Vorrei sapere quanti punti misurano i pezzi davanti dove sono i bottoni . Grazie

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 11:32:

Buongiorno Tiziana. Il bordo dei bottoni viene lavorato riprendendo le maglie lungo il lato. In tutto il bordo è alto 9 cm. Per aprire le asole deve intracciare 2 maglie (per ogni asola). Al ferro successivo, avvia due nuove maglie sopra quelle intrecciate. Buon lavoro!

Nathalie Vergobbi 20.03.2018 - 17:06:

Bonjour, Je trouve cette veste très jolie ,la laine utilisée pour le modèle n'existe +,par quelle laine je peux la remplacer?.

DROPS Design 21.03.2018 kl. 08:51:

Bonjour Mme Vergobbi, vous trouverez ici comment remplacer Symphony (laine du groupe D). Bon tricot!

Jayne Sherwin 20.02.2018 - 18:23:

I would like to substitute the melody yarn for the symphony and notice the yardage is double. Meaning I only need half the amount. Is this correct?? Confused please help.

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 09:04:

Dear Mrs Sherwin, that's right, Symphony was 70 m for 50 g while Melody is 140 m for 50 g. Try our yarn converter to calculate new amount of yarn you need in your size. Happy knitting!

Kornelia Keller 21.04.2017 - 11:40:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, mich interessiert, ob die Größenangaben deutsche oder internationale Größen sind. Mit anderen Worten: ist die deutsche 42 eine M oder eine XL? Danke für Ihre Antwort und ein schönes Wochenende. K. Keller

DROPS Design 21.04.2017 kl. 11:51:

Liebe Frau Keller, am Ende der Seite finden Sie eine Maßskizze mit allen Maßen für jede Größe. Vergleichen Sie diese Maßen mit einer ähnliche Jacke, die Sie gerne haben, um die passende Größe zu finden. Hier lesen Sie mehr. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annette 02.02.2017 - 17:07:

The beginning says stockinette stitch 1st row is the Wrong side...does this mean I start with a purl row, or are there 4 rows of "reverse stockinette stitch" as the band and then switch to regular?

DROPS Design 03.02.2017 kl. 08:58:

Dear Annette, you are working first 4 rows in stocking st starting with P on 1st row (from WS) then K on 2nd row (RS), P on 3rd row and K on 4th row, then work 1 row K from WS and continue in stocking st: K from RS (on next row) and P from WS. Happy knitting!

Cindy Lyons 06.01.2016 - 00:22:

Hello, i love this pattern, and would like to knit it, however I cannot seem to find the "symphony" yarn. Is there another yarn that you recommend instead? Thank you for your guidance, Cindy

DROPS Design 06.01.2016 kl. 09:26:

Dear Cindy, Symphony is now discontinued, you can use Melody as an alternative. Happy knitting!

Maria 02.05.2013 - 14:22:

Ammiro molto i vostri modelli. posso riprodurre questa giacca in big merino o in nepal ? verrebbe bene ugualmente? grazie

DROPS Design 04.05.2013 kl. 11:39:

Buongiorno. Il filato suggerito consente di realizzare capi molto morbidi e leggeri. E' possibile usare i filati Nepal e Big Merino. Questi filati hanno però una consistenza maggiore e sono più compatti, pertanto il capo risulterebbe più "sostenuto". E' comunque importante che il campione corrisponda con quello indicato nel modello. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour Liva, pour les emmanchures, on a en taille S 64 m et on diminue : 1 fois 3 m (x 2 côtés) = 6 m puis 3 fois 1 m (x 2 côtés) = 6 m ; soit un total de 12 m, 64 -12 = 52 m.

Liva 14.11.2009 - 20:07:

Les diminutions pour l'emmanchure me pose problème:si je diminue de chaque cote 1-1-1-1-2 puis 2fois 3m,cela fait 24 m et non 12m, donc il me reste 64m-24m=40m et non 52m. Où me suis-je trompée?

Kimberly 17.05.2009 - 21:53:

Wow! Everything your designers create are things of beauty! I wish Americans had half your talent!
