Loving the pattern! Are your measurements for when to do buttonholes, measured from the bottom of the buttonhole band or the bottom of the points created by the slip/K2/psso? The points are a bit longer. Thanks for your help!

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 10:36:

Dear Barbara, thank you for your note and question. The placement for the buttonholes are measured from the bottom of the button-band (from the cast on edge). I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Marisa 03.09.2015 - 15:12:

Buongiorno, non ho capito; dopo aver lavorato il diagramma A1 devo attaccare con A2 e poi A3 o ripetere sempre A1? io ho terminato A1 e poi stavo lavorando a maglia rasata, ma confrontando l'immagine , vedo che invece c'e' la ripetizione del disegno. Poi vi chiedero' altro andando avanti con il lavoro grazie Marisa

DROPS Design 03.09.2015 kl. 15:18:

Buongiorno Marisa, questo modello è bottom up, inizia dal basso verso l'alto: alla fine di A.1 deve lavorare a m rasata con il bordo a m legaccio, e a 7 cm inizierà le diminuzioni come indicato. Ci riscriva se qualcosa non è chiaro. Buon lavoro!

Myriam Guillemin 21.05.2015 - 19:27:

Suis en train de tricoter l'empiècement et je ne trouve pas dans la marche à suivre ou se font les diminutions Merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 22.05.2015 kl. 09:34:

Bonjour Mme Guillemin, les diminutions de l'empiècement se font au niveau des diagrammes: 4 m sont diminuées à l'avant-dernier rang de chacun des motifs A.2 et A.3 puis 2 m sont diminuées dans l'avant-dernier rang de A.4. Bon tricot!

Gitte Damsgaard 14.05.2015 - 19:27:

I str XXL har du 263 masker, skal tage ind 6 gange af 4 masker. Bliver så 239 masker. Mennnn....... I får det til 235 😳 Er ikke den første fejl jeg finder ( se kommentar) Er da i den græd surt og trals man ik kan regne med jeres opskrifter. Hvorfor ligge sådan noget " makværk" op hvor man skal bruge en masse tid på ar rette fejl????????

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 09:47:

Hej Gitte, du tager ind på hver side af de to mærker først 1 gang og så 6 gange til = ialt 7 gange i din størrelse. 263 - 14 - 14 = = 235 m! God fornøjelse!

Gitte Damsgaard 14.05.2015 - 19:07:

I skriver i opskriften,ved udtagning: sno omkring for at undgå hul. MEN du få jo et hul når du snor omkring. I skriver/viser det i jeres video. SÅ er ski da ireterende at i skriver det modsatte i opskriften, og så får man "glæden" ved at pille opSÅ alle strik medsøster, 2 masker i en ved udtagning

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 13:55:

Hej Gitte, Jeg tror du har misforstået opskriften. Hvis du tager ud ved at slå om og strikker omslaget drejet på næste pind (som vi skriver i opskriften), så vil du kun få et meget lille hul. Du har ret i at der findes mange forskellige måder at tage ud på, og det er naturligvis en smags sag. Vi har gjort det på den måde der står i opskrften. God fornøjelse!

Wat een leuk vestje! Even iets anders dan sokken breien, hetgeen ik de laatste tijd deed. Moet alleen nog wennen aan het breien op een rondbreinaald en wil de mouwtjes iets langer maken. De kleur die ik heb gekozen is ijsblauw.

Magda 02.04.2015 - 21:01:

Beste, Misschien zag ik het over het hoofd maar ik zocht me reeds suf. Ik ben namelijk opzoek naar een matentabel met afmetingen zodat ik toch een idee heb van met wat een L-XL-XXL etc. overeenkomt. Bij het ene merk stemt een XXL overeen met maat 52, bij het andere merk blijkt een XXL nog te klein voor een maatje 42. Ik ben namelijk aan de brede kant en maakte reeds veel werkje die veel te klein uitvielen. Alvast dank voor uw tussenkomst. Mvg, Magda

DROPS Design 02.04.2015 kl. 23:07:

Beste Magda, we hebben geen maattabel en dat is met opzet. Wel vind je onderaan al onze ontwerpen voor kleding een tekening met maten. Sommige modellen hebben een wijdere pasvorm dan anderen en zo kun je de maat kiezen zoals je hem wilt dragen. Tip: wil je een vest maken? Pak dan een vest van jezelf dat precies goed past en meet dat op, vergelijk die maten met de tekening onderaan het patroon en kies dan de juiste maat.

Non tenete presente la mia domanda, ho capito! Scusate...

Anna 22.03.2015 - 13:30:

Dopo aver lavorato le due coste a legaccio, ho continuato come indicato con lo schema A.1 per 16 volte (taglia M) ma alla fine del primo ferro le maglie rimaste sono di molto inferiori alle 203 previst nella spiegazione. Sicuramente non ho capito le diminuzione nel primo ferro. Ho interpretato cosi: 2 m ins dir - 4 m dir - 1 m pass, 2 m ins, acc. la m. pass sulle 2 lavorat ins. - 3 m dir, 2 m. ins a dir e si ricomincia per 16 volte. Non sono molto esperta, dove ho sbagliato? Grazie.

DROPS Design 22.03.2015 kl. 15:36:

Buonasera Anna. La prima riga del diagramma A.1 viene lavorata come segue: 6 m dir, 1 m passata, 2 m insieme, accavallare la m passata sulle 2 m lavorate insieme, 5 m dir. Ci riscriva se incontra altre difficoltà. Buon lavoro!
