REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue in pattern like this. NOTE! Remember BUTTONHOLES - see above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 5 cm dec in the garter st-section each side by K2 tog before and after sts with marker (= 4 dec), repeat the dec on every 2.5 cm a total of 5 times = 142-160-170-188-210-232 sts (NOTE! when doing the 5th dec dec as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso). Continue the last garter st each side in garter st. When piece measures 20 cm inc 1 st each side of garter st each side (= 4 inc), and repeat on every 6-6-6-7-7-7 cm a total of 3 times = 154-172-182-200-222-244 sts. Work inc sts in garter st.

Beim Ärmel steht: nach 8cm auf beiden Seiten der M. In Krausrippe ausnehmen.... Die neuen Maschen werden ins Muster eingetrichtert. Welches Muster? Krausrippe oder Perl?

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 13:36:

Liebe Diana, die neuen Maschen werden im Perlmuster gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Joan 10.11.2016 - 20:07:

Kan man mon ikke ,forlænge ,det nederste stykke så det bliver,frakke str. .? Mvh.

DROPS Design 11.11.2016 kl. 15:14:

Hej Joan. Det tror jeg sagtens du kan.

Marjan Heinsbroek 06.10.2016 - 20:37:

Verdwijnen bij het minderen in de strook van 11 ribbelsteken deze ribbelsteken? Of vul je steeds weer aan tot de 11? En wat wordt bedoeld met de laatste zin van de 2e alinea: Ga verder over de laatste ribbelst aan iedere kant in ribbelst?

DROPS Design 07.10.2016 kl. 13:03:

Hoi Marjan. De ribbelst worden steeds eerst minder en vanaf een hoogte 20 cm meerder je weer in de ribbelst

Tine 26.09.2016 - 19:33:

Når jeg strikker frem og tilbage vrider det sig og bliver meget skævt, jeg har prøvet at starte forfra og strikket løsere, men det hjælper ikke. Hvad gør jeg forkert?

DROPS Design 27.09.2016 kl. 15:43:

Hej Tine. Det ved jeg desvaerre ikke. Forskyder du mon mönstret? Det er lidt svaert for mig at se naar jeg ikke kan se dit arbejde :/

Inge-Lise 05.11.2014 - 15:05:

The pattern has a gauge reported as 18 sts x 23 rows in stockinette st =10 x 10 cm. However, the jacket is knitted in seed stitch. I believe a seed stitch does not have the same gauge as a stockinette. I get less rows although the same sts per 10 x 10 cm in a seed stitch. If I do my sample in a stockinette as the pattern indicates, my gauge is right. Is the gauge noted actually in a stockinette stitch, in which case my gauge would be correct? Thanks for any help you can provide.

DROPS Design 05.11.2014 kl. 15:10:

Dear Inge-Lise, if your tension in stocking st is correct, your work should be correct too. The indications in height are given in cm so that you can adapt easily in any case. Happy knitting!

Katrine Røjel 06.04.2014 - 10:39:

Jeg har ikke strikket efter jeres opskrifter før. Findes der et størrelses-skema, så jeg kan måle mig frem til, om jeg skal strikke denne cardigan i M eller L? Tak, venlig hilsen Katrine Røjel

DROPS Design 07.04.2014 kl. 11:50:

Hej Katrine. Nederst paa vores mönstre finder du et maaleskema hvor alle maal er opgivet i cm per störrelse. Du kan bruge den til at vaelge din störrelse. God fornöjelse.

Mette 25.02.2014 - 16:56:

Hej Helle. 54 cm er hel længde, så det er rigtigt at du skal lukke til ærmegab efter 34 cm Hilsen Mette

Anna 25.02.2014 - 08:29:

54 cm är ju hela längden!

Helle Jaqué 24.02.2014 - 19:45:

Jeg forstår ikke lige at der i opskriften står at der deles til ryg og forstykker ved 34cm (S) men diagrammet viser 54cm ?? 34 virker kort men 54 virker til gengæld meget langt... ???

DROPS Design 26.02.2014 kl. 17:21:

Hej Helle. 54 cm er den totale höjde paa jakken. Aermegabet er 20 cm, saa 34 cm er korrekt.

Christine Crétin 19.11.2013 - 21:08:

Pour la taille L (dos et devants) il est dit de faire à 20cm 4 augmentations tous les 6 cm: on passe de 170 à 182 mailles mais on arrive à 38cm donc au-delà des 36 cm à partir desquels il faut rabattre 7m de chaque côté . Aurais-je mal lu ? Merci de me répondre .

DROPS Design 20.11.2013 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Madame Crétin, pour le dos et devants taille L, on augmente 3 fois tous les 6 cm, soit la 1ère à 20 cm, la 2ème à 26 cm et la 3ème à 32 cm. Vous continuez ensuite jusqu'à 36 cm pour rabattre les mailles des emmanchures. Bon tricot!
