INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

CROCHET INFO:
On beginning of each round with treble crochets replace first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the round (e.g. 114 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 29) = 3.9.
In this example, increase in approx. every 4th stitch – read INCREASE TIP.
When decreasing, crochet every 3rd and 4th stitch together – read DECREASE TIP.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets in the same stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 treble crochet by working the next 2 treble crochets together as follows: Work 1 treble crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), work the next treble crochet, but when working the last pull through, pull the strand through all 3 loops on the hook.

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

DRESS:
The piece is worked in the round, top down.

NECK:
Work 114-118-124-128-132-136 slightly loose chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Safran and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
ROUND 1: Work 2 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 half treble crochet), then work 1 half treble crochet in each chain stitch to end of round, finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 2nd chain stitch at the beginning of the round = 114-118-124-128-132-136 half treble crochets.
ROUND 2: Work 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 half treble crochet + 1 chain stitch), skip 1 half treble crochet, * work 1 half treble crochet in the next half treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 half treble crochet *, work from *-* to end of round and finish with 1 slip stitch in the 2nd chain at the beginning of the round = 114-118-124-128-132-136 stitches on round.
ROUND 3: Work 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 treble crochet), then work 1 treble crochet in each half treble crochet and 1 treble crochet around each chain stitch – AT THE SAME TIME increase 29-25-30-26-33-29 treble crochets evenly on round – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP and INCREASE TIP = 143-143-154-154-165-165 treble crochets. Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
Read CROCHET INFO and work A.1 in the round (= 13-13-14-14-15-15 repeats of 11 stitches). On the last round in A.1 you will, for the most part, work 15 treble crochets in each repeat, but in 5-5-6-10-7-11 repeats evenly spaced on the round, increase this to 16 treble crochets so that the total is 200-200-216-220-232-236 treble crochets on the round. The piece now measures approx. 7 cm from the cast-on edge. Now work yoke as described below. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

YOKE:
Work 1 round of treble crochets with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet. Then insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches): Count 34-34-38-39-42-43 treble crochets (= ½ back piece), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 30 treble crochets (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 68-68-76-78-84-86 treble crochets (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 30 treble crochets (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet. There are 34-34-38-39-42-43 treble crochets left on the round after the last treble crochet with marker thread.
Continue working treble crochets in the round with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet - AT THE SAME TIME increase to raglan at each marker thread as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet with a marker thread (= 4 treble crochets increased on the round) = 204-204-220-224-236-240 treble crochets on the round.
ROUND 2: Around each chain-space with 2 chain stitches work 1 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 1 treble crochet (= 8 treble crochets increased on round) = 212-212-228-232-244-248 treble crochets on round.
Repeat round 2 until you have worked a total of 9-13-15-18-20-23 rounds with increases (including the increases in round 1) = 268-300-332-360-388-416 treble crochets on the round.
On the next round work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet, but around each chain-space with 2 chain stitches work 2 treble crochets (= 8 treble crochets increased on the round) = 276-308-340-368-396-424 treble crochets on the round.
Continue to work treble crochets without increases until the piece measures 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 40-44-48-53-59-65 treble crochets (including the 3 chain stitches at beginning of round = ½ back piece), work 8-8-10-10-12-14 slightly loose chain stitches, skip 58-66-74-78-80-82 treble crochets (= sleeve), work 80-88-96-106-118-130 treble crochets (= front piece), work 8-8-10-10-12-14 slightly loose chain stitches, skip 58-66-74-78-80-82 treble crochets (= sleeve) and work the last 40-44-48-53-59-65 treble crochets on the round (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand.
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 chain stitches under the sleeve on the one side of the piece and start the round here.
Work 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch, 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 treble crochet), then work 1 treble crochet in each chain stitch and 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet to end of round = 176-192-212-232-260-288 treble crochets. Continue in the round with treble crochets. When the piece measures 2 cm from the separation, decrease 8-8-8-10-10-10 treble crochets evenly on round = 168-184-204-222-250-278 treble crochets – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP. Repeat the decrease when the piece measures 6 cm from the separation = 160-176-196-212-240-268 treble crochets.
When the piece measures 12 cm from the separation, increase 12-12-12-14-14-14 treble crochets evenly on round = 172-188-208-226-254-282 treble crochets.
When the piece measures 18 cm from the separation, increase 12-12-12-14-14-14 treble crochets evenly on round = 184-200-220-240-268-296 treble crochets.
When the piece measures 26 cm from the separation, increase 14 treble crochets evenly on round in all sizes = 198-214-234-254-282-310 treble crochets.
When the piece measures 34 cm from the separation, increase 14 treble crochets evenly on round in all sizes = 212-228-248-268-296-324 treble crochets.
When the piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm from the separation, (the piece now measures approx. 62-65-68-71-74-77 cm from the shoulder) increase 40-48-40-44-40-48 treble crochets evenly on round = 252-276-288-312-336-372 treble crochets.
Work A.2 in the round (= 21-23-24-26-28-31 repeats of 12 stitches). AT THE SAME TIME on the last round in A.2 increase 52-60-64-72-64-60 treble crochets evenly on round = 304-336-352-384-400-432 treble crochets.
Work A.3 in the round (= 19-21-22-24-25-27 repeats of 16 stitches).
When A.3 has been completed, there are 475-525-550-600-625-675 treble crochets on the round. Now work A.X as shown in A.2 (= 2 rounds). AT THE SAME TIME on the last round increase 30-28-39-25-36-34 treble crochets evenly on round = 505-553-589-625-661-709 treble crochets.
The next round is worked as follows: A.4A (= 6 stitches), work A.4B over the next 492-540-576-612-648-696 treble crochets (= 41-45-48-51-54-58 repeats of 12 stitches), finish with A.4C (= 7 stitches). When A.4 has been completed, cut and fasten the strand. The dress measures approx. 92-95-98-101-104-107 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 chain stitches under the sleeve on the one side of the piece and start the round here.
Work 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch, 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 treble crochet), then work 1 treble crochet in each chain stitch and 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet to end of round = 66-74-84-88-92-96 treble crochets. Work 1 round of treble crochets where you decrease 6-2-12-4-8-0 treble crochets evenly on round = 60-72-72-84-84-96 treble crochets. Work A.5 in the round (= 5-6-6-7-7-8 repeats of 12 stitches). When there are 3 rounds left in A.5 change to hook size 3 mm. Finish working A.5, cut and fasten the strand. The sleeve measures approx. 8 cm from the separation.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Updated online: 27.04.2018
Correction: NECK:... Read CROCHET INFO and work A.1 in the round (= 13-13-14-14-15-15 repeats of 11 stitches). On the last round in A.1 you will, for the most part, work 15 treble crochets in each repeat, but in 5-5-6-10-7-11 repeats evenly spaced on the round, increase this to 16 treble crochets so that the total is 200-200-216-220-232-236 treble crochets on the round. The piece now measures approx. 7 cm from the cast-on edge. Now work yoke as described below. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

YOKE:
Work 1 round of treble crochets with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet. Then insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches): Count 34-34-38-39-42-43 treble crochets (= ½ back piece), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 30 treble crochets (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 68-68-76-78-84-86 treble crochets (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet, count 30 treble crochets (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the next treble crochet. There are 34-34-38-39-42-43 treble crochets left on the round after the last treble crochet with marker thread.
Continue working treble crochets in the round with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet - AT THE SAME TIME increase to raglan at each marker thread as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 treble crochet + 2 chain stitches + 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet with a marker thread (= 4 treble crochets increased on the round) = 204-204-220-224-236-240 treble crochets on the round...

Anjana 16.06.2019 - 17:49:

Hello!! Could you please tell me what is meant by "Cast-on edge mid front"??

DROPS Design 16.06.2019 kl. 18:26:

Dear Anjana, this means that you measure your piece from the very first row = cast-on edge and in the middle of front piece, because it is the lower point of neck (back piece has higher neck, so the measurement will be different). Happy crocheting!

SONIA MORALES 18.05.2019 - 01:02:

Could you please explain or write for me Diagram A.4A, A.4B and A.4C Rows: 7 and 8 only. I am having real hard time to understand or follow the diagram. I have put it away for awhile thinking I could try it later but am stuck here. The dress for Mom is almost done. Please help, my doubt are were it says do single crochet in the stitch, which stitch? the double crochet from previous row? or on the 4 double crochet together from previous row? Thank you.

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 14:20:

Dear Mrs Morales, the "sc in stitch" should be worked at the top of the 4 double crochet worked together on previous row - on row 7. Happy crocheting!

Kathleen Kuppinger 01.04.2019 - 19:09:

How do you down patterns for printing?

DROPS Design 02.04.2019 kl. 09:36:

Dear Mrs Kuppinger, click on the icon with the printer/pattern, a new window will open, in that new window click on "Continue to print the pattern" to launch printing. Happy crocheting!

Magdalena 04.03.2019 - 19:35:

Dzień dobry Mam kolejne pytanie, ile cm wynosi motyw ozdoby w wykończeniu sukienki?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 08:44:

Witaj Magdaleno. Ozdobny motyw na dole sukienki ma długość 30 cm w każdym rozmiarze. Pozdrawiamy!

Magdalena 03.03.2019 - 10:09:

Jestem niska mam 153 cm wzrostu i potrzebuje krótszej sokienki kiedy mam zacząć robić zakończenie z ozdonego motywu?

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 17:31:

Witaj Magdaleno, modelka na zdjęciu ma ok. 170 cm wzrostu i nosi rozmiar S lub M. Jeżeli chcesz mieć sukienkę przed kolano, jak na zdjęciu, to ozdobny motyw musisz zacząć troszkę wcześniej, a o ile to zależy od twoich proporcji. Pamiętaj, aby dopasować liczbę słupków w okrążeniu przed rozpoczęciem ażurowego brzegu, aby motywy zmieściły się na szerokość. Powodzenia!

Elina 28.02.2019 - 11:53:

Hello! I have one more question. I started a yoke and in Round 1 (S-size) I have to crochet 1 double crochet + 2 chain stitches + 1 double crochet in each double crochet with a marker thread. And 204 double crochets on the round. But why 204??? I have 208 (200 basic + 2dc in 4 markers = 200+8=208).

DROPS Design 28.02.2019 kl. 13:46:

Dear Elina, there are 200 dc and you will crochet 1 dc,2 ch, 1 dc in 4 of these 200 dc = you will increase only 4 sts = 1 dc in each of the dc with a marker = there are now 204 dc. Happy crocheting!

Elina 25.02.2019 - 18:40:

Hello! I would know how to crochet neck's Round 3 for S-size. I just dont understand how I should "at the same time increase 29 double crochets evenly on round". So how many double crochets make between these increases?

DROPS Design 26.02.2019 kl. 10:33:

Dear Elina, on round 3 in size S you are working over the 114 sts from round 2, you will now crochet 1 dc in each dc and around each chain from round 2 increasing evenly 29 dc to get a total of 143 dc at the end of round 3. this lesson explains how to increase evenly , as the INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced) at the beginning of the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Priya 14.02.2019 - 07:13:

Hello, after the third row of the neck i am stuck. how many rows more to make before starting the york. thanks for your help.

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 07:51:

Hi Priya, After round 3 you work A.1, which is made up of 8 rounds. When you have finished A.1, you start the yoke. Happy crocheting!

Riet 09.02.2019 - 17:00:

Dat dacht ik al. Ik heb het nl uitgehaald en op die manier geprobeerd met een proeflapje. Bedankt voor de tip. Ik kan dit nergens in het patroon vinden; misschien handig om dit te vermelden.

Riet H. 04.02.2019 - 11:26:

Hoe komt het dat bij de stokjes in de rondte het werkje helemaal scheeftrekt? Voor de aanhechting aan het eind van de toer is dat zichtbaar en heel lelijk. Wat is de oplossing?

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 17:45:

Dag Riet,

Aan het eind van de toer sluit je de toer (met 1 halve vaste in de 3e losse van het begin van de toer) en dan keer je het werk en haak je weer terug. Je haakt dus niet steeds door in de rondte, maar je keert steeds het werk. Op deze manier gaan de stokjes niet scheef staan.
