Done this. Soo nice. I love it a lot. I find your patterns very addictive. And very special. I always get compliments when wearing them.

Maria Naalkjær 20.04.2015 - 18:14:

Jeg har kun strikket godt et år, men har dog ret godt styr på mange ting. Jeg har dog et spørgsmål, når der står "diag viser alle p i mønsteret set fra retsiden", skal jeg så fortolke det sådan at jeg læser diagrammet forfra fra retsiden og bagfra fra vrangsiden.

DROPS Design 21.04.2015 kl. 13:12:

Hej Maria. Du ser diagrammet fra retten, men baade ret og vrangpindene staar i diagrammet. Dvs, du laeser det saadan her (naar du strikker frem og tilbage): 1. raekke = retten, laes fra höjre mod venstre, 2. raekke = vrangen, laes fra venstre mod höjre osv. Strikker du rundt er alle pinde fra retten, saa der laeser du hver raekke (pind) fra höjre mod venstre.

Mihaela 27.01.2015 - 20:05:

One more question: first RS row knit of A2 diagram has 18 stitches. After, WS which is purl knitting. Then, the second row of A2 diagram on RS I only found 17 stitches. Is this correct? I don't see where is the 1 stitch missing between the two rows (from18 to 17). Thank you for your reply. I am stacked and I cannot knit forward until you will answer me. Thanks again.

DROPS Design 28.01.2015 kl. 10:42:

Dear Mihaela, you should get 18 sts on both first row in A.2, on 3rd row in A.2 you dec 1 st (= 1 yo less than K2 tog) so that you have 17 sts in each A.2 after row 3 has been worked. Next dec in A.2 will be done on row 5 (= 16 sts remain after row 5 has been worked). Happy knitting!

Mihaela 27.01.2015 - 19:10:

What is between the diagram A1 and A2? I undrestood that I must start with 269 stiches and when the pattern is over, we arrive at 173 stiches. Somewhere must be a decrease. But where? Between the A1 and A2? Thank you for your reply.

DROPS Design 28.01.2015 kl. 10:40:

Dear Mihaela, the decrease are done in A.2, you repeat A.1/A.2 accross : A.1 over 14 sts and A.2 over 18 sts on 1st row, then you will decrease in A.2 so that 6 sts remain in A.2 when both diagrams are worked 1 time in height. Happy knitting!

Es necesaria la elevación de escote que se describe en la pechera.

DROPS Design 25.10.2014 kl. 18:25:

Hola Veronica. La elevación del escote se hace para que la prenda se adapte mejor a la parte alta de la espalda. Es recomendable trabajarla.

Kunt u mij een groter telpatroon sturen van dit patroon drops 155-4 Dessert rose jacket. wat er op de site staat is bijna niet te tellen. mvg Jo Lots

DROPS Design 14.10.2014 kl. 22:29:

Wij versturen geen patronen. U kunt onze gratis patronen zelf printen. Als u een groter telpatroon wilt, kunt u het op uw eigen computer groter maken. Als u niet weet hoe dat moet, kunt u ook het patroon meenemen naar een kopieerwinkel en het daar uitvergroten.

Fertig - in Apricot. Sieht sehr schön aus, ich habe das Lochmuster in der Passe allerdings in glatt rechts gestrickt, dann fällt es nicht so auseinander. Ein Tip von einem Paris-Fan: Ich stricke die Teile immer eine Nummer kleiner als mit anderen Materialien, dann passt es nach der ersten Wäsche super. Vielen Dank wieder mal für ein tolles Teil!

Astrid 05.09.2014 - 19:54:

Habs doch noch kapiert.....Jacke ist fertig...aber leider viel zu groß.Trotzdem ,ich finde Drops super.

DROPS Design 09.09.2014 kl. 19:56:

Liebe Astrid, Schade, dass Ihre Jacke zu gross ist. Haben Sie die Maschenprobe gestrickt? Dann ergeben sich die Masse, die unten im Diagramm angegeben sind.

Astrid 04.09.2014 - 20:42:

Wunderschön die Jacke.Hab sie fast fertig.Verstehe aber die Reihen mit der Markierung am Schluß nicht.Die Stelle mit 7 Maschen mehr nach Markierung und wenden etc.Wird das über die gesamte Anzahl der Maschen gemacht, oder nur die Maschen bis zur Markierung etc.Später dann die andere Seite neben der Markierung ? Freue mich über Hilfe.Vielen Dank.

DROPS Design 10.09.2014 kl. 11:42:

Der Markierer an der hinteren Mitte sitzt ja genau in der Mitte aller M. Also stricken Sie bis 7 M nach dem Markierer, d.h. die Hälfte der M + 7 M, wenden mitten in der R (zu den verkürzten R gibt's Video-Links oben im Kopf), stricken 14 M li (d.h. 7 M vor dem Markierer und 7 M danach), wenden wieder und stricken 21 M re (7 M vor dem Markierer und 14 M danach), wenden und stricken 28 M li (14 M davor und 14 M danach), wenden, 35 M re usw. bis über die genannte Anzahl M gestrickt wurde.
