Bind off to shape the neckline each side at the beg of every row from mid front: 1 st 2 times each side.
When yoke measures 10-11-12 (13-14) cm [4”-4 3/8”-4¾” (5 1/8”-5½”)] dec all P3 between cables to P2 and K tog the 4 sts on each cable 2 by 2 = approx 43-49-55 (61-67) sts left on row.

Hallo, am Hals soll man immer aus 3 linksmaschen 2 machen. Es sind immer 8 Links Maschen zwischen den Zöpfen. Wenn ich aus drei linksmasvhen 2 machen soll, gehtvdas bei 8 m ja nur 2x. D. H. Ich habe dann statt 8 nur noch 6 linke Maschen. Am Ende habe ich aber viel mehr als 61 m auf der Nadel. Oder wie ist es richtig. ?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 17:31:

Liebe Jutta, nach der 1. Abnahmen haben Sie 247 M, dann nehmen Sie in jeder 8. Reihe x 2, in jeder 6. Reihe x 1 und in jeder 4. Reihe x 2 = 142 M sind dann übrig - dann werden 16 M + 2 Maschen für die Hals stillgelegt = 122 M dann werden die Maschen von A.1 zs gestrickt + die linke Maschen zs gestrikt = es bleiben ca 61 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jutta 05.09.2018 - 14:28:

Ab wo wird gemessen,(gleichzeitig nach 8-9-10-11-12cm) um die 8m für den Kragen stillzulegen?

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 14:40:

Liebe Juttta, diese 8-9-10-11-12 cm werden vom Anfang der Passe gemessen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jutta 05.09.2018 - 14:20:

Hallo, ich möchte den Kragen weglassen. Muss ich dann trotzdem 8m stilllegen oder kann ich einfach einfach in der Mitte für den Hals abketten , wie beschrieben und dann am Ende alles abketten?möchte nur diese pikotkante direkt an den Halsausschnitt dran häkeln. Würde mich freuen, wenn Soe mir da weiter helfen könnten.

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 14:39:

Liebe Jutta, wenn Sie diese 8 M nicht auf beiden Seiten stilllegen wird der Halsauschnitt die gleiche hinten und vorne sein. Die Abnahmen für den Halsausschnitt können Sie wie in der Anleitung arbeiten, und dann nur den Kragen anders stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mary 15.05.2018 - 00:27: https://www.garnstud ...

Is there another version of the instructions for the yoke? maybe some diagrams? i have read and reread the instruction and have knitted to the point of binding off for the neckline. I am so confused, and reading the comments and questions of other readers i am not alone. Please help. i think i may be ripping my garment apart.

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 08:48:

Dear Mary, you will slip the first 8 sts at the beg of next 2 rows on a st holder for neck (work these sts first and slip them on a st holder to avoid cutting the yarn), then continue binding off at the beg of every row on each side (= both from RS and WS): 1 st 2 times. Do not forget to continue the decrease as before. Happy knitting!

Rt 04.02.2018 - 20:25:

Strikker jakka og er kommet til fellinga på slutten der en setter masker på tråd. Står en skal strikke de to vrange mellom flettene sammen til en vrang. Men jeg har tre masker igjen. Var jo i utgangspunktet 8 masker mellom flettene og når en feller 5 ganger er det 3 masker igjen?

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 07:31:

Hei Rt. Det er nå lagt til en rettelse under bærestykket, (oppdatert 26.02.2018). mvh Drops design

Britta 05.11.2017 - 12:54:

Die angegebenen 200g Wolle für Größe 62/68 haben bei mir nicht ausgereicht. Ich habe 250g benötigt.

Britta 05.11.2017 - 12:49:

Beim Kragen soll man 10M. Inkl. Maschen auf dem Hilfsfaden aufnehmen. Steht der Kragen dann 2Maschen über der Blende über?

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 09:44:

Liebe Britta, diese 10 M sind die 8 stillgelten Maschen + 2 M (diese werden am Halsausschnitt aufgefassen, wo Sie 1 M 2 x abgekettet haben). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kerry Roberts 20.03.2017 - 21:47:

I have fitted as far as the yoke and added the sleeves, but the instructions which follow do not seem complete. There are no further instructions for what to do after it says AT THE SAME TIME

DROPS Design 21.03.2017 kl. 09:10:

Dear Mrs Roberts, Work first 1 row from RS over all sts on body and sleeves while at the same time decrease 0-4-6 (2-6) sts evenly (do not dec on front bands nor on cables). Then work next row from WS as explained (inc for cables worked on next row), then work 1st row with cables from RS. Work 1 row from WS then on next row from RS start to dec as explained under DECREASING TIP (see at the beg of the pattern) on every 8th row: 0-0-1 (2-3) times, on every 6th row: 1-2-2 (1-1) times and then on every 4th row: 4-3-2 (2-1) times - and do not forget to work neck at the same time. Happy knitting!

Knuddl 14.12.2016 - 19:46:

Ich verstehe den letzten Teil nicht. Man legt jeweils die ersten 8 Maschen auf einen Hilfsfaden, aber das ist dann ja mitten im Zopf? Heißt das man strickt diese Maschen dann nicht mehr für die restlichen Zentimeter und nimmt sie dann erst wieder auf für den Kragen? Und wo soll abgekettet werden? Dann hinter den Maschen, die auf dem Hilfsaden liegen? Wäre sehr dankbar für Hilfe, ich bin fast fertig und es ist so kalt, meine Tochter (3Monate) könnte die Jacke wirklich gut gebrauchen!

DROPS Design 15.12.2016 kl. 09:24:

Liebe Frau Knuddl, diese Maschen sind zuerst stillgelegt, dann nimmt man für den Hals ab. Wenn mann den Kragen später arbeitet werden diese Maschen aufgenommen (siehe KRAGEN). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Isabel 03.12.2016 - 20:40:

Na touca depois (para 3meses) refere que depois de 10cm numa carreira pelo avesso tricotar as malhas da trança duas a duas e depois diz na carreira seguinte pelo avesso rematar as primeiras 23 malhas. Não consigo fazer duas carreiras avesso seguidas. A seguir a carreira do avesso em que tricotei as malhas das tranças duas a duas como faço a carreira seguinte que é pelo direito?

DROPS Design 06.12.2016 kl. 11:41:

Bom dia, Efectivamente, tem razão. Vamos reportar ao departamento de estilismo para que verifiquem e façam as correcções necessárias. Obrigado em nome da DROPS
