EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

CROCHET TIP:
When working triple treble crochets at the beginning of row, work 5 chain stitches instead of 3 chain stitches at the beginning of row.

STRIPES-1:
* Work 1 round with grey, 1 round with summer meadow *, work from *-*.

STRIPES-2:
Row from right side (3 treble crochets + 1 chain stitch): summer meadow.
Row from wrong side (1 treble crochet + 4 chain stitches): grey.

COLOUR CHANGE:
When working diagrams A.1 and A.2 you crochet stripes in the round, every other stripe in each colour. To avoid having to cut the strand after every round, the strand you’re not currently working with can be pulled along until the next round.
When working stripes back and forth the strand needs to be cut and fastened after every row.

JACKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE GARMENT:
Work first 12 crochet squares in total. For front pieces work 4 square together into one long strip.

Undrar vad ” v ” på andra varvet betyder i diagrammet A4a? Mvh Marie

DROPS Design 12.04.2019 kl. 07:45:

Hei Marie. Det ble gjort en rettelse i A.4a den 19.03.2019 der V-en på 2. rad ble endret til en T = 1 fastmaske. Kan det være denne v-en du sikter til? God fornøyelse

Mary Ann 10.04.2019 - 17:03:

Are the numbers at the bottom of the diagram of the entire sweater flat - the number of stitches or clusters? They don’t add up. Please help so I can finish this. Darling sweater but poorly written pattern.

DROPS Design 11.04.2019 kl. 09:51:

Dear Mary Ann, the numbers in the measurment chart are matching the measurements of piece in cm taken flat from side to side - read more about sizing here. There might be hundred ways to write and format patterns, you may just try to read it again with new eyes - read more about crochet diagrams here - for any question you are welcome to ask your question here and for any individual assistance, please contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Cheryl Wieger 04.04.2019 - 02:06:

Could you please explain how to work the collar. The pattern doesn't tell how many repeticions of A4, B4, or C4.What part of the collar do you sew to right side?

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 09:52:

Dear Mrs Wieger, you crochet 21 rows in A.4 a-b-c: the last 2 rows a total of 20 times + 1 more time the row 2. The right side of collar (seen from RS) = A.4a (= the shortest part of collar) will be then sewn along the neckline. Happy crocheting!

Non è facile per un principiante seguire queste istruzioni. Dovreste mettere istruzioni passo passo. Comunque grazie

Fabie74 18.03.2019 - 22:35:

Bonsoir, Merci Drops Design pour votre réponse. J’ai fait des recherche sur les modèle existants en crochet. Et aparament le V correspond à: v = 1 maille serrée autour de la maille en l'air/de l'arceau. Bien cordialement
