Replace first single crochet at beginning of row with 1 chain stitch.
Replace first double treble crochet at beginning of row with 5 chain stitches.

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 7 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 15 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.

What is the different between those two symbols?? /symbols/069.gif= round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round\r\n = round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round, then work slip stitches until first chain space\r\n\r\ni can\'t understand it clearly .. and thank you for your effort

Dear Mrs Osama, in the first one you start with 3 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round, for the 2nd one you will start the same way but at the end of round, after joining with a sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round you will now work sl st until first ch-space so that next round starts in the first ch-space on previous round. Happy crocheting!

Nourhan Osama 25.04.2018 - 22:09:

What is thw diffrenet between these two symbol i don't understand it clearly can u help me please ,, and thank you for your effort

Patsy Gadberry 18.04.2018 - 17:03:

You have double treble as the last stitch in the point of the pineapple in both the US and British patterns. I noticed my stitch looked longer than your photo. I assume this should have been just a treble or triple crochet for the US version.

Patsy Gadberry 17.04.2018 - 18:03:

I know how to crochet all the stitches, but have extreme difficulty with your pattern charts. Do you have any instruction online as to how your crochet pattern charts are read? I am trying to get started with the Butterfly Queen. I made Isla Bonita, but used instructions and photos from Nathalie on the forum.

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 09:12:

Dear Mrs Gadberry, each symbol = one stitch/group of st. In A.1, start on black dot on ring of chain then work A.1a (= how to begin/end each round) and repeat A.1b a total of 4 times in width. Follow each round in diagram round after round reading diagram always from the right towards the left (as for Isla Bonita). Happy crocheting!

Gyda 16.04.2018 - 06:13:

Where can I find a list of definitions for all the different stitches? What is double crochets, for example?

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 08:26:

Dear Gyda, you can find the explanation of all the stitches in the tips and helps section of our site. Also you can find a demo / tutorial of these stitches in the video section heret. Happy Crocheting!

Linda 13.04.2018 - 00:37:

Re butterfly queen pattern...I don't see any measurements to help in selecting what size I need. Can you help. Thanks Linda

DROPS Design 13.04.2018 kl. 08:17:

Dear Linda, you will find measurement chart at the very bottom of the pattern, below diagrams. Happy crocheting!

~RG 07.04.2018 - 20:02:

I've tried to add this & another two patterns to my favorites. It keeps giving me error message "backend connection failed". Could you please help me with this. Thanks.

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 10:12:

Dear RG, we had an issue that night but it is now working, you can try again! Happy crocheting!

Nekane 02.04.2018 - 01:16:

Este gráfico es un auténtico infierno. Sería genial que utilizárais los símbolos más utilizados universalmente. Hay que estar siempre mirando la leyenda porque se representan las cosas de una manera diferente. No está claro el principio y final de cada vuelta, y tampoco está el texto escrito. A falta de un gráfico mejor, sería de ayuda tener un vídeo explicativo. Gracias.

Sandi 25.03.2018 - 16:18:

Is there a PDF pattern I can print? The diagram patterns are confusing to me. I just can’t get used to them. Thank you.

DROPS Design 25.03.2018 kl. 23:08:

Dear Sandi, there is a pattern for printing in PDF format, if you click the print icon right above the pattern instructions, and then click to the text on the upper right side ("Continue to print the pattern"). However, it will have the same text and charts what is on the web page. If you get stuck with the chart, you can alsways ask for help in person in teh store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Crafting!

Warum werden hier nicht die herkömmlichen Häkelschriften verwendet? Bei diesen ungewöhnlichen Zeichen kann man sich ganz schwer konzentrieren bei der Häkelarbeit.

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 10:47:

Liebe Frau Betka, die Zeichenerklärung finden Sie immer in jeder Anleitung, diese Beschreibung passt die Häkelschrifte. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!
