For this Drops Pattern, I need to know how many yards, not meters, for the XXL size. Thank you. Name for it "Cap Sleeved Shrug"

Wonderful pattern! Made it myself, super easy and looks like a designer coat! I used burgundy red and it turns heads!

Hola. Estoy tejiendo este modelo en talla M y me gustaría hacerlo con manga larga. ¿Me podrían ayudar con las indicaciones? Muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 07.09.2015 kl. 10:52:

Hola Laura. Lo siento, no hacemos patrones personalizados. El chaleco tiene el canesú redondo- como sugerencia puedes mirar por ejemplo el modelo 158-27.

Helena 19.06.2013 - 13:01:

Hej! Jättesöt, men går det att få reda på plaggmåtten? Är en typisk mittemellan S och M person... Tack!

DROPS Design 20.06.2013 kl. 11:54:

Hej Helena. Se nederst paa maalskitsen hvilken störrelse passer dig bedst. Du kan eventuelt tilpasse modellen ved hjaelp af stickfastheten (antal m per 10 cm).

Hoi Jenny!Go to "hulp", "Forums", than to RAVELY. then give in: 108-40 in the Pattern-search (right side). This drops-pattern here will be shown to you. The good thing is, look at: Yarn Ideas" than to "ESKIM"O, there are 17 projects with this wool. Good luck, I will make this jacket too and I have only 550g. Perhaps is goes!?

DROPS Design NL 04.10.2010 - 10:26:

Hoi Jenny. Dit vind ik vreemd. Klopt de stekenverhouding wel? Dit is wel erg veel en wij hebben nog niet eerder opmerkingen over de gebruikte hoeveelheid garen voor dit patroon ontvangen? Ik zal wel uw opmerking doorsturen aan ons Design Team. Komen er meer reacties van deze soort, dan zullen zij het patroon uiteraard aanpassen. Gr. Tine

Grillaert Jenny 02.10.2010 - 13:55:

Ben dit model aan het breien met de juiste wol. Voor maat M staat evcchter maar 450 gr opgegeven. Heb 500 gr besteld, is nog niet af, en nu al geen wol meer. Maten komen nochtans goed overeen. Zelfs iets korter gemaakt. Opgave nodige wol is dus minsten 100 ngr te weinig!!!

Drops Design 17.11.2009 - 17:17:

Lynne, it refers to the charts.

Lynne 17.11.2009 - 02:52:

What does M.1A and M.1B mean?
