Jeg er igang med med Drops baby 2-8 str (6-9). Opskriften siger start med M1, men billedet viser M3 nederst på blusen. Hvad er rigtigt? Vh Irene

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 09:07:

Hei Irene. Det er M.1 som strikkes nederst på blusen: som du kan se går M.1 fra nederst på diagrammet og opp til toppen av snømannen. M.3 utgjør den nederste delen av M.1, og dette diagrammet strikkes på ermene - der du kan se den samme mønsterborden, men uten snømannen. God fornøyelse.

Le nombre de maille des manches (6/9 mois) n\\\\\\\'est pas bon pour faire le motif. Du coup, on enlève 2mailles ou en rajoute 4 ?

DROPS Design 03.10.2018 kl. 08:14:

Bonjour Mme Pham, le nombre de mailles est correct ainsi, vous devez centrer un motif au milieu sur la manche - vous trouverez ici comment faire. Bon tricot!

Lelletta 18.10.2016 - 18:40:

Si, lo so, come ripeto sono una Vostra cliente già da tempo, ma credevo che il tutto facesse capo a Voi.Mi scuso e Vi saluto cordialmente.

Lelletta 18.10.2016 - 00:01:

Buonasera! Riferisco a voi un problema, anche se questo forse non è il posto giusto, ma volevo comunicarVi che nonostante la mia postepay scada il 31/10/2016 non viene accettata in quanto tale data non viene ritenuta valida! Perché??? Sono una Vostra affezionata cliente e ci sono rimasta malissimo!! Pazienza, comprerò altrove! Buon lavoro!

DROPS Design 18.10.2016 kl. 00:17:

Buonasera Lelletta. Dal sito DROPS non è possibile ordinare direttamente,  ma si  viene reindirizzati ai nostri distributori autorizzati. Per problemi con il pagamento può mettersi in contatto direttamente con il rivenditore per trovare la soluzione migliore. Buon lavoro!

Kan desværre ikke se hvordan sokkerne ser ud. Findes der et billede el. lign.

Jeanne D Arc Acaire 26.11.2013 - 19:51:

Dans ce modele il n y a pas d explication pour le dos du chandail spécialement pour l encolure qui ne doit pas etre la meme que le devant Merci de me répondre et de m envoyer les explications

DROPS Design 27.11.2013 kl. 09:33:

Bonjour Mme D'Arc Acaire, le paragraphe manquant pour le dos a été rajouté - merci. Bon tricot!

Anastasia 26.09.2013 - 00:26:

The number of cast on stitches for the 9-12 months and 3 years sizes are wrong. They need to be a multiple of 12 for the pattern chart to work.

DROPS Design 26.09.2013 kl. 20:47:

Dear Anastasia, number of sts have been edited for 2nd and 3rd size. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Gunnel Öhman 25.08.2012 - 11:48:

Jag har svårt att förstå mönstret med M1,M2,M3 och M4. Jag skulle gärna betala den tidning som denna underbara tröja finns i.Tack på förhand

Ulla Schnabel 02.11.2010 - 10:34:

Jeg kan ikke se opskriften ,men kun mønsteret ,kan det være rigtigt . venlig hilsen ulla

Marianne Lønvig 14.02.2010 - 19:13:
