See diagram A.1.

Inc on each side of 2 K sts by working 1 YO. On next round work YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st) to avoid holes. Work the inc sts into rib, i.e. K the first 2 inc sts, and P the next 2 sts etc.

Work until 3 sts remain before marker, work 2 sts tog (in rib), work 2 sts (marker is between these 2 sts) and then work 2 sts twisted tog (in rib).

Worked in the round, top down. Rounds start mid back.
Cast on (88) 96-104-120-128 (136-144) sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with Baby Merino.
Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid back) and 1 marker after (44) 48-52-60-64 (68-72) sts (= mid front).
Work rib from mid back as follows: K 1, * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish round with P 2 and K 1. When rib measures 4 cm / 1½'', work next round as follows: * K 1, 1 YO, P 2 tog, K 2, 1 YO, P 2 tog, K 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= edge with eyelet holes for ties).
Work 1 round in rib K 2/P 2.
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work an elevation at the back as follows: Work (7) 7-9-9-9 (9-9) sts in rib, turn, tighten yarn, work (14) 14-18-18-18 (18-18) sts in rib, turn, tighten yarn, work (20) 20-26-26-26 (26-26) sts in rib, turn, tighten yarn, work (26) 26-34-34-34 (34-34) sts in rib.
Continue like this by working (6) 6-8-8-8 (8-8) sts more on every turn until a total of (50) 50-66-66-82 (82-82) sts have been worked. Turn, continue rib with pattern A.1 in each side as follows from mid back:

Work rib as before over (19) 23-23-27-31 (31-35) sts, work A.1 over 2 K sts, P 2, A.1 over 2 K sts, work rib over (38) 38-46-54-54 (62-62) sts, work A.1 over 2 K sts, P 2, A.1 over 2 K sts, work rib over the remaining (19) 23-23-27-31 (31-35) sts = (88) 96-104-120-128 (136-144) sts on round.
Continue rib with A.1 2 times in each side until piece measures (10) 12-13-16-15 (16-17) cm / (4") 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-6 1/4"-6" (6 1/4"-6 3/4") mid front. Now inc 1 st on each side of the 2 middle sts at the front and back – SEE INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc).
Repeat inc every other round (7) 7-7-7-11 (11-11) more times (= (8) 8-8-8-12 (12-12) inc in total) = (120) 128-136-152-176 (184-192) sts.
When piece measures (15) 17-18-21-22 (23-24) cm / (6") 6 3/4"-7"-8 1/4"-8 3/4" (9"-9½") mid front (inc are now done), bind off sts for gusset as follows: Beg mid back and bind off the first (6) 6-6-6-8 (8-8) sts (bind off with K over K and P over P). Work rib until (6) 6-6-6-8 (8-8) sts before marker at the front and bind off (12) 12-12-12-16 (16-16) sts.
Work rib until (6) 6-6-6-8 (8-8) sts remain on round. Bind off.
Slip sts for one leg on a stitch holder and finish each leg separately.

= (48) 52-56-64-72 (76-80) sts. Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and continue rib and A.1 in the round as before for (1) 1-1-2-2 (2-3) cm / (½") ½"-½"-3/4"-3/4" (3/4"-1"). Finish after 4th or 8th row in A.1. Work 1 cm / ½'' more in rib without A.1.
Then loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.
The whole piece measures approx. (17) 19-20-24-25 (26-28) cm / (6 3/4") 7½"-8"-9½"-9 3/4" (10 1/4"-11"). Slip sts from the other leg back on needle and work as first leg.

Sew tog the (12) 12-12-12-16 (16-16) sts that were bound off between legs.

Cut 2 lengths off white yarn of 2.5-3.5 meters / 2.75-3.75yds each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the strands double so that they twine. Make a knot at each end.
Baste the yarn up and down through eyelet row - start and finish mid front.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K from RS, P from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= K 3, pass first st worked over the other 2 so that this st is around the last 2 sts on right needle (= 1 st dec)

Hvad betyder 'tel' ? det står i forbindelse med størrelserne overst på opskriften.

Hej Pia. Det har jeg ikke staaende. Jeg tror din Skype er koblet paa en eller anden maade til din browser, saa den laver str om til telefonnummer :)

Què save dire "re-hausse" pour le dos? Lorsqu'en tricote le pantalon vous dites de tricoter un "re-hausse pour le dos" et je ne comprends pas bien ce qu'il faut faire. merci d'avance pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 20.10.2015 kl. 14:03:

Bonjour Mme Bourgarel, la ré-hausse dos consiste à tricoter quelques rangs raccourcis sur les mailles du dos pour donner l'aisance voulue. Suivez bien les indications pour votre taille et tricotez 7-9 m à partir du milieu dos, tournez et tricotez 14-18 m, tournez, tricotez 20-26 m, tournez et tricotez 269-34 m, tournez et tricotez 6-8 m en plus à chaque rang, à chaque fois que vous tournez jusqu'à ce que vous ayez tricoté 50-82m, tournez et continuez ensuite en rond comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

Mit dem Top einfach eine super Kombination für die heißen Tage!

Emma Falch 15.10.2014 - 21:14:

Ønsker å strikke denne som lang bukse i stedet for shorts. Har dere noen tips til hvordan jeg burde strikke beina? Hvor lange bør de være og bør jeg felle noen masker underveis for å skråne beina?

DROPS Design 17.10.2014 kl. 15:00:

Hei Emma. Du kan bruke målene i lengden som på modell 25-17. Der er det også en felling som du sikkert kan tilpasse etter. Lykke til videre.

Emma Falch 08.10.2014 - 13:06:

Sammenligner med oppskriften for den kortermede genseren som passer til, der står det pinnestr 3,5 og likt antall masker per cm som i denne oppskriften hvor man bare skal bruke pinnestr 3. Det må vel være en feil?

DROPS Design 16.10.2014 kl. 16:02:

Her har du strikkefastheden i både rib og glatstrik på p nr 3,5 – eller det p.nr du skal bruge for at få 34 m x 32 p Rib på 10 x 10 cm (24 m x 32 p glatstrik på 10 x 10 cm).
