I have the same problem as olga rideout and verena uebler... could you please answer?

Dear Mrs Wilson, diagram will be checked, it looks like in M.1 you have to K from WS on row 2 and 4. Happy knitting!

Mønsteret i oppskriften er jo feil. X eksisterer ikke - og den uthevede firkantruten går jeg ut fra skal være X. Fint om dere kan rette dette.

Hallo, ich habe Drops Heft NR 21 gekauft, dazu die Alpaca Wolle. Ich wollte Jäckchen und Hose (21-24 & 21-26) stricken, ich schaffe es nicht. bin nicht mehr ganz jung. Haben sie evtl. zu dieser Wolle eine ganz einfache Strickanleitung ohne zu kompliziertes Muster für Jäckchen und Hose und evtl. auch noch Schuhe? Inzwischen habe ich für CHF 40.00 Hefte gekauft, möchte dies nicht mehr. vielleicht können sie mir ja helfen. Danke und herzliche Grüsse Esther Maissen

Liebe Frau Maissen, wir haben sehr viele schlichte Modelle in unserer Musterdatenbank, Sie müssen keine weiteren Hefte kaufen. Drucken Sie sich einfach das gewünschte Modell aus.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, bei den Babyschuhen "Confetti" beim Mustersatz 1 verstehe ich nicht, wie die kleinen Quadrate in Reihe zwei zu stricken sind. Würden Sie mir das bitte sagen? Vielen Dank im voraus, Verena Uebler

The diagram M.1 shows on the first row squares but no mention in the explanation to pattern diagram what the squares represent. The explanation shows an "X" as K from WS
