RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of every A.1 (= 8 stitches increased on row):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next row work yarn over twisted to avoid holes Then work the new stitches in seed stitch (double vertically).

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 86 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 8 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 5) = 15.6. In this example knit approx. every 15th and 16th stitch together and do not decrease of bands.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeves):
Work until 4 stitches remain before marker and knit 2 together, work 4 stitches in seed stitch (= marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

BUTTONHOLES (top down):
Decrease for buttonholes on right band (when garment is worn). Decrease from right side when 3 stitches remain on row as follows: Make 1 yarn over, knit the next 2 stitches together, knit last stitch. On next row knit yarn over to make holes.
Decrease first buttonhole when rib in neck measures approx. 4 cm / 1½''. Then decrease the next 6 approx. 10 cm / 4'' between each.

Hei, kun minulla on 161 silmukkaa työssä ja alan neuloa etu- ja takakappaletta (hihat apulangalla), niin en saa helmineuletta oikein: jälkimmäisen hihan kohdalle päädyttyäni huomasin, että kuuden luodun silmukan tienoilla joutuisin tekemään peräkkäin kaksi oikeaa tai nurjaa silmukkaa, jotta kerroksen loppu helmineule menisi oikein. Miten tämä pitäisi tehdä oikeaoppisesti?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 17:25:

Hei, helmineuleen pitäisi jatkua rikkoutumattomana, koska apulangalle siirretään parillinen määrä silmukoita ja tilalle luodaan myös parillinen määrä silmukoita.

Buenas, estoy iniciando las mangas y no se cómo disminuir para que no me queden dos puntos de derecho juntos. Por favor su ayuda. Les saluda. Francisca Gracias y saludos.

Jeg vil gerne strikke denne cardigan ensfarvet i 1tråd Alpaca Silk uni colour + 1 tråd Alpaca uni colour ?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 13:06:

Hej Lonne, for at få samme strikkefasthed (for rigtige mål) som der står i opskriften skal du bruge 3 tråde fra garngruppe A (se link i opskriften). God fornøjelse!

¡Hola! Muchas gracias por los patrones que comparten. Acabo de empezar esta chaqueta. Tengo el escote, el primer ojal y la primera fila de aumentos para el canesú tal y como se indica en el patrón, pero no puedo avanzar porque no se explica cómo van los aumentos en las siguientes vueltas del canesú (es imposible que sean iguales a la primera). ¿Podrían especificarlo, por favor? Muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 08.04.2018 kl. 19:12:

Hola Mercedes, las siguientes filas del canesú se trabajan como la primera fila del canesú- fíjate en el RAGLÁN.

Very nice patterns I've been using for a few years now as love Drops Alpaca Yarns but just lately I can not print or use the patterns off line in iBooks as all the diagrams don't show.
