Kun 13sta jalanpäällissilmukan ennen ja jälkeen aletaan kaventamaan, poistuu siis 4silmukkaa pper kierros. Neulon pienimmällä silmukkamäärällä, eli ennen kavennuksia oli 36 silmukkaa. Jos joka 2.krs kavennan 4 Silmukkaa, viisi kertaa, miten lopputulos voisi olla 26 silmukkaa?

DROPS Design 24.11.2015 kl. 16:19:

Päällisen molemmin puolin kavennetaan jokaisella kavennuskerroksella 1 silmukka, eli kerroksella kapenee yht. 2 silmukkaa. Kun kavennuskerroksia tehdään yht. 5, kapenee työstä yht. 10 silmukkaa ja jäljelle jää 26 silmukkaa.

Mishka Kalinina 22.11.2015 - 13:08:

I am making these using two needles because I am not good at circular needle technique! I do not understand how to do 'HEEL DECREASES'. After completing ''Work row until 5-5-6 (6-6) sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece'' I will have 4 sts left on the right needle after turning the piece. What do I do with this left over 4 stitches?

DROPS Design 23.11.2015 kl. 11:20:

Dear Mrs Kalinina, leave the 4 sts on needle, turn and work next row from WS, and repeat dec for heel as stated, until all sts on each side are all worked. See also video below. Happy knitting!

Er det feil i oppskriften? Står at mønster rapporten skal gjentas 6-6-7(7-7), men så står det at man skal felle etter 3 ganger med mønster rapporten.

DROPS Design 27.05.2015 kl. 12:09:

Hej Nina, Du gentager rapporten 6-6-7-7-7 gange rund på omgangen. De andre mål gælder for højden. God fornøjelse!

Hallo, wie oft muss M4 am Schaft gestrickt werden? Nehme an, mehr als 1x. Vielen Dank für die Auskunft und liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 15.05.2014 kl. 16:56:

Die Info fehlte leider in der Anleitung, das wurde nun behoben. Sie stricken M4 3x. Viel Spaß dabei!

Hei. Mihin se merkkilanka laitetaan? Laitetaanko se vain yhteen silmukkaan vai useampaan? T.kutomaan opetteleva.:)

DROPS Design 16.09.2013 kl. 12:23:

Hei! Merkkilanka kiinnitetään joko työn keskimmäiseen silmukkaan tai kahden keskimmäisen silmukan väliin (riippuu siitä, onko silmukkaluku pariton vai parillinen).

Minun versioni. (My version.)

Hej Liina, de vita rutor stickas som räta maskor, (räta på rätsidan, aviga på avigsidan). Flätan sticka du vid att sätta 2 maskor på hjälp sticka framför arbetet, sticka 2 räta maskor, sedan de 2 räta maskorna från hjälpstickan. Se annars våra instruktionsvideos:-)

Liina 18.03.2010 - 12:34:

Hej,Hur stickar man M4.Kan ni förklara på ett annan tack

DROPS Design 09.03.2010 - 10:17:

Hej, du börjar med resåren - inte med tån. Detta mönster skall du sticka med strumpstickor (4 + 1) inte två stickor.

Liina 28.02.2010 - 11:25:

Ska man börja med tån?Kan man sticka denna sockan med vanliga 2 stickor?
