Is niet mooi wanneer af is Valt veel groter uit zelfs na proeflapje Is precies een zak jammer

Lisa 01.06.2015 - 16:31:

I have knit up several tops in the medium size. I am trying to make sure I select the correct size for me. I am normally a Medium, But the bust size for this pattern seams small for a medium. Would I select the larger size according to the finished bust size? or would that turn out to be too big because the top would stretch out?

DROPS Design 01.06.2015 kl. 16:37:

Dear Lisa, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements in cm taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size, depending also on how many tight/loose you prefer. convert here cm into inch. Happy knitting!

Graag antwoord op mijn vorige vraag

Carine 30.05.2015 - 12:38:

Bij afwerking staat bovenkant mouw naar beneden langs mouwkop dichtnaaien maar niks uitleg over onderkant en oksel is toch niet bedoeling dat er daar open gat is

DROPS Design 03.06.2015 kl. 14:14:

Hoi Carina. Je sluit de schoudernaad tot over de mouwen (bovenkant van de mouw), de opening, die je dan onder krijgt is het armsgat. Zie ook foto - het is een hele korte mouw, hij loopt niet door onder de oksel.

Carine 29.05.2015 - 07:27:

Nu begrijp ik om de hoeveel naalden minderen maar is het nu voor of na de 1e en 2 e markeerder want uitleg verschilt per taal graag antwoord want raak zo niet verder

DROPS Design 29.05.2015 kl. 12:54:

Hoi Carine. Je meerdert voor 1e markeerder en na 2e markeerder gezien aan goede kant - hetzelfde staat in het originele Noorse patroon en in het Engelse.

Carine 28.05.2015 - 18:01:

Sorry begrijp nog steeds niet... Dus minderen aan goede kant om de 4 nld?? Wat ook niet klopt is nederlandse beschrijving er staat minderen na markeerder en in andere talen voor markeerder.. Wat is ht eigenlijk???

DROPS Design 29.05.2015 kl. 12:55:

Zie antwoord hierboven

Carine 28.05.2015 - 15:45:

Er staat voor de mouwen minder om de 4 nld 12 x 1 steek maar tss haakjes staat om de naald?? Is het om de 4 nld of om de 2 nld ??

DROPS Design 28.05.2015 kl. 15:54:

Hoi Carine. Om de naald op de goede kant is elke 4e nld (verkeerde kant, goede kant (1e keer), verkeerde kant, goede kant (2e keer).

Carlne 27.05.2015 - 07:07:

Kun je deze ook met gewone naalden breien ipv rondbreinaald?

DROPS Design 27.05.2015 kl. 14:40:

Hoi Carine. Je kan het patroon aanpassen in voor- en achterpand en heen en weer breien.

Debbi Darling 07.11.2014 - 13:36:

So I am still waiting your answer from June.

DROPS Design 07.11.2014 kl. 15:35:

Dear Mrs Darling, a correction has been made to this pattern so that you change to needle size 4 mm / US 6 to work A.2. See tab "correction" to print only the corrected part. Happy knitting!

Debbi Darling 24.06.2014 - 17:48:

The first part of the top is done using size us4 needle for chart a.1 - the pattern asks us to get gauge for A.2 on size us 6 needles (i got gauge with a us 5) -when we switch from chart a.1 to a.2, the instructions do not tell me to change my needle. what size needle do I use for chart a.2? thanks!

DROPS Design 24.06.2014 kl. 18:37:

We'll come back as soon as possible to answer you - see below. Thank you for your patience.
