Bonjour est-il possible d'avoir une vidéo de la technique pour poser une fermeture éclaire ? je n'en ai pas trouvé dans vos vidéo.. merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 07:36:

Bonjour Annick, relevez les mailles le long de chaque devant, après les 3 m jersey des bordures de devant et tricotez 4 rangs jersey et rabattez ensuite les mailles: on obtient ainsi 2 épaisseurs de jersey qui vont servir de housse à la glissière). Glissez la fermeture à glissière entre ces 4 rangs jersey et les 3 m jersey des bordures devant et faites la couture. Bon assemblage!

Hello Ik maak grootste vest , bezig met voorpand. Heb al geminderd b0ven de kabel. Dan moet ik van 62 cm op 75 cm komen. Waar komen die 13 cm vandaan? Ik moet alleen de hals afkanten en dat zijn 8 nld. Vriendelijke groet Ines

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:55:

Hoi Ines. Je breit door op elke schouder met het patroon zoals eerst tot het werk meet 75 cm

Myriam Le Corre 11.10.2016 - 19:20:

Bonsoir qu'entendez vous par:tricotez 6 cm de côtes avec 3 mailles au point mousse de chaque côtés en jersey? je ne comprend pas merci d' avance

DROPS Design 12.10.2016 kl. 09:28:

Bonjour Mme Le Corre, c'était une erreur, on doit tricoter avec 3 m jersey end de chaque côté. La correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

MJ 10.05.2016 - 21:33:

Bij de mouwen moet ik in iedere 4e en 5e nld meerderen. Betekent dit dat ik in de 4e en de daaropvolgende nld moet meerderen of dat ik na de 4e nld opnieuw begin te tellen tot ik in de 5e nld kom?

DROPS Design 11.05.2016 kl. 17:08:

Hoi MJ. Je meerdert eerst in de 4e nld, daarna brei je nog 4 nld en meerdert in de volgende (vijfde) naald, daarna 3 nld breien en meerderen in de volgende (vierde) nld, enzovoort.

Thea 31.08.2015 - 20:07:

Is dit soms een dubbele gerstekorrel. Kan het op de foto niet goed zien.

DROPS Design 01.09.2015 kl. 16:37:

Hoi Thea. Het telpatroon voor deze steken staat onderaan het patroon.

Thea 31.08.2015 - 17:06:

De patroonsteek naast de kabel, wat is dat voor steek? Dat is toch niet 2 recht 2 averecht.

DROPS Design 01.09.2015 kl. 16:41:

Hoi Thea. Als je op het telpatroon onderaan kijkt voor de kabel (M.1), dan zie je dat je 2 st av aan beide zijkanten van de kabel breit.

Hvordan kan man bukke en delbar lynlås om hvis den er forlang,som der står i opskriften til barnetrøjen

Tricotte 17.09.2013 - 19:50:

Bonjour. Je voudrais savoir si la texture et l'épaisseur de la veste serait la même si je la tricotais en Big Merino plutôt qu'en Alaska. Est-ce que la veste serait aussi volumineuse? Merci de tout coeur pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 18.09.2013 kl. 09:59:

Bonjour Tricotte, la texture serait différente car la composition de ces 2 qualités l'est, mais elles font partie du même groupe et se tricotent donc sur la base d'un échantillon identique. Je vous invite à contacter votre magasin DROPS qui pourra vous aider à choisir. Bon tricot!

Tricotte 15.09.2013 - 20:21:

Les aiguilles circulaires n°3,5 et n°5 doivent avoir quelle longueur? J'aimerais bien réaliser cette veste pour homme de taille M. Merci d

DROPS Design 16.09.2013 kl. 09:16:

Bonjour Tricotte, pour avoir suffisamment de place pour être à l'aise, une aiguille circulaire de 80 cm sera parfaite (les manches se tricotent ici avec un jeu d'aiguilles doubles pointes). Bon tricot!

Khadi 10.10.2012 - 04:08:

Bonjour, pour le model d'enfant j'ai frequente un probleme au niveau de la manche, dans les explications vous dites qu'on doit augmenter 1 m de chaque cote de marqueur 11 fois ce qui fait un total de 48 m au lieu de 58m je sais pas est ce que j'ai pas compris ou il y a une erreur merci d'avance

DROPS Design 10.10.2012 kl. 09:57:

Bonjour Khadi, le nombre de mailles après les augmentations est de 48 m, c'est corrigé, merci et bon tricot !
