Hi, the pattern for the sleeves in the smallest size does not work as stated: When the piece measures 11-11-13-14-10 cm inc 1 st at each side every 3.5-3-2.5-2-2 cm a total of 11-12-13-15-17 times = 70-74-78-84-90 sts. When sleeve measures 48-47-47-46-44 cm bind off If you increase 11 times every 3.5cm, that takes 38.5 cm, after the initial 11 makes it 39.5cm, but the bind off is supposed to start at 48 cm. Which of the numbers should I adjust? Thank you.

DROPS Design 13.02.2013 kl. 17:17:

Dear Ines, first inc starts when piece measures 11 cm, then you repeat 10 more times every 3.5 cm = 35 cm + 11 cm = 46 cm. You will work 2 more cm before casting off for cap. Happy knitting !

Would it be appropriate to knit this cardigan with just Alpaca, without the glitter yarn? Thank you.

DROPS Design 13.11.2012 kl. 15:56:

Dear Mrs Millar, Glitter brings here just a touche of shiny, glitter effect, so that you may knit without Glitter, with Muskat or any other alternative yarn from same group. Happy Knitting!

Aivan niin, neulot siis sileää neuletta, mutta etureunan uloin silmukka neulotaan jokaisella kerroksella oikein.

Anna 27.04.2010 - 22:19:

Haluaisin tietää, mitä tarkoittaa lause "Neulo 1 krs oikein nurjalta puolelta, jatka sitten neulomalla sileää neuletta 1:llä ainaoikeinneulotulla s:lla kohti etureunaa." Tämä lause on siis kohdassa vasen etukappale, 2. lause. Onko tarkoitus, että etureunassa neulotaan aina yksi silmukka ainaoikein-neuleella ja lopuilla silmukoilla sileää?
