Lisa Ogilvie 26.02.2017 - 19:00:

In the shawl pattern section, it states to bo 3 sts at the beginning of each row 30 times and then states it will leave you with 3 sts, if you start with 183 sts, as the pattern states, 3 x 30 = 90sts, 90sts from 183 leaves alot more than 3 sts on the needle-is this a misprint, should it read to bo off 3 sts each row until 3 sts left on the needle?

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 11:04:

Dear Mrs Ogilvie, you have to cast off 3 sts at the beg of every row, ie both from RS and from WS: 90 x 3 sts x 2 sides = 180 sts will be cast off in total, 90 on each side. Happy knitting!

Categorie:drops gehaakte muts en gebreide omslagdoek nr 109-5. Bij het patroon van de omslagdoek is vermeld dat na het opzetten van 183steken direct na eerste naald 30x3steken op de breinaald geminderd moet worden! Mijn vraag is of de 3steken aan 1kant geminderd moeten worden, of dat de 3steken over de hele naald geminderd moeten worden! Graag zie ik uw antwoord tegemoet, Vriendelijke groet, Mevr boijmans.

DROPS Design 17.12.2013 kl. 14:45:

Hoi José. Je moet 3 st afkanten aan het begin van elke nld in totaal 30 keer = 3 st over op de nld.

Stéphanie Gosselin 10.03.2011 - 15:39:

Merci beaucoup pour ces précisions!

Drops Design France 10.03.2011 - 09:21:

Bonjour Stéphanie, le châle se tricote au point de riz = sur 2 rangs. Vous diminuez 3 m au début du rang 1, 3 m au début du rang 2, 30 fois au total pour chaque rang 1 et 2 soit un total de 180 m diminuées (3 m x 30 fois de chaque côté).

Stéphanie Gosselin 10.03.2011 - 05:33:

Selon mes calculs, je n'arrive pas à 3m avec ces diminutions: 'diminuer 3 m en début de rang, 30 fois tous les rangs = 3 m' Est-ce qu'on ne devrait pas plutôt diminuer 60 fois? Ou plutôt en début et fin de rang? Merci à l'avance!

Nina 17.01.2010 - 20:57:

Jeg skjønner heller ikke hvordan jeg skal felle 3m på hver pinne i perlestrikk (sjalet)- det blir i hvert fall ikke pent......Noen tips ?

Drops Design 01.12.2008 - 10:12:

Er det luen eller sjal du snakker om?

Marte 01.12.2008 - 00:06:

Skjønner ikke helt hvordan fellingen skal foregå, finner ikke ut av det, siden det er annenver rett og vrang maske.

Fed hue. På samme tid hippie og moderne..
