The number of beginning chains seems excessive for each size— using recommenced materials and following size small, 269 foundation chains is equal to 86 inches across the bottom— finished size according to pattern says a small 41 inches wide, not 86. Please advise. Thanks!

Dear Mrs Wieman, pattern is correct, you are here casting on more chains than the number of sts required on first round - read more here. Happy crocheting!

Buonasera, domando se è possibile lavorare la gonna in tondo anziché in righe di andata e ritorno (per evitare le cuciture) Grazie in anticipo. Il modello è bellissimo!!! Anna

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 21:30:

Buonasera Anna. Per un risultato uniforme, le consigliamo di lavorare avanti e indietro. Nella gonna è prevista un'apertura in alto, sul lato sinistro per i bottoni. Lavorando in tondo e volendo comunque i bottoni, l'ultima parte della gonna verrebbe lavorata avanti e indietro e sarebbe diversa dalla parte lavorata in tondo. Buon lavoro!

Lidia 21.11.2016 - 13:01:

What does it mean 'repeat dec. every 5 cm 2 more times"? This means dec 10 sts on next two row? Thank you!

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 13:20:

Dear Lidia, you will dec 1 st before each marker every 2 cm 2 times - you will dec 10 sts (= 10 markers) on each of these 2 rows - and there will be 5 cm between each dec row. Happy crocheting!

Lidia 19.11.2016 - 22:32:

What does it mean "work 1 sc in each of the next 1-3-5-1-1-1 ch"?Thank you!

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 09:46:

Dear Lidia, you will crochet 1 sc in each of the next 1 ch (= 1st size) - 3 ch (= 2nd size) - 5 ch (= 3rd size) - 1 ch (= 4th,5th and 6th size). Happy crocheting!

Ann Marie Salvatore 14.08.2015 - 09:40:

I love the skirt! Is there a pattern for the blouse that is in the photos? I would love to make the set. Thank you for your time.

Maureen Chambers 03.06.2014 - 16:24:

Ok, I just figured out this skirt must begin from the bottom.

Maureen Chambers 03.06.2014 - 16:22:

I live on the Jersey shore and love this skirt for my 27 year old daughter. My Question concerns the length of the beginning chain and first row down to 230 stitches seams to wide, unless you wrap the skirt. Can you explain? Thanks

Sophie 03.12.2012 - 22:44:

Bonjour, j'ai fait cette jupe et au moment de faire les boutonnières ,je me suis aperçue qu'elle était trop petite. Dans le patron c'est dit qu'après les diminutions il reste 140 mailles en S. Mais il me manque un bon 20 à 25 cm?? Je sais pas si je suis la seule? J'ai fait quelques uns de vos modèles et le S est toujours ok. Que puis-je avoir fait de pas correct? Merci P.S. À bonne grandeur elle sera sublime!

DROPS Design 04.12.2012 kl. 09:40:

Bonjour Sophie, les diminutions commencent à 12 cm (taille S), puis se font 2 x tous les 5 cm + 2x tous les 3 cm + 4 fois tous les 2 cm = 24 cm + les 12 cm = 36 cm. Après les diminutions, vous continuez en rayures jusqu'à 48 cm en ajustant après une rayure bleu marine. Bon crochet !

Van Den Bremt 04.06.2012 - 21:09:

Sorry,ik dacht dat het van de taille te beginnen was,van de onderkant klopt het! Ik ga er aan beginnen,ik vind het zeer mooie,dank u

Van Den Bremt Viviane 02.06.2012 - 14:13:

Ik vind dat er toch veel losse zijn voor maat L,is dat normaal dat het zo breed is,ik heb een proeflapje gemaakt en 22losse voor 10cm.Klopt het dat er zoveel losse moeten zijn,ik vind het breed.

DROPS Design 04.06.2012 kl. 16:26:

De stekenverhouding klopt. Het rokje wordt heen en weer gehaakt in één stuk. Bereken bijvoorbeeld maat S: 230 v / 22 v per 10 cm = 10,45 x 10 = 104,55 cm (totale breedte) / 2 = ca 52,27 cm breedte voor de voorkant/achterkant. Dit klopt ook met de afmeting op de schematekening.
