Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
PATTERN:

CROCHET TIP:
Ch-spaces will contract more than crochet pattern at the upper part of body. The jacket will thus be naturally rounded without dec in pattern.

Continue until sleeve measures 27-25-23-20 cm / 10½"-9 3/4"-9"-8" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), and adjust to finish on next to last row in A.Z (i.e. a row with whole ch-spaces in each side of piece). Then work an edge as follows: Beg on 1st row in A.X (= row with ch-spaces, and half ch-spaces in each side of piece) and work this pattern over all ch-spaces at the bottom of sleeve.

Liebes Team, hätte gern gewusst wie in der Anleitung beschrieben ein DStäbchen in die 1 6 5 4 LfM häkeln. Komme da nicht klar. Vielleicht können Sie mir das etwas deutlicher erläutern, wie das gemeint sein soll ? Danke und herzliche Grüße Helga Menzel

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:24:

Liebe Frau Menzel, in die 1. Grösse häklen Sie 1 DStb in die 1 Lfm, in die 2. Grösse häkeln Sie 1 DStb in die 6 nächsten Lfm usw. dh 1 Stb in jeder der nächsten 5 Lfm in die 3. Grösse und 4 Lfm in die letzte Grösse. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Marian Diez 16.06.2018 - 00:14:

He hecho el delantero izquierdo. Ahora tengo que hacer el derecho, según dice como el izquierdo pero a la inversa. ?cómo se hace a la,inversa?

DROPS Design 23.06.2018 kl. 20:35:

Hola Maria. A la inversa significa que se trabajan los puntos del inicio de la fila de la parte trabajada al final de la fila en la parte a trabajar y los puntos del final de la fila de la parte trabajada al principio de la fila de la parte a trabajar. De esta forma, es como un reflejo la parte derecha de la izquierda, tal y como se puede apreciar en la foto.

Kerry Hullett 13.03.2018 - 01:25:

Please can you explain why the first row contains so many double trebles? The start of all my pieces is very full because there are so many stitches so that the seams don't lie flat

DROPS Design 13.03.2018 kl. 09:47:

Dear Mrs Hullett, you start with a double treble row and then crochet pattern following diagrams as explained. This double treble row is the first row of diagrams A.4,A.5.A.6. When you will crochet diagram, the first row will look more flat. Make sure to check and keep the stated tension. Happy crocheting!

Elke 28.02.2018 - 15:12:

Wahnsinn, so eine schwierig komplizierte anleitung hab ich noch nie gesehen. Ich handarbeite seit 40 jahren, aber da blick ich nicht durch.

DROPS Design 28.02.2018 kl. 17:54:

Liebe Elke, wenn Sie eine Frage haben, können Sie sie hier stellen, oder für individuelle Hilfe bitte Kontakt mit Ihrem Laden aufnehmen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Judy Caudill 17.07.2017 - 04:17:

I'm so sad I can't figure out the instructions for this pattern I really wanted to make this sweater. I've only got the first row done. I crochet left handed, does this change the order the pattern is worked such as A.4,A.5,and A.6 are now reversed for me? The instructions say on row 2 to work those three sections again but the diagram for row 2 shows chains connected to treble crochets. The same for row 3.

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 09:51:

Dear Mrs Caudill, diagram show only 1 repeat of A.5 but you have to work 2 repeats of A.5 in width before working next diagram in your size. Remember A.4 = towards neck and A.6 = towrds shoulder, so that you can adjust your way of crocheting if it is different. Do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store, they will help you to read diagrams if necessary. Happy crocheting!

Judy Caudill 13.07.2017 - 20:37:

I don't need a tutorial to work this pattern, the stitches look simple enough, but the instructions (A.l, A.6, A.z) are very complicated and it appears many people are having difficulty reading the instructions too. Do you have someplace on your website where there is a good explanation of these type of instructions? Or maybe there is a simpler pattern to get me started before I buy my yarn?

DROPS Design 14.07.2017 kl. 10:01:

Dear Mrs Caudill, start reading the diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side and read towards the left from RS and from left to right from WS. Each symbol = 1 st/group of sts (see diagram text). Should you need any further individual assistance on how to read a diagram, remember you can contact your DROPS store even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!
