At beg of a new row replace 1 dc with 3 ch.

See diagrams A.1-A.5.

Beg and end at arrow in the middle of diagram A.x

Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

Worked back and forth.
Work 83-90-100-107-121-132 loose ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Cotton Light.
ROW 1: Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), then work 1 dc in each of the next 2-2-5-5-5-2 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12-13-15-17 more times = 70-76-85-91-103-112 dc.
Then work 5-5-5-4-5-5 more rows with 1 dc in every dc (= 6-6-6-5-6-6 rows in total with dc) – READ CROCHET INFO. Continue with PATTERN as follows: Work A.1 over 4 dc, A.2 until 3 dc remain, A.3 over the remaining 3 dc from previous row. Continue with diagrams A.1 – A.3 back and forth for 8 rows, there are now 8 holes diagonally in height (= first stripe with lace pattern), and 1 row with dc's. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Then continue with stripes in dc and lace pattern the same way but work according to diagram A.x, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 32-32-32-40-41-41 cm / 12½"-12½"-12½"-15 3/4"-16"-16" and when working a section with dc, insert a marker in each side for armholes. Continue with pattern as before. When piece measures 49-50-51-60-62-63 cm / 19 1/4"-19 3/4"-20"-23½"-24½"-24 3/4", beg neck dec and finish each shoulder separately as follows from RS: Work 1 row with dc over the first 21-24-27-30-36-39 dc, turn piece and dec 1 dc – READ DECREASE TIP. Work the rest of row. When piece measures 51-52-53-62-64-65 cm / 20"-20½"-21"-24½"-25 1/4"-25½", back piece is finished. Fasten off. Work the other shoulder the same way but reversed.

Work as back piece. When piece measures 43-43-43-53-54-54 cm / 17"-17"-17"-21"-21 1/4"-21 1/4", beg neck dec and work each shoulder separately.
Work left shoulder as follows from RS:
Work ch-spaces as before (with 2 dc between every sc on first row with ch-spaces) over the first 27-30-33-36-42-45 dc, AT THE SAME TIME dec for neck by dec 1 ch-space in lace pattern according to pattern A.4.
Continue like this back and forth until A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically. On next row work 4 dc in first ch-space, 3 dc in each of the next ch-spaces until 1 ch-space remains, and 4 dc in last ch-space on row = 20-23-26-29-35-38 dc remain for shoulder. Then continue with 1 dc in every dc. When piece measures 51-52-53-62-64-65 cm / 20"-20½"-21"-24½"-25 1/4"-25½" in total, front piece is finished. Fasten off.
Work the other shoulder the same way but reversed and use diagram A.5 instead of A.4. Sew the shoulder seams.

The sleeves are worked from armhole and outwards.
ROW 1: Beg at the bottom at one of the markers for armhole, and work ch-spaces over the armhole as follows: 1 sc, * ch 5, 1 sc *, repeat from *-* until there are 20-21-23-23-25-26 ch-spaces (every ch-space is over 1½-2 cm / ½"-3/4"). Continue back and forth with pattern A.x until 3 repetitions in total vertically have been worked - READ CROCHET TIP - AT THE SAME TIME dec in every section with dc as follows:
1st and 2nd time A.x is worked dec 1 dc in each side of piece on the 1st, 3rd and 5th row with dc in A.x = 6 dc dec in each side. 48-51-57-57-63-66 dc remain.
3rd time A.x is worked dec as follows: Dec 1 dc in each side of piece on the first 4-5-5-5-5-5 rows with dc = 40-41-47-47-53-56 dc remain. Continue with 4-3-2-2-1-0 rows with dc. Now sleeve measures approx. 36-35-34-34-33-32 cm / 14 1/4"-13 3/4"-13½"-13½"-13"-12½". Fasten off.

Just finished making this jumper, I found the pattern hard at first but once I read it a couple of times it made sense and I am really pleased with the result. Also this is a really quick make, only took me two days so definitely going to make this again.

Lezlie Wilcox 21.01.2019 - 02:46:

DROPS is famous for it's poorly written, hard to follow patterns. This is no exception.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 13:00:

Dear Mrs Wilcox, we are sorry to hear you have worries with this pattern, you are welcome to ask your question here and to contact the store where you bought the yarn for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Brona 13.11.2018 - 18:48:

Please help i\'m stuck after row 6, don\'t understand diagram. Need written version or explaination please.

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 08:04:

Dear Brona, each symbol in diagram represents 1 stitch - see diagram key. Start working from RS at the bottom corner on the right side (see 1 = row 1) and work A.1 over the first 4 sts, then repeat A.2 until 3 sts remain at the end of the row and work A.3. From WS read diagram from the left towards the right: A.3, repeat A.2 and finish with A.1. Happy crocheting!

Monique 30.07.2018 - 19:44:

Ich bin gerade beim Vorderteil (Größe L) in Höhe der 43cm, wo ich nun die Schultern einzeln häkeln soll, und bin mit der 4. Bogenreihe gerade fertig. Muss ich erst einmal normal weiter häkeln, bis ich eine Stäbchenreihe haben, bevor ich die Schultern beginne (so ähnlich wie auf dem Foto)? Ich bin mir unsicher, ob das gut aussieht, wenn ich in einer Bogenreihe mit den Schultern starte. Außerdem sind in A4 und A5 Stäbchenreihen als erste Reihe.

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 09:54:

Liebe Monique, Die Schultern beginnen mit einer Bogenreihe, aber gerne können Sie anpassen, jenach dem Sie Bogenreihe oder Stb häkeln (damit Muster gleich wie beim Rückenteil wird), einfach über die ersten 33 Stb häkeln für die erste Schulter. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Katharina 15.05.2018 - 21:37:

Hallo, ich bin beim Vorderteil bei Diagramm A4, Größe L. Über die ersten 33 Stäbchen sollen Lfm-Bögen, macht 11 Bögen. Dann 2 Bögen abketten in den nächsten Reihen macht 9 Bögen. Dann sollen 4 stb in den ersten Bogen, danach je 3 stb pro Bogen und am Ende nochmal 4 stb. Das sind bei mir allerdings 29 stb und nicht wie in der Anleitung benötigt 26. Was mache ich falsch? Liebe Grüße!

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 09:01:

Liebe Katharina, arrangieren Sie die Maschenanzahl bei der 1. Reihe mit Stb so daß Sie die richtige Breite bekommen - Ihr Hinweis wird unser Designteam weiterleitet. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Nadia Trappeniers 11.08.2017 - 20:01:

Hallo, wat geeft het beste resultaat: voor- en achterpand aan elkaar naaien of aan elkaar haken. Dankuwel

DROPS Design 15.08.2017 kl. 17:23:

Hallo Nadia, In dit geval is in elkaar naaien met kleine steekjes het mooist (althans naar mijn smaak ;)

Gaby 25.04.2017 - 21:33:

Liebes Drops-Team, habe die ersten 8 Lochmusterreihen gehäkelt, und das Teil wellt sich wie ein Regenbogen, das heißt der Lochmusterstreifen misst 10cm mehr als der Stäbchenstreifen. Sollte ich das Lochmuster mit einer dünneren Häkelnadel probieren, oder ist das normal am Anfang? Auch wenn ich das Lochmuster in die Höhe ziehe, ist es immer noch recht wellig.

DROPS Design 26.04.2017 kl. 09:32:

Liebe Gaby, beachten Sie Ihre Maschenprobe und, passen Sie mal auf, das Lochmuster nicht zu locker zu häkeln, damit Sie die richtige Breite behalten. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Kerry 28.03.2017 - 14:46:

Hello! I have just started crocheting this and am already confused on the second row! It says to work one rebbe in every treble. Do I miss the chain spaces from the previous row? If I don't then I end up with 81 stitches and this doesn't fit with the A.1, A.2 and A.3 pattern for the third row. If I miss the chain space then the piece is becoming u-shaped! Do I need to still have 70 trebles on rows 1-6? Thanks!

DROPS Design 28.03.2017 kl. 16:45:

Dear Kerry, on very first row, you are crocheting trebles, skipping chains evenly = 70-112 tr (see size). On 2nd row, work then 1 tr in every tr, number of tr should be now the same, ie 70-112 tr. Work a total of 6-5 row with tr. Then work following diagrams A.1 (1 time), repeat A.2 and finish with A.3 starting on row 1 (row with the star shows the last tr-row). Happy crocheting!

Jean 23.03.2017 - 22:07:

I am stuck on Left Shoulder. "Work chain spaces as before" = where did I do this before? (with 2 dc between every sc on first row with chain spaces). I don't understand what this means. Thank you

DROPS Design 24.03.2017 kl. 09:02:

Dear Jean, just crochet same pattern as before but over the first 27-45 dc only (leave the remaining sts on row unworked, these are for neck and right shoulder). at the same time, decrease for neck as shown in diagram A.4, ie work the last of these 27-45 dc as in A.4. Happy crocheting!

Jean 23.03.2017 - 22:05:

Is there a video available for this pattern?

DROPS Design 24.03.2017 kl. 08:57:

Dear Jean, there is no specific video to this pattern, just read the diagram starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from left towards right from WS. Happy crocheting!
