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.
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Work as far as 2 stitches before the marker thread in the side, 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. Repeat in the other side (= 4 stitches increased on the round). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly along the round, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 122 stitches) and divide the stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 12) = 10.1. In this example, increase after approx. every 10th stitch.

RAGLAN:
INCREASE EVERY 2ND ROUND:
Increase to raglan on each side of A.1 in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Start 1 stitch before A.1A, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, work A.1A-A.1C (there are 2 stitches increased to raglan in the diagrams), knit 1, make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs so that there are holes.

INCREASE EVERY 4TH ROUND:
ROUND 1: Start 1 stitch before A.1A: 1 yarn over, knit 1, work A.1a-A.1c, knit 1, 1 yarn over. Repeat before and after the next A.1a-A.1c.
ROUND 2: Knit the yarn overs so that there are holes.
ROUND 3: Start 2 stitches before A.1A: Knit 2 stitches together, 1 yarn over, knit 1, work A.1A-A.1C, knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch – no increase in stitches, but the row of holes is continued as before. Repeat before and after the next A.1A-A.1C.
ROUND 4: Knit the yarn overs, there will be holes.


DECREASE TIP (for the sleeve):
Decrease 2 stitches as follows: Work until there are 4 stitches left before the marker, knit 3 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased), knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), knit 3 stitches twisted together (= 2 stitches decreased).
Decrease 1 stitch as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. Cast on 118-122-122-126-126-134 stitches with circular needle size 3,5 mm / US 4 and Muskat. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, on the next to last round of the ridges increase 12-12-16-16-20-24 stitches evenly along the round – READ INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced) = 130-134-138-142-146-158 stitches. Change to circular needles 4 mm and work pattern as follows: Knit 19-20-21-22-23-26 stitches (= half the back piece), 1 yarn over, knit 1, A.1A (= 7 stitches), A.1B (= 12 stitches), A.1C (= 6 stitches) (= right sleeve), knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 38-40-42-44-46-52 stitches (= front piece), 1 yarn over, knit 1, A.1A, A.1B, A.1C (= left sleeve), knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 19-20-21-22-23-26 stitches (= half the back piece). The first increase to RAGLAN – see description above, is now finished = 138-142-146-150-154-166 stitches. From now onwards, the increases on the body and sleeves are different. On the body, you increase every 2nd round a total of 14-16-17-25-32-34 times and then every 4th round 4-5-6-3-0-0 times. On the sleeve, you increase every 2nd round (the increases are shown in diagram A.1) 21-25-28-30-32-34 times. Each time you have completed A.1A to A.1C once in height, continue with 2 more repeats of A.1B between A.1A and A.1C.

When you have increased a total of 21-25-28-30-32-34 times on the sleeves and 18-21-23-28-32-36 times on the front and back pieces, there will be 67-75-81-85-89-93 stitches on each sleeve, 76-84-90-102-112-126 stitches on the front and back pieces = 286-318-342-374-402-430 stitches in total. The yoke should now measure 17-20-22-23-24-25 cm / 6 3/4"-8"-8 3/4"-9"-9½"-9 3/4" from the neckline mid front and down. If the measurements are not correct, you need to continue with pattern on the sleeves and stockinette stitch on the front and back pieces until you get the right length.

The next round is worked as follows: Knit 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece), place the next 67-75-81-85-89-93 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches under the sleeve, knit the next 76-84-90-102-112-122 stitches (= front piece), place the next 67-75-81-85-89-93 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches under the sleeve, knit the last 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece).

BODY:
There are now 168-184-200-224-248-272 stitches on the body. Continue with stockinette stitch. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches which were cast on under the sleeves. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! When the piece measures 3 cm / 1'' increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread – READ INCREASE TIP-2! Increase in this way approx. every 6th-7th-6th-7th-10th-15th round, 15-14-16-13-10-7 times = 228-240-264-276-288-300 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch until the piece measures 36-35-35-36-37-38 cm / 14 1/4"-13 3/4"-13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14½"-15". Now work 2 ridges. Then work pattern as follows: Work according to diagram A.2 (= 19-20-22-23-24-25 repeats of 12 stitches on the first round). On the next to last round of A.2 (the round with the star) increase 3-5-3-5-1-3 stitches evenly along the round = 307-325-355-373-385-403 stitches on the round. Work 2 ridges. Now work pattern as follows: Work A.3A (= 7 stitches), A.3B (= 6 stitches) until there are 6 stitches left on the round, A.3C (= 6 stitches). When you have completed the whole of diagrams A.3a to A.3c in height, work the repeat one more time in height. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 2 ridges. Change back to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and bind off in knit.

SLEEVES:
Place the stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches which were cast on under the sleeve = 75-83-91-95-101-107 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches = mid under the sleeve. Continue with A.1B, the stitches which do not fit the pattern mid under the sleeve are worked in stockinette stitch. Continue with this pattern. When the piece measures 3 cm / 1'' start decreasing under the sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease 2 stitches on each side of the marker thread, every 2nd round 0-0-0-4-5-6 times and 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread every 5th-3rd-2nd-2nd-2nd-2nd round 7-10-13-5-4-3 times = 61-63-65-69-73-77 stitches. The stitches that do not fit the pattern under the sleeve are worked in stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 15-13-12-10-10-9 cm / 6"-5"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-3½" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes due to wider shoulder measurements and longer sleeve cap) change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 2 ridges. Change back to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and bind off in knit. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Kan det passe at diagramforklaring er ens for to tegn? / siger to masker ret sammen, men det gør \ også, mon ikke det ene \skal være 1 løst af, 1 ret, den løse over?

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 08:04:

Hej Gitte, så er det rettet, tusind tak for information! God dag! :)

Angelika 12.04.2018 - 20:13:

Danke für das schöne Modell! Ich bin fast fertig mit dem Kleid und es sieht ganz toll aus, hat eine schöne Passform und ist gut zu Stricken, die Anleitung ist für mich gut verständlich. Die Wolle Muskat hat ein sehr schönes Maschenbild und wirkt für bei dem Kleid sehr gleichmäßig und edel. Ich bin begeistert!

Cille Sigrun 26.03.2018 - 09:03:

Super lækker opskrift på en lækker kjole! :-)

Jos 28.02.2018 - 16:41:

Est-ce qu'il y a une moyen de tricoter ce morceau en commençant par le bas .

DROPS Design 28.02.2018 kl. 17:45:

Bonjour Jos, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. Vous pouvez recalculer/réécrire les explications si vous souhaitez le commencer par le bas. N'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide à votre magasin DROPS ou sur un forum de tricot si besoin. Bon tricot!

Doris 08.09.2017 - 15:25:

Hallo, die Raglanzunahme besteht aus 2 Masvhen rechts und je ein Umschlag vor und nach den Maschen, oder?

DROPS Design 08.09.2017 kl. 16:16:

Liebe Doris, die Raglanzunahmen sind an Rumpfteil und Ärmeln unterschiedlich, dh Sie werden je nach der Größe entweder nur am Vorder- und Rückenteil oder an den Ärmeln oder überall zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doris Thielen 30.07.2017 - 16:47:

So ein schönes Kleid ,leider ist die Anleitung total unverständlich, ich komme einfach nicht auf die angegebene maschenzahl bei Größe L. Schade!!!

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 10:56:

Liebe Frau Thielen, Maschenanzahl für Größe L stimmt: am Anfang beginnen Sie mit 132 M. Bei Vorder- und Rückenteil werden insgesamt 2 M x 17 + 2 M x 6 = 46 M zugenommen - bei den Ärmeln werden insgesamt 2 M x 27 = 56 M zugenommen. Dann haben Sie: 138 + 46 (Vorderteil) + 46 (Rückenteil) + 56 x 2 Ärmel = 342 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Viviana 24.07.2017 - 20:58:

Hallo, Ik brei veel van jullie patronen omdat ik de uitleg zo fijn vind. Maar bij dit patroon loop ik toch even vast. Er staat namelijk: . Elke keer wanneer u A.1A tot A.1C een keer in de hoogte hebt gebreid, ga dan verder met nog 2 herhalingen van A.1B tussen A.1A en A.1C. Betekend dit dat ik A.1A en A.1C moet stil leggen? Als ik dit doe dan wordt het midden deel van de mouw toch langer dan de rest? Kunnen jullie dit uitleggen? Ik zou zo graag dit jurkje willen verder breien ;-)

DROPS Design 25.07.2017 kl. 19:20:

Hoi Viviana, Elke keer dat je A.1A tm A.1C hebt gebreid staan er meer steken op de naald door de meerderingen die in het telpatroon zitten. Daarom maak je op de volgende herhaling in de hoogte, nog 2 herhalingen in de breedte er bij van A.2B.

Eva Rossen 20.06.2017 - 21:38:

Der er sket et eller andet med opskriften siden jeg startede med at strikke modellen - nu mangler pludseligt diagrammet til ærmernes hulmønster og billedet af kjolen... Kan disse venligst tilføjes igen ?

DROPS Design 21.06.2017 kl. 07:24:

Hei Eva. Usikker på hva som kan ha skjedd, men på vår nettside vieses nå 1 bildet, 1 målskisse og 5 diagrammer. Så alt skal være ok til denne oppskriften.

Yiuvan 30.04.2017 - 17:55:

M encantaría realizar este diseño pero no entiendo los patrones soy principiante
