Which is the "right" or outer side? The knit side or the purl? I can't tell from the picture and the pattern doesn't specify. Thanks.

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 17:08:

Dear Katie, the right side will be the knit side. Happy knitting!

Jeg er i tvivl om om ud og indtagningerne på forstykkerne. Udtagningerne til sjalskraven er det efter at have strikket 1 maske og er indtagningerne efter at have strikket de 10 retmasker?

DROPS Design 22.11.2016 kl. 15:54:

Hej Helle. Ja, det er korrekt.

Bonjour, Je réalise actuellement le modèle DROPS 138-10 et je suis bloquée à la phase de l'aasemblage du col. Je ne visualise pas comment "coudre le col au milieu dos en grafting" ni "assembler le col à l'encolure dos". Un grand merci par avance à toutes les personnes qui me donneront leurs conseils

DROPS Design 21.05.2014 kl. 08:29:

Bonjour Mme Clairambault, assemblez chaque demi-col (devant gauche+ devant droit) ensemble, puis cousez le col à l'encolure dos. Voici un exemple en vidéo de ce type de col (sans les rangs raccourcis que vous avez fait, mais c'est la même idée). Bon tricot!

Katherine 03.06.2012 - 16:20:

J'adopte et je vais essayer de la faire rapidement pour cet été

Gunvor B 27.02.2012 - 10:16:

Mycket fin och praktisk vårtröja.

Abuela 26.02.2012 - 06:05:

Tyylikäs ja sopivan väljä ja helppo malli. Kiva kaula-aukko.

Bonnie Kaake 02.02.2012 - 01:25:

WOW! I would make this one multiple times!!! I am dreaming of the colors and yarn possibilities now!

Lynda 13.01.2012 - 17:56:
