Hej! Diagram M.4 stämmer inte med bilden! Enligt diagrammet är det inga flätor. Men på bilden ser man, när man tittar noga, att det är flätor över två maskor (som i M.2). Detta är mycket snyggare än enligt mönstret. Jag är ganska irriterad över att upptäcka det först efter att ha stickat en bra bit. Det påverkar även ärmar och bakstycke.\\r\\nMen snyggt blir det när det är färdigt!

Bonjour, A quelle taille correspond la taille L? Je vous remercie de votre réponse

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 10:13:

Bonjour Mme Patural, nos premiers modèles remontent aux années 80, la mode change au cours des années et les tailles varient d'un pays à l'autre. Pour trouvez votre taille, mesurez un pull similaire dont vous aimez la forme et comparez-les aux mesures du schéma. Bon tricot!

Is het mogelijk om antwoord op mijn vraag te krijgen over het benodigde aantal bolletjes muskat?

Christina D Cersosimo 26.07.2018 - 18:41:

It may be helpful to add a note in the Sleeves section to incorporate the increased stiches on the outer edges into the pattern established with Chart M.4 (K2, P3)

Alie Van Krieken 25.07.2018 - 13:24:

Ik heb nu 12 cm gebreid met 1 bolletje muskat, kom ik dan wel uit met het benodigde aantal van 16 bolletjes?\r\nEn in het diagram staat terugkerende toer averecht boven averecht, moet dat niet dan zijn averecht boven recht en recht boven averecht?

Florence Freemantle 17.09.2017 - 11:04:

It seems to me that, in the charts, the blank square should be described as K on the right side and P on the wrong side and, for the square with the dot in it, P on the right side and K on the wrong side. Is this correct?

DROPS Design 17.09.2017 kl. 12:21:

Hi Florence, You are right that the blank square is knit from the right side and purl from the wrong side and the oppsite for the square with the dot in it. However, it does say in the pattern that the diagram shows all the rows in the pattern from the right side, so it might be confusing to others if we then said the square was knit from right side and purl from wrong side. Happy knitting!

Eileen Sterio 16.02.2016 - 14:45:

Love this sweater ..coming out great. Quick question -- pattern calls for binding off at either end for the armholes. How does one bind-off at the end of the row. I have been continuing with the b/o every row(r and r side) -- will this be ok?

DROPS Design 16.02.2016 kl. 15:53:

Dear Mrs Sterio, you will bind off for armhole on each side, ie at the beg of each row on each side (both from RS and from WS). Happy knitting!

Linda 26.08.2015 - 01:36:

Are the patterns for right side rows only and the wrong side rows purl across?

DROPS Design 26.08.2015 kl. 10:32:

Dear Linda, all rows are included in diagrams, ie RS and WS rows, 1 square = 1 st x 1 row - click here for more info about diagrams. Read from the right towards the left from RS (starting at the bottom corner on the right side), and from the left towards the right from WS. Happy knitting!

-Is de "vlecht" hetzelfde als de kabel? -Bij beschrijving-Patroon: patroon staat overdwars- is dit nog steeds zo? -VP staat Patroon 4,(start bij eerste vierkant van het telpatroon) Moet ik dan niet kijken naar A,B,C, of D?

DROPS Design 21.01.2015 kl. 16:02:

Hoi Ineke. Ja, Vlecht en kabeltje is hetzelfde. Ik heb dat nu ook aangepast in het patroon. Het telpatroon staat goed, dat is een fout in de tekst.

Lena 15.03.2014 - 15:38:

Det är ju mindre maskor på bakstycket för att det inte stickas flätmönster.
