Dear Maha, when you put all your sts together, insert a marker in the first and in the last st from both sleeves. Start then dec for raglan when 2 sts remain before st with marker and work as follows : K2 tog, K1 (st with marker), sl 1, K1, psso. Repeat at each marker: you dec 2 sts at each marker=8 sts per dec row. Happy knitting!

Gegen die Mitte = vordere Mitte der Weste. gegen den Hals abketten = für den Halsausschnitt.

Bettina Roeder 10.02.2012 - 18:03:

DROPS 100-9: Ich verstehe diesen Satz in der Anleitung nicht: Gleichzeitig nach 26-28-30-32-34 cm je 8 M. gegen die Mitte auf einen Hilfsfaden legen und bei jeder 2 R. gegen den Hals abk.: 1 M. total 4 Mal. Was bedeutet "gegen die Mitte" und "gegen den Hals abketten"? Kann mir das jemand besser erklären? Danke, Bettina

Nøjagtig som der står i opskriften: ... fortsæt i glatstrik men 4 forkantm i hver side strikkes i retstrik til færdig mål. God fornøjelse!

Henriette Villhelmsen 18.12.2008 - 14:22:

Hej Garnstudio, Jeg skal igang med denne meget søde og anvendelige lille jakke/bluse og har lidt spørgsmål. Hvad menes med kantmaske og hvordan strikkes de?? Jeg havde tænkt at lave den med lange ærmer, så jeg fortsætter vel bare til ønskede længde? Med venlig hilsen Henriette

Helene Clausen 09.11.2008 - 08:26:

Total sød jakke/trøje og top moderne. Flere kolleger har spurgt til opskrift;) Fik lavet slåede knapper hos skrædder, hvilket gjorde den meget rustik.
