Bonjour, Pour le devant, au moment de la séparation, je ne comprends pas vraiment. Je dois tricoter sur les 16 mailles centrales, 6 m au pt pousse+4 m à rabattre+6 m au pt mousse? Pouvez-vous m'expliquer svp? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 08:45:

Bonjour Amélie, on divise le devant en 2 parties égales sans rabattre de mailles, et on continue chaque côté séparément avec 8 m point mousse côté encolure. Bon tricot!

Amelie 20.03.2017 - 22:26:

Bonjour, Je suis au dos au niveau des 74 cm de hauteur totale, j'ai 74 m (68 m+3 augmentations d'1 m de chaleur cote), rabattre les 24 m centr.et au rang suivant je diminue 1 m (diminution lisière ou après le point mousse???). J'obtiens 74m-24m rabattues=50m/2=25m. Pour une épaule je suis à 25m-1 dim+1 augm (augm des 68 cm de hauteur totale) = 25m et non 26 m comme indiqué sur les explications. Qu'est ce que j'ai raté ? Merci.

DROPS Design 21.03.2017 kl. 09:16:

Bonjour Amélie, on doit augmenter 5 x tous les 2 cm, vous aurez donc 78 m quand toutes les augmentations seront finies - 24 m pour l'encolure - 1 m rabattue côté encolure x 2 côtés = 78-24-2=52/2 épaules = 26 m. Bon tricot!

Chasseloup 13.03.2017 - 20:19:

Bonjour, J'en suis au 18 cm du dos pour l'augmentation, à combien de mailles du bord? Et d'ordre général, pour toutes les augmentations et diminutions je les réalise à combien de maille du bord? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 14.03.2017 kl. 09:41:

Bonjour Mme Chasseloup, à 18 cm pour le dos, on va monter 1 m de chaque côté - voir vidéo ci-dessous. Ce sont ici les mailles lisières pour les 18 cm de fentes côtés. Voir "Diminutions (emmanchures et encolure)" + "Augmentations (épaules)" pour savoir où et comment augmenter/diminuer. Bon tricot!

Hi! Let me start by saying I love this pattern! However, there isn't a total yardage listed in the pattern notes. it would be helpful to know how much yard is needed per size.

DROPS Design 05.06.2015 kl. 15:44:

Jeg er meget skuffet over garnet Lin. Det er efter vask blevet helt mat. Den blanke struktur er helt forsvundet

Jette Zangger 25.03.2014 - 08:12:

Minder silke alpaca om det nye garn air der kommer i uge 31

DROPS Design 25.03.2014 kl. 17:11:

Hej Jette. Nej, det er helt anderledes. Den er mere som BabyAlpaca Silk (fra gruppe A) i strukturen. Du kan eventuelt pröve at strikke den med dobbelt traad

Jette Zangger 19.03.2014 - 10:33:

Er det alpaca baby silk eller er det silke alpaca der er brugt til denne opskrift, og farven gråbleg hvor finder jeg den

DROPS Design 19.03.2014 kl. 10:59:

Hej Jette. Dette garn var Silke-Alpaca og findes desvaerre ikke mere. Klik her, saa kan du se hvilke alternativer du kan bruge.

Der Pullunder ist sehr schön geworden. Ging schnell und einfach. Die Wolle ist allerdings recht schwer.

Sharon Vogt 19.02.2008 - 05:47:

Can you please provide this pattern in larger sizes

Nicky 29.01.2008 - 21:45:

Wauw, die wil ik zeker maken!
