Pattern instructions

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.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
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 dc, then work 8 dc around loop, finish with 1 sl st in first dc = 9 dc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc on round with 1 ch. Finish round with one sl st in first ch from beg of round.
Replace first tr on round/row with 3 ch. Finish round with one sl st in third ch from beg of round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

QUADRUPLE TR: Make 4 YOs on hook, insert hook around ch-space and pull yarn around ch-space, * 1 YO on hook, pull yarn through the next 2 loops on hook *, repeat from *-* 4 more times = 1 loop on hook.

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

JUMPER:

BACK PIECE:
Work back piece in a circle, then as a square from mid back. Work up along one side of square for shoulder/neck at the end.
Work a MAGIC CIRCLE on hook size 4.5 mm with Paris – see explanation above = 9 dc around circle. Then work according to A.1 (on first round in A1 work 2 dc in each of the 9 dc = 18 dc). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! READ CROCHET INFO! When A.1 has been worked, there are 120 tr on round and piece measures approx. 22 cm in diameter.

Then work according to A.2, work 4 repetitions of A.2 around the circle - beg on second round in A.2. NOTE: Sl sts at beg of A.2 are only worked at beg of round.

When A.2 has been worked, continue according to A.3. A.x shows 1 repetition of A.3 in width. Work A.3, in every corner work 1 dtr + 3 ch + 1 dtr, work 2 repetitions more of A.3 between every corner for every round worked. Continue with A.3 until piece measures 23-25-27-29-33-36 cm from centre (46-50-54-58-66-72 cm in total), there are now approx. 18-20-22-24-28-30 repetitions of A.3 along each side of square. Now work piece back and forth and dec for neck in the middle of the first side of square. Cut the yarn and skip the middle 6-6-8-8-10-10 repetitions (= neck) on the first side of square, continue A.3 with inc in the corners until row has been worked, do not work over the 6-6-8-8-10-10 repetitions skipped at beg of row. Fasten off, piece measures 25-27-29-31-35-38 cm from centre (50-54-58-62-70-76 cm in total), there are approx. 7-8-8-9-10-11 repetitions on each shoulder, and approx. 20-22-24-26-30-32 repetitions along each of the other 3 sides. Insert 1 marker in each side, 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm down from shoulder, this shows where sleeve is sewn in.

FRONT PIECE:
Work as back piece until piece measures 17-19-21-23-27-30 cm from centre (32-36-40-44-52-58 cm in total), there are now approx. 14-16-18-20-24-26 repetitions of A.3 along each side of square. Now work piece back and forth and dec for neck in the middle of the first side of square. Cut the yarn and skip the middle 2 repetitions (= neck) on the first side of square, continue with A.3 with inc in the corners until row has been worked, do not work over the 2 repetitions skipped at beg of row. Turn and work a row from WS. Cut the yarn, skip the first 2-2-3-3-4-4 repetitions, continue with A.3 and inc in the corners, but turn when 2-2-3-3-4-4 repetitions remain on row, 6-6-8-8-10-10 repetitions have been dec mid front for neck. Continue back and forth with A.3 and inc until piece measures 25-27-29-31-35-38 cm from centre (50-54-58-62-70-76 cm in total), there are approx. 7-8-8-9-10-11 repetitions on each shoulder, and approx. 20-22-24-26-30-32 repetitions along each of the other 3 sides, adjust according to back piece. Fasten off. Insert 1 marker in each side, 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm down from shoulder, this shows where sleeve is sewn in.

SLEEVE:
Sleeve is worked in the round, top down. Work 64-64-69-69-74-74 ch and form a ring with one sl st in first ch. Work 3 ch (= 1 tr), 1 tr in each of the next 6-6-3-3-0-0 ch, skip 1 ch, * work 1 tr in each of the next 7 ch, skip 1 st *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 56-56-60-60-64-64 tr. Remember CROCHET INFO! Then work in the round and according to A.3. On 3rd round in A.3 dec 8 tr evenly - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every time 3th round in diagram is worked 3 times in total = 32-32-36-36-40-40 tr. Work A.3 until piece measures 33-32-31-30-27-25 cm, finish after 2nd or 4th round in A.3. Work 40-40-40-48-48-48 tr in total around ch-spaces. Then work according to A.4 (5-5-5-6-6-6 repetitions in width, diagram shows 2 repetitions in width), work first round as follows: * Work 1 tr in each of the first 7 tr, 1 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* 4-4-4-5-5-5 more times. NOTE: Sl sts at beg of A.4 are only worked at beg of round. Work A.4 1 time vertically. Work now 1 round with tr: 1 tr in each tr, 3 tr around each ch-space. Fasten off. Sleeve measures approx. 48-47-46-45-42-40 cm. Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew side seams from markers in the side and down. Sew in sleeves.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 2 lengths of 3 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread tie up and down around the neck. Cut 8 lengths of yarn of 20 cm. Thread the ends through the end of the tie and fold them double. Twine one of the strand around the top of tassel. Make another fringe in the other end of tie.

Hola, dicen que el motivo A2 se repite cuatro veces, pero no se ve en el modelo que este repetido 4 veces. Será eso un error de traducción? Lo que si se ve en el modelo es que se repite A3, hasta dar la medida de la talla.

DROPS Design 27.10.2018 kl. 10:57:

Hola Milena. El patrón está correcto.El diagrama A.2 se repite 4 veces alrededor del circulo ( es decir a lo largo de la vuelta, y no en vertical). Trabajando este diagrama se forma un cuadrado ( una esquina = una repetición de A.2)

Met welke steek moet het proeflapje gehaakt worden om 10x10cm te krijgen? Vasten of stokjes? met vriendelijke groet, Hilde

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 20:51:

Dag Hilde,

Dit moeten stokjes zijn. Ik heb het even aangepast. Veel haakplezier.

Linda Manhartsberger 06.06.2018 - 14:25:

Thank you! The video for the neck and front are a life saver. I believe I can now finish without any further problems.

Linda Manhartsberger 05.06.2018 - 21:49:

After completing A2, I have now made 2 full rounds of A3 (8 rounds). My square now measures 20" total across. I am a size XS and have in fact used one hook size smaller than specified. Have I done something wrong? I have not even begun the neck portion which I am still trying to figure out what I am supposed to do with that. The instructions for this pattern are completely baffling!

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 10:03:

Dear Mrs Manhartsberger, after A.2 you have to work A.3 until piece measures 18" across in first size = size S (no size XS in this pattern) (= 9" from the middle/center of square), adjust your number of rows to get the correct measurement - and remember to check and keep your gauge (= 16 dc x 9rows = 4"x4") to get the pattern matching the measurement chart and the correct size. Happy crocheting!

Linda Manhartsberger 31.05.2018 - 18:44:

I am completely confused about how to make the picot in A.2.

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 08:26:

Dear Mrs Manhartsberger, this video shows how to crochet such a picot: 3 ch, 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook. On next round, work the sc in the top of the picot. Happy crocheting!

Sharon Kerr 21.03.2018 - 18:42:

Just realized my error and thought I'd share because I saw that at least one other person had the same problem I did. I downloaded the pattern in British English, so I was doing all the wrong stitches. If you're in the U.S., be sure to look for the US English version.

Sharon Kerr 21.03.2018 - 15:52:

I have just started this pattern. It\'s gorgeous, but I\'m having trouble. I have two questions: #1: Do I do a first round of eight 8 double crochets and then start A1 with the round of 17 doubles?

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Kerr, you first start with a magic loop and 9 dc, then crochet A.1 (= 2 dc in each dc in 1st round in A.1 = 18 dc after first round in A.1).

Sharon Kerr 21.03.2018 - 15:50:

#2: I started the A1 diagram, but instead of getting a flat circle, I keep getting a bowl. I've re-started 4 different times now, adapting in a few ways: making chain stitches really loose, adding additional chain stitches. Not only does this not solve the problem, but I'm afraid I'm going to mess things up for future rounds. Is there a secret to getting this to lie flat? This may relate back to question 1.

Anne-Marthe 05.02.2018 - 17:59:

Hei. Jeg holder på med denne genseren, men har et spørsmål til A2. Skal mønsteret hekles rundt og rundt slik som på A1, eller skal jeg kun hekle det som står av mønster og da hekle dette fram og tilbake, men gjøre dette på "4 steder" ? Eller skal jeg hekle rundt og rundt 4 ganger dette mønsteret? Håper dere forstod spørsmålet mitt.. Mvh Anne-Marthe.

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 08:41:

Hei Anne-Marthe. Når du er ferdig med A.1 (sirkelen), fortsetter du med A.2 rundt sirkelen, det hekles 4 rapporter av A.2 rundt sirkelen. God Fornøyelse!
