Hallo! Was, bitte bedeutet „2 verschränkt re. zusammen du 2 M. Krausrippe”? Das steht bei der Anleitung für den Träger im vorletzten Satz. Bitte um Hilfe! Danke, liebe Grüße!

DROPS Design 15.02.2019 kl. 08:36:

Liebe Claudi, es ist hier nur kleine Typo, es sollte "und" sein, dh Sie stricken 2 verschränkte Maschen zusammen und enden mit 2 M Krausrippe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Goede middag. Ik brei met garen naald 4. Maat xxl (borstomvang 105cm). Hoe breed is het pand op het punt dat je op 38 cm hoogte 10 steken moet gaan meerderen? M.vr.gr. Mirjam

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 19:02:

Hallo Mirjam, Uitgaande van de stekenverhouding van het patroon (19 st. = 10 cm) en 194 steken op de naald, kom je op dat punt op een breedte van 51 cm (omtrek 102 cm).

For the S size: just 50 g (not 100 g) of Paris petrol and 300 g (not 450 g!) of Paris white were necessary. The measures for the tunic are perfect. The straps need to be 18 cm apart (not 22) (internal edge) both at the back and front. The best way to attach the straps is to make the correct number of sts for each strap with the crochet on the bound off brim of the tunic, so that you don't have to make any sewing in this model (apart from the buttons).

Qual è il modo migliore per cucire le bretelle al top? Grazie!

DROPS Design 07.03.2017 kl. 20:59:

Buonasera Sara, per avere una cucitura piatta, può attaccare le bretelle prendendo solo il filo più esterno delle maglie. Buon lavoro!

Sara 27.02.2017 - 10:03:

Il filo blu va tagliato ogni volta alla fine dei due giri, oppure no? Se no, qual è il metodo migliore? Grazie.

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 10:18:

Buongiorno Sara. Può incrociare i fili all’inizio del giro, così il filo del colore che non usa segue il lavoro in verticale. Trova un esempio nel video sotto (al secondo 0:25 circa), anche se in questo caso la lavorazione è su ferri dritti e non in tondo. Nel suo caso, incrocerà i fili all’inizio del giro. Buon lavoro!

Hello I want to make the Goodbye Sailor vest/tank top; however, could you please confirm the sizing since there is a difference between the top of the written pattern size and the schematic bust measurements (last page). My bust is 37.5" Thanks

DROPS Design 04.03.2016 kl. 10:48:

Dear Mrs Miller, the measurement chart shows all measurements taken flat from side to side, in cm, ie 70 cm around (= 35x2) / 27½" (= 13"3/4) - read more here. Happy knitting!

Bettina 15.07.2013 - 12:02:

In der Anleitung steht, Maschen zunehmen !!. Aber es wird minus gerechnet, was ja auch richtig ist, laut Diagramm. Was stimmt denn nun ?? Bitte überprüft das mal.

DROPS Design 15.07.2013 kl. 16:18:

Liebe Bettina, genau, es wird abgenommen. Danke für den Hinweis.

We are publishing a measure chart with each design. There you see the actual garments finished measures. So to figure out which size to make, the best is to measure a garment you already have and like the size of and then compare with the chart. The measures in the chart is in cm and measured from side to side.

Yuliana 10.11.2008 - 07:35:

Hi, I would like to try your pattern for the first time. my bust measurement in round is 81 inch. usually I will be in Small or Medium size but when I matched it with your measurement I was in category Large. Or I did measurement wrongly? I don't want end-up knit a very large dress which I can't wear. You measurement (in cm) as described at your chart is only for one side measurement, am I right? Thank you for explanation and looking forward your reply
