When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39 cm, cast off for armhole at each side on every other row as follows: 3-4-5-5-5 sts 1 time, 1 st 2-3-3-5-7 times (see Decreasing above) = 60-64-68-72-76 sts.

Purl 1 row from wrong side and knit 1 row from right side. Continue in rib with 2 knitted sts and 2 purled sts at each side. When band measures 9-9-10-10-11 cm, cast off loosely in rib.
Arm band: Pick up approx 68 to 84 sts (must be divisible by 4) within 1 st round armhole on circular needles size 4.5mm with 1 thread Silketweed and 1 thread Alpaca (= double thread). Purl 1 row, knit 1 row and continue in rib. When band measures 2 cm, cast off loosely in rib.

Fråga gärna om hjälp i din garnbutik. Vi kan tyvärr inte hjälpa dig att anpassa beskrivningarna.

Ik vraag me af of ik de voorbies goed doe. Zoals ik het patroon lees moet de voorbies gebreid worden met om en om 2 recht, 2 av op de verkeerde kant; helemaal recht op de goede kant. Nu krijg ik een soort van boordsteek, maar met minder rek en een soort van ribbelsteek op de achterkant, de voorkant ziet eruit als een normale boordsteek, maar het trekt wat minder samen. Doe ik het zoals de bedoeling is, of moet ik de boordsteek net zou breien als bij de onderkant van voorpanden en achterpand?

DROPS Design 08.05.2013 kl. 12:04:

Hoi Christel. Je doet het verkeerd. Je moet Boordsteek breien: 2 r, 2 av met 2 ribbelst en 2 av aan beide kanten. Dwz, je begint met 2 ribbelst, 2 av, 2 r, 2 av... en eindigt met 2 av en 2 ribbelst. Op de verkeerde kant brei je dan: 2 ribbelst, 2 r, 2 av, 2 r... en eindigt met 2 r en 2 ribbelst. Dan zou je bies worden zoals op de foto.

Ich hatte angefragt, ob bei der Beschreibung zu 93-27 beim Vorderteil der Abschnitt zur Ausschnittlösung fehlen kann. Ich konnte dazu nichts finden. Ich bitte um eine kurze Info oder ggf. um Ergänzung der Anleitung. Danke. Renate Wiesenack

DROPS Design 01.02.2013 kl. 21:32:

Hallo Frau Wiesenack, siehe Antwort vom 22.1. Der Ausschnitt ist eine schräg laufende Linie, die bereits bei 22-23-24-25-26 cm beginnt, dies ist in der Anleitung beschrieben (unter dem Abschnitt Halsabnahme) . Dürfen wir Sie bitten, sich für weitere individuelle Erklärungen an den Laden zu wenden, in dem Sie die Wolle gekauft haben. Dort hilft man Ihnen gerne weiter.

Renate Wiesenack 21.01.2013 - 13:21:

Bei o.g. Anleitung kann ich nichts zur Ausschnittgestaltung vorn finden. Kann es sein, daß diese Passage fehlt?

DROPS Design 22.01.2013 kl. 08:49:

Liebe Frau Wiesenack, die Beschreibung zum Halsausschnitt findet sich unter dem Abschnitt „Halsabketten“, es war noch eine alte Übersetzung, ich habe es in „Halsabnahme“ geändert. Der Ausschnitt ist eine schräg laufende Linie, die bereits bei 22-23-24-25-26 cm beginnt. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Anna 07.11.2011 - 11:57:

Danke. Habs am Abend dann nochmal in Ruhe durchgelesen und nochmal durchgerechnet. Es passt.

DROPS Deutsch 07.11.2011 - 10:38:

Die Anleuitung stimmt so: 38 M. anschlagen und auf 35 M. angleichen. Seitenzunehmen + 4 M. Für das Armloch - 4 - 3. Für den Halsausschnitt - 12 und für die Schulter + 4 = 24 Maschen.

Anna 06.11.2011 - 18:19:

Hi I think I found a mistake in the pattern. Its the front side, if I cast on 38 stitches for size M, and account for all stitches to be knitted together and to be added I end up with 20 stitches instead of 24 as written in the pattern. Should I just cast on an extra 4 stitches or leave out some knitting together or casting on extra stitches within the pattern? Thanks. Anna

Denna blev något för kort i midjan, man behöver förlänga den lite tycker jag.

DROPS Design 26.01.2009 - 21:27:

Don't know were you find that info, pattern says: keeping 1 edge st in garter st at each side and begin rib with K 2 (at the center front). This means 1 stitch in garter each side and for size L 40 sts inbetween that should be worked in rib. If you have K2 towards mid front, you will then have P2 towards side. Back piece have K2 each side, so this will match the P2 toward sides on front pieces.

Michelle 24.01.2009 - 01:05:

Hi, I have a question about the instructions for the front pieces. When starting the ribbing it says to "continue in rib with 1 seam st and 2 garter sts towards mid front and 1 seam st and 2 purled sts at side" - however if you start with 1 seam st, 2 garter, followed by 2K 2P rib, then the rib does not end with 2 P at the side (as written in the pattern). Does this mean there should 4 purls at the side, for the sake of ending with 2 purls? Thank you for your help!
