Hi there. Thanks for such great designs. When working the pattern sections/ motifs (e.g. A2), do you work bottom up or top down? I've just knitted the socks and the pattern seems to be in reverse as I worked it top down. I've just started reading another Drops pattern and I am confused if I should be working the pattern from the bottom up or top down. Perhaps this could be mentioned in the patterns? Thanks very much.

Hi Nicki, The pattern is worked top down. Happy knitting!

Vlak voor het einde staat er 'ga verder tot een totale hoogte 22 cm vanaf de markeerder op de hiel (=ong 5cm nog te breien).' echter ik heb pas 10cm gbreid vanaf de hiel en moet dus nog 12cm breien. Verder klopten alle maten wel van dit patroon. Is dit een fout van jullie of heb ik iets fout gedaan bij de hiel?

Hoi Corine, Hiermee wordt bedoeld dat je, nadat je de 22 cm hebt gebreid nog 5 cm moet breien (voor de teen). Dus je breit eerst gewoon die 22 cm vanaf de markeerder op de hiel en dan brei je nog een klein stukje waarin de minderingen voor de tenen worden gemaakt.

Vissa mönster under kategorin "Julverkstad" går inte att skriva ut! Bl.a detta mönster. Med vänlig hälsning Yvonne

Hej Yvonne. Vi har testet og vi havde ingen problemer med at skrive ud. Pröv at "clear cache" (sorry, ved ikke hvad det hedder paa svensk) og genstart din maskine.
