How easily adjustable is this pattern for a larger bust? E.g. I'd need an L size for the bust, but likely S or M for everything else if I want it to be fitted. On which rows/stitches could I put increases and decreases to do this? Thanks

DROPS Design 16.09.2019 kl. 11:28:

Dear LM, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every request, please contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per mail or telephone - for any individual assistance. Happy knitting!

Birgit Andersen 02.09.2019 - 17:03:

Jeg er en rimelig god strikker, men synes hulmønstrer diagrammet ikke bliver ens i begge sider. Højre side: slå om 2 ret sammen Venstre side 2 ret sammen slå om Hullerne bliver ikke ens. Hvor skal der strikkes flg: 1 løs af 1 ret træk den løse m over Det fremgår ikke tydeligt i diagrammet

DROPS Design 06.09.2019 kl. 11:24:

Hej Birgit, du starter på højre forstykke med A.1 = 1 ret, 1 omslag, tag 1 m løst af p, 1 ret, løft den løse m over. Og slutter på venstre forstykke med A.2 = 2 ret sammen, 1 omslag , 1 ret. God fornøjelse!

Susan 09.08.2019 - 21:03:

Is the back intended to be plain until you reach the yoke, or should that have the same diamond pattern as the front? And what size buttons do you expect to be used(Diameter?)?

DROPS Design 09.08.2019 kl. 21:31:

Hello Susan. The back is plain up to the yoke. The buttons have a diameter of 15 mm. Happy knitting!

Goli 06.04.2019 - 00:23:

Hi. thanks for completely explain. empty rows in the chart is wrong side or RS?

DROPS Design 06.04.2019 kl. 09:58:

Hello Goli. Empty rows (even rows) are worked on the wrong side. Happy knitting!

Cecilie Skovbjerg 23.11.2018 - 18:44:

Jeg mangler lidt en information om hvor mange masker der skal være på henholdsvis forstykker og bagstykke, når man lukker af til ærmegab.

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 13:00:

Hei Cecilie. Du har satt 1 merketråd i hver side, 55-60-64-70-77-84 m inn fra midt foran (= maskeantallet for hvert forstykke), og du har da 93-105-117-129-143-159 masker på bakstykket. Videre feller du 1 maske på hver side av merket totalt 4 ganger, men så øker du 1 maske på hver side av merket 4 ganger = uendret maskeantall. Du feller 4 masker på hver side av merket til ermhull. Så for å finne ut hvor mange masker du har på hver del: ta masketallet for forstykke (i din størrelse) og trekk fra 4, ta masketallet fra bakstykket og trekk fra 8 (4 masker felt i hver side) og du har svaret. God fornøyelse

Elaine Morris 13.01.2015 - 12:34:

What bust sizes are medium, large or extra large please?

DROPS Design 13.01.2015 kl. 17:53:

Dear Mrs Morris, you will find at the bottom of the page a measurement chart with all measures taken flat from side to side - compare these to a similar garment to find out the matching size. Happy knitting!

Elaine Morris 12.01.2015 - 16:00:

What bust sizes is this pattern please?

Bente 10.07.2014 - 15:19:

Mangler der ikke nogen "slå om" på hver side af " løs af og 2 m sm"

DROPS Design 11.07.2014 kl. 19:32:

Hej Bente. De står også i diagrammet, men i forklaringen er de delt op.

Nanna 10.02.2014 - 22:15:

Er vrangsiden vist i diagrammet eller er der en retpind i mellem hver retpind med mønster?

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 00:01:

Hei Nanna, diagrammet viser alle p i mönstret. Der ser man hverannen p er tomma ruter, så p fra vrangen strikkes vrang. Tom rute er rett på retten, eller vrang på vrangen.

Nanna 10.02.2014 - 22:15:

Er vrangsiden vist i diagrammet eller er der en retpind i mellem hver retpind med mønster?
