Sorry, das erklärt leider nicht meine Frage, es geht um die Abnahmen an Vorder-und Rückenteil.

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 14:15:

Liebe Sabine, sorry; Meinen Sie di 16 Abnahmen am Ende vom Rückenteil? Um die richtige Breite zu behalten muss man hier 16 M Abnahmen regelmäßig bei der letzten Rückreihe stricken, dh Sie stricken 92 M und nehmen Sie 16 M über die Zöpfe ab, 76 M sind jetzt übrig, bei der letzten Reihen ketten Sie alle Maschen ab. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sabine 25.01.2019 - 09:07:

Ein wunderschönes Modell stricke ich da gerade. Mir ist allerdings unklar wo ich am Rückenteil für gr 9-10 Jahre die 16 Maschen abnehmen soll. Mittig für den Halsausschnitt oder beidseitig an den Schultern?

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Sabine, Es sind 206 M in dieser Größe dh 103 M für je Vorder- und Rückenteil, die 17 Zunahmen sollen über die mittleren 92 M gestrickt sein (= *5 M ohne Zunahme, die nächsten 92 M stricken und gleichzeitig 17 M zunehmen, 6 Maschen ohne Zunahme*, von *bis* wiederholen. hier wird es erklärt, wie man gleichmäßig verteilt zunimmt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jana 21.01.2019 - 17:14:

DROPS Design 22.01.2019 kl. 02:13:

Janice 02.12.2018 - 00:34:

Please explain: knit 1 row stockinette stitch, increasing 16-18-15 (17-23-23) sts evenly distributed over the center 80-84-92 (92-104-108) sts of the front and the center 80-84-92 (92-104-108) of the back = 196-212-224 (240-264-272) sts.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 07:46:

Hi Janice, Stockinette is knit from the right side. You are increasing just within the middle stitches on the front piece and within the middle stitches on the back piece - so you don't increase over the remaining stitches. Happy knitting!

Claire Lafrance 26.11.2018 - 14:24:

Y a-t-il une vidéo qui montre comment tricoter la 2e maille avant la première pour ensuite laisser tomber les 2 mailles qui sont sur l'aiguille gauche? (voir légende des schémas)

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 14:47:

Bonjour Mme Lafrance, tout à fait, vous la retrouvez ici. Bon tricot!

Claire Lafrance 23.11.2018 - 02:47:

Quand j'ai fini les côtes pour la manche, grandeur 9ans, et que j'ai fait les 14 augmentations j'ai 56 mailles vous dites 14m. modèle 2, modèle 4 qui a 22 mailles et modèle 2 de nouveau pour 14 mailles ça me donne 50mailles et j'en ai 56. Je ne comprends pas

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 10:35:

Bonjour Mme Lafrance, tricotez les 56 m ainsi: 14 m en suivant M.2, puis M.4 (= voir encadré soit 28 m) et 14 m en suivant M.2 = 14+28+14= 56 m. Bon tricot!

Janice 06.11.2018 - 22:15:

I just love your patterns and would like to use them but I don\'t understand how to read the patterns, what does it mean when it says 10 sts of patterns of 2, 3, and 5 how many time am i suppose to go across for each could you please explain how your pattern works?\r\nThanks

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 08:50:

Dear Janice, in size 7/8 years you work: 10 sts of Pattern 2 = work diagram M.2 (= 6 sts) one time in width then work the first 4 sts in M.2 = 10 sts. See Pattern 3 in chart below where M.3 is framed = 22 sts. And Pattern 5 = as shown in M.5 = 6 sts. Happy knitting!

Giuliana 27.10.2018 - 19:25:

Grazie mille

Giuliana Mariotti 27.10.2018 - 16:07:

Si può lavorare con i ferri normali e non circolari facendo il davanti il dietro e le maniche separatamente?

DROPS Design 27.10.2018 kl. 18:27:

Buonasera Giuliana. Sì può lavorare con i ferri normali e in parti separate. Per il davanti e il dietro è sufficiente che avvii la metà delle maglie indicate e aggiunga 1 maglia vivagno da ciascun lato per la cucitura. Buon lavoro!

MARINA 17.12.2017 - 12:05:

HOLA, QUIERO HACER EL SUETER LITTLE SAILOR CON LANA KARISMA TAL Y COMO INDICA, PERO DICE AGUJAS 2.5-3.5 CUANDO KARISMA ES DE AGUJA 4MM. ES UN ERROR?? . GRACIAS.

DROPS Design 17.12.2017 kl. 17:50:

Hola Marina, no, no se trata de un error. La lana Karisma no se trabaja exclusivamente con agujas de 4mm (aunque sean las más recomendadas); el número puede variar dependiendo de las necesidades del patrón.
