Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

Knitting tension: 25 sts x 34 rows on needles size 2.5 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm. Note! The pattern will have more rows per 10 cm.

Garter sts (back and forth on needle): Knit all rows.

Pin tuck: P 1 row from the RS and then 4 rows stocking sts. Knit next row as follows from the WS: *Pick up the upper part of st under the purled row, put loop on right needle, P1, lift the loop over P st to close the loop*, repeat from *-*. Knit 2 rows stocking sts between each pin tuck.

Pattern M.1 – M.6 - M.7: See diagrams. The diagrams show the pattern from the right side. English Translations for the wording in the diagrams are given at the bottom of this pattern, and they are given in the vertical order in which they appear in the diagram.

Cast on 87-104 sts (incl 1 edge st each side, knitted in garter sts throughout) on pointed needles size 2.5 mm.
Knit M.1 until piece measures 10-12 cm. Now knit a pin tuck – see explanation above – at the same for size 6/9 months dec 1 st on first row in pin tuck = 87 -103 sts. Now cast off 28-36 sts each side = 31 sts left (= middle piece on back).
Measure piece from this point onwards! Continue as follows: 1 edge st, M.7A (= 9 sts), M.7B (= 8 sts), M.7C (=12 sts) and 1 edge st.
Cast off when the middle piece measures 11-14 cm.
Sew to side pieces.
Pick up approx 86 to 98 sts (divisible by 4+2 to get an even number of holes for the silk ribbon) along the front edge on needle size 2.5 mm and knit M.6 with 1 edge st each side. Cast off in P sts (seen from the RS).
Cut a silk ribbon measuring approx 80 cm and pull through row of holes.

Can any of your designers write out your lace patterns the old fashioned way? Long hand maybe? These graphs are frustrating. It's too easy to lose one's place. One has to look at the graph and the interpretation of the signs. It takes twice as long. Love this bonnet but the graph tells me to look elsewhere. Pity since I bought Drop Baby Alpaca and silk. Love your yarns just wish there were "long-hand" lace patterns.

Dear Basia, unfortunately we cannot accomondate every wish about pattern writing. Our patterns are available in many languages, and we found the best way to give the pattern to everyone in chart forms. Charts do have their advantages, you can see not only a row 8and what comes right after a stitch), but you can also see the relations of stitches to each other, and how rows should follow one another. It is not that difficult to memorize the explanation of the stitches (after a few repeats the mind remembers almost automatically). If you are still stuck, remember, you can always ask for help in person in the store where you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Crafting!

What is the meaning of m17 or m8, m10 m4 in the chart

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 09:31:

Dear Haneen, those are the number of stitches in the pattern-repeats for teh diagrams. Happy Crafting!

Kyse: jeg har læst spørgsmål og svar i tråden og faldt over et billede med mønster M1 men det er ikke det samme mønster M1 som der vises i ??? Vh Jane

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 15:33:

Hei Jane. Jeg kunne ikke se noe bilde av mønster M.1 i kommentarfeltet. Sikter du kanskje til videoen posted 7 Mai 2015? I så fall er dette kun for å demonstrere hvordan økingene og fellingene utgjevner hverandre i bølgemønsteret. Det er ikke det samme mønster M.1 som i denne oppskriften - men akkurat bølgemønsteret er det samme. God fornøyelse

Jane 10.01.2019 - 07:51:

Kyse: jeg er I tvivl om hvornår i mønsteret jeg skal strikke 1brise . Vh Jane

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 15:28:

Hei Jane. Du strikker M.1 til arbeidet måler 10-12 cm, og så strikker du bise. Så det er lengden på arbeidet og ikke omganger i mønsteret som avgjør hvor den strikkes. Bisen strikkes etter anvisning i oppskriften. God fornøyelse

Solfrid 31.10.2018 - 19:34:

Jeg trenger ikke svar på dette, men har funnet ut at ikke all forklaring til mønster og diagram framkommer når jeg bruker iPad. Er kanskje nyttig for flere å vite. Må se på PC eller telefon hvis du mangler noen forklaringer.

Solfrid 30.10.2018 - 20:05:

Jeg har lastet ned gratisoppskriften og i forklaringen til tegnene i diagrammet er det flere tomme felt. Det gjør det vanskelig å forstå diagrammet. Har dere lagt en rettelse til dette noe sted?

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 08:11:

Hei Solfrid, De tomme ruten i diagrammene er strikket rett fra retten og vrangt fra vrangen. God fornøyelse!

Solfrid 21.10.2018 - 21:07:

Kyse: Jeg forstår ikke hva det betyr å strikke rille over 1 maske. Skal den alltid strikkes rett? Jeg er vant til å ta første maske løst av. Er det riktig forstått at felling 28-31m skal gjøres etter at de omgangene som står beskrevet under bise er ferdigstrikket?

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 07:57:

Hei Solfrid, Når man strikker rille fram og tilbake er maskene alltid rette. Fellingen er, som du sier, etter at du er ferdig med 2 biser. God fornøyelse!

Merete Gimse 09.10.2018 - 00:23:

Ingen erfaren strikker og har sikkert tatt vann over hodet, men morro og prøve. Jeg har strikket 1.ben til arbeidet måler 21 cm og skal dele arbeidet på innsiden av benet ved merketråden.... Hvordan deler jeg arbeidet? Stikker på 2 ulike pinner?

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 10:21:

Hei Merete. Det betyr at du skal slutte å strikke rundt, og strikke frme og tilbake isteden. Alstå, du strikker til slutten av omgangen, snur arbeidet og strikker tilbake til starten igjen (husk at du må strikke vrang fra vrangen for at maskene skal bli rett fre rettsiden). Når du kommer til starten snur du arbeidet og strikker til slutten osv. Dette kan du helt fint gjøre på den rundpinnen/de settpinnene du bruker fra før. God fornøyelse.

Veronika 25.09.2018 - 02:13:

I am knitting the gown and have come to the M3 section however row 6 reads as follows K1, YO, K3, P2 tog, K3, YO however this does not line up with the previous rows. They add up to 10 sts however there are 9 knitted sts compared to 10 knitted sts for rows 2 and 4

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 07:54:

Hi Veronika, with knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, purl 2 together, knit 3 and 1 yarn over you have a total of 10 stitches which should line up with rows 2 and 4. Happy knitting!

Gabi Nickel 04.09.2018 - 14:31:

Ich möchte die Haube stricken. Sind bei M1 nur die Hinreihen zu sehen?\\\\r\\\\nWenn ja, dann habe ich weit mehr als 12cm wenn ich mit der Biese beginnen soll.\\\\r\\\\nWas heißt rechts auf rechts und links auf links im Diagramm?\\\\r\\\\nVielen Dank für Ihre Antwort

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:47:

Liebe Frau Nickel, die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen dh die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen. Die Hinreihen werden rechts nach links gelesen und die Rückreihen links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
