Bonjour Lydie et merci pour les augmentations qui sont effectivement à faire sur le côté. Ces augmentations se font à des hauteurs différentes pour qu'elles soient plus harmonieuses.

Lydie 08.03.2011 - 00:19:

Dernière chose : je ne comprends pas pourquoi pour le dos on augmente 1 m de chaque côté à 10 et 16 cm et pour les devants on augmente à 7 et 13 cm. Merci.

Lydie 08.03.2011 - 00:16:

Désolée, j'ai encore un petit problème à signaler (je ne m'en suis aperçue qu'après) : pour les devants, il est noté de monter 17 mailles (pour la plus petite taille) et d'augmenter 1 m de chaque côté à 7 et 13 cm et il est écrit que cela doit faire 19 m. Or 17 plus 4 cela fait 21 mailles. Alors à mon avis, il ne faut augmenter que du côté des emmanchures, soit 2 mailles en tout, ce qui fait bien 19 m. Merci. Cordialement. Lydie

Drops Design France 07.03.2011 - 09:31:

Bonjour Lydie, effectivement, il faut rabattre d'abord les mailles pour les emmanchures, le modèle a été corrigé, merci.

Lydie 06.03.2011 - 11:15:

Bonjour, c'est vraiment génial de pouvoir trouver de si beaux modèles de tricot. Je suis en train de réaliser ce modèle et j'ai un problème : pour les diminutions des emmanchures, il est dit de diminuer 1 m de chaque côté tous les 2 rangs 3 fois, ce qui pour moi fait 6 mailles. Or avec au début 37 mailles, on me dit qu'après ces diminutions je dois avoir 25 mailles, ce qui fait 12 mailles de moins. Alors je ne sais pas quoi faire. Merci de vérifier. Cordialement

i en längre modell hade jag gärna gjort den. antar att det är att bara göra den lite längre på egen hand.

Tina 13.12.2006 - 09:30:

Likte den grove strukturen mikset med feminin fasong! Fargen er flott.
