Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc on every row with 3 ch.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 - NOTE: The first row with sc is not in the repetition and is NOT repeated upwards.
--------------------------------------------------------

BOLERO:
Worked from mid back. First work one side and down to beg of sleeve, then work the other side and down to the other sleeve. Then sew the sleeve seams and work 1 flounce around the entire opening.

FIRST SIDE:
Ch 82-90-98 LOOSELY with Cotton Viscose on hook size 3 mm / C – it is VERY important that this ch-row is not too tight. Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in every ch the entire row = 81-89-97 sc. Continue pattern A.1 as follows: Diagram a over the first 9 sc, diagram b until 8 sc remain, then diagram c over these (= 10-11-12 repetitions in total on row). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Repeat the 4 rows in diagram A.1 upwards until piece measures approx. 32-35-39 cm / 12½"-13 3/4"-15 1/4"'' – finish after 4th row in diagram.
Continue to work a finishing border as follows:
ROW 1: ch 4, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in ch between the 4 dc, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row, finish with ch 4, 1 sc in last ch-space, 3 ch and 1 sc in last dc, turn piece.
ROW 2: Work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc + 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch) + 1 sc. Fasten off.

SECOND SIDE:
Work along the other side of sc row made at the beg of first side (i.e. mid back) – beg with 1st row in A.1 and work as first side.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the bolero double across and sew tog from bottom of each sleeve and approx. 10 cm / 4'' up in each side – sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

FLOUNCE AROUND OPENING:
Work around the entire opening as follows (beg mid back):
ROUND 1: 1 sc in first dc, * ch 3, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 2: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 3: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 4: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 5: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 6: Work as follows in every ch-space: 2 sc + 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in first ch) + 2 sc. Fasten off.

Hvis man gerne vil have lidt længere ærmer, kan man så bare hækle stykkerne længere end de anbefalede 32-35-39 cm? Og så sy tilsvarende lidt længe end 10 cm sammen i hver side?

Ja det bør gå fint :)

Julie 07.03.2017 - 00:10:

Am I supposed to be measuring in inches or centimeters? Because, either way, this thing is going to be huge. It does not look that big in the picture. What am I doing wrong. My stitches are to gauge

DROPS Design 07.03.2017 kl. 09:03:

Dear Julie, measurements in chart are all in cm - if you like to get all measurements in written pattern in inches, change language to US-English, ie here. Happy crocheting!

Ya lo he terminado! Me ha quedado muy bonito. Aunque en la terminación del hueco grande (el último paso) lo he tenido que modificar un poco, en concreto el comienzo y final de cada vuelta, porque creo que faltan cadenetas. Salvo eso, muy contenta con el resultado

Mullier 01.08.2015 - 23:34:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas où je dois piquer pour la 2ème partie le long des mailles serrées de départ. Dois-je piquer dans la maille chaînette ou au pied ( dans le même trou) que les brides de départ ? je vois très mal sur les photos même en grossissant, dommage. Je ne vois pas votre rang de mailles serrées, je crois que vous avez démarré directement sur les mailles chaînettes. Pourriez-vous m'envoyer une photo du milieu dos plus nette. Merci et bien cordialement. Michèle

DROPS Design 03.08.2015 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Mme Mullier, le 1er rang du 2ème côté se crochète directement dans l'autre côté de la chaînette de base, dans les ml où les ms ont été crochetées au 1er rang du 1er côté, en commençant directement par le 1er rang de A.1. Bon crochet!

GIBTBES EINE VIDEOANLEITUNG AUF YOUTUBE UND WENN WO ZU FINDEN. Danke LG Erika Ferber

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 13:26:

Wozu genau benötigen Sie eine Videoanleitung, zum ganzen Bolero? Die haben wir leider nicht zu bieten, nur zu den einzelnen Maschenarten, im Kopf unter Videos zu finden.

Erika Ferber 25.07.2015 - 09:23:

Kann mir die Passform für die arme nicht vorstellen denn ich habeetwas dickere arme kann ich diese evtl. Etwas weiter häkeln? LG Erika Ferber

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 13:29:

In der Maßskizze sehen Sie die Breite, 33 cm für Größe S/M, 37 cm für Größe L/XL und 40 cm für Größe XXL/XXXL. Dies entspricht dem Ärmelumfang, da Sie den Bolero am Ende längs falten und ab den Ärmelrändern zusammennähen.

Wie weit muss ich die zweite Seite häkeln und wie falte ich es genau

DROPS Design 20.07.2015 kl. 13:04:

Sie häkeln die zweite Seite ebenso lang wie die erste, die beiden Seiten müssen von der Länge her identisch sein. Dann falten Sie das Teil der Länge nach. Also nicht an der gestrichelten Linie in der Skizze (das ist ja die Anschlags-Lm-R, von der aus Sie in beide Richtungen häkeln), sondern in der um 90 Grad gedrehten Richtung, also quasi an einer Linie, die den Pfeilen entspricht, die in der Skizze eingezeichnet sind.

Leïla 01.07.2015 - 20:39:

Bonjour, j'ai un peu de problème au niveau de l'assemblage. Lorsque vous parlez de plier en double dans le sens de la longueur, dois-je plier le travailler en deux ou à une certaine distance du bord? Je ne vois pas du tout comment cela fonctionne. Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 02.07.2015 kl. 09:56:

Bonjour Leila, vous avez obtenu un long rectangle (cf schéma en bas de page), pliez ce rectangle en double (= 2 parties égales) au milieu dans le sens de la longueur (hauteur dans le schéma = au milieu de la chaînette de base et des rangs) et faites la couture de chaque côté (en haut et en bas sur le schéma) en assemblant les fins/débuts de rangs entre eux, à partir du dernier rang crocheté en remontant vers le milieu du rectangle, sur environ 10 cm. Bon assemblage!

Before the pattern instructions there is a note : "Replace first dc on every row with 3 ch. " What does that mean? I can't see anything that needs replacing.

DROPS Design 02.03.2015 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Girgin, when you are working in dc following pattern, the first dc at the beg of every row will be replaced by 3 ch, see A.1a (at the right side, seen from RS) and A.1c (at the left side, starting rows from WS). Happy crocheting!

Hoi Wil. Ik heb het patroon nogmaals bekeken en het is niet fout. Er wordt een soort ruchesrand om de mouwen gehaakt, maar het staat in het patroon: Ga verder en haak een afwerkrand als volgt: TOER 1: 4 l, 1 v in de eerste l-lus, * 4 l, 1 v in de volgende l-lus, 4 l, 1 v in l tussen de 4 stk, 4 l, 1 v in de volgende l-lus *, herhaal van *-* de hele toer, eindig met 4 l, 1 v in laatste l-lus, 3 l en 1 v in laatste stk, keer het werk.
