Pattern instructions

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: width of 22 tr x 12 rows on crochet hook size 3 = 10 x 10 cm.
NB: 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: Turn each row with 3 ch.
Increasing tips: Inc 2 tr by crocheting 3 tr in tr with marking thread.

Bikini top: Crochet each cup separately from bottom up. Cups are joined by crocheting together bottom edges.
Cup: Crochet 48-57-66 ch (inclusive 3 ch to turn with) using hook size 3 and Safran.
1st row: 1 tr in the 5thh ch from the hook, *skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 2 ch*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 tr in the last ch = 31-37-43 tr (the first tr = 3 ch). Insert a marking thread in the middle tr and let the thread follow the piece as you progress.
Remaining rows: Crochet 1 tr in each tr – see Crochet info – at the same time inc 2 tr in the middle of the piece – see Increasing tips above – on the next 4-4-5 rows = 39-45-53 tr. Now start decreasing in the middle of the piece: on first row skip 1 tr in the middle of piece, on the following rows skip the middle 2 tr. Continue the dec until there are 4 tr left on row – piece measures approx 18-21-25 cm. Crochet tie-string over the remaining 4 tr – 1 tr in each tr – until string measures approx 40 cm, cut the thread.

Crochet one more cup.

Joining together the cups: Crochet 1 tr in each of the tr at bottom edge on 1 cup and then 1 tr in each of the tr at bottom edge of the other cup = 62-74-86 tr. Crochet 2 rows with 1 tr in each tr, on the last row adjusting number of tr to 61-74-85 – do this by skipping the occasional tr.
Change to crochet hook size 4 and crochet next row as follows:
Size S: 5 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 5 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *2 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 19 ch-loops.
Size M: 5 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 21 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 5 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *2 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, 3 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops.
Size L: 6 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 21 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 6 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *3 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops.
All sizes: Continue like this (i.e. 1 less ch-loop per row) until there are 2 ch-loops left, cut the thread.
Crochet ch-loops round the triangular front piece as follows, using crochet hook size 4 and starting at the top on the right side: 1 dc in the last tr-row before the ch-loops, 3 ch, 1 dc in first ch-loop, *3 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* round the triangle and finish with 1 dc in first tr-row on the left side.

Tie-strings for back: Crochet a tie-string form both sides of bikini top, using crochet hook size 3 and starting in the lower row of tr as follows: 1 sl st and 3 ch, 9 tr along the edge (2 tr in each tr). Turn the piece with 3 ch and crochet 1 tr in each tr. Continue until string measures approx 15-17-19 cm. Now dec 1 tr at the beginning of each row by skipping the first tr from previous row. Continue to decrease until there are 4 tr left on row and continue over these 4 tr until string measures approx 40-45-50 cm. Cut the thread and crochet a similar string the other side.

Tassels: Insert tassels along the sides of triangular front piece. 1 tassel = 2 threads, each 35 cm long. Fold threads, pull loop through ch-loop and pull ends through loop. Put a bead on tassel and tie a knot approx 5 cm from the top. Insert a tassel in every other ch-loop on both sides.

The cup i am working doesnt form a triangle rather the middle part is arising or having "angles". The sides dont get in shape (or forming a triangle) it remain straight. How can i fix this? Thank you.

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 09:15:

Dear Kat, make sure you first increase 2 sts in the middle of piece (4-5 times depending on the size), then decrease first 1 st in the middle of piece (skipping the middle stitch) 1 time and continue skipping the 2 middle sts in the middle of piece until 4 sts remains. Happy crocheting!

Katrin 01.06.2018 - 17:13:

In increasing the decrease of every row is quite confusing. skipping 3stitches leaves a little hole in the middle of a row no matter how tight my tension is. how must i decrease, am i doing correctly?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 08:09:

Dear Katrin, in the middle of piece you will skip 2 sts and this will create a small hole - that belongs to the pattern. If you rather don't want any hole, you can crochet the 3 middle dc tog (= 2 sts dec). Happy crocheting!

Hej! Följer man mönstret med de +2 de 4-5 varven så bildas en utbuktning som är väldigt osmickrande. MEN, om man istället ökar +2 de första 2 varven och sedan bara ökar med +1 tills man kommer upp i antalet 39-45-53 så blir det en mjuk och fin kurva. Ser man på bilden så är det även omöjligt att det är 9 stolpar i början av knytbandet, det ser konstigt ut om man följer det. Gör man bara 4-5 st ser det mer ut som på bilden. /Emelie

Hi, I’m following your pattern however I am unsure of what to do when it states “Crochet tie-string over the remaining 4 tr - 1 tr in each tr” do you have a tutorial for this?

DROPS Design 17.03.2018 kl. 12:26:

Dear Hollie, once a cup is finished, there will be 4 trebles (UK) left at its top edge. Into these 4 stitch the tie is crocheted, with 1 treble into each stitch. We don't have a special video for this particular model, but this videomight help you. Happy crafting!

Name of this pattern should be Indian Summer

Stine 21.06.2017 - 12:31:

Ich denke das safran gelb ist,das foto sieht aber eher lila aus klar unwichtig

DROPS Design 21.06.2017 kl. 17:08:

Liebe Stine, die Farben können je nach Bildschirmeinstellungen unterschiedlich aussehen - dieses Modell wird aber mit Fb no 23 gehäkelt, aber gerne können Sie eine andere Farbe auswählen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Debbie 21.06.2016 - 13:24:

Klopt het dat in dit patroon de st staat voor stokje?

DROPS Design 21.06.2016 kl. 14:29:

Hoi Debbie. Ja, dat klopt

Roseanna 19.07.2015 - 00:17:

I am uncertain how to crochet the triangle. Is it separately crochet then attached? For some reason my triangle is not long at all.

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 15:13:

Dear Roseanna, the lace triangle is worked top down from the both cups joined tog. Remember to check your tension and dec 1 ch-space per row until 2 ch-spaces remain. Happy crocheting!

Zena 16.07.2015 - 04:41:

How do I know what size to make? I haven't been able to find anything that tells me the dimensions of a small, medium, or large.

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 14:07:

Dear Zena, size S is for cup A, size M is cup B and size L is cup C. Happy crocheting!

Agnes 14.06.2015 - 11:47:

Moet er in de cups echt geminderd worden door steken over te slaan? Dan komen er gaatjes in de cups.

DROPS Design 16.06.2015 kl. 15:49:

Hoi Agnes. Ja, dat klopt. De gaatjes vallen wel mee (na eerste keer wassen zullen ze nog kleiner worden), maar je kan minderen door samen te haken bijvoorbeeld als je dat prettiger vindt.
