PIECE-1 (= left side, with buttonhole band): Crochet 47-57-66-59-71-83 loose ch with crochet hook size 3.5 mm and brown (less sts in size L than size M because there are more squares in size L).

Continue in pattern When piece measures 8 cm put it aside (make sure to finish on the same row as Piece-1).

BACK PIECE: Now crochet the 2 pieces tog as follows: Place the extra 5 buttonhole band sts on left piece under the 5 first sts on the right piece, crochet pieces tog – continue the pattern, i.e. crochet through 2 layers on 5 sts in the middle = 68-84-100-88-108-128 sts. Insert a marker 3-7-11-2-6-11 sts in from each side (= the sides), AT THE SAME TIME on second row with tr inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 inc sts in total) – inc by working 2 tr in 1 dc.

BACK PIECE: Only crochet on the middle 68-72-76-92-98-104 sts, continue the pattern back and forth on these sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st each side on every row – SEE DECREASING TIP – until there are 56-56-56-84-84-84 sts left on row.

BORDER ROUND WAISTCOAT: Crochet round the whole garment with brown. Beg at the bottom by split on back piece, continue along bottom edge, up along front piece, round neck, down along the other front piece, and along bottom edge to the split mid back (i.e. do not crochet along the sides of split mid back). Work 2 rows dc. NOTE: in all outward facing corners work 3 dc and in all inward facing corners skip 1 st. Now work 1 row with picots as described for armholes – also crochet this row along the sides of split mid back.

Hva menes med de fem ekstra stolpemasker? Jeg greier ikke å forstå hvordan bakstykkene på 8 cm skal hekles sammen.

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 09:06:

Hei Ingvild. De 5 ekstra stolpemaskene er knappestolpen som hekles på venstre bakstykket. Når begge bakstykkene måler 8 cm skal bakstykkene hekles sammen til et bakstykke, da legges de 5 ekstra stolpemaskene på venstre del under de 5 første m på høyre del og de hekles sammen – fortsett mønsteret (det hekles altså gjennom 2 lag over 5 m på midten). God Fornøyelse!

Bonjour, En fait, ça n'est pas clair pour moi...Pour chaque devant, il y a 4 coins. Pour celui du haut (carré C, demi-carré C), on saute 1m. Et pour les suivants, on crochète 3 m ?

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 16:01:

Bonjour Martine, pour chaque devant, on saute 1 m au niveau des carrés C/C (encolure), puis on crochète 3 m dans le coin des carrés C/D de l'encolure/bordure devant et dans les 2 derniers coins en bas du devant. Bon crochet!

Martine 11.10.2017 - 19:37:

Re-bonsoir, En fait ma question précédente concernant le travail sur les coins est passée inopinément en commentaire....

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Martine, c'est bien exact, les coins vers l'extérieur sont en bas du gilet (on crochète 3 ms pour un joli arrondi) et les coins vers l'intérieur sont ceux des carrés C de l'encolure, on saute 1 m pour former un joli arrondi. Bon crochet!

Martine 11.10.2017 - 19:33:

Bonjour, Pour finir, que doit-on comprendre par coins ouverts vers l'extérieur ou intérieur ? --- Intérieurs: les coins en haut de C et en bas de D ? Merci beaucoup par avance.

Martine 04.10.2017 - 17:09:

Bonjour, Lorsqu'il est écrit à la fin de la la 2ème partie ( côté droit) : "mettre en attente"... En fait, on doit continuer de suite en superposant les milieux ... ? (Et donc en reprenant la partie gauche.) D'avance, merci.

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 08:49:

Bonjour Martine, on reprend les 2 côtés pour crocheter le dos en superposant les 5 m des 2 côtés (celles du côté gauche sous celles du côté droit) et en les crochetant ensemble. Bon crochet!

Martine 20.09.2017 - 17:01:

Merci. Lorsqu'il est écrit de piquer dans la bride, ce n'est pas piquer entre les brides mais bien dans la maille (du haut de la bride)...?

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 17:54:

Bonjour Martine, quand on doit faire 1 maille serrée ou 1 bride dans 1 bride, on pique le crochet sous les 2 brins de la bride du rang/tour précédent, comme on le fait normalement. Bon crochet!

Martine 20.09.2017 - 13:33:

Bonjour, Merci, je voulais avoir confirmation. Un petit détail: 2 vidéos sont proposées pour débuter ce carré. J'ai choisi le cercle magique mais peut-être faut-il un trou plus accentué et donc choisir de faire 5m...

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 13:52:

Bonjour Martine, vous pouvez au choix commencer avec l'une ou l'autre technique, il faut juste que votre carré soit bien plat. Bon crochet!

Martine 19.09.2017 - 18:05:

Bonjour, J'ai un souci pour débuter la nope au 4ème tour du carré. Finir le tour 3 avec une maille coulée dans la ms du tour précédent et ensuite ...? ----3 m en l'air pour la 1ere B ? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 08:35:

Bonjour Martine, le tour 4 commence par 1 nope, soit 3 brides écoulées ensemble, au début du tour, crochetez 3 ml (= 1ère bride) puis crochetez 2 brides mais sans faire le dernier jeté à la fin de chacune de ces 2 brides, et écoulez toutes les boucles sur le crochet. Bon crochet!

Lisa 22.03.2016 - 21:38:

Hallo Ihr lieben, ich habe eine Frage bezüglich des Rückenteils...dort steht : "auf beiden Seiten der Markierungsfäden je eine masche zunehmen". Das ist mir nicht so ganz verständlich. Könntet Ihr mir diesen Absatz im Abschnitt Rückenteil noch einmal näher erklären. Vielen lieben Dank !

DROPS Design 23.03.2016 kl. 14:18:

Liebe Lisa, vielleicht stört Sie die Formulierung mit "innerhalb"? Wir werden dies durch "vor bzw. nach" ersetzen. Die Maschen werden zugenommen, indem man 2 M in 1 M häkelt. Die Markierungsfäden markieren die Seiten"naht".

Anna-Lena 08.04.2013 - 22:23:

Helt underbar väst! Jag gjorde den i lavendel och sedan valde jag grått, vitt och jeans till rutorna fram! Jag har fått många uppskattande kommentarer. Men se upp med en sak, detta garn glider lätt så se till att fästa trådarna ordentligt! Jag delade garnet och nöt på avigsidan!
