When piece measures approx. 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm, adjust to finish with 2nd row in A.z - cut the yarn. Then work sleeves as follows: Work 29 loose ch, beg from WS and continue A.3, A.2 and A.1 and tr over back piece as before and finish with 31 loose ch, turn piece. Now work 1st row in A.1-A.3 over ch from RS, AT THE SAME TIME continue with pattern over back piece as before (i.e. work 4th row in A.z over these sts) as follows:

Work 1 tr in each of the first 6 ch, A.1 over the next 8 ch, A.2 2 times in width (i.e. work last A.2 over the last 5 ch, then work the rest of A.2 over A.1), work A.2 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in width as before, A.3, 1 tr in each of the next 4-6-9-13-6-11 tr, A.1, A.2, A.3, 1 tr in each of the next 4-6-9-13-6-11 tr, A.1, A.2 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in width, then work A.2 2 times in width (i.e. work the first A.2 over A.3 and the next 6 ch), A.3 over the next 5 ch and 1 tr in each of the last 6 ch. Continue this pattern until piece measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm - adjust to finish after a row from WS. Then finish each shoulder/sleeve separately as follows:

When piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm, adjust to finish with a whole repetition of A.z (i.e. last row is from RS) - cut the yarn. Then work shawl collar.

Ik ben een beginnende haakster en snap het patroon wel maar ik zet 111 lossen op dan volg ik a1 a2 en a3 maar dan komen er stkjes tussen hoeveel moet ik er precies tussen doen ook 4 zoals in het filmpje want dan komt het niet uit bij mij hopelijk begrijpt u mijn vraag alvast bedankt

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 10:32:

Dag Jacqueline, Bij de beschrijving van het achterpand staat op een gegeven moment dat je 1 stk in elke van de volgende 4-6-9-13-6-11 lossen moet haken. In de video wordt de kleinse maat gehaakt, dus dan zijn het 4 stokjes. In jou geval moet je dan dus 2 stokjes haken.

Rebecca S Zander 22.08.2018 - 10:54:

Im having trouble with the number of dc between each section as you work rows az. I seem to be confused only in that part. Wouldnt ot be better to do a chart for the whole row including the dc sections between the repeats.

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:17:

Dear Mrs Zander, our customer are not used to read full diagrams that's why whe choose diagrams for the repeats and written explanations to the whole pattern. This video below shows how to crochet A.1, A.2 and A.3 with dc in between as in pattern, showing how to replace the first dc on 1st row in A.z from WS. Happy crocheting!

Linda 21.07.2018 - 08:46:

Ik begrijp niet waar ik moet beginnen met aanhaken als ik bij het onderdeel ‘sjaalkraag’ ben. Voor mij is de uitleg onduidelijk. Al gekeken bij andere patronen met sjaalkraag, maar daar is de beschrijving hetzelfde. Begin je middenachter bij het achterpand of aan het midden van het voorpand of nog ergens anders ? Ik loop steeds vast en moet het weer uithalen. Het komt er nl. niet zo uit te zien als op de tekening.

DROPS Design 22.07.2018 kl. 12:08:

Dag Linda, De sjaalkraag haak je aan beide voorpanden (niet aan het achterpand) en je hoeft de draad niet af te knippen voordat je begint aan de sjaalkraag. Je haakt a.h.w. een stukje bovenop het voorpand, maar dan niet over de hele breedte van het voorpand (dit kun je ook in de schematekening zien). Dit extra stuk maak je aan beide voorpanden en op het eind worden ze midden achter samengenaaid en aan de hals van het achterpand.

Zoe 31.05.2018 - 15:34:

Si eso es los que quiero saber. Las instrucciones no me dicen cuando tengo que meter los 13 puntos altos que dice el patron y despues al querer seguir las puntadas que siguen no encajan y se descompone el patron. Ojala' me explique' mejor ahora. Al seguir el patron no sigue como en el dibujo. Gracias

DROPS Design 10.06.2018 kl. 10:36:

Hola Zoe. Lo primero, cuando escribes una pregunta tienes que marcar la pestaña "pregunta", no "general". Los 13 puntos no están incluidos en el diagrama, se trabajan sobre los puntos de cadeneta entre los diagramas A.3 y A.1, pero están incluidos en el número total de puntos.

Zoe 25.05.2018 - 19:44:

Favor de decirme si existe una instruccion para el patron 157-18? El que ensenan aqui no tiene los 13 puntos que dice mi patron. Como los meto para seguir las instrucciones del patron 157-18 ? Gracias.

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 12:15:

Hola Zoe. ¿Puedes especificar tu pregunta? ¿Te refieres al diagrama? ¿Los 13 puntos altos (para la talla) que están entre los A.3 y A.1?

Zoe 25.05.2018 - 00:35:

I'm trying to make this sweater but how do I finish the first row? It says to do Az and I only have 11 chains left?

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 09:33:

Dear Zoe, you work A.1, A.2 and A.3 as stated before in width and work A.z in height (= there are 4 rows in A.z in height). Happy crocheting!

Lyn Buttineau 10.05.2018 - 15:06:

Why are the number of chains different when starting the sleeve extentions, 29 on the first side and 31 on the second side? Does this make one sleeve shorter than the other?

DROPS Design 11.05.2018 kl. 08:00:

Dear Mrs Buttineau, you beg next round with 1 dc in each of the first 6 ch but the 3 turning ch (= 1st dc) are already worked, so that you will start row with 1 dc in the 4th chain from hook (= 2 dc), and 1 dc in each of the next 4 chains (= 4 dc) = there are now 6 dc at the beg of round, including the 3 turning chains. At the end of row, finish with 1 dc in each of the last 6 chains. Happy crocheting!

Carol 13.04.2018 - 20:48:

After row 2 do you still have to chain 3 before doing either 4 or 6 dc. In row 5 does the pattern stitch (graph) replace one of the dc at either end of the stitch sequence.

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 08:38:

Dear Carol, the 3 ch in 2nd rown in diagram (= 1st row in A.z) will be worked only on this row ro replace 1st dc - see video. Happy crocheting!

Pearl B. Spodick 01.04.2018 - 17:09:

If the instructions are available for left-handed crocheters, I'm very interested as a self-taught crocheter. Usually I just do the instructions and it comes out fine.

DROPS Design 01.04.2018 kl. 18:55:

Dear Pearl, we are sorry, but we don't have instrucions for left handed crafters. Each of us knits/crochet differently, and that is especially true for left handed persons. Some works like the mirror image of right handed work, others use special movements and/or tricks to make it work for them. However, it does not matter as long as it comes out looking as it should. Happy Crocheting!

Sharon Hunt 28.02.2018 - 16:49:

This is such a lovely pattern. I hope to make it soon.
