My highest compliments to you and to the entire DROPS team - not just for this pattern but for your entire website. Your designs are beautiful and your related services are impeccable. You have my highest admiration. Tusen takk, Barbara

Barbara 27.04.2014 - 01:45:

I am unclear about the instructions for the sleeve cap shaping for the Large size. The instructions state that I should bind off each side at the beg of every row 2 sts 4 times. Is that a total of 8 sts or 16 sts bound off? Then that I am to bind off 1 st 2 times. Is that a total of 2 or 4 sts? Thank you.

DROPS Design 28.04.2014 kl. 10:12:

Dear Barbara, you cast off 4 times 2 sts at the beg of every row each side, i.e. you cast off 2 sts every other row each side (= 16 sts bound off, 8 each side), then 2 times 1 st each side (2 sts each side = 4 sts in total), then 2 sts each side until sleeve measures 56 cm. Happy knitting!

Barbara 10.04.2014 - 19:17:

My stitch gauge is correct but my row gauge is very different than the one given in the pattern. (i'm getting 34 rows per 10 cm not the 25 given in the pattern.) Are you certain that the pattern row gauge is correct? I know how to correct/make adjustments for my pattern gauge difference but first I need to be certain that the row gauge in the instructions is correct. Please let me know.

DROPS Design 11.04.2014 kl. 08:46:

Dear Barbara, gauge is correct, you may easily adjust in height, but may require more yarn as indicated in the pattern. Happy knitting!

Bonjour Isabelle, l'encolure dos manquait effectivement, elle a été ajoutée, merci.

Isabelle 19.10.2010 - 10:26:

Je pense qu'il manque une explication pour les diminutions de l'encolure dos!

DROPS Design 18.09.2008 - 21:02:

Usually we like to have 19-20 sts on 4" when we knit with AngoraTweed. We would not want 21-24 sts as listed for DK, that would too tight and not comfortable. To get 19-20 sts you need to use needle size 4 - 4.5 mm.

Sharon Ford 18.09.2008 - 19:20:

Sorry to bother you again, but this yarn is shown as worsted weight yet it uses a 6 which is normally a DK weight. Did I misunderstand the weight of it? Is it worsted weight or DK weight?

Sharon 17.09.2008 - 21:55:

Well what a dummy I am!! Trifocals and I still can't see!! Thanks so much. Really appreciate the inches shown everywhere! I am, obviously, mathmatically challenged!! :)

DROPS Design 17.09.2008 - 21:07:

The finished measures is written in inch at the top of the us pattern. The measures in the chart is in cm. The numbers across the bust in the chart is measure in cm from side to side.

Sharon Ford 17.09.2008 - 20:56:

I love this pattern. How can I tell the chest size, is it the numbers on the schematic or the numbers on top of it?
