DRESS
The dress is worked in the round from the bottom edge and up.
Read the entire Pattern instructions above before beginning.
Cast on 252-288-324 sts loosely on larger circular needles with terracotta. Work 2 rows of Pattern 1 in garter st.
Change to smaller circular needles and stockinette st.
Continue to work Pattern 1 with color changes as indicated in Diag. 1.
When the piece measures 28 cm [11"] start Dec 1. 14-16-18 sts are decreased each dec row. After Dec. 1 = 238-272-306 sts remain, work Pattern 2.
When the piece measures 33 cm [13"] start Dec. 2 = 224-256-288 sts remain, then work Pattern 3.
When the piece measures 38 cm [14 7/8"] start Dec. 3 = 210-240-270 sts remain, then work Pattern 4.

= 86-98-110 sts. Put 43-49-55 sts at one side on a st holder.

1st strap:
Mark the center st of the 43-49-55 remaining sts on needle.

Bonjour je suis vraiment désolée je ne comprends toujours pas pouvez vous m expliquer autrement. Toutes mes excuses mais je ne vois pas comment on diminue au niveau du marqueur. Dites moi dans quel sens on va!!!!!! Merci \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nCordialement Evelyne

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 09:59:

Bonjour Mme Vivier, on ne diminue pas au niveau du marqueur, on diminuer au début et à la fin du rang, et en même temps, on augmente de chaque côté du marqueur = on diminue 2 m au début du rang et 2 m à la fin du rang et en même temps, sur le même rang, on augmente 2 m au marqueur = on va diminuer 2 m au total. Bon tricot!

Evelyne Vivier 13.05.2018 - 12:27:

Bonjour je ne comprends pas les diminutions pour le devant astuce 2 .\r\n J\'ai mis mon marqueur au milieu de mes 43m et après je suis bloquée . Merci pour votre réponse . Cordialement Evelyne

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 11:46:

Bonjour Mme Vivier, placez bien votre marqueur dans la m centrale (= 21 m, mettez un marqueur dans la m suivante, 21 m). Diminuez ensuite ainsi: 1 m end, 3 m ens à l'end (= on diminue 2 m), faites 1 jeté de chaque côté de la maille avec le marqueur (= 2 augm), continuez jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 4 m et diminuez 2 m (= glissez 1 m à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, p assez la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée), 1 m end = vous avez diminué 4 m et augmenté 2 m = vous avez diminué 2 mailles seulement sur ce rang. Bon tricot!

Evelyne Vivier 02.05.2018 - 10:07:

Bonjour Merci pour votre réponse. J'ai bien compris la diminution mais je j'obtiens pas le bon nombre de mailles entre les jetés Pouvez vous m expliquer à nouveau Merci Evelyne

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 10:53:

Bonjour Mme Vivier, à la 1ère diminution (flèche 1), tricotez les premières m comme avant: 2 m ens à l'end, 6 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end, 1 jeté, 6 m end, 1 dim, 1 m end, puis tricotez 3 m ens à l'end (= 12ème symbole = 2 dim), 5 m end, 1 jeté, 5 m end, glissez 1 m à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, passez la m glissée par dessus la m tricotée (= 2 diminutions = avant-dernier symbole). Bon tricot!

Evelyne Vivier 30.04.2018 - 15:14:

Bonjour je n arrive pas à faire les diminutions 1 je n'ai pas le bon nombre de mailles entre les deux Comment dois-je suivre le diagramme sur les 36m Merci Cordialement Evelyne

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 09:21:

Bonjour Mme Vivier, en bas de la robe, tricotez d'abord M.1 puis diminuez en suivant les 2 rangs 1. = celui avec la flèche (= on diminue au 1er de ces 2 rangs), tricotez ensuite en suivant M.2. À 33 cm, tricotez les 2 rangs 2. avec la flèche (= diminutions) et tricotez ensuite M.3, et ainsi de suite, tricotez le diagramme indiqué puis, pour diminuer, tricotez les 2 rangs suivant avec la flèche. Bon tricot!

Hej från en nybörjare som vill prova att göra en enkel klänning och fann den här. Kan jag använda mönstret för att göra den enfärgad och utan sick-sack-mönstret eller är det bättre att jag letar upp ett annat mönster?

DROPS Design 27.02.2018 kl. 13:33:

Hej Lisa, Jo men det bør du kunne, men sørg for at få samme strikkefasthed som der står i opskriften, så målene stemmer med dem du finder i måleskitsen nederst. God fornøjelse!

Joan Honoré 15.06.2017 - 18:30:

Hej, tak for svar. Kombinerer jeg muskat og cotton light ? og hvilke farve nr vil i foreslå at jeg bruger istedet for 22,28+35 ? Farverne snydere somme tider på en skærm :-)

DROPS Design 16.06.2017 kl. 06:57:

Hei Joan. Fargevalg er så personlig at det beste er at du velger de fargene du mener passer deg best, enten i bare Muskat eller i Cotton Light. God Fornøyelse!

Joan 11.06.2017 - 09:21:

Hej, tak for svar. Kombinerer jeg muskat og cotton light ? og hvilke farve nr vil i foreslå at jeg bruger istedet for 22,28+35 ? Farverne snydere somme tider på en skærm :-)

Chris 10.06.2017 - 12:34:

Hva med bakstykket på denne kjolen? Det står at en skal felle av alle 60 m. på bakstykket. Stemmer dette? Det kan være noe jeg ikke har klart å lese av oppskriften. Forslag/erfaringer tas i mot med takk på hvordan jeg skal gjør det med bakstykket :)

DROPS Design 12.06.2017 kl. 08:19:

Hei Chris. Ja, det stemmer. Kjolen strikkes på rundp fra nederkant av skjørtet og opp, når arb måler 66 cm (str M) byttes det til rundp 3 og strikkes ferdig med terrakotta og rillestrikk. Fell til ermhull, deretter strikkes for- og bakstk ferdig for seg. Bakstk: = 80 m. Videre felles det til ermhull i hver side på hver 2.p - se Felletips: 1 m i alt 10 ganger = 60 m, fell av. Du er nå ferdig med bakstykket og skal nå strikke forstykkene inkl stroppene, disse stroppene skal så festes i bakstykket. Se bildet av ryggen. God Fornøyelse!

Joan 09.06.2017 - 11:01:

Hej Joan, husk at du også kan strikke den i Cotton Light - klik på garnalternativer :)
