When piece measures 42-47-48-50 cm cast off the middle 9-11-11-13 sts for neck and dec to shape the neckline on every other row: 2 sts 4 times, 1 st 2 times = 17-17-18-18 m left on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 48-53-55-57 cm.

Back: Cast on and knit as front piece – without the motif. Cast off for armhole as described for front piece. Continue until piece measures 47-52-54-56 cm, now cast off the middle 27-29-29-31 sts for neck and dec 1 st on neckline on next row = 17-17-18-18 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 48-53-55-57 cm.

Cast on 44-48-48-50 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Karisma Superwash. Knit 5-5-6-6 cm Rib. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and continue in stocking sts. At the same time, inc 2 sts mid under arm: 12-12-14-15 times on every 6-6-6-6 rounds = 68-72-76-80 sts. When piece measures 32-35-39-41 cm cast off 6 sts mid under arm and complete the sleeve back and forth on needle. Cast off for sleeve cap each side on every other row: 2 sts 2-2-3-2 times, 1 st 7-8-9-11 times, 2 st 3-3-3-3 times, 3 st 1-1-1-1 times.

Ich stricke gerade den Kinderpulli mit dem Pferdekopf. Meine Frage, sind die Reihen im Zählmuster Hin- und Rückreihen oder nur die Hinreihen? Danke für Ihre Antwort

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 13:37:

Liebe Frau Buethe, alle Reihen sind im Diagram gezeigt, die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen, die Hinreihen lesen Sie rechts nach links und die Rückreihen links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hej! Jag vill sticka den tröja i storlek 5 år. Men det står att garnet har utgått. Tycker det är svårt att själv sätta samman alternativ , kan ni skriva vilka andra garner jag ska välja ( en exakta alternativ ) så kan jag lägga en beställning/ hälsningar Anna Skogens

DROPS Design 24.08.2017 kl. 08:14:

Hei Anna. Både Tynn Cotton Chenille og Pelliza er utgått fra vårt sortiment og vi har ingen kvalitet som er lik disse to. Du kan f.eks bruke Air istedenfor Tynn Cotton Chenille, men du vil ikke få "fløyels-effekten" som Tynn Cotton Chenille har. Istedenfor Pelliza kan du bruke Alpaca Bouclé på manken på hesten og evnt droppet å ha det i selve mønstret/halsen, da Alpaca Bouclé har en annen strikkefasthet enn Pelliza. Eller så kan du erstatte Pelliza med Kid-Silk som har samme strikkefasthet, men gir ikke samme uttrykk. God Fornøyelse!

I would LOVE to knit the above pattern. Where can I purchase this yarn in New York? Can I purchase the yarn on-line? Your help will be greatly appreciated.- ASAP Thank you

DROPS Design 19.01.2015 kl. 13:59:

Dear Mrs Leavitt, please click here to see our DROPS superstore in USA where you can order online. Happy knitting!

Mette Dræby 18.10.2008 - 17:52:

Strikkefastheden holder ikke når man strikker mønstret. Faktisk bliver hestehovedet ca 10 cm for bredt. Jeg vil nu forsøge at strikke mønstret med pinde 2½ i håbet om at strikkefastheden dermed holdes.
