When the piece measures 48-50-51-53 cm bind off the center 10-10-12-12 sts for the neck. Then dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 5 times = 16-16-17-17 sts remain on each shoulder.

After Pattern 1 knit Pattern 2 twice with 1 strand Alaska + 1 strand Glitter. Take away Glitter and knit 2 rows stockinette st with Alaska. Change to Vienna and knit 4 rows garter st. Then continue with Alaska and Pattern 4 to finished measurements.
At the same time when the piece measures 15 cm inc 1 st at each side every 5-4.5-4-3.5 cm a total of 7-8-8-9 times = 52-54-58-60 sts. Knit the increased sts in pattern as you go along.

Hej,jeg vil strikke denne model til min datter,kan i hjælpe mig med hvilken garn jeg skal bruge i stedet for tweed?

DROPS Design 07.05.2014 kl. 10:18:

I stedet for Silke-Tweed kan du bruge fex Alpaca eller andre garner fra garngruppe A som har samme tykkelse. God fornöjelse!

Is het mogelijk dat ik hier geen bruine maar paarse tinten moet gebruiken? Welke combinatie nrs. zijn dat dan? Met wat vervang ik de Silk-Tweed? Alpaca? Welke kleur ? Kan u nog andere kleurcombinaties geven aub?Vroeger bestelde ik bij Dolce Lana maar die stoppen helaas met de verdeling van Drops. Alvast bedankt, Marleen

Het model is gebreid van bruine tinten, ik denk dat het licht op de foto het model wat paars-achtig maakt. Maar je kan kijken op de kleurenoverzichten voor paarse kleuren Alaska en Vienna. Je kan o.a. Silke-Tweed vervangen door Alpaca. Klik op de link Kleurenkaart Silke-Tweed en zie hier alternatieven. Wij hebben ook andere winkels in België en een nieuwe Superstore in België. Zie het overzicht van verkooppunten. Zij helpen u ook graag met het kiezen en opsturen van uw garens. Veel plezier.
