Buongiorno, se volessi realizzare questo modello in lana e con le maniche lunghe anziché 3/4, quanto filato in più mi occorre? Grazie per la risposta.

DROPS Design 02.02.2018 kl. 21:08:

Buonasera Monica. A questo link trova le indicazioni utili per sostituire i filati. Per la quantità da aggiungere può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

S. 09.05.2016 - 00:18:

Just made the sweater. Love the design. Should I block the pieces before I sew them together? Thanks, S.

DROPS Design 09.05.2016 kl. 11:15:

Dear S. thank you, you may block each piece before sewing them together. Happy knitting!

Kirsten 26.07.2015 - 13:54:

Die angegebene Menge für die Wolle passt bei Größe L nicht. Meine Maschenprobe passt exakt (auch nochmal im Strickstück gemessen), die Abmessungen passen alle und am Ende fehlen mir 20gr. Das ist sehr ärgerlich!

Kirsten 21.07.2015 - 16:45:

Ich beginne gerade mit dem Halsausschnitt, habe also schon ein gutes Stück fertig. Die Blende schlägt nach innen um und ich weiß von einer anderen Jacke, dass das auch nach dem Waschen nicht weggeht. Hätte man hier mit verkürzten Reihen arbeiten können, dass die Blende korrekt fällt?

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 16:59:

Verkürzte R sorgen nur dafür, dass sich eine breite kraus re gestrickte Blende nicht im Verhältnis zum Glatt-re-Gestrick in der Höhe zusammenzieht. Sie können die Jacke anschließend anfeuchten, spannen und gespannt trocknen lassen, das sollte einem Einklappen entgegenwirken.

Vicki Skywark 26.05.2015 - 21:56:

Instructions for sleeve cap are unclear. How many stitches in the bindoff row?

DROPS Design 27.05.2015 kl. 13:16:

Dear Mrs Sykward, cast off for sleeve at the beg of every row on each side ( = both from RS and from WS): 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 2-4-5-6-8-9 times, then cast off 2 sts each side until sleeve measures 42 cm, then cast off 3 sts 1 time each side and cast off remaining sts. Number of remaining sts will depend on your tension in height/how many times you cast off 2 sts each side until piece measures 42 cm. Happy knitting!

Paris 27.01.2015 - 10:49:

Bonjour, Je voudrais tricoter ce gilet en qualite bomull lin. Est-ce possible? (vos modeles sont super)

DROPS Design 27.01.2015 kl. 11:12:

Bonjour Mme Paris, Bomull-lin appartient au groupe C alors que Muskat utilisé dans le gilet appartient au groupe B - pour un gilet en Bomull-lin, regardez plutôt dans les modèles du groupe C. Bon tricot!

Sabine 28.05.2014 - 14:12:

Hallo, ich wurde die Jacke gerne in cotton merino stricken. Wieviel Garn wurde ich brauchen?

DROPS Design 31.05.2014 kl. 00:35:

Liebe Sabine, die Garnmenge ist ja von der Größe abhängig, die Sie stricken möchten. Sie müssen die Gesamtlauflänge des Garns ausrechnen, die in Ihrer Größe für das angegebene Garn (Muskat) benötigt wird, und dann berechnen, wie viel Lauflänge das in Cotton Merino entspricht. Eine Hilfe dazu finden Sie unter "Tipps & Hilfe => Häufig gestellte Fragen" Punkt 5. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Claudia 30.04.2014 - 16:06:

Kann man die Ärmel hier auch in Runden nähen? Ich finde die Nähte beim zusammennähen manchmal störend (vielleicht bekomme ich sie auch nur nicht so gut hin).

DROPS Design 01.05.2014 kl. 00:11:

Liebe Claudia, ja, Sie können die Ärmel bis zur Armkugel auch in Runden stricken. Dann müssen Sie die Randmaschen weglassen, die Zunahmen machen Sie dann an der unteren Ärmelmitte (d.h. Sie nehmen an der unteren Ärmelmitte 2 M zu statt an beiden Seiten je 1 M zuzunehmen). Die erste Abnahme machen Sie wie folgt: Statt beidseitig 1x je 3 M abzuketten, ketten Sie 6 M an der unteren Ärmelmitte ab. Dann stricken Sie hin- und zurück weiter und ketten weiter wie beschrieben beidseitig ab.

Hi!This question is about the yarn. I want to make this sweater and have been checking the distributer in the US (Nordicmart) since July 1st, the first day of your sale. The colors that I want show instock at the wholesale warehouse on your website but they have not been in stock at Nordicmart? I e-mailed them about availability of certain colors but never received a reply. Sorry to bother you about this and thank you for your help. Linda.....:)

DROPS Design 11.07.2013 kl. 10:41:

Dear Mrs Panighetti, do not hesitate to call Nordic Mart 805 20542 209303 for any informations. Happy knitting!

Corry 19.06.2012 - 07:34:

Moet je bij de armsgaten de 4 steken afgekant te hebben aan de zijkant 4 ribbelsteken breien dit staat niet beschreven?

DROPS Design 19.06.2012 kl. 20:06:

Er moeten geen ribbelst worden gebreid. Dit is een vertaalfoutje. U moet minderen naast 4 st zoals nu wordt beschreven. Het patroon is aangepast.
