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

CIRCLE JACKET:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and light sea green and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue working according to diagram A.1. READ CROCHET INFO! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been completed, the circle measures approx. 26 cm in diameter and there are 27 double treble crochet groups on the round.

Work according to A.2, on the first round in A.2 increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round, increase in the same way as on round 6 in A.1, i.e. increase 1 chain-space as follows: work 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group, 9 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain stitch between the double treble crochet groups, 9 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group = 36 chain-spaces. Complete A.2 1 time in height.

Sizes L/XL-XXL/XXXL: When A.2 has been completed 1 time in height, continue working according to A.3, increase in the same way as in A.2 – work 1 treble crochet group more between each increase, every time you increase = 45-45 double treble crochet groups.

ALL SIZES: = 36-45-45 double treble crochet groups. The next round is worked in the same way as round 1 in A.3, AT THE SAME TIME work the armholes as follows:
1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group, work 33-36-39 loose chain stitches, skip 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group (you have now worked one armhole), * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* in total 14-20-18 times, work 33-36-39 loose chain stitches, skip 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group (you have now worked one more armhole), * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* to the end of the round, but finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet at the beginning of the round (instead of 1 double crochet around the next chain-space).

The next round is worked in the same way as round 2 in A.3 as follows: work in the same way as before with 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space, around each chain-space for the armhole work 7-8-9 treble crochet groups, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 treble crochet groups evenly along the round, increase 1 treble crochet group by working 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet + 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around 1 chain-space = 45-54-54 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around the chain-space in the middle of each treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet group = 45-54-54 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.

Continue to work according to A.3, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round each time you work round 1 as follows:
ROUND 1: Work slip stitches to the middle of the first chain-space (in the middle of a double treble crochet group), 1 double crochet, * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the next chain-space in the middle of a double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* the whole round AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 9 chain-spaces evenly along the round = 54-63-63 chain-spaces (finish the round with 6 chain stitches and 1 triple treble crochet in the first double crochet at the beginning of the round).
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space the complete round = 54-63-63 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around each chain-space in the middle of the treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet group the whole round = 54-63-63 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.

Repeat 1st-3rd round 5-5-6 times more, AT THE SAME TIME increase 9 chain-spaces every time you work round 1 = 99-108-117 double treble crochet groups.

So that the jacket is given an oval shape, continue by working back and forth over only the bottom 62-67-72 double treble crochet groups, do not work over the middle 37-41-45 double treble crochet groups at the top of the neck.

Start from the right side and repeat rows 1-3 in A.3 as before a total of 2 times (i.e. the back piece gets 6 more rows in height), to get a neat transition every time you turn the piece, work as shown in A.4 and A.5, AT THE SAME TIME increase 7 chain-spaces every time you work row 1 (= a total of 113-122-131 double treble crochet groups on the round including the double treble crochet groups towards the neck).

To finish, work 2 rounds with chain-spaces around the whole jacket (from the right side) as follows – work with powder:
ROUND 1: * 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of one double treble crochet group, 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain-space (between 2 double treble crochet groups *, repeat from *-* the whole round.
ROUND 2: *4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in double crochet *, repeat from *-*- the complete round and finish with 1 double crochet in the last double crochet. Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVES:
Crochet up 66-72-78 treble crochet around the armhole (approx. 5 treble crochet in each double treble crochet group and approx. 33-36-39 treble crochet around the chain-space – start mid under the sleeve).

The next round is worked as follows:
* 1 treble crochet in the first/ next treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 treble crochet *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 33-36-39 treble crochet + 33-36-39 chain stitches.
Continue working as follows:
ROUND 1: * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 treble crochet/chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the next treble crochet/chain stitch *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 11-12-13 chain-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 treble crochet around each chain-space the whole round = 11-12-13 treble crochet groups.
ROUND 3: Work 2 double treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 2 double treble crochet around each chain-space in the middle of the treble crochet group and 1 chain stitch between each double treble crochet group the whole round = 11-12-13 double treble crochet groups with 1 chain stitch between each.
ROUND 4: * 12 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group *, repeat from *-* the whole round = 11-12-13 chain-spaces, but decrease at the same time 1 chain-space on the round mid under the sleeve as follows: 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next-to-last double treble crochet group on the round, 6 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the double treble crochet group to be skipped, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the chain-space in the middle of the next double treble crochet group = 10-11-12 double treble crochet groups.
Repeat rounds 2-4 and decrease at the same time 1 chain-space every 3rd round so that for each repeat in height there will be 1 double treble crochet group/chain-space less on the round. When there are 6-7-8 double treble crochet groups/chain-spaces on the round, continue working without decreases until the sleeve measures 34-34-35 cm, or to desired length, try the jacket on as you go. Cut and fasten the strand and repeat on the other sleeve.

Mi trovo dopo gli scalfi e sto proseguendo con i 9 aumenti prima nel giro 2 e successivamente nei giri 1 di A3. Non sono sicura di aver capito bene. Le indicazioni dicono che tali aumenti vanno fatti in modo uniforme nel corso del giro, ma non in unaposizione precisa... com'è possibile che il lavoro assuma la forma ovale e nella direzione verticale? Grazie mille Iride

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 17:56:

Buonasera Iride, le spiegazioni del modello sono corrette: gli aumenti vengono fatti a intervalli regolari su tutto il giro. Continui a seguire le istruzioni e il lavoro verrà da sè. Buon lavoro!

Henriette 12.08.2019 - 21:21:

Er det en tastefejl at der står at man skal hækle 9 luftmasker når man hækler A2 delen. Symbolet der bruges er det samme som 12 luftmasker når man kigger på diagrammet?

DROPS Design 16.08.2019 kl. 10:43:

Hej Henriette, tak for info! Nu er teksten til symbolet rettet i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Henriette 09.08.2019 - 19:33:

Hej hvorfor er der 2 forskellige symboler for 12 luftmasker ? en med og en uden prikker

DROPS Design 16.08.2019 kl. 10:53:

Hej Henriette, det er blevet rettet i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Lily 01.07.2019 - 23:21:

Hi, No but that's my point, it says 14-"20-18", not 14-"18-20". 20 is a larger number than 18 so L-XL should have 18 and XXL-XXXL should have 20, isn't it?

DROPS Design 02.07.2019 kl. 08:50:

Dear Lilly, in the larger size you will skip more stich-groups for the armholes and work less stitch-groups between armholes, in the 2nd size you will crochet less stitch-groups than in larger size, but will hten work more stitch-groups between armholes. But of course, you can adjust to your own size/wishes if you llike to. Happy crocheting!

Lily 28.06.2019 - 17:31:

Hi! In the part were we first make the armholes, the instructions say to "repeat from *-* in total 14-20-18 times". Is it a typo for 14-18-20, or is it actually 14 for S-M, 20 for L-XL and 18 for XXL-XXXL? I assume it's a typo, but I just wanted to double check. Thanks :)

DROPS Design 01.07.2019 kl. 06:46:

Dear Lily, no typo here, you will skip 1 more st-group in larger size, and then repeat 2 more times in 2nd size, so that armholes are larger in larger sizes. Happy crocheting!

Coni 12.05.2019 - 13:24:

Ich brauch wieder Hilfe Ich muss echt sagen, das Eure Anleitungen sehr unverständlich geschrieben sind..... A2 habe ich gehäkelt und komme auch auf 36 Luftmaschenbögen. Nun soll ich, A3 wie A2 arbeiten( die Zunahmen) Nur komme ich so auf mehr Doppelstäbchen-Gruppen als nur 45!!! Ihr Link den sie mir beim letzten Mal geschickt haben, bringt mich auch nicht weiter, da dort unter A3 beschrieben wird, wie ich die Armausschnitte häkeln soll........

DROPS Design 13.05.2019 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Coni, Sie sollen 9 Zunahmen häkeln = 36 Luftmaschenbogen + 9 Zunahmen = 45 Luftmaschenbogen bei der 1. Reihe in A.3 = 45 Doppelstäbchen-Gruppen wenn A.3 fertig ist. Die Zunahmen häkeln Sie wie die Zunahmen der 6. Runde in A.1 gearbeitet werden. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Coni 10.05.2019 - 08:43:

Guten Morgen, ich komme einfach nicht weiter. Ich habe A1 fertig gehäkelt und komme auch auf die angegebenen 27 Doppelstäbchen Gruppen. Mein Problem ist, das wenn ich nach A2 weiter arbeite, sollte ich auf 36 Luftmaschen-Bogen kommen... Es werden aber immer 40. und ja, ich halte mich an die Anleitung: 1 fm um die Lm zwischen den Dstb-Gruppe, 9 Lm, 1 Fm und die LM zwischen der Dstb-Gruppe etc........ Ich komme einfach nicht weiter

Coni 09.05.2019 - 14:12:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage zu Diagramm A1. Werden die Luftmaschen-Bögen in die gleiche Masche beendet wie begonnen? Oder werden sie zwischen die festen Maschen gehäkelt?? Danke im Voraus für die Hilfe

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 14:24:

Liebe Coni, bei der 3. Runde häkeln Sie die Feste Maschen um die Luftmasche der 2. Runde, und zwischen jede feste Maschen häkeln Sie 12 Luftmaschen. Bei der 6. Runde häkeln Sie die festen Maschen um die Luftmasche (siehe Diagram) und zwischen jede feste Masche häkeln Sie 9 Luftmaschen - nur das letzte Luftmaschenbogen wird unterschiedlich: 6 Lm+ 1 Dreifach-Stb (3. Runde) / 5 Lm + 1 Doppelstb. (6. Runde). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Virginia 09.04.2019 - 15:22:

Buongiorno! Non riesco a capire come dovrei lavorare i giri con A4 e A5, potrei avere una descrizione dettagliata, per favore? Non mi tornano i gruppi di maglie alte doppie finali!! Sono meno di quelli che dovrebbero essere! Grazie in anticipo per l'aiuto! Buona giornata

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 21:43:

Buongiorno Virginia. Purtroppo in questa sede non riusciamo a dettagliare le spiegazioni. Verifichi di aver aumentato i 7 archi di cat quando lavora la prima riga di A3 e di contare nei gruppi di m.a doppie anche quelle verso il collo. Per un aiuto più personalizzato , può contattare il suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia, mandando anche una fotografia del suo lavoro . Buon lavoro!

Stine 30.03.2019 - 20:52:

Hvor er diagram A1? Jeg skjønner ikke begynnelsen på oppskriften

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 15:24:

Hej Stine, Du starter i midten af cirklen som er A.1 og følger diagrammet mod solen række for række. God fornøjelse!
