INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.8.

CROCHET INFO:
Begin every double crochet row with 3 chain stitches (replaces first double crochet).
Begin every single crochet row with 1 chain stitch (does not replace first single crochet).
When sleeves are worked back and forth and worked together at the end/beginning of row, begin every row with double crochets with 3 chain stitches (replaces first double crochet) and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of row, turn piece.
On 2nd row in A.7 begin and end row as follows: Work 1 slip stitch in each of the first 2 stitches on previous row, 3 chain stitches (replace first double crochet), finish row with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of row. Work both from right and wrong side.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches (e.g. 105 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches = 95 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 13.5. I.e. in this example increase by working 2 single crochets in same stitch alternately every 13th. and 14th stitch.
To decrease evenly in this example work alternately every 12th and 13th and every 13th and 14th 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 changing color on row 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 work next stitch. 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. When there are no more double crochets left on row to be worked in same color, the color does not need to follow onwards in piece, if it is to be used on next row, pick it up on next row, but make sure that the yarn comes on wrong side of piece.
Make sure to avoid tights yarn and not to tighten yarn when picking it up from previous row.
----------------------------------------------------------

JACKET:
Yoke and body are worked back and forth from mid front, top down. Work sleeves back and forth and work together at the end of every row.

YOKE:
Work 123-128-132-138-143-149 chain stitches (including 5 band stitches in each side of piece and 1 chain stitch to turn with) on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with powder pink. Work 1 single crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook (= 1 single crochet) - read CROCHET INFO, 1 single crochet in each of the next 2-0-4-3-1-0 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* = 105-109-113-118-122-127 single crochets.
Work first row from wrong side as follows: Work 1 single crochet in every single crochet and increase
7-15-23-22-30-29 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 112-124-136-140-152-156 single crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Work next row as follows from right side - read COLOR PATTERN:
Work A.1 over the first 6 stitches, A.2 over 16-20-24-24-24-24 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-6 repetitions of 4 stitches) (= left front piece), work A.3 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions of 1 stitch), A.2 over 12 stitches (= 3 repetitions), A.3 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions) (= left sleeve), A.2 over 36-40-44-44-56-56 stitches (= 9-10-11-11-14-14 repetitions) (= back piece), A.3 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions), A.2 over 12 stitches (= 3 repetitions), A.3 over 2-2-2-3-3-4 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-4 repetitions) (= right sleeve), A.2 over 16-20-24-24-24-24 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-6 repetitions) and finish with A.1 over the last 6 stitches (= right front piece).
When A.1 to A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 152-164-176-200-212-236 stitches on last row. Piece measures approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8''.
Work next row as follows from right side:
Work A.4 over the first 7 stitches, work A.5 until 12 stitches remain (= 11-12-13-15-16-18 repetitions of 12 stitches) AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 double crochet, work A.6 over the next 5 stitches and finish with A.4 over the last 7 stitches.
When A.4 to A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 232-251-270-308-327-365 stitches on last row (2 double crochets worked together = 1 stitch). Piece measures approx. 16 cm. Now finish piece with off white as follows:
Work as follows from wrong side AT THE SAME TIME adjust number of stitches to 232-250-271-307-328-364 double crochets (i.e. increase 0-0-1-0-1-0 double crochets and decrease 0-1-0-1-0-1 double crochets): Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 5 double crochets, A.7 over 33-36-42-48-51-57 double crochets (= 11-12-14-16-17-19 repetitions of 3 stitches), A.8 over 3 double crochets, A.7 over 36-39-42-48-51-57 double crochets (= 12-13-14-16-17-19 repetitions), A.8 over 3 double crochets, A.7 over 72-78-81-93-102-114 double crochets (= 24-26-27-31-34-38 repetitions), A.8 over 3 double crochets, A.7 over 36-39-42-48-51-57 double crochets (= 12-13-14-16-17-19 repetitions), A.8 over 3 double crochets, A.7 over 33-36-42-48-51-57 double crochets (= 11-12-14-16-17-19 repetitions) and finish with 1 double crochet in each of the last 5 double crochets.
Continue pattern like this. When A.7 to A.8 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 256-274-295-331-352-388 double crochets on last row.
Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 5 double crochets, work A.7 until 5 double crochets remain (= 82-88-95-107-114-126 repetitions), finish with 1 double crochet in each of the last 5 double crochets. Continue pattern like this until piece measures 19-21-22-24-26-28 cm / 7 3/8"-8 ¼"-8 5/8"-9 3/8"-10 ¼"-11" from neck edge, adjust so that next row is a row with only double crochets.
Now divide body and sleeves as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 5 double crochets, A.7 as before over the next 33-36-39-45-51-57 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 double crochets (= front piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 double crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 double crochet in 1-0-1-1-1-0 double crochet, work A.7 as before over the next 69-75-78-90-99-114 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 0-1-2-2-0-0 double crochets (= back piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 double crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 double crochets, A.7 as before over the next 33-36-39-45-51-57 double crochets, and finish with 1 double crochet in each of the last 5 double crochets (= front piece).

BODY:
= 166-176-187-211-228-254 stitches. Continue with 1 double crochet in each of the first 5 and last 5 double crochets and work pattern A.7 over the remaining stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you on first row increase 0-2-0-0-1-2 double crochets evenly (A.7 is then repeated 52-56-59-67-73-82 times in width) = 166-178-187-211-229-256 double crochets. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'' from where body and sleeves where divided, decrease 3 double crochets on next row (adjust to decrease on a row with only double crochets). Decrease like this every 2½-2½-4-3-4-2½ cm 5-5-3-4-3-5 times in total = 151-163-178-199-220-241 stitches. For every decrease work 1 repetition less of A.7 in width.
When piece measures 14 cm / 5½'' from where body and sleeves where divided, increase 3 double crochets evenly (adjust to increase on a row with only double crochets).
Increase like this every cm 13-13-14-14-14-14 times in total = 190-202-220-241-262-283 stitches. For every increase work 1 repetition more of A.7 in width.
Continue until piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm / 11 ¾"-11 ¾"-12 1/8"-12 1/8"-12 1/8"-12 1/8" from where body and sleeves were divided (49-51-53-55-57-59 cm / 19¼''-20''-21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼'' from neck edge), finish after 1 row with double crochets. Fasten off.

SLEEVE:
Work piece back and forth (i.e. alternately from right and wrong side) and work together with 1 slip stitch on every row.
Begin working in the 5th chain stitch of the 8 chain stitches worked in armhole on body with off white as follows: Work 1 slip stitch, 3 chain stitches (= 1 double crochet), 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in next 1-0-1-1-0-0 double crochet, A.7 over the next 51-57-60-66-69-75 double crochets (= 17-19-20-22-23-25 times in width), 1 double crochets in next 1-0-1-1-1-0 double crochet and finish with 1 double crochet in each of the last 4 chain stitches = 61-65-70-76-78-83 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of row.
On next row with double crochets decrease 4-5-4-4-3-5 double crochets evenly = 57-60-66-72-75-78 stitches. Now repeat A.7 19-20-22-24-25-26 times in the round on row.
When sleeve measures 4 cm / 1½'' from where piece was divided from body, decrease 3 double crochets evenly on row (adjust to decrease on a row with only double crochets). Decrease like this every 4-4-3-2-2-1½ cm 3-3-4-4-4-4 times in total = 48-51-54-60-63-66 stitches. Every time you decrease, repeat A.7 1 time less in width.
Continue until piece measures 16-14-14-13-11-9 cm / 6 ¼"-5 ½"-5 ½"-5 1/8"-4 ¼"-3 ½" from where sleeve was divided from body. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Bonjour, Comment s'organise le deuxième rang des successions de motifs A1, A2 et A3 ? Le nombre de mailles au dessus desquelles ils se font ne peut être le même qu'au premier rang ("A.1 au-dessus des 6 premières mailles, A.2 au-dessus des 16-20-24-24-24-24 mailles ...") puisqu'il y a des augmentations avec A3... J'adore ce modèle mais je suis bloquée à ce stade ! Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 22.06.2018 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Carine, au 2ème rang, suivez l'ordre des diagrammes en sens inverse (= on crochète maintenant sur l'envers) en commençant par le devant droit cette fois. Lisez les diagrammes de gauche à droite sur l'envers et en suivant le 2ème rang de chaque diagramme, = 2 ms pour chaque A.3 et 4 ms pour chaque A.2. Bon crochet!

Tina 07.06.2018 - 17:13:

Fertig! Ich habe Muskat in knallrot verwendet und für die Blumen weiß und in der Mitte gelb. Eine sehr aparte hübsche Sommerjacke, die zu vielem passt und bestimmt lange ein Teil meiner Garderobe ist. Vielen Dank mal wieder!!!

Heidi 07.06.2018 - 16:14:

Hallo Drops-Team. Ich habe mit Hilfe des Videos gerade gelernt, wie man in einer Reihe mit 2 Farben den Faden mitführt. Jetzt sehe ich, dass es auch Reihen gibt, wo in einer Reihe 3 Farben vorkommen (bei dem Blumenmuster A5). Werden dann die Fäden rosa und senf beide mit eingehäkelt? Vielen Dank im Voraus.

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 08:13:

Liebe Heidi, ja genau, die 3 Farben häkeln, wie unter FARBMUSTER erklärt wird. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Rose 01.06.2018 - 01:53:

This pattern is beautiful but I can’t understand how to read the chest size for the small, medium, and large. How many inches is the small, medium, and large?

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 08:57:

Dear Rose, you will find all measurements for each size in the measurement chart, they are in cm, taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similiar garment you have and like the shape to find out the right size. Read more about sizing here. Happy crocheting!

Beatrice 26.05.2018 - 13:33:

Bonjour Je comprend pas le debut . Chaînette en rose je fait tout jusqu’au 1 rang toujours en rose Mes je vois que sur le modèle différente couleur après la chaînette ?

DROPS Design 28.05.2018 kl. 09:11:

Bonjour Béatrice, quand le gilet est terminé, on fait une petite bordure d'encolure (= 1 rang en naturel et 1 rang en rose), au début du gilet, crochetez la chaînette en rose, puis le 1er rang de ms (en sautant des ml) en rose, et encore 1 rang de ms en rose (= sur l'envers) et continuez ensuite en suivant les diagrammes. Bon crochet!

Margaret Marks 23.05.2018 - 12:14:

Just beautiful. Thank you so much 🤗

Marit Strindlund 31.01.2018 - 12:08:

Jättefin! när släpper ni beskrivningen?

Anna-Karin Anhage 27.01.2018 - 14:14:

Å,den vill jag gärna virka,superfin!

Ann Mari 14.01.2018 - 08:59:

Romantisk och en modell som sitter fint på kroppen. Väcker lust att sätta igång genast med den söta koftan.

Nicole RIVIERE 12.01.2018 - 22:18:

Ce serait bien de prévoir une jupe assortie et pourquoi pas un top à bretelles fines.
