INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. A.2 shows how round begins/ends when working in the round.

CROCHET TIP – when working back and forth:
Work 3 chain stitches at the beginning of rows starting with double crochets (does not
replace first double crochet). Work 1 chain stitch at the beginning of rows starting with
single crochets (Does not replace first single crochet).

DECREASE TIP:
DOUBLE CROCHET:
Decrease 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets together as follows:
Work 1 double crochet in first stitch, but wait with last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), work 1 double crochet in next stitch/around the chain stitch, but on last pull through pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).
SINGLE CROCHET:
Decrease 1 single crochet by working 2 single crochets together as follows: Work 1 single crochet but wait with last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work next single crochet but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 single crochet decreased)

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches (e.g. 156 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 6) = 26. In this example crochet approx. every 25th and 26th stitch together.
--------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
There is a 10 cm / 4'' vent at the bottom of dress, first work piece back and forth until vent is done, then work piece in the round but turn on every round and work back on round to make the texture the same all the way. When piece is divided at the armhole, work back and forth again.

FRONT PIECE:
Work 90-97-104-111-125-139 chain stitches with Muskat on hook size 4 mm / G/6. Continue with 1 single crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook, then 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 78-84-90-96-108-120 single crochets (chain stitch to turn with is also counted as 1 single crochet). Turn and work 1 single crochet in every single crochet. Now work according to diagram A.1 - read CROCHET TIP! REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! After 10 cm / 4'' put piece aside and work the back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Work 90-97-104-111-125-139 chain stitches with Muskat on hook size 4 mm / G/6. Continue with 1 single crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook, then 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 78-84-90-96-108-120 single crochets (chain stitch to turn with is also counted as 1 single crochet). Turn and work 1 single crochet in every single crochet. Now work according to diagram A.1. Continue until piece measures 10 cm / 4'' - finish on the same row as on front piece.

DRESS after vent:
Continue pattern like this - first work stitches over front piece, then work stitch over back piece, then work round together with a slip stitch in 1st/3rd stitch on round, work stitch in A.2, turn piece and work back.
Insert 1 marker thread in transitions between front and back piece = sides.
Continue like this back and forth with pattern according to diagram A.1 and A.2. On rounds with double crochets or single crochets there are now 156-168-180-192-216-240 stitches on round (A.2 is not counted in number of stitches). When piece measures approx. 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm / 11¾''-12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾'' - adjust so that next round is a round with double crochets or single crochets (marked on diagram with star), decrease 6 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP and DECREASE TIP (evenly). Repeat decrease 6 times in total on the 6 marked rounds with double crochets or single crochets = 120-132-144-156-180-204 stitches on a round with double crochets or single crochets.

After last decrease round work pattern as before for approx. 3 cm / 1'' – adjust so that next round is a round marked with star (piece now measures approx. 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm / 19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21''). Now increase 6 stitches evenly on round by working 2 stitches in 1 stitch. Repeat increase 4 times in total vertically at the rounds marked in diagram = 144-156-168-180-204-228 stitches on a round with double crochets or single crochets after last increase. When piece measures approx. 60-61-62-63-64-65 cm / 23 5/8''-24''-24 3/8''-24¾''-25¼''-25½'' – adjust after a round marked with star, finish dress according to diagram A.3 (turn as before with diagram A.2). When piece measures 62-63-64-65-66-67 cm / 24½"-24 3/4"-25 1/4"-25½"-26"-26½'', divide the piece for front and back piece at the armholes.

FRONT PIECE:
Work slip stitches over the first 4-5-4-5-6-7 stitches, then work until 4-5-4-5-6-7 stitches remain before marker thread in the other side, turn piece. On next row work the 4 outermost stitches in each side together 2 by 2 – read DECREASE TIP! Repeat decrease on every row 0-0-1-1-2-3 more times. On next row work the 2 outermost stitches together, repeat decrease on every row 2-2-2-3-4-5 more times.
After all decreases are done, 54-58-62-64-68-72 stitches remain on row.
When piece measures 70-71-73-74-76-77 cm / 27½"-28"-28 3/4"-29"-30"-30½'', finish each shoulder separately.

SHOULDER:
Continue with double crochets over the first 17-19-21-22-23-24 stitches from the right side of piece, turn and work the first 4 stitches together 2 by 2 for neck, then work the rest of row. Turn and work until 4 stitches remain before neck, work these together 2 by 2, turn. On next row work the first 2 stitches together, then work the rest of row. Turn and work until 2 stitches remain, work these together. Turn, work the first 2 stitches together, work the rest of row = 10-12-14-15-16-17 stitches remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 80-82-84-86-88-90 cm / 31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8''-35½'', fasten off.
Work the other shoulder the same way, but in reverse. I.e. Start from the right side and working the decreases for neck at end of rows from WS.

BACK PIECE:
Work slip stitches over the first 4-5-4-5-6-7 stitches, then work until 4-5-4-5-6-7 stitches remain before marker thread in the side, turn piece. On next row work the 4 outermost stitches in each side together 2 by 2 – read DECREASE TIP! Repeat decrease on every row 0-0-1-1-2-3 more times. On next row work the 2 outermost stitches together, repeat decrease on every row 2-2-2-3-4-5 more times. After all decreases are done, 54-58-62-64-68-72 stitches remain on row. Continue to work until piece measures approx. 78-80-82-84-86-88 cm / 30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33''-33 7/8''-34 5/8''. Then finish each shoulder separately as follows: Work 1 row over the first 12-14-16-17-18-19 stitches, turn, work the first 2 stitches together, work the rest of row. Turn and work until 2 stitches remain, work these together. Turn, work the rest of row, fasten off. Repeat on the other shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

DECORATING EDGE:
Work a decorating edge around the neck, each armhole and at the bottom of body - as well as up and down each vent.
Work decorating edge as follows: 1 single crochet, * 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in 3rd chain stitch from hook, skip approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' and make 1 single crochet *. Repeat from *-* and finish with 1 slip stitch in first single crochet from beginning of round.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Correction: CROCHET TIP – when working back and forth: Work 3 chain stitches at the beginning of rows starting with double crochets (does not replace first double crochet). Work 1 chain stitch at the beginning of rows starting with single crochets (Does not replace first single crochet).

Hello I am interested in purchasing yarn. I know you probably have no way of knowing exactly when I will be receiving the yarn but I would need the yarn so I can make the Belladonna dress in time for Christmas. Will it take longer than a week? Thank you in advance.

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 15:34:

Dear Mrs Cabera, please contact individually each DROPS store shipping to the USA to get further informations about shipment delay. Happy crocheting!

Heather 03.10.2018 - 21:23:

What difficulty level is this pattern? Also, is the yarn supposed to sport weight, or worsted..?

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 10:04:

Dear Heather, we do not have any difficulty level to our patterns, since this vary from country to country. Just read thouroughly the pattern - you are welcome to ask your questions here or contact your DROPS store for any individual assistance. You'll read more about the yarn under its shadecard. Happy crocheting!

Sahar Said 25.08.2018 - 01:51:

Good day Just wanted to ask you about the rows no. 3-5-8-12 in A1. It says to increase evenly. How many stiches should be increased in each row? Thank you

DROPS Design 27.08.2018 kl. 19:01:

Hello Sahar. You increase 6 sts on each row. Happy crocheting!

Maria 13.08.2018 - 20:16:

Virkad både A1 och A3 upp till 60-65 cm?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 13:56:

Hej Maria, først A1 (och A2) sedan vid 60-65 cm virkas A3 :)

Paditz Natalie 12.08.2018 - 21:53:

Die Übersetzung für die Häkelschrift ist leider nicht vollständig

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 10:25:

Liebe Frau Paditz, Die Übersetzung für die Häkelschrift ist korrekt, sollten Sie eine Frage haben, dürfen Sie sie hier gerne stellen. Ihr DROPS Laden kann auch Ihnen entweder per Mail oder telefonisch weiterhelfen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Maria 08.08.2018 - 10:00:

Virkas A1 och A3 upp till 60-65 cm, och därefter enbart A3?

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 14:24:

Hej, när arb mäter 60-65 cm fortsätter du med A.3, men du ska även i fortsättningen vända arb med A.2 som förut.

Cathrine 20.07.2018 - 13:25:

Hva betyr tegnet med skråstrek i a2 ?

DROPS Design 26.07.2018 kl. 13:07:

Hei Cathrine. Hver skrå strek er 1 luftmaske. God fornøyelse

Thea 16.07.2018 - 19:08:

Ik heb een week geleden een vraag gesteld maar nog geen antwoord. Ik zou graag de jurk afmaken maar kan niet verder.

Pat 11.07.2018 - 22:16:

Bonjour, j’ai achete lacwualité Muskst. Sur les 3 pelotes de 50gr déjà utilisées, j’si eu deux grands noeuds!!!!! Ceci est tres visible sur mon travail et inaccetable. Je n’ai pas achete des prlotes 2nde choix!!!! Que faire????? Merci

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:35:

Bonjour Pat, Nous sommes désolés pour ce désagrément, mais si nous savons d’expérience que les nœuds sont désagréables quand on crochète, il peut malheureusement arriver qu’il y en ait, malgré tout le soin apporté à la fabrication de nos fils, le fil lui-même n’étant pas infini. Nous vous recommandons de le défaire et de joindre le fil tout comme pour une nouvelle pelote pour éviter les mauvaises surprises par la suite. N’hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS pour toute information complémentaire. Bon crochet!

Evelina 10.07.2018 - 21:39:

Hej! Jag förstår inte stycket "Klänningen efter sprundet" när jag ska virka ihop fram- och bakstyckenas sprund. Jag förstår att jag ska fortsätta med A1 - men förstår inte A2 och i vilket skede jag virkar luftmaskor för att fästa ihop de två varven?

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 kl. 13:35:

Hei Evelina. Du fortsetter å hekle A.1 over forstykket, og så videre over bakstykket. Så fester du bakstykket i forstykket med en kjedemaske – hvilken maske kjedemasken skal i avhenger av hvilken omgang av A.1 du er kommet til. Så hekles A.2, før du snur arbeidet og hekler neste omgang. God fornøyelse
