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:

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.

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.
