Bonjour, Merci pour votre réponse. Mon commentaire concernait la portion de la manche. Puisque nous devons lire les diagrammes de même façon, que ce soit en faisant M2 ou ceux de la manche, soit end/env, j'ai obtenu un style tout à fait différent sur la portion de la manche que ce que je vois sur le modèle de la photo. La manche que je fais me donne un point de riz. Ce qui n'est pas le cas pour la manche du modèle de la photo. C'est tout de même très joli.

Diane 07.11.2015 - 12:51:

Bonjour, je termine la seconde moitié de cette veste et je remarque que le motif de la manche me donne un point de riz, avec un jour régulier. C'est tres joli mais bien différent du modèle de la photo. Est-ce que la lecture des mailles pour la section des manches devrait être différente de M.2 pour qu'elles soient comme celles de la photo? Quoi qu'il en soit, je trouve que mon tricot est vraiment très beau! Merci

DROPS Design 09.11.2015 kl. 11:38:

Bonjour Diane, dans M.2, on n'a pas de point de riz, mais 2 m env au début, 2 m env au milieu et 2 m env à la fin - les cases blanches se tricotent en jersey endroit. Bon tricot!

Erica 29.10.2015 - 00:36:

I noticed that the sizing (both in the description and the diagram) lists the same size twice in a row, three times over, rather than increasing in sizes. It looks like this : 34½"-34½"-43½"-43½"-51"-51" Is this correct or are there actually 6 different sizes?

DROPS Design 29.10.2015 kl. 09:23:

Dear Erica, there are 6 different sizes - see measurement chart in cm (convert here into inc) - and read more about measurement chart here. Happy knitting!

Diane 10.10.2015 - 02:54:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas comment je dois faire le diagramme M1 dans la manche de la demi gauche de la veste. On dit "au début des rangs suivants, rabattre 1 m. Répéter ces diminutions d'1 m. Au début... Comment dois-je faire pour conserver le même motif en faisant ces diminutions? Je m'y suis repris à 2 fois et je bloque toujours à cet endroit! Merci pour vos conseils toujours appréciés.

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 09:18:

Bonjour Diane, pendant les diminutions de la manche, tricotez les m de M.1 comme elles se présentent (end/env), mais sans tricoter le jour du milieu après avoir diminué la 1ère de ces 2 m end pour que le nombre de m soit juste. Bon tricot!

Mimma 10.07.2015 - 21:09:

Thank you for answering but what about the bottom part of the cardigan I have knitted it 2 and it does not look lie the picture I appreciate if you could help me as I like it for my daughter Thank you Mimma

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 09:50:

Dear Mimma, the bottom part (in stockinette) of front piece is cast on at the end of row 5 (the bottom part - in stockinette - on back piece is worked from the beg: 31-37 sts in st st at the end of row from RS). Happy knitting!

Mimma 09.07.2015 - 21:00:

Please explain better this pattern would like the back of this pattern to explain how it looks please and thank you

DROPS Design 10.07.2015 kl. 08:39:

Dear Mimma, you start working the left half-back piece + front piece in 1 piece sideways starting from mid back/mid front towards side/sleeve then work another piece reversed (right half back piece + front piece) and sew them tog in mid back (sew cast on edge tog). Happy knitting!

Diane 07.12.2014 - 14:34:

Je débute cette veste et j'aimerais savoir comment faire pour monter 84 mailles à la fin du rang 5 du demi dos gauche? Merci

DROPS Design 08.12.2014 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Diane, voici en vidéo comment monter des mailles en fin de rang. Bon tricot!

Caterina 14.10.2014 - 14:42:

Salve,è possibile vedere una foto di questo modello anche sul retro del lavoro, per capire come si assembla?grazie

DROPS Design 14.10.2014 kl. 16:00:

Buongiorno Caterina. Purtroppo al momento non è disponibile una fotografia del dietro. Per la confezione può esserle però utile il seguente video: Buon lavoro!

Chantal 05.06.2013 - 02:12:

Bonjour, j'ai de la difficulté avec la couture au milieu du dos, il mentionne à point soignée, de chaque côté j'ai une bordure qui fait comme un point mousse, est-ce que je doit le cacher avec la couture ou cela doit donner comme un ourlet. Merci!

DROPS Design 05.06.2013 kl. 10:42:

Bonjour Chantal, pour faire la couture au milieu dos, vous pouvez vous aider de la vidéo. Si vous ne voulez pas conserver la côte mousse au milieu dos, vous pouvez coudre après ce rang. Bon tricot!
