EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP (for V-neck):
Make 1 yarn over between 2 stitches. On the next row, work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

DECREASE TIP (for sides of body): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the stitch with the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the stitch with the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes from the right side and on the right band. The bottom buttonhole is worked approx. 2 cm from the bottom edge, the top buttonhole approx.1 cm from the beginning of the v-neck (approx. 32-33-34-35-36-37 cm measured from the bottom of the vest). Work a total of 6 buttonholes with approx. 6-6-6½-6½-7-7 cm between each one.
Position them in the purled sections (seen from the right side).
1 buttonhole = purl 2 together, 1 yarn over. On the next row (wrong side) knit the yarn to leave a hole.

CASTING-OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with a larger size needle. If the edge is still tight, make 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch at the same time as casting off; the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

VEST – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The vest is worked top down. Each shoulder is worked separately, back and forth, and stitches are increased/cast on for the V-neck and armholes. Then all pieces are joined together and the body finished working back and forth. Stiches are picked up for the neck, sleeve edges and bands, which are worked in rib to finish.

FRONT PIECES:

Right front piece:
Cast on 20-21-21-22-22-23 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) using circular needle size 4 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed. Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, work stocking stitch until there is 1 stitch left on the row and then 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth.
When the piece measures 4-5-5-6-6-7 cm, start to increase for the V-neck and when the piece measures 18-18-18-17-17-16 cm, increase for the armholes, read description below:
V-neck:
Increase 1 stitch inside the last 2 stitches on the next row from the right side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this alternately every 2nd and 4th row a total of 19-19-20-20-21-21 times (increases for the V-neck are not finished when the armhole is finished, but are continued on the body). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Armhole:
Increase 1 stitch inside the first 2 stitches on every row from the right side 2-1-1-3-4-4 times, then cast on new stitches at the end of every row from the wrong side as follows: Cast on 2 stitches 0-2-2-3-3-4 times and 3 stitches 0-0-1-1-2-3 times (= a total of 2-5-8-12-16-21 stitches increased). Lay the piece to one side and work the left front piece.

Left front piece:
Cast on 20-21-21-22-22-23 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) using circular needle size 4 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed. Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, stocking stitch until there is 1 stitch left on the row and then 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth.
When the piece measures 4-5-5-6-6-7 cm, start to increase for the V-neck and when the piece measures 18-18-18-17-17-16 cm, increase for the armholes, read description below:
V-neck:
Increase 1 stitch inside the first 2 stitches on the next row from the right side – remember INCREASE TIP. Increase like this alternately every 2nd and 4th row a total of 19-19-20-20-21-21 times.
Armhole:
Increase 1 stitch inside the last 2 stitches on each row from the right side 2-1-1-3-4-4 times, then cast on new stitches at the end of every row from the right side as follows: Cast on 2 stitches 0-2-2-3-3-4 times and 3 stitches 0-0-1-1-2-3 times (= a total of 2-5-8-12-16-21 stitches increased). Lay the piece to one side and work the back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Each shoulder is worked separately before being joined together.

Right shoulder:
Cast on 20-21-21-22-22-23 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) using circular needle size 4 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed. Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, stocking stitch until there is 1 stitch left on the row and then 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth.
When the piece measures 4 cm increase 1 stitch inside the first 2 stitches on the next row from the right side = 21-22-22-23-23-24 stitches. Work 1 row back from the wrong side. Lay the piece to one side and work the left shoulder.

Left shoulder:
Cast on 20-21-21-22-22-23 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) using circular needle size 4 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed. Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, stocking stitch until there is 1 stitch left on the row and then 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth.
When the piece measures 4 cm increase 1 stitch inside the last 2 stitches on the next row from the right side = 21-22-22-23-23-24 stitches. Work 1 row back from the wrong side.

Now work the 2 shoulders together as follows: Work the 21-22-22-23-23-24 stitches from the left shoulder as before, cast on 36-36-38-38-40-40 stitches (= neck) work the 21-22-22-23-23-24 stitches from the right shoulder as before = 78-80-82-84-86-88 stitches. Work stocking stitch back and forth with 1 stitch in garter stitch on each side.
When the piece measures 18-18-18-17-17-16 cm, increase/cast on stitches on each side of the piece for the armholes, in the same way as on the front pieces (= a total of 2-5-8-12-16-21 stitches increased for each armhole) = 82-90-98-108-118-130 stitches.
When all the increases are finished, work the body. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
Now join all the pieces together from the right side as follows:
Starting with the left front piece, work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch and stocking stitch as before, then cast on 11-11-13-13-15-15 new stitches (= in side under sleeve), stocking stitch over the 82-90-98-108-118-130 stitches on the back piece, cast on 11-11-13-13-15-15 new stitches (= in side under sleeve), stocking stitch over the right front piece until there is 1 stitch left and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. The number of stitches on the needle is dependent on how many increases still remain for the V-neck.
Insert 1 marker in the middle stitch of the 11-11-13-13-15-15 new stitches in each side. Allow the markers to follow your work onwards; stitches will later be decreased on each side of both markers.
When all the increases for the V-neck are finished there are = 186-202-222-242-266-290 stitches on the needle.
When the piece measures 5 cm, decrease on both sides of each marker – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 9-9-10-10-10-11 cm a total of 4 times = 170-186-206-226-250-274 stitches. When the piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm increase 26-26-30-34-38-42 stitches evenly spaced = 196-212-236-260-288-316 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib, starting from the right side (= knit 2 / purl 2) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side until the rib measures 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – read CASTING-OFF TIP. The vest measures approx.57-59-61-63-65-67 cm from the shoulder down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams with grafting stitches.

ARMHOLE EDGE:
Knit up 88-132 stitches inside the 1 edge stitch around the armhole with short circular needle size 3 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed; adjust so the number of stitches is divisible by 4. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 2 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – remember CASTING-OFF TIP! Work the other sleeve edge in the same way.

RIGHT BAND AND NECK:
Starting from the right side at the bottom of the right front piece, knit up 144-172 stitches with short circular needle size 3 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed, inside the 1 edge stitch, and as far as mid-back of the neck. Adjust so the number of stitches is divisible by 4.
Purl 1 row from the wrong side and increase using yarn overs just where the V-neck finishes (i.e. the point, approx. 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm from the cast-off edge upwards), * purl 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* a total of 4 times (= 4 stitches increased).
On the next row from the right side work as follows: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, then rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) to end of row (yarn overs worked twisted to avoid holes). Make sure the band is neither too tight nor too loose for the length of the front piece; knit up more/less stitches if necessary. When the band measures 1 cm work the BUTTONHOLES – read description above.
When the band/neck measures 2½ cm, Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – remember CASTING-OFF TIP.

LEFT BAND AND NECK:
Starting mid-back of neck with circular needle size 3 mm and Karisma or Soft Tweed and working from the right side, knit up the same number of stitches as on the right band and neck inside the 1 edge stitch down the left front piece.
Purl 1 row from the wrong side and increase with yarn overs just where the V-neck finishes (i.e. the point, approx. 33-34-35-36-37-38 cm from the cast-off edge upwards), * purl 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* a total of 4 times (= 4 stitches increased).
On the next row from the right side work as follows: Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) until there are 2 stitches left and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch (yarn overs worked twisted to avoid holes). When the band/neck measures 2½ cm, Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – remember CASTING-OFF TIP.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew buttons onto the left band.

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 219-3) 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.

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.

Click here to see our yarn converter

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.

Bonjour J'ai du mal à comprendre les explications pour les bordures devant et demi-col: "augmenter avec des jetés au niveau de la fin de l'encolure V (36 cm (taille XL) à partir des mailles rabattues)". En partant du haut (mailles rabattues) je ne suis pas à 36 cm mais environ 22 cm. Pourriez vous m'aider ? Merci

DROPS Design answered:

Bonjour Mme Roland, le gilet se tricote de haut en bas, donc les mailles rabattues sont en bas, on va donc mesurer ces 36 cm à partir du bas du gilet jusqu'au début de l'encolure V (dans ce sens, mais en fait, il s'agissait de la fin des augmentations quand on a tricoté les devants). Il s'agit ici d'augmenter pour bien former l'angle de l'encolure V. Bon tricot!

Mon problème: Après 10 augmentation (30 rangs) seulement la pièce mesure 17cm et je dois passer à l‘emmanchure. Quel est le problème? Aidez-moi rapidement svp. Merci.

DROPS Design answered:

Bonjour Mme Bourque. Tout est correct. Les augmentations de l'encolure V ne sont pas terminées quand les emmanchures sont finies, elles continuent après les emmanchures, quand on tricote le dos/les devants. Bon tricot!

Hallöchen, Ich stricke die Veste in XXXL Bei de Zumahmen, in dem Text steht, dass im jeder 2. Und 4 Reihe zugenommen wird. Aber man braucht doch mehr als 4 Reihen für die Breite? Und ist bei jeder 2. Reihe der Ausschnitt dann nicht zu flach? Danke schon Mal für die Antwort :)

DROPS Design answered:

Liebe Frau Lennart, es wird für den Halsausschnitt nach 7 cm (vor den 2 letzten Maschen am Ende einer Hinreihe) nur 1 Maschen jeweils zugenommen, und diese Zunahme wird so wiederholt (= 1 Hin-Reihe mit Zunahme, 1 Rück-Reihe ohne Zunahme, 1 Hin-Reihe mit Zunahmen, 3 Reihen ohne Zunahmen( = 1 Rück-R + 1 Hin-R + 1 Rück-R) ) und so von (bis) wiederholen bis 21 Mal zugenommen wurden. Und gleichzeitig, nach 16 cm nehmen Sie am Anfang den Hinreihen 1 Masche 4 Mal und dann schlagen Sie am Ende den Rückreihen: 4 M x 2 Mal und 3 M x 3 Mal. Kann das helfen?

When it says "Increase like this alternately every 2nd and 4th row" does this mean on every other row, or on the 2nd row, then fourth row, then 2nd row? Option 1: increase (right side) no increase (wrong side) increase (right side) no increase (wrong side) Option 2: increase (right side) no increase (wrong side) increase (right side) no increase (wrong side) no increase (right side) no increase (wrong side) increase (right side)

Jeg skal strikke Boston Vesten. der står omk. retstrikning: "RETSTRIK (strikkes frem og tilbage): Strik ret på alle pinde." Skal jeg ikke strikke ret på retsiden og vrang på vrangsiden?

DROPS Design answered:

Hei Kaja. Jo, vesten strikkes i glattstrikk (rett fra rettsiden og vrang fra vrangsiden), men kantmaskene strikkes i retstrikk (RETSTRIK = når det strikkes frem og tilbage = Strik ret på alle pinde). Står det i oppskriften at 1 kantmaske skal strikkes i retstrik, skal denne masken strikkes rett fra retten og rett fra vrangen. mvh DROPS design

Buongiorno, è la prima volta che mi cimento in un lavoro di questo genere, cioè senza cuciture laterali. E allora mi chiedo: fatto il davanti destro e messo da parte. Fatto il davanti sinistro e messo da parte ...ed ecco la domanda ma il filo si deve tagliare o lasciare col suo gomitolo? Chiedo perdono per la mia ignoranza e spero in una risposta celere. Ciao

DROPS Design answered:

Buonasera Maria Giovanna, può tagliare il filo e poi ripartire. Buon lavoro!

Hoe moet ik het achterpand breien? Ik heb een linker en een rechter schouder gemaakt, zoals aangegeven. Welke 23 steken moet ik oppakken, de steken aan de rand die ik gemeerderd heb? Of moet ik de de opzet steken van linker pakken, extra steken opzetten voor hals en dan de opzet steken van rechts? Moet ik dan als het ware tussen de twee gemaakte schouders in breiden en deze verbinden met de kantsteek?

DROPS Design answered:

Dag Chantal,

Je breit eerst de steken van de linker schouder, aan het eind van die steken zet je 38 steken op en daarna brei je de 23 steken van de rechter schouder. Dus je hebt dan alle steken van beide schouders op de naald met daartussenin 38 steken opgezet.
