Crochet gauge: 16 dc x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4’’ x 4’’].

Crochet info: Replace the first dc on each round with 3 ch. Replace first sc on round with 1 ch. Finish each round with 1 sl st in first dc/sc/ch.

Binding off tip (apply to bikini top):
Bind off as follows at beg of row: crochet sl sts on the number of dc to be bound off.
Bind off as follows at the end of row: Turn piece when number of dc to be bound off are left on row.

Increasing tip (apply to skirt): Inc by crocheting 2 dc in 1 dc.

Bikini top:
Right cup: A-cup: crochet round 1 to 10, B cup: crochet round 1-12, C cup: crochet round 1-14.

Right cup: Crochet 4 ch with crochet hook size 4 mm [G/6] and form a ring with a sl st in 1st ch. Continue as follows:
Round 1: 5 sc in ring
Round 2: 2 dc in each sc = 10 dc
Round 3: 2 dc in each dc = 20 dc
Round 4: *4 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat from *-* = 10 ch-loops
Round 5: 4 dc in each ch-loop = 40 dc
Round 6: *3 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat from *-* = 20 ch-loops
Round 7: 3 dc in each of the first 2 ch-loops, *2 dc in next ch-loop, 3 dc in each of the next 2 ch-loops*, repeat from *-* = 54 dc
Round 8: *3 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 3 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 3 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat from *-* and finish round with 3 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 3 ch, skip 2 dc and 1 sl st = 20 ch-loops
Round 9: 3 dc in first ch-loop, *4 dc in next ch-loop, 3 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* and finish round with 4 dc in the last ch-loop = 70 dc
Round 10: *3 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, 3 ch, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat from *-* = 20 ch-loops.
(Cup size A finishes here)
Round 11: 4 dc in each ch-loop = 80 dc
Round 12: 4 ch, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat from *-* = 20 ch-loops
(Cup size B finishes here)
Round 13: Like round 11 = 80 dc
Round 14: Like round 12 = 20 ch-loops
(Cup size C finishes here)

Now crochet shoulder/neck strap. Continue from last round on cup and crochet back and forth.
Row 1: 3 dc in first ch-loop, 1 dc in first sc, *3 dc in next ch-loop, 1 dc in next sc*, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times = 12 dc. Turn piece.
Row 2: 1 dc in each dc, but bind off 2 dc each side – see Binding off tip = 8 dc. Turn piece
Row 3: 1 dc in each dc, but bind off 2 dc each side = 4 dc. Turn piece
Row 4: 1 dc in each dc, and continue until strap measures approx 28 cm [11’’], or required length. Cut the thread and sew.

Hei;)hvorfor er det fargeforskjell på den nederste delen av skjørtet?er det synsbedrag?

DROPS Design 03.07.2018 kl. 10:34:

Hej, ja det er samme mønster hele vejen ned til kanten, men det kan have noget med at gøre at du tager en del masker ud på det nederste stykke og da vil det ikke sidde så tæt på kroppen. God fornøjelse!

Chris 27.09.2017 - 00:18:

There seems to be a glitch in round 7 in the directions, if I do three dc in each loop, then I have space for the 20 looks for round 8. Doing the 54 stitches makes all the numbers afterwards incorrect. Should I change round 7 to have more stitches?

DROPS Design 27.09.2017 kl. 09:27:

Dear Chris, on round 7 work: 3 dc in each of the first 2 ch-spaces (= 6 dc), then work: *2 dc in the next ch-space, 3 dc in each of the next 2 ch-spaces (= 2 + 3 + 3 dc) repeat to the end of round ie a total of 6 times, you will have: 6 dc + 8 dc x 6 = 54 dc. Happy crocheting!

Matthew Pyle 13.07.2017 - 09:11:

I tried many times to make this particular top, but each attempt produced a piece which was far too large, and had a puffy protrusion at the center of each cup. Nevertheless, I was enamored with the potential result so I tried it yet again. This time I substited the beginning chains with a magic circle, skipped the 5 sc in the first row, and began with the 10 dc in row 2. I also used a 3.25mm hook with worsted weight cotton yarn which corrected the size issue.

Alisha 07.04.2017 - 05:13:

When it says to bind off on the shoulder/back strap, am I fastening it off or what how do I do that? Do I just put slip stitches in the indicated stitches, like for row 2 1 dc in each dc but bind off 2 dc on each side leaving 8dc? So out of the 12 stitches that would be there 4 of them should be sl sts and the middle 8 being dc?

DROPS Design 07.04.2017 kl. 08:42:

Dear Alisha, you will dec as explained under "Binding off tip", ie as in the video below: 2 sl st at the beg of row, and crochet until 2 dc remain of row and turn. Happy crocheting!

Corrie Klut 30.03.2017 - 10:22:

Op de foto van het rokje lijkt het of er steeds een losse tussen de stokjes van het bovenste tweederde deel zit, de onderkant lijkt wel vaster gehaakt. Wat maakt dit verschil?

DROPS Design 30.03.2017 kl. 11:41:

Hoi Corrie. Ik denk dat het simpelweg is dat de rok strakker zit aan de bovenkant dan aan de onderkant - en de steken dan anders eruitziet daar.

Francine 06.01.2017 - 21:25:

Pour la majorité des patrons au crochets qu'il faut tourner en rond comme une jupe il ne faut pas tourner à la fin du rang vous attacher avec la première maille du rang et vous revenez sur vos pas si vous tourner votre modèle ne sera pas droit depuis que j'ai changer ma façon de faire je n'ai plus aucun problème avec mes créations

Wally 16.05.2014 - 16:13:

Hallo nochmal, womit soll der Knopf geschlossen werden. Macht man da noch eine Schlaufe?

DROPS Design 16.05.2014 kl. 22:08:

Die Knöpfe werden einfach durch die Stäbchen hindurch geschlossen. So bleibt der Bikini in der Größe etwas variabler.

Wally 15.05.2014 - 16:39:

Hallo, ich verstehe zwei saxhen nicht. Könnt ihr mir helfen? 1. Träger 2. R. Sollen in jedes Stäbchen 2 Stäbchen gehäckelt werden( abzüglich Rand) das ergibt bei mir 16 und nicht 8 Stäbchen 2. Beim zusammennähen des Körbchens, vier Stäbchen in den LM Bogen und dann 5 Reiehn mit je vier Stäbchen, ist das nicht zu lang? Wo liegt mein denkfehler Danke Gruß Wally

DROPS Design 15.05.2014 kl. 17:06:

Zur 1. Frage: Die Angabe in der Anleitung war leider fehlerhaft, Sie müssen 1 Stb in jedes Stb häkeln, das wurde nun behoben. Zur 2. Frage: Sie können das Verbindungsstück ja anpassen und so viele R häkeln, wie zu Ihren Maßen passen, oder es ggf an einem gut sitzenden Bikinioberteil ausmessen. Viel Spaß am Strand mit diesem schönen Set!

Cosa significa lavorare ad uncinetto davanti e dietro

DROPS Design 03.06.2013 kl. 23:22:

Buon giorno. Nel testo viene indicato, per la spallina, di lavorare avanti e indietro. Non si lavora quindi più in tondo, ma da destra verso sinistra e poi si gira il lavoro. Se però non era questa la sua domanda, se per cortesia, ci può indicare il punto esatto della spiegazione che non le è chiaro. Grazie e buon lavoro!
