I question this instruction for the beret: At the same time when the work measures 4 cm [1½’’] inc. 1 st each side of the all the MT on every other row a total of 5 times = 114-120 sts Shouldn't it be only one side of each MT, 5 times for a total increase of 30 stitches?

Dear Mrs Hayden, you are correct, dec has to be done on left side of each marker - pattern has been corrected. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Modellen kommer med, den är bara inte färdig ännu. Det är först i början på augusti som alla modeller är klara och ligger ute. Vi jobbar på - håll ut :-)

Marie 07.07.2007 - 00:38:

Den här ville jag sticka men den kom ju inte med inte häller den i vårkollektionen som var lik denna utan ärmar båda stickades i Angora Tweed. Varför? Jag hoppas verkligen att de två kommer som extra mönster. KLAR MISS tycker jag.

Maria 05.07.2007 - 22:47:

Trøjen ser virkelig dejlig ud. Og pæn.

Ma 22.06.2007 - 21:01:

Mycket fin. Hoppas den kommer ut på nätet.

Ulrika 19.06.2007 - 11:12:

Gillar de ribbade detaljerna och den lilla balongeffekten på ärmen, detta gör modellen speciell. Gillar också Angora-Tweed, hoppas det kommer fler färger

Mia 10.06.2007 - 22:35:

Jag väntar fortfarande på vårens mönster med västen stickad i Angora-Tweed. Den här modellen var också mycket fin.

Malou 08.06.2007 - 21:18:

Jättesnygg, den kommer jag att sticka. Påminner lite om den lila västen i vårkollektionen i samma garn.
