At the same time, when the work measures 26-28-31 (32-33) cm [10.25" - 11" - 12.25" (12-5/8" - 13")], knit the next row as follows: 46-50-54 (57-60) sts front, increase 5 sts, 92-98-108 (112-120) sts back, increase 5 sts, 46-50-54 (57-60) sts front (the increased sts on each side are for the armhole steeks and are not knit into the pattern). At the same time, when the work measures 26-28-31 (32-33) cm [10.25" - 11" - 12.25" (12-5/8" - 13") (adjust to obtain a whole or half star), switch the pattern colors, so that gray = natural and natural = gray. When the work measures 40-43-48 (50-52) cm [15.75" - 16-7/8" - 18-7/8" (19.75" - 20.5")], bind off the center 28-30-30 (32-32) sts (+ 5 steek sts) in the front for the neck and knit the rest back and forth on needle.

Hej! Jag har stickat hela bålen men förstår inte ökningarna på ärmen, de som är efter ökningarna efter resåren.. HJÄLP

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 14:00:

Hei Helene. Når vrangborden/resåren er ferdig strikket skal du øke 2 masker 21 ganger vekselsvis (annen hver gang). Første øking er på 2. omgang, deretter strikkes det 2 omganger og økes på 3. omgang etter 1. økning). Så strikkes det 1 omgang og så økes det (= 2.omgangs økning), så strikkes det 2 omganger og på neste omgang økes det (= 3.gangs økning). Slik økes det vekselsvis. God Fornøyelse!

Ich mag die alten Designs sehr! Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn Drops endlich ein reines dünnes (am besten nicht superwash behandelts) Schurwollgarn ins Programm nehmen würde. Gibt es Pläne dazu? Wie kommt es das Estnische Garne mit langen Farbverläufen und diesen wunderbar satten Farben so erfolgreich sind, und Drops erkennt diese Vorliebe der Stricker-Community nicht?

DROPS Design 08.03.2016 kl. 08:38:

Liebe Klara, unser Einkaufsteam ist immer am Evaluieren, welche Garne unser Sortiment am besten ergänzen würden und Sie dürfen im Laufe des Jahres wieder neue Qualitäten erwarten.

Moet armsgat t/m schouderpatroon ingeknipt worden, of er onder blijven. Dan is armsgat nl 22 cm ipv 19 cm bij maat 86. op de foto kan ik het niet goed zien. Patroon tekening lijkt dat het helemaal ingeknipt moet worden en dan de schoudernaden weer dicht naaien.

DROPS Design 21.11.2013 kl. 14:26:

Hoi Monica. Je knipt alleen de armsgaten open - vanaf waar je de 5 st hebt opgezet tot aan de afkantnld. De schoudernaden zijn niet dicht, deze naai je gewoon samen bij het afwerken.
