Buongiorno, per fare questo modello come devo leggere lo schema ?\r\nDall\'alto verso il basso? sinistra verso destra? Scusate ma non ho mai usato schemi . Grazie

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 12:07:

Buongiorno Valentina, i diagrammi si leggono dal basso verso l'alto e da destra verso sinistra, quindi può partire dall'angolo in basso a destra. Buon lavoro!

Heyy...is there a size chart anywhere around the Drops site? I would like to make this one as a present, but the sizes S-XXXL don't really tell the true size. I know the bust size of the person, so a size chart in cm would be very useful.

DROPS Design 28.04.2014 kl. 12:37:

Hi! Unfortunately this pattern doesn´t have a size chart. You can use the gauge to tell the size in cm.

Ik snap hoe het patroon in elkaar zit. Breien als een sjaal? Hoe zit het met de onderkant? Er zit geen naad in m.a. MVG An Verdult

De onderkant (aan de achterkant) is het midden van de "sjaal". Daarna leidt u de uiteinden over de borst, naar de schouders, over de schouders heen en zet u de twee uiteinden van de "sjaal" middenachter naast elkaar vast. Zie de foto's.

Bonjour, J'ai réalisé ce modèle (en coton) et je suis très déçue. Je vais le défaire.. Il ne se met pas bien du tout. Mais peut-être est-ce de ma faute? il faudrait tout le temps le tenir comme le modèle le tient sur la photo de présentation. Dommage, c'était un modèle original.

Sehr schöner Bolero, leider ist das Musterdiagramm nacch meiner Meinung seitenverkehrt. Für eine kurze Nachricht wäre ich dankbar. MfG A. Heymann

Vielleicht entsteht der Eindruck, da das Muster vorne von oben nach unten läuft. Sie können der Anleitung genau folgen.

The back is awesome. This pattern has triggered many ideas.

Cida HRodrigues 22.01.2012 - 03:50:

Super fácil e prático.

While I've always loved boleros, the v-neck at the back is really unusual and makes it quite different from the rest.
