Dobrý večer, jsem začátečník.Skončila jsem u pletení sedla, dokončila jsem ujímání a jsem v části 25 cm. Nevím si rady s průkrčníkem a začátkem lemu průkrčníku. Prosím o vysvětlení. Děkuji

Anja 03.05.2017 - 17:07:

Gehe ich recht in der Annahme, daß die beim Halsausschnitt abgeketteten Maschen ("Gleichzeitig nach 23-25-28 (32-35) cm auf beiden Seiten vorne gegen den Hals abk.: 1 x 10-11-13 (14-15) M und danach 2 x 1 M") bei der Halskante ("auf beiden Seiten je 12 bis 18 M. aufnehmen = ca. 82 bis 120 M.") wieder aufgenommen werden?

DROPS Design 04.05.2017 kl. 10:59:

Liebe Anja, bei der Halskante werden 12 bis 18 M (je nach der Größe) in den 1x 10-15M + 2 x 1 M auf beiden Seiten aufgenommen, es waren 58- 84 M übrig nach Rundpasse = 82-120 M insgesamt für die Halskante. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annelies Rennert 25.04.2017 - 11:02:

Hallo, habe beim Verbinden mit den Ärmeln Probleme. Die Verbindungsmaschen ziehen sich so sehr auseinander, das es schlecht aussieht. Edmund ja auch alles auf die Rundstricknadel. Haben sie eine Idee wie ich es machen kann. Danke

DROPS Design 25.04.2017 kl. 11:48:

Liebe Frau Rennert, für die ersten Reihen können Sie mit einem 2. Rundnadel stricken, dann wird es nach und nach einfacher mit nur 1 Rundnadel zu stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annelies Rennert 03.04.2017 - 10:00:

Hallo, leider wieder eine Frage. Wieviel Reihen muss ich stricken bis ich wieder die zwei Maschen vorlegen muss damit der Zopf entsteht. Danke. A. Rennert

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 11:19:

Liebe Frau Rennert, nach dem Zopf stricken Sie noch 3 Reihe im Diagram M.1 und M.2 dann stricken Sie Diagram von Anfang an, dh 4 Reihen vor den nächsten Zopf, dh insgesamt 7 Reihe zwischen Zöpfe. Viel spaß beim stricken!

Annelies Rennert 02.04.2017 - 10:56:

Hallo, wieder mal eine Frage. Würde an diese Jacke gerne eine Kapuze anstricken wie verfahre ich hier. Bitte um eine Info. Mfg. A. Rennert

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 10:47:

Liebe Frau Rennert, leider können wir nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder Geschmack anpassen, aber gerne finden Sie Inspiration von ähnlichen Modellen mit Kapuzen. Ihr DROPS Laden kann auch Ihnen mal damit helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annelies Rennert 30.03.2017 - 14:47:

Hallo,, ich benötige wieder mal Hilfe.habe die Jacke angefangen. Wie verstehe ich nach 3 cm 1 Reihe rechts auf rechts stricken? Dann noch diese vielen Maschen abnehmen, wofür? Danke Annelies

DROPS Design 30.03.2017 kl. 15:59:

Liebe Frau Rennert, Sie sollen jetzt 1 Hinreihe (= von der Vorderseite) mit rechten M. stricken, gleizeitig Maschen abnehmen, damit die Breite korrekt wird. Viel Spaß mit stricken!

Giulia 11.11.2016 - 12:38:

Al termine dello sprone come fa il lavoro a misurare circa 27-29-33 (37-40) cm che dovrebbe essere la misura finale con il collo? E se così fosse non occorrerebbe un bottone in più? Forse un errore? Grazie.

DROPS Design 11.11.2016 kl. 13:00:

Buongiorno Giulia, chiediamo una verifica delle misure alla sezione design. Grazie per la segnalazione, Buon lavoro!

Sirkka Räsänen 16.08.2016 - 10:32:

Eikö ensimmäinen kerros nurjalla neulota oikein eikä nurin?

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 16:15:

Hei! Tämän ohjeen ensimmäinen krs neulotaan nurin.

Birgitta Paavilainen 18.04.2016 - 09:29:

Teen Baby drops 18-4 jakkua koko 1/3 neuletiheys pitäisi olla 20sx26krs mulla on 23sx32krs, pitääkö tehdä jotain muutoksia että tulee sopiva vai purkaa ja vaihtaa isommat puikot?

DROPS Design 19.04.2016 kl. 13:36:

Hei! Ennen kuin aloitat uuden neuletyön sinun kannattaa aina neuloa mallitilkku ja tarkistaa neuletiheys! Vaihda paksumpiin puikkoihin, koska muuten neuleestasi voi tulla liian pieni.

Ulla 20.12.2015 - 08:42:

"Total wiederholen" ist falsch, es sollte sein ""total stricken"
