NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1 to A.9.

Beg every dc row with 1 ch (replaces first dc).
Beg every tr row with 3 ch (replaces first tr).
Beg every dtr row with 4 ch (replaces first dtr).

Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in/around same st.

CROCHET TIP (applies to sleeves):
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc around next ch-space (= first ch-space on next round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last ch and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards. NOTE: BE CAREFUL NOT TO DISPLACE THE MARKER.

Work 1 dc around next ch-space but wait with last pull through, work next dc around next ch-space (do not work 5 ch between dc), on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

Work 207-229-252-275 ch on hook size 5 mm with Paris. Work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook (= 2 tr) - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 tr in each of the next 3-5-3-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 165-183-201-219 tr.

Then work NEXT TO LAST row of diagram A.1 to A.5 - see arrow in chart - as follows: Work A.1 over the first 4 tr, work A.2 over the next 6 tr, repeat A.3 until 11 tr remain (= 24-27-30-33 times in total in width), work A.4 over the next 7 tr and finish with A.5. Work last row of A.1 to A.5. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Then repeat A.1 to A.5 vertically. NOTE: Do not work first row in diagram, it shows how next row should be worked in sts from previous row. When piece measures 37-38-41-42 cm, adjust so that next row is with tr and from RS (cut the yarn if next row is from WS), divide the piece.

Continue as follows from RS: Work A.1 and A.2 as before, repeat A.3 over the next 36-42-48-54 tr (= 6-7-8-9 times in total in width), work A.4 and then A.5, turn piece. Continue pattern like this over these sts until piece measures 18-19-20-21 cm from where it was divided, adjust so that next row is with tr and from WS (cut the yarn if next row is from RS).

Work as follows from RS: Work A.1, A.2, repeat A.3 over the next 30-36-42-48 tr (= 5-6-7-8 times in total in width), A.4, finish with A.5. Continue pattern like this over these sts until piece measures 18-19-20-21 cm, adjust pattern according to right front piece.

Work as right front piece.

Then work the parts tog from WS (i.e. work from left front piece, over back piece and to right front piece) with pattern as before, i.e. work as follows from WS: Work A.5 and A.4 as before, A.3 24-27-30-33 times in total in width, A.2, finish with A.1. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 63-67-73-77 cm in total, adjust so that next row is with tr, inc 4-2-0-14 tr evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 169-185-201-233 tr. Then work next row as follows: A.6 over the first 4 tr, repeat A.7 until 5 tr remain (= 10-11-12-14 times in width), A.8 over next tr, finish with A.9 over the last 4 tr. When A.6 to A.9 have been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 71-75-81-85 cm in total. Fasten off.

Sleeve is worked in the round, top down. Work 78-78-83-83 ch on hook size 5 mm with Paris.
ROUND 1: Work 1 dc in 13th ch from hook, * 5 ch, skip 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* over ch, work 1 dc around the first 3 ch = 14-14-15-15 ch-spaces - READ CROCHET TIP!

Continue to work 5 ch and 1 dc around every ch-space. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 ch-space before marker - READ DECREASE TIP!

Repeat dec alternately on each side of marker every 4 cm 4 more times = 9-9-10-10 ch-spaces.
When piece measures 26 cm, finish round with 1 sl st in last ch mid under sleeve. Continue in the round as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 3 ch, * 4 tr around first/next ch-space, 3 tr around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 32-32-35-35 tr. Fasten off.

Work another sleeve the same way.

Fasten sleeve to jacket, sew in outer loops of edge sts, and make sure to avoid a tight seam.

Renell 01.10.2018 - 02:04:

Hello again, I had counted the second row which is 165 do. When I work the 3 rows, it doesn't add up. I got this - 4dc + 6dc +6dc (23 times) and I got 2 =4 not 3 = 6 7dc +4 dc = 159 not 165. I had repeatedly 3 times and didn't get it right. What I am doing wrong? Thank you!

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 09:55:

Dear Mrs Renell, after you have the 165 dc, work pattern as follows: A.1 (= 4 dc), A.2 (= over next 6 dc), repeat A.3 (= over 6 sts) a total of 24 times and finish with A.4 (= over the next 7 dc) and A.5 (= 4 dc) : 4+6+ 24x6 + 7 + 4 = 165 sts. Do not hesitate to add markers between each repeat to make sure you are crocheting the correct number of repeats in width. Happy crocheting!

Renell 23.09.2018 - 05:34:

Hi there. Can you help me with this one please. I am doing this pattern. Please see on page 2 - jacket. I had done 207 chains and work 1dc in the 4th ch from hook and that make 2 dc. Now I don't understand the first two sentences saying 'Read crochet info, 1 dc in each 3,5,3,1 ch'. I ended up 166 dc not 165 doc. What I am doing wrong and can you explain. Thank you!

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 09:19:

Dear Mrs Renell, in the first size crochet 207 chains, then crochet 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc = as under CROCHET INFO you replace first dc with 3 ch), then crochet 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch (= 4 dc over 4 ch) repeat a total of 40 times (skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch) (= you work 4 dc over 5 chains): 2 dc + 4 dc + (40 x 4 dc ) = 165 dc. Happy crocheting!

Penny 13.12.2017 - 22:10:

Hi there. Love the pattern. My question is beginning the 2nd row, the pattern says to follow the chart at the arrow. The arrow is at the TOP of the chart? How can this be correct? It also states to repeat A.3 until 11 trebles remain, work A.4 over the next 7 tr, and finish A.5. A.4 has 9 tr and A.5 has 4tr. It doesn't add up. What am I missing.

DROPS Design 14.12.2017 kl. 08:51:

Dear Penny, you are right number of sts may have to be checked, just work: A.1, A.2, repeat A.2 until 13 sts remain and finish with A.4 and A.5, number of sts will add up. Happy crocheting!

J. T. 02.10.2017 - 14:20:

I have done first row and have 165 double crochets. I started with second row by the arrow and had to repeat A3 more often than 25 times. What am I doing wrong?

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 08:47:

Dear J.T., A.3 is worked over 6 dc, so that in the first size you will repeat A.3 a total of 24 times in other words over the next 144 dc. So that you will have from the beg: A.1 over the first 4 dc, A.2 over the next 6 dc, A.3 a total of 24 times over the next 144 dc, A.7 over the next 7 dc and A.5 over the last 4 dc = 4 + 6 + 144 + 7 + 4 = 165 dc. Happy crocheting!

How to know how many skeins of yarn to purchase to make any/all of the sizes?? P.S. - I love the design & the sleeves, not as easy to find nice crochet tops that include the sleeves

DROPS Design 06.07.2017 kl. 00:44:

Dear Sender, The original modell is made of DROPS Paris yarn, which comes in 50 gramm skeins, therefore you would need 13 skeins for size S/M, 16 skeins for size L / XL, 18 skeins for size xxl, and 20 skeins for size XXXL. I hope this helps. Happy Crocheting!

Lorraine 10.08.2016 - 15:25:

Hi - I would like to use a 4 ply cotton to make this jacket. Can I double the beginning chains? Will the pattern work out? Many thanks Lorraine

DROPS Design 10.08.2016 kl. 16:17:

Dear Lorraine, this pattern has been written for a cotton 10 ply - see here. You will have to make a swatch and recalculate the pattern matching your gauge. Happy crocheting!

Benedetta 29.07.2016 - 14:06:

Grazie,preziose come sempre!Buona giornata!

Benedetta 29.07.2016 - 11:44:

Buongiorno, non capisco questo passaggio :'quando il lavoro Mis 37 cm aggiustare in modo che la riga successiva sia a m.alta e dal diritto del lavoro'.Grazie x l'aiuto

DROPS Design 29.07.2016 kl. 12:35:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Deve proseguire finché il lavoro non misura ca. 37 cm. Deve però anche verificare che la riga successiva da lavorare sia una riga tutta a m.a (riga 8 dei diagrammi escludendo la riga con la stella) e che questa riga venga lavorata sul diritto del lavoro. Quindi p.es: se a 37 cm la riga successiva coincide con la riga 7, lavora la riga 7 e poi la riga 8 separando il lavoro in davanti destro/sinistro e dietro. Buon lavoro!

Lida Dekker 29.06.2016 - 06:41:

I do not understand row 1 of the sleeve. Is there a typo? Does the round start by connecting the chain first? Is there a video for this row?

DROPS Design 29.06.2016 kl. 08:24:

Dear Mrs Dekker, no typo, do not connect the chain first and at the end of round 1, do not work any sl st, just continue with ch-spaces around (and dec on mid under sleeve). Happy crocheting!

Marjo 22.06.2016 - 20:56:

Ik moet nu beginnen met de mouw maar snap het patroon niet. moet je eerst het koord aan elkaar maken? waar steek ik in de dertiende steek? begrijp ik het goed dat je moet (door)tellen vanaf de eerste steek van het lossenkoord? maar dan ontstaat er een lus of een los koordje van 13 steken als je de cirkel niet moet samenvoegen. hopelijk kunt u mij verder helpen? vr gr MJ

DROPS Design 23.06.2016 kl. 15:20:

Hoi Marjo. Je haakt een ketting van X aantal st en dan 1 v in de dertiende l, en herhaalt vervolgens 5 l, 4 l overslaan en 1 v volgende l. De eerste 13 l, zijn nog een boog (5 en 4 l). Je haakt heen en weer, dus je keert en haakt 5 l/1 v om elke boog. Ik verwacht dat het duidelijker wordt als je keert en haakt terug en in de laatste boog haakt en eindigt als eerste toer.
