After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 there are 114-122-138-150-170-186 sts on needle. P 1 row from WS. Change to circular needle size 4 mm.

I looove this! Please can you let me know if you have a CROCHET pattern of it also? Thank you 💝

DROPS Design 13.08.2019 kl. 08:08:

Dear KK, you'll find our crocheted dresses here and our crocheted tunics there. Happy crocheting!

Savanah 10.11.2018 - 18:13:

I don't understand the last instruction on the Decreasing Tip: "K YO into back of loop on next row." What loop does this refer to?

DROPS Design 11.11.2018 kl. 22:32:

Dear Savanah, that means you have to knit the YOs into back part of it (behind the needle), so there will be not so big hole in the garment. Happy knitting!

Emma 02.07.2014 - 12:53:

I'm just starting knitting, I'll work my way to this, but where abouts do you see how many balls you need to buy for each size? Thank you.

DROPS Design 02.07.2014 kl. 18:41:

Dear Emma, you will find at the right side of the picture under tab "Materials" the total weight of yarn required, ie for size S eg, you need 400 g Bomull-Lin / 50 g a ball = 8 balls. Happy knitting!

Mary Jane Coker 28.01.2013 - 03:51:

On the M1...do you knit all 3 rows...or do you purl row 2?

DROPS Design 28.01.2013 kl. 10:45:

Dear Mrs Mary Jane, M1 is worked back and forth on needle, r1 from RS = K, r2 from WS = P. Happy knitting!

Charlotte 22.03.2012 - 16:06:

Jeg har købt garn til denne og tænker på om det ændrer noget, hvis jeg strikker den rundt? Vil den da dreje sig?

DROPS Design 28.03.2012 kl. 14:25:

Hej, Normalt betyder det ikke noget om du vælger at strikke rundt istedet for frem og tilbage. Nogle gange vurderer Design at tøjet vil få bedre formstabilitet med sidesømme, men det er naturligvis en smags sag. God fornøjelse!

Beverly 30.04.2011 - 14:56:

Thank you!

DROPS Design 29.04.2011 - 21:23:

The name of the chart is M.1. The chart shows you one repeat. In first row of chart you K tog every 6th and 7th st on row. Second row no dec, third row K tog every 2nd and 3rd st on row.

Beverly 29.04.2011 - 21:08:

What does M.1 mean? Chart does NOT help. Is it an increase, a decrease, something else? Help!

Henna 29.11.2010 - 22:29:

I can't understand that M.1 pattern, could someone clarify that? :)

Orla Treacy 06.05.2010 - 18:07:

This does not really help. I dont understand the pattern. wd u be able to go through the first few stitches on the needle. I cannot go to the shop as i purchased the wool on the internet. thank you , Orla
