Has anyone tried this pattern with another yarn? I am thinking of knitting it with big merino, but I don't know if it will work with the knitting tension etc...

Hi Linde. Maybe you can try to make a sample and wash it and see how it reacts. Then you know for sure. Beste Linde. Je kan proberen om een proeflapje te breien en wassen, dan heb je een betrouwbare zekerheid van hoe het garen reageert.

I like

The K 6 rows are only at the beg, you repeat *-* over the back piece.

Denise 21.02.2010 - 03:19:

I just began this pattern and I am trying to understand the short row shaping for the lower back. The instructions say: Shortened rows on back piece: First row = RS. K 6 rows on all sts, * K 25-28-29-31-33-35 sts, turn piece, tighten thread and K return row, K 12 rows on all sts *, repeat from *-*, i.e. 1 repeat = 14 rows at one side (at bottom) and 12 rows at the other side (at top). Now, once I have completed the second repeat, do I start over at the beginning by knitting the six rows?

Nei det får bra. Bare strick glatt og vreng ettepå

Camilla 08.06.2009 - 20:02:

I oppskriften står det at armene skal ha vrangen ut. kan jeg da strikke rettstrikk, for så å vrenge armen tilslutt? Har det noe å si for resultatet?

Drops Design 03.06.2009 - 13:01:

Ved venstre forstk starter du med vendinger fra starten mes på høyre forstk strikker du først 1 p rett over alle m.

Camilla 02.06.2009 - 21:26:

Skal høyre forstykke være speilvendt til venstre med tanke på "stripene" mellom hver rapport i nedre del? Hvis så, så blir det ikke slik når jeg strikker etter oppskriften, da blir "baksiden" utover. Noen forklaring på dette?

So simple, so pretty! Must DO!
