Tekla 21.01.2019 - 02:20:

Hi.. At the back piece in size L, we cast on 66 sts then increase for the sleeves by 24 sts. So i have 90 sts i total. but you say at this point i should have 114 sts. Could you please explain where the difference comes from? Thanks in advance.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 06:44:

Dear Tekla, you have to cast on 24 sts on EACH side for the sleeves and you'll end up with 114 sts. Happy knitting!

Guillemette 14.11.2018 - 16:35:

Bonjour, Combien faut-il acheter de pelotes de chaque pour une taille M ? Merci de votre réponse.

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 16:41:

Bonjour Guillemette, il vous faut 7 pelotes de DROPS ALPACA BOUCLÉ et 7 pelotes de DROPS BRUSHED ALPACA SILK dans la taille M. Bon tricot!

Sylvia A. 10.11.2018 - 12:27:

Est-ce possible de modifier ce patron pour en faire une veste à manches longues? Car ce modèle est exactement ce que je cherchais sauf pour les manches!

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 09:15:

Bonjour Sylvie, probablement, toutefois, le résultat serait différent. Nous ne sommes pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chaque modèle à chaque demande. Pour toute assistance complémentaire, merci de contacter le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine - par mail ou téléphone - ou de consulter les autres modèles analogues avec manches longues. Bon tricot!

Mieke 12.08.2018 - 18:45:

Die steken opzetten lukt wel maar hoe moet ik dan minderen ?? want anders is de mouw onderaan veel te wijd

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 10:26:

Dag Mieke, In het patroon zitten verder geen minderingen in de mouw naar de manchet (/pols) toe, het blijft een wijde mouw, dus je kunt gewoon extra steken opzetten en verder het patroon volgen. Als je toch meer aanpassingen in het patroon wilt doen, dan zou je eventueel hulp kunnen vragen bij de winkel waar je het garen hebt gekocht. Het is voor ons helaas niet mogelijk om persoonlijke aanpassingen op het patroon te doen.

Mieke 11.08.2018 - 21:44:

Hallo, Graag zou ik dit vest met lange mouwen willen breien. Enig idee hoe ik dit zou moeten doen?

DROPS Design 12.08.2018 kl. 17:32:

Dag Mieke, Dit zou je kunnen doen door de laatste keer dat je steken opzet voor de mouwen bij de panden, extra steken op te zetten. Dus de keer dat je 1 keer 16-16-14-12-10-9 steken opzet, zet je meer steken op. Aan de hand van de stekenverhouding en de tekening met de maten onderaan het patroon, kun je voor jezelf uitrekenen hoeveel steken extra je op moet zetten.

Valérie Huguenot 04.06.2018 - 09:19:

Bonjour, RANGS RACCOURCIS: (...) Tricoter ainsi sur l'endroit tous les 10 rangs: (...) Tous les 10 rangs = en comptant sur la bordure (incluant les rangs raccourcis ) ou sur le jersey ?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:45:

Bonjour Mme Huguenot, répétez les rangs raccourcis tous les 10 rangs jersey - ajustez si besoin en fonction de votre tension en y incluant les rangs point mousse pour que la hauteur du point mousse soit la même que celle du jersey. Bon tricot!

Elena 18.11.2017 - 07:36:

Leider entspricht das Bild nicht der Beschreibung. Die Knofleiste ist in der Beschreibung vor der Borte, auf dem Bild jedoch in die Borte integriert.

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 10:23:

Liebe Elena, so werden die Knopflöcher gestrickt, dh wie beschrienben in den Blendenmaschen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Corbier 15.08.2017 - 08:30:

Ik maak het vest met maat XL nu zie dat met extra steken voor de mouwen voor deze maat minder steken worden opgezet dan voor de kleinere maten klopt dat?

Wendy Burfitt 07.06.2017 - 23:16:

But because you also decrease at the same time there will not be a gain of 8 stitches....

DROPS Design 08.06.2017 kl. 09:29:

Dear Mrs Burfitt, in size M: you will inc 8 times 1 st on band and dec 6 times 1 st for neck, then cast off 8 sts and cast on 6 sts + inc a total of 26 sts for sleeve. Starting in size M with 38 sts + (8-6-8+6) + 26 = 38 + 0 + 26 = 64 sts. The first 8 sts are inc in the band and cast off later, then you cast on 6 sts for collar, and you dec 6 sts for neck (after band sts). The number of sts in pattern will dec and the number of sts of band will inc. Adding the number of sts for sleeve you will have the 64 sts in size M. Happy knitting!

Wendy Burfitt 07.06.2017 - 12:42:

Sorry to be so persistent but the 8 band stitches are included in the original cast on number and not additional as far as I can see in the pattern. if this is not correct - where are they cast on?

DROPS Design 07.06.2017 kl. 15:59:

Dear Mrs Burfitt, you will inc 8 sts on band: " When piece measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm, inc 1 st in band – see INCREASE TIP. Inc like this every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 8 times in total (= 16 sts in band), AT THE SAME TIME dec sts in stocking st inside band st, cast on new sts for sleeve and cast off sts for vent in collar as follows: READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!". Happy knitting!
