Kathi 24.06.2018 - 20:04:

I am confused with this part of the pattern.." 18-21-23-26-29-31 repetitions on round (NOTE – in size M + L + XXL + XXXL there is 1 st extra at the end of round after last repetition. Work this st as first st in A.2 but K this st on 9th-11th-13th-15th and 17th round)I have done the first row decrease and have 208 stitches (making size L)" Does this mean I decrease again on row 18, 21 and so on or on the 9, 11,13....or what? I am hibernating until I know for sure. thanks, Kathi

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 09:30:

Dear Kathi, you dec on first round in A.2 so that there are 208 sts on the round and then enough sts to repeat A.2 a total of 23 times ( 9 sts in A.2 x 23 = 207 sts, work the last st either K or P as shown in diagram but do not dec this st when working round 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17 = this st will be always worked either K or P). Happy knitting!

Linda 06.10.2016 - 14:03:

The finished sleeve edge is smaller in comparison to the arm hole. If I sew them together, they're going to ripple. The sleeve also feels too tight to me (length is perfect). What would you suggest the number of sts I should add to make a wider sleeve (size XXL)?

DROPS Design 06.10.2016 kl. 15:19:

Dear Linda, remember to check and keep your gauge, in size XXL, you should have 94 sts, with a tension of 21 sts = 10 cm sleeve should be approx. 44 cm circomference, ie 22 cm to fit armhole. If you need it larger, you can make more inc mid under sleeve to fit the width you'd like to. Happy knitting!

Kathy Griffin 27.07.2016 - 22:37:

Thank you for your answer to my previous question. It was most helpful. My current question is related to the sleeve length. Why do the final sleeve measurements decrease in length from XS to XXXL? I am making a size small. The pattern that I have says " when sleeve measures 55-53-52-49-47-46 cm, loosely bind off.

DROPS Design 28.07.2016 kl. 08:39:

Dear Mrs Griffin, sleeves are shorter in larger size because of wider body and shoulders. Happy knitting!

Kathy Griffin 01.07.2016 - 00:30:

With reference to Diagram A.1, once the first row is completed, it would seem that you start the second row with a YO. That would mean that there are 2 YO's per row and only one K2 tog. If I follow this, my number of stitches will increase rather than remain the same.

DROPS Design 01.07.2016 kl. 17:48:

Dear Mrs Griffin, on row 1 in A.1, you work: YO, slip 1 as if to K, K2 tog, psso, YO, P3 = 6 sts, the yos compensate the dec. You should have 6 sts on next row. Happy knitting!

Cm 25.04.2016 - 07:23:

Hallo, ich habe mich sehr darauf gefreut, diesen Pullover stricken zu können. Habe mir die Original Wolle schicken lassen, Maschenprobe stimmt auch. Was ich nicht verstehe: über 300 Maschen am Anfang, das gibt doch nie 57 cm Breite....Ich habe schon 2x neu angefangen, aber das ist bei so vielen Maschen nicht sehr attraktiv.... Habe ich etwas übersehen? Vielen Dank für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 26.04.2016 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Cm, Sie haben vielleicht übersehen, dass ein sehr lockeres Bündchen (also mit vielen Maschen) gestrickt wird, nach dem Bündchen werden viele Maschen abgenommen

Laura Skov Andersen 15.04.2016 - 14:17:

Hej! Strikkes denne trøje oppefra og ned, eller nedefra eller op? Gælder det samme for mønsterdelene? Hilsen Laura

DROPS Design 15.04.2016 kl. 15:32:

Hej Laura. Den strikkes nedefra og op - ellers melder vi det i mönstret. Og det samme gaelder for mönstret. Laes ogsaa her hvordan du laeser vores diagrammer

Marit Olsen 28.01.2016 - 17:26:

Hvilke andre fargekombinasjoner kan anbefales? Liker veldig godt svart og grå.

DROPS Design 29.01.2016 kl. 12:22:

GG 09.01.2016 - 22:29:

Hi, just wondering if size M would be too small on a 33-26-34? or size L would be a better fit? Thanks!

DROPS Design 11.01.2016 kl. 10:23:

Dear GG, you will find all measurements for each size in the measurement chart at the bottom of the pattern, these are taken flat from side to side in cm (convert here in inch - compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size - read more here. Happy knitting!

Molly 14.11.2015 - 17:19:

Dankjewel voor je antwoord! In de mouw moeten dus steken gemeerderd worden op en na 11cm vanaf de opzetnaald. Nu betekent dit dat ik moet meerderen midden in een telpatroon (A2). Kunnen jullie mij uitleggen hoe dat werkt? Bedankt voor alle hulp!

DROPS Design 16.11.2015 kl. 14:27:

Beste Molly. Je breit de nieuwe steken gewoon gaandeweg mee in het patroon (de recht en averecht steken), het kantpatroon zou ik pas meebreien als je genoeg steken hebt voor een complete herhaling (= 9 st meer). Tot die tijd deze st in r (tricotsteek) breien.

Molly 13.11.2015 - 14:05:

Hallo! Bij de mouw staat: "meerder tegelijkertijd bij een hoogte van 11 cm 2 st". Is dit 11 cm ná A2, vanaf de 8cm boordsteek of vanaf onder? Dank u!

DROPS Design 13.11.2015 kl. 15:27:

Hoi Molly. Je meet 11 cm vanaf de opzetnaald.
