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.
See diagrams A.1 to A.7. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

The piece is worked top down.

Right shoulder:
Work 69-92-114-137 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with Safran.
ROW 1 (= WS): Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5-3-5-3 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 55-73-91-109 dc. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Now work according to diagram, i.e. work as follows:
ROW 1-6: (1st row = RS): Work A.1, A.2, A.3 2-3-4-5 times in total, A.4, A.5. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROW 7 (= RS): Work last row in A.1-A.4 as before but finish with A.6 over A.5.
Continue until A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, in A.1-A.4 repeat rows in A.x. Cut the yarn.

Work left shoulder as right shoulder, work A.7 over A.1. On last row in A.7 (= from WS) work 35 ch for neck at the end of row, fasten with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of last row on right shoulder. Cut the yarn.
Now work over all sts, beg from RS as follows: A.1, A.2, A.3 9-10-11-12 times in total, A.4, finish with A.5. Continue like this. When piece measures approx. 24-26-28-30 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4" – adjust after 7th row, sleeves are done.
Then work as follows, beg from WS: Skip 3 ch-space, beg by working in next sc as follows: A.5, A.4, A.3 7-8-9-10 times in total, A.2, finish with A.1 (do not work the last 3 ch-spaces). Continue like this until piece measures approx. 48-52-56-58 cm / 19"-20½"-22"-22 3/4", adjust after 5th row in diagram. Fasten off.

Work left shoulder in ch-row from cast on edge (work in same ch as dc's, i.e. in the 55-73-91-109 dc) from left front piece as follows:
ROW 1-6: (1st row = RS): Work A.1, A.2, A.3 2-3-4-5 times in total, A.4, A.5. Cut the yarn.
Work right shoulder as left shoulder but in right front piece - NOTE! Instead of cutting the yarn work 71 ch for neck and fasten with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of last row on left shoulder. Cut the yarn.
Now work over all sts the same way as on front piece.

Sew side and underarm seams in one.

Work an edge around the neck, beg from one shoulder as follows:
ROUND 1: Work * 1 sc, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* along the neck with approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' between every sc, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 2: ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in first sc from beg of 1st round. Fasten off.
Work an edge at the bottom along front and back piece the same way, beg from the side. Work an edge around the sleeve the same way, beg from mid under sleeve.

J'ai déjà un problème au 1er rang du diagramme...... Je fais 1ml pour la 1ère m serrée puis 5 ml, je passe 5 Br, je fais 1 ms dans la 6ème et ainsi de suite jusqu'à la fin du rang. C'est bien ça ? Merci pour votre aide Véronique

Bonjour Véronique, c'est tout à fait ça pour le 1er rang de A.1-A.5. Bon crochet!

Helen Smith 01.08.2018 - 12:24:

"Dear Mrs Smith, A.5 is worked over 1 st (= 1 dc/3 ch), when working A.6 over A.5, work over this dc (= row 1 in A.6 is 3 ch (= 1st tr), 3 ch) - A.6 = increase for neck. A.7 will be worked the same way over A.1 instead of over A.5. Happy crocheting!" Sadly this doesn't answer my question. As i turn the work for each row does A.6 over A.5 become A.1 when I turn my work? Do I therefore increase on BOTH sides for the sleeves? This pattern isn't very descriptive!

DROPS Design 01.08.2018 kl. 13:59:

Dear Mrs Smith, when reading diagrams, read from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS, ie from RS you will work A.1, A.2, A.3, A.4 and A.5 and from WS you will work: A.5 (over A.5), A.4 (over A.4), A.3 (over A.3), A.2 (over A.2) and A.1 (over A.1). Happy crocheting!

Helen Smith 29.07.2018 - 14:43:

I'm really struggling with the sleeves & unfortunately your tutorial on youtube starts after they've been made. As you work in rows & turn the work how does the A.6 over A.5 work? Do I do this every turn so the increase is on both sides? Or am I doing the increase every other row so the increase is only on one side?

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 09:11:

Dear Mrs Smith, A.5 is worked over 1 st (= 1 dc/3 ch), when working A.6 over A.5, work over this dc (= row 1 in A.6 is 3 ch (= 1st tr), 3 ch) - A.6 = increase for neck. A.7 will be worked the same way over A.1 instead of over A.5. Happy crocheting!

Ik ga er vanuit dat de verticale streep in het patroon schema stokje om losse moet zijn ipv stokje om stokje

Kan ni vara snälla att visa hur man virkar A6.

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 08:05:

Hei Susanne. Vi har notert ned ditt ønske. Kan ikke sette noen dato på når den vil bli ferdig, da vi jobber med video til årets kolleksjon, men så fort vi har muligheten.

Susanne 09.05.2017 - 11:08:

Ich weiss, die Schulter von Ref. 162-15 ist laut Zeichnung 16 cm breit. Ist leicht auszurechnen. Bitte machen Sie sich doch mal die Mühe und häkeln selbst über 55 Stäbchen das Muster. Ich habe eine Breite von 22.5 mit einer kleineren Häkelnadel, mit N° 3 !!!!!!!!!!!! Da stimmt doch was nicht ! Und Mustersatz A3 von Ref. 162-15 ergibt keine 10.5 cm , sondern 15cm !!!!!!! Bitte auch das überprüfen. Meine Freundin hat das ebenfalls festgestellt !!

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 10:00:

Liebe Frau Chevallier, danke für Ihre Rückmeldung, die wird Designteam weitergeleitet.

CHEVALLIER Ursula 24.04.2017 - 21:55:

Für Ref. 162-15 (Sommerpulli) soll eine Maschenprobe 2 x A3 = 10.5 cm in der Breite ergeben mit Häkenadeln 3.5. Ich habe bei 2 x A3 mit Nadeln Nr. 3, also kleiner, 15 cm Breite...! Schade ist, dass auf der Zeichnun nicht die Breite von der Schulter angegeben ist. Bei mir misst die Schulter ca. 22.5 cm in der Breite(mit Nadel 3) !

DROPS Design 25.04.2017 kl. 09:07:

Liebe Frau Chevallier, die Breite am Schulter können Sie so kalkulieren (1. Größe): 53 cm - 21 cm (Halsausschnitt) = 32 cm / 2 Schulter = 16 cm für jede Schulter. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

CHEVALLIER Ursula 24.04.2017 - 00:46:

Warum 69 M. aufnehmen, wenn man dann das Muster über 55 M. weiterführt ? Wieso habe ich bei 2 x A4 (= 39 Maschen ) nicht die Maschenprobenbreite von 10.5 cm , sondern 15 cm, obwohl ich schon eine kleinere Häkelnadel (3) als vorgesehen nahm ? Da stimmen doch nicht die Abmessungen.

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 10:30:

Liebe Frau Chevallier, es wird mehr Lm am Anfang angeschlagen damit die erste Reihe nicht so eng wird, so daß Sie 69 Lm häkeln, und dann bei den 1. Reihe Lm überspringen, damit 55 Stb übrig sind. Dann häkeln Sie die Diagramme über diese 55 Stb. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

CHEVALLIER Ursula (Frankreich) 22.04.2017 - 19:59:

Nach der Aufnahme von 69 Lm. verstehe ich die 1. Reihe (Rückreihe ) nicht, weil sie Gruppen von 4 Stäbchen + 1 M. überspringen anzeigt, auf dem Diagramm als Basis für das Motif Gruppen von 5 Stäbchen + 1 M. überspringen gezeigt wird. Bitte um Erklärung. Danke

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 10:49:

Liebe Frau Chevallier, der 1. Reihe in A.2-A.6 (Rechte Schulter, Vorderteil) wird über die 55 Stäbchen gehäkelt: A.1 (= 1 M), A.2 (= über 9 Stb), A.3 (= 18 M) 2 x (= über 36 Stb), A.4 (= über 8 Stb) und A.6 (= 1 Stb) = 1+9+36+8+1= 55 Stb. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!
