Peggy T 03.08.2019 - 03:57:

I am confused about what to do when I reach the part on the body after the first bind off where it says knit the rest of the front and back separately. Do I work with 2 different balls of yarn?

DROPS Design 03.08.2019 kl. 18:19:

Hello Peggy. After you bind off for the armholes, you work back and front as two separate pieces. You can first work the front piece and once the front is finished, work on the back piece. If you prefer, you can work the two piece at the same time, but you will have to work with separate balls of yarn. Happy knitting!

Gaëlle 29.07.2019 - 13:29:

Bonjour, J'ai commencé la manche du tricot en taille M/L, mais, après les côtes et les 28 augmentations, arrivé au diagramme, je me retrouve avec 84 mailles à tricoter et des diagrammes à suivre pour 56 mailles. Pouvez-vous me fournir un rectificatif ? Cordialement.

DROPS Design 29.07.2019 kl. 17:20:

Bonjour Gaelle! Changez pour les aiguilles double pointes 3,5 mm et établissez le patron comme suit: 2 mailles du diagramme M3, diagramme M2, diagramme M1, diagramme M5, diagramme M2, 2 mailles du diagramme M3 = 84 mailles au total (2+28+12+12+28+2). Bon tricot!

Fabienne 09.04.2019 - 07:52:

Bonjour,tout d'abord trop beau votre pull,je le fais pour ma petite fille de 2 ans , mais quand j arrive au repartition des diagrammes ,je n'ai que 76 mailles au lieu des 104( 12m diagramme M3.,diagramme M2 complet donc 28m., diagramme M1 donc 12m,diagramme M5 donc 12m. et 12m. diagramme M3 .total 76 mailles ...) avez vous oublier un diagramme ? ou ai-je oublié une indication ? merci . cordialement

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 09:32:

Bonjour Fabienne, il manque en fait un M.2, on doit tricoter ainsi: 12 m de M.3, M.2, M.1, M.5, M.2, 12 m de M.3 - la correction va être faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Gabi 09.09.2018 - 22:11:

Hallo, ich kann die Diagramme für die Muster nicht finden, vielleicht liegts am Browser? Am PC kommt nur = r oder =l, am Handy immerhin noch ein Platzhalter für ein Bild, das Diagramm selber taucht leider nirgends auf. Können Sie helfen? Gruss, Gabi

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:40:

Liebe Gabi, wegen Wartungsarbeiten waren die Bilder vor einigen Stunden nicht verfügbar, aber alles ist jetzt wieder in Ordnung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Øistein Høyde Braanen 03.02.2018 - 17:47:

Hei :) Når man starter på mønstra nederst på bolen, står det for S/M at man skal strikke 32 m av de forskjellige mønstra. Dette går jo ikke opp i de tilsammen 336. Åssen skal maskene til overs strikkes? Hovedmønstret har 48 masker, skal jeg da bare strikke de 32 midterste? På bilda ser det jo ut som mønstra har forskjellig bredde..

DROPS Design 13.02.2018 kl. 14:14:

Hei Øistein. Nei, du skal strikke 32 masker av kun M.3, deretter de andre mønstrene. Du strikker slik: 32 masker av diagram M.3 + M.2 (= 28 masker) + M.4 (= 48 masker) + M.2 (= 28 masker) og så 32 masker av M.3 igjen (32+28+48+28+32 = 168 masker = Forstykket). Nå gjentas det som står mellom stjernene i oppskriften (*-*) på bakstykket. 168 masker forstykket + 168 masker bakstykket = 336 masker på omgangen. God Fornøyelse!

Hilda Van Der Spoel 18.09.2017 - 19:49:

Goedenavond, Ben nu toegekomen aan het minderen voor de armsgaten. Daarna moet ik de panden afzonderlijk verder breien. Dan vraag ik me af hoe ik dat moet doen omdat ik het onderstuk op de rondbreinaald steeds aan de goede kant heb gebreid. Moeten de afzonderlijke stukken ook op de rondbreinaald gebreid worden en zo ja hoe dan?

DROPS Design 24.09.2017 kl. 10:50:

Hallo Hilda, Bij heen en weer breien, brei je in dit patroon de teruggaande naalden (dit zijn de oneven naalden in het telpatroon) zoals de steken zich voordoen, dus als je op de heengaande naald de steek recht hebt gebreid, brei je hem nu averecht, en vice versa. Op deze oneven naalden hoef je geen steken op een kabelnaald te zetten.

Gerry Zonneveld 11.01.2017 - 13:10:

Goedemiddag, ik heb een vraag over model 59-6. Het betreft de 8 overgebleven steken van de mouw. Deze worden op een hulpdraad gezet en moeten bij de afwerking aan elkaar gemaasd worden. Ik zie wel maas instructievideo's, maar dat is niet met losse steken. Kunt u mij vertellen hoe ik de steken van beide panden aan elkaar kan mazen?

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 15:01:

Hoi Gerry. Hetzelfde principe. U maast de losse steken aan elkaar, dus de draad door de losse st halen

Tricoteuse Bretonne 20.04.2016 - 08:19:

Bonjour, J'arrive en haut de la première manche et j'ai un peu de mal à comprendre les explications, à partir de : Sur le rang avant que le travail ne mesure 16.5-17 (17-18-18-20) cm [6.5" - 6.75" (6.75" - 7" - 7" - 7-7/8")]........., Pouvez-vous m'éclairer ? Merci d'avance !

Je viens de voir que vous aviez déjà donné des éclaircissements à ce sujet ! Désolée d'avoir reposé la question ! Votre explication est très claire. Merci !
