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. Work the same way in the other side.

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.

I got interested in this watching the video that shows the 1st 3 rounds. But when I tried to match up the written pattern with the video I got confused. I noticed that in round 3 of the written pattern there are increases. The video shows no increases. I would suggest changing the video to reflect the actual pattern so it won't confuse people.

DROPS Design 13.06.2019 kl. 09:29:

Dear Diane, the video shows only how to start and change colors, but remember to always follow the pattern and the diagram at the same time, ie increase as explained in the written pattern. Happy crocheting!

Connie 17.05.2019 - 21:14:

I would like to buy the pattern trough P D F so i understand better can i pls ?

DROPS Design 18.05.2019 kl. 19:53:

Hi Connie, all our patterns are available for free. You can save it as PDF from your printer's printing screen, available from the print button in the pattern.

Mary 07.05.2019 - 21:20:

Hi, Could you clarify the stitches in the first round for me please? I wanted to follow the US instructs as that's how I learned to crochet from videos. I am new to trying to read a pattern. The first round says chain 1, 1 single, 2 half double, 2 double, then it says 2 tr, which I think is a UK abbreviation. So do the US instructions switch to U.K. Abbreviations occasionally during the pattern? Thank you

DROPS Design 08.05.2019 kl. 08:01:

Dear Mary, the treble crochet in US-English is called a double treble crochet in UK-English - read more here. Happy crocheting!

Er det meningen at cirklen skal kunne ligge fladt? Jeg har været nødt til at hækle to ekstra omgange for at få 20cm i diameter før ærmerne i str s. Så jeg har mere end de 112 dbstm men det tænker jeg at jeg må kompensere for, jeg har ikke kunnet få fastheden til at passe. Jeg har taget ud hver gang efter samme systematik med en dbstm mere mellem hustagene men cirklen flaner mere og mere.

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 11:15:

Hej Susanne, ja cirklen skal kunne ligge fladt... Hækler du i DROPS Big Delight og DROPS Karisma?

Pat 27.03.2019 - 19:59:

Well this is going to be interesting..first one of these i'll be doing..suggestion...it would be helpful if you could give total yarn needed in yardage of some measurement....wish me luck...lol...gonna need it

Connie Tissue 12.02.2019 - 04:45:

Love this pattern very much cannot wait to see if I can do it or not thank you for sharing it with us all connie

Vicki 17.01.2019 - 10:25:

How many triple crochets are there in the round after adding the chain for the armholes in the size small? It can't be 126 if there were 224 before the armhole round.

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 15:18:

Dear Vicki, before armhole, there are 112 triple crochets + 112 chains (= 224 sts in total) on next round working chains for armhole, you don't increase, then on round after armhole you increase as before 14 triple crochets = 112-14= 126 triple crochets + 126 chains (= 252 sts in total). Happy crocheting!

Vicki 17.01.2019 - 04:35:

Am I supposed to have a total of 112 or 224 triple crochets for a size small before starting the round for armholes? Then how do I get to a total of 126 triple crochets for the round after doing the chains for the armholes? I'm not switching to different colors.

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 09:33:

Dear Vicky, you should have 112 triple crochets + 112 chains = 224 stitches in the round before starting the armholes in size S. In 3rd and 4th size, you continue working as before until you get 126 triple crochets + 126 chains. Happy crocheting!

Elizabthe 07.11.2018 - 17:18:

Hej jeg sidder og er igang med ærmet (jeg har styr på ærmegabet) jeg skal lave 40 dbl-st rundt (str l) er det muligt at se et billede eller et diagram over Det? Jeg syntes ikke rigtigt det kommer til at passe ordenligt 😉

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 09:07:

Hej Elizabthe, Det har vi ikke, men hvis du deler ærmet op i 4 og så hækle 10 dbl-st i hver del... så bliver de jævnt fordelt. God fornøjelse!

Ingrid Coevert 23.10.2018 - 09:58:

In toer 5 ben ik met beide kleuren tegenover elkaar geëindigd. Nu word toer 6 beschreven als een gehele cirkel qua steken. Ook al doe ik de helft, dan kom ik nog niet uit terwijl ik wel de goede hoeveelheid steken heb ik toer 5. Wat ik nu heb gedaan is dus half om half. Dus het ene armsgat is met kleur a, het andere met kleur b. Maar hoe moet ik verder gaan aangezien er weer een volledige cirkel word beschreven.
