I would like to knit this for a young man whose chest measurement is 40.5 inches. He generally takes a size large, but it looks like he should be between an XL and XXL in this pattern. Is this right? I generally knit right on gauge.

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 08:52:

Dear Mrs Heppner, the best way to find the matching size is to measure one jumper he is liking the shape and compare these measurements to those in the chart. Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Hilde 08.07.2019 - 10:54:

Voor het eerst dat een patroon van Drops zo tegenvalt. ik heb de boorden zonder extra steken gemaakt omdat het anders gaat uitlubberen maar dat is het probleem niet. De mouwen zijn te smal voor de mouwkoppen. ik heb alles tien keer nageteld, nagerekend, nagemeten maar het komt gewoon niet mooi uit. Jammer.

Britt-Mari Persson 28.05.2019 - 13:50:

Ok, tack.

Britt-Mari Persson 28.05.2019 - 13:22:

Hej! Om jag förstått beskrivningen rätt kan jag alltså välja att sticka med rundsticka eller sticka fram och tillbaka? tacksam för svar.

DROPS Design 28.05.2019 kl. 13:40:

Hei Britt-Mari. Bolen strikkes rundt på rundpinne opp til ermhullet. Etter at du har felt av masker til ermhull strikkes forstykket og bakstykket frem og tilbake, hver for seg. Ermene strikkes rundt på rundpinne. Du kan selvfølgelig tilpasse oppskriften til å strikke forstykket og bakstykket frem og tilbake hele veien, og så sy sammen i hver side tilslutt, om du heller ønsker det. God fornøyelse

Si, sto facendo la taglia XXXL . Quando dice: e poi continuare a intrecciare le maglie all'inizio del ferro a ogni lato: 2 maglie per 3 volte (quindi 6 maglie) si riferisce ad un solo lato ? Uguale vale per le 13 m , vanno diminuite insieme alle 6 di un lato o si dovrebbe fare in un giro successivo le 13 ed in un altro ancora le 2m. da ogni lato fino ad arrivare a 67cm? forse lì che ho sbagliato! Molte grazie

DROPS Design 17.04.2019 kl. 16:54:

Buongiorno Luminita. Deve chiudere le maglie da entrambi i lati; all'inizio del ferro, sia nei ferri di andata che in quelli di ritorno. Quindi: intrecciare 2 m per 3 volte da ciascun lato, vuol dire che chiude 6 m sia sul lato destro della manica che sul lato sinistro (in tutto 12 maglie in meno). Poi intreccia 1 m 13 volte da ciascun lato (quindi in tutto 26 maglie in meno) e così via. Buon lavoro!

Luminita 16.04.2019 - 18:47:

Sto facendo le maniche di questo modello, e mi sto rendendo conto che non combacia la manica dallo scalfo in su (l'arrotondamento) con il maglione e non capisco dove ho sbagliato! ho diminuito le prime 6 (le 3 m. da ogni lato del segnapunti) dopo le 6 + 13 = 19 (da un lato) e ho ripetuto dall'altro lato. e poi ho continuato con 2 m ad ogni lato fino a quando il lavoro misura 67 cm. potrebbe cortesemente spiegarmi dove ho sbagliato?

DROPS Design 16.04.2019 kl. 19:09:

Buonasera Luminita, che taglia sta lavorando? Ad esempio per la taglia XXXL a 53 cm deve diminuire 3 maglie a ogni lato del segnapunti (6 maglie totali) e poi continuare a intrecciare le maglie all'inizio del ferro a ogni lato: 2 maglie per 3 volte (quindi 6 maglie) e poi 1 maglia per 13 volte (quindi 26 maglie), poi continuare a intrecciare 2 maglie per lato fino a quando il lavoro misura 67 cm. E poi intrecciare ancora 3 maglie ad ogni lato. Buon lavoro!

Lieke 29.03.2019 - 23:32:

Waarom wordt er geminderd na de boord, het is ook een behoorlijk aantal steken ook?

DROPS Design 31.03.2019 kl. 11:35:

Dag Lieke,

Het ontwerp van dit model is zo dat de boord ongeveer dezelfde wijdte heeft van het kledingstuk. Doordat de boordsteek samentrekt in de breedte wordt er gemeerderd vlak na de boordsteek.

Mai 04.03.2019 - 11:32:

In the description of double seeds st in the back body do not know 2sts · times and 1st · times Do you mean k, k, p, not k, p, k, p

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 12:04:

Dear Mai, I'm not sure what you mean here, on back piece you work with double moss stitch, ie as explained under DOUBLE MOSS STITCH, - the video below shows how to work this pattern. Happy knitting!

Hilde 20.02.2019 - 17:26:

Dank voor uw antwoord maar ik bedoelde juist dat meestal het boord juist met opzet iets strakker is maar in dit model niet. Ik ga toch eerst maar breien zonder extra steken, verder is het namelijk precies het model dat ik zocht.

Hilde 16.02.2019 - 11:28:

Hartelijk dank voor uw antwoord. Ik heb nog een vraag: waarom worden in dit model zoveel extra steken voor het boord opgezet en daarna afgekant? Ik ben bang dat het gaat lubberen.

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 19:27:

Dag Hilde,

Het ontwerp van dit model is zo dat de boord ongeveer dezelfde wijdte heeft van het kledingstuk. Door de boordsteek trekt de boord samen in de breedte en daarom wordt er gemeerderd vlak na de boordsteek.
