Buongiorno vorrei cortesemente sapere quali sono esattamente i ferri circolari corti che devo acquistare per questo lavoro. Chiedo scusa ma non ho mai lavorato con i ferri circolari prima d'ora. grazie erica

DROPS Design 27.05.2016 kl. 08:32:

Buongiorno Erica. In questo modello i ferri circolari vengono suggeriti per riprendere le m intorno allo scollo. Un cavo lungo 60 cm può essere la lunghezza corretta. Se si trova meglio, può usare i ferri a doppia a punta al posto dei circolari. Buon lavoro!

Dans l'explication du devant, pour les diminutions pour les emmanchures, cela ne me semble pas clair du tout : voilà ce qui est écrit dans l'explication : .... emmanchures de chaque côté tous les 2 rangs : 1 fois ' m, 1-2-3-4-5 fois 2 m et 2 fois 1 m = 55-57-59-61-63 m. Voilà , je ne comprends pas du tout, après les : 1 fois ' m, etc... ne manque-t-il pas un chiffre à la place de ' après le mot fois ??? Merci de m'éclaircir. P.B.

Bonjour Mme Bourdeaud'huy, c'était une faute de frappe, il fallait lire: "1 fois 4 m", le texte a été corrigé, merci. Bon tricot!

Kim Kerscher 24.02.2013 - 16:05:

Sleeve instructions: What does this mean??? Inc 1 st at each side every 3-3-2, 5-2-2 cm 11 times???

DROPS Design 25.02.2013 kl. 10:59:

Dear Mrs Kerscher, you will have to inc 1 st each side (ie at the beg + at the end of the row) every 3 cm (size S and M), 2,5 cm (size L) etc... a total of 11 times. You will then have inc 22 sts (size S and M). Happy knitting!

Yvonne McCoy 30.06.2012 - 04:25:

I'm reading the pattern right now for the sleeve and am unsure about the wording. It says: "Inc 1 st at each side every 3-3-2,5-2-2 cm". Should this be "Inc 1 st at each side every 3-3-2-2-2 cm" instead (omitting the 5)?

DROPS Design 06.12.2012 kl. 11:03:

Dear Mrs MacCoy, it really means 2,5 cm, so every 2.5 cm in size L. Happy Knitting!
