Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies evenly spaced decrease):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 168 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 6) = 28. In this example work approx. every 27th and 28th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to armholes):
Decrease inside 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are done from the right side.
Decrease before 3 edge stitches as follows: Knit 2 together.
Decrease after 3 edge stitches as follows: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armhole, then work front and back piece back and forth separately. Neck edge is worked back and forth on needle.

BODY:
Cast on 168-180-204-228 (252-276) stitches on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Alpaca. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round and 1 marker after 84-90-102-114 (126-138) stitches, markers indicates side of garment. Then work A.1 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 14-15-17-19 (21-23) times in width). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8''. Then work A.2 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 14-15-17-19 (21-23) times in width). On rounds marked with arrow decrease stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1. For every time 12 stitches are decreased in total, work 1 repetition less of A.2 in width. When all decreases are done, there are 108-120-132-156 (156-180) stitches on needle (= 54-60-66-78 (78-90) stitches on each side of marker).

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! WORK PATTERN WHILE AT THE SAME TIME DECREASING FOR ARMHOLE THE SIDE AS FOLLOWS:
PATTERN:
Continue with pattern. When A.2 has been worked vertically, continue in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Piece measures approx. 27-27-33-33 (39-39) cm/10½"-10½"-13"-13" (15 1/4"-15 1/4").
ARMHOLE:
When piece measures 24-26-31-36 (41-44) cm, continue as follows: Work 9 stitches in garter stitch, work pattern/garter stitch as before, but decrease 4-4-4-8 (2-6) stitches evenly until 9 stitches remain before next marker, work 18 stitches in garter stitch, work pattern/garter stitch as before, but decrease 4-4-4-8 (2-6) stitches evenly until 9 stitches remain on round, finish with 9 stitches in garter stitch = 100-112-124-140 (152-168) stitches in total (= 50-56-62-70 (76-84) stitches on each side of markers). Continue like this until piece measures 25-27-32-37 (42-45) cm/9 3/4"-10½"-12½"-14½" (16½"-17 3/4"). Now bind off stitches for armhole as follows: bind off the first 6 stitches, work 3 stitches in garter stitch, work pattern until 9 stitches remain before next marker, work 3 stitches in garter stitch, bind off the next 12 stitches, work 3 stitches in garter stitch, work pattern as before until 9 stitches remain, work 3 stitches in garter stitch and bind off the last 6 stitches. Now finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
Now work back and forth.
= 38-44-50-58 (64-72) stitches. Continue with pattern and 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side of piece. Then decrease 1 stitch for armhole inside 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side of piece - read DECREASE TIP-2! Decrease like this on every other row 3-4-5-4 (4-5) times in total = 32-36-40-50 (56-62) stitches. When piece measures 32-34-40-46 (52-56) cm/12½"-13½"-15 3/4"-18" (20½"-22"), bind off the middle 16-18-22-24 (26-26) stitches for neck = 8-9-9-13 (15-18) stitches on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Continue in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch out towards armhole as before until piece measures 34-36-42-48 (54-58) cm/13½"-14 1/4"-16½"-19" (21 1/4"-22 3/4") in total. Bind off by purling from wrong side. This shoulder is sewn together with left shoulder on front piece later.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
Continue in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch out towards armhole as before until piece measures 34-36-42-48 (54-58) cm/13½"-14 1/4"-16½"-19" (21 1/4"-22 3/4") in total. Bind off by knitting from wrong side. On this shoulder sew on buttons later.

FRONT PIECE:
Work as on back piece until piece measures 30-32-37-42 (48-51) cm/11 3/4"-12½"-14½"-16½" (19"-20"). Now bind off the middle 10-12-16-16 (18-18) stitches for neck = 11-12-12-17 (19-22) stitches on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
bind off 1 stitch on every row from neck 3-3-3-4 (4-4) times in total = 8-9-9-13 (15-18) stitches. When piece measures 32-34-40-46 (52-56) cm/12½"-13½"-15 3/4"-18" (20½"-22"), work in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch out towards armhole. When piece measures 34-36-42-48 (54-58) cm/13½"-14 1/4"-16½"-19" (21 1/4"-22 3/4") decrease for 2 buttonholes from right side as follows: Knit 1-1-1-2 (3-3), knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over (= 1 buttonhole), knit 2-2-2-4 (5-8), knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over (= 1 buttonhole), finish with 1-2-2-3 (3-3) stitches in garter stitch. Bind off by knitting on next row from wrong side.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Continue in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch out towards armhole as before until piece measures 34-36-42-48 (54-58) cm/13½"-14 1/4"-16½"-19" (21 1/4"-22 3/4") in total. Bind off by purling from wrong side. This shoulder is sewn together with left shoulder on back piece later.

Vad betyder "stickas en rapport mindre av A.2 på bredden"? Hur ska jag göra?

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 07:52:

Hei Aa. Fordi det felles masker vil du tilslutt ikke kunne gjenta A.2 like mange ganger i bredden, så hver gang du har felt totalt 12 masker vil det bli strikket 1 rapport mindre av A.2. Bare gjenta A.2 på omgangen, og fell som anvist så går det opp slik det skal. God fornøyelse.

Anne Larsen 29.08.2018 - 21:13:

Flot kjole, men målet på kjolens bredde passer ikke. Tror det hænger sammen med at strikkefastheden i glatstrik er anderledes end strikkefastheden i strik i en blanding af ret/vrangog hulmønster

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 13:19:

Hej Anne, jo men strikkefastheden er den samme, hvis du har 24 m på 10 cm så får du samme mål som i måleskitsen nederst. God fornøjelse!

Anne Larsen 29.08.2018 - 21:06:

Flot kjole, men målet på kjolens bredde kommer ikke til passe. Kan det hænge sammen med at strikkefastheden i glatstrik er anderledes end strikkefastheden i strik i en blanding af ret/vrangog hulmønster

Lelletta 29.08.2018 - 17:12:

Buonasera! Vorrei sostituire il tipo di lana con uno che non abbia pelucchi, ma il vostro convertitore di filati non ha trovato nulla. Potete aiutarmi? Grazie mille!

DROPS Design 29.08.2018 kl. 17:38:

Buongiorno Lelletta. Può sostituire con la Baby Merino, molto consigliata per capi per bambini e senza pelucchi. Buon lavoro!

Ilse Richter 11.05.2018 - 11:01:

Vielen Dank für ihre schnelle Antwort! Herzlichen Dank auch für die kostenlosen sehr netten Strick Ideen!!! Ich stricke mit der original Wolle,bin gestern bis Halsausschnitt gekommen,Ärmelausschnitt kommt mir sehr groß vor! Nach der letzten Lochrunde,die ich versetzte,machte ich noch eine Lochrunde! Das Kleid sieht einfach super aus! Vielen Dank ilse

Ulrike 10.05.2018 - 16:02:

An dieser Stelle möchte ich mich bei DROPS für die Unzahl toller Strickanleitungen bedanken. Gerade im Babybereich habe ich schon sehr viel danach gestrickt und fand Ihre Anleitungen immer super!

Ulrike 10.05.2018 - 16:01:

Ich habe das Kleidchen grade mit Baby-Merino fertiggestellt und alle sind ganz begeistert. Angefangen habe ich zwar mit der Maschenzahl für ein Jahr und dann gemerkt, dass die Breite nur 43 cm beträgt. Also hielt ich mich nun an die Maße von 6/9 Monate. In der Länge gab ich dann einfach noch etwas Muster (Lochmuster wie ganz unten) dazu, damit ich genau mit den Armausschnitten Krausrippen weiterstricken konnte.

DROPS Design 11.05.2018 kl. 08:21:

Liebe Ulrike, Stimmte Ihre Maschenprobe? Mit 24 M = 10 cm sollte das Kleid ca 48 cm in der Breite sein (= 228 M x 10 / 24 = 47.5 cm). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

ILse Richter 10.05.2018 - 12:29:

LIebes Team! Die Beschreibung ab dem Armausschnitt ist sehr unverständlich,ich wäre jetzt so weit und kann nicht weiter.Bitte um genaue Beschreibung oder Zeichnung! Der letzte Mustersatz von A2 stimmt auch nicht. Ich hab jetzt 132 Maschen auf der Nadel,wie gehts weiter?Was heißt neben 3 Kraus r.M.,wird sowieso alles kraus r.gestrickt.Bitte um Erklärung! L.G.ilse

DROPS Design 11.05.2018 kl. 07:51:

Frau Richter, bei 132 Maschen können Sie 11 Mal das Muster A.2 in der Breite wiederholen. Nach 31 cm werden Sie kraus rechts auf die 18 M. auf beiden Seiten (Armausschnitt) stricken, gleichzeitig werden 4 M über die restlichen Maschen je am Vorder- und Rückenteil abgenommen: 132 M - 2 x 4 M = 124 M (= 62 für Vorder- und Rückenteil). Nach 32 cm werden die 9 mittleren Kraus rechts Maschen auf beiden Seiten abgekettet und jedes Teil wird dann Separat gestrickt (= mit 3 M kraus rechts auf beiden Seiten). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Christin 27.04.2018 - 12:30:

Ich stricke gerade das Kleid in68-74 es ist riesig. Mit korrekter wolle und Naadel statt 43cm Messe ich unten 50. Warum fällt alles immer so gross aus. Das ist echt ärgerlich, das Kleid soll im Winter passen

DROPS Design 27.04.2018 kl. 13:19:

Liebe Christin, stimmt Ihre Maschenprobe? Mit 204 M für 3. Größe sollen Sie 85 cm um herum, dh 42.5 cm (ca 43 cm) für die Hälfte, wie in der Maßskizze. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doreen 02.04.2018 - 19:14:

Liebes Drops Team, Beim Mustersatz 2 der Größe 68/74 stimmt der letzte Mustersatz vor den krausrippen nicht mit dem Mustersatz davor überein. Also 5 Rechte Maschen, 2Maschen zusammen ,1 Umschlag, 5 Rechte das verschiebt sich und sieht nicht schön aus. Ich denke das ist durch die Abnahmen. Ich hoffe sie verstehen was ich meine. Wie kann ich das abändern?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 09:46:

Liebe Doreen, wegen der Abnahmen wird die Anzahl von dem Rapporte in der Breite immer weniger sein, aber Diagramm wird immer in der Runde anpassen, Löchermuster werden aber nicht in der Höhe aneinandergereiht. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
