The key to crochet is patience, so take your time, follow our detailed instructions, and remember that practice makes perfect!

Materials You Will Need:

Before you begin, gather the following materials:

  • DROPS BIG DELIGHT from Garnstudio: 300-500g (depending on your size), color no 09, Atlantis
  • DROPS KARISMA from Garnstudio: 250-400g (depending on your size), color no 60, blue turquoise
  • DROPS CROCHET Hook size 6 mm / J/10

Ensure you have enough yarn and the right hook size to get 12 tr in width x 4.5 tr vertically alternately with 1 round Big Delight and 1 round Karisma = 4” x 4” (10 x 10 cm).


Understanding the Pattern and Basic Techniques:

Before we delve into the step-by-step instructions, it’s essential to understand some key terms and techniques.

  • Decreasing Technique (2 tr tog into 1 tr): Work 1 tr but wait with the last YO and pull through, work 1 tr in the next st but pull the last YO through all 3 sts on the hook.
  • Crochet Tip: Replace the first tr on a round with 4 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in the fourth ch from the beginning of the round.

Step by Step Guide to Creating Your Jacket:

Starting Your Circle:

  1. Start by creating a loop using the Big Delight yarn. Follow the instructions provided under ‘Circle’ in your original pattern to create your starting loop and your first two rounds.

Building Your Circle:

  1. Continue following the instructions under ‘Circle’ in your original pattern to create rounds 3-5.
  2. Keep repeating the 4th and 5th rounds, working 1 tr + 1 ch more between every increase. Continue this until you have the specified number of tr + ch for your size on the round.
  3. Once you reach your desired size, continue following the pattern without increasing. Work on creating the armholes following the pattern provided.

Finishing Your Circle:

  1. Continue following the pattern to create your final rounds, making sure to increase 1 tr + 1 ch more between every increase until your circle measures the correct diameter for your size.
  2. Once you’ve reached the desired size, finish your circle as instructed in the pattern.

Creating Your Sleeves:

  1. Finally, create your sleeves by working in the round from the armhole and downwards. Follow the pattern instructions provided under ‘Sleeves’, remembering to switch colors every round.
  2. Remember to decrease as specified in the pattern to create the shape of the sleeve. Once your sleeve measures the correct length for your size, fasten off. Repeat the same process for the other sleeve.
