I am doing the increases on the sides of the bottom part - I did the first increases and knit a couple of rounds, but the increases are very visible. I used the M1L/M1R technique. Do you have any suggestion on a different technique that would be less visible on the WS? Maybe I should try with the YO+Ktbl? Also, the first decreases after the 3/3 rib: I did all with k2tog, but on some spots they are very visible and mess up a work that would be much more neat otherwise...

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 12:14:

Dear Francesca, you can try with knit front and back - remember jumper will then be turned inside out -the purl side is the right side of piece. Happy knitting!

Hei! Jeg har strikket denne genseren i Paris-garn, (og har riktig strikkefasthet), men syntes den ble litt løs. Hvis jeg prøver å strikke med Nepal-garn, er det garnet litt fastere i strikkefasthet?

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 16:20:

Hei Unni. Paris er et bomullsgarn og er derfor mer "kompakt" og mindre elastisk enn et ullgarn - som feks Nepal. Et ullgarn er ofte "løsere" i teksturen enn bomull og vil nok fylle ut mer mellom maskene. Slevom de har samme strikkefatshet vil nok et ullgarn virke tettere enn et bomullsgarn - fordi det fyller ut mer. Du kan strikke deg en prøvelapp og se hva du syntes. God fornøyelse.

J'ai les explications mais pas le diagramme M1. Pouvez vous me le faire parvenir

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:35:

Bonjour Mme Laforet, les diagrammes sont de nouveau visibles sur notre site après la maintenance de ces derniers jours, vous trouverez M.1 juste à gauche du schéma des mesures. Bon tricot!

Lion 05.02.2016 - 19:22:

Bonsoir , Alors , il y a une erreur sur les explications , il est écrit : "diminuer 19 fois tous les 2 rangs pour toutes les tailles , puis diminuer tous les 0-2-4-6-8 rangs " je ne sais pas si je dois suivre le texte ou bien ce que vous m'avez écrit ???? En vous remerciant , cordialement , V LION .

DROPS Design 08.02.2016 kl. 10:33:

Bonjour Mme Lion, oups autant pour moi, en taille L ,vous diminuez d'abord 19 fois tous les 2 tours puis tous les 4 tours/rangs, en même temps n'oubliez pas l'encolure. Bon tricot!

Lion 26.01.2016 - 09:24:

Bonjour , je reviens vers vous encore pour les diminutions du raglan , en effet il est écrit de diminuer 19 fois tous les 2 rangs puis tous les 4 rangs (taille L ) alors que vous m'écrivez : " tous les rangs " ; comment faire ??? D'autre part , après l'encolure faut-il continuer en aller retour sur les aiguilles circulaires ? En vous remerciant , V Lion .

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 10:29:

Bonjour Mme Lion, en taille L, on diminue d'abord tous les 2 rangs puis 4 fois tous les rangs. Quand vous avez mis les mailles de l'encolure en attente, continuez en allers et retours sur l'aiguille circulaire en rabattant les mailles pour l'encolure au début de chaque rang de chaque côté. Bon tricot!

Lion 24.01.2016 - 16:06:

RE bonjour, d'autre part, s'il faut diminuer tous les nombres pairs de rangs , toutes les diminutions se feront toutes à l'endroit ou toutes à l'envers ?????? Cordialement , V Lion .

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 12:21:

Bonjour Mme Lion, on diminue d'abord tous les 2 rangs puis tous les rangs (sauf en taille S), on aura ainsi: d'abord 1 tour/rang avec dim (sur l'endroit) et 1 tour/rang sans diminution (sur l'envers), puis on diminuera tous les tours/rangs (= sur l'endroit et sur l'envers). Bon tricot!

Lion 24.01.2016 - 16:00:

Bonjour , je me permets de vous écrire car je ne comprends pas la phrase pour les diminutions : diminuer de chaque côté des 3 m envers , 2 m pour le dos et 1 pour la manche ??????? Ainsi que pour l'encolure : je suppose que à partir des mailles mises en attente il faut tricoter en aller retour ???? En vous remerciant , V LION .

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 12:18:

Bonjour Mme Lion, vous placez vos marqueurs à chaque transition manche/dos/devant, quand on va diminuer, on aura 2 m env (sur le dos et le devant), marqueur, 1 m env (manche) ou vice-versa (1 m env (= manche), marqueur, 2 m env (dos/devant)). Après avoir mis les mailles de l'encolure en attente, on continue effectivement en allers et retours en continuant les diminutions du raglan comme avant. Bon tricot!

Lillian Enevoldsen 12.02.2015 - 11:05:

Jeg har strikket denne model i garn Paris. Super lækker. Nu kunne jeg godt tænke mig at strikke modellen i lidt tyndere garn f.eks Muskat eller lign. men hvilken? Eller er der en anden opskrift jeg evt. kan bruge? Kan dette lade sig gøre?

DROPS Design 12.02.2015 kl. 17:14:

Hej Lillian. Hvis du strikker i tyndere garn, saa aendrer strikkefastheden sig ogsaa - maalene vil aendre sig. Du kan eventuelt tilpasse mönstret, men du kan ogsaa se en af mönstrene her (bluser med raglan til gruppe B (bl.a. Muskat)), finde et lignende mönster og saa bruge striberne fra mönstret her?

Sandra Baines 12.08.2014 - 22:24:

Could you tell me where I need to place the markers in the 'Back and Front pieces' as the pattern just says "1 insert marking thread on each side" but does not say on each side of what. I'm sorry if I just have not read the pattern correctly but I have read it many times and cannot work it out. Many thanks in anticipation of you help. Sandra

DROPS Design 13.08.2014 kl. 11:03:

Dear Mrs Baines, the markers are for the sides, you should have same number of sts each side of both markers, eg first one at the beg of round, 2nd one when you have worked the half of the sts. Happy knitting!

Florence 12.07.2014 - 17:18:

Bonjour, je fais ce pull mais je vois pour les diminutions du raglan, dim 19 f tous les deux rangs, puis tous les 4 rangs, mais je ne sais pas combien de fois il faut diminuer tous les 4 rgs. merci

DROPS Design 14.07.2014 kl. 09:00:

Bonjour Florence, vous continuez tous les 4 rangs, et en même temps, à 51 cm, vous formez l'encolure. Quand toutes les diminutions raglan et encolure sont faites, il doit vous rester 78 m. Bon tricot!
