Dress: Crochet 5-5-6 of Square 1 and 5-5-6 of Square 2. Crochet the squares together with brown - see fig. 1 - alternating Square 1 and Square 2.
Pick up and knit 264-264-312 sts on circular needles with brown along the top of the crocheted squares (pick up approx. 26-26-26 sts in every square); join and place a marker at the join.
Knit Pattern 1 and then Pattern 2. At arrow A in the pattern decrease 24-12-24 sts evenly distributed on the row =240-252-288 sts. Then dec 12-12-12 sts evenly distributed at all B arrows = 192-204-240 sts. After Pattern 2 the work measures approx. 40-40-40 cm. Change to beige. Dec 10-6-10 sts evenly distributed on the row when the work measures 43-44-45 cm, 46-48-50 cm and 49-52-55 cm = 162-186-210 sts. When the work measures 57-60-63 cm, knit Pattern 2 once.

Upper part: Knit the upper part from the wrong side so that the wrong side is on the outside. Switch to ivy and turn the work so that the wrong side is out. Knit 1 row of garter st and at the same time decrease 2 sts = 160-184-208 sts. Knit the next row as follows: * K 2 tog, yo *, repeat from *-*. Continue with Pattern 3 over all sts. When the work measures 69-73-76 cm, bind off 10-12-14 sts at each side for armholes. Knit the rest of the front and back separately.

Front: = 70-80-90 sts. Bind off 1 st at each side for armholes every other row - see Knitting tip 2-3-6 times = 66-74-78 sts. When the work measures 74-78- 82 cm, knit the next row as follows (seen from the wrong side): * K 2, yo *, repeat from *-*. On the next row, bind off all sts.

Back: = 70-80-90 sts. Knit to finished dimensions like the front.

Assembly: Turn the work inside out so that the right side is on the outside. Crochet double crochets with ivy and crochet hook size 3 uppermost around the entire dress.

Strap: Crochet 2 straps outermost at each side of the front with 1 cm in between. Crochet 1 strap as follows: row 1: 4 dc (the first dc is replaced by 3 slip sts). Repeat row 1 upwards until the strap measures approx. 20-22-24 cm - adjust the strap length by trying on the dress. Crochet the straps onto the back piece with double crochets.

Twisted cord: Cut 6 strands 250 cm in length in the following colors: 2 strands ivy, 1 strand brown, 1 strand beige, 1 strand turquoise and 1 strand orange. Have a friend help you by holding onto one end of all strands. Twist the strands together until they resist this. Fold the cord double and it will twist itself. Tie a knot in each end and pull the cord through the hole border underneath the upper part.
