On next row from RS switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work as follows: Work 6 sts in garter st, A.1 (= 16 sts), A.2 (= 16 sts) over the next 256-256-304-304-352-352 sts, A.3 (= 17 sts) over the next 17 sts, finish with 6 sts in garter st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1-A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 229-229-265-265-301-301 sts on needle. Work next row as follows from RS: 6 sts in garter st, A.4 (= 12 sts) over the next 204-204-240-240-276-276 sts, A.5 (= 13 sts), finish with 6 sts in garter st. When A.4-A.5 have been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 22 cm / 8 3/4''. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.

Work like this for 4 rows AT THE SAME TIME on last row bind off the middle of the 11 sts in garter st in each side = 227-227-263-263-299-299 sts.

Bonjour au niveau des diagrammes les rangs pairs sont tricotés en rangs envers ?

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Mme Deleysses, tous les rangs figurent dans le diagramme, ceux sur l'endroit aussi bien que ceux sur l'envers. Tricotez les rangs envers soit à l'envers (= case blanches) soit à l'endroit (cases avec un rond noir) en fonction des diagrammes. Bon tricot!

Jackie 31.01.2018 - 14:21:

Hi I have tried this section which starts with "NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE" ans ends with 6 sts in garter sts numerous times but ends each time with 31 sts that does not fit in the patter. I am knitting the S size starting with 301 sts. Please Help. Thank you

DROPS Design 31.01.2018 kl. 15:47:

Dear Jackie, in size S you should have 229 sts after A.1-A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, then work A.4-A.5 and then (measure from here) work: 6 sts in garter st, A.6 (= 12 sts), A.7 (= 12 sts) over the next 48 sts, A.8 (= 13 sts), 11 sts in garter st, A.6, A.7 over the next 24 sts, A.8, 11 sts in garter st, A.6, A.7 over the next 48 sts, A.8, 6 sts in garter st = 6 + 12+48+13 + 11 + 12+24+13 + 11 + 12+48+13 + 6= 229 sts. Happy knitting!

Valeriya 14.11.2017 - 05:58:

Hi! Sorry to ask again about dividing the work for armholes. Where exactly do I have to divide? 11 stitches /2 and between them (5,1,5) after 4 raw done? or 72/2 -the length of A8/7/6 after 11 sts? I am doing the M size. Are you planning your website in Russian? A bit hard to translate your patterns ))))

DROPS Design 14.11.2017 kl. 09:27:

Dear Vaelriya, in size M you should have: 6 sts in garter st, A.6, A.7 over the next 48, A.8, 5 sts in garter st, bind off 1 st for armhole, 5 sts in garter st, A.6, A.7 over the next 24 sts, A.8, 11 sts in garter st, A.6, A.7 over the next 48 sts, A.8, 6 sts in garter st. For any individual assistance in Russian you are welcome to contact your DROPS store. Happy knitting!

Francesca 08.09.2017 - 15:08:

Salve ho bisogno di aiuto per continuare la lavorazione. Sono arrivata a lavorare il davanti sinistro, per passare al davanti destro devo tagliare il filo quando metto le maglie in attesa? Come faccio a iniziare a lavorare il dietro?

DROPS Design 08.09.2017 kl. 17:04:

Buongiorno Francesca. Per il davanti destro deve lavorare le ultime maglie messe in attesa sul ferma maglie. Sarebbe meglio iniziare un nuovo gomitolo. Le maglie che restano sul ferma maglie, sono le maglie del dietro che lavorerà dopo aver completato il davanti destro. Buon lavoro!

Claire 01.03.2017 - 15:00:

Beautiful pattern! Do you have any recommendations for using a single yarn instead of two types of yarn? Weight or ply would be very helpful. Thanks in advance!

DROPS Design 01.03.2017 kl. 17:16:

Dear Claire, 2 strands yarn group A = 1 strand yarn group C, read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Biggi 12.01.2017 - 14:08:

Jetzt habe ich es verstanden. Hatte voll den Denkfehler. Jetzt is der Groschen gefallen. Sorry LG

Biggi 12.01.2017 - 10:25:

Liebes Team Ich verstehe den Anfang nicht. Da steht über 256 machen die A3 weiter Stricken. Aber muss ich nicht im Wechsel A1 A2 A3 A1 A2 A3 usw. Stricken ? Ich komme nicht auf die 301 Maschen. Irgendwie stehe ich auf der Leitung 😅 LG

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 16:55:

Liebe Biggi, so sollen Sie die 301 M stricken: 6 M Kraus re, A.1 (= 16 M), A.2 über die nächsten 256 M stricken dh 16 x die 16 M in A.2, dann stricken Sie A.3 (= 17 M) und 6 M Kraus re = 6+16+256 (= 16x16) + 17+6=301. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Michela 16.12.2016 - 18:54:

Salve vorrei realizzarlo ma liscio senza trafori.tra l altro temo di non capire bene le indicazioni visto che sono una principiante.e se posso usare i ferri normali invece dei circolari?uso lavorare tenendo il ferro sotto l ascella.adoro lavorare voglio imparare mi aiutate?grazie

DROPS Design 16.12.2016 kl. 19:49:

Buonasera Michela. Generalmente i cardigan aperti si riescono a lavorare con i ferri dritti senza modificare le istruzioni. In questo modello particolare vengono consigliati i ferri circolari per il numero molto alto di m da avviare e con i ferri dritti potrebbe risultare difficile. Buon lavoro!

Monika 10.10.2016 - 23:00:

Miten tuo oikea etukappale neulotaan peilikuvana? Senhän täytyy kumminkin mennä niin, että 6s ainaoikean edessä on kaavio A8. Eli 5s ainaoikein, A6, A7, A8 ja 6s ainaoikein. Muutenhan se ei toimi, kun kaikki kappaleet yhdistetään ja aletaan neuloo helmaa kohden.

Nicole 23.08.2016 - 12:51:

Bei den Ärmeln sollen am Anfang der Runde für die Armausschnitte 4 Maschen 5x abgekettet werden. Dann komme ich bei xl von 68 Maschen auf 48Maschen. Zielwert ist jedoch mit 28 Maschen angegeben. Können sie mir dazu helfen? MfG Nicole

DROPS Design 25.08.2016 kl. 18:21:

Liebe Nicole, Sie ketten beidseitig 5 x 4 Maschen ab, das sind dann 40 Maschen total, somit kommen Sie auf die angegebenen 28 Maschen. Viel Spass beim Stricken!
