MARTTIN Carmen 04.09.2017 - 13:21:

Bonjour, j'ai bien compris la diminution de la première ligne de M2. Par contre je ne comprends pas comment avec 1maille on peut en avoir 3 avec seulement un jeté. Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 13:45:

Bonjour Mme Marttin, au 1er rang de M2, il reste 2 m: on passe la maille glissée par-dessus les 2 m tricotées, au 2ème rang, on tricote 1 m, 1 jeté, 1 m. La vidéo ci-dessous montre comment réaliser ce motif. Bon tricot!

Martin 28.12.2015 - 00:05:

J'aimerais obtenir explications avec aiguilles droites. Merci

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 14:27:

Bonjour Mme Martin, ce modèle se tricote en allers retours sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles - voir aussi ici. Bon tricot!

May 23.07.2013 - 13:36:

I do not understand what does it mean "After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 there are .........on row. Would you please show me the detail? Thank you very much.

DROPS Design 23.07.2013 kl. 14:48:

Dear May, on last row in M.1, you will dec 4 sts and inc 2 sts in each repeat of M.1B + inc 1 st in M.1A + inc 1 st in M.1B so that you will have less sts than when started M.1. Happy knitting!

Eva 03.07.2013 - 18:44:

Ich habe als Garnalternative Muskat genommen. Aber dann stimmen die Maschenzahlen überhaupt nicht mehr. Jacke wird viiiel zu groß. Kann das sein?

DROPS Design 04.07.2013 kl. 16:01:

Liebe Eva, Sie müssen gut darauf achten, dass Sie auch mit einer Garnalternative die angegebene Maschenprobe haben.

Stans 18.01.2013 - 20:30:

Help I started with 277 st and didn't get 237 st . I can't figure out what I did wrong! Ended up with 192 st. Love the pattern

Drops Design 05.04.2011 - 08:23:

Du følger bare opskriften, efter M.1 har du taget et antal masker ind, og igen når arb måler 29 cm tager du yderligere et antal masker ind og det er først her du er kommet til taljen. God fornøjelse!

Birgitte 04.04.2011 - 19:51:

Strikkefastheden i opskriften siger 2 masker pr cm. Når jeg slå 277 m op til ryg/forstykke i str. M, så får jeg en talje vidde på 135 cm. Hvad gør jeg forkert ?

DROPS Deutsch 01.03.2011 - 09:20:

Der Zopf ist in M2 erklärt (ist eigentlich kein Zopf).

Stine* 28.02.2011 - 06:30:

Ich vermisse den Zopf in der Anleitung. Wie wird der gestrickt ????

DROPS Deutsch 04.02.2010 - 12:05:

Die Umschläge werden so abgestrickt dass das Muster weiterläuft. In M2 werden 2 M. gestrickt (nicht zusammen) auf der Rückseite wird dann zwischen diesen 2 M. einen Umschlag gemacht.
