DECREASE TIP:

Decrease as follows after the 3 edge stitches: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before the 3 edge stitches: Start 2 stitches before the 3 edge stitches and knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The piece is worked back and forth in 2 parts which are sewn together to finish.

BACK PIECE:
The whole of the back piece is worked back and forth with GARTER STITCH and STRIPES - see description above.
Cast on 72-78-84-92-100-110 stitches with circular needle size 5.5 mm and 2 strands Safran (denim blue + denim blue). Work garter stitch and stripes as described above.
When the piece measures 8 cm, decrease 1 stitch in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 8-8-8-8-9-9 cm a total of 4 times in each side = 64-70-76-84-92-102 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm, cast off 3-3-4-5-5-6 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows for armholes = 58-64-68-74-82-90 stitches. Then decrease 1 stitch for the armhole in each side every 2nd row (i.e. every row from the right side) a total of 3-6-7-9-12-15 times in each side – read DECREASE TIP = 52-52-54-56-58-60 stitches.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 38-40-42-42-44-46 cm, divide for the split mid back (this is done after 1 knitted row from the right side). Place half the stitches on 1 thread and finish each side separately.
Continue with stripes and garter stitch and continue to decrease for armhole in the side if necessary, on each row from the right side until all the decreases have been completed.
When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm, cast off 13-13-14-14-15-15 stitches for the neck at the beginning of the row from mid back. Continue working as before and cast off 1 stitch for the neck at the beginning of the next row from mid back = 12-12-12-13-13-14 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working with 2 strands white until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm. Cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other side in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on as for back piece and follow the instructions for back piece until the piece measures 46-48-50-51-53-55 cm. Decreases for armholes have now been completed and there are 52-52-54-56-58-60 stitches on the needle.
Place the middle 14-14-16-16-16-16 stitches on a thread for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue with garter stitch and stripes and continue to cast off for neck every 2nd row (i.e. every row from the right side) as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 2-2-2-2-2-2 times and then 1 stitch 3-3-3-3-4-4 times = 12-12-12-13-13-14 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm. Cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other shoulder in the same way. 

ASSEMBLY:
Sew side seams from the armholes down – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is flat, but stop when you still have 20 cm left at the bottom of each side (= split). Sew shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge.

NECK EDGE:
Start from the right side mid back and knit up approx. 68 to 84 stitches (including stitches from the thread in front) with circular needle size 5 mm and 2 strands white. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Then cast off with knit from the right side.
Divide the lace ribbon into 2 equal lengths and sew a length to each side of the split at the back, at top of neck. Tie a bow mid back.

Wenn ich es mit einem Faden Safran in L stricken möchte, wie viel Maschen muss ich dann aufnehmen? Kann ich das irgendwie umrechnen? Danke

DROPS Design 08.08.2018 kl. 13:22:

Liebe Anette, dieses Top wird mit 2 Fäden Safran gestrickt, dh die Maschenprobe wird nicht die gleiche sein wie mit nur 1 Faden und die Anleitung sollen Sie dann ganz anpassen, je nach Ihrer eigenen Maschenprobe. Am besten stricken Sie mit 2 Fäden Safran - wie in der anleitung oder mit nur 1 Faden Garngruppe C - siehe unseren Garnumrechner. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Rebekka Schlenker 09.07.2018 - 09:13:

Liebes DROPS-Team, würde es Sinn machen, die Baumwolle vor dem Verarbeiten in Wasser zu tauchen und trocknen zu lassen, damit das fertige Strickstück später beim Waschen nicht mehr einläuft? Danke und liebe Grüße Rebekka

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 09:45:

Liebe Frau Schlenker, hier können Sie wichtige Pflegehinweise lesen, für weitere Auskünfte, nehmen Sie bitten Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden auf. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Daniela Stoll 18.06.2018 - 10:42:

Liebes DROPS-Team ich habe die gesamte Höhe des Rückenteils erreicht bevor die Streifenfolgefertig ist.Beende ich nun die Arbeit oder Stricke ich erst die Streifen laut Anleitung fertig?

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 13:47:

Liebe Frau Stroll, die Streifen beenden mit 2 Fäden Weiß und 5 Krausrippen - oder bis zum fertigen Maß dh mit 2 Fäden Weiß fertig stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Daniela Stoll 13.06.2018 - 19:42:

Sorry Liebes Dropsteam habe meine Frage in den Kommentaren gepostet.Ich wollte wissen ob bei dem Top alle Maschen kraus rechts gestrickt werden oder ob man Randmaschen macht?

DROPS Design 14.06.2018 kl. 08:21:

Liebe Frau Stroll, alle Maschen werden kraus rechts gestrickt, dh auch die Randmaschen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Daniela Stoll 13.06.2018 - 17:38:

Werden bei diesem Top keine Randmaschen gestrickt?

Tamara 17.04.2018 - 21:21:

Liebes Drops Team, Ich habe eine Frage, muss ich beim Rückenteil auf beiden Seiten in der Hinreihe abketten? Also auf den rechten Teil vom Rückenausschnitt in der Hinreihe oder in der Rückreihe abketten? Liebe Grüße Tamara

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 09:30:

Liebe Tamara, beim Halsauschnitt werden die Maschen am Anfang der Reihe vom Hals abgekettet, dh entweder in einer Hin- oder in einer Rückreihe je nach dem Teil Sie dann stricken. Diese Maschen sind für Hals und nicht für Schulter abgekettet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Pia 16.04.2018 - 16:50:

Salve, vorrei realizzare questo modello ma non riesco a capire la spiegazione delle strisce. Ad esempio: "blu denim + blu viola chiaro: 5-5-5-6-6-6 coste" significa che devo lavorare i 2 colori insieme, ok, ma cosa indicano i numeri? e "coste"? mi sembra che sia tutto legaccio. grazie

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 17:43:

Buonasera Pia. I numeri indicano quante coste a legaccio deve lavorare a seconda della taglia. P.es per la taglia S, con i 2 colori insieme (1 capo blu denim + 1 capo blu viola chiaro), lavora 5 coste a legaccio che corrispondono a 10 ferri a diritto. Analogamente per le altre taglie. Buon lavoro!

Gittegry 16.02.2018 - 21:53:

Er ved at strikke den største str. Har bestilt 50 g lys blålilla. Dette er ikke nok (jeg overholder strikkefasthed). Tænker andre skal bestille 2 ngl i samme indfarvning....måske til rettelse i opskriften!

Conny 24.01.2018 - 15:02:

Liebes Team, bei dieser Anleitung hat sich der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen. Die Einleitung gehört nicht zu dieser Anleitung!

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 15:51:

Liebe Conny, jetzt sieht die Anleitung korrekt aus, danke für den Hinweis. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Conny 24.01.2018 - 11:21:

Liebes Team, bitte überprüfen Sie Ihre Einleitung zu dieser Anleitung, da hat sich der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen. Liebe Grüße Conny
