DRESS:
Loosely cast on 324-360-396-432-468-504 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Cotton Light. Work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked, 252-280-308-336-364-392 sts remain on needle. Then work pattern according to A.2 (= 9-10-11-12-13-14 repetitions with A.2 on round).
When A.2 has been worked (piece measures approx. 10 cm / 4''), insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Work 42-42-42-56-56-70 sts, insert 1 marker in next st, work 41-55-69-55-69-55 sts, insert 1 marker in next st, work 83-83-83-111-111-139 sts, insert 1 marker in next st, work 41-55-69-55-69-55 sts, insert 1 marker in next st and work the last 41-41-41-55-55-69 sts on round. Then work in stockinette st in the round (move the markers upwards when working).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 11 cm / 4½'', dec 2 sts at every marker – READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every 4th round, 11-12-13-14-14-15 more times (= 12-13-14-15-15-16 dec in total) = 156-176-196-216-244-264 sts.

Nici Van Eeden 19.05.2017 - 23:25:

Hi, I would like to find out how the number of stitches for diagram A4 works. I am making the smallest size and can't get my diagram to work out with the 120 st count. The last pattern on the diagram is only half a diagram (8sts) and then I can't do the decrease or the yarn over at the end. Please advice!

DROPS Design 22.05.2017 kl. 09:34:

Dear Mrs Van Eeden, A.4 is worked over 16 sts, you will repeat the 16 sts in A.4 a total of 7 times, then work the first 8 sts once again: 7x 16 + 8 = 120 sts. Happy knitting!

Hur stikkes siste 2 runder av mønster A1?

DROPS Design 23.01.2015 kl. 15:52:

Hei Christin. 7 r, ta 1 m løs av p som om den skulle strikkes rett, 2 rett sammen, løft den løse m over, 13 r, ta 1 m løs av p som om den skulle strikkes rett, 2 rett sammen, løft den løse m over, 6 r (1 gentagelse af A.1 i bredden). Raekke 4: 28 vr (1 gentagelse af A.1 i bredden). Du har altsaa minsket fra 36 til 28 m per gentagelse af A.1.

Synnøve Aandalen 15.10.2014 - 11:12:

I mønstret a1 er det i andre omgang åpent rom etter 16 masker vrangt. Hva skal jeg gjøre her...?

DROPS Design 17.10.2014 kl. 15:23:

Det masker du har minsket på omgangen under. Derfor er det ingen masker der.

Liv Christiansen 21.07.2014 - 10:56:

149-12 I omgangen etter felling til 44 masker står det at neste omgang skal strikkes tilbake på samme måte. Gjør man det blir det 38 masker igjen på pinnen. Legger man sammen maskene på neste pinne er det 32 maser rille, vrangbord og mønster A1. Hvordan skal dette gjøres?

DROPS Design 21.07.2014 kl. 14:05:

Hej Liv. Jeg forstår ikke helt hvad du mener? A.1 strikkes først i mønstret og hvor feller du til 44 m? Hvis du kan beskrive lidt bedre hvor du har problemer, så skal jeg prøve at hjælpe dig :-) tak.

Megan 10.05.2014 - 07:16:

Can you please advise what are the measurements for each size? I would like to make this for my daughter. She has a 97 cm chest, and 80 cm waist. Thank you.

DROPS Design 10.05.2014 kl. 09:48:

Dear Megan, you will find at the very bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measures in cm for each size. They are taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment she likes the shape to find the matching size. Happy knitting!

Siv 06.12.2013 - 20:38:

Där ska man inte sticka någonting!

Carolina 05.12.2013 - 13:08:

Hur ska man sticka i mönster A.1 där det i mönstret inte finns någon ruta?

DROPS Design 10.12.2013 kl. 09:15:

Du minskade m på varvet under, därför har du ingen m/ingen ruta varvet över!

Simona Bisighini 05.06.2013 - 11:45:

Approfitto della vostra cortesia per chiedere un'ulteriore precisazione sulla lettura del diagramma. Si legge sempre da destra a sinistra sia per i ferri di andata dispari che per quelli di ritorno pari? Grazie nuovamente.

DROPS Design 05.06.2013 kl. 23:53:

Buonasera. Il diagramma si legge da destra verso sinistra sui ferri di andata (sul diritto del lavoro) e da sinistra verso destra sui ferri di ritorno (rovescio del lavoro). Buon lavoro!

Simona Bisighini 03.06.2013 - 20:15:

Buongiorno, sono alle prime armi e volevo chiedere un'informazione sulla lettura del grafico che rappresenta il motivo. Come si legge? Dal basso verso l'alto e da sinistra a destra? Nello schema A1 (ad es.) mancano dei quadratini: è solo una resa grafica o implica una lavorazione particolare delle maglie? Grazie in anticipo per la risposta.

DROPS Design 03.06.2013 kl. 23:10:

Buon giorno. Il grafico si legge dal basso verso l'alto, da destra verso sinistra. I quadratini che mancano sono le maglie diminuite; p.es nella riga 1 vengono diminuite 4 m; nella riga 2 ci sono 4 quadratini in meno. La disposizione dei quadratini consente la corretta esecuzione del motivo. Ci riscriva se trova altre difficoltà. Buon lavoro.

Aud Olsen 05.04.2013 - 16:32:

Hei. Lurer på hvordan jeg skal felle når jeg har kommet opp til ermhullene på kjolen, skal jeg strikke to og to sammen for å få felt 5m på hver side av merketrådene? Nydelig kjole foresten :)

DROPS Design 09.04.2013 kl. 21:35:

Du skal lukke af paa normal maade, ikke strikke sammen:
