On every dc row replace first dc with 1 ch.
On every tr row replace first tr with 3 ch.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Dec 1 st by working 2 sts tog.
Work 2 dc tog as follows: Insert hook in first st and pull thread through, insert hook in next st and pull thread through, make 1 YO and pull thread through all 3 loops on hook.
Work 2 tr tog as follows: Work 1 tr in first st but wait with last pull through, work 1 tr in next st but on last pull through, pull thread through all 3 loops on hook.

To make the texture the same on the piece work it back and forth in 2 parts, and sew tog when finished.

Work 81-85-88-93-97 ch with Muskat on hook size 4 mm. Continue with 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 dc in each of the next 2-6-7-9-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 70-74-77-81-84 dc (first ch = 1 dc). Turn and work 1 dc in every st - READ CROCHET INFO! Continue with diagram A.1 (1st row = 1 tr in every dc). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When piece measures 18-20-21-22-23 cm, dec 4 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 4-4-5-5-6 cm 3 more times = 54-58-61-65-68 dc.
When piece measures 33-37-41-45-49 cm, dec for armholes in each side. This is done as follows: Work sl sts over the first 3-4-4-4-4 sts, then work until 3-4-4-4-4 sts remain, turn piece. On next row work the second and third and the 2 next to last sts in each side tog – SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec on every row 4 more times. After all dec, 38-40-43-47-50 sts remain on row.
When piece measures 38-43-47-51-55 cm, dec for neck. This is done by working each shoulder separately.
1ST SHOULDER: Work over the first 12-12-13-14-15 sts, turn and work the first 4 sts tog 2 by 2, then work the rest of row. Turn and work until 2 sts remain before neck, work these tog, turn. On next row work the first 2 sts tog, then work the rest of row. Turn, work until 2 sts remain, work these tog = 7-7-8-9-10 sts remain on shoulder. Continue A.1 until piece measures 45-50-55-60-65 cm, fasten off.
2ND SHOULDER: Work as first shoulder - make sure to start on correct row in diagram and to finish at the top with the same row as 1st shoulder.

Now work a flounce at the bottom of dress as follows:
Beg by working 1 row with dc from RS – inc evenly so that there are a total of 79-85-85-91-97 dc. Turn and continue with diagram A.2 as follows: a over the first 7 sts, then b until 6 sts remain, finish with c. Work the 4 rows in A.2 one time, the flounce measures approx. 5 cm, fasten off.

Work as front piece to and with armhole dec = 38-40-43-47-50 sts on row. Continue to work until piece measures approx. 43-48-53-58-63 cm. Then finish each shoulder separately as follows: Work 1 row over the first 9-9-10-11-12 sts, turn, work the first 2 sts tog, work the rest of row. Turn and work until 2 sts remain towards neck, work these tog. Turn, work 1 st in every st the entire row, fasten off. Repeat on the other shoulder.
Work flounce at the bottom the same way as on front piece.

Sew shoulder seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. And sew side seams edge to edge to make them less visible.

Work as follows around the armholes and neck line. 1 dc, * 2 ch, skip approx. 0.5 cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* around the entire opening and finish with 2 ch and 1 sl st in first dc at beg of round.

Work on hook size 4 mm with Muskat. Work 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: * 1 dc in ch-ring, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 3 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: Crochet as follows in every ch-space: 1 sl st, 5 tr and 1 sl st = 3 leaves.
Turn piece - work next round on the back of the flower.
ROUND 3: 1 ch, work 1 dc around first dc from 1st round, 4 ch, work 1 dc at the bottom in the mid of first leaf from 2nd round, * then 4 ch, work 1 dc around next dc from 1st round, then 4 ch, work 1 dc at the bottom in the mid of next leaf from 2nd round *, repeat from *-* until there are a total of 5 ch-spaces, finish with 4 ch and 1 sl st in first dc from from beg of round = 6 ch-spaces. Turn piece - work next round on the front of the flower.
ROUND 4: Crochet as follows in every ch-space: 1 sl st, 6 tr and 1 sl st = 6 leaves.
Fasten off. Sew the flower on to the dress.


= 1 ch
= 1 dc
= 1 tr

In working the shoulders...I understand when it says work 1st four st together, but what does "2 by 2" mean? I have googled this, but can't find an explanation.

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 06:22:

Hi Marci, This means that you work together the first 2 stitches and then work together the next 2 stitches. Happy knitting!

Marianna 27.12.2016 - 20:02:

Hallo, Begrijp ik nou goed dat ik de ruche er later aan moet haken? Ik haak pas sinds kort en snap dan niet helemaal hoe ik dat moet doen. Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 30.12.2016 kl. 12:26:

Hoi Marianna. Ja, de ruche langs de onderkant wordt na het afmaken van het voorpand gehaakt. Hetzelfde na het haken van het achterpand.

Mireille 10.02.2016 - 00:29:

Avevo del cottone da lavorare col uncinetto n.4 cosi ho scelto questo modello che comunque mi piace molto. Ho fatto il campione per essere tranquilla era giusto. Però dopo aver iniziato il lavoro e lavorato qualche giro mi sembrava troppo grande e misurando invece di 41cm ho 45cm. Mi puoi aiutare se tolgo maglie circa 2 taglie giusto? Ma per le diminuzioni come faccio? Mi puoi dare delle proporzioni? Grazie mille 😊

DROPS Design 10.02.2016 kl. 15:06:

Buongiorno Mireille, probabilmente la sua tensione è cambiata durante il lavoro, aveva lavato il campione? Se ha già finito le diminuzioni in iniziali può iniziare le diminuzioni per lo scalfo qualche giro prima. Ci riscriva se ha ancora bisogno di aiuto. Buon lavoro!

J adore facile a faire tres bien expliqué

Irena 21.11.2014 - 00:59:

The instructions for the flower are incorrect and there fore misleading. It says to do 1 sc and then chain 3. Then is tells you to repeat that a total of 3 time which gives you 4 chain spaces not 3. The original one and then the 3 repeats makes 4. Not a huge issue, just makes a bigger flower.

DROPS Design 10.03.2015 kl. 14:36:

Dear Irena, the video below should help you to work the flower as in the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Gros 24.10.2014 - 11:08:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas le passage: écouler ensemble 2 b à 1 b du bord de chaque côté Merci

DROPS Design 24.10.2014 kl. 11:40:

Bonjour Mme Gros, les diminutions des emmanchures se font ainsi: crochetez la 1ère B du rang, écoulez les 2 B suiv ens, continuez le rang jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 3 B, écoulez les 2 B suiv ens, et terminez par 1 B dans la dernière B. Répétez ce rang encore 4 fois (5 fois au total). Bon crochet!

Anne 22.09.2014 - 21:09:

Geachte mevrouw, Klopt het dat het achterpand straks 4 cm langer valt? Bij de kleinste uitvoering wordt het achterpand langer gehaakt dan het voorpand. Ook worden de schouderbandjes minder breed dan van de voorkant. Is dit correct?? Hartelijk dank voor uw reactie.

DROPS Design 24.09.2014 kl. 17:06:

Hoi Anne. Nee, zowel voor- en achterpand worden even lang en de schouderbanden even breed. Bijvoorbeeld kleinste maat: 7 stk voor beide schouders op het voorpand. Op het achterpand heb je eerst 9 stk voor elke schouder, maar mindert 2 keer (= 7 stk). Voorpand is 45 cm en achterpand haak je tot 43 cm en dan nog 3 toeren voor elk schouder (met minderingen) = ca 45 cm met de juiste haakstekenverhouding en excl. 5 cm ruches aan de onderkant.

Drops design:modelnr.r-034-bn bij de 2e toer moetje vasten haken in een stokje maar die zijn nog niet aangegeven in het patroon

DROPS Design 27.05.2014 kl. 15:59:

Hoi Nel. De vasten van toer 2 zijn inderdaad niet aangegeven in het patroon A.1, die haak je pas vanaf toer 3 (= 1 stk in elke v).

An Fierens 08.04.2014 - 22:24:

Beste, Is er een filmpje of hulp om de ruche, te maken. Dit lukt niet...

DROPS Design 09.04.2014 kl. 11:46:

Hoi An. We hebben hier helaas geen video van. Kan je misschien uitleggen wat je niet snapt en dan zal ik proberen je verder te helpen.
