Thank you Drops but that’s not my question. I know how to decrease and cast off. My question is this: the pattern states that the back piece should be decreased and cast off on row 7 of the pattern. On row 7 the cables are knit. Should I knit the cables as well as decrease and cast off, or should I just decrease and cast off and leave the cables?

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 14:24:

Dear Mrs Otten, you can work the cables and decrease and cast off at the same time. Happy knitting!

R. Otten 10.10.2018 - 12:11:

R. Otten 07.10.2018 - 15:37:

I’m more confused now. When I was waiting for the answer as to whether or not I should knit the cables on row 7 *and* decrease and cast off all at once, I thought I’d found the answer further down the questions section: on 21-1-2015 Drops wrote to Mrs Taylor “you cannot work the cables because of the decrease”. Now the answer is I *should* work the cables? Please clarify.

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 09:07:

Dear Mrs Otten, this video shows your how to decrease and bind off at the same time (to avoid an extra width on the piece because you need more sts in cable pattern than in stocking st, if you don't decrease while casting off you would have a larger cast off row then the piece. Happy knitting!

DANIELE 05.10.2018 - 11:13:

Buongiorno! Non mi tornano i conti per la chiusura del DIETRO, in particolare per la misura L. Se eseguo le diminuzioni come indicato: "Chiudere per gli scalfi da ciascun lato all'inizio di ogni ferro, come segue: 2 m per 2 volte e 1 m per 3 volte = 128 m.", arrivo a 135 maglie. Arriverei a 128 maglie raddoppiando le diminuzioni. Si stanno forse contando solo i ferri dritti, mentre devo eseguire le stesse diminuzioni anche sul rovescio, per un totale di 10 ferri?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 11:56:

Buongiorno Daniele. Le diminuzioni vanno fatte da entrambi i lati per gli scalfi. Deve quindi chiudere 7 maglie sia sul lato destro che sul lato sinistro. In tutto 14 maglie in meno. In questo modo arriva ad avere 128 maglie. Buon lavoro!

R. Otten 04.10.2018 - 13:58:

When casting off the back on row 7, should I complete the cable pattern *and* decrease and cast off, or should I just decrease and cast off?

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 16:09:

Dear Mrs Otten, you work row 7 and at the same time decrease and cast off all sts. Happy knitting!

Ann Kristin Sti 28.09.2018 - 12:45:

Skal strikke str L. Hvis jeg legger sammen antall masker i mønster som er 172,får jeg ikke det til å gå opp i antall masker etter vrangvbord. For genser eller lik på forstykket og bakstykke?

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 08:59:

Hei Ann-Kristin. Genseren er lik på forstykke og bakstykke. Du strikker altså M.2 over de første 17 masker, så strikker du M.3 (=8 masker), M.4 (=10 masker), M.3 (08 masker), og så strikkes M.1 over de neste 52 maskene. Videre strikkes M.3, M.4. M3 igjen (= 26 masker totalt) før M.2 strikkes over de neste 34 maskene. Midten av disse 34 maskene = siden av arbeidet. Videre strikkes M.3, M.4, M.3 (=26 masker) før M.1 igjen gjentas over 52 masker. Så strikkes M.3, M.4. M.3 (=26 masker) før de siste 17 maskene strikkes i M.2 = 276 masker strikket, og du har strikket en hel omgang. God fornøyelse.

Elin Haave 11.09.2018 - 09:30:

Jeg skal felle ermet fra høyre side 24 masker. Samtidig skal jeg strikke 14 av dem sammen to og to. Betyr det st jeg skal felle 10 masker og de siste 14 to og to sammen for så å felle dem på neste rettpinne?

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 15:19:

Hei Elin. Du skal felle dem på samme pinne, og du strikker 14 av maskene sammen 2 og 2 før du feller dem som vanlig. Her er en video som viser hvordan dette gjøres. God fornøyelse.

Barbara Thomas 10.09.2018 - 14:49:

Bonjour, je commence ce très beau pull et suis déjà avec un problème.... je fais la taille L en rond, soit au moment de commencer les points fantaisies j’ai 240 mailles. Les points fantaisies indiquent : - -M2 sur les 12 premières m. M3 etc ...sur les 44 m suivantes M3 etc...sur les 24 m suivantes M3 etc.... sur les 44 m suivantes M3 etc.... sur les 12 suivantes. Si j’additionne 12,44,24,44,12= 136 mailles. Hors j’ai 240 mailles. Je fais comment? Merci

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Mme Janes, en taille L vous devez avoir 276 mailles (et 240 m en taille M), tricotez ces 276 m ainsi: M2 sur les17 premières m, M3 (= 8 m), M4 (= 10 m), M3 (= 8 m), M1 sur les 52 m suivantes, M3 (= 8m), M4 (= 10 m), M3 (= 8 m), M2 sur les 34 m suivantes, M3 (= 8 m), M4 (= 10 m), M3 (= 8 m), M1 sur les 52 m suivantes, M3 (= 8 m), M4 (= 10 m), M3 (= 8 m, M2 sur les 17 dernières m soit: 17 + 8 + 10 + 8 + 52 + 8+ 10 + 8+ 34 + 8+ 10 + 8+ 52+ 8+ 10+ 8+ 17 = 276 m. Bon tricot!

Ana Cecilia Ramirez 23.07.2018 - 22:12:

Jeg strikker for første gang en Aran og har mange spørsmål. Neste spørsmål gjelder felling I høyre erme. først er det 24, det står 3m 2 ganger er det I samme p. felling? setter pris på hjelpen her.

DROPS Design 24.07.2018 kl. 10:16:

Hei Ana Cecilia, Du fortsetter å felle med 24 masker på begynnelse av pinnen på høyre siden 1 gang, samtidig som du strikker 14 av disse maskene sammen 2 og 2 (og feller dem av), deretter 3 masker på neste 2 pinner (bare på høyre sida). God fornøyelse!
