Hvor mange cm skal man strikke før man begynner på mønsteret på jakka, det pleier å stå i oppskrifta, nen mangler i denne.

DROPS Design 17.08.2018 kl. 11:00:

Hei Signe. Du begynner å strikke mønster på bærestykke, etter at ermer og bol er satt sammen på pinnen - da måler arbeidet ca 16-18-21 (24-27) cm. Du strikker 1-1-3 (7-10) p med lys rosa – SAMTIDIG på 1.p felles det 6-6-4 (4-6) m jevnt fordelt. Så strikkes og felles det etter mønster M.1. God fornøyelse.

Signe Råheim 12.08.2018 - 18:40:

Hvor mange cm skal man strikke før man begynner på mønsteret. Det står ingenting om det i den norske oppskrifta.

Betty Kjønnø 03.03.2018 - 18:29:

Hei,jeg skjønner ikke helt første fellingen.Skal jeg strikke 10 masker og felle en,eller skal jeg strikke 10 masker og felle 2?

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 08:39:

Hei Betty. For å kunne hjelpe deg, trenger vi litt mer informasjon :) Hvilken størrelse strikker du og hvilken første felling mener du, er det på erm, bol eller bærestykke? mvh Drops design

Brett 11.05.2016 - 07:15:

Kan je ook averechts breien met 2 draden (kleuren)op de Noorse manier of moet je dan continental breien ?

DROPS Design 11.05.2016 kl. 16:56:

Hoi Brett. Ja, dat kan prima. Helaas hebben wij volgens mij (nog) niet een video van

Uding 18.10.2015 - 19:26:

Vielen dank für Ihre schnelle Antwort Grüße aus Oberhausen Silvia Uding

Uding 14.10.2015 - 08:32:

Diesen abschnitt verstehe ich nicht: und bei jeder 5.-5.-5.(6.-6.) R. total 7-8-9 (10-12) Mal = 50-54-58 (62-68) M.

DROPS Design 16.10.2015 kl. 11:49:

Es bedeutet, dass Sie die Ärmelzunahmen in jeder 5. bzw. 6. Rd (je nach Größe) ingesamt so oft wie für Ihre gewünschte Größe arbeiten. D.h. Sie stricken 4 bzw. 5 Rd, dann nehmen Sie in der nächsten Rd an der unteren Ärmelmitte zu, dann stricken Sie wieder 4 bzw. 5 Rd und nehmen in der nächsten Rd zu usw., bis Sie so oft wie genannt zugenommen haben.

Julie 17.10.2013 - 02:57:

Je voudrait savoir quand il dise 21 cm en hauteur total ca veux tu dire que je compte la cote avec merci de vouloir me répondre

DROPS Design 17.10.2013 kl. 09:12:

Bonjour Julie, c'est exact, les 21 cm de hauteur totale sont mesurés à partir du rang de montage, côtes comprises. Bon tricot!

Sally 24.01.2013 - 23:03:

Please can you tell me what 42 p/v = ca 12cm. Which way do you srart the pattern from the arrow. to the left of the right.

DROPS Design 25.01.2013 kl. 09:16:

Dear Sally, it means 42 rows = approx 12 cm. You start diagram where there is the arrow, towards the left side on RS rows, from left to the right on WS rows. Happy knitting!

Drops Design 29.04.2009 - 08:31:

Hej! Du kan prøve at dampe strikketøjet forsigtigt, så vi det rette sig ud. Vore forhandlere kan altid give dig tips og gode råd om hvor lang tråden skal være bagpå og hvordan du kan holde garnet. God fornøjelse!

Lilli Marie Larsen 28.04.2009 - 19:46:

Jeg kan ikke få mønstre til at blive pæn, det er som om strikke tøjet ikke kan rettes ud. Jeg syndes at jeg lader meget garn ligge bag ved maskerne. Jeg har læst at det er nemmere at strikke rundt, også klippe det op bagefter. Kan det være en mulighed.Jeg ved godt at jeg ikke holder garnet helt præcis, men jeg ken ikke stritte med både pege- og langefinger. Hvis jeg løfter langefinger kan jeg ikke holde på pinden. Håber på hjælp Venlig Hilsen Lilli Marie Larsen
