I'm not sure if I've understood correctly. I have just finished the rib. The next row, on the RS (where the rib looks like KK PPPP KK) is KNIT (with decreases - K2, * K2 tog, K2 tog, K2 *) Now it's asking for reverse stocking, which means the RS is all PURL - but I just did a row of KNIT. Is it correct that on the RS there's one row of KNIT before PURLing the rest of the garment? Thank you :)

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 09:45:

Dear Arcadia, Knit the sts as described on first row after rib (= from RS) then continue with reversed stocking st (= P from RS and K from WS). Happy knitting!

Marti Hand 18.04.2018 - 02:19:

Hello...under the YOKE section \'...P10, *inc 1 st in each of the next 2 sts and K these 4 sts,...\r\nto knit these 4 sts -> do I put the 4 sts back on the left needle to knit or is there another method for knitting these 4 sts. Please clarify. Thank you!

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 09:45:

Dear Mrs Hand, you will knit 2 sts in the next 2 sts, ie knit into front and back loop each of these next 2 sts to inc 2 sts - see also video below. Happy knitting!

Bärbel 10.03.2018 - 10:50:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, ich habe eben die Anleitung ausgedruckt. Leider ist das Diagramm und die Zeichnung mit den Maßen nicht dabei, auch nicht in der Druckvorschau. Da werden auch nur 2 Seiten angezeigt. Wie könnt Ihr mir helfen? LG, Bärbel

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 08:35:

Liebe Bärbel, prüfen Sie die Druckeinstellungen, damit alle Seiten gedrückt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marti Hand 16.11.2017 - 13:03:

I have a question about the number of stitches for the size Small. My test sample came out correct -> 17x22 stitches = 4"x4" in Alaska. The number of cast on stitches called for = 240 stitches =56" in circumference...is the number of CO stitches correct for a size small? My hip measurement is 35 inches, and feel the above 56" is much too big to fit my frame. Either I'm super small or Norwegians are super big! If this is the case, can you please provide knitting instructions for XS?

DROPS Design 16.11.2017 kl. 13:28:

Dear Mrs Hand, you first work in rib, so that you need more sts for the correct width, then you will decrease to 164 sts in size S after ribbing. If your tension is fine, you will the finished measurements as in chart at the bottom of the pattern. Happy knitting!

Hey ihr Lieben! Ist das Zufall oder habt Ihr meinen Namen, den ich dieser Jacke meinem Projekt dazu in der großen Strickcommunity gegeben hab, verwendet? Ist mir nur grad so aufgefallen. Vorher hatte die Jacke nämlich nur diese Nummer und ich hab mein Projekt "Keltischer Wintertraum" genannt... LG Anja

DROPS Design 25.10.2017 kl. 12:22:

Liebe Anja, die Namen der Modellen sind aus der Empfehlungen und Vorschläge der Website Besucher ausgewählt; es ist dann nur Zufall.

Barbara 27.08.2017 - 08:46:

I only can print pages one and two, how can I chanced this?

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 11:36:

Dear Barbara, we successfully could print this pattern, maybe you should check the settings on your printer? Happy knitting!

Sally Ann Gray 27.07.2017 - 01:37:

I adore this pattern but wondered if there is a pattern for the cardigan too please? It is just gorgeous and I would like to make both.

DROPS Design 27.07.2017 kl. 09:08:

Dear Sally Ann, the pattern you refer to is actually a cardigan. If you meant if there is a pullover version, there is unfortunately not. However there is lots of patterns in similar styles, and you can also convert this pattern by knitting it in the round and omitting the button band. Happy knitting!

Kerri 05.10.2016 - 12:39:

The pattern says knit one row from RS after completing M1. Yet M1 last row would be from RS so the next row would be WS. ???? Solution please. Thanks, Kerri

DROPS Design 05.10.2016 kl. 14:03:

Dear Kerri, a correction will be made, after M.1 work 1 row from WS, then change to circular needle size 4 mm. Happy knitting!

Camilla Sundström 22.08.2016 - 15:14:

Jag ska göra strl M, och ska lägga upp 264 maskor. Stämmer detta verkligen? Om 17m = 10 cm. Den ska vara 100cm i vidd längst ner och det blir ju i så fall 170 maskor vilket känns långt från 264. Så tänker jag galet eller är det felskrivet? Tack på förhand // Camilla

DROPS Design 24.08.2016 kl. 12:06:

Hej Camilla. Mönstret er korrekt. Du starter med at strikke rib som traekker sig meget mere sammen en glatstrik (som strikkefastheden er i). Naar du er faerdig med ribben bytter du til p 5 og tager ind til 180 m. Fra her strikker du videre i glatstrik og med 180 m sidder du paa den rette maal.

Das ist so eine süße Jacke! passt maschenproben-mäßig auf meine Lieblingswolle DropsforYou4, also...
