See diagrams A.1-A.2.

Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with 3 ch.

Work 3 dc into 1 dc as follows: * Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook) *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.

Work back and forth. Work 94-101-108-122-129-143 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Cotton Light. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next ch 5, * 1 dc in each of the next ch 6, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch remains, 1 dc in last ch = 80-86-92-104-110-122 dc. Then work as follows: 3 ch - READ CROCHET INFO, skip 1 dc (replaced by the 3 ch), A.1 (= 6 sts) 13-14-15-17-18-20 times in total, finish with 1 dc in last dc. Continue pattern like this. Eyelet holes in A.1 goes diagonally towards the left 2 sts on every row (seen from RS) until hole meets the one dc in left side of piece. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.z until finished measurements. Fasten off when piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''. Now work pattern as before over the middle 68-74-80-80-86-98 sts (= 6-6-6-12-12-12 sts in each side for armhole). When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'', adjust so that next row is from RS. Work over the first 20-23-24-24-24-31 sts (= shoulder) as follows: Work 1 dc in every dc and 2 dc in every ch-space = 20-23-24-24-24-31 dc. Work 2 rows with 1 dc in every dc.
Fasten off. Do the same on the other shoulder

Work as back piece but work A.2 instead of A.1, i.e. eyelet holes goes diagonally towards the right (seen from RS). Repeat A.x until finished measurements. When piece measures 45-47-48-50-51-53 cm / 17 3/4"-18½"-19"-19 3/4"-20"-21", adjust after a whole repetition of A.x dec for neck (next row is from WS) as follows: Work as before over the first 31-34-37-37-40-46 dc, work 3 dc TOG - see explanation above. Turn piece. Repeat this dec on every row toward mid-front 7-7-8-8-9-9 times in total = 20-23-24-24-25-31 sts remain for shoulder.
Then work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc and 2 dc in every ch-space. Work 2 rows with 1 dc in every dc. Fasten off. Do the same on the other shoulder

Work back and forth. Work 45-45-49-49-52-52 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Cotton Light. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5-5-7-7-5-5 ch, * 1 dc in each of the next ch 6, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1-1-3-3-1-1 ch remains, 1 dc in the last 1-1-3-3-1-1 ch = 38-38-42-42-44-44 dc. Work 1 dc in each of the first 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc, A.2 until 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc remain, (= 6-6-6-6-7-7 times in width), 1 dc in each of the last 1-1-3-3-1-1 dc. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.x until finished measurements. When piece measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm / 4'', inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in first and last dc on row (= 2 dc inc). Repeat inc every 4½-4-4-3-3-2½ cm / 1 3/4"-1½"-1½"-1"-1"-7/8" 9-10-10-12-12-14 more times = 58-60-64-68-70-74 sts. Work the inc sts in pattern. NOTE: There is always 1 dc (or 3 ch = 1 dc) in each side of piece. Fasten off when piece measures 52-52-51-51-51-48 cm / 20½"-20½"-20"-20"-20"-19" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Work another sleeve the same way.

Work the shoulder seams tog from WS as follows through both layers: 1 sc in first dc, * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-*. Sew in sleeves. Work the under arm seams and side seams tog from WS as follows through both layers: * 1 sc in outer loop, ch 3, skip 1 row *, repeat from *-* until approx. 10 cm / 4'' remain on body for vent in each side. Fasten off.

Work an edge around the neck as follows from mid on top of shoulder: 1 sc, * ch 3, skip approx. 1 cm / ½'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* around the entire neck and finish with 1 sl st in first sc on round. Fasten off.

I'm in the US, not Canada - it switched back to Canada when it told me my comment was too long (I had 38 characters left, weird). Thank you, again, for the support and patterns. Now I need to order more yarn to crochet this pattern, too!

Shyanha 19.11.2018 - 19:41:

Google Translate has helped immensely! It looks like the shoulder shaping question has been asked several times in different languages and it's funny to see the translations. "Air stitches" and "sticks" are common and those sound silly. :) I love the DROPs patterns - they're a great way to learn how to read charts, and questions are answered quickly so we can keep hooking. I just finished "Cameron" and started "Miles Away."

Judith 30.08.2018 - 23:42:

Hallo, ich habe jetzt 2x angefangen, weil mir die 94 LM viel zu viele vorkommen. Ich möchte den Pullover in s machen und selbst bei der kleineren Nadelstärke von 3,5 komme ich auf 60 cm . Die Breite soll doch aber am unteren Ende 50 cm ergeben. Oder mache ich einen Denkfehler? Viele Grüße Judith

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 11:53:

Liebe Judith, in der Größe S beginnen Sie mit 94 Lm, aber bei der 1. Reihe werden Sie regelmäßig Luftmaschen überspringen und dann 80 Stb am Ender der 1. Reihe bekommen (es wird mehr Lm angeschlagen damit die Kante nicht zu eng wird). Sollte Ihre Maschenprobe stimmen, dann bekommen Sie die 50 cm mit den 80 Stb. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

I have finished the tunic. As I was sewing it together I realized that the sleeve opening was not nearly wide enough to fit in the armhole. I had to adjust the side seams in order to make the sleeve fit. I was reading the instructions to Drops pattern 187-2 and in that pattern in the sleeve section it explains that a marker has to be placed where the sewing will stop and how the sleeve is then sewn in. I think these instructions need to be put into the Drops 162-3 pattern.

Linda Manhartsberger 25.07.2018 - 14:46:

I am beginning the decrease at the neck on the front and I have a couple questions: 1. Is there no adjustment for the armhole on the front piece? 2. If I work only the first 31 stitches on each side that leaves quite a few stitches unworked in the middle. Is that correct???

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 15:53:

Dear Mrs Manhartsberger, you will shape the armholes on front piece as on back piece. Then crochet each shoulder separately will shape the neck, after the first shoulder has been worked, cut the yarn and work the 2nd shoulder. Happy crocheting!

Claudia 02.07.2018 - 20:39:

Hola, la parte delantera no lleva sisa, ¿verdad? Entonces, ¿cómo se unen la parte delantera y trasera y las mangas? Es que me queda un vacío en la parte de atrás, a la altura de la manga. No sé qué hice mal. Agradeceré infinitamente la ayuda.

DROPS Design 08.07.2018 kl. 17:41:

Hola Claudia. La parte del delantero también tiene sisa, se trabaja de la misma manera que en la espalda. Tienes que leer las explicaciones para la espalda cuando trabajas el delantero excepto para la parte del escote.

Gisèle 01.07.2018 - 02:01:

Bonjour, j'habite au nord-est du Nouveau-Brunswick, au Canada. Vos produits sont-ils disponibles près de chez moi? Merci

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 09:51:

Bonjour Gisèle, vous trouverez ici liste des magasins DROPS au Canada et/ou qui expédient au Canada. Bon tricot!

Would you be so kind and send me the pattern stitch in rows. I am not used to diagrams and I can\'t follow the diagram. Rows would be much easier for me. Thanking you in advance.

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 09:14:

Dear Mrs Smith, there are only diagrams to this pattern, however you can watch the video to A.1 and A.2 following diagrams at the same time to understand how to read both diagrams. Happy crocheting!
