Sorry, nog een klein vraagje. Is ook mogelijk om dit patroon te maken in jullie nieuwe garen Melody?

DROPS Design 28.09.2015 kl. 12:07:

Hoi Estha. Nee, daar is Melody te dik voor. Maar je zou kunnen breien met Brushed Alpaca Silk.

Estha 18.09.2015 - 07:46:

Hallo, is het ook mogelijk om dit patroon in tricot te breien met de voorbies in recht?

DROPS Design 18.09.2015 kl. 10:25:

Hoi Estha. Niet zonder de het patroon aan te passen met aantal steken. Brei je in tricotsteken heb je minder naalden per 10 cm, dus brei eerst een proeflapje in tricotsteken en vergelijk met de vermelde stekenverhouding in ribbelst en maak je calculaties.

Benedetta 29.11.2013 - 21:34:

Buonasera,ho capito i vari passaggi e non ci sono più' problemi.grazie per il vs aiuto,come sempre

Benedetta 26.11.2013 - 20:37:

Buonasera,vorrei capire come si lavora il davanti:lavorare 20 m,girare e lavorare un ferro di ritorno,lavorare tutte le m.dal centro davanti(?)al lato,girare e lav.il ferro di ritorno fino al centro davanti"ripetere fino alla fine del lavoro.spero di riuscire a capire.Grazie per la vs collaborazione.

DROPS Design 26.11.2013 kl. 23:05:

Buonasera Benedetta. Il primo ferro lo lavora su tutte le m, iniziando dal lato  che verrà cucito al dietro e procedendo verso il bordo centrale della giacca.  Giri il lavoro e prosegua a ferri accorciati iniziando dal bordo centrale : lavori 14 m, giri il lavoro e torni indietro su queste 14 m, giri e lavori 17 m, torni indietro, giri e lavori 20 m, torni indietro e adesso lavori due ferri su tutte le m. Riprenda poi a lavorare 14 m e così via. Ci riscriva se non è chiaro. Buon lavoro!

(je l'avais commencé en 2008 Vivaldi: dos réalisé mais au demi-devant je ne comprenais pas les explications des rangs raccourcis. Je l'avais rangé soigneusement et aujourd'hui je le ressors je relis les explications et je comprends?? par miracle! alors il va me démanger les doigts pour le reprendre ..avec plaisir ! (en vivaldi "spécial"en brun et beige gris qui n'existe plus!

Camus 23.03.2012 - 13:46:

Bonjour j ai un probleme avec les explications du devant droit je n y arrive pas pouvais vous me le decrire plus en profondeur merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 26.03.2012 kl. 09:20:

Bonjour Camus, je vous recommande de vous adresser directement à votre magasin Drops ou à vous inscrire sur le forum DROPS pour y décrire votre question, ce sera plus facile ainsi de vous aider. Merci.

Venstre forstykke:Strik fra siden til midt foran----hvad er midt foran???er det 20 masker fra kant(flæsekant)eller er det midten af antal masker af valgte str??.Ellers TAK for gode opskrifter

DROPS Design 29.02.2012 kl. 11:56:

Det er en forklaring om at du strikker første pind fra retsiden, det bliver da fra siden (under armen) mod midt foran og du strikker 1.p hele vejen ud. God fornøjelse!

DROPS Design NL 18.11.2011 - 10:13:

Hoi Margriet. Wij schrijven standaard het aantal nld in onze patronen. Dus 2 nld zijn altijd 2 nld en geen ribbels - tenzij - anders wordt vermeld in het patroon.

Margriet 17.11.2011 - 16:59:

Aan het eind van de beschrijving van het linkervoorpand staat: Brei 2 nld heen en weer over alle st. Ik heb dit opgevat als 2 ribbels. Pas toen ik de Engelse tekst las begreep ik dat het de bedoeling was om 1 keer heen en terug te breien over alle steken. Maar toen was mijn voorpand al af, veel minder gegolfd dan op de foto...
