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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

CROCHET INFORMATION:
Every round of double crochets begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round (worked in addition to diagrams A.1 – A.5).

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches (e.g. 28 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 2) = 14.
In this example, increase by working 2 double crochets in every 14th stitch.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches (e.g. 64 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 16. In this example, work every 15th and 16th stitch together.
Decrease 1 double crochet by crocheting 2 double crochets together as follows: work 1 double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on the hook), then work the next double crochet but when working the last pull-through, pull the strand through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.8.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE JACKET:
The piece is worked in the round in a circle and armholes are worked on the circle. Then the sleeves are worked in the round and the front pieces are worked back and forth. Finally, you work a finishing edge around the whole circle and front pieces. The start of the round = mid back/neck.

CIRCLE:
Work 6 chain stitches with hook size 5 mm / H/8 and Lima and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work A.1 a total of 13 repeats on the round - read CROCHET INFORMATION! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
When you have finished the next to last round in diagram A.1, continue as follows in the various sizes:

SIZES S/M AND L
There are now 182 stitches on the round and the piece measures approx. 36 cm / 14 1/4'' in diameter.
Now work the armholes and increase stitches evenly on round as follows:
Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch over the first 28-28 stitches and increase 2-2 double crochets evenly – read INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced). Work 32-36 chain stitches, skip the next 32-36 stitches. Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch in the next 62-54 stitches and increase 9-9 double crochets evenly. Work 32-36 loose chain stitches and skip 32-36 stitches. Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch over the remaining 28-28 stitches and increase 2-2 double crochets evenly = 195-195 double crochets.
Now work A.2 (= 13 repeats on the round), BUT over the 32-36 new chain stitches, replace the double crochet on round 2 in diagram A.2 with 1 single crochet around the chain-stitch row. On the round after you have worked the armholes, there are a total of 52-52 chain-spaces on the round and 9-10 chain-spaces and 8-9 single crochets around the 32-36 chain stitches for the armholes. When the whole of A.2 has been completed in height, there are 78 chain-spaces on the round. The piece measures approx. 63 cm / 24 3/4'' in diameter.

SIZE XXL/XXXL
Work the last round in diagram A.1. Then work A.2 (= 13 repeats on the round). When you have completed the first 3 rounds, there are 234 stitches on the round and the piece measures approx. 45 cm / 17 3/4'. Now work the armholes and increase stitches evenly as follows:
Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch over the first 36 stitches and increase 2 double crochets evenly – read INCREASE TIP evenly spaced). Work 40 chain stitches, skip the next 40 stitches. Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch in the next 82 stitches and increase 9 double crochets evenly. Work 40 chain stitches and skip 40 stitches. Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around each chain stitch over the remaining 36 stitches and increase 2 double crochets evenly = 247 double crochets. Continue with A.2, BUT over the 40 new chain stitches, replace the double crochet on the 5th round in diagram A.2 with 1 single crochet around the chain-stitch row. On the round after you have worked armholes, there are a total of 65 chain-spaces on the round and 11 chain-spaces and 10 single crochets around the 40 chain stitches for the armholes. When the whole of A.2 has been completed in height, there are 78 chain-spaces on the round. The piece measures approx. 63 cm / 24 3/4'' in diameter.

ALL SIZES:
Start on the 3rd round in the diagrams and work pattern as follows: Work * A.3, A.4 *, work from *-* a total of 13 times on the round. When A.4 has been completed in height, repeat the last 4 rounds in the diagram to finished length.
When the round marked with a star in diagram A.3 has been completed, sizes S/M and L are finished. For size XXL/XXXL continue until the whole of diagram A.3 has been completed in height. There are now 117-117-130 chain-spaces on the round. The piece measures approx. 91-91-101 cm / 35 3/4"-35 3/4"-39 3/4'' in diameter.

SLEEVES:
The sleeves are worked in the round.
Start mid under the armhole and work 3 chain stitches (= 1 double crochet), work 64-72-80 double crochets evenly spaced in the double crochets/around the chain-spaces in the one armhole (= 32-36-40 double crochets along each side of the armhole). Now work from round 2 in diagram A.5 (a total of 16-18-20 repeats on the round), AT THE SAME TIME on the round with a black spot in the diagram, decrease 4 double crochets evenly along the round. Repeat the last 4 rounds in the diagram and decrease on the round with the black spot a total of 7-8-10 times in height = 36-40-40 double crochets on the round. Then work 3-3-1 more repeats of A.5 in height without decreasing double crochets. The sleeve measures approx. 51-56-56 cm / 20"-22"-22''. Cut and fasten the strand.

RIGHT SIDE PIECE:
Work short rows back and forth on the right front piece. Start in the first double crochet after the 16th-16th-18th chain-space from the beginning of the round and work from the right side. NOTE: In diagram A.6, A.7 and A.8 you work from the row with the arrow and in diagram A.3 you work from the row with the black square!
Work A.6 over the first 10 chain-spaces, work A.3 over 3 chain-spaces, work A.7 over the next 2-2-4 chain-spaces (= 2-2-4 repeats), work A.3 over the next 3 chain-spaces, work A.8 over the next 10 chain-spaces. Continue in this way, back and forth. When A.7 has been completed in height, repeat the last 4 rows in the diagram in height. When A.6 and A.8 have been completed in height and the row with the star in diagram A.3 has been completed, cut and fasten the strand.

LEFT SIDE PIECE:
Skip 29-29-34 chain-spaces along the bottom edge of the jacket and fasten the strand with 1 single crochet in the next double crochet. Then work the left front piece in the same way as the right front piece. There should be 29-29-34 chain-spaces between the front pieces along the bottom edge and 32-32-36 chain-spaces between the front pieces on the neck (= 16-16-18 chain-spaces on each side of the start of the round).

EDGE:
Now work a finishing edge around the whole circle as follows:
ROUND 1: Start at the beginning of the round (= at back of neck), work 3 chain stitches (= 1 double crochet), * 3 chain stitches, skip 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet *, repeat from *-* to end of round, but along the edge of diagrams A.6 and A.8 skip approx. 2 cm / 3/4''. Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
ROUND 2: Work 3 chain stitches (= 1 double crochet), * work 4 double crochets around the next chain-space, 1 chain stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
Cut and fasten the strand.

Can you tell how many rounds are there in A 1, A2, A3 and so on ? What stitch to do in each round.

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 13:22:

Dear Shalini, there are 15 rows in A.1: count from the row with the arrow to the last row in diagram - so that there are 10 rows in A.2, 15 rows in A.3 etc.. Happy crocheting!

Stephanie 02.04.2018 - 15:03:

Ich will mit A.3,A.4 anfangen(Größe S/M). Muss ich erst A.3 bis zum Stern fertig häkeln und dann mit A.4 weiter machen? Oder muss ich beide Diagramme kombinieren? Und wenn ich A.4 in der Höhe fertig habe, muss ich dann wirklich die 4 letzten Reihen von A.3 und A.4 nochmal häkeln, also 8 Reihen?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Stephanie, wenn Sie A.3 und A.4 häkeln, häkeln Sie zuerst die dritte Reihe beide Diagramme, dh: *1. Reihe A.3 (= mit Pfeil), dann 1. Reihe A.4 (= mit Pfeil)* von *bis* die ganze Runde wiederholen, dann häkeln Sie 2. Reihe beide Diagramme bei der nächsten Runde und sw. Wenn A.4 fertig ist, von Anfang an (= mit Pfeil) wiederholen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Marla Benabdallah 26.02.2018 - 14:57:

A6 - Rows 2, 6 and 10 A8 - rows 2, 6 and 10 the rows are x . . . and then there is a symbol which is not listed. it appears to be the height of a double crochet but it is NOT listed in the symbol legend. Please let everyone know what this symbol means please

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 09:13:

Dear Mrs Benabdallah, this symbol has been aded, it's a half double crochet (US-terminology) in the stitch. Happy crocheting!

LuAnne Cutrano 25.02.2018 - 16:40:

Please help! On diag. A.6, what does the symbol in the 2nd row, 2nd st. (looks like a dc with a heart shape on top of it) mean?

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 09:13:

Dear Mrs Cutrano this symbol is a half double crochet (US-crochet terminology). Happy crocheting!

Susan 14.02.2018 - 19:45:

Continued: 4. IF so, how many Chain Spaces should be there? I think I have too many. 5. Back in diagram A.2 for size S/M what row/round should I have started on? If you say row 2 then that'd be 4 rows of chain spaces. I am trying to figure out where I went wrong. e-mail me if you need to. Thank you, Susan

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 09:13:

4. you are repeating (A.3, A.4) a total of 13 times in width, on row with a star you will then have [A.3 (= 6[ ch-spaces), A.4 (= 3 ch-spaces)]x13 = 6+3 x13 = 117 ch-spaces. 5. You start A.2 on row with an arrow = 4 ch-spaces in each A.2 in width x 13 repeats = 52 ch-spaces on 1st row. On next row you will have also 4 ch-spaces, but then after the 2 dc-rows you will have 2 rows with 5 ch-spaces in each A.2 and after the next 2 dc-rows there will be 2 rows with 6 ch-spaces in each A.2. Happy crocheting!

Suasn 14.02.2018 - 19:44:

Continued: 1. Do I start on the 3rd round in both A.3 and A.4 diagrams, is that what the arrows are meant for? 2. I am wondering WHAT is meant by *-* since there is only 1 * in Diagram A.3, or does *-* simply mean = 13 times on the round in A.3? 3. When the * Diagram A.3 row is complete, is THAT where I stop for Size S/M and do not complete A.4?

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 09:09:

Dear Susan, 1. you sstart both A.3 and A.4 on row with an arrow (= row 3 in diagram but row 1 in A.3/A.4). 2. You will repeat (A.3,A.4) around, ie when you have worked 1 time row 1 in A.3, A.4 in width, repeat row 1 in A.3, A.4 all the round, ie you will work alternately A.3 and A.4 to the end of round (first row 1, then row 2 etc...). 3. When A.4 has been worked 1 time in height (= 4 rows), repeat these 4 rows while continuing A.3 to the star (size S/M). In size S/M you don't work A.3 to the end but finish by the row with a star. Last row worked on A.4 will be then also the same = 1st ch-spaces row after the 2 dc-rows. Happy crocheting!

Susan 14.02.2018 - 19:42:

I have 5 more questions. I realize this step is for ALL sizes. However, I am having trouble with the following step: "Start on the 3rd round in the diagrams and work pattern as follows: Work * A.3, A.4 *, work from *-* a total of 13 times on the round. When A.4 has been completed in height, repeat the last 4 rounds in the diagram to finished length. When the round marked with a star in diagram A.3 has been completed, sizes S/M and L are finished. More to follow:

Charlotte Bækdahl 03.02.2018 - 23:06:

Efter diagram A1 skal man hækle en runde, hvor man laver ærmegab og tager ud. Men så skal man derefter følge A2, hvilket jeg ikke kan få til at passe. A2 starter, hvor A1 stopper, og der ser ikke ud til at være taget hensyn til den ekstra række med udtagelser og ærmegab. Række 1 i A2 svarer således ikke til det, der er hæklet, og jeg kan ikke komme videre.

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 15:35:

Hej Charlotte, de nye luftmasker erstatter de luftmasker du hoppede over, det vil sige du häkler nöjagtig som för men over de nye luftmasker istedet for dem du hoppede over. God fornöjelse!

Susan 28.01.2018 - 21:03:

I am making this for a preteen, she is not very big. I am wondering if I NEED to do the right and left sides? Can't I just do the main circle and of course finish the edge and the sleeves and call it perfect? I see in another circle pattern that there is not a right and left side on the pattern. I wish you'd post pictures the models holding out the sides so we could see them better. The photos are very helpful, this is my first circle. Thank you, Susan

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 10:03:

Dear Susan, the pattern pictured has been worked as written in the explanation, ie with extra rows for each front piece as shown in measurement chart. Feel free to adjust the pattern the way you'd like. Happy crocheting!

Katrina Yeager 24.01.2018 - 06:06:

Is this patttern written out long hand somewhere? I do not know how to read crocheting diagrams......it would be really helpful.

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 09:36:

Dear Mrs Yeager, there is only diagrams to this pattern. Start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side and read from the right towards the left every round - you'll find symbol matching each stitch or group of stitches under diagram text. Happy crocheting!
