1 square measures approx. 6.5 x 6.5 cm.

Work 12-14-15-20-21 squares of every colour combination, work in addition 0-2-2-8-8 extra squares (choose your own colour combination on these squares) = 120-142-152-208-218 squares in total.

SLEEVE GUSSET:
Work a piece with tr shaped as a gusset to be sewn under sleeve so it is wider at the top than the at bottom. Replace first tr on every row with 3 ch.
Work 7-8-8-8-8 ch on hook size 3 mm with off white. Turn and work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in the remaining 3-4-4-4-4 ch = 5-6-6-6-6 tr. Continue back and forth with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 10 cm.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE FINISHING!
On next row inc 1 tr in each side by working 2 tr in next to last tr in each side. Repeat inc every 3-2-2-2-2 rows a total of 9-12-12-12-12 times. NOTE: In size XS/S continue with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 33 cm. In sizes M and XXL divide the piece in the middle when it measures 30 cm, then work each side separately with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 33 cm. In sizes L/XL and XXXL divide the piece in the middle when it measures 26 cm, then work each side separately, when inc is done, with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 33 cm.
The piece is divided in the 4 largest sizes because of dec for armholes. This is not done in the smallest size.
Work another sleeve gusset.

Place the squares tog for back and front piece as shown on diagram – you can choose in which order you want to put the squares. Distribute the remaining 40-40-40-60-60 squares for 2 sleeves, with 20-20-20-30-30 squares on each sleeve. In the 3 smallest sizes there should be 4 x 5 squares and in the 2 largest sizes there should be 6 x 5 squares - there are 5 squares vertically in all sizes. Sew the squares tog edge to edge with off white. Sew sleeve gusset to each side of squares on sleeves and sew sleeves in body – with the widest part of gusset in the bottom of armhole.
Then sew the side seams and shoulder seams the same way – NOTE: In sizes M and XXL there is 1 row with squares in the middle of each side under armhole, in sizes L/XL and XXXL there are 2 rows with squares in each side under armhole.

Work around the entire jacket with off white as follows (beg mid back of neck): 1 dc in 1 ch at the edge of 1 square, 3 ch and 2 tr in same ch, * 1 ch, 3 tr in next ch *, repeat from *-*. NOTE: In the corners faced inwards work as follows: 1 tr in last ch before corner, 1 tr in the corner and 1 tr in first ch after corner. In the corners faced outwards work as follows: 3 tr in ch-loop in the corner on square, 3 ch and 3 more tr in the same ch-loop.
In every corner at the top by neck also work a tie as follows: 3 tr in ch-loop in the corner on square, then work loose ch for approx. 28 cm, turn and work 1 dc in every ch on the way back, then 3 tr in the same ch-loop in the corner.

Work the same way at bottom around the sleeves – over the section between the squares work as follows: * 1 tr in each of the first 3 tr, 1 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-*.

Is the 4" square including the border color?

DROPS Design 23.08.2019 kl. 14:52:

Dear Mrs Segars, 1 square = 4 rounds and should measure 2½" x 2½". Happy knitting!

Beth Segars 22.08.2019 - 19:45:

I am using a C hook. three rows makes 2.5 inches not 4 rows.

DROPS Design 23.08.2019 kl. 09:05:

Dear Mrs Segars, Hook size is only a suggestion! If you have too many stitches on 10 cm = 4” switch to larger hook. If you have too few stitches on 10 cm = 4” switch to smaller hook. read more about tension here. Happy crocheting!

Anne-Li Richter 13.07.2019 - 16:27:

Hej igen, Min sista fråga - är det viktigt att det är En jämt antal i rutor som diagrammet visar? Jag har gjort större rutor (12x12 cm) och när jag omvandlar till strl XL blir det inte bra med jämt antal, jag hade behövt lägga till men då blir det ojämnt antal rutor? Hoppas du förstår hur jag menar :) Önskar en fin sommar.

DROPS Design 26.08.2019 kl. 11:11:

Hei Ann-Li. Det er et jevnt antall ruter for å få det likt på begge sider. Om du har gjort rutene større og må bruke at ujevnt antall ruter blir det ulikt på frem og baksiden. Mvh Drops design

Anne-Li Richter 11.07.2019 - 15:55:

Hej igen, tusen tack för ert snabba svar:) Hur ser mönstret ut för ärmar, finns det någonstans? Det är storlek XL jag skall göra. Jag är lite nybörjare så kanske dumma frågor.

DROPS Design 12.07.2019 kl. 08:28:

Hei Anne-Li. Det finnes ingen dumme spørsmål :) Etter at du har lagt opp ruter til for- og bakstykkene sitter du igjen med 40 ruter i størrelse L/XL - disse skal fordeles over 2 ermer. Det finnes ikke noe mønster for dette, bare forklaringen i teksten. Du har da altså 20 ruter til hver erme som fordeles slik at du har 4 ruter i bredden og 5 ruter i høyden. Du må også hekle 1 ermkile til hvert erme (som utgjør undersiden av ermene), og hekles for at ermet skal være videre øverste enn nederst. God fornøyelse

Anne-Li Richter 10.07.2019 - 21:32:

Jag skall göra koftan längre. För att jag skall räkna hur många rutor mer som skall göras. Men får inte kläm på vilket som är framsida resp baksida på koftan i diagrammet? Vh Anne-Li

DROPS Design 11.07.2019 kl. 12:51:

Hei Anne-Li. Diagrammene som er i 1 helt stykke (til venstre på en pc-skjerm) er bakstykket. Diagrammet som er delt i 2 er forstykkene på jakken. God fornøyelse

Hvis man ønsker at hækle den i ensfarvet. Hvor mange nøgler garn skal man så bruge? Summer patchwork by DROPS Design Hæklet DROPS jakke i ”Alpaca” med ¾-lange ærmer og bedstemorruder. Str S - XXXL

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:23:

Hei Jette. Det har vi dessverre ikke oversikt over. Men du kan se på andre heklede modeller i Alpaca for å få en ide om granmengde. søk på jakke og filtrer søket ditt med "hekle" og "Alpaca" så vil du få opp fler ensfargede modeller. God fornøyelse

Hvis man ønsker at hækle den i ensfarvet. Hvor mange nøgler garn skal man så bruge?

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:24:

Hei Jette. Se svar over :)

Merche 21.05.2019 - 09:26:

Como se hace para reducir en el ancho de la manga? Gracias

DROPS Design 25.05.2019 kl. 19:09:

Hola Merche. Para darle forma a la manga tenemos que trabajar una nesga (una pieza triangular para darle el ancho que necesita la manga). Esta pieza puede ser más ancha o más estrecha según el ancho que quieras de la manga.

Marisa Santomaso 29.04.2019 - 21:23:

Per favore mi dice come viene cucito allo scalfo il rinforzo manica nella parte divisa in due? Grazie

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 22:04:

Buongiorno Marisa. Deve cucirlo allo scalfo sul davanti e allo scalfo sul dietro. Buon lavoro!

Marisa Santomaso 29.04.2019 - 12:19:

La ringrazio della risposta. Preparo i due rinforzi manica, se avrò ancora problemi mi permetto di chiedere ancora. Buona giornata
