----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 108-116-124-136-152-168 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with Alpaca Bouclé. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work in stockinette st. When piece measures 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm / 5½''-6''-6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½'', insert a marker in the piece, AT THE SAME TIME work as follows: Work 1 st in stockinette st, A.1a (= 8 sts), 36-40-44-50-58-66 sts in stockinette st, A.2a (= 8 sts), 1 st in stockinette st (= back piece), insert 1 marker, 1 st in stockinette st, A.1a (= 8 sts), 36-40-44-50-58-66 sts in stockinette st, A.2a (= 8 sts), 1 st in stockinette st (= front piece). NOTE: Diagrams A.1a/A.2a are displaced 1 st towards mid front and mid back every other round. Continue pattern like this. When A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time vertically, work A.1b instead of A.1a and A.2b instead of A.2a. Diagrams A.1b and A.2b are repeated until finished measurements, AT THE SAME TIME continue eyelet rows already begun. When piece measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm / 8¼''-8¾''-9''-9½''-9¾''-10¼'', finish each part separately.
Now divide the piece between each marker.


BACK PIECE:
= 54-58-62-68-76-84 sts. Work A.1/A.2 and in stockinette st as before AT THE SAME TIME cast on 3 sts in each side of piece at the end of the next 2 rows = 60-64-68-74-82-90 sts on needle. Work the 3 new sts in each side of piece in GARTER ST - see explanation above, until finished measurements. When piece measures 27-29-30-32-33-35 cm / 10½"-11½"-11 3/4"-12½"-13"-13 3/4" (adjust so that next row is from RS), work 3 ridges over the middle 24-24-24-26-26-26 sts (= 18-20-22-24-28-32 sts in each side in stockinette st, A.1/A.2 and edge sts as before). On next row from RS bind off the middle 18-18-18-20-20-20 sts for neck (= 21-23-25-27-31-35 sts remain on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue in garter st over the 3 sts towards the neck and edge, stockinette st and A.1/A.2 as before AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS dec 1 st after/before the 3 sts in garter st in the neck – see DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec 1 more time (= 2 times in total) = 19-21-23-25-29-33 sts remain on needle. Work as before until piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19''. Bind off.

FRONT PIECE:
Work front piece as back piece until piece measures 23-25-26-28-29-31 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-11"-11½"-12 1/4" (adjust so that next row is from RS). Work 3 ridges over the middle 18 sts (= 21-23-25-28-32-36 sts in each side), in stockinette st and A1/A.2 and edge sts as before. On next row from RS bind off for neck as follows: bind off the middle 12 sts (= 24-26-28-31-35-39 sts on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue in garter st over the 3 sts towards the neck and edge, stockinette st and A.1/A.2 as before AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS dec 1 st after the 3 sts in garter st in the neck – see DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec on every row from RS 4-4-4-5-5-5 more times = 19-21-23-25-29-33 sts remain on needle. Work as before until piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19''.

Bonjour, Facile et rapide à faire ce joli petit top. J'ai acheté une pelote en plus car je le voulais plus long (51 cm pour la taille M) et moins décolleté dans le dos. Je l'ai tricoté  avec des aiguilles n° 7. Merci pour ce beau modèle :-)

Anne Maach Schrøder 07.05.2017 - 14:31:

Ved normal strikkefasthed bliver denne model for stor med p8. Brug istedet p7 og lav den 10 cm længere før udtag til ærmer. Så svarer den til foto. Mvh FruStrik

Marja De Leeuw 30.03.2015 - 16:21:

Ik ben geen ervaren breister... Maar in het patroon wordt gesproken over "lijf" en voor- en achterpand. Moet ik hieruit opmaken dat ik het patroon hetzij op een rondbreinaald brei (lijf), hetzij op gewone naalden (voorpand/achterpand)? En ribbelsteek wordt eenmaal omschreven als recht heen, averecht terug (op de rondbreinaald) en daarna als recht heen recht terug.... Ik nie begrijp nie...

DROPS Design 30.03.2015 kl. 17:03:

Beste Marja, je begint met het lijf, in de rondte zoals in het patroon staat. Dan staat er op een gegeven moment: "Splits het werk bij een hoogte van 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm en brei elk deel apart verder – verdeel het werk tussen elke markeerder." Je hebt nu twee delen, een voorpand en een achterpand die je beiden apart verder breit, zodat je armsgaten krijgt - je breit nu heen en weer. Succes!

What is the difficulty of this pattern? The pattern seems rather confusing to read. I'd say my level is e.intermediat.

DROPS Design 30.06.2014 kl. 08:44:

Dear Joyce, you will find under the "video" tab some videos related to this pattern. For any personnal assistance, do not hesitate to contact the store where you bought your yarn or any knitting forum/group (see Ravelry). Happy knitting!

Jeg syntes også den er for kort, så jeg tog masker op forneden og strikkede nedad ca 10cm. Det blev rigtig pænt

W.visser 03.03.2014 - 15:44:

Dag, Waarom staat bovenin,bij veel patronen overigens, dat je een rondbreinaald 8mm nodig hebt en dan volgt in het patroon: zet op met pen 5 mm. Bij voorbaat dank voor uw reactie, met vriendelijke groet, Willemijn Visser

DROPS Design 04.03.2014 kl. 15:03:

Hoi W. Visser. Deze trui wordt in de rondte gebreid op de rondbreinaald. Maar vaak wordt er ook heen en weer gebreid op de rondbreinld omdat je veel meer st kwijt kan op deze en in Scandinavië (het zijn van oorsprong Noorse patronen) wordt er vrijwel altijd op rondbreinld gebreid.

En rigtig sød bluse. Billedet snyder for den viser ikke hvor kort blusen i virkeligheden er.

Elinor B Hansen 24.02.2014 - 14:06:

Jeg strikkene denne model på pind 7 den blev meget kort og bred men passer fint på overdelen, kan den strikkes i bomuld og på tynder pinde.

DROPS Design 01.03.2014 kl. 01:16:

Denna modell är lite kort o bred, kontrollera måtten i måttskissen i oppskriften o jämför dina mått där. Du kan også sticka denna modellen i Bomull-Lin eller Paris, storleken på pinnen beror på vad du behöver för att få riktig strikkefasthet, det ska vara 12 m x 17 p glstrikk på 10 x 10 cm för att få målen i målskissen.

Elinor B Hansen 22.02.2014 - 17:23:

Jeg må altid bruge en nr. Større pinde, men til denne model måtte jeg ned i nr. Er der en forklaring på det.
