EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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


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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge in height = 2 rounds; Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

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

INCREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 1 stitch before the stitch with the marker, make 1 yarn over, work the stitch with the marker, 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. The increased stitches are worked into the pattern as you go.

RAGLAN:
Decrease to raglan on each side of the 4 markers in each transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches decreased on each decrease-row). All decreases are worked from the right side!
Start 2 stitches before the marker, knit 2 together, marker, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 50 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 8.3.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. When decreasing, knit together approx. each 7th and 8th stitch.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on right band (when the garment is worn). 1 buttonhole = Start from the right side and knit the 2nd and 3rd stitch from the edge together, then make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over to leave a hole. Work buttonholes when the piece measures: (the last buttonhole is worked on the last row before the neck as described in the text).
<0 MONTH: 2, 5, 8, 11, 15 and 18 cm
0/1 MONTH: 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 and 22 cm

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The body is worked back and forth with circular needle, from mid front and bottom up as far as the armholes. Then the sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles. Body and sleeves are joined together and the yoke is continued back and forth to finished length.

BODY:
Cast on (81) 99-111-117-129 (135-147) stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work the next row as follows, from the right side: 4 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A until there are 6 stitches left on the row (= (12) 15-17-18-20 (21-23) repeats of 6 stitches), A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch. See diagram for right size in A.1A and A.1 B. Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and BUTTONHOLES on right band – see description above.
On the row marked with arrow-1 in A.1A (wrong side) decrease (3) 1-1-3-3 (1-1) stitches evenly spaced - do not decrease over band stitches = (78) 98-110-114-126 (134-146) stitches on needle. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 4 band stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A until there are 6 stitches left on row (= (17) 22-25-26-29 (31-34) repeats of 4 stitches), A.1B (= 2 stitches) and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue this pattern.
On the row marked with arrow-2 in A.1A increase (3) 1-1-3-3 (1-1) stitches evenly spaced = (81) 99-111-117-129 (135-147) stitches on the needle and the pattern is continued as before. When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. (12)15-18-18-18 (24-24) cm. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Knit (21) 25-28-28-32 (33-36) stitches, AT THE SAME TIME increase (0) 0-1-1-1 (0-1) stitch = (21) 25-29-29-33 (33-37) stitches (= front piece), cast off (4) 4-4-6-6 (6-6) stitches for armhole, knit (31) 41-47-49-53 (57-63) stitches, AT THE SAME TIME increase (2) 0-2-0-0 (0-2) stitches evenly spaced = (33) 41-49-49-53 (57-65) stitches (= back piece), cast off (4) 4-4-6-6 (6-6) stitches for armhole and knit the remaining (21) 25-28-28-32 (33-36) stitches, AT THE SAME TIME increase (0) 0-1-1-1 (0-1) stitch = (21) 25-29-29-33 (33-37) stitches (= front piece). Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on (30) 30-30-36-36 (36-42) stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Work 3 RIDGES in the round – see description above. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work A.2 in the round (= (5) 5-5-6-6 (6-7) repeats of 6 stitches). When A.2 has been completed work A.3A in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round adjust the number of stitches to (28) 32-32-36-36 (36-40) stitches (there is now room for (7) 8-8-9-9 (9-10) repeats of 4 stitches) – see INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced). Insert 1 marker in the first stitch of the round (= mid under sleeve) and allow the marker to follow your work upwards.
When the piece measures 6 cm increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – see INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every (2½) 3-2½-3-2½ (2½-2 ½) cm a total of (3) 3-5-5-7 (9-10) times = (34) 38-42-46-50 (54-60) stitches. Continue working until the piece measures approx. (12) 15-18-19-22 (25-29) cm but stop after round 3 or 7 in A.3A.
The next round is worked as follows: Cast off (2) 2-2-3-3 (3-3) stitches for the armhole, knit (30) 34-38-40-44 (48-54) stitches, then cast off the remaining (2) 2-2-3-3-(3-3) stitches for armhole. Cut the strand and work the other sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body, where you cast off stitches for the armholes (without working the stitches) = (135) 159-183-187-207 (219-247) stitches on needle.

The next row is worked as follows from the right side (when A.3 is worked (on both front-/back pieces and sleeves) it is important to continue the diagram from where you finished on the sleeves):
Work 4 band stitches in garter stitch, A.3A over the next (16) 20-24-24-28 (28-32) stitches (= (4) 5-6-6-7 (7-8) repeats of 4 stitches), A.3 B (= 1 stitch), insert 1 marker (= front piece), continue A.3A over the next (30) 34-38-40-44 (48-54) stitches, insert 1 marker (= sleeve), work A.3A over the next (32) 40-48-48-52 (56-64) stitches (= (8) 10-12-12-13 (14-16) repeats of 4 stitches), A.3B (= 1 stitch), insert 1 marker (= back piece), continue A.3A over the next (30) 34-38-40-44 (48-54) stitches, insert 1 marker (= sleeve), work A.3A over the next (16) 20-24-24-28 (28-32) stitches, A.3 B and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch (= front piece). Continue this pattern back and forth.
AT THE SAME TIME on the next row from the right side decrease to RAGLAN – see description above (= 8 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2nd row (i.e. each row from the right side) a total of (8) 10-11-12-14 (15-17) times. After the last decrease to raglan there are (71) 79-95-91-95 (99-111) stitches left on the needle. On the next row from the right side decrease (13) 17-29-19-19 (19-27) stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP, in addition work the last buttonhole on this row = (58) 62-66-72-76 (80-84) stitches on needle.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 more row from the wrong side. Cast off with knit from the right side.
The jacket measures approx. (22) 26-30-31-32 (39-41) cm from the shoulder down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew openings under the sleeves. Sew buttons onto left band.

Der mangler i mine øjne en rapport-markering i højden på A3.A. jeg har strikket med 3 pinde mellem lusene - eller er det meningen, der skal være 3 og 5 pinde imellem ?

Lena Henriksen 17.08.2019 - 10:22:

Har strikket trøjen i størrelse < 0. I hvertfald i den størrelse er der en fejl i ryg/forstykke: Skift til rundpind 4 og strik næste pind således fra retsiden: 4 kantmasker retstrik, strik A.1A til der er 6 masker tilbage på pinden (= (12) 15-17-18-20 (21-23) rapporter à 6 masker), strik A.1B (= 1 maske) og afslut med 4 kantmasker retstrik. 6 masker tilbage på pinden skal være 5 masker. Ellers passer det heller ikke med A.1B der er 1 maske + 4 masker til kant.

Isabelle Con 15.08.2019 - 11:51:

Liebes Team, kann es sein, dass sich vielleicht ein Fehler in der Anleitung versteckt? Im Abschnitt dran Rumpfteils steht: „A.1A bis noch 6 Maschen auf der Nadel sind (= (12) 15-17-18-20 (21-23) Rapporte à 6 Maschen), A.1B (= 1 Maschen) und enden mit 4 Blenden-Maschen kraus rechts. “ Doch wenn ich noch 6M über habe, dann 1x A.1B stricke (=1M), dann habe ich 5M über. Was mache ich also mit den letzten M vor der Blende, die aus 4M Kraus-rechts besteht? Viele Grüße, Isabelle

DROPS Design 15.08.2019 kl. 15:04:

Liebe Frau Con, so wird es gestrickt: 4 Blende-Maschen kraus rechts, dann (12)15-17-18-20 (21-23) x A.1A stricken (= über die nächsten (72)90-102-108-120 (126-138) Maschen, 1 M in A.1B und 4 Blende-Maschen, jetzt haben Sie: 4+ (72)90-102-108-120 (126-138) +1 + 4 = (81) 99-111-117-129 (135-147) Maschen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Wieviel Gramm der Drops Merino Extra Fina Wolle benötige ich etwa?

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 11:52:

Dear Mary, die Garnmenge für jede Größe finden Sie oben in der Anleitung - hier lesen Sie mehr. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Shari 16.07.2019 - 18:06:

It seems that pages 8 and 11 are not printing. All the other pages printed out, but I couldn’t get those two to print.

DROPS Design 17.07.2019 kl. 11:18:

Dear Mrs Shari, just check that your printers settings didn't saved previous settings, so that all pages will be printed. Happy knitting!
