The dress is knitted back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 189-199-209-219 sts (includes 4 edge sts each side = mid front, knitted in garter sts throughout) on needle size 3 mm / US 2½.
Knit M.1 and continue in M.2. When piece measures 22-31-33-35 cm / 8 3/4"-12 1/4"-13"-13 3/4" knit M.3, at the same time dec 79-69-65-61 sts evenly on the first row (do not dec over edge sts each side) = 110-130-144-158 sts. After M.3 finish the piece in stockinette – edge sts in garter sts and remember buttonholes on right front band, see above. When piece measures 25-34-37-40 cm / 9 3/4"-13 3/8"-14½"-15 3/4" insert 2 markers, 28-33-37-40 sts in from each side = 54-64-70-78 sts between markers = back piece. Continue with 4 rows in garter st over 6 sts each side of both markers (the remaining sts in stockinette sts) = 12 garter sts each side.
On next row bind off the middle 4 of these 12 sts for armhole and complete each piece separately.

Left front piece:
= 26-31-35-38 sts. Continue in stockinette sts with 4 sts in garter sts towards front edge and towards armhole. Bind off for armhole at side on beg of every row from side: 1 st 2-2-2-2 times = 24-29-33-36 sts (continue with 4 sts in garter sts towards armhole).
When piece measures 31-41-44-48 cm / 12 1/4"-16 1/8"-17 1/4"-19" knit 4 rows with garter sts over 12-13-14-15 sts toward front edge (remaining sts in stockinette sts).
On next row bind off 8-9-10-11 sts at front for neck, continue with 4 sts in garter sts towards front edge and bind off to shape the neckline in beg of every row from front: 1 st 4 times = 12-16-19-21 sts left on shoulder.
Bind off when piece measures 37-47-51-55 cm / 14½"-18"-20"-21 5/8".

Right front piece:
Like left front piece, but mirrored. Remember buttonholes on front band.

Back piece:
= 50-60-66-74 sts. Bind off for armhole each side as described for front piece = 45-56-62-70 sts. When piece measures 35-45-49-53 cm / 13 3/4"-17 3/4"-19 1/4"-21" knit 4 rows garter sts over the middle 30-32-32-36 sts (remaining sts in stockinette sts).
On next row bind off the middle 22-24-24-28 sts for neck = 12-16-19-21 sts left on each shoulder. Work each shoulder separate and continue with 4 sts in garter sts each side until piece measures 37-47-51-55 cm / 14½"-18"-20"-21 5/8" and then bind off.

Sew shoulder seams and sew on buttons.


Size: 6/12 months – 2/4 years
To fit head circumference: 42-46 cm / 16½"-18"

Cast on 90-100 sts on short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2½.
Knit 4 rows garter sts and continue in M.2. Knit 5-6 vertical repeats of M.2 and now insert a marker in the first st in each horizontal repeat = 9-10 markers. Knit 1 more vertical repeat of M.2 and dec on the rows marked with an arrow in the diagram.
Dec as follows: slip the st before the st with marker as if to knit, knit tog st with marker and the next st, psso. Repeat this dec in all horizontal repeats by the 3 arrows in diagram, i.e. a total dec of 54-60 sts = 36-40 sts left on needle. After the last round of M.2 knit 1 round in stockinette sts, at the same time knitting all sts tog 2 by 2 = 18-20 sts left. Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts. Sew tight.

Perdue avec le motif ... je n’arrve Pas à reproduire le motif à partir du deuxième rang M2... Serait-il possible d’avoir les expiations s plus claire .. je travaille sur le modèle 12/18 Merci

DROPS Design 03.06.2019 kl. 10:58:

Bonjour Mme Lagoutte, vous trouverez ici quelques indications complémentaires sur la lecture des diagrammes -vous pouvez mettre un marqueur entre chaque diagramme à répéter en largeur, il est ainsi plus facile de s'y retrouver. Bon tricot!

Gisele 20.04.2019 - 06:46:

How do you bind off the stitches (10 stitches) at front for neck?

DROPS Design 21.04.2019 kl. 22:36:

Dear Gisele, here you can see most common way od binding ogg stitches: Happy knitting!

Linda Tingleff 05.04.2019 - 11:38:

Hej. Ska børja på klænningen. Efter jag har lagt upp alla maskerna skal jag tillbaka før att komma på rætsidan och till varv 1 som mønstret m1 børjar på. Skall detta varv vara avigt eller rætt. Det står det inte något om i mønstret. Vh Linda

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 14:34:

Hej Linda, du kan sticka 1:a varvet rät om du vill ha andra sidan som rätsida :)

Amy Kaufman 23.03.2019 - 01:59:

The patterns says to cast on 189 stitches. There are 4 stitches on each end and the pattern is 10 stitches repeating 18 times. That is 188 stitches. one set of stitches for the pattern has 11 stitches. Why the extra stitch? I am not sure what to do with the 11th stitch. All sizes have that extra stitch.

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 07:54:

Hi Amy! Sometimes the stitch count is not divisible with full/whole repeats of the diagram in width. In this case you will work 18 full repeats of M.1/M.2/M.3 (=180 stitches), and then work the first stitch in the diagram over the remaining stitch. The pattern will be symmetrical in both sides of dress. Happy knitting!

Salve, quanto filato serve per il cappellino taglia 12 mesi?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 09:14:

Buongiorno Olivia. Per la taglia 12 mesi sono necessari 150 gr di filato. Buon lavoro!

Kristina Christensen 24.05.2018 - 18:01:

Lige 2 spørgsmål : Med 209 masker kan jeg ikke helt få det til at gå op når mønstret er på 10 masker + de 8 kantmasker. Hvad gør jeg forkert? Når mønstret ses fra retsiden, hvad strikket jeg så på vrangsiden når jeg strikker tilbage? På forhånd mange tak

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 14:10:

Hej Kristina, jo du strikker 20 hele rapporter og slutter med første maske i diagrammet, inden for kantmaskerne, da vil mønsteret blive ens i hver side mod midt foran. God fornøjelse!

Luciana 02.05.2018 - 20:29:

Buonasera, sto lavorando il vestito con i ferri dritti, la mia domanda è se il diagramma mi dice che devo lavorare una maglia al dritto ed una al rovescio,dopo aver fatto il primo ferro M2 ,rigiro il lavoro e non mi corrispondono dritto su dritto rovescio su rovescio. Spero di essere riuscita a farmi capire, non è facile......comunque grazie

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 22:23:

Buonasera Luciana. Il diagramma M2 è lavorato a maglia rasata. Il primo ferro è sul rovescio del lavoro ed è lavorato a rovescio, il secondo , sul diritto del lavoro, è lavorato a diritto con le gettate e la maglia passata e accavallata. Buon lavoro!

Mona Rylander 01.05.2018 - 14:08:

Lägg upp 209 m. Det är 10m på varje mönster rapport och 4 m på kanterna. Jag får det till 208 m. Tänker jag rätt/fel??

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 12:05:

Hej Mona, det stämmer, men för att få kanten ens i båda sidorna, stickar du 1:a maskan i diagrammet igen innan de sista kantmaskorna. Lycka till :)

Luciana 01.05.2018 - 12:30:

Buongiorno, il vestito mi piace moltissimo è possibile lavorarlo con i ferri classici? Grazie

DROPS Design 01.05.2018 kl. 19:05:

Buonasera Luciana, il vestito è lavorato in piano, per cui può lavorarlo con i ferri dritti. Buon lavoro!
