Bonjour, je ne comprends pas bien les mesures du diagramme. J'ai mesuré un bras de la personne pour qui je veux faire ce modèle, qui est un homme assez costaud et de taille moyenne. De l'épaule au poignet, son bras mesure 54 cm. Hors sur le diagramme, dans les mesures épaule-poignet, ça commence à 65 cm... Il y a quelque chose de pas logique il me semble... Merci !

DROPS Design 15.08.2019 kl. 10:24:

Bonjour Isaline, pour trouver la taille idéale, mesurez un pull similaire qui lui va et qu'il aime, vous pourrez ensuite ajuster si besoin les différentes longueurs. Votre magasin DROPS pourra volontiers vous assister, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Kathy 01.07.2019 - 16:12:

Hola, necesito ayuda con el aumento que hay que hacer en el cuerpo. Entiendo que el la primera fila hago un aumento al principio y después de marcar ciertos números, pero en la segunda fila no entiendo bien a donde debo de hacer el aumento. Y luego dice terminar los aumentos dividir la pieza en los MP para continuar por separado.Gracias por su ayuda.

DROPS Design 10.07.2019 kl. 23:45:

Hola Kathy. Son los aumentos en los lados. Primero marcamos los lados con los marcapuntos (según la talla). Aumentamos (trabajando una lazada) a cada lado del marcapuntos. En total, se aumentan 4 puntos en la vuelta. los marcapuntos suben con la labor y los siguientes aumentos se trabajan de la misma manera (= 1 lazada a cada lado del marcapuntos) = 4 puntos aumentados en la vuelta en total.

Jan Stanford 17.06.2019 - 21:58:

Do you have any videos on how to do the following: Strap Twine 2 threads of 40 cm medium grey and fold them double. Make another strap the same way. Fasten the straps approx. 4 and 11 cm up from bottom edge on right collar (approx. 1 cm from edge mid front). Pull the threads through the collar and fasten the ends on the back. Sew button on left collar approx. 2 and 4 cm in from seam for left front piece.

DROPS Design 18.06.2019 kl. 08:36:

Dear Mrs Stanford, this video shows how to make a twisted string for the buttonloops, make 2 similar strings and fold them double (to make a loop where you can button the button) and sew the end of strings on the edge of the right collar inserting the ends of buttonloops from RS towards WS, tie the ends tog from WS. Sew buttons facing the buttonloops on the left collar. Happy assembly!

Jan Stanford 10.06.2019 - 15:59:

Please advise if you have any videos to demonstrate how to do a Kitchener stitch for a garter stitch - to close the back of the collar on this sweater - and do you think this would be a recommended way to close the back of the collar on this project - thank you Jan

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 11:53:

Dear Mrs Stanford, this video shows how to graft sts together - just make sure that the last row worked on both collar is a WS row, so that you can just follow the video, working from RS. Happy knitting!

Jan Stanford 08.06.2019 - 13:38:

Please advise if it would work to close the back of the collar by using a Kitchener stitch on the live stitches rather than casting off and joining that edge - thought Kitchener might be a preferable closure - what are your thoughts ??

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 10:04:

Dear Mrs Stanford, you can join the both collars with a kitchener for a less visible seam. Happy knitting!

Jan Stanford 06.06.2019 - 16:59:

It appears the length of the neck - per your schematic diagram is the same as the length of Pattern 1 length instructions for Rt collar / Lt collar - ie 23 cm is 9" - so if my opening is 9.25 inches in length - shouldn't I do Pattern 1 for 9.25" prior to starting the garter stitch / short row part of the collar - if you check out the different sizes on the schematic diagram and the instructions for Pattern 1 - they seem to match

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 08:56:

Dear Mrs Stanford; I'll checked out and you are right, if your neckline is 9,25" work in pattern until collar measures 9,25" (= along whole neckline), then start garter stitch and short rows. Happy knitting!

Jan Stanford 06.06.2019 - 14:34:

Thanks for your prompt reply -should the Pattern 1 on the Rt collar end at the shoulder - my neck opening appears slightly longer that 9" by 1/4" or so - should I rework Pattern 1 so it reaches to where the shoulder seam is and the garter stitch / short rows will attach from shoulder seam to the back of the neck - thank you

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 15:00:

Dear Mrs Stanford, well if your tension match and you followed the pattern, the collar should be then worked in pattern for 9" (before short rows and garter stitch) and then continue in garter stitch with short rows until it measures 4" from marker (= 13" altogether). You can see on the second picture where the section in garter stitch starts (on the folded part of the collar). Happy knitting!

Jan Stanford 05.06.2019 - 21:16:

I am totally confused how to do the right collar - working on size XXL - have patterned for 9" as directed - placed marker at end of RS row ?? - worked garter st over 2 rows all st - then what - says work 2 rows over outermost 20 st ......??? Where should the marker be ?? Do I use a wrap and turn or what do I do next - I knit English style o I find the videos confusing - please help - thank you :-)

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 09:57:

Dear Mrs Stanford, after you have worked for 9" and inserted the marker, continue now in garter stitch with short rows (use the technique you are used to) to shape the shawl collar (starting from the neck towards shoulder): 2 rows over all sts, 2 rows over the first 20 sts and repeat these 4 rows until piece measures 4" on the shortest side (= towards neck) from marker. Happy knitting!

Charlotte 16.03.2019 - 20:18:

Bonjour, je fais le pull en L. J’ai un soucis avec les premières augmentations à 16cm. Je dois faire : tricoter la dernière maille avant le marqueur, 1 jeté, glisser le marqueur, 1 jeté, tricoter la première maille après le marqueur ?

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Charlotte. Si le marqueur se trouve dans la maille (et non entre les mailles), vous travaillez comme suit: tricoter la dernière maille avant le marqueur, 1 jeté, tricotez la maile avec marqueur, 1 jeté, tricoter la première maille après le marqueur (2 mailles augmentees) > reperer cela a cote du deuxieme marqueur. Bon travail!
