Bonjour, je pense qu'il y a un problème d'explication pour les manches les dimensions sont à l'envers de la plus grande taille à la plus petite en principe c'est l'inverse et d'autres parts si la manche doit faire 50 cm pour une taille XXXl il n'est pas possible de faire 7 augmentations tous les 13 cm cela ferait 91 cm cordialement

DROPS Design 18.01.2019 kl. 08:22:

Bonjour Patricia, les manches sont plus courtes dans les grandes tailles car les épaules et l'encolure sont plus larges. Ainsi, vous augmentez à 7 cm tous les 4,5 cm = les augmentations sont terminées à 34 cm de hauteur totale. Vous pouvez volontiers modifier la longueur des manches si vous le souhaitez en vous basant sur les mesures du schéma et à votre convenance. Bon tricot!

Je voudrai faire ce modèle 168-18 dans les coloris gris, quelle laines dois-je prendre pour avoir un beau dégradé ?
