Continue with explanation below front piece further down in pattern.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 17-19-22 ch-spaces. Continue as follows:
ROW 1: Work 1 dc in every sc (first dc is replaced by ch 3) and 3 dc in every ch-space – AT THE SAME TIME work the first 5 and last 5 dc on row tog - SEE DECREASE TIP 1 – (i.e. there are 8 dc less on row every time 1st row is worked) = 61-69-81 dc on row.
ROW 2: ch 5 (= 1 sc + 4 ch) up from first dc (i.e. the 5 dc worked tog), * skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 4 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sc in last dc (i.e. in the 5 dc worked tog) = 15-17-20 ch-spaces on row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 a total of 4-4-5 times, (= approx. 8-8-10 cm / 3"-3"-4"). 9-11-12 ch-spaces remain at the edge of front piece. Fasten off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work same way as on left front piece over 17-19-22 ch-spaces in the right side.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth and sewn tog afterwards.
Chain 30-34-37 loosely (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Paris.
ROW 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of the next 5-2-5 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the rest of the row = 25-28-31 dc. Turn piece.
Work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc - first dc is replaced by ch 3. Then work PATTERN for sleeve - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 10 cm / 4'' (make sure that next row is 2nd row in pattern), inc 3 dc evenly. Repeat inc approx. every 8-10-12 cm / 3"-4"-4 3/4" 2 more times = 34-37-40 dc in total on row. NOTE: Hold the piece up when measuring the sleeve length otherwise the sleeve will be too long when worn. When piece measures approx. 29-35-40 cm / 11½"-13 3/4"-15 3/4" (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 dc, then work ch-spaces as before (work first ch-space up from 4th sl st made) until 3 dc remain, turn piece. On next row, work the first 4 and last 4 dc tog – SEE DECREASE TIP 2. Repeat dec every other row 3 more times. Fasten off, piece measures approx. 37-43-48 cm / 14½"-17"-19". 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 bottom opening of the sleeves.
Sew sleeves in body - make sure that sleeve cap is sewn in at the top of armholes, i.e. where the distance is shortest.

Work a ch-row with approx. 50 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Paris. Fasten off, this is used to close the jacket mid front.

Hallo, meine Enkelin ist 2 Jahre, Gr.86/92. Ich habe erst die Anleitung für 3- 5 Jahre gehäkelt, viel zu klein! Dann 6- 9 Jahre, immer noch zu knapp. Was mach ich falsch, Maschen stimmen? Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 31.05.2019 kl. 13:38:

Liebe Frau Lehmann, stimmt auch Ihre Maschenprobe? Sie sollen 13 Stb x 10 Rd im Ärmelmuster = 10 x 10 cm haben. Die Angabe der Nadelstärke ist nur eine Orientierungshilfe. Wenn für 10 cm mehr Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigt werden, zu einer dickeren Nadelstärke wechseln. Wenn für 10 cm weniger Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigt werden, zu einer dünneren Nadelstärke wechseln. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Shirley White 30.05.2019 - 23:39:

I am trying to work Round 14 of 6/9 years old Lovely Lily jacket and am completely confused when it comes to ch-space fored for armhole.....Is there a video that would show me what to do. Any type of diagram or instruction would be most appreciated. Thank you.

DROPS Design 31.05.2019 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs White, on this round you will now work in pattern as before to the end of the round, ie between the ch-spaces for armholes and in the both chain-spaces for each armhole = * ch 1, 5 dc in ch-space *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total in each ch-space, and work 1 ch, 5 dc over the ch-spaces before/between/after the chain-spaces for the armholes = at the end of this round there are 24 groups of 5 dc with 1 ch between each dc-group. Happy crocheting!

Nancy 30.03.2019 - 03:13:

Hello, I have yet another question, I’m so confused, The section for finishing the sleeves, pattern states to dec in each side for sleeve cap as follows: Work sl sts over the first 4 tr, then work ch-spaces as before (work first 4 work first ch-space up from 4th sl st made) until 3 tr remain, turn piece Please help me Does that mean sl st 4 then ch 3 repeat until I reach the last 3 tr?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 11:55:

Dear Nancy, on this row, decrease as shown in this video (crochet only 1 sl st in each of the first tr at the beg of the row and stop when 3 treble remains at the end of the row before turning, then decrease as explained under DECREASE TIP-2. Happy crocheting!

Nancy 26.03.2019 - 05:40:

Hello, I’m a novice, self taught, your patterns and yarn are beautiful, I can’t gigure out body 3/5 yr old round 11, it instructs is to chain 5 then sc in next, repeat 6 times, so does that mean to chain 5 then sc in 4th chain (chain right under 5th) then it says there should be 23 chains, then it says to skip 4 dc groups, 10 times, i only count 6 times...are there any pictures that may help me...if not will you please help me

DROPS Design 26.03.2019 kl. 09:24:

Dear Nancy, you now crochet same pattern as round 9 but you will now crochet 5 chains instead of 4 chains and at the same time, you will create armholes by skipping 4 tr-groups replaced by 23 chains a total of 2 times (as explained for this round). On next round, you will continue in pattern working in the 5-ch-spaces and in the 23 chains for armholes. Happy crocheting!

Nancy 26.03.2019 - 05:38:

Hello, I’m a novice, self taught, your patterns and yarn are beautiful, This is my first time trying patterns, I can’t gigure out body 3/5 yr old round 11, it instructs is to chain 5 then sc in next, repeat 6 times, so does that mean to chain 5 then sc in 4th chain (chain right under 5th) then it says there should be 23 chains, then it says to skip 4 dc groups, 10 times, i only count 6 times...are there any pictures that may help me...if not will you please help me

Caroline 04.02.2019 - 15:52:

Round 12 at arm holes. I dont understand. Please can you make it a little clearer what to do. Thankyou

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 17:09:

Dear Caroline, on round 11 you skipped 4 tr-groups replaced by 23 chains for the armholes, ie a total of 2 times. On round 12, continue with same pattern as before, working in the chains for armhole as before (= 5 tr, skip 1 ch) a total of 4 times. Happy crocheting!

Mary 28.12.2018 - 21:29:

I am wondering what the meaning of ‘Paris’ is?

DROPS Design 28.12.2018 kl. 23:12:

Dear Mary, Paris is the nane of the yarn used for this pattern, made of 100% cotton. Happy crafting!

Julie Plamondon 19.12.2018 - 15:16:

Bonjour! Comment une seule chaîne finale de 50 mailles sert-elle à fermer le chandail? Merci!

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 08:04:

Bonjour Mme Plamondon, vous passez la chaînette entre les mailles de la bordure des deux devants et vous faites une boucle pour attacher les deux devants. Bon crochet!

Jillian 15.07.2018 - 18:02:

Hi Thank you for your amazing patterns. I have a request to make the same pattern for an adult. Can I use the same pattern and if so how do I go about it. If not do you have a similar pattern for adults Thank you

DROPS Design 16.07.2018 kl. 09:13:

Dear Jillian, you will find here the adult version to this jacket - UK-crochet terminology, please change language under the picture if you require US-crochet terminology. Happy crocheting!

M J MATTHEWS 15.02.2018 - 03:18:

Need help Round19. Size 3/5.. can't get right number ch-spaces. Always too many, tried three times. Can I just insert six more ch4-sc spaced equally around the circle?

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 09:36:

Dear Mrs Matthews, make sure you have 162 sts at the end of round 18, then repeat (4 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc) a total of 54 times all the round = 54 ch-spaces over the 162 dc. Happy crocheting!
