Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas les explications concernant les pinces. Les mailles en côtes sont elles situées aux côtés du top ? la jonction des mailles est elle le milieu du dos ? Merci pour votre réponse Cordialement VB

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 08:26:

Bonjour Mme Blottiere, les tours commencent sur le côté = on commence par 10 m en côtes et on termine par 11 m de côtes et au milieu du tour, on aura 21 m en côtes (= 2ème côté). Bon tricot!

Hallo, ich verstehe das Muster nicht. Soll denn vier Mal je weils abgenommen werden (M.1) und danach später vier Mal (Muster2)durch Umschläge zugenommen werden???? Oder habe ich das falsch verstanden? Freundliche Grüße an alle Strickerinnen Nora

Sie haben das richtig verstanden. Sie müssen ja die Formgebung wie in der Schnittzeichnung erreichen, das erfolgt bei diesem Modell durch M.1 und M.2. Durch die Abnahmen in M.1 ergibt sich die Taillierung, dann mit den Zunahmen in M.2 erreichen Sie die Brustweite.

Hoi. Je moet 4 markeerringen plaatsen zoals beschreven. Brei M.1. Door de omslagen minder je 2 st per markeerdraad = 8 st per herhaling van M.1. Herhaal M.1 vier keer = 32 st minder. 260-32 st = 228 st. Ik hoop dat je nu verder kan. Succes ;o). Gr. Tine

Hallo, ik ben een leek in het breien en probeer patroon drops 74-11. Volgens de teltekening (denk ik) moet men boven elke merkdraad bij voor en achterpand 4 steken minderen, en dit 4 x herhalen, maar dan kom ik niet aan 228 steken of zie ik dit verkeerd. Of moet ik alleen minderen aan het voorpand?

Hoi Mita. De Nederlandse verklaring voor de teltekening staat onderaan het patroon in dezelfde verticale volgorde als op de teltekening. Kijk onder "VERTALING SYMBOLEN". Wij hebben dit ook vermeld in het patroon zelf. Veel plezier verder. Gr. Tine

Ook hier ontbreken de verklaringssymbolen voor het = teken.Graag hulp. grts,Mita
