Wendie 10.02.2019 - 05:04:

New knitter here. How do I continue to knit the Right front if the working yarn is on the stitch holder with the Left front piece?

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 03:29:

Dear Wendir, you have to cut the yarn and reattach it to the place from where you can continue to knit. Happy Knitting!

Connie 26.05.2018 - 21:04:

Where are the directions for making the longer fronts? Thank you.

DROPS Design 28.05.2018 kl. 09:18:

Dear Connie, the jacket is worked bottom up, ie all sts are cast on from bottom edge including the longer fronts. Divide piece as explained for armholes and finish back and front pieces separately. Happy knitting!

Connie 20.05.2018 - 01:47:

After converting to a 200 yard skein how many skeins would I need for a size large?

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 10:15:

Dear Connie, to find an alternative please use our yarn converter or contact the store where you bought your yarn for any individual assistance. Happy knitting!

Eve LaForte 02.06.2017 - 07:35:

Where it says: Keep the first 84 sts on needle and slip the remaining 144 sts , that is 228 stitches, Where are the other two stitches. Is it the first 2 edge stitches that are not counted for in the instructions? Thank you.

DROPS Design 02.06.2017 kl. 09:58:

Dear Mrs LaForte, before working each part separately you cast off from RS the middle of the è sts in garter st for armhole, so that you have: 81 sts, 3 sts in garter st, 1 st cast off, 3 sts in garter st, 54 sts in stocking st, 3 sts in garter st, 1 st cast off, 3 sts in garter st, 81 sts. Happy knitting!

Vikki Garner 03.11.2016 - 19:56:

With regard to my previous question please note the figures given for the 4th set of measurements. How can the total length be 80cm if you are to knit to 89cm and then work 2 ridges?

DROPS Design 04.11.2016 kl. 09:11:

Dear Mrs Garner, it seems you are right, your feedback has been forwarded to our Design team, you may have to work until 79 cm in 4th size instead of 89 cm to get the final measurements to 80. Happy knitting!

Vikki Garner 02.11.2016 - 23:37:

Is it a typing error for the overall length before binding off?- the pattern states until piece measures 73-75-77-89-81-84. Thanks

DROPS Design 03.11.2016 kl. 09:08:

Dear Mrs Garner, when piece measures 73-75-77-89-81-84 cm work 2 ridges with needle size 4 mm and bind off - Total length should be 74-76-78-80-82-84 cm as in measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Juliana 11.06.2016 - 11:57:

Ich bin eine Strickanfängerin, wie ist es mit den Randmaschen? Muss man 2 Randmaschen dazu aufnehmen oder sind schon die Randmaschen bei der angegebenen Anzahl in der Anleitung berücksichtigt.

DROPS Design 13.06.2016 kl. 08:58:

Liebe Juliana, die Randmaschen sind bei der angegebnen Maschenzahl bereits berücksichtigt.

Tina Rummeni 02.06.2016 - 08:34:

Hallo, ich habe nur 7 Knäuel der Wolle. Nun habe ich das Modell in den Vorderteilen reduziert. Pro Seite 15 Maschen, also insgesamt 30 Maschen weniger bei Größe s. Habe mit 50gr knapp 15cm in der Höhe über die gesamte Breite geschafft. Wenn ich das hochrechne, dürften auch 8 Knäuel nicht reichen für die gesamte Jacke... Wie viel Wolle benötige ich noch?

DROPS Design 04.06.2016 kl. 06:26:

Liebe Tina, bitte haben Sie Verständnis dafür, dass wie die Anleitung nicht für einen kleineren Garnverbrauch umrechnenen können. Wenn Sie das gleiche Farbbad nicht mehr erhalten, könnten Sie z.B. an den Ärmeln in Streifen ein anderes Farbbad einarbeiten.

Ellen 31.05.2016 - 15:58:

Hallo würde gerne wissen wie man von der anleitung jackenteil von 81 maschen auf 84 maschen bei der anleitung linkes vorderteil kommt?muss ich drei maschen aufnehmen oder wo kommen die zusätzlichen drei maschen her?

DROPS Design 01.06.2016 kl. 08:23:

Hallo Ellen, diese Maschen werden nicht aufgenommen sondern sind Teil der 7 kraus rechts Maschen.

Tikimikis 29.05.2016 - 15:22:

Bonjour, je voudrai commencer ce modele pour ma fille et j'aimerai savoir si les tailles correspondent aux tailles francaises. Merci

DROPS Design 30.05.2016 kl. 09:59:

Bonjour Mme Tikimikis, vous trouverez à la fin des explications un schéma avec toutes les mesures pour chaque taille, comparez un vêtement similaire qui lui va avec ses mesures pour trouver la taille idéale - voir aussi ici. Bon tricot!
