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.

Olá e obrigada pela resposta! Deixo duas sugestões: 1. Fazer um vídeo com esta parte específica (transição de A.1 para A.2 e depois A.3), uma vez que várias pessoas tiveram a mesma dúvida 2. Colocar uma fotografia das costas do modelo para se ver melhor o motivo, pois ajuda a ver melhor alguns pormenores (por ex. como fazer os cantos em A.3) Obrigada!

Joana 07.05.2016 - 21:26:

Será que me podem ajudar? Quando é que começo a trabalhar A.3? É após ter completado 1 repetição de A.2, o que significa que crocheto ao mesmo tempo A.2 (pois, segundo as instruções, tenho de repetir o motivo 4 vezes) e A.3? Ou é só depois de ter terminado as quatro repetições de A.2? Obrigada

DROPS Design 09.05.2016 kl. 11:32:

O diagrama A.2 tricota-se 4 vezes em largura ou seja 4 vezes na carreira (à volta do círculo) e apenas 1 vez em altura. Portanto, quando tiver terminado A.2, continua com A.3. Bom croché!

Annie Ricard 06.05.2016 - 20:32:

Bonjour, je ne comprend pas les coins de A3. Je ne sais pas où faire 1DB,3ml,3DB.

DROPS Design 09.05.2016 kl. 09:09:

Bonjour Mme Ricard, les coins ont été formés à la fin de A.2 (1 DB, 4 ml, 1DB au milieu du diagramme A.2). Dans A.3, crochetez 1DB, 3 ml, 1 DB dans cet arceau. Bon crochet!

Vana Giannitsopoulou 04.05.2016 - 15:40:

Hello again what you mean by decreasing in this case is omitting 8 dc in every 3 rd round?

DROPS Design 04.05.2016 kl. 15:54:

Dear Mrs Giannitsopoulou, dec 1 dc working 2 dc tog - see "DECREASE TIP" at the very beg of the pattern. ie you will then work 2 dc tog a total of 8 times evenly on row. Happy crocheting!

Vana Giannitsopoulou 04.05.2016 - 07:08:

Hello! I am having trouble with the sleeve. I do not understand what do you mean with decreasing 8dc on the 3rd round. Which round do you regard as 3rd? Please help me as it is the first time that one of your patterns is so complicated to figure out. Thank you

DROPS Design 04.05.2016 kl. 08:56:

Dear Mrs Giannitsopoulou, you decrease 8 dc evenly on 3rd round in A.3 ( see here how to dec evenly) - 3rd row in A.3 is the one with only dc around ch-spaces. Happy crocheting!

Manon 01.05.2016 - 12:34:

In A2, row 2, the picots. I don't realy understand how to work these... At the start of this row I go up with 3 ch, then tehre should be a picot. How do I make this? It says 3 ch and then in the 1st ch I do the 3 dc. But they will not be "landed" in the previous row then?!! Thansk in advance for your help.

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:57:

Dear Manon, the picots will be worked as in the video below, but work 3 dc instead of 1 dc worked in the video. You will have a small triangle. Happy crocheting

Becky 29.04.2016 - 20:07:

When doing round 1 of A2 after round 5, do I put a tr into every tr/dtr including the corner?? Or do I skip the 2 dtr around ch3 in round 4?? I'm confused, I've tried following it but it just kept going round, getting bigger and I ended up with about 6 'corners' :/

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:13:

Dear Becky, on round 1 in A.2 work (3ch = 1st tr), *3 ch, skip 2 tr* repeat from *-* around, ie repeat A.2 a total of 4 times in the round. Repeating A.2 a total of 4 times, you will then finish with 4 corners as in middle of A.2. Happy crocheting!

Maria 28.04.2016 - 17:58:

Me encanta, lo estoy haciendo para mí. Cuando lo termine pondré la foto en el grupo.
