GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2, A.3 and A.4, diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
The diagrams is divided into 3 parts. Since it dec and inc in different parts will the diagrams see inadequate out. But the number of sts at the end of each row will still be the same.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec inside 1 edge st in garter st. All dec are done from RS!
Dec before 1 edge st as follows: K 2 tog.
Dec after 1 edge st as follows: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

KNITTING TIP 1:
To make a nice finish on repetition, continue with diagram A.3 instead of A.2 (right front piece) and A.1 instead of A.2 (left front piece).

SHORT ROWS:
To make a better shape on the collar work short rows in garter st as follows: * 2 rows back and forth over 15 sts, 2 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time.

KNITTING TIP 2:
When dec sts on each side of sleeve and lace pattern A.4 continues, stripes in lace pattern will disappear in sleeve seam. Work sts that do not fit in stocking st.

På toppen av framstykket - når ein går over til kragen, står det "Videre fortsettes det slik fra vrangen: A3, A1..." Betyr det at ein skal strikka mønsteret frå vranga, slik at retta blir vranga, på ein måte? Skal kragen brettast ut? På biletet ser ein ikkje kragen pga håret til modellen...

DROPS Design 30.10.2014 kl. 09:23:

Hej Hege, nej du fortsætter bare på samme måde som du har gjort hele tiden, samtidig som du strikker de forkortede pinde. God fornøjelse!

Drops Design NL 01.08.2014 - 14:06:

Goed om te horen en veel breiplezier!

Corinne 01.08.2014 - 10:19:

Bedankt! Ik heb proeflapje gemaakt en alles klopte, maar ik was gewoon bang dat ik veel te los aan het breien was!:-)

Corinne 31.07.2014 - 15:36:

Het is prachtig garen, en ik ben er druk mee bezig, maar door de dikke pennen (op de wol staat nr 4) worden de steken wel erg grof. Klopt dit?

DROPS Design 01.08.2014 kl. 08:49:

Hebt u een proeflapje gebreid en uw stekenverhouding gecontroleerd met het patroon? Door de keuze van een grote maat naald, krijgt u een open effect, dit is geen fout, maar een keuze van de designafdeling voor dit patroon.

Bente 24.04.2014 - 21:08:

Heisann! Kan vi ta det på norsk? Mønster A1, det står 12 masker men jeg ender opp med 13 masker. Hvordan løser jeg dett...?

DROPS Design 25.04.2014 kl. 12:35:

Hei Bente. Naar du strikker videre (A.3) tages der ind igen. Saa kommer det totale antal masker til at stemme. God fornöjelse videre.

Lizjune 28.02.2014 - 03:14:

Sorry to be a pest, but Chart A1 says it has 12 stitches. What you listed in your response equals 13. What is supposed to happen with the extra stitch- or is this a typo and the total number of stitches (listed at the bottom of the chart) is supposed to be 13?

DROPS Design 28.02.2014 kl. 10:51:

Dear Lizjune, you are correct, sorry, the diagram will be checked and I will come back to you asap. Thank you.

Lizjune 27.02.2014 - 07:07:

Reading your chart for this pattern, the very first row of A.1: per the chart row 1 should have 12 stitches but in counting the stitches shown, I end up with 13. The problem seems to be with the yo markings--how to read these? The videos do not work for me. Please help!

DROPS Design 27.02.2014 kl. 12:14:

Dear Lizjune, you should keep same number of sts all the way, each YO is compensated by 1 dec, row 1 A.1 is worked as follows:K2 tog, K2, YO, K1, YO, slip 1 as if to K, K1, psso, YO, K5. Happy knitting!

Lizjune 27.02.2014 - 06:51:

I am not able to see the videos so please help! I "translated" the charts to words, and began to knit the sweater per the instructions but there seems to be a problem with my understanding of YO, which is throwing off the pattern. Where can I find a very clear definition of how you accomplish YO? I was always told that if knitting you put the yarn over the needle (as if to purl) to create the YO. Clearly this isn't working. What does your YO mean?

DROPS Design 27.02.2014 kl. 12:12:

Dear Lizjune, a YO is a wrap around needle, you can check the video below, click on title to see it on vimeo.com. Happy knitting!
