Great thanks for the info. I have another questions. It has to do with the photo of this sweater submitted by vanilleriri. I am curious about the alterations on this pattern. I looks like Medieval however looks like you put in raglan sleeves and pockets, as well as the cable around the collar. I love it. Do you have directions for the alterations you made?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:10:

Dear Mrs Chop, you are welcome to contact directly the knitter to ask her your questions, we can here only answer about the pattern as it is explained and shown on our pages. Happy knitting!

Marika Chop 18.01.2019 - 20:57:

Hi, I love this pattern and would love to make it but I don't see amount of yarn requirement anywhere. How would i estimate the amount of yarn needed for a Lg or XL version of this beauty??

DROPS Design 19.01.2019 kl. 13:43:

Ook ik kwam diverse patronen van jullie tegen op e-bay. Ik heb een schermafbeelding gemaakt, maar die kan ik hier niet bijvoegen. Ongelooflijk dat jullie zeer gewaardeerde database met patronen zo misbruikt wordt!

Shanna LeBlanc 27.03.2018 - 03:01:

I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but this pattern is being sold by someone on eBay. It looks like they cropped your logo off of the front image. I found it the other day! I can't post the link but search for this: Ladies Knitting Pattern 745, Medieval Asymmetric Aran/ 10 ply Cable Jacket. I don't want any of your hard work getting ripped off!

Sieht auf den Bildern leider besser aus als in der Realität. Zupft man an ihr herum (wie auf den Fotos), geht es noch, aber wer macht das schon die ganze Zeit? Steht man ganz normal, sehen die "Zipfel" aus wie unförmige Lappen, die extrem auftragen. In Größe L wird die Jacke zudem viel zu lang. Ich mit einer Größe von 1,60m kann sie garnicht tragen und auch bei 1,75m sieht die Jacke immernoch sehr merkwürdig aus. Schade!

Niedeczki Zita 18.04.2017 - 13:58:

Az eleje nyakleírásában hibát vélek felfedezni. A 23 szemből 9 és 7 szem lekötése van írva. De az csak 16 szem... Mi lenne a megoldás?

DROPS Design 18.04.2017 kl. 23:26:

Kedves Zita! A leírásban az szerepel, hogy "láncoljunk le 7 szemet a következő 2 sor elején, majd a megmaradt kilenc szemet." Tehát kétszer kell a 7 szemet, és egyszer 9 szemet. (14+9 = 23). Bízom benne, hogy ez segít. Sikeres kézimunkázást!

Marie-Laure Celton 23.11.2015 - 11:03:

Bonjour, ce modèle est superbe. Est il possible de le tricoter avec des aiguilles droites à la place des aiguilles circulaires et comment. Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 23.11.2015 kl. 11:07:

Bonjour Mme Celton et merci. On tricote ici sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour toutes les mailles, vous pouvez ainsi utiliser des aig. droites mais vos mailles seront plus serrées, assurez-vous de bien conserver la bonne tension - Plus d'infos ici. Bon tricot!

Maria Lindgren 02.02.2015 - 21:55:

Jag får inte ärmen att stämma. Jag tror att det är för få masker som ska läggas upp. Ärmen är nästan 10 cm för liten för ärmhålet. Har sticka klart själva koftan och den passar perfekt.

DROPS Design 04.02.2015 kl. 09:27:

Hej Maria, kom ihåg att du måste räkna med hela bågen i ärmtoppen vilket är mer än 11 cm i varje sida + m som är kvar. Lycka till!

Yoanna Fridell 12.01.2015 - 23:27:

Hej ok, tack för svaret, på alla andra mått har jag den minsta storleken förutom bysten där jag får storlek L.....Vet verkligen inte vilken storlek som blir bäst då? Ska jag ta den minsta och öka vid byst?

DROPS Design 13.01.2015 kl. 13:06:

Hej Yoanna. Ja, jeg ville nok strikke den lille störrelse og pröv den paa undervejs. Hvis det saa er nödvendigt, ville jeg tage ud ved bysten til den store störrelse i bredden.

Yoanna Fridell 11.01.2015 - 17:20:

Hej jag förstår inte hur jag ska räkna ut vilken stl jag ska välja?? Strecket som går över bysten menar att jag ska ha stl L vilket är absurt?! Jag är stl 34-36 i vanliga fall. Eller är det under bysten jag ska gå efter när jag mäter?

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 16:23:

Hej Yoanna. Du skal maale lige hen over brystet. I str L er omkredsen paa denne model er 94 cm. Den maa gerne sidde lidt stramt over brystet som det ses paa billedet. Kontroleer ogsaa laengden total, skulderbredde og aermelaengde. God fornöjelse
