NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

SEED STITCH:
Round 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* to end of round.
Round 2: Purl over knit and knit over purl.
Repeat round 2.

INCREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 121 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 15) = 8.1.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 8th stitch; on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.3).

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for the body):
Start 4 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (for body):
Increase 1 stitch by picking up the stitch from the previous round and knitting the new stitch. When you increase after the first and third marker threads, pick up 1 stitch in the first stitch loop after the marker thread. When increasing before the second and fourth marker threads, pick up a stitch in the last loop before the marker thread.
----------------------------------------------------------

DRESS:
The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeve edges are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 121-125-129-135-145-149 stitches with small circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Muskat. Knit 1 round. Then work SEED STITCH – see description above, for 2 cm / 3/4''. Knit 1 round where you increase 15-19-23-17-15-19 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 136-144-152-152-160-168 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and knit 1 round. Then work the yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Work A.1 in the round (= 17-18-19-19-20-21 repeats of 8 stitches). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When A.1 has been completed, there are 204-216-228-228-240-252 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 10-10-10-11-11-11 cm / 3 7/8"-3 7/8"-3 7/8"-4 ¼"-4 ¼"-4 ¼" from the cast on edge.
Now insert 4 markers in the piece for raglan as follows (do this without working the stitches): The first marker is inserted after the first 31-32-34-36-39-43 stitches (= ½ back piece), 2nd marker after the next 40-44-46-42-42-40 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker after the next 62-64-68-72-78-86 stitches (= front piece) and the 4th marker is inserted after the next 40-44-46-42-42-40 stitches (= sleeve). There are 31-32-34-36-39-43 stitches after the last marker for half the back piece.
Work stockinette stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase to RAGLAN – see description above (= 8 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 0-3-5-11-11-12 times and then every 4th round a total of 6-6-6-4-5-6 times. After the last increase to raglan there are 252-288-316-348-368-396 stitches on the needle. Knit 1 round where you increase 4-4-0-0-4-0 stitches evenly on round = 256-292-316-348-372-396 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm / 7 3/8"-8 ¼"-9"-9 ¾"-10 5/8"-11 3/8" from the cast on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches stockinette stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 52-62-68-72-74-76 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under the sleeve), work 76-84-90-102-112-122 stitches stockinette stitch (= front piece), place the next 52-62-68-72-74-76 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (=in side under the sleeve) and work the remaining 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches in stockinette stitch (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 168-184-200-224-248-272 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after 84-92-100-112-124-136 stitches (= in the sides of the dress). Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from the separation, decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2 cm / 3/4'' a total of 4 times in each side = 152-168-184-208-232-256 stitches. Remove all markers and marker threads in the piece, except the marker thread at the beginning of piece.
When the piece measures 15 cm / 6'' from the separation, insert 4 new marker threads in the piece as follows: The first marker thread is inserted after the first 15-18-21-26-31-36 stitches, 2nd marker thread after the next 46-48-50-52-54-56 stitches, 3rd marker thread after the next 30-36-42-52-62-72 stitches and the 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 46-48-50-52-54-56 stitches. There are 15-18-21-26-31-36 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread.
On the next round, increase after the first and third marker threads and before the second and fourth marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 4-5-3½-3½-3½-3½ cm/1½"-2"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4" a total of 7-6-8-8-8-8 times = 180-192-216-240-264-288 stitches.
When the piece measures 44-45-46-45-46-46 cm / 17 ¼"-17 5/8"-18"-17 5/8"-18"-18" work A.2 in the round (= 15-16-18-20-22-24 repeats of 12 stitches).
On each round with arrow in A.2 the beginning of the round is displaced 2 stitches towards the left, i.e. lift the 2 first stitches over to the right needle without working them, then work A.2 in the round. The 2 stitches that where lifted over to the right needle will be worked in the last repeat of A.2. On next round knit all stitches. Then start the round as normal. When A.2 is worked there is 240-256-288-320-352-384 stitches on the needle. Now work A.3 in the round (= 15-16-18-20-22-24 repeats of 16 stitches). When A.3 has been completed, there are 315-336-378-380-418-456 stitches on the needle. Knit 1 round where you increase 14-15-17-19-21-23 stitches evenly on round = 329-351-395-399-439-479 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work seed stitch in the round for 2 cm / 3/4''. Bind off with knit over purl and purl over knit. The dress measures approx. 87-90-93-96-99-101 cm / 34 ¼"-35 3/8"-36 5/8"-37 ¾"-39"-39 ¾" from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Place the 52-62-68-72-74-76 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 60-70-78-82-86-90 stitches. Knit 1 round and at the same time decrease 1 stitch on this round = 59-69-77-81-85-89 stitches. Work seed stitch in the round for 3 cm / 1''. Bind off with knit over purl and purl over knit. Work the other sleeve edge in the same way.

Cd.: Mogło się to wziąć z dosłownego tłumaczenia z angielskiego (cast on edge), ale to tak naprawdę znaczy górny brzeg robótki.

Agnieszka 06.08.2018 - 22:54:

W opisie KARCZKU jest napisane:Dalej przerabiać aż dł. robótki od rzędu nabierania oczek wynosi 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm, mierząc po środku przodu. To mylące, bo chodzi o 19cm od początku robótki. Sformułowanie ,od rzędu nabierania oczek, po polsku może sugerować, że należy mierzyć od ostatniego rzędu, w którym zostały dodane równomiernie 4-4-0-0-4-0 oczka.

Nadine 13.07.2018 - 03:52:

Beim Rumpfteil, wo man die Markierer anbringen soll, verstehe ich die Aufteilung nicht ganz. Da steht, es sollen die Seiten markiert werden. Heisst das, ich bringe die Markierer unter den Armausschnitten an? Weil mein Rundenbeginn wäre eigentlich am Rücken, so würde ich die Rückenmitte und die Vorderseitenmitte markieren und dort die Abnahme stricken. Aber die Abnahme müsste an den Seiten geschehen, oder?

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 kl. 07:23:

Liebe Nadine, Beim Rumpfteil beginnen jetzt du Runden unter dem Armauschnitt (an einer der Seite)= 1. Markierung, 2. Markierung wird nach der Hälften der Maschen eingesetzt, die Markierungen sind jeweils in der Mitter der neu angeschlagenen Maschen unter den Ärmeln. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Kirsten Pedersen 10.07.2018 - 04:11:

Et smukt mønster som virkelig kræver klarsyn for at hulmønster lykkedes. Er dog en perfekt kjole til vores smukke sommer også i forhold til navnet på mønster, hvis bare man havde startet lidt tidligere :-)

Anette 19.05.2018 - 02:04:

Hei. Jeg får ikke frem diagrammene til denne kjolen. Kan dere være snille å se om dere får rettet det snart?

DROPS Design 21.05.2018 kl. 09:59:

Hej Anette, diagrammerne og måleskitsen ligger nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Perlmuster geht bei 125 Maschen nicht auf Bitte um Korrektur

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 15:24:

Liebe Frau Wernet, dieses Video zeigt, wie man Perlmuster über eine ungerade Maschenanzahl strickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Eva Lauridsen 21.04.2018 - 11:59:

Jeg mener der er regnefejl i denne opskrift. \r\nJeg kan ikke få 152 + 38 til at give 228, som der står under bærestykke. Jeg strikker efter str. XL. \r\nHvad kan fejlen skyldes?

Małgorzata 17.04.2018 - 19:50:

Dlaczego nie mogę dodać wzoru sukienki do "ulubionych? pozdrawiam

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 20:14:

Witaj Małgosiu! System ulubionych dodaje stronę ze wzorem jako zakładkę w przeglądarce (zależnie od przeglądarki jest to np. symbol serduszka, zakładki w prawym górnym rogu na stronie). W Mozilli jest to np. symbol zakładki w prawym górnym rogu na stronie. Pozdrawiam

Beti 22.12.2017 - 19:46:

Eine traumhaftes Modell. Ich würde es gern nacharbeiten.

Conny 18.12.2017 - 12:49:

Ein Kleid wie ein Stern, super schön
