Pattern instructions

Knitting tension: 16 sts x 20 rows with 1 thread of each yarn quality in stocking stitch on needle size 5.5mm = 10 x 10 cm

Crochet tension: 1 diamond using crochet hook size 5mm should measure 15 x 15 cm

Decreasing tips (applies to armhole and neck): Decrease within 2 edge sts from the right side. Dec as follows after 2 edge sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso. Dec as follows before 2 edge sts: K2 tog.

DRESS: The dress is knitted in several pieces. Start with the skirt (front and back piece), then knit the top (front and back piece). Crochet the diamonds for the waistband and sew this to skirt and top pieces.

SKIRT: Cast on 80-86-94-102-110 sts (inclusive of 1 edge st each side, edge sts are knitted in garter st throughout) on needle size 5.5 with 1 thread of each yarn quality (= double thread). Knit 1 row from the wrong side and continue in stocking stitch. When piece measures 5-5-5-6-6 cm dec 1 st each side on every 2 cm a total of 12 times = 56-62-70-78-86 sts. When piece measures 29-30-31-32-33 cm knit 1 row from the wrong side and cast off. Knit another piece and sew pieces together at sides within 1 edge st.

TOP - FRONT PIECE: Cast on 56-62-70-78-86 sts (inclusive of 1 edge st each side) on needle size 5.5 with 1 thread of each yarn quality (= double thread). Knit 1 row from the wrong side and continue in stocking st. When piece measures 3-3-4-4-4 cm inc 1 st each side on every 2 cm a total of 5-5-4-4-4 times. At the same time, when piece measures 10-10-11-11-12 cm divide the piece mid front for neck and put half the stitches on a thread. Now decrease for V-neck - see Decreasing tips: on every 4th row 1 st a total of 8-8-8-9-9 times and then on every other row 1 st 4 times. At the same time when piece measures 15 cm dec 4-5-6-8-10 sts at side for armhole. Now dec 1 st for armhole on every other row – see Decreasing tips – a total of 8-9-11-12-13 times. After all decreases for armhole and neckline have been made, there are 9-10-10-10-11 sts remaining. Continue until piece measures 31-32-33-34-35 cm and cast off. Repeat the other side. Note! Knit 1st row from mid front. Start by picking up a st in the first st on the other piece and knit this together with 1st st on row (to avoid a “hole” at the bottom of the V-neck).

TOP - BACK PIECE: Cast on and knit as top front but without the decreases for V-neck. Cast off for armhole as for front piece = 42-44-44-46-48 sts. Continue until piece measures 29-30-31-32-33 cm. Now cast off the middle 22-22-22-24-24 sts for neck. Dec 1 st towards neckline on next row = 9-10-10-10-11 sts left on each shoulder. Continue until piece measures 31-32-33-34-35 cm and cast off.
Sew shoulder and side seams within 1 edge st.

Crochet the diamonds together as follows:

Bonjour à vous tous! J'avais compris cette partie, en faite ce que je ne sais pas, c'est quel point utilisé pour la couture? Merci de votre patience!

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 08:59:

Bonjour Mme Cloutier, cousez à petits points en faisant en sorte que la couture soit le moins visible possible. Bon assemblage!

Manon Cloutier 07.10.2018 - 01:09:

Coudre ce cercle à la jupe et au haut de la robe – assembler de sorte que l’anneau de motif soit au dessus des pièces au tricot, pour cacher les bordures. Je ne sais pas trop comment assembler le haut et le bas de la robe à l'anneau de motif, vous pouvez m'aider s.v.p.

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 08:44:

Bonjour Mme Cloutier, l'anneau de carrés au crochet doit être au-dessus de la partie jersey, assemblez ces carrés au jersey en les posant au-dessus du jersey (vu sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Manon Cloutier 24.09.2018 - 00:36:

Bonjour... Rien d'étonnant, je sais;-)! J'ai encore besoin de votre précieuse aide! Je travail dans la taille S et je n'arrive pas à saisir la section ''assemblage'', j'ai beau essayer, je n'y arrive tout simplement pas;(! Mes carrés sont tous fait et j'arrive pour les joindre ensembles et zuttttt , j'y arrive pas! S.O.S.

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 10:05:

Bonjour Mme Cloutier, les carrés sont assemblés entre eux 2 par 2 sur un des côtés jusqu'à ce qu'ils forment un anneau. Cette vidéo montre comment faire (suivez bien les indications du modèle, la vidéo est "standard"). Quand vous les avez tous assemblé, vous avez un "anneau" que vous allez coudre entre le haut et le bas de la robe. Bon assemblage!

Manon Cloutier 27.08.2018 - 13:41:

A 3-3-4-4-4 cm de hauteur totale, augm 1 m de chaque côté 5-5-4-4-4 fois tous les 2 cm. En même temps, à 10-10-11-12-12 cm de hauteur totale, diviser l’ouvrage en 2 pour l’encolure et mettre la moitié des m en attente sur un fil, puis diminuer pour former l’encolure V : 8-8-8-9-9 fois 1 m tous les 4 rangs, puis 4 fois 1 m tous les 2 rangs. Comment augmenter et diminuer en même temps? Je n'arrive tout simplement pas sniffff

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 12:34:

Bonjour Mme Cloutier, vous commencez d'abord par augmentez de chaque côté comme indiqué, puis, à 10-12 cm (cf taille), divisez l'ouvrage en 2 pour l'encolure et continuez chaque côté séparément en continuant les augmentations jusqu'à ce qu'elles soient finies et en même temps, diminuez pour l'encolure: pour le côté gauche (quand on porte la robe): vous augmentez en début de rang sur l'endroit et diminuez en fin de rang sur l'endroit, pour le côté droit, vous diminuez en début de rang sur l'endroit et augmentez en fin de rang sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Bob Waddell 23.06.2015 - 17:04:

Please disregard my question from a couple of days ago about round 7 of the diamond pattern. I discovered that I had misread the instructions for round 6 and it caused issues in the following round. All is well.

Bob Waddell 22.06.2015 - 02:15:

Is it possible that there is a slight error in the instruction for the 7th round of the diamonds pattern? In the corners the dc in next dc, 4 ch, dc in next dc does not work out correctly. It looks like "1 dc in next dc, 4 ch, 1 dc in next dc (= corner)" should be "1 dc in next dc, 4 ch, 1 dc in same dc (= corner)". Please let me know if I am missing something.

DROPS Design 22.06.2015 kl. 19:12:

Dear Mr Waddell, on round 6, you have in each coerner (in the dtr from round 5) 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc. On round 7 you work 1 dc in the dc, 4 ch, 1 dc in the next dc. Happy crocheting!

Elisabeth Wigg 06.06.2015 - 08:50:

Nettopp ferdig med en nydelig kjole til datter :) Lett å følge oppskrift, sammenhekling av ruter ble redusert til 5lm for å passe. Men trådmengdene ble akkurat nok, ingen plass for svinn av bomullstråden u/shine.

Angel 16.12.2014 - 09:18:

Can you help me on this, If I were to choose Drops Safran colour no.15 dark heather for this summer dress, which colour of Drops Cotton Viscose do you think can best match the Safran colour I have chosen? Tq

DROPS Design 16.12.2014 kl. 09:59:

Dear Angel, please contact your DROPS store for any help choosing colours, they will help you and can give you tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Renate 03.06.2014 - 18:38:

DROPS Design 04.06.2014 kl. 11:05:

Renate 03.06.2014 - 18:38:

Hallo, was bedeutet bitte bei Reihe 6: 1 feste Masche oben am Blatt, bedeutet das in die Luftmasche? Danke Schöne Grüße Renate

DROPS Design 04.06.2014 kl. 09:23:

Liebe Renate, es ist die feste M gemeint, die Sie in Reihe 5 in die Spitze des Blattes gehäkelt haben. Weiterhin gutes Gelingen!
