Continue in stockinette st with 6 garter sts each side for front bands. At the same time on first row from RS inc 1st on each side of all markers – see Increasing tip – and repeat the inc on every other row another 5-7-9-11 times, then on every 4th row a total of 7-7-7-7 times = 340-380-420-460 sts. Remember the knitting gauge!
Buttonholes: At the same time when piece measures 8 cm [3 1/8’’] bind off for buttonholes on right front band – see above.
When piece measures approx 40-42-44-46 cm [15¾”-16½”-17¼”-18”] (adjust so that next row is from WS) bind off for 4 holes for belt as follows:

Se non volessi utilizzare due tipi di filato ma solo uno, quale mi c onsigliereste? Grazie

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 08:26:

Buongiorno Alessia. Potrebbe sostituire i due filati con il filato Melody che ha lo stesso spessore dei due filati suggeriti e lavorati insieme. Buon lavoro!

Yvonne De Graaf 11.09.2015 - 10:00:

Bij het rechter voorpand staat aan het einde: Kant de st af bij een totale hoogte van in mijn geval 76 cm aan het middenvoor. Ik begrijp niet wat ze daar mee bedoelen, met aan het middenvoor. Misschien dat jullie het mij duidelijk kunnen maken. Vast bedankt.

DROPS Design 11.09.2015 kl. 13:41:

Hoi Yvonne. Middenvoor = rand langs de voorkant (bies) van het voorpand. Je meet dus hier.

Yvonne De Graaf 14.06.2015 - 22:46:

Bij alinea Cape, en Lees a.u.b. het volgende stukje zorgvuldig door, moet je op een gegeven moment uitkomen op, in mijn geval, 380 steken. Maar als ik volgens het patroon ga meerderen kom ik er 20 tekort? Er moet dus ergens een paar naalden meer gebreid worden?

DROPS Design 15.06.2015 kl. 14:31:

Hoi Yvonne. Nogmaals een beetje onduidelijk in de vertaling helaas. Ik heb de tekst aangepast zodat hij past bij het Noorse origineel patroon en je eindigt op 380 steken (Je moet inderdaad nog een keer meerderen). Excuses voor het ongemak en nog veel breiplezier.

Yvonne De Graaf 14.06.2015 - 22:44:

In het begin bij het breien van de cape staat "en meerder tegelijkertijd 80 st in deze naald" Volgens mij moet er in het patroon staan meerder tot 80 steken.

DROPS Design 15.06.2015 kl. 14:28:

Hoi Yvonne. Je hebt gelijk. Ik zal het meteen aanpassen. Bedankt voor het melden.

Sophia 20.07.2013 - 12:59:

Ska man sticka både "kappa" och "bak-och framstycken" eller antingen det ena eller det andra? Om man ska göra allt, hur sätter man då ihop det?

DROPS Design 04.10.2013 kl. 10:12:

Du börjar sticka enligt "kappan" uppifrån och ner. Bara följ beskrivningen!

Mia 29.08.2008 - 13:38:

Likte ikke denne, den er hverken fugle eller fisk - og når skal man bruke den?

Corrie Avis 16.07.2008 - 09:13:

Wil ik heel graag maken. Ik hoop dat hij er snel op staat kan bijna niet wachten.

Geuens 24.06.2008 - 12:00:

Mooi Dit ga ik zeker eens breien

Majo 22.06.2008 - 23:40:

Vivette 22.06.2008 - 18:00:
