Work in garter st - Read explanation above - for 2 cm and insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). Then work in stocking st.

Continue until piece measures 47-47-47-47-43-43 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width and longer sleeve cap).

Bij het lijf staat: Minder bij een hoogte van 5 cm ... Bedoelt u vanaf de opzetnaald gemeten 5 cm, of 5 cm in telpatroon gebreid? Alvast dank voor uw antwoord!

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 12:25:

Dag Bloem, Dit is vanaf het begin gemeten, dus vanaf de opzetrand.

Bonnet 23.08.2018 - 18:14:

Merci pour votre réponse. Pour les diminutions et les augmentations, il faut se baser sur quel échantillon? Celui de 28rgs ou de 30rgs?

DROPS Design 24.08.2018 kl. 14:35:

Bonjour Bonnet. Vous allez diminuer à la mesure (en cm) indiquée dans les explications. Bon tricot!

Bonnet 23.08.2018 - 12:20:

Bonjour, je voudrais savoir quel échantillon doit-on prendre en compte pour réaliser l'ouvrage? le jersey : 10cm=28rgs ou le point fantaisie 10cm=30rgs? Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 16:23:

Bonjour Bonnet. Vous devez choisir les aiguilles qui vous donnent 10 cm = 28 rangs en jersey et en même temps 10 cm = 30 rangs suivant le point fantaisie. Bon tricot !

Anna 07.08.2018 - 14:28:

Prachtig patroon, maar M2 wil niet echt lukken. Is er misschien ook een video van M1 en M2 voor dit vest? Alvast dank, Anna

DROPS Design 08.08.2018 kl. 08:36:

Dag Anna, Helaas is er geen video specifiek voor deze trui. Er is wel een algemene instructie over hoe je de teltekening leest. Die vindt je via deze link. Je kunt ook altijd hulp vragen bij de winkel waar je het garen hebt gekocht.

Angie 15.12.2015 - 12:12:

This pattern is very pretty. Do you recommend a warmer type of yarn in this pattern rather than Drops MUSKAT? I would like to make it to wear in the colder weather.

DROPS Design 15.12.2015 kl. 15:27:

Dear Angie, you can use any other yarn group B - see here - calculate here new amount of yarn. Happy knitting!

Pabou 13.12.2015 - 20:17:

Bonjour, je n'arrive pas à faire le motif M.1. Je suis les explications, mais le résultat ne correspond pas au rendu de la photo. Je n'arrive pas à comprendre ce que je ne fais pas correctement : deux mailles envers, deux mailles endroit ensemble, un jeté, deux mailles endroits et deux mailles envers, tout cela sur l'endroit. Je n'ai pas le croisement comme sur la photo, est-ce que quelqu'un peut me guider ?

DROPS Design 14.12.2015 kl. 13:43:

Bonjour Mme Pabou, les 4 m centrales de M.1 se tricotent ainsi sur l'endroit: 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 2 m end et sur l'envers: 2 m ens à l'env, 1 jeté, 2 m env. Le motif se forme ensuite de lui même. Bon tricot!

Gerd Brodén 13.01.2015 - 14:37:

Ska M1 stickas från både rätsidan och avigsidan? Eller ska man ha ett avigt varv emellan?

DROPS Design 14.01.2015 kl. 15:14:

Hej Gerd. M.1 stickas saadan från både rätsidan och avigsidan. Du skal ikke sticka ett avigt varv emellan.

Sabrina 22.11.2014 - 22:39:

Bonjour, je suis en train de réaliser ce modèle et je me demandais s'il fallait bloquer les différents morceaux avant de les assembler afin de mettre en évidence les motifs de mailles ajourées. D'autant plus que la laine que j'ai utilisée est un mélange 52 % acrylique, 40 % laine, 8 % nylon. Merci d'avance pour votre réponse (et pour votre site qui est une source d'inspiration inépuisable)

DROPS Design 24.11.2014 kl. 10:37:

Bonjour Sabrina, bloquer un ouvrage surtout ajouré permet toujours de mettre en valeur les différents motifs. Pour plus d'informations sur le blocage du fil utilisé, merci de bien vouloir prendre contact avec le magasin où vous l'avez acheté. Bon tricot!

Janny 08.11.2014 - 22:36:

In de beschrijving staat dat telpatronen M1 en M2 de goede kant van het werk weer. Zowel de heengaande als de teruggaande naalden zijn weergegeven. Volgens mij zijn bij M1 de teruggaande naalden niet vermeld. Klopt dit? MvG Janny

DROPS Design 10.11.2014 kl. 11:21:

Hoi Janny. Nee, op M.1 zijn zowel de heengaande als de teruggaande naalden vermeld. Er staat ook in de beschrijving van de symbolen hoe je het motief op de verkeerde kant moet breien.

Patricia 15.09.2014 - 18:18:

Modèle terminé depuis 2 jours. Aucun problème dans les explications.Le rendu porté est magnifique. Très belle conception.
