CARDIGAN:

Crochet gauge: 9 tc = approx. 10 cm in width
1 row of tc measures approx. 3 cm in height.

Pattern: See the Diagrams. The pattern is seen from the right side.

Rib: * K 3, P 3 *, repeat * - *.

Crochet tip: At the beginning of every row with tc replace 1st tc with ch 4. Crochets in every tc from previous row, not between them.

Decreasing tips: Dec or bind off as follows:
At the beginning of row: replace each tc to be decreased with 1 sl st.
At the end of row: turn piece when the number of tc to be decreased remains, and crochet back.

Measuring tips: measure piece when lying flat.

Back: Ch 69-75-81-87-93. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 45-49-53-57-61 tc.
Now crochet pattern following Diagr.1. At the same time on the 1st and 3 rows the 2nd and 3rd repeats of Diagr.1, dec 1 tc at each side = 37-41-45-49-53 tc – see decreasing tips above.
When the piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67 cm – adjust length so that you bind off on a row with tc (if you bind off on the 2nd row of Diagr.1, 1 ch = 1 tc when bound off) – bind off 2-4-4-6-8 tc at each side for armhole = 33-33-37-37-37 tc.
When you have repeated Diagr.1 a total of 4 times (the piece measures approx. 75 cm), repeat the first row in Diagr.1 to finished measurements (that is, continue in tc, be sure the number of tc stays the same).
When the piece measures 75-78-81-84-87 cm crochet the last row with only 10-10-12-12-12 tc at each side for shoulder.
Cut yarn and fasten, the piece measures approx. 78-81-84-87-90 cm.

Right front: Read entire section before crocheting:
Ch 33-39-39-45-51. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 21-25-25-29-33 tc.
Now crochet pattern following Diagr.1.
Side decs: On the 1st and 3 rows the 2nd and 3rd repeats of Diagr.1, dec 1 tc at the side as on back.
Neck shaping: When the piece measures 20 cm dec 1 tc at the center front every row marked with a star (*) in Diagr.1 a total of 5-7-5-7-9 times – see decreasing tips above.
When the piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67 cm – adjust to match back – bind off for armhole at the side as on back.
After all decs 10-10-12-12-12 tc remain on shoulder.
When you have repeated Diagr.1 a total of 4 times (the piece measures approx. 75 cm), repeat the first row in Diagr.1 to finished measurements as on back. Cut yarn and fasten when the piece measures 78-81-84-87-90 cm.

Left front: Crochet same as the right, reversing shaping.

Sleeve: Ch 33-39-39-45-51. Crochet the first row as follows: 1 tc in 5th ch from hook, * skip over 1 ch, 1 tc in the next 2 ch *, repeat * - * and finish with 1 tc in last ch = 21-25-25-29-33 tc.
Repeat Diagr.1 a total of 2 times, and then follow Diagr.2 to finished measurements.
At the same time when Diagr.1 has been crocheted 1 time (the piece measures approx. 21 cm) inc 1 tc at each side every row marked with a star (*) in diagram a total of 5-4-4-4-4 times at each side = 31-33-33-37-41 tc.
When the piece measures approx. 54-54-54-51-48 cm put a marker at each side (markers show where the sleeves will be sewn into armhole).
Crochet 1-1-1-2-3 row more, then cut yarn and fasten, the piece measures approx. 57 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams edge to edge. Sew side seams edge to edge.
Sew sleeve seams in the same manner up to the marker and sew in sleeves – the marker on sleeves should match up with the side seams on Body. Make sure the seams are not too tight.
Edge: Pick up and knit approx. 195-219 sts (divisible by 6 + 3) along right front, back neck and down left front. K 2 rows (1st row = wrong side). Then knit rib, keeping 3 sts in garter st at each end, and begin rib with K 3 (as seen from the right side).
When the rib measures approx. 7 cm inc all K 3 to K 4 (as seen from the right side) over the center 21 sts in back neck. When edge measures 12 cm, bind off all sts loosely in rib – as you are binding off, inc all P 3 to P 4 (as seen from the right side) over the center 21 sts in back neck.

Neck shaping- what does center front mean? Am I technically deceasing 2 dec at the begging of each repeat of Diag 1 on the 2nd and 3rd repeat than continue 3 more times at the row with the *? I am sorry I keep reaching out to you but the shop I ordered my yarn from site has been down and i can't reach them :(

DROPS Design 25.01.2018 kl. 07:32:

Dear Teresa, center front is the side towards front band (opposite to side towards back piece). You will decrease for neck in row 1 and 2 at the beg from RS on right front piece a total of 5-7-9 times (see size) every time you work the row with a star in Diag. 1. Happy crocheting!

Teresa Rey 22.01.2018 - 01:46:

I've gotten to row 5 finished the chains now I need to begin row 6 from left to right of pattern. No indication to slip stitch as on row 7 so am I to chain 2 sc than begin next row of chain 9"s?

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 10:33:

Dear Mrs Rey, at the beginning of row 6 crochet 3 sl st (see symbol "v" in diagram and under key) then 1 sc in ch-space, then chain 6, 1 sc in next ch-space, ..; happy crocheting!

Teresa Rey 27.12.2017 - 23:02:

I too love this pattern but not good at reading and understanding the diagram I do better with written instruction Is it possible to get a written pattern? once i get going than the diagram starts to make sense

DROPS Design 29.12.2017 kl. 10:05:

Dear Teresa, the diagram is not available in a form that is written out in more detail than it already is, however, you can always can get in person help in teh store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy crafting!

Mariette 03.04.2016 - 22:43:

Ik snap het voorpand niet helemaal. Minder je aan beide kanten? En het stukje waar staat minder vanaf een hoogt van 20 cm 5-7-5-7-9 x 1 dstk. Wat wordt daar mee bedoeld? Ik begin met 39 ls en daarna 25 dstk. Bij de gewone minderingen en de mouwen zit ik al op nog maar 15 Stokjes.

DROPS Design 05.04.2016 kl. 13:20:

Hoi Mariette. Je mindert aan de zijkant zoals je deed op het achterpand (dus dit alleen voor de zijkant) en daarbij moet je ook minderen voor de hals (= middenvoor) vanaf 20 cm. Je mindert 5-7-5-7-9 keer 1 dstk (het aantal keer afhankelijk van welke maat je maakt) op de toer gemarkeerd met een sterretje op het telpatroon.

PETIT 29.11.2015 - 20:35:

Bonjour, pour la bordure, à 7 cm du bord, il y a augmentation de 1 maille dans les sections de mailles envers. Ces augmentations doivent elles être faites sur toute la bordure ou uniquement sur la partie correspondant aux 21 MAILLES CENTRALES de l'encolure dos ? D'avance je vous remercie pour votre réponse. Cordialement Isabelle

DROPS Design 30.11.2015 kl. 11:01:

Bonjour Mme Petit, les augmentations se font au niveau des 21 m centrales, on va augmenter 2 m env de chaque côté du milieu dos. On va ainsi avoir 4 fois des côtes 3 m end/4 m env (vu sur l'endroit) au niveau du milieu dos (à l'encolure) et des côtes 3 m end/3 m env (vu sur l'endroit) avant/après, comme avant. Bon tricot!

"When you have repeated Diagr.1 a total of 4 times (the piece measures approx. 75 cm), repeat the first row in Diagr.1 to finished measurements (that is, continue in tc, be sure the number of tc stays the same). When the piece measures 75-78-81-84-87 cm crochet the last row with only 10-10-12-12-12 tc at each side for shoulder. Cut yarn and fasten, the piece measures approx. 78-81-84-87-90 cm." Can someone give me a easier explanation within the quotes

DROPS Design 20.08.2015 kl. 13:58:

Dear Mrs Murphy, after you have worked Diag. 1 a total of 4 times in height (you should get 75 cm in heith), continue in tc (as in row 1 in Diag A) make sure you keep correct number of sts. At the same time, when piece measures 75-87 cm (see your size), work 1 row over the outermost 10-12 tc in each side for the shoulders (= leave the middle tc unworked for neckline). Happy crocheting!

Emilie 05.04.2015 - 17:42:

Bonjour, pourriez-vous me dire ce qu'est le diagramme M1? Il s'agit du diagramme complet? Car je ne vois nulle part écrit m1... Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 07.04.2015 kl. 09:23:

Bonjour Emilie, M1 correspond à la partie encadrée soit Diag. 1 dans le diagramme et M2 à Diag.2. Bon crochet!

Kayla 12.01.2015 - 20:02:

Would anyone here that has commented able to help I have no idea how to follow a diagram pattern was wondering if any one could convert it to written pattern I would so love to make this pattern if so please leave contact information

Kayla 06.01.2015 - 22:56:

Is there a written pattern for the diagram I do not understand how to follow diagrams i can follow them like row 1 just need to know how to do pattern written Thank you so much for your time and consideration

DROPS Design 07.01.2015 kl. 10:25:

Dear Kayla, each stitch is representated by a symbol - diagram text is above measurement chart - start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the left side (diag. 2) and read towards the right, on row 2, read from the right towards the left and so on. Remember you can get also help from your DROPS Store. Happy crocheting!

Sandy 30.11.2014 - 19:06:

I would love to see this cardigan from the back, if possible please. Thank you

DROPS Design 01.12.2014 kl. 13:58:

Dear Sandy, we do not have pictures from back piece, but back piece will be worked as front piece, with same pattern, so as you can see on the picture. Happy crocheting!
