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

CROCHET TIP (applies to round yoke):
If crochet tension is not correct in height the yoke will be too short or too long. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra row with tr or one row less with tr evenly between dec.

DECREASE TIP 1 (applies to waist and yoke):
Dec 1 tr by working 2 tr tog, i.e. work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 more tr and pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.

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

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in same tr.
--------------------------------------------------------

2ND ROW: Work 1 tr in every tr.
Insert 4 markers in the piece as follows:
1st marker after 19-21-23-25-28-31 tr from mid front, 2nd marker after another 54-60-64-72-78-86 tr, 3rd marker after another 35-37-43-45-53-57 tr, 4th marker after yet another 54-60-64-72-78-86 tr (19-21-23-25-28-31 tr remain on row after last marker).
Work back and forth with 1 tr in every tr and move the markers upwards. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3 cm, dec 1 tr before 1st and 3rd marker and after 2nd and 4th marker (= 4 tr dec on row) - READ DECREASE TIP 1. Repeat dec approx. every 4 cm a total of 5 times = 161-179-197-219-245-271 tr on row.
When piece measures 22 cm, inc 1 tr before 1st and 3rd marker and after 2nd and 4th marker (= 4 tr inc) - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc approx. every 1-1-1-1½-1½-1½ cm a total of 7 times = 189-207-225-247-273-299 tr on row. When piece measures 31-33-33-35-35-37 cm (finish with one row from WS), divide for armholes and work each part separately.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Start from RS and work 43-48-52-58-64-71 tr from mid front, turn piece, work the first 2 tr tog and work the rest of row. Turn piece, work the first 40-45-49-55-61-68 tr and work the next 2 tr tog, turn piece, work the first 2 tr tog and work the rest of row (last row is from WS) = 40-45-49-55-61-68 tr on row, cut the thread.

BACK PIECE:

Now work M.1 in the round - see explanation above!
After M.1 continue back and forth (worked back and forth to make the crochet structure the same on body and sleeves). Work 1st row as follows: 1 tr in every tr while AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-0-2-2-6-6 tr evenly = 56-56-58-58-62-62 tr. Continue with 1 tr in every tr.

Repeat inc approx. every 3-2½-2½-2-2-2 cm a total of 10-12-13-15-15-18 times = 76-80-84-88-92-98 tr. When piece measures 45-44-44-43-43-42 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width),
work 1 sl st in each of the first 5 tr at beg of row from RS, work 66-70-74-78-82-88 tr and turn piece (there is now an opening of 5 tr in each side (= mid under sleeve).

Now work tr back and forth on yoke while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 1 tr - READ DECREASE TIP 1 - before every marker = 255-279-305-333-367-401 tr. Repeat dec alternately before and after markers (seen from RS) every 3rd row a total of 9-9-10-10-11-11 times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 47-49-51-52-54-56 cm (measured straight down along mid front), dec for neck in each side towards mid front on every row as follows – READ DECREASE TIP 2:
7 tr 1 time, 3 tr 3 times. Continue to dec 1 tr towards mid front on every row until all dec on yoke are done.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Start mid front, at top of corner on right front piece. Crochet on hook size 3.5 mm around the neck as follows:
Start with 1 dc in first tr, * 1 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *-* around the neck and finish with 1 dc at the front of neck at top of corner on left front piece. Turn piece. Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch over every dc around the neck until 8 sts remain (= 4 dc + 4 ch) on right front piece. Turn piece. Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch over every dc until 8 sts remain on left front piece. Turn piece.
Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch in every dc around the neck until 16 sts remain before edge on right front piece (= 8 dc and 8 ch). Turn piece. Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch over every dc around the neck until 16 sts remain before edge on left front piece. Turn piece. Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch over every dc around the neck until 24 sts remain before edge on right front piece (= 12 dc and 12 ch). Turn piece. Work 1 dc in every ch and 1 ch over every dc until 24 sts remain before edge on left front piece. Cut the thread.

LACE EDGES:
Work on hook size 3.5 mm with Baby Merino as follows:

Along mid front:
Start from RS and work 1 row dc up along right front piece - there should be approx. 23 dc on 10 cm up along mid front. Adjust so that no of sts can be divided by 6 + 2 sts. Then work 1 row from WS with 1 tr in every dc. Then work M.2 but skip 1st row in M.2 (= dc row).
Repeat along left front piece.

Around the neck:
Work M.2 along the neckline (start with dc row and adjust no of sts on row so that it can be divided by 6 + 2 sts).

Bottom edge:
Work M.2 along the bottom edge of jacket (start with dc row and adjust no of sts on row so that it can be divided by 6 + 2 sts).

Sleeves:
Work M.2 along the bottom edge of each sleeve (start with dc row and adjust no of sts on row so that it can be divided by 6 + 2 sts).

POCKETS:
Crochet 15 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Baby Merino.
Work 1st row as follows: Work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in each of the remaining ch = 13 tr. Work M.1 back and forth, arrow in diagram marks middle tr on pocket, count outwards from there.
AT THE SAME TIME work new tr at end of every row in each side: 3 tr 1 time, 2 tr 1 time and 1 tr 4 times = a total of 31 tr (make new tr by working same no of ch at end of row as no of tr to be inc + 2 ch, turn piece, work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook and 1 tr in the each of the remaining ch (if any) before continuing). Continue with bobbles and tr vertically until pocket measures approx. 11 cm vertically - after last row with bobbles work one row with tr while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr = 32 tr. Then work M.2 at top of pocket (start with dc row), cut and fasten the thread. Crochet another pocket. Sew pockets on to front piece, approx. 5 cm from bottom edge and approx. 8 cm in from mid front on each front piece. Sew 6 buttons on to left front piece, 2 cm below first dec for neck and then evenly spaced with approx. 8 cm between each. Button the jacket in the lace edge.

Hej. Kan jag virka denna i drops Paris? Har nämligen 1 kg av detta garn och vill virka något liknande.

DROPS Design 09.08.2019 kl. 08:32:

Hej Lena, nej DROPS Baby Merino = garngrupp A och DROPS Paris = garngrupp C. Det vill säga att Paris blir för tjock för mönstret. Har ser du mönster som passar till DROPS Paris: mönster till DROPS Paris

Mia Johansson 18.02.2019 - 15:34:

Hej! Jag undrar vad "från mitt fram" syftar på i följande beskrivning: HÖGER FRAMST: Starta från rätsidan och virka 43-48-52-58-64-71 st från mitt fram... Innebär det att jag ska starta från början på det räta varvet eller ska jag starta längre in på framstycket? Mvh Mia Johansson

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 13:50:

Hei Mia. Fra midt foran betyr at du starter på den siden av arbeidet som vil være midt foran når du har jakken på deg. Altså ved jakkeåpningen (i motsetning til om du starter i siden av jakken = siden på kroppen) Så du starter i enden, og denne enden blir midt foran på jakken. God fornøyelse

Lone 07.02.2019 - 10:59:

Hvordan udvælger jeg den rigtige størrelse, når bryst mål svarer til en str L og resten af målene er str M

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 15:51:

Hej Lone, hvis du ikke selv kan justere lidt med udtagningerne omkring brystmålet, så er du nødt til at vælge en str L. God fornøjelse!

Maggie 25.12.2018 - 00:18:

Which row is right side

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 09:32:

Dear Maggie, the right side of piece is the side where you crocheted the first row at the very beginning of the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Maggie 25.12.2018 - 00:17:

Which row is right side

Ginette Himbeault 03.11.2018 - 13:32:

Bonjour, pour l'empiècement dois je diminuer le 1er rang avant les marqueurs le 2e rang après et faire 1rang ou 3 rangs sans diminution. merci

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Mme Himbeault, pour l'empiècement, vous diminuez tous les 3 rangs (alternativement sur l'endroit et sur l'envers), la 1ère fois avant chacun des marqueurs, la fois suivante après chacun des marqueurs et ainsi de suite, autrement dit, vous diminuez alternativement avant et après chaque marqueur à chaque rang de diminutions. Bon crochet!

Ivana 13.08.2018 - 13:03:

Hello! I have a question. Is it possible to use Muskat instead of Merino? Or you wouldn't recommend such an exchange? Thank you! Ivana

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 15:40:

Dear Ivana, this pattern is worked with BabyMerino (= yarn group A) while DROPS Muskat belongs to yarn group B so that you cannot use it as an alternative. Click on our yarn converter to check all possible alternatives - remember that yarn with different texture will gives a different result. Happy crocheting!

Robin 07.12.2017 - 02:48:

What does the abbreviation rdc mean? Also in the first row the instructions read “1 dc in each of the next ch 3, skip 1 ch” do I chain 1 and skip a stitch or just skip a stitch?

DROPS Design 07.12.2017 kl. 10:01:

Dear Robin, it looks to be just a typo, it should be here "dc". To avoid the fundation edge being tighter than the first row, you will crochet more chains than you need dc, work 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch and skip next chain, repeat to the end of row to get the correct number of dc at the end of 1st row. Happy crocheting!

Kim 01.06.2017 - 04:22:

I'm running into some problems with this pattern. So just to check I'd like to know how many times you actually decrease at the end of the yoke. For my size it says to decrease a total of 9 times, but then I end up with too few stitches. So am I interpreting this wrong?

DROPS Design 01.06.2017 kl. 09:01:

Dear Kim, you will dec 1 st alternately before/after each marker, you will dec a total of 22-24 sts per row in size S-M. On first dec row you dec 1 st before each marker, on next row you will dec 1 st after each marker, and continue like this alternately before/after each marker. Happy crocheting!

Marina 22.09.2016 - 12:30:

Hello :) The picture shows lace edging to the sleeves. I can't find the instructions how to work M2 diagram at the very end of the sleeves (do i begin to work M2 in 72 ch or 56 ch?). Help please? Thanks Marina Petrovic

DROPS Design 22.09.2016 kl. 13:45:

Dear Marina, rather work in the 56 ch worked on 1st row in sleeve to avoid the edge being too wavy. Happy crocheting!
