To make the color transitions in Delight neat when starting a new ball of yarn it is important to use a ball beg with the same shade as finished the previous ball.

Replace first dc on each row/round with ch 3. Finish each round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in 1 dc.

BOBBLE (applies to crochet square):
1 bobble = 3 tr crochet tog, i.e. wait with last pull-through on each tr until all 3 tr have been crochet, make 1 YO and pull thread through all 4 loops on hook.

Worked back and forth – See NEW BALL OF YARN TIP and CROCHET INFO!
Ch 88-97-106-118 loosely with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Delight. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of the next 0-2-4-2 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* to end = 74-82-90-100 dc. Continue with 1 dc in each dc. When piece measures 5-6-7-8 cm / 2"-2 3/8"-2 3/4"-3 1/8" inc 1 dc each side in the next-to-last dc – See INCREASING TIP, repeat the inc
when piece measures 11-12-13-14 cm / 4 3/8"-4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½" and again when piece measures 17-18-19-20 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8" = 80-88-96-106 dc. Continue until piece measures 21-23-25-27 cm / 8 1/4"-9"-9 3/4"-10 5/8".

Work 1 dc in each of the 80-88-96-106 dc at the top along back piece, then ch 53-57-61-65 (= armhole), 1 dc in each of the 74-82-90-100 dc at the bottom along back piece, then ch 53-57-61-65 (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in first dc on round. On next round work 1 dc in each dc at the top and at the bottom of back piece and in each ch space work 47-51-55-59 dc = 248-272-296-324 dc. Continue in the round as follows:
ROUND 1: 1 dc in first dc (replace by 3 ch), * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with ch 1, skip 1 dc and work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2: 1 dc in each dc and 1 dc in each ch.
Repeat these 2 rounds - AT THE SAME TIME when edge piece measures approx 4 cm / 1½'' (adjust so that next round is a round with only dc) inc 32-34-36-38 dc evenly – See INCREASING TIP - repeat the inc when piece measures approx 7 and 10 cm / 2 3/4" and 4" = 344-374-404-438 dc. Crochet until edge piece measures approx 12-13-14-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½"-6" – adjust to after a round with only dc.

Ch 6 with Delight and hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 12 dc in ring – See CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: ch 5 (= 1 dc + ch 2), 1 dc in next dc, * ch 2, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* to end and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (= 12 ch spaces).
ROUND 3: 1 dc in each dc and 2 dc in each ch space (= 36 dc).
ROUND 4: ch 5, skip 2 dc, * 1 sc in next dc, ch 4, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in first ch (= 12 ch spaces).
ROUND 5: ch 5, skip first ch space, in next ch space crochet *-* as follows: * 1 BOBBLE – see above, ch 2, 1 bobble, ch 5, 1 bobble, ch 2, 1 bobble *, ch 4, 1 dc in sc between the next 2 ch spaces, ch 4, skip 1 ch space, in next ch space crochet *-*, ch 6, 1 dc in sc between the next 2 ch spaces, ch 6, skip 1 ch space, in next ch space crochet *-*, ch 4, 1 dc in sc between the next 2 ch spaces, ch 4, skip 1 ch space, in next ch space crochet *-*, finish with 2 ch and 1 sl st in third ch from beg of round.
ROUND 6: Crochet sc in all ch spaces as follows: 2 sc in first ch space, 2 sc in next, 7 sc in next (= corner), then 2 sc, 4 sc, 4 sc, 2 sc, 7 sc (= corner), 2 sc, 6 sc, 6 sc, 2 sc, 7 sc (= corner), 2 sc, 4 sc, 4 sc, 2 sc, 7 sc (= corner), 2 sc and 2 sc in last ch space, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round.
Cut the thread. Two of the sides are the same width - approx 9.5 cm / 3 3/4'', 1 side is only approx 8.5 cm / 3 1/4'' and 1 side is wider at approx 10.5 cm / 4 1/4''.

Crochet approx 18-20-22-24 squares.
Sew the squares tog to one long piece – sew edge to edge – and make sure to place all the shorter side towards the same side and all the longer sides towards the opposite side to make the piece curved.
Beg by sewing the 2 middle squares on the long piece to mid back at the top of edge piece – sew edge to edge. Continue down one side to mid back at the bottom of edge piece, then sew on the other side of the long piece from the top mid back – make sure seam is not too tight. If you need more/fewer squares adjust this before sewing on the last 2 squares mid back.

Crochet with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Delight round the whole bolero. Beg in the first square sewn to mid back and crochet as follows: 1 sc in second st on square, * 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch), skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* (= approx 11 picots along each square + 1 in transition between 2 squares), finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round.
Crochet a similar picot border round the armholes.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Når man har hæklet rygstykket som jo vendes ved hver række, og man går over til kantstykket, skal det så vendes hver omgang? eller hækler man kun med retsiden mod sig selv?

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 09:21:

Hei Tanja. Ja, kanten hekler du rundt, så du hekler hele tiden fra rettsiden. God fornøyelse

Carla 28.12.2017 - 01:26:

Hello! How are the squares supposed to be joined? Crochet or needle? Any joining technique recommended? Thanks

DROPS Design 29.12.2017 kl. 10:00:

Dear Carla, according to the pattern, the squares are sewn together (with a needle). Happy crocheting!

Laura 25.04.2017 - 15:37:

Buona sera. Sto per unire la striscia di quadrati al confronto del.bolero. Non capisco per l unione cucito con ago come ho fatto per unire i quadrati insieme? Prendendo l anello esterno del collo con quello esterni del quadrato? Grazie e a presto laura

DROPS Design 25.04.2017 kl. 16:05:

Buonasera Laura. Sì esatto, cuce lavorando nei fili più esterni delle maglie. Buon lavoro!

Laura 16.04.2017 - 23:12:

Buona sera. Ho iniziai il.gilet taglia s..solo.che arrivata al.bordo del dietro ho misurato e viene tropo grande...in effetti 22 maglie misurano 11 cm anziché 10. Quindi posso chiedere secondo voi con quante maglie devo iniziare al posto di 88..e quante saltate nella prima riga? Graziee e buona serata

DROPS Design 17.04.2017 kl. 09:03:

Buongiorno Laura, se il suo campione non corrisponde a quello indicato, deve rifarlo cambiando il numero di ferri: provi con mezza misura in meno. Buon lavoro!

Herdis Hundahl 16.03.2016 - 14:40:

Rygstykke: der står man skal hækle stangmasker i hver række. Men iflg. Billedet ser det ikke sådan ud. Det ser ud som om at der måske på hver tredie række skal springe over nogle eller hækle luftmasker. Der må være en fejl i opskriften.

DROPS Design 16.03.2016 kl. 15:29:

Hej Herdis, Ja på "KANTSTK" skal der hækles luftmasker, det er dem du kan se på billedet. Således står det i opskriften: 1.OMG: 1 st i første st (erstattes af 3 lm), * 1 lm, spring over 1 st, 1 st i næste st *, gentag fra *-* og slut af med 1 lm, spring over 1 st og 1 km i 3.lm i beg af omg. 2.OMG: 1 st i hver st og 1 st om hver lm. God fornøjelse!

Ik mis het telpatroon, klopt dat ?

DROPS Design 13.04.2015 kl. 12:56:

Hoi Monique. Er is geen telpatroon voor dit model. De werkwijze is geschreven in het patroon

Kathrin 24.01.2015 - 11:34:

Hallo,ich möchte sehr gern den Bolero nacharbeiten, allerdings soll er etwas länger werden - eher eine Weste. Funktioniert es, wenn ich entsprechend mehr Maschen für den Armausschnitt nehme?

DROPS Design 31.01.2015 kl. 10:32:

Es ist schwierig, das Modell umzuarbeiten. Grundsätzlich bestimmt das Rückenteil die Länge und die Armausschnitte, wenn Sie es länger arbeiten (und dabei die Zunahmen anpassen müssten!), werden auch die Armausschnitte tiefer, und Sie müssten beim Randstück mehr Lm über den Ausschnitten arbeiten, auch müssten Sie beim Zunehmen am Randstück mehr M zunehmen. Alles in allem sind leider zu viele Änderungen nötig, daraus ergäbe sich ein neues Modell, ich kann es ja mal als Vorschlag weiterleiten. :-)

TeBi 25.11.2014 - 10:04:

Dobry den. Existuje videonavod na hackovani ctvercu k modelu DROPS 126-8 (navod c. DE-026)? Dekuji.

DROPS Design 28.11.2014 kl. 10:02:

Dobrý den, tento konkrétní čtverec zatím na videu nemáme - ve videotéce však najdete čtverce podobné a také ukázky jejich sháčkování. Hodně zdaru!

Daniela 21.11.2014 - 22:28:

1. Werden in der Kante immer eine Reihe Stäbchen+Lm und eine Reihe nur Stäbchen in Stb. abwechselnd gehäkelt ? 2. wenn zugenommen wird, werden dann zwei Reihen hintereinander nur stäbchen gehäkelt (1. Reihe Stb+ Lm, 2.Reihe Stb in Stb, 3. Reihe stb + Zunahmen, 4. Reihe stb+Lm usw.) Danke für die Hilfe

DROPS Design 24.11.2014 kl. 23:36:

Liebe Daniela, zunächst einmal handelt es sich um Runden, nicht um R, das wird gleich korrigiert, der Rand wird ja rundum gehäkelt. Zu Frage 1: ja genau, die beiden Rd werden immer abwechselnd gehäkelt. Zu Frage 2: Sie häkeln weiterhin die beiden Rd abwechselnd und machen die Zunahmen in der 2. Rd, in der nur Stb gehäkelt werden. Danach machen Sie wieder eine Rd mit Stb + Lm.

Daniela Scheidt 04.11.2014 - 20:31:

Frage zur Kante: Für Größe L werden für das Armloch 57 Lm rechts und Links gehäkelt. in der nächsten Runde sollen 51 Stb in den Lm-Bogen gehäkelt werden. werden die Stb um die Lm gehäkelt? Ansonsten Frage ich mich welche Lm der 57 Lm nicht mit Stb gehäkelt werden. Danke

DROPS Design 05.11.2014 kl. 12:02:

Ja genau, Sie häkeln die Lm UM den Bogen aus 57 Lm. Damit sind die Lm verschiebbar und verteilen sich gleichmäßig. Es werden mehr Lm gehäkelt als Stb, damit der Armausschnitt nicht zu eng wird. Viel Spaß beim Weiterhäkeln!
