NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
TEMPORARY CAST ON EDGE:
Crochet a row with ch - unravel this row afterwards to get the cast on sts on needle again. Cut the thread - do not fasten. Use a new thread to knit up sts in ch-row.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams M.1 to M.4B. The diagrams show the pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st in each side as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, work the next 2 sts tog, work until 3 sts remain on needle, work the next 2 sts tog, 1 edge st in garter st. Make sure that pattern in M.1 is correct when dec, adjust when there are fewer sts, i.e. sometimes there is no room to work pattern at beg and end of row. Make sure that pattern in the rest of diagram is correctly above each other as before.

TR-GROUPS:
1 tr-group = 2 tr, 2 ch, 2 tr in same ch-loop. Replace 1st tr on round with 3 ch, then work 1 tr-group in every ch-loop, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round, work sl st until next ch-loop to beg next round.
----------------------------------------------------------

BOLERO:
Worked back and forth on needle. Worked sideways, first from left shoulder to the bottom of right sleeve, and then from cast on edge to bottom of left sleeve.

BACK PIECE:
Crochet TEMPORARY CAST ON EDGE - Read explanation above - with BabyAlpaca Silk on hook size 3.5 mm as follows: Loosely crochet 80-96-101 ch, then use a new thread and needle size 3.5 mm to knit up 1 st in every ch on ch-row = 80-96-101 sts (1st row = RS). Work next row from WS as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, P until 2 sts remain and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
SIZE S/M and XXL/XXXL:
= 80-101 sts. On next row from RS work as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, * diagram M.4A, diagram M.4B *, repeat from *-* a total of 3-4 times, then diagram M.4A 1 more time, finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue in pattern with 2 sts in garter st in each side until piece measure approx 32-39 cm - finish 1 full repeat of diagram M.4A - AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-1 st on last row = 80-102 sts.
SIZE L/XL:
= 96 sts. On next row from RS work as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, * diagram M.4B, diagram M.4A *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, then diagram M.4B 1 more time, finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue in pattern with 2 sts in garter st in each side until piece measure approx 35 cm, finish with 1 full repeat of M.4A.

RIGHT SLEEVE:
= 80-96-102 sts. Then work diagram M.2 1 time vertically with 2 sts in garter st in each side - AT THE SAME TIME on last row in diagram M.2 adjust no of sts to 84-94-104. Then work diagram M.3 (= 8-9-10 repetitions of diagram M.3 with 2 sts in garter st in each side), and then diagram M.2 1 time vertically with 2 sts in garter st in each side. NOTE: On last row in the second repetition of diagram M.2 adjust no of sts to 82-98-106 (= 10-12-13 repetitions of diagram M.1 with 1 st in garter st in each side). Place a marker each side of work (sleeve seam ends here).
Then work diagram M.1 with 1 st in garter st in each side. When diagram M.1 has been worked 8 rows vertically, dec on next row (= 9th row in diagram M.1) 1 st inside 1 edge st in each side - Read DECREASE TIP above. Repeat dec on every 6th-3rd-3rd row a total of 8-16-16 times = 66-66-74 sts (= 8-8-9 repetitions of diagram M.1 with 1 st in garter st in each side). Work M.1 3 times vertically and then work rows 1-8 in M.1 1 more time (= 56 rows M.1 in total). Then work 2 rows in stocking st before loosely casting off all sts (piece measures approx. 61-64-68 cm from cast on edge).

LEFT SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle size 3.5 mm. Worked from left shoulder to the bottom of left sleeve. Unravel the ch-row on the temporary cast on edge and slip cast on sts back on needle = 80-96-101 sts. Then work diagram M.2, beg on 3rd row (instead of 1st row) in pattern - AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-0-1 st on same row = 80-96-102 sts. Then work as on right sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the piece double so that the longest sides of the bolero (markers on each sleeve) are place towards each other. Sew the sleeve seams inside 1 edge st as follows: Beg at the bottom of sleeve, sew towards mid front until markers (or desired length), repeat on the other sleeve.

CROCHET EDGE:
Crochet from RS on hook size 3.5 mm with BabyAlpaca Silk as follows:
ROUND 1: Beg mid under one sleeve, crochet along the opening between the sleeves (approx. 15 dc on 5 cm, or approx. 10 dc on every repetition of diagram M.4A, no of sts must be divisible by 5), finish round with 1 sl st in 1st dc. NOTE: Make sure to work enough dc to avoid a tight edge.
ROUND 2: 1 ch, in 1st dc work 3 ch, 1 tr, 2 ch and 2 tr, * skip the next 4 dc, in next dc work 2 tr, 2 ch and 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: Read TR-GROUPS above! In every ch-loop on round work 1 tr-group.
Repeat 3RD ROUND until edge measures approx. 6 cm. On next round work in every ch-loop as follows: 3 tr, 2 ch, 3 tr. Repeat this round until edge measures approx. 10-11-12 cm, cut and fasten the thread.

CROCHET EDGE - SLEEVE:
Crochet an edge from RS at the bottom of sleeve on hook size 3.5 mm with BabyAlpaca Silk as follows:
ROUND 1: Beg mid under sleeve, work approx. 15 dc on 5 cm (no of sts must be divisible by 5), finish round with 1 sl st in 1st dc. NOTE: Make sure to work enough dc to avoid a tight edge.
Then work ROUNDS 2 and 3 as on the bolero edge, repeat 3RD ROUND for approx. 6-7-8 cm, cut and fasten the thread. Repeat on the edge of the other sleeve.

Merci à toute votre équipe pour votre travail et ces merveilleux modèles. Je viens de terminer l'ensemble top et boléro en drops safran et je suis vraiment satisfaite. Cordialement

Frida W 28.06.2019 - 09:27:

Hej. Jag är ganska van att sticka, men har nästan inte virkat förut. Finns någon instruktionsvideo för ST-GRUPP till det här mönstret? Vad innebär ”2st om samma lm-båge”? Tack!

DROPS Design 04.07.2019 kl. 07:42:

Hej Frida. Tyvärr inte på just detta mönster, men kanske denna video kan vara till någon hjälp. Lycka till!

Thiron 10.05.2018 - 20:29:

Ik heb problemen met de rand van de mouw. Ik krijg een opstaande mouw in plaats van een aansluitende mouw. Kan iemand mij hier mee helpen?

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 19:41:

Hallo Thiron, Helaas kan ik vanaf hier niet goed zien hoe het eruit ziet en wat er gebeurt waardoor het een opstaande rand wordt. Misschien is het nodig om een kleinere haaknaald te gebruiken. Voor hulp kun je ook altijd naar de winkel gaan waar je het garen gekocht hebt.

Dominique 31.05.2016 - 08:34:

Bonjour, ce modèle est vraiment très beau. cependant j'ai des doutes quand aux dimensions au fur et à mesure de l'ouvrage. en effet en respectant à la lettre les explications - diagrame représentant les rangs endroit donc par exemple diagramme m4a 10 rgs représentés = au total 20 rgs - j'ai un ouvrage qui fait beaucoup plus que les 32 cm indiqués j'ai peur qu'au final mon tricot soit largement trop grand. est-ce normal merci

DROPS Design 31.05.2016 kl. 09:00:

Bonjour Dominique, les diagrammes montrent tous les rangs des diagrammes, c'est-à-dire ceux sur l'endroit ainsi que ceux sur l'envers, mais vus sur l'endroit (ex. une case blanche = 1 m jersey end à tricoter à l'end sur l'end et à l'env sur l'env), ainsi M.4 se tricote sur 10 rangs et non 20 - voir également ici. Bon tricot!

Ingrid 02.05.2016 - 09:36:

Bij het minderen in de mouw staat beschreven minder in 9e, 6e, 3e, 3e naald hetgeen een vermindering van 8 steken betekent. Ik houd dus 74 (82 - 8) over en niet de 66 die beschreven staan voor een maat S/M. Kan iemand me hiermee helpen?

DROPS Design 10.05.2016 kl. 15:57:

Hoi Ingrid. Er staat in het patroon: Herhaal dit minderen elke 6e nld in totaal 8 keer. Je mindert aan iedere kant = 2 st minder per keer = 16 st = 66 st over.

Byn 25.02.2016 - 18:43:

Tusen tack! Då var det som jag antog men jag får lov att öva på att sticka snyggt! =0)

Nyn 24.02.2016 - 18:17:

Hej! Tack, jag förstår hur varje enskilt diagram ska läsas. Frågan gäller hur dessa, dvs *M4.A, M.4B* som ska upprepas 3 ggr och sedan M4.A en gång till, ska kombineras när du har 80 maskor på Stickan. Video är bra men jag skulle verkligen uppskatta om ni kunde svara på frågan jag ställde! Tack så mycket!

DROPS Design 25.02.2016 kl. 16:00:

Du stickar 2 kantm, M.4A(13m)+M.4B(8m) = 21m x 3 = 63m, sedan M.4A (13m), 2 kantm. 2+21+21+21+13+2 = 80 m.

Nyn 23.02.2016 - 21:22:

2 rätst kantm, *M.4A, M.4B*, upprepa *-* totalt 3-4 ggr, sedan M4.A en gång till, 2 rätst kantm. På bilden står det M4A+M4B. Är det från rätsidan så att första nedersta raden på M.4A med start från höger (13 m) ska stickas 3 ggr om man läser nedifrån och upp för strl 80 m och därefter på motsvarande sett M.4B (8 m) 3ggr och slutligen M4.A en gång till (13 m). Eller är det M.4A+M.4B, dvs först nedersta raden på M.4A från höger och sedan nedersta raden på M.4B?

DROPS Design 24.02.2016 kl. 15:16:

Hej, Se videon så ser du hur man följer diagrammet:

Kelly 31.01.2016 - 23:55:

Kan ik deze bolero ook met lange mouwen maken?

DROPS Design 01.02.2016 kl. 15:40:

Hoi Kelly. Ja, dat lijkt me goed mogelijk. Ik zou dan het gedeelte met patroon M.1 langer breien.

Kristina Holmberg 20.12.2015 - 15:49:

Hej! Jag har nu stickat de första 35 cm på boleron och undrar... När ni skriver att jag ska göra en hel rapport M4A, hur menar ni då? Ska jag fortsätta med kantmaskorna och sedan endast sticka M4A resten av varven eller vaddå? Tacksam för svar! Kristina

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 13:49:

Hej Kristina, Du stickar M.4A&B enligt mönstret, men du ser till att avsluta efter en hel rapport av M.4A i höjden. Lycka till!
