Hallo. ich habe Schwierigkeiten die Anleitung und das Diagram zu verstehen. In der Anleitung steht, dass man nach 13 cm eine Masche abnehmen muss, im Diagram ist das mit 5 cm angegeben. Lt Maschenprobe sind 5 cm aber 6 Maschen. Oder verstehe ich die Anleitung falsch? Vielen DAnk

LIebe Strickmaus60, Sie fangen mit 86 Maschen = 72 cm und nach Abketten haben Sie nur noch 84 Maschen = 70 cm - wie in der unteren Maßskizze gezeigt. Dann stricken Sie 5 cm Bündchen = 5 cm Bündchen um Ärmel + 70 cm + 5 cm Bündchen um Ärmel sind = 80 cm wie in der 1. Maßskizze gezeigt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hei! Har så lyst til å strikke denne boleroen, men ser at Vivaldi er utgått. Hvilket garn kan jeg erstatte Vivaldi med i denne oppskriften? Mvh Ellen

DROPS Design 13.06.2018 kl. 14:54:

Hej Ellen, du kan bruge DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk, men prøv også vores nye garnkalkulator :)

Bellissimo modello, lo sto realizzando, però sono alla fine è non capisco dalle istruzioni come cucirlo, potreste darmi maggiori spiegazioni? Grazie

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 19:45:

Buongiorno Sandra. Nel grafico più in basso, dove c’è la stella, è riportato come si presenta il bolero prima della confezione. Deve piegare il lavoro in due, in corrispondenza della linea continua a metà del lavoro, in modo che la maglia rasata rovescia resti sull’esterno, e cucire tra i loro i 13 cm più in basso, lasciando l’apertura per le braccia. Deve poi riprendere le m lungo tutta l’apertura del bolero e lavorare a coste. Lavora un bordo uguale intorno alle estremità delle maniche. Buon lavoro!

Jag förstår inte riktigt, när ska jag använda alpackagarnet? Förstår att jag ska börja med vivaldi men kan inte se något i beskrivningen om alpackagarnet.

Hej Mathilda. Jo, den skal du bruge til kanterne

ReNeau 17.08.2014 - 00:22:

Is the stitch count in this correct. I am making the small size and it say to cast on 86 sts. So when you finish and put the edges together there would only be 172 sts. and the pattern says you would pick up 243 st. for the rib edge. So where do the extra 71 stitches come from. Please help

DROPS Design 18.08.2014 kl. 12:48:

Dear Mrs Re-Neau, you have to pick up a total of 243 sts around openning so that the edge is not too tight. Happy knitting!

Wo sind auf der schematischen Zeichnung die Armlöcher und wo die Seitennähte? Vielen Dank, Marion

DROPS Design 26.06.2013 kl. 20:58:

Liebe Marion, diese entstehen, wenn Sie das Strickstück nach Anleitung zusammennähen.

FULCONIS 14.03.2012 - 12:23:

Merci beaucoup pour votre gentillesse et votre patience dans vos explications mais je débute en tricot.... Ce sera mon 1er vrai tricot fini en dehors des écharpes!!!! MERCI beaucoup pour tout et à bientôt pour d'autres modèles!!!

FULCONIS 14.03.2012 - 11:18:

Donc je tricote r1 : 1 m end, 2 m env r2 après le marqueur : 1 m end, 2 m env r3 après le marqueur : 1 m end, 2 m env etc... c'est bien cela????

DROPS Design 14.03.2012 kl. 12:07:

Oui en tricotant en rond, vous tricotez toujours les mailles comme elles se présentent sur l'endroit, donc tout le tour et tous les tours, vous répétez *1 m end, 2 m env*. Bon tricot

Fulconis 13.03.2012 - 20:31:

Bonjour, je suis en train de tricoter le col et je me demande comment faire les côtes avec les aiguilles circulaires : sur des aiguilles droites on place les mailles env sur les mailles envers et les mailles droites sur les mailles droites. Mais à la fin du rang on change d'aiguille. Mais avec les aiguilles circulaire on tricote en rond .... et là je bloque ;-( Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 14.03.2012 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour, pour tricoter en rond, vous mettez un marqueur au début du tour et tricotez en côtes tout le tour, tout autour jusqu'à la hauteur indiquée. Consultez notre vidéothèque pour y découvrir comment tricoter en rond sur aiguille circulaire. Bon tricot !

Du syr de små kanten (før man feller og etter man øker) sammen.
