Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST over all sts – see explanation above, then work A.1 over all sts (= 14-15-18-19-21-23 repetitions in width). When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, 168-180-216-228-252-276 sts remain on round and piece measures approx. 26 cm / 10 1/4''. K 1 round while adjusting the no of sts to 168-182-210-224-252-280.

The 1st and 2nd marker is on front piece, and 3rd and 4th marker is on back piece. Move the markers upwards when working. On next round, dec 1 st at every marker – Read DECREASE TIP = 4 sts dec on round. NOTE: No of sts mid front and mid back is the same, dec in side sts. Repeat dec every 6 cm / 2 3/8'' 4 more times = 148-162-190-204-232-260 sts. The piece now measures approx. 50 cm / 19 3/4'' in all sizes. Remove the first 4 markers. Insert 1 new marker in each side; 1 at the beg of round and one after 74-81-95-102-116-130 sts (= sides). When piece measures 56 cm / 22'' in all sizes, inc 1 st on each side of each marker (= 4 sts inc), repeat inc every 4-4½-4½-5-5-5½ cm / 1½"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-2"-2"-2 1/4" 3 more times = 164-178-206-220-248-276 sts. When piece measures 71-72-73-74-75-76 cm / 28"-28½"-28 3/4"-29"-29½"-30", bind off for armholes in each side as follows: bind off the first 4 sts on round, work until 4 sts remain before the other marker, bind off the next 8 sts, work until 4 sts remain, bind off these 4 sts.

Inc every 3½-3-3-2½-2-2 cm / 1 1/4"-1"-1"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4" 11-12-13-14-16-17 more times = 69-73-77-81-87-91 sts. Work inc sts in stockinette st.

Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 270-292-328-350-390-426 sts. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body (= 4 markers).

Hej - jeg skal til at strikke denne kjole Blue September til mit voksne barnebarn, men hun vil have kjolen helt glat uden mønsteret. Da indtagene jo er glemt i mønsteret i skørtet, har jeg lidt problemer med at finde ud af, hvordan jeg får taget ind, så det bliver pænt? Kan en hjælpe mig? Eller måske findes der en anden opskrift, men hun har jo købt garnet, så det må passe.\\r\\nPå forhånd tak Bedstemor

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 07:59:

Hei Annette. Om du hadde strikket etter mønster hadde du strikket A.1 nederst på skjørtet, her er det lagt inn fellinger på omgang 37 og 59 - du kan se at det ikke er noen kast på sidene av fellingen (= 2 masker felt per A.1). Om du strikker i glattstrikk kan du likevel følge disse fellingene. Du feller altså 2 masker per rapport av A.1 på omgang 39 og 57, og det er 14-15-18-19-21-23 rapporter av A.1 i bredden. Videre kan du felle som forklart i oppskriften. God fornøyelse

Thank you :) Have a great weekend! and thank you for the amazing pattern

Oana 21.10.2016 - 11:44:

Hi there, I have a question regarding the cast off bit. I did cast off as per the pattern but my stitch remains in the middle of the 8 cast off stitches. So basically when I will need to slip the sleeve on the same circular needles as the dress I am not sure how to continue from there. Shouldn't the cast off start in the previous row and do 4 cast off before marker so that working stitch will remain just before the 8 cast off and not in the middle? Thank you.

DROPS Design 21.10.2016 kl. 14:15:

Dear Mrs Oana, you can cast off the first 4 sts at beg of round + the 4 sts at the end of round, then pull thread through last st - or cast off the last 4 sts + the first 4 sts on round. Happy knitting!

Hi and thanks for anothwr wonderful project! After the first dec on A1, the next round of pattern is on the ws. Meaning instead of k2tog i need to p2tog, and instead of ssk, it's ppk? Thanks in advance, a.

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 13:06:

Dear Ariane, A.1 is worked in the round, so that all rows with dec and yos will be worked from RS. Happy knitting!

Hoi, nog een vraagje, kleedje is bijna af maar de onderkant krult om door de ribbelsteek. Is dit op te lossen? Alvast bedankt voor je antwoord

DROPS Design 08.12.2015 kl. 16:39:

Hoi Karin. Was de jurk volgens de aanwijzingen en laat hem plaat drogen, zorg dan ook voor om de rand in vorm te brengen en laten drogen. Is dat niet genoeg kan je de rand strijken (met een theedoek tussen)

Karolien 03.12.2015 - 12:25:

Hallo Is er een mogelijkheid om de hals anders te breien? De voorkant zit nl. even hoog als de achterkant, terwijl de achterkant hoger hoort te zitten en de voorkant lager. Alvast bedankt voor het antwoord. Groetjes van Karolien

DROPS Design 09.12.2015 kl. 13:19:

Hoi Karolien. Natuurlijk, kijk eventueel op onze site voor het soort hals die je leuk vindt en pas het aan voor dit patroon.

Karin 26.11.2015 - 16:57:

Hartelijk bedankt, ik begrijp nu dat de minderingen niet naast mekaar, maar op een aantal steken van mekaar gebeuren. Deels op het achterpand en deels op het voorpand. Nog eens bedankt voor uw snelle reactie.

Karin 25.11.2015 - 20:18:

Hallo, Een vraagje. Volgens de uitleg mag er middenvoor en middenachter niet geminderd worden, enkel aan de zijkanten. Maar toch moet ik aan elke markeerder 1 steek minderen. Omdat er 4 markeerders zijn, denk ik toch dat er dan toch middenvoor en middenachter geminderd wordt. Ook tip voor het minderen zegt dat er aan elke markeerder 1 steek moet geminderd worden. Help!!! Ik zou graag verder breien. Alvast bedankt

DROPS Design 26.11.2015 kl. 15:48:

Hoi Karin. Ik zal het proberen uitleggen. Je hebt 4 markeerders; 2 in het voorpand en 2 in het achterpand. Je mindert 1 st bij elke markeerder. Deze st moet alleen worden geminderd richting de zijkant en niet richting het midden. Dus als je breit begin je bij eerst markeerder voorpand, hier minder je VOOR en bij de tweede markeerder voorpand minder je NA de markeerder. Hetzelfde op het achterpand. Is het nu duidelijk wat er wordt bedoeld?

Karolien 06.11.2015 - 13:37:

Hallo! Is het mogelijk om dit jurkje op 2 nld. te breien ipv. rondbreinld? Hoe doe ik dat dan met de minderingen in het midden van het jurkje? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 06.11.2015 kl. 15:36:

Hoi Karolien. Het is in sommige gevallen mogelijk om het patroon aan te passen naar rechte naalden, lees meer hier. Bij deze jurk zou ik aanraden om gewoon te breien zoals beschreven voor het mooiste resultaat.
