INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

CROCHET INFO (applies A.4):
Replace first double crochet at beginning of row with 1 chain stitch.
Replace first triple treble crochet at beginning of row with 5 chain stitches.

DECREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Work 5 chain stitches, skip 1 double crochet + 1 chain space, work 1 double crochet around next chain space + 1 chain space (= 1 repetition decreased), continue pattern as before until 1 chain space remains + 1 double crochet on previous row, skip these stitches and finish with 1 double 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 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 TENSION! 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. There are now 4 corner chain spaces (1 treble crochet + 6 chain stitches + 1 treble 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 x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm 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/double 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/double 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 x 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm (i.e. approx. 16 cm 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 from marker, then work row with treble groups 1 time in all sizes. Piece now measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm 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 (adjust to work next row with chain stitches/double crochets) decrease 1 repetition in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 8-8-8-6-6-6 cm 3-3-3-4-4-4 times in total = 12-13-14-15-16-17 chain spaces of 6 stitches after last decrease. Continue until piece measures approx. 28 cm 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.

Ik ben een ervaren haakster maar hier kom ik al niet eens uit het begin. Zie ik het goed dat ik de eerste toer begin met 3 lossen, dan 5 lossen en dan samengehaakte, dan herhalen vanaf 5 lossen. Wat ik dan 4 keer herhaal?

Tuija Matikainen 13.05.2019 - 10:13:

Hei, en ymmärrä kohtaa: kädentiet seuraavasti: Virkkaa mallivirkkausta piirroksen A.3 mukaisesti kuten aiemmin, kunnes olet ensimmäisen kulman kohdalla, virkkaa kulman ketjusilmukkakaareen kuten aiemmin. Virkkaa nyt ketjusilmukoita seuraavan sivun keskelle asti (eli ensimmäisen ja toisen kulman keskelle) näin: Virkkaa 1 ketjusilmukka jokaisen väliin jätetyn ketjusilmukan/kiinteä silmukan yläpuolelle. Kiitos etukäteen

Ok, I think I just figured it out my boo boo, regarding the arms. I'm supposed to do A3. that is the ch 6, 1 sc around the ch sts I made for the arms so that there is an actual arm hole. I need to do 7 repeats into the ch. Which, at this moment I don't have. I have 49 chs hanging out on the back of my sweater. Silly me. I was baffled by the arms. So, I'll have to frog a few rows. Thank you for this fun, challenging sweater. I'm having a wonderful time. Its also quite beautiful.

Annmarie Lindley 19.04.2019 - 15:17:

After you do the chain spaces for the arms and continue with section A3 are the ch spaces supposed to be above (on the right side) or below (on the wrong side) of the pattern? In other words, do you work over the arm chains or under them? Should the arm chains lay on top of the stitches or be on the underside? I hope I'm explaining myself well enough.

Cheryl Wieger 16.04.2019 - 03:48:

Could you please tell me in the pattern (after doing the chain stitches for armholes) it states working A3 again in all stitches. Do I work these same stitches I skipped for the armholes? Or do I work these stitches along the chain for the sleeve. Iam confused. Love this pattern by the way. Thank you.

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 10:25:

Dear Mrs Wieger, on the round after skipping sts for the armhole you replaced with chain stitches, continue working in the chains for the armholes = there should be 2 holes for the sleeves. Happy crocheting!

Jacket: after 3rd paragraph ending with...to A.3b/c/d. It says AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx................ How do you get the different sizes? The square would turn out the same size??

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 10:27:

Dear Mrs Hayden, you continue w orkinjg with A.3b/c/d until piece measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm x 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm, ie depending on your size you will stop when piece measures eg 36 x 36 cm in first size, 38 x 38 cm in 2nd size and so on. Happy crocheting!

Pour le 3 ème tour il y a bien 5 mailles en l air entre chaque groupes de 11 brides ?

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 14:07:

Bonjour Laurent, tout à fait! Bon crochet!

Laurent 08.02.2019 - 10:57:

Bonjour pour le 2 éme tour de A1b , je fait bien 4 brides dans les arceaux de 5 mailles en l air du rang précédant et 2 brides , 14 mailles en l air et 2 brides dans les arceaux de 4 mailles en l air du rang précédant

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 12:02:

Bonjour Laurent, tout à fait, mais au début du tour, vous commencez par 3 ml (vous avez crocheté des mailles coulées jusqu'au milieu de cet arceau à la fin du tour précédent), 2 brides dans le 1er arceau (= celui de 5 ml), et vous terminez le tour par 2 brides dans le même arceau que les 3 ml et 2 brides du début du tour. Bon crochet!

Bonita Colley 12.11.2018 - 01:25:

Is there a youtube that shows how to make this? I am advanced and can't make heads or tails out of this!

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 01:49:

Dear Bonita, you can find the videos, related to this pattern at the left of the page, below the pictures. Also there are detailed explanation of the symbos of the pattern chart. If you need further help you can also ask for it in person in the store where you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Crafting!

Kat Arnett 08.10.2018 - 18:09:

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