CHRISTENING GOWN:
Dress: Knitted back and forth on circular needle from mid back. Loosely cast on 378-412 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm.
Knit M.1 (1st row = RS) but knit 2 edge sts each side in garter sts until finished measurements.
After M.1 knit 1 row stocking sts and continue with 2 pin tucks – see explanation above.
Now work the 4 first rows of M.2 whilst dec 11-13 sts evenly on row (knit sts not fitting into row of holes in stocking sts). 367-399 sts.
Knit the next 9 rows of M.2 as follows: 2 edge sts in garter sts, *1 repeat with holes, 3 repeats without holes (= 24 sts in stocking sts)*, repeat from *-* until there are 13 sts left. Knit these as follows: 1 repeat with holes, 3 sts in stocking sts and 2 edge sts in garter sts (in the section with 24 sts without holes you may add the names of the children christened in the gown). Now knit the last 4 rows of M.2 over all sts (knit sts not fitting into row of holes in stocking sts). Continue in leaf pattern – see explanation above - at the same time dec 18-20 sts on the first row = 349-379 sts. After the leaf pattern knit M2 with 2 edge sts each side in garter sts, at the same time dec 6-4 sts evenly = 343-375 sts. Knit 1 row in stocking sts, at the same time dec 18-20 sts evenly = 325-355 sts. Now knit 2 pin tucks and 1 row in stocking sts, at the same time dec 21-31 sts evenly = 304-324 sts.

Knit 2 rows in stocking sts (1st row = RS), at the same time dec 18-14 sts evenly on last row = 136-150 sts. Now knit 4 pin tucks and 1 row in stocking sts. Knit next row as follows from WS: K 38-42, P 60-66, K 38-42. Cast off 36-40 sts each side on next row. Piece now measures approx 68-77 cm.

Front piece: = 64-70 sts. Read all of the following section before knitting it!
Knit stocking sts with M.5 over the four middle sts. At the same time dec for armhole each side on every other row a total of 10 times – see Dec tips above. Alternate between 1st and 2nd dec. After all dec are complete continue knitting holes on every 4th row (from RS) along the armhole as follows:
After 2 sts in garter sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso, yo.
Before 2 sts in garter sts: yo, K2 tog.
Neckline: At the same time when piece measures approx 4 cm from where the front piece starts (adjust to after 3 or 4 holes in M.5) cast off the middle 2 sts for neck – cast off from the RS in P sts. Put sts on left side (when worn) on a thread.

After all dec for armhole and neckline are complete = 10-11 sts left on shoulder (= 2 sts in garter sts, 6-7 sts in stocking sts, 2 sts in garter sts). Continue over these 11 sts (= strap) and continue knitting holes on every 4th row (from RS) as described for armhole. Cast off when piece measures approx 28-32 cm from where the front piece starts.

Left side: Put sts from thread back on needle and knit as right side.

Assembly:

Then crochet next row as follows: *1 sl st, 5 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 sl st in next st*, repeat from *-* until you have 3 loops. Sew on 3 buttons along the pin tucks on the left side. Mark the strap where it will have a suitable length for the child and crochet a loop from the right side on each strap by the mark. 1 loop = 1 sl st, 5 ch and 1 sl st in the same st (the remainder of the strap will hang inside the gown). Sew on a button at the upper edge 3-4 cm in from each side mid back.

Silk ribbon: Cut 3 ribbons measuring 170 cm each in each of the upper 3 rows of holes from M.2 (i.e. 2 over and 1 under the leaf pattern). Attach the ends inside the gown. Cut 1 ribbon measuring 50 cm and pull it through the row of holes on each side of the neckline and the straps.

Beste, ik begin nu aan het voorpand van de jurk. De uitleg van het achterpand ontbreekt echter. Mvg Heidi

Deb 09.04.2018 - 02:28:

Ok, I’m about to start the gown. I haven’t started yet and I’m already confused! I don’t see sizes but the first line says cast on 378-412 sets. How do I choose how many stitches to cast on?

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 07:56:

Hi Deb, There are 2 sizes for the Christening gown (top of pattern), 1/3 and 6/9 months. The first set of figures is for the 1/3 months size and the second set of figures is for the 6/9 months size. Happy knitting! Happy

Hei. Synst Knitting for Olive sin. blondelue og blondekjole er påfallende lik starten på dåpskjolen og kysse Drops baby 11-31! Er det lovlig? Desse er blitt veldig populær blant strikkara på Instagram. Med vennleg helsing Frøydis

Lynda 24.02.2018 - 04:24:

Bonjour j ai une question concernant les diagrammes. Quand je tricote en rond dois-je tricoter les rangs envers a l endroit pour donner une apparence de jersey a mon tricot? Je vous remercie pour ce beau patron.

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 07:48:

Bonjour Lynda, tous les rangs/tours sont représentés dans les diagrammes, lisez-les en commençant en bas à droite et de droite à gauche tous les tours quand vous tricotez en rond. Quand vous tricoterez en allers et retours, lisez les rangs sur l'endroit de droite à gauche et ceux sur l'envers de gauche à droite. Bon tricot!

Daguyt Heidi 17.01.2018 - 09:58:

Beste, hoelang moet de rondbreinaald zijn voor het maken van het doopjurkje? Mvg Heidi

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 10:53:

Hoi Daguyt, De onderkant is behoorlijk wijd, dus je kunt wel een naald van 80 cm gebruiken. Bij de smallere gedeeltes kun je een kortere naald gebruiken of de 'magic loop'. Dit is uigelegd in deze video

Birthe Thimm 27.02.2017 - 14:11:

I forklaringen på maskerne er der to, der mangler ift ud/indtagning. Jeg vil gerne høre om i har de rette

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 14:24:

Hej Birthe. Hvad mener du? Kan du sige hvilket symbol du mangler og i hvilket diagram?

Terru 30.07.2016 - 11:56:

Je commence juste et je trouve les explications de ce modèle pour le point b'eT pas très bien expliqué

DROPS Design 01.08.2016 kl. 10:19:

Bonjour Mme Terru, vous pouvez volontiers poser votre question ici, ou bien, pour toute assistance complémentaire, vous adresser à votre magasin DROPS et/ou au forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Sally Feely 21.07.2016 - 19:09:

I am an experienced knitter...but only only 2 straight needles !! I am looking at your baby patterns ...mainly the jackets ... and wonder if the patterns adapt from circular to straight needles. Thank you.

DROPS Design 21.07.2016 kl. 19:58:

Dear Mrs Feely, most of our patterns are worked flat back and forth, like the jackets: circular needle are helpful due to the high number of sts but you can work with straight needles as well. Happy knitting!

Jocelyne 19.07.2016 - 04:21:

Pour le bonnet, je ne comprend pas le patron, j'ai 2 questions: Est-ce que je rabbats les 28-36 m après avoir complété la nervure soit les 6 rangs? Je ne comprend pas comment tricoter le 6e rang de la nervure, il est écrit: * relever le fil sous la m du rang envers sur l'endroit et la placer la boucle sur l'aiguille de droite, 1 m env, passer la boucle relevée par dessus la m envers* Merci de bien prendre le temps de me répondre

DROPS Design 19.07.2016 kl. 10:01:

Bonjour Jocelyne, c'est exact, au rang suivant sur l'endroit après la nervure, rabattez les 28-36 premières m, puis au rang suivant sur l'envers, rabattez les 28-36 premières m = il reste 31 m. La vidéo ci-dessous montre comment réaliser la nervure. Bon tricot!
