NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Crochet Gauge: 16 dc/dtr in the width and 5 texture rows in the length (1 row of DC + 1 row of dtr x 5) on hook size 4.5 = 10 x 10 cm. Note: Because of different crochet techniques used by the individual, the gauge may vary, so you might have to drop/go up a hook size to obtain the correct gauge.

Crochet info: Replace the 1st dc on each “dc row” with a ch, and the 1st dtr on each “dtr row” with 4 ch. Finish every “dc row” with a dc in the 4th ch from beginning of the previous row, and every “dtr row” with a dtr in the 1st ch from beginning of the previous row.

Texture pattern: *1 row of dtr, 1 row of dc* repeat from *-* until finish – Note: Crochet into each dtr/dc and not in between.

Bind off tips: Bind off at the beginning of row: Replace 1 dc/dtr with a sl st. Bind off at the end of row: Turn the piece when the number of dc/dtr’s to be bound off are left on row and crochet back again.

Increasing tips: Inc. 1 dc/dtr at each side as follows: Crochet an extra dc/dtr in the second and second but last dc/dtr on each side.

Crochet the 1st row as follows: 1 dc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1dc in the next ch *skip 1 ch, 1 dc in the next 2 ch* repeat from *-* Note: For sizes L + XL + XXL finish with a dc in the last 3 ch (instead of in the last 2 ch) = 71-77-84-92-100 dc, turn the piece. Continue to crochet in texture pattern – see above description and remember to check your crochet gauge. When the piece measures 5 cm bind off 1 dc/dtr at each side on approx. every 3-3-3.5-3.5-4 cm a total of 8 times – see bind off tips above = 55-61-68-76-84 dc/dtr. When the piece measures 30-32-34-36-38 cm inc. 1 dc/dtr at each side on approx every 6-6-5-5-5 cm a total of 3 times – see increasing tips above = 61-67-74-82-90 dc/dtr.

When the piece measures 59-62-65-67-70 cm insert a marking thread in the centre dc/dtr st (for sizes L + XL + XXL insert the marking thread in between the centre 2 dc/dtr). Bind off for neckline as follows: Crochet from the shoulder in towards the neck until 8-8-9-9-9 dc/dtr left before the marking thread, turn the piece. Continue to bind off on every row at the neck side – see bind off tips: 2 dc/dtr 1 time and 1 dc/dtr 1 time = 17-18-18-19-19 dc/dtr left for shoulder. When the piece measures 66-69-72-75-77 cm cut the thread. Repeat for the other side.

When the piece measures 66-69-72-75-78 cm cut the thread. Repeat for the left side, but when the piece measures 66-69-72-75-78 cm crochet 3 rows of dc (1 dc in each dc/dtr from previous row)), for button edge, cut the thread (NB: Do not crochet over the centre 23-23-24-24-24 dc/dtr = neckline).

Sleeve: Crochet loosely 51-52-55-58-61 ch (inclusive of 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 4.5 in Karisma.

Assembly: Sew tog. the right shoulder seam – edge to edge – with small stitches.

Neck: Crochet approx. 56-64 dc around the neck (including the button edge) on hook size 4.5 with Karisma. Crochet texture pattern back and forth. When the neck measures approx 8-8-8-9-9 cm cut the thread.

Turn the piece and crochet a row of dc – at the same time crochet 5 button holes evenly distributed NB: make 2 button holes on the neck edge itself (the top one should be approx 1.5 to 2 cm from the top), the others should be evenly distributed. 1 button hole = crochet in dc to the place where you want the button to be, crochet 4 ch, and 1 dc in the same dc.

Sew in the sleeves with small stitches. If it is difficult to make it look neat, crochet the sleeves to the armhole instead as follows: Crochet 1 dc alternately between the sleeve and the armhole with a ch in between.

Goedemiddag, Vandaag de mouwen gemaakt, maar ik begrijp niet goed hoe ze aan het pand vastgemaakt moeten worden. De bovenkant van de mouw kan ik mooi vastmaken aan het voor of achterpand, maar de mouw is niet lang genoeg om rondom vastgemaakt te worden. moet ik nog twee mouwen erbij haken? Ik hoop dat u mijn vraag begrijpt en dat u me verder kunt helpen.

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 14:09:

Dag Chralotte,

Je vraag is me niet helemaal duidelijk. De mouwkop moet tegen de schouder komen de onderkant van de mouw in de zijnaad. Als de mouw te krap is om hem erin te zetten kan het zijn dat de stekenverhouding niet helemaal klopt en dat je misschien extra toeren in de mouw kop moet verwerken. (Met extra mouw bedoel je denk ik extra toer?),

Kathy 05.02.2019 - 04:44:

So I'm trying to figure out how much you want and I need and I see a that the yarn described here is in 50 grams skins and for a small it would be approximately 650 grams.I need to know how many yards of yarn I will need of a medium-grade yarn. And I realize proximate measurement but can you help me at all. I have looked at a number of conversion charts and I still can't figure it out.

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 08:08:

Hi Kathy, The Karisma yarn has approx. 109 yds per 50 g ball, so for 650 grams you will get 13 x 109 yds = 1417 yds. Happy crocheting!

Tina 30.07.2018 - 17:08:

I’ve now almost finished making this dress in olive green and I’m very happy with the result. I made the skirt part longer. I would like to make a second one in a different colour, but using the star stitch, would I need more than 650g for a small size? How much wool would I need?

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 09:43:

Dear Tina, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every individual request. You are welcome to contact your DROPS store for any further personnal assistance. Happy crocheting!

Linda 18.06.2017 - 10:41:

Ik zie nr 62 (bruin) van DROPS Karisma Superwash niet meer op de kleurenkaart staan; is deze kleur uit het assortiment gehaald?

DROPS Design 01.11.2017 kl. 19:02:

Hoi Linda, Ja, dat klopt, deze kleur is niet meer in het assortiment. Donkerbruin of chocoladebruin is een goed alternatief.

Hilde 04.02.2017 - 17:04:

Hoeveel bollen garen heb ik nodig voor deze jurk?

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:14:

Anna Townend 31.12.2016 - 13:21:

Hello and happy new year! I'm having to re-start the dress as something went wrong. I'm wondering if it's because i ignored this instruction in the crochet info as i didnt understand. Pls could you clarify what it means? "Finish every “dc row” with a dc in the 4th ch from beginning of the previous row, and every “dtr row” with a dtr in the 1st ch from". Thank you!

DROPS Design 02.01.2017 kl. 08:43:

Dear Mrs Townend, at the beg of each row you will replace the first st with some chains: start each dc row with 1 ch (= 1st dc) and start each dtr row with 4 ch (= 1st dtr) - at the end of each dc row work the last dc in the 4th ch from beg of previous row and at the end of each dtr row work the last dtr in the 1st ch from beg of previous row. Happy crocheting!

Anna Townend 29.10.2016 - 13:45:

Hi. I'm working the armholes on the front. I know what binding off is but I don't know how these instructions relate to it: 3dc/dtr 0-0-0-1-2 times, 2 dc/dtr 1-1-1-2-2 times and 1 dc/dtr 0-2-2-3-4 times = 57-59-60-62-62 dc/dtr. I'm not sure what the 0-0-0-1-2 refers to. Please can you help? Thanks!

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 09:48:

Dear Mrs Townend, in the first 3 sizes you will not dec 3 sts, but directely start dec 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 0-2-2 times (= only in the 2nd and 3rd size). Happy crocheting!

Lena 17.03.2015 - 15:11:

Hi, I am confused about the border at the bottom. Why does 1dc 6Ch equals (1 dtr + 2ch skip 2dc 1dtr in next dc, 2ch)?? which one am I supposed to follow? Same for the following rows.. thanks

DROPS Design 17.03.2015 kl. 16:16:

Dear Lena, a bracket is missing and will be added, you start with 1 dc, then work 6 ch (= replace 1 dtr + 2 ch), then work from *-* and join round with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Carolyn 04.12.2014 - 03:49:

I'm confused about the back. I have finished the front, and it says to make the back the same way... at least past the armholes. After that, it says to continue until it measures 73 cm (I'm making an XL). BUT, do you make the neck the same way as you do the front? For the front, the neck was started at 67 cms, not 73. So do you not make a neck decrease in the back?? Or do you go to 73 cm, then only make a row or two of 19? Thanks you for any help you can give me to clear this up!!

DROPS Design 04.12.2014 kl. 11:13:

Dear Carolyn, neckline on front piece is deeper than on back piece - on back piece you continue until piece measures 73 cm, then work for shoulder on the 19 sts on the right side of piece for 2 more cm (piece measures 75 cm) - on the left side, you will crochet longer to make the buttonband. Happy crocheting!

Robbalina 17.12.2013 - 23:57:

Can this be done in a different kind of yarn? like redheart super saver or something else?

DROPS Design 18.12.2013 kl. 09:43:

Dear Robbalina, you'll find more informations about our yarn under shademap for each of them and on the list of groups from A to F to find an alternative. Happy crocheting!
