Kan det være rigtig, at selve mønsteret - slå om, tag 1 m løs af p. 2 r sm, løft den løse m over, slå om - skal foretages fra vrang siden? På forhånd tak

DROPS Design 16.01.2018 kl. 14:08:

Hei Joan. Nei, det burde være slik at man strikker det fra rettsiden. Vi retter det til at 1.rad flyttes opp og blir siste rad på M.1. Takk for tilbakemeldigen. God Fornøyelse videre.

Carmen 22.10.2017 - 16:16:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, wird bei den Vorderteilen tatsächlich an der mittleren Kante für den V-Ausschnitt nicht abgenommen? Also, wenn die Zunahmen für die Rundung gemacht sind, stricke ich zur Mitte hin gerade nach oben weiter?

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 11:31:

Liebe Carmen, es gibt hier keine Abnahmen für den Halsausschnitt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Michela 31.08.2017 - 21:04:

La misura finale 56cm,ok,ma non c e ' scritto con quante maglie finali rimango.grazie e buona serata

DROPS Design 31.08.2017 kl. 22:10:

Buonasera Michela. Dopo aver lavorato queste diminuzioni: 4 m 1 volta, 3 m 1 volta, 2 m 2 volte, 1 m 0-2-4-5-7-9 volte, le rimangono 36 maglie nelle taglie XS, S, M e 40 maglie nelle taglie L - XL - XXL. Misura il lavoro e poi diminuisce 2 m da ciascun fino a quando il lavoro non misura 55 e infine 3 m da ciascun lato una volta. Buon lavoro!

Michela 31.08.2017 - 19:32:

Li Buonasera sto realizzando questo modello,ora ho difficoltà alla tromba della manica,alla fine delle diminuzioni quante maglie mi devo ritrovare?alla fine mi sono ritrovata una manica piu lunga cioè 62 invece di 56,forse sbaglio quando alterno i ferri x cui mi dilungo.grazie

DROPS Design 31.08.2017 kl. 19:59:

Buonasera Michela la misura finale della manica dovrebbe essere di 56 cm. Mentre lavora una manica prenda appunti sui veri giri e aumenti in modo da lavorare le due maniche in modo simmetrico. Buon lavoro!

Michele 13.03.2016 - 22:32:

Is this catalogue #94 still available for purchase, and if so is it most likely to be found? Thank you so much, Michele

DROPS Design 14.03.2016 kl. 09:56:

Dear Michelle, this catalog is out of print - but all of the pattern are still available for you to print them for free from our website. Happy knitting!

Julie Diesman 12.03.2016 - 16:48:

When doing the decreases that begins when piece measures 2", for the right/left front pieces, is the decrease only done on the side edge or on the side AND front edge?

DROPS Design 12.03.2016 kl. 17:59:

Dear Mrs Diesman, on right/left front piece, you dec on the side as for back piece, ie towards the side that will be sewn to back piece (opposite side of towards mid front/front edge). Happy knitting!

Jeannine 12.06.2015 - 12:53:

Guten Tag. Warum soll man Nadeln und nicht eine Rundnadel für das Modell nehmen? Wo sind die Knopflöcher, oder sind keine? Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort.

DROPS Design 15.06.2015 kl. 21:19:

Sie können auch eine Rundnadel nehmen, was Sie lieber mögen. "Nadel" kann Stricknadelpaar oder Rundnadel bedeuten. Knöpfe hat die Jacke nicht, sie wird mit einer Brosche, Nadel o.Ä. geschlossen.

Suzie Leblanc 13.01.2015 - 04:03:

Je vous remercie d'avoir pris le temps de me répondre. Le problème demeure car j'avais suivi les instructions à la lettre. J'ai recommencé la bordure en relevant moins de mailles tout autour du tricot avec des aiguilles circulaires plus courtes. Je crois qu'il y a de l'amélioration. Merci encore.

Suzie Leblanc 11.01.2015 - 15:40:

Bonjour, Je tricote la grandeur Large. J'ai terminé la bodure et les devants droit et gauche ne tombent pas bien. Il faut recommencer. Je ne sais pas ce que je n'ai pas compris. Il y a une augmentation de 20 mailles et 6 mailles de diminution sur le côté pour un total de 38 mailles comme indiqué. On dirait qu'il y a trop de mailles du côté de l'arrondi. Je suis très découragée car le temps presse, c'est pour un cadeau d'anniversaire. Avez-vous un conseil?

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 10:18:

Bonjour Mme Leblanc, Pour la bordure, on augmente uniquement dans les sections envers entre les 2 marqueurs de chaque devant: 1 m env à 4 cm de bordure puis 1 m env à 8 cm de côtes (= on a 5 m env entre les 2 marqueurs uniquement, sur chacun des 2 devants), ces augmentations permettent de conserver l'arrondi de chacun des devants. Bon tricot!

Sandra 11.01.2015 - 10:19:

Liebes Drops-Team, ich brauche kurz Hilfe bei der Kante um den Körper. Leider sieht man es auf dem Bild nicht so gut... Nehme ich die Maschen am gesamten Halsausschnitt auf, also auch am hinteren Nackenbereich oder nur bis zur Schulternaht??? Danke vorab für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 11.01.2015 kl. 15:27:

Die Kante läuft einmal komplett rundum, also auch hinten im Nackenbereich.
