DROPS design: Pattern no cm-047
Yarn group B
Size: S/M – L/XL – XXL/XXXL
DROPS COTTON MERINO from Garnstudio
500-600-700 g colour no 09, ice blue
CROCHET HOOK SIZE 4 mm – or size needed to get 18 tr x 9 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
PATTERN: See diagrams A.1 to A.6.
Work 1 tr around next ch-space but wait with last pull through, work next tr around next ch-space (do not work 3 ch between tr), on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
CROCHET TIP (applies to sleeve):
After last tr on the round, continue to next round with 1 tr in next ch-space (= first ch-space on next round). NOTE: Insert 1 marker at the beg of round between last ch and first tr on the next round, move the marker upwards.
NOTE: MAKE SURE NOT TO DISPLACE THE MARKER.
JACKET WORKED IN A CIRCLE:
Worked in the round from the centre and outwards.
Work 4 ch with Cotton Merino on hook size 4 mm and form a ring with 1 sl st.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 6 repetitions in width) NOTE: A.x shows how every round beg and end, and is in addition to pattern. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When entire A.1 has been worked vertically (= 132 tr), continue as follows: Work * A.2 (= 11 tr), A.3 (= 11 tr) *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total. Work up to and with arrow in diagram - see arrow for your size, there are now 228-252-264 sts on round. Work next round as follows: Continue to work over the first 34-36-38 sts, work 36-40-44 ch, and skip the next 36-40-44 sts (= armhole), work until 70-76-82 sts remain, work 36-40-44 ch and skip the next 36-40-44 sts (= armhole), continue to work over the last 34-36-38 sts. On next round continue according to pattern, work pattern as in diagram around ch-spaces in each side. When A.2 and A.3 have been worked, there are 312 tr on round. Continue with A.4 (= 39 repetitions on round). First round in A.4 shows last round in A.2/A.3, do not work this round. Continue to work as follows: Work * A.5 (= 26 tr), A.6 (= 26 tr) *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total. When A.5/A.6 have been worked, there are 600 sts on round (150 tr with 3 ch between each). Finish size S/M here.
Size M/L -XXL/XXXL: Work 2-4 more rounds as last round in A.5/A.6 = 162-174 tr with 3 ch between.
Piece measures approx. 46-49-52 cm from centre (92-98-104 cm in total).
Work back and forth in the one side with short rows. Cut the yarn, skip the first 13-16-19 tr on round, then work over the next 49 tr + ch-spaces as follows (insert a marker here):
Work 3 ch, skip 1 ch-space, 1 dc around next ch-space, 3 ch (these 2 ch-spaces are no longer worked), 1 tr around next ch-space, work pattern as before until 2 ch-spaces remain (i.e. ch-spaces between tr, do not work around these 2 ch-spaces anymore), turn piece. Continue the short rows like this, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 tr + 3 sts in the middle ch-space on every row (work 1 tr + 3 ch + 1 tr in this space). Continue with inc and dec on every row until piece measures 15 cm from marker.
Skip 26-32-38 tr, then work short rows over the next 49 tr (13-16-19 tr remain on round). Work the same way as in the other side.
Work an edge around the entire circle as follows: 1 dc around first ch-space, * 3 ch, 1 dc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Fasten off.
Worked in the round, top down. Beg mid under one armhole, work 1 dc around first ch-space, 6 ch (= 1 tr + 3 ch), skip first tr and work 1 tr around next ch-space, * 3 ch, 1 tr around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round (work 1 tr + 3 ch around tr in corners), finish round with 1 tr around first 6 ch, then continue to work in the round without finishing it – READ CROCHET TIP = 21-23-25 tr + 21-23-25 ch-spaces.
Continue with 1 tr + 3 ch around every space. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 ch-space before marker - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 4½ cm 7 more times, dec alternately before and after marker = 13-15-17 tr + 13-15-17 ch-spaces. Continue until piece measures 42-43-44 cm.
CROCHET EDGE SLEEVES:
Crochet an edge around the sleeves as follows: 1 dc around first ch-space, * 3 ch, 1 dc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Fasten off. Work the other sleeve the same way.source
