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

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.

Hi, love the pattern but I’m stuck on round 2 in A3. I just don’t understand, on a basis on6-78dc groups in armhole+1 dc group in ch-space+inc 9 dc-groups evenly =36-45-45 dc-groups, and the diagram just shows 2 dc-2ch-2dc groups!! Just can’t get it!! Thank you in advance!!

DROPS Design 10.10.2017 kl. 09:39:

Dear Pat, you will find here pictures showing how to crochet A.3 and increase evenly the dc-groups (see pink = US-English terminology). Happy crocheting!

Linda 09.10.2017 - 19:49:

Ah actually I may have solved it as it is clear in the pattern. I have been using the picture instructions which I have found incredibly useful. This round is a bit different and I see it is described clearly in the pattern. Thanks.

Linda Dominique 09.10.2017 - 19:45:

Hi - can you help? For the armhole row on the largest size how many chain loops should be at the bottom and how many at the top either side of the 30 chain armhole loop. Also I assume I am right that I skip 8 dtr groups and work into the ninth?

DROPS Design 10.10.2017 kl. 09:24:

Dear Linda, in the largest size you will have 8 12-ch-spaces at the top of the jacket, 2 36-ch-spaces for the armholes and 12 12-ch-spaces at the bottom of the jacket. Happy crocheting!

Susan 03.10.2017 - 15:46:

Yes, I did check my tension and dropped down a size, prob should have gone down two,sizes. Let me ask you this, when the circle is complete, when I put it on my back, where should the edges go? Do they go to the beginning of my shoulder? Hard to tell in the picture but it looks like completed circle goes to beginning of shoulder.

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 16:18:

Dear Susan, when the first part of the circle is done (after A.1 in first size for example), you start armholes - you can then check the measurements on the chart and compare to a similar garment you have and like the shape. Happy crocheting!

Susan 03.10.2017 - 15:32:

Hi, I just completed the circle and it came out too big! I did a gauge and dropped a hook size and still came to 16 inches/41cm. I had to take out the last row for a mistake and actually am now at the correct size. Can I omit this last row and go forward with a smaller hook size? Or will this cause it to curl and not lay correctly? Will one less row affect it if I am at the correct size now? The thought of taking it all out makes me want to cry!!

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 15:40:

Dear Susan, have you checked your tension? You should have 13 dc x 8 rows = 4"x4". You may have to adjust the pattern to your size. We are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request, but you are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Joyce 21.09.2017 - 00:18:

So after A.1 has been worked, I have 27 tr-groups. At the end of the next round I have a chain of 30 - 8 loops of chain 12 - chain of 30 - 8 loops of chain 12. Is this correct? The loops of chain 12 are anchored by a sc in the center of each of the 8 tr-groups between the chains of 30.

DROPS Design 21.09.2017 kl. 10:12:

Dear Joyce, that's correct. Happy crocheting!

Joyce 20.09.2017 - 01:20:

So with A.1 complete, the next round begins by a sc in the middle of tr group, chain 30, skip 4 tr groups and sc in the middle of the fifth tr group and work the 1st round of A.3 in the next 8 tr groups twice to end with a chain of 30 - 8 loops of 12 - chain of 30 - 8 loops of 12?

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 08:49:

Dear Joyce, when crocheting the 30 chains, you skip 5 tr-groups in 1st size and crochet 1 sc in the next tr-group (= each armhole should be 5 tr-groups unworked, you will crochet the sc in the 6th tr-group). You can find here some pictures explaining how to work the jacket (make sure you are reading US-English terminology). Happy crocheting!

Joyce 19.09.2017 - 04:21:

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!
