Is er geen aparte tekening van het rugpand. Zou het niet mooier geweest zijn als het patroon begint en eindigt met A2?Ook is het patroon niet aangepast aan een grotere of langere maat. Een heel gedoe omdat zelf mooi te verdelen. Wel leuk patroon hoor. Groetjes Mevrouw Bakker.

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 13:12:

Hallo E. Bakker, De afmetingen van het voor- en achterpand, zijn op de v-hals na, verder gelijk, dus deze kunnen in 1 schematekening. Verder is het patroon door onze ontwerpers bedacht met A.2 aan één kant in de confectie maten S t/m XXXL. Je kunt de maat kiezen die het beste in de buurt komt door te vergelijken met een bestaand kledingstuk en evt. naar wens aanpassen, door de hoogte of breedte aan te passen door meer of minder steken op te zetten en te bfreien in de gedeeltes waar geen kabels zitten of meer of minder naalden in de hoogte te breien.

Anne 29.06.2017 - 16:42:

Do the diagrams show both right AND wrong side stitches? Please state how to knit stitches on the wrong side, this is not clear in your instructions. Thanks

DROPS Design 29.06.2017 kl. 17:59:

Dear Anne, yes, diagrams shows ALL rows in pattern, seen from right side (RS). Please, see instructions above diagrams - RS = right side, WS = wrong side. When you knit cables, purl all stitches on the wrong side. Happy knitting!

Je trouve dommage que l'on ne puisse pas voir le dos du gilet au niveau des épaules. Les cheveux cache tout. J'aurai aimé voir le motif près des épaules.

Birthe Bjerg 14.11.2015 - 21:10:

Det er ærgerligt at modellens lange - flotte, for det er det - hår, forhindrer os i at se hvordan afslutningen på ryggen er. Måske vil man være helt vild med den, hvis man ellers kunne se den. Fotografen har misforstået opgaven. Kan desværre ikke kaldes et spørgsmål.

Anne-Marie 08.02.2014 - 14:01:

Hej! Vad jag kan se har det blivit ett fel i diagrammet. Mönster A1 på varv 47. Mvh Anne-Marie

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 00:20:

Hej, vi ser inte felet, vad är det som är fel där? Notera det varit en rättelse på diagram symbol 4 och 5 på mönstret online. Det är tyvärr ett fel i de tryckta katalogerna.

Nadia64 18.09.2013 - 08:00:

Come faccio a sapere qual'è la taglia giusta per me ? non sono riuscita a trovare corrispondenze!

DROPS Design 18.09.2013 kl. 11:56:

Buongiorno Nadia, se scorre la pagina verso il basso, sotto il diagramma troverà lo schema con le misure per tutte le taglie: con quello riuscirà a trovare la taglia giusta per lei. Buon lavoro!

Pauline Ewart 21.05.2013 - 08:31:

I'm just starting A2 on the Back piece and it says "when piece measures 20 cm ....". My piece already measured 28 cm when I finished A1! Should the pattern read "when the piece measures 30 cm ...."? Grateful your advice. Regards, Pauline

DROPS Design 21.05.2013 kl. 09:05:

Dear Mrs Ewart, you begin to inc each side when piece measures 20 cm - and - after you have worked A.1, you work in A.2. Happy knitting!

Luisa Pavolettoni 13.10.2012 - 14:11:

Nei due davanti devo passare dai ferri n°3 al n°4 come per il dietro o vengono fatti tutti con il n°3?Nel caso ci sarebbe differenza anche nella grossezza dei punti! Grazie

DROPS Design 15.10.2012 kl. 12:39:

Grazie! C'era un errore. Ora è stato corretto. Devi cambiare i ferri anche sui davanti!

Coco 14.09.2012 - 15:41:

De uitleg bij het 5e symbool van het telpatroon is : = zet 1 st op een kabelnld en houd deze achter het werk, 2 st r, 1 st av van de kabelnld volgens mij moet het 3 st r zijn. Zo staat het ook in de noorse en engelse beschijving.

DROPS Design 17.09.2012 kl. 11:51:

Hallo. Ja, je hebt gelijk. Wij hebben het patroon aangepast. Bedankt.

Sjan 30.08.2012 - 18:12:

Ik kan de tekening niet vinden van dit vestje Ik weet niet waar ik dat moet zoeken,.....Groet Sjan

DROPS Design 31.08.2012 kl. 16:24:
