EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

CHAIN STITCH:
If you work outermost on the hook the chain stitch will often be too tight; 1 chain stitch should be as long as 1 double crochet is wide.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At the beginning of each row of double crochets start with 1 chain stitch; this does not replace the first double crochet.
At the beginning of each row/round of treble crochets, replace the first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches; i.e. skip the first stitch on the previous row/round. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
ROWS WITH 2 COLOURS:
Work with 3 balls on the same row so you avoid long strands on the wrong side; i.e. work with 1 ball of medium grey/off-white on each side of the piece and 1 ball of off-white/black in the middle.

ROWS WITH 3 COLOURS:
Work with 5 balls on the same row so you avoid long strands on the wrong side; i.e. work with 1 ball of medium grey/off-white on each side of the piece, 1 ball of medium grey/off-white on each side and 1 ball of off-white/black in the middle.

COLOUR CHANGE:
When changing colour work as follows: Work the last treble crochet with the first colour but wait with the pull-through, change to the next colour and work the last yarn over and pull-through then work the next treble crochet with the new colour.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets together as follows:
Work 1 treble crochet but wait with the last yarn over and pull through, work the next treble crochet in the same way. Make 1 yarn over and pull through all the loops on hook (= 1 treble crochet decreased).
Decrease 2 treble crochets by working 3 treble crochets together as follows:
Work 1 treble crochet but wait with the last yarn over and pull through, work 2 more treble crochets in the same way. Make 1 yarn over and pull through all the loops on hook (= 2 treble crochets decreased).

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Increase 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets in the same stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth in parts, bottom up and sewn together to finish.

BACK PIECE:
Work 67-71-75-83-91-99 chain stitches – read CHAIN STITCH, with hook size 5 mm and medium grey. Turn and work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook – read CROCHET INFORMATION, work 1 double crochet in each chain stitch to end of row = 66-70-74-82-90-98 double crochets. Then work back and forth with 1 treble crochet in each stitch. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When the piece measures 12-12-11-11-10-10 cm start working with 2 colours – read PATTERN and COLOUR CHANGE; i.e. the next row is worked as follows:
Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 23-25-27-31-35-39 treble crochets with medium grey, A.1 over the next 20 treble crochets with off-white/medium grey and work 1 treble crochet in each of the remaining 23-25-27-31-35-39 treble crochets with medium grey. When A.1 has been completed in height continue the pattern from the last row, with decreases and increases as before (i.e. decrease 2 stitches and increase 2 stitches between each colour change). Continue like this until you have worked a total of 10-10-11-11-12-12 rows with off-white.
Continue the decreases and increases as before, but start with a new colour and work the next row as follows:
Work as before over the first 23-25-27-31-35-39 treble crochets (with medium grey/off-white), work A.2 over the next 20 treble crochets with off-white/ black and work as before over the remaining 23-25-27-31-35-39 treble crochets (with off-white/medium grey).
When A.2 has been completed in height continue the pattern from the last row, with decreases and increases as before (i.e. decrease 2 stitches and increase 2 stitches between each colour change). Continue like this until there are no more stitches with off-white on either side. The piece measures approx. 44-45-46-49-51-53 cm. Continue back and forth with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and black to finished length.
When the piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm stop working the middle 24-24-24-24-26-26 treble crochets (= neck) = 21-23-25-29-32-36 treble crochets on each shoulder. Work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet on the shoulder at the same time as you decrease 1 treble crochet on the first row, towards the neck – read DECREASE TIP = 20-22-24-28-31-35 treble crochets. Continue until the piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm, cut and fasten the strand. Insert 1 marker in the side, 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm down from the finishing edge; this marks where the sleeves will be sewn in. Work the other shoulder in the same way and insert a similar marker on this side.

FRONT PIECE:
Work in the same way as the back piece. When the piece measures 58-60-61-63-64-66 cm stop working the middle 18-18-18-18-20-20 treble crochets (= neck) = 24-26-28-32-35-39 treble crochets on each shoulder. Work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet on the shoulder at the same time as you decrease 2 treble crochets towards the neck – remember DECREASE TIP. Decrease 2 treble crochets on each row a total of 2 times = 20-22-24-28-31-35 treble crochets. Continue working until the piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm, cut and fasten the strand. Insert 1 marker in the side, 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm down from the finishing edge; this marks where the sleeves will be sewn in. Work the other shoulder in the same way and insert a similar marker on this side.

SLEEVE:
Work 37-37-39-41-41-43 chain stitches – read CHAIN STITCH, with hook size 5 mm and medium grey. Turn and work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook – remember CROCHET INFORMATION, work 1 double crochet in each chain stitch to end of row = 36-36-38-40-40-42 double crochets. Then work back and forth with 1 treble crochet in each stitch.
When the piece measures 6-6-6-5-5-5 cm, start the pattern and when the piece measures 9 cm start to increase on each side as follows:
INCREASE:
When the piece measures 9 cm increase 1 treble crochet in each side of the piece – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 12-7½-7-5½-5-4½ cm a total of 4-6-6-7-8-8 times = 44-48-50-54-56-58 treble crochets.
PATTERN:
When the piece measures 6-6-6-5-5-5 cm work with 2 colours – remember PATTERN and COLOUR CHANGE, i.e. the next row is worked as follows:
Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 8-8-9-10-10-11 treble crochets with medium grey, A.1 over the next 20 treble crochets with off-white/medium grey and 1 treble crochet in each of the remaining 8-8-9-10-10-11 treble crochets with medium grey. When A.1 has been completed in height continue the pattern from the last row, with decreases and increases as before (i.e. decrease 2 stitches and increase 2 stitches between each colour change). Continue like this until you have worked a total of 10-10-11-11-12-12 rows with off-white.
Continue the decreases and increases as before, but start with a new colour and work the next row as follows:
Work A.2 over the middle 20 treble crochets with off-white/black and work as before over the remaining stitches (with off-white/medium grey).
When A.2 has been completed in height continue the pattern from the last row, with decreases and increases as before (i.e. decrease 2 stitches and increase 2 stitches between each colour change). Continue like this until there are no more stitches with off-white on either side.
Then work back and forth with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet and black to finished length.
Continue working until the piece measures 50-50-49-47-46-44 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders). Cut and fasten the strand. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in the sleeves and sew the side and sleeve seams in one go – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.

NECK:
Start with 1 slip stitch on the one shoulder and from the right side work up approx. 72 to 90 treble crochets around the neck with black. Work 1 round of treble crochets and adjust the number of stitches to 72-76-78-82-86-90 treble crochets. Work 1 more round of treble crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

Het patroon klopt echt niet voor maat xxl. Ik haak met haaknaald 3,5. Volgens foto en tekening zou de witte baan ter hoogte van de oksel afgelopen zijn. Echter, als je het patroon aanhoudt is op 52 cm pas de grijze baan weg en heb je nog 24 witte steken aan elke kant.

Bianca 15.08.2019 - 18:50:

Waarom gebruik je bij de meerdering bij de kleurwisseling dubbele stokjes? Daardoor komt de bovenkant van die kleur hoger uit dan de andere kleur van de toer. Ik ben nu op de 5de toer met naturel en ik vind dat het er gek uitziet

Gloria 11.08.2019 - 20:39:

Para cuando estará el patrón disponible en la web?

Gloria 11.08.2019 - 20:38:
