See diagram A-1, diagram shows pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP (applies to round yoke):
Dec alternately before and after all markers by K 2 tog.
---------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Beg by working the skirt back and forth on circular needle from side to side. To give the skirt width at the bottom work with short rows. Then work the yoke in stocking st with round yoke.

LOOSELY cast on 84-92-100-108-116 sts on 2 circular needles size 3 mm with 623, rose mist. Pull out one of the needles (to avoid a tight cast on edge or cast on on a thicker needle).
The whole skirt is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Work first row as follows (from waist down = WS):
K 12 sts, insert a marker, * K 8 sts, insert a marker *, repeat from *-* the entire row = a total of 9-10-11-12-13 markers, there are 8 sts after the last marker.
Move the markers alongside when working.
K 1 row over all sts from bottom and up.
Continue with short rows as follows (tighten the thread on every turn in mid of piece before continuing, to avoid holes):
* K 2 rows (= 1 ridge) with pink back and forth over all sts (1st row = WS), switch to rose mist, K 11 rows (= a total of 6,5 ridges) back and forth over all sts. Continue with rose mist as follows: Work until first marker, turn and work back. Work until second marker, turn and work back. Continue like this until it has been worked up to last marker, turn and work back. K 1 row over all sts from bottom and up *.
I.e. 1 repetition (*-*) = 7 ridges at the top and 16-17-18-19-20 ridges at the bottom.
Repeat from *-* until piece measures approx. 60-64-68-72-76 cm in the shortest side (= top) – measure when piece is flat on the table – finish after 1 whole repetition, cast off all sts VERY LOOSELY with rose mist. Piece measures approx. 137-155-175-195-217 cm in the longest side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog skirt mid back – sew cast on edge against cast off edge, edge to edge to get a flat seam.

TOP:
Beg mid back and knit up 1 st in every ridge (2 rows in garter st) around the entire opening of the skirt on circular needle size 2.5 mm with pink.
P 1 round, then K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 144-153-162-171-180 sts. Then work diagram A-1 (= 16-17-18-19-20 repetitions on the round). After A-1, K 1 round and P 1 round. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and rose mist and continue in stocking st – AT THE SAME TIME on 2nd round dec 4-3-2-1-0 sts evenly = 140-150-160-170-180 sts.
When piece measures 7-8-9-10-11 cm (from where sts were knitted up for top) work next round as follows: Work 32-34-36-38-40 sts, cast off 6-7-8-9-10 sts for armhole, work 64-68-72-76-80 sts, cast off 6-7-8-9-10 sts for armhole, work 32-34-36-38-40 sts. Put piece aside and knit the sleeve edges.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 56-59-62-65-68 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with pink. K 3 rows back and forth (1st row = WS). Work next row as follows: Cast off 3-4-4-5-5 sts, work 50-52-54-56-58 sts, cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5 sts. Cut the thread, put piece aside and work another sleeve edge.

YOKE:
Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 228-240-252-264-276 sts. Insert 12 markers in the piece, 19-20-21-22-23 sts apart.
Continue with rose mist and in stocking st – round still beg mid back. Work 4-4-6-6-8 rounds before dec beg. On next round dec 1 st before all markers - SEE DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 4th round a total of 7-8-8-9-9 times and then every other round a total of 3 times for all sizes = 108-108-120-120-132 sts.
Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Now work an elevation in back of neck, back and forth on needle from mid back as follows: K 8 sts, turn and P 16 sts on return, turn, K 24 sts, turn, P 32 sts, continue by working 8 sts more on every turn until a total of 64-64-80-80-96 sts have been worked, turn and K until marker mid back again (i.e. 32-32-40-40-48 sts). Then K 1 round over all sts while at the same time dec 22-16-22-16-22 sts evenly = 86-92-98-104-110 sts.
Switch to pink and K 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round, P 1 round, then loosely cast off with K.
The entire dress measures approx. 54-59-65-70-75 cm up to shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sleeve edge tog in front loop of outermost st and sew opening under the sleeves, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

Non ho capito l\'ultimo passaggio \"Proseguire con il colore foschia rosa e lavorare 1 giro a dir, 1 giro a rov, 1 giro a dir, 1 giro a rov; intrecciare poi le m a dir, senza stringere troppo il filo.\" Stavo già lavorando con il colore \"foschia rosa\", cosa devo fare? Grazie

DROPS Design 03.08.2019 kl. 21:37:

Buongiorno Lulù. Abbiamo corretto il testo. Deve lavorare con il colore rosa. Buon lavoro!

Helen 18.07.2019 - 02:59:

It would be great to get a long sleeved version of this! how much extra wool would be required for this? any suggestions on how many stitches and length would be much appreciated :)

DROPS Design 18.07.2019 kl. 10:34:

Dear Helen, we are unfortunately not able to adapt every pattern to every single request. You can find inspiration from pattern with circular yoke and long sleeve, for any further individual assistance please contact the store where you bought the yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Elli 13.03.2019 - 11:24:

Kann man kein Video von dem Kleid herstellen? Die Anleitung ist schwer zu verstehen!

DROPS Design 13.03.2019 kl. 12:17:

Liebe Elli, es würde leider etwas kompliziert, so ein Video herzustellen - zuerst stricken Sie den Rock quer mit verkürzten Reihen dann werden die Maschen für das Oberteil aufgefassen und von unten nach oben gestrickt. Gerne können Sie auch hier Ihre Frage stellen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bärbel 03.02.2019 - 19:31:

Sie schreiben, der Rapport besteht oben aus 7 Krausrippen und unten aus 17 Krausrippen bei einer Größe von 110/116. Ich bekomme aber oben nur 6 Krausrippen und unten nur 16 Krausrippen. Ich habe sehr oft neu angefangen und immer das gleiche Ergebnis. Was mache ich falsch?

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 13:25:

Liebe Bärbel, Sie stricken: 2 Reihe über alle M + 11 Reihe über alle M + 2 Reihe bis 1. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 2. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 3. Markierer + 2 Reihen bis 4. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 5. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 6. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 7. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 8. Markierer + 2 Reihe bis 9. Markierer + 1 Reihe bis 10. Markierer + 1 Reihe über alle Maschen = 34 Reihen (= 7 Krausrippen oben und 17 Krausrippen unten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

ELI OBERLAENDER 17.06.2018 - 14:56:

En faisant mon échantillon le nb de mailles soit 24 font effectivement 10 cm de large\\\\r\\\\n mais les rangs eux font 9 cm \\\\r\\\\nsolution?

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Mme Oberlaender, si vous n'arrivez pas à la bonne tension en hauteur avec des aiguilles plus grosses (tout en gardant le bon nombre en largeur), vous pouvez conserver cette tension, toutefois, veillez à bien ajuster la jupe (et les rangs raccourcis) à la longueur indiquée sous les explications (en cm et non en rangs).Pour éviter que l'empiècement ne soit trop court, tricotez des tours supplémentaires sans diminutions à espaces réguliers entre les ceux de diminutions (en vous calquant sur votre tension). Votre magasin saura vous apporter toute assistance complémentaire. Bon tricot!

Carolin 09.04.2018 - 15:15:

Liebes Dropsteam, ich würde gern wissen, ob die Maschenproben für die Muster vor dem Zählen gewaschen werden müssen, oder ob die Zahlen für die "trocken" gestrickte Maschenprobe gelten. Danke im Voraus.

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 16:07:

Liebe Carolin, am besten waschen Sie und lassen Sie immer Ihre Mascheprobe trocknen, und dann die Nadelgröße anpassen, ob es nötig ist. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jessica 16.03.2018 - 19:24:

Liebes Dropsteam, schon zu Beginn der Strickanleitung habe ich ein Problem, denn egal wie oft ich nachzähle, bei 116 Maschen und der Abfolge 12 Maschen, Markierer, 8 Maschen usw. komme ich niemals auf 13 Markierer, sondern auf 10 Markierer bei 120 angeschlagenen Maschen. Wo habe ich einen Denkfehler?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:00:

Liebe Jessica, So setzen Sie die Markierungen: 12 M stricken, 1 Markierung, (8 M stricken, 1 Markierung) von (bis) insgesamt 12 x über die nächsten 96 M wiederholen, und die letzte 8 Maschen stricken = 13 Markierungen über die 116 M (12+ 8x12 + 8). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dit jurkje gebreid in de originele kleuren,daarna in alpaca olijfgroen met alpaca lichtgrijze strepen en effen grijs bovenstukje. Zelfde jurkje compleet ander effect. jurkje nummer drie is nu in de maak met hoofdkleur roze met paarse strepen en paarse tailleband, op verzoek van mijn kleindochter van vier. mooi patroon,prachtige pasvorm

Marije 16.02.2017 - 17:09:

In de paragraaf over de jurk staan deze twee zinnen: Ga zo verder tot u gebreid hebt tot de laatste markeerder, keer en brei de teruggaande nld *. Brei 1 nld r van onderen naar boven. Klopt het dat de * ná deze twee zinnen moet staan, in plaats van halverwege? Anders kom ik niet op een geheel aantal ribbels uit per herhaling, en zit de streep dus afwisselend aan de goede en aan de verkeerde kant van het werk.
