EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (in the round - applies to hat):
1 ridge vertically = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

MOSS STITCH:
Row 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
Row 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit.
Repeat 2nd row upwards.

INCREASE TIP (applies to overall):
Increase inside 1 edge stitch. All increases are done from the right side.
Increase by making 1 yarn over. Knit yarn over twisted on next row, it should not make holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to overall):
Decrease inside 1 edge stitch. All decreases are done from the right side.
Decrease as follows after 1 edge stitch: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over.
Decrease as follows before 1 edge stitch: Knit 2 together.

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

BEGIN PIECE FOR OVERALL HERE:

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

OVERALL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work from bottom up. First work 2 legs, then work the legs together and knit back and forth up to sleeve. Cast on stitches for sleeve in each side of piece, and work front and back piece separately until finished. Sew shoulder and sleeve seams and crochet an edge around the opening on overall at the end. Work entire overall in moss stitch.

LEG:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the stitches.
Cast on 46-50-54-58 (66-70) stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) on circular needle size 3 mm with light lavender. Work in MOSS STITCH over all stitches - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 6 cm, increase 1 stitch in each side of piece inside 1 edge stitch (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this every 3rd-4th-5th-5th (8th-8th) row 11-11-12-14 (13-16) times in total = 68-72-78-86 (92-102) stitches. When piece measures 15-18-21-24 (29-34) cm, cast off 5 stitches at the beginning of the 2 next rows for gusset (i.e. cast off stitches in each side of piece) = 58-62-68-76 (82-92) stitches. Put piece aside and knit another leg the same way.

OVERALL:
Slip both legs on to same circular needle size 3 mm, with cast off stitches towards each other = 116-124-136-152 (164-184) stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work 6 rows moss stitch back and forth, begin mid front.
Then work as follows: Cast on 3 stitches at the end of the next 2 rows (for front bands) = 122-130-142-158 (170-190) stitches. Insert 1 marker after 32-34-37-41 (44-49) stitches in from each side. Move the markers upwards when working, they mark front pieces and back piece.
Now increase stitches mid front (i.e. in each side of piece) so that the front pieces overlap. Increase 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch in each side of piece (= 2 stitches increased) - read INCREASE TIP! Increase on every 4th row 3-2-0-3 (2-13) more times, then on every 6th row 8-11-16-17 (21-15) times (= 12-14-17-21 (24-29) stitches increased in total in each side of piece) = 44-48-54-62 (68-78) stitches on each front piece = 146-158-176-200-218-248 stitches in total.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! DECREASE MID FRONT FOR NECK INSIDE 1 EDGE STITCH WHILE AT THE SAME TIME DIVIDING THE PIECE AND CASTING ON STITCHES FOR SLEEVE.
DECREASE MID FRONT FOR NECK AS FOLLOWS:
Work over all stitches until piece measures 17-20-25-28 (32-34) cm from marker thread. Then decrease 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch for neck in each side of piece (= 2 stitches decreased) - read DECREASE TIP! Decrease like this on every other row 20-24-27-31 (35-41) more times, then on every 4th row 2 times (= 23-27-30-34 (38-44) stitches decreased in total in each side of piece).
DIVIDE THE PIECE AND CAST ON STITCHES FOR SLEEVE AS FOLLOWS:
RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
When piece measures 21-26-30-35 (40-43) cm from marker thread, divide piece at the 2 markers and finish front and back piece separately. Adjust so that next row is from right side. Now work over stitches until first marker (= right front piece). Slip the remaining stitches on a stitch holder. Now cast on stitches for sleeve at the end of every row from right side as follows (NOTE: Continue to decrease inside 1 edge stitch at the beginning of row as before): Cast on 4-6-6-6 (6-6) stitches in 4-4-5-6 (7-8) times in total, then 17-17-16-16 (18-20) stitches 1 time in total (= 33-41-46-52 (60-68) stitches cast on in total for sleeve).
When all stitches are cast on and all decreases are done, there are 54-62-70-80 (90-102) stitches on needle. Work until piece measures 45-53-62-70 (81-90) cm in total, measured from leg to shoulder. Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work over the last stitches slipped on a stitch holder, until marker.
Work as right front piece but reversed - i.e. cast on stitches for sleeve at the end of row from wrong side. Continue to decrease inside 1 edge stitch at the end of row as before for neck.

BACK PIECE:
= 58-62-68-76 (82-92) stitches. Cast on new stitches at the end of every row in each side for sleeves as follows: Cast on 4-6-6-6 (6-6) stitches in 4-4-5-6 (7-8) times in total, then 17-17-16-16 (18-20) stitches 1 time in total (= 33-41-46-52 (60-68) stitches cast on in total for sleeve in each side of piece) = 124-144-160-180 (202-228) stitches.
When piece measures 44-52-61-69 (80-89) cm in total, cast off the middle 16-20-20-20 (22-24) stitches for neck and finish each shoulder/sleeve separately (= 54-62-70-80 (90-102) stitches remain on each shoulder). Work like this until piece measures 45-53-62-70 (81-90) cm in total, measured from leg to shoulder, adjust according to front pieces. Cast off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew overarm/shoulder seams with grafting/kitchener stitches from right side.
Sew underarm seams together edge to edge in front loop of outermost stitches. Sew legs together inside 1 edge stitch, and sew the 5 stitches cast off between legs together. Sew vent up to where the 3 new stitches were cast on in each side for band stitches and sew the 3 band stitches in each side of piece to overall.

CROCHET EDGE:
Crochet on hook size 2.5 mm with light beige around the entire opening mid front on overall as follows:
ROW 1 (= from wrong side): Begin mid front at the bottom of left front piece, work 1 double crochet in first stitch where 3 band stitches were cast on, * 1 chain stitch, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 double crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* (make sure to avoid a tight edge), continue crochet edge around overall until corner where decrease for neck began on left front piece, work tie as follows: 1 double crochet in tip, then work chain stitches for approx. 20-25 cm, turn and work 1 slip stitch in every chain stitch, then work 1 double crochet in tip on front piece again, work in the round until next tip (i.e. on right front piece), work tie, continue as before around the rest of overall down to where 3 band stitches were cast on, adjust to finish with 1 double crochet.
ROW 2 (= from right side): Work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet around first chain stitch, * 4 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook, skip 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet, work 1 double crochet around next chain stitch *, repeat from *-* (make sure to work over ties so that the ties are under the edge, i.e. do not work in stitch in tie), finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet on previous row. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Crochet on hook size 2.5 mm with light beige mix at the bottom around both legs as follows:
ROUND 1: Begin at the seam. Work 1 double crochet in first stitch, * 1 chain stitch, skip 2 stitches, 1 double crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
ROUND 2: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet around first chain stitch, * 4 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook, skip 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet, work 1 double crochet around next chain stitch *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.

Crochet on hook size 2.5 mm with light beige mix at the edge around both sleeves as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 double crochet in first stitch at the bottom of sleeve, * 1 chain stitch, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 double crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* (make sure to avoid a tight edge) and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
ROUND 2: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet around first chain stitch, * 4 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook, skip 1 double crochet + 1 chain stitch + 1 double crochet, work 1 double crochet around next chain stitch *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
Then work 1 tie like the one in the tip on right and left front piece, on the outside of left front piece, under sleeve (i.e. in the side) and on the inside of right front piece – make sure that the ties are at the same hight as tips on front piece.

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

BEGIN PIECE FOR HAT HERE:

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

HAT:

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Loosely cast on (68) 80-92-96-104 (112-116) stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with light lavender.
Work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for (2) 2-3-3-3 (4-4) cm.
Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME decreasing 8 stitches evenly = (60) 72-84-88-96 (104-108) stitches.
Continue with MOSS STITCH - see explanation above. When piece measures (9) 10-11-11-13 (13-14) cm, work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. On next knit round decrease (6) 8-7-8-8 (8-9) stitches evenly. Repeat decrease every other round (i.e. every knit round) (5) 5-5-5-5 (6-6) more times (= (6) 6-6-6-6 (7-7) decrease rounds in total) = (24) 24-42-40-48 (48-45) stitches.
On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2. Purl 1 round and repeat decrease on next knit round in size 6/9 and 12/18 months and (2 - 3/4) years (do not decrease in the other sizes) = (12) 12-11-10-12 (12-12) stitches.
Pull a double yarn through the remaining stitches and fasten tightly.

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS Baby 33-30) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

We have also step-by-step guides for different techniques which you'll find here.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

Hej. Denne opskrift er strikket med Drops Baby Merino, som er 4 ply. Kan jeg i stedet strikke denne opskrift med "Drops Merino Extra Fine" garn som er 8 ply? Hvordan vil det påvirke arbejdet? Tak. Mvh. Malene.

Hej Malene, dragten vil blive for kompakt eller for stor. Hvis du hellere vil strikke i DROPS Merino Extra fine, så skal du vælge en opskrift med ca 20-21 masker på 10 cm. overalls

Förstår inte riktigt hur knytbanden ska fungera. Dels är de väldigt korta med 20-25 maskor och det på vänster framstycke hamnar under det högra. Det når inte fram för att kunna knytas, vänster framstycke viks framåt.

DROPS Design 16.10.2019 kl. 16:15:

Hej Inge, du virkar knytbanden 20-25 cm (du får gärna virka dom längre). Har du läst: Sedan virkas det 1 knytband motsvarande det i spetsen på höger och vänster framstycke, på utsidan av vänster framstycke, under ärmen (dvs i sidan) och på insidan av höger framstycke – se till att banden kommer i samma höjd som spetsarna på framstyckena. Lycka till :)

Hei Skal til å felle til halsen å forstår ikke forklaringen her. Skal jeg felle de to på hver side av merketråden og så dele arbeidet å gjøre det ferdig hver for seg deretter ? Å så legge opp til armene når lengden er det den er oppgitt?

DROPS Design 16.10.2019 kl. 16:19:

Hej, du feller til hals innenfor 1 kantmaske i hver side av arbejdet, det gør du på hver 2. pind til du når målet for at legger opp nye masker til ærmet. Da sætter du alle de andre masker på en tråd og strikker frem og tilbage over først det ene forstykke, så det andet og sidst ryggen. God fornøjelse!

Grand merci pour la rapidité avec laquelle vous m'avez répondu. Vous êtes vraiment des pros et charmantes en plus!!! Ce que je voulais dire c'est surtout que les explications en français ne sont pas claires, difficilement décryptables. Peut-être faudrait-il les éclaircir, simplifier, pour que les tricoteuses / crocheteuses amateurs n'aient pas à se crever les yeux sur les photos et ensuite œuvrer selon leur bon sens mais avec plein de doutes. Mille mercis de toute façon.

Je ne comprends pas les explications pour le rang 2 de la bordure. Pourriez-vous m'aider?

DROPS Design 23.09.2019 kl. 09:58:

Bonjour Mme Pol, cette vidéo montre comment réaliser ces grands picots, attention à bien crocheter le même nombre de mailles en l'air (4 dans le modèle; 3 dans la vidéo) et à sauter le nombre de mailles indiqué entre chaque picot. Bon crochet!

Aunque veo que se han corregido los materiales sigo sin entender: hay 4 tallas + los paréntesis y en materiales hay 3 cantidades + los paréntesis.

DROPS Design 15.09.2019 kl. 21:14:

Hola Olga. Ha sido un fallo al publicar el patrón. Ya están los materiales actualizados. Disculpe las molestias.

Alice De Roo 11.09.2019 - 12:38:

Hallo, Heb na de twee de pijpjes gebreid te hebben, alle steken op de rondbreinaald gezet. Hierna moet ik elke 6e naald 1 st meerderen aan elke kant. In de maat die ik brei, 16 keer. Als dit aanhoudt zijn deze meerderingen ongeveer 25 cm in lengte. Als ik de tekening bekijk is de overlap in verhouding korter dan de pijpjes die een hoogte hebben van 21 cm. Klopt dit wel??

DROPS Design 16.10.2019 kl. 09:27:

Dag Alice,

De tekening klopt niet helemaal in verhouding (en zo te zijn de verhoudingen in de tekening meer volgens de grotere maten). Je komt op ongeveer 20 cm uit als de meerderingen klaar zijn (bij een juiste stekenvehouding.)
