CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, ch does not replace first dc.
Beg every dc row with 3 ch.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working the next 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1-A.10. Diagram A.8 shows how round beg and ends. NOTE: In diagram A.2-A.4, A.6 and A.10 first round in diagram is last round on previous diagram, it is not worked but shows how to continue.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE:
Work 5 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Merino Extra Fine and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work A.1 as follows:

ROUND 1: Work 3 ch - READ CROCHET INFO, 12 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in back loop of every dc = 24 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 dc in back loop of first/next dc, 1 dc in back loop of next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

Then work A.2 6 times in total on round. NOTE: A.8 in same diagram shows how every round beg and ends. Note if dc is worked in back loop, in or around st (applies for all diagrams). When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 96 dc and 24 ch on round (= 120 sts in total). Piece measures approx. 28 cm / 11'' in diameter. Then work A.3 12 times in total on round. When 2-3-4 rounds of A.3 have been worked (circle measures approx. 36-38-40 cm / 14 1/4"-15"-15 3/4" in diameter), there are 156-168-192 sts on round (= 156-168-96 dc and 0-0-96 ch). Now work armholes in the different sizes:

SIZE S/M:
Round now deviates from diagram because of armhole. Work as follows:
Work 3rd round in A.3 as follows (all dc on this round are worked in back loop of dc): Work ch 3, * 2 dc in first dc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, 26 ch, skip 26 dc (= armhole), repeat from *-* 6 times in total, 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc, 26 ch, skip 26 dc (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 116 dc (= 26 ch for each sleeve, 168 sts in total).
Work 4th round in A.3 as follows (all dc worked in dc, are worked in back loop on this round): Work ch 3, ** 1 dc in first/next dc/ch, ch 1, * 1 dc in next dc/ch, ch 1, skip 1 dc/ch *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, 1 dc in next dc/ch, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc/ch, ch 1, skip 1 dc/ch **, repeat from **-** 11 more times, work like this over ch-spaces (= sleeve) too, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 96 dc and 96 ch (= 192 sts in total). Then work A.3 as before. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 192 dc on round. Then work A.4 24 times in total on round.

SIZE L/XL:
Round now deviates from diagram because of armhole. Work as follows:
Work 4th round in A.3 as follows (all dc worked in dc, are worked in back loop on this round): Work ch 3, ** 1 dc in first/next dc, ch 1, * 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc **, repeat from **-** 2 more times, work 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, work 28 ch, skip 28 dc (= armhole), repeat from **-** 4 times in total, work 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc, * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 28 ch, skip 28 dc (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 65 dc and 119 ch (= 28 ch for each sleeve, 184 sts in total).
Work 5th round in A.3 as follows (all dc worked in dc, are worked in back loop on this round): Work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc in every ch. Over ch-space for each sleeve work as follows: Work * 1 dc in each of the first ch 6, 2 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 192 dc. Continue working diagram A.3. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 192 dc on round. Then work A.4 24 times in total on round.

SIZE XXL/XXXL:
Round now deviates from diagram because of armhole. Work as follows:
Work 5th round in A.3 as follows (all dc worked in dc, are worked in back loop on this round): Work ch 3, * 1 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc around next ch *, repeat from *-* 24 more times, 1 dc in next dc, 30 ch, skip 15 dc and 15 ch (= 30 sts in total) for armhole, * work 1 dc around next ch, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 39 more times, 1 dc around next ch, 30 ch, skip the last 15 dc and 15 ch (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 132 dc and 30 ch for each sleeve (= 192 sts in total). Then work A.4 24 times in total on round. Work first round as follows: Work ch 3, * ch 3, skip 3 dc/ch, 1 dc in next dc/ch, ch 3, skip 3 dc/ch, 1 dc in next dc/ch *, repeat from *-* 23 more times, work like this over ch-spaces (= sleeves) too, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 48 ch-spaces.

UchihaK 12.08.2019 - 02:03:

Hello, I am doing the L/XL pattern but I am stuck on A.3 I have finished A.3 in one height but the diameter is 36cm so I repeated the first round once more(the treble crochet) which I am not sure if it is correct but I have reached 38cm in diameter. Do I stop and do the armhole (if yes how do I proceed) or do I continue 2nd and 3rd round again for A.3 then do the armhole?

DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 08:50:

Dear Mrs UchihaK, is your tension in height correct? Do you have the correct crochet tension in both width and height? It would be a better idea to get and keep the gauge to be sure you will get the right measurements. Happy crocheting!

UchihaK 03.08.2019 - 01:34:

Hello, I would like to know if I can use an alternative yarn to the one mentioned. I would like to use DROPS Karisma. Would it have the same texture and feeling to the one mentioned in the pattern?

DROPS Design 03.08.2019 kl. 12:49:

Dear UchihaK, Karisma belongs to the same yarn group of Merino Extra Fine, so you can use it as alternative yarn. Just be sure to check if your gauge match the one recommended in the pattern. Happy crafting!

Kristin L Blevins 30.07.2019 - 18:29:

I am working the sleeve portion and have already made the cap portion of the sleeve. Now I am stuck. I am confused about all the chains and double crochet. It says chain 18 then work dc in all dc of the cap. I am confused from this point forward. Is there a video or could someone please help?

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 10:58:

Dear Mrs Blevins, when sleeve cap has been worked, you now have to increase new stitches on each side of A.7, you now cut the yarn. Crochet now 18 chains, then work 1 dc in each of the dc in A.7, and crochet 19 chains, and now work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of the next 15 ch, 1 dc in each of the dc from A.7, and finish with 1 dc in each of the remaining chains = 57 dc. Happy crocheting!

Sarah 23.07.2019 - 22:37:

I am working on round 3 of A.3 for size S/M. So the "armhole round". For the round deviation instructions, it states that: "...1 dc in next 5 dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc, 26 ch, skip 26 dc,...". Can you clarify this for me?

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 10:05:

Dear Sarah, you work 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc increasing 1 dc at the same time, ie you will have 6 dc over the 5 dc from previous round, then crochet 26 chains for the first armhole, skip the next 26 sts and finish with 1 sl in the 3rd ch from beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Linda Brittin 16.06.2019 - 01:29:

Hello I am not very good at reading pattern charts, however, I have found a tutorial for this pattern on YouTube. But it is in a foreign language. Is there an English tutorial on YouTube as well please? Many thanks

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 07:53:

Dear Mrs Brittin, you will find how to read crochet diagrams here. Happy crocheting!

Rita 20.05.2019 - 07:37:

Hi, Sorry to bother you. I have problem with the armhole because does it really need 28 dc on the chain 28? I do not really understand this part. Thank you for answering.

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 13:03:

Dear Rita, in size L/XL on 4th round in A.3 crochet 28 chains and skip 28 dc for armholes, then on next round (= round 5 in A.3), crochet the 28 chains as follows: * 1 dc in each of the first ch 6, 2 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* 3 more times (= 8 sts x 4 = 32 sts). Happy crocheting!

Dear Mrs Phillips, could you please give us more information about the page? maybe even contact us via Facebook? Thank you!

Sue Graygoose 16.02.2019 - 17:10:

When doing a3. Do I repeat round 4 for the armholes in size L/XL or is round 4 replaced by the deviated for armholes?

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 09:45:

Dear Mrs Graygoose, for the armhole, work round 4 in A.3 as explained in the written pattern, not as shown in the diagram. Then work A.5 also as explained in the written pattern. Now repeat A.3 as shown in diagram. Happy crocheting!

Mildred Top 26.01.2019 - 17:33:

Het cirkelvest haak ik met Sky, met haaknaald 4 krijg ik 14 stokjes,op 10 cm zoals het proeflapje aangaf. Na a2 heb ik echter i.p.v. ongeveer 28 cm, slechts 25:cm doorsnee. Kan ik i.p.v. maat L/XL nu de grootste maat nemen omdat alles kennelijk toch kleiner wordt ? Een grotere haaknaald zou het werk veel te los gaan maken. Dank voor uw advies.

DROPS Design 27.01.2019 kl. 13:29:

Dag Mildred,

Heb je de stekenverhouding in de hoogte ook gecontroleerd? Omdat je in een cirkel haakt is het belangrijk dat de stekenverhouding zowel in de breedte als in de hoogte klopt. (anders zou de cirkel ook gaan bobbelen of (in jouw geval) juist bol gaan staan); een grotere maat nemen is in dit geval niet de oplossing.

Sue Graygoose 22.01.2019 - 16:11:

If I start each row with 3 chain I’m I correct in that I would end up with a double stitch at the end of the row. Surely this would not give a seamless finish when working in the round. Surely working in the round is to give a seemingly endless run, so visually there is no beginning or end. Pattern me-080 can you confirm that there is a double stitch ie 3ch and a treble sitting next to each other x

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 08:28:

Dear Mrs Graygoose, I'm sorry I'm not sure what you are calling a double stitch, the first stitch at the beg of rounds is shown in diagram (= 8th symbol and 14th symbol), but feel free to start the round any other way if your rather. Happy crocheting!
