Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of dress):
Decrease as follows after marker thread: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before marker thread: Begin 2 stitches before marker thread, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to armholes):
Decrease inside 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are done from the right side.
Decrease after 3 edge stitches as follows: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease before 3 edge stitches as follows: Begin 2 stitches before the 3 edge stitches and knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP-3:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 12) = 4.5. In this example work alternately every 3rd and 4th stitch and every 4th and 5th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides on dress and mid under sleeves):
Increase on each side of 1st and 4th marker thread on dress and on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round on circular needle bottom up to armholes, then work front and back piece separately back and forth.
Cast on somewhat loosely 230-230-276-276-322-322 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work A.1 in the round (= 10-10-12-12-14-14 repetitions of 23 stitches). When A.1 has been worked, there are 210-210-252-252-294-294 stitches on needle. Work A.2 in the round (= 10-10-12-12-14-14 repetitions of 21 stitches). NOTE: On 7th round in A.2 displace round 1 stitch forward. When A.2 has been worked, there are 180-180-216-216-252-252 stitches on needle. Insert 6 marker threads in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker thread at beginning of round (= side), 2nd marker thread after the next 10 stitches, 3rd marker thread after the next 70-70-88-88-106-106 stitches, 4th marker thread after the next 10 stitches (= in the side), 5th marker thread after the next 10 stitches, 6th marker thread after the next 70-70-88-88-106-106 stitches = 10 stitches remain on round after last marker thread. Move marker threads upwards when working.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Work A.3 in the round (= 10-10-12-12-14-14 repetitions of 18 stitches). When A.3 has been worked vertically, work next round as follows: Begin 2 stitches before 1st marker thread, work A.4 over the next 3 stitches (1st marker thread is now in the middle of A.4 and A.4 matches over holes in A.3), work in stockinette stitch until 2 stitches remain before 4th marker thread, work A.4 over the next 3 stitches and work stockinette stitch the rest of round. Continue pattern like this with stockinette stitch and A.4 in each side.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 14-14-14-16-16-15 cm / 5½"-5½"-5½"-6 1/4"-6 1/4"-6", decrease after 2nd and 5th marker thread and before 3rd and 6th marker thread – READ DECREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2½-3½-2½-3½-2½-4½ cm / 7/8"-1 1/4"-7/8"-1 1/4"-7/8"-1 3/4" 13-10-15-11-15-10 times in total = 128-140-156-172-192-212 stitches on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE
When piece measures 48-49-51-53-55-57 cm / 19"-19 1/4"-20"-21"-21½"-22½" (decreases are now done), switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work A.5 in the round. When A.5 has been worked, switch back to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Insert 1 marker on round – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Work next round as follows: 10-13-17-17-22-27 stitches in stockinette stitch, A.6A (= 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches), A.6B (= 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches), 20-26-34-34-44-54 stitches stockinette stitch (marker thread in the side is in the middle of these stitches), A.6A (= 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches), A.6B (= 22-22-22-26-26-26 stitches) and 10-13-17-17-22-27 stitches stockinette stitch. Continue pattern like this.
When piece measures 3 cm / 1'' from marker, increase 1 stitch on each side of 1st and 4th marker thread - READ INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches increased). Repeat increase when piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'' from marker = 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. When piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'', work 2 ridges over the middle 12-12-14-18-22-26 stitches in each side (6-6-7-9-11-13 stitches on each side of 1st and 4th marker thread – work the other stitches as before).
On first round after ridges, bind off the middle 6-6-8-12-16-20 stitches in each side for armholes (3-3-4-6-8-10 stitches on each side of 1st and 4th marker thread). Finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 62-68-74-78-84-90 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch and A.6 as before and work the outermost 3 stitches in each side in garter stitch. AT THE SAME TIME on first row from right side decrease for armhole in each side - READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this on every other row (i.e. every row from right side) 2-3-5-7-8-11 times in total in each side = 58-62-64-64-68-68 stitches. Continue pattern with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 77-80-83-86-89-92 cm / 30 3/8''-31½''-32¾''-33 7/8''-35''-36¼''. Now bind off the middle 26-26-26-32-32-32 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue as before and bind off 1 stitch on next row from the neck = 15-17-18-15-17-17 stitches remain on shoulder. Work until 1 row remains until piece measures 80-83-86-89-92-95 cm / 31½''-32¾''-33 7/8''-35''-36¼''-37 3/8'', knit 1 row from wrong side and bind off by knitting from right side. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 62-68-74-78-84-90 stitches. Work the same way as on back piece and decrease for armholes in each side as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 66-69-71-74-76-79 cm / 26"-27"-28"-29"-30"-31", adjust so that next row is worked from right side, divide the piece in the middle for neck vent and finish each front piece separately.

LEFT FRONT PIECE (when garment is worn):
Continue back and forth over half the stitches with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards armhole, stockinette stitch and A.6A towards mid front. When piece measures 72-75-78-81-84-87 cm / 28½"-29½"-30 3/4"-32"-33"-34 1/4" (adjust so that next row is worked from wrong side), slip the first 9-9-9-12-12-12 stitches from mid front on 1 stitch holder for neck (to avoid cutting the working yarn, work the stitches before slipping them on stitch holder). Continue to bind off for neck at beginning of every row from mid front as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 3 times = 15-17-18-15-17-17 stitches remain for shoulder. Work until 1 row remains until piece measures 80-83-86-89-92-95 cm / 31½''-32¾''-33 7/8''-35''-36¼''-37 3/8'', knit 1 row from wrong side and bind off by knitting from right side.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work the same way as on left front piece but with decreases in opposite side (when slipping stitches on stitch holder for neck this is done from right side, not wrong side).

SLEEVE:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.
Cast on 54-58-62-64-68-72 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Work 2 ridges. Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and work in stockinette stitch. When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 12-14-16-16-18-20 stitches evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-3 = 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and A.5. After A.5 switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Work in stockinette stitch. When piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'' in all sizes, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 4-3-3-2½-2-1½ cm / 1½"-1"-1"-7/8"-3/4"-½" 7-9-9-10-12-14 times in total = 56-62-64-68-74-80 stitches. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 21 cm / 8 1/4'', switch back to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 again. Work A.5, switch back to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and work stockinette stitch again. When piece measures 38-38-37-36-35-34 cm / 15"-15"-14½"-14 1/4"-13 3/4"-13½", bind off the middle 6 stitches under sleeve (3 stitches on each side of marker) and work sleeve cap back and forth on circular needle until finished measurements. Continue with stockinette stitch and bind off at beginning of every row in each side as follows: 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 3-3-3-5-6-8 times. Then bind off 2 stitches at beginning of every row in each side until piece measures 45-45-45-46-46-47 cm / 17 3/4"-17 3/4"-17 3/4"-18"-18"-18½". Bind off 3 stitches at beginning of the next 2 rows before loosely binding off all stitches. Sleeve measures approx. 46-46-46-47-47-48 cm / 18"-18"-18"-18½"-18½"-19". Make another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew sleeves - edge in garter stitch along armhole should be on the outside of sleeve i.e. place the garter stitch edge a bit over the edge on the sleeve cap.

NECK EDGE:
Begin mid front and pick up from right side approx. 74 to 94 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holders at the front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 row from wrong side, knit 1 row from right side and knit 1 row from wrong side. Bind off knitting from right side.

Bonjour, je souhaite réaliser ce modèle pour ma fille mais elle fait une taille XS, aussi je me demande quel coton du groupe B ou A dois je utiliser pour obtenir cette taille? merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 01.02.2017 kl. 08:50:

Bonjour Stéphanie, cette robe est prévue pour un fil du groupe C, vérifiez les mesures d'après le schéma pour ajuster à la taille souhaitée, ou inspirez-vous d'un modèle similaire dans la taille et le fil souhaités pour ajuster en fonction de votre échantillon. Bon tricot!
