Do you have a chart with the abbreviations and their meanings available? I'm not sure about some of the abbreviations used here.

DROPS Design 03.08.2019 kl. 12:55:

Dear Cheryl, this link can help you with the abbreviations: it's a dictionary of the most frequent terms used in DROPS patterns. Happy crocheting!

Cheryl Taylor 15.07.2019 - 03:40:

I would like to make this pattern without the sleeves. I\'m a beginner so can you explain to me exactly how to do this? I am making in XL and want it to be a bit longer. How do I do this?

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 11:27:

Dear Mrs Taylor, For a sleeveless jacket, you might work the jacket with armholes as explained, and maybe then just finish with a small edge around armholes instead of working sleeves. We are unfortunately not able to adapt every pattern to every single request, but you are welcome to contact the store where you bought the yarn (even per mail or telephone) for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Elana 04.07.2019 - 22:55:

I am making this in XL. I am confused on round 15 where I am supposed to crochet over the 34 chain. It says to do the instructions 11 times. But that will not take me to the end of the 34 chain. Am I supposed to skip some chains? I'm stuck.

DROPS Design 05.07.2019 kl. 08:36:

Dear Elena, on row 15 crochet the 11 times over the chain (do not crochet in the chain stitches but around the 34-chain-spaces, if you get the correct number of stitches on row before, then it should work. Happy crocheting!

Judie Harmer 17.06.2019 - 16:51:

I would like to make this for my 5year granddaughter but can’t locate the child size pattern.

DROPS Design 18.06.2019 kl. 08:24:

Dear Mrs Harmer, you will find all our crochet circle jackets for children here to help you adjusting this pattern to a child size. Happy crocheting!

Clare 08.06.2019 - 17:47:

The picture above of the moonlight mist is lovely but I have seen another picture of one in blue which looks different not so flared and tighter Why are they different Thank u

DROPS Design 08.06.2019 kl. 19:53:

Dear Clare, I am affraid we are not able to specify the difference as we do not know the second picture which you have seen. There might be another crocheting gauge or type of sitches used, which could make the final difference. Feel free to try and see what will look better for you. Happy crocheting!

Clare 07.06.2019 - 12:03:

On s/m on case off round 13 Do I change 4 then 2 dtr in same stitch then ch2 then do 8 x 3dtr ch 2 or is it 7 x over the arm hole or do I go in the chains Or do Thank u

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 13:00:

Dear Clare, start round 13 with 4 chains (= 1st dtr), then crochet 2 dtr, 2 chains, *3 dtr, 2 ch* a total of 7 times (= 8 times in total around the 26 chains, and work *3 dtr in each dtr, 2 ch* between armholes - work 2nd armhole with *3 dtr, 2 ch* x 8. Happy crocheting!

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 07:23:

Hi Clare, There is a diagram at the bottom of the pattern with the measurements for each size. Happy crocheting!

Elisabeth 07.05.2019 - 13:50:

Bonjour, J'aimerais savoir ce que signifie "sauter 1,5 - 2 cm" dans la bordure. Est-ce laisser 1.5 cm de fil avant de faire la DB ? ou est-ce laisser 1.5 cm de travail avant de faire la DB ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 07.05.2019 kl. 16:15:

Bonjour Élisabeth, après chaque DB, on crochète 2 mailles en l'air et on va sauter 1,5 à 2 cm environ (soit approximativement la largeur équivalente aux 2 mailles en l'air) puis crocheter 1 double-bride dans la double-bride suivante (on doit donc avoir de 1,5 à 2 cm entre chaque double-bride = largeur de l'arceau de 2 ml). Bon crochet!

Fournier Élodie 01.05.2019 - 22:28:

Bonjour, pouvons nous adapter ce modèle en taille enfant si oui comment puis je faire merci infiniment pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 02.05.2019 kl. 09:51:

Bonjour Mme Fournier, nous ne sommes pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chaque modèle à chaque demande, toutefois, ces modèles pourront vous inspirer. Pour toute assistance complémentaire, merci de bien vouloir contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon crochet!

Josée Parent 24.03.2019 - 00:25:

Je comprends pas comment faire R 15 : au dessus des 34 ml faire : *1DB, 3ml* répéter de *à* 11 fois ; au dessus des 34 ml veut dire dans ces ml ou bien vraiment dans celles en haut d'elles? J'espère que vous comprenez ma question? Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Mme Parent, vous allez crocheter autour de l'arceau de 34 ml de chacune des emmanchures (pas en piquant dans les mailles en l'air, mais bien autour des mailles en l'air). Quand vous ferez les manches par la suite, vous crochèterez entre ces mailles. Bon crochet!
