SQUARE 8:
Work 1st to 3rd round as SQUARE 1. Then work the square tog with SQUARE 7 and SQUARE 4 the same way as SQUARE 7 was worked tog with SQUARE 6 and SQUARE 3.

Continue to work rows the same way as ROW 2 but make sure to switch the yarn types so that every square alternately has Safran and Cotton Viscose in the middle.
Work a total of 14-16-18-20-22-24 rows (i.e. 56-64-72-80-88-96 squares) - AT THE SAME TIME when working last row, work the squares tog in both the next to last row and the first row to form a circle.

CONTINUING BODY:
Then work front and back piece separately back and forth so that crochet pattern is the same the entire way.

FRONT PIECE:
READ CROCHET INFO.
Work with Safran on hook size 3.5 mm along 7-8-9-10-11-12 of the squares in one side. Work 3 tr in every ch-loop, i.e. 12 tr along every square = 84-96-108-120-132-144 tr in total on row. Then work PATTERN until finished measurements - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 26 cm in total, inc 1 st in each side by working 2 sts in next to last st. Repeat inc every 2-2-2-2½-2½-2½ cm a total of 4 times = 92-104-116-128-140-152 sts. When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm in total, dec for armholes on every row in each side: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 0-0-1-2-3-4 times, 2 sts 0-2-2-3-3-4 times and 1 st 2-3-4-4-5-4 times - SEE DECREASE TIP. = 80-82-86-88-92-96 sts remain. When piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm, dec for neck. This is done by no longer working over the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 sts (i.e. on 1st row only work over the 31-32-33-34-35-37 sts in the one side). Then dec towards the neck on every row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 4 times - SEE DECREASE TIP. After all dec are done, 22-23-24-25-26-28 sts remain on shoulder. Cut the threads when piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm. Work the other shoulder the same way.

BACK PIECE:
Work as front piece but do not dec for neck. Continue to work until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm, now work 2 cm over 22-23-24-25-26-28 sts on each shoulder before cutting the threads.

SLEEVE:
Work 4-4-4-5-5-5 squares – as on row 1 on body but in addition work first and last square tog to form a circle.
Then work tr along the one side of squares on hook size 3.5 mm with Safran as follows: 3 tr in each of the 2 small ch-loops on every square and 4 tr in every ch-loop in the corners (= 14 tr per square) = 56-56-56-70-70-70 tr in total. Continue with PATTERN back and forth as on body. When piece measures 10-10-8-8-8-8 cm, inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 2½-1½-1½-2-1½-1 cm a total of 9-12-14-10-12-16 times = 74-80-84-90-94-102 sts. When piece measures 32-31-30-29-27-26 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), dec for sleeve cap on every row in each side - SEE DECREASE TIP: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 2-3-4-6-8-9 times, then dec 2 sts in each side until piece measures 39 cm, then dec 3 sts 1 time in each side. Cut the threads, sleeve measures approx. 40 cm in all sizes.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew side and sleeve seams tog edge to edge in front loop of outermost sts. Sew in the sleeves.
Work at the bottom around the sleeves and around the body with Cotton Viscose as follows: 1 dc in first ch-loop, * 5 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* and finish with 5 ch and 1 sl st in first dc. Work the same way around the neck but then skip approx. 1 cm between every ch-loop.

Hallo! Ich bin nun beim Fertigstellen dieses schönen Pullis. Wie ist denn der allerletzte Satz in der Anleitung (bei: Zusammennähen) gemeint? "Rund um den Hals wiederholen jedoch zwischen jedem Lm-Bogen ca. 1cm überspringen." Heißt das, man soll nach jedem/ immer nach einem Zentimeter eine feste Masche stricken und dazwischen die 5 Lm? Danke für eine Antwort! Sara

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 07:44:

Liebe Sara, ja genau so wird die Kante gehäkelt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Barbara Lightfoot 04.06.2018 - 11:34:

Hi, I am not quite sure how to join the end of the bottom piece, when complete, to the front of itself? Before, we have been joining a square into an L shaped gap downwards, but now we must join two squares side by side together before one of them is complete, upwards?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 13:22:

Dear Mrs Lightfoot, on 2nd row with squares, crochet last round on 1st square together with the bottom square along only 1 side. When working next squares, crochet the last round on next square together with the side of the previous square on row 2, then along side of next square from previous row (= 2 sides are crocheted tog). When working last square on row, you crochet the last round to the previoius square on same row, to the next square on previous row and to the first square same row (= along 3 sides). Happy crocheting!

Hanaa Zahran 08.04.2018 - 10:47:

Hi, I will make this pattern and I want it a bit longer can u help me how to add rows in this pattern thank you for your help.

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 10:22:

Dear Mrs Zahran, we are unfortunately not able to adapt every single pattern to each individual request. For any further assistance you are welcome to contact the store where you bought the yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Annika Johansson 19.03.2018 - 15:57:

Hejsan! Alltså det här med att inte klippa av garnet vid färgbyte. Menar ni att den färgen man inte använder ska löpa med i arbetet varje varv? Räcker garnet då? Och i hålvarvet blir det inte särskilt snyggt, tycker jag. Tror att någon frågat ungefär samma på tyska. Tyvärr förstod jag inte riktigt svaret. Med vänlig hälsning, Annika

DROPS Design 20.03.2018 kl. 08:50:

Hej Annika, du drar inte tråden med runt, men upp till det varv den skall användas igen. Lycka till!

Rianne 19.02.2018 - 22:54:

Kan dit patroon ook helemaal van safran worden gemaakt?

DROPS Design 20.02.2018 kl. 16:35:

Hallo Rianne, Ja hoor, dat kan. Safran heeft ook een denimblauw; kleurnummer 06.

Mie 10.03.2016 - 12:49:

Hvor kan jeg se hvor mange nøgler garn jeg skal bruge?

DROPS Design 10.03.2016 kl. 13:36:

Hej Mie. Det staar i starten af mönstret: Materialer: DROPS SAFRAN fra Garnstudio 300-300-350-350-400-450 g f.nr 05, lys blålilla Og brug: DROPS COTTON VISCOSE fra Garnstudio 150-200-200-200-250-250 g f.nr 22, denim

Mie 10.03.2016 - 10:24:

Hvor kan jeg se hvor mange nøgler garn jeg skal bruge?

DROPS Design 10.03.2016 kl. 10:33:

Hej Mie, Du finder garnforbruget lige til højre for billedet der hvor der står Materialer. God fornøjelse!

Julischka 03.09.2015 - 17:14:

Eine Frage zum Muster: wenn man den Faden nicht abschneiden, sondern mitnehmen soll, gleichzeitig aber Farbwechsel nach ungerader Anzahl von Reihen durchfuehren soll, faengt man dann auf der gegenueberliegenden Seite mit der anderen Farbe an und haekelt rueckwaerts? Z.B: Reihe 3 in Cotton Viscose wuerde ja nach nur einer Reihe fester Maschen wieder gewechselt auf Safran, ohne die Farbe "zurueckzuholen". Den Faden "nach oben" mitnehmen kenne ich sonst nur nach gerade Anzahl von Reihen.

DROPS Design 08.09.2015 kl. 11:10:

Sie können das selbst entscheiden, wie Sie vorgehen möchten: Entweder häkeln Sie ganz regelmäßig abwechselnd in Hin- und Rück-R und schneiden den Faden dann bei Bedarf ab, oder Sie häkeln so, wie es sich anhand der hängen gelassenen Fäden ergibt. Denn Sie können ja auch einfach 2 x in dieselbe Richtung häkeln, also z.B. 2 Hin-R nacheinander. Probieren Sie an einem kleinen Probestück aus, was Ihnen besser gefällt.

NinaT 18.06.2014 - 04:22:

Is there a way to know how many rows are in a 4" gauge swatch?

DROPS Design 18.06.2014 kl. 08:49:

Dear NinaT, most important to that pattern is to get 22 sts in pattern = 4" and 1 square = 2½" x 2½". Measurements in height will be adjusted by inches, not by number of rows. Happy crocheting!

Louise 24.02.2014 - 08:58:

Hjælp: Når jeg skal lave udtagninger til ærmer, så står der kun hvor mange gange, de første 4 udtagninger skal gentages, men ikke de andre gange. Kan i hjælpe mig her?

DROPS Design 04.03.2014 kl. 19:22:

Hej Louise, vi er ikke helt säker på vad du mener. På ermen står att du øker 1 m i hver side, og så gjenta økningen på hver 2½.-1½.-1½.-2.-1½.-1.cm totalt 9-12-14-10-12-16 ganger.
