INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 1 stitch before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

BIND-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

Can this be knitted with the cowl neck attached please? If so please can you advise the best way to do this please? Thanks

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 12:56:

Dear Maralyn, the detachable collar is worked over a larger number of stitches than the neck edge is worked, so that it is wider. We are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every single request, but you can find find inspiration from our patterns with high collar and similar tension. Happy knitting!

Maralyn 20.03.2019 - 11:57:

Can you advise of the best yarn to knit this in other than the Drops Alpaca boucle please? I know you suggest yarns but wonder if you have seen any yarns made up in this pattern. Thanks

DROPS Design 20.03.2019 kl. 13:33:

Dear Maralyn, you can check the alternatives yarn with our yarn converter, but noone will give the same texture as Alpaca Bouclé here - read more about alternatives here and do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store for any assistance choosing a yarn - even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Hola!, Adoro esta página, son de real gran ayuda para todo amante del tejido. Casi nunca tengo dudas con sus patrones pues generalmente están muy bien explicados, pero esta vez, en el patrón “Wellness”, faltó la explicación de los bolsillos... Les agradeceré una pequeña guía al respecto, Gracias

Hola Carolina. Ha sido un fallo al publicar el patrón. Ya está solucionado. Gracias por avisar.
