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.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

GARTER ST (in the round): *K 1 round, P 1 round*, repeat from *-*.

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 (= 13 sts). The diagram shows the pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP (applies to the body):
Dec on each side of the 4 markers as follows: Work until 2 sts before the marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso (the marker), K 2 tog.

INCREASE TIP: K 2 sts in 1 st.

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the weight of the yarn all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.
--------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 260-273-286-299-325-351 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work 4 rounds in garter st - see explanation above. Then work diagram M.1 over all sts - see explanation above. When M.1 has been worked a total of 2 times vertically, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-5-0-1-5-5 sts evenly = 260-268-286-298-320-346 sts. Continue working in stockinette st over all sts. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 15cm insert 4 markers in the piece as follows (the round beg in the side): Work 37-38-43-45-50-56 sts, insert a marker, work 56-58-57-59-60-61 sts, insert a marker, work 74-76-86-90-100-112 sts, insert a marker, work 56-58-57-59-60-61 sts, insert a marker and work the rest of round (= 37-38-43-45-50-56 sts) On next round dec 1 sts on each side of each marker - SEE DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec on every 6th-6th-6th-7th-7th-7th round a total of 14-13-13-12-12-12 times = 148-164-182-202-224-250 sts. 6 rounds after last dec, inc 1 sts on each side of each marker on next round - read INCREASE TIP. Work 6 rounds without inc, then repeat the inc one last time = 164-180-198-218-240-266 sts. Remove the markers. Continue to work until piece measures 51-51-51-52-53-54 cm / 20"-20"-20"-20½"-21"-21 1/4". READ MEASURING TIP!

= 80-89-97-108-117-131 sts. Worked back and forth on circular needle from this point. Continue with the pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armhole at beg of row in each side as follows: 2 sts 2-3-5-7-7-9 times and 1 st 1-2-2-2-3-4 times = 70-73-73-76-83-87 sts (NOTE!

When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' bind off for sleeve cap at beg of row in each side as follows: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-2-2-1-1-1 times, 1 st 8-9-11-16-16-18 times, then bind off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 17-18-19-21-21-23 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8 1/4"-8 1/4"-9" bind off 3 sts 1 time in each side.

Jeg er igang med kjolen - str S. Strikker stadig på skørtet ( mangler stadig 3 indtagn) strikkefastheden holder - og jeg har allerede brugt 6,5 nøgler garn ( muskat) har købt 10 nøgler som opskriften siger. Kan det virkelig passe at der er nok?

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 11:17:

Hej Pia, husk at brystvidden er 40 cm mindre end omkredsen på skørtet, der bør være nok, vi har ikke hørt andet fra dem som har strikket den...

Petrowiste 23.01.2017 - 09:38:

Bonjour, j'aimerai savoir combien de pelotes il me faudrait pour une taille S avec des manches longues ? merci à vous et bonne journée :)

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 11:11:

Bonjour Mme Petrowiste, en taille S, manches courtes il vous faut 500 g / 50 g la pelote Muskat = 10 pelotes. Pour des manches longues, inspirez-vous d'un modèle analogue ou demandez conseil à votre magasin DROPS. Bon tricot!

Maja 05.05.2015 - 10:41:

Hej, jeg vil gerne til at strikke denne kjole, men jeg er forvirret over målene. Jeg er slank og normalt bruger jeg str. small/medium, hvilket passer fint med længden på kjolen, men ifølge alle de andre mål ville jeg skulle strikke den aller største størelse (str. XXXL). Kan det virkelig passe, eller er det fordi kjolen bliver meget elastisk og kan udvide sig (synes ellers den ser ud til at hænge forholdsvis løst på modellen)? Eller er målene ikke angivet i cm? Håber I kan hjælpe. Vh. Maja

DROPS Design 05.05.2015 kl. 11:22:

Hej Maja. Maalene er i cm, men det er ikke omkreds - men maalt i bredden (fladt). Dvs, at small er omkreds 82 cm og XXXL er 130 cm (maalt over barmen). Nu ved jeg ikke dine maal selvfölgelig, men er du bredere over barmen, kan du tage lidt mere ud (strikke maaske en störrelse mere i bredden). Jeg er selv ca small i laengden og en medium i bredden :-D

Kara 17.02.2013 - 14:29:

What if i want to make the dress longer in the skirt area?

Kara 17.02.2013 - 14:26:

So what does M.1 mean then?

DROPS Design 20.02.2013 kl. 17:10:

M.1 is the diagram at the bottom of the pattern

Karin 20.12.2012 - 17:20:

Wanneer je dit telpatroon M.1 volgt minder je iedere keer 2 steken, klopt dat?

DROPS Design 20.12.2012 kl. 21:35:

Nee, het aantal steken blijft hetzelfde. Je minder 6 st (twee keer 4 st samen breien = 4 st worden 1) en je hebt ook 6 omslagen

Jonelle 22.05.2012 - 00:25:

I would suggest a different name for the pattern stitch. "M.1" is easily confused with "M1" which means "make one." It took me a while to figure out what was meant in the first rows after switching to smaller needles.

Grethe Chr. 11.02.2011 - 09:26:

Skøn skøn strik

Stephanie Bulmer 18.01.2011 - 21:27:

Stunning!
