Thank you very much for your prompt response. I have been able to decide on the correct size to knit. Kind regards

Pat Stiff 30.03.2018 - 13:12:

Thank you very much for your quick response and I have been able to work out the correct size to knit. Kind regards

Patricia Stiff 28.03.2018 - 20:51:

You do not provide bust size in the pattern measurements. I am normally a UK size 10 or European size 38 but have full breasts. Please advise.

Dear Mrs Stiff, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements in cm - taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup tous les genres de modèles que vous proposez sur votre site et j'en tricote souvent. Malheureusement, trop de modèles se tricotent en aiguilles circulaires. Ne serait-il pas possible de proposer les deux formules (aiguille circulaire et aiguilles traditionneles) cela nous éviterait de calculer ce qui est fastidieux et générateur de fautes éventuelles. Merci et continuez à nous proposer de jolis modèles.

Patti 23.05.2017 - 16:52:

Thank you --- I now understand! I guess I was confused by the "1 vertical repeat" which I took to mean that I would only repeat the chart one time, but now I realize that you finish your number of stitches needed to complete the round. Thanks for clarifying as I'm still learning how to pattern read.

Patti 23.05.2017 - 16:24:

Thank you for answering back --- I still have a question --- when it says work round and then continue with 1 vertical repeat of M.2 --- so after I've knitted K3/P3 all the way around --- then I start the chart on lower right and move upward 2 times for the one repeat --- that would still only be 144 sts and I still have 24 (not 12 as mentioned before) stitches left --- so do I start M.2 repeat again to complete the 24 sts left on needle? I'm still confused. Thanks

DROPS Design 23.05.2017 kl. 16:33:

Dear Patty, there are 168 sts in size S, and you work M.2 a total of 28 times in width (= 28 x 6 sts = 168 sts). Happy knitting!

Patti 23.05.2017 - 06:12:

Once I have 168 sts left on my needle and I've worked K3/P3 --- and now working from the chart with 1 repeat there are only 144 sts to be worked and not 168 sts. where are the missing 12 sts . What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your help!

DROPS Design 23.05.2017 kl. 08:50:

Dear Patti, after rib you work M.2 (= 6 sts) over the 168 sts = repeat 28 times M.2 in total = 28x6 sts = 168 sts. Then work M.1 (= 8 sts) a total of 21 times in width: 21 x 8 sts = 168 sts. Happy knitting!

Annette Lewis 27.12.2016 - 11:42:

The vertical lines running up the bodice seem to want to lean (twist) how do I fix it or does it fix itself when I wear it? I fear I will be forever pulling it round to straighten the lines as I wear it. Any suggestions?

DROPS Design 29.12.2016 kl. 14:36:

Dear Mrs Lewis, the sts in diagram M.1 should be always straight, ie over the first 3 K sts you will work a lace pattern every other row, then you should have P5 all the way, make sure sts are not displaced when working. Happy knitting!

Annette Lewis 09.12.2016 - 05:06:

I am having trouble with M1, on the 2nd row it says K3 left the first one over (2 stitches left) do I 2 YO into a purl stitch? The purl 4, repeat. But on the next row when I try to K3 the last knit is into the YO and it says to purl one and drop the other?

DROPS Design 09.12.2016 kl. 09:34:

Dear Mrs Lewis, on row 2 make 2 YOs between K3 (2 left) and next P st - on row 3, K 1st YO and drop 2nd YO = there are K3 again. See also video below how to make a double YO and K just one of both (the YO is P in the video since worked back and forth, in M.1 you will have to K the 1st YO). Happy knitting!

Demi 14.06.2016 - 15:27:

Ik wil graag dit truitje breien op 2 naalden. Zijn de teltekeningen door en heengaande naald uitgelegd? of alléén de doorgaande naalden (gezien met rondbreinaalden alléén doorgaande naalden zijn). En voor de ribbelsteek met rondbreinaald is av aan de goede kant dan rechts aan de averechtse kant met 2 naalden ? Jammer dat er geen beschrijvingen zijn voor 2 naalden. Ook bij de andere topjes

DROPS Design 14.06.2016 kl. 15:37:

Hoi Demi. Er zijn ook patronen voor heen en weer breien. Je kan hier zien hoe je onze telpatronen moet lezen. Alle naalden zijn weergegeven, dus ga je nu heen en weer breien ipv in de rondte zal elke 2e nld (rij) op de verkeerde kant zijn. Veel plezier.
