Bij Drops patroon 105 - 30 zie ik in het patroon nergens de uitleg over het maken van de kraag. Wat zie ik over het hoofd? Alvast bedankt, Astri

Hoi Astri. Er is geen kraag, het is het omvouwen van de sjaal die de "kraag" maakt op de foto.

Muss der Schal 2mal gestrickt und dann hinten in der Mitte zusammen genäht werden? Vielen Dank.

Sie stricken das Tuch von unten ab der Spitze nach oben zum Rand in einem Stück, es wird nichts zusammengenäht. Die Form ergibt sich durch die beidseitigen Zunahmen am Rand, dadurch wird es immer breiter und dreieckig. Gutes Gelingen!

Hej. Det står i beskrivningen att man ska sticka med en tråd alpacka. Betyder det att jag ska pilla isär tråden till de tre trådar som alpackan är spunnet i? Eller använder jag tråden så som den är i sitt nystan? Hoppas att ni förstår min fråga. Mvh Gabriella

DROPS Design 11.02.2013 kl. 16:21:

Du använder tråden så som den är i sitt nystan!

Maria 10.10.2012 - 20:15:

Do I need to knit two parts of the shawl and then sew it in the back?

DROPS Design 14.11.2012 kl. 16:18:

Dear Maria, this shawl is worked in one piece starting from the tip at the bottom of back piece, increasing 1 st each side every other row until piece measure 70 cm (pls remember to hang the shawl to measure it). Happy knitting!

DROPS Design 11.03.2010 - 18:26:

Sue, you are correct.

Sue 11.03.2010 - 16:22:

Is the body of the shawl worked in 1 strand of alpaca and the crochet edge in 1 strand of alpaca and 1 of the cotton viscose?

En rigtig sød stola,som jeg lige har strikket.Fin opskrift men det ville være ønskeligt om det var mål el.størrelse på. Jeg er en str. 44 over barmen så den måtte gerne være lidt mere vidde i til mig. Men ellers en sød model. VH.Ruth H.
