YOKE:
Worked in the round, top down, beg mid back. Work 128-138-138-163-168-173 ch on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Cotton Merino and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work next round as follows: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc) - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 dc in first ch from ch-ring, 1 dc in each of the next ch 2, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 104-112-112-132-136-140 dc. On next round, inc 16-20-20-24-44-52 dc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 120-132-132-156-180-192 dc.

Continue to work as follows: Work A.1 over the first 6 dc, A.2 over the next 12-12-12-18-24-24 dc (= 2-2-2-3-4-4 times in total), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times in total), A.2 over the next 6-6-6-12-12-12 dc (= 1-1-1-2-2-2 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the next 30-36-36-42-54-60 dc (= 5-6-6-7-9-10 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the next 6-6-6-12-12-12 dc (= 1-1-1-2-2-2 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the last 12-18-18-18-24-30 dc (= 2-3-3-3-4-5 times). NOTE: In size S+XL+XXL beg round a little towards one side so that pattern fits. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1/A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically, repeat them upwards.

When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 240-252-292-316-340-352 dc on round. Piece measures approx. 18-18-20-20-22-22 cm / 7"-7"-8"-8"-8 3/4"-8 3/4" (measured from neck edge).

Now work as follows (= 6th round in A.1/A.2): Work 1 dc in each of the first 39-39-44-50-56-56 dc (= half back piece), work 6-6-8-8-8-8 ch, skip 48-48-58-64-64-64 dc (= armhole), work 1 dc in each of the next 72-78-88-94-106-112 dc (= front piece), work 6-6-8-8-8-8 ch, skip 48-48-58-64-64-64 dc (= armhole), work 1 dc in each of the last 33-39-44-44-50-56 dc = 144-156-176-188-212-224 dc and 6-6-8-8-8-8 ch in each side of piece (= 156-168-192-204-228-240 sts in total). Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.

Work next round as follows (= 7th round in A.1/A.2): Work A.1 1 time, then work A.2 over the remaining 150-162-186-198-222-234 dc/ch (= 25-27-31-33-37-39 times in total in width). Continue working the pattern vertically. AT THE SAME TIME on round with arrow in diagram inc 12 dc evenly (i.e. work 2 dc in every 13th-14th-16th-17th-19th-20th dc) = 168-180-204-216-240-252 dc. Repeat A.2 2 times more in width. Repeat inc every 10 cm / 4'', adjust to inc on a round with dc, 3 more times = 204-216-240-252-276-288 dc. For every inc, repeat A.2 2 times more in width. After last inc, repeat A.2 33-35-39-41-45-47 times in total in width. When piece measures approx. 44-46-46-48-48-50 cm / 17 1/4"-18"-18"-19"-19"-19 3/4" (from marker) – adjust so that last round is a round with dc, work A.y 3 times in total vertically. Then work A.z 1 time vertically. Piece measures approx. 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' in total from neck edge. Fasten off.

: Work A.1 over the first 6 dc, A.2 over the next 12-12-12-18-24-24 dc (= 2-2-2-3-4-4 times in total), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times in total), A.2 over the next 6-6-6-12-12-12 dc (= 1-1-1-2-2-2 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), ............... A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the last 12-18-18-18-24-30 dc (= 2-3-3-3-4-5 times) After above round how many stitches should i have for xl.

DROPS Design 28.09.2017 kl. 17:22:

Dear Irma, after this round, you will still have 156 sts in XL,ie as before since you work 1 st in the st from previous row, see diagram. Happy crocheting!

Afshan Raheel 27.09.2017 - 18:43:

How many stitches after row 2?

DROPS Design 28.09.2017 kl. 09:31:

Dear Mrs Afsha, after row 1 you will have the same number of sts as you will not increase in row 1 - It can be a good idea to insert a marker between each repetition so that you can easily follow your work and the diagram. Happy crocheting!

Afsha Raheel 27.09.2017 - 18:22:

Plz help me with 2nd row of yoke. It will be double crochet in each stich ? If we do not divide in a1 a2 a3? And 3rd row. What is above a1 6 dc? If its according to diagram then what does row 2 mentions a2 4 time a3 2 time????

DROPS Design 28.09.2017 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Afsha, on 2nd round on yoke you will work 1st row in each diagram as stated, ie in the 2 larger sizes you will work 2nd round as follows: A.1 over the first 6dc, A.2 over the next 24dc (= 4times in total = repeat 4 times in width row 1 in A.2)), A.3 over the next 12dc (= 2times in total), A.2 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the next 54-60 dc (= 9-10 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.3 over the next 12 dc (= 2 times), A.2 over the last 24-30 dc (= 4-5 times). Happy crocheting!

Asraa 30.08.2017 - 19:22:

Hi. I have just completed A3 and the 5th rounds of A1 and A2 for the size medium. However the count of my tr stitches is only 196.If I count the chain stitches in between then the stitch count goes well over 252. However if I apply some mathematics and get the stitch by multiplying the number of tr stitches in each mode (A1,A2,A3) by the number of times they are repeated it comes out as 196= 2 (for A1) +26(for A2) +168(for A3). Kindly help me with this.

DROPS Design 31.08.2017 kl. 06:12:

Dear Asraa, by the time you finish the last row of pattern A.3 you should have the following stitch counts: A.1 (6 sts), A.2 (12 sts), A.3 (2 x 21= 42 sts), A.2 (6 sts), A.3 (42 sts), A.2 (36 sts), A.3 (42 sts), A.2 (6 sts), A.3 (42 sts) A.2 (18 sts) that adds up to 252 sts, hich is the number of stitches you have to continue to work with. I hope this helps. Happy Crocheting!

Asraa 28.08.2017 - 17:59:

Hi. I have just started this pattern and I am a bit confused in the 3rd round for the yoke. It says to work A1 in the first 6 trebles. Am I supposed to the entire A1 as is showed in the diagram i.e. the entire vertical line? Or am I supposed to do the first rows of each A1, A2 and A3 for this round and then proceed to the next rows in the upcoming rounds?

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 09:05:

Dear Asraa, work the first row in A.1 over the firt 6 tr, then work first row of A.2, A.3 etc.. on same row, you will work diagrams row by row. Happy crocheting!

Mai Kruse 06.07.2017 - 00:00:

Hejsa, jeg er netop blevet færdig med A1 og A2 i højden. Nu skal jeg færdiggøre A3 i højden og fortsætte forfra med A1 og A2. Men så vil mønstret jo ikke gå op? Mvh mai

DROPS Design 12.07.2017 kl. 14:07:

Hej Mai, jo du fortsætter alle 3 diagrammer, det er samme mønter hele vejen rundt, men A.3 viser hvordan du tager ud. God fornøjelse!

Sunny 23.03.2017 - 15:41:

Hello, I am at the body part, size M. What is it mean by "Repeat A.2 2 times more in width"? does it mean to do 2 rows of A.2? or A.2 needs to be done twice for every A.2 pattern by looking at the beginning of the YOKE (A.1, A.2, and A.3 are listed) thank you!

DROPS Design 23.03.2017 kl. 16:17:

Dear Sunny, you have just inc 12 sts evenly, and A.2 = 6 sts in width, so that you have now enough room to work 2 more repeats of A.2 in width over the 180 sts = work A.1 1 time in width, then repeat A.2 29 times in total in width = 180 sts. Happy crocheting!

Darlene Wick 07.08.2016 - 04:56:

Hi, Iam having trouble with this pattern. I have done every row like it says but where I get confused is It says after you do A.3 you are supposed to have 252 sts. then it tells you on row 6 to do the arm part. Well Am I supposed to do A1 and A.2 all the way and then do A.3. Be cause if I do there will be to many sts. Please help me.

DROPS Design 08.08.2016 kl. 09:42:

Dear Mrs Wick, when you have crocheted A.1 and A.2 1 time in height repeat these both diagrams in height while continuing crocheting A.3. So that when A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, next row will be row 6 in A.1 and A.2. Happy crocheting!

Sandra Karinsdotter 28.07.2016 - 22:30:

Fin modell, men skulle vilja virka den med betydligt djupare och vidare urringning, så att "ärmarna" hasar ner lite, och sedan virka fast två snoddar som löper över axlarna och håller klänningen uppe = en bit av axeln lämnas bar. Förstår att det borde funka om jag börjar virka "en bit in i mönstret", men har svårt att beräkna på vilket ställe det isf är lämpligt att börja, och hur många fler maskor jag då borde starta med, i stl S?

DROPS Design 22.12.2016 kl. 09:44:

Hej Sandra, Du kan fråga om hjälp till at räkna om mönstret om du går till DROPS butiken där du har köpt garnet. Vi har inte möjlighet at ändra på våra mönster. Lycka till!

Michelle 30.06.2016 - 07:55:

Hej. Jeg forstår ikke række 4/5 i diagram A1 og a2. Man skal hækle stangmasker i luftmasker, (ovenover de to fastmasker.) men kan ikke se hvor de to luftmasker kommer fra. Skal de laves i mellem de 2 fastmasker??

DROPS Design 10.11.2016 kl. 16:21:

Hej Michelle. Du har lavet de to luftmasker i omg för mellem de to fastmasker.
