Hi I'm fm Egypt I wish to do this pattern I need yr help to do same with double pointed needles unfortunately I can't make it with circle needles thanks

Dear Mrs Zahran, pattern is here worked back and forth on needle, only edges around armholes are worked in the round. Please find here how to adjust a pattern on straight needle. For any further assistance you are welcome to contact your DROPS store even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Habe gerade die schöne Weste angefangen, aber finde in der Anleitung nicht, wie ich die Rückseite des Musters stricken muss?!

DROPS Design 12.04.2016 kl. 19:16:

Liebe Katja, es sind Hin-und Rückreihen dargestellt.

Larala 21.02.2016 - 22:29:

Really pretty pattern, but not well written. I'm doing the XL size. At 45 cm, there are 223 st. If I bind off as indicated, by the time I get to 47 cm, I have only 199 st left. But the pattern shows 50+103+50=203. It doesn't make sense, as I would have to bind off every over row instead of every row to get there. At what point does the 50/103 st count starts? If that takes into account the armhole decrease, shouldn't the markers be at 55 on each side between 45 and 47 cm. Please clarify.

DROPS Design 22.02.2016 kl. 11:10:

Dear Larala, when piece measures 45 cm you start dec for neckline on both sides (see under right front piece, ie: 8 sts 1 time + 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 3 times ..x 2 sides), when you bind off for armholes, you will have already bound off/dec for neckline on both front pieces, that's why you have less sts. Happy knitting!

Jacinthe Marcoux 16.02.2016 - 15:19:

Vers la fin des explications: Dos et devant: à 45 cm de hauteur total.... Et ensuite on dit, à 46 cm de hauteur pour la taille Large que j'utilise, tricoter le rang suivant ainsi : tricoter... C'est comme s'il faut faire un tour complet, alors qu'on a deja commencer à rabatre selon le modele du devant droit???????

DROPS Design 16.02.2016 kl. 15:56:

Bonjour Mme Marcoux, à 45 cm, vous commencez à former l'encolure comme expliqué sous le devant droit, mais vous continuez à tricoter sur toutes les mailles (formez bien l'encolure sur chacun des 2 devants), et, à 46 cm, rabattez les mailles des emmanchures et continuez chaque pièce séparément. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, j'ai réalisé ce gilet pour ma fille Amélie et il est magnifique !

Johanna Dalsant 03.02.2015 - 16:31:

Muss man auf beiden Seiten Abketten oder macht man das nur auf der Vorderseite?

Johanna Dalsant 09.01.2015 - 17:23:

Tut mir Leid, ich hab gestern die falsche Sprache erwischt... Hab meine Frage glaub ich inzwischen selbst geklärt, danke trotzdem :-)

Bitte beschreiben Sie etwas genauer, welche Stelle Sie meinen.

Johanna Dalsant 23.12.2014 - 18:00:

Do I have to decrease starting at 5 cm of the total work? If so, I've got something wrong ;-)

DROPS Design 23.12.2014 kl. 19:11:

Dear Mrs Dalsant, that's correct decrease start when piece measures a total of 5 cm from cast on edge. Happy knitting!
