The dress is knitted back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 189-199-209-219 sts (incl 4 edge sts each side = mid front, knitted in garter sts throughout) on needle size 3 mm. Knit M.1 and continue in M.2. When piece measures 22-31-33-35 cm 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 socking sts – edge sts in garter sts and remember buttonholes on right front band, see above. When piece measures 25-34-37-40 cm insert 2 marking threads, 28-33-37-40 sts in from each side = 54-64-70-78 sts between marking threads = back piece. Continue with 4 rows in garter st over 6 sts each side of both marking threads (the remaining sts in stocking sts) = 12 garter sts each side. On next row cast 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 stocking sts with 4 sts in garter sts towards mid front and towards armhole. Cast off for armhole at side on every other row: 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 knit 4 rows in garter sts over 12-13-14-15 sts mid front (remaining sts in stocking sts). On next row cast off 8-9-10-11 sts mid front for neck, continue with 4 sts in garter sts towards mid front and dec to shape the neckline on every other row: 1 st 4 times = 12-16-19-21 sts left on shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 37-47-51-55 cm.
Right front piece: Like left front piece, but mirrored. Remember buttonholes on front band.
Back piece: = 50-60-66-74 sts. Cast off for armhole each side as described for front piece = 45-56-62-70 sts. When piece measures 35-45-49-53 cm knit 4 rows garter sts over the middle 30-32-32-36 sts (remaining sts in stocking sts). On next row cast off the middle 22-24-24-28 sts for neck = 12-16-19-21 sts left on each shoulder. Continue with 4 sts in garter sts each side until piece measures 37-47-51-55 cm and cast off.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams and sew on buttons.


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

Cast on 90-100 sts on small circular needle size 3 mm. Knit 4 rows garter sts and continue in M.2. Knit 5-6 vertical repeats of M.2 and now insert a marking thread in the first st in each horizontal repeat = 9-10 marking threads. 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 MT as if to knit, knit tog st with MT 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 stocking 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.

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.

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!

Francesca Sarnataro 24.04.2018 - 18:56:

Buonasera, sto eseguendo il cappellino. quando è il momento delle diminuzioni non mi è chiaro come posso passare la prima maglia prima della maglia con marcapunto. all'inizio del giro non ho maglie da poter passare in quanto la prima maglia è la prima magliadel motivo.grazie

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 21:19:

Buonasera Francesca. Può passare l'ultima maglia del giro precedente e poi lavorare insieme a diritto le prime due maglie del giro. Buon lavoro!

Marianne Mybrand 25.03.2018 - 20:27:

Hej. Kan man sticka den här klänningen i Drops Flora? Blir den i samma stl?

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 13:54:

Jo, Flora har samma stickfasthet så det går bra.

Esther Van Der Voorn 01.10.2017 - 10:50:

I am having difficulty reading the chart. Most of the chart uses blank squares indicating "knit", which produces garter stitch. However in the photo, the lace pattern is on a background of stocking stitch. Have I missed something? I am using English UK.

DROPS Design 01.10.2017 kl. 12:23:

Hi Esther, The chart shows all the rows from the right side, so when you work back you are purling to produce stocking stitch (will show knit from right side as in chart). Hope this helps and happy knitting!
