Hej Drops, jeg kan ikke finde numrene på garnet, de er vist lavet om?? Hvilke numre skal jeg bruge for at få en tilsvarende farve trøje som på billedet/opskriften?? Tusind tak for mange gode opskrifter, som jeg flittigt har gjort brug af :-)

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 08:00:

Hej Lise, Ja nogle af Fabel farverne er desværre udgået, du skulle kunne bruge farve 672 vinrød (samme), 912 chokolade (istedet for brunmix), 153 texmex (istedet for rødorange), 904 lavendel eller 916 grand canyon (istedet for lyngmix). Det er ikke samme farver og det vil ikke blive samme striber, men alle farverne passer sammen. God fornøjelse! :)

Lise 17.06.2018 - 00:27:

Hej jeg har et problem med garnnumrene, de synes ikke at finde mere, hvilke numre skal/kan jeg bruge istedet, så trøjen bliver nogenlunde tilsvarende den som på billedet? :-) 1000 tak for mange dejlige opskrifter, som jeg flittigt har gjort brug af :-)

Bonjour. Je suis en train de faire ce beau gilet, taille XXL. Je viens de commencer le devant droit. Pour les boutonnières, rien n'est indiqué pour la taille XXL. Pouvez-vous m'aider? D'avance merci

DROPS Design 16.11.2017 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Christelle, les indications des boutonnières en taille XXL ont été ajoutées, merci. Bon tricot!

Sabine 06.08.2016 - 03:37:

Hallo Drops-Design-Team, bei dieser Anleitung stimmt nach den Kommentaren von mehreren Strickerinnen der weltweit größten Strickgemeinschaft die Anleitung für die Ärmel nicht - wurden die Fehler inzwischen behoben? Und wenn ja bei allen Übersetzungen? Und wenn nicht - erfolgt das dann noch? Wäre schön!

DROPS Design 08.08.2016 kl. 09:25:

Liebe Sabine, es git keine Korrektur für diese Anleitung, da bei uns keinerlei Rückmeldungen über Probleme mit den Ärmeln eingetroffen sind. Möchten Sie Ihr Problem etwas genauer erläutern?

Jozefien 21.11.2014 - 16:42:

OK. Merci.

Jozefien 21.11.2014 - 14:42:

Dat begrijp ik. Maar hoe krijg ik de steken geteld als ze allemaal schuin staan ? Schatten is riskant.

DROPS Design 21.11.2014 kl. 16:25:

Hoi Jozefien. Doe als volgt: Leg een liniaal horizontaal op het lapje en bij 0 en 10 cm verticaal een speld stekken. Dan steken ertussen tellen. Op het middden van het lapje, niet onder- of bovenaan

Jozefien 21.11.2014 - 11:24:

Ik ben de stekenverhouding op het proeflapje aan het meten, maar kom er niet aan uit: hoe weet je dat je het goede aantal steken heb opstaan ? Langs de schuine lijntjes niet, lijkt me, maar hoe dan wel ?

DROPS Design 21.11.2014 kl. 13:29:

Hoi Jozefien. Je meet het proeflapje horizontaal en diagonaal - op de langste/breedste stuk.

Beppie 01.09.2014 - 20:15:

Het betreft de meerderingen vd mouw! Als ik mt xl brei hoe gaat dan de 1e nld waarin ik de mouwmeerderingen moet doen? in combinatie met het M1 patroon?

DROPS Design 01.09.2014 kl. 20:39:

U breit dan 1 kantsteek, meerder 1 steek, 3 r, herhaal M.1 tot er 4 st over zijn en brei die als 3 r, meerder 1, 1 kantsteek. Hierna breit u 1 kantst, 4 r, herhaal M.1, 4 r, 1 kantsteek, enzovoorts.

Beppie 27.08.2014 - 22:11:

Ik brei mt xl en brei dus 1 kantsteek + 3st r. Mijn 4e st is de eerste van het M1 patroon en daar meerder ik al. Elke maat heeft een ander aantal st r voor je aan M1 begint. Als ik mt S zou breien valt de vierde steek binnen het M1 patroon. Ook snap ik het zinnetje in tips meerderen niet: "Brei de nieuwe st tussen de eerste meerdering en mindering van deze herhaling van M1 aan weersk in tricotsteek. Die 4e steek valt daar bij mij dus niet in, maar net buiten. Ik kom er niet uit.

DROPS Design 01.09.2014 kl. 17:38:

Er wordt bedoeld dat u de steken die niet in M1 passen in tricotsteek breit. Dit gebeurt bijvoorbeeld als u mindert voor de armsgaten.

Beppie 25.08.2014 - 15:35:

Ik heb een vraag over de meerderingen in de mouw: Er staat bij tips meerderen mouw dat je dit moet doen in de 4e steek. Is dit de 4e steek van het M1 patroon, of de 4e steek van de naald?

DROPS Design 27.08.2014 kl. 15:36:

Hoi Beppie. Dat is de 4e st op de nld - aan beide kanten
