Buongiorno. Sto lavorando una taglia S. Nel dietro, alla fine, quando devo lavorare 3 volte la maglia con un dritto, un gettato e un dritto, nel ferro di ritorno come lavoro i gettati? Ritorti così da non formare un buco sul lavoro oppure normali per formare un buco? Grazie

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 12:16:

Buongiorno Monica. Può lavorarlo ritorto. E' il primo ferro del bordo ondulato a maglia rasata, uguale al bordo che lavorerà anche sul davanti. Buon lavoro!

Brigitte 29.07.2014 - 22:36:

Ich komme leider garnicht mit der Anleitung klar. Zuviele "Gleichzeitig" die ich nicht einordnen kann, wo kann ich Hilfe zu dem Modell bekommen?

DROPS Design 31.07.2014 kl. 11:55:

Liebe Brigitte, am besten wenden Sie sich an das Geschäft, in dem Sie die Wolle gekauft haben. Das geht normalerweise auch telefonisch. Oder Sie versuchen, sich die einzelnen Schritte untereinander auf einem Zettel zu notieren, das hilft manchmal auch, um einen besseren Überblick zu bekommen, was man alles zu beachten hat.

Ik wil graag weten, hoe ik voor de ronding netjes steken bij maak.Er staat 1 steek aan het einde van de naald en herhaal dat elke naald, Dit betekent dan 2 steken, 1 naald heen en 1 naald terug.Hoe krijg je dit netjes. 2e vraag: Er staat in het patroon en dan om de ??nld. 5 keer elke 4e naald. Maar in welke naald????

Je kan een nieuwe st opzetten op verschillende manieren. Kijk eventueel bij onze instructievideo's onder Opzetten. Kies de manier je het leukste en mooiste vindt. Je moet opzetten aan het middenvoor eerst in elke nld, daarna om de nld (= elke 2e nld = brei 1 nld zonder op te zetten, 1 met opzetten, etc) en uiteindelijk in elke 4e nld (3 nld breien zonder opzetten, 1 nld met opzetten etc).

Da Muster ist angepasst. Danke für den Tipp.

Monika Krueger 16.11.2010 - 13:36:

In der deutschen Anleitung für die Rüschenkante des Boleros fehlen die ersten 5 Reihen in kraus rechts bevor man den 2. Faden abschneiden soll. Ansonsten wurde es ein sehr schickes Bolero!

2. pinnen er retten og da øker du på slutten (mot mitten, 1. pinnen er fra vrangen). Deretter øker du i på hver pinne (i slutten og i starten av 2./3. pinne). Etterpå økes de igjen på hver 2. pinne i slutten av retten.

Liva 19.05.2010 - 16:48:
