PICOT:
Ch 4, then work 1 dc in the first ch made.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 3 tr at the beg and end of row by working the first 4 or last 4 tr tog.
This is done as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (when dec at the beg of row, ch 3 instead of 4), work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through, work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through, work the last tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 5 loops on hook.

PATTERN – SLEEVE:
ROW 1: ch 4 (these replace 1 sc + 3 ch), skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr, * ch 3, skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Turn piece.
ROW 2: ch 4 (these replace first tr), then work 2 tr in every ch-space and 1 tr in every sc between ch-spaces, finish with 3 tr in last ch-space. Turn piece.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row until finished measurements.

Continue with explanation below front piece.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 21-24-28 ch-spaces. Continue as follows:
ROW 1: Crochet 1 tr in every sc (first tr is replaced with 4 ch) and 2 tr in every ch-space – AT THE SAME TIME work the first 4 and the last 4 tr on row tog - SEE DECREASE TIP! – i.e. 6 tr less on row every time 1st row is worked.
ROW 2: ch 4 (= 1 sc + 3 ch) up from first tr (i.e the 4 worked tog), * skip 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr, ch 3 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sc in last tr (i.e. the 4 worked tog).
Repeat 1st and 2nd row a total of 4-5-6 times (= approx. 13-17-20 cm / 5"-6 3/4"-8"). 13-14-16 ch-spaces remain at the edge of front piece. Cut the yarn.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work the same way as on left front piece over 21-24-28 ch-spaces in the right side.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth and sewn tog at the end.
With Paris ch 42-46-49 loosely (includes 4 ch to turn with) on hook size 6 mm / J/10 .
ROW 1: 1 tr in 5th ch from hook, 1 tr in each of the next 5-2-5 ch, * skip1 ch , 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 4 ch remain, skip 1 ch and work 1 tr in each of the last 3 ch = 34-37-40 tr. Turn piece.
Work 1 row with 1 tr in every tr (first tr is replaced with 4 ch). Continue with PATTERN for sleeve – see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 20 cm / 8'' (make sure that next row is 2nd row in pattern), inc 3 tr evenly. Repeat inc approx. every 8 cm / 3'' 3 more times = 46-49-52 tr in total on row. NOTE: Hold the piece up when measuring the sleeve length otherwise it will be to long when worn.
When piece measures approx. 49 cm / 19 1/4'' for all sizes (make sure that next row is 1st row in pattern), dec in each side for sleeve cap as follows: Work sl sts over the first 4 tr, then work ch-spaces as before until 3 tr remain, turn piece. On next row work the first 4 and the last 4 tr tog – SEE DECREASE TIP!
Repeat dec every other row 2 more times.
Cut the yarn, piece measures approx. 59 cm / 23 1/4'' in all sizes.
Sew sleeve seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

ASSEMBLY:
Work 1 round around the entire body as follows – beg mid back of neck with 1 sc in first ch-space. * 1 picot (= ch 4, 1 dc in first ch), skip approx. 1½ cm / ½'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* around the entire piece, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
Work the same way around the opening of the sleeves.
Sew sleeves in body - make sure that the sleeve caps are sewn in at the top of armhole, i.e. at the shortest distance between the armholes.

Angeline 17.02.2018 - 13:17:

I finished the left and right front but I made definitely an error with the armholes. Is there a video that shows me how to do the armholes for this pattern? This is the first time I made a vest as I am still learning. I wish I could upload a foto so you can see what I did wrong.

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 09:06:

Dear Angeline, you will find a tutorial with pictures showing how to crochet the armholes for this kind of pattern, it shows the standard technique to be able to apply to a lot of patterns. Happy crocheting!

Karen 05.08.2017 - 18:46:

After doing the decrease on the front panels first row then doing the chain 3, skip 2, sc on the second row do I put the last sc (finish with 1 sc in last treble (i.e. The 4 worked together) actually through the loops of the decrease or in the loop the decrease passes through???

DROPS Design 07.08.2017 kl. 11:53:

Dear Karen, the last sc will be crocheted in the first tr on previous row, ie the 4 tr crocheted tog. Happy crocheting!

Karen 28.07.2017 - 22:22:

I've got to round 20 on the l/xl size & im really stuck. I just can't figure out the: ch3 in 1st tr, skip 2, 1 sc in next tr after the initial combo. Where do I do the next ch3? I just can't make 63 ch-spaces!

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 09:38:

Dear Karen, work 3-ch-loops, ie *3 ch, skip 2 dtr, 1 sc in next dtr* and repeat from *-* around, you will have 63 3-ch-spaces with 1 sc between each ch-space. Happy crocheting!

Phia Van Mil 16.03.2017 - 16:42:

Ik moet aan de mouwen beginnen en daar staat in toer 1: na het eerste dstk in de 5e l vanaf de haak; 1 dstk in elk van de 5-2-5 l. moet ik dit lezen als 5 dstk, 2l oversl, 5dstk?

DROPS Design 17.03.2017 kl. 12:11:

Hoi Phia, De mouw is voor alle maten beschreven en 5-2-5 heeft betrekking op de verschillende maten, dus 5 voor S/M, 2 voor L/XL en 5 voor XXL/XXXL.

Chantelle 23.06.2016 - 13:22:

Hi, I want to use Elle premier cotton, which originally 3.5mm hook is needed. After reading your store calculation, I just want to make sure I understand it correctly. In order for me to get the gauge correct, do I need to use 2 strand with a 6mm? I also have t-shirt yarn, but I am not sure if it would be suitable. Thank you for a great pattern.

DROPS Design 23.06.2016 kl. 16:33:

Dear Mrs Chantelle, We are able to provide free patterns thanks to our yarns sold throughout the world. You will therefore understand that we can only recomand you to contact our DROPS Store (select your country scrolling down) for any further help & assistance. Thank you for your comprehension.

Celia Watkinson 13.06.2016 - 23:35:

Can you use any yarn category C yarn? I am considering brushed alpaca silk, would it work?

DROPS Design 14.06.2016 kl. 09:22:

Dear Mrs Watkinson, Brushed Alpaca Silk has a different texture so that it will have a different look read more here about alternative and remember your DROPS store will help you to choose the alternative matching your desire, even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Tracee Winstone 31.05.2015 - 17:20:

When starting the left front piece, do you start with ch 4,? Also would you start in the chain loops or the dc (to the right of the first of the 28 loops) Thanks

DROPS Design 01.06.2015 kl. 10:11:

Dear Mrs Winstone, when starting left front piece, work 1 dtr in every dc (replace 1st dc with 4 ch at beg of row) and 2 dtr in every ch-loop - you should have 28 ch-loops (larger size) for each front and 23 ch-loops unworked at top by neck + 23 ch-loops at the bottom edge, ie start in a dc. Happy crocheting!

Andrea R. 01.04.2015 - 18:22:

Hallo Drops Team .. Jetzt ist die Jacke fertig und ich find sie toll. Super Wolle, tolles Muster und die Mitte hat sich 'ausgehangen', nichts wellt sich mehr :) Auch gute Anleitung, fuer mich als Anfänger, gut zu verstehn. Ich werde def mehr mit Drops arbeiten .. Danke :)

Andrea R. 29.03.2015 - 03:21:

Hi..Ich Mag diese Jacke sehr. Leider wellt sich bei meiner die Mitte. Was mach ich falsch?

DROPS Design 29.03.2015 kl. 13:01:

Das ist etwas schwierig zu beantworten, ohne die Jacke zu sehen. Evtl. häkeln Sie die Luft-M-Bögen zu fest, oder zu locker? Die angegebene Maschenzahl haben Sie aber in jeder Runde erreicht? Und die Maschenprobe eingehalten? Das ist sehr wichtig. Sie können probieren, ob sich das Problem löst, wenn Sie die Jacke etwas dehnen, sofern sie sich nicht sehr stark wellt. Sie kann anschließend, nach Beendigung, angefeuchtet und in Form gezogen bzw. gespannt werden.

Karen Veldhuizen 02.03.2015 - 20:47:

Ik wil deze gaan haken met de Bomull Lin, heb het materiaal in huis, maar ik twijfel enorm over de maat. Met welke maat is S/M vergelijkbaar en met welke is L/XL vergelijkbaar?

DROPS Design 03.03.2015 kl. 13:26:

Hoi Karen. Kijk onderaan het patroon. Hier vind je de maattabel met alle afmetingen in cm. Vergelijk deze met je eigen afmetingen om de juiste maat te kiezen.
