CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round/row with 3 ch that replace 1st tr and finish every round/row with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round/row.

PATTERN GROUP:
Each pattern group consists of: 1 ch, 2 TR WORKED TOG - see explanation below, 2 ch, 2 tr worked tog and 1 ch.

TR WORKED TOG:
* Make 1 YO, insert hook in ch-space, get yarn, make a YO, pull through 2 of the sts on hook *, repeat from *-* one more time, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

CROCHET 3 TR TOG:
Work 3 tr into 1 tr at beg of row as follows: Work 2 ch (= replace 1 tr), work 1 tr, but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook), then work next tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Dec at beg of row by working 1 sl st over the tr to be dec. Dec at end of row by working until 1 tr to be dec remains, turn piece.
--------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE:
Work 5 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Alpaca and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. READ CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 1: Work 13 tr in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work * 2 tr in every tr*, repeat from *-* the entire round = 26 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 tr in first tr, then 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 39 tr.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 tr in first tr, then 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 52 tr.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 tr in next tr, then 2 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 26 ch-spaces and 26 tr. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 6: In first tr work PATTERN GROUP - see explanation above, * 1 tr in next tr, 1 pattern group in next tr *, repeat from *-* until 1 tr remains, 1 tr in last tr = 13 pattern groups with 1 tr between each.
Then work piece back and forth. Work every row tog at the end of row with 1 sl st in first st on row. Turn piece.
ROW 7 (= from WS): 2 tr in first tr, * 1 pattern group in next pattern group, 2 tr in next tr (= tr-group) *, repeat from *-* until 1 pattern group from previous row remains, 1 pattern group = 13 pattern groups with 13 tr-groups between each. Turn piece.
ROW 8: 1 pattern groups in first pattern group, * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next tr in tr-group, 1 pattern group in next pattern group *, repeat from *-* until 1 tr-group remains, 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next tr in tr-group = 13 groups with 3 tr between each. Turn piece.

Buongiorno, non capisco le diminuzioni per le maniche ( taglia s/m) Potreste spiegarmele ? Grazie

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 11:09:

Buongiorno Giulia, per le diminuzioni sulle maniche, deve diminuire 1 maglia alta a ogni lato per il numero di volte che le viene indicato: all'inizio della riga lavorando 1 maglia bassissima sulla maglia bassa da diminuire, e alla fine della riga girando il lavoro prima della maglia bassa da diminuire. Deve lavorare queste diminuzioni a righe alterne per 4 volte, poi ogni 3 righe 12 volte per un totale di 16 volte (= 32 maglie diminuite), quindi 86 maglie - 32 diminuzioni = 54 maglie rimaste. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 29.12.2017 - 22:44:

Buonasera, non riesco a capire le istruzioni delle maniche. Potreste spiegarmele? Grazie in anticipo

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 10:38:

Buongiorno Giulia. Deve lavorare intorno alle aperture che si sono create per le maniche. Lavora 1 m.a in ogni maglia, chiude ogni giro con 1 m.bss nella prima maglia e gira il lavoro. L'inizio del giro si trova nel sottomanica. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 21.12.2017 - 09:12:

Buongiorno, non riesco a capire le istruzioni del davanti destro, gentilmente potete spiegarmele? Grazie

DROPS Design 24.12.2017 kl. 11:33:

Buongiorno Giulia. Per il davanti destro, deve lavorare sulle maglie tra il primo ed il secondo segno, iniziando sul diritto del lavoro. Aumenta nei gruppi di m.a ma non nel primo e nell'ultimo; inoltre all'inizio di ogni riga, deve diminuire 2 m.a, lavorando 3 m.a insieme. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 06.12.2017 - 09:07:

Ho il dubbio di aver sbagliato qualcosa perché poi quando lavoro la riga 26, quando arrivo allo scalfo destro le istruzioni dicono di lavorare incominciando a saltare una cat poi di saltare un gruppo di motivi ecc ma dove dice di lavorare il gruppo di motivi, io nel giro precedente ho lavorato le maglie alte, quindi mi sembra strano Grazie

DROPS Design 06.12.2017 kl. 17:17:

Buongiorno Giulia. Nello scalfo destro (dove ci sono le 50 cat), lavora come indicato per quello sinistro, ma leggendo dalla fine: quindi salta 1 cat, lavora 1 gruppo di motivi, salta 1 cat, lavora 10 m.alte e così via. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 05.12.2017 - 17:17:

Buonasera, ho delle difficoltà alla riga 25 taglia S/M, Ho fatto questo: 20 m.a, 1 gruppo di motivi, 20 m.a, 50 cat, saltato 1 gruppo di motivi, 1 gruppo di m.a, 1 gruppo di motivi, un gruppo di m.a, ho proseguito dal gruppo di motivi, ho lavorato 6 gruppi di m.a e 6 gruppi di motivi, poi ho fatto 50 cat, ho saltato 1 gruppo di m.a, 1 gruppo di motivi, 1 gruppo di m.a un gruppo di motivi poi ho proseguito la lavorazione con 2 gruppi di m.a 2 gruppi di motivi. Ho girato il lavoro. È corretto?

Giulia 03.12.2017 - 21:45:

Buonasera, volevo chiedere se per favore mi spiegate la riga 25 soprattutto quando dice di "aumentare in ogni gruppo di M.a come prima" Grazie in anticipo

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 12:57:

Buongiorno Giulia. Lavora come indicato e quando lavora i gruppi di m.a aumenta lavorando 2 m.a nella prima m.a del gruppo. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 01.12.2017 - 21:54:

Quindi una volta terminati i primi 6 giri la lavorazione non prosegue in cerchio? (Mi scuso ma è la mia prima lavorazione 🙈)

DROPS Design 01.12.2017 kl. 22:36:

Buonasera Giulia. Dopo i primi 6 giri, prosegue avanti e indietro, ma alla fine di ogni riga, lavora 1 m.bss nella prima m della riga e gira  il lavoro. Quindi lavora sia sul diritto che sul rovescio del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Giulia 01.12.2017 - 16:19:

Nel cerchio, una volta terminato la riga nove bisogna proseguire ripetendo la riga 8 e la riga 9. Ma una volta ripetute per 6 volte le istruzioni dicono di aggiungere 18 righe, quest'ultima parte non mi è chiara. Mi riferisco a questa parte del testo " Ripetere ora la riga 8 e la riga 9 finché non sono stati lavorati 6 giri + 18-20-22 righe (= 19-21-23 m.a tra ogni gruppo di motivi) = 247-273-299 m.a e 13 gruppi di motivi."

DROPS Design 01.12.2017 kl. 17:15:

Buongiorno Giulia.  Inizia il lavoro in tondo e lavora 6 giri. Dopo questi 6 giri, prosegue avanti e indietro e quindi si parla di righe. Ripete le righe 8 e 9 finché non ha lavorato 18-20-22 righe (i 6 giri di cui parla sono i 6 giri iniziali). Verifichi anche il numero di maglie.  Buon lavoro!

Pixin 29.10.2017 - 22:29:

Hi there, I am stuck at row 6. I don't get if I have to ch 3 to start. Also, the Group Pattern, is it supposed to be split over 2 chain spaces from previous round? What I mean: ch3, ch1, 2dc worked TOG inside the chain space from previous round, ch2, 2dc Worked TOG inside the chain from next chain space from previous round, ch1, 1dc on next dc. Really getting confusing. Please help me. Thank you.

Sonia 17.10.2017 - 21:43:

Bonjour, je commence les diminutions des manches et je ne comprends pas comment marche le point ?

DROPS Design 18.10.2017 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Sonia, au début de la manche, on crochète simplement en brides en diminuant 1 m au début du rang+ 1 m à la fin du rang - à une fréquence différente selon chaque taille, par ex en S/M, on diminue 4x tous les 2 rangs (= 1 rang de diminutions, 1 rang sans diminutions) puis 12 x tous les 3 rangs (= 1 rang de diminutions, 2 rangs sans diminutions). Bon crochet!
