Stephanie 22.08.2019 - 06:28:

In the sleeve instructions, regarding sleeve cap shaping: could you confirm “2 sets each side until piece measures....”. Decrease 2 stitches at beginning and end of every row?

DROPS Design 22.08.2019 kl. 09:41:

Dear Stephanie, you won't decrease 2 sts on each side but cast off 2 sts at the beginning of every row (= both from RS and from WS) until sleeve measures 57-60 cm. Happy knitting!

Stephanie 22.08.2019 - 06:23:

The shoulder shaping info for the sleeves is unclear. It would be helpful if the number of stitches remaining after cast off steps were indicated in the pattern.

DROPS Design 22.08.2019 kl. 09:48:

Dear Stephanie, did the previous answer help you? Depending on your tension in height, the number of remaining stitches will be different, that's the reason why there are any given, most important is the height of sleeve cap/sleeve. Happy knitting!

Cath 06.07.2018 - 16:39:

Bonjour j'ai commencé de tricoter le dos en taille L .Mon échantillon à 20 mailles donnait un petit 10 cm. Au niveau des cotes j'ai une largeur de 50cm comme sur le patron. Par contre à 5cm de hauteur ma largeur est de 54 cm. ma question: la largeur indiquée sur le patron est elle au niveau des cotes ou du jersey ?

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 07:37:

Bonjour Cath, après les côtes, on doit diminuer 18 m au 1er rang jersey = il reste 102 m soit environ 50 cm. Pensez à bien conserver la même tension que pour votre échantillon pour avoir les bonnes mesures finales indiquées, les côtes resserrent, raison pour laquelle il faut davantage de mailles. Bon tricot!

MILANO Antonia 23.11.2016 - 22:25:

Je suis entrain de tricoter le dos du modèle 114-9 en taille L. Je suis à 60cm de hauteur totale. Je suis à * tricoter au point mousse les 34m et les autres comme avant.... dois-je comprendre les 34 m centrales ? Merci pour ce joli modèle . En attente de votre aimable réponse.

DROPS Design 24.11.2016 kl. 09:51:

Bonjour Mme Milano, c'est tout à fait exact, le mot "centrales" a été ajouté. Bon tricot!

Ich hab diese Weste als Geburtstagsgeschenk für meine Schwiegermutter in dunkellila gemacht. Sie hat sich sehr gefreut und die Weste sieht toll aus und war auch nicht so schwierig zu stricken.

Bening 15.03.2016 - 08:42:

Hi, I'm a bit confused about how to dec the front band. The decreasing tip in the pattern said that we gotta do all the dec in RS. Then dec 1 st on every 4th row. How should I count those rows? Count every rs and ws or only the rs? Thank you

DROPS Design 15.03.2016 kl. 09:33:

Dear Mrs Bening, dec on next row from RS, then work 3 rows (= 1 WS row, 1 RS row and 1 WS row), on next row from RS dec again and repeat the dec like this every 4th row. Happy knitting!

Agneta 26.05.2015 - 10:18:

Tack för svar, men frågan kvarstår....avmaskning för armhål som på baksidan börjar ju med 2x4 maskor avmaskas = 8 sedan 2x9= 26 maskor..... Inte 18! Tacksam för hjälp!

DROPS Design 27.05.2015 kl. 10:00:

Hej. Det är 4 maskor inte 8 som det börjas med till ärmhål (8 är på bakstycke där det är 4 på varje sida). Det är de 4 maskorna jag skrev om här sist: "minskar 4 maskor, ökar 4 maskor, minskar senare 4 m " Sen avmaskas ytterligare 18 m (2m x 9 ggr) för ärmhål. Lycka till!

Agneta 23.05.2015 - 19:27:

Hej, jag får inte ihop antalet maskor som skall vara kvar efter avmaskning/minskning för armhål och hals på framstycket jag stickar storlek XL....tacksam för hjälp!

DROPS Design 25.05.2015 kl. 09:51:

Hej. Du lägger upp 79 m från början, minskar 13 och har då 66 m. Ökning och minskning i sidan som på bakstycket: minskar 4 maskor, ökar 4 maskor, minskar senare 4 m. När M.1 har stickats 1 gång så har det ökats 9 m. Maskantal nu är 71 m. Minskning till hals: 7+6+5 m. Minskning till ärmhål: 18 m. 71-18-18= 35 m. Lycka till!

Tiny 31.03.2015 - 19:52:

In het patroon gaandeweg 9 st. meerderen?? Betekent dat dat de omslagen voor die meerderingen zorgen? Dat is mij dan volstrekt onduidelijk geweest, ik heb die omslagen in de teruggaande toer weer samengebreid. Dát is balen! Betekent alles uithalen! Het zou beter zijn om in de tekst duidelijk te maken dat de omslagen voor stekenvermeerderingen dienen. Graag nog even antwoord of dit de oorzaak is, en toch bedankt voor het reageren.

DROPS Design 31.03.2015 kl. 20:38:

Het is inderdaad de oorzaak, heel vervelend nu je al zo ver bent! Maar het staat er echt, de uitleg voor het rondje is: 1 omsl tussen 2 st, brei in de volgende nld de omsl achter in de st. Er staat dus nergens dat deze steek samengebreid moest worden. Succes ermee!

Tiny 30.03.2015 - 22:28:

Ik ben in maat M aan het maken.

DROPS Design 31.03.2015 kl. 10:01:

Hallo Tiny, ik weet niet waar je een fout hebt gemaakt, maar het patroon klopt. Je hebt na de boord in Maat M 53 st en in patroon M.1 meerder je gaandeweg 9 st = 62 st. Voor het armsgat kant je in totaal 11 st af, dus 51 st over en voor de hals minder je 5, 6 en 5 st, dus 16 - dan houd je 35 st over. Succes!
