Happy knitting!

Martha 12.04.2019 - 17:27:

Leses rapporten fra venstre til høyre? Takk!

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 08:13:

Hei Marthe, Diagrammene er lest fra høyre til venstre og fra bunnen oppover. God fornøyelse!

Valerie 27.02.2019 - 14:28:

Très joli tricot mais comment peut-on trouver les explications?

Martina 27.02.2019 - 14:07:

Das sieht wunderschön aus. Bitte die Anleitung hochladen!
