When a total of 4 rows in rib have been worked, continue with diagram M.1 with 6 band sts in garter st towards mid front and 1 edge st in garter st in the side.

Then continue diagram M.1 as before over all sts with 6 sts in garter st in each side for sleeve edges.

Is that a correction ? The pattern indicates 5 sts 5 times, 7 sts twice and 22 sts Size 2

Ans 23.08.2019 - 10:05:

Goedendag, is de in het patroon opgegeven stekenverhouding voor een proeflapje in oatroon M1 of in tricotsteek? Bedankt alvast voor het antwoord. Met vriendelijke groet

Manon Goulet 23.08.2019 - 06:46:

I would like to have the measurement foe the sleeve only . I’m knitting size 2. It appears to be very long.

DROPS Design 23.08.2019 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Goulet, you cast on for each sleeve: 5 sts 4 times + 7 st 1 time + 24 sts 1 time = it should be approx. 24 cm. Remember that the bottom 5 cm on each sleeve will be folded over. Happy knitting!

France Boutin 25.07.2019 - 04:28:

Es-ce que ce patron existe en francais ou il est juste en anglais

DROPS Design 25.07.2019 kl. 07:19:

Bonjour! Le modele est disponible aussi en francais. Il faut changer de langue dans le menu deroulant (a gauche). Bon travail!

Uschi 18.07.2019 - 22:39:

Müsste bei der linken Seite nicht noch vermerkt werden, dass es keine Knopflöcher gearbeitet werden müssen?

DROPS Design 19.07.2019 kl. 08:05:

Liebe Ushi, also ja genau, beim linken Vorderteil soll man keine Knopflöcher arbeiten, das schreiben wir noch in der deutschen Anleitung dazu. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Rebecca 09.07.2019 - 12:20:

Der er noget jeg ikke helt forstår i opskrifter, for bliver i tvivl om jeg skal tage ud til ærmet, samtidig med at jeg laver v-halsen?

Audrey 15.05.2019 - 23:46:

Je n'avais pas bien compris comment rabattre les mailles des manches et j'ai rabattu au début et à la fin de mon rang, mais j'ai laissé la dernière boucle et pas coupé le fil. Comment puis-je réparer mon erreur?

DROPS Design 16.05.2019 kl. 09:37:

Bonjour Audrey, vous devez rabattre les mailles des manches au début de chaque rang de chaque côté: vous rabattez d'abord les 25-24-21 (22-27) premières m en début de rang sur l'endroit, tricotez le rang jusqu'à la fin, tournez et rabattez les 25-24-21 (22-27) premières m sur l'envers, tournez et tricotez le rang jusqu'à la fin, continuez ainsi en rabattant de chaque côté (en début de rang sur l'endroit et en début de rang sur l'envers): 0-1-1 (2-3) fois 7 m et 4-4-5 (5-5) fois 5 m. Bon tricot!

Audrey 14.05.2019 - 03:41:

Quand on rabat les mailles des manches (début et fin de rang), est-ce que ça implique de couper le fil à la fin de chaque rang ou il y a une autre façon de faire?

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 08:12:

Bonjour Audrey, vous devez rabattre les mailles des manches au début de chaque rang. Le fil ne doit pas etre coupe. Bon tricot!

Shelley 02.04.2019 - 00:36:

Concerning your answer to my question. Still not sure. Because I am casting on an odd number of stitches and the pattern uses an even number. If I knit the previous garter stitch that will make the pattern extra wide at that point since I would have to do 3 knits in a row?

DROPS Design 02.04.2019 kl. 10:28:

Dear Shelley, after you have cast on the first 5 new sts, work them at the beginning of the row in pattern (adjusting to the previous row so that the pattern will still fit), the previous edge stitch will be worked in pattern, ie all sts are now worked in pattern except the 6 front band sts. When all stitches for sleeve has been cast on, continue with 6 front band sts as before and the last 6 new sts for sleeve in garter stitch, and pattern as before over the remaining stitches. Happy knitting!

Shelley 28.03.2019 - 22:47:

I'm a little confused. I cast on 5 stitches for sleeve at end of row. Then turn. If i follow pattern i would knit 1 garter stitch, then start kkpp pattern. But then i would reach garter stitch from previous row. Do I knit that as garter then go back to M1 pattern?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 10:03:

Dear Shelly, on first row over the new sts, you work the first st in garter stitch, then work the next stitches in pattern as before, make sure the M.1 pattern will continue over the middle stitches as before - the previous edge stitch will also be worked in M.1. Happy knitting!
