PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Dec 1 repetition (= 1 dc + 3 ch) by not working ch, but work 2 dc into 1 dc as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round from mid back on the back. Work 6 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Big Delight and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Work according to diagram A.1, i.e. work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work ch 3, 13 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2: ch 5, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, * ch 2, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 2 ch = 12 dc + 2 ch.
ROUND 3: Now work the circle into a square, i.e. work as follows: Work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in first ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, * 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, 1 dc in next ch-space (= last 2 ch from previous round), 3 ch.
ROUND 4: Work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in first ch-space, * ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc (= corner) in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 3, 1 dc in next ch-space, 3 ch. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Repeat 4th round with inc, i.e. work 1 dc + 3 ch more between each corner on every round (= 4 inc per round) AT THE SAME TIME on every 6th round inc 1 dc + 3 ch extra on each side of each corner – see star in diagram (= 8 extra inc per round). Continue like this until square measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' x 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''.
Now work armhole as follows: Work as before until first corner, work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc in ch-space in the corner. Now work ch until the middle of next side (i.e. in the middle between 1st and 2nd corner) as follows: Work 1 ch for every ch/dc skipped. Then work pattern as before until the middle between 3rd and 4th corner. Now work ch until beg of round as follows: Work 1 ch for every ch/dc skipped. On next round work pattern and inc as before over all sts, also in ch for armholes.
Continue like this until square measures 78-80-82-84-86-88 cmx 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' x 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' (i.e. 21 cm / 8 1/4'' in all sizes from armhole). Fasten off.

FRONT PIECE:
Now work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE! Work front piece without inc.
1st ROW: Work from first corner as follows: 3 dc in ch-space in the corner, * ch 3, 1 dc in ch-space *, repeat from *-* ending with 3 ch and 3 dc in the corner.

Repeat 1st and 2nd ROUND - AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 dc + 3 ch at beg of 4th-6th-6th-8th-8th-6th round by working 2 dc tog – READ DECREASE TIP – mid under sleeve.

Opakujeme 4. kruhovou řadu s přidáváním, tj. v každé kruhové řadě háčkujeme mezi každými dvěma rohy o 1 DS + 3 řo více (= v jedné kruhové řadě přidáme celkem 4x) a SOUČASNĚ v každé 6. kruhové řadě přidáme navíc ještě 1 DS + 3 řo na každé straně každého rohu – viz hvězdička ve schématu (= 8 přidání - ja to pridavanie v kazdom 6. riadku nevidim na fotografii - naozaj ste to tak robili ? vdaka za odpoved

Rabia Rehman 17.04.2018 - 16:38:

Thank you so much for the reply. I understand how to do armholes, I have to make ch stitch until the middle of 1 corner & 2corner. My questions are: First, how many ch stitch should I do for medium jacket. Secondly, when we will start round1 then how many dc groups should I do in armhole ch space.

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 08:57:

Dear Mrs Rehman, the number of chains you will crochet for armhole is the same as the number of sts you will skip. Count how many sts you have from corner to middle of side and crochet this number of chain for armhole. On next round after chains, crochet pattern in the chain-spaces as before, check previous rows to have the correct number of sts (+ inc in the corner). Happy crocheting!

Rabia REHMAN 14.04.2018 - 01:44:

Can you please explain me how to crochet armholes? I honestly cannot get the pattern. Thank you

DROPS Design 14.04.2018 kl. 13:11:

Dear Rabia, the armholes is worked from a corner downwards up to aprox. the middle of the side. You work a chain stitch row which depends on your size and then it's fastened off with a dc (sc) I hope this helps.

Pamela Velasquez 04.04.2018 - 13:27:

I understand the first row of the sleeve but when attaching your yarn to the armhole on the sweater to start the sleeve do you attach to a chain 3 space or dc on the armhole?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 16:04:

Dear Mrs Velasquez, you will join the yarn mid under arm in a ch-space. Happy crocheting!

Pamela Velasquez 03.04.2018 - 17:17:

Thank you for your quick response. One more question, when joining your yarn for the sleeve do you join in a chain 3 or dc?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 08:30:

Dear Mrs Velasquez, 1st round on sleeve start with 6 ch = 1st dc + 1st ch-space so that you join with a sl st in the 3rd of the 6 ch (= in the first dc at the beg of round). Happy crocheting!

Pamela Velasquez 02.04.2018 - 18:31:

I’m starting a sleeve & according to the size I’m making I should have 17 repeats on first row but I have more chain 3’s than that. Do I need to skip or decrease to get the right amount?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 09:36:

Dear Mrs Velasquez, if your tension is correct, you should have 17 groups of (1 dc, 3 ch) around sleeve. Make sure to skip sts evenly to get the correct number of dc to avoid the sleeve being too large. Happy crocheting!

Zdena 26.03.2018 - 14:04:

Dobrý den,až do místa v návodu :"Nyní háčkujeme průramky" jsem se poměrně radovala, jak mi to pěkně jde a nyní mi ty průramky vůbec nejdou na rozum.Rozumím tomu správně, že průramek je otvor pro budoucí rukáv? Zdá se mi, že bych dle návodu udělala jeden průramek z rohu 1.do poloviny řady a druhý od poloviny řady mezi rohy 3. a 4. až k rohu č. 1???Budu moc ráda za radu a předem děkuji.

DROPS Design 27.03.2018 kl. 06:48:

Dobrý den, Zdeno, ano rozumíte tomu správně :-): průramky jsou otvory pro ruce/rukáv. První uháčkujeme od 1. rohu (horní roh, rameno) do poloviny řady mezi 1. a 2. rohem, pak pokračujeme jako před tím podél boku ke 2. rohu, podél dolního okraje ke 3. rohu (= dolní) a nahoru podél druhého boku - zde od poloviny řady uháčkujeme 2. průramek, končíme 4. rohem (= 2. horní, rameno. Hodně zdaru! Hana

Marta 19.10.2017 - 15:02:

Hi, I have a question on how to do the sleeve. I don't understand where the decrease has to be done, it says that has to be done at "4th-6th-6th-8th-8th-6th round" but I do not understand to what relates these numbers. Thanks for the help :)

DROPS Design 19.10.2017 kl. 16:55:

Dear Marta, each number refers to the size, ie in 1st size dec every 4th round, in 2nd size every 6th round and so on. Happy crocheting!

Anja 04.11.2016 - 18:51:

Sorry, maar dit vind ik dus echt een flut-antwoord. Met alle respect, wat moet ik hier nu mee? Kan iemand serieus antwoord geven a.u.b.?

DROPS Design 07.11.2016 kl. 13:24:

Het vest op de foto is op de beschreven manier gehaakt. Ik weet niet waarom de ontwerpster voor deze type meerdering heeft gekozen, maar ze heeft er waarschijnlijk een goede reden voor. Dus u kunt het patroon volgen - of aanpassen als het niet bevalt. Fijne dag verder!

Anja 03.11.2016 - 22:15:

Kunt u mij uitleggen wat de toegevoegde waarde is van het extra meerderen in elke zesde toer? Volgens mij gaat het werk dan lubberen? Of is het om het "trekken" van de hoeken te verminderen? Bovendien zie ik deze meerderingen ook niet terug op de foto, daar zie ik in elke toer één extra stokje plus lossenboog, en niet in de zesde toer de extra meerderingen. Wat is juist?

DROPS Design 04.11.2016 kl. 14:37:

Hoi Anja. Ik denk dat dit juist wordt gedaan om het werk netjes te krijgen. De ontwerpster heeft vast een bedoeling mee gehad en ik zou het patroon volgen - of aanpassen als ik het niet wilt.
