DROPS Design 31.03.2017 kl. 15:12:

Bonjour Karine, vous pouvez tout à fait tricoter les manches sur aiguille circulaire, soit sur une petite aiguille de 40 cm, soit sur une de 80 cm en suivant la technique du magic loop. Bon tricot!

Karine 30.03.2017 - 22:39:

Kan je de mouwen ook met een rondbreinaald breien? Hoe lang mag die dan zijn?

DROPS Design 26.10.2012 kl. 13:52:

Je kan proberen met een korte rondbreinaald van 40 cm, of leer de magic-loop techniek, op deze manier kan je deze mouwen op een rondbreinaald van bijv 80 cm breien. Kijk onder onze instructievideo's

Marga 27.09.2012 - 10:42:

Bij rok staat: brei 1 naald averecht en ga verder in tricotsteek. Waarom moet je beginnen met averecht?

DROPS Design 27.09.2012 kl. 13:42:

Om een mooie rand te maken. Deze ga je later de rand in haken.

I just posted a picture of my dress made in large size. My squares were small so I made it as if it was for the XXL size and it's fine. for the skirt I increased every fourth round instead every other round. Hope this is helpful to anybody.

Onderaan het patroon vindt u een maattekening. De afmetingen staan hier in cm per maat, en u kunt hier vergelijken met uw eigen afmetingen. Dit is standaard op alle patronen behalve veel van de toebehoren - maar dan staan de afmetingen vaak in het patroon zelf. Succes.

Marja 07.12.2011 - 19:16:

Waar vind ik de maatvoering van het patroon, nu weet ik niet welke maat ik moet maken...

Fernanda 08.06.2011 - 10:23: www.fernandatries.bl ...

I am working on this dress right now and I am loving the result!
