For right front please explain "bind off 1st each side at the beginning of each row on every 3.5cm" as i have increased every 8 rows and ended up with this section being 21 cm too long! Help!

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 10:28:

Dear Jayne, make sure to measure on the right side of piece and cast off every 3.5 cm a total of 14-15 times (see your size), beg when piece measures 33-38 cm, you should work for 45.5-49 cm to get a total length of approx. 78-88 cm. Happy knitting!

I can't work out how many 50g balls I need for the medium size

DROPS Design 28.08.2015 kl. 14:55:

Dear Gillian, you will find at the right side of the picture under tab "materials" total weight of yarn required for each size, ie for a size M you need there 350 g DROPS Lin / 50 g a ball = 7 balls. DROPS Lin is now discontinued - please click on the link and here for alternatives and calculate required yarn. Happy knitting!

Przejrzysty i zrozumiały również dla początkujących opis wykonania. Dziękuję i tak trzymać!

Solange 16.05.2015 - 01:06:

Hi, I really like this pattern but would prefer if it was longer in the back. Can I just add rows until I reach the length I want, and in that case do I have to add the same number of rows for the fronts as I do not want this to be too long at the front. Thanks for your reply.

DROPS Design 16.05.2015 kl. 09:55:

Dear Solange, if you add more rows to the back, adapt pattern for front pieces casting on more sts (front pieces are worked sideways, starting from the side towards seam to back piece and finishing on the "tip" (see arrows in measurement charts). Happy knitting!

Błąd w opisie tyłu - po odjęciu oczek jest: "= 50-52-54-56-58 o. " a powinno być "= 50-52-52-54-56-58 o. " TYŁ: Na wys. 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm od dołu robótki zamknąć na podkroje rękawów z każdej strony, na pocz. każdego rzędu: 1 raz 3 o., 1-1-2-3-4-5 razy 2 o. i 0-1-2-2-2-3 razy 1 o. = 50-52-54-56-58 o.

Zgadza się. Dziękuję za zwrócenie uwagi. Wzór na stronie został już poprawiony. Pozdrawiam

Susan Carroll 17.09.2014 - 15:06:

I'm having a difficult time with the left front of this pattern. Did anyone write out the instructions for the left front? I guess I'm having a hard time with "mirrored".

DROPS Design 17.09.2014 kl. 16:46:

Dear Mrs Caroll, to work left front piece mirrored, you will work as right front piece but when cast on at the end of row from RS, you will cast on at the end of row from WS and so on. Do not hesitate to contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further assistance. Happy knitting!

Når arb måler 20-20-21-22-23-24 cm (målt i højre side af arb. Forstår ikke den "lap" som kommer frem. Jeg ved godt at forstykket strikkes på tværs, men hvad skal den lappen. På tegningen vises det som det som henger længst ned.

DROPS Design 19.02.2014 kl. 14:30:

Hej Karen. Det er underkanten af forstykket. Herfra tager du ind og strikker det löse stykke som du kan lade haenge/drapere. Du kan se det paa det förste billede paa det venstre forstykke (som er draperet over höjre skulder paa modellen).

Brigitte 15.02.2014 - 21:42:

Bonjour, je suis debutante et comme la laine drops lin n'existe plus ,je voudrai tricoter ce modèle avec drops muskat ; je voudrai savoir combien de pelotes il me faudrait pour la taille M ainsi que le numero des aiguilles. merci

DROPS Design 17.02.2014 kl. 09:35:

Bonjour Brigitte, à l'aide du tableau de nos fils à tricoter et de ces informations, vous pourrez calculer combien il vous faudra en Muskat. N'hésitez pas à demander conseil à votre magasin DROPS. Bon tricot!

Margriet 10.02.2014 - 14:42:

Heb ik met Drops Muskat (50g=100m) voor maat S voldoende aan 8 bollen ? (De Lin was nl 50g=120m) en op de afbeelding zie ik gaatjes, het lijkt niet op tricotsteek. Is de afbeelding met een andere steek gebreid ?

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 16:59:

Hoi Margriet. Ja, dat zou genoeg moeten zijn (zie ook de berekening hier). Het vest is gebreid in tricotsteken, maar vrij losjes. Lin had ook een andere "structuur" dan Muskat, dus het resultaat kan anders zijn, maar brei zoals altijd een proeflapje voor de stekenverhouding en zie of het bevalt.
