Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.10. Diagram A.10 shows how every round in A.8 beg and ends when working in the round.

CROCHET INFO:
On every tr row replace first tr with 3 ch.
On every dc row replace first dc with 1 ch.
Beg every round with tr with 3 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.
Beg every round with dc with 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in first ch.

DECREASE TIP:
Work until 5 tr remain before markers in the side, work the next 2 tr tog, work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, work the next 2 tr tog, work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, work the next 2 tog (= 3 tr dec at each marker = 6 tr dec in total).

INCREASE TIP-1:
Work until 4 tr remain before markers in the side, work 2 tr in next tr, work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, work 2 tr in next tr, work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr, work 2 tr in next tr (= 3 tr in at each marker = 6 tr inc in total).

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts (e.g. 234 tr) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 12) = 19.50. I.e. in this example work 2 tr in every other 19th tr and 20th tr.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Work top down, back and forth in parts, then work them tog and in the round.

BODY:
Worked in the round. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Leave marker in piece, move marker threads when working.
Repeat A.8 over all sts (= 30-33-36-39-44-48 times in total in width). A.10 shows how every round beg and ends.

Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 4 cm, adjust so that next round is with tr, dec 3 tr at each marker in the side (= 6 sts dec in total) – READ DECREASE TIP, repeat dec when piece measures 12 cm = 168-186-204-222-252-276 tr. NOTE: Every time you dec, repeat A.8 1 time less in width. When piece measures 33-35-37-39-41-43 in total (i.e. 16-17-18-19-20-21 cm from marker), adjust so that last round is a round with tr, continue piece with 1 tr in every tr.

Insert 6 new marker threads in piece on next round as follows: Insert first marker thread after 14-16-17-19-21-23 tr, then there should be 28-31-34-37-42-46 tr between every marker thread, there will be 14-15-17-18-21-23 tr after last marker thread at the end of round. Let marker threads follow in piece. When piece measures 37-39-41-43-45-47 cm in total, inc 1 tr before all marker threads (= 6 tr inc) - Read INCREASE TIP-1. Repeat inc every 3½ cm 10 more times - NOTE: Inc alternately before and after marker threads = 234-252-270-288-318-342 tr.

When piece measures 77-79-81-83-85-87 cm in total, work A.8 39-42-45-48-53-57 times in total on round. On 5th, 10th and 14th round in A.8 (= tr round, marked with square in diagram) inc 12 tr evenly on each round – READ INCREASE TIP-2 = 270-288-306-324-354-378 tr. For every inc, work A.8 2 times more in width. Repeat A.8 and inc 1 more time = 306-324-342-360-390-414 tr. When piece measures 98-100-102-104-106-108 cm in total, adjust so that last round is a round with tr, work A.8c 51-54-57-60-65-69 times in total in width. Fasten off when A.8c has been worked 1 time vertically.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

NECK EDGE:
Work an edge around the neck as follows (beg mid back): Work 1 dc in first tr, * 3 ch, skip approx. 1 cm *, repeat from *-* around the entire neck, make sure to avoid a tight edge, adjust to finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Fasten off.

Mi dice di ripetere A1a per le 24 ma successive ma le ma sono di più.grazie

DROPS Design 23.02.2018 kl. 08:43:

Buongiorno Eugenia. Se capiamo correttamente il punto che non le è chiaro, per la Taglia L o XL, ha 27 m.a sulla spalla sinistra e le lavora in questo modo: diag. A.1a sulle prime 2 m.a, diagramma A.2a sulle 24 maglie successive e 1 m.a nell'ultima m.a: in tutto 27 m.a. Avvia poi le catenelle. Buon lavoro!

Ciobanu Eugenia 22.02.2018 - 21:53:

Volevo capire meglio come si uniscono le due spalle di dietro.Il passaggio con le catenelle non si capisce bene.grazie

DROPS Design 23.02.2018 kl. 08:38:

Buongiorno Eugenia. Per il dietro, deve prima lavorare le maglie della spalla sinistra come indicato, poi avvia le catenelle che consentono di unire le spalle e procede sulle maglie della spalla destra come indicato. Buon lavoro!

Stephanie 03.07.2017 - 17:44:

Question concerning width of body: between 37cm and 77cm there are 11 increases of 6dc = 66dc more. According to the gauge this will increase the width of the dress by 30cm. Which is enormous. And the diagram shows that width increases 15cm. So should it be 5 increases? Or am I missing something? Thanks...

DROPS Design 03.07.2017 kl. 18:05:

Dear Stephanie, you inc a total of 11 times every 3,5 cm = 234 dc (= 106 cm around = 53 cm, as shown in diagram). When piece measures 77 cm, inc to 270 dc and then inc one more time = 306 dc (= ca 140 cm around = 70 cm, as shown in diagram). Happy crocheting!

Rosa Barroso 04.03.2017 - 09:56:

Hola! Estoy tejiendo este vestido y tengo una duda. Por lo que entiendo al leer el patrón la talla S no tiene aumentos para la sisa en la axila. ¿Es así?

DROPS Design 04.03.2017 kl. 11:26:

Hola Rosa. Los aumentos para las sisas se trabajan a partir de la talla L.
