Patroon vest geeft aan,breien tot 32cm (mt.xl)en kant af 8 steken voor armsgaten.kijk ik op de tekening;daar staat tot armsgaten 60cm.Dit is wel een heel groot verschil ! Welk is nu de juiste afmeting....? Alvast bedankt.Mieke

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:17:

Hoi Mieke. 60 cm is de totale hoogte. 32 cm + 28 cm pas = 60 cm

Just finished making this jacket. I found that I have a ball of the light colour left over - I bought 3 as suggested. But I only just had enough to finish in the darker colour. Also the neckline was too wide for me so I had to undo it and decrease more stitches to get a good fit.

Inge 11.02.2013 - 20:48:

I just finished the cardigan and it looks great ! However, the lower board of the cardigan should be knitted with 3.5 because otherwise the boards folds the wrong way

Christiane Engelberg 19.02.2012 - 17:34:

Meine Frage bezieht sich auf die Abnahme der Passe. Wenn ich die Rundpasse stricke werden alles in allem 22 Maschen abgenommen. Wie komme ich aber dann auf ein Endergebnis von 133 Maschen (Gr. XL)? Das versthe ich nicht!?!? Es wäre schön, wenn ich dafür eine Erklärung bekommen könnte Christiane

DROPS Design 27.02.2012 kl. 13:06:

Pro rapport werden 12 Maschen abgenommen. Der Rapport wird 20 Mal wiederholt (373-240 = 133 Maschen).

Caroline 21.07.2009 - 12:20:

So beautiful, flattering, I would like to knit that myself!

Michelle 01.07.2009 - 21:41:

Sød model, der trods stilen virker let.

Nettan 13.06.2009 - 20:56:

Snygg, men varför inte vanliga långa ärmar?

Danielle 13.06.2009 - 15:38:

Encore un beau modèle !

Rita Klevjer 09.06.2009 - 01:19:

Fint med rundfelling på kofte-jakker,

Anneke Franssen 07.06.2009 - 19:05:

Mooi vest met die ronde pas. Ik zou er trouwens wel lange mouwen in maken.
