From top to bottom kraus right long knitted DROPS jacket in 2
Threads "Melody". Size S - XXXL.
DROPS 168-6
DROPS Design: Model No. ml-008

------
Size: S - M - L - XL - XXL - XXXL (see measurements in the
Dimensional sketch!)
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the garter stems and the loose
Knitwear will be the jacket in proportion to the dimensions in the
Dimensional sketch when wearing approx. 10-12 cm longer. The sleeves
be about 5-7 inches longer.

That's what you need:

  • DROPS MELODY from Garnstudio
  • 150-200-200-200-250-250 g color no. 01, natural
  • 100-100-150-150-150-150 g Color No. 09, light seagreen
  • 100-100-100-150-150-150 g color no. 07, dark denim blue
  • 100-100-100-100-100-100 g color no. 15, beige

That's how it works:

JACKET:
The jacket is knitted in several parts in back and forth R on the round needle and then sewn. To adjust the length of the jacket and sleeves, all parts are stitched from top to bottom.

BACK PIECE:
It starts on the left shoulder (when wearing the jacket). Cast on 18-19-21-22-24-25 sts on round needle no. 15 with 2 threads of natural LOCKER. 1 reverse and 1 backward st. Put the work aside. Now work the right shoulder as follows: Cast 18-19-21-22-24-25 sts on circular needle no. 15 with 2 threads of natural looseness. 1 reverse and 1 backward st. Knit 1 st in garter st and 6-7-6-7-7-9 sts at the neckline at the ends of this row, then work the 18-19-21-22-24-25 sts left shoulder sts = 42 -45-48-51-55-59 M on the needle. Then KRAUS RIGHT and STREIFEN RUMPFTEIL str - see above. BE AWARE OF MESH TASTING! For a total length of 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm (measured flat), attach 1 marker on each side (marks the armholes). When the stripes have finished, the work has a total length of approx. 83-86-89-92-95-97 cm from the shoulder PLEASE NOTE: The length can be adjusted to the desired size. The work will stretch in proportion to the dimensions in the dimension sketch - see explanation under "Size". Cast off LOCKER in a back row.
