What is the yardage/meterage needed for size M

DROPS Design 14.11.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Hadass, you will find total amount of yarn required in size M under tab "Materials", you can calculate the yardage for this size with the help of the informations in the shadecard and get some further assistance from your DROPS store in your country. Happy knitting!

Jen 21.11.2016 - 02:49:

I am having trouble understanding the Raglan increase instructions after placing the markers. Pattern says inc for Raglan see explanation above but that is explaining increases not the actual rows.

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 10:39:

Dear Jen, the inc for raglan will be different on body and on sleeve, on body you will inc on each side of 2nd and 5th marker (mid front + mid back every round then every other round (see your size for the number of times), and for sleeves you will inc after 3rd/6th marker + before 4th/1st marker every round/other round/4th round. Happy knitting!

Marta 08.11.2016 - 13:45:

Well, well - almost like the famous "Forbrydelsen/The Killing" sweater. Just several slight adjustments and it will be the same model. I'm gonna go for it, I think! :)

Hanne 06.10.2016 - 12:39:

Jeg er nu igang med trøje nr. 2. Ang. Hulborten foran og bagpå, den bliver usymmetrisk, med større huller på venstre side, set som når man sidder og strikker på arbejdet. Kan det afhjælpes?

DROPS Design 06.10.2016 kl. 14:25:

Hej Hanne. Nu tager du ud med 1 slaa om paa begge sider af midtfor/midtbag i samme pind og strikker dem ogsaa begge ret. Jeg kan ikke forstaa hvordan du saa faar större huller paa den ene side i forhold til den anden - andet at det har noget at göre med hvor stramt de strikkes. Jeg har desvaerre ikke nogen ideer paa det.

Hanne 03.10.2016 - 11:59:

Skal man ikke skifte til et pindenummer mindre på den nederste kant af kroppen? Det står ikke nævnt? Men på ærmerne skal man skifte pind?

DROPS Design 03.10.2016 kl. 12:23:

Hej Hanne. Nej, det tror jeg ikke. Jeg tror underkanten kan blive for stram hvis du skifter til en mindre p

Susanne Jensen 15.08.2016 - 19:15:

Hvor begynder omgangen, efter raglanudtagningen.Altså når jeg har slået nye masker op under ærmet?

DROPS Design 08.09.2016 kl. 13:23:

Hej Susanne. Jamen, det er jo saa efter du har slaaet de sidste nye masker op som der staar i opskriften: i overgangen mellem m under venstre aerme og start paa forstk vil jeg mene.

Alessia Camilli 10.08.2016 - 15:24:

Quando inizio a lavorare il raglan come faccio a capire se devo aumentare ad ogni giro oppure ogni due giri? Grazie

DROPS Design 10.08.2016 kl. 15:34:

Buonasera Alessia. Gli aumenti sono diversi sul davanti/dietro e sulle maniche. Per es, per la taglia L, sul davanti/dietro aumenta ad ogni giro 20 volte e poi aumenta ogni 2 giri 12 volte. Per la maniche aumenta 2 volte ad ogni giro, poi 21 volte ogni 2 giri. Provi a fare una tabella: in riga il numero del giro e due colonne, una per le maniche e una per il dav/dietro. Per ogni giro metta una “x” se deve aumentare per le maniche e/o per il dav/dietro. P.es ai giri 1 e 2 aumenta sia sul dav/dietro che sulle maniche; giro 3 solo sul dav/dietro; giro 4 sia sul dav/dietro che sulle maniche e così via. Buon lavoro!

Fran Hoffman 01.08.2016 - 15:03:

There is no schematic at the bottom of the pattern. Can you provide one?

Anna 01.08.2016 kl. 15:11:

There is, you must scroll down.

Fran Hofrman 01.08.2016 - 02:55:

I can find no measurements for the sizes of this pattern. Can you provide them?

DROPS Design 01.08.2016 kl. 09:59:

Dear Mrs Hofrman, you will find at the very bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements in cm taken flat from side to side. Read more about measurement chart here and convert into inches here. Happy knitting!

Heather Eeles 29.06.2016 - 09:01:
