Sehr geehrtes Drops-Team, wird die Arbeit rund gestrickt? Viele Grüße Viktoria

Liebe Viktoria, Vorder- und Rückenteil sind zuerst in der Runde bis zum Armlöcher gestrickt, dann wird jedes Teil separat gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour Marie et merci, la légende a été corrigée.

Marie 30.09.2011 - 02:33:

Il y a une coquille dans les instructions en français : dans la légende du diagramme, la troisième ligne en partant de la fin indique "2m ens end sur l'end, env sur l'env" alors que c'est l'inverse ! Je trouvais mon encolure moins jolie que sur la photo, évidemment... enfin maintenant ça va mieux. Un immense merci en passant à toute l'équipe pour ce que vous nous offrez, c'est du beau travail, et du travail bien fait. Continuez !!

Bonjour Cécile, le pull se tricote en rond jusqu'aux emmanchures puis le dos et le devant sont terminés en aller retours séparément. Je vous contacte par mail pour la taille XXL.

Cecile 27.10.2010 - 22:59:

Je fais un essai de réalisation de ce modèle et je constate qu'il manque les explications pour la taille XL... de plus je ne comprends pas si je dois tricoter en spirale ou faire des allez retour?

I have another question: This piece is worked back and forth, and I only need to make 1 piece because it has the back and front on it, correct?

Drops Design 26.01.2010 - 16:38:

You work M1 over mid 28 sts, and have 15 sts on each side where the last 3 sts of the 15 are P and they are the sts at each side, the mid st of the last 3 each side are marked. That makes it even.

Drops Design 26.01.2010 - 16:31:

You K2, P3 over 15 sts, the last 3 sts will be P3, put a marker in the middle sts of these 3.

Amy 26.01.2010 - 13:11:

Also, I am making the M size and it seems that the M.1 sts aren't lined up to be the center of the piece?

Amy 26.01.2010 - 10:48:

Hello. I am still confused on where to place the markers for the M size. Is it after doing K2, P3, then place the marker AND do K2,P3 once then place the marker?
