CROCHET INFO:
On every tr round/row replace first tr 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 tr by working the next 2 tr tog as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work next tr 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 2 ch, skip the first ch-space, work 1 tr 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, 2 ch, skip the last ch-space, work 1 st in each of the remaining sts. On next row skip the first ch-space, work 2 ch, and 1 tr 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 with Belle and form a ring with 1 sl st. Work 4 ch – see CROCHET INFO! Then work as follows: Work 1 tr in each of the first 6-2-6-4-4-2 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 26-28-30-33-37-40 more times = 168-176-192-208-232-248 tr + 4 ch at beg of round. Continue in the round with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 5-5-6-6-7-7 cm. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Now work pattern from 2nd round in diagram A.1 (= 8 tr) 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 tr evenly in all sizes - READ DECREASE TIP = 136-144-160-176-200-216 tr + 4 ch at beg of round. Continue with 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 25-25-26-26-27-27 cm 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 tr in every tr and adjust no of sts to 132-136-154-166-190-198 tr. 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 tr for armhole, work A.3 (= 8 tr), A.4 (= 3 tr) 16-16-19-21-25-26 times in width, work A.5 (= 6 tr) = 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 – 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 dec for armhole in each side inside 3 sts - READ DECREASE TIP CH-SPACES. NOTE: Work 3 dtr instead of 3 tr 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 – adjust so that next row is worked as 3rd row.

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

FRONT PIECE:
Skip 4-6-6-6-6-7 tr for armhole. Work A.3 (= 8 tr), A.4 (= 3 tr) 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 tr 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 tr in each of the first 3 tr and 4-4 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch), work 1 tr in next tr, then work 24-24 tr evenly over the next 10-10 ch-spaces, work 1 tr in next tr, and 1 tr around next ch-space, continue with 4-4 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch) and 1 tr in each of the outermost 3 tr = 26-26 tr 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 dec for armhole in each side as on back piece and when 5 rows with ch-spaces have been worked, work tr for neck in the middle of front piece as follows: Work 1 tr in each of the first 3 tr and 4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch), work 1 tr in next tr, then work 26-26-26-28 tr evenly over the next 11-11-11-12 ch-spaces from previous row, work 1 tr in next tr, and 1 tr around next ch-space, continue with 4-4-5-5 whole ch-spaces (i.e. ch-spaces with 2 ch) and 1 tr in each of the outermost 3 tr = 28-28-28-30 tr 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 tr in each of the first 3 tr of the 26-26-28-28-28-30 tr. Turn and continue like this with ch-spaces and 3 tr in each side until piece measures 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm. Turn and work 16-16-16-16-19-19 tr 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 dc and 3 ch at beg of round. * 2 ch, skip approx. 1½ cm, 1 tr *, 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 3 ch, * 2 ch, 1 tr 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 in total (measured from shoulder) or to desired length. Fasten off.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Updated online: 04.03.2016
Chart A.1.
Changes in the 4th round and 9th round. It should be: 1 dc in sts, not 1 dc around sts.

Diagram

= 1 ch
= 4 ch
= 1 dc around st
= 1 dc in st
= 1 tr in st
= 1 tr around ch/ch-space
= 1 triple tr
= Work 2 triple tr into 1 tr as follows: Work 1 triple tr but wait with last pull through = 2 sts on hook. Work 1 triple tr more in same st but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.
= this row is explained in pattern
= work in this st
= beg round with 4 ch, and finish round 1 sl st in 4th ch at beg of round
= beg round with 5 ch, and finish round with 1 sl st in 5th ch at beg of round
= beg round with 1 ch, and finish round 1 sl st in 1st ch on round
= crochet direction

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!

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 08:46:

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!

Dawn 27.02.2018 - 22:40:

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.

DROPS Design 28.02.2018 kl. 10:12:

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!

Marie 29.03.2017 - 14:30:

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.

DROPS Design 29.03.2017 kl. 15:13:

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!

Kate Walter 19.08.2016 - 18:48:

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

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 08:42:

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!

Maria Dalin 04.07.2016 - 14:56:

Jag fattar absolut ingenting av hur jag skall göra blomman eller krysset, eller vad man vill kalla det. otroligt otydlig beskrivning. Jag är mycket van att virka, men det här behöver jag hjälp med!

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 16:35:

Hej Maria. Har du set videoen hvordan du haekler den? Tror det nok hjaelper dig videre :-)

Joanna 13.06.2016 - 21:28:

Ik heb haaknaald 4 gebruikt.Is fijner haken. Je kunt dit model makkelijk zelf tailleren.goed meten. Ik heb afgewisseld tussen maat medium en small.

Joana 30.05.2016 - 11:38:

Obrigada pelas respostas e pela ajuda! Entretanto, como estava a ter mais problemas com a interpretação das instruções (a parte das costas e frente separadas), optei por alterar ligeiramente o modelo e seguir as instruções de outro modelo vosso (168-11). Contudo, fico a aguardar uma resposta, demore o tempo que demorar, pois o modelo é muito bonito! Obrigada e continuação de bom trabalho!
