Ik zou over de mouw willen adviseren om eerst het midden van je mouw de te bepalen en dan terug te rekenen waar je je steken moet minderen in de eerst nld r. na de boordsteek. Bij maat M heb ik direct aan het begin 2 steek geminderd en daarna aan het einde 2 steek. Vervolgens heb ik de 1ste 2 steek van de volgende rond op de laatste nld gezet zodat je aan beide kanten 28 steek voor de 4 r-4av-4r hebt. Ik hoop dat dit anderen kan helpen.

Thank you for the free pattern. It is truly a very nice design with lots of different challenges. I am now nearly finish with the long sleeved version of the cardi, but would advise the translator to use someone with knitting experience in English to validate the pattern. I am sure that it will sort out a lot of small problems re stitches left on needles, etc.

Rosy 09.08.2014 - 19:04:

Bonjour : je souhaiterais tricoter ce modèle, sans manches. Pensez-vous que ce soit possible, sans rien modifier au niveau des emmanchures ? Merci !

DROPS Design 12.08.2014 kl. 11:26:

Bonjour Rosy, c'est effectivement possible, vérifiez la hauteur d'emmanchures sur un vêtement analogue que vous avez - et terminez par exemple par une petite bordure (côtes, point mousse) autour des emmanchures. Bon tricot!

W. Bossers 24.02.2014 - 21:04: www.garnstudio.nl

Goedenavond, Ik brei het vestje in maat L met de korte mouw. Voor de mouw heb ik zoals opgegeven 72 steken opgezet. Boven de boord moeten 30 st. av dan 4r. 4 av. 4r. dan weer 30 st. av. Dit is totaal wel de 72 steken maar het komt niet uit boven de 4r., 4 av., 4 r. van de boord. Het zou na 28 of 32 st. moeten een veelvoud van 4. Maar dan zitten de 12 st. niet in het midden en klopt het niet met de overgebleven st. Hoe los ik dit op ? Met vr. gr., W. Bossers

DROPS Design 07.03.2014 kl. 12:42:

Hoi W. Bossers. Zo loopt het inderdaad niet door. Je kan voor de boord de naald beginnen met 2 r dan komt het uit: 2 r, 4 av, (4 r, 4 av) 3 keer = 30 st en dan 4 r, 4 av, 4 r in het midden enz. en ze eindigt dan met 2 r. zodat er onder de mouw 2 r naast 2 r komt.

Anne Loveday 01.10.2012 - 16:48:

I could not understand the sleeve instructions. Are you supposed to use 4 needles? Some of the instructions are not clear e.g. at the same time as the numbers of sts adjusts to 50-52-54-56-58-60 (64-68-72-76-80-84) sts. And the next instruction - are you supposed to still P all the sts which you K on the previous row? And further on, what does in each side mean? And what does inc 2 sts 'mid under' mean?

Susan Niezing 13.08.2011 - 13:25:

Is het mogenlijk de maten aan te geven hoe ik de mouwen op 2 naalden brei ik vind rondbreinaalden vreselijk. hartelijk dank susan

Hello, There is an abbreviation on the first line of the right side that says, "inkl". Does this mean "includes?" Thank you!
