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

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.

Thanks for helping. Is there a video tht shows how to do the below? "sew small stitches through both layers to make a tunnel to thread the tie through." Regards Rainbow

DROPS Design 07.03.2016 kl. 10:08:

Dear Mrs Rainbow, there is no such video yet but your request has been added to our list - while it comes, I'll try to reword you how to process: fold 2 cm in each side towards WS (see also dotted line in chart) and sew small sts along this dotted line to keep the edge on place and you get a tunnel casing where you can then thread the string through - see chart at the very bottom, with top from WS and string through the tunnel casings on each side. Happy crocheting!

Rainbow 05.03.2016 - 06:50:

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. Cast-on edge mid front means from beginning top?? Regards Rainbow

DROPS Design 05.03.2016 kl. 18:09:

Dear Mrs Rainbow, yes you measure from cast-on edge, ie from top edge of front piece, this is the total length of top (see also measurement chart - in cm). Happy crocheting!

Rainbow 02.03.2016 - 12:45:

Continue with 1 dc in every dc and continue to dec lace pattern mid front into a tip. don't get this, could you please explain?? Thanks, Rainbow

DROPS Design 02.03.2016 kl. 15:00:

Dear Mrs Rainbow, you continue working A.1, A.2 and A.3 so that lace pattern dec as shown in A.1 and A.3. When there are only 4 ch-spaces remaining at the tip, work then diagram A.4. Happy crocheting!

Rainbow 01.03.2016 - 09:50:

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 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch (includes 5 ch to turn with). Means?? From right side once and left side once??

DROPS Design 01.03.2016 kl. 13:29:

Dear Rainbow, yes you crochet 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch on one side, turn and work as explained to the end of row, then at the end of this row, crochet 27-30-37-44-49-57 ch, turn and work next row. You have now inc on both sides of top. Happy crocheting!

Rainbow 29.02.2016 - 19:11:

I did the A.1, A.2 & A.3 but I don't understand what next.

DROPS Design 01.03.2016 kl. 08:58:

Dear Rainbow, you will now cast on new chains on each side (see video below), ie at the end of the last row you have worked + at the end of next row by crocheting 27-57 ch (see size), then working with dc and continue pattern in the middle of piece. Happy crocheting!

Rainbow 29.02.2016 - 17:19:

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 dc *, Thanks, Rainbow

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 17:43:

Dear Rainbow, the video below shows how to work A.1, A.2 and A.3 (we work only A.2 2 times in width in the video). Happy crocheting!

Venligst besvar mit spørgsmål afsendt den 1. februar. Pft. Lindie

Hej igen Lindie, har du set videoen:

DROPS Crocheting Tutorial: How to work a top with trebles and lace pattern from Garnstudio Drops design on Vimeo.

Lindie 01.02.2016 - 11:21:

Kære jer, Denne opskrift volder mig lidt udfordringer. Skal nu begynde forfra for 3. gang. Kan ikke forstå diagrammet. Der er 33 m når A.1-A.3 påbegyndes. Men der beskrives kun de 23 af maskerne. Hvordan hækler jeg de 10 i midten? På forhånd tak Mh Lindie

DROPS Design 11.02.2016 kl. 15:25:

Hej Lindie. Du har 33 m og haekler: A.1 = 11 m, saa gentager du A.2 6 gange (= 12 m) og slutter af med A.3 = 10 m = 33 m haeklet

Malu De LEon 26.01.2016 - 03:52:

Could you please put the sizes measurements? Size S - M - L - XL and etc are for which size of bust?

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 10:32:

Dear Mrs De Leon, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements in cm - taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Happy crocheting!
