Bonjour, le bas de mon ouvrage roule juste après les 2 rangs au point de riz et ceci sue les 2 devants et le dos. Que faire ? Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 09:49:

Bonjour Patricia, quand la veste est terminée, lavez-la (suivez attentivement les consignes de l'étiquette + les généralités ici) et faites la sécher bien à plat en ajoutant des épingles si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

M.Vanassen 18.04.2017 - 20:55:

Wat betekenen al die cijfers op het telpatroon ? Gaat het om het aantal steken of zijn het centimeters ?

DROPS Design 18.04.2017 kl. 21:21:

Dat zijn inderdaad de afmetinen in centimeters van het werkstuk. Bijvoorbeeld onderaan staat er 59-62-enzovoort. 59 is de breedte voor maat S, 62 voor maat M, enzovoort.

Cathy Van Beek 02.03.2017 - 11:50:

Waarom staat er achter alle stekentellingen "tel:....." en dan exact dezelfde aantal steken als daarvoor? Bijvoorbeeld (aantal steken is fictief): Minder 2x3, 3x3 st = 12-14-16 (tel:12-14-16)st. O, ik zie nu dat dat in de webversie niet staat, maar als je er een PDF van maakt en opslaat, staat het achter alle getallen.....

Cathy Van Beek 25.02.2017 - 11:53:

Hoe voorkom ik dat de draad gaat draaien tijdens het breien? Ik maak het vest met Big Delight.

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 15:04:

Hoi Cathy. Dat kan je op meerdere manier oplossen. Sommige gebruiken een draadhouder (er zijn tegenwoordig veel leuke en grappige keramiek houders te koop). Maar je kan ook het bolletje in een zakje of bakje leggen en bijna sluiten zodat de draad net uit komt en een beetje strak blijft

Bernadette 10.10.2015 - 18:28:

Hello there, just love the pattern and would love to knit it. Just not quite sure which size I should use i.e. XL or XXL. I wear a German size 44/46. Could you please advise? Thanks so much. Kind regards. Bernadette

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 09:26:

Dear Bernadette, please click here to know how to read measurement chart and find the matching size. Happy knitting!

Grien 12.09.2014 - 12:53:

Bonjour, pour les manches il est écrit pour la taille S : "augmenter 1 m de chaque côté 2 fois tous les 20 cm" je pense qu'il y a une erreur. n'est-ce pas "tous les 2cm" plutôt?

DROPS Design 12.09.2014 kl. 13:25:

Bonjour Mme Grien, en taille S, on augmente bien 2 fois tous les 20 cm (soit 1 x à 11 cm et 1 x à 31 cm), on avait 56 m + 4 = 60 m. Bon tricot!

Marìa Cecilia 12.05.2013 - 23:46:

Necesito saber cómo se teje la explicación que dice: "desl los 12 pts centrales hacia el delantero central a un hilo para el cuello" Favor de indicar cómo hacer este paso. Atte. María Cecilia

DROPS Design 13.05.2013 kl. 07:24:

Hola Maria Cecillia. En los patrones más antiguos un hilo sustituía a un gancho aux ( para dejar los pts en espera). En cuanto a los puntos se refiere a los 12 puntos desde el borde central hacia dentro (los 12 primeros de la vuelta; los del lado opuesto a la sisa)

IRENE CHRISTODOULOU 26.03.2012 - 17:30:

There is no diagram in this pattern.

DROPS Design 27.03.2012 kl. 12:51:

We have added the diagram.

Grete Albeck 01.03.2012 - 17:58:

Kanten på trøjen ruller, hvis man laver 2 pinde glat og 2 pinde perlestrik, som der står. Jeg foreslår 4 pinde perlestrik som kant.

Drops Design 09.11.2009 - 17:47:

Nannette, an edge stitch is a stitch that you can knit the way you like it, e.g. like in garter, the stitch are not worked into the pattern.
