INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.5a and A.5c).
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The piece is worked in the round from middle of front/back piece and outwards. You first work a circle, then continue so that it becomes a square making the front/back piece. Then the shoulders are worked and finally you work back and forth along bottom of body. The sleeves are worked in the round, top down.

BACK PIECE:
Start with crochet hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US I/9 and Paris and work pattern according to diagram A.1b a total of 10 times on the round (A.1a shows how the rounds start and finish). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1a and A.1b are finished, the circle measures approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4'' in diameter. Continue working to make a square as follows: Start on the round with an arrow and work A.2b a total of 4 times in the round (A.2a shows how the rounds start and finish). When A.2a and A.2b are finished the piece measures approx. 47 x 47 cm / 18½" x 18½''. Cut the strand.
Fasten the strand with 1 single crochet around the chain-space marked with a black star - see last round in A.2b, and work from the round marked with an arrow as follows:
Work A.3a (shows how the rounds start and finish), work A.3b in the same chain-space and the next chain-space (= corner), * work A.3c to the next corner (= 10 repeats), work A.3b around the next 2 chain-spaces (= corner) *, work from *-* 2 more times, work A.3c to the start of the round.
Work the last round in the diagrams. Sizes S + M + L + XL are now finished.
For sizes XXL + XXXL continue by repeating the last 2 rounds 1 more time in height

All sizes:
There are now 2-2-2-2-4-4 rounds of A.3a - A.3c around the square and 13-13-13-13-15-15 fans (= 2 double crochets + 3 chain stitches + 2 double crochets) along each side of the square. The piece measures approx. 55-55-55-55-63-63 x 55-55-55-55-63-63 cm / 21½"-21½"-21½"-21½"-24 3/4"-24 3/4" x 21½"-21½"-21½"-21½"-24 3/4"-24 3/4''. Cut the strand.
Sizes S + M are finished. For sizes L + XL + XXL + XXXL continue working outwards on each side of the back piece. Fasten the strand with 1 single crochet around the middle chain-space in one of the corners and work from the row with an arrow from the right side as follows:
Work A.4a, A.4b until there is 1 double crochet group left (= 2 double crochets + 3 chain stitches + 2 double crochets) before the next corner, A.4c.
Repeat the last 2 rows of A.4a - A.4c until you have worked a total of 1-2-2-3 rows in height.

All sizes:
You have now worked 0-0-1-2-2-3 rows of A.4a - A.4c outwards on the one side. Work in the same way on the opposite side of the square.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
Work for the different sizes as follows:

Sizes S + M:
Fasten the strand with 1 single crochet around the chain-space in the corner – see black square on sketch. Work pattern from the row with an arrow in the diagrams back and forth from the right side as follows:
ROW 1: Work A.4a, A.4b 2-2 times, A.5b (= towards neck).
ROW 2: Turn and work the last row in the diagrams back in the same way
ROW 3: Turn and work as for row 1. Cut the strand.

Sizes L + XL, XXL + XXXL:
Fasten the strand with 1 single crochet outermost in the corner – see black square in the sketch. Work pattern from the row with an arrow in the diagrams, back and forth from the right side as follows:
ROW 1: Work A.5a (choose diagram for your size), A.4b 2-2-2-2 times, A.5b (= towards neck).
ROW 2: Turn and work the last row in the diagrams back in the same way.
ROW 3: Turn and work as for row 1. Cut the strand.

BOTTOM OF BACKPIECE:
Insert a marker thread at the bottom of the backpiece and work for the different sizes as follows:

Sizes S + M:
Fasten the strand with 1 single crochet around the chain-space in the corner at the bottom of the backpiece. Work pattern from the row with an arrow in the diagrams back and forth from the right side as follows:
ROW 1: Work A.4a, A.4b 11 times, A.4c.
ROW 2: Turn and work the last row in the diagrams back in the same way.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the piece measures approx. 4-6 cm / 1½"-2 1/4'' from the marker thread at bottom of backpiece. The piece measures approx. 65-67 cm / 25½"-26½'' from the shoulder down. Cut and fasten the strand.

Sew the shoulders together working in each and every stitch along the seam. Insert a marker thread 16-16-18-20-20-22 cm / 6 1/4"-6 1/4"-7-"8"-8"-8 3/4'' from the shoulder down the side (marks the armhole). Sew the side seam from the bottom and up as far as the marker thread in the armhole. Repeat in the other side.

Wat betekent in patroon A.2b het tekentje dat lijkt op een vlindertje met een lang lijfje ?

DROPS Design 27.12.2018 kl. 10:36:

Dag Yvonne,

Vermoedelijk bedoel je het 8e symbool van boven in de lijst? Dit is een half stokje in de steek, dus je maakt het halve stokje in de steek van de vorige toer en niet om de steek.

Yvonne 23.12.2018 - 23:59:

Wat betekent in A2.b het tekentje dat lijkt op een vlinder met lang lijfje?

Tanja Rocks 22.09.2018 - 22:15:

Hallo, ich finde einige der Zeichnungen nicht. Alle mit den Zahlen 2 + 3 sind nicht aufzufinden. Können Sie mir helfen? Danke und Gruß Tanja

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 09:03:

Liebe Tanja, ich verstehe Ihre Frage leider nicht. Welche Zeichnungen in welchem Diagram finden Sie nicht? Es sollten alle Zeichnungen im Diagram unter Diagram Text beschrieben werden.

Iben 14.08.2018 - 12:28:

Hei. Jeg skal til å hekle denne fine genseren, men ser i forklaringen til diagrammet at noen av tegnene er erstattet med åpne firkanter. Er dette en feil?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 13:47:

Hej Iben, alle diagramtegn findes med på nettet. Prøv at tage en refresh. God fornøjelse!

Giusi Rapella 11.06.2018 - 11:23:

Buongiorno! Devo unire davanti e dietro...dove si dice \"Cucire le spalle insieme maglia con maglia\" cosa si intende? Prendo tutta la maglia o solo l\'esterno o l\'interno? e negli archi di catenelle lavoro intorno all\'arco? Grazie!

DROPS Design 11.06.2018 kl. 11:48:

Buongiorno Giusi. Può cucire nel filo esterno delle maglie, anche quando queste sono catenelle. Buon lavoro!

Christina Isberg 05.05.2018 - 18:15:

Om man inte ökar antalet maskor på varje varv blir det ju en mössa, inte en ruta, varv 13- 15 och snare också.

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 10:24:

Hei Christina. Det er fort gjort å hekle litt for stramt når man hekler luftmasker; en luftmaske skal være like bred som en stav eller en fastmaske. Vær ekstra obs på at du overholder heklefastheten, så skal du se at plagget ikke bøyer seg innover. Selvom maskeanetallet forblir det samme fra 12-14 omgang på A.1 (og igjen fra 16-18 omgang) vil sirkelen likevel vokse utover da luftmaskebuene er mer bøyd på de innerste omgangene mens de har rettet seg ut på de ytterste. God fornøyelse.

Thanks awfully for this gorgeous pattern. Is it suitable for a wool mohair blend?

Marjo Bodewes 18.02.2018 - 19:44:

In het telpatroon staan bij A1a dichte driehoekjes. Welke steek moet ik hiervoor gebruiken. Er staan ook boogjes. Ik neem aan dat dat een losse betekent.

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 21:25:

Hallo Marjo, De zwartgekleurde driehoekjes staan voor 5 lossen (het 5e symbool in de lijst)

Marit Strindlund 02.02.2018 - 11:58:

När kommer beskrivningen ut?

DROPS Design 02.02.2018 kl. 14:00:

Hei Marit. Den kommer snart den er ferdig skrevet, tipper den kommer i neste uke. vmh Drops design

Marit Strindlund 31.01.2018 - 12:10:
