Karina Kamp schrijft over het uitzakken van het model en breien op pennr 12. Ik wil dit vest ook breien, heeft u tips?

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 20:35:

Hallo Thea, Het werk wordt inderdaad erg zwaar met katoen. Als alternatief zou je een wolgaren kunnen kiezen in dezelfde garencategorie (Categorie C), bijvoorbeeld Alaska of Nepal. Of in plaats van 1 draad uit categorie C, kun je ook 2 draden wol uit Categorie A nemen: bijvoorbeeld Alpaca, flora of fabel.

Mirta 27.01.2018 - 07:46:

Leider bekommt man die Farben zum Teil nicht mehr.Wie schade

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 08:57:

Liebe Mirta, gerne können Sie Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden nehmen, sie werden Ihnen gerne mit den Farben helfen, auch Telefonisch oder per Mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Karina Kamp 28.11.2017 - 12:39:

Ik heb het vest gebreid, weer uitgehaald en opnieuw gebreid. Het is loodzwaar en de afhechtdraden gaan los, omdat het breisel zo los is. De mouwen zijn te lang, ze zakken door het gewicht eindeloos uit. De panden hangen scheef. De langere delen hangen meer uit omdat ze zwaarder zijn. Ik overweeg om het vest opnieuw te breien en er iets heel anders van te maken. Het blijft prachtig materiaal, Paris, maar dit patroon is onmogelijk.

Karina Kamp 13.04.2017 - 14:43:

Ik breide dit vest volgens de aanwijzigingen. Helaas het zakt uit en hangt scheef. Hoe werk ik de draadeinden netjes af? Jammer van het materiaal, de kleuren zijn prachtig.

DROPS Design 16.04.2017 kl. 13:26:

Door de katoen wordt het een vrij zwaar vest inderdaad. Op deze video kun je zien hoe je de draadjes af kunt hechten.

Karina Kamp 24.01.2017 - 11:35:

Ik overweeg het prachtige vest van 3 draden Paris te breien. Ik brei erg los. Ik het verstandig om met pennen 12 ipv pennen 15 te breien? Ik heb geen van beiden, dus kan het niet uitproberen.

DROPS Design 24.01.2017 kl. 15:57:

Hoi Karina. Het belangrijkste hier is dat de stekenverhouding klopt. Je moet altijd eerst een proeflapje breien om zeker te zijn van de stekenverhouding.

Heike Thamm 07.08.2016 - 15:24:

Ich finde eure Handarbeiten einfach fantastisch so das man sofort Lust hat sich selbst zu versuchen

Albin 05.07.2016 - 12:17:

Under rubriken Top står ju materialåtgången, dvs. längre ner på sidan.

Ninette 05.07.2016 - 09:10:

Er de garnnøgler der skal bruges til at strikke toppen, medregnet i de garn nøgler der står under selve trøjen? Eller skal der indregnes ekstra garnnøgler til toppe? Jeg skal strikke trøjen og top i str L og har regner mig frem til at jeg skal bruge 29/30 nøgler garn. Men jeg er i tvivl om det er nok til også at kunne strikke toppen?? Vil være glad for HURTIG svar!

DROPS Design 05.07.2016 kl. 14:14:

Hej Ninette. Nej, det er kun for jakken. Men antal til toppen staar nede i mönstret: Materialer: DROPS Paris fra Garnstudio 150-150-150-200-200 gr f.nr 45, appelsin 50 - 50 - 50 - 50 - 50 gr f.nr 38, koral
