In der deutschen Fassung wäre es hilfreich, bei den Erklärungen zum Digramm bei „1Umschlag“ zu ergänzen mit „zwischen zwei Maschen“, so wie in der englischen und französischen Fassung...

Hei. Princess dora. Holder på med m1: Skal jeg strikke 2rette før første kast etter å ha strikket 6 m sammen og 2rette etter siste kast før jeg strikker 6 m sammen?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 14:27:

Hei Heidi. Omgangen med fellinger og kast strikkes slik: 2 masker rett sammen, 2 masker rett sammen, 2 masker rett sammen (= 3 masker felt og 3 masker på pinnen), kast, 1 rett, kast, 1 rett, kast, 1 rett, kast, 1 rett, kast, 1 rett, kast (6 masker økt og 14 masker på pinnen), 2 masker rett sammen, 2 masker rett sammen, 2 masker rett sammen (3 masker felt og 17 masker på pinnen). Maskeantallet er det samme som da du startet. Du strikker altså kast med en gang du har felt den 3 masken, og du strikker 2 masker rett sammen med en gang etter siste kast. God fornøyesle.

Anne Grenersen 03.06.2018 - 09:42:

Hei, jeg forsøker å strikke denne kjolen, (3-6 mnd) og er en erfaren strikker. Det går greit når jeg strikker mønster 1 første gang, antall masker og mønster stemmer. Men når mønster 1 skal strikkes for andre gang for p få rett høyde, er det teknisk umulig å få de 2x3 m rett sammen til å ligge over hverandre, noe de ifølge bildet skal. Kast/hull forskyves nødvendigvis også. Hva gjør jeg feil?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:24:

Hej Anne, husk at du vil få 2m rett sammen 6 gange efter hinanden, imellem de 6 omslag som har 1 ret imellem hver omslag. Sæt gerne et mærke imellem hver rapport, så du er sikker på at du strikker alle 17 masker i M.1 rapporten inden du starter forfra. God fornøjelse!

Janne 03.05.2018 - 21:36:

Hej strikker str 3/4 kan det passe at der er 45 m og så 135 m der makkerer siderne? Hilsen Janne

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 13:44:

Hej, Janne, ja det stemmer, så har du 90 masker på forstykket og 90 masker på bagstykket. God fornøjelse!

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren! Das Modell ist wirklich süss, und auch die Beschreibung sehr einfach. Aber bei der Rundpasse, wo ich hinten die Knopfleiste links und rechts stricken muss, komm ich einfach nicht weiter. Gibt es hier eine detailliertere Anleitung. Darüber wäre ich sehr froh, denn momentan ruht die Arbeit, würd sie aber schon am Mittwoch schenken wollen. Besten Dank Sonja Neyer

DROPS Design 03.12.2014 kl. 15:44:

Sie haben ja zuerst in Runden gestrickt. An der rückwärtigen Mitte schlagen Sie nun, statt weiter in Runden zu stricken, für die eine Seite der Knopfleiste 4 neue M an (siehe auch bei den Videoanleitungen "Seitlich neue M anschlagen") und stricken dann in Hin- und Rück-R weiter, diese 4 M kommen dann also unter den anderen M zu liegen, die Leiste besteht ja aus zwei sich überlappenden Teilen. Diese neu angeschlagenen M und die 4 M am R-Ende, d.h. die sich überlappenden M, stricken Sie kraus re.

Hej! Rigtig flot kjole. Måtte dog lave halsen større, da den var alt for lille..

Caroline 09.02.2014 - 19:09:

Fant ut av det! Strikka en rett etter siste kastet, i stede for å gå rett på 2 rett sammen!

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 00:12:

Flott :)

Caroline 08.02.2014 - 10:47:

Tror jeg har gjort det slik, men sitter alltid med en maske for mye når jeg er ferdig med mønsteret.. Har tella over flere ganger og jeg har 187, men skal prøve en gang til ;) Takk for svar :)

Caroline 01.02.2014 - 10:55:

Strikker 6-9 mnd :) Lurer på om jeg gjør noe galt med kasta?

DROPS Design 06.02.2014 kl. 00:30:

Hej Caroline, vad er det som ikke fungerer? Du ska pass på att när du strikker kast, så ska det vara en maske mellan. 5.p i M.1 strikkes tex: 2 rett sammen 3 ggr, kast, 1 ret, kast, 1 ret, kast, 1 ret osv. På neste p strikker du kasten som masker.
