Work first row as follows from WS: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook - READ CROCHET INFO, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-* until 0-0-1-1-0-0 ch remains and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 0-0-1-1-0-0 ch = 100-100-110-110-118-118 sc (includes 4 sc in each side towards mid front for band).
Work 1 row with 1 sc in every st from previous row. Work 1 row sc from WS while inc 24-24-22-22-22-22 sc evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 124-124-132-132-140-140 sc on row – NOTE: Do not inc over the outermost 4 sc in each side.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING AND REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work next row as follows from RS: Work A.1 over the first 17-17-19-19-21-21 sc (the first 4 sts at beg of row = band), work 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc (= raglan inc), work A.2 over the next 6 sts (i.e. 1 sc in first sc, ch 6, skip 4 sc, 1 sc in next sc) (= left front piece), work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sc, 2 sc in next sc (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 6 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 1 sc in each of the next 26-26-30-30-34-34 sc, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc (= back piece), A.2 over the next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sc, 2 sc in next sc (= sleeve), A.2 over the next 6 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 1 sc in each of the last 17-17-19-19-21-21 sc (= right front piece, the last 4 sc at the end of row = band), turn piece – NOTE: Count inc on this row with total no of raglan inc.
Continue back and forth with A.1 over sleeves, front and back piece (i.e. 2 rows dc, 2 rows sc) and A.2 in each transition between body and sleeves (when 1st-5th row have been worked 1 time, repeat 2nd-5th row). AT THE SAME TIME inc for raglan every row as follows - NOTE: Inc differently on body and sleeves:

RAGLAN INC ON FRONT AND BACK PIECE:
Inc 2 sts before/after A.2 on front and back piece by working 2 dc/sc in each of the last 2 sc/dc before/after A.2 on front and back piece.
Repeat inc with 2 dc before/after A.2 (= 8 sts inc) on every row 3-6-6-11-13-18 times in total (includes first raglan inc).
Then inc 1 st before/after A.2 (= 4 sts inc) by working 2 dc/sc in sc/dc before/after A.2 on front and back piece. Repeat inc with 1 dc on every row 16-15-17-13-13-10 times in total.

RAGLAN INC ON SLEEVES:

After last inc, there are 288-316-340-368-400-436 sts on row.
Work next row as follows from RS: Work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the first 44-49-53-59-65-72 sts (= left front piece), skip the next 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts (= sleeve), work 12 ch, work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the next 80-90-98-110-122-136 sts (= back piece), skip the next 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts (= sleeve), work 12 ch and work 1 sc/dc as before in each of the last 44-49-53-59-65-72 sts (= right front piece) = 192-212-228-252-276-304 sts on row.
Then finish body and sleeves separately.

Work 1 row sc/dc as before with 1 sc/dc in every st and 12 sc/dc around ch-space under each sleeve AT THE SAME TIME inc 22-20-22-22-22-24 sts evenly (do not inc over the outermost 4 sts in each side (= bands)) = 214-232-250-274-298-328 sts on row.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.3 with 4 sc/dc in each side for bands, i.e. work as follows (1st row = sc from RS – if next row is from WS, cut the yarn and beg from RS):

ROW 1: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts (= band), * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, ch 6, skip 4 sts *, repeat from *-* until 6 sts remain on row and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 6 sts (the last 4 sts = band), turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5 sc, * ch 2, 1 sc around ch-space, ch 2, 1 dc in each of the next 2 sc *, repeat from *-* until 4 sc remain on row and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 4 sc, turn piece.
ROW 3: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, ch 3, 1 sl st in sc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* until 6 dc remain on row and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 6 dc, turn piece.
ROW 4: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the first 6 dc, * ch 4, 1 sc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* until 4 dc remain on row, 1 sc in each of the last 4 dc, turn piece.
ROW 5: ch 1, 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 6 sc remain on row, finish with 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc.
Continue pattern like this according to diagram A.3 (repeat rows 2-5 in diagram). When piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-37-38 cm / 13½"-13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14½"-14½"-15" from under sleeve - finish after 4th or 5th row in pattern, work 1 row with dc, i.e. work 1 dc in every sc from previous row and 4 dc around every ch-space, turn piece and work 1 row sc with 1 sc in every dc. Cut the yarn, piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
= 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts. Worked back and forth. Insert 1 marker on row – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Work first row as follows from WS:
Work 6 loose ch, work 1 sc/dc in every st on sleeve as before and finish row with 8 ch, turn piece. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), work 1 dc in each of the next ch 4, 1 dc in every dc from previous row AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-0-0-0-4-4 dc evenly and 1 dc in each of the 6 ch from beg of previous row = 72-76-80-82-90-94 dc on row.

Then work pattern according to diagram A.3 as follows (1st row = sc from RS – if next row is from WS, cut the yarn and beg from RS): Work 11-13-12-13-14-16 sc, work A.3A until 13-15-14-15-16-18 sts remain on row, work A.3B and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 11-13-12-13-14-16 sts, turn piece. Continue pattern like this according to diagram A.3 (repeat rows 2-5). Work sc as first st in A.3B.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
AT THE SAME TIME on 2nd row dec 1 st in each side by working the first 2 dc on row tog 2 by 2 and the last 2 dc on row tog 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec 11-13-12-13-14-16 times in total in each side on alternately 4th and 5th row = 50-50-56-56-62-62 sts. Continue A.3 back and forth until sleeve measures approx. 46-46-45-45-43-43 cm / 18"-18"-17 3/4"-17 3/4"-17"-17" from marker – finish after 4th or 5th row in pattern (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Approx. 5 cm / 2'' remain until finished measurements, try the jacket on for correct sleeve length.
Then work dc back and forth over all sts - NOTE: Work 1 dc in every sc and 4 dc around every ch-space. When edge with dc measures 5 cm / 2'' and sleeve measures approx. 51-51-50-50-48-48 cm / 20"-20"-19 3/4"-19 3/4"-19"-19" from armhole, cut the yarn. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Hej! Har garnet Cotton Viscose utgått? Varför? det är ju det finaste garnet som finns.

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 09:18:

Hej Ingrid, ja desværre men vi har DROPS Safran som er et lidt blankere bomuldsgarn :)

Titi 14.09.2017 - 14:50:

Bonjour, A la fin des augmentations raglans manches et dos+devant+ 6 mailles au dessus de A2, j'ai + de 316 mailles ( taille M) Pouvez vous être plus claire pour cette explication : Merci par avance pour votre aide

DROPS Design 14.09.2017 kl. 16:45:

Bonjour Titi, vous augmentez pour les devants et le dos: 6 x 8 m + 15 x 4 m (= 108 m au total) et pour les manches: 21 x 4 m (= 84 m au total). Vous aviez 124 m + 108 + 84 = 316 m. Bon crochet!

Coco 09.07.2017 - 16:06:

Bonjour concernant les augmentations raglan j'ai bien fait celles des devants et du dos mais je ne vois pas comment faire celle des manches merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 09:43:

Bonjour Coco, en fonction de la taille, les augmentations des manches se font plus ou moins en même temps que celles du dos et des devants, c'est-à-dire ainsi: Dos et devants: 3-18 x 2B tous les rangs et 16-30 x 1B tous les rangs Manche: 19-28 x 1 B tous les rangs. Augmentez avant A.2 (= fin du devant gauche, des manches et du dos), et/ou après A.2 (= fin des manches, début du dos et du devant droit). Bon crochet!

Kine 24.10.2016 - 15:14:

Hi! What does the "0 0 1 1 0 0" mean?

DROPS Design 24.10.2016 kl. 15:58:

Dear Kine, each number refers to a size, ie when you have to work until 0-0-1-1-0-0 ch remains, no chain will remain in 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th size, only in 3rd and 4th size. Happy crocheting!

Dea 03.08.2016 - 15:39:

All'inizio del lavoro dice di fare la prima riga di m.b. sul rovescio del lavoro, poi due righe a maglie basse avanti e indietro e poi un'altra riga con aumenti dal rovescio del lavoro...seguendo questa successione mi ritrovo con quattro righe e quindi R, D, R , D e non rovescio...o sto sbagliando qualcosa e la riga con aumenti è la seconda delle due avanti e indietro? Spero di essermi spiegata bene. Grazie.

Buongiorno Dea. Chiediamo una verifica alla casa madre. L'eventuale correzione verrà inserita nella spiegazione online. Grazie e buon lavoro!
