Finalmente ho terminato la tunica grazie a voi ho ricevuto dei complimenti,sono molto soddisfatta del risultato grazie a tutti voi siete molto gentili e disponibili

Annamariacalanna 13.10.2013 - 08:58:

Buongiorno,sto completando le diminuzione -1 però mi è venuto un dubbio.Ogni 10 giri sono compresi anche i giri delle diminuzioni? o oltre? grazie per la pazienza

DROPS Design 13.10.2013 kl. 17:00:

Buongiorno Annamaria, deve diminuire ogni 10 giri, cioè lavora un giro con diminuzioni, 9 giri a m rasata, e sul decimo giro diminuisce, e così via. Ci riscriva se non le è chiaro. Buon lavoro!

Annamaria Calanna 11.10.2013 - 20:38:

Grazie molto per avermi risposto,le diminuzione li devo fare ogni 10 giri? x sette volte grazie mille

DROPS Design 11.10.2013 kl. 20:56:

Buonasera AnnaMaria. Sì, le diminuzioni si ripetono ogni 10 giri, in tutto 7 volte. Terminate le diminuzioni, sui ferri avrà (a seconda della taglia) 128-144-160-176-192-208 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Annamaria 11.10.2013 - 14:55:

Buon pomeriggio sto realizzando questa tunica,sono arrivata nei segna punti per diminuire ai lati non capisco come è il procedimento

DROPS Design 11.10.2013 kl. 16:19:

Buonasera Anna Maria. Dopo aver inserito i 6 segnapunti, diminuisce 1 m sia prima che dopo i segni 3 e 6 (i lati); diminuisce 1 m dopo i segni 1 e 4 e 1 m prima dei segni 2 e 5. Per diminuire prima dei segni, lavora 2 m insieme a dir; per diminuire dopo i segni, passa 1 m dir senza lavorarla, lavora 1 m dir, accavalla la m passata sulla m lavorata. Ad ogni giro vengono così diminuite 8 m. Ci riscriva se trova ancora difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Hikari 16.04.2013 - 17:41:

Bonjour, j'ai une question concernant les diminutions n1 (après 16cm de HT).Dans les explications c'est marqué qu'il faut les répéter ''7 fois tous les 10 tours = je tricote 10 tours sans diminution puis 1 avec'', mais dans les explications au haut de la page c'est marqué ''8 tours par tour = je tricote 8 tours sans puis 1 avec''. Donc quelle explication dois-je suivre? Merci d'avance ..

DROPS Design 16.04.2013 kl. 19:18:

Bonjour Madame Hikari, il y avait une faute de frappe désormais corrigée : on diminue 8 m par tour, et donc vous répétez *1 tour avec diminution, 9 tours sans diminution*. Bon tricot !

Camila 10.06.2010 - 04:18:
