Ich habe ein Problem mit der Kapuze. In der Anleitung steht über M1/M2 2 und 2 zusammenstricken. Was bedeutet das genau???? Auf dem Bild sieht es aus als wäre die Kapuze in links gestrickt, aber der Raport ist ja in rechts.

DROPS Design 28.12.2012 kl. 16:32:

Liebe Birgit, die Kapuze ist glatt re gestrickt, mit der linken Seite nach außen (wie beim Rest der Jacke auch). Der Rapport ist rechts, denn der zeigt nur den Zopf und der Zopf ist rechts gestrickt. 2 und 2 zusammen ist etwas unglücklich aus dem Norwegischen übersetzt und bedeutet: fortlaufend 2 M zusammenstricken. Wir korrigieren die Übersetzung nun.

Birgit 19.12.2012 - 15:41:

Was heißt denn bitte in der Beschreibung die äußeren 26 M. gegen die Mitte auf einen Markierungsfaden legen????

DROPS Design 21.12.2012 kl. 11:21:

Liebe Brigit, das ist ein Übersetzungsfehler, für den wir uns entschuldigen. Es ist ein Hilfsfaden oder eine Hilfsnadel gemeint, die Maschen werden stillgelegt. Wir korrigieren die Anleitung gleich.

Birgit Trede 10.12.2012 - 15:42:

In der Anleitung steht mit 2 Fäden gestrickt. Heißt das, ich muss die Fäden doppelt nehmen für die ganze Jacke?

DROPS Design 11.12.2012 kl. 12:47:

Hallo Birgit, ja, die ganze Jacke wird mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt. Viel Spass beim Stricken!

Lea Werner 31.07.2012 - 19:40:

Hartelijk bedankt, ik kan nu weer verder

L. Werner 28.07.2012 - 21:28:

In het patroon staat: Kant vervolgens af voor hals langs middenvoor totaal 8 steken. maar de voorbies en patroon moeten doorlopen op de capuchon. maar de voorbies is 8 steken. hoe doe ik dat dan.

DROPS Design 30.07.2012 kl. 11:39:

Je hebt eerst de 26 st middenvoor op een draad gezet (de voorbies st + de volgende 18 st = kabel). Vervolgens kant je de st af voor de schouder. Bij het breien van de capuchon zet je de 26 st van beide voorpanden terug op de nld en neemt daarbij ook st op langs de rand. Dan breit de voorbies + de kabel lekker door.

Claudia 30.01.2012 - 18:29:

Hola, estoy realizando este suéter, ya tengo los delanteros, pero la trenza hace que se encojan de la orilla, que puedo hacer para evitarlo?

DROPS Design 11.07.2011 - 08:45:

Vr = vrangen

Karianne 09.07.2011 - 22:09:

Etter at vrangborden på bakstykket er strikket, står det at man skal strikke glattsrikk med vr ut til ferdig mål. Hva menes med vr???

Gro 25.05.2010 - 13:05:

Ok, ja. Jeg tror likevel jeg kommer til å strikke rund. Liker iallfall bedre å strikke vrange masker enn å sy masse :)

DROPS Design 25.05.2010 - 11:04:

Nei,fordi da strikker du bare vrang fra retten og rett fra vrangen. Om du skal gjøre det akuratt lik når du strikker rund må du strikke alle pinner vrang.
