Ik vind de Drops patronen mooi en makkelijk ,het resultaat is prachtig.

Astrid Richter 31.07.2014 - 12:34:

Ein wunderschöner kleiner Bolero. Aber was bedeutet "rechts auf rechts" oder "rechts auf links" sticken? Danke und Gruß Astrid Richter

DROPS Design 01.08.2014 kl. 09:28:

Liebe Astrid, das bedeutet: "rechts in Hin-R" und "rechts in Rück-R". Es handelt sich noch um eine ältere Übersetzung, sie wird bei Gelegenheit evtl. noch sprachlich überarbeitet. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, kann die angegebene Maschenzahl für Gr. 40 113Maschen stimmen? Ich komme auf 115. mit freundlichen Grüßen Bärbel Voigt

DROPS Design 23.04.2014 kl. 16:22:

Liebe Frau Voigt, bitte beschreiben Sie die Stelle genauer, an denen Sie eine abweichende Maschenzahl haben, ich kann die von Ihnen genannte Zahl nicht finden, außer beim Maschenanschlag...

Pierrette Dubé 13.01.2009 - 02:37:

Je trouve que vous avez de très beaux modèles, j'aimerais bien les expérimenter.

Du strikker over de 34-39-44-50-55-61 m på høyre forst. Hvis du trenger mere hjelp spør i din garnfornettning.

Katrine 27.05.2008 - 00:27:

Jeg visste ikke om jeg kunne bruke denne boksen til å spørre om tips, men jeg prøver=) Jeg har nå strikket bakstykket, og feller til halsen. Men hvordan kan jeg fortsette å strikke? "komme meg til ander siden igjen" på neste pinne? Anyone?

Saija 21.02.2008 - 08:48:

Hei, suomentaisitteko tämän ihanan boleron ohjeen? Kiitos paljon!

Inger Lundberg 28.01.2008 - 15:50:
