Continue with pattern until piece measures 44-43-42-41-40-39 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders). Loosely cast off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Pick up from RS approx. 80-92 sts (incl sts on stitch holder) along the neck on circular needle size 4.5 mm with 1 strand of each yarn (= 2 strands). Work 2 rigdes and cast off.

Buongiorno, ho problemi nel cominciare il davanti sinistro. Non capisco come devo interpretare il grafico.Io ho cominciato con 5 m legaccio e 2 m.diritte po come continuo? Grazie di cuore

DROPS Design 25.09.2015 kl. 07:02:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Deve lavorare come segue (taglia S): 5 m a legaccio, 2 m a maglia rasata, diagramma A.1 3 volte, diagramma A.3 una volta, 5 m a legaccio. A 8 cm, aumenterà 1 m all'inizio del ferro sul diritto. Dopo la costa a legaccio sulle 6 m laterali, lavorerà: 1 m vivagno, 2 m a maglia rasata, diag. A.2, diag.A.1, diag.A.3, 5 m a legaccio. Ci riscriva se ancora in difficoltà. Buon lavoro!
