At beg of every row with tr work 5 ch to turn with. These 5 ch do not replace first tr.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

Worked back and forth, top down.

Work 42-44-44-47-47-49 loose ch (incl 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 4 mm with Muskat. Turn and work as follows: Work 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook (= 1 dc + 1 ch to turn with), work 1 dc in each of the next 2-4-4-2-2-4 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 6-6-6-7-7-7 more times, work 1 dc in each of the remaining 2 ch = 33-35-35-37-37-39 dc. Turn and work pattern as follows: Work A.1 over the first 11 dc, A.2 (= 2 dc) 6-7-7-8-8-9 times in width, A.3 over the remaining 10 dc - READ CROCHET TIP! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When diagram A.1 to A.3 have been worked vertically, continue pattern and inc the same way until 13-14-14-15-16-17 rows have been worked in total. There are now 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr/ch on row. Inc in each side of A.1 and A.3 is now done but lace pattern continue to decrease inwards into a tip mid front and work as follows: Work 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (incl 5 ch to turn with), turn and work as follows: Work 1 tr in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-6-7-8 more times, continue pattern as before over the 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr, then work 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (incl 5 ch to turn with). Turn and work as follows: Work 1 tr in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 tr in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip 1 ch, work 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-6-7-8 more times, continue pattern as before over the 71-77-77-81-85-85 tr, then work 1 tr in each of the remaining tr on row = 107-119-131-145-157-171 sts tr/ch.
Continue with 1 tr in every tr and continue to dec lace pattern mid front into a tip. When 4 ch-spaces remain, finish pattern as shown in diagram A.4. Then work 1 tr in every tr until piece measures 24-26-28-30-32-34 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Fasten off.

Fold the outermost 2 cm in each side in on the back of top and sew small stitches through both layers to make a tunnel to thread the tie through.

Work 1 loose tie as follows: Work ch with Muskat on hook size 4 mm until the tie measures 140-150-160-170-180-190 cm, turn and work 1 sl st in every ch but make sure that the sl sts are not worked tighter than ch. Fasten off. Work another tie the same way.

Beg from RS and thread one of the end on tie through outermost hole, around tr and through the other hole (= 2 tie ends out towards RS). Adjust tie so that ends are the same length, then thread the 2 ends through loop on WS and tighten. Repeat in the other side. Then place ties in a cross on the back before threading them through curtain hem - see illustration. Fasten top by making a knot.

Czy podane wymiary gotowej robótki są podane po naciągnięciu czy tak luźno? Mam problem z dostosowaniem rozmiaru

Julie Wilhelmina Nilssen 01.06.2018 - 16:01:

Hei! Det kan hende jeg bare ikke ser det, men hva er målene for størrelsene i denne toppen?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:29:

Hej Julie, jo du finder alle toppens mål i måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Laura F. 16.05.2018 - 10:39:

Wie arbeite ich an den Rückenteilen denn nun weiter nach der ersten Reihe? Lasse ich durchgehend bis zur gewünschten Länge alle 4 Maschen, 1 M. Aus oder nur in der ersten Reihe?

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 11:32:

Liebe Laura, nur bei der 1. Reihe wird 1 Lm auf beiden Seiten (in die neuen Lm auf beiden Seiten) gelassen: 1 Stb in die 6. Lm ab der Nadel, dann je 1 Stb in die nächste Lm, * 1 Lm überspringen, je 1 Stb in die nächsten 4 Lm *, von *-* noch weitere 3 x wdh, dann häkeln Sie wie zuvor weiter (mit A.1, A.2 und A.3) und dann 27-30-37-44-49-57 Lm häkeln (einschl. 5 Lm zum Wenden) (= für das Rückenteil). Am Anfang nächster Reihe werden Sie wieder Lm überspringen und dann weiter wie zuvor häkeln. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Laura F. 16.05.2018 - 01:30:

Wenn ich am Rückenteil arbeite, gehe ich dann immer so vor wie in der ersten R., also nach 4 Stb. eine Lm auslassen? Ich kann leider mit der Angabe "weiter im Muster wie zuvor über die 71 Stb." nichts anfangen, wie gehe ich denn nun genau vor? Wann fange ich an 1 Stb in jedes Stb zu häkeln?

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 09:53:

Liebe Laura F., über die 71 Stb häkeln Sie A.1 bis A.3 wie zuvor weiter, und dann wird A.4 über die letzten 4 L-Bögen gearbeitet. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Bonjour, je ne comprend pas très bien ce passage: "Continuer ainsi: crocheter 27-30-37-44-49-57 ml (y compris 5 ml pour tourner)" J'ai fait comme la vidéo mais il y a 2 rangs d'avance. Donc ce n'est pas égale. Puis "sauter 1 ml, 1 B dans chacune des 4 B suivantes*" c'est des ml et non des B non?

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 09:27:

Bonjour Émilie, vous avez raison, vous devez faire 1 B dans chacune des 4 ml suivantes (celles des 27-57 ml de la chaînette). Une correction sera faite. Bon crochet!

Aracely 30.04.2017 - 19:00:

Perdón pero me gustaría poder aprender a leer los patrones porque no termino de comprender, con los tutoriales voy muy bien pero luego al leer me pierdo, que quiere decir Trabajar flojo 42-44-44-47-47-49 ))) mi duda está en que significa la secuencia de números? Centímetros? Puntos? Y porque algunos repiten? Ej: 6-7-7-8-8-9, espero me puedan ayudar y desde ya muchas gracias por su trabajo

DROPS Design 04.05.2017 kl. 08:22:

Hola Aracely. Los patrones de Drops están explicados para las tallas S-XXXL. Los 42-44-44-47-47-49 p.de cad. (puntos de cadeneta) significa que para la talla S hay que montar 42 puntos, para la talla M - 44 puntos etc. Si en las explicaciones solo hay un número, significa que es igual para todas las tallas. Las abreviaturas las puedes consultar aquí: https://www.garnstudio.com/glossary.php?langf=es&langt=en

Shaina 10.12.2016 - 11:25:

At the very beginning am I supposed to skip a chain or am I supposed to chain one and continue or both?

DROPS Design 12.12.2016 kl. 09:10:

Dear Shaina, at the very beg you are crocheting more chains that you will have sc on 1st row, ie crochet 42-44-44-47-47-49 ch (fundation chain), then crochet 1st row as explained skipping some chains evenly to get 33-35-35-37-37-39 sc on 1st row. Happy crocheting!

Susan T. 25.08.2016 - 21:04:

Do you have a pattern to line the front of this because you can see through the cup part of the halter?

DROPS Design 26.08.2016 kl. 10:43:

Dear Susan T, we do not have any pattern to line, ie no sewing pattern - you are welcome to ask the store where you bought your yarn, they may have tips & advices for you. Happy crocheting!

Stacey Meyer 15.08.2016 - 06:17:

Hello! This is a lovely detailed pattern and I so appreciate all the assistance you've provided. I'm sorry if I've overlooked it but I can't for the gauge guide for this pattern. I just want to be sure I'm not crocheting too loosely or too tight. Thank you!

DROPS Design 15.08.2016 kl. 11:21:

Dear Mrs Meyer, tension may differ with every crocheter, so remember to adjust the crochet hook size to that you get the stated gauge ie 18 dc x 9 rows = 4'' x 4'' (10 x 10 cm). Happy crocheting!
