See diagrams A-1 to A-8 for zigzag pattern, diagrams show all rows in pattern from RS. See diagram A-9 for stripes.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
LOOSELY cast on 308-352-396-440-484 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with black (it is important to cast on loosely to avoid a tight cast on edge). P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round.
Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 154-176-198-220-242 sts (these marks the sides).
Continue with diagram A-1 (= 14-16-18-20-22 repetitions on the round) and stripes according to A-9 until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 20-21-22-23-24 cm / 8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9½", work A-2 one time in the round = 280-320-360-400-440 sts. Continue with A-3.
When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39 cm / 13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14½"-15"-15 1/4", work A-4 one time in the round = 252-288-324-360-396 sts.
Continue with A-5. When piece measures 45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼'', work A-6 one time in the round = 224-256-288-320-352 sts.
Continue with A-7. When piece measures 57-58-59-60-61 cm / 22½"-22 3/4"-23 1/4"-23 5/8"-24", work A-8 one time in the round = 252-288-324-360-396 sts.
Continue with A-5. When piece measures approx. 72-72-73-74-75 cm / 28 3/8"-28 3/8"-28 3/4"-29 1/8"-29½", work next round as follows (make sure this is a round without inc and dec): bind off the first 3-3-4-5-6 sts, work 60-69-77-85-93 sts, insert a marker (marks split mid front), work 60-69-77-85-93 sts, bind off 6-6-8-10-12 sts, work 120-138-154-170-186 sts and bind off the last 3-3-4-5-6 sts, cut the thread. Finish each piece separately.

= 120-138-154-170-186 sts. Continue with pattern but work the outermost 6-6-14-22-30 sts in each side in stockinette st. At the same time bind off for armholes at beg of every row in each side: 3 sts 0-0-1-2-3 times, 2 sts 0-1-3-4-5 times and 1 st 0-4-5-5-6 times = 120-126-126-132-136 sts.
Continue pattern - there are now 6-0-0-3-5 sts in stockinette st in each side.
When piece measures 87-89-91-93-95 cm / 34 1/4"-35"-35 3/4"-36 5/8"-37 3/8", bind off the middle 34-34-40-40-46 sts for neck. Each shoulder = 43-46-43-46-45 sts, work separately, continue pattern as before but work in addition the 1-1-7-7-4 outermost sts towards neck in stockinette st.
When piece measures 88-90-92-94-96 cm / 34 5/8"-35½"-36 1/4"-37"-37 3/4", work 2 repetitions of A-5 without inc, i.e. dec 4-5-4-5-4 sts on every K row 2 times = 35-36-35-36-37 sts on shoulder. Bind off sts on next row.

= 60-69-77-85-93 sts.
Continue pattern, work the outermost 6-6-14-22-30 sts towards armhole in stockinette st, work the outermost 3 sts towards mid front in pattern but in garter st, i.e. K from WS. AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armhole in the side as on back piece = 60-63-63-66-68 sts.
When piece measures 80-81-82-83-84 cm / 31½"-32"-32 1/4"-32 3/4"-33", bind off for neck at beg of every row from WS: 9 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-2-2-3 times and 1 st 3-3-4-4-5 times – work the sts that do not fit the pattern when binding off in stockinette st = 43-46-43-46-45 sts remain on shoulder.
When piece measures 88-90-92-94-96 cm / 34 5/8"-35½"-36 1/4"-37"-37 3/4", work A-5 two more times vertically but without inc just dec, i.e. 4-5-4-5-4 sts less on every K row 2 times = 35-36-35-36-37 sts remain on needle.
On next row from RS, bind off.

Work as left front piece but bind off for neck at beg of every row from RS. Make sure to finish on the same stripe in A-9 as on left front piece.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
LOOSELY cast on 74-76-80-84-90 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with black. Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Continue like this (in stripes according to A-9): 1-2-4-6-0 sts in stockinette st, A-5 4-4-4-4-5 times and 1-2-4-6-0 sts in stockinette st.
When piece measures 15-13-12-12-11 cm / 6"-5 1/8"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/8", inc 1 st on each side of marker mid under sleeve – work the inc sts in stockinette st. Repeat inc every 3½-2½-2-1½-1½ cm / 1 1/4"-7/8"-3/4"-½"-½" 9-13-16-19-20 more times = 94-104-114-124-132 sts.
When piece measures 49-48-46-45-43 cm / 19 1/4"-19"-18"-17 3/4"-17" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders), bind off 8 sts mid under sleeve and work back and forth until finished measurements.
Continue pattern - AT THE SAME TIME bind off for sleeve cap at beg of every row in each side: 3 sts 1 time and then 2 sts in each side until piece measures 54 cm / 21 1/4", then bind off 3 sts 1 time in each side.
Bind off the remaining sts, the piece measures approx. 55 cm / 21½''.

Crochet 1 row with black and sc around the neck and split (beg mid back) – at the same time crochet 1 buttonhole loop at the top on right side of split, beg when 1 cm / 3/8'' remains of split, ch 5, then 1 sc at the top of split, work until mid back and cut the thread.

Sew in sleeves and sew on 1 button on left side at the top of split.

Bonjour, j'ai commencé le modèle 140-30 et ai terminé le diagramme A-1. Je vais débuter le diagramme A-2 mais je ne comprends pas la 2ème ligne. Pouvez-vous m'aider afin que je puisse continuer ma robe ! D'avance, je vous en remercie ! Salutations !

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:36:

Bonjour Mme Rochat, le diagramme A.2 permet de diminuer le nombre de mailles à intervalles réguliers, au 1er tour, tricotez: 9 m end, vous diminuez 2 fois 1 m (comme avant dans A.1) et terminez par 9 m end = 20 m. Au 2ème tour de A.2, tricotez ces 20 m à l'endroit (= vous avez diminué 2 m dans chaque A.2 tout le tour). Tricotez ensuite A.3 jusqu'à la hauteur indiquée. Bon tricot!

Trine R 08.03.2017 - 20:25:

Som en bruger tidligere skriver, er jeg nu i samme båd. Strikker nu prøve på pind 2.5 og har 24 m på 10 cm i bredden v. diagram A-3. Kan det virkelig være rigtigt?

DROPS Design 09.03.2017 kl. 13:57:

Hej Trine. Jeg ved ikke hvordan du maaler, men jeg har lige testet og jeg sidder med 30 m i bredden paa pinde 3 mm, saa det burde vaere muligt. Pröv eventuelt at vaske din pröve og maal fladt.

Kim 26.12.2016 - 16:31:

Hallo. Ik ben begonnen met het afzonderlijk breien met het linkervoorpand. Na 6 naalden het patroon gevolgd te hebben, en afgekant bij het armsgat, kom ik middenvoor steken tekort. Kunt u het patroon nog wat verduidelijken? Bedankt.

DROPS Design 30.12.2016 kl. 12:46:

Hoi Kim. Je hebt 69 st en kant af aan de zijkant (alleen aan de zijkant) zoals op het achterpand: 1 keer 2 st en 4 keer 1 = 6 st minder. Daarna moet je afkanten voor de hals: 1 keer 9 st, 1 keer 3 st, 1 keer 2 st en 3 keer 1 st: 17 st minder. Dus dan heb je 46 st over voor de schouder.

Kim 02.11.2016 - 19:35:

Inmiddels heb ik het patroon onder de knie. Echter, nog een andere vraag: ik brei de jurk op een rondbreinaald. Is het de bedoeling dat ik, wanneer ik begin met patroon A1, overga op tricotstreek?

DROPS Design 03.11.2016 kl. 16:15:

Hoi Kim. Ja, r aan de goede kant/av aan de verkeerde kant is tricotst - brei je in de rondte, dan is het elke nld r breien.

Kim 28.10.2016 - 22:35:

Geweldig leuk jurkje! Fanatiek begonnen, maar.. na de eerste keer patroon A1 gevolgd te hebben, hou ik na de 16x (maat M/L) nu voor de vierde keer wéér 4 steken over. Tel ik nu steeds verkeerd of doe ik iets structureel fout? Misschien dat enige verduidelijking kan helpen?

DROPS Design 01.11.2016 kl. 10:30:

Hoi Kim. Kan het zijn dat je verkeerd meerdert/mindert zodat je st overhoudt. Je moet het aantal st gelijk houden, je meerdert aan het begin en aan het eind van de 16 st (de kruisjes) door 2 st in 1 st te breien, maar je mindert in het midden ook weer 2 st. Ik zou een markeerder zetten bij elke herhaling, zodat je direct kan tellen hoeveel st je hebt en snel een mogelijke fout terugvinden.

Lis Fredborg 10.09.2015 - 09:33:

Jeg vil lave kjolen 20cm kortere end modellen. Skal jeg forkorte den den indenfor de første 45cm

DROPS Design 16.09.2015 kl. 11:38:

Hej Lis, Ja, det ville jeg göre. Om muligt, pröv den paa undervejs, saa du er sikker paa laengden. God fornöjelse

Mette Jacobsen 17.05.2015 - 13:21:

Jeg skal helt ned på pind nr. 2,5 for at strikkefastheden passer nogenlunde. Det har jeg aldrig været udsat for før. Bliver striberne så ikke for smalle, til at det bliver pænt?

DROPS Design 18.05.2015 kl. 09:13:

Hej Mette, har du målt din strikkefasthed i siksak mønster? Hvis du overholder strikkefastheden så bliver striberne som på billedet. God fornøjelse!

Jozefien De Bruijn 15.12.2014 - 22:10:

Welk soort meerdering werd er gebruikt? Twee steken uit een steek blijkt na 30 naalden erg slordig. Op de foto is het mooi regelmatig. Maar hoe doe ik dat?

DROPS Design 16.12.2014 kl. 16:34:

Hoi Jozefien. In dit patroon meerder je door 2 st in één st te breien. Kijk ook hier:

Lone Højberg 16.05.2014 - 13:32:

Der står ikke noget om at sy skuldersømmen sammen, men jeg går ud fra, at man skal gøre det, før man strikker kanten rundt i halsen. Eller hvad?

DROPS Design 16.05.2014 kl. 13:53:

Hej Lone. Ja, det skal du göre. Vi skal faa det tilföjet i teksten. Tak for din kommentar.

Ulla 09.05.2014 - 17:07:
