The first double treble crochet at the beginning of the round is replaced by 4 chain stitches, the round is finished with 1 slip stitch in the 4th chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
----------------------------------------------------------

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.

I found I had done Row 6 wrong, so do not need an answer to my last question. Thank you! The garments you have patterns for are lovely, but your patterns are very difficult for us Americans to understand. It was helpful to me to find someone had posted a link to your forum where Nathalie had lots of pictures and explanations about making your Fall Festival design.

Patsy L Gadberry 17.03.2018 - 04:29:

How can I complete A.1 - after row 6 multiple chains are needed between the shells so that they will lie flat, but there is nothing on your chart. I have tried using both a smaller and a larger hook with less and more tension, but it will not lie flat after adding the double crochet shells (2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc) of row 7. There is no instruction as to what to do to allow enough room so the row will lie down. What am I supposed to do?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:12:

Dear Mrs Gadberry, make sure you ave the correct number of ch-spaces on 6th row (= 27 including the last one) and make sure to keep same tension as for swatch. Happy crocheting!

Karin 26.09.2017 - 12:32:

Ik opgemerkt dat er een foutje in de nederlandse beschrijving staat. In deze tekst :"Herhaal toeren 1-3 nog 1-3 5-5-6 keer " maar die 2de 1-3 staat er teveel. Het moet gewoon 5-5-6 keer zijn.

DROPS Design 26.09.2017 kl. 19:49:

Hallo Karin, Dankjewel voor het doorgeven; ik heb het aangepast :)

Karin 31.08.2017 - 12:28:

Hoi, bestaat de tutorial ook in het Nederlands aub?

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 17:11:

Hallo Karin, Alle video's die onderaan het patroon staan, staat een Nederlandse beschrijving bij. De video's zelf zijn zonder geluid, op die manier kunnen ze internationaal gebruikt worden. Of bedoel je wat anders met de tutorial?

Meike 28.06.2017 - 13:04:

Ich würde die Jacke gerne in etwas dickerem Garn mit einer 4er-Nadel häkeln. Welches Garn kann ich nehmen?

DROPS Design 28.06.2017 kl. 17:59:

Liebe Meike, dieses Modell gibt es mit Big Delight - siehe hier, dh mit einem Häkelnadeln Nr 5,5. Sonnst finden Sie alle Garngruppe, die Anleitung sollen Sie dann nach Ihrer Maschenprobe anpassen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Laura 03.06.2017 - 14:48:

Buon giorno. Scusi ma quindi il 4 giro delle maniche finisce con una m.b. Nel L ultimo gruppo di m.a.d. senza chiudere con bassissima? Grazie e saluti

DROPS Design 03.06.2017 kl. 15:25:

Buongiorno Laura. Non dovrebbe chiudere con una m.bss. Se però non le piace in base a come inizia il giro successivo, può provare a chiudere con un 1 m.bss. Buon lavoro!

Laura 03.06.2017 - 00:28:

Buona sera. Sino arrivata alla riga 4 delle maniche ma non capisco. Si inizia con 12 cat dalla fine del terzo giro poi.una m.alta doppia x 11 archi...pero poi si deve diminuire..ma quando alla fine del.giro ? E come? Non mi e chiaro. Grazi e x l aiuto laura

DROPS Design 03.06.2017 kl. 07:07:

Buongiorno Laura. Deve diminuire al centro, sotto la manica (quindi alla fine del giro) quando arriva al penultimo gruppo di maglie alte doppie. Intorno all'arco di catenelle al centro del penultimo gruppo di maglie alte doppie lavora: 1 maglia bassa, 6 catenelle, 1 maglia alta attorno all'arco di catenelle al centro del gruppo di maglie alte doppie da saltare, 6 catenelle, 1 maglia bassa attorno all'arco di catenelle al centro del gruppo di maglie alte doppie successivo = 10-11-12 gruppi di maglie alte doppie. Buon lavoro!

Laura 01.06.2017 - 07:18:

Buon giorno. Per iniziare le.maniche al dritto del.lavoro faccio 5 m.a nei 7 gruppi di.m.a.d mentre dall.altro.lato in.totale 33 m.a. ma.non mi trovo.pero 66 in totale...grazie e saluti

DROPS Design 01.06.2017 kl. 08:50:

Buongiorno Laura. Il numero complessivo delle maglie alte per la manica deve essere 66 (taglia S). Può p.es in un gruppo di m.a.d riprendere solo 4 m.a e non 5 e riprendere 32 m.a (e non 33) nell'arco di cat; oppure riprendere 4 m.a in due gruppi di m.a.d e 33 m.a nell'arco di cat. Buon lavoro!

Laura 28.05.2017 - 21:42:

Buona sera sono al secondo giro dopo gli scalfi. Le istruzioni dicono di proseguire con A3 aumentando 9 archi di catenelle. Ma si aumenta anche sopra gli scafi? Grazie e cordiali saluti

DROPS Design 28.05.2017 kl. 22:31:

Buonasera Laura. Gli aumenti sono previsti su tutto il giro, anche sugli scalfi. Buon lavoro!

Laura 27.05.2017 - 11:34:

Buon giorno. Sono alla riga 3 di a1. Non capisco bene devo iniziare con le 6 cat e poi un bassissima o la tripla che vedo nel diagramma? Poi si prosegue con m.b. su far e 12 cat chiuse insieme nella prima x tutto il giro?? Poi però non chiudo con bassissima? Grazie laura

DROPS Design 27.05.2017 kl. 19:35:

Buonasera Laura. Deve lavorare 1 m.bss nel primo arco di cat, 1 cat, 1 m.bassa intorno all’arco di cat, * 12 cat, 1 m.bassa intorno all’arco di cat successivo*; ripete le istruzioni tra gli asterischi su tutto il giro e finisce con 6 cat, 1 maglia alta tripla nella prima m.bassa all’inizio del giro. Deve avere 18 archi di cat. Non chiude il giro con la m.bassissima; si chiuderà con il quarto giro. Trova l’inizio del giro alla sinistra della riga continua verticale. Buon lavoro!
