Knitting tip: If gauge is incorrect in height and knitting is too tight the raglan decrease will be to short and armhole too small. Adjust this by knitting 1 extra round without dec every so often between decreases.

Cast on 25-25-30-35-35 sts loosely on double pointed needles size 7 mm / US 10½ with 1 strand of each color (= 3 strands) and K1 round.
Continue in Rib until piece measures 5-5-6-7-7 cm / 2"-2"-2½"-2 3/4".
Continue in stockinette sts at the same time as adjusting sts number to 28-28-30-34-34 on 1st round after Rib.
When piece measures 15 cm / 6'' inc 2 sts mid under sleeve, repeat inc on every 3-3-3.5-4.5-4 cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/4"-1 3/4"-1½" a total of 7-8-8-7-8 times = 42-44-46-48-50 sts.
When piece measures 34-38-42-44-46 cm / 13 3/8"-15"-16½"-17 1/4"-18" bind off 6 sts mid under arm = 36-38-40-42-44 sts.

Quels autres couleurs de fils Alpaca pourraient s'assortir en bleu? et non en rose. Merci.

Bonjour Mme Fenninger, il existe différentes nuances de bleu en Alpaca, en Safran et DROPS loves you 6 - n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS il pourra vous conseiller, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Ik wil graag de meidentrui met raglanmouwen breien. Uiteraard moet er een boord worden gebreid. In het patroon wordt aangegeven "zie de beschrijving hierboven" - er is echter geen beschrijving. Zou u mij kunnen vertellen of de boord 2 recht / 2 averecht is of 2 recht/ 3 averecht. De hals moet namelijk op dezelfde manier. Alvast bedankt voor de moeite. Vriendelijke groet, Gea Hooge

Hoi Gea. Ik heb even vergeleken met het originele patroon en er miste een stuk van het patroon. Ik zal dat nu toevoegen en je kan aan de slag met het patroon. Veel plezier

Dejlig med en enkel model uden dikkedarer, dén har vi ventet på!
