ARMHOLE:
When square measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' x 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18", work as follows – adjust so that this is a round worked as 5th round: Work as before until first corner, work 2 dc, ch 4, 2 dc in the corner. Then ch until the middle of next side – ch 1 over every dc/ch until the middle dc, work 1 dc in the middle dc and work until the third corner as before, work until the middle of next side, then ch 1 over every dc/ch until the fourth corner, work 2 dc, ch 4, 2 dc in the corner and work until beg of round as before. On next round work as before, in ch-spaces for armholes work 1 dc in every ch.

Continue as before until square measures 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm x 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' x 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' (i.e. 21 cm / 8 1/4'' in all sizes from armhole), adjust so that last row is worked as 5th round. Cut the thread, now work back and forth between first and second corner. Work from the first corner as follows: 2 dc in ch-space in the corner, 1 dc in every dc/ch until second corner, 2 dc in ch-space in the corner. Turn and work back, continue pattern as on 5th and 6th round. Continue like this until 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'' have been worked back and forth (without inc), cut the thread.
Repeat on the other side, now work back and forth from third to fourth corner. Finally work a round with camel around the entire square, work 1 dc in every dc, in ch-space in every corner work 4 dc.

SLEEVE:

Ch 44-44-46-46-49-49 loosely (includes 4 ch to turn with) on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Nepal.

Is it possible to crochet this without the sleeves?

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 09:19:

Dear Mrs Albert, it's probably possible, you may like then to just crochet a small finishing edge around both armholes. Happy crocheting!

Gen Hart 16.03.2018 - 22:05:

Hello, I’m working on my first sleeve and not sure if I’m on the right track... This section here... “repeat inc every 6-5-5-4-4-3½ cm / 2 3/8"-2"-2"-1½"-1½"-1 1/4" 6-8-8-9-10-11 more times = 50-54-56-58-62-64 dc.” I’m making the second size so in need to increase every 5cm. My question is, do I crochet 5cm then increase the next row or increase on the row which makes 5cm? I hope I’m making sense! Thank you!

DROPS Design 17.03.2018 kl. 12:15:

Dear Gen, I would crochet 5 cm and increase in the next row. The next time start measuring from the row in which the increase was done. I hope this helps. Happy crocheting!

Karen 29.04.2016 - 15:00:

Jullie hebben ooit gezegd dat het haken tussen eerste en tweede hoek moest zijn in plaats van haken tussen tweede en derde hoek. Maar er is volgens mij nog iets blijven hangen van deze zin in het patroon : ==> Knip de draad af, haak nu heen en weer tussen de eerste en tweede hoek. Haak vanaf de eerste hoek als volgt: 2 stk in de l-lus in de hoek, 1 stk in elk stk/l tot de derde hoek Het voorlaatste woord moet tweede hoek zijn ipv derde hoek. Klopt ?

Adriana 25.04.2016 - 07:40:

I understand the sizes are S - M - L - XL - XXL - XXXL. But with knowing that, what size in inches would each size be?

DROPS Design 25.04.2016 kl. 10:32:

Dear Adriana, scrolling down the page, you can find a measurement chart, compare it with a similar garment you have, and you'll find the right size. Happy crocheting!

Ximena Gomez 09.04.2016 - 03:44:

Buenas tardes, estoy feliz por haberlos encontrado, estoy en el proceso del segundo proyecto y estoy encantada, pero ya tengo una pregunta: no me es muy clara la forma de hacer la manga, no entiendo esto de "hasta que resten 5-5-0-0-3-3 cadenetas...", me podrian ayudar con esto? Muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 10.04.2016 kl. 21:04:

Hola Ximena. Aquí quiere decir: " hasta que queden por trabajar 5-5-0-0-3-3 cadenetas en la fila". Cada número corresponde a una talla (S – M – L – XL – XXL – XXXL). Para que el trabajo sea más fácil marca los números que corresponden a la talla elegida antes de empezar la labor.

Hannelore 24.04.2015 - 20:46:

Und gibt es vielleicht ein Foto von diesem Abschnitt?

DROPS Design 03.05.2015 kl. 12:55:

Leider nein. In der Maßskizze ist der senkrechte Strich die Stelle, an der Sie statt des Musters die Lm häkeln (= Armausschnitt) und danach mit dem Muster wie zuvor weiterhäkeln.

Hannelore 24.04.2015 - 20:42:

Hallo, wenn ich die Lm Kette mit den Stb gehäkelt habe dann zählen diese doch zum Quadrat dazu,hab ich das richtig verstanden?Wenn ja wird dann das was für den Halsrand gedacht ist nicht zu lang?

DROPS Design 03.05.2015 kl. 12:53:

Mit der Lm-Kette überspringen Sie Maschen, die Lm kommen also nicht zusätzlich zum Quadrat hinzu, sondern sind die Methode, um einen "Schlitz" in das Quadrat für den jeweiligen Armausschnitt zu bekommen. Sie überspringen so viele M, wie Sie Lm häkeln, und häkeln dann wieder wie gehabt weiter.

Marion 10.02.2015 - 22:18:

Was bedeutet "schulternaht schliessen" - es wird doch außer den ärmeln alles im ganzen gehäkelt?

DROPS Design 12.02.2015 kl. 10:08:

Liebe Marion, das ist einfach nur ein Übersetzungsfehler gewesen, er wird gleich korrigiert. Es sind die Ärmelnähte gemeint. Vielen Dank für Ihren Hinweis und viel Spaß beim Tragen der Jacke!

Marion 31.01.2015 - 18:21:

Vielen herzlichen dank!

Marion 12.01.2015 - 09:33:

Nachtrag zu meiner frage: das wird sehr wellig wenn ich alle stb häkle
