Wieviel Meter Drops Eskimo Wolle sind 50 g

DROPS Design 03.10.2018 kl. 07:59:

Liebe Doris, 1 Knaüel Eskimo = 50 g/ca 50 m. Mehr über die Wollen lesen Sie hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Yvonne 04.10.2017 - 12:12:

Hallo liebes Drops Team, Frage zu der Jacke. Bin gerade bei der Kapuze Größe 5-6 Jahre. Ist die Maschenanzahl 42 für die Kapuze die gesamte Anzahl oder muss ich die zu den 30-40 Maschen bei der Aufnahme der Kapuze dazu addieren? Herzlichen Dank. Yvonne

DROPS Design 04.10.2017 kl. 16:52:

Liebe Yvonne, Sie müssen 42 M im total nach der Zunahmen haben (ca 30-40 M werden aufgenommen, regelmäßig ab- bzw zunehmen damit Sie 42 M haben). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anni Larsen 22.06.2017 - 20:47:

Ser ud til at begge nissehuer er på damme p 5.5 sevl om der står p 9 til eskimo garn hvor finder jeg den opskrift der passee til eskimogarn

DROPS Design 23.06.2017 kl. 07:49:

Hei Anni. Jakken strikkes i Eskimo og på pinne 9, men vottene og luen strikkes i Alaska og på pinne 5,5 (se lengre ned på oppskriften, så ser du informasjonen). God Fornøyelse!

Martha Ntakou 25.01.2017 - 23:30:

Another great design! My only complaint so far is the buttonhole, where it is mentioned the YO should be worked in the back on the next row. That made the hole disappear and I had to unknit the work and knit it again normally as it is shown on the video.

Kit 31.10.2015 - 12:35:

Wbt de wanten. Moet de duim echt met 9mm en niet 5mm gebreid worden of is dit een foutje? En wat wordt bedoeld met 2 draden opzetten en 1 weer uithalen? Is dat voor een elastische boord? Eskimowol er weer uithalen gaat verre van makkelijk namelijk. Alvast bedankt voor uw antwoorden!

DROPS Design 02.11.2015 kl. 14:44:

Hoi Kit. Nee, die moet zeker niet met 9 mm. Dat is een fout in de vertaling. Ik pas aan. En je zet op met 2 draden, maar breit met één. Je moet niet de draad uithalen, maar één eraf knippen. Ik hoop dat het zo duidelijker is.

Sara Sundberg 23.02.2015 - 20:03:

Hej, jag undrar vart beskrivningen till tofsarna finns som ska sitta på tröjan, det står att den finns på sidan 3, men vart är det?

DROPS Design 03.03.2015 kl. 14:11:

Hej Sara. Det er beskrivelsen i kataloget, det kan du ikke finde her. Men du kan se en video her hvordan du kan lave tofsar:

Dörte 29.11.2013 - 18:56:

Hej! Vilka storlekar motsvarar åldrarna? Tack på förhand! Dörte

DROPS Design 05.12.2013 kl. 09:17:

Gå efter måtten som du hittar i måttskissen nederst i beskrivningen. Lycka till !

Anne Marie De Souza 19.10.2013 - 16:14:

Hej i opskriften er angivet pinde 9 med garn eskimo, skal der bruges dobbelt garn?

DROPS Design 21.10.2013 kl. 16:49:

Hej Anne Marie. Nej, du skal kun bruge 1 tråd.

Joyce 31.01.2013 - 11:41:

Wat wordt er bedoeld met 4 st in een draad? het gaat om de linkervoorpand op een hoogte van 43 cm en moet ik afkanten in de 4 ribbelsteken? of kan ik dat beter in de tricosteken doen naast de ribbelst

DROPS Design 31.01.2013 kl. 16:15:

Je plaatst de 4 st op een draad/speld of dergelijks. Dan kant je af in de tricotst naast de 4 ribbelst. Bij de capuchon zet je dan de 4 st van beide voorpanden terug op de nld.

Marianne 15.10.2012 - 20:46:

Hei igjen. Tusen takk for hurtig svar! Jeg ser nå at spørsmålet mitt var litt uklart så jeg prøver en gang til:) hvor mange masker skal man felle av på den aller siste pinnen (den pinnen hvor man klipper av tråden når siste maske er felt av) ? Mvh, Marianne

DROPS Design 24.10.2012 kl. 11:43:

Når du starter fellingen måler arbeidet 28 cm, det skal da på annenhver pinne felle tilsammen 9 masker i hver side, arbeidet måler da ca 32 cm, og det vil være 12 masker igjen på pinnen (men her må det tas hensyn til om man har fulgt den anbefalte strikkefastheten). mvh Drops design
