Continue pattern as before with 3 sts in garter st towards the armhole and 2 sts in garter st towards the neck.
Bind off when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''-26''. Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:

Then bind off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 4 times and 1 st 4 times = 18-22-22-22-22-22 sts remain on shoulder.

I oppskriften begynner vrangbord på midt foran/midt bak feltene før felling for ermer og deling til for og bakstykker På bildet er denne vrangborden kun øverst på toppen. Når skal man begynne vrangborden for å få det likt som på bildet av modellen?

DROPS Design 25.05.2016 kl. 13:32:

Hei Sølvi. Du skal begynne som der staar i mönstret. Jeg tror den ogsaa er begyndt för paa modellen paa billedet, men pga barmen traekker den lidt op.

Julia 28.01.2016 - 20:35:

Please let me know which video tutorial I can watch for the increase tip after marker and before marker. Thank you

DROPS Design 29.01.2016 kl. 09:03:

Dear Julia, the video below shows how to inc as under "increase-tip". Happy knitting!

Grethe Augustesen 04.05.2015 - 19:15:

Ups :-) Jeg er så gået i gang med at trevle op. Har glemt indtagningerne. Tak for svaret. Med venlig hilsen Grethe

Grethe Augustesen 04.05.2015 - 10:48:

Ang drops 147-5. Forstykke halsudskæring. Der er 102m og når der lukkes af til hals er det de midterste 14, så er der 88 m tilbage altså 44 m til hver skulder. Så står der at der skal lukkes 2m 4 gange og 1m 4 gange. Det giver rest på 32m og ikke 22. Jeg har så valgt at lukke 2m 9 gange og 1m 4 gange. Det er en rigtig fin halsudskæring, men mon ikke det skal rettes? Iøvrigt er jeg meget glad for jeres opskrifter. Med venlig hilsen Grethe

DROPS Design 04.05.2015 kl. 15:58:

Hej Grethe. Mönstret passer. Du skal strikke og tage ind til ærmegab som paa bagstykket. Dvs, du har 102 m og tager ind som paa bagstyk (82 m til overs), saa lukker du 14 af til hals = 68 eller 34 paa hver skulder. Du lukker saa af til hals som beskrevet (2 m 4 gange og 1 m 4 gange) og du har 22 m tilbage paa hver skulder.

Elena 18.04.2015 - 09:04:

Buongiorno, questo modello mi piace molto e vorrei realizzarlo. Noto che le spiegazioni si riferiscono ai ferri circolari, ma io possiedo solo ferri dritti. Posso procedere ugualmente. Ha dei suggerimenti da darmi? grazie molte saluti Elena

DROPS Design 18.04.2015 kl. 21:53:

Buonasera Elena, se vuole lavorare con i ferri dritti può avviare la metà delle m e aggiungere una m di vivagno per lato per le cuciture. Faccia attenzione anche alla lavorazione del diagramma. Buon lavoro!

Bodil Engen Lund 11.08.2014 - 18:04:

Har begynt å strikke toppen. Har redusert de vrange maskene til 192. Skal strikke neste omgang, stemmer ikke med maske-antallet når jeg har strikket ferdig omgangen. Har da "brukt" 180 masken, det gjenstår 12 masker. Må være noe feit i oppskriften?

DROPS Design 04.09.2014 kl. 11:14:

Når du har 192 m strikker du næste omgang således: diag A.1, 2 r, 2 vr, 2 r, diag A.1 66 m, diag A.1, 2 r, 2 vr, 2 r, diag A.1, 2 r, 2 vr, 2 r, diag A.1, 66 m, diag A.1, 2 r, 2 vr, 2 r. = 192 m God fornøjelse! Markere i opskriften hvilke tal som gælder for din størrelse!

Piron 20.12.2013 - 10:40:

Les explications avec moins de maille sont t elles prevues pour des aiguilles normales, autre que circulaires , merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 20.12.2013 kl. 14:04:

Bonjour Mme Piron, ce modèle est disponible en 6 tailles, il se tricote en rond sur aiguille circulaire jusqu'aux emmanchures. Pour apprendre à tricoter en rond, n'hésitez pas à consulter nos vidéos, beaucoup les ont adoptées après les avoir finalement essayées. Bon tricot!

Jill 04.06.2013 - 20:35:

Thank you for the correction! I greatly appreciate it. The directions for the pattern are not correct. Is their any other corrections in the pattern that I need to be aware of?

DROPS Design 05.06.2013 kl. 10:34:

Dear Jill, no correction there, I just wrote for you all indications for size S. Any correction added would be listed under the tab at the right side of the picture. Happy knitting!

Jill 04.06.2013 - 05:56:

I am making a size small, & when I switch to the larger size needle, 3.5mm, I get to the 2nd part, where you work 58 stockinette stitches & that is already 176 for the small, but I need 10 more stitches to finish the row. Am I reading the directions incorrectly?

DROPS Design 04.06.2013 kl. 09:01:

Dear Jill, in size S you should have : (starting 3 sts before beg of round) : A1 (6 sts) + K2, P2 + K2 + 6 sts in A1 + 58 st st + 6 sts in A1 + K2, P2 + K2 + 6 sts in A1 + K2, P2 + K2 + 6 sts in A1 + 58 st st + 6 sts in A1 + K2, P2 + K2 = 176 sts. Happy knitting!

Karin 18.03.2013 - 13:28:

Nu är den klar! Stickade klart den på en vecka exakt...Enkel och väldigt bra passform, jag minskade den lite så att den skulle bli en tajt xs och den sitter precis så som jag ville! Tack för det snabba svaret på min fråga...
