INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.7.

CROCHET INFO:
Piece is worked back and forth but worked together on every row, i.e. work from right side and wrong side but work every row together with 1 slip stitch.
Begin every double crochet row with 3 chain stitches (replaces first double crochet). Finish row with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of row.
Begin every single crochet row with 1 chain stitch (does not replace first single crochet). Finish row with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch at beginning of row.
On 1st row in A.1 begin and end row as follows: Work 3 chain stitches (does not replace first double crochet), finish row with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch.
On 1st row in A.2, A.6 and A.7 begin and end row as follows: Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first e2 stitches, 3 chain stitches (replaces first double crochet), finish row with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch.
Begin every half double crochet row with 2 chain stitches (replace first half double crochet). Finish row with 1 slip stitch in 2nd chain stitch at beginning of row.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 20) = 4.8. In this example increase in approx. alternately every 4th and 5th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by working 2 stitches in same stitch.
To decrease evenly work alternately every 3rd and 4th stitch together and every 4th and 5th stitch together.

COLOR PATTERN:
When switching color at the beginning of a row, work slip stitch at the end of previous row with the new color.
When working with several color on a row, work as follows:
When changing color work as follows: Work last double crochet/single crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next double crochet/single crochet.
When working with two colors place strand for the color not worked over stitches from previous row, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows. Make sure to avoid tights yarn and not to tighten yarn when picking it up from previous row.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
Worked back and forth but work together on every row, top down.

YOKE:
Work 108-113-117-127-131-136 chain stitches on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with denim blue and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Work 1 chain stitch - read CROCHET INFO, 1 single crochet in each of the first 2-0-4-0-4-2 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* = 92-96-100-108-112-116 single crochets. On next row work from right side: Work 1 single crochet in each single crochet and increase 0-20-16-16-12-24 stitches evenly – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 92-116-116-124-124-140 single crochets.

When all increases are done, repeat A.6 61-65-69-75-83-91 times in total in width.

Work A.6 over all stitches (= 20-21-24-26-27-28 times in width).
When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from where sleeve was divided from body, decrease 3 double crochets evenly! Decrease like this every 4-4-2½-2-1½-1½ cm / 1½"-1½"-7/8"-3/4"-½"-½'' 6-6-9-10-11-11 times in total = 42-45-45-48-48-51 stitches. Repeat A.6 14-15-15-16-16-17 times in total in width. Continue pattern until piece measures 27-26-25-23-22-20 cm / 10½"-10 1/4"-9 3/4"-9"-8 3/4"-8'' from where it was divided from body. Work A.7 over all stitches (= 14-15-15-16-16-17 times in width). Fasten off when A.7 has been worked 1 time vertically. Sleeve measures approx. 31-30-29-27-26-24 cm / 12 1/4"-11 3/4"-11½"-10½"-10 1/4"-9½'' from where sleeve was divided from body.

Hei. Jeg lurer på grunnen til at arbeidet skal hekles om hverandre på retten og vrangen?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 10:40:

Hei Tuva. Maskene ser forskjellige ut fra rettsiden og vrangsiden, så for at mønsteret skal bli riktig må arbeidet hekles fra retten og vrangen annenhver omgang. God fornøyelse.

Pilar 16.09.2018 - 23:49:

Quiero realizar el jersey pero en la explicación del comienzo del canesú, no comprendo cómo realizando 136 cadenetas obtengo 116 puntos. (talla xxxl) Qué es exactamente lo que no comprendo? No se realiza un punto bajo en cada cadeneta?. Gracias Pilar

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 20:34:

Hola Pilar, se trataba de un error a la hora de colgar el patrón faltaba una fila. Ya está corregido.

Fre 05.09.2018 - 15:38:

Wat PRACHTIG MOOI! STUNNING!.

Anuma 31.08.2018 - 05:11:

Buenas! Estoy un poco confundida con los aumentos, en la primer fila que se trabaja el patron A.1 y A.2 dice que deben quedar 124 puntos. Y luego hacer 28 aumentos en la siguiente fila de puntos bajos (para mi talla, xl), lo que me daria un total de 152 puntos, y no los 168 que dicta el patron. Lo pense varias veces pero no encuentro como llegar a la cantidad de puntos con el numero de aumentos que dice el patron, agradeceria su ayuda!

DROPS Design 31.08.2018 kl. 20:55:

Hola Anuma. Trabajando A.1 una vez en vertical aumentamos 4 puntos por cada A.1 (ver el diagrama), es decir como repetimos A.1 4 veces en la vuelta se ha aumentado un total de 16 puntos. Más 28 puntos repartidos = un total de 44 puntos. 124+44= 168 puntos

Weidele Gabriele 26.08.2018 - 15:25:

Dies als Haeckelschrift aufzeichnen? Danke.

Is het mogelijk om dit patroon ook te breien? Of, is het mogelijk om dat Drops hier een breipatroon van maakt? Vele groetjes

Nova 05.06.2018 - 03:54:

It says under the heading Crochet Info that on the 1st row in A2, A6 and A7 to begin and end row as follows: Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first e2 stitches. What are the e2 stitches?

DROPS Design 05.06.2018 kl. 08:54:

Hi Nova! It is a mistake. It should be: 'Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first 2 stitches'. Happy crocheting!

Nova 01.06.2018 - 05:24:

Hi, was wondering in the Crochet info what the e2 stitches mean? And what does the star symbol mean in the graphs? Thank you

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 09:02:

Dear Nora, not sure about what you mean with the "e2 stitches", can you clarify? The black star in diagrams (= bottom row) shows the sts on previous row to show how to work the sts for next row (= row 1) in diagram. Happy crocheting!

Margo Molenaar 31.05.2018 - 20:46:

Ik loop vast bij de eerste toer. Achterpand: Haak A2 (= 4 steken) enz. Dit begint met 2 halve vasten in de 2 eerste vasten, 3 lossen (1e stokje) tweede stokje in de zelfde vaste. Moet er een losse tussen? En daarna 1 en 2 vasten overslaan en opnieuw 2 stokjes in 1 vaste enz.

DROPS Design 03.06.2018 kl. 20:16:

Hoi Margot, In de eerste toer van A.2 haak je steeds een losse tussen de 2 stokjes, maar bij het volgende stokje haak je geen losse ertussen en inderdaad in totaal 3 lossen overslaan.
