Hola, Primero que todo quiero darles las gracias por compartir todos los patrones con las tejedoras a nivel mundial. Hice un saco partiendo de este patrón y quedé muy feliz con el resultado :) fue muy sencillo de interpretar y solo fue ajustar algunas cosillas. Gracias Paula

I am having trouble with creation of neckline after c/off middle 26 stitches do I complete the purl row, knit a row and then commence further cast off to shape neckline and do I cast off at beg of two consecutive rows after that or just at middle of neck? Just a bit confused.

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 08:53:

Dear Mrs Young, work 1 row by casting off the middle 26 sts then work to the end of row and slip first sts (before the 26 sts on a thread). Turn piece and work next row from WS, then turn and at the beg of next row from RS dec 1 st for neck, work to the end of row. Repeat the last 2 rows (= 2 sts dec towards neck). Happy knitting!

I think there is a mistake on this pattern. For the fronts, it says to cast on half the number of the stitches on the back + 8 stitches for the front bands. But the front bands overlap so I think this should be an extra 4 stitches not 8.

DROPS Design 12.01.2016 kl. 13:42:

Dear Mary, There are 8 sts on front bands. Ladies body is usually a bit wider in the front than back. Happy knitting!
