Margo 25.04.2019 - 09:35:

The knitting gauge for this cardigan does not correspond with the gauge recommended for this yarn. Just wanted to make sure that this is correct. Would this just be a very loose knit?

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 09:56:

Dear Margo, you will work here with 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Vivaldi or Brushed Alpaca Silk = 2 strands together with a quite loose tension to give you 13 sts x 19 rows = 10 x 10 cm - make sure to get the correct tension, change needle size if required. Happy knitting!

Caroline Desterbecq 22.05.2012 - 20:35:

Ik doe de M3 anders, want het lukt mij niet, ik doe 1KT, 3 tricotsteek, 24 M3, 3 tricotsteek, 1 KT. want ik krijg geen mooie rechte lijn aan de zijkant.

Caroline Desterbecq 22.05.2012 - 16:41:

Moet ik nu tot 11cm breien met mijn M1 bij mijn voorpand?

DROPS Design 23.05.2012 kl. 13:10:

Ja - net zoals op het achterpand

DROPS Design NL 22.05.2012 - 16:34:

Dus de laatste keer brei je 1 omslag en de st 5 en 6 r: haal 1 r st van de nld, 1 r en haal de afgeh st daarover.

Caroline Desterbecq 22.05.2012 - 16:05:

1 kantst, 3-3-0-0-3 tricotst, M.3 over de volgende 30-30-30-30-40 st, 3-3-0-0-3 tricotst, 1 kantst: klopt niet, M3 24 steken!

DROPS Design 22.05.2012 kl. 16:32:

Het klopt! M.3 = 12 st per herhaling, 30 st = 2,5 keer herhalen. 2 x volledig en laatste keer de eerste 6 st van het motief.

Caroline Desterbecq 22.05.2012 - 15:08:

Ik heb nog een fout gezien :-(, bij het begin van de voorpand (M1) moet je daar niet tot 11 cm de tekening doen? want anders klopt het niet met de achterpand

DROPS Design 23.05.2012 kl. 13:14:

Je breit het voorpand zoals het achterpand - je hebt hier dan alleen een ander aantal st. Dus ook M.1 tot 11 cm.

Caroline Desterbecq 22.05.2012 - 14:21:

Rechtervoorpand tss M2 en M3 moeten we daar geen 1 rij tricosteek doen? anders klopt het niet bij de volgende tekening M3

DROPS Design 22.05.2012 kl. 15:01:

Zie mijn net geplaatste reactie op je vorige vraag. Het patroon is nu aangepast en klopt.

Caroline Desterbecq 19.05.2012 - 19:33:

Hoogte klopt niet bij de armsgaten en bij de laatste M3 (4*) kunnen jullie dit nakijken? want op de tekening staat er bij mijn maat S, 66 cm aan de armsgaten

DROPS Design 21.05.2012 kl. 10:28:

Je leest de afmetingen zo: De totale hoogte moet 66 cm zijn, waarvan de armsgaten 19 cm hoog zijn. Wij gaan sowieso nu ook het patroon helemaal doornemen om te zien of er verder fouten zijn. Ik reageer vervolgens op uw andere reactie.

Caroline Desterbecq 18.05.2012 - 21:23:

Het is nog niet juist, 1 kst, 4 r, 48 M3, 5 st tricot, 1 ksteek, dit is het juiste, dank zij, dolce lana

DROPS Design 22.05.2012 kl. 14:59:

Hoi Caroline. We hebben het patroon helemaal doorgenomen en het bleek vol fouten te zitten. Wij denken dat er een fout / verwarring met een ander patroon is gebeurd bij het publiceren. Het patroon is nu helemaal juist! Ons excuses hiervoor.

Caroline Desterbecq 18.05.2012 - 15:55:

Ik ben begonnen aan het achterpand en bij teltekening M3 zeggen jullie 1 kantst, 3 r, 24 st M3, 3 r, 1 kantst. dit klopt toch niet?

DROPS Design 18.05.2012 kl. 18:25:

Je had helemaal gelijk - het was een foutje. Het patroon is nu aangepast.
