Soulard 15.02.2018 - 16:12:

Je viens de finir la veste en laine Andes. Je la trouve très jolie, lais je pense avoir rabattu les mailles du col trop serré et suis déçue du résultat. Y a t-il un moyen de refaire le "rabattage " avec aiguilles plus grosses sans défaire tout? J'avoue que je suis perdue et j'espère vraiment qu'il y a une solution... Merci à l'avance pour votre aide!

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 16:22:

Bonjour Mme Soulard, si vos mailles rabattues sont trop serrées, il va vous falloir redéfaire ce dernier rang et les rabattre soit avec une aiguille d'une taille au-dessus, soit avec quelques jetés à intervalles réguliers. N'hésitez pas à apporter/montrer votre veste/une photo à votre magasin (même par mail), ils auront probablement d'autres astuces personnalisées pour vous. Bon tricot!

Yvonne 13.02.2018 - 17:22:

Hallo liebes Drops Team, welches Garn wurde bei dem Model auf dem Foto verwendet? Vielen Dank Lg

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 08:38:

Liebe Yvonne, die Jacke auf dem Foto wurde mit Eskimo gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lelletta 08.01.2018 - 12:51:

Scusate ancora, quindi sarebbero le 24 maglie (12 e 12) che si aumentano con i gettati?

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 08:42:

Buongiorno Lelletta. Sì esatto. Buon lavoro!

Lelletta 08.01.2018 - 09:59:

Buongiorno! Ho difficoltà a capire le istruzioni per il collo.Le 28m. (taglia M) sono per la metà davanti? E se non riprendo le 10 m. intrecciate il colletto mi rimane staccato! Aiutatemi per favore! Grazie! Ah...buon anno anche se un po' in ritardo! :)

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 11:17:

Buongiorno Lelletta. Le 28 m sono per tutto il colletto. Il colletto verrà cucito alle 10 m intrecciate, alla fine del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Monica 30.08.2016 - 06:55:

Salve, scusate se insisto, ma secondo me, se aumento per il collo all' inizio di ogni ferro da ciascun lato x 6 volte e devo aumentare 12 m per lato, ci vogliono 6 ferri, non 12...

DROPS Design 30.08.2016 kl. 07:18:

Buongiorno Monica, deve aumentare 6 volte a ogni lato all'inizio del f, per cui procede in questo modo: aumenta, lavora il ferro, gira il lavoro, aumenta, lavora il ferro. Tutto questo per sei volte, così avrà 12 aumenti per lato (= 24 aumenti totali) in 12 ferri totali. Buon lavor

Monica 15.08.2016 - 18:31:

... scusate, volevo dire collo lungo 12 cm (e non 20 cm) lavorato in 20 ferri...

Monica 15.08.2016 - 18:31:

... scusate, volevo dire collo lungo 12 cm (e non 20 cm) lavorato in 20 ferri...

Monica 15.08.2016 - 18:24:

... scusate, volevo dire collo lungo 12 cm (e non 20 cm) lavorato in 20 ferri...

Monica 15.08.2016 - 18:10:

Salve, non ho capito se per il collo devo eseguire i 2 aumenti per lato ogni ferro (quindi in 6 ferri eseguo gli aumenti di 12 m per ogni lato) oppure aumento a ferri alterni (12 ferri per aumentare 12 m per lato); calcolando che per ottenere, come previsto, un collo di 20 cm., lavorerò 20 ferri. Grazie saluti

DROPS Design 15.08.2016 kl. 19:12:

Buonasera Monica. Deve aumentare 2 m, all'inizio di ogni ferro, da ciascun lato, per 6 volte. Quindi 12 ferri per aumentare 12 m da ciascun lato. Buon lavoro!

Diane Kirby 28.07.2016 - 09:00:

I love this pattern but the bottom edges are curling - 2 rows garter stitch and 2 rows rib. Do you have any advice on how to make it lie flat? Thank you.

DROPS Design 28.07.2016 kl. 09:11:

Dear Mrs Kirby, you can block the jacket and/or add a small crocheted border at the bottom of the jacket. Your DROPS store may have more tips & advices for you, they"ll help you even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!
