Wäre es möglich von diesem Modell eine Rückenansicht zu sehen? Habe ein bisschen Probleme und kann mir das hinten auch nicht so richtig vorstellen. Lg Busetti

DROPS Design 02.08.2018 kl. 09:08:

Liebe Frau Busetti, wir haben leider keine Rückansicht. Nach 35-40 cm (siehe Größe) schlagen Sie 6 neuen Maschen am Ende der Reihe (= Blende) und stricken Sie krausrippen hin und zurück bis zur Ende (mit Knopflöchern auf der rechten Blende), dann werden die ersten 24-29 Maschen abgekettet und die erste Träger gestrickt. Die nächsten Maschem vom Top abketten (Armloch) und die Träger (Vorne) stricken, die nächsten Maschen vom mitte Vorne abketten, die 2. Träger (vorne) stricken, die Maschen für das 2. Armloch abketten, die 2. Träger (Rücken) stricken und die letzten M vom Top abketten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

This pattern is adorable. I'm decent at knitting from patterns but not at altering them. Do you have any guidance, for this pattern, to increase the fitted bust size to approximately 58 inches? Also, the total yarn amounts that would be needed for the increase and approximately 4 inches in length. I appreciate any ideas.

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:02:

Dear Yvonne, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every individual request, but you are welcome to contact your DROPS store or a knitting forum for any individual assistance. Happy knitting!

Jeg synes det er meget svært at gennemskue h orden modellen set ud bagpå. Kunne der ikke lægges et billede op af den bagfra?

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 13:43:

Hej Britta, det har vi desværre ikke, men toppen er ens foran og bagpå. God fornøjelse!

Nydelig topp, men innviklet mønster å lese seg til, spesielt forklaringen til stroppene var vanskelig. Ender med å strikke de for seg selv og sy de på.

Heather 12.02.2018 - 19:52:

I believe the amount of off white for the size Medium is off. My guage swatches are exact for the wave pattern and the garter stitch, but I still ran out of off white Muskat....I don't even have enough to start the second part of the sleeves. My shirt now only has one side done :( I now have to place an order for 1 ball of off white...so annoying. Are the counts off?

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 21:29:

Dear Heather sorry you are having problems with the yarn amount, however the amounts are correct. A number of knitters made this top and there were no problems. Hopefully you can still finish your top. Happy Knitting!

Heather Hicks 08.02.2018 - 20:41:

What do you mean when by this portion of the pattern. Continue with M.5 over the 1st 4 repetitions as before, work M.6 over the next 7 repetitions, continue with M.5 over the remaining 4 repetitions? You then state equals 2 rounds. Work M.3 over M.6, work the remaining repetitions in M.5. Then continue to repeat last 2 rounds. I think this means you work this row and the next row twice correct?

DROPS Design 09.02.2018 kl. 09:51:

Dear Mrs Hicks, each diagram consists on 2 rows - you first work M.5x4, M.6x7 (increase 2 sts in each diagram), M.5x4 1 time in height (= 2 rows), then work M.5x4, M.3x7,M.5x4 and repeat these 2 rows until piece measures 36 cm in size M. Happy knitting!

Heather Hicks 06.02.2018 - 17:22:

I am confused as to what size to make. I have made a few tops from DROPS before. How much ease is there on the finished garments? I am a 34 inch bust, but if there is a lot of ease I would want to make a size down etc. I am torn between the Medium and the Large size.

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 08:27:

Dear Mrs Hicks, compare the measurements from a similar top you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. It looks like with the size M it will be rather a negative ease (31.49" bust circumference) and with a size L rather positive (33.8"). Happy knitting!

Yvonne 24.11.2017 - 14:40:

Nu ben ik eindelijk een stukje op weg. Kunt u mij zeggen of ik M3 tot 18 cm moet breien of refereert dit naar de totale hoogte vanaf M1? Merci voor uw antwoord.

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 09:33:

Hallo Yvonne, Met de 18 cm wordt de totale hoogte bedoeld.

Yvonne 03.11.2017 - 21:30:

Ik vind het patroon echt erg moeilijk. Bijvoorbeeld hoeveel keer M1, M2 enz. enz. Ik heb het werk nu al drie keer uitgetrokken terwijl ik in 1 kleur brei. Als ik naar de instructievideo kijk wordt ik niet veel wijzer. Heeft u dit patroon niet in Jip en Janneke taal? Ik hoop dat u kunt helpen.

DROPS Design 04.11.2017 kl. 13:41:

Hallo Yvonne, We hebben het patroon zo geschreven, zodat het voor iedereen begrijpelijk zou moeten zijn. Je kunt altijd hier terrecht voor vragen, maar je kunt ook bij je verkooppunt vragen om hulp, zodat iemand met je mee kan kijken. Na het opzetten brei je een aantal herhalingen (hoeveel is afhankijlijk van je maat) in de breedte van A.1 en A.1 brei je één keer in de hoogte. De getallen waar streepjes tussen staan corresponderen met de maten, dus als er bijv. staat 168-180-192-216-240-264 steken op de naald is dat 168 voor S, 180 voor M en zo verder.
