Boa tarde. Gostaria de saber com quantos pontos a manga é finalizada? As medidas da altura da manga em cm para começar o arremate está invertida (maior para o menor) ou é isso mesmo? Achei que as costas ficou muito cavada e a costura vai ficar muito recuada (semelhante ao Raglam). Porém na fotografia a blusa tem ombro tradicional.

Bom dia, Precisamos saber que tamanho está a tricotar. Para as medidas da manga, são 58 ou 59 cm de altura, mais 16 cm de barra. Que agulha usou? E usou fio DROPS? É preciso não esquecer de que deve conferir sempre a amostra e que os resultados finais dos modelos são garantidos somente com fios DROPS.

When I start the front panels (working on the back now) I would like to knit the button bands at the same time. Will it be easy to adapt to incorporate the button band in seed stitch? I haven't made buttonholes for a long time but I really don't like picking up stitches and am looking for a simpler way. Thank you.

Dear Kate, you can take inspiration from a jacket with the same tension and the buttonband knit tog with front pieces, and open the buttonholes evenly along front piece while you work (starting with front piece without buttonholes may help you to distribute buttonholes on 2nd front piece). You are welcome to request further assistance from the store where you bought your yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

some directions seem to be missing. What comes before the equal sign (=) in front of the words knit and pearl, and on the pattern, what does M.2 and M.1 mean, and some of those directions are not in english. Thank you!
