Hallo, ich habe die Jacke gestrickt. Nun rollt sie sich vorne hoch. Was kann ich dagegen machen? Sonst war die Anleitung toll und die Jacke ließ sich gut stricken.

DROPS Design 23.01.2018 kl. 08:48:

Liebe Frau Bothmann, Sie können die Jacke mit Stecknadeln auf einer geeigneten Unterlage spannen, anfeuchten (z.B. mit einer Sprühflasche für Blumen) und trocknen lassen, danach entfernen Sie die Stecknadeln, dann sollte sich der Rand nicht mehr rollen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Joan 02.07.2017 - 17:37:

Hi, when doing the increases the pattern refers to "inc 1 st (work 2 sts in 1 st) inside 1 edge st at end of row . I am confused by the term "inside 1 edge st at edge of row". Does this mean increase in the stitch before the last stitch of the row? Thank you.

DROPS Design 03.07.2017 kl. 00:37:

Dear Joan, "increase inside of the edge stitch" means at the end of the row, that you should knit until you have 2 stitches left at the end, knit 2 stitch into the next stitch and knit the edge stitch. (If inside the edge stitch would be at the beginning of the row, you should knit the edge stitch, then 2 stitch into the second stitch, and knit the rest of the row as it was set). I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Goullier 01.03.2017 - 16:58:

Bonjour dans le 121 Je comprend pas devant il faut tricoter 4 rangs point mousse et faire les boutonnières au rang suivant les 4 rangs et faire encore 4 rangs et rabattre merci

DROPS Design 01.03.2017 kl. 17:28:

Bonjour Mme Goullier, vous tricotez d'abord 4 rangs endroit, puis au rang suivant (= sur l'endroit), ouvrez les boutonnières. Tricotez ensuite 1 rang endroit sur l'envers et 4 autres rangs endroit soit 10 rangs endroit au total = 5 côtes mousse. Bon tricot!

Lynne Willette 29.10.2014 - 05:26:

I'm confused as to why the sleeve length is longest for the small size going to shortest for the largest size. Am I right in thinking I can knit the sleeve to my own wrist-to-underarm length of 17-3/4" for the medium size I am making? Or am I overlooking something?

DROPS Design 29.10.2014 kl. 09:46:

Dear Mrs Willette, sleeves will be longer in larger size since shoulder part is then smaller than in larger size - see also measurement chart at the bottom of thhe pattern. Happy knitting!

Genay 03.06.2014 - 21:53:

Bonjour Pouvez vous me dire comment proceder pour tricoter le motif ajouré en sens inverse merci

DROPS Design 04.06.2014 kl. 09:02:

Bonjour Mme Genay, quand on tricote le devant gauche et le dos en sens inverse du côté droit, il faut tricoter en vis à vis, mais le point fantaisie restera le même. N'hésitez pas à demander conseil à votre magasin DROPS ou sur le forum DROPS si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

Marion De Wild 25.05.2014 - 16:58:

Een prachtig vest. Moet nu het gedeelte van linker voorpand in spiegelbeeld breiden. Hier heb ik echt even hulp bij nodig. Had liever een complete patroonbeschrijving voor dit gedeelte gezien. Graag snel uw reactie, want ik wil natuurlijk verder. Groeten

DROPS Design 27.05.2014 kl. 12:03:

Hoi Marion. Het is helaas niet voor mij mogelijk om het patroon helemaal voor je uit te schrijven, maar het is eigenlijk vrij simpel: Voor de rechter voorpand heb je gemeerderd aan het begin van de nld (de omslagen na 2, 3, 5 st enzovoort), in spiegelbeeld betekent dat je de werkwijze omkeert, dus begin met 2 st in de st naast de kantst en brei tot er 2 st over zijn, 1 omslag, 2 r enzovoort. En bij een hoogte 13-25 cm zet je de eerste 110 tot 131 st op een hulpdraad ipv de laatste.

Karin 25.09.2013 - 11:21:

I knitted this in Lima instead. I re-did the edges at the end, knitting extra firm but it still came out wobbly. It was lying finished in a drawer unwearable for 6 months. After heavy blocking I am wearing it for the first time now. I'm really disappointed. I am an experienced and even knitter. Could it be the yarn excange causing this?

Doris 08.09.2013 - 18:24:

Grüezi. Ich frage mich, ob hier nicht ein Fehler passiert ist: "GLEICHZEITIG nach 15 cm glatt weiterfahren. Nach 43-41-40-38-38-35 cm mit den offenen Krausrippen weiterfahren. Nach ca. 53-51-50-49-48-45 cm". Müsste nicht bei der kleinsten Grösse bei 35 mit der offenen Krausrippe, resp. 45 cm mit dem Abketten begonnen werden? Ich danke Ihnen für eine rasche Antwort, da ich mit der Arbeit bereits begonnen habe. Freundliche Grüsse. Doris

DROPS Design 09.09.2013 kl. 10:49:

Lieeb Doris, die Anleitng ist korrekt, Sie können stricken wie angegeben. Wegen der grösseren Breite des Rumpfteils sind bei den grossen Grössen die Ärmel kürzer.

P Goodwin 19.01.2013 - 17:53:

I canot get this patern to knit right on the lace side bit the instruction dont seem to be very clear it say k YO what is YO

Vera 19.01.2013 kl. 18:57:

= Yarn over

Mayke 16.09.2012 - 13:56:

Supermooi vest, ook erg leuk om aan te breien. Het enige probleem is dat ik de rondingen van het voorpand niet mooi strak krijg: ze blijven maar bobbelen en omkrullen. Nu kan ik er natuurlijk een strakkere rand langs haken, maar misschien heeft u een beter idee?

DROPS Design 17.09.2012 kl. 11:40:

De rand kan krullen als de rand te strak is gemaakt. Je kan proberen om een bredere bies of een wat lossere rand erop te haken. Maar probeer eerst om het vest te wassen en stoom/pers vervolgens de randen plat met een strijkijzer (leg wel een theedoek ertussen).
