DRESS:

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

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.10. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly along the row, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 25) = 3.84. In other words, in this example you increase after approx. every 4 stitches.
Increase by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Decrease on each side of the marker thread mid under the sleeve as follows: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the stitch with the marker thread. Increase as follows: Start just before the stitch with the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with marker thread), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round, purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for the buttonholes on the right band at the back (when the garment is worn).
1 buttonhole = knit the second and third stitch from the edge together and make 1 yarn over. On the next row, knit the yarn overs so that there are holes.
Decrease for the buttonholes when the piece measures:
SIZE 0/6 MONTHS: 2, 5 and 8 cm / 3/4", 2" and 3 1/8''.
SIZE 6/12 MONTHS: 2, 5 and 8 cm / 3/4", 2" and 3 1/8''.
SIZE 12/18 MONTHS: 2, 6 and 10 cm / 3/4", 2 3/8" and 4''.
SIZE 2 YEARS: 2, 6 and 10 cm / 3/4", 2 3/8" and 4''.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
The piece is worked top down. It is worked back and forth from mid back until the band at the back is finished, then the piece is worked in the round to desired length (normal dress length or long dress) – see description in the text.

YOKE:
Cast on 50-54-54 (58) stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Cotton Merino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 21 stitches evenly along the row (increase after approx. every 2nd stitch and do not increase over the outermost 3 stitches in each side) = 71-75-75 (79) stitches on the needle.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (start mid back – NOTE: Do NOT work the stitches whilst inserting the marker threads): Skip the first 10-11-11 (12) stitches (= right back piece when the garment is worn), insert 1 marker thread in the next stitch, skip the next 12 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the next stitch, skip the next 20-22-22 (24) stitches (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread in the next stitch, skip the next 12 stitches (= sleeve) and insert the last marker thread in the next stitch (there are now 13-14-14 (15) stitches on the row after the last marker thread (= left back piece).
READ THE WHOLE OF THE NEXT SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work stockinette stitch back and forth from mid back, but the 3 outermost stitches in each side are worked in garter stitch (= bands). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE and remember BUTTONHOLE on the right band – see description above.
AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side, increase to RAGLAN on each side of the 4 marker threads – see description above (= 8 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 2nd row (i.e. every row from the right side) a total of 11-13-15 (16) times = 159-179-195 (207) stitches. After the final increase to raglan work the next row from the wrong side as follows: Work 25-28-30 (32) stitches as before (= left back piece), place the next 34-38-42 (44) stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8 (8) new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve), work the next 44-50-54 (58) stitches as before (= front piece), place the next 34-38-42 (44) stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8 (8) new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve) and work the remaining 22-25-27 (29) stitches as before (= right back piece). The yoke is now finished and the body and sleeves are worked separately.

BODY:
Insert 1 marker in the piece – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Start mid back, lay the 3 band stitches on the left back piece under the 3 band stitches on the right back piece (so that the band with the buttonholes is on top). Work in the round and knit 1 round over all stitches and AT THE SAME TIME knit the stitches from the two bands together 2 and 2 = 100-112-124 (132) stitches on the needle. Continue working stockinette stitch in the round for 1-2-2 (3) cm / 1/4"-3/4"-3/4" (1") – decrease AT THE SAME TIME 4-8-12 (12) stitches evenly along the first round = 96-104-112 (120) stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been completed, change to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Knit 1 round where you increase 25-29-33 (37) stitches evenly – READ INCREASE TIP = 121-133-145 (157) stitches. Continue to work pattern in the round as follows: A.2A (= 2 stitches), A.2B (= 12 stitches) a total of 9-10-11 (12) times and A.2C (= 11 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way, but follow the description onwards for the desired length (dress of normal length or long dress).

DRESS OF NORMAL LENGTH:
When A.2 has been completed 1 time in height in all sizes, continue with pattern in the same way, but now work A.3 instead of A.2. When A.3 has been completed 1 time in height you have increased 2 stitches in each repeat of the lace pattern = 141-155-169 (183) stitches on the needle. Continue working pattern as before, but now work A.4 instead of A.3. When A.4 has been worked 1-1-2 (2) times in height (or to desired length) work A.5 instead of A.4. After A.5 there are 161-177-193 (209) stitches on the needle. Now work pattern according to diagram A.9 in the same way for approx. 5 cm / 2'', i.e. work A.9A (= 2 sts), A.9B (= 16 stitches) a total of 9-10-11 (12) times and A.9C (= 15 stitches). Work 4 rounds stockinette stitch. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work A.1 in the round over all the stitches before LOOSELY binding off (NOTE: On round 5 in A.1 knit the last stitch of the round). The dress measures approx. 36-38-47 (49) cm / 14 1/4"-15"-18½" (19 1/4") from the shoulder down.

LONG DRESS:
When A.2 has been completed 1 time in height in all sizes, continue with pattern in the same way, but now work A.3 instead of A.2. When A.3 has been completed 1 time in height you have increased 2 stitches in each repeat of the lace pattern = 141-155-169 (183) stitches. Continue working pattern as before, but now work A.4 instead of A.3. When A.4 has been worked 2-2-3 (3) times in height, work pattern in the same way, but now with A.5 instead of A.4. When A.5 has been completed 1 time in height you have increased 2 stitches in each repeat of the lace pattern = 161-177-193 (209) stitches. Continue working pattern as before, but with A.6 instead of A.5. When A.6 has been completed 2 times in height in all sizes (or to desired length), work A.7 instead of A.6. When A.7 has been completed 1 time in height you have increased 2 stitches in each repeat of the lace pattern = 181-199-217 (235) stitches. Work 1 repeat of A.8 in height. After A.8 there are 201-221-241 (261) stitches on the needle. Now work pattern according to diagram A.10 in the same way for approx. 5 cm / 2'', i.e. work A.10A (= 2 stitches), A.10B (= 20 stitches) a total of 9-10-11 (12) times and A.10C (= 19 stitches). Work 4 rounds stockinette stitch. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work A.1 in the round over all stitches before LOOSELY binding off (NOTE: On round 5 in A.1 knit the last stitch on the round). The dress measures approx. 80-82-91 (93) cm / 31½"-32 1/4"-35 3/4" (36½") from the shoulder down.

BOTH DRESSES:

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the thread on one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 round and knit up in addition 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8 (8) new stitches mid under the sleeve = 40-44-50 (52) stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches (= the round begins mid under the sleeve) – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' in all sizes decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 3-2½-2 (2) cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-3/4" (3/4") a total of 4-6-8 (8) times = 32-32-34 (36) stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 16-18-20 (23) cm / 6 1/4"-7"-8" (9"). Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work 2 RIDGES – see description above, before loosely binding off with knit. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

PICOT EDGE:
Work a picot edge at the bottom of both sleeves with crochet hook size 3 mm / C as follows: 1 single crochet in the first stitch, * 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch worked, skip 2 stitches on the sleeve, 1 single crochet in the next stitch *, repeat from *-*, but finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the single crochet at the beginning of the round (instead of 1 single crochet in the next stitch).
Work the same picot edge along the neckline in the transition between the garter stitch edge and the stockinette stitch section on the yoke – NOTE: The edge is worked top down.

ASSEMBLY:
Fasten 3 buttons on the left band at the back.
Thread the silk ribbon up and down through the row of holes on the yoke (start and finish mid front) and tie a bow mid front.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (for mid piece on the back of the hat):
Decrease inside the outermost stitch in garter stitch in each side. All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease as follows after the first stitch in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
Decrease as follows before the last stitch in garter stitch: Start 2 stitches before the last stitch in garter stitch and knit 2 together.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 70-78-82 (90) stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Cotton Merino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 7-3-7 (3) stitches evenly along the row = 63-75-75 (87) stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.2A (= 2 stitches), A.2B (= 12 stitches) a total of 4-5-5 (6) times, A.2C (= 11 stitches) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 12-13-14 (15) cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½" (6") work 1 ridge over all stitches. Cut the strand. Now place the outermost 23-28-28 (33) stitches in each side on separate threads or extra needle = 17-19-19 (21) stitches left on the row (= mid piece at the back of the hat). Work garter stitch back and forth over the mid piece AT THE SAME TIME as the last stitch on each row (both from the right and wrong side) is knitted together with the first stitch on the thread/extra needle. Continue in this way. AT THE SAME TIME when the mid piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' in all sizes, decrease 1 stitch in each side of the mid piece – READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat the decrease when the piece measures 8-8-9 (9) cm / 3"-3"-3½" (3½") = 13-15-15 (17) stitches left on the mid piece. Continue working until all the stitches from the threads/extra needle in each side have been worked together with the mid piece, then bind off the 13-15-15 (17) stitches on the mid piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Knit up from the right side approx. 66-72-76 (82) stitches along the bottom edge of the hat with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work pattern according to diagram A.1 with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side (first row = from the wrong side). When A.1 has been completed, bind off in knit from the right side.

PICOT EDGE:
Work a picot edge at the front of the hat. Start from the right side at the bottom in the corner and work with hook size 3 mm / C as follows: 1 single crochet in the first stitch, * 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch worked, skip 2 stitches on the hat, 1 single crochet in the next stitch *, repeat from *-* along the whole of the front edge of the hat. Cut and fasten the strand.

Thread the silk ribbon up and down through the row of holes at the bottom of the hat.

Hi! It's such a beautiful dress, I can't wait to start the project with the DROPS yarn I bought :) Quick question though... Do I need to knit two ridges and only then (row 5) should start increasing the number of stitches? Also, how do I make the edge look neat? Should I skip the first stitch or is there another technique I should be using? Thank you very much in advance!!

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:11:

Dear Julia, that's correct you will increase evenly on 5th row (= after the 2 ridges = 4 rows with K sts). Edge sts are worked in garter st (= 3 sts in garter st on each side for the button bands). Happy knitting!

Isabel Gouveia 20.06.2018 - 00:12:

Boa noite, Penso que não me fiz entender: "= 121-133-145 (157) malhas. Continuar em redondo da seguinte maneira: A.2A (= 2 malhas), A.2B (= 12 malhas) ao todo 9-10-11 (12) vezes e A.2C (= 11 malhas).\" é nesta parte que eu estou a ter problemas, tenho as 133 malhas mas não consigo fazer o padrão A.2 penso que é para começar em A, continuar B=12 e seguir C=11 e voltar a A e assim sucessivamente. Obrigada

Isabel Lopes 17.06.2018 - 21:03: https://www.garnstud ...

Boa tarde, Depois dos aumentos fico com 133 malhas e quando tento começar a primeira carreira do esquema chego ao fim e faltam malhas, começo A.2A (2m) A.2b(12m) A.2c(11m)total 25malhas a repetir 25x5=125 sobram 8 malhas para as 133. Pode ajudar por favor

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 10:05:

Bom dia, Uma vez que quando se fazem os aumentos, fica-se com mais 8 malhas, parece-nos que lhe falta um aumento. 33-125 = 8. Deverá fazer mais um aumento para o raglan para ter o número exacto de malhas. Bom tricô!

Siff Vanghøj Faudel 13.06.2018 - 21:40:

Hej. Jeg er i tvivl om, om mønstrene til kjolen skal læses fra venstre mod højre eller fra højre mod venstre. Kan I hjælpe mig med et svar på det?

DROPS Design 14.06.2018 kl. 07:42:

Hei Siff. Mønster leses fra høyre mot venstre, fra nederst til øverst. Du begynner derfor nederst i høyre hjørne og leser mot venstre, rad for rad oppover. God fornøyelse

Siff Vanghøj Faudel 13.06.2018 - 21:38:

Hej. Jeg er i tvivl om, om mønstrene til kjolen skal læses fra venstre mod højre eller fra højre mod venstre. Kan I hjælpe mig med et svar på det?

Anna 18.04.2018 - 19:44:

Hei. jeg forstår ikke "legg de 3 stolpe-m på venstre bakstk under de 3 stolpe-m på høyre bakstk"

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 15:27:

Hei Anna Dette skal du gjøre for at det skal gå an å kneppe igjen plagget når det er ferdig – siden knappestolpene bare går ned til midten av ryggen, må de to stolpene avsluttes på samme sted. Ellers vil du ikke få kneppet igjen. Altså: bærestykke er ferdig og bolen skal strikkes rundt på rundpinne, og da må stolpen med knappehull ligge over stolpen med knapper. Dette gjør du ved å legge dem over hverandre og strikke maskene fra den ene rett sammen med masken som ligger over fra den andre stolpen. God fornøyelse

Czy można zrobić tą sukienkę z włóczki Drops Safran nr 17 kolor biały - 100% bawełna?

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 10:23:

Witaj Elu, możesz użyć DROPS Safran, ale ta włóczka jest cieńsza (Grupa A), więc trzebaby się pobawić i dopasować wzór. Najlepiej użyć linku do zamiennika włóczek (w każdym wzorze, pod materiałami). Pozdrawiamy

Olga Rusyniakova 01.04.2018 - 23:13:

Ako mam pliesť vzor A.2

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 22:32:

Dobrý den, Olgo, postupujte podle schématu A.2 zdola nahoru, od pravého dolního rohu. Zobrazeny jsou lícové i rubové řady a vzor je zakreslen tak, jak oka vypadají na lícové straně pleteniny. Hodně zdaru!

Bouquin Martine 16.03.2018 - 21:28:

\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nJe suis désolée je ne comprends pas .. plutôt expérimentée en tricot pourtant !! \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nMerci pour votre aide précieuse Martine

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:06:

Bonjour Mme Bouquin, si vous tricotez un échantillon sur 25 m (= A = 2 m, B = 12 m, C = 11 m), vous conserverez toujours le même nombre de mailles: au rang 1, on diminue un total de 8 m et on fait un total de 8 jetés sur ce même rang: le nombre de mailles reste bien le même, au rang suivant sur l'envers, décalez vos marqueurs pour conserver le bon nombre de mailles dans chaque motif à répéter et continuez ainsi. Au rang9, vous diminuez 8 m de nouveau sur les 3 diagrammes, compensés par un total de 8 jetés. Bon tricot!

Bouquin Martine 16.03.2018 - 21:27:

Suite..je vous explique ce que je tricote : je commence par 2 m endroit, 1 jeté, je glisse une m.et tricote la suivante je passe la m. glissée par dessus et je refais un jeté , je tricote ensuite une m. je fais un jeté je tricote ensuite 2 m. ensembles et je refais un jeté et je tricote deux m. et ..ensuite deux m. ensemble ( triangle sur votre schéma) et ensuite je tricote une m. et bien déjà la je me retrobuve avec une m. de plus que votre schéma j obtiens 13 m. au lieu de 12
