Turn and work 1 tr in fourth ch from hook (= 2 tr), work 1 tr in each of the next 2 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 tr in each of the next 6 tr *, repeat from *-* = 40-40-46-52-58-58 tr.

When piece measures 9-8-11-12-11-14 cm – adjust so that next row is a row with tr that is worked from WS – cast on 24 new, loose ch at the end of row for shoulder = 64-64-70-76-82-82 tr/ch. Work next row as follows - from WS: A.3, A.2 over the next 60-60-66-72-78-78 tr, finish with A.1. Continue like this until piece measures 19-20-21-23-24-25 cm, adjust so that next row is a row with tr worked from RS. Now work as follows: Work A.1, work A.2 over the next 30-30-30-36-36-36 tr, work A.3, turn and work back (do not work over the last 30-30-36-36-42-42 tr on row = armhole).

Hei Jeg går ut ifra at jeg skal fortsette på diagram 1-2-3 ved å starte På nytt nederst i diagrammet når jeg har heklet alt en gang. Det jeg har problemer med er at både siste runde øverst og første runde nederst skal hekles fra retten, hvordan løser jeg det? Mvh Line U.

Hei Line. Det stemmer at du begynner på nytt igjen. Det er 10 omganger i A.1, A.2 og A.3, så siste omgang er fra vrangen. Den nederste omgangen med staver (markert med stjerne) er ikke med i diagrammet, men indikerer omgangen før – som forklart ved tegnforklaringen til stjernen. God fornøyelse.

Finns det ett helt utskrivet mönster? Jag har väldigt svårt att virka efter sådana diagram och därför blir det fel hela tiden för mig. Betalar gärna för ett mönster som allt står skrivet för varje varv istället för att försöka tyda diagram. Vänliga hälsningar Eva

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 14:19:

Hej, tyvärr har vi inte möjlighet att skriva ut detta mönster i text. Pröva gärna något av våra enklare diagram över virkmönster först och se om detta hjälper. Ifall du besöker närmaste DROPS-återförsäljare hjälper de dig tyda diagrammen.

Anca Giurgiu 21.08.2016 - 08:54:

The first row it is worked on RW, the next two rows from the band are worked on WS and RS, so the first row from the diagram must be worked on the WS. In the pattern description A1, A2, A3 are worked from the RS. Please explain how. Thank you!

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 09:34:

Dear Mrs Giurgiu, very first row on top part will be worked from WS, then work 1 row with tr from RS, 1 row with tr from WS so that 1st row with diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 is worked from RS. Happy crocheting!

Berit Rönning 16.07.2016 - 11:59:

Man ska lägga upp nya maskor på avigsidan I slutet av varvet och sedan virka från avigsidan på överdelen - hur går detta till? Dessutom vilket är rätsidan? 1:a varvet på mönstret a1-a3 är det bara stolpar? Tacksam för svar Berit R.

Love the pattern. Looking forward to the diagrams being in place.

Lauren McRoberts 28.06.2016 - 18:35:

You misunderstood me before. The diagrams are not visible on the pattern so the pattern cannot be worked. I know how to work diagrams, but they are not there. This is a technical issue. Please fix so the design can be worked.

DROPS Design 28.06.2016 kl. 23:15:

Dear Mrs McRoberts, see answer below, the diagrams should be visible soon, thanks in advance for your patience! Happy crocheting!

Lauren McRoberts 28.06.2016 - 17:47:

You misunderstood me. I know how to work diagrams, but they are not visible on this pattern, meaning they do not show up on the pattern. Please post the diagrams so this pattern can be worked.

DROPS Design 28.06.2016 kl. 17:57:

Dear Mrs McRoberts, sorry for misunderstanding, they should be visible soon, thanks in advance for your patience! Happy crocheting!

Lauren McRoberts 28.06.2016 - 13:53:

Why aren't the diagrams showing up? They don't seem to be working. Please fix them. Thank you!

DROPS Design 28.06.2016 kl. 16:09:

Dear Mrs Roberts, when working diagrams, you first work A.1 (1 time in width), then repeat A.2 in width until 2 sts remain, and finish with A.3. Happy crocheting!
