K back and forth on all rows. 1 ridge = 2 K rows.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.1 shows all rows in 1 pattern repetition seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 55-55-59-63-67-71 sts on needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Cotton Light.
Work 6 rows in GARTER ST - read explanation above.
Work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, work diagram A.1 (13-13-14-15-16-17 times in total) until 2 sts remain on row, finish with 1st st in A.1 and 1 edge st in garter st.
Continue like this with pattern and 1 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures approx. 57-59-61-63-65-67 cm / 22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26½'' (finish with 2nd row in A.1), work in garter st over all sts.
When 3 ridges have been worked, loosely bind off all sts (piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''-26''-26¾'').

Sew tog for sleeves as follows (see chart): Place point a against point b, sew inside 1 edge st 8-7-6-5-4-4 cm / 3"-2 3/4"-2½"-2"-1½"-1½" from cast on edge in towards the middle. Repeat with point c against point d on the other side.

Worked in the round. With hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 and beg mid under a sleeve, work sc around the entire opening between sleeves (work approx. 4 sc over 6 rows) - no of sc should be divisible by 8. NOTE! Work enough sc to avoid a tight edge.
On next round, work as follows: ch 1, * 1 sc in next sc, ch 3, 1 sc in same sc, ch 1, skip 3 sc, in next sc work 5 dc with 1 ch between every dc, ch 1, skip 3 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round - see diagram A.2, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round, fasten off.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Til A1 : Du skal bare gjenta de to øverste radene.. altså IKKE rad nr.1

Nyn 28.05.2016 - 07:12:

Kan ni skriva i text hur A1 ska göras på rätsidan resp. Avigsidan maska för maska. Är det någon skillnad hur man gör på de båda sidorna för att det ska bli rätt mönster? Vad heter detta mer än hålmönster?

DROPS Design 30.05.2016 kl. 09:45:

Hej. Diagram A.1 visar varven sett från rätsidan. I förklaringen till symbolerna ser du hur du ska sticka. Dvs på v 2 (som ju stickas från avigsidan) stickas maskorna aviga. Lycka till!

Bonjour Je n'ai pas compris une chose dans la partie tricot : Pour le diagramme A1. Je fais le premier rang sur l'endroit avec 1m end puis un jeté puis glisser 1 m à l'end , 2m ens à l'end, passer la m glissée par dessus puis un jeté. Le rang 2 je suis donc à l'envers, est-ce que je fais toutes les mailles à l'envers ? Merci pour ces précisions. Blandine

DROPS Design 19.02.2016 kl. 15:03:

Bonjour Mme Schwetta, tout à fait, au rang 2, on tricote toutes les mailles à l'envers. Bon tricot!

Hallo, how does it look the reverse side, please?? Thanks for the answer

DROPS Design 12.08.2015 kl. 15:20:

Dear Mrs Lapínová, do you mean from wrong side ? in A.1 every row from WS is purled, so that you will have the holes and the sts in st st seen from RS and from WS, holes and P. Happy knitting!

Margaret 17.12.2014 - 18:08:

With 55 stiches the pattern repeats more than 13 times. Please explain what I could be doing wrong. What do I do in the next row with stiches now reduced to about 34?

DROPS Design 18.12.2014 kl. 08:45:

Dear Margaret, work the 55 sts as follows: 1 edge st, repeat A.1 (= 4 sts) a total of 13 times over the next 52 sts, 2 sts remain, work 1st st in A.1 (= 1 st st), and finish with 1 edge st. Click here to read more about diagrams (in Italian). Happy knitting!

Hallo. Ich habe den ersten Teil fertig gestrickt und wollte den Bolero jetzt zusammennähen und umhäkeln. Jetzt meine Frage: ich häkel an der Kante eine Runde feste Maschen und danach das Muster? Oder? Was bedeutet es, dass ich feste Maschen um die Öffnung zw. den Ärmeln machen soll und 4 fM über 6 R ??? Vielleicht habe ich auch nur einen Knoten im Kopf! Vielen Dank schon mal für die Hilfe!! LG Christina

DROPS Design 20.11.2014 kl. 14:28:

Den lösen wir. ;-) Sie nähen erst die Ärmel wie beschrieben zusammen, legen also die Punkte a+b und c+d zusammen und schließen die Nähte über die angegebene cm-Zahl. Dann häkeln Sie um den restlichen Rand, an den gestrickten R entlang, zuerst eine Rd feste M. Und zwar etwa 4 feste M über eine Länge von 6 gestrickten R - wenn Sie in jede gestrickte R 1 fM häkeln würden, würde sich der Rand wellen. Danach häkeln Sie dann die Spitzenkante wie beschrieben.

Am Anfang hat es bei mir mit dem Muster überhaupt nicht geklappt. Konnte dann aufgrund der Kommentare rausfinden, wo der Fehler bei mir lag. Danach hat es super geklappt. Habe in der gleichen Farbe wie auf dem Bild gestrickt. Ein süßes Teilchen, genau richtig für den Sommer. Ziehe es gerne zum Kleid an. Wenn ich mal Abend unterwegs bin, hat der Bolero Platz in jeder Handtasche. Das Material finde ich angenehm und der Bolero ist durch das Muster schön elastisch und dehnt sich.

Buongiorno, sto realizzando il modello 145-20 con cotton viscose Drops; però non capisco come lavorare l' ultimo punto della riga dopo le ripetizioni del motivo A.1 e prima del vivagno. Le istruzioni dicono di lavorare come il primo punto del motivo stesso, ma cosa si intende? il gettato e il punto passato a dr. non lavorato? per favore potreste indicarmelo esplicitamente? grazie mille!!!

DROPS Design 25.05.2014 kl. 19:39:

Buongiorno Francesca. La maglia dopo le ripetizioni del motivo A.1 e prima del vivagno, viene lavorata a dir sul diritto del lavoro e a rov sul rovescio del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Nancy 19.05.2014 - 07:24:

Please explain the directions of Drops 145-20. After 6 rows of garter then knit 2 and A.1(13) times -but it doesn't make sense- please help thanks

DROPS Design 19.05.2014 kl. 09:19:

Dear Nancy, you work next row as follows: 1 st in garter st, repeat A.1 a total of 13 times (size S+M) in width, 2 sts remain, work next st as 1st st in A.1 and finish with 1 st in garter st. Happy knitting!

Deborah 21.06.2013 - 14:56:
