Buongiorno, per le uova di Pasqua, la mia domanda è la seguente: come faccio ad avviare 9 maglie sui 4 ferri a doppia punta che poi dovrò utilizzare ??? Intendo dire: devo avviare 9 maglie su 1 solo ferro a doppia punta e poi aggiungere gli altri 3 ferri ad ogni giro ? Grazie mille e complimenti per tutte le bellissime idee proposte!

Buongiorno Silvana, deve avviare 9 m e distribuirle sui f a doppia punta e poi iniziare in tondo: può utilizzare il gioco a 4 o 5 ferri, come preferisce. Ci riscriva se ha altri dubbi. Buon lavoro!!

Ich denke, dass in der 8. Reihe die Zunahme falsch beschrieben ist.

Liebe Angelika, ich habe mit dem Original verglichen und die Übersetzung ist korrekt. Wo vermuten Sie denn den Fehler?

Pääsiäismunan lisäykset 8. krs:lla eivät stemmaa. Mitenkähän se on tarkoitettu tehdä?

DROPS Design 21.01.2013 kl. 16:38:

Hei! En löydä mitään virhettä. Työssä on 27 s ja 8. krs:lla lisätään yht. 10 s = 37 s. Myös mallikertojen toisto täsmää s-luvun kanssa.

Im Rahmen eines Knitalongs (Drops-O-KAL 2010) hab ich ganz viele gestrickt.So konnte ich viele Reste verwerten und hatte einen wundervollen Osterstraus. Danke für das Design, clarice39

LS. u praat over naalden in dit patroon beter zou U over "toeren" kunnen spreken omdat je met 4 naalden moet breien. toeren is dan een duidelijkere term. mijn moeder is 83 jaar en heeft al heel veel brei patronen gelezen in haar leven. trouwens met veel plezier maakt ze leuke eitjes voor iedereen. maar vond dit wel een opmerking waard. vr. gr.
