Thank you so much for your reply. I don't think I asked my question clearly. I have 35 stitches on my needles but need 51 to do the next step. When it say M1 I am following the KKPP pattern listed at the bottom. Thanks, Sue

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 11:04:

Dear Mrs Sulliva, you have 35 sts on needle and work: 6 sts garter st, M.1 over the next 22 sts and slip the last 16 of these sts on a st holder = 6 sts in M.1 remain on needle, work M.1 over the next 6 sts and 1 edge st = there are now 19 sts on the needle + 16 sts on a st holder. On next row, cast on 16 sts over the 16 sts on the st holder = 35 sts again. This video is showing how to make this opening for pocket. Happy knitting!

Sue Sullivan 12.01.2019 - 04:33:

Hi,I am making the 6/9 mo size. I casted on 35 stitches. Then it says “when a piece measures...6 band stitches, M1 over 22 stitches, skip the last 16 on a stitch holder, continue M1 over 6 stitches, then 1 garter stitch. That’s 51 stitches. Would you explain what I am misunderstanding ? \r\nThanks! \r\nSue

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 13:24:

Dear Mrs Sullivan, you work M.1 over the next 22 sts and slip the last 16 of these 22 sts on a st holder, and work M1 over the next 6 sts. Happy knitting!

Audrey 09.12.2018 - 02:43:

Ça serait une bonne idée de faire un tutoriel pour ce modèle. C'est vraiment difficile à comprendre les explications. Ça aiderait beaucoup de voir.

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 10:51:

Bonjour Audrey, On tricote ensuite le devant gauche en montant les mailles de la manche, puis on tricote le devant gauche (et la manche), on monte les mailles de l'encolure dos, on tricote les mailles du devant droit (et la manche) et on tricote de haut en bas (en rabattant les mailles des manches). N'hésitez pas à utiliser cette rubrique pour poser votre question, ce que vous ne comprenez pas, la taille que vous tricotez etc. Ce modèle se tricote en commençant par le devant droit, on monte les mailles de la manche et on met en attente. Bon tricot!

Julia 20.11.2018 - 17:11:

Wie stricke ich über die zugenommen Maschen nach der Zunahme für den Ärmel? Ich habe nun 5 Maschen angeschlagen und frage mich ob ich in der Rückreihe jetzt Krausripp oder das Muster Stricke. Wobei für das Muster eine Masche Zuviel auf der Nadel liegt. Danke vielmals!!!

DROPS Design 21.11.2018 kl. 08:17:

Liebe Julia, die ersten Maschen für den Ärmel stricken Sie im Muster, und wenn alle Maschen für den Ärmel zugenommen/angeschlagen sind, stricken Sie 6 Maschen kraus rechts für den Ärmel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Linds 31.10.2018 - 22:47:

Hei😄 Nå har jeg begynt på bakstykket på jakka og i tenksten står det: Fortsett slik det er strikket 2 riller (= 4 p) over de midterste 26-26-30 (30-34) m. Deretter fortsettes M.1 som før over alle m med 6 m rille i hver side til ermkanter. Når arb måler 7½-8-8 (8½-8½) cm fra merket på skulderen felles det nå på beg av hver p i hver side  Det jeg lurer på er: hvor skal merket til skuldrene sitte?

DROPS Design 01.11.2018 kl. 07:58:

Hei Linds, Merket sitter 1 cm før avslutning på forstykket på begge sidene. Videre måler du bakstykket fra disse merkene. God fornøyelse!

Audrey 07.10.2018 - 13:33:

Je ne comprends toujours pas comment faire les augmentations de la manche. Est-ce qu'il faut les faire uniquement sur les rangs endroit? Pas sur les rangs envers?

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Audrey, quand on tricote le devant droit, on monte les mailles de la manche en fin de rang sur l'endroit (= fin de rang sur le côté = à gauche, vu sur l'endroit) soit tous les 2 rangs au total. Pour le devant gauche, vous monterez les mailles en fin de rang sur l'envers (= à droite, vu sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Marie 07.10.2018 - 10:04:

Bonjour , je relève une erreur dans la quantité de laine estimée pour ce modèle , il nécessite que 150 g pour le réaliser en laine mérino extra fine . Cordialement

Audrey 03.10.2018 - 04:22:

Pour les augmentations de la manche, est-ce que ça veux dire qu'on augmente de 5 m en fin de rang sur l'endroit et qu'on réaugmente de 5 m tout de suite après en début de rang sur l'envers?

DROPS Design 03.10.2018 kl. 08:01:

Bonjour Audrey, pour le devant droit, les mailles de la manche seront montées à la fin de chaque rang sur l'endroit (= côté opposé aux mailles de bordure devant). Bon tricot!

Bernadette Varlet 10.09.2018 - 10:18:

Bonjour Madame, Pourriez-vous me dire SVP s'il est possible de bloquer un ouvrage (écharpe motif dentelle) tricotée en mérino extra fine ? Quelle technique doit-on employer ? Avec mes remerciements Cordialement

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 10:55:

Bonjour Mme Varlet, vous pouvez simplement l'humidifier et le poser à plat aux mesures finales avec des épingles si besoin et le laisser sécher ainsi. N'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone, on pourra certainement vous donner des astuces ou conseils supplémentaires précis et plus détaillés en fonction de ce que vous avez réalisé. Bon tricot!

Charley 27.08.2018 - 22:58:

Hi there, Just have a question about the increasing for the sleeve. I am a little confused as it says increase 5 sts 5 times, 7 sts 1 time, and 21 sts 1 time (for the size I'm knitting). Do these cast ons all occur at the same time? And the 5 sts get repeated the next few rows? Hope my question makes sense. Thank you!

DROPS Design 28.08.2018 kl. 01:23:

Dear Charley, no the cast ons do not happen all at the same time, but it means that you cast on 5 stitches at the end of the row. Repeat at the end next row, etc 5 times all together, then cast on 7 new stitches, once, then at the end of the next row 21 stitches. I hope this helped. Happy knitting!
