I would like to know in this pattern for Charming Cooper, in the 2nd row on starting the pattern stitch it mentions you must start short rows after the 8th ridge on the band. what does this mean and what is the 8th ridge worked.

DROPS Design 16.07.2019 kl. 11:44:

Dear Carok, a ridge is two rows/ rounds knitted with garter stitch. When you knit garter stitch back and forth, it is two rows with knit stitch, when you knit it on the round it is one round of knit and the second round is purled. I hope this help. Happy Knitting!

Nadege MAILLET 22.03.2019 - 14:07:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas les diminutions. Je le fais en taille 9/10 ans Du coup pour le dos je commence avec 84 mailles Si je fais 1-2-2-2-2 fois 2 mailles je retire déjà 18 mailles et 2-2-3-1-2 fois 1 mailles je retire 10 mailles + les 18 précédentes ca fais 28 mailles retirées. Comment je fais pour arriver à 74 mailles ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 22.03.2019 kl. 15:53:

Bonjour Mme Maillet, en taille 9/10 ans, vous allez rabattre de chaque côté 2 fois 2 m et 1 fois 1 m soit 10 m au total, il va rester: 84-10= 74 mailles. Bon tricot!

Penny Balding 07.02.2019 - 17:34:

I would like to ask when doing the measurements for the jacket, ie for the button holes on the band, plus measuring for the length up to the armholes, from where is the measurement taken from? On the same row the length of the band done in garter st is different from the length taken in the panel of cable stitches, and is different again when measurement is taken over the stocking stitch panel. For the size 5/6 year old, there is as much as 5cm difference.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 11:00:

Dear Mrs Balding, there shouldn't be noticeable difference in height between stocking stitch and cable patterns, and there should be no difference in height with the band stitches thanks to the short rows. The height should be then the same measured anywhere in the jacket. Happy knitting!

Vienne 17.01.2019 - 15:45:

Bonjour, J'ai bien réussi le corps du gilet et je commence maintenant les manches. J'ai une interrogation au niveau du diagramme A2. Pouvez vous me confirmez que la première ligne de 18m du diagramme A2 est à l'envers. C'est à dire que les 6 mailles en croix du début de A2 doivent être tricoté à l'endroit puisqu'on est en jersey envers? Merci pour votre retour. Cordialement Elisabeth VIENNE

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 16:12:

Bonjour Mme Vienne, les manches se tricotent en rond sur les aiguilles doubles pointes, tous les rangs du diagramme seront ainsi lus sur l'endroit de droite à gauche jusqu'à l'arrondi de la manche. On tricote ensuite les rangs sur l'envers en les lisant de gauche à droite - au moment de rabattre les mailles pour l'arrondi, ajustez bien pour que les rangs avec torsades soient toujours sur l'endroit. Les mailles avec des croix = jersey envers et les mailles blanches = jersey endroit (vu sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Vienne 10.04.2018 - 22:04:

Bonjour, Dans les explications sur la veste je ne vois pas de mention du point fantaisie A2. Merci de me préciser à quel moment il faut faire le point A2. Cordialement

DROPS Design 11.04.2018 kl. 09:32:

Bonjour Mme Vienne, le diagramme A.2 se fait au milieu de chaque manche. Bon tricot!

Amanda 24.11.2017 - 09:09:

Thank you for such a beautiful pattern = I am looking at making the Jacket - for a 3 year old- the size 98/104cm - what does this relate to - is it the height of the child please? Many thanks

DROPS Design 24.11.2017 kl. 11:10:

Dear Amanda, that's right 98/104 cm is the height of the child - you will find all measurements of the jacket in the chart at the bottom of the page, they are in cm taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar jacket that fits him to find out the matching size. Read more about the size here. Happy knitting!

Agnès 01.06.2017 - 08:14:

Bonjour, j'ai un problème avec le diagramme; quand je tricote les cases en croix sur l'endroit de mon tricot , je tricote les mailles à l'envers et quand je tricote mon tricot à l'envers je tricote donc ces mailles qui sont à l'endroit, en mailles envers ? donc sur l'endroit cela donne visuellement des variations endroit et envers. merci de me répondre

DROPS Design 01.06.2017 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Agnès, les croix dans les diagrammes sont des mailles en jersey envers (= à l'envers sur l'endroit et à l'endroit sur l'envers) et les cases blanches se tricotent en jersey endroit (= à l'endroit sur l'endroit et à l'envers sur l'envers). Bon tricot!

Rigault 26.02.2017 - 21:56:

Je souhaite faire ce gilet en 13-14 ans. Pourriez vous m'indiquer le nombre de maille à ajouter ou m'indiquer le calcul à effectuer. Merci de votre aide, je n'ai pas trouvé de gilet aussi beau que celui-ci .

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 11:24:

Bonjour Mme Rigault, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande, mais vous pouvez vous recalculer sur la base de votre échantillon, de vos mesures finales avec les explications. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider si besoin. Bon tricot!

Franca Vassiliou 14.02.2016 - 20:12:

Je ne comprends pas la note " toutes les 8 cotes mousses....aller retour..... Pouvez vous m expliquer? Merci

DROPS Design 15.02.2016 kl. 11:24:

Bonjour Mme Vassiliou, toutes les 8 côtes mousse, on va tricoter des rangs raccourcis sur les mailles des bordures devant seulement pour éviter que les bordures ne resserrent la veste (il faut plus de rangs au point mousse qu'en point fantaisie pour la même hauteur): tricotez 2 rangs sur les 18-24 premières m, 1 rang sur toutes les m, 2 rangs sur les 18-24 premières m (= de l'autre côté). Bon tricot!
