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.5 – see diagram for correct size. Work all sts in stocking st.

PATTERN TIP:
In size M, L and XL this round is a round in pattern with 2 colours. Cut the yarn if needed in pattern colour to avoid a long gap under sleeve. In size S, XXL and XXXL cast on on a round in base colour.

RAGLAN:
Inc 1 st on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 1 st remains before marker thread, 1 YO, K 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these sts), 1 YO. On next round K the YOs to make holes.

INCREASE TIP-1:
Work until 2 st remains before marker in the side, 1 YO, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these sts), 1 YO. On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2:
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 192 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 12) = 16. I.e. in this example make a YO after approx. every 16th st worked. On next round work YO´s twisted to avoid holes.

ELEVATION:
Work an elevation in stocking st in the back of neck from mid back as follows: NOTE: On every turn in the middle of piece slip 1st st, tighten yarn and continue to work. Work 10-11-12-13-13-14 sts, turn, tighten yarn and work 20-22-24-26-26-28 sts. Turn, tighten yarn and work 35-38-41-44-44-47 sts, turn, tighten yarn and work 50-54-58-62-62-66 sts. Turn, tighten yarn and work 65-70-75-80-80-85 sts, turn, tighten yarn and work 80-86-92-98-98-104 sts. Turn and work until mid back.

DECREASE TIP:
Work until 4 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

CAST-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round, top down. Rounds start mid back.

YOKE:
Cast on 110-115-130-135-145-150 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with light pearl grey. Work rib = K 2/P 3 for 6 rounds. Then work 1 round in stocking st while inc 2-5-10-17-19-26 sts evenly = 112-120-140-152-164-176 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm.
Insert 1 marker in the first st = mid back (let this marker follow in piece. Then work ELEVATION - see explanation above - in the neck. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue in stocking st, on first round insert 4 marker threads and 3 markers more (= 4) in the piece as follows: Work the first 18-19-21-24-27-30 sts (= half back piece), insert a marker thread, work the next 11-12-15-15-15-15 sts, insert a marker in the last st on right needle (= mid st on sleeve), work the next 10-11-14-14-14-14 sts (= sleeve), insert a marker thread, work the next 18-19-21-24-27-30 sts, insert a marker in the last st on right needle (= mid st on front piece), work the next 17-18-20-23-26-29 sts (= front piece), insert a marker thread, work the next 11-12-15-15-15-15 sts, insert a marker in the last st on right needle (= mid st on sleeve), work the next 10-11-14-14-14-14 sts (= sleeve), insert a marker thread, work the last 17-18-20-23-26-29 sts (= half back piece).

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Now work PATTERN according to diagram A.1. NOTE: St with marker on back piece, front piece and sleeves should fit st with arrow in diagram. Count out towards the side (i.e. the pattern will not fit in transitions between body and sleeves).
Work st on each side of marker thread (i.e. in each raglan) in base colour in pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above, in every transition between body and sleeves (= 8 sts inc on round). Inc like this every other round 21-24-25-27-29-32 times in total = 280-312-340-368-396-432 sts. NOTE: Work the new sts in pattern. When all inc are done, piece measures 22-24-25-26-29-31 cm from shoulder and last round worked is marked with arrow in A.1. Now continue next round in pattern as follows: Work the first 39-43-46-51-56-62 sts (= half back piece), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new sts under sleeve with base colour in pattern – READ PATTERN TIP, work the next 63-71-79-83-87-93 sts before slipping them on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the next 77-85-91-101-111-123 sts (= front piece), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new sts under sleeve in base colour in pattern, work the next 63-71-79-83-87-93 sts before slipping them on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the remaining 38-42-45-50-55-61 sts on round (= half back piece).

BODY:
There are now 170-186-202-222-246-274 sts for body. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new sts that were cast on under sleeves. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue with the remaining rounds in A.1. NOTE: The pattern will not fit in each side. Then continue with medium grey. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker threads - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Dec like this every 4th round 2 times in total = 162-178-194-214-238-266 sts. When piece measures 7 cm, work a round with eyelet holes as follows:
K 1, * K 2, K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 sts remain, K 1. Work 2 more rounds in medium grey.
Now work pattern A.2 (= 2 rounds). Then work with light pearl grey until piece measures 20 cm in all sizes, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of marker threads in each side – READ INCREASE TIP-1. Inc like this every 5th-5th-5th-4th-4th-4th round 6 times in total = 186-202-218-238-262-290 sts. Work 1 round while adjusting the no of sts to 192-204-228-240-264-300. Work A.3 (= 12 sts) 16-17-19-20-22-25 times on round. On 6th round in A.3 inc 12-12-24-24-24-24 sts evenly – READ INCREASE TIP-2 = 204-216-252-264-288-324 sts. When A.3 has been worked vertically, continue with medium grey. On first round with medium grey inc 12 sts evenly in all sizes = 216-228-264-276-300-336 sts. When piece measures 39-40-42-43-43-44 cm, work A.4 (= 12 sts) 18-19-22-23-25-28 times on round. On 8th round in diagram inc 8-12-8-12-20-16 sts evenly = 224-240-272-288-320-352 sts. When A.4 has been worked, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work 1 round with light pearl grey while inc 31-45-48-47-55-63 sts evenly = 255-285-320-335-375-415 sts. Work rib = K 2/P 3 for 5 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P - READ CAST-OFF TIP. Piece measures 80-83-86-89-92-95 cm in total from shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm and pick up 1 st in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts under sleeve = 71-79-89-93-99-107 sts. Insert 1 marker thread between the new sts under sleeve (= beg of round), and keep the marker in mid st on top of sleeve. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue with pattern as on body, i.e. the remaining rounds in A.1 - st with marker in mid on top of sleeve should fit st with arrow in diagram, the pattern will not fit mid under sleeve. When A.1 is done continue with medium grey and A.2 as on body. NOTE! Do not work eyelet row on sleeve, then continue with light pearl grey, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker thread under sleeve. Dec like this every 8th-6th-5th-5th-4th-3rd round 13-16-20-21-23-26 times in total = 45-47-49-51-53-55 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when sleeve measures 30-29-28-28-27-25 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke) - work A.5 – st with marker mid on top of sleeve should fit st with arrow in diagram. When A.5 has been worked, continue with A.4 over A.5. NOTE: Do not inc on round with star. When A.4 has been worked, continue with light pearl grey until finished measurements. When piece measures 43-42-41-41-40-38 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 5-3-6-4-7-5 sts evenly = 50-50-55-55-60-60 sts. Work rib = K 2/P 3 for 3 cm. Cast off sts with K over K and P over P. Work the other sleeve the same way.

TWINED STRING WITH TASSELS:
Cut 3 lengths of 3 metres each with cerise. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold them double so that they twine again. Make a knot at each end. Thread tie up and down through eyelet row in waist.
Make a tassel in each end as follows:
Cut 12 strands with cerise of 16 cm, thread them through knot at the end of string. Twine a strand around the top of tassel several times and tie this string to keep the tassel tog. Make another tassel in the other end of string with dark old rose.

I need help determining my size pkease

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 09:38:

Dear Mrs Anthony, measure a similar dress you have and like the shape and compare the measurements in chart (= in cm) - convert into inches and read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Nicoletta 01.12.2018 - 00:10:

Mi trovo in difficolta' con raglan,per taglia M,la lavorazione del raglan è quella compresa nelle 12 maglie dopo il centro dietro e le 12 dopo il davanti?in ogni raglan devono esserci 8 aumenti? Partendo da un gettato,2 dir,1 gett,2 dir,1 gett,2 dir,1 gett,2 dir,1 gett,2 dir,1 gett,2 dir e 1 gett,mi verrebbero 7 aumenti...ma probabilmente sto sbagliando tutto....Spero possiate aiutarmi...vi ringrazio anticipatamente,buona serata Nicoletta

DROPS Design 01.12.2018 kl. 08:12:

Buongiorno Nicoletta. Gli aumenti per il raglan vanno fatti prima / dopo il filo marcatore che individua il passaggio tra il davanti (o il dietro) e le maniche. Se guarda la fotografia, corrispondono alle linee con i buchi. Nel paragrafo RAGLAN trovo indicato come aumentare. Buon lavoro!

Carol 02.05.2018 - 08:09:

Thanks, I always catch the non-working yarn on the back every other stitch, but it still shows through a little bit behind the yarnover. Maybe I’m just fussy, no one else sees it.

DROPS Design 06.05.2018 kl. 09:16:

Dear Carol, how about trying to catch the floats right at the raglan too? Maybe once right before, then the middle and then right at the other side, to avoid the catches sitting on each other and creating another ridge that can show trough. Happy Knitting.

Carol Williamson 01.05.2018 - 17:42:

Any tips on how to carry the yarn behind the yarnover so it doesn’t show through on the front?

DROPS Design 01.05.2018 kl. 21:09:

Dear Carol, if you are afraid the color you carry at the back showing, you might want to try to "catch" the floats at the back, just before and after the raglan, that is change the active and non-active yarn (so the yarn you carry in the floats is wrapped around the active yarn) and knit the next stitch while you hold back the active yarn a little bit, so the twist stays at the back of the knitting. You can use the same technique when you have to carry the floats for more than a few stitches. Happy Knitting!

Any tips on how to carry the yarn behind the yarnover so it doesn’t show through on the front?

Christiane 05.03.2018 - 20:37:

Bei der Beschreibung für das Rumpfteil heißt es: "Dann Muster A.2 str (= 2 Rd). Dann mit hell perlgrau str, bis die Arb eine Länge von 20 cm für alle Größen hat, GLEICHZEITIG beidseitig jedes Seitenmarkierers je 1 M zunehmen..." Bezieht sich das "gleichzeitig" auf den Beginn des perlgrauen Streifens oder auf die Länge von 20cm?

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Christiane, die Zunahmen beginnen Sie mit dem perlgrauen Streifen, dh nach A.2. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Yvonne 18.12.2017 - 13:48:

Hallo Drops Team wieviel Garn brauch ich für dieses Modell, wenn ich einfarbig stricken möchte? Danke. Grüße

DROPS Design 18.12.2017 kl. 14:48:

Liebe Yvonne, leider können wir Ihnen nicht genau wissen, da dieses Kleid mit verschiedenen Farben gestrickt war. Sie können alle Farben zusammenrechnen, sicher brauchen Sie etwas mehr. Ihr DROPS Laden kann damit Ihnen gerne weiter hilfen, auch per mail oder telefonisch. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dorthe Toft Pedersen 09.11.2017 - 12:25:

Har I en instruktion på den forhøjning som I beskriver i denne trøje. Kan ikke lige finde ud af det!

DROPS Design 10.11.2017 kl. 10:57:

Hei Dorthe. Forklaringen på forhøyningen på denne kjolen finner du på begynnelsen av oppskriften, under UDTAGNINGSTIPS-2. Du kan også se video (Hvordan strikke forkortede pinner (enkel)), for å se hvordan det gjøres. God Fornøyelse!

Sara 02.05.2017 - 06:34:

Hej! Jag funderar på att sticka klänningen i enfärgat. Hur mycket garn behöver jag då i stl M?

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 kl. 13:41:

Hej, det har vi tyvärr inte beräknat. Men titta på denna: https://www.garnstudio.com/pattern.php?id=6719&cid=12

Coutarel 16.01.2017 - 16:52:

On augmente pour le raglan la ou sont les marqueurs fils, faut il augmenter au niveau des marqueurs ?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 17:09:

Bonjour Mme Coutarel, augmentez aux fils marqueurs = à chaque raglan, vous avez 4 fils marqueurs (transition manches/devant et dos). Les mailles avec les marqueurs au milieu dos/devant et des manches sont pour le repère du motif. Bon tricot!
