Dank voor je info Ik heb het dus precies andersom gedaan en ben al een stukje opweg Als ik het goed gelezen heb maakt het in dit geval niets uit toch? Groetjes Herma

Hallo Herma, Het hangt er vanaf aan welke kant je de overslag wilt hebben. Als je volgens patroon breit, dan komt de rechterkant van de V-hals boven de linkerkant, maar je kan het natuurlijk ook andersom doen. Wat je maar wilt...

Hoi Herma, Als er in de beschrijving gesproken wordt over rechter- of linkerkant, wordt daar altijd mee bedoeld wanneer het kledingstuk gedragen wordt.

MH 17.06.2015 - 08:20:

I love this pattern, too, and actually started to knit it, but stopped because there is something not right with the English instructions. There weren't enough rows before the underarm curves into the sleeve. Would you please recheck the instructions?

DROPS Design 17.06.2015 kl. 10:00:

Dear MH, pattern does includes the new sts cast on for sleeve when piece measures 33-38 cm: 3 sts 2-0-1-1-2-3 times, 4 sts 1-3-2-2-2-2 times, 6 sts 2-3-3-4-3-2 times and 9 sts 4-3-3-2-2-2 times on each side for back piece or on the side for each front piece. Happy knitting!
