Når jeg skal felle på høyre side av erme står det jeg skal felle 24 m men 14 skal jeg ta 2 og 2 Sm. Skal jeg først felle 10 m og så 14 2 og 2 Sm eller disse 14 m 2 og to Sm etter felling av 10 m. Eller skal de felles innimellom de 24 m. Spesielt fellingene er vanskelig å forstå .

DROPS Design 20.08.2019 kl. 12:08:

Hei Inger Johanne. De skal felles innimellom de 24 maskene. Du kan felle av de 2 første maskene som vanlig, så strikker du de 2 neste maskene sammen (= 1 maske) før du feller av denne masken som vanlig, fell 1 maske som vanlig, strikk 2 masker sammen (= 1 maske) og fell av denne masken som vanlig. Og slik fortsetter du til du har felt av 24 masker. God Fornøyelse!

Trine Næraa-Nicolajsen 17.08.2019 - 15:41:

Jeg har problemer med halsen. Jf. opskriften skal jeg tage masker op og derefter strikke 4 omgange retstrik (dvs. 4 x en omgang ret og en omgang vrang. Derefter 8 cm rib og 2 omgange retstrik. Buk halskanten dobbelt og sy den på indersiden. Men hvis jeg gør det, så er de 4 omgang retstrik synlige på forsiden af trøjen. Og hvis jeg kikker på billedet, så er der ingen retstrik ved halskanten! Samtidig ser det ud som om halskraven er syet på forsiden! Hjælp behøves.

Inger Johanne Bjerkholt 23.07.2019 - 11:26:

Forstår ikke avfellingen på forstykket. . Må bli forklart litt mer enkelt

DROPS Design 24.07.2019 kl. 07:42:

Hei Inger Johanne, De midterste maskene er felt av til hals samtidig som du feller de andre maskene jevnt fordelt over samme raden - jevnt på begge sider av halsen. Håper dette hjelper og god fornøyelse!

Anneke 04.06.2019 - 00:33:

Het gaat over de kop van de mouw. Na 13 cm moet je 1x 24 st afkanten, waarvan tegelijkertijd 14 van deze 24 st samenbreien voor ze worden afgekant worden. Je kunt geen 14 st van 24 st samenbreien.

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 21:39:

Dag Anneke,

Je breit 14 van de 24 steken samen, dus 7 x 2 steken samenbreien.

Celine 28.05.2019 - 09:54:

Merci pour ce complément d'explication, c'est plus clair comme cela pour moi !!! Bien cordialement,

Céline 27.05.2019 - 17:58:

Bonjour, merci pour ce très joli modèle. Pour le dos, en taille XXL vous indiquez "168 m. Continuer en allers retours sur l'aiguille circulaire. Rabattre pour les emmanchures tous les rangs en début de rang de chaque côté : 3 fois 2 m et 4 fois 1 m 148 m." Or, en rabattant en début de rang cela ne fait que 10 mailles rabattues (3*2+1*4) ??? faut-il rabattre plus, si oui où ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 28.05.2019 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Céline, vous rabattez les mailles de l'emmanchure au début de chaque rang de chaque côté = en début de rang sur l'endroit + en début de rang sur l'envers, vous allez ainsi rabattre 3 x 2 m (= 6 m x 2 côtés = 12 m), et 4 x 1 m (= 4 m x 2 côtés = 8 m), vous aviez 168 m - (12 +8 m rabattues pour les emmanchures) = 148 m. Bon tricot!

Karen 26.04.2019 - 06:44:

Hi, I a man new to following this graph type pattern. I have just started, and I have the band complete at 240 stitches. When I read your pattern for size 13/14 -L I am having trouble understanding the stitch count. It says m2 for the first 12' no problems, but m3m4m3m1 is 34 stitches not 44, do I do one of these then do m3m4'm3 for 44 stitches ? I don't understand how the count is working... please help.

DROPS Design 26.04.2019 kl. 09:26:

Dear Karen, in size S work the 240 sts as follows: M.2 (= 4 sts) on the first 12 sts (= repeat 3 times the 4 sts in M.2), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.1 on the next 44 sts (= repeat M.1 a total of 11 times,), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.2 on the next 24 sts (= repeat the 4 sts in M.2 a total of 6 times), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.1 on the next 44 sts (as previously), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.4 (= 10 sts), M.3 (= 8 sts), M.2 on the last 12 sts (= repeat the 4 sts in M.2 a total of 3 times) = 12+8+10+8+44+8+10+8+24+8+10+8+44+8+10+8+12= 240 sts. Happy knitting!

Eliana 11.04.2019 - 10:34:

Please could you clarify how you get the chest measurement for the medium size? Is it before or after washing? I am knitting size M, my tension is correct but the jumper measures only 45cm across when laid flat and not stretched. Thank you.

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 10:07:

Dear Eliana, measurements are taken flat when piece is finished - if your swatch is matching, make sure to keep the same tension even when working ribbing and cables to avoid tightening. Happy knitting!

Eveline 01.04.2019 - 12:16:

Nog even: als ik dus de mouw wil afkanten (24st.) aan het begin van de naald, dan kom ik ergens midden in de mouw uit, klopt dit?

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 21:15:

Dag Eveline,

Ja, je kant aan beide kanten af vanaf midden onder de mouw en midden boven op de mouw houd je steken op de naald die je verder breit tot de hals, zodat de kabel over de hele lengte van de mouw doorloopt tot de hals (zoals te zien is op de foto).

Eveline 31.03.2019 - 17:44:

Hallo ik ben bezig met de mouw van dit patroon en ben nu bijna aan het eind. In het patroon staat na 13 cm dat ik aan het begin van iedere naald aan de goede kant van het werk, 1 keer 24 steken moet minderen? Maar dan stopt mijn werk middenin de mouw. Klopt dit of mist er iets in het patroon? En daarna nog 2 keer 3 steken aan het begin van iedere naald of alleen weer aan de rechterkant van het werk? Help? :-)

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 21:29:

Dag Eveline,

Nog even ter aanvulling op je vraag over de mouw (Ik had je vraag in eerste instantie verkeerd begrepen.): Je komt inderdaad ergens in het midden uit bij het afkanten van de mouw. Op deze manier wordt de hals gevormd, die aan de voorkant lager is dan aan de achterkant.
