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, work 3 ch, then work 11 tr around loop, finish with 1 sl st in third ch. 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.
Replace first tr on round/row with 3 ch. Finish round with one sl st in third ch.
Replace first dtr on round with 4 ch. Finish round with one sl st in fourth ch.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

4-DTR:
Make 4 YOs on hook, insert hook in first tr on row and pull yarn through first tr, * 1 YO on hook, pull yarn through the next 2 loops on hook *, repeat from *-* 4 more times = 1 st on hook.

----------------------------------------------------------

CROCHET TOP:
Top is worked in 2 parts that are sewn tog in the sides and on shoulders, then work an edge at the bottom.

FRONT PIECE:
Work front piece in a circle, then as a square from mid front. Work a MAGIC CIRCLE on hook size 4 mm with Belle – see explanation above = 12 tr around circle. Then work according to A.1, work A.1 3 times around the magic circle. NOTE: Sl sts show at beg of A.1 are worked at end of round. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 147 tr on circle. Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr = 148 tr.
ROUND 2: Work *1 dc in each of the first 8 tr, 1 htr in each of the next 2 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, 1 dtr in each of the next 3 tr, 1 triple tr in each of the next 3 tr, 1 4-dtr – SEE EXPLANATION ABOVE, in next tr, 5 ch, 1 4-dtr in next tr, 1 triple tr in each of the next 3 tr, 1 dtr in each of the next 3 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, 1 htr in each of the next 2 tr, 1 dc in each of the next 7 tr *, repeat from *-* 3 more times.
ROUND 3: Work 1 tr in every st, around ch-space in each corner work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr = 172 tr (= 43 tr in each side). SIZE S/M: Finish square here.
ROUND 4: Work 1 tr in every st, around ch-space in each corner work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr = 196 tr (= 49 tr in each side). SIZE L/XL: Finish square here.
ROUND 5: Work 1 tr in every st, around ch-space in each corner work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr = 220 tr (= 55 tr in each side). SIZE XL/XXL: Finish square here. Square measures approx. 28-30-32 cm. Cut the yarn.

Now work along side 2, 3 and 4 from crochet square (see chart). Beg in the second corner on square, work 3 tr around ch-space, work 1 tr in every tr until next corner, work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr, work 1 tr in every tr until next corner, work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr, work 1 tr in every tr until last corner, work 3 tr around ch-space. There are now 49-55-61 tr on each of the 3 sides. Work back and forth, now work according to A.2, finish with 1 tr in last tr before corner, in each of the two corners work 3 tr + 3 ch + 3 tr, work the new sts into A.2. Continue like this for approx. 7-10-15 cm, piece now measures 42-50-62 cm from side 2 to side 4, or adjust according to chest width. Then work a gusset in each side of top as follows: Beg along side 2 as follows (from RS).

SIZE XL/XXL: Turn and work 1 4-dtr in every 4-dtr, 1 triple tr in every triple tr, 1 dtr in every dtr, 1 tr in every tr, 1 htr in every htr and 1 dc in every dc. Cut the yarn.
All sizes: Work a gusset the same way along side 4 (work from the top and down = from WS). Cut the yarn.

Then work back and forth according to A.2 (finish with 1 tr).
When piece measures 7-9-11 cm, work only over the first 13 tr on row (= left shoulder). Work A.2 (finish with 1 tr up towards neck) as before over these sts until piece measures 17-19-21 cm, fasten off. Now work over the last 13 tr on row (= right shoulder), work the same way as on left shoulder. 29-35-41 tr in the middle = neck.

Goedendag. Tot mijn eigen verbazing is het mij, als beginnend haakster, gelukt om de cirkel te maken. En er daarna een vierkant van te maken. Ik ga nu beginnen aan het haken van de 3 zijde. Daarna staat er: haak heen en weer. En moet ik aan A2 beginnen. Nu ben ik de weg kwijt. Op de foto kan ik ook niet goed zien wat ik nu moet doen. Is er een foto van het voorpand waarbij het in zijn geheel te zien is? Groeten, Nicole

Hallo Nicole, Nadat je de de eerste toer hebt gehaakt over de 3 zijden volgens de beschrijving, haak je volgens tepatroon A.2 over de 3 zijden (waarbij de eerste toer van A.2 dus al is gehaakt). In de beschrijving staat aangegeven hoe je de hoeken haakt. (Er is helaas geen foto van een 'los' voorpand.)

Gostaria de saber o nome do fio, link p q posso ver a especificação do tex, composição p eu achar algo semelhante! Obrigada

DROPS Design 16.01.2018 kl. 15:31:

O nome do fio é Belle. A composição é única e não existe outro fio com a mesma composição. Bons trabalhos,

Also der Pullover ist so wunderschön, aber die Anleitung sehr widersprüchlich angegeben, so dass ich nun zum 3 Mal alles aufribbeln mußte. Widersprüchlich insofern, als man versteht, dass bei M1 insgesamt 4 Rapporte gehäkelt werden müssen anstelle 3. Daher erklärt sich auch, warum man in der letzten Reihe auf 196 Maschen anstatt 147 kommt.

Maritza 31.10.2017 - 21:37:

Hola. No entiendo la instrucción para la espalda. Donde menciona que la pieza debe medir 15 cm para comenzar a tejer los hombros?

DROPS Design 04.11.2017 kl. 13:23:

Hola Miritza. Se refiere a la parte del escote. En el delantero comenzamos a formar el escote cuando la labor mida 7-9-11 cm medidos desde la sisa, y en la espalda - 15-17-19 cm. A partir de aquí trabajamos solamente sobre los puntos que forman el hombro a cada lado.

REBEYROL 28.07.2017 - 14:42:

J'ai terminé le diagramme A3C A3B A3A sauf .... le dernier rang ..... 4 B dans la même B ... 2 ml .... MAIS entre ces B, il y a des CERCLES ..... MERCI INFINIMENT .

DROPS Design 28.07.2017 kl. 15:31:

Bonjour Rebeyrol, le petit rond correspond à un picot (=12ème symbole de la légende), soit 3 ml, puis 1 B dans la 1ère de ces 3 ml. Bon crochet!

REBEYROL 28.07.2017 - 12:05:

BONJOUR .... Je suis au tout dernier rang du diagramme de la bordure en bas du top. Je comprends qu'il faut crocheter 4 brides mais entre, il y a un minuscule cercle. Que signifie cette légende ? Pouvez vous m'aider ? MERCI INFINIMENT.

DROPS Design 28.07.2017 kl. 14:13:

Bonjour Mme Rebeyrol, ce petit point noir signifie que ce rang a déjà été fait (= rang précédent du bas du top), commencez au rang suivant (= 1 ml, 1 ms, 5 ml, sautez 2 m, 1 ms dans la m suiv...). Bon crochet!

REBEYROL 25.07.2017 - 08:23:

J'ai mon ouvrage devant les yeux et les goussets sont en place. J'arrive donc à la pièce du haut côté 1. Si j'ai bien compris, je dois crocheter sur le premier rang mais, qui concerne seulement le carré, en laissant de côté, les parties crochetées 2 et 4 ?

DROPS Design 25.07.2017 kl. 09:49:

Bonjour Mme Rebeyrol, le 1er rang va se faire le long du carré, mais on le commence par 3 brides dans le 1er rang crocheté sur le côté droit (= côté 4) et on le termine par 3 brides dans le 1er rang crocheté sur le côté gauche (= côté 2). Bon crochet!

REBEYROL 22.07.2017 - 12:08:

MERCI INFINIMENT pour vos explications qui sont très claires. Lorsque j'arrive au diagramme A2, je vois que le premier tour a déjà été fait, est-ce que ça veut dire que je ne m'occupe que des 2 autres rangs en aller retour ?

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 09:21:

Bonjour Mme Rebeyrol, tout à fait, dans A.2, on répète les 2 derniers rangs seulement, le 1er rang (celui avec l'étoile) montre seulement le rang précédent, pour savoir où piquer les brides du 1er rang de A.2. Bon crochet!

REBEYROL 16.07.2017 - 16:39:

Je crois que j'ai compris .... Dans le rang côté 4, je dois crocheter les 26 premières ms et les 52 brides qui me restent, je commence la double B dans chacune des 8 B suivantes, 1 B dans chacune des 8 B suivantes et ainsi de suite ......

REBEYROL 16.07.2017 - 16:24:

Pouvez vous m'expliquez le premier rang pour réaliser le gousset .... ce que je ne comprends pas, c'est de crocheter 1 ms dans chaque bride jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 52 B ???? ..... J' ai 79 B sur mon rang côté 4 et autant de brides sur le côté 2.
