Thanks so much for the advice about short rows. Before I saw your answer, I searched ---and short rows was the answer. Your response confirms...and I've frogged back...and now it's looking more even with the short rows. Wonder why this isn't recommended in the pattern?!!

Lisa 14.04.2016 - 16:17:

Hi - I'm loving this pattern. However, I'm noticing the garter stitch edge makes the fabric 'pull up'. It seems to be tighter than stockinette stitch. Is there some tip to remedy this, so the garter stitch part of the fabric is the same size/length as the stockinette part of the fabric?

DROPS Design 14.04.2016 kl. 18:20:

Dear Lisa, you can work some short rows about the front band sts in garter st evenly spaced in height to keep same height and avoid that these sts contract work in height. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, Est-il compliqué de faire des manches longues pour cette veste ? A partir d'un autre modèle peut-être ? Combien dois-je compter de fourniture en sus ? Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 27.11.2015 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Globeuse, vous pouvez effectivement vous aider d'un modèle similaire dans le même groupe de fils pour allonger les manches. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider et vous conseiller, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Mizourin 30.04.2013 - 20:17:

J'ai suivi les explications pour ce gilet taille M. Pour les manches, les diminutions ne correspondent pas ni au dessin, ni à l'assemblage.

DROPS Design 02.05.2013 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Madame Mizourin, les explications de la manche sont conforme au modèle original, aviez-vous pensé à vérifier votre tension ?

Josée Poulin 01.03.2012 - 22:22:

Il y a une erreur pour monter les pièces du devant. Selon le modèle anglais, pour la taille xxxl : encolure = 7 x 1m tous les 2 rgs, 5 x 1m tous les 4 rngs et 4 x 1m tous les 6 rgs

DROPS Design 02.03.2012 kl. 10:38:

Merci Josée, les explications ont été corrigées. Il faut effectivement diminuer 5 fois 1 m tous les 4 rangs pour toutes les tailles. Bon tricot !

Hej, eftersom du skall maska av vart annat varv på varje sida så blir det rätsidan på ena och avigsidan på andra. Lycka till!

Ingegerd Davide 22.03.2010 - 17:12:

När jag skall avmaska för ärmkullen skall jag då maska av varje rät varv och varje avigt varv. Om jag inte gör det så blir det ju två varv mellan varje avmaskning dvs minska på rät resp avigan och sedan sticka 2 varv ytterligare innan ny avmaskning från rätsidan?

Det er en flot og spændende hjemmeside I har. Ærger mig over, at jeg ikke har set den før. Men nu glæder jeg mig til at strikke efter jeres meget forståelige opskrifter.

Christine 07.09.2008 - 16:36:

Bonjour ,et merci pour tous vos modèles ! Je vais tricoter celui-ci en coton,et ensuite un petit haut assorti .

Eva 20.02.2008 - 10:28: www.sweetpea16.wordp ...
