JudiS 30.01.2019 - 20:52:

Confused on sleeve- "continue to bind off .. at beg of every row in each side"- am I binding off on both edges of one row or just the beg of every row? "Then bind off 2 its in each side until piece measures..."- is that 4 stitches per row or 2 stitches for 2 rows? Finally, after the 2 sts per row, the piece measure 9 3/4", "bind of 3 sos 1 time in each side, now piece measures 10 1/4"- 2 rows does not equal 1/2". What's missing to bring piece to 10 1/4"? Thanks!

DROPS Design 31.01.2019 kl. 08:15:

Dear JudiS, you will bind off 2 sts at the beginning of each row both from RS and from WS: work 1 RS row binding off the first 2 sts, turn and work 1 WS row binding off the first 2 sts = 2 sts have been bound off on each side. Repeat these 2 rows until sleeve measures 9 84" = 25 cm in 3rd size (the number of times will depend on your tension in height), then bind off 3 sts at the beg of next 2 rows (= 3 sts at the beg of next RS row + 3 sts at the beg of next WS row). Sleeve should now measure 26 cm /10.24" . Happy knitting!

😜har hittat svaret själv! Har aldrig stickat på detta sättet. Ser framemot att se resultatet.

Jenny Bansch 07.05.2018 - 22:08:

När ska jag sticka knapphål?

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 13:36:

Hej Jenny, det gör du när du stickar HÖGER FRAMKANT, efter monteringen. Lycka till :)

CARLA KOK 05.01.2018 - 14:16:

Hallo ik wil dit vestje breien maar kan ik dat ook gewoon op 2 naalden breien... kun je me dan vertellen hoe ik dat doe...gr carla kok

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 10:02:

Hallo Carla, Dat zou kunnen door het voor -en achterpand op te splitsen en later in de zijkant aan elkaar te naaien. Via deze link vind je informatie over het aanpassen van een patroon van rondebreinaalden naar rechte naalden.

Hi, for the diagram M.1,reading it vertically means from the right side and up the diagram? BR/Roman

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 09:38:

Dear Roman, start reading diagram beginning in the bottom corner on the right side and read towards the left from RS (and from the left towards the right from RS). Happy knitting!

Louise Odendaal 22.10.2017 - 19:30:

Hi there. When knitting the rib, do I reverse the pattern on the wrong side rows, so that actually looks like a rib? ROW 1 (RS): K1, P2, *K10, P4* ROW 2 (WS): K1, K2, *P10, K4* ? Thank you

DROPS Design 22.10.2017 kl. 20:26:

Dear Louise, yes, when you knit the ribbing, on the wrong side rows, you knit stitches as they show themselves.So, if you see a stitch that looks like a purl (it was done as a knit stitch from the RS, you should knit it as a purl. Happy Knitting!

Roman 18.09.2017 - 12:19:

Hi, "Work 1 row from WS with K over K and P over P. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. " unfortunately i think that my work ended on RS not WS, but the count is correct the remaining is 170 st on the needles. don't know what to do?? Regards, Roman

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 13:01:

Dear Roman, last dec row is made from RS = 170 sts, work next row from WS with K over K and P over P, then switch to needle size 3 mm and K 1 row from RS dec evenly. Happy knitting!

Roman 02.09.2017 - 08:25:

Hi. The video is not helping, as my first st on the row is knitting, so how i do that as i casted on and the thread in on the left side? Regards. Roman

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 09:50:

Dear Roman, cast on the stitches with your usual technique (or find more here) then turn work and the first st you will now work is the last you cast on, work this stitch as explained in the pattern, video is showing the technique. Happy knitting!

Roman 27.08.2017 - 11:31:

Hello Roman. It's suggested to work on circular needles, but you work backwards and forward, as if you were using straight needles. So to work on WS you just turn the work with the wrong side towards you, and knit the return row as stated. Happy knitting! Hi, for the above will it differ in something , what i mean is the needles going to be switched or just turning the work inside out? Regards, Roman

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 11:34:

Dear Roman, the video below shows how to work back and forth on circular needle. Happy knitting!

Roman 26.08.2017 - 05:01:

How to work WS on circular needle?? Thats the confusing thing. Regards

DROPS Design 26.08.2017 kl. 09:02:
