How is it possible to go from a size 6 needle to a size 1 needle without adding any sts? It says to cast on xxx sts on size 6 and then change to size 1 in rib with no adding. Am I missing something or is something left out? Thanks.

Dear Barbara, you first work with needle size 6 until piece measues 16 1/8’’-16½’’-17’’-17¼’’-17¾’’-17 ¾", then continue in rib with needle size 1, this will make the top of tunic (yoke). Happy knitting!

BEATRICE 23.08.2013 - 12:02:

Bonjour, j'ai fait ce modèle qui est facile a faire mais une fois fini j'ai été déçue...Les diminutions seraient plus appropriées que des côtes 1/1 car les cotes lâches donc ça baille

DROPS Design 23.08.2013 kl. 16:36:

Bonjour Béatrice, si vos diminutions sont trop lâches, pourquoi ne pas faire une bordure au crochet tout autour des emmanchures et de l'encolure pour resserrer ? Bon tricot!

Einfach wunderbar ist dieses Stück geworden. Muß zugeben ich habe noch einen kurzen Ärmel rangestrickt. Ist toll geworden so das ich mir ein zweites gestrickt habe. Nicht nur für den Sommer auch für den Übergang ist es super.!!!!!

Jacqueline 25.05.2009 - 22:31:

Einfach toll, sogar in meiner Großen Größe.. Bin gerade dabei es zu stricken. Freue mich schon darauf, wenn es fertig ist und ich es zum ersten mal trage.

Darlly 09.04.2009 - 02:22:

Fabulous for summer!

Silke 20.03.2009 - 21:25:

Richtig süüüüüss! Ich fang mal gleich an, es zu nadeln. Dann ist´s gewiss für den Sommer fertig.

Liisa 09.03.2009 - 22:36:

Wow! This looks great. Can't wait to get my hands on the pattern.

Drops Design 09.02.2009 - 21:00:

Yes you can use straight needles, but we used circular ince you cast on such a large number of sts that it can be very tight to fit them all.

Bonnie 09.02.2009 - 20:36:

Can I knit this top on straight needles? It is worked back and forth. Please let me know as I would like to start is soon. Thanks much. I love your website. Bonnie Walker
