Mein Parson Russell Terrier hat die Maße für "M" Da sie aber Spaniel schreiben kann ihm dass mit seinen 8 kg doch nicht passen. LG Irene

Liebe Frau Ruck, Spaniel ist hier als Beispiel geschrieben, schauen Sie mal die Maßnahmen für jede Größe (siehe Brustumfang und Rückenlänge) um die richtige Größe zu finden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Wie nehme ich beidseitig 3M.total9mal ab

DROPS Design 24.01.2017 kl. 09:55:

Liebe Ines, hier werden Sie 3 M am Anfang der Reihe abketten, bis zur Ende der Reihe stricken, wenden, und 3 M am Anfang der nächste Reihe abketten, bis zur Ende der Reihe stricken, wenden; Diese 2 Reihe sollen Sie dann insgesamt 3 M wiederholen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

The medium size is a bit too small for my dog. How can I size this pattern up to what would be a large? Her chest width is 28". Thank you! Love the pattern, love the yarn (yes, I bought extra "Alaska".

Dear Mrs Post, DROPS 0-835 is available in size L, with a chest width of 23½"/26", it may be more suitable for your dog ? 2 strands group A = 1 strand group C in tension, just check amount of yarn. Happy knitting!

Under coat-5th row says to put 16 sts. On holder. I presume that,s for 1 leg opening. What do you do for the other leg..

DROPS Design 11.01.2013 kl. 19:08:

Dear Mrs Sarney, the 16 sts (2nd size) put on the st holder are for stomach part (= bottom ppiece) and are worked back when top piece (back piece) is done. Happy knitting!
