Sorry, I have more questions! When following the chart, I understand that I read it from right to left when working in the round. But when working back and forth, does each row in the diagram count as two rows (RS and WS)? And do the knit stitches change to purl stitches when working the cabling on the WS? Also, once I've worked the number of rows in the chart do we start from the bottom again? Sorry for all the questions!

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 08:05:

Hi Agetha. Each row in the diagram count as individual rows, however they are all shown from the RS. Thus, when working back and forth every row from the WS have to be read backwards. ie: from left to right. Additionally; knit stitches are purled and purled stitches are knit from WS (as you say). This is also explained in the symbol definition. Yes, that's correct: once the diagram has been worked vertically start again from the first row until pattern tells you otherwise. Happy knitting

Agatha 07.12.2018 - 02:41:

Also, if we had to increase/decrease the needle size to get the correct gauge with the 4mm needles do we need to do the same with the 3.5mm needles? Or do we use 3.5mm needles regardless?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 07:57:

Hi Agatha, If you need to decrease the needle size to get the right knitting tension, this will also be necessary for the size 3.5 mm needles. Happy knitting!

Agatha 07.12.2018 - 02:18:

Hi, I'm confused about the different parts of the pattern. What exactly is the difference between the body piece and the front and back pieces?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 07:59:

Hi Afgatha, The body is worked in the round (so both back and front pieces) as far as the armholes. When you have cast off stitches for the armholes you will then work the front and back pieces separately working back and forth to finished length. Happy knitting!

Barbara 05.12.2018 - 23:36:

Hi! I made this sweater for my brother in size L. The sizing is perfect except for the shoulders, neck and armpit parts, he says the sweater is too tight there and he cannot wear it like that. How can I fix this problem?

DROPS Design 06.12.2018 kl. 09:58:

Dear Barbara, did you get and keep the correct tension in height? This maybe the reason. A good idea could be to bring your jumper to your store - or send them a picture per mail - so tha they can help you finding the solution. Happy knitting!

Luna 03.12.2018 - 16:05:

Hi, I have a question about reading the charts, is one row on the chart one round when knitting or is it for two rounds?

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 16:22:

Dear Luna, each row in the diagram has to be worked, start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left every round (when working in the round) or every RS row (when working back and forth, then you will read every WS row from the left towards the right). Happy knitting!

Agatha 30.11.2018 - 03:06:

Hi, I'm confused about the needle sizes. Is the 40cm/80cm the length of the double pointed needles?

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 03:48:

Dear Agatha, the 40 / 80 cm refers to the length of teh wire of th circular needles. I hope this helps. Happy Kntiing!

Julia 26.11.2018 - 22:18:

Hi, I'm having a hard time understanding the instructions where it says "slip 2 sts on cable needle in front of piece, K2, K2 from cable needle" what does it mean, do I slip 2 and then knit 4? or slip 2 and then knit 2 from the cable, and what does it mean by in front of piece? does it mean the right side or only when I'm in front of the jumper, if so what do I do on the back?

DROPS Design 27.11.2018 kl. 08:50:

Dear Julia, for this cable you slip 2 sts on a cable needle and leave the cable needle in front of work (cables are worked from RS, the cable needle should be facing you), then work the next 2 sts and now work the 2 sts from cable needle. This video shows how to work a cable placing sts either in front of work or behind the work. Happy knitting!

Ariana 24.11.2018 - 16:38:

Thanks Drops, now I'm running into another problem. After the 12 ME stitches, I've knitted M3 (8), M4 (10), M3 (8), but M1 has 8 stitches and I don't see how I can repeat that chart for 52 stitches, if it doesn't go evenly into 52. What am I missing! Thanks.

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 08:28:

Dear Ariana, to work A.1 over 52 sts, repeat A.1 a total of 6 times in width (= 8 sts x 6 times = 48 sts) then work the first 4 sts in A.1 = 48+6=52 sts. Happy knitting!

Ariana 23.11.2018 - 14:36:

I am really struggling with this pattern. I am knitting size M and have just finished the two garter rounds after the initial ribbing. Am i really just supposed to knit M2 on the first 12 stitches, and then just M3 for the rest of the round? I don't understand how this will get me the design, but that's what the pattern seems to be saying. Please help! I am trying to finish this for my husband before Christmas.

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 15:15:

Dear Arianna, at the beg of piece after the 2 garter stitch round, work as follows: M.2 on the first 12 sts, then work diagrams: M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), then M.1 on the next 52 sts, then work diagrams M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.2 on the next 24 sts, M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.1 on the next 52 sts, M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.2 on the last 12 sts = 12+8+10+8+52+8+10+8+24+8+10+8+52+8+10+8+12= 256 sts. Happy knitting!

Nermine 16.11.2018 - 04:23:

Please I cann't understand the dec. for back piece and dec. tip..how I casting off sts at the same time remaining 26 sts for back piece...please more detailes if you can..

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:39:

Dear Nermine, you will decrease and bind off at the same time as shown in this video - you will here decrease 2 sts in each decrease, and decrease 10-12 sts in M.1 (= repeat 5-6 times the dec), 2 st sin M.1, 3 sts in M.4 and 6 sts in M.5 as explained under DECREASE TIP. Happy knitting!
