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.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round, purl the yarn over twisted to prevent a hole.

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

SKIRT:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down.
Cast on 90-105-120-135-135-150 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Knit 1 round. The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, purl 1, knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue the rib in this way. When the piece measures 4-4-4-5-6-7 cm work a row of holes as follows: * Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, purl 2, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, purl 2, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, purl 1, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, purl 2 *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue with rib until the piece measures 8-9-9-11-13-15 cm. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Insert 1 marker - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Now work as follows: * Purl 6, A.1 (= 9 stitches) *, work from *-* to end of round (= 6-7-8-9-9-10 repeats of A.1). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue the pattern as follows: Work A.1 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in height, A.2 1-1-1-1-1-1 time in height, A.3 1-1-1-2-2-2 times in height, A.4 1-1-1-1-1-1 time in height and A.5 2-2-3-3-3-4 times in height.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3 cm increase 1 stitch at the beginning of every purl section (= 6-7-8-9-9-10 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 1½-1½-2-2-2-2 cm a total of 10-9-9-9-10-11 times, but increase alternately at the end and beginning of each purl section (i.e. the next time you increase, increase at the end of each purl section, then at the beginning of each purl section, etc.). When you have completed A.1 to A.5, there are 174-196-224-252-261-300 stitches on the needle. Continue with A.5 until the piece measures approx. 17-17-21-24-26-29 cm from the marker (or to desired length). Work 2 RIDGES over all stitches – see description above and cast off with knit. The whole skirt measures approx. 26-27-31-36-40-45 cm from the cast-on edge and down.

TIE CORD:
Cut 3 strands Merino Extra Fine of 3½ meters each. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist on its own. Tie a knot in each end. Start mid front and thread the cord up and down through the row of holes. Tie a bow mid front.

CROCHET EDGE:
Crochet an edge at the bottom of the skirt with Merino Extra Fine and hook size 3.5 mm as follows: 1 double crochet in first stitch, * 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in the first chain stitch worked, skip forwards approx. 1½ cm, work 1 double crochet in the next stitch *, work from *-* to end of round, finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet.

Hej. Jeg vil gerne strikke nederdelen i garnet Belle. vil det kunne lade sig gøre?\\r\\nMed venlig hilsen Vibeke

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 11:20:

Hej Vibeke, ja DROPS Belle tilhører samme garngruppe B som DROPS Merino Extra Fine. Skriv Merino XF og garnforbrug og 1 tråd, ind i vores omregner så får du garnforbruget i DROPS Belle. God fornøjelse!

Luisa 02.05.2018 - 21:58:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team! Sind die rechten Reihen (zwischen den Loch-Reihen) in dem Musterdiagramm quasi die "Rückreihen" oder muss ich jene noch dazustricken? Ich hoffe, ich habe mich verständlich ausgedrückt.

DROPS Design 03.05.2018 kl. 09:27:

Liebe Luisa, ja genau, die Diagramme zeigen alle Maschen und Reihen vom Muster, dh jede Reihe (bzw Runde) wird rechts nach links stricken. Die Runden zwischen die Löcherrunde werden rechts gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hei, strikket dette nydelige skjørtet til mitt barnebarn. Imidlertid lurer jeg på om det er liten i str? Strikket selv i 3-4 år til en 2 åring, men det ble altfor lite både i lengde og bredde. Brukte imidlertid sandnes alpakka garn istedet da, kan det ha noe å si kanskje. Hvilket annet garn, gjerne i noe med bomull/ull blanding kan brukes til dette mønstret?

Yvonne 27.03.2018 - 16:10:

Hallo liebes Drops Team,habe das Model in Drops Lima Rubinrot Gr. 122/128 fertig gestrickt.Absolut wunderschön und bezaubernd!!! Vielen Dank für eure tollen Anleitungen! Grüße Yvonne

Kuinka silmukat kasvaa mallineuletta tehdessä? Ymmärrän, että silmukoita lisätään nurjaa raitaa tehdessä eli lisätään nurjia silmukoita.

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 14:20:

Kyllä, silmukoita lisätään nurjiin raitoihin. Myös mallineuleessa (piirrosten A.2 ja A.4 toiseksi viimeisellä kerroksella) lisätään silmukoita langankierroin.

Tita Koski 16.02.2018 - 11:25:

Neulon hametta 2-vuotiaalle. Kysymys mallineuleen toistoista: pitääkö kertaalleen neulotut mallikerrat 1-5 toistaa 1 kertaa ( kuten ohjeessa sanotaan ) eli siis tehdä kutakin mallikertaa yhteensä kaksi kertaa, vai tarkoittaako ohje, että pienessä koossa kutakin mallikertaa neulotaan vain sen yhden kerroksen verran?

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 14:34:

Hei, koossa 2 vuotta piirrokset A.1, A.2, A.3 ja A.4 neulotaan kerran (kokonaisuudessaan), piirros A.5 neulotaan 2 kertaa.

Jag stickar storlek 7/8 år . I mönstret står det att jag ska ha 252 maskor när kjolen är klar . Jag har bara 200 maskor, jag har gjort ökning på varje avigt parti. . Vad har jag gjort för fel?

DROPS Design 26.01.2018 kl. 08:17:

Hei Birgitta. Du har 153 masker på pinnen når du har strikket A.1 1 i høyden, når du strikker A.2 øker du på siste omg av diag og har 153 masker på pinnen. Når du er ferdig med A.4 (økninger på siste omg på diagrammet) og A.5 har du 171 masker på pinnen. I tillegg til økningene du gjør i diagrammene (A.2 og A.4), må du også huske å øke når arbeidet måler 3 cm fra vrangborden, 1 maske på begynnelsen av hvert vrangparti (= 9 masker økt pr omgang). Øk slik på hver 2.cm totalt 9 ganger. Da blir det 9 økte maske pr omgang 9 ganger = 81 masker + de andre 171 masker = 252 masker. God Fornøyelse!

Birgitta Medeen 25.01.2018 - 18:08:

Skickade ett mail förut men inte fått något svar . Har ni fått mitt mail angående antalet maskor på kjolen.

DROPS Design 26.01.2018 kl. 08:21:

Hei Birgitta. Vi har ikke mottatt noen tidligere mail, men vi har svart på ditt spørsmål du sendte 25.01.2018 kl. 19:03. Håper det hjelper deg med maskeantallet. mvh Drops design

Daniela 19.12.2017 - 19:31:

Wenn 200g für 134/140 reichen sollen, wieso bitte fehlt mir dann noch überwiegend das dritte Mal M5, von der Kordel und dem Häkelrand ganz zu schweigen? Wer probiert das vorher aus oder berechnet das? So große Differenz kommt nicht von festerem oder lockerem Stricken.

DROPS Design 20.12.2017 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Daniela, danke für den Hinweis, unser Designteam wird das mal schauen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sara Watson 15.11.2017 - 17:49:

Just finished this as a birthday gift for my 8 year old granddaughter. I am in love. I can barely wait to give it to her. I used ALL but about 8 inches of the merino extra fine. I wish I could post a photo. Pattern says to suggest a name. I suggest Twirly or Twirly Girl, because it has considerable flair at bottom.
