Liebes Drops-Team Ich bin beim rechten Vorderteil und komme nicht weiter. "Aufnehmen in der Mitte: Gleichzeitig nach 4 cm (Grösse L), gegen die Mitte 1. M erhöhen und alle 3 cm wiederholen total 5 Mal - siehe Tipp. Tipp: Es wird innerhalb des 5 M. Bündchen (=Bord) aufgenommen......" Meine Frage: Wie kann ich einem 5 M. Bord 5 M. aufnehmen ohne den Bordrand zu erhöhen? Sieht auf dem Foto nämlich nicht so aus. Vielen Dank, es ist heute auch sehr heiss. LG

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:14:

Liebe Claudi, es wird jeweils nur 1 Masche zugenommen in jede 3. cm und 5 Mal insgesamt, dh: 1 Reihe mit Zunahme stricken *weiter stricken ohne zunehmen, 3 cm später 1 Reihe mit Zunahme stricken*, von *bis* wiederholen bis Sie 5 Maschen zugenommen haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Yvonne 13.08.2016 - 17:59:

Hallo liebes Drops Team!Habe ich einen Rechnungs Fehler?Rechtes Vorderteil: Größe S 42 Maschen -1 Masche angleichen +5 Maschen Mitte (5*1) +12 Aufnahmen Seite (wie Rückenteil) -10 Maschen Halsausschnitt -14 Maschen Halsausschnitt -6 Maschen Armloch(1*3,3*1),wie Rückenteil =28 Maschen übrig!!!! Schulter wie Rückenteil 22 Maschen Wohin mit den restlichen (28-22) 6 Maschen?? Vielen Dank im Voraus für ihre Hilfe. Herzliche Grüße Yvonne

DROPS Design 15.08.2016 kl. 08:53:

Liebe Yvonne, Ihr Überlegungsfehler liegt bei den seitlichen Aufnahmen: beim Rückenteil wird auf beiden Seiten aufgenommen, beim Vorderteil nur auf einer Seite (die andere Seite ist ja die Mitte). Das sind genau die 6 Maschen, die Sie zu viel haben.

Sara 09.09.2014 - 19:15:

Står direkt efter "Vänster framstycke".

Helen 09.09.2014 - 19:09:

Hej! Undrar var beskrivningen till ärmarna är, hittar inte den!?! Är klar med fram och bakstycket så vill ju självklart göra ärmarna också!

DROPS Design 10.09.2014 kl. 12:07:

Hej Helen, Ärmen hittar du precis under vänster framst. Lycka till :)

Fleischer Sabine 14.10.2013 - 22:04:

Welche Lauflänge hat die angegebene Wolle?

DROPS Design 15.10.2013 kl. 13:05:

Catherine 16.07.2013 - 10:37:

Bonjour, Dans les explications pour le dos, il y a 2 fois la taille XL et 0 fois la taille XXL. Quelles sont les explications pour la taille XXL? Merci

DROPS Design 16.07.2013 kl. 11:24:

Bonjour Catherine, effectivement il fallait lire "Taille M et XXL" (corrigé dans le modèle en ligne). Merci, bon tricot !

DROPS Design 01.04.2009 - 09:53:

Hej Annika, även ärmarna skall stickas med med st nr 5 efter resåren! Tack för hjälpen!

Annika 01.04.2009 - 07:36:

Hej, håller på och stickar den här koftan! Undrar över stickstorlek för ärmarna. Fram- och bakstycke stickas med no 5, men ska ärmarna stickas med no 4 även efter resåren? Mvh Annika
