Laetitia 19.05.2019 - 12:48:

Bonjour, Je commence le dos, j'ai déjà fait les côtes. J'en suis aux diminutions. Je tricote la taille XL, j'ai donc 178m sur mes aiguilles. Cependant je ne comprends pas comment on peut diminuer 12x dans la portion centrale : je n'ai en effet que 10 sections de 3m envers. Est-ce que je dois aussi diminuer dans les 2 sections adjacentes dans lesquelles il n'y a que 2m envers et donc n'avoir qu'1m envers ensuite à cet endroit-là ? Ça ne me paraît pas logique.

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 12:28:

Bonjour Laetitia, en taille XL vous avez 10 fois (3 m env, 2 m end), puis 1 fois 2 m env (avant A.3) = 11 sections en mailles envers, dans une des sections de 3 m env, vous pouvez tricoter 3 m ens à l'env pour diminuer 2 m et diminuer ainsi 12 m au total. Bon tricot!

Birgit Berglund 14.05.2019 - 22:04:

Hej igen! Nu har det kört ihop sig igen.Jag har nu kommit till att sticka 63m och på följande 32m ska det minskas med 8m, sedan sticka följande 63m, men det blir ju 158m! när det ska vara 146m. Jag får inte det här att gå ihop. HJÄLP

DROPS Design 15.05.2019 kl. 10:49:

Hej. Storlek L: "Sticka de första 63 m som förut, sticka de nästa 32 m, SAMTIDIGT som det minskas 8 m jämnt fördelat i partierna med am, fortsätt som förut över de resterande 63 m = 138 m." Du minskar 12 m enligt diagrammen på varv 3 + de 8 maskorna som det står i texten i de aviga partierna. 158 - 12 - 8 = 138 m. Lycka till.

Birgit Berglund 13.05.2019 - 17:51:

Jag glömde en sak, A7, det tolkar jag som om man stickar hela varvet och inte bara 4 maskor?Tack för hjälpen.

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 10:39:

Hej. Ja det stämmer, du ska sticka A.7 hela varvet (innanför 1 rätstickad kantmaska). Lycka till!

Birgit Berglund 13.05.2019 - 17:47:

Hej igen! Har ytterligare en fråga: de tre första varven (resår) gäller det för alla storlekar? Annars, om man tittar på diagramen, så är det bara 10 maskor som ska minskas på 3:e varvet för stl L. M.v.h. Birgit Berglund

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 10:35:

Hej. På resåren får man följa diagrammen för sin storlek. I storlek L minskas det 2 maskor per diagram till resåren på varv 3 (2 m x 6 diagram = 12 m). Lycka till!

Matt 09.05.2019 - 23:19:

Thanks for your previous answer. Another question: on the Right Front, it says "Work rib as follows: A.1 (= 12 sts), A.2 (find diagram for correct size), P 2, A.3, A.4, A.5 (find diagram for correct size), 1 edge st in garter st. Continue like this.." On the WS, do I P2 again should I K2? Same issue with Back Piece - there's a "P2 K2" in the middle of the charts, but the pattern doesn't say what to when coming back on the WS. Thanks.

DROPS Design 10.05.2019 kl. 07:47:

Hi Matt, Yes knitted stitches are purled from the wrong side and purled stitches are knitted. The chart is read from left to right when working back. Happy knitting!

Matt 09.05.2019 - 12:41:

Is positive ease built into the sizing and if so how much? I'm asking because the final measurements times the gauge don't seem to add up. For example, a small is 48cm, meaning 48 (front) + 48 (back) = 96cm total times 2.1 st/cm at gauge equals 201.6 stitches. Yet adding up all the body stitches (both fronts plus back minus 4 edge stitches), you get 230 stitches meaning an additional 13.5 cm of extra width. Is that correct? Thanks.

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 14:18:

Dear Matt, you will find all finished measurements in each size in the chart at the bottom of the pattern - read more about sizing here. Tension is calculated in stocking stitch, when working cables you will need more stitches to get the same width, so that this calculation cannot work here. Look at a similar jacket you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Happy knitting!

Birgit Berglund 05.05.2019 - 21:06:

På bakstycket står att jag ska maska av 8m (stl L) och att det sedan blir 138m kvar, Det stämmer inte då jag har 158m från början. Var ligger felet? Hur många m ska jag minska+

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 07:55:

Hej. Du fortsätter att sticka enligt diagrammen som tidigare och på varv 3 har du där totalt 12 minskningar. 12 minskade maskor från diagrammen + 8 minskade enligt texten = 20 minskade maskor. Lycka till!

Anne 31.03.2019 - 14:07:

Bonjour, comment fixe-t-on le col châle au dos?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 13:09:

Bonjour Anne, on assemble entre elles les mailles rabattues du col du devant droit avec celles du col du devant gauche, puis on coud le côté du col (le côté le plus court des rangs raccourcis) le long de l'encolure dos, la couture des 2 cols doit être au milieu de l'encolure dos. Bon tricot!

Vos 22.03.2019 - 15:37:

Goedemiddag, kunt u mij helpen hoe ik het linker voorpand moet beginnen met breien? Moet ik nu eerst met A 10 beginnen of met A 6?Met vriendelijke groet

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 09:21:

Dag Vos,

Voor het linker voorpand kan je het rechter voorpand volgen, maar dan brei je A.10 in plaats van A.1, A.9 in plaats van A.2 en A.6 in plaats van A.5. Het patroon wordt dus gespiegeld gebreid, maar omdat dit al verwerkt is in de aangegeven telpatronen, kun je die gewoon volgen. Je begint dus inderdaad met A.10.

Anna Runesson 20.03.2019 - 16:03:

Hej! Går det att sticka denna kofta i Merinoull istället för Lina? Eller annat garn som inte kliar? Hälsningar, Anna

DROPS Design 26.03.2019 kl. 13:41:

Hei Anna. Så lenge du får den samme strikkefastheten går det helt fint an å bytte garn. Merino Extra Fine feks, vil nok være et godt alternativ til Lima. God fornøyelse.
