I'm having issues making the pockets. any suggestions?

Dear Jennifer, the video below should help you to vizualize how to work the pockets. Happy knitting!

Jeg har strikket denne - og den er rigtig dejlig, men jeg kunne ønske at kraven var større - den "forsvinder" i den store jakke. Og så skal man passe på ikke strikke for meget - den bliver mega-lang ved brug. Jeg kan ikke nå lommerne!

Nein sie können nur Wollder der Garngruppe B verwenden (Classic Alpaca, Cotton Light, Karisma, Lin, Merino Extra Fine, Muskat)

Monika 04.05.2010 - 21:09:

Das Modell wird mit Nadel 5 gestrickt. Kann ich dafür auch 2 Fäden Fabel verwenden?

Drops Design 23.03.2010 - 09:21:

Oui Charlotte c'est tout à fait ça, il faut la plier en double et coudre les côtés de la poche.

Charlotte 22.03.2010 - 18:36:

Il faut donc bien plier la poche en 2 pour faire une poche de 12,5cm de hauteur, c'est ça ? et ensuite coudre les côtés au devant...? Merci pour votre première réponse ultra rapide !

Drops Design 22.03.2010 - 10:43:

Bonjour Charlotte, les poches se cousent à l'intérieur de la veste, il faut coudre les 2 côtés de chaque poche sur le devant, sur l'envers, de façon invisible sur l'endroit.

Charlotte 22.03.2010 - 10:35:

Je ne comprends pas comment coudre les poches: "Assembler les 2 côtés de la poche et coudre sur l'envers de la veste." Il faut plier la poche en deux ? Faut-il assembler la poche avec le devant ?

Bel modello che avrò piacere di realizzare per me stessa nei prossimi mesi

Anja 17.01.2008 - 20:36:

Bekväm användbar snygg, den vill jag göra. Varför så få röster färg o knappar kan man ju ändra. Jag tror den är riktigt fin när man ser den i verkligheten. Dessutom har den fickor vilket är sååå praktiskt. Önskar fler fickor i mönstren.
