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.
Due to the pattern and the size of the needles, the top will be quite flexible. It will therefore stretch by approx. 5 cm when put on.
Tension: 12 sts x 20 rows with 3 strands = 10 x 10 cm with needle size 6 mm and moss st. Remember needle size is only a guide!

Moss st: 1st row: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*.
2nd row: K over P and P over K. Repeat 2nd row.

Measuring tip: Due to the weight of the yarn, the top should be measured when held up to keep to the measurements in the description.

Ridge (back and forth on needle):
1 ridge = 2 rows. 1st row: K, 2nd row: K.

Decrease tip (for the armholes):
All dec from RS. Dec for the armholes inside 2 edge sts which are worked in ridges.
Dec as follows after 2 edge sts: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, lift the slip st over. Dec as follows before 2 edge sts: K 2 tog.
NOTE: On the rows with no dec, work the third st from the edge in stocking st (K from RS, P from WS).

Front piece: Cast on 36-41-46-54-59 sts with needle size 6 and 1 strand of each colour = 3 strands. Work 1 row K, Continue with moss st to finished length. Remember knitting tension! When the piece measures 4 cm inc 1 st in each side every 4th-4th-4th-6th-6th cm in total 5-5-5-4-4 times = 46-51-56-62-67 sts. When the piece measures 23-24-25-26-27 cm - see measuring tip - work 2 ridges over the outermost 4-5-6-7-8 sts in each side (the other sts are worked in moss st). Then cast off 2-3-4-5-6 sts in each side for the armholes. Then dec in each side every 2nd row - see Decrease tip: 1 st 3-4-5-6-7 times = 36-37-38-40-41 sts. When the piece measures 30-32-33-35-37 cm cast off the middle 10-11-12-12-13 sts for the neck. Continue to cast off on each side of the neck every 2nd row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 4 times = 7-7-7-8-8 sts remain on each shoulder. Cast off when the piece measures 40-42-44-46-48 cm.

Back piece: Cast on and work as for the front piece. Dec for the armholes as for the front piece and continue working until the piece measures 38-40-42-44-46 cm. Now cast off the middle 20-21-22-22-23 sts for the neck. Continue to cast off 1 st towards the neck on the next row = 7-7-7-8-8 sts remain on each shoulder. Cast off when the piece measures 40-42-44-46-48 cm.

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams.

Neck: Crochet dc round the neck with hook size 5 mm and 1 strand of each colour = 3 strands - work 1 dc in each st. Finish with 1 sl st in first st at the beginning of the round.

Sew the side seams in the outermost loop of the outermost st so that the seam is not thick.

In der Anleitung (DROPS Nr. 78/3) ist folgender Druckfehler: statt der Abk. "R." wird die Abk. "Ndl" verwendet.
