Efter 11 cm ska man sticka mönster 2 och öka. Sen ska man sticka mönster 3 och minska. Verkar konstigt, är det rätt?

DROPS Design 22.08.2019 kl. 09:21:

Hej. Det ökas och minskas så för att mönstret ska stämma. Lycka till!

Paolo S 18.01.2019 - 22:33:

Buongiorno, sto terminando le maniche e non mi è chiaro il passaggio di diminuzioni. Sto filano la taglia XL, quindi dovrei diminuire così: 4m 1°f; 4m 2°f; 0m 3°f; 0m 4°f; 2m 5°f; 2m 6°f; 0m 7°f; 0m 8°f; 1m 9°f; 1m 10°f; 0m 11°f; 0m 12°f; 1m 13°f; 1m 14°f. Se così fosse però accumulo 9 centimetri e raggiungo quindi i 55. Quindi non devo fare le altre diminuzioni previste o sbaglio le precedenti? Grazie

DROPS Design 19.01.2019 kl. 06:43:

Buongiorno Paolo. Per la taglia XL le diminuzioni sono le seguenti: 4 m 1°f; 4 m 2°f; 2 m 3°f; 2 m 4°f; 1 m 5°f; 1 m 6°f; 1 m 7°f; 1 m 8°f. Prosegue poi con le altre diminuzioni. Buon lavoro!

Cecile 06.02.2018 - 10:41:

Merci pour la rapidité de votre réponse. Pour être sûre de bien comprendre, on décide donc que le premier rang tricoté après le montage des mailles est un rang envers. Donc je monte mes mailles et je commence à tricoter en mailles envers sur le premier rang?

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 11:32:

Bonjour Cécile, tout à fait, et, après ce 1er rang envers sur l'envers, vous tricotez le rang suivant sur l'endroit en côtes et en suivant les diagrammes comme indiqué pour la taille choisie. Bon tricot!

Cecile 06.02.2018 - 07:41:

Bonjour, Pour débuter le devant le patron demande de tricoter un rang envers sur l'envers. Dois je tricoter directement ce rang après le montage des mailles? Pour moi le premier rang après le montage est un rang endroit normalement. Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Cécile, dans ce modèle, le 1er rang se tricote sur l'envers (= tout à l'envers) et c'est le 2ème rang qui sera sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Pia Møller Hansen 14.10.2017 - 09:45:

Når der står slå 93 m op ( inkl 1 kant m i hver side ) er den kant m så i de 93 eller skal jeg slå 95 op

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 14:11:

Hei Pia. Når det står: Legg opp 93 masker (inkl 1 kantmaske i hver side), så er de 2 kantmaskene inkludert i antall oppleggsmasker. Altså, 93 masker tilsammen. God Fornøyelse!

Claudia Benson 28.12.2015 - 14:23:

Hi - what is edge stitch? Is it simply a slip stitch at the beginning of a row? Thanks.

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 14:48:

Dear Mrs Benson, the edge sts are the first and the last st used for seam allowance, there are different way to knit the edge sts: slip first st at beg of every row, work the edge st in stocking st or in garter st... Happy knitting!

Mustriseletus on endiselt väga segane !!! ...Kui on kootud 65-68-71-73-76-78 cm, koo 2 pr kokku mõlemal eesoleval palmikul ja kahanda 1 s. mõlemal välimisel pahempidisel triibul palmikute kõrval =10 kahandatud silmust. !!! Kas ei peaks olema et pean 2kokku kuduma kõik palmiku simused?? nii saan aru ingliskeelsest õpetusest.. Ja sama on ka DROPS 116-38

DROPS Design 17.12.2015 kl. 20:42:

Tänan tähelepanu juhtimast, sõnastust on uuendatud!

Evelin Saaremägi 07.12.2015 - 20:17:

Mustri seletus on natuke segane *...koo esimesel real skeemi M.2 mustri asemel skeemi M.1 muster – koos allesjäänud silmustega nagu enne.* Ingliskeelsest (läti) sain aru ja hätta ei jäänud. Ma arvan et seda tuleks korrigeerida. Tänud

Vertongen Diane 17.10.2015 - 14:46:

Kan iemand me helpen met het ontcijferen van deze zin: Brei bij een hoogte van 71 cm 2 st recht samen over alle st van de 2 kabels middenvoor en minder 1 st in ieder av-deel aan de buitenkant van de 2 kabels = 10 st geminderd. als ik dat wil toepassen kom ik niet aan een mindering van 10 st... maar aan minder mindering....

DROPS Design 23.10.2015 kl. 13:33:

Hoi Diane. Je hebt 2 kabels in het midden van het voorpand. Elk kabel bestaat uit 8 recht steken. Je breit deze st 2 aan 2 recht samen (dus 8 st worden 4 st in de twee middelste kabels) en aan buitenkant van de twee kabels heb je 3 av steken, hier minder je 1 st in elke = 10 st minder. Het staat inderdaad wat krom in het patroon, dus dat heb ik aangepast.

Marianne 16.10.2015 - 14:40:

Bedankt voor dit antwoord. Ik had 75 steken + 2 kantsteken,dat ging dus fout. Ik kan nu weer verder,gr.Marianne
