Pouvez-vous me préciser les mensurations exactes (en cm) des manches longues dans la largeur et en taille M (au départ, au niveau de la flèche C, au bout des 58cm - 9cm ainsi qu'à la fin des 9cm. Merci. amc

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 13:24:

Bonjour Mme Albert-Giganon, nous n'avons pas ces mesures, mais si votre tension est correcte, vous devriez avoir les bonnes dimensions, comme dans le schéma, et comme sur la photo, ajusté à chaque taille. Bon tricot!

Patty Hayes 11.01.2019 - 02:55:

I am not understanding your sleeve decreases. I have followed your instructions to the point where you bind off to 16 1/8” then it says to bind off 4 stitches each side then bind off remaining stitches. The next line says piece should be appx 23 5/8”. This doesn’t add up. You only have 3 rows after the 16 1/8. Also, how many stitches are left to be bound off. Am I reading something wrong here. I would really appreciate your help with this Thank you Patty Hayes

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 09:32:

Dear Mrs Hayes, the 16 1/8" are measured from marker while the 23 5/8" are the total length of the sleeve. After work measures 16 1/8" from marker bind off 4 sts 1 time on each side then bind off remaining sts. The number of remaining sts may vary depending on your tension in height (= how many times you bind off 2 sts on each side). The measurements are here more important than the number of remaining sts. Happy knitting!

Corny 07.01.2019 - 13:19:

Hallo, vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort :-) Zum besseren Verständnis: ich hatte M2 so interpretiert, dass dort nur die Hinreihen angezeigt werden. In den Rückreihen habe ich die Maschen so gestrickt, wie sie kommen. Zeigt das Muster auch die Rückreihen? Fände ich etwas verwirrend, weil dann das Symbol X einmal eine rechte und einmal eine linke Masche darstellen würde. Herzliche Grüße, Corny

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 14:44:

Liebe Corny, also alle Reihen sind im Diagram gezeigt, 1 Kästchen = 1 Reihe x 1 Masche, so muss Ihr M.2 etwas weniger in der Höhe messen :) Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Cirny 05.01.2019 - 20:18:

Hallo, ich komme leider mit dem langen Ärmel in Größe M nicht weiter. Die Arbeit misst vom Anfang bis zum Einziehen des Markierungsfadens 31cm. Nach weiteren 31 cm vom Markierungsfaden, also in einer Höhe von insgesamt schon 62 cm, soll ich erst mit der Armkugel beginnen. Der gesamte Ärmel soll jedoch nur 58 cm messen. Könnten Sie bitte die Angaben und Maße in der Anleitung überprüfen und mir eine kurze Rückmeldung geben? Viele Grüße, Corny

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 10:54:

Liebe Corny, der Markierer ist nach M.2 eingesetzt (M.2 = 51 Reihe = ca 16 cm + die 7 ersten Reihen mit dünneren Nadeln), = ca 18 cm + 31 cm = ca 49 cm Begin der Armausschnitt. 18 cm + 39 cm = ca 57 cm: 4 M auf beiden Seiten abketten = ca 58 cm gesamte Länge. viel Spaß beim stricken!

DROPS Design 05.12.2018 kl. 15:22:

Bonjour Mr Duhamel, le 1er rang de M.1 se tricote sur l'endroit, donc le 3ème rang sera également sur l'endroit et vous augmenterez ainsi: 12 m end, 1 m env, 1 jeté, 4 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m env, 12 m end.

Evelyn Pinkham 08.11.2018 - 14:48:

So that I can knit this pattern, I tried to print it. But the entire pattern will not print (the edge is cut off, bottom of the page is overprinted by the cookies notice, etc.) . Can you please send it to me in a printable format (in American English), including the errata. I will be making the largest size.

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 15:45:

Dear Mrs Pinkham, clean your cache and try again - make sure to print all pages - try if necessary with A.4 format - It should work. Happy knitting!

Debora 12.07.2018 - 17:12:

Buongiorno ho fatto le diminuzioni alle maniche dagli scalfi in su come spiegato ma sono diverse dalle diminuzioni per lo scalfo fatte sul corpo , quindi non riesco a far combaciare i bordi per le cuciture . Dove sbaglio? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 13.07.2018 kl. 08:42:

Buongiorno Debora. Provi a vedere se il video che alleghiamo può aiutarla nella cucitura. Buon lavoro!

Jackie Marriott 03.07.2018 - 14:06:

Hi I persuaded my Mum to knit this jumper. She is 86 an experienced knitter and has been struggling with the way the pattern is written. I am also an experienced knitter and I too have had difficulty with its interpretation. I can see that others have had problems with how you are describing to decrease particularly the sleeves. If you decrease as it is written you do not have enough stitches to finish the decreasing. We are having to work it out ourselves.

Debora 16.06.2018 - 22:39:

Buonasera vorrei un chiarimento sulle diminuzioni nelle maniche a livello degli scalfi. Vanno fatte ogni ferro quindi anche sui ferri a rovescio? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 17.06.2018 kl. 07:55:

Buongiorno Debora. Sì le diminuzioni vanno fatte all'inizio di ogni ferro, quindi anche sul rovescio. Buon lavoro!

Claudia Wächtler 26.02.2018 - 13:10:
