Buonasera, volevo chiederti se esiste un tutorial di inizio, a parte l avvio, come si svolgono i giri seguenti, non capisco l apertura iniziale, grazie

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 16:00:

Buongiorno Annalisa. Dopo aver avviato le maglie, lavora inizialmente in ferri di andata e di ritorno. Lavora 2 ferri a punto legaccio e poi prosegue a maglia rasata lavorando le prime 2 maglie e le ultime 2 maglie a legaccio. Segua le indicazioni per aumentare. Terminata l'apertura al centro sul davanti, lavora in tondo. Buon lavoro!

Francoise 08.10.2017 - 20:34:

Bonjour,pouvez-vous m'expliquer pour l'encolure du modèle : sauter 2 m/ rangs Dois-je comprendre : je saute 2 m à chaque fois ? Et que veux dire dans la m /le rang suivant ? Grand merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 09.10.2017 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Françoise, pour crocheter la bordure, sautez, en fonction du sens de la partie tricotée, soit 2 mailles (sur les parties en largeur) soit 2 rangs (sur les parties en hauteur), et crochetez la ms suivantes dans la maille ou dans le rang suivant. Bon crochet!

Béatrice De Flores 15.03.2017 - 18:09:

Bonjour, Habituée à suivre sans problème les explications de vos modèles j'ai commandé le fil nécessaire à se modèle sans me poser de question. Cependant je n'arrive pas à comprendre comment on peut arriver à une fente en faisant des allers retours indistinctement. Faut-il répéter quelque chose en s'arrêtant à la moitié du travail? Les indications ne me semblent pas claires. A l'avance merci.

DROPS Design 16.03.2017 kl. 08:26:

Bonjour Mme De Flores, on tricote en allers et retours au tout début, puis on continue en rond jusqu'à la fin, la partie tricotée en rangs va former la fente d'encolure. Bon tricot!

Gabriele 13.09.2016 - 13:19:

Hallo liebes Drops-team, Mit wie viel Fäden wird die Mütze gehäkelt? Liebe Grüße, Gabriele

DROPS Design 13.09.2016 kl. 14:11:

Liebe Gabrielle, die Mütze ist mit 1 Faden Eskimo mit Häkelnadel Nr 8 (siehe Maschenprobe) gehäkelt.

Inge 19.11.2015 - 20:29:

Hvad betyder m/p under hækling af slids?

DROPS Design 20.11.2015 kl. 10:34:

Hej Inge. m/p = maske/pind

Cinzia 20.01.2015 - 17:53:

Come posso fare questo poncho senza ferri circolari? grazie

DROPS Design 20.01.2015 kl. 18:29:

Buonasera Cinzia, la prima parte del poncho è lavorata avanti e indietro sui ferri, poi viene chiuso e lavorato in tondo. Se preferisce può continuare con i ferri dritti, tenendo conto che per come è strutturato la cucitura risulterà sul davanti. buon lavoro!

Patouche 03.11.2014 - 17:12:

Bonjour, je suis en train de faire ce modèle et je me demande ce que vous entendez en disant pour le bonnet rang 2 "faire une bride dans la 1 ere bride" je l'entends faire 3 ml ? En vous remerciant Cordialement Patouche

DROPS Design 04.11.2014 kl. 09:11:

Bonjour Patouche, en début de tour, on remplace effectivement la 1ère B par 3 ml, les fois suivantes (R3 et 4), on crochète 1 B dans la m suivante. Bon crochet!

Anne Marie Hansen 12.10.2014 - 21:37:

Jeg er ved at strikke str. 4 kan det passe at jeg skal strikke 10 cm glat strik efter udtagninger for at få den rigtige længde ? Jeg har kontrolleret strikkefasthed og den passer.

DROPS Design 22.10.2014 kl. 10:39:

Hej Anne Marie, Du øger på hver 2.pind som der står tidligere i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Angélique 14.07.2014 - 10:20:

Bonjour, Je voulais réaliser le poncho avec le bonnet par contre je n'ai même pas assez d'une pelote de Drops Eskimo pour finir le bonnet, pourtant niveau dimension c'est correct. Vous me confirmez qu'il faut uniquement 50g d'Eskimo pour le bonnet ET le poncho? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 14.07.2014 kl. 11:38:

Bonjour Angélique, il faut 50 g Eskimo pour le poncho (bordures et pompons) ET 50/100 g Eskimo pour le bonnet (cf fournitures bonnet par taille au-dessus des explications du bonnet). Bon tricot et crochet !

Lisa 02.03.2014 - 05:18:

For the last knit row of the poncho is the increase supposed to be a yarn over or other method? - 'purl 1 round, and then knit 1 round whilst inc 1 st in every 4th st on round. On next round, bind off in purled sts.' Thank you.

DROPS Design 03.03.2014 kl. 09:34:

Dear Lisa, inc with a yo as before, and P yo into back of loop on next round while casting off. Happy knitting!
