Buonasera, quale maglia di vivagno è consigliata per questo modello? Il vivagno a punto legaccio oppure quello per la maglia rasata?

DROPS Design 03.08.2017 kl. 01:20:

Buongiorno Rubina. Può scegliere di lavorare la maglia vivagno come meglio preferisce. Può p.es anche lavorare la maglia vivagno a legaccio nella parte lavorata a legaccio e a grana di riso e lavorare la maglia vivagno per la maglia rasata nella parte lavorata a maglia rasata. Buon lavoro!

Ich beginne gerade, dieses Modell zu stricken, aber beim Durchlesen der deutschen Anleitung fragte ich mich, ob nicht die Abkürzungen für "abnehmen" und "abketten" durcheinander geraten sind. Dort steht zum Beispiel: "Gleichzeitig bei der 1. R. gleichmässig verteilt 6-6-8-8-8-8 M. abk." Ist das richtig?

DROPS Design 02.07.2014 kl. 11:32:

Liebe Saskia, bei den älteren Anleitungen sind diese beiden Begriffe in der Übersetzung manchmal durcheinander geraten, Sie haben natürlich Recht, dass es "abnehmen" heißen muss. Die alten Anleitungen werden nach und nach dahingehend überarbeitet. Ein Indiz, dass "abnehmen" und nicht "abketten" gemeint ist, ist "gleichmäßig verteilt", das ergäbe ja bei "abketten" wenig Sinn...

Bonjour Samira, regardez le tableau des qualités, vous y avez un choix alternatif qui vous permettra de changer les qualités sans toucher le modèle. Bon tricot !

Fantastiskt söt modell! Var lite tveksam först om det skulle vara svårt att få stickningen jämn, men det blev jättebra. Har fått väldigt mycket beröm av arbetskamrater och vänner. Jag gjorde den i jeansblått.

I am really looking forward to making this top--so cute for many figure types!

Jane 25.01.2008 - 15:16:

Elsker detaljen med silkebåndet under barmen, som gør tunika'en meget feminin.

Sylvie 24.01.2008 - 13:14:

J'aime la taille haute, toujours flatteuse.
