This looks amazing. The problem is I don't see where the decreases are in M2. to get me to from 304 to 266 at the end. What am I missing? Thank you very much!

DROPS Design 15.05.2019 kl. 06:40:

Dear Linneaa, on the last round of M.2 there are 2 decrease without any YOs, so 2x17 repetitions = 34 decreased sts, and you'll reach 266 from 304. Happy knitting!

Yvette 06.01.2019 - 19:09:

Hi! After i was done with the M1 diagram i ended up with 270 sts, not 256! What did i do wrong? I casted on 288 at the beginning. Please help!

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:51:

Dear Yvette, you started with 288 sts and work M.1 (= 18 sts) a total of 16 times in the round. On the first round in M.1 you dec 2 sts in each M.1 (= 2 sts x 16 repeats = 32 sts are decreased) = 16 sts remain in each M.1 x 16 = 256 sts. Happy knitting!

Je viens de terminer ce modèle. Très agréable à tricoter et beau rendu. Pour la taille S, il faut compter 10 pelotes soit 500 g et non 450. Merci

Michèle 28.07.2018 - 15:06:

Bonjour, puisje commencer ce modèle jade 138-4 et les autres débutants par le haut à partir du bas et inversé les grilles? Bonne journée et merci.

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 08:59:

Bonjour Michèle, ce modèle précisément se tricote de bas en haut, vous pouvez simplement suivre les explications. Bon tricot!

Paola 25.05.2018 - 20:04:

Sto facendo il modello con un filato più sottile lo lavoro coi ferri 3 mi potreste dire che taglia dovrei fare per ottenere una taglia l xl grazie

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 20:49:

Buonasera Paola. Quando si modifica la misura dei ferri, molto probabilmente cambia anche il suo campione rispetto a quello indicato nel modello. Riproporzionando in base al suo campione, può individuare la taglia giusta da seguire. Per un aiuto così specifico, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Daniela 02.04.2018 - 13:59:

Hallo! Dies soll mein erstes gestricktes Kleid werden. Da ich noch nichts nach Diagramm gestrickt habe, wollte ich fragen ob man die Diagramme zu diesem Kleid von unten nach oben, oder von oben nach unten liest.

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 08:59:

Liebe Daniela, Diagramme lesen Sie von unten nach oben, ab den unteren Ecke rechts anfangen und jede Runde rechts nach links lesen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Graziella 03.01.2018 - 19:41:

Hi - love the look of this. However, pattern refers to M1 diagram. There isn’t an M1 but there are 2 M3 diagrams. Which one is M1, please?

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 15:04:

Dear Graziella, you will find the M.1 pattern at the very bottom of the page, links to the measurement chart (just below M.2), it's a 2 row diagram. Happy knitting!

Britta 26.08.2017 - 13:10:

Thanks for this wonderful dress pattern! ❤ I was wobderung: If I wanted to make this a bit longer (just to cover the knees) how much more wool would I need for size M? Do you know? Thanks in advance! Really looking forward to this and might actually wear it at a wedding 😄

DROPS Design 27.08.2017 kl. 11:37:

Dear Britta, thank you for very kind feedback - we are happy to hear that you like our pattern(s) :-) For a longer dress 1-2 balls will be enough. Happy knitting!

Cowé 06.04.2016 - 19:47:

Cowé 06.04.2016 - 18:35:
