EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
Diagram A.1 shows how the rounds start and finish and is worked in addition to A.2.
Diagram A.3 shows how the rounds start and finish and is worked in addition to A.4.
Diagram A.5 shows how the rounds start and finish and is worked in addition to A.6.

STRIPES:
The piece is worked in stripes, see numbers 1-3 in the diagrams.
1 = light grey
2 = grey
3 = medium grey

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 48) = 2. In this example, increase by working 2 double crochets around the same stitch after every 2nd double crochet.

PONCHO-SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round. The neck is worked in the round to finish.

YOKE:
Work 112-119-126 chain stitches with hook size 5.5 mm = US I/9 and light grey and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in each of the first 6 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* a total of 15-16-17 times and finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round = 96-102-108 double crochets + 3 chain stitches.
Then work pattern in STRIPES – read description above, as follows:
Read CROCHET INFORMATION, work A.2A a total of 16-17-18 times on the round – on the round marked with an arrow increase 48-54-60 double crochets evenly – read INCREASE TIP = 144-156-168 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
A.2A is now repeated 24-26-28 times in width.
When A.2A has been completed, work A.2B over A.2A – on the round marked with an arrow increase 48-54-60 double crochets evenly = 192-210-228 double crochets.
A.2B is now repeated 32-35-38 times in width.
When A.2B has been completed, work A.2A over A.2B – on the round marked with an arrow increase 48-54-60 double crochets evenly = 240-264-288 double crochets.
A.2A is now repeated 40-44-48 times in width. Continue until A.2A has been worked in height = 80-88-96 chain-spaces. The piece measures approx. 36 cm = 14 1/4”.
Now divide for the body and sleeves by inserting 4 markers in the piece as follows:
Insert 1 marker after the first 13-15-16 chain-spaces (= half back piece), insert 1 marker after the next 14-14-16 chain-spaces (= sleeve), insert 1 marker after the next 26-30-32 chain-spaces (= front piece), insert 1 marker after the next 14-14-16 chain-spaces (= sleeve) and there are now 13-15-16 chain-spaces left on the round (= half back piece).Body and sleeves are divided at the markers.

BODY:
= 52-60-64 chain-spaces. Work A.2B over these stitches AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase 24 double crochets evenly (A.2B is now repeated 30-34-36 times in width) = 180-204-216 double crochets – and on the round marked with an arrow increase 36-42-48 double crochets evenly = 216-246-264 double crochets (A.2B is now repeated 36-41-44 times in width). When A.2B has been completed, work with grey to finished length. Then work A.2C over A.2B a total of 0-1-2 times in height. Cut and fasten the strand. The body measures approx. 8-12-16 cm = 3 1/8”-4 3/4”-6 1/4” from the division.

SLEEVE:
= 14-14-16 chain-spaces. The sleeve is worked in grey to finished length. Start mid under the sleeve and continue as follows: Remember CROCHET INFORMATION, work A.2B a total of 7-7-8 times on the round, but without increasing. When A.2B is finished, work A.4A over A.2B. Then work A.4B over A.4A a total of 1-1-2 times in height. Cut and fasten the strand. The sleeve measures approx. 21-21-25 cm = 8 1/4”-8 1/4”-9 3/4” from the division.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

NECK:
The neck is worked in light grey. Work around the neck as follows – NOTE: You work in the chain stitches where there are double crochets, but do not work in the chain stitches which were missed out: Start mid back, fasten the strand with 1 slip stitch in a double crochet, work 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in the next double crochet, 3 chain stitches, skip 3-1-3 double crochets, 1 single crochet in the next double crochet, * 3 chain stitches, skip 3 double crochets, 1 single crochet in the next double crochet *, work from *-* a total of 22-24-25 times, work 3 chain stitches, skip 3 double crochets and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round = 24-26-27 chain-spaces. Then work A.6 in the round – remember the CROCHET INFORMATION. When A.6 has been finished cut and fasten the strand.

Als ik het patroon lees moet er 2x A2A en 2x A2B gehaakt worden. Op de foto lijkt dit niet zo. Doe ik iets niet goed?

Dag Marielle,

Je breit eerst A.2.a, dan A.2b en dan weer A.2a en daarna verdeel je het werk voor lijf en mouwen. Daarna brei je weer verder in A.2b.

Please someone help me I love this pattern and I\'m a good crocheter but I don\'t understand the chart where you start I don\'t understand and want to make this for somebody in the hospital

DROPS Design 27.11.2018 kl. 08:57:

Dear Mrs Turney, you start working diagrams from 2nd row drawn (the one with a black star shows the previous row so that you know how to crochet the first row) starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round. See diagram key where each symbol matches a stitch /a group of stitches. Happy crocheting!

Hoeveel bollen zijn er benodigd als ik dit patroon in één kleur wil maken?

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 09:53:

Dag Monica,

Dit is niet bekend, maar zal waarschijnlijk rond de 50 tot 100 gram minder zijn. Meestal kun je overgebleven bollen weer inleveren. Vraag je verkooppunt even hoe dit bij hun geregeld is.

This is another attention grabber with the unusual construction and great crochet patterning!

Paz Daza 11.06.2018 - 18:58:

Lo amé !!

Balumu 05.06.2018 - 17:30:

Ein absoluter Hingucker! Es wäre wunderbar, wenn diese Anleitung realisiert werden würde!!!

Lowla 05.06.2018 - 15:08:
