Prachtig vestje! Wat me opvalt is dat het op naalden 3,5 en 4 wordt gebreid terwijl voor Delight naald 2,5 wordt aangegeven. Klopt dit? Is het vestje dan niet heel los gebreid?

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 14:58:

Dag Marijke,

Het vestje wordt inderdaad ietsje losser gebreid. Delight is een soort sokkenwol en kan voor truien en vesten e.d. best ietsje losser gebreid worden.

LYDIA 18.08.2018 - 16:06:

Bonjour, je tricote ce modèle en taille xl mais je ne comprends pas le calcul des diminutions pour les manches : (1x4m + 11x2m)x2 = 8+44=52m. pourquoi trouvez vous 29 ? merci pour la réponse

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 17:28:

Bonjour Lydia. Les 29 mailles sont les mailles qui restent après les diminutions. Avant de diminuer vous avez 81 mailles. Vous diminuez 52 mailles. La différence vous donne 81 - 52 = 29 mailles comme dans les explications. Bon tricot!

Hilde 04.03.2018 - 05:31:

Habe gerade das Rückenteil fertig, und festgestellt, dass die Angaben für den Halsausschnitt in Anleitung und Diagramm nicht übereinstimmen. Für Größe L sollen 20 M abgekettet werden, im Diagramm sind 19 cm angegeben. LG Hilde

Ingrid 09.01.2017 - 08:33:

Ik begrijp niet het breien met een rondbreinaald in dit vest als het achterpand, voorpand als aparte stukken worden gebreid. Bij rondbreien komen er toch geen zijnaden?

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 14:43:

Hoi Ingrid. Je kan ook heen en weer breien op een rondbreinaald (net zoals op rechte naalden). Je kan voor dit patroon ook een rechte nld gebruiken.

Emanuela Noris 29.03.2016 - 15:58:

Sto lavorando il dietro. dopo aver lavorato 2 "coste" sulle 28 m centrali, mi si dice di intrecciarne solo 18 per la scollatura. Non è che occorre intrecciarne 28? Mi sembrano poche 18 per quel tipo di collo e poi non mi spiego i 18 cm delle misure riportate nel diagramma. Grazie per l'aiuto :)

DROPS Design 29.03.2016 kl. 16:10:

Buongiorno Emanuela, non ci sono errori nel n° di m da intrecciare per la scollatura: sta lavorando il dietro, la maggior parte degli intrecci per il collo vengono eseguiti sul davanti. I 18 cm dello schema delle misure indicano la larghezza del collo sul dietro. Buon lavoro!

Susie Dayman 11.03.2016 - 04:09:

How can I make this cardigan with full length sleeves, please? I'm a novice so will need help. Thank you.

DROPS Design 11.03.2016 kl. 09:39:

Dear Mrs Dayman, you can take inspiration from a similar pattern with same tension - your DROPS store may also have some tips & advices for you. Happy knitting!
