Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
For when the piece is worked back and forth.
On every row with double crochets, the first double crochet is replaced by 3 chain stitches.
On every row with treble crochets, the first treble crochet is replaced by 4 chain stitches.
On every row with single crochets, the first single crochet is replaced by 1 chain stitch.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets in 1 double crochet/single crochet. Do not increase on the band.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through, then work the next double crochet and pull the last yarn over through all 3 loops on the hook – you have now decreased 1 double crochet.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.10. A.10 shows how the pattern starts and finishes when working in the round on the sleeve.
----------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
The piece is worked top down back and forth. Work 171-171-181-186-191-201 chain stitches with hook size 4 mm / G/6 and Cotton Merino. Work the next row as follows:
1 double crochet in the 4th chain stitch (= 2 double crochets), 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* = 136-136-144-148-152-160 double crochets.

READ CROCHET INFO! Insert 12 markers in the piece as follows: Work 21-21-23-24-25-27 double crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-5-3-3-4-2 double crochet/s evenly within these stitches – READ INCREASE TIP, insert the first marker, * work 4 double crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 16 double crochets, insert the next marker, * work 4 double crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 30-30-34-36-38-42 double crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 2-10-6-6-8-4 double crochets within these stitches, insert the next marker, * work 4 double crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 16 double crochets, insert the next marker, * work 4 double crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 21-21-23-24-25-27 double crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-5-3-3-4-2 double crochet/s evenly within these stitches = 140-156-156-160-168-168 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! On the next row from the right side, increase as follows: Increase 1 double crochet on each side of each marker (= 24 double crochets increased), repeat the increase on every row from the right side in total 3-3-4-6-7-9 times, then increase before each marker (= 12 double crochets increased), repeat the increase on every row from the right side in total 4-4-4-2-2-0 times = 260-276-300-328-360-384 double crochets. The piece now measures approx. 17-17-19-19-21-21 cm / 6 3/4"-6 3/4"-7½"-7½"-8 1/4"-8 1/4''. On the next row work as follows: 41-44-48-53-59-63 double crochets (front piece), 8 chain stitches (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 double crochets from the previous row (will be used later for the sleeve), 70-76-84-94-106-114 double crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-1-3-1-1-3 double crochet/s evenly within these stitches (back piece), 8 chain stitches (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 double crochets from the previous row (will be used later for the sleeve) and 41-44-48-53-59-63 double crochets (front piece) = 169-181-199-217-241-259 double crochets/chain stitches.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

Continue by working the first 2 rows in A.x as follows: A.1 (= 6 double crochet/treble crochet band), A.2 in total 25-27-30-33-37-40 times in width, A.3, finish with A.4 (= 6 double crochet/treble crochet band). Work the 3rd row on A.x (= double crochet row) and increase 18 double crochets evenly along the row = 187-199-217-235-259-277 double crochets. Then work the first 3 rows in A.y, but A.2 is now worked 28-30-33-36-40-43 times in width. Work the 4th row in A.y (= double crochet row) and increase 18 double crochets evenly along the row = 205-217-235-253-277-295 double crochets.

Now work the first 2 rows in A.z. Then repeat the next 2 rows in A.z until the piece measures approx. 25-28-30-30-33-33 cm / 9 3/4"-11"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-13"-13'' – adjust after the last of the 2 rows. Then work the 2 last rows in A.z – AT THE SAME TIME on the last row (= double crochet row) increase 6 double crochets evenly along the row = 211-223-241-259-283-301 double crochets. Then work the first 3 rows in A.y, but A.2 is now worked 32-34-37-40-44-47 times in width. Work the 4th row in A.y (= double crochet row) and increase 6-6-12-6-6-12 double crochets evenly along the row = 217-229-253-265-289-313 double crochets.

Continue by working the next 5 rows as follows: A.5 (= band), A.6, A.7 in total 16-17-19-20-22-24 times in width, A.8, finish with A.9 (= band). Then work A.y as follows: A.1 (= 6 double crochets band), A.2 in total 33-35-39-41-45-49 times in width, A.3, finish with A.4 (= 6 double crochets band). Then work the last row in A.5-A.9 as follows: A.5 (= band), A.6, A.7 in total 16-17-19-20-22-24 times in width, A.8, finish with A.9 (= band). Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVE:
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
The sleeve is worked in the round and top down - see A.10 for how the rounds start and finish. Start working mid under the sleeve as follows: Work 1 single crochet in the 5th chain stitch of the 8 chain stitches which were worked in the armhole of the body. Work 3 chain stitches (= 1 double crochet). Continue by working 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches. Continue by working 1 double crochet in each double crochet over the sleeve AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1-3-1-5-3-1 double crochet/s evenly within these stitches – READ DECREASE TIP, before working 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 4 chain stitches under the sleeve = 61-61-67-67-73-79 double crochets.

Continue by working the first 2 rounds in A.x as follows: A.2 in total 9-9-10-10-11-12 times in width, finish with A.3. Work the 3rd round in A.x (= double crochet round) and decrease 6 double crochets evenly along the round = 55-55-61-61-67-73 double crochets.
Then work A.y 1 time in height, but A.2 is now worked 8-8-9-9-10-11 times in width.

Now work the first 2 rounds in A.z (A.2/A.3). Then repeat the next 2 rounds in A.z until the piece measures approx. 25-25-25-25-25-25 cm / 9 3/4"-9 3/4"-9 3/4"-9 3/4"-9 3/4"-9 3/4" – adjust after the last of these 2 rounds. Then work the 2 last rounds in A.z – AT THE SAME TIME on the last round (= double crochet round) decrease 6-6-6-6-6-6 double crochets evenly along the round = 49-49-55-55-61-67 double crochets. Then work A.y, but A.2 is now worked 7-7-8-8-9-10 times in width. Then work the last round in A.6 and A.8 as follows: A.6 in total 7-7-8-8-9-10 times in width, finish with A.8. Cut and fasten the strand. The sleeve measures approx. 33-33-33-33-33-33 cm / 13"-13"-13"-13"-13"-13''. Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECKLINE:
Work a border along the neckline, use hook size 4 mm / G/6 and Cotton Merino. Start mid front from the right side, work double crochets in the chain stitches with double crochets in them (i.e. do not work in the chain stitches that were shipped) = 136-136-144-148-152-160 double crochets - AT THE SAME TIME decrease 27-27-29-33-31-33 double crochets evenly along these double crochets = 109-109-115-115-121-127 double crochets. Then work the last row in A.6 and A.8 as follows: Work A.6 in total 17-17-18-18-19-20 times in width, finish with A.8. Cut and fasten the strand.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the buttons on the left front piece – the uppermost button is 2 cm / 3/4'' from the neckline, the other buttons are placed with approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' gaps. The buttons are buttoned between 2 double crochets on the right front piece.

Are there any instructional videos that go along with the crochet patterns for a lady's cardi? I would like to inquire about any videos that demonstrate the exact pattern used on any one of your lady's cardi patterns, or any of your other lovely patterns in crochet or knitting, as I am new to the crafts. Thank you.

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 09:00:

Dear Amelia, we have added your request on our todolist, but inbetween, feel free to request help reading diagrams from your store where you bought your yarn. Happy crocheting!

Amelia 05.04.2018 - 00:45:

Cm 064 would you please do a video tutorial for the crochet patterns used in this yellow cardi? When I see your videos, I feel more confident at trying one of your patterns. Would you consider doing the videos that go along with this pattern and with the other patterns, please? It would make all the difference to see the accompanying video. Also, I was considering making this card as gifts for sizes xl, 1x, and 3x. What is the cost?

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 08:59:

Dear Amelia, start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side from the RS and every round when working in the round. From the WS read diagrams from the left towards the right. Each symbol is the key to a st/group of st, see diagram text. You are welcome to contact your DROPS store for any further assistance reading diagrams and calculating for you the cost for the yarn in the 3 desired sizes (see amount of yarn in each size under "Materials". Happy crocheting!

Walker Constantinesco 19.10.2017 - 02:11:

When repeating the second set of two rows of A.Z you said to measure the 25cm from where you cast on at what point in the pattern is where you cast on!

DROPS Design 19.10.2017 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Walker, measure on front band or on mid back (just as where you measure the yoke before skipping sts for sleeves). Happy crocheting!

Sonia 29.08.2017 - 19:35:

Hola, al comenzar los delanteros no me queda claro cómo empezar. Dice el patrón, Continuar trabajando las primeras dos hileras de A.x de la manera siguiente....... Mi pregunta es si se teje la hilera cogiendo las cd de las mangas o hay que saltarlas para dejarlas libres y retomarlas en las mangas, gracias.

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 20:04:

Hola Sonia. El diagrama A.x se trabaja sobre todos los puntos del cuerpo, incluidas las cadenetas trabajadas bajo las mangas.

Sonia 24.08.2017 - 23:24:

Hola, he comenzado la chaqueta y según las medidas mi talla es la L pero el cuello queda muy grande. Se queda más pequeño al hacer la orilla del escote? He visto que tiene reducciones pero no sé si afecta al tamaño. Aún estoy a tiempo de hacer una talla más pequeña, gracias.

DROPS Design 27.08.2017 kl. 19:45:

Hola Sonia. Trabajando la cenefa desde el escote siempre se encoge algo el tamaño del escote pero hay que tener cuidado con la tensión del tejido al trabajar a ganchillo. Si el resto de la chaqueta queda bien, puedes trabajar la parte del escote con una aguja de ganchillo del siguiente número más pequeño.

Karin Pinter 22.08.2017 - 13:28:

Hej igen! Storleken är L. Det är när jag börjar på hålmönstret efter oket. När A.x börjar står det så här: 6 stolpar/dubbelstolpar framkant, ska jag då räkna att jag har 7 dst inkl luftm. A.2 totalt 30 ggr, sA.3, avsluta med A.4. Sedan är det hur gör jag över de 8+8 luftm för ärmhålen. Det är detta stycket jag har problem med. Mvh

DROPS Design 22.09.2017 kl. 10:44:

Hej Karin, nej du virkar A.2 hela vägen runt, även över de nya lm som du har under varje ärm, sedan avslutar du varvet med A.3 och A.4. Lycka till!

Karin Pinter 22.08.2017 - 09:16:

Hur jag än gör så blir det inte rätt. Det står att man ska göra 30 st A.2 men det blir inte så. Har varit hos butik i Lund men det var inte så mycket hjälp. Kan man få mönsterbeskrivning utan diagram? Tacksam för svar. Mvh Karin

DROPS Design 22.08.2017 kl. 09:27:

Hei Karin. Synd å høre at du ikke fikk noe hjelp i butikken. Vi har dessverre ingen egen mønsterbeskrivelse, men vi skal prøve å hjelpe deg. Da er det fint for oss å vite hvilken størrelse du hekler, gjerne få en beskrivelse på hvor sånn ca du er i oppskriften og hva du mener er feil/hva som ikke stemmer.

Rebecca 16.08.2017 - 15:06:

Thanks a lot for the information.

Heike Di Patti 16.08.2017 - 10:17:

Wie werden denn die Rückreihen gehäkelt? Wie häkelt man Reihe 4, 5 ?

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 11:38:

Liebe Frau Di Patti, alle Reihen sind in Diagram bezeichnet, dh die Hin- sowie die Rück-Reihen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Rebecca 16.08.2017 - 07:44:

I want to make this design but I am not understanding this line from the pattern "Work 171-171-181-186-191-201 chain stitches". How Many chain stitches do I have to work? and can you please the explain how to read it,it would help me understand the rest of the pattern.

DROPS Design 16.08.2017 kl. 10:29:

Dear Rebeca, each number is for the revelant sizes.171 stitich for size S - 171 stitch for size M - 181 stitch for size L, etc. So if anywhere in the pattern you see several numbers divided by a dash, you have to use the one that is at the place where the letter for your size is at the beginning at the pattern. It can also help if you read through the pattern and circle the appropriate number everytwhere, before you start. I hope this helps, happy crovjeting!
