CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with tr with 3 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round (does not replace first tr).
Beg every round with dc with 1 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch at beg of round (does not replace first dc).
2nd and 5th round in A.3 begins with 3 chain stitches, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.

INCREASE TIP-1:
Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in same st.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Work until 2 tr/ch remain before marker, work 2 tr in/around next tr/ch (= 1 tr inc), work 1 tr in/around each of the next 2 tr/ch, markers is in the middle of these tr/ch, work 2 tr in/around next tr/ch (= 1 tr inc). Repeat inc at every marker.

PATTERN-1 (applies to body):
Work 1 tr in every tr until 6-8-10-10-10-10 round with tr have been worked in total, * work A.3. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 6-8-10-10-10-10 rounds with 1 tr in every tr *, repeat pattern from *-* until finished measurements.

PATTERN-2 (applies to sleeves):
* Work A.3 over all tr. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue as follows: Work 6-8-10-10-10-10 rounds with 1 tr in every tr *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements.

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.
----------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
The piece is worked top down. Worked from mid back. Work 145-145-154-154-162-162 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work next round as follows: Work 3 ch (= 1 tr) - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 tr in each of the next 5-5-0-0-1-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 126-126-133-133-140-140 tr. Repeat A.1 18-18-19-19-20-20 times in total in width. A.2 shows how every round in A.1 beg and ends. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! On last round in A.1 insert 8 markers and work and inc as follows: AT THE SAME TIME inc in addition 0-2-2-8-2-2 tr evenly on the entire round – READ INCREASE TIP-1: Work 29-29-31-31-33-33 tr, insert 1 marker in piece, work 4 tr and inc 2-4-4-4-4-4 tr evenly (= half back piece), insert 1 marker, work 42-42-44-44-46-46 tr, insert 1 marker, work 4 tr and inc 2-4-4-4-4-4 tr evenly, insert 1 marker (= sleeve), work 58-58-62-62-66-66 tr, insert 1 marker, work 4 tr and inc 1-4-4-4-4-4 tr evenly, insert 1 marker (= front piece), work 42-42-44-44-46-46 tr, insert 1 marker, work 4 tr and inc 1-4-4-4-4-4 tr evenly, insert 1 marker (= sleeve), work 29-29-31-31-33-33 tr (= half back piece) = 222-234-246-252-258-258 tr on round. Piece measures approx. 9 cm.

Work 0-0-0-0-2-2 rounds with 1 tr in every tr and inc 0-0-0-0-12-15 tr evenly on every round (= 0-0-0-0-24-30 tr in total) = 222-234-246-252-282-288 tr. Move the markers upwards when working. Repeat A.3 37-39-41-42-47-48 times in total in width. On 2nd round (i.e. tr round) inc at every marker – READ INCREASE TIP-2 and inc 2-8-8-8-8-8 tr evenly on round (= 2 tr in at every marker and 2-8-8-8-8-8 tr inc evenly = 18-24-24-24-24-24 tr inc in total on round) = 240-258-270-276-306-312 tr. Now repeat A.3 40-43-45-46-51-52 times in width. Repeat inc (i.e. 2 tr inc at every marker and 2-8-8-8-8-8 tr inc evenly = 18-24-24-24-24-24 tr inc in total on round) on last round in A.3 = 258-282-294-300-330-336 tr. * Work 1 round with 1 tr in every tr. Work 1 round with tr and inc 18-18-16-17-24-26 tr evenly *, repeat from *-* 1-1-2-3-2-3 times in total = 276-300-326-351-378-414 tr. Work 0-1-1-0-1-0 rounds with 1 tr in every tr. Piece measures approx. 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm. On next round work as follows: Work 1 tr in each of the first 39-43-47-51-57-64 tr (= half back piece), work 8 ch, skip 60-64-69-73-75-79 tr from previous round (= sleeve), 1 tr in each of the next 78-86-94-103-114-128 tr (= front piece), 8 ch, skip 60-64-69-73-75-79 tr from previous round (= sleeve), 1 tr in each of the last 39-43-47-51-57-64 tr (= half back piece) = 172-188-204-221-244-272 tr/ch on round.

Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work 1 round with 1 tr in every tr/ch. On next round, dec 4-2-0-5-4-2 tr evenly - READ DECREASE TIP = 168-186-204-216-240-270 tr.

Then work PATTERN-1 – see explanation above. When piece measures 12 cm, adjust so that next round is a round with tr, dec 6-12-12-6-6-6 tr evenly = 162-174-192-210-234-264 tr. Continue with pattern as before. When piece measures 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm – adjust so that next round is a round with tr, inc 12 tr evenly. Repeat inc every 3 cm 5-5-5-5-6-6 more times = 234-246-264-282-318-348 tr. Work pattern as before until piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm from marker. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:

Beg by working mid under sleeve as follows: Work 1 dc in 5th ch of the 8 ch work in armhole on body, 3 ch (= 1 tr), work 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch, work 1 tr in every tr over sleeve, work 1 tr in each of the remaining 4 ch under sleeve = 68-72-77-81-83-87 tr. Insert 1 marker thread mid under sleeve. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Leave marker in piece, move marker thread when working.

SIZE S-M:
Work 1 tr in every tr and dec 2-0 tr evenly = 66-72 tr.

SIZE L-XL-XXL-XXXL:

Work PATTERN-2 - see explanation above.
DECREASE:
When piece measures 4 cm, adjust so that next round is 1 round with tr, dec 6 tr evenly, repeat dec every 15-10-8-8-8-6 cm 2-3-4-4-4-5 more times = 48-48-48-54-54-54 tr. Fasten off when sleeve measures 46-45-45-44-44-43 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Worked back and forth from mid back. Work in ch where the tr were worked (i.e. do not work over the ch skipped = 126-126-133-133-140-140 tr). Work 1 dc in each of the first 16-16-18-18-20-20 tr, * 1 htr in each of the next 3 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch, 1 dtr in each of the next 19 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch, 1 htr in each of the next 3 ch *, 1 dc in each of the next 32-32-35-35-38-38 ch, repeat from *-* 1 time, 1 dc in each of the last 16-16-18-18-20-20 ch.

I have not tried this pattern and I don’t think I will. The pattern around the neck looks like a bunch of evil clowns. I would never be able to not see them lol.

Laura Rossi 04.06.2019 - 12:21:

Ho eseguito lo sprone per la taglia xxl con uncinetto 3.5 mm e alla fine era lungo 30cm circa. Ho disfatto tutto e ricominciato con uncinetto 3 mm e taglia xl alla fine era di 27cm. In entrambi i casi molto piu' lungo di 20/22 cm. cosa sbaglio? nella foto noto un solo giro di A3 mentre nelle istruzioni dice di ripetere A3 una seconda volta. Porto una taglia 52/54. Sono bloccata attendo sollecita risposta.

DROPS Design 04.06.2019 kl. 12:45:

Buongiorno Laura. Provi a verificare che il suo lavoro misuri 9 cm, nel punto in cui è indicato, quindi prima del diagramma A.3, per essere sicuri che la tensione in verticale sia corretta. Il diagramma A.3 viene lavorato 1 sola volta, come nella fotografia. Alterna poi alcuni giri a maglie alte con il diagramma A.3, fino alla fine del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Jean Claude 12.11.2018 - 14:16:

J'aimerais savoir que veut dire ces chiffre dans le patron. 1 B dans chacune des (5-5-0-0-1-1) ml suivantes, *sauter 1 ml, 1 B dans chacune des 6 ml suivantes*, répéter de *-* Ceux qui sont en parathèse. Merci de votre réponse.

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 14:54:

Bonjour Jen Claude, les chiffres entre parantheses se referent aux tailles respectives, donc vous devez choisir un seul chiffre: p.ex. dans la taille S vous choississez 5 ml suivantes (le premier chiffre entre parantheses). Bon travail!

Els Van Den Brink 25.08.2017 - 21:16:

Ik heb deze trui gehaakt maar nu lopen de naden van de mouwen en achter helemaal schuin naar beneden . Wat heb ik verkeerd gedaan?

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 12:35:

Hallo Els, De trui wordt uit een stuk gehaakt en er zitten daardoor geen naden achter of in de mouw. Kun je aangeven wat je precies bedoelt met die naden? Of loopt het patroon op een of andere manier schuin?

Anna De La Motte 24.01.2017 - 12:06:

Hej Jag skall virka sista omgången på a1 och här skall jag öka och sättas markör men jag får det inte och stämma det står att det ska ökas jämt fördelat men också som man ska göra det när man har virkat 4s efter markören som jag har satt efter 29 st. Jag undrar hur jag ska göra?

DROPS Design 26.01.2017 kl. 11:50:

Hej Anna. Du skal göre bogstaveligt som der staar. Nu ved jeg ikke hvilken str du laver, men f.eks. str M, saa haekler du: 29 st, sett 1 merke, hekle 4 st og ök 4 st jaevnt fordelt (dvs, 2 i hver st), saa du har her heklet 4 st, men du har 8 st efter sidste m, saa saetter du et merke til, saa hekler du 42 st og jeg ville her öke de 2 st jaevnt fordelt. Samme som för, du har heklet 42 st men har 44 efter sidste merke, set et nyt merke. Osv.

PRAT Prat 07.12.2016 - 20:21:

Bonjour, Je commence ce beau pull mais dès le départ j'ai un problème (empiècement). Vous nous dites de monter 154 mailles et ensuite pour le tour suivant il faut faire 19 fois (taille L) le diagramme A1 donc 19 * 6 + 1 maille sauté : 133 mailles mais non 133 brides. Que faire des 21 mailles restantes. J'ai un soucis de compte là, merci beaucoup de m'aider.

DROPS Design 08.12.2016 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour Mme Prat, on monte une chaînette de 154 ml mais dès le 1er tour, on doit avoir 133 B (= 3 ml (= 1 B), *sauter 1 ml, 1 B dans chacune des 6 ml suivantes*, répéter de *-* tout le rang). Puis on peut répéter 19 fois les 7 m de A.1 = 133 B. Bon crochet!

Louise 13.10.2016 - 10:18:

Hej. Jeg skal til sidste omgang i a1 og herfra skal der tages ud og sættes mærketråde. Men kan slet ikke få det til at give mening hvornår og hvordan der skal tages ud. For der står man skal tage ud jævnt fordelt, men det bliver også skrevet som om man skal tage ud 4 gange efter hinanden? Kan i prøve at forklare det på en anden måde? Eller skrive hvor henne mærketråde skal sidde når man har taget alt ud? Håber i kan hjælpe da jeg ikke kan komme videre

DROPS Design 13.10.2016 kl. 12:22:

Hej Louise. Du tager ud som beskrevet i teksten OG samtidig med du tager de fire steder. Dvs, du tager de 2-4-4-4-4-4 st og 1-4-4-4-4-4 ud i de 4 st angivet i beskrivelsen OG du tager 0-2-2-8-2-2 st jaevnt fordelt paa omg - du tager disse ud i st andre steder paa omg, men jaevnt fordelt, saa jeg ville tage f.eks 1 paa hvert forstk (2 st i alt) eller 2 paa hvert forskt og 4 paa rygstk (8 st i alt)

Cath 31.08.2016 - 18:26:

Thank you so much. I've finally got my brain in gear with your help (and some unpicking) so I can re-do the original inserting marker row and know what I've got to do now after that regarding the increases.

Cath 30.08.2016 - 18:46:

Thank you but I'm still unclear of how to move a marker vertically when there isn't an obvious stitch above it in the next row, e.g a ch1 space or a "trebled fan". Is it done by line of sight? I still think my beginning and end markers in each set have wandered off the path. Kind regards, Cath

DROPS Design 31.08.2016 kl. 09:15:

Dear Cath, when you inc at markers, inc in the tr or in the ch before marker and in the tr or in the ch after marker (see Increase tip 2), let the marker follow (use a marking thread if it is easier to move it forwards) - This is not a real raglan yoke rather rounded yoke where you inc at markers and evenly at the same time. When dividing piece for sleeves, you will then distribute number of sts for each piece. Happy crocheting!

Cath 30.08.2016 - 14:53:

Size XXL. Before starting A3 I had correct number of stitches but because of patterning and increases I've lost my way with moving the markers correctly. When final increase round of A3 is completed which numbered stitches along the row should each of the 8 markers be in, counting from the turning chain(s)? I hope this makes sense and thanks for your help. Cath.

DROPS Design 30.08.2016 kl. 15:49:

Dear Cath, you have to inc evenly on rounds and inc at markers at the same time, ie you will have a round yoke, the number of sts between markers is not that important if they have been worked as stated (= at markers + evenly). After A.3 you should have a total of 330 sts on round. Then work some more inc round and you will have the number of sts for each piece (and a total of 378 sts). Happy crocheting!
