Anne 06.04.2014 - 21:02:

Bonjour, Merci de me dire quelle longueur doit faire le fil de l'aiguille circulaire pour que les manches tiennent.

DROPS Design 07.04.2014 kl. 10:16:

Bonjour Anne, une aiguille circulaire de 80 cm peut suffire. Bon tricot !

Monique 12.10.2010 - 21:10:

Aha! weer wat geleerd! dank je wel Tine, dit wordt een hele mooie trui, leuk model, voor mijn dochter!

DROPS Design NL 12.10.2010 - 16:16:

Hoi Monique. Het aantal st is altijd incl. de kantst tenzij anders wordt vermeld in het patroon ;o). Gr. Tine

Monique 12.10.2010 - 15:48:

Tine, sorry daar ben ik weer even. Bij dit patroon staat: "Brei vervolgens boordst met 1 kantst aan weerskanten." Zitten die al in die 74 steken of moet ik ze apart opzetten?

DROPS Design 30.08.2010 - 18:31:

Patricia, thank you so much. You are right it should be dec. I have corrected the pattern.

Patricia Korbin 28.08.2010 - 04:40:

Under "front" on the 3rd line do you mean to dec 4-4-6-6-6 sts evenly spaced on the row? If I take the total cast on sts and dec (not inc.) this number I get the totals of 70-76-86-92-104 sts. If I inc. instead of dec. I have 98 sts in the L size. Quite a difference. Please advise.
