Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. 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.
DECREASE TIP:
2 tr tog into 1 tr as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 tr in next st but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.

CROCHET TIP:
Replace first tr on round with 4 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in fourth ch from beg of round.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring) use Big Delight: Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work ch 1, then work around the loop as follows:
ROUND 1: ch 1, 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 2 tr. Insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and place yarn aside. Switch to Karisma and work as follows in loop: 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 2 tr. Pull the yarn end to tighten loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

ROUND 2: (Continue with Karisma). Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the first 7 sts (= 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc and 2 tr worked with Big Delight). Insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and place yarn aside. Continue with Big Delight. Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7 sts (= 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc and 2 tr worked with Karisma) = 14 tr + 14 ch.
ROUND 3: (Continue with Big Delight.) Work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the first 7 tr, insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and put yarn aside. Continue with Karisma, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7 tr = 28 tr + 28 ch.
ROUND 4: (Continue with Karisma). * Work 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr *, repeat from *-* 7 times. Insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and place yarn aside. Continue with Big Delight. * Work 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr *, repeat from *-* 7 times = 42 tr + 42 ch.
ROUND 5: (Continue with Big Delight.) * Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 2 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr *, repeat from *-* 7 times. Insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and place yarn aside. Continue with Karisma. * Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 2 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in the next tr *, repeat from *-* 7 times = 56 tr + 56 ch.

Repeat 4th and 5th round but on every round work 1 tr + 1 ch more between every inc = 14 tr + 14 ch inc on every round. Continue until there are 112-112-126-126-140-140 tr + 112-112-126-126-140-140 ch on round, circle measures approx. 20-20-23-23-25-25 cm / 8"-8"-9"-9"-9 3/4"-9 3/4" from middle (= 40-40-46-46-50-50 cm / 15 3/4"-15 3/4"-18"-18"-19 3/4"-19 3/4" in diameter).

Work next round as follows: (Continue with spiral and color change but without inc.) Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the first 16-16-18-18-20-20 tr, work 24-24-28-28-32-32 loose ch for armhole, skip the next 16-16-18-18-20-20 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch in every tr until 32-32-36-36-40-40 tr remain on round, work 24-24-28-28-32-32 loose ch for armhole, skip the next 16-16-18-18-20-20 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the last 16-16-18-18-20-20 tr.

Work next round as follows:
* Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7-7-8-8-9-9 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in next tr *, repeat from *-* 2 times, work 18-18-20-20-22-22 tr with 1 ch between each around ch-space, * work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7-7-8-8-9-9 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in next tr *, repeat from *-* 3 times. Insert 1 stitch marker in loop on last tr so that it does not unravel and place yarn aside. Switch yarn. * Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7-7-8-8-9-9 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in next tr *, repeat from *-* 3 times, work 18-18-20-20-22-22 tr with 1 ch between each around ch-space, * work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the next 7-7-8-8-9-9 tr, work 1 tr + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch in next tr *, repeat from *-* 2 times = 126-126-140-140-154-154 tr + ch on round.

Work as 4th and 5th round but on every round work 1 tr + 1 ch more between every inc = 14 tr + 14 ch inc on every round. Continue until circle measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm / 20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8'' from middle (= 104-108-112-116-120-124 cm / 41"-42½"-44"-45 3/4"-47 1/4"-48 3/4" in diameter, or desired measurements).

Finish circle as follows: Continue with the same yarn as last round. Work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, 1 dc in each of the next 2 tr, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 tr, 1 sc in next tr, 1 sl st in next tr, fasten off.

SLEEVES:
Work in the round from armhole and down. Use hook size 6 mm / J/10 and beg with opposite color of the one the last tr around armholes was worked with. Work stripes, i.e. work 1 round with Karisma and 1 round with Big Delight - READ CROCHET TIP.

Work 36-38-40-42-44-46 tr around the opening for sleeve, beg of round should be under sleeve. Then work 3 rounds with 1 tr in every tr. Continue with 1 tr in every tr - AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 tr mid under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 8 cm / 3 1/8'' 6 more times = 22-24-26-28-30-32 tr. Continue to work until sleeve measures 54-55-54-55-54-55 cm / 21 1/4"-21½"-21 1/4"-21½"-21 1/4"-21½". Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS 165-40) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

Click here to see our yarn converter

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder (usually closest to the neckline), and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

Endnu en gang svarer I ikke på det, jeg faktisk spørger om... Hvor placerer jeg de 36? Og hvordan med skift af farve. De 36 skal jo laves med en og samme farve. Derefter ny farve en omgang osv. Er der nogen smart måde at gøre dette, eller skal jeg klippe garnet efter hver omgang? I må meget gerne svare på det, jeg spørger om denne gang. Mange tak.

user icon DROPS Design 04.02.2021 kl. 14:32:

Hej Malou, de 36 masker skal fordeles jævnt, det vil sige 18 masker på hver "side". Hvis du starter omgangen under ærmet, så kan du trække tråden med op til næste række, så behøver du ikke klippe tråden. Vi har også en video som viser hvordan man skifter farve / hækler striber :)

Jeg skal til at hækle ærmerne, men jeg er i tvivl om hvordan jeg gør. Det er str s. Jeg har 16 dbl-st (18 med dem i hjørnerne). På siden tættest mod midten, 1 RK i højde, 18 dbl-st (20 med hjørnerne) på rækken ved luftmaskerne. Hvor skal jeg placere de 36? Og skal alle være med en farve? Hvordan skifter jeg farve? Er det ved at klippe garnet hele tiden, hæfte, starte ny farve, klippe, hæfte osv?

Hej Malou, du hækler de 36 masker hele vejen rundt i ærmegabet (på samme måde som du hele tiden har gjort). Du skifter farve for hver omgang :)

Nach der 5. Runde steht in der Anleitung die 4. und 5. Runde fortlaufend wiederholen - heißt das ich arbeite jede Runde wieder 7x oder arbeite ich bis ich am Ende Runde bin ( ich würde dann nämlich bei der 1. Wiederholung der 4. Runde 14x arbeiten). 2te Frage: in jeder Runde ein D-Stb +1 Lm mehr zunehmen - bedeutet das wirklich nur mit einer Farbe ein D-Stb+1Lm oder mit beiden Farben - also 2 DStb+2lm/Runde

user icon DROPS Design 25.01.2021 kl. 09:42:

Liebe Eva, es wird wie zuvor gehäkelt: 1 Runde = 7 Mal mit jeder Wolle und gleichzeitig immer wie zuvor zunehmen, d.h. bei der 6. Runde (= wie 4. aber mit mehr Maschen zwischen Zunahmen): * je 1 D-Stb + 1 Lm in die 2 nächsten D-Stb, 1 D-Stb + 1 Lm + 1 D-Stb + 1 Lm in das nächste D-Stb *, von *-* insgesamt 7 x arb usw. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Liebe Eva, leider können wir nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen - vielleicht könnnen Sie mal jede Runde entweder Halb mit jeder Farbe hier, jeweils 1/3 mit jeder Farbe? hier zeigen wir mit 4 Farben. Am besten versuchen Sie mit einer Maschenprobe, wie Sie es machen können. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Hallo, ich habe die 4. Und 5. Runde wie in der Anleitung beschrieben weiter gehäkelt bis ich die 140 DStb habe. Die Maschenmakierer sind so jeweils gegenüberliegend. Jetzt kommen die Armausschnitte und ich verstehe nicht wie weiter. Ich fange also mit irgendeiner Farbe an und wann wechsel ich zu der anderen? Das steht da nicht. Oder muss jeder Schritt in der anderen Farbe gemacht werden? 20 DStb in Karisma und dann die LM mit Big Delight?

user icon DROPS Design 22.10.2020 kl. 10:22:

Liebe Petra, bei der nächsten Runde, weiter wie zuvor mit dem Farbwechsel häkeln, aber keine Zunahmen bei dieser nächsten Runden arbeiten: die ersten 20 D-Stb mit 1 Lm wie zuvor, dann 32 Lm häkeln und die nächsten 20 Stb überspringen (= 1. Armloch), weiter wie zuvor bis 40 D-Stb vor der Ende der Runde bleiben, 32 Lm häkeln und die nächsten 20 Stb überpsringen (= 2. Armloch) und die Runde enden (= 20 Dstb mit 1 Lm dazwischen). Farbe/Garne wechseln Sie wie zuvor, die Hälfte der Runde muss - wie zuvor- mit je einer Farbe/einem Garn gehäkelt werden. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

country flag Kathy Tier 28.09.2020 - 12:15:

Hi. Lovely pattern. I just wanted to check, this uses a combination of an aran weight & DK yarn, as the yarns don't look a different weight in the photos. Also, you are using a washable yarn with a hand-wash yarn. Can you suggest an alternative mix that is all washable? Thanks.

user icon DROPS Design 28.09.2020 kl. 12:40:

Dear Mrs Tier, this pattern is worked with 2 different kind of yarn to get the right result - we use here DROPS Big Delight to play with colours - if you like a superwash yarn group C you can use instead DROP Big Merino or 2 strands DROPS Fabel (to play with colours too), but remember that it will look different because fibers/yarns are different - read more about alternatives here - you can use the yarn converter to check the other suggested alternatives. Happy knitting!

I am stuck in the section were we are chaining in for the sleeves. I have 112 tr from the section before.And no matter what I do I end up with extra 16. I can't figure out were they go reading the instructions. Leave it for the front. Turn and start back or continue? Help confused!!!

Dear Kris, next round for armholes will be worked with the two yarns/colours as before but you won't increase on this round as you did before: Work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the first 16tr, work 24 loose ch for armhole, skip the next 16 tr (this create a hole for armhole), work 1 tr + 1 ch in every tr until 32 tr remain on round, work 24 loose ch for armhole, skip the next 16 tr (2nd hole for 2nd armhole), work 1 tr + 1 ch in each of the last 16 tr. On next round, work as before with both yarns and increasing as explained for this round. Happy crocheting!
