Hei, Olen tehnyt muutamat tossut miehelleni ja ne on käytetty puhki. Nyt on seuraavat työn alla. Onko mitään keinoa saada niistä kestävämmät, koska vain villa huopuu.

Hei. Jeg tror det må være en feil i denne oppskriften. Det står at man skal fstrikke sammen 5 og 6 maske i hver side, men det antallet masker man skal sitte igjen med stemmer da ikke. Håper dere kan se på dette og rette det, dersom det er en feil. Mvh Katrine.

BURKE 11.08.2017 - 22:38:

The pattern makes sense to me as I read through it until I get to the part that says "now make foot" It gives the length it should be immediately before that. And then it gives a length immediately after. But there are no instructions for making the foot. Are there instructions for making the foot or is it just straight knitting with no additional shaping until get to the new length

DROPS Design 12.08.2017 kl. 07:59:

Hi Burke, Yes, you carry on working the foot without decreases to the required length, then begin decreases. Happy knitting!

Wie muss ich die Größenangaben verstehen: die Größen 35 bis 40 sind farbig hinterlegt, nur dafür gibt es Mengenangabe für die Wolle und Anleitung? Wenn ja, gibt es irgendwo eine Anleitung und Mengenangabe für die größeren Größen wie 45? Danke!

DROPS Design 05.11.2015 kl. 13:12:

Die Größen finden Sie oben im Kopf: 35/37 - 38/39 - 40/42 - 43/45. In dieser Reihenfolge sind auch die Zahlen in der Anleitung und die Mengenangaben zu verstehen. Die erste Zahl steht also z.B. immer für Gr. 35/37 und die letzte für Gr. 43/45. Die Farbalternativen können Sie also für jede der Größen stricken.

Dorte Rosenskjold 15.09.2015 - 14:29:

Jeg forstår ikke... retstrik 2 yderste masker - skal alle maskerne ikke retstrikkes? jeg er gået helt i står her, øv øv er der evt video? vh Dorte Fortsæt i glatstrik med de yderste 2 m i retstrik til færdig mål. Nu tages der 1 m ud i hver side ved at strikke 2 m i yderste m: 3-4-4-4 gange på hver 2.p = 21-23-23-25 m. Strik 1 p uden udtagning. På næste p slåes der 2 nye m op i starten og i slutningen af p = 25-27-27-29m.

Maj Jørgensen 01.01.2015 - 11:48:

Hejsa. Jeg forstår ikke helt det med hvordan tøflen skal syes sammen. Skal tåen løftes op på midt på foden og syes på der så tøflen bliver tykkere ved tåen? Eller hvordan skal det lige forståes. Hilsen Maj

DROPS Design 04.02.2015 kl. 16:08:

Hej Maj, Nej du skal bare sy sømmen midt ovenpå foden først og så derefter syr du "sålen" til det øverste stykke yderst i tåen. God fornøjelse!

Christina 12.12.2014 - 17:04:

Hallo! Ich möchte dieses Model gerne nachstricken, habe aber Probleme mit der Anleitung: Jetzt wie folgt aufnehmen, indem man 2 M. in die äusserste M. strickt: bei jeder 2. R. 1 M. 3-4-4-4 Mal = 21-23-23-25 M. Bedeutet das ich stricke eine reihe normal, dann in der 2. Reihe stricke ich in die erste und in die letzte Masche 2 Maschen? Aber was bedeutet 3 bzw. 4 Mal? Liebe Grüße.

DROPS Design 14.12.2014 kl. 10:20:

Ja genau, das haben Sie richtig verstanden. 3 bzw. 4 x heißt, dass Sie die Zunahmen in 3 bzw. 4 Reihen machen, mit jeweils einer R ohne Zunahmen dazwischen. Insgesamt haben Sie dann 6 bzw. 8 M zugenommen.

FLORENCE 12.12.2014 - 16:39:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas votre explication pour l'assemblage, pouvez vous m'aider, merci bien

DROPS Design 14.12.2014 kl. 16:58:

Bonjour Florence, coudre sur l'envers les mailles du dessus du pied (en veillant que la couture ne soit pas trop épaisse) puis assemblez les mailles de la pointe entre elles - puis formez une petite bordure en pliant les côtés du talon à 3 m du bord. Bon tricot!

Ingunn Gjesdal 18.11.2014 - 16:38:

Kan dere hjelpe meg med monteringen av tøffelen?

DROPS Design 25.11.2014 kl. 15:22:

Hej Ingunn, Vi har ingen video endnu, men således gør du: Sy sammen sømmen midt oppå foten i ytterste m slik sømmen ikke blir tykk! Legg tåen dobbel med sømmen midt oppå og sy tåen i ytterste m.
