PATTERN:
See diagram M.1. 1 repetition of diagram M.1 = 10 tr in width and 7 rows vertically.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next tr but on last pull through, pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 st dec.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st in each side of piece by working 2 tr in 1st and last st on row.
---------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth. Loosely work 102-102-122-122-142-142 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Safran. Work 1st row (= RS) as follows: Work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, then 1 tr in every ch, turn = 99-99-119-119-139-139 tr (= 9-9-11-11-13-13 repetitions of diagram M.1 + 9 sts). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Then work 3-3-4-4-5-5 TR ROWS - Read explanation above = 4-4-5-5-6-6 tr rows vertically. Continue to work diagram M.1 as follows:
ROW 1: 1 ch, 1 dc in 1st tr, * 3 ch, skip the next 3 tr, in next tr work as follows: 1 tr, 3 ch, 1 tr, then 3 ch, skip the next 3 tr, 1 dc in each of the next 3 tr (= 3 dc) *, repeat from *-* the rest of row. When repeating from *-* the last time work 3 ch, skip the next 3 tr and work 1 dc in last tr, turn.
ROW 2: 1 ch, 1 dc in 1st dc, * 3 ch, skip next ch-loop, 7 tr in next ch-loop (between 2 tr), 3 ch, 1 dc in the middle dc from 1ST ROW *, repeat from *-* the rest of row. When repeating from *-* the last time work 3 ch and 1 dc in last dc, turn.

Na het lezen van de opmerkingen kom ik er toch niet helemaal uit. Ben nu bij de hals en als ik 9 st. overhou en daarna het werk keer en verder haak volgens patroon, hou ik een hoek over in de V hals. komt dat bij de afwerking van de hals goed? wil graag zoals op de foto een V hals maken in de trui. Hoor graag of dit klopt.

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 22:03:

Hallo Elly, Voor de V-hals haak je tot de middelste steek van de vorige toer en dan keer je. Ik weet niet welke maat je haakt, maar bijvoorbeeld voor maat S heb je op dat moment 99 steken op de toer en je haakt 49 steken. Als je straks voor de andere helft ook 49 steken haakt kom je op 98 steken uit. Geen hoek dus, maar 1 steek midden waar niet in gehaakt wordt.

Godeau 27.01.2016 - 10:07:

Bonjour, je suis partie sur une taille M qui est trop large mais bien dans la longueur. est-il possible que je travail trop large (mon échantillon était pourtant bon) et dans ce cas est-il possible de travailler avec un crochet n°3? et pas assez de laine pourtant prévu pour une taille L. dans l'attente de votre réponse. Cordialement PS: merci pour vos super modèles

DROPS Design 27.01.2016 kl. 10:41:

Bonjour Mme Godeau, pensez à bien crocheter avec la même tension que celle de votre échantillon, il est facile de relâcher sa tension en cours d'ouvrage - ajustez la taille de votre crochet si nécessaire pour bien avoir le même échantillon, et vérifiez bien votre taille à partir des mesures du schéma. Bon crochet!

Heather Keener 12.01.2016 - 23:46:

I'm working on the front-left neckline. My piece (is a Med.) DECREASE's: Do they occur on the RS only or is it every row? *dec 2 dc on WS, dec 2 dc on RS; at the neck. = 2 rows leaves me with 37 dc. *dec 1 dc on each of next 4 rows at the neckline. = 33 dc repeat 33 dc until piece measures 64 cm.

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 10:08:

Dear Mrss Keener, that's correct, you dec every row towards neckline, ie both from WS and from RS. Happy crocheting!

Caitlan 19.10.2014 - 21:21:

I'm a little confused by the size chart for this pattern. As it seems that the bust size is listed as the same for both large and xl. the 38" small medium would definitely be too small, but 47" seems huge for my 41 inch bust. I am about a size fourteen petite in regular clothing, what size would you recommend?

DROPS Design 20.10.2014 kl. 10:31:

Dear Caitlan, this tunic is worked a bit loose, if you want something fitter, you will have to adjust to your size. Your DROPS Store may help you if required. Happy crocheting!

Thea 25.05.2014 - 21:18:

Ik snap de beschrijving van de hals niet helemaal. Na het telpatroon ( dus na de vaste toer) staat er: haak tot er 8 st over zijn op de toer, hoe bedoelen jullie dat?

DROPS Design 27.05.2014 kl. 12:06:

Hoi Thea. Je hebt 49 v op de toer en haakt dan de volgende toer van de goede kant tot er nog 8 st over zijn (= dus je hebt 41 v gehaakt). Keer het werk.

Mil Chimley 21.12.2013 - 18:36:

Is there a size chart available to show what sizes S,M,L,XL,XXL,XXL refer to please?

DROPS Design 27.12.2013 kl. 13:08:

Dear Mrs Chimley, you will find at the bottom of the page (end of written pattern) a measurement chart with all measurements in cm. Happy crocheting!

Sarah 01.10.2013 - 18:38:

Ich komme jetzt an der Stelle nicht weiter, in der es am Halsauschnitt wie folgt gehen soll: 2 mal 2M., 3 mal 1 M. Soll ich da 4 Maschen zusammenfassen oder übrig lassen und wie ist die Verteilung auf die Reihen? Das verstehe ich nicht ganz. Liebe Dank für die Rückmeldung!

DROPS Design 02.10.2013 kl. 09:54:

Liebe Sarah, die Maschen werden durch Zusammenhäkeln abgenommen, damit keine "Treppe" entsteht, also über 4 M je 2 zusammenhäkeln = 2 M abgenommen. Es wird in jeder R abgenommen (siehe Anleitung).

Willy Van Bommel-Drissen 11.09.2013 - 15:17:

Wat is die uitleg van jullie supergoed, zelfs ik snap het!!! Met vriendelijke groeten

Hordijk 08.04.2013 - 00:14:

Geachte mevrouw, Is er geen omschrijving voor een V-hals? Zoals duidelijk te zien is op het voorbeeld? Een V-hals bij het M1-patroon is veel mooier dan een split. Kunt u mij hiervoor een instructie leveren? Met vriendelijke groet en dank.

DROPS Design 08.04.2013 kl. 19:16:

In het patroon staat hoe u de hals moet haken. Door de beschrijving te volgen vormt u een v-hals. Bij het afwerken haakt u ook een rand om de hals om deze helemaal af te maken.

Kati 23.01.2013 - 12:57:

Kiitos selvennyksestä. Eli kavennukset vaativat 10 kerrosta yhteensä. Ongelmana on myös se, että minulla tuon kuvion ja olkapään väliin jää vain 9 kerrosta, täytynee kaventaa vähän nopeammin.
