Når den nederste rib er strikket, skal der flere gange på hver pind strikkes “4 m glatstrik med vr ud”. Er det en almindelig vrangmaske? Andre masker strikkes bare “4 m som strikkes vr på hver p”. Jeg har kun strikket 1 pind med snoninger og vil helst ikke fortsætte, før jeg er sikker på det her. Mange hilsner Anne Louise

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 14:13:

Hei Anne Louise. Ja det stemmer: 4 masker glattstrikk med vr ut betyr vrangmasker (sett fra retten – rettmasker sett fra vrangen). «4 masker som strikkes vr hver pinne» og «8 masker som strikkes r hver pinne» er det samme som riller, men de er motsatte av hverandre (starter med vrang og starter med rett – sett fra retten) Om du ser nøye på bildet av genseren vil du se dette rillemønsteret. God fornøyelse.

Thank you. I did not look at the diagram and was only following the written instructions. It will probably make sense once I do.

Marilyn Failla 15.12.2016 - 00:41:

I am not sure I understand you - Is it possible for you to write your comments into the pattern directions? Thank you.

DROPS Design 15.12.2016 kl. 09:34:

Dear Mrs Failla, if you look at diagram M.1, there are 8 squares in the width and 1 square = 1 st x 1 row - M.1 will be worked over 8 sts. Happy knitting!

Mariyn Failla 12.12.2016 - 22:35:

I am at the point on the back and front pieces after working the Rib 4K/4P and edge stitches, and after knitting the 2 rows garter stitch while decreasing. The instructions now say "1 edge sts, 4 reverse stockinette, M.1 (=8 sts). This is why I am confused because by my count that makes 6 stitches not 8. What am I not understanding? Thank you.

DROPS Design 13.12.2016 kl. 08:53:

Dear Mrs Failla, M.1 is worked over 8 sts (= Slip 4 sts onto cable needle to front of piece, K 4 K 4 from cable needle). Happy knitting!

Kaisa 28.08.2016 - 12:15:

Hei! Hva er målene på de ulike størrelsene? Jeg er selv litt usikker om jeg er en M eller S, hadde det vært mulig å referere til et brystvidde/midjevidde/hoftebredde? Lurer også på, kunne jeg fått tips om hvordan strikke den med lange ermer, og innsvinging i midja? På forhånd takk for svar, hilsen Kaisa

DROPS Design 29.08.2016 kl. 11:32:

Hej Kaisa. Se maalskitsen nederst paa mönstret. Her finder du alle maal i cm per störrelse. Laes mere her om hvordan du vaelger den rette störrelse. God fornöjelse.

Bonjour, au début de l'ouvrage tricoter en Côtes 4 m end / 4 m env, terminer par 4 m end sauf que a la fin du rang cela ne correspond pas avec 4 mailles end plutôt 4 mailles envers ou est ce normal.

DROPS Design 13.03.2015 kl. 14:13:

Bonjour Nadia, on tricote en côtes ainsi: 1 m lis, puis 17-20-23-26-29 fois (4 m end, 4 m env), et on termine par 4 m env, 1 m lis = 142-166-190-214-238 m. Bon tricot!

Anke 08.10.2012 - 23:27:

Hallo, ich zähle noch zu den Anfängern und habe mir diese Strickjacke ausgesucht. Ich verzweifel langsam total. Den Rückenteil habe ich bereits fertig gestrickt, aber an den Vorderteilen versage ich. Können Sie mir erklären was "die mittleren 6 Maschen für den Hals abk."heißt? Also, wenn ich die am Rand (wo die Blende später drankommt) abnehmen soll, komme ich in den Zopf. Liegt da der Fehler? Viele Grüße aus Hückelhoven Anke

DROPS Design 09.10.2012 kl. 07:19:

Hallo Anke, das sind die Maschen für den Halsausschnitt, die abgekettet werden müssen. Wie Sie auf dem Foto sehen, wird der Zopf auf dieser Höhe abgekettet und läuft nicht bis zur Schulter hoch

Lilicapucine 15.03.2012 - 10:21:

Bonjour, j aime beaucoup cette veste mais j aimerais la faire manches longues. quelqu'un pourrait-il me donner des conseils ? cordialement

DROPS Design 26.03.2012 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Lilicapucine, n'hésitez pas à vous adresser à votre magasin Drops ou sur le forum DROPS où d'autres tricoteuses pourront peut-être vous aider. Bon tricot !
