Hello Everybody, maybe you can help explain to me the pattern of this jacket i wanted to make.

This is from garnstudio.com and i really find it difficult to understand because it's very confusing where to start by looking at the diagram and the explanation also confuses me. This will be my first time to make a jacket. Pls help. Thanks very much.

Drops patterns are often very hard to understand because they are usually translated from Norwegian (I think).

I've never done crochet patterns like this so I'm no help with it. Do be as specific as possible when asking questions though so we can help you.

Just as the jacket will be assembled from pieces (body, 2 sleeves, collar) so the instructions are written in pieces. M.1. is a drawing/diagram within one of the attached images. These drawings use crochet symbols to show the pattern repeat.

I think I'd start by transcribing the pattern for the size desired.
