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.6. Choose diagrams and find your size in diagrams.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) minus the bands (e.g. 8 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 9) = 8.2. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
All increases are worked from the right side!
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches) make 1 yarn over.
On the next row purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

RAGLAN:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch on each side of each sleeve, on the inside of the marker thread and knit 1.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row purl the yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on the right band (when the garment is worn). Work from the right side when there are 3 stitches left on the row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 1. On the next row (wrong side), knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
The first buttonhole is worked when the rib on the neck measures approx. 2 cm. Then work the other 6 buttonholes with approx. 7-7-7½-7½-8-8 cm between each one.

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

JACKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle. NOTE: There are a lot of diagrams in this pattern; to avoid using the wrong diagram for your size it is a good idea to either mark your diagrams or remove the ones you don’t need from the pattern. The size specific to a diagram is found after its name. The diagrams with no specified sizes are for all-sizes.

NECK:
Cast on 82-86-90-94-94-98 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and 1 strand Nord + 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 4 band stitches in GARTER STITCH – read description above, rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) until there are 6 stitches left on the row, knit 2 and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this for 3 cm. REMEMBER BUTTONHOLES on the right band – read description above. Knit 1 row where you increase 9-9-5-5-5-5 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 91-95-95-99-99-103 stitches. Purl 1 row back from the wrong side (band stitches worked in garter stitch to finished length). Insert a marker. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 5 mm and work pattern as follows:
Work 4 band stitches in garter stitch, A.1a over the next 15 stitches, A.1b over the next 2 stitches, insert a marker thread here (= in the transition between left front piece and left sleeve), knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit 6-8-8-10-10-12 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between left sleeve and back piece), A.1c over the next 3 stitches, A.1d over the next 28 stitches (= 2 repeats in width), A.1b over the next 2 stitches, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between back piece and right sleeve), knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 6-8-8-10-10-12, 1 yarn over, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between right sleeve and right front piece), A.1c over the next 3 stitches, A.1e over the next 14 stitches and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch.
You now have 1 marker thread in each transition between body and sleeves (= 4 marker threads – allow them to follow your work onwards). In addition to the increases in the diagrams, you have increased 1 stitch on each side of the sleeves to RAGLAN – read description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue this pattern back and forth and increase to raglan on the sleeves every 2nd row 18-19-22-21-20-20 more times, then every 4th row 2-2-2-3-5-6 times (= a total of 21-22-25-25-26-27 times on each side of the sleeves). AT THE SAME TIME in sizes S and M work as far as the star for your size in the diagrams (including the row with the star). Then continue working as described below. In sizes L, XL, XXL and XXXL work the whole of diagrams A.1a to A.1e in height before continuing as described below.

Size S:
Work A.2a over A.1a, A.2b over A.1b, A.2c over A.1c etc., working stocking stitch, increases to raglan and band stitches in garter stitch as before. When you have worked as far as the row with the star (including the row with the star), the piece measures approx. 21 cm. Continue from ALL SIZES below.

When you have worked as far as the row with the star (including the row with the star), the piece measures approx. 22 cm. Continue from ALL SIZES below.

Sizes L, XL, XXL and XXXL:
Work 4 band stitches in garter stitch, A.2a over the next 15 stitches, A.2b over the next 30 stitches (marker thread sits here), work stocking stitch as far as the next marker thread and increase to raglan on the sleeves as before (marker thread sits here), A.2c over the next 31 stitches, A.2d over the next 28 stitches (= 2 repeats), A.2b over the next 30 stitches (marker thread sits here), work stocking stitch as far as the next marker thread and increase to raglan on the sleeves as before (marker thread sits here), A.2c over the next 31 stitches, A.2d over the next 14 stitches and finish with 4 band stitches in garter stitch. When you have worked as far as the row with the star for your size (including the row with the star), the piece measures approx. 25-25-28-30 cm from the marker. Continue from ALL SIZES below.

ALL SIZES:
There are 271-287-319-327-347-363 stitches on the needle. Now work the next row from wrong side as follows: NOTE: In sizes XXL and XXXL you work 1-3 sleeve-stitches onto the back/front pieces.
Work the first 45-47-52-53-58-62 stitches (= right front piece), place the next 50-54-60-62-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 4-8-8-12-14-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 81-85-95-97-107-115 stitches (= back piece), place the next 50-54-60-62-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 4-8-8-12-14-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 45-47-52-53-58-62 stitches (= left front piece). The body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
There are 179-195-215-227-251-267 stitches on the body. Insert a marker thread in each side in the middle of the 4-8-8-12-14-14 stitches cast on under each sleeve (= 2-4-4-6-7-7 new stitches on each side of the marker thread). Work pattern in the different sizes as follows: NOTE: The pattern should match the pattern from the yoke. Choose diagrams and begin on the row with the star for your size:

Sizes S, M, L and XL:
Work 4 band stitches in garter stitch, A.3a over the next 15 stitches, A.3b over the next 0-14-14-14 stitches (= 0-1-1-1 repeats), A.3c over the next 16 stitches, knit 12-2-7-10 (marker thread sits here), knit 12-2-7-10, A.3d over the next 17 stitches, A.3b over the next 28-56-56-56 stitches (= 2-4-4-4 repeats), A.3c over the next 16 stitches, knit 12-2-7-10 (marker thread sits here), knit 12-2-7-10, A.3d over the next 17 stitches, A.3b over the next 0-14-14-14 stitches, A.3e over the next 14 stitches and 4 band stitches in garter stitch.
When the diagrams have been completed in height (i.e. you have worked the last 2-24-18-16 rows in the diagrams), work A.3a to A.3e 1-0-0-0 more time in height and then work the first 12 rows in the diagrams. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 4 cm, increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP-2. Repeat this increase when the piece measures 12 cm = 187-203-223-235 stitches. When A.3a to A.3e have been completed, work A.4a over A.3a, A.4b over A.3b etc. The remaining stitches on the row are worked in stocking stitch and garter stitch as before. Continue from ALL SIZES below.

ALL SIZES:
Continue with stocking stitch and the band stitches in garter stitch until the body measures 27-27-26-27-26-26 cm. Work 1 row from wrong side (with 4 band stiches in garter stitch in each side as before) where you increase 27-31-35-35-39-43 stitches evenly spaced = 214-234-258-270-298-318 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) inside the 4 band stitches in garter stitch on each side – start and finish with 2 knitted stitches inside the bands.

Insert a marker thread in the middle of the 4-8-8-12-14-14 stitches under the sleeve (2-4-4-6-7-7 new stitches on each side of the thread). Work stocking stitch in the round. When the sleeve measures 4 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3½-2½-2-1½-1½-1½ cm a total of 9-13-15-17-17-16 times = 36-36-38-40-42-44 stitches. When the sleeve measure 37-37-35-36-34-33 cm, knit 1 round where you increase 4-4-6-4-6-4 stitches evenly spaced = 40-40-44-44-48-48 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work rib (= 2 knit / purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons onto the left band.

Er det en feil i første omgang på diagram A1d og A1e? Skulle det vært et kast helt på starten av diagrammet? Masketallet på neste omgang stemmer ikke.

DROPS Design 12.09.2019 kl. 14:13:

Hej Marianne, det kan se ud som om at du har ret, vi skal se på diagrammerne, hold øje med en rettelse :)

Marianna 04.09.2019 - 14:06:

Zit er in patroon A1e een foutje ? Je begint het patroon met 14 steken met mindering van 2 steken en 1 omslag. Dan houd je toch maar 13 steken over.

Lisa 02.09.2019 - 09:59:

Wordt dit hele vestmet dubbele draad gebreid ?

Birgitte Larsen 21.08.2019 - 13:00:

Kommer der en opskrift til denne?

DROPS Design 22.08.2019 kl. 11:55:

Hej. Nu finns den på danska! Lycka till!

MARIE-LINE 08.08.2019 - 22:33:

Ohlala on pourra le faire quand celui-là.... j'aime beaucoup beaucoup...
