Buongiorno,mi piacerebbe poter eseguire il modello con maniche a 3/4, come posso ricavare i punti necessari? Grazie

VU Anna 24.11.2018 - 01:54:

Bonjour Madame, Je crois qu'il y a une erreur de frappe pour le nombre de mailles à monter pour les manches pour la taille S : Il serait plus juste que ce soit 38 mailles au lieu de 28 comme indiqué. Merci pour votre confirmation.

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 07:47:

Bonjour Mme Vu, c'est exact, il faut bien monter 38 m en taille S, la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

MARGARET R LERNER 02.07.2017 - 17:50:

1. Instructions for pattern says that chart on the left M.2 is Pattern 2 and chart on the right is Patterns 1A and 1B, this is the reverse of the actual presentation of the charts. 2. also, i had selected language English (US/in) but all of the instructions per se are in cm.

DROPS Design 03.07.2017 kl. 10:18:

Dear Mrs Lerner, M.1 A/B and M.2 are the correct diagrams. Measurements in inches will be added, thanks for your feedback. Happy knitting!

Boulogne 27.03.2015 - 11:21:

Bonjour, par quelle qualité peut-on remplacer la laine vivaldi? merci

DROPS Design 30.03.2015 kl. 16:17:

Bonjour Mme Boulogne, Vivaldi appartenait au groupe C de nos qualités, DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk est une bonne alternative, cliquez ici pour calculer la quantité nécessaire (poids/métrage) lorsque vous choisissez une alternative. Votre magasin DROPS pourra vous aider et vous conseiller si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

Greta 28.02.2015 - 01:04:

Bonjour, j'aimerais savoir comment adapter ce modèle en taille XS, est-ce seulement le nombre de mailles à monter qui est réduit ou est-ce plus complexe que cela? (dommage que tous les modèles ne soient pas à ma taille :( )

DROPS Design 28.02.2015 kl. 09:02:

Bonjour Greta, vous trouverez en bas de page un schéma avec toutes les mesures pour chaque taille, prises à plat, d'un côté à l'autre. Comparez ces mesures à celles d'un vêtement analogue qui vous va et dont vous aimez la forme pour pouvoir ajuster. Pour toute assistance personnalisée, rappelez-vous que votre magasin DROPS peut vous aider. Bon tricot!

Mme Berteau 30.10.2014 - 18:38:

Merci beaucoup pour votre aide , je vais pouvoir continuer tranquillement mon tricot.

BERTEAU 28.10.2014 - 19:58:

Pour les demi devant on demande de tricoter l'encolure comme à l'avant et à la fin on nous demande d'assembler le col, sauf que je ne vois pas d'explications pour tricoter le col. Est ce normal? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 29.10.2014 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Mme Berteau, quand les mailles de l'épaule sont rabattues, on continue sur les 7-8 m restantes pour former la bordure d'encolure qui sera ensuite cousue le long de l'encolure dos. La vidéo ci-dessous montre le principe de ce type de col châle simple. Bon tricot!

Jessica 09.08.2014 - 10:07:

Guten Tag, ich habe eine frage zu den cm angaben in der Anleitung: Sie geben an das die erhöhten Maschen am Rückenteil nach 9 cm gestrickt werden. Ich werde leider nicht daraus schlau. Sind mit den 9 cm die gesamte Höhe des Strickstückes gemeint? Oder werden die Maschen zugenommen nachdem einmal M1 in der Höhe gestrickt wurde (was ja mit einer Höhe von 9 cm angegeben ist)?

DROPS Design 11.08.2014 kl. 09:39:

Liebe Jessica, mit den 9 cm ist die Gesamthöhe gemeint. Das gilt, soweit nicht anders angegeben, auch für die anderen cm-Angaben.

Sabine 21.01.2014 - 11:09:

Wo finde ich denn die Maße in cm für die verschiedenen Größen?

DROPS Design 22.01.2014 kl. 08:25:

LIebe Sabine, alle cm Angaben finden Sie unten in der Massskizze.

Julie B 05.07.2012 - 16:34:

Dans l'explication du devant droit, à la 8e ligne, on peut lire " tricoter 1 rang end avec les 5 m côté...". Devrait-on lire 1 rang env? Avec un rang end, on a 2 rang point mousse consécutif alors qu'au dos et aux manches, on en a qu'un. Merci pour tout vos merveilleux modèles!

DROPS Design 06.07.2012 kl. 10:09:

Bonjour Julie, effectivement on tricote 1 rang sur l'envers avec les 5 m en côtes et 1 m lis au point mousse comme avant, le texte a été corrigé. Merci et bon tricot !
