Hola. Un patrón precioso, pero la copia en español está incompleta. He tenido que consultar la de inglés para entenderlo. Saludos.

Hola Victoria. El patrón está completo, ha sido un fallo al publicarlo en la web. Gracias por el aviso.

Joungblout 17.11.2018 - 12:17:

Bonjour, dans les indications pour les manches, les hauteurs totales (glisser en attente et autres) sont plus longues en S/M qu'en M/L. Est-ce normal ? Merci, Nathalie

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 08:13:

Bonjour Nathalie, tout à fait, en taille M, les épaules sont plus longues, les manches vont donc être un peu plus courtes avant l'arrondi. N'hésitez toutefois pas à ajuster si besoin en comparant les mesures du schéma à celles d'un vêtement analogue dont vous aimez la forme pour personnaliser votre pull. Bon tricot!

When starting the front (and back) after 1 inch of seed stitch it says to knit 25 sts of M2 and M1(for the smaller size) but M2 (and M1) is a 10 stitch repeating pattern. Do I start in the middle or end in the middle of the pattern repeat?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:30:

Dear Lynn, to work 25 sts in M.1/M.2 repeat the diagram twice in width = 20 sts and work the first 5 sts. Happy knitting!

Tina Christiansen 23.12.2017 - 16:55:

Skal lige høre, når man strikker diagrammer i starten, frem og tilbage, så skal man vel strikke maskerne modsat på vrangpinden. D.v.s. vrang = ret og ret = vrang?

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 11:10:

Hej Tina, Ja det stemmer, på denne måde vil du få selve strukturmønsteret i vrangmasker fra retsiden. God fornøjelse!

Nia 16.07.2017 - 18:35:

Jeg jan ikke få maskeantallet og mønster til aat gå op, når jeg skifter til rundpind? Hvert mønster er 30m og så skal der være 3 perlestrik imellem. Det giver 204 masker, men så er der 6 pinde perlestrik i hver side? Jeg er forvirret.

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 08:52:

Hei Nia. Du starter med 5 masker perlestrikk, 30 masker av M.2, 3 masker perlestrikk, 30 masker av M.3, 3 masker perlestrikk, 30 masker av M.1 og 5 masker perlestrikk = 5+30+3+30+3+30+5= 106 masker, som stemmer med oppskriften. God Fornøyelse!

Mary Anne 06.12.2016 - 14:35:

Why are the stitches at the underarm and side shaping placed on holders? There are no special directions for these stitches under assembling. Couldn't these stitches simply be bound off?

DROPS Design 06.12.2016 kl. 15:30:

Dear Mary Anne, when shaping sleeve cap, you first slip sts on a st holder on each side, then work 3 rounds moss st on all sts (= all sts from st holders too) + 1 row in stocking st before binding off. Happy knitting!

J Turner 05.03.2013 - 14:59:

Can you explain the graphs r they read right to left row 1 and left to right row 2? What happens when u change to circular all right to left? confused pleas help.

DROPS Design 05.03.2013 kl. 16:03:

Dear Mrs Turner, diagrams are read from the bottom corner at the right side towards the left each round when working in the round. When you will work back and forth, RS rows will be read as below, WS rows will be worked from the left towards the right. Happy knitting!

Johan 26.07.2012 - 20:46:

Alle Reihen sind beschrieben!

Plat 24.07.2012 - 21:01:

In den Vierecken M1, M2, M3 und M4 sind es nur Hinreihen , wie strickt man Rückreihen?

DROPS Design 02.08.2012 kl. 17:55:

Im Diagramm sind Hin- und Rückreihen dargestellt.
