Hei, etter å ha sett etter rettelser på deres sider uten å finne at det er notert vil jeg gjerne vite hva som er korrekt i oppskriften: BabyDROP 18-9. På forstykket står det her at det skal være 58 m på pinnen, så skal en felle i beg av hver pinne 3 gngr som på bakstykket. Deretter skal en dele forstykket i to og skal da ha 28 m på hvert stykke. Dette stemmer ikke. Det blir da evt 26 m på hvert forstykke? Mvh Farmor Tonje

DROPS Design 29.01.2014 kl. 10:40:

Hei Tonje. Mönstret er korrekt. Du har delt arbejdet og har til höyre forstk: m på venstre side (sett på p fra retten) + 2 m på høyre side av merket midt foran. Dvs, 29+2 m. Naar du har fellet til ermehull: 1 m 3 ganger = 28 m paa venstre forstk

Tejal 16.09.2013 - 10:45:

I am really confused about the following instruction for the left front piece of the dress "pick up 4 sts on the back of the first 4 sts towards mid front on right front piece." How does one pick up stitches on the back of other stitches in moss stitch? Does back refer to the wrong side of the piece? Are we increasing in the row or working perpendicular to the piece? Is this for the button band? Thanks in advance for your help!!

DROPS Design 16.09.2013 kl. 11:19:

Dear Mrs Tejal, on front piece, you will pick up 4 sts behind the 4 sts on left needle so that both front bands overlap - you will see how to do this in the video below, time code 0.52 to 1.25 approx. Happy knitting!

Anna 01.08.2013 - 19:34:

Jeg har strikket ca fem cm av kjolen på rundpinne 4.5, 60 cm, i str 6/9 mnd, og den krøller seg veldig oppover. Burde jeg rekke opp?

DROPS Design 22.08.2013 kl. 15:16:

Hei Anna. Din kant vil krölle her i begyndelsen, men vil rette sig ud naar du har heklet din kant til sidst. Du behöver ikke at rekke opp :-)

HobbySusa 22.02.2012 - 22:30:

Måtte bytte til pinne nr. 4, da den ble alt for vid med pinne 4,5!!

Anna 20.02.2012 - 13:00:

Als ik dit jurkje van katoen wil maken, wat voor katoen kan ik dan het beste kopen? Welke dikte en op welke naald breien/haken?

DROPS Design 20.02.2012 kl. 16:34:

Hoi Anna. Klik op link bij: "Zie garenalternatieven voor: DROPS MerinoExtraFine". Hier staat o.a. Muskat of de Cotton Light. U moet de stekenverhouding van het patroon aanhouden - ook met een ander garen. Dus 20 st x 26 in tricotst met nld 4.5 of de juiste nld voor deze verhouding = 10 x 10. Succes

DROPS Design 14.09.2011 - 15:44:

Om du holder strikkefastehen på 20 m = 10 cm blir kjolen nederst 49 cm bred som det vises i målskissen. Etter fellingene til livet blir det 32 cm.

Kathrine 14.09.2011 - 13:22:

Hei. Er nettopp ferdig med denne i str. 2 aar. Jeg skjoenner ikke helt hva jeg har gjort feil, for den er kjempevid. Jeg fikk den paa meg selv (str. 38-40!)...saa altfor stor for min lille jente. Har lyst aa proeve paa nytt, men usikker paa hvordan jeg boer modifisere den for at den skal passe.

Sigrid 03.06.2010 - 21:19:

Jeg la opp 196 m på rundpinne nr 4,5. Etter 10cm så var den som tidligere sagt; "vid som en rokkering". Begynte på nytt med rundpinne nr 4, og da ble det riktig.

Du plukker opp i bakerste maskeledd fra vrangen.

Monique 28.02.2010 - 20:20:

Venstre forstk: Hvordan gjør jeg dette: "strikk opp 4 m på baksiden av de 4 første m midt foran på høyre forstk"? Tusen takk :-)
