Top: Work 8-9-10 flower squares - see explanation above. Sew them tog in to a long strip - sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts. Pick up 220-244-272 sts (incl 2 edge sts in each side towards mid front) on needle size 3 mm with light pink in ch-row at the top of the crochet strip - pick up sts with 1 strand to get a nice transition. Insert 1 marker in piece after 55-61-68 sts and 1 marker after 165-183-204 sts. Work Pattern - see explanation above, but work the outermost 2 sts in each side in garter st. Remember the knitting tension! At the same time after 1 cm, inc at markers in each side: 2 sts 5 times every 7th-8th-10th row - inc 2 sts next to each other and work them in pattern so that pattern still fits = 240-264-292 sts.

When piece measures 23-24-26 cm, cast off 24-26-29 sts towards mid front for neck line. Continue to cast off towards the neck on every other row - see Knitting tip: 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 3 times = 12-12-12 sts remain on each shoulder. Then work Pattern, but work 1 st in each side in garter st. Cast off when piece measures 37-40-43 cm.

Continue to cast off towards the neck on every other row - see Knitting tip: 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 3 times = 12-12-12 sts remain on each shoulder.

What does " bow" mean in pattern , never heard of this thank you

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 08:07:

Dear Mrs Wright, a ch-bow is here a ch-space. This video shows how to crochet the square. Happy crocheting!

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:51:

Når der står: tag en maske løs af, hvad menes der så? En maske ret løs af eller en maske vrang løs af?

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 16:37:

Hej Gunvor. En maske löst af uden anden forklaring vil jeg tage som en maske ret lös af.

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:47:

Endnu et spørgsmål. Skal man tage masker op fra retsiden på den hæklede remse? Hvis man gør det bliver første pind derefter fra vrangsiden og man kan ikke starte mønster hvis hvis 1.p skal strikkes fra retsiden. Håber på snarlig svar så jeg kan komme igang med den flotte top :-)

DROPS Design 05.07.2016 kl. 14:53:

Hej Gunvor. Det staar der ikke noget om. Jeg ville göre det som er paenest og saa sörge for at 1. pind du strikker kommer paa retsiden.

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:44:

Flot top. Jeg forstår 1.p i mønsteret men ved pind nr. 2 skriver I: 2. p: Strik alle m glatstrik set fra retsiden" det er svært at vide hvad der er retsiden når ikke der står hvor man starter. Hvis pind nr. 2 er fra vrangiden, hvorfor så ikke bare skrive 2.p strik alle masker vrang? Håber på hurtigt svar så jeg kan komme igang med toppen:-)

DROPS Design 05.07.2016 kl. 14:36:

Hej Gunvor. Ja, det er saa den maade det er skrevet paa dengang. Men du skal strikke vr paa vrangen og r paa retten saa 2 p af mönstret vil blive glatstrik set fra retten....

Bonjour, j'allais commencer ce modèle et je viens de prendre connaissance de la question de Mamilo... j'ai donc fait un essai avant, et il me semble que la maille glissée est tricotée endroit TORSE, je crois que c'est le détail qui manque. Tricoté de cette façon, on retrouve le point des photos du tuto. Merci pour tous vos magnifiques modèles !

MAMILO 30.04.2016 - 18:43:

Bonjour, Malgré plusieurs essais le point tel qu'il est expliqué aboutit à un ouvrage qui part en biais vers la gauche. Logique puisqu'on passe la m par-dessus, même si elle est compensée car tricotée ensuite. Y a-t-il une explication manquante pour que le tricot soit bien droit comme sur la photo? D'avance merci pour votre réponse. Cordialement, Mamilo

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Mamilo, veillez bien à ce que les 2 m tricotées dans le point fantaisie soit alignées les unes au-dessus des autres, on répète ces 2 m sur l'endroit, et elles forment ainsi des lignes droites - sur l'envers, tricotez-les à l'envers, au rang suivant, veillez bien à tricoter ces mêmes 2 m = la m glissée au rang suiv sur l'end est la m tricotée à l'end au rang précédent sur l'endroit. Voir aussi un tuto en photos ici. Bon tricot!

Michèle 25.11.2015 - 09:35:

Ce modèle est très beau, malheureusement je vais tout défaire car le point le déforme en biais malgré mise en forme par trempage et repassage, rien n'y fait, il se déforme en quelques minutes. Il faut proposer un autre point. Je suis une tricoteuse experte et mon avis est fondé.

Leontine 08.02.2015 - 10:35:

Er staat geen telpatroon van de bloem bij, is het mogelijk die alsnog te plaatsen?

DROPS Design 09.02.2015 kl. 14:13:

Hoi Leontine. Wij hebben hiervoor helaas geen telpatroon alleen de geschreven beschrijving in het patroon.

SMITHA 28.08.2014 - 23:32:

CAN SLEEVES BE ADDED TO THIS PATTERN,IF SO COULD U GIVE ME A PATTERN

DROPS Design 29.08.2014 kl. 09:30:
