Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Crochet tip-1:
Replace first sc on row with 1 ch.
Replace first dc on row with 3 ch.
Replace first tr on row with 4 ch.

Crochet tip-2: When working sc over tr, crochet in tr, but when working sc over shell with picots crochet between sts. Make sure the picot sits at the front of piece.

Increasing tip: Inc 2 sts between each shell by working 2 sc in the first tr/sc and the last tr/sc in each repeat of M.2.
Note! No inc towards mid front (i.e. do not inc at the beg of the first repeat of M.2 and at the end of the last repeat of M.2 on row).

Shell pattern: See diagram M.1 to M.3.

Textured pattern: Worked on all sts not included in M.2. The textured pattern follows the pattern in M.2, i.e. when working sc in M.2 work sc in textured pattern and when working shells in M.2 work tr in textured pattern.

Worked from top down, back and forth on needle towards mid front.
Crochet 47-53 ch (includes 1 ch to turn with) on crochet hook size 8 mm [L/11] with Eskimo.
Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, * skip 1 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* until 4-5 ch remain, skip 1 ch and work 1 sc in each of the last 3-4 ch = 37-42 sc on row.
Continue as follows from RS:
See Crochet tip-1 and Textured pattern!
1 st in the first st, M.1 on the next 35-40 sts (7-8 repeats), 1 st in the last st on row. See Crochet tip-2! After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 (= 65-74 sts) continue in M.2.
At the same time inc 2 sts between each of the 7-8 repeats on row of M.2, inc on dc-rows (i.e 1st, 3rd, 5th etc row in pattern) – see Increasing tip – a total of 5 times = 125-144 sts on row.
Incorporate the inc sts in Textured pattern as you go along, i.e. no of sts between each repeat of M.2 increases.

When all inc are complete continue as follows:
1 st in first st on row, * M.2 on the next 9 sts, 1 st in each of the next 10 sts *, repeat from *-* until 10 sts remain on row, M.2 on the next 9 sts and 1 st in the last st on row.
After 9-10 vertical repeats of M.2 continue as follows: M.3A on the first st, * M.3B on the next 9 sts, M.3C on the next 10 sts *, repeat from *-* until 10 sts remain, M.3B on the next 9 sts and M.3A on the last st on row. See Crochet tip-2!
After 1 vertical repeat of M.3 (2 rows) cut the thread.

Front bands and neckline:
Beg at the bottom of left front piece (1st row = WS). Crochet approx 100 to 120 sc with crochet hook size 8 mm [L/11] and Eskimo up along left front piece, round neck and down along right front piece (make sure border isn’t too tight). Turn piece. Work 1 dc in each sc, at the same time make 2 buttonholes on right front piece, one approx 8 cm [3’’] from neckline and one approx 1 cm [½’’] from neckline by replacing 1 dc with 1 ch. On next row work 1 sc in each dc and in each ch for buttonhole. Sew on buttons.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= dc
= tr
= sc – see Crochet tip-2!
= dc with picot, i.e. work dc as usual, then work 3 ch and 1 sl st in the first of these 3 ch.
= this row is explained in pattern, beg on next row.

Det er umuligt at hækle efter jeres diagrammer. Kan i da ikke skrive det række for række som andre gør 😥😯 øv

Francine 04.09.2018 - 13:25:

I tried to contact Nordic Mart where I purchased your Eskimo Yarn. There is no way to contact them for help!

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 12:29:

Dear Francine, maybe you can just let us know the exact part you don't understand or try to contact them on Facebook.

Tammy 29.08.2018 - 08:46:

I wish I could follow your patterns. I haven’t found one pattern I can understand enough to even attempt one of your beautiful projects. Just wish you’d put full written instructions. Too hard to follow your half diagram and half written instructions.

Francine 29.08.2018 - 06:14:

I don't understand some of your instructions. I had to rip out the first row as your diagram should show more than one pattern so that you can see if you have to skip a stitch or start the new pattern immediately after the shell pattern. Then I am not sure if I am crocheting between the stitches or in them on the second row. It would be nice if you made a complete diagram of a few rows to get started or give a better explanation. I am trying to get this done for my son's wedding

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 13:15:

Dear Francine, I'm sorry, I'm not sure to understand your question, could you please reword it and let us know theh part you don't understand. Thank you!

Christine Isnard 03.01.2017 - 13:10:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas en quoi consiste le point structuré. Faut il faire des mailles serrées pour les augmentations? comme indiqué mais dans ce cas cela reste trop bas par rapport à la hauteur des coquilles...J'ai déjà lu toutes vos réponses en anglais et en français mais le mieux serait que vous nous mettiez une vidéo montrant M1 et M2. Vos vidéos sont très bien faites . Merci d'avance d'en faire une. Sinon je vais devoir renoncer et me rabattre sur un autre modèle...;

DROPS Design 03.01.2017 kl. 14:46:

Bonjour Mme Isnard, dans les mailles entre M.2 on crochète comme les mailles de M2 soit en ms ou en DB comme dans M.2. Les augmentations se font sur les rangs en ms, cf "AUGMENTATIONS" au début des explications. Bon crochet!

DEVOTI 25.10.2016 - 18:44:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas ce point structuré, il me semble bien faire les coquille mais cela ne donne pas comme la photo, pas de relief???Merci

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Mme Devoti, pour bien donner du relief, pensez à crocheter les ms du rang après les bride à picots entre les mailles en veillant bien à ce que les picots soient sur le devant de l'ouvrage. Bon crochet!

Ilona Lehmann 26.11.2015 - 19:22:

Die Anleitung passt nicht zu dem Bild. M.E. Zeigt das Foto, dass überwiegend Stäbchen, nein Doppelstäbchen gehäkelt werden. Das Gehäkelte ist nur "blumig", auch fehlen die vereinzelten Fächer laut Foto. Was stimmt hier nicht? Ich bin enttäuscht, hatte einen hübschen Poncho erwartet. Eine Antwort wäre toll, danke.

DROPS Design 30.11.2015 kl. 13:21:

Es fehlt nicht, das Bild stimmt mit der Anleitung überein. Es ist richtig, dass Sie zwischen den Fächern Doppelstäbchen häkeln. Die Fächer, die Sie sehen, sind Muster M.1 und M.2. Sie nehmen zwischen den Fächern wie beschrieben nach und nach M zu, diese häkeln Sie als Doppel-Stb, wenn Sie beim Fächermuster Doppel-Stb häkeln, und als feste M, wenn beim Fächermuster feste M gehäkelt werden. Sie häkeln das Cape ja von oben nach unten, daher werden es erst nach und nach mehr Doppel-Stb zwischen den einzelnen Fächermustersätzen.

Dona 09.09.2014 - 12:58:

How many shells are on each row?

DROPS Design 09.09.2014 kl. 17:23:

Dear Dona, you are working M.1 over 35-40 sts ie you repeat 7 times M.1 in first size and 8 times M.1 in 2nd size. Happy crocheting!

Nora 20.02.2014 - 22:55:

What is an example of a stitch that is not included in M2? Thank you!

DROPS Design 21.02.2014 kl. 08:39:

Dear Nora, when you work M.2 you inc between each repetition of the diagram, these inc are the sts that are not included in M.2. Happy crocheting!

Nora 20.02.2014 - 05:51:

I am having difficulty understanding the instructions for "textured pattern". I don't understand what it means by "worked on all stitches not included in M.2".

DROPS Design 20.02.2014 kl. 08:41:

Dear Nora, all sts not included in M.2 will be crocheted either with sc when sc are crocheted in M.2 and with tr when shells are worked in M.2. Happy crocheting!
