JACKET:
Work 2 large granny squares for front piece which are then lengthened for back piece. Work 4 squares for sleeves which are lengthened before working 2 and 2 tog on overarm. Finally work yoke upwards with tr-groups back and forth before working all parts tog.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE + BACK PIECE:
Crochet 6 ch on hook size 4 mm with 1 thread brown Fabel and 1 thread dark brown Kid-Silk (= 2 threads) and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 3 ch (= 1 tr), 2 tr in ch-ring, 3 ch, * 3 tr in ch-ring, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round, turn piece (= 4 tr-groups with 3 ch between each).
Then work STRIPES BODY – see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME continue in the round as explained below.
ROUND 2: 3 ch (= 1 tr), 2 tr in first ch-loop, 3 ch, 3 tr in same ch-loop, * 1 ch, 3 tr in next ch-loop, 3 ch, 3 tr in same ch-loop *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round, turn piece.
ROUND 3: 3 ch (= 1 tr), 2 tr in first ch-loop, 1 ch, * 3 tr in next ch-loop, 3 ch, 3 tr in same ch-loop, 1 ch, 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, 3 tr in next ch-loop, 3 ch, 3 tr in same ch-loop, 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round, turn piece.
Continue in the round like this (on every round worked there is 1 tr-group more between every corner) until square measures approx. 36-38-38-40-40-42 cm along each side (= approx. 18-19-19-20-20-21 rounds in the round). Cut and fasten the threads.
Now lengthen the square and work tr-groups back and forth along one side of the square as follows (continue STRIPES BODY as before - adjust so that when 1 row remains until finished measurements, work last row with 1 thread black Fabel + 1 thread dark brown Kid Silk):
ROW 1: 1 sl st in ch-loop in the corner on square, 4 ch (= 1 tr + 1 ch), * 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until last ch-loop (= corner) and finish with 3 tr in ch-loop in the corner, turn piece.
ROW 2: 4 ch (= 1 tr + 1 ch), * 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until last ch-loop and finish with 3 tr in last ch-loop.
Repeat 2nd row until square measures approx. 24-27-31-36-42-47 cm from the centre and outwards (i.e. 42-46-50-56-62-68 cm from one side to the other side measured at the widest). Cut and fasten the threads.

LEFT FRONT PIECE + BACK PIECE:
Work as right part.

Work the 2 squares tog mid back so that rows worked back and forth are against each other - see illustration A.1. Work with 1 thread black Fabel + 1 thread dark brown Kid-Silk as follows: 1 dc in outermost tr in the corner on one square, 1 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on the other square, * 3 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop on first square, 1 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop on the other square *, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 ch, 1 dc in tr on first square, 1 ch and 1 sl st in tr on the other square.

SLEEVE:
Beg as on right front piece but from and with 2nd round work STRIPES SLEEVE – see explanation above. When 1 round remains before square measures 18-18-20-20-22-22 cm, work last round with 1 thread black Fabel + 1 thread dark brown Kid-Silk. Then work back and forth along one side on the square the same way as on back piece (continue stripes as before - adjust so that when 1 row remains until finished measurements, work last row with 1 thread black Fabel + 1 thread dark brown Kid Silk). When square measures 24-24-26-26-28-28 cm at the widest, cut and fasten the thread. Sleeve at the front is now done. Work another part the same way (= sleeve at the back). Then work the 2 squares tog on overarm as shown in illustration A.2 – work them tog the same way as piece was worked tog mid back.

Work 2 squares with lengthening the same way for the other sleeve and work them tog on overarm as explained above.

BACK PIECE:
Insert 1 marker in the middle of one front piece so that there are 21-23-25-28-31-34 cm from mid back until marker and 21-23-25-28-31-34 cm from marker mid front – insert marker between 2 tr-groups. Insert another marker on the other front piece. There are now approx. 42-46-50-56-62-68 cm between the 2 markers on back piece and approx. 21-23-25-28-31-34 tr-groups between markers. Then work tr-groups back and forth between the 2 markers at the back with 1 thread Delight + 1 thread dark brown Kid-Silk (= 2 threads – NOTE: Work with these 2 threads until finished measurements) as follows: 1 sl st in ch-loop between 2 tr-groups, 4 ch (= 1 tr + 1 ch), * 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 tr in ch-loop at the marker, turn piece.
Work next row as follows: 4 ch (= 1 tr + 1 ch), * 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 tr in last ch-loop, turn piece. Work back and forth like this until 2 rows remain before piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from bottom edge and up (i.e. piece measures approx. 22-22-24-24-26-26 cm from where back piece beg). Now work 2 rows with tr-groups back and forth over the outermost 16-18-20-22-24-26 cm on one shoulder (i.e. over approx. 8-9-10-11-12-13 tr-groups). Cut the thread and work 2 rows with tr-groups over the outermost 16-18-20-22-24-26 cm on the other shoulder (make sure to work the same no of tr-groups on both shoulders = approx. 5-5-5-6-7-8 tr-groups mid back of neck). Piece measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder to bottom edge and 24-24-26-26-28-28 cm from the shoulder and down to where back piece beg.

When front piece is the same length as back piece, work neck edge with tr-groups back and forth over the other tr-groups mid front (do not work over tr-groups on shoulder and make sure that same no of tr-groups have been worked on the shoulder at the front and back). Work back and forth until neck edge measures approx. 7-7-7-8-9-10 cm, cut and fasten the thread.

Uhm, I can't download this. I do this everyday and it's not my fault.

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 08:59:

Dear Connie, our pattern can only be print, but you can use a virtual printer to save them as a .PDF file. Happy crocheting!

Dalene 06.07.2018 - 16:08:

Is the neck edge (yoke) worked as one piece (i.e. from mid-front A around the neck to mid-front B)?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 07:34:

Dear Dalene, back and each front pieces are worked separately from armholes to shoulders. Shawl collar is shaped working over the outermost sts towards front edge remaining after sts for shoulders. Happy crocheting!

Susan Sullivan 15.04.2018 - 22:37:

I love this pattern and possibly will be leading my crochet class through the construction as a class project. I have a suggestion that I think would help everyone a lot. If you would show additional shots of the garment - from the back - and then some detail shots of the areas like the armhole, seaming, neckline - the places where people always ask questions - it would so helpful. Thank you for all that you are now doing - your designs are lovely!

Canadinhas 16.09.2017 - 17:50:

Bonjour, ça fait combien de pelotes en tout car je voudrais le faire uni....? merci!

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Mme Canadinhas, en fonction de la qualité choisie, vous pourrez recalculer ici la quantité nécessaire pour votre taille. Bon crochet!

Schitterend vest.Jammer dat er geen foto van de achterkant bij zit.

Ulrika Dukic 01.03.2015 - 19:01:

Underbar kofta. om man bara vill använda en tråd när man virkar, vilket garn kan ni rekommendera då?

DROPS Design 03.03.2015 kl. 14:00:

Hej Ulrika. Du kan erstatte med 1 traad garn fra gruppe B. Se oversigt her Vi har her desvaerre ikke et garn med den flotte print som du har fra Delight.

Ina Zeller-Dawen 14.12.2014 - 14:17:

Wie soll man die Jacke waschen? Für Delight und Fabel ist Maschinenwäsche (Woll- oder Feinwäsche) bei 40 °C empfohlen, für Kid Silk dagegen Handwäsche bei maximal 30 °C.

DROPS Design 15.12.2014 kl. 14:34:

Sie waschen die Kleidungsstücke aus verschiedenen Garnen immer so, wie es das empfindlichste erlaubt - also in diesem Fall Kid-Silk. Waschen Sie die Jacke also vorsichtig von Hand, damit die Flauschigkeit von Kid-Silk nicht leidet.

Ena Hume 15.09.2014 - 09:00:

I am finding the section relating to the right and left front and collar instructions very confusing. Please supply me with either a clear diagram of how the collar should be done or clear instructions to crochet same. many thanks ena hume

DROPS Design 15.09.2014 kl. 09:58:

Dear Mrs Hume, you are free to ask here the part you don't understand, and feel free to contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Antonella 11.11.2013 - 15:04:

Quello chenon capisco è la fine del girocollo dei due davanti (destro e sinistro). precisamente il bordo del collo dopo aver lavorato la misura necessaria e uguale a quella del dietro. Grazie Antonella

DROPS Design 11.11.2013 kl. 16:13:

Buongiorno Antonella, quando i due davanti raggiungono la lunghezza del dietro, deve lavorare a gruppi di m.a sugli altri gruppi di m.a al centro davanti, tralasciando i gruppi di m.a sulle spalle e assicurandosi di avere lo stesso n° di gruppi di m.a sulla spalla davanti e dietro. Ci riscriva se ha ancora bisogno. Buon lavoro!

Antonella 09.11.2013 - 20:58:

Si possono avere delle spiegazioni per la taglia m , degli schemi e delle foto anche del dietro più chiare? grazie

DROPS Design 10.11.2013 kl. 18:09:

Buonasera Antonella, le foto dei modelli sono solo quelle presenti sul sito, e anche le spiegazioni sono molto dettagliate; se ci illustra meglio qual è il suo problema possiamo cercare di aiutarla, altrimenti può mandare un mail a italy@garnstudio.com spiegando il problema. Buon lavoro!
