Cut the thread.

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 *-*.

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS 147-9) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

We have also step-by-step guides for different techniques which you'll find here.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

Click here to see our yarn converter

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

Sanne 26.10.2019 - 14:04:

Maat M en XXL: splits het werk in het midden als het 30 cm meet, haak dan elke kant apart verder met 1 stk in elk stk tot het werk 33 cm meet. Ik snap dit niet zo goed. Kunt u mij hierover meer uitleg geven?

DROPS Design 27.10.2019 kl. 16:09:

Dag Sanne,

Als het goed is heb je na het meerderen van stokjes in totaal 30 stokjes op de toer. Je splitst het werk nu bij een hoogte van 30 cm in tweeën door eerst steeds heen en weer te haken over de eerste 15 steken tot het werk 33 cm meet. Dan hecht je de draad aan over het tweede deel en haak je ook weer heen en weer over die 15 steken tot het werk 33 cm meet.

Caterina Orefice 23.09.2019 - 09:52:

Non riesco a capire per il rinforzo manica taglia M cosa si intende per "dividere il lavoro al centro e proseguire separatamente", immagino che, arrivata a 30 centimetri debbo continuare lavorando con due capi in modo da avere due striscioline da 15 maglie ognuna per 3 centimetri, ma poi non capisco queste due strisce dove debbo cucirle. forse sarebbe utile una foto. grazie per la risposta

DROPS Design 23.09.2019 kl. 10:11:

Buongiorno Caterina. Il rinforzo viene cucito nel sottomanica. Le due parti separate vanno cucite allo scalfo sul davanti e allo scalfo sul dietro. Buon lavoro!

Beth Segars 23.08.2019 - 14:01:

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
