----------------------------------------------------------

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At beginning of every round with treble crochets replace first treble crochet with 4 chain stitches. Finish round with 1 slip stitch in 4th chain stitch at beginning of round.

START THE PIECE HERE:

----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work in the round top down. First work a yoke. Then divide the piece into body and sleeves and continue in the round separately.

YOKE:
Work 102-102-111-116-116-125 chain stitches on hook size 4.5 mm = US 7 with Puna and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Work 1 chain stitch (= first single crochet) - read CROCHET INFO, skip first chain stitch, work 1 single crochet in each of the next 3-3-5-3-3-5 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* and finish with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch on round = 88-88-96-100-100-108 single crochets.
Then work pattern as follows:
Round begins in transition between back piece and sleeve (i.e. first work over sleeve, front piece, sleeve and finally back piece).
Right sleeve: Work A.1 over first stitch, A.2 over 1 stitch, A.3 over 1 stitch.
Front piece: Work A.4 over the next 2-2-4-2-2-4 stitches, A.5 over 17-17-17-18-18-18 stitches, A.6 over 1-1-1-3-3-3 stitches, A.7 over 1 stitch (= mid front), A.8 over 1-1-1-3-3-3 stitches, A.9 over 17-17-17-18-18-18 stitches, A.4 over the next 2-2-4-2-2-4 stitches.
Left sleeve: Work as right sleeve.
Back piece: Work as front piece.
Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Repeat A.4, A.5 and A.9 vertically. Work A.2 until arrow for your size, then work A.4 over these stitches.
When A.1, A.3, A.6, A.7 and A.8 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 55-55-59-63-63-67 single crochets and 4 fans on each front piece/back piece and 29-31-39-37-33-31 single crochets on each sleeve = 168-172-196-200-192-196 single crochets + 8 fan pattern in total.
Piece measures approx. 14 cm = 5 1/2” measured along shoulder.
Then work as follows:
Right sleeve: Work A.1 over first stitch, A.4 over the next 27-29-37-35-31-29 stitches, A.3 over 1 stitch.
Front piece: Work A.4 over the next 2-2-4-2-2-4 stitches, A.5 2 times in total in width, A.6 over the next 1-1-1-3-3-3 stitches, A.7 (= 1 stitch = mid front), A.8 over the next 1-1-1-3-3-3 stitches, A.9 2 times in total in width, A.4 over the next 2-2-4-2-2-4 stitches.
Left sleeve: Work as right sleeve.
Back piece: Work as front piece.
Continue pattern like this until piece measures 22-24-25-27-29-31 cm 8 3/4”-9 1/2”-9 3/4”-10 5/8”-11 3/8”-12 1/4” in total, measured along the shoulder (i.e. approx. 7-9-10-12-14-15 rounds after first repetition of pattern A.1, A.3 and A.6 to A.8).
There are now approx. 65-71-77-89-93-97 single crochets/treble crochets and approx. 6-6-6-6-6-8 fans on each front piece/back piece and approx. 45-51-59-61-61-63 single crochets/treble crochets on each sleeve = approx. 220-244-272-300-308-320 single crochets/treble crochets + approx. 12-12-12-12-12-16 fan pattern in total.
Now divide the piece for sleeves and body as follows:
Right sleeve: Skip sleeve stitches (= approx. 45-51-59-61-61-63 stitches) and work 6-6-6-8-10-12 chain stitches under sleeve.
Front piece: Work pattern as before.
Left sleeve: Skip sleeve stitches (= approx. 45-51-59-61-61-63 stitches) and work 6-6-6-8-10-12 chain stitches under sleeve.
Back piece: Work as front piece.
There are now approx. 71-77-83-93-103-109 single crochets/treble crochets/chain stitches (including chain stitches under sleeve) + approx. 6-6-6-6-6-8 fans on each front piece/back piece = approx. 142-154-166-186-206-218 single crochets/treble crochets and approx. 12-12-12-12-12-16 fan pattern in total.

BODY:
Work 1 round with pattern as before and 1 single crochet/treble crochet in every chain stitch under sleeve. Displace round so that it begins mid under sleeve. Insert 1 marker mid under both sleeves.
Then work pattern as before but decrease stitches in each side as follows:
Front piece: Work A.4 over the first 2-2-4-4-5-8 stitches, A.10 over the next 5 stitches + fan pattern + 1 stitch (adjust which round to begin on according to pattern), work pattern as before (i.e. continue to increase mid front) until 8-8-10-10-11-14 stitches remain and 1 fan before marker, work A.11 over 1 stitch + fan pattern + 5 stitches, work A.4 over the next 2-2-4-4-5-8 stitches.
Back piece: Work as front piece.
Continue pattern like this.
I.e. on every round with treble crochets increase stitches on each side of A.7 (i.e. increase stitches in A.6 and A.8) and decrease stitches in A.10 and A.11 (when decreasing/increasing treble crochets increase 2 treble crochets on each side of A.7 (= 8 treble crochets increased) and decrease 1 treble crochet in every A.10/A.11 (= 4 treble crochets decreased in total), i.e. increase 4 treble crochets in total on round).
Decrease pattern in the sides and increase for new pattern mid front/mid back. When A.10 and A.11 have been worked 1 time vertically, continue decrease in treble crochets as before (i.e. now there is no decrease in the fan pattern).
When piece measures 20 cm = 8” from where body was divided from sleeve, measured along the side on the shortest, increase stitches as before, but do not increase for fans, i.e. work all stitches increased in single crochets/treble crochets.
When piece measures 25-25-26-26-26-26 cm = 9 3/4”-9 3/4”-10 1/4”-10 1/4”-10 1/4”-10 1/4” from where body was divided sleeve, measured along the shortest (i.e. approx. 11 rounds with treble crochets = 11 times increased), work 1 edge as follows:
Work * 1 single crochet, 3 chain stitches, skip approx. 1 cm = 3/8” *, work from *-* in the round, adjust to finish with 3 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first single crochet.
Make sure edge is not too tight, skip fewer stitches if needed. Fasten off. Sweater measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm = 19 3/4”-20 1/2”-21 1/4”-22”-22 3/4”-23 5/8” measured from shoulder and down on the shortest.

SLEEVE:
Fasten strand with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch under sleeve, work 1 single crochet/treble crochet in each of the 2-2-2-3-4-5 chain stitches under sleeve (adjust whether to work single crochet or treble crochet according to pattern), work 1 single crochet/treble crochet in each of the approx. 45-51-59-61-61-63 stitches skipped for sleeve and finish with 1 single crochet/treble crochet in each of the last 3-3-3-4-5-6 chain stitches under sleeve = approx. 51-57-65-69-71-75 single crochets/treble crochets.
Continue in the round according to A.4.
When sleeve measures 2 cm = 3/4”, decrease 2 stitches under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP.
Decrease like this every 5-3-2½-2½-2½-2 cm = 2”-1 1/8”-1”-1”-1”-3/4” 8-11-13-13-14-15 times in total = approx. 35-36-39-43-43-45 stitches.
Continue pattern until piece measures 43-42-41-40-38-37 cm = 17”-16 1/2”-16 1/8”-15 3/4”-15”-14 1/2”, now work 1 edge around the sleeve as follows: Work * 1 single crochet, 3 chain stitches, skip approx. 1 cm = 3/8” *, work from *-* around the entire sleeve, adjust to finish with 3 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first single crochet. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Crochet an edge around the neck as follows: Begin mid on top of shoulder, fasten strand with 1 slip stitch in 1 stitch, work * 1 single crochet in next stitch, 3 chain stitches, skip approx. 1 cm = 1 1/8” *, work from *-* in the round as follows, adjust to finish round with 3 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first single crochet. Make sure edge is not too tight at the neck, skip fewer stitches if needed. Fasten off.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= chain stitch
= treble crochet
= single crochet in stitch
= single crochet around chain stitch
= Bobble: Work 1 treble crochet in next single crochet but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), work 3 treble crochets in same single crochet the same way, pull yarn through all 5 loops on hook
= work 2 treble crochets together as follows:* Make 2 yarn overs, insert hook in next stitch, get the yarn, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn through the 2 first loops on hook, make 1 yarn over and pull through the 2 next loops on hook *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 treble crochet decreased).
= first round has already been worked, it only shows how next round should be worked in/around stitches

A4 and A5 appear to be missing......help

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 11:36:

Hello Peggy. You can find diagramms A4 and A5 at the very bottom of the diagram section. Diagram A4 is next to diagram A11, and diagram A5 is under A9 and next to A10. Happy crocheting!

Gisèle 14.02.2019 - 16:39:

Très joli modèle que je suis entrain de faire. Merci

Dina Brady 14.02.2019 - 02:48:

I am on pg 3:8. Continue pattern like this. My shoulder Seam measures 8 3/4”. I am doing the small size but I only have 4 fans on front and back? I have 45 triples on sleeves. How do I go from 4 to 6 fans?

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 11:34:

Dear Mrs Brady, when you have worked A.1/A.3 and A.4/A.7 in height, there are enough room to work one more repeat in width of A.4 over sleeves between A.1/A.3 and 1 more repeat of A.5/A.9 between A.7 and A.4/A.6 and A.8/A.4, the number of fans will then increase. Happy crocheting!

Dina Brady 13.02.2019 - 05:37:

I am on page 3/8. Where it says Right sleeve: Work A.1 over first stitch - confused because A/1chart just finished with 13 sc - not sure what I put in first stitch (the three dble triples?

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 09:29:

Dear Mrs Brady, on this row, you start diagrams again in height, work A.1 (= 3 dc in the first sc from previous A.1), then repeat A.4 over the next 27 sts (= the last 12 sts from previous A.1 until 1 stitch remain on right sleeve) and finish with A.3 over the next stitch. Happy crocheting!

Muriel B 04.02.2019 - 10:40:

I crochet left handed. Could you please tell me what order I should crochet the diagrams in and whether I should follow them left to right or right to left. I have followed the pattern diagrams left to right in the given order and it does not look right so am wondering whether to do all right to left or change the diagram order to 3 2 1 4 9 8 7 6 5 4 etc

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:13:

Dear Muriel B, the diagrams are here all worked in the round, ie usually RS rows are worked from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round. Maybe you can adjust your work like this, sorry, we are not left-handed crocheters and not sure how to help further, your store may have more tips for you. Happy crocheting!

Isabelle 01.02.2019 - 10:18:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas comment continuer après avoir fait les 6 mailles du l'air pour séparer la manche. Comment reprendre les diagrammes A 6, 7 et 8 ? Merci à vous.

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 14:43:

Bonjour Isabelle, après avoir séparé les mailles des manches et monté les 2 x 6 ml sous les manches, on crochète d'abord 1 tour comme avant (en commençant ce tour au milieu sous la manche), et vous continuez comme indiqué sous chaque pièce: Devant & dos: A.4, A.10, point d'éventails + 1 m comme avant, augmentez comme avant au milieu devant, A.11, point d'éventails et A.4. Autrement dit, vous continuez les motifs comme avant, mais avec A.10 et A.11 sur les côtés du pull pour diminuer sur les côtés. Bon crochet!

Karen Crooks 20.01.2019 - 02:18:

I am making XL size, but when I get to the second section I am stuck on the first working of the “front piece”. After working A5 two times, I don’t have enough room before the next fan to work A6, A7 and A8. There are only 4 sc before the chain 4 starts and I need 10 sc (which will include the first 3 treble crochets for A9. This is the first time I’ve used this time of pattern, but have done fine until this point.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:38:

Dear Mrs Crooks, repeat A.5 and A.9 (2 rows) in height as shown in diagram until A.6 and A.8 have been worked in height (= 12 rows), ie work all stitches as shown in diagram (insert markers between diagrams can help), then when you have finished A.6/A.8, you have now enough sts to work one more repeat A.5/A.9 and repeat A.6 and A.7 in height. Happy crocheting!

Ria Agterberg 07.12.2018 - 06:32:

Nooit problemen gehad met uw patronen maar dit keer, pffffff, uiteindelijk komt het wel goed maar als je in een toer zoveel telpatronen moet gebruiken die ook nog eens kris kras door elkaar staan zorgde bij mij voor vaak moeten uithalen. Daarom voor mijzelf een schema gemaakt en nu gaat het wel goed.

Maryse Demeure 04.12.2018 - 10:00:

Merci pour votre réponse, eh oui c\'est évident, j\'aurais du réfléchir un peu plus pour les rangs A5 et A9

Maryse Demeure 02.12.2018 - 01:45:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas comment continuer le rang 3 pour A5 et A9. Je ne vois pas comment il est possible de reprendre au rang 1. Pourriez-vous m'éclairer svp. Merci d'avance !

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Mme Demeure, quand vous répétez les 2 rangs de A.5/A.9, crochetez 1 bride dans chaque ms et crochetez 1 nope, 4 ml, 1 nope dans la ms entre les 2 arceaux du rang 2 de A.5/A.9, et terminez par 1 bride dans chaque ms. Bon crochet!
