I would like to make this in a light cotton or synthetic yarn for summer rather than a wool mohair type yarn. Since it calls for a "c" weight yarn, it looks like it would not look lacy in the alternatives since they are thicker yarns. What yarn would you recommend? Thanks.

DROPS Design 17.05.2016 kl. 09:19:

Dear Roberta, for any further personnal assistance choosing an alternative you are welcome to contact your DROPS Store even per telephone or per mail, they will provide you individual assistance. Happy knitting!

Catherine 31.10.2013 - 17:55:

Bonjour, A quelle hauteur faut-il commencer les diminutions pour l'encolure de devant ? cordialement Catherine

DROPS Design 31.10.2013 kl. 17:59:

Bonjour Catherine, au 1er rang sur l'end après la dernière boutonnière, vous mettez en attente pour l'encolure les 11-15 premières m (cf taille) et rabattez ensuite 3x 2 m et 3x 1 m pour l'encolure. Bon tricot!

Cutie by DROPS Design Knitted DROPS jacket with lace pattern in ”Vivaldi”. Size: S - XXXL.Materials: DROPS VIVALDI from Garnstudio 100-100-100-100-150-150 g It says i only need 150 gms for the large size.this can't be right

DROPS Design 01.08.2013 kl. 10:20:

Dear Vee, on the basis of the indicated tension, you should need 150 g Vivaldi in largest size, DROPS Vivaldi is 50 g/280 m approx. Happy knitting!

Nashwa Ahmed 23.06.2013 - 12:07:

I am sorry but diagram A.1 is only 8 sts not 13 i can't figure it out

DROPS Design 24.06.2013 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Nasha Ahmed, A.1 can be repeated on how many sts you'll need, you just need an even number of sts to cast on, eg 14 sts + 1 edge st each side. Happy knitting!

Nashwa Ahmed 21.06.2013 - 18:26:

How to check gauge for this pattern ?

DROPS Design 22.06.2013 kl. 09:47:

Dear Mrs Nasha Ahmed, you have to work a swatch in A.1 and then get 13 sts = 10 cm in width + 1 time diagrams A.2/A.3 should be 10 cm in width. Happy knitting!

Delattre 17.06.2013 - 10:08:

Je ne comprends pas l'explication du devant droit. Commence-t-on les boutonnières directement après les augmentations de la manche? Si oui, combien de mailles et comment?

DROPS Design 17.06.2013 kl. 10:40:

Bonjour Mme Delattre, toutes les indications pour les boutonnières figurent au début des explications, ainsi la 1ère se situe entre 29 et 35 cm en fonction de la taille choisie. Bon tricot!

Francesca 12.06.2013 - 01:26:

I am working the back and have reached the sleeve increases but I find that both sides are sloped - in opposite directions. Is this right and to be remedied when I block the piece or have a made some kind of mistake?

DROPS Design 13.06.2013 kl. 08:49:

Dear Francesca, maybe some yos have been missed or added after casting on for sleeves ? It is very easy to go wrong with yo when increasing at the same time. Make sure you have always the same amount of 2 tog and yo + inc and keep no of sts right. Happy knitting!

Margreet 07.06.2013 - 17:55:

In mijn vorige bericht zei ik dat ik 25 steken gemeerderd had, zie nu dat het er 4 keer 2 steken zijn. Maar volgens mij blijft het probleem hetzelfde. Ik heb aan het begin en eind van elke naald een steek recht gebreid, dus als ik nu met die 2 extra steken begin, dan brei ik de eerste steek recht en ga ik dan verder met patroon A1,maar dan maakt de eerste steek van de oorspronkelijke steken er deel vanuit waardoor mi het patroon niet meer boven elkaar komt.

DROPS Design 11.06.2013 kl. 15:32:

Hoi Margreet. Ik ga vanuit dat je maat XXL breit. Je zet dan op voor de mouwen: 4 keer 2 st, 1 keer 4 st en 1 keer 6 st aan beide kanten: 18 st aan beide kanten of 36 in totaal = 114 st op de nld. Je breit aan beide kanten 5 ribbelst (= mouwst), dus je breit A.1 over de overige 104 st. A.1 is deelbaar door 2, dus het zou goed uitkomen, de vroegere recht steken wordt nu samen gebreid in het patroon. Tel goed uit zo dat het patroon klopt.

Margreet 07.06.2013 - 17:27:

Ik heb nu 25 steken opgezet voor de mouw. Maar als ik nu verder brei in patroon A1 dan kom ik toch niet uit doordat er aan iedere kant een rechte kantsteek zit. Nu zou het betekenen dat deze kantsteek de eerste is van A1. Ik snap het dus niet meer. Is de eerste steek van de 25 nu een rechte en brei ik daarna in patroon? Zo ja, dan verschuift volgens mij het patroon op het rugpand. Uit het patroon word ik niets wijzer.

Cora 14.05.2013 - 18:33:

From this point, at the back of the piece: "When piece measures 43-45-47-49-51-53 cm - adjust so that next row is worked from RS, switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Work in garter st back and forth over all sts..." untill the cast off all the rows are worked in garter st, not in diagram A1 any more?

DROPS Design 15.05.2013 kl. 07:39:

Dear Cora, you are correct, from this measure you continue in garter st until finished measurement = for 3 more cm. Happy knitting!
