Continue with pattern until piece measures approx. 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm (finish with 1 row from WS, i.e. with 2nd or 4th row in diagram M.1). On next row cast off the middle 18-18-18-24-24-24 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately = 46-49-52-52-55-58 sts remain on each shoulder.

Sehr geehrtes Team, woher weiß ich, in welcher Größe ich das favorisierte Modell 138-20 stricken muss - die Maßangaben sind zwar da, aber ich kenne ja nicht die Passform des Modell, weiß also nicht, ob es eng oder locker sitzen soll. Würde mich sehr freuen, wenn Sie mir weiter helfen können:-) Ihnen eine gute Woche und Danke im Voraus!

Sie sehen ja auf dem Foto, wie die Jacke ungefähr sitzen sollte - es ist ein recht locker und luftig sitzendes Modell ohne körperbetonten Schnitt. Wählen Sie die Größe also dementsprechend aus.

Hello, I´m not sure with the two last sentences of the left front, regarding the direction the collar should be ended.I mean in which direction should it go up from the front to the rest or the other way around?I hope anyone understands what I mean. greetz

Dear Sio, when piece measures 44-54 cm (see size) you cast off 49-58 sts for shoulder then continue in garter st over the remaining 14 sts for collar. (See also video for shawl collar below.) When collar measures 8-11 cm, cast off 5 sts at the beg of the next 2 rows worked from RS before casting off all sts. Happy knitting!

Har dere en video der dere viser hvordan man gjør det med ermekantene?

DROPS Design 14.05.2013 kl. 10:02:

Hej Aina. Vi har et par video'er hvordan du plukker om masker langs kanter. Se f.eks her:

Lene Monique Thorsen 12.12.2012 - 18:38:

Kjempefin jakke, men finner ikke ut av hvordan jeg strikker mønsteret M.1 Har dere noen video av dette? Eller noen enklere forklaring på hvordan jeg kan få det til.

DROPS Design 13.12.2012 kl. 16:34:

Du kan se video om et kast og ogsaa hvordan du skal tage ind (ta 1 m løst av p som om den strikkes rett, 2 rett sammen, løft den løse m over). Se minske: 1 m og minske: 2 m sammen.
