DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Work 5 chain stitches, skip 1 single crochet + 1 chain space, work 1 single crochet around next chain space + 1 chain space (= 1 repetition decreased), continue pattern as before until 1 chain space remains + 1 single crochet on previous row, skip these stitches and finish with 1 treble crochet in first chain stitch at beginning of previous row (= 1 repetition decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Worked in the round from mid back on back and outwards as a square, then work back and forth on front pieces. Work sleeves back and forth from body, then sew them together under sleeve.

Work 4 chain stitches on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with Flora and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1b 4 times in total on round - diagram A.1a shows how rounds begin and end and is worked in addition to A.1b. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When entire diagram A.1a and A.1b is cut the tread, and begin next round around chain space between last treble group worked and fasten thread with 1 slip stitch in this chain space.
Now work in the round according to diagram A.2 as follows: * Work A.2b, repeat A.2c 6 times in total in width, A.2d *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total on round – diagram A.2a shows how rounds begin and end and are worked in addition to A.2b/c/d. When entire diagram A.2a and A.2b have been worked, square measures approx. 36 x 36 cm / 14 1/4" x 14 1/4''. There are now 4 corner chain spaces (1 double crochet + 6 chain stitches + 1 double crochet) and 14 chain spaces along each of the sides on square. READ THE REST OF BODY BEFORE CONTINUING!

Continue to work as follows: * Work A.3b around corner space, repeat A.3c until 1 chain space remains before corner, work A.3d around next chain space *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total on round – diagram A.3a shows how rounds begin and end and are worked in addition to A.3b/c/d.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' work armholes as follows: Work A.3 as before until first corner, work around chain space as before. Now work chain stitches until middle of next side (i.e. in the middle between first and second corner) as follows: Work 1 chain stitch for every chain stitch/single crochet skipped. Then work pattern as before until the middle between 3rd and 4th corner. Now work chain stitches until 4th corner as follows: Work 1 chain stitch for every chain stitch/single crochet skipped, work around chain space in corner and the rest of round as before. On next round work A.3 as before over all stitches again (i.e. adjust pattern over armholes so that round is correct).
Continue A.3 in the round (repeat the 9 rounds vertically) until square measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'' x 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'' (i.e. approx. 16 cm / 6 1/4'' from armhole in all sizes) – adjust to finish after a round with treble groups. Cut the yarn and insert 1 marker in piece (between first and second corner).

FRONT PIECE:
Now work back and forth between first and second corner. NOTE! Work front pieces without increases. Read CROCHET INFO! Work A.4a around corner, repeat A.4b until 1 chain space remains before corner, work A.4c around this chain space and around corner. Continue pattern as shown in diagram and repeat A.4 vertically until row with treble groups has been worked 2 times in total vertically, then repeat only rows with chain spaces until piece measures approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm / 7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½'' from marker, then work row with treble groups 1 time in all sizes. Piece now measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm / 8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾''-10¼'' from marker. Fasten off. Work the same way on the other side (i.e. work back and forth between third and fourth corner).

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve directly out from armhole on body. Work back and forth, top down and sew together when finished. Begin mid under sleeve and work as follows: Remember CROCHET INFO! Work A.4a around first chain space, repeat A.4b 15-16-17-18-19-20 times in total in width (adjust to distribute A.4b evenly along armhole, i.e. either 2 chain spaces must be worked around same chain space or skip 1 chain space), work A.4c around the last 2 chain spaces. Continue A.4 back and forth – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' (adjust to work next row with chain stitches/single crochets) decrease 1 repetition in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 8-8-8-6-6-6 cm / 3"-3"-3"-2½"-2½"-2½'' 3-3-3-4-4-4 times in total = 12-13-14-15-16-17 chain spaces of 6 stitches after last decrease. Continue until piece measures approx. 28 cm / 11'' in all sizes - finish after a row with chain spaces. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way in the other side of piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the seems under the sleeves, sew in the outermost stitches and make sure that the seam does not tighten the piece.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Diagram A.1b has been corrected. A.2c is repeated 6 times (previously 7). There are 14 chains along each side of the square.

Thanks for the reply. In the diagram < symbol was used for three chain stitches. You may want to change that on the chart

Kathryn 08.10.2018 - 01:34:

I'm confused about the symbol (3 dashes) when starting the front piece of Butterfly Queen in the beginning and end section A.4a & c. When I worked it as 3 times 6 chains or 18 chains after or before the double treble it didn't seem to work. What stitch should be used after or before the double treble in A.4 a & c?

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 09:52:

Dear Kathryn, at the beg of row in A.4a you work 3 chains (= 3 dashes) after the first dtr on row, then 1 sc in same ch space, and 6 chains (= 5th symbol from diagram key) then repeat A.4b = 1 sc in next ch-space, 6 ch and finish with A.4c: 1 sc in next ch-space, 6 ch, 1 sc in next ch-space, 3 chains (= 3 dashes), 1 double treble in same ch-space. Happy crocheting!

Enap 13.08.2018 - 10:24:

Sg Team von drops design, ich habe eine Frage zum Diagramm A1a bzw. A1b: wieso werden in der 4. Runde nach den Anfangsluftmaschen nur vor den 11 Stäbchen 5 Luftmaschen gehäkelt und danach (vor den 3 Stäbchen) nicht? Das sieht total ungleichmässig aus! Ist das ein Fehler?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 07:38:

Liebe Frau Enap, so wurde das Muster gezeichnet und gehäkelt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Nourhan Osama 10.08.2018 - 03:59:

Can you make video show us how we can make the front piece and the armholes sleeves beacuse i am getting hard to understand how i can make it and i want to finish it please i am crochet beginner can you help me please with a video on your youtube channel please help me :(

DROPS Design 10.08.2018 kl. 08:46:

Dear Mrs Osama, you will start the sleeve from RS mid under sleeve and crochet around the chain-spaces skipped for armhole and around the chain-spaces from the front side after armhole (right sleeve). Work then A.4b around adjusting the number of ch-spaces for your size crocheting 2 ch-space in 1 or skipping 1 ch-space depending on your size. Happy crocheting!

Manon Cloutier 17.07.2018 - 16:16:

Bonjour;-) Je voudrais faire ce modèle mais j'aurais besoin d'explications détaillées pour le premier tour, je suis un peu perdue avec lui mais si j'ai une version écrites du diagrammes pour ce premier tour, je devrais être capable de me débrouiller ensuite;-)! Merci d'avance pour votre précieuse aide! Bonne journée

DROPS Design 17.07.2018 kl. 16:54:

Bonjour Mme Cloutier, crochetez d'abord A.1a (= au 1er tour on fait 3 mailles en l'air pour commencer et on terminera le tour par 1 mc dans la 3ème de ces ml ) puis répétez A.1b 4 fois en largeur (soit au 1er tour: *5 ml, 2 brides écoulées ensemble, 4 mailles en l'air, 2 brides écoulées ensemble*, répétez de *-* 4 fois au total et terminez le tour comme indiqué ci-dessus. Bon crochet!

Netty 23.06.2018 - 12:19:

Jammer dat ik op mijn vraag geen antwoord krijg.

Netty Van Der Burgt 21.06.2018 - 14:02:

Ik kom echt niet uit het telpatroon. Te beginnen bij telpatroon A.1b. Waar loopt toer 1 door naar toer 2 enz. Ik moet eerlijk zeggen dat ik al vaker een van jullie patronen geprobeerd heb maar er echt niet uitkom. Ik ben toch al een redelijk ervaren haakster.

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 10:41:

Dag Netty, Je haakt A.1b 4 keer in de rondte (de eerste toer haak je in de lossnlus), zodat je weer aan het begin uitkomt. Op de tweede toer begin je met 3 lossen (het zwartegkleurde ovale symbool van A.1a) en dan haak je 2 stokjes om de lossenlus, 2 stokjes om de volgende lossenlus, enz.

Cilla 20.06.2018 - 16:56:

Hej! I diagram A.1b förstår jag inte hur varvet ovanför varv 8, den med en 14-luftmaskbåge, ska vara. Är varv 9: ... stolpgrupp, 3 luftmaskor, stolpgrupp, 5 luftmaskor? Hur ser i så fall varv 10 ut? Om jag följer varven i diagrammet uppifrån (för att förstå dem) ser 3-luftmaskbågen ovanför 14-luftmaskbågen (mellan de två nedersta stolpgrupperna) inte ut att tillhöra något varv alls.

Cilla 20.06.2018 - 16:40:

DROPS Design 27.06.2018 kl. 08:50:

Hei Cilla. Vi har nå sett over dette diagrammet, og du har rett i at noe ikke stemmer. Det var en rad for mye ytterst i A.1b, denne er nå blitt fjernet. På 9 omgang over de 14 lm hekler du slik: stavgruppe (3 staver, 4 lm, 3 staver), 3 lm, stavgruppe (3 staver, 4 lm, 3 staver). Altså den omvendte V-en (3 lm) tilhører omgang 9. Den første omgangen med 6 lm, 1 fm om luftmaskebuen, 6 lm er omgang 10. Når A.1 er ferdig heklet og du hekler A.2, vær obs på at A.2c hekles totalt 6 ganger (ikke 7) som et resultat av korrigeringen i diagrammet til A.1. Oppskriftsteksten er oppdatert med denne informasjonen. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse.

Evelyn 18.06.2018 - 08:38:

Guten Tag, es heißt beim Beenden des Rumpfteils: "A.3 in Runden weiterhäkeln (d.h. die 9 Runde in der Höhe wiederholen), ....daran angepasst, dass nach einer Runde mit Stäbchengruppen geendet wird. " Ist die letze Runde nun eine Stäbchenbruppenrunde oder folgt noch eine mit Luftmaschenbögen....bei A4 ist die die Vorrunde nämlich mit Luftmaschenbögen dargestellt. Vielen Dank im Voraus!
