I do not understand the diagram for the neck bind off st all. Please help

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 11:30:

Dear Deborah, you will work diagram 1.D one time in height and then 1.A one time in height on the stitches towards neck - on right front piece, work the last 6 chain spaces on shoulder as shown in 1.D starting reading diagram with first row from WS (= left towards the right) and on left front piece you will work 1.D with first row from RS (= right towards front). Happy crocheting!

Deanna 05.08.2019 - 00:51:

Oh yes it helped me a lot to have those stitch markers in the front half of the tank top I’d just lay backside on that and know where to increase or decrease without having to measure not knowing how much I stretched out the front I recommend doing stitch markers

Deanna 04.08.2019 - 21:31:

I think I’ve figured it out when I’m binding off the neck I read the cardigan instructions they helped I think I would cut yarn after getting the desired length then cut yarn and attach to the opposite soo and do the same it might not be what you did but I think it’ll work

Deanna 04.08.2019 - 20:51:

I don’t know if this will be helpful or not I’m working this top now I’m placing stitch markers on the front you work first at the places you increase and decrease just in case I stretch the project differently for the back piece I can just lay it against the front and see where it’s been increased easily and that the pieces are stretched the same just what I’m doing maybe it’ll help me and maybe others I’ll let you know when I get to the back piece increase

Deanna 04.08.2019 - 20:38:

I don’t understand thrust the tank top shoulder I know I’m going down to 3 chain 5 spaces am I to do one side and then cut yarn to do the other shoulder since the back piece begins I’d be cutting my yarn for it or am I slip stitching across in those stitches until I get to the last four on the other side?

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 10:17:

Dear Deanna, each shoulder is worked separately after neck, ie when 3 chain-spaces are left for shoulder, continue over these chain spaces as before until finished length, then cut the yarn and work over the 3 chain-spaces on the other side for the 2nd shoulder. Happy crocheting!

Karen 12.06.2019 - 16:40:

Could locate this yarn in your store., can you please advise what ply it is and is crochet cotton compatible?

DROPS Design 13.06.2019 kl. 08:53:

Dear Karen, you will find here all stores in or shipping to Canada - and more informations about the yarn there. Happy crocheting!

Laura Weer 01.06.2019 - 16:39:

Toch nog wat onduidelijkheid bij de top: als je de 1e schouder aan de voorkant heb gedaan,hecht je dan af, of laat je de draad hangen? Voor het achterpand staat: " Kant af voor de hals als volgt: Haak 2 nld over de eerste 3 l-boogjes op elke schouder". Maar welke steek, vasten?

Laura 31.05.2019 - 09:53:

Ik ben er al uit! (vorige vraag over armsgaten)

Laura 28.05.2019 - 15:59:

Sorry ben ik weer...Ik ben nu toe aan de armsgaten van de top. Het afkanten van maat S en M snap ik wel…alleen niet voor maat L-XL: “Maat L + XL: Kant af als in Maat S + M x 1”. Ook mbv tekening 1C begrijp ik niet wat er met X 1 wordt bedoeld. Moet ik ipv 1 boogje 2 boogjes afkanten? Dus als ik nog 2 boogjes op de naald heb, dán al beginnen met afkanten? Of moet ik, als ik nog 1 boogje op de naald heb, keren en dan bij twee boogjes met HV haken?

Lisa 26.05.2019 - 08:16:

I am a very experienced crocheter however I am finding this pattern extremely hard to follow. I'm making the XXL so I should make sure I have 27 chain spaces or do I need to follow the schematic and go with the measurements and then increase

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 10:45:

Dear Lisa, on the jacket - back piece, crochet the 151 chains, then work Row 1 as explained = 25 ch-spaces, and repeat now Row 2 until piece measures 15 cm then increase 1 ch-space in each side = 27 ch-spaces. When piece measures34 cm, cast off the for the armholes (19 ch-spaces remain after armholes). Happy crocheting!
