Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
The measurements in the sketch may seem a bit small, but the garment will be quite elastic so work the size you usually use.

Crochet tension: Remember hook size is only a guide! Approx. 3.5 chain-spaces in width and 9 rows in height with hook size 3.5 mm = 10 x 10 cm.

Measuring tip: Since the garment is quite elastic, you need to measure the width when the piece is lying flat and the height when the piece is held up, or the jacket will be too long when worn.
--------------------------------------------------------

Back piece: Work 97-105-113-129-145 chain stitches (incl. 8 chain stitches to turn) with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Viscose.
The first row is worked as follows: 1 double crochet in the 9th chain stitch from hook, * 7 chain stitches, skip 7 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* = 12-13-14-16-18 chain-spaces, turn piece.
Continue working as follows: 8 chain stitches (incl. 1 chain stitch to turn), 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch on first chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, * 7 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch on next chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of row, turn piece. Continue in this way upwards. Remember the crochet tension! When piece measures 20 cm increase 1 space in each side by working 1 extra space in the next outermost space in each side = 14-15-16-18-20 chain-spaces on row.
Armhole: When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41 cm - remember Measuring tip - decrease for armholes as follows:
Sizes XS + S/M + M/L: Work as before until there is 1 chain-space left, turn piece, continue with chain-spaces and repeat the decrease in the other side - or see diagram 1A.
Sizes XL + XXL: Work as before until there is 1 chain-space left, turn piece, Work slip stitches to middle of first chain-space, continue with chain-spaces and repeat the decrease in the other side - or see diagram 1B.
You have now decreased 1-1-1-2-2 chain-spaces in each side = 12-13-14-14-16 chain-spaces on row. Continue to work as before. When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62 cm, cast off for neck by working 2 rows over only 4-5-5-5-5 chain-spaces on each shoulder (you are not working the middle 4-3-4-4-6 spaces). Piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64 cm, cut strand.

Right front piece: Work 49-57-57-65-73 chain stitches (incl. 8 chain stitches to turn) with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Viscose. Continue working as for back piece = 6-7-7-8-9 chain-spaces. When piece measures 20 cm increase 1 chain-space in the side as for back piece = 7-8-8-9-10 chain-spaces. When piece measures 37-38-39-40-41 cm - remember Measuring tip - decrease for armhole in the one side as for back piece = 6-7-7-7-8 chain-spaces left. When piece measures 38-40-42-44-46 cm decrease for neck as follows in all sizes: Follow directions for armhole decreases for Sizes XL + XXL 1 time. Neck decreases are now finished in sizes XS, S/M, M/L and XL. Size XXL: Continue to follow directions for armhole decreases for Sizes XS + S/M + M/L 1 time. You have now decreased 2-2-2-2-3 spaces and there are 4-5-5-5-5 spaces left on shoulder. Continue working until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm, cut strand.

Left front piece: Work as for right, but in reverse.

Sleeve: The cuffs are crocheted to finish.
Work 65-65-81-81-89 chain stitches (incl. 8 chain stitches to turn) with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Viscose. Continue working as for body = 8-8-10-10-11 chain-spaces. After 2 rows increase by working an extra chain-space in the next outermost space on the one side, work 3 rows and increase in the same way in the other side. Repeat the increase in each side 1 more time with 3 rows between each increase = 12-12-14-14-15 chain-spaces on row. Continue working until piece measures 24-24-24-22-19 cm. Now decrease for sleeve cap by working 6-6-6-8-12 rows with 1 less chain-space at the end of each row, cut the strand. Piece measures approx. 31-31-31-31-32 cm.

Ik begrijp niet goed waarom die 4 losse moeten bij toer 4 vd manchetten. Als ik die haak krijg ik 1x een boogje in de toer. Die 4l wordt niet herhaald. Toer 4: hv naar de 3e v in de v-groep, 4 l, * 1 v in de volgende v, 1 l *, herhaal van * - * in totaal 5 keer, 1 v in de volgende v, ** 1 v in de 3e v van de v-groep, (1 l, 1 v in de volgende v), herhaal ( ) in totaal 6 keer **, herhaal van ** - ** in totaal 4-4-5-5-5 keer, eindig met 1 hv in de 3e l van het begin van de tr.

Chi 03.06.2018 - 21:23:

Can you please explain the instruction for top "when the piece measures 10 cm increase 1 space at each side by making 1 extra space in the next to last space at each side?" Thank you in advance.

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:35:

Dear Chi, work first ch-space at the beg of row as before, then work 2 ch-spaces in the 2nd ch-space on row (= crochet a total of 2 times in the same ch-space: ch 7, 1 sc in 4th ch in the next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in the same ch), then continue as before until 2 ch-spaces remain before end of row, work 2 ch-spaces in the next ch-space and finish row as before. Happy crocheting!

Donna 14.05.2018 - 17:49:

Thank you very much for your last answer. I would really love to make this beautiful cardigan so I am wondering if you could clarify the following: work 2 (= work * ch 7, 1 sc in 4th ch in the next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in the same ch * a total of 2 times) do you this twice in the same check 2 space? Will it even out in following rows? When I do this it looks extremely crowded in that one chain to space and seems confusing.

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 08:29:

Dear Donna, you need to increase one large ch-space on each side, you will crochet 2 large ch-spaces in the 2nd ch-space from beg of row and in the next to last ch-space at the end of row = you will have 2 more large ch-spaces on row. Happy crocheting!

Donna 12.05.2018 - 21:22:

Is there a link to a visual tutorial regarding back increase after 20cm? I have searched your youtube channel. I desperately need a visual to understand this increase. Many thanks.

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 10:17:

Dear Donna, there is no video yet to this increase: you will increase 1 ch-space on each side of piece inside 1 ch-space, ie at the beg of row work first ch-space as before, then in 2nd ch-space work 2 (= work * ch 7, 1 sc in 4th ch in the next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in the same ch * a total of 2 times) and continue until 2 ch-spaces remain at the end of row, work 2 times from *-* (= as at the beg of row) and finish working in last ch-space on row as before. Happy crocheting!

Virginia Kathleen Johnson 21.01.2017 - 22:30:

I am aware that this question has been asked and answered but it seems that the answer given is always just to repeat the pattern directions. After reaching the 20cm the inc seems to make a loop shape instead of the diamond. Is that what it is supposed to do? out. If not then please help us understand what we are meant to do. Photos would definitely help

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 10:18:

Dear Mrs Johnson, when piece measures 20 cm, crochet 2 ch-space instead of only 1 in the 2nd + in the next to last ch-space on row = there are now 2 more ch-space on row. Happy crocheting!

Terri 06.09.2015 - 03:56:

I am just beginning this sweater. I don't understand the gauge instructions. 3.5 ch-space in width. What does that mean?

DROPS Design 07.09.2015 kl. 11:07:

Dear Terri, crochet in ch-spaces over some sts for a swatch and measure in width to get 3,5 ch spaces (= 3 ch-spaces + 1 half ch-space) = 10 cm. Happy crocheting!

Christine 03.05.2015 - 03:28:

Would u please clarify this part  Bind off for sleeve cap by crocheting 6-6-6-8-12 rows with 1 ch-space fewer at the end of each row, cut yarn. The piece measures approx. 31-31-31-31-32 cm. 

DROPS Design 04.05.2015 kl. 09:13:

Dear Christine, you dec 1 ch-space at the end of each of the next 6-8-12 rows. After these rows have been worked, sleeve will measures 31-32 cm in total. Happy crocheting!

Christine 31.03.2015 - 18:24:

Would u please explain how to increase after the back piece measures 20 cm?

DROPS Design 01.04.2015 kl. 09:17:

Dear Christine, when piece measures 20 cm, you will crochet 2 ch-spaces in the 2nd ch-space and 2 ch-spaces in the next to last ch-space on row, repeating twice in the same ch-space: *ch 7, 1 sc in 4th ch in the next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in the same ch* = you will have 2 ch-spaces more at the end of this inc row. Happy crocheting!

Virginia 04.03.2015 - 18:10:

Buenas tardes. Estoy haciendo el patrón y he empezado por la espalda tal y como indica. Cuando lleve 20cm hay que aumentar una blonda en cada lado en la penúltima blonda. Hay algun video que explique como hacerlo??? Gracias!

DROPS Design 09.03.2015 kl. 10:38:

Hola Virginia, no hay un video de como aumentar una blonda trabajando 2 blondas en una. Se trabaja un 2º arco o blonda pinchando en el mismo sitio.

Lizette 02.04.2014 - 17:07:

PS ik vroeg me ook af of je bij het keren na de eerste toer ook niet dat 2losse-boogje moet maken... Want aan het eind van he 2e toer doe je dat wel en dan heb je dus verschil in de ene (rechter) en andere kant (linker) van je werk.
