Bonjour, je suis au paragraphe DOS & DEVANT (je tricote en taille L) et je ne comprends pas "Répéter ces augmentations tous les rangs sur l'endroit jusqu'à la fin = environ 33 rangs avec des augmentations" quelle fin.? j'ai mis mes marqueurs à la 29ème maille de chaque côté mais je bloque sur l'augmentation. faut-il toujours la faire de chaque côté à la 29ème maille.? merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 02.09.2013 kl. 10:18:

Bonjour Audrey, vous augmentez tous les 2 rangs (=tous les rangs sur l'endroit) sur les côtés = de chaque côté des marqueurs repères pour les côtés, ces augmentations se répètent 33 fois au total, toujours de chaque côté des marqueurs, soit pour une tension équivalente en hauteur, environ 29 cm. Bon tricot!

Beste, Als ik de tekening van het achterpand bekijk dan is het tussendeel duidelijk breder dan de schouderdelen. Toch is er amper verschil in het stekenaantal tussen de schouders en het middel deel. Is er een fout of heb ik het verkeerd voor? Want als ik het gebreide vest bekijk is dat ook duidelijk breder. Mvg, els inghelram

DROPS Design 19.07.2013 kl. 12:50:

Hoi Els. Het patroon is correct. Je meerdert gelijkmatig volgens het patroon en door het model / meerderingen zal het gaan vallen zoals op de foto als je klaar bent.

Gro 10.05.2013 - 14:51:

Kunne ønsket meg et alternativ med oppskrift på halv-lange ermer. Er det mulig å få til?

DROPS Design 10.05.2013 kl. 16:22:

Hej Gro. Vi kan desvaerre ikke lave en ekstra, men skal skrive det paa önskesedlen til fremtidige kollektioner. Maaske kan du finde et par halv-lange aermer paa en anden model i samme strikkefasthed og selv tilpasse? God fornöjelse.

I don't understand the inc. When I increase on the 9th, 7th, 6th, 4th, 4th, 3rd rows and then I repeat 14 times for xl. Do I do the 7th repeat on the 9th row again or do I just repeat every 3rd row till I make the rest of the 14 repeats. I'm really confused by this line. I love this but I'm really stuck. Thank you

DROPS Design 07.05.2013 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mary, if you are working size XL, you will repeat the inc a total of 14 times every 4th row (left front piece). Happy knitting!

Best vest yet. Casual, Modern, uncomplicated, with great lines, relatively easy to knit in stockinette stitch. Adapted for using a worsted weight alpaca yarn with no give or stretch, this pattern suited it very well. Now I want to make it again, but this time in the yarn for which it was designed-for summer layering. I followed directions in the pattern for the Muskat yarn for the Alpaca.

¿Antes de poner todo en la aguja circular debo cortar la hebra para uno de los delanteros? No me queda claro con qué hebra trabajar cuando ya tengo las 3 piezas (los 2 delanteros y la espalda). ¿Debo aprovechar la hebra de uno de los delanteros y tener cortadas las hebras de la espalda y del otro delantero? Por otro lado, ¿qué tipo de orillo recomiendan para este trabajo?

Leider stimmt beim linken Vorderteil die Maschenprobe für Größe S mit Muskat und Nadel 6 gar nicht. Es wird viel länger. Auch mit Nadel 5 kommt es nicht hin. Sollte ich vielleicht lieber Nadel 4 nehmen oder die Aufnahmen nicht in jeder 9. sondern 7. Reihe machen?

DROPS Design 27.01.2013 kl. 15:56:

Liebe Sarah, wenn die Breite sitmmt, würde ich Nadel 4 nehmen.

Sandra 25.03.2012 - 19:23:

Sto lavorando il davanti sx in taglia S e alla fine del pezzo mi ritrovo con 24 m. In effetti ho 1 m in piu dopo i primi 2 cm e 6 m in piu dopo gli aumenti successivi (per un tot di 7). O magari sono io che non sto capendo bene le istruzioni... Aiutatemi!

DROPS Design 26.03.2012 kl. 10:53:

Innanzitutto abbiamo modificato leggermente alcune parole nel testo. Spero sia più chiaro. Lei sta facendo bene: avvio 17 m, dopo 2 cm + 1 m, poi per un totale di 6 (!!) volte, aumento di 1 m, quindi 17+1+6=24 m. Forse l'errore sta nelle 7 volte. Sono 6 aumenti ogni 9 ferri.

Vesten er ferdig - men det ble veldig mye rull mot ermhullet og mot midten på forstykkene. Jeg har løst dette ved å hekle 2 omganger fastmasker rundt ermene (først fra retten og så fra vrangen så det blir mer stabilt) og 3 omganger med fastmasker rundt fra forstykke bak hals og ned forstykke. Valgte elastisk avfelling (som DROPS video) og da gikk det fint nederste på vesten.
