Bonjour, Pour les diminutions du devant du debardeur, il est ecrit « Diminuer côté encolure en début de rang, tous les rangs ». Si c’est en debut de rang, c’est donc forcement tous les 2 rangs? Comment peut-on diminuer tous les rangs en debut de rang sur le meme cote? Merci

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 08:27:

Bonjour Émilie, tout à fait, on va diminuer au début de chaque rang côté encolure, soit tous les 2 rangs, la formulation a été modifiée, merci. Bon tricot!

Tina Madsen 04.06.2018 - 21:37:

Er det ikke en fejl at efter indtagning til ærmegab er der 52 masker tilbage på str.2 er det ikke 42 masker? Hilsen Tina

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 15:30:

Hej Tina, i str 6/9 mdr har du 66 masker, nu lukker du 3 m af i hver side = 60 og tager 1 maske ind i hver side 4 gange = 52 masker tilbage. God fornøjelse!

Elizabeth Kondo 24.04.2018 - 07:28:

Wat betekent: brei volgende 2 steken 2 keer?

Elizabeth Kondo 24.04.2018 - 07:26:

Wat betekend 2 steken elk 2 keer breien?

DROPS Design 28.04.2018 kl. 18:19:

Hallo Elizabeth, Je breit 2 keer in 1 steek en dat herhaal je nog een keer. Dus insteken, omslaan, doorhalen, NIET af laten glijden, dan nog een keer in dezelfde steek breien en wel af laten glijden. Dit doe je ook voor de steek daarna.

Anne Lethaby 11.04.2018 - 05:33:

Dear DROPS: I am currently knitting the front with the cables. I don\'t understand your instructions - you state after the 4 rows garter stitch that you knit a row with increases and then starting with the WS you start the cables with \"MI\" and then the next row (RS) you also do a cable (MI) - so you do a MI in alternate rows - do you then knit 5 more rows before going into the cables again? Pls clarify, Thank you so much

DROPS Design 11.04.2018 kl. 09:55:

Dear Mrs Lethaby, after the first 4 rows in garter st, work next row from RS inc as explained. Then start working in pattern on next row from WS working 1st row in M.1 (but no increase anymore). Then continue in pattern from RS as follows: 1 edge st, P 11-14-17 (21-24), * M.1, P 4 *, repeat from *-* 4 times, M.1, P 11-14-17 (21-24), 1 edge st When working M.1 you will knit the cables on every 6th row. Happy knitting!

Claudia 28.03.2018 - 07:31:

Muss es in der Anleitung für die Socken nicht korrekt heißen: Über den Fussrücken ...M kraus, 1M kraus links, M1, nochmal 1M kraus links, ...M kraus. Die zweite Amgabe für kraus links fehlt oder mischt sich verwirrend mit der Angabe für M1.

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 09:28:

Liebe Claudia, Sie haben Recht, da war etwas unklar vermischt, die Anleitung wurde soeben korrigiert. Weiterhin viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Catherine 18.02.2018 - 13:57:

Bonjour, j'ai un soucis à la fin de la 1ère épaule. ( où se trouve le "col" si on est sur le devant ? ) -Où trouver les 30 à 40 mailles pour le col? sur toutes les mailles du devant + le long du côté intérieur? - On ne parle pas d'explications pour les boutonnières ? -Je ne vois pas d'explications pour les torsades sur les côtés épaules? Merci d'avance pour vos lumières. :)) -

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 10:00:

Bonjour Catherine, les torsades des épaules se font d'elles mêmes quand on met en attente les mailles de l'encolure et que l'on continue chaque épaule séparément en diminuant pour l'encolure. On relève ensuite sur le col 30-40 m le long de l'encolure uniquement (entre les mailles des épaules en attente). On tricote ensuite les 2 épaules séparément en formant les boutonnières sur l'épaule gauche du devant. Bon tricot!

Adelaide Stronk 23.04.2017 - 19:38:

Ich stricke für Größe 12/18 Monate. 1. Problem: Nach 2 Krausrippen, also in der 5. R., erfolgen die Zunahmen, bei einer Maschenzahl von 62 Maschen kann ich (bei 2 Randm und 2x 17 linken Maschen) wenn ich *2re, in 2re in jede der 2 nächsten M 4, 4li* gestrickt habe, nur noch dreimal wiederholen, also insgesamt 4 x ausführen . So erhalte ich tatsächlich die 72 Maschen.

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 10:42:

Liebe Frau Stronk, so stricken Sie und 10 M zunehmen: 1 Randm in Krausrippe, 17 li., * 2 re. in jede der 2 nächsten M., 4 li. *, von *-* 4 Mal wiederholen (= es werden 2 M in jedem *-* zugenommen x 4 Mal = 8 M zugenommen), 2 re. in jede der 2 nächsten R. (= es werden 2 M zugenommen), 17 li. und 1 Randm in Krausrippe = 62 M + 8+2 M zugenommen = 72 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Adelaide Stronk 23.04.2017 - 18:48:

Habe ich mich wegen der Höhe bis zur Abnahme für das Armloch nach der Zeichnung gerichtet. Das wären 31 cm bei Gr. 12/18 Monate. Im Text müsste man nach 18 cm mit der letzten Reihe der 2. Krausrippe mit der Abnahme beginnen. Also über 10 cm zuviel gestrickt, ziemlich ärgerlich....

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 10:45:

Liebe Frau Stronk, die 31 cm in der Zeichnung stehen für die gesamte Höhe, die Armlöcher werden nach 18 cm angefangen (mit 2 Krausrippe, dann Abnehmen = ca 19 cm), dann wird die Arbeit noch währen 12 cm (Armloch) gestrickt: 19 cm bis Armloch + 12 cm bis Schulter = 31 cm. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Heike 04.07.2016 - 09:31:

Hallo liebe Profis, wird das Rückenteil (glatt gestrickt) mit den linken Maschen nach außen oder mit den rechten Masche nach außen angenäht? Danke und viele Grüße Heike.

DROPS Design 06.07.2016 kl. 08:15:

Liebe Heike, ja "Glatt mit der linken Seite nach aussen stricken" beduetet genau das. Viel Spass beim Stricken.
