Comments to Knitted tunic

  • Good evening ! I love v much this tunic, but I don't have a yarn to suit at the knitting needles 10 , but a little thinner and I try to adjust the model to my yarn. I made a sample on the knitting needles 7 and 8 resulted in 10 cm meshes. Then I got lost in calculations. Normally I am the extent and, according to the scheme, should I get my result at lap 79 CM, What is huge! I measured the longest and wide tunic (that gets me above the knee, almost a dress) and measures 63 CM. The question that I'm asking you is related to size, If they are correct in sketch. After my calculations you should install 99 eyes. And even if I “Mute” measure M, all seem immense foot when a masseur with a tailor's measuring tape. Thank you !

  • And regarding the collar, in the picture you can see a crossing from elastic double to simple elastic about not write anything in the explanations. I guess it makes a sudden drop, in the sense that the stitches are reduced by half?

  • Hi Diana!
    About the collar, it's an omission from the text. Chatting with site administrator and return with a review of text.
    Chest measures are correct, It depends a lot of yarn. You can adjust the data in the article after your size, It's not so complicated.
    Good luck!

  • Thanks! I still have one question: at a leaf is inumulteste 4 times and it lowers all four sides, but the top longer drops again, from the diagram it is clear that 3 eye remains one (so come 2 out of 8 skinfold already let down in side), from the legend that only decreases apparent one of 3. How is that fair? I think of 3 remains one, like to go atop beautiful leaf. Therefore 5 X 2 leaves from each eye skinfold pinch => 10 eye less total knit.

  • Hi Diana!
    Mark reperezinta 2 mesh together and not dos 3 meshes together dos.
    So after producing leaves you'll have less 5 mesh.
