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.
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert hook through loop, get the yarn from ball, pull yarn through loop, make 1 YO on hook and pull YO through st on hook = 1 sc, work ch 3, then work 15 dc around loop, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 16 dc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Replace first dc from beg of round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first tr on beg of round with 4 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch on beg of round.

Work a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above, on hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 with Big Delight. Then work according to A.1 - NOTE: First round in A.1 is explained in magic circle, work 4 repetitions of A.1 in width. Sl sts at beg of A.1 are only worked at beg of round. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

When A.1 has been worked, continue according to A.2, work 7 repetitions of A.2 in width, on last round in A.2 dec 1 dc = 160 dc. Continue to work according to A.1, now beg on 5th round - see arrow in diagram. Work 1-2-3 rounds as 5th round in diagram (= 80 dc + 2 ch), then work armholes as follows:
Work * 1 dc + 2 ch in first dc *, repeat from *-* over the first 20 dc, work 22-24-26 ch, skip 10-11-12 dc (=1st armhole), work * 1 dc + 2 ch in next dc *, repeat from *-* over the next 40-38-36 dc, work 22-24-26 ch, skip 10-11-12 dc (=2nd armhole), finish with 1 sl st at beg of round.

Then work as 6th round in diagram as follows: Work 1 dc + 2 ch in every dc until 1st armhole, * work 1 dc + 2 ch around ch-space *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12 more times, continue with 1 dc + 2 ch until 2nd armhole, * work 1 dc + 2 ch around ch-space *, repeat from *-* 10-11-12 more times = 82 dc with 2 ch between each. Then repeat 7th round 8-7-6 times upwards. Work 7th round 1-3-5 more times, AT THE SAME TIME inc 2 dc evenly on every row, i.e. two times on every round work as follows: 1 dc + 3 ch + 1 dc + 3 ch in 1 dc = 84-88-92 dc with 3 ch between each. Piece measures approx. 80-88-96 cm / 31½"-34½"-38" in diameter (= 40-44-48 cm / 15 3/4"-17 1/4"-19" from middle). Work last round in A.1, then work according to A.2 (= 21-22-23 repetitions in width). Fasten off.

Work in the round from armhole and down.
Work 1 dc + 2 ch in every dc skipped, and 1 dc + 2 ch in bottom edge of every dc from the other side of armhole = 21-23-25 dc with 2 ch between each. Insert a marker mid under sleeve. Continue with 1 dc + 2 ch in every dc. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 dc + 2 ch mid under sleeve as follows: Work last dc before marker but wait with last pull through, work next dc (do not work 2 ch between), on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 dc + 2 ch dec). Dec every 5 cm / 2'' 7 more times, dec alternately before and after marker = 13-15-17 dc with 2 ch between each. Continue until piece measures 48 cm / 19'' in all sizes, fasten off. Work another sleeve the same way.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hello, What size is this pattern making? How do you adjust to make S or XXXL? Does the hook size determine the size of the finished jacket? Thank you!

DROPS Design 11.04.2019 kl. 08:57:

Dear Patricia, for the finished size, please refer to the scematics at the bottom of the pattern. And yes, the sice of the hook does change the size of the finished item (the crocheted fabric will be thighter and the piece will be smaller with a smaller hook, and it will be looser and bigger with a bigger hook). Happy Crafting!

Hallo! Ich würde diese Kreisjacke gerne mit einem Farbwechsel-Bobbel häkeln. Sind da 750 m Lauflänge (3-fädig, 150 g) ausreichend? Danke.

Liebe Frau Kaufmann, wir bitten um Verständnis, dass wir nicht Produkte unserer Konkurrenz empfehlen können und dass der Kauf des Materials uns hilft, weiterhin kostenlose Anleitungen zur Verfügung stellen zu können.

Gilda 26.04.2018 - 13:59:

Salve, vorrei un chiarimento sul punto, dopo gli scalfi, non ho capito bene cosa si intende in verticale; mi viene da pensare che devo lavorare fin sopra gli scalfi, ma non lavorare il collo; qualcuno può aiutarmi per favore?

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 14:10:

Buongiorno Gilda. Abbiamo corretto il testo. Deve ripetere il giro 7 il numero di volte indicato per la sua taglia. Buon lavoro!

Chou-coulate 19.01.2018 - 16:17:

Bonjour, Je viens de terminer le dernier rang de A2 et je ne comprends pas lorsqu'il est écrit " au dernier tour de A.2 diminuer 1 B = 160 B". Je dois effectuer des diminutions avant d'entamer la partie disant de reprendre A1 au 5eme rang ?

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 08:44:

Bonjour Chou-coulate, au dernier rang de A.2, vous avez 23 brides dans chaque A.2 x 7 A.2 = 161 brides, diminuez 1 m (crochetez par ex 4 brides au lieu de 5 autour d'un arceau) pour que vous ayez bien 160 brides à la fin de A.2. Bon crochet!

Lina 20.03.2017 - 11:26:

Buongiorno dopo l'aperture della manica il lavoro mi viene a cappello come mai da dire che sto lavorando con cotone e uncinetto n 3 grazie

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 18:46:

Buonasera Lina, ci può spiegare meglio il suo problema? Inoltre questo modello è disegnato per un filato 100% lana e lavorato con un uncinetto 5,5. Se lavora con filato e uncinetto diverso il lavoro non corrisponderà all'originale. Buon lavoro!

Christine 28.02.2017 - 13:56:

Got it! Thanks!

Christine 25.02.2017 - 15:17:

Hi there, I'm a bit confused with the increases ( Then repeat 7th round 8-7-6 times upwards. Work 7th round 1-3-5 more times, AT THE SAME TIME inc 2 dc evenly on every row, i.e. two times on every round work as follows: 1 dc + 3 ch + 1 dc + 3 ch in 1 dc = 84-88-92 dc with 3 ch between each. ) Does this mean that on the next 5 rounds of the 7th round pattern in A1, I need to do 1dc+3ch for the whole round and not 1dc+2ch? Thanks.

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 09:52:

DearChristine, you have now to work the 7th round 5 more times (= 6 times in total), at the same time inc 2 dc evenly as described, ie on the next 5 row you will repeat row 7 every row, at the same time inc 2 dc on each of these 5 rows. Happy crocheting!

Beate 09.02.2017 - 06:49:

Was mache ich falsch, dass das bei mir so wellig wird? Es bäumt sich vom Kreis am Rücken so auf.

DROPS Design 09.02.2017 kl. 08:53:

Liebe Beate, beachten Sie, daß Ihre Maschenprobe stimmt (auch beim häkeln), es kann eine gute Idee sein, Ihrem Laden Ihr Projekt zu zeigen (auch im Fotos per mail), so kann jemand vielleicht beim schauen die Lösung finden. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Pamela 07.02.2017 - 15:33:

How do I determine which size I need to make? Are the numbers in the size diagram in cm or inches? And with which part of the body do those measurements correspond? It's a little confusing. Thank you.

DROPS Design 07.02.2017 kl. 16:28:

Dear Pamela, you will find in measurement chart all measurements in cm for each size, taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more about sizing here. Happy crocheting!

Gerrimie Lañada 25.12.2016 - 02:30:

How to the Picot marked black in A.1 section when the previous stitch before it is a DC? Thank you so much!

DROPS Design 29.12.2016 kl. 13:50:

Dear Mrs Lañada, picot (black dot in A.1) is worked as in the video below but work 3 dc (US-English) in the 1st of the 3 chains instead of 1 dc in the video. Happy crocheting!
