Bonjour, pouvez-vous confirmer qu'on commence l'empiècement, à 32cm de hauteur totale pour le dos et devant, pour la taille"M", s'il vous plait. Merci.

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 18:42:

Bonjour Mme Lecomte, je confirme, vous pensez correctement. Bon travail!

Lecomte 03.04.2019 - 08:13:

Bonjour, l'échantillon se fait avec des aiguilles n°5, et on tricote le dos et le devant avec des aiguilles n°6, et les manches avec des aiguilles n°4,5? Merci de me répondre.

DROPS Design 03.04.2019 kl. 09:45:

Bonjour Mme Lecomte, les manches et le dos/devant se tricotent bien avec des aiguilles 5, la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Ich habe den Pulli für meine Tochter gestrickt und wir waren beide begeistert! Allerdings musste ich einige cm beim Rumpfteill verlängern. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Anleitung!

Gerdi 01.01.2019 - 09:20:

Bitte ,kann ich den Pullover vom Halsausschnitt beginnen ?LG Gerdi

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:23:

Liebe Gerdi, die Anleitung sollen Sie aber anpassen, denn die Anleitung ist hier für ein Stricken von unten nach oben. Das Farbmuster kann auch etwas unterschiedlich aussehen wenn Sie es von oben nach unten stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Renate 10.12.2018 - 07:57:

Ich habe den Pullover für meinen Mann gestrickt, er ist sehr, sehr schön geworden. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Anleitung!

Susanne Diester 13.10.2018 - 10:13:

Ich stricke diesen Norweger für meine Tochter. Sie ist aber 180 cm groß und trägt Größe S . Wenn ich das Rumpf - Teil nach 31 cm beende , ist dieses Teil mit Sicherheit zu kurz . Nun meine Frage , soll ich länger stricken ?

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 08:16:

Liebe Frau Diester, vergleichen Sie die Maßnahmen in der Skizze mit einem ähnlichen Pullover sie gerne hat, und damit können Sie die unterschiedlichen Maßnahmen anpassen. Gerne wird Ihnen Ihr DROPS Laden - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail - weiterhelfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Når på arb begynner mønsterstrikk, jeg er nå ferdig med bolen og armene men jeg finner ikke ut når mønsteret begynner .

Bettina 20.03.2017 - 10:02:

Er lidt ny ud i det her ☺ Skal det forstås sådan, når forbruget er 500, så er det lig med 10 nøgler a 50 gr? Pft ☺

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 12:16:

Hej Bettina. Ja, det er rigtigt.

Jaana Rydland 14.02.2017 - 11:43:

Onko tämä villapaita kovin lyhyt ? Reilut 30 cm vyötäröltä kainaloon vaikuttaa muihin ohjeisiin verrattuna aika vähälle. Kudoin itse n 40 cm ennen kainaloita, ja vielä olisi mahdollisuus kutoa pituutta lisää.

DROPS Design 31.05.2017 kl. 13:47:

Kyseinen pusero on melko lyhyt malli, mutta voit tietysti lisätä siihen pituutta.

Tone Fløystaf 27.06.2016 - 13:20:

Lurer på lengden på armen. Jeg strikker str M. I oppskriften står det at jeg skal strikke 45 cm. Samtidig som det i str S skal strikker 46 cm. Hva er riktig ?

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 16:21:

Hej Tone. Det er korrekt som der staar i mönstret. Aermet er kortere i de store str, da skulder/rundfelling er laengere.
