Hei. Fin genser og fin oppskrift. Men jeg får huller når jeg strikker opphøying (frem og tilbake) i nakken. Noen tips for å forminske disse hullene?

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 06:15:

Hei Heidi, Du må stramme tråden hver gang du snur på forhøyningen for å forhindre hull. God fornøyelse!

Siv Janne 07.04.2017 - 16:31:

Eg fann ut av det til slutt. Hadde heile tida 102 m, men på eit tidspunkt hadde eg gløymt å strikke 3 vr som gjorde at avslutningen vart feil. Takk for rask respons i alle fall 😊

Siv Janne 06.04.2017 - 20:53:

På halsen står det at ein skal strikke 3r/3vr på 102 m. Det betyr at dei 3 fyrste og 3 siste m (altso 6 m etter kvarandre) blir r. Stemmer dette eller må eg auke med 3 m til så det blir 105 m,slik at det vert 3r/3vr heile vegen rundt?

DROPS Design 07.04.2017 kl. 08:53:

Hei Siv Janne, Det burde gå opp med 3r/3vr fordi 102 delt på 6 er 17. Kanskje du ikke har riktig antall masker? Mvh, Deirdre.

Hanne Dueholm 15.05.2016 - 10:27:

Hej! Jeg vil gerne strikke denne her som trøje med knapper foran. Kan man klippe den op til sidst? Hvis ja, skal jeg så beregne flere masker der, hvor der skal klippe? Ps: Jeg har prøvet at strikke en trøje, hvor jeg til sidst skulle klippe den op. På forhån tak.

DROPS Design 17.05.2016 kl. 12:07:

Hej Hanne. Ja, jeg ville saette 5-6 ekstra masker (klippemasker) op midt for. God fornöjelse med den.

Raquel 13.01.2016 - 13:35:

No acabo de entender las instrucciones para el cuello se hace la fila hasta el centro de la espalda pero luego pone empezar en el centro del delantero y el cuello me queda en una manga. gracias.

DROPS Design 20.01.2016 kl. 12:55:

Hola Raquel, he repasado el patrón y efectivamente había un error. Debería comenzar: "Ahora trabajar filas acortadas de ida y vta en ag desde el centro de la espalda con gris oscuro. Trabajar la fila hasta el centro DEL DELANTERO, insertar un MP". Lo corregimos enseguida y lamentamos las molestias. Gracias por escribirnos.

Maria 15.12.2015 - 10:19:

Can I change yarn type from Drops Alpaca to Drops Nepal or Lima? Will it be the same if I will knit with Nepal/Lima in one thread? Thanx

DROPS Design 15.12.2015 kl. 15:24:

Dear Maria, 2 strands yarn group A = 1 strand yarn group C so that you can use Nepal instead of 2 strands Alpaca - read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Kristen 11.01.2015 - 22:08:

Hi there! I'm making this in a medium, and I'm just getting to the neck. It says to start short rows halfway through the front of the yoke. If I do it that way the rows go over the shoulder, was this a misprint? Are the short rows supposed to be at the back? If so, where should I start them. Thank you!

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 10:27:

Dear Kristen, short rows start first from mid back: work to mid front, place a marker and K 47-60 sts (see size), (ie past marker mid back), then turn and P18-24 sts from WS, turn and K 27-36 sts, turn and P 36-48 sts from WS, turn and K 45-60 sts, turn and work 54-72 sts, turn, K all sts to marker (mid back) and continue with needle size 4 mm in rib. Happy knitting!

Hermie 21.09.2014 - 18:01:

Kan ik deze trui ook met baby merino breien? Dan maar met 1 draadje?

DROPS Design 22.09.2014 kl. 14:41:

Hoi Hermie. Je kan prima veranderen door met 2 draden Baby Merino te breien. Met één draad zou je de stekenverhouding moeten veranderen - en het complete patroon opnieuw moeten berekenen. Vergeet niet om altijd een proeflapje te breien en de stekenverhouding aan te houden.

Bitten Svendsen 10.02.2014 - 23:34:

Hei. På vrangborden skal man strikke med 2 tråder....Er det kun vrangborden eller er det hele genseren?

DROPS Design 10.02.2014 kl. 23:59:

Hei Bitten, hele genseren strikkes med 2 tråder :)

Annet 13.11.2013 - 07:20:

Hallo, ik vind deze trui prachtig en wil het graag gaan breien. Nu ben ik niet zo groot en wil een kortere versie maken. Kan ik beginnen met 144 st. na M1 minderen naar 120 st. en daarna weer meerderen naar 136 st.? De lengte tot aan armsgat wil ik dan houden op ong. 45 cm. Graag jullie advies hierover!

DROPS Design 13.11.2013 kl. 15:28:

Hoi Annet. Ik kan je helaas niet helpen met individuele aanpassingen op de patronen. Maar kijk altijd goed naar de stekenverhouding, bereken goed je stekenaantallen, minderingen/meerderingen enzovoort. Je kan ook altijd vragen voor hulp bij je verkooppunt.
