Hello: I would like to make this top longer (about 60 cm). Do you have any helpful tips/advice as to adjusting the pattern. My original plan is just do 20 cm instead of 7 at the very beginning befor dec. I plan to use 100% linen yarn for M size. Thank you!

Nydelig genser. Strikket den i Belle. Strikker i str. XL og måtte legge til 10 m ekstra på ermkanten for at armene ikke skulle bli for stramme. Feller av 10 i hver ende i steden for 5.

Gdzie na stronie mogę znaleźć tabelkę rozmiarów? Bo nie wiem, jaki rozmiar odpowiada jakim wymiarom...

Antonella 26.06.2015 - 16:05:

E' normale che il lavoro, che ora è alto circa 20 cm, si arrotoli sul fondo?

DROPS Design 26.06.2015 kl. 18:22:

Buongiorno Antonella, il top è lavorato principalmente a maglia rasata ed è normale che tenda ad arrotolarsi sul fondo; il bordino a maglia legaccio dovrebbe aiutare ad evitarlo, in ogni caso dopo il bloccaggio questo problema dovrebbe sparire. Buon lavoro!

Antonella 04.06.2015 - 18:32:

Lavoro a maglia da molti anni ma uso solo i ferri dritti. Vorrei cimentarmi con i ferri circolari. Secondo voi posso iniziare ad usarli provando con questo modello o è troppo difficile? Eventualmente potreste consigliarmi altri modelli estivi più semplici? Grazie

DROPS Design 05.06.2015 kl. 08:54:

Buongiorno Antonella. Il modello da lei scelto non presenta difficoltà particolari per chi non ha mai lavorato in tondo. Sulla striscia grigia, a destra della fotografia, cliccando sulla voce Video, trova i video che possono aiutarla nella realizzazione del modello. Ci può riscrivere dovesse incontrare delle difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Buenas tardes, por favor,¿me podrian decir si este modelo se podria hacer con agujas rectas? Si fuese asi,¿como podria incorporarle las mangas al estar por separado delantero y espalda para hacer el canesu? Muchas gracias por su atencion, reciban un cordial saludo.

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 08:50:

Hola Milagros, este modelo no se puede trabajar con agujas rectas debido al nº de pts y a que se trabaja en redondo. La única opción alternativa es trabajar con 4 agujas de doble punta.

Hallo! Wie ist das mit den Größen? S = 34/36? M = 38/40? usw? Danke

DROPS Design 01.07.2014 kl. 10:16:

Liebe Irmgard, am besten orientieren Sie sich für die Größe an der Maßskizze unter der Anleitung, dort finden Sie alle cm-Angaben nach Größen sortiert.

Anne 26.05.2014 - 14:55:

Merci pour ce ravissant modèle aussi simple que rapide à réaliser. TRES court, j'ai ralongé le buste de 6cm à la base. Ainsi, il est juste parfait!
