Hei, denne genseren var fin. Ser at garnet er utgått. Hva kan det erstattes med? Mvh, Tone

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 11:25:

Hej Tone, det kan du erstatte med DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk, prøv garnkalkulatoren OG sørg for at du får samme strikkefasthed som der står i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Sara 22.05.2015 - 17:39:

Bngiorno, volendo fare questo modello taglia M con il brushed alpaca che ferri dovrei usare e quanta lana mi dovrebbe servire ? grazie

DROPS Design 22.05.2015 kl. 18:07:

Buongiorno Sara. Le occorreranno 150 gr di Brushed Alpaca Silk che corrispondono a 6 gomitoli. Come misura dei ferri, lavorerà con la misura che le consente di ottenere il campione indicato nelle spiegazioni del modello. Buon lavoro!

Purity 02.12.2013 - 06:57:

Hi-i need your help about the top of the sleeve its very ununderstood.please explain again

DROPS Design 02.12.2013 kl. 14:21:

Dear Purity, when sleeve measures 47-44 cm (see size), cast off at the beg of every row each side : first 3 sts each side then cast off 1 st each side until sleeve measures 56-57 cm then cast off 2 sts each side once and cast off remaining sts. Happy knitting!

Annette Epps 17.11.2013 - 20:39:

Don't understand how many stitches should be left after decreasing at top of sleeve.

DROPS Design 18.11.2013 kl. 10:10:

Dear Mrs Epps, number of sts remaining at the top of sleeve depends on size worked and on nber of rows for 10 cm, ie, you should dec/cast-off: 3 sts 1 time + 1 st each side until sleeve measures 56-56-56-56-57 cm, now dec 2 sts each side and cast off remaining sts when piece measures 57-57-57-57-58 cm (see size). Happy knitting!

Schneider 02.10.2013 - 19:01:

Je ne sais pas comment on peut tricoter avec une seule aiguille ! il faudrait aussi les mesures de la manche à plat

DROPS Design 02.10.2013 kl. 19:24:

Bonjour Mme Schneider, le montage se fait sur 2 aiguilles et on continue ensuite avec les mailles sur 1 seule aiguille (cf vidéo ci-dessous). En bas des explications vous trouverez un schéma avec les mesures du pull à plat: 19 à 23 cm (selon la taille choisie) x 2 pour la largeur totale de la manche. Bon tricot!

Dawn 30.04.2013 - 00:12:

I am having such a hard time understanding the instructions for binding off for the arm holes. "...bind off for armholes each side in beg of every row each side: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 1-2-2-3-3 times = 38-41-42-43-44 sts. When piece measures 68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26 3/4"-27½"-28½"-29"-30" cast/bind off the middle 26-27-28-29-30 sts for neck and work each side separately. "

DROPS Design 30.04.2013 kl. 12:45:

Dear Dawn, instructions are given in the same order as sizes, ie, for smallest size, you will bind off for armholes each side at the beg of every row 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 1 time = 38 sts remain. When piece measures 68 cm, you cast off the middle 26 sts for neck and finish each side separately. Happy knitting !

Ich habe eine Maschenprobe mit einer 8er nadel gestrickt und komme auf viel weniger reihen wie in der Anleitung angegeben. Liegt hier ein Schreibfehler vor? Danke Katrin

DROPS Design 05.09.2012 kl. 07:29:

Ich kann es mir nicht anders erklären, als dass unsere Maschenprobe ungedehnt gemessen ist. Da ja der Unterschied in der Höhe ist, empfehle ich Ihnen, das Strickstück immer wieder hängend zu messen und sich dann an den cm-Angaben zu orientieren.

26.02.2006 - 12:21:

den er smuk, den må jeg strikke!

TFL 24.01.2006 - 15:12:

Flot, let og lækker trøje...denne vil jeg strikke.

litenfossing 11.01.2006 - 23:03:
