EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

----------------------------------------------------------

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

STRIPES:
* Work 1 ridge brown, 1 ridge grey *, work from *-*.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side by knitting 2 stitches together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 92 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 4) = 20.5. In this example work alternately approx. every 19th and 20th stitch and every 20th and 21st stitch together and do not decrease over bands.

BUTTONHOLES:
Decrease for buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from edge together and make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over = hole. Bind off decrease for buttonholes when piece measures 45-47-48-50-51-53 cm = 17 3/4"-18 1/2"-19"-19 3/4"-20"-21" In addition decrease for a buttonhole on neck edge.

Ne pas oublier les BOUTONNIÈRES – voir explications ci-dessus, quand l'ouvrage mesure 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm. et :Ouvrir les boutonnières quand l'ouvrage mesure 45-47-48-50-51-53 cm Non! Cela n'a pas été corrigé. Quelle est la bonne information? Merci.

DROPS Design 31.01.2019 kl. 13:29:

Bonjour Mme Desrousseaux, effectivement, la hauteur des boutonnières n'avait pas été corrigée dans le texte, c'est bien celle de la correction qu'il faut prendre en compte, la bonne hauteur figure maintenant aux deux endroits du modèle, merci! Bon tricot!

Chantal Osorio 11.12.2018 - 22:29:

Comment fait on pour le devant droit pour faire une boutonnière à 48 cm de haut alors qu\'on a laissé les mailles en attente au 47° cm????? Je ne comprends pas. Merci de m\'éclairer. CO

Bonjour Mme Osorio, merci pour votre retour, la hauteur des boutonnières a été corrigée. Bon tricot!

Rina Spoorenberg 18.11.2018 - 09:39:

Ik wil dit model graag breien van Alpaca. Hoeveel wol heb ik dan nodig en hoeveel steken zet ik op?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 07:10:

Dag Rina

Als je deze in Alpaca breit, brei je met 2 draden (2 draden van garencategorie A) en heb je ongeveer de zelfde hoeveelheid in gewicht nodig.

Carol Derrick 16.11.2018 - 14:37:

I love your designs, but please can we have patterns in the more usual format...ie worked from the bottom up on two needles ?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 15:31:

Dear Mrs Derrick, this pattern is worked bottom up, and entirely back and forth on needles - we try to have both kind of patterns so that every one can choose. You'll find here how to adapt a pattern from circular needle to straight needles. Happy knitting!

S Oosterink 05.08.2018 - 22:00:

Comfy and Cozy

Marie-Line 01.08.2018 - 12:08:
