INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP-1:
Increase 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets in same stitch.

CROCHET TIP-1 (applies to body but not diagram):
Replace first double crochet at beginning of every row with 3 chain stitches.

CROCHET TIP-2 (applies to body but not diagram):
When working in the round, replace first treble with 3 chain stitches, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease by working 2 double crochets together.


INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of double crochets on row (e.g. 146 double crochets) and divide double crochets by number of increases to be done (e.g. 22) = 6.6. In this example increase by working 2 double crochets in same double crochet alternately approx. every 6th and 7th double crochet.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Piece is worked back and forth, top down, work front and back piece separately down to armhole, then work in the round over both parts. Then work straps from bottom up and then work flounces back and forth on straps, fasten flounce to front/back piece.

FRONT PIECE:
Work 51-53-53-55-57-59 chain stitches (including 3 chain stitches to turn with) on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Cotton Merino. Switch to hook size 4 mm / G/6, turn and work 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 double crochets), work 1 double crochet in each of the next 47-49-49-51-53-55 chain stitches = 49-51-51-53-55-57 double crochets.
On next row begin increase in each side of piece AT THE SAME TIME work pattern as follows:
Increase 1 double crochet in each side of piece (= 2 double crochets increased) - read INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every row 3-5-8-13-14-15 times in total, and then every other row 5-5-3-0-0-0 times in total = 65-71-73-79-83-87 double crochets on last row.
Work next row as follows, begin from right side: Read CROCHET TIP-1 – work 1 double crochet in each of the first 0-1-1-2-3-4 double crochets, A.1a over the next 10 double crochets, repeat A.1b over the next 30 double crochets (= 5 times in total in width), A.1c over the next 9 double crochets and 1 double crochet in each of the last 0-1-1-2-3-4 double crochets. Continue until A.1 has been work 1 time vertically. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Then work as follows, begin from wrong side: Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet until 1 double crochet remains before first chain space, work A.2c, repeat A.2b 3 times in total in width, A.2a and 1 double crochet in every double crochet the entire row. Continue until A.2 has been worked vertically.
Then work as follows, begin from wrong side: Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet until first chain space, work A.3 and 1 double crochet in every double crochet the rest of row. Continue until A.3 has been worked vertically. Now work 1 double crochet in every stitch until piece measures 14-15-15-16-16-17 cm / 5 ½"-5 7/8"-5 7/8"-6 ¼"-6 ¼"-6 5/8". Fasten off, turn. Put piece aside.

BACK PIECE:
Work 51-53-53-55-57-59 chain stitches (including 3 chain stitches to turn with) on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Cotton Merino. Switch to hook size 4 mm / G/6, turn and work 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 double crochets), work 1 double crochet in each of the next 47-49-49-51-53-55 chain stitches = 49-51-51-53-55-57 double crochets.
Then work 1 double crochet in every double crochet - AT THE SAME TIME increase 1 double crochet in each side of piece - remember INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every row 8-10-11-13-14-15 times in total = 65-71-73-79-83-87 double crochets on last row. When piece measures 14-15-15-16-16-17 cm / 5 ½"-5 7/8"-5 7/8"-6 ¼"-6 ¼"-6 5/8" (adjust according to front piece), fasten off, turn.

BODY:
Now work the two parts together as follows:
Work 4-4-7-8-12-15 chain stitches for armhole, 1 double crochet in each of the 65-71-73-79-83-87 double crochets from back piece, work 8-8-14-16-24-30 chain stitches for armhole, 1 double crochet in each of the 65-71-73-79-83-87 double crochets from front piece, work 4-4-7-8-12-15 chain stitches for armhole and finish with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch at beginning of round. Then work piece in the round, continue with 1 double in every double/chain stitch = 146-158-174-190-214-234 double crochets. When working in the round, turn after every round to work alternately from right side and wrong side. This is so that the texture is the same on the entire top - read CROCHET TIP-2. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-14-16-24-30 chain stitches. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue like this until piece measures 8-9-10-11-12-13 cm / 3 1/8''-3½''-4''-4 3/8''-4¾''-5 1/8''.
Now work in the round according to diagram A.4 while at the same time increasing on first round (round marked with arrow in diagram) as follows: Work A.4b 28-30-33-36-39-43 times in total on round – A.4a shows how rounds begin and end and is worked in addition to A.4b – AT THE SAME TIME increase 11-11-12-13-10-12 chain spaces (= 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch) evenly – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 84-90-99-108-117-129 chain spaces (= 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch). Continue in the round, i.e. always work pattern from right side. When A.4 is done vertically, fasten off.

STRAPS:
Now work a strap back and forth in cast-on edge on front piece over the first 8-9-9-9-10-10 double crochets. Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet until strap measures 10-10-11-11-12-12 cm / 4''-4''-4 3/8''-4 3/8''-4¾''-4¾''. Fasten off. Work 1 strap over the first 8-9-9-9-10-10 double crochets in the other side the same way. Work straps the same way on back piece. Sew tog straps on shoulder.

FLOUNCE:
Work back and forth over every row on strap (= 20-20-22-22-24-24 cm / 7 7/8"-7 7/8"-8 5/8"-8 5/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8"). Begin from wrong side and work 1 double crochet in first row, * 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet around row *, work from *-* along the entire strap – adjust so that there are 26-26-28-28-30-30 chain spaces (= 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet) on this row, finish with 1 double crochet in last row = 1 double crochet in each side and 26-26-28-28-30-30 chain spaces (= 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet). Turn and work as follows from right side: A.5a, A.5b 13-13-14-14-15-15 times in total in width, finish with A.5c. Continue this pattern until A.5 is done vertically, fasten off. Work flounce on the other strap the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Work 1 single crochet in every double crochet/2 single crochets along every double crochet row along the entire neck.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Work 1 single crochet in every double crochet/2 single crochets along every double crochet row along armhole – start right after flounce, work along armhole and to the flounce. Place flounce edge to edge to this sleeve edge (on both front and back piece) and fasten with small, neat stitches. Work the other sleeve edge the same way and fasten flounce.

TIE:
Cut 3 lengths of 3 metres each with Cotton Merino. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold them double so that they twine again. Make a knot at each end. Baste the yarn up and down through first row with eyelet holes - start mid front. Tie a bow at the front.

Este patrón ni concuerda con la imagen, es imposible hacerlo.

Debora 13.05.2019 - 17:22:

Buonasera, sempre Debora...... Ora devo lavorare il diagramma A.4 . Come si eseguono gli aumenti lavorando il diagramma? Devo lavorare 2 (maglia alta + catenella ) nella stessa maglia di base? Così facendo ci creano però degli archi nei quadrati della riga....sbaglio?

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 08:29:

Buongiorno Debora. Per aumentare deve lavorare, a intervalli regolari, 1 m.alta e 1 cat in più. Può provare a lavorare questa maglia alta aggiuntiva nella maglia del giro precedente che andrebbe saltata. In questa riga traforata andrà poi infilato il cordino, quindi eventuali irregolarità dovrebbero essere meno visibili. Buon lavoro!

Debora 09.05.2019 - 09:18:

Grazie!! Siete sempre cortesi e tempestivi. Credo che vi dovrò interpellare spesso....Grazie di nuovo

Debora 09.05.2019 - 08:19:

Buongiorno, sono di nuovo Debora. Grazie per la risposta precedente, ma continuo ad avere difficoltà....Come faccio a seguire lo schema se il numero delle maglie aumenta ad ogni riga visto che ai due lati man mano devo aggiungere maglie? Mi potreste spiegare più precisamente come fare gli aumenti lavorando lo schema? Chiedo perdono, ma sono agli inizi.....Grazie

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 08:59:

Buongiorno Debora. Aumenta 1 maglia alta all'inizio e alla fine della riga. Le maglie aumentate vengono poi lavorate come maglie alte. Quindi aumenta il numero di maglie alte lavorate prima e dopo i diagrammi. I diagrammi continua a lavorarli sulle stesse maglie. Ci riscriva se non è chiaro. Buon lavoro!

Diana 08.05.2019 - 23:51:

Buona sera...mi piace tanto questo modello..ma non riesco a leggere diagramma...c\'è un video tutorial per capire meglio.. grazie mille per la sua risposta

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 11:20:

Buongiorno Diana. In questa pagina può trovare alcune indicazioni utili su come leggere i diagrammi per i lavori all’uncinetto. Qui invece, trova alcuni video che possono aiutarla. Buon lavoro!

Debora 08.05.2019 - 07:26:

Buongiorno, ho appena iniziato a lavorare il davanti ed ho realizzato le prime 14 righe di maglia alte ottenendo 65 maglie. Ora devo iniziare con A.1a,A.1b, A, 1c che però va lavorato su 40 maglie (10+30+9+1). Potreste spiegarmi meglio come procedere? Sto lavorando una S. Grazie!

DROPS Design 08.05.2019 kl. 08:45:

Buongiorno Debora. Deve iniziare a lavorare i diagrammi quando ha 49 maglie; quindi gli aumenti vengono fatti mentre lavora i diagrammi. Buon lavoro!

Patricia 06.05.2019 - 12:32:

Super, merci pour vos réponses, maintenant j ai compris . Bonne journée.

Patricia 05.05.2019 - 11:18:

Dommage que les explication soit pas claire pour quel modele que ce soit

Patricia 05.05.2019 - 11:17:

Je ne comprends rien:\r\nCrocheter maintenant en rond, en suivant le diagramme A.4 en augmentant en même temps au premier tour (celui avec une flèche) ainsi: 28-30-33-36-39-43 fois A.4b au total au tour – A.4a montre comment commencer et terminer les tours et se fait en plus de A.4b – en augmentant EN MÊME TEMPS 11-11-12-13-10-12 arceaux (= 1 bride + 1 maille en l\'air) à intervalles réguliers = 84-90-99-108-117-129 arceaux (= 1 bride + 1 maille en l\'air).

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 09:56:

Bonjour Patricia, vous crochetez maintenant A.4 (= bas du dos et devant) ainsi: A.4a (= pour commencer les tours), répétez 28-43 fois A.4b en largeur (cf taille), en même temps, augmentez 11-13 arceaux (= 11 fois 1 bride, 1 ml) pour qu'il y ait un total de 84-129 arceaux à la fin du 1er rang. Continuez ensuite le motif comme indiqué dans le diagramme. Bon crochet!
