CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with ch 3, finish the row with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row.

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 and M.2. NOTE: 1st row in M.1 = RS.

INCREASE TIP 1 (when inc 2 dc for rounded front edge):
Inc 2 dc for rounded front edge at the end of every row towards mid front as follows: Work ch 4, turn piece, work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (there are now 2 dc at beg of row = 3 ch + 1 dc), then continue working row as before. At the end of next row towards mid front, work 1 hdc in last dc (instead of 1 dc in last dc) before inc new sts for rounded front edge. This is done to avoid a very jagged edge on the rounded front edge.

INCREASE TIP 2 (when inc 1 dc):
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same dc.

DECREASE TIP 1:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last YO and pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work next dc but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook (= dec 1 dc).

DECREASE TIP 2:
When dec several dc at the same time at the armhole, dec as follows:
At beg of row: Replace no of dc to be dec with 1 sl st in every dc.
At end of row: Turn piece when no of dc to be dec remains and continue working as before.

2ND ROW (= WS): READ CROCHET INFO!
Work 1 dc in every dc, turn piece.
Continue to work M.1 - NOTE: Arrow in diagram marks mid back, i.e. there should be 1 bobble in the middle st mid back, count out towards the side to find where to start in diagram.

Cut and fasten the thread, the piece measures approx. 34-36-38-40-42-44 cm / 13 3/8''-14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''. Repeat along the other shoulder.

AT THE SAME TIME after 2nd row, work M.1 - NOTE: The last bobble towards the side should be as many dc from side as on back piece, count outwards from the side to find where to start in the diagram from mid front. AT THE SAME TIME inc at the end of every row towards mid front as follows: Inc 2 dc a total of 4-4-5-5-5-6 times (incl inc on 2nd row), and then 1 dc a total of 4-5-5-5-6-6 times - READ INCREASE TIP 2.

ROUND 1: Start from RS and work 1 sc in first st, * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round - NOTE: This round should even out the armhole, skip more or fewer sts if needed.
ROUND 2: Work 1 sc in every sc and 1 sc in every ch the entire round while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting the no of sc so that it can be divided by 8.
ROUND 3 + 4: Work M.2 - NOTE: Start on the round marked with an arrow in the diagram. Finish 3rd round with 1 sl st in 2nd ch from beg of round and finish 4th round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

Work the same lace edge around the entire opening of the vest -
NOTE: Make sure that the edge is even and pretty around the entire opening.

Nir Halfon 19.02.2018 - 22:59:

Hello, When working on the Right Front Piece towards mid front do I use increase tip 1 only once for row 2? or for every row towards mid front. Later instructions state I should use increase tip 2. Thanks, Nir

DROPS Design 20.02.2018 kl. 08:42:

Dear Mrs Halfon, increase tip 1 is made at the end of row from WS to increase 2 sts towards mid front. Increase tip 2 is used when increasing 1 st for the side. Happy crocheting!

Raji Ajith 12.07.2016 - 11:21:

Hello... I need help for increasing tip 1.. To start row with ,4 chain and DC in the 4 th chain... 2 DC made... end of next row did I have to put 2dc and 1 hdc I. The last DC... or only 1 hdc Thank you

DROPS Design 12.07.2016 kl. 13:10:

Dear Mrs Ajith, at the end of row towards mid front, work 1 hdc in the last dc (instead of 1 dc in last dc), turn and inc as before with 4 ch, 1 dc in 4th chain from hook, 1 dc in next dc, etc. Happy crocheting!

Constanze 04.08.2014 - 17:23:

Ich habe ein Verständnisproblem beim Rückenteil. Dort steht nach x cm während des Noppenteils Maschen aufnehmen soll - soweit okay. Dass hätte ich jetzt über die 16 cm gemacht. Was hat das mit den 7x 97 Stäbchen auf sich ?

DROPS Design 04.08.2014 kl. 19:58:

Liebe Constanze, wenn die Arbeit 3 cm misst, nehmen beidseitig je 1 Stb zu, diese Zunahmen wiederholen Sie in jeder 2. R. Insgesamt arbeiten Sie diese Zunahmen 7x, d.h. Sie haben dann insgesamt 14 Stb zugenommen. Vorher hatten Sie ja 83 Stb, nach den Zunahmen haben Sie dann 97 Stb insgesamt. Bei einer Gesamtlänge von 18 cm arbeiten Sie dann die Armausschnitte, darauf bezieht sich nämlich die nächste Maßangabe, sie hat mit den Zunahmen nichts zu tun.

Tamara 30.03.2014 - 16:31:

Ik zou het gilet graag maken voor mijn dochters, ze hebben maat 110-116 en 128. Ik heb alleen geen idee hoe ik dit patroon kan omrekenen naar kindermaten. Kan iemand mij daar mee helpen, of is er een versie voor kinderen beschikbaar?

DROPS Design 01.04.2014 kl. 17:53:

Hoi Tamara. We hebben helaas niet een soortgelijk patroon voor kinderen. Je kan het patroon kleiner maken met hulp van de haakstekenverhouding (aantal stk in de breedte x toeren in de hoogte per 10 x 10 cm). Je weet hoe groot de kleinste maat is en kan vervolgens minder rekenen. Ik kan je helaas niet helpen met individuele aanpassingen, maar je mag ook altijd vragen bij jouw DROPS verkooppunt of één van de vele handwerkforums. Veel haakplezier.

Rumpel 14.08.2013 - 03:19:

Please help me with the right front piece, i don't understand much.how to inc tip 1 on 2nd row? does it mean that making 1 more dc in the next row, not 2nd row?

DROPS Design 14.08.2013 kl. 09:59:

Dear Rumpel, at beg of row from mid front, you will inc making 4 ch, 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (=first 3 ch= 1st dc (us - uk tr), we have here 2 dc), at the end of row from side towards mid front, crochet 1 hdc (us - uk htr) in the last dc to get a smoother curve. Happy crocheting!

Wijntje 14.04.2013 - 13:52:

Er staat in het patroon: 1 stk in de 4e l van de haak, * sla 1 l over, 1 stk in iedere van de volgende 3 l *, herhaal herhaal van *-*... Je haakt dus eerst 1 stk in de 4 l. Daarna sla je eerst 1 l over en haakt 1 stk in IEDERE van de volgende 3 l. Je haakt dus in elke 3 l 1 st een slaat elke 4e l over. Volgens mij klopt dit niet ik kom niet aan het aantal stokjes en het staat bol omdat er te veel lossen worden overgeslagen

DROPS Design 16.04.2013 kl. 21:19:

Het patroon klopt. Bijvoorbeeld maat S. Je hebt 91 l. Haak 1 stk in de 4 l van de nld (= 2 stk). Dan sla je 1 l over en 1 stk in elk van de volgende 3 l (= 3 stk per 4 l), dat wordt 21 keer 3 stk per 4 l (= 63 stk) en je hebt dan ook 2 l. Hier haak je 1 stk in elke l = 67 stk op de toer. Bekijk ook of je stekenverhouding correct is ;o). Veel haakplezie verder.

Ntref 02.12.2012 - 12:24:

Hallo,ik snap he niet zo goed! er staat 1L overslaan dan in de 3e L stk en herhaal dus dat is eigenlijk in elke 4eL een stokje maar dan krijg ik te weinig stokjes?

DROPS Design 03.12.2012 kl. 15:47:

Michelle Meyers 06.09.2012 - 01:00:

Re: Inc Tip 1. It seems like you are increasing at the beginning of the row which starts at the mid front. To increase 9 times (for Med) it would require a minimum of 19 rows which would exceed the 16 cm length at which neckline decreases begin. What am I missing?

DROPS Design 12.11.2012 kl. 11:18:

Dear Mrs Meyers, Inc Tip 1 includes both inc at beg of row and at the end of row towards mid front. So that you will inc each row. Happy Crocheting !

Deloris 09.07.2012 - 12:13:

I need a chart for the sides. Is one available?

Elena 06.05.2012 - 19:51:

A que se llama p.a?? que punto es?

DROPS Design 06.05.2012 kl. 20:34:

Elena, p.a. es la abreviatura de punto alto. Al final de las instrucciones puedes ver el video tutorial de este punto.
