Dec as follows after 2 edge sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso.
Dec as follows before 2 edge sts: K2 tog.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Back and front piece:
The dress is knitted round on circular needle from bottom edge up. Cast on 216-252-288-324 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with pink. Knit 2 rounds in garter sts and continue in M.1.
When piece measures 8-10-13-17 cm begin the dec. Dec 12-14-16-18 sts per round, i.e. dec 2 sts on every 2nd repeat across – see arrows in diagram. This means the size of the zig-zags in the pattern will decrease as you go along.
Dec as follows:
When piece measures 8-10-13-17 cm knit first 1 round with dec = 204-238-272-306 sts, continue in M.2.
When piece measures 10-14-17-21 cm knit second round with dec = 192-224-256-288 sts, continue in M.3.

When piece measures 19-27-34-38 cm knit M.8 (= row with holes), at the same time on the last round of M.8 dec 2 sts evenly = 142-166-190-214 sts. Now carry on measuring piece from the first round of M.8. Divide the piece mid back and finish the dress back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 2 new sts each side = 146-170-194-218 sts. Knit next row as follows form the RS: 5 edge sts in garter sts, M.9A (= 8 sts), M.9B over 120-144-168-192 sts, M.9C (= 8 sts) and 5 edge sts in garter sts. Continue in pattern whilst making buttonholes on right edge – see explanation above. When piece measures 3 cm (from 1st round of M.8) knit next row as follows from the RS: 5 edge sts in garter sts, 28-34-40-46 sts of M.9, 10 sts in garter sts, 60-72-84-96 sts of M.9, 10 sts in garter sts, 28-34-40-46 sts of M.9, 5 edge sts in garter sts.

After the dec for armhole continue with 2 sts in garter sts + 1 st in stocking st each side (i.e. 1 st in stocking sts along armhole). When piece measures approx 9-10-10-11 cm – adjust after 1 full repeat of M.9 – knit 4 rows with garter sts over the middle 22-22-28-34 sts (M.9 over remaining sts). Now cast off the middle 18-18-24-30 sts for neck and dec 1 st towards neckline on every other row a total of 6 times – see Dec Tips = 12-15-18-21 sts left on each shoulder. Continue in M.9 with 2 sts in garter sts + 1 st in stocking st towards the neckline. When piece measures approx 14-15-16-17 cm (= 33-42-50-55 cm full length) cast off remaining sts – adjust after a full pattern repeat.

Left back piece: = 35-41-47-53 sts. Continue in M.9 with 2 sts in garter sts towards armhole and 5 edge sts in garter sts towards mid back. At the same time dec for armhole as described for front piece = 30-33-39-45 sts. When piece measures approx 12-13-14-15 cm – adjust after a full pattern repeat – knit 4 rows with garter sts over 18-18-21-24 sts towards mid back.

The last 3 rows in diagram m9 does not knit up nice. On ws you would normally knit pearl over pearl and knit over knit. I have now given up and are using another pattern, but thought it would be nice to know where I'm going wrong. Have used plenty of your patterns before with no problems. As I'm danish I even checked the danish version still no joy. Thanks

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 13:11:

Dear Kirsten, the diagram should work nicely, you first work M.9A, then repeat M.9B and finish with M.9C. When some rows are worked at the transition with 2 diagrams, ex. row 5 and 7, work the last 2 sts/last st in M.9A/M.9B with the first 2 sts/first st in M.9B/M.9C. Happy knitting!

Lisbeth Wilson 25.10.2018 - 22:13:

Forstår ikke forklaringen vedrørende 1 felling. Iflg diagrammet ska det fremdeles være 6 masker før midtmasken etter å ha felt 3 masker rett sammen? Ser av kommentarene at det er feil i diagrammet, men forstår ikke hvordan det skal løses

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 09:19:

Hei Liesbeth. Det er ikke noe feil i diagrammet. Du strikker 3 masker sammen, og har da felt 1 maske, fordi du også lager 1 kast per felling på samme omgang (slik du har gjort i de tidligere omgangene). Du kan se at for hver felling blir diagrammet 1 maske mindre i hver side, og fellingene flytter seg 1 hakk nærmere midten. God fornøyelse.

Irmelin 28.05.2018 - 16:53:

Hei. På venstre bakstykke står det: «Når arbeidet måler ca 12 cm - avpass etter 1 hel rapport - strikkes det riller over 18 m mot midt bak.» Hva gjør jeg med de resterende 12 maskene? Fortsette med M.9?

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 11:31:

Hei Irmelin, Ja, du fortsetter med M.9 over de resterende maskene. God fornøyelse!

Inga Ohlsson 24.01.2018 - 21:42:

I mönstret Sweet Rosie , Drops Baby 11-4 i mönstret för strumpor är de återstående maskorna felaktigt angivna, i st. 6/8 mån.står det 14 m. men det blir endast 6 maskor kvar som man drar tråden genom.

Kristine 26.01.2017 - 13:42:

Hei. I felling 1 etter M1 (i mønster-rubrikkene) står den ene fellingen som 3 r sm. Men dette vises over "to masker" i rutemønsteret. Hvis man strikker 3 r sm fører vel dette til felling av to masker på ett sted? Og at det blir for få masker igjen etter mønsteret? Er det noe jeg ikke forstår her?

DROPS Design 07.02.2017 kl. 14:52:

Hej Kristine. Nej, du tager 6 m ind (ved at strikke sammen), men du laver ogsaa 4x slaa om. Saa du mindsker 2 m i alt, som ogsaa angives i diagrammet.

Catherine 30.03.2016 - 16:27:

Bonjour. Je ne comprends pas l explication de la bordure crochet ,ce qui me gêne c est " crocheter dans les 2 m a partir du bord . MERCI

DROPS Design 30.03.2016 kl. 19:13:

Bonjour Catherine, l'explication de la bordure a été légèrement modifiée, vous devez la crocheter autour des 2 m point mousse du bord autour des emmanchures et de l'encolure. Bon crochet!

Catherine 23.02.2016 - 15:47:

Bonjour, a 8 cm il faut diminuer. Je ne comprends pas ces diminutions ...3m ens a l end , 2m ens, 6m end , 1 jetée ,1m end ,1 jetée,6 m end , 1 surjet simple et glisser 1 m a l end , 2 m ens passer la m glisser par dessus . (Cela me fait enlever 4 m pour 1 motif cela fait beaucoup ??.Merci

DROPS Design 23.02.2016 kl. 17:02:

Bonjour Catherine, diminuez comme indiqué aux rangs avec la flèche, soit pour 1. tricotez le 1er motif puis après le surjet simple de la 1ère moitié du motif, tricotez: 1 m end, 3 m ens à l'end, continuez le diagramme et terminez par 1 surjet double. Répétez ces 36 m (en taille 1, on diminue ainsi 12 m soit 6 fois 2 m, et il reste 204 m). Bon tricot!

Jennifer 20.12.2015 - 13:03:

I've made this pattern for my niece. Love it. It would be great to have it on adult size too!

Annette Green 27.01.2015 - 21:45:
