EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.11 (A.5 applies to sizes XL/XXL and XXXL).

CROCHET INFORMATION:
On each row of treble crochets, the first treble crochet is replaced by 3 chain stitches. The 3 chain stitches count as 1 treble crochet when counting stitches.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets in 1 treble crochet.

DECREASE TIP-1:
Decrease 1 treble crochet as follows: * Make 1 yarn over, insert hook through next stitch, pick up strand, make 1 yarn over and pull strand through the first 2 loops on hook *, work from *-* 1 more time, make 1 yarn over and pull strand through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 treble crochet decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on round (e.g. 48 stitches) and divide by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 3) = 16. In this example work each 15th and 16th treble crochet together.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SQUARE JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth. First you work the back piece, then right side, armhole and front piece. Then the left side, armhole and front piece. Sleeves are worked in the round, top down.

BACK PIECE:
Work 163-163-183-183 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Merino. Turn and work pattern back and forth as follows in the different sizes:

Sizes S/M and L:
Work A.1 over the first 6 chain stitches - read CROCHET INFORMATION, A.2a over the next 24 chain stitches, A.3a over the next 108 chain stitches (= 3 repeats), A.4a over de the next 19 chain stitches, A.1 over the remaining 6 chain stitches on row = 138-138 stitches.

Sizes XL/XXL and XXXL:
Work A.1 over the first 6 chain stitches - read CROCHET INFORMATION, A.2a over the next 24 chain stitches, A.3a over the next 108 chain stitches (= 3 repeats), A.4a over the next 19 chain stitches, A.5 over the next 20 chain stitches, A.1 over the remaining 6 chain stitches on row = 155-155 stitches.

All sizes:
NOTE: A.1 is worked on each side of the piece to finished length. The first row worked is from the right side; insert a marker to show the right side of the piece.
Continue with A.2b, A.3b, A.4b and A.5b (applies to sizes XL/XXL and XXXL) in height a total of 3 times. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Now work a row with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 2 treble crochets around each chain-space (A.1 worked as before on each side), at the same time increase 1-1-0-0 treble crochets on row – read INCREASE TIP = 139-139-155-155 stitches. The piece measures approx. 32 cm in all sizes. Cut the strand. Insert a marker thread in last row worked. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

RIGHT SIDE, ARMHOLE AND FRONT PIECE:
Now continue working from the wrong side, i.e. 2 rows after one another from the wrong side: Work A.1 over the first 6 stitches, A.6 as far as the next A.1, but the last time when working A.6 skip the last double crochet/chain stitch in diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical on each side) = 32-32-36-36 repeats of A.6, A.1. Work the next row in the diagram back from the right side. Size S/M is finished. In sizes L, XL/XXL and XXXL repeat these 2 rows until you have worked 4-4-6 rows of the pattern.

All sizes:
Now work the armhole as follows (from the wrong side): A.1, work 8 repeats of A.6, work 36-40-40-44 chain stitches for armhole, skip the next 9-10-10-11 repeats of A.6, work 1 double crochet around the next chain stitch and continue with A.6 as far as the next A.1, but the last time you work A.6 skip the last double crochet/chain stitch in diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical inside A.1 on each side), A.1.
Continue back and forth with A.6 and A.1 on each side of the piece; over the 36-40-40-44 loose chain stitches work 9-10-10-11 repeats of A.6 for armhole = a total of 32-32-36-36 repeats of A.6 inside A.1 on each side. Repeat the last 2 rows in A.6 until the piece measures approx. 6-8-8-10 cm from the marker thread – adjust so that the last row worked is the last row in the diagram.
Now work 1 row with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch (A.1 is worked on each side of the piece as before), at the same time increase 1-1-0-0 treble crochet = 140-140-155-155 stitches. Then work pattern as follows: A.1, A.7 as far as the next A.1, but the last time A.7 is worked skip the last treble crochet in the diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical on each side) and finish with A.1. When A.7 has been completed in height, repeat the last 2 rows in A.7 until the piece measures 26-28-32-34 cm from the marker thread; adjust so that the last row worked is from the wrong side. Now work 1 row with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch (A.1 is worked on each side as before). Now work pattern as follows: A.1, A.8 as far as the next repeat of A.1, but the last time A.8 is worked skip the last treble crochet in the diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical on each side) and finish with A.1. On the last row of A.8 decrease 2-2-0-0 treble crochets evenly spaced = 138-138-155-155 treble crochets. Now work pattern in the different sizes as follows:

Sizes S/M and L:
Work A.1, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 20 treble crochets (= A.2a), * work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 12 treble crochets, 2 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 16 treble crochets (= A.3a) *, work from *-* a total of 3 times, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 16 treble crochets (= A.4a) and finish with A.1. Now work A.2b-A.4b as before inside A.1 on each side. When A.2b-A.4b have been completed in height, work the last row with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch inside A.1 on each side of the piece. Cut and fasten strand. The piece measures approx. 42-44 cm from the marker thread (40-40 cm from the armhole).

Sizes XL/XXL and XXXL:
Work A.1, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 20 treble crochets (= A.2a), * work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 12 treble crochets, 2 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 16 treble crochets (= A.3a) *, work from *-* a total of 3 times, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 16 treble crochets (= A.4a), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 17 treble crochets (= A.5) and finish with A.1. Now work A.2b-A.5b as before inside A.1 on each side. When A.2b-A.5b have been completed in height, work the last row with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch inside A.1 on each side of the piece. Cut and fasten strand. The piece measures approx. 48-50 cm from the marker thread (44-44 cm from the armhole).

LEFT SIDE, ARMHOLE AND FRONT PIECE:
Work outwards to the other side from the row of chain stitches worked at the beginning of the piece, starting from the right side as follows:
Work A.1 over the first 6 chain stitches, work 2-2-1-1 treble crochets in next chain stitch, continue with 1 treble crochet in each chain stitch until there are 6 stitches left, but skip the same chain stitch skipped on first row on first piece worked and work A.1 over the next 6 chain stitch = 139-139-155-155 treble crochets. Insert a marker thread in this row. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE.
Now work as follows from the wrong side:
Work A.1 over the first 6 stitches, A.6 as far as the next A.1, but the last time A.6 is worked skip the last double crochet in diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical on each side), A.1. Work the next row in the diagram back from the right side. Now size S/M is finished. In sizes L, XL/XXL and XXXL repeat the pattern in height until you have worked a total of 4-4-6 rows of pattern.

All sizes:
Now work the armhole as follows (from the wrong side): A.1, work 15-14-18-17 repeats of A.6, 36-40-40-44 loose chain stitches for armhole, skip the next 9-10-10-11 repeats of A.6, work 1 double crochet around the next chain stitch, then work 8 repeats of A.6, but the last time A.6 is worked skip the last double crochet in the diagram (so that the pattern is symmetrical on each side) and finish with A.1 = 32-32-36-36 repeats of A.6 inside A.1 on each side. Continue back and forth with A.6 and A.1 on each side of the piece; over the loose 36-40-40-44 chain stitches worked for the armhole, work 9-10-10-11 repeats of A.6 = a total of 32-32-36-36 repeats of A.6 inside A.1 on each side. Continue with pattern in the same way as the right front piece.

SLEEVE:
The sleeves are worked in the round from the armhole down.
Start mid under the armhole with A.9 (= start of round), work A.6 (= row of chain-spaces + 1 double crochet) to the top of the armhole (= 9-10-10-11 repeats), work 9-10-10-11 repeats of A.6 around the row of chain stitches worked for the armhole = a total of 18-20-20-22 repeats of A.6 for the sleeve. Continue like this in the round. When the piece measures 4 cm decrease on each side as follows: Work A.9, A.10, work A.6 until there are 2 repeats of A.6 left on the round, work A.11. When A.10 and A.11 have been completed in height you have decreased 2 repeats of A.6 on the round and you have room for 16-18-18-20 repeats of A.6 on the round. Continue in the round with pattern and repeat the decrease when the sleeve measures 12 cm and 20 cm = 12-14-14-16 repeats. Continue working until the sleeve measures 52 cm – adjust so you finish after the last round in A.6. Now work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch at the same time as you decrease 3-5-5-4 treble crochets evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP = 45-51-51-60 treble crochets left on round. Work A.8 in the round – each round starts with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in beginning of round. The sleeve measures approx. 56 cm. Cut and fasten strand. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour chère Madame, J'aimerais faire ce modèle mais en plus classique ( sans la pointe devant) avec une encolure et le devant à la même hauteur que le dos. Pouvez m'expliquer comment faire pour adapter ce modèle? Avec tous mes remerciements anticipés. Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 11:28:

Bonjour Chris, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. Vous pouvez vous inspirer des explications du dos et du devant pour le modifier à votre guise. Bon crochet!

Julie Lefebvre 01.04.2019 - 00:17:

Bonjour,je fait le patron cm-109 tout vas bien jusqu’a Ce que j’arrive à la deuxième parti le coter gauche.. quand je lis le patron je comprend qu’il faut faire A6 mais si je regarde la photo de la veste il y a 2 série de losange dans le dos dans la lecture du patron on fait A6 et après on commence emmanchures mais rien n’indique que je dois faire le motif de losange une deuxième fois est-ce une erreur de votre part ou si je ne fait pas le deuxième motifs? Je fait grandeur m

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 14:42:

Bonjour Mme Lefebvre, sur la 1ère partie du dos, on répète les losanges 3 fois au total en hauteur (= 3 x A.2b,A.3b, A.4b), puis pour le 2ème côté du dos, on va simplement commencer l'emmanchure (le dos ne commence pas au milieu). Bon crochet!

Linda Boulton 23.03.2019 - 22:58:

Can you please explain what group A or B yarn are

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 11:03:

Dear Mrs Boulton, you will find all informations about our yarn groups here. Happy crocheting!

Laura 28.02.2019 - 21:39:

I'm reading and trying to work on this pattern, I was trying to make and xl it calls for me to chain 183 but the pattern only calls for 155 stitches that leaves 28 stitches unaccounted for. Is this wrong or am I counting wtong?

DROPS Design 01.03.2019 kl. 10:29:

Dear Laura, since the fundation chain is often tighter than the next rows, you crochet more chains than required on first row, and, on the first row in pattern you will skip chains evenly as shown in the diagrams (see 4th symbol in diagram) so that you get 155 sts over 183 chains. Happy crocheting!

Sine Dedenroth 16.02.2019 - 23:17:

Hej Drops. Jeg vil bare lige være helt sikker. Når jeg læser diagrammerne i opskriften på denne trøje, er det så korrekt at 1.række læses fra højre mod venstre, 2.række læses fra venstre mod højre, 3.række fra højre mod venstre - osv. altså skiftevis? Eller læses alle rækker fra højre mod venstre? Mvh Sine

DROPS Design 19.02.2019 kl. 15:25:

Hei Sine. Siden det hekles frem og tilbake leser du diagrammet slik: Annenhver rad fra høyre og annenhver rad fra venstre. Som du sier blir 1 rad fra høyre mot venstre, 2 rad fra venstre mot høyre osv - den aller første raden (med sort stjeren) er heklet fra før. Så helt teknisk begynner du på rad 2 i diagrammet (men denne leses da fra høyre mot venstre). Du begynner nederst i høyre hjørne og jobber deg oppover. God fornøyelse

Agnieszka 12.02.2019 - 09:01:

Czy zamiast wprowadzać tyle symboli na określenie długości łańcuszka, nie prościej byłoby użyć symbolu łuczku z cyfrą określającą ilość oczek? Spotkałam się wielokrotnie z takim sposobem i jest bardziej czytelny - nie trzeba ciągle sprawdzać w legendzie.

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 17:53:

Witaj Agnieszko! Dziękujemy za twoją cenną uwagę. Zostanie przekazana do odpowiedniej jednostki i być może w przyszłości wdrożona :)

Renate 11.02.2019 - 15:33:

Bij het opzetten van het achterpand moet ik 163 lossen haken. Dan moet ik patroon A1, A2a, A3a (3x), A4a en A1 haken. Echter, er staat dat dit 138 steken zijn. Maar ik heb 163 steken moeten opzetten? Kunt u uitleggen wat ik moet doen?

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 11:14:

Dag Renate,

Dat komt omdat er af en toe een losse van de opzetketting overgeslagen wordt. In de patronen zie je bij de eeste rij (de ketting van lossen die je hebt opgezet) af en toe een ruitje staan; hier sla je de eerste van de 2 lossen over.

Birgitta Annelin 06.02.2019 - 18:34:

I diagramförklaringen står det att X= 7 luftmaskor är det verkligen rätt? Skall inte X vara en fast maska?

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 09:30:

Hei Birgitta. Jo, det har du helt rett i. Dette har nå blitt rettet. Takk for beskjed, og god fornøyesle

DAWN STEWART 05.02.2019 - 15:16:

I see many people have questions about A4 and A5. have you made a solution yet?? Thanks so much

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 11:07:

Dear Mrs Stewart, at the end of A.4 you crochet 3 chains, then at the beg of A.5 you crochet 2 chains = the ch-space will have 5 chains as other ch-spaces same row/diagram, it's fine. Happy crocheting!

Femy 03.02.2019 - 12:43:
