Also on the photo of the jacket, there apparently isnt a 5dc decrease on the right side, as per the left.

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 08:22:

Dear Sharon, the sts dec towards mid front are for neck, you will then crochet collar over these sts (nekcline on front piece is starting lower than shoulders). Your previous comment has been forwarded to our design team. Thank you. Happy crocheting!

Sharon 07.03.2019 - 13:27:

Why on earth didnt you include a diagram and measurements for the front pieces!?

Sharon 07.03.2019 - 13:26:

My first front pieces like those of Janna who also commented here, are about 8cm wider than half the back width . Altogether the parts crossed over at the front amounts to 16 cm. The jacket in the photo has no such double breasting and appears to have an opening overlap (button band) of perhaps 4cm. Im not sure how I will proceed except to begin the collar a few cm from the edge and make a double breasted jacket. Fortunately for me, i have lots of extra yarn.

Beth Noll 31.08.2018 - 19:00:

When doing the right side, it says \"Additionally make 5-6-6-6-6-7 buttonholes as follows: ch 2 over 3rd and 4th sc from mid front, on next row crochet 1 sc in each ch.\" I can\'t figure out what mid front means. Do you mean for the button holes to go in the 3rd and 4th sc from the outside edge?

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 09:45:

Dear Mrs Noll, the buttonholes will be crocheted at the beg of a row from RS, ie skip the 3rd and 4th sc from the edge -towards mid front/jacket opening). Happy crocheting!

Stefanie² 24.08.2018 - 18:30:

Hello, what size should I go for if I'm 96 cm bust? Thank you!

DROPS Design 25.08.2018 kl. 08:02:

Hi Stefanie, Measurements for the different sizes are shown in a diagram at the bottom of the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Loes 19.04.2018 - 12:08:

Mooi en makkelijk patroon! Heel veel complimenten gekregen, soms zomaar van een vreemde😀. De jas is erg warm....jas nr 2 bijna klaar, wel met een andere steek.

Jana T 20.02.2018 - 22:37:

Hi! I've just finished the back piece and started working on the left front piece. I'm confused about the width of the left/right front piece. The way it is shown on the drawing it seems to me that the front pieces should be half the width of the back piece, or 24,5cm for size small. However, mine is much wider, around 33cm. Is this what the width of each front piece should really be, or am I doing something wrong? Thank you very much in advance!

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 07:00:

Dear Jana, don´t worry - front pieces should not be half of width of the back piece, as you have to count with button bands. Front pieces have due to it lay over each other, so it must be slightly wider than half of back. Happy crocheting!

Hanne 30.09.2017 - 08:34:

Hei! For en fin passform og lengde på denne jakken. Denne jakken vil jeg veldig gjerne STRIKKE! Hvordan skal jeg tenke om jeg vil "gjøre om" denne til en strikkeoppskrift? Ikke vant med å hekle, men kan lese oppskrift. Tusen takk for svar!

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 11:50:

Hvis du går ind på DROPS forside, så kan du søge ved at skrive "jakker" i søgeruden og klikke på kategori "dame", du kan også vælge teknikk som feks "sjalskrave" hvis du vil det. Vi håber du finder en jakke du synes om :)

Alexandra 11.02.2017 - 20:14:
