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

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 tr by working the next 2 tr tog as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next tr 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 with Merino Extra Fine or Sky 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 tr in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr in back loop of every tr = 24 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 tr in back loop of first/next tr, 1 tr in back loop of next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 tr. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

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 tr 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 tr and 24 ch on round (= 120 sts in total). Piece measures approx. 28 cm 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 in diameter), there are 156-168-192 sts on round (= 156-168-96 tr 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 tr on this round are worked in back loop of tr): Work 3 ch, * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 8 tr *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, 26 ch, skip 26 tr (= armhole), repeat from *-* 6 times in total, 1 tr in each of the next 5 tr AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr, 26 ch, skip 26 tr (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 116 tr (= 26 ch for each sleeve, 168 sts in total).
Work 4th round in A.3 as follows (all tr worked in tr, are worked in back loop on this round): Work 3 ch, ** 1 tr in first/next tr/ch, 1 ch, * 1 tr in next tr/ch, 1 ch, skip 1 tr/ch *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, 1 tr in next tr/ch, 1 ch, 1 tr in next tr/ch, 1 ch, skip 1 tr/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 tr 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 tr on round. Then work A.4 24 times in total on round.

Over ch-space for each sleeve work as follows: Work * 1 tr in each of the first 6 ch, 2 tr in next ch *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 192 tr. Continue working diagram A.3. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 192 tr 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 tr worked in tr, are worked in back loop on this round): Work 3 ch, * 1 tr in first/next tr, 1 tr around next ch *, repeat from *-* 24 more times, 1 tr in next tr, 30 ch, skip 15 tr and 15 ch (= 30 sts in total) for armhole, * work 1 tr around next ch, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* 39 more times, 1 tr around next ch, 30 ch, skip the last 15 tr and 15 ch (= armhole), finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 132 tr and 30 ch for each sleeve (= 192 sts in total).

I read what you said about the sleeve but im still confused. where do you start doing the double stitches for the sleeve, is it on the chain you make , or do i chain from a7, or what ? help pleaseeeeee.

DROPS Design 06.09.2019 kl. 08:24:

Dear Sandra, sleeves are worked separately from body; you first crochet A.7 = 3 chains, 1 sl st in 1st ch then work back and forth following diagram: on 1st row you work 7 dc in the chain-ring, then on 2nd row you work (2 dc in 1st dc, 1 dc in next dc) x 3 and finish with 2 dc in last dc, continue like this working A.7 back and forth. Happy crocheting!

Sandra 01.09.2019 - 21:46:

When do you start working under the sleeve whole section

DROPS Design 02.09.2019 kl. 11:02:

Dear Sandra, I'm afraid I don't get your question here. Sleeves are worked separately from body (circle) back and forth with a seam. For the section after armhole (chains) have been worked, see previous answers. Happy crocheting!

Sandra 31.08.2019 - 21:04:

Does a4 go under arm hole or over?

DROPS Design 02.09.2019 kl. 10:16:

Dear Sandra, you will work A.4 over the last row in A.3 = in the stitches from A.3 + in the chain-spaces for amrholes (so that there are 2 holes for each sleeve). Happy crocheting!

Sandra 30.08.2019 - 18:00:

Ok I am having issues with the last part of the xxl size chart. It says to work a4 24 times but the arm holes are on that row. So what do I do?

DROPS Design 02.09.2019 kl. 08:29:

Dear Sandra, you work the 5th row in A.3 shaping the armholes at the same time, then on next round, work A.4, ie repeat diagram a total of 24 times in width in the round , ie in the stitches from 5th row on A.3 as well as over the ch-spaces for the armholes = there are 48 ch-spaces in total at the end of 1st row in A.4. Work A.4 1 time in height. Happy crocheting!

Sandra 30.08.2019 - 16:47:

But there are no spaces in the last row of a3 ?

Sandra 30.08.2019 kl. 17:54:

Never mind i figured out

Sandra 29.08.2019 - 23:56:

I am having trouble understanding the round when you start doing size for arm hole for the xxxl it is confusing. Is there away to understanding it better?

DROPS Design 30.08.2019 kl. 09:39:

Dear Sandra, work the 5th row in A.3 as explained in the written pattern: work from *-* a total of 25 times, then 1 st in next st, chain 30 and skip the next 15 sts+15 chains (= hole for the sleeve), work from *-* a total of 40 times, 1 st in next chain, repeat armhole = 30 ch, skip next 15 sts + 15 chains and finish round wiht 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. On next round you will repeat A.4 a total of 24 times in width, crocheting in the stitches from A.3 as well as in the chains. Happy crocheting!

Sandra 27.08.2019 - 23:11:

Is there a written version somewhere. I don't understand the diagram pattern.

DROPS Design 28.08.2019 kl. 08:55:

Dear Sandra, there are only diagrams to this pattern, you will find here how to read crochet diagrams. Happy crocheting!

Rina 26.08.2019 - 17:35:

How can I contact a store and show them? I bought my yarn from Lindehobby do I send them pictures of my project and show them?

DROPS Design 27.08.2019 kl. 09:02:

Dear Rina, yes, you can send them pictures per mail this might help them to help you showing your work, it will be easier for them to find a solution seeing your sleeves. Happy crocheting!

Rina 26.08.2019 - 15:28:

Hi, When I finished both sleeves and tried to sew them into the arm hole circle the left one looks ok but the right one has the 3 chain line (the 3 chain starter I mean) in front which looks a bit odd I think it should be at the back. Are both left and right arm start the same way when joining with the cap? I am not sure what to do as I followed exactly and it came out nice on the left arm. It's just the right arm that looks like it's done the other way.

DROPS Design 26.08.2019 kl. 16:20:

Dear Rita, sleeves should be both the same, not sure how far we can help - you can maybe try to sew them so that there is no difference between both? Do not hesitate to show your store your work (even per mail), they might find the best solution looking at your pieces. Happy crocheting!

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!
