BODY: (worked in the round)
= 138-150-162-182-202-222 stitches. Work the next 3 rounds 3 times as follows: Continue with pattern and stockinette stitch as before and work 2 RIDGES – see description above, over the middle 12-12-14-18-24-30 stitches in each side (purl 1 round, knit 1 round, purl 1 round). Then cut the strand. The next round begins 7 stitches before the marker thread, between the back and front pieces – this is now the beginning of the round.

I’m not so sure how to understand the 1 increase on each side the A4 + 1 increase on each side. Can you help?

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 13:59:

Dear Mrs Wartel, you will increase on the sides as follows, beginning 1 stitch before A.4: increase 1 stitch (= yarn over), K1, work A.4, K1, increase 1 stitch (= yarn over). Happy knitting!

Moin warum werden bei den vorderen Schultern keine zunahmen für den Ärmel Ausschnitt gestrickt? Gruß Barbara

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 10:16:

Liebe Frau Krause, es wird auch bein dem Vorderteil zugenommen, wenn die Arbeit 17-16 cm misst - siehe am Ende VORDERTEIL/ RECHTE SCHULTER. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ekaterina 19.07.2018 - 22:39:

Sollte es hier vielleicht einen Absatz "Fertigstellen" geben (mit einer Bemerkung, dass die Schulternaehte zu schliessen sind)?
