Jag förstår fortfarande inte. Ska man öka i slutet på mönstervarvet eller i slutet på nästa aviga varv - då blir ju arbetet assymetriskt?!

DROPS Design 11.05.2017 kl. 14:14:

Du lägger upp de nya maskorna precis som det står i beskrivningen, dvs. de nya maskorna läggs alltid upp på 2 på varandra följande varv.

Eva W 10.05.2017 - 10:24:

Första Ökningen på fjärde varvet ska göras i slutet på rätsidan dvs på varvet som stickas avigt, nästa ökning ska göras på det aviga mönstervarvet? Men det står ju att ökningen alltid görs på rätsidan? Förstår inte. Om ökningen ska göras i slutet på nästa räta varv som stickas avigt kan det ju inte bli riktigt?!

DROPS Design 10.05.2017 kl. 14:19:

Hej! Ökningstipset gäller endast ökningarna i sidan. Då man lägger upp nya maskor bör detta göras i slutet på ett varv, så att man inte behöver klippa tråden.

Katja 29.07.2015 - 19:06:

Die Aufnahmen sollen jeweils links bzw. rechts der Markierungsfäden gemacht werden. Erst jeweils links, 3cm später jeweils rechts. Mich wundert das: Wird dann das Strickstück nicht asymmetrisch? Müsste man nicht erst an den Vorder- und dann an den Rückenteilen aufnehmen oder umgekehrt? Oder habe ich einen Denkfehler? Vielen Dank!

Barbara 02.02.2013 - 21:19:

Ich bin verwirrt, die Videoanleitung zum Brombeermuster ist anders als die Musterbeschreibung zum Modell hier. Ausserdem steht nirgends, ob Randmaschen gestrickt werden müssen. Bitte um Antwort, danke!

DROPS Design 07.02.2013 kl. 09:06:

Hallo Barbara, der Unterschied ist nur, wie die 3 M li zusammengestrickt werden, das können Sie auf beide Arten machen. die Randmasche wird immer re gestrickt.

Claudia 28.10.2012 - 22:26:

Wie geht denn das Blendenmuster? Ich finde das nirgends beschrieben!

DROPS Design 29.10.2012 kl. 16:12:

Hallo Claudia, vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Leider wurde das beim Übersetzen vergessen. Die Blendenmaschen sind kraus rechts, ich habe es in der Anleitung ergänzt

Tres joli,

Karin 05.02.2010 - 13:17:

Kjempesød bolero, flott mønster.

Annette 26.01.2010 - 21:33:

Vildt sød, min datter vil plage mig, hvis hun ser den...

Hélène 15.01.2010 - 23:14:

Trop mignon !

Charlotte 14.01.2010 - 11:41:

Rigt søde vest, håber snart at den ligges på siden så man kan komme igang med at strikke den
