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.
INCREASE TIP:
Inc with YO, on next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. See diagram for size!

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

RIDGE: (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. K 1 round and P 1 round.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round, top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 84-88-92-96-100 sts on a small circular needle size 3.5 mm with light pearl grey. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid back). Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3-3-4-4-5 cm (= neck edge). Switch to a short circular needle size 4 mm. K 1 round while at the same time adjusting no of sts to 78-84-90-98-105. Then work an elevation at the back in stocking st as follows: K 8 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 16 sts on return, turn, tighten yarn and K 24 sts, turn, continue by working 8 sts more on every turn until a total of 48-48-64-64-80 sts have been worked, turn and K 1 round until marker mid back again. Then work A.1 (= 13-14-15-14-15 repetitions in width) - see diagram for size. READ KNITTING TIP! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Switch to a longer circular needle when there are enough sts. When A.1 has been worked, there are 208-224-240-252-270 sts on needle. Work 0-0-1-0-1 cm with light pearl grey. Piece now measures approx. 15-15-16-17-18 cm mid front (measured without rib in the neck). Work with light pearl grey and in stocking st until finished measurements. First work 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-4-4-12-10 sts evenly = 212-228-244-264-280 sts. Work next round as follows: Work 31-33-35-37-39 sts, slip the next 44-48-52-58-62 sts on 1 stitch holder for sleeve (without working them first), cast on 6 new sts, work 62-66-70-74-78 sts (= front piece), slip the next 44-48-52-58-62 sts on 1 stitch holder for sleeve (without working them first), cast on 6 new sts, work 31-33-35-37-39 sts.

BODY:
= 136-144-152-160-168 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Now insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker at beg of round (= side), 2nd marker after 24-25-26-27-28 sts, 3rd marker after another 20-22-24-26-28 sts, 4th marker after another 24-25-26-27-28 sts (= side), 5th marker after another 24-25-26-27-28 sts, 6th marker after another 20-22-24-26-28 sts (24-25-26-27-28 sts remain on round after last marker). When piece measures 3 cm, inc as follows: Inc 1 st on each side of 1st and 4th marker, inc 1 st after 2nd and 5th marker and 1 st before 3rd and 6th marker – READ INCREASE TIP (= 8 sts inc). Inc every 2-2½-2½-3-3 cm 13-13-14-14-15 times in total = 240-248-264-272-288 sts.
When piece measures 29-34-38-42-46 cm, dec 0-2-0-2-0 st evenly on round = 240-246-264-270-288 sts, then work according to A.2. When A.2 has been worked one time vertically, there are 280-287-308-315-336 sts on round. Work 2 RIDGES - see explanation above, and cast off.

Repeat dec every 4½-3½-4-3-3½ cm 5-7-7-10-10 times in total = 40-40-44-44-48 sts. When piece measures 20-25-29-32-36 cm, adjust no of sts to = 42-42-48-48-48. Work A.3, when A.3 has been worked one time vertically, there are 49-49-56-56-56 sts on round. Work 2 ridges in garter st, cast off.
Work the same way over the sts on the other stitch holder.

Bonjour et merci pour votre réponse. Pouvez vous me dire à quelle niveau des explications figurent cette indication. Aurai je tronqué mon texte en l'imprimant ?

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 14:36:

Bonjour Mc, c'est indiqué au début du DOS & DEVANT: Placer maintenant 6 marqueurs ainsi: le 1er marqueur au début du tour (= côté).... Bon tricot!

Mc 30.01.2019 - 17:54:

Problème au niveau de la pose des marqueurs en débutant la partie dos devant. Pourquoi le 1er marqueur indique le "côté," alors que le tour démarre au demi dos ? Faut il inclure les mailles des manches lorsqu'on compte les mailles pour poser les marqueurs ? merci

DROPS Design 31.01.2019 kl. 09:21:

Bonjour Mc, le début des tours sur l'empiècement se trouve au milieu dos, mais pour le bas de la robe (dos & devant), on commence sur le côté, au milieu des 6 nouvelles mailles montées sous les manches. Dans cette section, les mailles des manches ont été mises en attente, on tricote la partie sous les manches jusqu'en bas de la robe. Bon tricot!

Mc 17.01.2019 - 10:05:

Bonjour, Je profite de cet échange pour vous remercier pour la rapidité avec laquelle vous répondez à mes nombreuses questions. En voici une autre : depuis 2 jours, je n'ai plus accès à "mes favoris" sur votre site et de plus, lorsque j'aimerais sélectionner un modèle je ne vois plus "ajouter à vos favoris ! Que se passe t il ?

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 15:14:

Bonjour Mc, cette fonctionnalité a été momentanément désactivée, mais sera de nouveau disponible très bientôt, merci pour votre patience, bonne continuation!

Mc 15.01.2019 - 14:01:

Bonjour, Le diagramme se lit et s'exécute de bas en haut ? La partie basse étant la plus proche du col ? Merci

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 16:47:

Bonjour Mc, tout à fait, les diagrammes se lisent de bas en haut, en commençant en bas à droite et on lit de droite à gauche tous les tours. le 1er rang des diagrammes est ainsi le plus près du bord du col. Bon tricot!

Mc 13.01.2019 - 14:24:

Bonjour, Je tricote le modèle 3/4 ans, je monte donc 84 mailles, on me dit d'ajuster le nombre de mailles à 78, cela signifie qu'il faut réaliser 6 diminutions, j'ai bien compris ? Merci

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 11:35:

Bonjour Mc, tout à fait, vous allez répartir 6 diminutions au tour suivant pour qu'il reste 78 m à la fin de ce tour. Cette leçon explique comment répartir des diminutions. Bon tricot!

Jinky 07.01.2019 - 16:28:

Hi, May I know what are the sizes for this nordic dress? Thanks so much. My daughter has a chest size between 26 - 26 1/2 inches, what can size should I follow? Thank you.

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 08:18:

Dear Jinky, you will find all finished measurements taken flat from side to side in the chart below, ie for example to this dress, 34 cm x 2 = 68 cm = 26.77 inches. Read more about sizing and convert into inches here. Happy knitting!

Lea 22.11.2018 - 16:53:

Hallo, wie kann ich vermeiden, dass sich das Muster am Runden Anfang versetzt? Das finde ich immer unschön. Gibt es da einen Tipp? Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 09:46:

Liebe Lea, bei den Reihen mit streifen können Sie wie mit diesem Technik stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bente Henriksen 31.10.2018 - 11:38:

Hej jeg er i tvivl om ribkanten i halsen måles med, når jeg måler arbejdet.

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 13:18:

Hei Bente. Om ikke det står spesifisert at du skal måle uten vrangborden i halsen skal hele arbeidet måles, fra oppleggskanten frem til der du er kommet. God fornøyelse.

Fokelien Ramaker 04.05.2018 - 13:52:

Ik ben bezig met de pas in patroon A1 leeftijd 5/6 jaar. Bij de 11 steken dat ik 1 moet meerderen bij het zigzag patroon. Ben al bij de handwerkzaak geweest volgens mij klopt het patroon niet. Ik krijg het zigzag patroon niet zoals op de afbeelding staat.

DROPS Design 06.05.2018 kl. 11:58:

Dag Fokelien, Op de 18e naald in A.1 is het patroon 11 steken breed per herhaling. Dan op de 19e naald maak je na elke 11 steken een omslag met naturel = 12 steken per herhaling van A.1 Als je dan in naald 20 het patroon volgt, dus steeds 1 steek naturel, 1 steek pink, brei je de omslagen van de vorige toer steeds (gedraaid) in pink. Op die manier zou je uit moeten komen met het patroon en de meerderingen.

Tahrir 22.03.2018 - 08:04:

Hi this is a lovely pattern but I do need to ask after the ribbing for the dress it says round K 1 round while at the same time adjusting no of sts to 78-84-90-98-105. I’m guessing the stitches need to be decreased but where do I decrease? Is it at the beginning or end of the round or middle? That’s all for now! Thank you

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 09:22:

Dear Tahrir, you will have to dec (or inc depending on the size) evenly on this round - see here. Happy knitting!
