Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Replace first dc at beg of row/round with 3 ch. Finish each row with 1 dc in 3rd ch from previous row and finish each round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first tr at beg of round with 4 ch, finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.

Because of the weight of the yarn make all measurements whilst the garment is hanging, otherwise it will be too long when worn.

Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in the same dc. DECREASING TIP:
Crochet 1 dc but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet next dc and when doing the last pull-though pull thread through all 3 sts on hook = 1 dec dc.

Piece crochet back and forth from top down until after the split at the side, then continue in the round. Because of the weight of the yarn crochet the first 3 rows with 1 thread Cotton Viscose and 1 elastic thread to make the skirt sit nicely at the waist.

Ch 186-209-232-258-279-305 LOOSE (includes 3 ch to turn with) with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Cotton Viscose and elastic thread (= 2 threads). Crochet first row as follows: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 3-5-7-5-5-3 ch remain, skip 1 ch and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 2-4-6-4-4-2 ch = 158-178-198-220-238-260 dc.
Now continue back and forth with 1 dc in each dc – See CROCHET INFO! After 3 rows remove the elastic thread and continue with 1 thread Cotton Viscose. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! After a total of 5 rows insert 6 markers in piece as follows: First marker after 14-14-16-20-21-22 dc, then 26-30-33-36-39-43 dc between each marker, = 14-14-17-20-22-23 dc after the last marker at the end of row. On next row inc 1 dc before all markers – See INCREASING TIP! Repeat the inc on every other row a total of 7-7-8-9-10-11 times – NOTE! Inc before and after the markers alternately = 200-220-246-274-298-326 dc. AT THE SAME TIME after a total of 12 rows continue in the round (= after the split) – round beg at the side, see CROCHET INFO! When piece measures 29-31-33-35-37-39 cm / 11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13"-13 3/4"-14½"-15 1/4" – see MEASUREMENT TIP – inc 8-4-10-6-6-10 dc evenly = 208-224-256-280-304-336 dc on round. Now complete piece in fan pattern as follows:

ROUND 1: 1 sc in first dc, * ch 4, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with ch 4 and 1 sl st in first sc = 52-56-64-70-76-84 ch-loops.
ROUND 2: * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in first ch-loop, 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* = 26-28-32-35-38-42 fans.
ROUND 3: * 4 dc + ch 2 + 4 dc in the middle of first fan (i.e. in ch-loop in fan), 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-*.
Repeat round 3 a total of 4 times (piece now measures approx 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19'' and fan pattern measures approx 9 cm / 3½'').

CROCHET NEXT ROUND AS FOLLOWS: * 4 tr + ch 2 + 4 tr in the middle of first fan, 1 tr in next dc *, repeat from *-*.

Repeat this round a total of 5 times, piece measures approx 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm / 19''-19¾''-20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾'' - REMEMBER MEASUREMENT TIP – if you want the skirt slightly longer continue to desired length. Cut and fasten thread.

Crochet buttonhole loops along split on front piece as follows, beg at bottom: 2 sc in first dc, ch 3, skip 1 dc, * crochet 2 sc in each of the next 2 dc, ch 3, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 2 sc in last dc, turn and crochet return row as follows: 1 sc in each sc and 3 sc in each ch-loop.

Crochet 5 rows sc back and forth along split on back piece (on first row crochet 2 sc in each dc = 24 sc), cut thread. Sew on buttons.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hej, Jag skulle vilja ha information om vilken resårtråd ni rekommenderar och vilken mängd. Den jag prövat tar slut alldeles för fort.

Hej Clara. For dette kan du bedst kontakte din DROPS butik. De kan hjaelpe dig med en god traad.

Anna 04.05.2014 - 09:33:

Que quereis decir cuando poneis: 3-5-7-5-5-3 p.de cad., saltar 1 p.de cad. y finalizar con 1 p.a. en cada uno de los últimos 2-4-6-4-4-2 p.de cad.

DROPS Design 08.05.2014 kl. 09:07:

Hola Anna, cuando hay varios números separados por un guión es porque cada uno corresponde a una de las tallas (en el 1er caso sería 3 pts de cadeneta para la talla más pequeña, 5 para la siguiente, 7 para la siguiente...etc), después se deja o salta 1 p. de cadeneta de la fila anterior sin trabajar y después se trabaja 1 p.a. en cada uno de los últimos 2 p.de cadeneta en la talla más pequeña; en cada uno de los 4 últimos si es la sig talla...etc

Que hilo es el hilo elástico para las faldas

DROPS Design 08.05.2014 kl. 09:01:

Hola Anna, el hilo elástico se vende en mercerías y es como una banda elástica pero en forma de hilo, es decir como una goma muy fina

Wat een leuk model en heel goed te combineren met het vestje (n-108)

Hanne Pedersen 07.01.2010 - 12:22:

Hvis man kan lide nr.108 må man have denne fine nederdel

Anita 06.01.2010 - 12:25:

Niet mooi. Het kan aan het materiaal liggen of het is te los gehaakt; kortom niet flatteus.

Emma 28.12.2009 - 10:24:

Très frais, très sympa pour l'été!

Helle Hansen 25.12.2009 - 16:06:

Man skal godt nok have en meget fantastisk figur, hvis denne nederdel kan gøre noget godt for ens figur!

Ela Marquardt 15.12.2009 - 04:19:

Leuk is deze. Ik krijg zin in haken!

Sherry 12.12.2009 - 23:44:

Love, love, love this vest
