Hello, Does the "dec all P4 to P3" instruction mean that the first 2 stitches of the P4 in the rib are P2 together? Thank you for the clarification.

DROPS Design 20.03.2019 kl. 18:19:

Dear Deb, it means exactly that. If you need to decrease more than once, it looksbetter, if you alternately decrease at the beginning and the end of teh P stitches, but id you only need to so it once, then P2TOG the first two stitches in every P4. Happy Knitting!

Hej, for at være på den sikre side, så vil jeg gerne vide om "2 r sm" betyder at to retmasker tages ind? Mvh Sonja

DROPS Design 13.03.2017 kl. 12:03:

Hej Sonja. Nej, det betyder at du strikker 2 m ret sammen = 1 m taget ind.

Sonja 11.03.2017 - 11:00:

Hej, lige for at være helt sikker, betyder; 2 r sm = 2 retmasker samles? Altså her tages der ind? Tak, for hjælpen. Og jeg ser frem til at strikke denne poncho. Det er første gang med så meget mønster. Så tungen lige i munden 😊 Vh Sonja

I had scrap yarn in my stash that wasn't the weight/gauge of Alaska, it was worsted weight. I needed to double the design because it wasn't long enough & reversed the colors when I did the pattern a 2nd time. It looks amazing & fits well. Now that my scrap yarn stash is gone I'll do another in Alaska.

Beim Material-Beschrieb scheint mir die Nr. für Beige falsch zu sein. Gemäss Farbkarte für Alaska ist Beige = Nr. 55, die angegebene Nr. 49 wäre hellbraun. Welche der beiden wäre nun gemeint bei diesem Strickmuster?

Kornelia Köhler 28.10.2014 - 09:21:

Was bedeutet in eine Strickmuster 76 p/v = ca. 40 cm Danke schön mal im voraus. Mfg K. Köhler

DROPS Design 28.10.2014 kl. 20:16:

76 R entsprechen ca. 40 cm in der Höhe. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Maes Willy 06.01.2014 - 18:40:

De gebreide patroon is getorst reeds twee maal moeten uit trekken hoe kan dat op gelost worden

DROPS Design 08.01.2014 kl. 10:53:

Hoi Willy. Ik begrijp niet hoe je de patronen in elkaar hebben gedraaid (getorst?). Misschien brei je iets verkeerd bij het breien van de kleuren in het patroon. Kijk eventueel hier hoe je met meerdere kleuren breit:

Hallo, ich habe diesen Norweger-Poncho in 3 Tagen gestrickt. Die Anleitung war super leicht und es hat Spaß gemacht. Sehr schöne angenehme Wolle.

Rikke 25.01.2013 - 10:01:

Hej! Hvornår skal jeg skifte/ bruge rundpind 6, 40 cm?? Det kan jeg ikke lige se i opskriften:-) Mange strikkehilsner Rikke

DROPS Design 25.01.2013 kl. 14:01:

Det gör du automatisk naar din rundpind 80 cm er blevet for lang til at have alle m paa pinden. Det er oppe omkring halsen

Carol Stocker 30.10.2012 - 00:30:

The sizes s, m, l. etc are given but could you be more specific in cm. or inches to the finished sizes . thankyou

DROPS Design 13.11.2012 kl. 15:58:

Dear Mrs Stocker, you will find at the very bottom of the pattern the measurement chart in cm, and under the US-english pattern, you will find also finished measurements under size. Happy Knitting !
