CROCHET INFO:
On every dc round/row replace first dc with 4 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch at beg of round.


PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

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

DECREASE TIP CH-SPACES:
Dec 1 ch-space at beg of row as follows seen from RS: Work ch 2, skip the first ch-space, work 1 dc around next ch-space. On next row skip the last ch-space seen from WS (= first ch-space seen from RS).

Dec 1 ch-space at end of row as follows seen from RS: Work until 1 ch-space remains, ch 2, skip the last ch-space, work 1 st in each of the remaining sts. On next row skip the first ch-space, work ch 2, and 1 dc around next ch-space seen from WS (= last ch-space seen from RS).
----------------------------------------------------------

TUNIC:
Worked in the round, bottom up, then divide the piece into front piece and back piece and work back and forth up to shoulder. Work an edge at the bottom of with mesh pattern at the end. Beg of round = in the right side.

Work 195-205-223-242-270-289 loose ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Belle and form a ring with 1 sl st. Work 4 ch – see CROCHET INFO! Then work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 6-2-6-4-4-2 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 26-28-30-33-37-40 more times = 168-176-192-208-232-248 dc + 4 ch at beg of round. Continue in the round with 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 5-5-6-6-7-7 cm / 2''-2''-2 3/8''-2 3/8''-2 3/4''-2 3/4''. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Now work pattern from 2nd round in diagram A.1 (= 8 dc) 21-22-24-26-29-31 times on round. NOTE: A.2 shows how round beg and ends. On last row in diagram dec 32 dc evenly in all sizes - READ DECREASE TIP = 136-144-160-176-200-216 dc + 4 ch at beg of round. Continue with 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 25-25-26-26-27-27 cm / 9 3/4"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10 1/4"-10½"-10½" vertically. Then work A.1 as before from 2nd round in diagram but now work 17-18-20-22-25-27 repetitions on round. NOTE: A.2 shows how round beg and ends. Finish before the last 2 rows in diagram A.1. Now work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc and adjust no of sts to 132-136-154-166-190-198 dc. Cut the yarn. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now divide piece in 2 for front and back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Skip 4-6-6-6-6-7 dc for armhole, work A.3 (= 8 dc), A.4 (= 3 dc) 16-16-19-21-25-26 times in width, work A.5 (= 6 dc) = 19-19-22-24-28-29 ch-spaces on first row. Continue as explained in the different sizes below:

SIZE S and M:
Continue back and forth with pattern as shown on 2nd and 3rd row in A.3 to A.5 until piece measures 14-15 cm / 5½"-6'' – adjust so that next row is worked as 3rd row.

SIZE L, XL, XXL and XXXL:
Continue back and forth with pattern as shown on 2nd and 3rd row in A.3 to A.5, AT THE SAME TIME on next row bind off for armhole in each side inside 3 sts - READ DECREASE TIP CH-SPACES. NOTE: Work 3 tr instead of 3 dc in each side on the rows with dec (this is done to avoid tight edges). Repeat dec 0-1-2-2 more times (= 1-2-3-3 dec in total in each side) = 20-20-22-23 ch-spaces remain. Then continue with ch-spaces as shown on 2nd and 3rd row in diagram A.3 to A.5 until piece measures 16-17-18-19 cm / 6 1/4"-6 3/4"-7"-7½" – adjust so that next row is worked as 3rd row.

Then continue as explained below in all sizes:
Work 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc and 4-4-4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch), work 1 dc in next dc, then work 24-24-26-26-26-28 dc evenly over the next 10-10-11-11-11-12 ch-spaces from previous row, work 1 dc in next dc, and 1 dc around next ch-space, continue with 4-4-4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch) and 1 dc in each of the outermost 3 dc. There are now 26-26-28-28-28-30 dc consecutively in the middle of back piece.
Then finish each shoulder separately. Turn and work as before over the first 4-4-4-4-5-5 ch-spaces, work 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc of the 26-26-28-28-28-30 dc. Turn and work 16-16-16-16-19-19 dc evenly on shoulder. Fasten off.
Work the other shoulder the same way but reversed. Beg at the armhole, and work 1 dc in each of the outermost 3 dc, then work ch-spaces as before over the 4-4-4-4-5-5 ch-spaces, and 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc. Turn and work 16-16-16-16-19-19 dc evenly over shoulder. Fasten off.

FRONT PIECE:
Skip 4-6-6-6-6-7 dc for armhole. Work A.3 (= 8 dc), A.4 (= 3 dc) 16-16-19-21-25-26 times in width, work A.5 = 19-19-22-24-28-29 ch-spaces on first row and 4-6-6-6-6-7 dc remain until beg on back piece. Continue as explained in the different sizes below:

SIZE S and M:
Continue back and forth with 2nd and 3rd row in A.3 to A.5 until 5 rows have been worked in both sizes. Now work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc and 4-4 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch), work 1 dc in next dc, then work 24-24 dc evenly over the next 10-10 ch-spaces, work 1 dc in next dc, and 1 dc around next ch-space, continue with 4-4 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch) and 1 dc in each of the outermost 3 dc = 26-26 dc for neck in the middle of front piece.

SIZE L, XL, XXL, XXXL:
Continue back and forth with 2nd and 3rd row in A.3 to A.5, AT THE SAME TIME on next row bind off for armhole in each side as on back piece and when 5 rows with ch-spaces have been worked, work dc for neck in the middle of front piece as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc and 4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch), work 1 dc in next dc, then work 26-26-26-28 dc evenly over the next 11-11-11-12 ch-spaces from previous row, work 1 dc in next dc, and 1 dc around next ch-space, continue with 4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch) and 1 dc in each of the outermost 3 dc = 28-28-28-30 dc for neck in the middle of front piece.

Now continue as explained below in all sizes:
Then finish each shoulder separately. Turn and work ch-spaces as before over the first 4-4-4-4-5-5 ch-spaces, work 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc of the 26-26-28-28-28-30 dc. Turn and continue like this with ch-spaces and 3 dc in each side until piece measures 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½''-8''-8¼''. Turn and work 16-16-16-16-19-19 dc evenly over shoulder. Fasten off.
Work the other shoulder the same way but reversed. I.e. beg at the armhole.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams tog. Sew one and one stitch neatly tog and make sure to avoid a tight seam. Fasten off.

EDGE AT THE BOTTOM:
Now work an edge at the bottom of tunic as follows:
ROUND 1: Fasten yarn with 1 sc and 3 ch at beg of round. * ch 2, skip approx. 1½ cm / ½'', 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = approx. 71-73-80-87-97-104 ch-spaces on round.
ROUND 2: Work sl sts until first ch-space. Then work as follows: work ch 3, * ch 2, 1 dc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* around the entire round but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round. Repeat 2nd round until piece measures 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8'' in total (measured from shoulder) or to desired length. Fasten off.

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 167-18) 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.

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.

Sorry voor mijn vraag....heeft zich al opgelost

Hennie Koopman 05.07.2019 - 17:45:

Ik wil maat L maken. Er staat...begin met 4 lossen....dan stk in elk van de volgende 6 lossen = 6 stk. Dan losse overslaan en 6 stk in volgende 6 lossen 30x= 180 stk. Ik kom op 186 stk plus 4 lossen. Jullie geven aan 192 stk. Volgend probleem 192 stk en 4 beginlossen is 193 stk. Voor de eerste toer A1 (hokjes met 1 losse ertussen) Betekent bij 193 stk dat je eindigt met 1 stk terwijl je de toer ook begonnen bent met 1 stk. Je moet toch eindigen met 1 losse? Hoeveel hokjes telt toer 1 bij maat L

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 10:54:

Dag Hennie,

Het gedeelte tussen *_* wordt in totaal 31 keer gedaan, want er staat 'herhaal nog 30 keer, daardoor kom je op 192 stokjes. De 4 beginlossen worden niet meegerekend in het totaal aantal stokjes. A.1 gaat over 8 steken, deze herhaal je in totaal 24 keer. Daarnaast haak je A.2, deze komen boven de eerste 4 lossen (dus het 193e 'stokje')

Pat 16.05.2019 - 00:55:

I am starting the back section. I read the answer to a previous question about the back but I do not understand on the section of the back piece where it says to work A.5 then it has 19-29 chain spaces on first row. The chart does not show chain spaces until the second row, is there I am supposed to start? I love your patterns but they are sometimes hard to follow.

DROPS Design 16.05.2019 kl. 09:40:

Dear Pat, when working A.3 you will have 2 ch-spaces (= 2 chains 2 times), then when repeating A.4 16-26 times in width you will have 16-26 times 2 chains and finishing row with A.5 you will have 1 chain-space (= 2 chains), so that there are 2 +16-26 + 1 = 19-29 ch-spaces (= 2 chains) at the end of this row. Happy crocheting!

Dawn 07.03.2018 - 02:11:

I am starting the back A3,4,5. I am stuck. Can you please explain more detail how to do this? Thank you!

Dear Dawn, on back piece, start skipping 4-6-7 sts for armhole (see size), then crochet A.3 over the next 8 sts, repeat A.4 (= 3 sts) a total of 16-26 times in width and finish with A.5 (= 6 sts), there will be 4-6-7 sts unworked at the end of row for armhole. Start reading diagram from RS with the 2nd row in diagram (= 1st row in A.3,4,5 - the one with a star is the previous row), repeeat A.4 in width ans finish with A.5; turn and work row 2: A.5, repeat A.4 and finish with A.3. Happy crocheting!

I'm confused with A1 and A2. The diagram chart with the pattern is different than the video A1 and A2. Can you please explain further? Thank you.

Dear Dawn, in the video this pattern is worked back and forth, but you will work A.2 the same way, start with A.2 (= 1st st on round), then repeat A.1 in the round (= in the video this part is diagram A.2), we show in the video how to work A.2 = time code 1:19 for row 1. Just repeat this section in the round (= A.1 for the tunic) reading diagram always from the right towards the left. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour! J'ai une question concernant la première diminution d'emmanchures: faut-il diminuer (sauter) 2 fois 6 brides de chaque côté du DOS et de chaque côté du DEVANT càdire 24 brides au total ou seulement 12 brides au total? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse et merci pour tous vos jolis modèles.

Bonjour Marie, on saute d'abord 6 B pour les emmanchures du dos (en taille XXL) et on crochète A.3, A.4 et A.5 puis on continue en crochetant les rangs 2 et 3 de A.3 à A.5 en diminuant 2 fois à 3 m des bords comme indiqué sous DIMINUTIONS ARCEAUX = il reste 22 arceaux. Bon crochet!

Just viewed your video, the chart being used does not appear to be with the printed pattern, have I over looked it, or is it an combination of chart A.1 to A.5 ? Thank you

Dear Mrs Walter, the video below shows how to work similar diagrams in the jacket 167-19 - when working the tunic, you will have to work A.2 as in diagram to this pattern (beg and end of rounds) then work A.1 as shown in A.2 in the video to the jacket. Happy crocheting!
