Guten Tag Ich verstehe diese Stelle nicht. Wenn ich doch bei der MItte bin wie ende ich denn die Runde? mit freundlichen Grüssen Judith Zeller Glatt mit 6 M. Kraussrippe gegen die vordere Mitte weiterfahren. Nach 45-47cm auf beiden Seiten unter dem Ärmel

DROPS Design 12.09.2018 kl. 15:35:

Liebe Frau Zeller, Sie stricken wie zuvor, dh glatt überall außerdem die mittleren 6 Maschen für die vordere Mitte (unten am Ausschnitt). Die Arbeit wird dann später für die Armlöcher geteilt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lisa Furry 07.01.2016 - 08:22:

I am confused by the instructions: Continue like this with 6 garter stitches mid front. There are no specific videos for this pattern. Please help. Thank you.

Dear Mrs Furry, the video below shows how to work some rows in garter sts over the middle stss before dividing for neckline (number of sts is different but technique is the same). Happy knitting!

Fran Hoffman 20.06.2015 - 14:08:

The pattern calls for a US Size 10 needle, but I am having to use a US 10-1/2 needle to get the gauge. So, when the pattern says to change to a US 8 needle, what size should I use. A size 9?

Dear Mrs Hoffman, if you require larger needle for stocking st, you can use larger needle for garter st too (approx. same size difference depending on how tight/loose you work garter st). Happy knitting!

Young and nice pattern!

Janet Bruvik 28.02.2012 - 12:09:

Hei. Er det riktig at det skal legges opp 184 masker str. L? Synes det virker veldig lite, men kanskje det ikke er det siden det skal strikkes på pinne 6?

DROPS Design 29.02.2012 kl. 10:00:

Det stemmer. Du legger opp 184 masker som blir til 131 cm (forst er 66 cm bred).

Hej, fin modell. Men tråkigt att ni oftast har era modeller avskurna mitt på bysten. Det hade varit mycket snyggare om det hade varit UNDER bysten istället.
