PLAY SUIT:
Piece is worked back and forth in 2 parts, bottom up, up to after leg opening. Then work piece in the round before dividing at the waist and finishing front piece back and forth on needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 14-16-18 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Cotton Merino and working stocking st back and forth. AT THE SAME TIME cast on 2 new sts at the end of every row 9 times in total in each side = 50-52-54 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 6 cm. Put piece aside and work front piece.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 14-16-18 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Cotton Merino and working stocking st back and forth for 5 cm. Now cast on 6 new sts at the end of every row 3 times in total in each side = 50-52-54 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 7 cm.

BODY:
Slip sts from front and back piece on to same circular needle = 100-104-108 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side (= 50-52-54 sts between markers) - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work in stocking st in the round - beg of round = the side. When piece measures 2-3-5 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 2 cm 4 times in total = 84-88-92 sts. When piece measures 10-11-14 cm from markers (piece measures approx. 17-18-21 cm from cast-on edge), work an elevation at the back as follows: K as before over the first 42-44-46 m, i.e. until 2nd marker (= front piece – NOTE: Do not work elevation over these sts), K until 5 sts remain before marker at beg of round, turn and P until 5 sts remain until marker in the other side, turn piece. K until 10 sts remain before marker, turn piece and P until 10 sts remain before marker in the other side, turn piece. K until 15 sts remain before marker, turn piece and P until 15 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn piece and K back to beg of round (= the side).
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and K 1 round over all sts AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 80-88-96 - NOTE: To avoid holes at every turn pick up loop between 2 sts and K twisted tog with next st on needle. Then work rib as follows: K 1, * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain on round and finish with P 2 and K 1. When rib measures 1½ cm, work an lace edge as follows: K 1, * P 2 tog, 1 YO, K 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain on round, finish with P 2 tog, 1 YO and K 1. Work until 1 round remain before rib measures 3 cm. Work next round as follows: Work rib over the first 40-44-48 sts (= front piece), LOOSELY cast off the next 40-44-48 sts with K over K and P over P (= back piece).

When piece measures 7-9-11 cm from marker (adjust so that next row is from RS), work 3 ridges back and forth over all sts. Work next row as follows from RS: K 8 and slip these sts on 1 stitch holder for shoulder strap, cast off the next 10-14-20 sts and K the last 8 sts (= shoulder strap).

Se puede obtener el patrón del pantalón pero con agujas rectas? Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 18:45:

Hola Ana. No hacemos patrones personalizados.

Paulina Fernández 16.04.2018 - 19:58:

Muchas gracias equipo Drops por responder tan pronto. Terminé la labor y quedó estupendo!! Buena semana!!

Paulina Fernández 16.04.2018 - 02:46:

Hola equipo Drops. Estoy tejiendo el gorro y no entiendo como es la parte de ir juntando los tres (3) puntos en aguja auxiliar al inicio de cada vuelta: ¿Son en todas las vueltas (derecho y revés),? Cómo se le da la forma en punta, no se hacen disminuciones? Y al finalizar el tejido, cuando tengo que cortar el hilo, si también tejo los puntos centrales junto a los del gancho auxiliar, cuál es la finalidad de separarlos antes? Estaré atenta a su respuesta. Gracias.

DROPS Design 15.04.2018 kl. 20:20:

Hola Paulina, el método de deslizar los puntos a una aguja auxiliar en vez de cerrarlos para disminuir es un método para dar forma curvada a una labor, al igual que las filas acortadas y las disminuciones. Se trabaja por el lado derecho en un extremo y por el lado revés en el otro extremo.

Sara Tome 26.02.2018 - 20:57:

I'm sorry but I'm not understanding how to start the jumpsuit... Can you please let me know what part of the text comes first? Thank you very much

DROPS Design 27.02.2018 kl. 08:44:

Dear Mrs Tome, start reading with PLAYSUIT, working first BACK PIECE, then FRONT PIECE, then BODY slipping all sts from back and front piece together on the same circular needle, then finish front piece separately. Happy knitting!

Narda Van Leeuwen 26.10.2016 - 11:34:

Beste Drops design, ik heb een vraag over de laatste zin van de ronding in het achterpand: 'Keer het werk en brei recht terug tot het begin van de nld (= de zijkant).' Moet je hier ook rekening houden met gaatjes bij de keerpunten? En je eindigt dan bij de linker zijkant van het achterpand, toch?

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 12:31:

Hoi Narda. Als je vindt dat je gaatjes te groot zijn bij de keerpunten, dan kan je eventueel een st opnemen van de overgang en deze samenbreien met de eerstvolgende st om de gaatjes kleiner te maken. En je breit aan het eind terug naar het begin van de nld (markeerder linker zijkant).

Ida 18.02.2016 - 09:33:

Hei! ER det mulig å strikke denne i et reint babyullgarn i stedet for blandinggsgarnet Merino Cotton? Jeg skal strikke den største størrelsen. Mvh Ida

DROPS Design 19.02.2016 kl. 13:50:

Hej. Denna är stickad i ett garn ur garngrupp B så du kan byta ut garnet mot ett annat i samma garngrupp, läs mer om detta här. Lycka till!

Rehan 18.01.2016 - 11:55:

The diagram has problem with symbols. Please recheck the diagram

DROPS Design 18.01.2016 kl. 15:22:

Dear Mrs Rehan, can you please explain more so that we can check? Thank you!
