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.
GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
1 ridge = 2 rounds * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 (zigzag pattern) - diagram shows pattern from RS. And diagram M.3 (stripes).

DECREASE TIP (applies to zigzag pattern):
See M.2 for example. All dec are done on the rounds where pattern is worked. Dec 2 sts in every repetition by working as follows: 2 sts in same st, work until 3 sts remain before the middle of repetition, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 3 tog. Work the rest of the repetition and finish by working 2 sts in the same st. On next round work as before but with 1 st less on each side of the middle.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.

--------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Start the round at the side. Cast on 260-286-312-338-364-390 sts on 2 circular needles size 4 mm (to avoid a tight cast on edge) with light blue. Pull out one of the circular needles.
Work 4 rounds in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work zigzag pattern following chart M.1 (10-11-12-13-14-15 repetitions) and AT THE SAME TIME work stripes following chart M.3 (repeat M.3 until piece measures 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12-12-11-11-14-14 cm from bottom tip, dec 2 sts in every repetition - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 9-9-10-10-12-12 cm a total of 5-5-5-5-4-4 times = 160-176-192-208-252-270 sts (= 16-16-16-16-18-18 sts remain in every repetition). Continue to work until piece measures 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm. K 1 round with the colour used on last stripe while AT THE SAME TIME dec 12-12-12-6-26-18 sts evenly = 148-164-180-202-226-252 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 74-82-90-101-113-126 sts (markers = each side). Move the markers upwards when working.
Switch to ice blue and work in stocking st.
When piece measures 2-2-2-3-3-3 cm from the start of ice blue, inc 1 st on each side of both markers in each side (= 4 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every 2-2½-2½-2½-3-3 cm a total of 3 times = 160-176-192-214-238-264 sts, now ice blue section measures 6-7-7-8-9-9 cm. K 1 round with ice blue while AT THE SAME TIME casting off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts in each side (i.e. 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts on each side of both markers) for armholes = 72-80-88-97-109-122 sts remain on front and back piece.
Cut the thread, put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 60-66-69-75-78-81 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with off white. Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). Work in GARTER ST for 2 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and ice blue. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME casting off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts mid under sleeve (4-4-4-5-5-5 sts on each side of marker) = 52-58-61-65-68-71 sts. Cut the thread, put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

Start round mid back!
Size S + M + L: When piece measures 2 cm, dec 34-40-40 sts evenly (tighten the thread a little when working 2 and 2 sts tog to make dec less visible), repeat dec when piece measures 4 cm and 6 cm = 146-156-178 sts. When piece measures 8 cm, dec 20 sts evenly = 126-136-158 sts.
Size XL + XXL + XXXL: When piece measures 3 cm, dec 40-42-44 sts evenly (tighten the thread a little when working 2 and 2 sts tog to make dec less visible), repeat dec when piece measures 6 cm and 9 cm = 204-228-254 sts. When piece measures 12 cm, dec 20 sts evenly = 184-208-234 sts.

Der Abstand im eisblauen Oberteil bis zu den Armausschnitten wird in der Anleitung mit 7cm für Größe L angegeben. Im Vergleich zum Modellfoto erscheint mir das viel zu kurz. Würden Sie mir bitte die genauen Maße mitteilen? Vielen Dank! Mit freundlichen Grüßen Elke Hasert

DROPS Design 26.08.2018 kl. 10:22:

Liebe Elke, die Maße sollten so stimmen. Die 7 cm mögen etwas kurz wirken, jedoch wird ja auch noch die Passe angestrickt, die sich beim Tragen optisch etwas nach unten zieht. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Crina Petroianu 31.05.2018 - 15:57:

When working M1, the number of stitches is actually 24 not 26 as diagram shows, or I\'m missing something? As far as I see, in the diagram is shown 2x2 stitches ( 4) for the decreases instead of 2x1 stitches (2) as left after decrease.

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 16:05:

Dear Mrs Petroianu, M.1 is worked over 26 sts: Kfb the first st, K10, slip 1 as if to K, K1, psso, K2 tog, K10, kfb the last st = 1+10+2+2+10+1=26 sts. Happy knitting!

Helle Olsen 11.04.2018 - 20:35:

Hej...jeg kan ikke se hvornår jeg skal bruge mønster 3...har læst opskriften igennem flere gange...

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 14:20:

Hei Helle. M.3 er fargene på skjørtet, og den skal strikkes rundt samtidig som sikk-sakk mønsteret i M.1. Du begynner på både M.1 (sikk-sakk mønster) og M.3 (fargene) rett etter de 2 rillene helt på starten. God fornøyelse

Jane 06.07.2017 - 01:26:

Heisan...Is the color change supposed to be done while knitting Row 1 of M.1 when the zigzag pattern is being worked? I've been making the color changes on Row 1of M.1 and part of the "work 2 sts in same st" is visible...a "bar" of yarn because of the color change. Takk for hjelpen.

DROPS Design 06.07.2017 kl. 09:48:

Dear Jane, colour will be change when working 1st round in M.1. Happy knitting!

Sara 24.01.2017 - 03:34:

When working the M1. Do i follow the video and do the first row only with decreases? Or do i do increases also in the 1st row?

DROPS Design 24.01.2017 kl. 09:53:

Dear Sara, video is showing the technique, you have to work as shown in the diagram to the pattern, ie in M1, inc and dec on first row. Happy knitting!

Tine Faurby 09.01.2017 - 16:15:

Hej, er der ikke en uoverensstemmelse mellem listen over materialer i starten og mønsteret? Der står man skal bruge 100 g.farve 02 Lys blå, men i mønsteret er der ingen Lys blå, til gengæld er der angivet Jeansblå i mønsteret, og den er ikke i materialeliste. Hvilken er det på billedet? Kan jeg så regne med at skulle bruge 100 g. Jeansblå? Mange hilsner Tine

DROPS Design 10.01.2017 kl. 13:51:

Hej Tine. Du skal bruge farve nr. 02. Farven har aendret navn (lys blaa var mere passende). Saa bestiller du 02, faar du den rette.

Anne Poulsen 20.03.2016 - 20:54:

Hej Er der nogen som har erfaring med størrelsen? Jeg er bange for at kjolen ville blive for stram og vise alle mine deller når jeg sider ned, men den skal jo samtidig ikke ligne et telt når jeg står op. Hilsen Anne

Hej Anne, Jo modellen sidder til i taljen, hvis du kigger på måleskitsen nederst i opskriften så ser du taljemålet som skal ganges med 2 for at få omkredsen. Det vil sige at taljen måler 70-78-86-96-108-120 cm i de forskellige størrelser. Vælg den størrelse som passer dig. God fornøjelse!

Nina 12.08.2014 - 15:42:

Takk for svar. Betyr det bare at jeg må gjenta M.1 for å få sikk-sakk mønsteret? Hvor mange ganger skal jeg gjøre det?

DROPS Design 12.08.2014 kl. 16:21:

Hei Nina. Ja, du gentager M.1 samtidig med M.3 til 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm - afhaengigt hvilken str du strikker.

Ulla 12.08.2014 - 15:30:

Se Minskningstips! M2 är bara ett ex. hur man minskar.
