Sleeve cap, pattern says “then cast off 2 sts in EACH SIDE until piece measures 54-55-55-56-56-57 cm.” Does this mean cast off at both ends of every row? My sleeve cap is very short if I do this.

Kathryn Bellamy 22.02.2019 - 13:03:

I am so sorry to be dense (I am a novice knitter) but my next row starts at the armhole end , so if I cast off at the start of the row here that looks odd. I have just started off in Fabel, knitted 25, cast off 30 and knitted 25. I now have two lots of 25 stitches separated by the neck. My next row is in Fabel, starting at the armhole. I am completely stuck!

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 15:04:

Dear Mrs Bellamy, after you have worked the row casting off the middle sts for neck, turn and work next row from armhole towards neck over 1st shoulder, then, at the beg of next row (= from neck towards armhole), cast off the first 2 sts, work row to the end = 25 sts remain. Then continue back and forth over these sts until finished measurements and cast off sts for 1st shoulder. Work now second shoulder over the remaining 25 sts the same way ie at the beg from first row from neck towards armhole, you will cast off 2 sts = 25 sts remain, continue until you have worked same length (= same number of rows) as for 1st shoulder and cast off. Happy knitting!

Kathryn Bellamy 21.02.2019 - 23:18:

Hello, I am just casting off the middle 30 stitches in the middle of the back piece. I have 25 stitches on my needle, then the neck section and another 25 stitches on the needle in my hand. Please could you explain the next instruction? “ Continue to cast off 2 sts on next row towards the neck ”. Thank you.

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 09:17:

Dear Mrs Bellamy, work now each shoulder separately, at the beginning of next row from neck towards armhole cast off 2 sts, then continue until piece measures 66-68 cm and cast off. Take the sts from other needle back on needle and work the same way, ie at the beg of row from neck towards armhole, cast off 2 sts and continue until piece measures 66-68 cm. Happy knitting!

Sheila Axworthy 31.05.2018 - 18:19:

Hi. Can I knit the sleeves by picking up from the shoulder and knitting down to the wrist? If so how should I adapt the pattern? Thanks Sheila

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 08:23:

Dear Mrs Axworthy, the sleeves are here shaped on the cap, so that it might be easier to work them bottom up as in the pattern. Happy knitting!

Kate Gaunt 25.04.2018 - 12:54:

Working on the back piece. It says to decrease 2 stitches at the start of the first 6 rows (size large) and 1 stitch at the start of the next row. This only decreases 13 stitches but I should be decreasing 26 from 110 to 84. Please help as I can\'t get any further without an answer. Thank you

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 13:41:

Dear Mrs Gaunt, you bind off for armholes at the beg of every row (= both from RS and from WS) 2 sts 4 times and 1 st 1 time (in size L), ie you will bind off 2 sts at the beg of next 8 rows (= 8 sts bound off on each side) and 1 st at the beg of next 2 rows (= 1 st bound off on each side) = a total of 18 sts will be bound off for armholes, there were 100 sts before armhole = 100-18= 82 sts remain. If you work size XL, bind off 2 sts at the beg of next 12 rows (= 12 sts bound off on each side) then 1 st at the beg of next 2 rows (= 2 sts bound off on each side), 110 sts - (12x2 + 2)= 84 sts remain. Happy knitting!

Sheila 17.01.2018 - 14:03:

Hi, does this pattern have a distinct right and wrong side? I think I've gone wrong as it seems to have switched sides. Thank you

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 14:18:

Dear Sheila, since you are working garter stitch with stripes alternating 2 kind of yarns and colours, right and wrong side will look differently. Happy knitting!

Maggie 05.11.2017 - 20:00:

Having real problems with the sleeve decreases. I've checked the maths and the pattern has 26 rows in 1st decrease section (end up with 54 sts) which leaves a maximum of 24 rows for the rest. According to the tension this is 12.5cm, which is what I've got, but the armhole length on the back and fronts is 23cm so it's way too short. Should the middle decreases be 1st per row, not 2sts?

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 09:53:

Dear Maggie, you cast off for sleeve cap at the beg of every row on each side: 4-4-4-3-3-3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3-4-4-4-4-4 times, 1 st 0-1-1-3-8-11 times, then cast off 2 sts in each side until piece measures 54-55-55-56-56-57 cm (the number of sts cast off will depend here on how many rows you need to reach the given measurement for your size, make sure that you will cast off the same number of sts on each side). Then cast off 3 sts in each side, and cast off the remaining sts. Happy knitting!

Maggie 03.11.2017 - 21:20:

Hi - in the sleeve instructions it says " cast off at the beg of every row for sleeve cap as follows: 4-4-4-3-3-3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3-4-4-4-4-4 times, 1 st 0-1-1-3-8-11 times." Can you confirm that each of these is to be done on each side. Also, the Neck Edge says to pick up 94-108 sts. I'm doing the second largest of the 6 sizes. Can you confirm how many stitches I should pick up? Is it right that this is different to the right band which is 98-114 sts? Thanks!

DROPS Design 04.11.2017 kl. 06:45:

Hi Maggie, yes, you cast off for sleeve cap at the beginning of each row as described in the text - so the numbers given are x 2. If you think of the number of stitches to be picked up around the neck as a scale, then 106 sttches for your size should be right. The band is along the front piece edge, so is different from the neck and therefore the number of stitches picked up will be different from the neck. Happy knitting!

Seascapes Drops...Ik heb de steken gecontroleerd en cm , te veel steken voor de aangegeven maten en veel te wijd, echt meer dan 40 cm wijkt het af bij L . Dus weg garen. Ik weet niet voor welk land en omvang vrouwen dit is ontworpen maar niet voor ons. Het ontwerp in centimeters eronder klopt niet met patroon. Ik baal ontzettend van de aankoop, want ik kan er niks mee.

Sylvie Delisle 03.05.2017 - 22:15:

Bonjour! Je désire tricoter le modèle 153-7; j'ai de la laine Delight no. 13 rouge-orange-gris et j'aimerais avoir une idée avec quelle autre laine je pourrais l'agencer. Le patron indique la laine Fabel, j'ai noté la couleur 672-bourgogne. Est-ce qu'elle a du gris charcoal ? Merci de votre attention Félicitation pour vos beaux modèles, instructions et vidéo et vos fils!
