----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked back and forth, top down.

Work 42-44-44-47-47-49 loose ch (includes 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Muskat. Turn and work as follows: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook (= 1 sc + 1 ch to turn with), work 1 sc in each of the next 2-4-4-2-2-4 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 sc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 6-6-6-7-7-7 more times, work 1 sc in each of the remaining 2 ch = 33-35-35-37-37-39 sc. Turn and work pattern as follows: Work A.1 over the first 11 sc, A.2 (= 2 sc) 6-7-7-8-8-9 times in width, A.3 over the remaining 10 sc - READ CROCHET TIP! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! 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 dc/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 (includes 5 ch to turn with), turn and work as follows: Work 1 dc in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 dc in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc 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 dc, then work 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (includes 5 ch to turn with). Turn and work as follows: Work 1 dc in 6th ch from hook, then work 1 dc in each of the next 1-4-6-3-3-6 ch, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc *, repeat from *-* 3-3-4-6-7-8 more times, continue pattern as before over the 71-77-77-81-85-85 dc, then work 1 dc in each of the remaining dc on row = 107-119-131-145-157-171 sts dc/ch.
Continue with 1 dc in every dc 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 dc in every dc until piece measures 24-26-28-30-32-34 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4"-12½"-13½" from cast-on edge mid front. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the outermost 2 cm / 3/4'' 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.

TIE:
Work 1 loose tie as follows: Work ch with Muskat on hook size 4 mm / G/6 until the tie measures 140-150-160-170-180-190 cm / 55"-59"-63"-67"-71"-75", 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 dc 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.

Karen A. Hillman 16.07.2016 - 20:27:

How do you even out the rows on the side panels, there's always one extra row on one side panel ???????

DROPS Design 18.07.2016 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Hillmann, this will not be visible at the end - if you rather like to get both sides the same, cut the yarn and chain number of sts required for one side, work next row on the middle panel and chain number of sts required for the other side and continue as stated. Happy crocheting!

Sandy 25.06.2016 - 01:04:

I am wondering about the purpose of the 5 chains at the beginning of each DC row. I can see they may be a decorative bit on the main part of the top, but why are they along the back strap since it will be folded over for the tube casing?

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 08:33:

Dear Sandy, you can choose to not crochet the 5 ch at the beg of dc rows when working the last rows for tube casing if your chains are long enough to not tighten piece on the sides. Happy crocheting!

Iris 30.04.2016 - 13:47:

Hey Drops, I would like to use your recycled cotton, either #6 of #5 to make this top. Is it a problem as they aren't in the yarn category B? Thanks in advance

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:25:

Dear Iris, DROPS loves you #6 belongs to group A and DROPS loves you #5 to group C so that they may be not the best alternative to a yarn group B - read more here, and contact your DROPS store for any further individual assistance choosing a yarn/a pattern. Happy crocheting!

Leona 24.04.2016 - 21:44:

Hi! I don't understand the last part on how to thread the ties through the top at all. Is there a video for this, or a clearer explanation? I have no idea which holes and dc:s and loops the text is talking about. Please help!

DROPS Design 25.04.2016 kl. 10:18:

Dear Leona, you will find at the very bottom of the page when scrolling down a chart showing top from back side and how to thread the ties. Happy assembly!

KC 21.04.2016 - 20:08:

Hello...I'm sorry, I'm not understanding where youre getting the measurements. or how you are measuring them. I just would like to know how to had the flaps that fold to the back side? am i supposed to add more chains or do i keep dc until it reaches a a certain length? Is there a way I could send a picture of my progress?

DROPS Design 22.04.2016 kl. 08:43:

Dear KC, you measure total width from the fundation chain towards last row worked. On each side of piece along fold from WS the outermost 3/4" on each side to make like a hem where you will thread tie through - see charts at the bottom of the page. For any further personnal assistance you are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn and then show your picture. Happy crocheting!

KC 21.04.2016 - 17:02:

Hi! I actually don't understand what those numbers mean and where to measure then. I've completed a.1-a.4 by the diagram. I'm not sure how to read those numbers in crochet terms

DROPS Design 21.04.2016 kl. 17:05:

Dear KC, you will find a measurement chart at the bottom of the written patter below the diagrams - the finished measurements are the one from the very top of the piece (fundation chains) - measurements are in cm in chart and given in inches in written pattern. Happy crocheting!

KC 21.04.2016 - 01:36:

After I've completed A.1 to A.4 What do i do next? How do i make the rest? all i have is the chest piece done..

DROPS Design 21.04.2016 kl. 09:10:

Dear Kc, After A.1-A.4 have been worked, work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 24-26-28-30-32-34 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4"-12½"-13½" from cast-on edge mid front. Fasten off. Happy crocheting!

Claudia Jakrlin 19.04.2016 - 15:03:

Hallo Drops, warum muss ich eigentlich jede Reihe mit 5 Maschen beginnen? Das gibt derzeit ziemlich hässliche Bögen am Rand. Oder zeigt sich das später beim Tragen straff?

DROPS Design 20.04.2016 kl. 07:57:

Liebe Claudia, normalerweise wird eine Stb-Reihe mit 3 Luftmaschen gewendet, wenn allerdings die Kante schräg ist (z.B. zurch Zunahmen), braucht man mehr Lm um die Diagonale auszugleichen. Wenn Sie sehr lockere Lm häkeln, reichen vielleicht 4 - aber die Kante darf auf keinen Fall spannen.

Laura Holm 17.04.2016 - 17:26:

Hej:-) Hvad menes der med: "A.2 (=2 fm) 6-7-7-8-8-9 gange i bredden"? (Linje 5 i opskriften)

DROPS Design 18.04.2016 kl. 14:20:

Hej Laura. Du haekler A.2 (som er 2 fm) 6-7-8 eller 9 gange i bredden afhaengigt af hvilken str du laver

Rikke Bryn Røsåsen 30.03.2016 - 14:34:

Hei! Jeg har kommet til raden der jeg har laget det siste hullet i hullmønsteret, og forstår ikke hva jeg skal gjøre videre. Når det står "deretter hekles det 1 st i hver av de resterende st på raden = 107-119-131-145-157-171 m st/lm" forstår jeg det som at jeg skal fortsette å lage staver ut mot ryggen, men skjønner ikke hvor tallet 119 kommer fra? (Lager medium). På forhånd takk for svar, og tusen takk for fantastiske oppskrifter! :) Hilsen Rikke

DROPS Design 31.03.2016 kl. 09:36:

Hej Rikke, Jo men det er med de lm du lige har hæklet i hver side af "forstykket". Har du set videoen?
