Crochet tension; 20 tr/dc in width and 13 rows pattern in height using hook size 3.5 mm and Safran = 10 x 10 cm
Pattern: 1st row (= RS): Crochet 1 tr in each st, finish row with 1 ch to turn with. 2nd row: Crochet 1 dc in each st, finish row with 3 ch to turn with.
Repeat 1st and 2nd rows.

Cast off at beginning of row as follows: Crochet sl st at over number of sts to be cast off.
Cast off at end of row as follows: Crochet until number of sts left = number of sts to be cast off, turn piece.
Fan pattern; Crochet in first st: 1 tr, 1 picot (= 3 ch, 1 dc in first ch), 1 tr, 1 picot and 1 tr, * skip 2 sts, 1 sl st in next st, skip 2 sts (in loops at neck and armhole skip 3 sts to ensure neat edge), crochet in next st: 1 tr, 1 picot, 1 tr, 1 picot, 1 tr *, repeat from *-*.

Back piece: Crochet 93-103-118-133 ch (incl 1 ch to turn with) on crochet hook size 3.5 mm. 1st row as follows: 1 dc in 2nd ch from crochet hook, 1 dc in next ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* until end of row = 74-82-94-106 dc. Continue with Pattern – see explanation above, until complete measurement. When piece measures 5-5-6-6 cm dec by skipping over second sts from edge on each side on every 3rd row 3 times in total = 68-76-88-100 sts. When piece measures 15-16-17-18 cm inc 1 st on each side by crocheting 2 sts in second sts from edge on each side on every other row 8-8-7-6 times on total = 84-92-102-112 sts. When piece measures 32-33-34-35 cm cast off for armhole on each side on each row – see Cast off tips: 3 sts 1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 1-2-2-4 times and 1 st 2-3-3-3 times = 70-72-76-78 sts. When piece measures 47-49-51-53 cm continue crocheting over 18-19-20-21 sts on one side for shoulder. Continuing cast off at neckline on every row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 14-15-16-17 sts left in shoulder. Cut thread when piece measures 50-52-54-56 cm. Crochet other shoulder similarly.

Right front piece: Crochet 46-51-58-66 ch (incl 1 ch to turn with) on crochet hook size 3.5 mm. 1st row as follows: 1 dc in 2nd ch from crochet hook, 1 dc in each of next 4-4-6-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* til end of row = 37-41-47-53 dc. Now crochet Pattern like on back piece. Dec and inc in side like back piece = 42-46-51-56 sts, when piece measures 30-31-32-33 cm cast off for neckline.

I cannot figure out how many to chain in the beginning does not state in the instructions making a small medium. Is this the neck we are starting on?

DROPS Design 18.04.2019 kl. 16:13:

Hello Momfromaz. The top is worked bottom up, in separate pieces sewn at the end. You start with the back piece and for size S you begin with 93 ch sts. Happy crocheting!

Désolé, je me suis trompée de modèle pour mon commentaire. Celui-ci concerne le modèle "Aphrodite".

Veronique 15.04.2019 - 07:01:

Modèle beaucoup trop ouvert aux emmanchures. dommage le modèle est magnifique mais difficile à porter. J'ai tout défait mon ouvrage

Pam 20.05.2018 - 05:02:

I really want to make this top for my upcoming beach vacation, but I need it in a size 2x-3x. Could you help me with the number of additional chains/stitches I would need? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 10:10:

Dear Pam, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. Please contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Hej I forhold til opskrift 99-11, er der nogen vejledning til hvor stor de forskellige størrelser er? Bruger normalt M men er i tvivl om toppen er stor eller lille i størrelsen. Venligst Christina

DROPS Design 18.08.2017 kl. 06:55:

Hei Christina. Om du ser nederst på oppskriften finner du en målskisse. Mål deg frem på deg selv og finn den størrelsen som vil passe deg best. God Fornøyelse!

Lou 06.07.2017 - 13:30:

Bonjour, pour le devant taille M : "Répéter des augmentations 4-4-4-3-3 fois tous les 2-2-2-3-3 rangs" Cela veut dire qu'on doit augmenter sur 4 rangs puis faire 2 rangs sans augmentations etc ? "augmenter à l’intérieur de chaque marqueur, de sorte que le nombre de m entre les marqueurs va augmenter." Cela signifie-t-il de passer l'augmentation entre les 2 brides du dessous (et non dans une maille en forme de "V") ? Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 06.07.2017 kl. 16:12:

Bonjour Lou, sauf erreur de ma part, je n'ai pas trouvé cette expression dans ce modèle, pouvez-vous m'aider? Si vous devez augmenter 4 fois tous les 2 rangs: crochetez 1 rang sans augmentation, 1 rang avec augmentation et répétez ces 2 rangs 3 fois au total. Bon crochet!

Dollygk 07.06.2016 - 09:13:

In your English instructions you do not say how many to ch for the first row, I did look at the British pattern and found how many, you might correct the English!!! My sister sent me this link to make the top for her and it's a very pretty pattern!! Thank you, Dolly

DROPS Design 07.06.2016 kl. 13:46:

Dear Mrs Dollygk, just checked both English patterns and didn't find any difference except the fan pattern located in 2 different places - could you please detail your feedback so that pattern can be checked? Thank you!

Jaana Kotka 30.04.2016 - 01:30:

Det kan ikke være riktig når det står at du skal felle og øke i hver side....nå har jeg kludra med to topper....og jeg tror nå at det bare skal økes/felles i siden...altså ikke mot midten på framstykkene (selv om jeg har regnet om og heklet den i et stykke). Man får jo ikke rett kant langs midten....blir som et timeglass der de går over hverandre øverst før hals..jeg som har feiltolket og må rekke opp masse:)

Jaana Kotka 27.04.2016 - 16:31:

Må spørre om det viftemønsteret også jeg. Overgang stav, picot, stav. Og er dette i ei maske?

DROPS Design 06.05.2016 kl. 12:13:

Hej Jaana, Alt dette er i én maske: 1 st, 1 picot, 1 st, 1 picot, 1 st ! God fornøjelse!

Jaana Kotka 26.04.2016 - 00:50:

NÅ når jeg regner med felling til ermer blir det vel mer rett, selv om jeg da ender opp med 40
