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.

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...

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS 186-12) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

Click here to see our yarn converter

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

I really need help. this section "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 double crochets in each repeat, but in 5-5-6-10-7-11 repeats evenly spaced on the round, increase this to 16 double crochets so that the total is 200-200-216-220-232-236 double crochets on the round" does really not make ANY sence. I don't understand what it means, please help

Dear Angiee, on the last round in A.1 you have to crochet 15 dc in each A.1 (see diagram) but on this round you have to increase evenly, this means that over some repeats of the round (= 5-5-6-10-7-11 repeats) you will crochet 16 dc instead of 15 dc - you will then incraese a total of 5-5-6-10-7-11 sts; there were 13-13-14-14-15-15 repeats with 11 sts each, you will have now 8-8-8-4-8-4 repeats with 15 sts each + 5-5-6-10-7-11 repeats with 16 sts each = 200-200-216-220-232-236 sts. Happy crocheting!

Good day, I am trying to figure out how many 50 g of Drops Safran I need for size L or XL. The pattern does not indicated it and I want to make sure I have enough to finish the dress.

DROPS Design 20.04.2020 kl. 19:48:

Dear Lorraine, for amount of yarn see header nearby main picture: Sizes: S - M - L - XL - XXL - XXXL Materials: DROPS SAFRAN from Garnstudio (belongs to yarn group A) 700-750-800-900-1000-1050 g colour 05, light blue purple Number of amount goes in the same order as letter for sizing, so for size L-XL you need 800-900 g of Safran. If you divide this amount 50 g, you will get number of balls (16-18). Happy crocheting!

Hallo liebes Team , ich weiß leider nicht wie folgendes gemeint ist : In der letzten Runde von A.1 zunächst 15 Stäbchen in jedem Rapport häkeln, aber in 5-5-6-10-7-11 Rapporten gleichmäßig verteilt in der Runde auf 16 Stäbchen zunehmen, sodass insgesamt 200-200-216-220-232-236 Stäbchen in der Runde sind. Dort komme ich nicht weiter

DROPS Design 02.01.2020 kl. 15:18:

Liebe Sarah, bei der letzten Reihe in A.1 hat man normaleweise 15 Stäbchen in jedem Rapport, aber wenn Sie dann diese Reihe häkeln, sollen Sie regelmäßig zunehmen, dh in 5-5-6-10-7-11 Rapporte häkeln Sie 16 Stäbchen (anstatt 15) und in den übrigen Rapporte häkeln Sie 15 Stäbchen wie im Diagram gezeigt. hier lesen Sie mehr wie man gleichmäßig verteilt zunimmt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Hva er konsekvensene av at man ikke har begynt omgangene i bærestykket med tre luftmasker og avsluttet med kjedemaske i 3.luftmaske? Kan dette eventuelt rettes opp uten å rekke opp alt? Hvordan gjøres det i så fall?

DROPS Design 28.10.2019 kl. 14:01:

Hei Liza. I denne oppskriften starter man med 3 luftmasker som erstatter 1 stav på omgangen, slik kommer du deg opp i "høyden". Om du har startet med en stav, kan du få en liten "bulk" når du skal avslutte omgangen med 1 kjedemasken i denne staven. Du vil også få en stav for liten når du skal telle over maskeantallet, siden de 3 luftmaskene erstatter en stav. mvh DROPS design

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!

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!
