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

JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 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 GAUGE!
When A.1 has been worked, circle measures approx. 33 cm / 13'' in diameter and there are 27 tr-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 sc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group, 9 ch, 1 sc around ch between tr-groups, 9 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group) = 36-36 ch-spaces. Work A.2 1 time vertically.

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

Work next round as round 2 in A.3 as follows: Work the same way as before with 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space, around every ch-space for armhole work 6-7-8 dc-groups, AT THE SAME TIME inc 9 dc-groups evenly on round, inc 1 dc-group by working 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc + 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around 1 ch-space = 36-45-45 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around ch-space in the middle of every dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group = 36-45-45 tr-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 tr-group), 1 sc, * 12 ch, 1 sc around next ch-space in the middle of a tr-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 dtr in first sc at beg of round).
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space the entire round = 45-54-54 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space in dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group the entire round = 45-54-54 tr-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 tr-group.

To get an oval shape on jacket work back and forth only over the bottom 47-54-61 tr-groups, do not work over the middle 25-27-29 tr-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 tr-groups in total on round incl tr-groups towards the neck).
Finish with 1 round ch-spaces around the entire jacket (from RS) as follows: * ch 4, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of a tr-group, ch 4, 1 sc before next tr-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round, fasten off.

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

Work next round as follows:
* 1 dc in first/next dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30-33-36 dc + 30-33-36 ch.
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: * ch 6, skip 5 sts, 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 10-11-12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc around every ch-space the entire round = 10-11-12 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 tr + 2 ch + 2 tr around every ch-space in dc-group and 1 ch between every tr-group the entire round = 10-11-12 tr-group with 1 ch between each.
ROUND 4: * 12 ch, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of tr-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 sc around ch-space in the middle of next to last tr-group on round, ch 6, 1 dc around ch-space in the middle of tr-group to be skipped, ch 6, 1 sc around ch-space in the middle of next tr-group). On new round work dc-group mid under sleeve in dc between the 2 ch-spaces with 6 ch = 9-10-11 dc-groups.
Repeat 2nd-4th round and dec at the same time 1 ch-space every 3rd round so that there is 1 tr-group/ch-space less on round. When there are 5-6-7 tr-groups/ch-spaces on round, work without dec until piece measures 54-54-56 cm / 21 1/4"-21 1/4"-22", or desired measurements, try the jacket while working. Fasten off and repeat on the other sleeve.

Ok, I am stuck at the armhole. What does it mean " at the same time" ? Am I supposed to ch 30 or work around as round 1 in A.3? If I follow the 'at the same time' instructions I end up with two chains of 30 separated by 8 loops of 12. I begin to work the next round per instructions,basically ignoring the chain of 30 but lost when come to the first loop of 12.

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 09:01:

Dear Joyce, you are working round A in A.3 and at the same time crochet 30 chains and skip 5 tr-groups for each armhole, as explained under ALL SIZES. On the next round in A.3 work the round 2 in A.3 inc 9dc-groups evenly = 36 dc-groups at the end of this round. Happy crocheting!

Joyce 19.09.2017 - 01:29:

How would I convert this pattern to child 5 to 6 yr old?

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 08:58:

Dear Joyce, you can take inspiration from the patterns for circle jacket for kids. Happy crocheting!

Susan Gross 13.09.2017 - 15:32:

Thank you so much...i really love this jacket and i guess i will try to learn the chart as well..i hit translate and i think that is where i messed up. is there a video for this anywhere?

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 17:30:

Dear Mrs Gross, there is no video to this pattern, follow the pictures step by step with diagrams and follow English instructions (in pink for US-terminology). For any further assistance, remember your DROPS store can help you even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Susan Gross 13.09.2017 - 15:20:

Wow total confusion for me....i went to the printed tutorial bc I do not read charts and i cant understand that either....what is a ml? what is a B? what is this terminology? I am US terms and have no clue what i am reading and i read patterns, please help!

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 15:23:

Dear Mrs Gross, if you want to follow the tutorial in pictures from here you will find the US-English terminology written in pink (in black = French terminology and in blue = UK-English terminology). Happy crocheting!

Monica Svedberg 09.09.2017 - 20:14:

Hej ! Jag har problem när jag ska börja på mönster A2. 9 lm-bågar JÄMT fördelade....osv. hittar ingen förklaring . Samt hur jag ska tyda/läsa diagram A2 och A3.

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 13:55:

Hej Monica, jo titta på 6:e varvet i diagram A.1 som du har virkat, du ökar på samma sät. Om du har 27 9-lm-bågar virkar du en extra båge efter var 3:e båge. Lycka till

Ik zou graag de gehaakte vest maken DROPS/171/21 Fall Festival (vanaf 31.50 euro) Model nr db-065 maar ik vind niet terug hoeveel materiaal ik juist dien te bestgellen voor de maat L/XL en de kleurverhouding? Kan u me een tip geven? Met dank. Lut

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 13:25:

Hallo Moreau, Voor maat L/XL heb je 600 gram DROPS BIG DELIGHT nodig. Dit garen heeft een kleurrijke print, die reeds zorgen voor de kleurovergangen en het werk.

Jessica 18.08.2017 - 22:05:

I've read through all instructions and comments but can't seem to figure out the oval part. As far as I can tell, I'm supposed to work A.3 twice, only using A.4 and A.5 as a way to round out the ends. And if that's the case, how does it end up with (96-95-104 tr- groups in total around incl tr-groups toward the neck)? Because even if I increase by 7, if I follow A.4 and A.5, I am decreasing at the ends and will not have that number.

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 12:08:

Dear Jessica, you work A.3 starting/ending the rows with A.4/A.5 inc evenly every time you work row 1 - you will finish with 86-95-104 tr groups including the tr-groups unworked on the top of piece and the tr-groups leaving unworked in A.4/A.5: let's take size S: 47 tr-groups worked on the bottom + 2x7 tr-groups inc + 25 tr-groups unworked at top of neck = a total of 86 tr-groups. Happy crocheting!

Jessica 16.08.2017 - 17:07:

I have 2 questions. I am making this in the L/XL size. I am on the row where I am making the arm holes. So I chained 30 and it says to skip 7 dc spaces but in the picture, only 6 were skipped so (Question 1) how many do I skip? And (Question 2) How many ch 12 spaces do I make for the top and bottom? It doesn't specify and the picture doesn't match the instructions so I don't know what to follow and I don't want to guess. Thanks for your help!

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 11:42:

Dear Jessica, in size L/XL you will skip only 6 tr-groups, then work a total of 14 12-ch-spaces for the bottom, skip the next 6 tr-groups (2nd armhole) and finish with 12-ch-spaces to the end of round. On round 2 in A.3 you will work dc groups around as in A.3 + uner the chains inc evenly 9 dc groups so that you have 45 dc groups at the end of this round. Happy crocheting!

Catherine Greffard 14.08.2017 - 20:11:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas "crocheter une fois A.2 en hauteur. J'ai vu la réponse que vous avez donné à la même question et j'ai regardé les images mais ça montre de faire un tour complet, où le "en hauteur ?"

DROPS Design 17.08.2017 kl. 19:12:

Bonjour Catherine. Le diagramme A.2 se compose de trois tours. Crocheter une fois À.2 en hauteur, signifie que vous devez crocheter tous les 3 tour du diagramme A.2 (3 tours complètes ) comme expliqué dans les images. Bon crochet!

Najat 12.08.2017 - 18:08:

Hello, is it okay if we left out the sleeves or would it ruin the pattern?

DROPS Design 13.08.2017 kl. 10:10:

Hello, yes, it is ok - as the sleeves are worked separately, the will be no problem with pattern. Happy crocheting!
