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

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 5.5 mm with Big Delight and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work according to A.1. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When A.1 has been worked, circle measures approx. 33 cm in diameter and there are 27 dtr-groups on round.

Size L/XL-XXL/XXXL: Work according to A.2, on first round in A.2 inc 9 ch-spaces evenly (inc the same way as on 6th round in A.1, inc 1 ch-space as follows: Work 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of dtr-group, 9 ch, 1 dc around ch between dtr-groups, 9 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group) = 36-36 ch-spaces. Work A.2 1 time vertically.

ALL SIZES: = 27-36-36 dtr-groups. Work next round as round 1 in A.3, AT THE SAME TIME work armholes as follows:
1 dc around ch-space in the middle of dtr-group, work 30-33-36 loose ch, skip 5-6-7 dtr-groups, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group (armhole has been worked), * 12 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group *, repeat from *-* 8-14-12 times in total, work 30-33-36 loose ch, skip 5-6-7 dtr-groups, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group (another armhole has been worked), * 12 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first dc at beg of round (instead of 1 dc around next ch-space).

Work next round as round 2 in A.3 as follows: Work the same way as before with 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space, around every ch-space for armhole work 6-7-8 tr-groups, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 tr-groups evenly on round, inc 1 tr-group by working 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr + 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around 1 ch-space = 36-45-45 tr-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr around ch-space in the middle of every tr-group and 1 ch between every dtr-group = 36-45-45 dtr-groups with 1 ch between each.

Continue to work according to A.3, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces evenly every time 1st round is worked, as follows:
ROUND 1: Work sl sts until middle of first ch-space (in the middle of a dtr-group), 1 dc, * 12 ch, 1 dc around next ch-space in the middle of a dtr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces evenly on round = 45-54-54 ch-spaces (finish round with 6 ch and 1 triple tr in first dc at beg of round).
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space the entire round = 45-54-54 tr-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr around every ch-space in tr-group and 1 ch between every dtr-group the entire round = 45-54-54 dtr-group with 1 ch between each.

Repeat 1st-3rd round 3-3-4 more times, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 ch-spaces every time 1st round is worked = 72-81-90 dtr-group.

To get an oval shape on jacket work back and forth only over the bottom 47-54-61 dtr-groups, do not work over the middle 25-27-29 dtr-groups at the top of neck.

Beg from RS and repeat 1st-3rd row in A.3 as before 2 times in total (i.e. back is 6 rows longer vertically), to get a nice transition on every turn work as shown in A.4 and A.5, AT THE SAME TIME inc 7 ch-spaces every time 1st row is worked (= 86-95-104 dtr-groups in total on round incl dtr-groups towards the neck).
Finish with 1 round ch-spaces around the entire jacket (from RS) as follows: * 4 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of a dtr-group, 4 ch, 1 dc before next dtr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round, fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work 60-66-72 tr around armhole (approx. 5 tr in every dtr-group and approx. 30-33-36 tr around ch-space – beg mid under sleeve).

Work next round as follows:
* 1 tr in first/next tr, 1 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30-33-36 tr + 30-33-36 ch.
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: * 6 ch, skip 5 sts, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 10-11-12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space the entire round = 10-11-12 tr-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 dtr + 2 ch + 2 dtr around every ch-space in tr-group and 1 ch between every dtr-group the entire round = 10-11-12 dtr-group with 1 ch between each.
ROUND 4: * 12 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of dtr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 10-11-12 ch-spaces but at the same time dec 1 ch-space on round mid under sleeve as follows: 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next to last dtr-group on round, 6 ch, 1 tr around ch-space in the middle of dtr-group to be skipped, 6 ch, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of next dtr-group). On new round work tr-group mid under sleeve in tr between the 2 ch-spaces with 6 ch = 9-10-11 tr-groups.
Repeat 2nd-4th round and dec at the same time 1 ch-space every 3rd round so that there is 1 dtr-group/ch-space less on round. When there are 5-6-7 dtr-groups/ch-spaces on round, work without dec until piece measures 54-54-56 cm, or desired measurements, try the jacket while working. Fasten off and repeat on the other sleeve.

Seria más interesante hacer un video en español..Gracias

Eboneigh 30.08.2019 - 16:45:

A.2, after you make the first armhole and repeat the ch12....for a L/XL wouldn't that be 12 repeats, as that makes math right and is symmetrical? It's got 14 for the L/XL size and 12 for the XXL/XXXL size right now. Which is right?

DROPS Design 02.09.2019 kl. 08:25:

Dear Eboneigh, you repeat the 12 ch-spaces a total of 14 times in size L/XL and skip then only 6 st-groups for each armhole, while you repeat the 12 ch-spaces a total of 12 times in larger size and skip 7 st-groups for each armhole. Happy crocheting!

Krystal 17.08.2019 - 15:54:

I have been crocheting for over 20 years and this pattern is very confusing. I am stuck on the 3rd row of the circle in diagram A1. It says ch-6 then double crochet with a symbol or ch-12 written in with a line drawn to separate then double Crochet’s in the ch-1 space and ch-12 from the top of the previous rows double crochet, this is not possible. Can someone please explain how they got the 3rd row to look like the picture?

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 12:18:

Dear Krystal, row 3 in A.1 starts with sl sts until the middle of 1st ch-space, 1 ch (= see 4th symbol), then 12 ch-spaces with 1 sc between each ch-space, and finish round with 6 chains + 1 dtr in the first sc from beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Krystal 17.08.2019 - 14:48:

How many skeins of yarn is used to make this pattern? I see each skein of the Delight yarn is 208 yards so how many yards total was used for this project?

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 12:16:

Dear Krystal, the amount of yarn is given under the header, depending on the size you will need 500-600-700 g DROPS Big Delight / 100 g a ball = 5-6-7 balls. Happy crocheting!

Kerri 16.08.2019 - 18:50:

Hi i am also having trouble reading the pattern, i don't understand if i am to go straight to creating arm holes and continue for 8, armholes and continue for 8 back to start AND THEN where do i crochet into for the next round? on the arm hole chains or the stitches underneath that were missed out? I understand the diagram of the order of stitches but the written part is not very clear. If there were pictures or videos on this it would be really helpful!

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 08:51:

Dear Kerri, on the round with chains for armholes, crochet this round as explained in the text skipping stitches replaced by chains, these "holes" will create armholes - on next round, continue pattern as before (as there weren't any chains) increasing evenly on the whole round. Happy crocheting!

Bracken 14.08.2019 - 16:39:

Please can you repost tutorial pictures? I’m really struggling with just the pattern and no visual tutorial.

DROPS Design 15.08.2019 kl. 09:26:

Dear Mrs Bracken, the pictures are unfortunately currently unavailable, please feel free to ask your question here, for any further individual assistance, please contact the store where you bought the yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Chriss 12.08.2019 - 13:31:

Sorry for the typo errors. Competent should have been the word not compliant...

Chriss 12.08.2019 - 13:27:

Loving the design. Very quick to make. But some of the written patterns seems to be over complicated. If you put arches from dc to dc instead oval loops on the diagram it would make sense that you are going from dc, chains to making a dc... I'm a compliant crocheter but even I'm finding the wording over repetitive. Needs precise and shorter explanations. But I am able to understand the British crochet terms. Great work overall. X

Chriss 12.08.2019 - 13:20:

Hi, on the next round after the armhole and chains. It says inc 9 does that mean increase or including 9 treble groups. If it increases does that mean do 2 treble groups in one 12chain space plus 1 extra in armhole chain space? I do think another treble is required in armhole space. Instead of 6 do 7 for all sizes. Cheers Chriss

DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 14:34:

Dear Chriss, you have to increase evenly on the round, ie you will have to increase as if there wouldn't be any chain spaces for armholes, there should be some increases between these chain spaces as well as in the chain spaces. Happy crocheting!

Corinne 07.08.2019 - 15:59:

What happened to the diagrams showing the pictures of each step? that was super helpful and now the link is not working to those pages

DROPS Design 08.08.2019 kl. 09:27:

Dear Corinne, for security reasons we had to close down the forum, you will find here how to read diagrams - for any further individual assistance, please feel free to contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!
