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!

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!

Wendy Burfitt 06.06.2017 - 17:19:

But that will make the stitch count wrong - there will be only 54 stitches on at the end.....

DROPS Design 07.06.2017 kl. 08:54:

Dear Mrs Burfitt, you should have the correct number of sts, let's take size M: 38 sts + 8 sts inc in band + 26 sts for sleeve - 6 sts dec for neck - 8 sts cast off for lapel + 6 sts cast on for collar = 38 + 8 + 26 - 6 - 8 + 6 = 64 sts. Happy knitting!

Wendy Burfitt 06.06.2017 - 13:04:

After the sleeve cast on the pattern says to decrease 1 st every 4th row inside the band for 6 times. There appear to be no compensating increasings at this point. if this is correct the stitch counts (63-64-65 etc.) later on are incorrect. do I need to do increasings as well as decreasings to make the stitch count correct or is that number wrong? thanks

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 15:09:

Dear Mrs Burfitt, you will decrease for neckline (inside band) 1 st a total of 6 times and then cast off the first 8 sts from RS and cast on 6 new ssts at the end of next row from WS for lapel. So that you dec 6 sts for neckline, and cast off 8 sts then cast on 6 sts, there are 14 sts for collar. Happy knitting!

Verzoek om hulp: mijn proeflapje van 11 st. bij 15 toeren met naalden 8 wordt maar 7 cm. hoog. Ik brei niet vast.

DROPS Design 12.04.2017 kl. 15:03:

Hoi Maya, Probeer eens een proeflapje te maken met kleinere naalden bv naald 6 of 7. Zelf heb ook dit 'probleem' ;) en gebruik altijd kleinere naalden. Als je een proeflapje maakt, zet dan wat meer steken op dan wordt aangegeven in de stekenverhouding, zodat je in het midden van het lapje kunt meten en de zijkanten wegvallen, want de kantsteken zijn vaak niet representatief voor de stekenverhouding. Succes!

Matei Loredana 25.02.2017 - 09:28:

Bonjour, vous dites que le devant gauche on le fait comme le devant droit, mais la bordure, si on est sur l'endroit, ce fait a la fin du rang, non, pas au debout de rang????

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 09:37:

Bonjour Mme Matei, tout à fait, la bordure devant pour le devant gauche se fera en fin de rang sur l'endroit, on monte les mailles de la manche en fin de rang sur l'envers et ainsi de suite. Bon tricot!

I made this one in beige in size L. A Nice and comfortable result. These farms together make it verf warm. The amount of yarn that is given, seems a bit to much. I only needed 300 gram of alpaca boucle and 125 gram of alpaca brushed silk.
