Also, if the increases are supposed to be worked so they fit the pattern, how do I do that? Right now I'm on row 2 of M2, so I should be knitting and purling the same stitches as row 1. I don't know how to maintain this while also incorporating new stitches that fit into the pattern.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:43:

Dear Tanya, at the beg of round the new stitches should be worked as the previous stitch in diagram (if 1st st should be worked as a K stitch, Purl the new st, if 1st st should be a P stitch, K the new st). At the end of round, work the new st as the next st in diagram (if the next st should be a K st, work it K if it should be a P st, Purl it). Happy knitting!

Tanya 20.01.2019 - 02:20:

Hi, when it says work the increases in M2, can each increase be added in the same way using one of the techniques shown in the tutorial video, or are they supposed to be either knit/purl increases so they fit the pattern?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:42:

Dear Tanya, you can work the first and last stitch round into front and back loop (= 1 st on each side of the marker mid under sleeve) and work the new sts so that M.2 is growing at the beg and at the end of round. Pattern may not match on every round, but should match in each M.2 section. Happy Knitting!

Matt 19.01.2019 - 19:40:

For the sleeve increases, what does "Work inc sts into M.2 as you go along" mean specifically? Do you mean it's going to go: Marker, then a bunch of knit stitches (17 on each side of the marker in size L), then M.2? Or do you mean that the first increase stitch past the marker would be last stitch of new M.2, i.e. after 4 stitches I'll have added an additional M.2 between the original M.2 and the marker? Thanks.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:09:

Dear Matt, you are increasing mid under sleeve, ie whare round start and ends with M.2. Work the increased stitches mid under arm so that pattern continues both at the beg and at the end of the round - it may not match mid under sleeve. Happy knitting!

Berit Brødsgaard 07.01.2019 - 11:57:

Hej. Jeg kan ikke finde forklaring på hvad der menes når der skrives : " strik M3,M4, M3, M1 over de næste 44-44-52-52 ( Tel: 44-44-52-52) m..... hvad betyder det i paranteserne - Tel ?? Tillæg ?? Eller ? Jeg kan nemlig ikke fo omgangen til at gå op. Tak for ellers skønne letforståelige mønstre som jeg er storforbruger af. :-). Mvh. Berit

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 11:20:

Hei Berit. Jeg kan ikke finne noe sted der det står "( Tel: 44-44-52-52)" i den danske oppskriften? Men du strikker altså slik: 1 rapport M3, 1 rapport M.4, 1 rapport M.3 og så gjentar du M.1 over de neste 44-44-52-52 maskene. Du har nå strikket etter diagram over 70-70-78-78 masker. God fornøyelse

Fabi 06.01.2019 - 22:59:

Buonasera, nella risposta precedente mi dite di lavorare solo M.1 sulle 52 maglie successive, ma M1 è composto da 8 maglie...come è possibile??? 8x6=48 non 52 oppure 8x7=56 non 52; verrebbe l’ultimo M1 incompleto. Potete spiegarmi meglio? Grazie

DROPS Design 06.01.2019 kl. 23:27:

Buonasera Fabi. Le indicazioni sono corrette. Lavora il diagramma M1 completo per 6 volte, arrivando così a 48 m. Poi lavora le prime 4 m del diagramma sulle 4 m successive. In tutto 52 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Agatha 04.01.2019 - 22:30:

Sorry, I'm still confused. Does this mean I'm alternating knit and purl stitches for the first 12 stitches, or is it just for the first 8 and then I switch to purl, knit?

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 22:53:

Dear Agatha, you've to start reading the diagram from the bottom, right to left, so you've to alternate knit and purl on the first 12 sts on the first row. Happy knitting!

Agatha 04.01.2019 - 20:13:

Hi, when it says work M2 on the first 12 stitches, does that mean I do the bottom row of M2 three times, or do I do the bottom three rows of M2 to make 12?

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 21:58:

Dear Agatha, you have to repeat diagram M.2 three times. Happy knitting!

FC 02.01.2019 - 17:00:

Non capisco “Lavorare ora il davanti e il dietro separatamente (assicurarsi che i ferri con le trecce siano sul diritto dopo aver diviso il lavoro). DIETRO: = 118-124-132-142-160-168-178 m. Lavorare avanti e indietro sul ferro circolare.” Ma se si devono Lavorare ora il davanti e il dietro separatamente, non si deve lavorare con i ferri dritti? perché dite Lavorare avanti e indietro sul ferro circolare?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 17:42:

Buonasera FC, questo maglione si lavora con i ferri circolari anche durante la lavorazione in piano per avere spazio per tutte le maglie. Se preferisce può lavorare il davanti e il dietro dopo la separazione con i ferri dritti, se il numero di maglie lo consente. Buon lavoro!

Fabi 02.01.2019 - 16:50:

Non tornano i conti per la taglia XXL “Taglie XL-XXXL: M.2 sulle prime 8-12-17 m, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.1 sulle 52-52-52 m successive, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.2 sulle 16-24-34 m successive, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.1 sulle 52-52-52 m successive, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.2 sulle ultime 8-12-17 m” Sulle prime 52 maglie ok, ma M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.2 sulle 16-24-34 m successive non fa 24, ma 48 e ancora M.3, M.4, M.3, M.4, M.3, M.2 sulle ultime 8-12-17 m, non fa 12 ma 48

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 17:59:

Buonasera Fabi, per la taglia XL deve lavorare M.2 sulle prime 8 maglie, poi lavorare M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), poi solo M.1 sulle 52 maglie successive, poi lavorare M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), poi solo M.2 sulle 16 maglie successive, poi M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), poi solo M.1 sulle 52 maglie successive e infine M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), M.4 (= 10 m), M.3 (= 8 m), poi solo M.2 sulle ultime 8 maglie = 8+8+10+8+10+8+52+8+10+8+10+8+16+8+10+8+10+8+52+8+10+8+10+8+8= 312 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Sara 01.01.2019 - 23:12:

Aber dann würde der Pullover doch recht „fest“ bzw. klein im Muster werden und ich würde bestimmt auch sehr viel mehr Wolle (und Zeit für das Stricken) benötigen, oder? Danke für Ihre Hilfe, so ein Problem hatte ich noch nie…

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:48:

Liebe Sara, wegen der speziellen Struktur (siehe Farbekarte ist eine richtige Behandlung besonders wichtig: halten Sie die Maschenprobe genau ein und stricken Sie im Zweifelsfall lieber zu fest als zu locker. Am besten striken Sie die Maschenprobe, waschen Sie sie und lassen Sie sie trocknen, dann Maschenprobe noch mal messen und prüfen. Ihr DROPS Laden hat sicher auch individuellen Tipp für Sie - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
