----------------------------------------------------------

BODY PIECE:
Worked from top down, back and forth from mid front. Work 91-99-107-115-123-131 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) with crochet hook size 4.5 mm and Nepal. Work next row as follows:
1 tr in 4th ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-*, skip 1 ch and finish with 1 tr in the last 2 ch = 67-73-79-85-91-97 tr – see CROCHET INFO. Now work 10 rows acc to M.1 (5 tr each side = front band, work 1 tr in each tr – not included in diagram). After M.1 there are 162-178-194-210-226-242 tr on row. Continue with 1 tr in each tr. When piece measures 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm continue as follows: 5 tr on front band, 1-0-2-1-0-2 tr, repeat M.2 until 6-5-7-6-5-7 tr remain, finish with 1-0-2-1-0-2 tr and 5 tr on front band. Continue with 1 tr in each tr until piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm. Work next row as follows: 24-27-30-33-36-40 tr (front piece), 8 ch (under sleeve/armhole), skip 38-40-42-44-46-46 tr from previous round (to be used later for sleeve), 38-44-50-56-62-70 tr (back piece), 8 ch (under sleeve/armhole), skip 38-40-42-44-46-46 tr from previous row (to be used later for sleeve) and 24-27-30-33-36-40 tr (front piece). Continue with 1 tr in each tr/ch = 102-114-126-138-150-166 tr. Insert a marker in the middle of the 8 ch under sleeve each side (back piece = 46-52-58-64-70-78 tr, front piece = 28-31-34-37-40-44 tr). Continue with 1 tr in each tr. When piece measures 34-36-38-40-42-44 cm dec 8 sts evenly (do not dec on front band) - see DECREASING TIP = 94-106-118-130-142-158 tr. When piece measures 40-42-44-46-48-50 cm inc 12-12-12-12-12-14 tr evenly (do not inc on front band) = 106-118-130-142-154-172 tr. When piece measures 43-45-47-49-51-53 cm continue as follows: 5 tr on front band, repeat M.2, finish with 5 tr on front band. Continue with 1 tr in each tr until piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, cut and fasten thread.

SLEEVE:
Worked from top down. Beg mid under sleeve as follows: 1 dc in the 5th of the 8 ch under sleeve/on armhole. Work 3 ch (= 1 tr) and continue with 1 tr in each ch. NOTE: Before continuing over armhole work 1 tr in transition (to avoid a hole). Continue with 1 tr in each tr over armhole, work 1 tr in transition and work 1 tr in each of the remaining ch under sleeve = 48-50-52-54-56-56 tr. Insert a marker mid under sleeve. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work 1 tr in each tr. When piece measures 4 cm dec 1 tr each side of marker, see DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every 4.5-4.5-4-4-4-4 cm, a total of 8-8-9-9-9-9 times = 32-34-34-36-38-38 tr. Cut and fasten thread when sleeve measures 45-45-44-44-43-43 cm – NOTE – less for the larger sizes because of wider neck and shoulder.
ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons on left front piece – place the top one 1 cm from neckline, then the remaining with approx 8 cm between each. Use gap between 2 tr on front band as buttonhole.

Hello, sorry for disturbing. I am a beginner and English is not my first language and this makes this pattern confusing. At line 4 of the explanation I have to use the M1 diagram, but how?\r\nShould it be 5dc+M1 repeated until the last 5 stitches (6 DC +2 DC in the same stitch) +5dc?\r\nOr the diagram has to be read from bottom to top? I\'m lost... Thank you in advance!

Dear Mrs Cornaggia, work M.1 as follows: 5 dc (= front band sts), then repeat M.1 until 5 sts remain and finish with 5 dc. On row 1 in M.1 you will work: *2 dc in same st, 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts*, repeat from *-*. On row 2, work: * 1 dc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 dc in same st*, repeat from *-*. Continue like this, ie read RS rows from the right towards the left and WS rows from the left towards the right. Happy crocheting!

Carmen 10.12.2018 - 22:31:

Cuando ya tengo 18 cm en el cuerpo después de la cenefa dice 1-0-2-1-0-2 peo no entiendo que quiere decir. Son p.a ? Saltos? Cadenas? Podrían explicarlo, por favor. Gracias

DROPS Design 16.12.2018 kl. 22:15:

Hola Carmen. Revisé el patrón y no he encontrado el fallo que estás mencionando. En todos casos, la fila se trabaja con puntos altos (p.a.)

Lilith Kenis 20.11.2018 - 01:22:

Are there any pictures of the back? Thank you and greeting from Belgium in Europe

DROPS Design 20.11.2018 kl. 08:36:

Dear Mrs Kenis, there is no picture of the back of this jacket, it looks like the front piece (without buttons and opening of course). Happy crocheting!

Pansi 03.10.2018 - 10:53:

Hej! jag är inte den mest rutinerade när det gäller att läsa mönster. När jag virkat färdigt oket enligt mönster nr 1 har jag mycket fler maskor än det står i mönstret. Ska jag först virka 5 maskor och sedan börja med att virka enligt mönstret eller ska jag virka enligt mönstret direkt? Jag har provat båda delar men lyckas trots det inte få rätt antal maskor i slutändan. Känner mig jättedum men hittar inte felen.

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 08:46:

Hei Pansi. De 5 stavene til stolpe i hver side av arbeidet er ikke inkludert i mønster M.1. Du hekler altså 5 staver til stolpe, 19-21-23-25-27-29 rapporter av M.1 (altså så mange ganger M.1 gjentas i bredden) 5 staver til stolpe. Den første raden av M.1 hekles over 3 av de stavene du allerede har slik: hekle 2 staver i første stav, hekle 1 stav i hver av de neste 2 stavene = 1 stav økt. Dette gjentar du til det gjenstår 5 staver (stolpe). Når M.1 er heklet 1 gang i høyden er det 8 staver i hver rapport. Altså det økes 1 stav i hver rapport av M.1 på rad 1, 2, 5, 7 og 10. På de andre radene hekles 1 stav i hver stav. God fornøyelse.

Lilyrose 18.06.2018 - 10:24:

Bonjour madame. Est-ce normal que je doive utiliser un crochet n° 6 au lieu de 4.5 comme préconisé. Ce qui fait un point qui ne rend pas du tout comme sur la photo, mais beaucoup plus aéré. Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 13:44:

Bonjour Lilyrose, chacune a sa propre façon de crocheter, plus ou moins serré/lâche. Pour obtenir le même résultat que sur la photo, vous devez avoir 12 brides x 7 rangs = 10 x 10 cm. Vous pouvez avoir besoin d'un crochet plus fin ou plus gros, en fonction de votre propre façon de crocheter. Quand votre échantillon est fait, vous pouvez le laver et le faire sécher, vérifiez alors vos mesurez et essayez un nouvel échantillon si besoin. Bon crochet!

Maria Jose 17.07.2017 - 15:56:

(5 p.a. a cada lado = la cenefa, trabajar 1 p.a. en cada p.a. - no incluidos en el diagrama). ? no entiendo que es la cenefa... en caso de ser el medio del hombro tomo 5 puntos altos a cada lado es asi?

DROPS Design 27.07.2017 kl. 12:40:

Hola Maria Jose. La cenefa son los 5 primeros y los 5 últimos puntos de la fila, es decir, 5 puntos a cada lado de la labor hacia el centro del delantero.

CAROL VAN BEEK 12.07.2017 - 01:49:

Is it possible to do this pattern in a Yarn Group B? Would doing a larger size make this possible? Thanks.

DROPS Design 12.07.2017 kl. 06:17:

Hi Carol, You can use yarn from group B, but then you need to adjust the number of stitches throughout the pattern so you get the right crochet tension. Either that or follow the pattern for a different size when you have worked out the tension you need. A bit of a job but possible if that is what you want to do. Kind regards, Deirdre

Ella 01.12.2016 - 20:40:

Laat maar, ik ben er zelf uitgekomen.

Ella 01.12.2016 - 16:08:

Ik bedoel het teken in telpatroon M2, twee schuine strepen met streepjes erdoorheen , die elk een andere kant op wijzen en twee dakjes er boven.
