CROCHET INFO:
For when the piece is worked back and forth.
On every row with treble crochets, the first treble crochet is replaced by 3 chain stitches.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets in 1 treble crochet/double crochet.

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. A.6 shows how the pattern starts and finishes when worked in the round.
----------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
The piece is worked top down from mid back. Work 156-156-166-171-176-186 chain stitches with hook size 4 mm and Cotton Merino and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work the next round as follows:
1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch (= 2 treble crochets), 1 treble crochet in each of the next 2 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* = 124-124-132-136-140-148 treble crochets (= the right side). Continue by working the piece back and forth. Every row is worked together at the end of the row with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the row. Turn the piece. 

READ CROCHET INFO! Insert 12 markers in the piece from the wrong side as follows: Work 15-15-17-18-19-21 treble crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-5-3-3-4-2 treble crochet/s evenly within these stitches – READ INCREASE TIP, insert the first marker, * work 4 treble crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 16 treble crochets, insert the next marker, * work 4 treble crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 30-30-34-36-38-42 treble crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 2-10-6-6-8-4 treble crochet evenly within these stitches, insert the next marker, * work 4 treble crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 16 treble crochets, insert the next marker, * work 4 treble crochets, insert the next marker *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 15-15-17-18-19-21 treble crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-5-3-3-4-2 treble crochet/s evenly within these stitches = 128-144-144-148-156-156 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Turn the piece. On the next row from the right side increase as follows: Increase 1 treble crochet on each side of each marker (= 24 treble crochets increased), repeat the increases every row from the right side in total 3-3-4-6-7-9 times, then increase before each marker (= 12 treble crochets increased), repeat the increase on every row from the right side in total 4-4-4-2-2-0 times = 248-264-288-316-348-372 treble crochets. The piece now measures approx. 17-17-19-19-21-21 cm.

On the next row, work as follows: 35-38-42-47-53-57 treble crochets (= half the back piece), 8 chain stitches (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 treble crochets from the previous row (will later be used for the sleeve), 70-76-84-94-106-114 treble crochets AT THE SAME TIME increase 1-1-3-1-1-3 treble crochet/s evenly within these stitches (front piece), 8 chain stitches (armhole), skip 54-56-60-64-68-72 treble crochets from the previous row (will later be used for the sleeve) and 35-38-42-47-53-57 treble crochets (= half the back piece) = 157-169-187-205-229-247 treble crochets/chain stitches. The piece is now worked in the round without turning. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
Continue by working the first 2 rounds in A.x (A.1/A.2) as follows - see A.6 for how the rounds start and finish: A.1 in total 25-27-30-33-37-40 times in width, finish with A.2. Work the 3rd round in A.x (= round of treble crochet) and increase 18 treble crochets evenly along the round = 175-187-205-223-247-265 treble crochets. Then work the first 3 rounds in A.y, but A.1 is now worked 28-30-33-36-40-43 times in width. Work the 4th round in A.y (= round of treble crochet) and increase 18 treble crochets evenly along the round = 193-205-223-241-265-283 treble crochets.

Now work the first 2 rounds in A.z. Then repeat the next 2 rounds in A.z until the piece measures approx. 25-28-30-30-33-33 cm – adjust after the last of the 2 rounds. Then work the 2 last rounds in A.z – AT THE SAME TIME on the last round (= round of treble crochet) increase 6 treble crochets evenly along the round = 199-211-229-247-271-289 treble crochets. Then work the first 3 rounds in A.y, but A.1 is now worked 32-34-37-40-44-47 times in width. Work the 4th round in A.y (= round of treble crochet) and increase 6-6-12-6-6-12 treble crochets evenly along the round = 205-217-241-253-277-301 treble crochets.

Continue by working the next 5 rounds as follows: A.3, A.4 in total 16-17-19-20-22-24 times in width, finish with A.5. Then work A.y as follows: A.1 in total 33-35-39-41-45-49 times in width, finish with A.2. Then work the last round in A.3-A.5 as follows: A.3, A.4 in total 16-17-19-20-22-24 times in width, finish with A.5. Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVE:
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
The sleeve is worked in the round top down - see A.6 for how the rounds start and finish. Start to work mid under the sleeve as follows: Work 1 double crochet in the 5th chain stitch of the 8 chain stitches worked in the armhole of the body. Work 3 chain stitches (= 1 treble crochet). Continue to work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches. Then work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet over the sleeve AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1-3-1-5-3-1 treble crochet/s evenly within these stitches – READ DECREASE TIP, before working 1 treble crochet in each of the 4 remaining chain stitches under the sleeve = 61-61-67-67-73-79 treble crochets.

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

Now work the first 2 rounds in A.z (A.1/A.2). Then repeat the next 2 rounds in A.z until the piece measures approx. 25-25-25-25-25-25 cm – adjust after the last of these 2 rounds. Then work the last 2 rounds in A.z – AT THE SAME TIME on the last round, (= treble crochet round) decrease 6-6-6-6-6-6 treble crochets evenly along the round = 49-49-55-55-61-67 treble crochets. Then work A.y, but A.1 is now worked 7-7-8-8-9-10 times in width. Then work the last round in A.3 and A.5 as follows: A.3 in total 7-7-8-8-9-10 times in width, finish with A.5. Cut and fasten the strand. The sleeve measures approx. 33-33-33-33-33-33 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

NECKLINE:
Work a border along the neckline, use hook size 4 mm and Cotton Merino. Start mid back from the right side, work trebles in the chain stitches with trebles in them (i.e. do not work in the chain stitches that were shipped) = 124-124-132-136-140-148 treble crochets - AT THE SAME TIME decrease 27-27-29-33-31-33 treble crochets evenly along these treble crochets = 97-97-103-103-109-115 treble crochets. Then work the last round in A.3 and A.5 as follows: Work A.3 in total 15-15-16-16-17-18 times in width, finish with A.5. Cut and fasten the strand.

Can you please help me elaborate the A6 diagram in words. "Continue by working the first 2 rounds in A.x (A.1/A.2) as follows - see A.6 for how the rounds start and finish: A.1 in total 25-27-30-33-37-40 times in width, finish with A.2" I am getting the pattern either 24 or 26 times. Thank you

DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 07:36:

Dear Mrs Hombali, A.6 shows how to start and end the rounds (1 or 3 or 4 ch at the beg of the round and finish with 1 sl st in the first/3rd/4th ch from beg of round); then repeat A.1 (= 6 sts) a total of 25 times (1st size) then work A.2 (= 7 sts) 1 time = there will be a total of 26 repeats bu the last repeat (= A.2) is worked over a different number of sts than the one repeated around. Happy crocheting!

Aditi Hombali 05.08.2019 - 22:19:

Can you please explain the steps, i am finding it difficult to understand. when i add up all the stitches it sums to 236 instead of 248. Thank you "repeat the increases 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 = 248-264-288-316-348-372 double crochets".

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 11:39:

Dear Mrs Hombali, you start with 128 sts, then increase 24 sts a total of 3 times = 24x3= 72 sts = 200 sts - then increase 12 sts a total of 4 times = 12x4= 48 sts = 248 sts. Happy crocheting!

Linda 05.06.2019 - 20:37:

I understand that I am only to do the increases on the right side. When it says to repeat the increase to each right side row, I am getting more stitches on one side of midback than the other. Am I to alternate increasing on the left and right side of the marker to ensure I have the same number of stitches on both sides?

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 09:54:

Dear Linda, when you increase on every other row = on every row from RS you increase a total of 24 sts: 1 st on each side of each marker (= 2 sts in last st before marker, slip marker, 2 sts in next st after marker) and repeat these increase at each of the 12 markers = 24 sts are increased. Then you will increase 1 st before each marker (= 12 sts inc per row) on every row from RS (= on every other row). Happy crocheting!

Verolland 21.02.2019 - 07:12:

Bonjour, que signifie pourl’empiecement « crocheter 15 brides en même temps? » et « augmenter au dessus de ces mailles ? «  faut il tourner l’ouvrage? Excusez moi, je ne connais pas ces expressions... merci

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 10:25:

Bonjour Verolland, en taille S-M, vous crochetez 15 brides en augmentant 1-5 brides = vous aurez 16-20 brides au-dessus des 15 brides du rang précédent, de même quand vous crochetez ensuite 30 brides en augmentant 2-10 brides, crochetez les 30 brides suivantes en crochetant 2-10 fois 2 brides dans la même brides = vous avez ainsi 32-40 brides au-dessus des 30 brides du rang précédent. Bon crochet!

Silje Knudsen 24.11.2018 - 18:41:

Hei!\r\nDer er en feil i oppskriften. På tredje omgang i A3-A5 står det at viften betyr: hekle 1 dobbelstav om første luftmaskebue, men vent med siste kast og gjennomtrekk, hekle 1 dobbelstav om neste luftmaskebue og trekk siste kast gjennom alle 3 løkkene på nålen. Dette er det samme som på forrige omgang selv om diagrammet sier noe annet.. Rettelse?

Ulrike 06.05.2018 - 17:09:

Ich komme bei häkelnadel 4 auf 12 cm breite und 9 cm Höhe. Was kann ich machen? LG Ulrike

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 09:33:

Liebe Ulrike, versuchen Sie noch mit einem kleineren Häkelnadel, damit Sie die 18 Stb = 10 cm bekommen, und mal damit versuchen, die Maschen etwas höher "ziehen". Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Alice 30.04.2018 - 21:35:

Het is mij niet duidelijk wanneer een volgende toer begint volgens het diagram. En begint het bij de rij stokjes of juist bij Ax. Ik ben een beginneling, maar vind dit lezen erg lastig. Ik hoop dat u een antwoord heeft!

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 20:59:

Dag Alice, De telpatronen beginnen altijd rechts onderaan en je leest dan de steken van rechts naar links in de eerste toer. De volgende toer is 1 rij daarboven. Bij dit werkstuk haak je de steken samen met een halve vaste (zie instructies) en keer je het werk voor de volgende toer
