GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

See diagrams A.1 to A.3. See diagram for correct size.

Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes. Repeat inc alternately on right and left side of the four markers.

Work until 4 sts remain before marker and work: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, K 4, K 2 tog = 2 sts dec. Repeat in the other side.

Worked in the round, top down.

Cast on 126-132-138-140-146-150 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Insert a marker at the beg of the round. Work 1 round in stockinette st while inc 4-8-6-4-7-12 sts evenly = 130-140-144-144-153-162 sts. Then work 0-0-0-0-2-2 more rounds in stockinette st. On next round work pattern A.1 - see diagram for correct size, 13-14-16-16-17-18 repetitions on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, piece measures 11-11-12-12-13-13 cm / 4 3/8''-4 3/8''-4¾''-4¾''-5 1/8''-5 1/8'' and there are 234-252-288-320-340-360 sts on round. Now insert 2 markers in piece which marks transition for pattern continued down the back. Work the first 12-12-12-14-14-14 sts and insert a marker here. This is now beg of round. Then insert the second marker after 49-49-49-53-53-53 sts without working them first. Now work pattern - see diagram for correct size, as follows: Work A.2 (= 49-49-49-53-53-53 sts). NOTE: Pattern in A.2 should fit over pattern A.1. I.e. st with arrow in diagram A.2 should fit over st with arrows in diagram A.1. Then work in stockinette st over the remaining sts on round AT SAME TIME inc 20-26-14-14-30-42 sts evenly over sts in stockinette st = 254-278-302-334-370-402 sts.
Work next round as follows: Work pattern as before over the first 49-49-49-53-53-53 sts, 14-17-22-25-32-38 sts in stockinette st, slip the next 50-56-58-64-68-72 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts, i.e. 4 new sts on each side of marker), work the next 77-83-93-103-117-129 sts, slip the next 50-56-58-64-68-72 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 new sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these sts, i.e. 4 new sts on each side of marker), work the remaining 14-17-22-25-32-38 sts on round. There are now 85-91-101-111-125-137 sts for front and back piece = 170-182-202-222-250-274 sts in total.

NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue pattern on the back as before, and work in stockinette st over the remaining sts on round. NOTE: Continue in stockinette st on the back when the pattern has been worked.
When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 st on each side of marker in each side - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 5-5½-5½-6-6½-7 cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2 1/4"-2 3/8"-2½"-2 3/4" 3 more times = 154-166-186-206-234-258 sts. When piece measures 24-26-27-29-30-32 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-10½"-11½"-11 3/4"-12½", insert 4 new markers in piece, beg from marker in the right side:
NOTE: Remove the 2 markers on each side of the pattern on the back piece first! Work 16-17-19-21-24-27 sts, insert 1st marker, work 45-49-55-61-69-75 sts, insert 2nd marker, work 16-17-19-21-24-27 sts, marker in left side is here, work 16-17-19-21-24-27 sts, insert 3rd marker, work 45-49-55-61-69-75 sts, insert 4th marker, work the remaining 16-17-19-21-24-27 sts until marker in the right side. Move the markers upwards when working. On next round inc 1 st before all markers (= 6 sts inc) – see INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 6th round 1 more time, every 4th round 12-12-12-12-9-8 times, every 6th round 2-2-2-2-4-4 times = 250-262-282-302-324-342 sts. When piece measures 62-64-65-67-68-70 cm / 24½"-25 1/4"-25½"26½"-26 3/4"-27½"', inc 2-8-6-4-0-0 sts evenly = 252-270-288-306-324-342 sts. Then work pattern A.3 (= 18 sts) 14-15-16-17-18-19 repetitions in width. When entire A,3 has been worked vertically, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 2 ridges and bind off.

Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 (= 50-56-58-64-68-72 sts). Pick up 1 st in each of the 8 new sts cast on under sleeve = 58-64-66-72-76-80 sts. Work 1 round in stockinette st while dec 4 sts evenly = 54-60-62-68-72-76 sts. Continue with 2 rounds in stockinette st. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work 2 ridges. Bind off. Repeat on the edge of the other sleeve.

Jag har gjort oket nu och undrar om ryggen stickas separat på rundstickan, fram o tillbaks, för att sedan stickas ihop med framstycket? Var i mönstret står det beskrivet?

Suzanne Hein-Hoffmann 12.01.2019 - 09:59:

Bei der Anleitung habe ich Probleme mit den Diagrammen, wie wende ich diese auf meine Arbeit an?

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 09:37:

Liebe Frau Hein-Hoffmann, das Kleid wird in der Runde gestrickt, dh Sie werden nicht abwechslungsweise hin und Rückreihen stricken sonder nur hinreihen. Diagramme lesen Sie bei alle Runde rechts nach links. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Cassie 11.07.2018 - 07:43:

There is no dusty pink anymore , is the power pink the same colour as the dusty pink?

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 07:58:

Dear Cassie, yes, always follow the colour number, the colour name can have been adjusted inbetween. Happy knitting!

Carmen 02.06.2018 - 03:12:

Tengo una duda.en el tip para aumentar dice que se haga alternativamente sobre los 4 mp pero hay dos más los correspondientes a los laterales? Esos como se aumentan?Gracias por atenderme

DROPS Design 03.06.2018 kl. 10:23:

Hola Carmen. Los aumentos se hacen en los 4 marcapuntos del canesú. Los 2 marcapuntos laterales son necesarios para hacer más tarde las disminuciones para entallar el vestido.

Oksana 10.05.2018 - 18:49:

Please explain this parts of the description: ...insert 4 new markers in piece... and then - On next round inc 1 st before all markers (= 6 sts inc). Question: 1st ince before 1st marker, 2-d inc- before 2d marker...4th marker - Fourth inc. Please specify where the other 2 inc are to be done. Thanks!

DROPS Design 11.05.2018 kl. 07:54:

Hi Oksana, You have 2 markers from when you worked the yoke and the 4 new markers. So you increase in front of all 6 of these markers, Happy knitting!

Satu 08.04.2018 - 19:29:

Kaarroke: Neulo ensimmäiset 12 s ja kiinnitä 1 merkki tähän. Krs:n vaihtumiskohta on jatkossa tässä! Kiinnitä sitten toinen merkki seuraavien 49s:n jälkeen (neulomatta s:t). Jatka neulomalla mallineuletta .... Seuraava krs neulotaan näin: Neulo ensimmäisillä 49s:lla mallineuletta kuten aiemmin....Mutta kun ensin käskettiin ensimmäiset 49 silmukkaa neulomatta ja vasta sen jälkeen neulomaan mallineuletta. Ja tuossa toisessa kohdassa sanotaan, että neulo kuten aiemmin...

Ik zou het jurkje graag iets verlengen, waar in het patroon zou ik dit het beste kunnen doen?

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 09:56:

Hoi Claartje, Dit kun je het beste aan het einde in het rokgedeelte doen, nadat je alle meerderingen hebt gemaakt en voordat je A.3 breit. Je kunt er ook voor kiezen wat meer naalden tussen de meerderingen te doen.

Frederic Tallaron 28.07.2017 - 18:02:

Bonjour, concernant le modèle de la robe tricot ajourée , est ce que d'après le schéma A1 du modèle en M les 1ères augmentations se font t'elles sur un rang envers ou un rang endroit et plusieurs fois sur le même rang, car je suis un peu perdue , merci d'avance

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 11:13:

Bonjour Mr Tallaron, la robe se tricote en rond, les augmentations vont se faire sur un tour en mailles endroit. Tricotez le diagramme en le lisant de gauche à droite tous les tours, et augmentez dans chaque diagramme comme indiqué - placer un marqueur entre chaque A.1 peut vous aider à bien visualiser les augmentations de chaque A.1 et votre nombre de mailles à chaque fois. Bon tricot!

Ein sehr schönes Kleid, das ich bald fertig habe. Ein Kompliment für Ihre Seite, es gibt hier so schöne Anleitungen, dass ich mich oft nicht entscheiden kann, was ich als nächste machen möchte.

Dang 06.03.2017 - 10:21:

C'est clair pour moi maintenant. Merci beaucoup ! Excellente journée à vous !!
