Cuando dicen aumentar 1 pt a cada lado, cinco veces cada 3,5 cm, si partiamos de 56 pts me parece que quedaran 66 pts y entonces ya no cuadra el resto de de aumentos y disminuciones. No acabo de entenderlo, gracias por su respuesta y ademas por los patrones que tienen que son estupendos y muy bien explicados. un saludo

Hola Mina! Pues efectivamente tienes razón. Parece que al editar la traducción nos saltamos una línea. Ahora está corregida y espero que puedas seguir con el patrón. Me alegro de que te guste DROPS.
