----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armhole, then work front and back piece separately.

Cast on 480-528-576-624-720-768 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with Alpaca. Knit 1 round, then work as follows: * Knit 1, purl 3 *, repeat from *-*. Continue rib like this. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', decrease all 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches by purling 2 together = 360-396-432-468-540-576 stitches. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', decrease every other 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 300-330-360-390-450-480 stitches. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', decrease the remaining 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 240-264-288-312-360-384 stitches. When rib measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5, knit 1 round then work as follows: Work A.1 over all stitches (= 20-22-24-26-30-32 repetitions of A.1). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 200-220-240-260-300-320 stitches on round. Insert 2 marker threads in piece; 1 at the beginning of round and 1 after 100-110-120-130-150-160 stitches = sides.

Work as follows: Stockinette stitch over the first 110-120-130-140-160-170 stitches, A.2 over the next 80-90-100-110-130-140 stitches (= A.2 is directly above 8-9-10-11-13-14 repetitions of A.1), stockinette stitch over the last 10 stitches. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', decrease 1 stitch on each side of markers in the side (= 4 stitches decreased) - READ DECREASE TIP BODY! Decrease every 6-6-7-7-7-7 cm / 2½"-2½"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4'' 5 times in total = 180-200-220-240-280-300 stitches. When piece measures approx. 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm / 15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼'' and 3 rounds remain before an entire repetition of A.2 work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, over 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side (= 6-6-7-7-8-9 stitches on each side of each marker), continue the remaining stitches as before. NOTE: Begin with purl 1 round over the 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side, knit 1 round over the 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side - 1 round remains in A.2. Work this round as follows: bind off the first 3-3-4-4-5-7 stitches, purl 3, work the next 78-88-96-106-122-130 stitches as before, purl 3, bind off the next 6-6-8-8-10-14 stitches, purl 3, work the next 78-88-96-106-124-130 stitches, purl 3, bind off the last 3-3-4-4-5-7 stitches. NOW FINISH EACH PART SEPARATELY:

BACK PIECE:
Slip the first 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches on a stitch holder, now work over the last 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches on needle (= the part where A.2 is) – begin from right side: Continue with GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - over 3 stitches in each side, 9-9-18-18-27-25 stitches in stockinette stitch, pattern A.2 as before over the next 60-70-60-70-70-80 stitches ( = 6-7-6-7-7-8 repetitions), 9-9-18-18-27-25 stitches in stockinette stitch, 3 stitches in garter stitch. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 stitch inside 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side - READ DECREASE TIP ARMHOLE. Decrease every 6th row 4-0-0-0-0-0 times, every 4th row 2-5-9-6-6-2 times, then every other row 0-4-4-10-17-23 times = 72-76-76-80-84-86 stitches. When A.2 has been worked 2-2-3-3-4-4 times vertically after division for armholes, work 2 rows in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, then work 3 ridges over all stitches. Bind off knitting from right side.

FRONT PIECE:
Slip the 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches from stitch holder back on needle. Continue with stockinette stitch and 3 stitches in garter stitch, decrease the same way as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when 14-14-28-28-42-42 rows in stockinette stitch have been worked, work A.2 over the middle 60-70-60-70-70-80 stitches, continue the same remaining stitches as before, continue with decreases in the sides. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 2 rows in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, then work 3 ridges over all stitches (same number of rows has been worked on back piece and front piece). After all decreases are done, 72-76-76-80-84-86 stitches remain on needle.

On next row slip the first 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches on a stitch holder (work them first), bind off the next 38-42-42-44-46-48 stitches, continue to work over the last 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches on needle. Work in garter stitch over these stitch until strap measures approx. 12-14-8-12-6-8 cm / 4 3/4"-5½"-3"-4 3/4"-2½"-3", try the top on and adjust the length if needed. Bind off. Slip the first 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches back on needle, work the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew strap from front piece on to back piece.

----------------------------------------------------------

SHOULDER PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts and sewn together mid back.

Cast on 175-199-223-247-271-295 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with Alpaca. Purl 1 row from wrong side, then work as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain and finish with knit 1 and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', decrease all 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches by purling 2 together from right side = 133-151-169-187-205-223 stitches. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', decrease every other 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 112-127-142-157-172-187 stitches. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', decrease the remaining 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 91-103-115-127-139-151 stitches. When rib measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5, purl 1 row from wrong side, then work as follows from right side: 3 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 84-96-108-120-132-144 stitches (= 7-8-9-10-11-12 repetitions of A.1), knit 1 and finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 77-87-97-107-117-127 stitches on row.

What are the bust sizes in inches for each size of the top

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 08:40:

Dear Sandra, you will find all finished measurements in each size in the measurement chart at the bottom of the pattern. They are taken flat from side to side (in cm). Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Happy knitting!

Karin 03.08.2017 - 13:05:

Ik heb in mijn breiwerk het effect van knobbels, volgens de afbeelding zou dit glad moeten zijn. Het is op de plaats waar ik de 2 st samenbrei en 1 steek overhaal. Hoe kan ik dit oplossen aub? Ik zou het wel heel sterk moeten aantrekken bij het opspannen. Ik vrees dat dit niet gaat lukken. Alvast bedankt voor uw antwoord.

DROPS Design 06.08.2017 kl. 22:55:

Hoi Karin, Wat er precies gebeurt waardoor er knobbels ontstaan, kan ik vanaf hier jammer genoeg niet zien. Misschien moet je iets losser breien. Bekijk evt. ook even deze video over hoe je 2 st. samenbreit en 1 overhaalt:

Marita Kjørsvik 21.06.2017 - 21:29:

Jeg ble usikker på om3rett og tre vrang stemmer. strikker toppen. Jeg får heller ikka antall masker etter felling til å stemme?, valgte xl etter målene på bildet, det ble alt for stort. Er vanligvis M, men målene stemmer ikke. Så nå at det en plass står en rett og trevrang på vrangborden, hva er riktig?

DROPS Design 22.06.2017 kl. 08:53:

Hei Marita. For at du skal få målene til å stemme, må du sjekke at du får den strikkefastheten som er oppgitt i oppskriften. Legg opp 624 m (str. xl), strikk 1 omg rett, deretter strikkes det 1 rett, 3 vrang, gjenta dette omg ut. Når arb måler 2 cm felles alle 3 vrang til 2 vrang = 468 m. Når arb måler 3 cm felles annenhver 2 vrang til 1 vrang = 390 m på pinnen. Når arb måler 4 cm felles de resterende 2 vrang til 1 vrang =312 m igjen på pinnen. Nå har du 1 rett, 1 vrang hele omg = 312 m. Nå starter du på A.1 og når A.1 er strikket 1 gang i høyden er det også felt 52 m (2 m felt på hver rapport av A.1) = 312 m – 52 felte m = 260 m på pinnen etter A.1 er strikket 1 gang i høyden. God Fornøyelse!

Marita Kjørsvik 20.06.2017 - 21:32:

Hei. Lurer på om oppskriften stemmer. Antall masker stemmer ikke nårman har felt. Er det riktig med tre rett og tre vrang, dadet ser ut som bølgemønstret på bildet ikke ser så tett ut. Er det bare vrang masker som skal felles? Ingen rette? Snakker im borden nede.

DROPS Design 21.06.2017 kl. 07:28:

Hei Marita. Kan du spesifisere litt mer? Hva strikker du, toppen eller skulderstykket?

Marita Kjørsvik 16.06.2017 - 12:48:

Hei, lurer på om det er feil i oppskriften. Får ikke antall masker til å stemme før og etter inntak. Dessuten syns jeg ikke mønsteret med 3 rett og tre vrang stemmer med bildet? Der syns jeg det ser ut som det er større bølgemønster i nedre kant enn det blir med tre rett og tre vrang. Og stemmer det at det er kun vrang masker som skal felles og ikke noe på rettmaskene? Setter stor pris på raskt svar. Mvh Marita Kjørsvik

DROPS Design 22.06.2017 kl. 08:58:

Hei Marita. Se svaret over :)

Benedetta 09.06.2017 - 22:12:

Buonasera,sto facendo la Tg S .Sono arrivata al punto che bisogna lavorare a legaccio sulle 6 m prima e dopo il segnapunti ,ma a lato del segnaposti ci sono solo 5 m dopo le diminuzioni del corpo.Potete aiutarmi?grazie

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 22:35:

Buonasera Benedetta. È corretto che rimangano 5 m. Deve iniziare a lavorare le 6 m a legaccio alla terzultima riga del diagramma A2. In questo modo la maglia che manca è una maglia rasata del diagramma A2. Buon lavoro!

Sonja Demerlier 09.06.2017 - 06:29:

Als je de derde keer moet minderen in de boord (van 3 st averechts naar 1st) eerst moet je van 3 st averrecht naar 2st, 2st naar 1st, dan staat er geschreven van 2st averechts naar 1st maar da kan niet je heb mar 1st averrecht over

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 09:00:

Hoi Sonja, Bij de tweede keer minderen (dus bij een hoogte van 3 cm) minder je iedere andere 2 steken averecht tot 1 steek averecht. Dus je mindert niet alle 2 steken averecht, maar de helft. De derde keer mindere je de andere helft van de 2 steken averecht naar 1 steek. Veel breiplezier!

Benedetta 31.05.2017 - 13:16:

Grazie mille!

Benedetta 30.05.2017 - 22:46:

Buonasera,dopo le coste devo fare le diminuzioni nelle m a rovescio.Non capisco come diminuire.Devo diminuire insieme la m rov con la m dir?Grazie

DROPS Design 31.05.2017 kl. 07:09:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Abbiamo corretto il testo. Per diminuire nelle coste, deve lavorare, nei gruppi di maglie lavorate a rovescio, 2 maglie insieme a rovescio. Le coste diventeranno prima coste 2 m rovescio, 1 maglia diritto, poi coste 1 maglia rovescio, 1 maglia diritta. Buon lavoro!
