Ik zie het telpatroon niet

Dag Gerda,

Het telpatroon is nu toegevoegd. Veel breiplezier!

Marieke 16.05.2018 - 09:56:

Goedemorgen, ik zie het telpatroon niet staan. Het lijkt te zijn weggevallen? groeten, Marieke

Wendy M 27.01.2018 - 22:06:

After knitting about 6 cm of the sleeve it seemed like the cuff was very small for a 12-18 month old. I restarted casting on 42 stitches on 3mm needles then increasing 6 stitches to 48. Seems much better. You might want to reconsider the cuff size for the larger sizes.

Wendy M 23.01.2018 - 13:32:

I’m sorry....I meant I’m making the 12-18 month size...so is the increase 6 or 8 stitche? I think there’s a typo because is says increase 6 then in parentheses is says you will have 48 stitches

DROPS Design 23.01.2018 kl. 13:41:

Dear Wendy, thank you, this typo has been forwarded to our design team, I would increase 8 sts to get the 48 sts required. Happy knitting!

Wendy M 22.01.2018 - 21:00:

1: Is the sleeve knit in the round? You don't say anywear to join but you write for rounds not rows. 2: For the sleeve you state "Change to needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and continue in M.1, at the same time inc 2-4-6 (10-16) sts evenly on first round = 40-44-48" I'm making the 6-9 month size, do I increase 6 stitches and end up with 46? (It states 48) or do I increase 8 stitches...I'm not sure which is correct.

DROPS Design 23.01.2018 kl. 08:28:

Dear Wendy, sleeves are worked in the round. When switching with dpn size 3 mm, work 1st round in diagram while at the same time increase evenly 4 sts in size 6/9 months (2nd size) = 44 sts. Happy knitting!

Frances Ordway 23.01.2017 - 17:31:

Pattern M1 is a 12 pattern repeat. Size 6-9 mo has 135 stitches. This is not divisible by 12. If you don't count the 2 edge stitches that makes 133. That is also not divisible by 12. I am a long time knitter but this one has me baffled. Can you help?

DROPS Design 24.01.2017 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Ordway, work the 135 sts as follows: 1 ege st, 11 x M1 (= 11x12=132 sts), work now the first st in M.1 and finish with 1 edge st. Happy knitting!
