Hej! Jag håller på med koftan och ska precis göra första armen. Är det meningen att de ska stickas runt på strumpstickor eller fram och tillbaka? Det står att man ska sticka rätstickning de första 6 varven.

Hej Annelie, Ärmen stickar du runt på strumpstickor! Lycka till !

Sarah 14.12.2012 - 16:51:

Hallo. Ik heb een vraag over de volgende zin: 'Kant daarbij af voor het armsgat aan de zijkant 2 st x 1-1-1-1-2 en 1 st x 2-3-4-5-5 in elke 2e nld = 24-27-29-32-34 st.' (bij de voorpanden) niet. Als ik de grootste maat brei, betekent dat in de 2 naald 3 st, 2 naalden verder weer 3, dan 1, en nog twee keer 1? Alvast bedankt, ook voor de mooie patronen!

DROPS Design 15.12.2012 kl. 17:21:

Voor de grootste maat moet je dan afkanten: 2 keer 2 st en 5 keer 1 st aan beide kanten. Er zijn 5 maten en u breit de grootste maat - laatste getallen. De kleinste maat (1/3 mnd) is dan de eerste getallen (= 1 keer 2 st en 2 keer 1 st).

Renate, there has been some sentences missing in the English translation, we have now added them, so please print the pattern again. Thank you so much for letting us know!

Renata 14.05.2010 - 20:32:

I am working on the hat. I have 50 stitches. Then the pattern says "Knit 1 cm and dec 9-9-9-18-18 sts evenly = 9-9-9-18" I had 50 stitches, I decreased 9 stitches, that should equal 41 stitches not 9 stitches. Am I supposed to knit 3 more cm and then pull the thread through 41 stitches or keep decreasing 9 stitches every 1 cm for 3 cm and then pull the thread through the remaining 14 stitches? How should I be left with 9 stitches? Thank you, Renata

After hat is knitted there shall be an edge in garter around the bottom edge. Could be done on double pointed needles or described first along front edge and then along back edge on straight needles. After this edge is knitted you embroider the button stitches along the edge. There are not mentioned any buttons.

Mary 14.12.2008 - 23:04:

Im finishing hat. Totally confused on asembly and where to do the 6 row knit/ inside the hat or on the edge and on pic I dont see a button etc...plz help , thnks Mary

DROPS Design 19.11.2008 - 06:03:

You are working the sleeve in the round, so you can't inc each side, so when the patter says mid under arm, it means you inc on the inside of the sleeve - mid under.

Mary 19.11.2008 - 05:33:

Hello Im working on this pattern. I am doing sleeve and dont understand the part saying 'inc mid' ... Im thinking it is just an increase but is it in the middle of the row or on the sides? Thnks ! Mary
