Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

Crochet Gauge: width of 17 dtr and 6 rows on crochet hook size 4 = 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: At the beginning of each row replace the 1st dtr with 4 ch, and finish each row with 1 dtr in 4th ch from beginning of previous row. Crochet in each st and not in between.

Decreasing tips (applies to side): Because you increase 2 dtr continuously mid front, you need to dec 1 dtr each side to keep number of sts constant. When you then have to dec each side to decrease number of sts, do this by dec 1 extra dtr each side. Dec 1 dtr by crocheting 2 dtr together as follows: crochet 1 dtr but wait with last yo and pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet 1 dtr and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.

Increasing tips: Inc sts at the bottom of armhole each side as follows: Crochet a chain of ch at the end of the row before the row you need to increase on. Crochet 16-22-22-24-34 ch, turn the piece and crochet back as follows: 1 dtr in the 6th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, 1 dtr in next ch*, repeat from *-* = 7-10-10-11-16 dtr increased for armhole. Continue as before with 1 dtr in each dtr from previous row.

Front piece: The top is crochet from top down. Crochet 36-38-40-44-46 ch using crochet hook size 4 and Cotton Viscose.
Crochet the 1st row as follows: 1 dtr in the 5th ch from the hook, 1 dtr in each of the next 14-15-16-18-19 ch, 3 dtr in next ch, 1 dtr in each of the remaining 16-17-18-20-21 ch = 35-37-39-43-45 dtr. Insert a marking thread in the middle dtr.
Read all of the following section before continuing.
Crochet dtr’s – read Crochet info.
Sloping effect: At the same time inc mid front to obtain a sloping effect by crocheting 3 dtr in the dtr with the marking thread – continue the increase on every row.
Armhole: At the same time inc for armhole each side on every row by crocheting an extra dtr in the outermost dtr each side a total of 5-5-6-7-7 times (after the last inc, insert a new marking thread in piece and measure piece from this point form now on). Crochet 7-10-10-11-16 new dtr – see Increasing tips above – for armhole. After all inc for armhole there are 71-79-85-95-107 dtr on row. Continue with dtr's as before with increases mid front but now dec at side to keep number of sts constant – see Decreasing tips. At the same time when piece measures approx 7-7-8-8-10 cm (from the new marking thread) dec 1 extra dtr each side on every other row a total of 4 times – see Decreasing tips = 63-71-77-87-99 dtr. When piece measures approx 22-23-23-24-25 cm (the increases at sides are now finished) continue over the 63-71-77-87-99 dtr with 1 dtr in each dtr, i.e. discontinue increases mid front and decreases at sides. When piece measures approx 38-39-39-40-41 cm cut the thread – piece measures approx 48-49-51-53-54 cm where widest.

Back piece: Crochet as front piece.

Assembly: Sew side seams.
Crochet border: Crochet a border round neckline on front and back pieces using crochet hook size 6 and Vienna as follows: 1 sl st in first dtr, 1 ch, 1 dc in between 1st and 2nd dtr, *1 ch, 1 dc between the next 2 dtr*, repeat from *-* and finish with a sl st in last dtr on row.

Shoulder straps: Crochet 1 sl st at the top on the right side of back piece, crochet a chain of ch approx 12-14-14-14-16 cm long (or desired length, try on the top), attach with 1 sl st at the top on the right side of front piece. Crochet another chain (to make the strap double) and attach with a sl st on back piece. Repeat on left side.
