INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

CROCHET INFO:
Begin every double crochet row with 3 chain stitches (replaces first double crochet).
When sleeves are worked in the round, begin and end every round in A.1 as follows:
Begin 1st and 2nd round in A.1 with 3 chain stitches (do not replace first double crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round
Begin 3rd and 4th round in A.1 with 3 chain stitches (replace first double crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round

STRIPES:
In the first 3 repetitions of the diagrams vertically work 1st and 2nd row with white, work the remaining rows in light blue purple - read COLOR CHANGE. Then work the remaining repetitions of A.1 in light blue purple.

COLOR CHANGE: 
When changing color work as follows: Work last double crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then continue working.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches to be increased/decreased over (e.g. 24 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 3) = 8.
To increase evenly in this example work 2 double crochets in every 8th double crochet.
To decrease evenly in this example work every 7th and 8th double crochet together. Decrease 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets together as follows: Work 1 double crochet in/around first stitch, but wait with last pull through, work 1 double crochet in/around next double crochet/stitch, but on last pull through pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Yoke and body are worked back and forth from mid front, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round. Band and neck edge are worked back and forth at the end.

YOKE:
Work 144-154-158-168-168-175 chain stitches (including 3 chain stitches to turn with) on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with light blue purple. Work 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 double crochets) - read CROCHET INFO, 1 double crochet in each of the next 0-3-0-3-3-3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* = 122-131-134-143-143-149 double crochets.
Work first row from wrong side as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 18-21-21-24-24-24 double crochets, * work 2 double crochets in next double crochet, 1 double crochet in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* over the next 22 double crochets (= 11 double crochets increased), 1 double crochet in each of the next 42-45-48-51-51-57 double crochets, repeat from *-* over the next 22 double crochets (= 11 double crochets increased), 1 double crochet in each of the last 18-21-21-24-24-24 double crochets = 144-153-156-165-165-171 double crochets.
Work next row as follows from right side - read STRIPES:
Work 1 double crochet in first double crochet, A.1 over 21-24-24-27-27-27 double crochets (= 7-8-8-9-9-9 repetitions of 3 double crochets) (= left front piece), A.2 (= 2 double crochets), A.1 over 12 double crochets (= 4 repetitions), A.3 over 1 double crochet, A.1 over 12 double crochets (= 4 repetitions), A.2 over 2 double crochets (= left sleeve), A.1 over 42-45-48-51-51-57 double crochets (= 14-15-16-17-17-19 repetitions) (= back piece), A.2 over 2 double crochets, A.1 over 12 double crochets (= 4 repetitions), A.3 over 1 double crochet, A.1 over 12 double crochets (= 4 repetitions), A.2 over 2 double crochets (= right sleeve), finish with A.1 over 21-24-24-27-27-27 double crochets (= 7-8-8-9-9-9 repetitions) and 1 double crochet in last double crochet (= right front piece).

On last row in A.1 to A.3 increase 0-0-3-3-3-0 double crochets evenly over each of the front pieces – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP and 0-0-6-0-12-3 double crochets evenly over back piece (= 0-0-12-6-18-3 double crochets increased in total). When A.1 to A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 202-211-226-229-241-232 double crochets on last row. Piece measures approx. 5 cm / 2''.
Continue to work 1 double crochet in first and last double crochet and A.1 as before. Repeat diagram A.2 over the 2 middle double crochets in each repetition over A.2 0-0-1-1-2-3 more times (i.e. A.2 is worked 1-1-2-2-3-4 times in total vertically), over the remaining stitches work A.1 (i.e. work 2 repetitions of A.1 over every A.3 on sleeves and work 2 repetitions of A.1 on each side of A.2).
When A.2 is done there are 202-211-274-277-337-376 double crochets on last row. Piece measures approx. 5-5-8-8-12-15 cm / 1 7/8"-1 7/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-4 5/8"-5 7/8".

I.e. over every A.2 work as follows: Work 2 repetitions of A.1 (= 6 double crochets), A.4 (= 2 double crochets) and 2 repetitions of A.1 (= 6 double crochets). Every time A.4 is repeated work 16 repetitions more of A.1.
When A.4 is done there are 250-283-322-349-385-424 double crochets on last row. Piece measures approx. 12-15-15-18-19-22 cm / 4 5/8"-5 7/8"-5 7/8"-7"-7 3/8"-8 5/8".

When piece measures 1 cm / 3/8'' from where body was divided from sleeves, decrease double crochets evenly every time A.1 is repeated vertically, decrease on 3rd row in A.1 as follows: Decrease 6 double crochets 3-3-3-2-2-2 times in total and 3 double crochets 0-0-1-0-1-1 time in total = 170-185-203-227-254-281 stitches. Now repeat A.1 56-61-67-75-84-93 times in width. When piece measures 14 cm / 5½'' from where sleeve was divided from body, increase on every 3rd row in A.1 as follows: Increase 15 double crochets evenly 0-0-1-1-0-0 times in total, increase 9 double crochets evenly 3-3-3-2-4-3 times in total, increase 6 double crochets evenly 1-1-0-1-0-1 time in total = 203-218-245-266-290-314 stitches.

Continue with A.1 in the round (= 23-26-29-31-32-34 times in width).
When sleeve measures 1 cm / 3/8'', decrease double crochets evenly every time A.1 is repeated vertically, decrease on 3rd round in A.1 as follows: Decrease 6 double crochets 0-1-3-5-6-6 times in total and 3 double crochets 5-6-4-2-0-0 times in total = 54-54-57-57-60-66 double crochets.

Hola, en la información del canesu me es complicado entender, me enreda tanto A1 luego A2 y así sucesivamente siendo que son muy parecida, ya que uno son los aumentos del tejido y el otro no, me podrían enviar un un diagrama algo mas claro o uniendo todo los diagramas y realizar solo uno, mostrando los lugares de aumento y los que no, se que es algo grande lo que pido pero me encantan sus patrones y seria muy satisfactorio recibir alguna ayuda para comprender mejor el patrón, gracias

Hola Barbara. No enviamos ni patrones ni diagramas. Debido al limitado espacio en la web no se pueden publicar los diagrama en tamaño completo. Puedes acudir a una tienda especializada de Drops para recibir ayuda en la elaboración de la prenda.

Ewelina 13.07.2018 - 17:09:

Robilam juz sukienke wg waszego wzoru i opisu i nie bylo zadnych problemow. Opis tego swetra jest dla mnie nielogiczny. 154 oczka lancuszka w tym 3 zwrotne w ogole nie pasuja do dalszej instrukcji i liczby slupkow. W 3 rzedzie jest mowa o *2 slupki w nastepny slupek, 1 slupek w nastepny slupek*, powtorzyc od *-* ponad 22 nastepnymi slupkami (= dodanych 11 slupkow), co daje w rzeczywistosci o jedno powtorzenie wiecej niz w dalszej czesci, gdzie jest powtorzyc od *-* ponad 22 nastepnymi slupkami

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 - 10:35:

TAM PÓŹNIEJ BĘDZIE RĘKAW), 1 słupek w każdy z 45 następnych słupków, powtórzyć od *-* (2 słupki w następny słupek, 1 słupek w następny słupek) ponad 22 następnymi słupkami (=dodanych 11 słupków), 1 słupek w każdy z 21 ostatnich słupków = 153 słupki. 21+ (22+11) + 45 + (22+11) + 21 = 153. Mam nadzieję, że coś rozjaśniłam. Pozdrawiam

Ewelina 12.07.2018 - 19:10:

Witam, skonczylam pierwszy raz schemat A1 do A3 na wysokosc i niestety kilkukrotnie nie wychodzi wymagana w opisie liczba słupków. Dla rozmiaru M jest to o 10 wiecej niz sugeruje autor tlumaczenia. Wlasciwie od samego poczatku liczby podawane w opisie mijaly sie z rzeczywistoscia podczas przerabiania poszczegolnych rzedow. Uwazam, ze pierwszy blad wkrada się już w akapicie drugim gdzie jest instrukcja przerabiania pierwszego rzedu na lewej stronie. Mozna zatem prosic o korekte?

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 kl. 10:33:

Witaj Ewelino! Sprawdziłam komentarze do tego i podobnego sweterka i nikt nie zgłaszał pomyłki. Dodatkowo rozrysowałam dokładnie drugi akapit, o którym piszesz i tam również nie znalazłam pomyłki. Przeanalizujmy dla rozmiaru M: przerobić 1-szy rząd na lewej stronie robótki następująco: 1 słupek w każdy z 21 pierwszych słupków, *2 słupki w następny słupek, 1 słupek w następny słupek*, powtarzać od *-* ŁĄCZNIE ponad 22 następnymi słupkami (= dodanych 11 słupków, cd. za chwilę

Anna 16.06.2018 - 09:42:

Beste, ik ben aan dit leuke vest begonnen. Ik heb A1, A2 en A3 eenmaal in de hoogte gehaakt en heb nu 211 stokjes en ongeveer 5 cm. Helaas daarna begrijp ik de beschrijving niet meer. Als ik A1 nogmaals in de hoogte haak, kan het niet zo zijn dat het werk nog steeds 5 cm is. Bovendien is het niet duidelijk of in deze toeren nu wel of niet gemeerderd wordt. Ik zou denken van wel, maar het aantal stokjes blijft volgens de beschrijving 211. Zou het fijn vinden wat uitleg te krijgen. Veel dank!

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 13:41:

Dag Anna, Zoals ik het lees komt het erop neer dat je dat stuk (waarbij je opnieuw eindigt met 211 steken en 5 cm) dus niet haakt voor de maten S en M. Ik zal het voor de zekerheid navragen bij de designafdeling, zodat er evt. een aanvullende uitleg op kan komen ter verduidelijking.

Aanvulling:

Bovenstaand stuk haak je inderdaad niet voor maat S en M

Barbara Hatherall 05.05.2018 - 15:57:

I do not fully understand the sizing on the chart. I know it is in c.m. but is the measurement taken all around the body or just across the front?

DROPS Design 06.05.2018 kl. 08:43:

Dear Barbara, the measurments were taken the piece lying down on a flat surface, as it is drawn in the shematics. Just across the frint. Happy crafting!
