Hallo Kann ich diesen Pullover auch ohne rollkragen stricken? Könnten Sie mir erklären wie ich dann beginnen kann? Danke für die süße Anleitung Maria

DROPS Design 19.07.2017 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Maria, wir können leider nicht jede unserer Anleitung nach jedem Geschmack anpassen, lassen Sie sich von ähnlichen Modellen inspirieren, Ihr DROPS Laden wird Ihnen auch gerne helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg har strikket vrangborden på denne genseren og så skal det felles ned x antall masker.Genseren ble ikke fin .Vrangborden ble for vidt syntes jeg. Er dette riktig da.

DROPS Design 29.04.2015 kl. 14:45:

Hei Tone. Det var synd. Mönstret skulle vaere korrekt. Det er svaert for os at vurdere paa afstand hvad der kunne vaere gaaet galt. Om muligt kan du tage dit arbejde med til den butik hvor du har köbt garnet, saa kan de kigge paa dit arbejde.

Kari 13.03.2015 - 07:48:

Finner ikke igjen fargene i fargekartet på Alpaca, er det utgåtte farger nå?

DROPS Design 13.03.2015 kl. 15:38:

Hej Kari. Alle fargene staar paa fargekartet.

Johan 14.11.2014 - 05:55:

Så gullig tröja! Men jag är osäker på hur delningen i nacken skall göras. Ska 3 nya maskor läggas upp i var sida efter delningen till knapp- och knapphålskant eller bara på den högra sidan? Hur många knapphål skall göras, 2 eller 3? Tack!

DROPS Design 25.11.2014 kl. 12:27:

Hej Johan, du delar till mitt bak för sprund så här: Sticka fram till mitt bak, lägg upp 3 nya m (= höger knappkant), vänd, sticka vidare fram och tillbaka med 3 rätstickade kantm i varje side. Du stickar 2 knapphål. Lycka till!

Pernille 29.10.2014 - 12:11:

Hei! Jeg og en venninne har forsøkt oss på å strikke denne genseren i str 2 år. Vi er begge relativt erfarne strikkere og pleier å være omtrent på korrekt strikkefasthet, men på denne genseren er vi begge ca 6 masker over. Dette vil si at vi minst må bruke pinnenr 3 evt 3,5 istedetfor 2,5 som er oppgitt. Er dere sikre på at det er 2,5 som er riktig? På magebåndet på garnet står det 2,5-3,5 så jeg ville trodd det naturlige var str 3.

DROPS Design 29.10.2014 kl. 15:37:

Hej Pernille, for at få 26 m på 10 cm i DROPS Alpaca så vil jeg tro at du kun skal bruge pinde nr 2½ eller 3 medmindre du strikker meget stramt. Du er nødt til at lave en strikkeprøve.

Anne Marie Foss Hansen 28.10.2014 - 13:07:

Babydrops nr. 17-15. Mønster til denne opskrift kommer ikke med ud når man printer. Er det noget I kan rette? venlig hilsen Anne Marie Foss Hansen

DROPS Design 29.10.2014 kl. 15:07:

Hej Anne Marie, Det er vigtigt at du skriver opskriften ud via knappen til højre for billedet inde på selve opskriften. Her står der "Skriv ud: Opskrift" så får du alt med. God fornøjelse!

Selam 01.01.2014 - 21:36:

Hi how many stitches should remain after M1 before the split size 12/18 months?

DROPS Design 02.01.2014 kl. 09:48:

Dear Selam, you divide work for split when piece measures 30 cm in size 12/18 months, ie M1 is not finished yet, you continue then M1 back and forth with dec as before. Happy knitting!

Erika 01.09.2013 - 09:55:

Så söt ska nog göra den i andra färger men detta blir nästa projekt

DROPS Design 14.06.2011 - 08:56:

Nei, det stemmer. Det skal felles.

Ragnhild 11.06.2011 - 22:43: www.ragnhilda.blogsp ...

Som Anita Mjelland skriv: Eg forstår heller ikkje kvifor ein skal FELLA av rett etter vrangborda (på bolen). Det vanlege er jo å auka. Er dette ein skrivefeil?
