EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PIECE:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge in height = 2 rounds; Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.2). The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (for body):
Decrease 4 stitches on each decrease-round.
Decrease before the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at each of the other marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased on round).
Decrease after the marker thread as follows:
Work as far as the marker thread, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at each of the other marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased).
Work decreases alternately before and after the marker thread each time you decrease.

DECREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 252 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 12) = 21. 
In this example, decrease by knitting together each 20th and 21st stitch.

INCREASE TIP-1 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 13.5. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 13th and 14th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

DRESS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the yoke. Then the sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles before they are placed on same circular needle as the body. The yoke is worked to finish.

BODY:
Cast on 264-264-288-312-336-336 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Muskat. Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round (=mid-back). This thread follows your work upwards. Work 2 RIDGES - read description above. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work pattern A.1 a total of 11-11-12-13-14-14 times on the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed in height the piece measures approx. 20 cm. Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows: One marker thread is inserted after 29-29-32-34-36-36 stitches, the next marker thread after 74-74-80-88-96-96 new stitches, the next marker thread after 58-58-64-68-72-72 new stitches and the last marker thread after 74-74-80-88-96-96 new stitches. There are 29-29-32-34-36-36 stitches left on round after the last thread. Continue with stocking stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round begin to decrease by each of the 4 marker threads – read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease (alternately before and after the marker threads) every 2 cm 2-4-3-2-4-9 times and every cm 25-21-23-25-21-11 times (= a total of 27-25-26-27-25-20 decrease-rounds) = 156-164-184-204-236-256 stitches. Remove all the marker threads from the piece, except the marker thread at the beginning of the round. Insert 1 marker thread on both sides of the piece; i.e. one marker thread after the first 39-41-46-51-59-64 stitches and the second marker thread after 78-82-92-102-118-128 new stitches. There are 39-41-46-51-59-64 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread. When the piece measures 49 cm increase 1 stitch on both sides of each marker thread in the sides – read INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every 4-3-3-3-3-2 cm a total of 3-4-4-4-4-5 times = 168-180-200-220-252-276 stitches. When the piece measures 60-61-61-61-61-61 cm, work the next round as follows: Work the first 38-41-45-50-57-63 stitches, cast off the next 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 stitches on each side of marker thread) work the next 76-82-90-100-114-126 stitches, cast off the next 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 stitches on each side of marker thread) and work the remaining 38-41-45-50-57-63 stitches on the round = 76-82-90-100-114-126 stitches on both front and back pieces (a total of 152-164-180-200-228-252 stitches). Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 54-60-62-68-72-76 stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and Muskat. Work 2 ridges in the round. Knit 1 round where you increase 4 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 58-64-66-72-76-80 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work stocking stitch in the round for 1 cm. Now cast off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve for armhole (i.e. the first and last 4 stitches on the round) = 50-56-56-62-64-68 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work the other sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Place sleeves on the same circular needle as the body, where you cast off stitches for the armhole on each side = 252-276-292-324-356-388 stitches. Knit 1 round where you decrease 12-12-12-12-14-12 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP-2 = 240-264-280-312-342-376 stitches. Then work the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Size S is finished, continue with next paragraph.
Size M: Work stocking stitch for 2 cm, then work the next paragraph.
In sizes L, XL, XXL and XXXL work stocking stitch for 4-5-7-9 cm, at the same time as you decrease evenly as follows:
Size L: Decrease 16 stitches every 2 cm 1 time = 264 stitches.
Size XL: Decrease 12 stitches every 2 cm a total of 2 times = 288 stitches.
Size XXL: Decrease 18 stitches every 2 cm a total of 3 times = 288 stitches.
Size XXXL: Decrease 16 stitches every 2 cm a total of 4 times = 312 stitches.

All sizes:
Now work pattern A.2 – choose diagram for your size, a total of 10-11-11-12-12-13 times on the round. When A.2 has been completed in height there are 130-143-143-144-144-156 stitches on the round. Purl for 0-0-0-1-1-1 cm, then purl 1 round where you adjust the number of stitches - read DECREASE TIP-2/INCREASE TIP-2, to 132-140-144-148-152-160 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 2 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew together the opening under the sleeves.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit or purl the yarn overs (as the diagram shows) to leave holes
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= purl 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= knit 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased)
= When working this round, displace the beginning of the round 1 stitch backwards; i.e. the beginning of the round with a star is the last stitch on the previous round. When A.1 has been worked all the way round, knit the next stitch. Then begin the next round as earlier

Kann es sein, dass es in der Legende ein paar Fehler gibt? Ich vermisse die Symbole für die ersten drei Stellen im Diagramm.

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 11:46:

Liebe Tealea, Diagram sowie Legende sollten richtig sein, welche Symbole vermissen Sie genau? (die 4 ersten Reihen in A.1 werden z.B. glatt rechts gestrickt). Viel Spaß beim stricken!
