Work next row as follows from RS: Work 1 st in garter st, 48-48-52-52-55-55 sts in stockinette st, work A.5 over the next 6 sts, (marker), A.6 over the next 6 sts, 43-43-53-53-57-57 sts in stockinette st, A.7 over the next 6 sts, (marker), A.8 over the next 6 sts, 48-48-52-52-55-55 sts in stockinette st, finish with 1 st in garter st. Repeat A.5 to A.8 over the 6 sts on each side of each marker 2-3-2-3-4-5 times in total, then repeat the first 0-0-6-4-4-4 rows of A.5 to A.8 1 more times.

Ich bin am verzweifeln. Stricke den Pullover mit Arm. Bin bei Größe XL A5-A8 3x stricken + 4R von A5-A8. Macht 28 Reihen. Ich soll ab der 2. Reihe verkürzt stricken bis noch 23 M beim glatt re Teil übrig sind dass ist dann immer 1M weniger und schon 30 Reihen. Dann brauche ich bei XL nochmal 4 Reihen. Wo bekomme ich die 6 fehlenden Reihen her? Oder wo ist mein Denkfehler? Vielen Dank.

Magliano 19.07.2018 - 17:55:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas le début des explications pour le dos, serai t il possible d en avoir des supplémentaires? Voir une vidéo ou photo? D avance merci

DROPS Design 20.07.2018 kl. 14:15:

Bonjour Mme Magliano, le dos se tricote comme le devant, mais cette fois, on commence en rond en répétant A.1 4 fois au total en rond (pas d'encolure V dans le dos), et, après A.1, on continue ensuite en allers et retours. Bon tricot!

Maria 18.07.2018 - 19:33:

¡Hola! Estoy parada en las hileras cortas. Para la talla M, se debe reducir 2 veces 6 puntos en cada lado. También hay indicaciones para las demás tallas. ¿Cuál es la disminución a seguir para la talla S? ¡Muchas gracias!

DROPS Design 21.07.2018 kl. 20:39:

Hola Maria. Las explicaciones en el texto son para la talla S. Para el resto de las tallas los siguientes párrafos especifican que se debe añadir o no trabajar de la explicación general para la talla S.

Ludmilla 10.07.2018 - 00:49:

Upplösningen är för dålig på diagrammen. Missade ett omslag pga detta och fick repa upp. Men jättefint mönster och roligt att sticka! The resolution of the diagrams is too low. I didn't make one of the yo because of this. But really nice pattern and fun to knit!

Linda 29.06.2018 - 17:34:

Bonjour, j\'ai du mal comprendre à la fin des rangs raccourcis. on débute 1 rang sur endroit en laissant 26 de chaque coté puis 6 x 2 fois. à la fin de 2e fois on se retrouve sur un rang endroit puisqu\'on tourne, que fait -on ? doit-on faire un rang endroit et un envers sur tout le travail ou bien continuer jusqu\'à la 2e diminution et puis tourner et faire un autre rand envers jusqu\'à l\'épaule? merci de l\'aide

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 08:45:

Bonjour Linda, tricotez un rang sur l'endroit jusqu'à l'épaule puis le rang suivant sur l'envers jusqu'à l'épaule et continuez comme indiqué (avec 46 m point mousse de chaque côté). Bon tricot!

Susan Tighe 28.06.2018 - 08:54:

Thank you for the answer to my last question . The front has worked out well . Now for the back ... probably a silly question but you say to knit in the round to start and then talk of rows rather than rounds . Do you join after first round to knit the piece in the round like you would a hat or a sock or work in rows back and forth ?? Many thanks

DROPS Design 28.06.2018 kl. 09:01:

Dear Mrs Tighe, back piece is first worked in the round, ie you will cast on 6 sts and repeat A.1 4 times in total in the round (while you have repeated A.1 only 3 times on back piece worked back and forth). After you have worked A.1 one time in height, you will now work back and forth. Happy knitting!

Susan Tighe 19.06.2018 - 21:26:

When doing short rows and turning 6 less stitches in subsequent rows does this mean you knit 6 more stitches before you turn or 6 less stitches ? For example in the first and second turn I had to knit until there were 26 stitches left on the row on the next row do I knit till there are 20 stitches left and turn or when there are 32 left and then turn ?? Thank you

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 08:05:

Dear Mrs Tighe, you will work 6 sts less for every turn, ie on next row after the 26 sts, you will work until 32 sts remain. Happy knitting!

Bettina 01.05.2018 - 16:34:

A.5 bis A.8 über die 6 M beidseitig jedes Markierers insgesamt 2-3-2-3-4-5 x arb, bedeutet das, das man innerhalb der Markierer einschließlich der 6 M rechts und links die Muster stricken soll?

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 10:24:

Liebe Bettina, auf beiden Seiten der beiden Markierung werden Sie A.5-A.6 und A.7-A.8 stricken (wie zuvor beschrieben). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marilyn Farnell 24.03.2018 - 16:08: https://www.garnstud ...
