INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

CROCHET INFO:
Begin every treble crochet row with 3 chain stitches (replaces first treble crochet).
Begin every double crochet row with 1 chain stitch (does not replace first double crochet).
When sleeves are worked back and forth and worked together at the end/beginning of row, begin every row with treble crochets with 3 chain stitches (replaces first treble 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 treble 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 double 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.

COLOUR PATTERN: 
When switching colour at the beginning of a row, work slip stitch at the end of previous row with the new colour.
When changing colour on row work as follows: Work last treble crochet with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then work next stitch. When working with two colours place strand for the colour not worked over stitches from previous row, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows. When there are no more treble crochets left on row to be worked in same colour, the colour 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 with powder pink. Work 1 double crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook (= 1 double crochet) - read CROCHET INFO, 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-0-4-3-1-0 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* = 105-109-113-118-122-127 double crochets.
Work first row from wrong side as follows: Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet and increase
7-15-23-22-30-29 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 112-124-136-140-152-156 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Work next row as follows from right side - read COLOUR 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.
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 treble 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 treble 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 treble crochets (i.e. increase 0-0-1-0-1-0 treble crochets and decrease 0-1-0-1-0-1 treble crochets): Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 5 treble crochets, A.7 over 33-36-42-48-51-57 treble crochets (= 11-12-14-16-17-19 repetitions of 3 stitches), A.8 over 3 treble crochets, A.7 over 36-39-42-48-51-57 treble crochets (= 12-13-14-16-17-19 repetitions), A.8 over 3 treble crochets, A.7 over 72-78-81-93-102-114 treble crochets (= 24-26-27-31-34-38 repetitions), A.8 over 3 treble crochets, A.7 over 36-39-42-48-51-57 treble crochets (= 12-13-14-16-17-19 repetitions), A.8 over 3 treble crochets, A.7 over 33-36-42-48-51-57 treble crochets (= 11-12-14-16-17-19 repetitions) and finish with 1 treble crochet in each of the last 5 treble 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 treble crochets on last row.
Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 5 treble crochets, work A.7 until 5 treble crochets remain (= 82-88-95-107-114-126 repetitions), finish with 1 treble crochet in each of the last 5 treble crochets. Continue pattern like this until piece measures 19-21-22-24-26-28 cm from neck edge, adjust so that next row is a row with only treble crochets.
Now divide body and sleeves as follows: Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 5 treble crochets, A.7 as before over the next 33-36-39-45-51-57 treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 treble crochets (= front piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 treble crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 treble crochet in 1-0-1-1-1-0 treble crochet, work A.7 as before over the next 69-75-78-90-99-114 treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 0-1-2-2-0-0 treble crochets (= back piece), skip the next 53-57-62-68-70-75 treble crochets (= sleeve), work 8 chain stitches under sleeve, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 2-1-1-1-0-0 treble crochets, A.7 as before over the next 33-36-39-45-51-57 treble crochets, and finish with 1 treble crochet in each of the last 5 treble crochets (= front piece).

BODY:
= 166-176-187-211-228-254 stitches. Continue with 1 treble crochet in each of the first 5 and last 5 treble 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 treble crochets evenly (A.7 is then repeated 52-56-59-67-73-82 times in width) = 166-178-187-211-229-256 treble crochets. When piece measures 3 cm from where body and sleeves where divided, decrease 3 treble crochets on next row (adjust to decrease on a row with only treble 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 from where body and sleeves where divided, increase 3 treble crochets evenly (adjust to increase on a row with only treble 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 from where body and sleeves were divided (49-51-53-55-57-59 cm from neck edge), finish after 1 row with treble 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 treble crochet), 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in next 1-0-1-1-0-0 treble crochet, A.7 over the next 51-57-60-66-69-75 treble crochets (= 17-19-20-22-23-25 times in width), 1 treble crochets in next 1-0-1-1-1-0 treble crochet and finish with 1 treble 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 treble crochets decrease 4-5-4-4-3-5 treble 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 from where piece was divided from body, decrease 3 treble crochets evenly on row (adjust to decrease on a row with only treble 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 from where sleeve was divided from body. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Work back and forth over chain stitch row in neck as follows:
ROW 1 (= from right side with off white): Begin over band, fasten yarn to piece with 1 slip stitch in 1st band stitch, work 2 chain stitches (= 1 half treble crochet), work 1 half treble crochet in every double crochet the entire row = 105-109-113-118-122-127 half treble crochets.
ROW 2 (= from wrong side with powder pink): Work 1 double crochet in every half treble crochet = 105-109-113-118-122-127 double crochets. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:

Bronwyn 01.02.2019 - 03:32:

Hi I have no idea how to read these patterns with the A1, A2 bit I don’t get. Do you have any patterns that are just written with out all the charts please I love your patterns but have not yet been able to make one

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 08:39:

Dear Mrs Bronwyn, start readingn diagram on the bottom corner on the right side on first row from RS, towards the left on every WS row, and from the left towards the right from WS. Each symbol represent 1 stitch/group of stitch (see diagram key). Should you need any further assistance reading diagram, please contact the store where you bought the yarn. Happy crocheting!

Carine 13.07.2018 - 07:27:

Merci beaucoup pour votre message. J\'ai suivi vos conseils. Je passe donc ensuite aux explications DOS & DEVANTS et me retrouve donc à devoir ajouter deux brides (taille M) au 2e rang de A7.... Est-ce normal et si oui comment faire ? Merci encore.

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 kl. 08:45:

Bonjour Carine, je crochèterais le 2ème rang de A.7 comme dans le diagramme et augmenterais une bride sous chaque manche (= 2 augmentations au total) pour avoir le bon nombre de motifs dès le rang suivant. Bon crochet!

Carine 11.07.2018 - 21:44:

Bonjour, au démarrage de la division dos-devants / manches, faut il faire un motif entier de A7 (\"comme avant\') ou seulement le premier rang de brides avant de passer aux explications\"DOS & DEVANTS\" où il y a des augmentations ? Merci beaucoup pour votre aide !

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:40:

Bonjour Carine, le dernier rang de A.7 avant la division du dos/des devants et des manches doit être un rang de brides (= le 1er, le 3ème ou le 4ème rang de A.7), au rang suivant, continuez A.7 sur les mailles des devants, du dos + dans les mailles en l'air montées sous les manches en augmentant en même temps 0-1-2 brides en fonction de la taille (= au 1er rang du dos/des devants). Bon crochet!

Carine Prunet 07.07.2018 - 07:59:

Dans les A7 et A8, les groupes de trois brides du troisième rang se font ils autour de la maille chaînette centrale du rang précèdent ou bien est-ce \"une bride dans b du rg précédent, b autour de la maille du rg précédent, b dans b du rg précédent\" ? Merci d\'avance et merci pour la réponse à ma première question qui m\'a permis de poursuivre avec bonheur !

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 09:26:

Bonjour Mme Brunet, ces brides sont le 8ème symbole = elles se crochètent autour de la maille en l'air du rang précédent = vous aurez ainsi 3 brides en naturel autour de la maille en l'air du rang 2. Bon crochet!

Lucia 06.07.2018 - 21:55:

Ben ik weer. Ik vond het patroon lastig om te lezen. In A3 ben ik nu bij rij 4, de vasten met naturel. Die moeten om de losse van de vorige toer begrijp ik. 2 in elk boogje. Maar bij de meerdering kom ik er niet uit. Moet ik dan daar 7 vasten in totaal achter elkaar? Zowel in de stokjes als om de losse en dat bij de 2 meerderingen uit rij 1?

DROPS Design 10.07.2018 kl. 16:34:

Dag Lucia, Inderdaad, je haakt de vasten om de lossenlus en in de stokjes. Welke meerderingen bedoel je? Als ik goed lees zijn er geen extra meerderingen in de beschrijving. Als je het telpatroon in de hoogte hebt gehaakt, heb je wel meer steken, deze meerderingen zijn a.h.w. al in de telpatronen verwerkt

Lucia 04.07.2018 - 15:44:

Ben net begonnen. Haakt heerlijk. Alleen er staat geen kleurschema in het patroon. Op de foto kan je het wel een beetje zien, maar in de beschrijving staat: volg kleurpatroon maar dat vind ik niet. Alleen hoe je van keur verandert. Kan u me dat vertellen?

DROPS Design 05.07.2018 kl. 15:14:

Dag Lucia, Bij de uitleg van de symbolen in het telpatroon staat ook aangegeven in welke kleur je deze steken haakt (losse met poederroze, vaste in de steek met poederroze, etc)

Carine 22.06.2018 - 08:37:

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!
