BODY
Worked in the round on circular needles. Read the entire pattern before you begin!
Cast on 180-200-220-240-260-280 sts using both ends of the circular needle (to make sure the edge becomes elastic) with 1 thread of each quality (= double thread). Remove 1 needle and K1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round. Now work M.1 (start at the side).
After 2 repeats of M.1 – piece measures approx 21 cm - insert a marking thread (MT) in the middle of each repeat (see arrow in M.1 = 9-10-11-12-13-14 MT). Continue in stockinette st, at the same time on 2nd and 4th round after M.1 work M.2 over each MT = 144-160-176-192-208-224 sts left. Remove all MT after the last dec. When piece measures 25-25-25-26-26-26 cm insert 6 new MT as follows: K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-1), K 28-28-32-34-36-38 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-2), K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT before next st (= side), K 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts, insert MT (= MT-3), K 28-28-32-34-36-38 sts, insert MT before next st (= MT-4), K remaining 22-26-28-31-34-37 sts and insert a MT (= side).
Now dec 1 st on both sides of the MT at sides (do not dec by the other MT on front and back) – see decreasing tips – on every 5-5-5-6-6-7 round a total of 8-9-9-9-9-9 times.
At the same time when piece measures 31-32-33-35-36-37 cm dec 1 st for cut after MT-1 and MT-3 and before MT-2 and MT-4 – see Decreasing tips – on every 6-6-8-8-8-8 round a total of 4-4-5-5-5-5 times. After all dec are complete there are 96-108-120-136-152-168 sts left. When piece measures 50-51-52-54-56-58 cm inc 1 st after MT-1 and MT-3 and before MT-2 and MT-4 - see Increasing tips above - on every 2-2-2-3-3-3 round row a total of 6-6-6-5-5-5 times = 120-132-144-156-172-188 sts.

Sleeve: Cast on 40-42-44-48-50-54 sts using 2 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 thread of each yarn quality (= double thread). Remove 1 needle and K 1 round on double pointed needles, P 1 round and K 1 round. Work next round as follows: 0-1-2-4-0-2 stockinette sts, M.3 on the next 40-40-40-40-50-50 sts and 0-1-2-4-0-2 stockinette sts. Work 1 repeat of M.3 (piece measures approx 5 cm / 2''). K 1 round, at the same time bind off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts mid under arm for armhole = 32-34-36-38-40-44 sts left. Put sts on a thread and knit the other sleeve.

Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needle as body where bind off for armholes = 168-184-200-212-232-256 sts. Now dec as follows:
Size XS: Work 5 cm / 2'' stockinette sts, at the same time dec 14 sts evenly on the 3rd and 7th round = 140 sts.

Ich möchte das Kleid mit Drops Belle stricken. Meine Maschenprobe ergibt zwar 15 M, aber nur 10 R auf 10 cm (mit doppeltem Faden). Wie verfahre ich am besten?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Birgit, dieses Kleid wird mit 2 Fäden Garngruppe A (= 1 Garngruppe C) gestrickt, Belle gehört aber zur Garngruppe B und ist doch keine Alternative zu diesem Modell. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Joan Honoré 12.06.2018 - 17:45:

Tak for svar. Det står desværre ikke i opskriften, at man efter udtagningerne fortsætter lige op til arb måler 71 cm. Jeg strikker videre :-) mvh Joan

Joan Honoré 11.06.2018 - 23:08:

HEJ, HAR SPØRGSMÅL TIL LÆNGDEN.HVIS MAN STARTER UDTAGNING V 52 CM OG TAGER UD PÅ HVER 2. PIND 6 GANGE GIVER DET 12 PINDE I ALT, HVORDAN KAN DET GIVE 19 CM NÅR I SKRIVER DER SKAL VÆRE 71 CM (OP) TIL ÆRMEGAB ? HÅBER I KAN HJÆLPE, IGEN :-)VH JOAN

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 11:24:

Hej, du tager ikke flere masker ud, men fortsætter til arbejdet måler 71 cm og nu lukker du af til ærmegab i hver side. God fornøjelse!

Lena Kramer 31.10.2017 - 16:12:

Wie soll man den Satz verstehen: Gleichzeitig auf der 2. Und 4. R nach M.1 wird M.2 über jeden markierungsfaden gestrickt

Ida 08.07.2017 - 22:12:

" Samtidigt på 2:a och 4:e v efter M.1 stickas M.2 över varje märktråd = 144-160-176-192-208-224 m kvar på st..." Jag har stickat klart M1. Jag har placerat ut märktrådarna. Hur ska jag kunna sticka M2 på 2:a och 4:e varvet, när M2 består av fyra varv? Då är jag ju halvvägs upp på första M2 när det är dags för nästa??

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 17:16:

Hej! Det har smugit sig in ett fel i beskrivningen, A.2 ska stickas på varv 2 och 6 efter M.1.

Ida 30.04.2017 - 20:00:

Jag har 13 nystan Drops Love You nr 6 här hemma. Naturligtvis kommer jag sticka en provlapp, men kan jag räkna med att Safran & Alpaca går att byta ut mot det garn jag har? Och fungerar en sån här klänning i bomullsgarn?

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 kl. 14:25:

Hej, Ja du kan använda DLY #6, fast du måste ha en tråd till från garngrupp A för att få en stickfasthet med 15 m på 10 cm. Lycka till!

Veronique31 07.03.2017 - 23:54:

Bonsoir, J'en suis presque à la fin mais... "Toutes les tailles : A 5-6-7-8-9-10 cm de hauteur, suivre M4. Après 1 répétition de M4,..." comment répéter M4 ? le rang 1 de M4 est sur 20 mailles le dernier rang est sur 16mailles,?

DROPS Design 08.03.2017 kl. 09:33:

Bonjour Véronique31, vous tricotez 1 fois M.4 en hauteur, puis, après M.4, vos tricotez 2 rangs endroit en ajustant le nombre de mailles à celui indiqué pour votre taille. Bon tricot!

Antonella 18.01.2016 - 06:43:

Buongiorno, io non capisco come avviare le maglie su entrambe le estremità dei ferri circolari. devo avviarne metà per parte o cosa?

DROPS Design 18.01.2016 kl. 08:52:

Buongiorno Antonella. Deve sovrapporre le due punte dei ferri circolari; è come se avviasse le m su un ferro di qualche misura più grande di quello con cui lavorerà in seguito. Il seguente video può aiutarla. Buon lavoro!

Vanda 15.05.2015 - 08:57:

Hallo, Can 1 thread of Cotton Merino or Belle be used instead of the 2 yarns? Has anyone tried it out with nice results? Thanks.

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 09:23:

Dear Vanda, Cotton Merino and Belle belong to group B of our yarn, this dress is worked with 2 strands group A (= 1 strand group C) - see also here alternatives. Happy knitting!

Iris 24.01.2015 - 16:25:

Kan ik de sokkenbreinaalden vervangen door een rondbreinaald?

DROPS Design 26.01.2015 kl. 15:01:

Hoi Iris. Ja, dat is mogelijk. Gebruik een korte rondbreinaald of maak gebruik van de magic loop techniek:
