START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

DRESS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, top down. You first work a belt with lining and pattern, then the skirt is worked downwards. You work a lining at bottom of skirt with pattern. The braces are worked back and forth (sideways) and sewn on to finish.

LINING (for belt):
Cast on 108-120 (132-144-156) stitches with circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 and red. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 10 cm = 4”, work the next round as follows: * Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* to end of round (= folding edge). The yarn overs are not worked twisted on the next round - there will be holes. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!

BELT:
Then work A.1 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 9-10 (11-12-13) times in width). When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, the belt measures approx. 11 cm = 4 3/8” and the piece a total of 22 cm = 7 3/4” (including lining).

SKIRT:
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Work with red as follows: * knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* to end of round = 216-240 (264-288-312) stitches. The yarn overs are not worked twisted on the next round - there will be holes.
Work A.2 (= 8 stitches) over all stitches (= 27-30 (33-36-39) times in width).
When the skirt measures 14-17 (20-23-27) cm = 5 1/2”-6 3/4” (8”-9”-10 5/8”) and the piece a total of 36-39 (42-45-49) cm = 14 1/4”-15 1/4” (16 1/2”-17 3/4”-19 1/4”) (including lining) - there is now approx. 8 cm = 3 1/8” left to finished length (you can continue to desired length) - work A.3 over all stitches (= 18-20 (22-24-26) times in width). When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, the skirt measures approx. 22-25 (28-31-35) cm = 7 3/4”-9 3/4” (11”-12 1/4”-13 3/4”) and the piece a total of 44-47 (50-53-57) cm = 17 1/4”-18 1/2” (19 3/4”-21-22 1/2”) (including lining).

LINING (bottom edge):
Work with off white as follows: * knit 2 together, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* to end of round (= folding edge). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! The yarn overs are not worked twisted on next round, there will be holes. Work A.4 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 18-20 (22-24-26) times in width). When A.4 has been worked 1 time in height, continue working in red. Work until the lining measures 8 cm = 3 1/8” from the folding edge, and then bind off. The piece measures a total of approx. 52-55 (58-61-65) cm = 20 1/2”-21 5/8” (22 3/4”-24”-25 1/2”) (including both linings).

ASSEMBLY:
Fold lining at the top of the dress down on the wrong side of the belt and sew down with red. Do the same at the bottom of the skirt.

BRACES:
The braces measure approx. 27-28 (30-32-35) cm = 10 5/8”-11” (11 3/4”-12 1/2”-13 3/4”) in length when finished; there is 5 cm = 2” extra in each side so that the braces can be adjusted as the child grows. You can cast on more/fewer stitches if you would like longer/shorter braces (the number of stitches must be divisible by 4 + 2).
Cast on 66-70 (74-78-86) stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 and red. The braces are worked back and forth in stockinette stitch. Work 6 rows stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, in each side of the piece.
On the next row from the right side work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2 together, 1 yarn over * , work from *-* until there is 1 stitch left and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch (= folding edge). Then work A.5 (= 4 stitches) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side (edge stitches are worked in same color as the first/last stitch in A.5, first row worked from the wrong side – do not work the yarn overs twisted). When A.5 has been worked 1 time in height, work a folding edge in red from the right side as follows: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2 together, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* until there is 1 stitch left and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Work approx. 7 rows with red (do not work the yarn overs twisted), fold the lining down and make sure that it does not tighten the brace; work more rows if necessary. Bind off. Sew cast-on edge to cast-off edge in outermost loop of outermost stitch. Work 1 more brace.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the braces onto lining at top (i.e. on wrong side of belt) with neat stitches approx. 5 cm = 2” down on each side, with approx. 8-8 (9-10-10) cm = 3 1/8” – 3 1/8” (3 1/2”-4”-4”) between each brace mid front and mid back.

I have just finished making this for my one-year old grand-daughter and am thrilled with the result. As your yarn is hard to find in my part of Australia, I substituted Bendigo Woollen Mills 5 ply merino, which has worked perfectly. My daughter did not want the hat for her daughter so I have made a variation on the headband from the Visby Tunic pattern. Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns and the interesting videis.

What is the longer needle for?

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 15:31:

Dear Mrs Stock, the longer needle (80 cm) is used for the bottom of the dress (skirt part) to have enough room for all stitches. Happy knitting!

Signe 22.01.2019 - 17:48:

Oppskriften på selene er litt vanskelig å forstå.. RILLE er forklart med at man skal strikke en pinne frem og tilbake - 1 RILLE = strikk 2 pinner rett. Dvs at vi fra fremsiden får en pinne med vrangt og en med rett.. etter 6 pinner rett skal man strikke «1 kantmaske RILLE i hver side av arbeidet. Så skal man strikke 1 kantmaske rille, 2 rett sammen, 1 kast osv, for å få hullkant. Blir det to rette og to vrange omganger (annenhver gang) etter hverandre før vi strikker hullkant eller?

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 14:28:

Hei Signe. Du strikker 6 omganger glattstrikk MED 1 kantmaske rille i hver side. Det vil si at du strikker glattstrikk over alle masker (rett fra retten, vrang fra vrangen) men den ytterste masken i hver side strikkes i rille (rett fra retten, rett fra vrangen). Altså, på 1 pinne (fra retten) strikkes alle masker rett,. Snu. strikk 1 maske rett, strikk vrang til det gjenstår 1 maske, 1 maske rett. Snu. Gjenta disse 2 pinnene 2 ganger til = 6 omganger. Du har nå strikket 6 omganger med glattstrikk med 1 kantmaske i rille i hver side. Kantmasken i rille fortsetter langs hele selen. God fornøyelse.

Oppskrifen på lue,hvor finner jeg den?

Maria 11.12.2018 - 19:20:

Muss die Bruchkante für den unteren Beleg wirklich vor A4 gestrickt werden? Ich würde ihn erst danach stricken

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 09:57:

Liebe Marie, ja genau, die Bruchkante muss vor A.4 gestrickt werden, A.4 wird von der Rückseite dann umgeschlagen/gesehen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bente Aarsrud 30.11.2018 - 08:27:

Skjønner ikke oppskriften på selene …. prøver å prøver , men må rekke opp . Er det meningen vi skal klippe tråden hele tiden ?

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 15:02:

Hei Bente. Nei, du skal strikke uten å måtte klippe tråden. Sikter du til de omgangene der det kun strikkes med natur? Om du tvinner med deg den røde tråden på baksiden av arbeidet så har du begge trådene i samme ende hele tiden. God fornøyelse

Silvi 26.11.2018 - 20:20:

Hallo, habe da mal eine Frage der Beleg wird somit nach innen geklappt , ist so eine Art Verstärkung , oder. Wenn ich das ganze gestrickt habe Fang ich dann mit dem Ersten Muster an, richtig.

DROPS Design 27.11.2018 kl. 08:42:

Liebe Silvi, der Beleg ist so gestrickt, daß die "Passe" (= Gürtel) so doppelt gestrickt, und oben dieser Passe haben Sie dann einen Pikot-Rand (wie z.B. in diesem Video aber das erste Teil (innenseite) wird ca genau so lang als das Farbemuster. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Elena 22.11.2018 - 14:40:

Salve, sto facendo questo abitino ( mod. 32/2 ) e mi chiedo se i fili bianchi che si stanno formando nella parte della gonna, alla fine non possono " tirare il lavoro " nel senso che non si stende bene. spero in una risposta grazie

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 15:03:

Buongiorno Elena, se durante la lavorazione del motivo il lavoro risulta troppo "tirato", probabilmente significa che sta tirando troppo il filo del colord non in uso quando lo riprende per proseguire la lavorazione. Provi a vedere se questo video le può essere di aiuto. Buon lavoro!

Tina 12.11.2018 - 23:46:

Hvordan ska vi felle på denne kjolen...? Jeg har gjort helt feil😰😱🤢

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 14:12:

hei Tina. Mener du hvordan du feller av? Du feller av som vanlig: strikk 1 maske, strikk 1 maske, trekk den første masken over, strikk 1 maske, trekk den andre masken over osv. Her er en video som viser hvordan å felle av: . Hvis du mener hvordan du strikker brettekanten, strikker du slik: 2 masker rett sammen, 1 kast. Gjenta dette ut omgangen. God fornøyelse.

Madeleine 10.11.2018 - 07:36:
