Deshalb habe ich nochmal von vorne begonnen, aber dieses Mal mit der Nadelstärke 3 und 3,5. Leider war der Pullover nach einigen Zentimetern Stricken in die Höhe immer noch zu breit, nämlich 57 cm statt 53 cm. Was würden Sie mir nun raten? Und woran liegt das? So große Abweichungen hatte ich noch nie (zumal ich ja die Maschenprobe berücksichtigt habe). Ich könnte mit der Nadelstärke nochmal runtergehen, auf 2,5 und 3. Fortsetzung folgt...

Sara 01.01.2019 - 23:10:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team! Ich stricke den Pullover mit Merino Extra Fine und habe enorme Probleme mit den Maßen. Um die Maschenprobe einhalten zu können, habe ich die Nadelstärke auf 4 (Bündchen) und 4,5 (Rest des Pullovers) festgelegt. Ich möchte den Pullover gerne in L stricken (270 M). Nachdem ich allerdings die ca. ersten 5 cm in die Höhe gestrickt hatte, zeigte sich, dass der Pullover viel zu breit war, nämlich 64 cm statt 53 cm. Fortsetzung folgt...

Tanya 28.12.2018 - 23:55:

Hi, what is the gauge for the smaller needles? If I had to increase from 4mm to 4.5mm for the larger needles, do I just increase from 3.5mm to 4mm for the smaller needles?

DROPS Design 29.12.2018 kl. 15:43:

Dear Tanya, yes, if you have increased measure for larger needles, you'll do the same for smaller needles. Happy knitting!

Hi, what is the gauge for the smaller needles? If I had to increase from 4mm to 4.5mm for the larger needles, do I just increase from 3.5mm to 4mm for the smaller needles?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 10:03:

Dear Tanya, it looks fine, if you required needles one size higher for stocking stitch, one size larger needles for the rib should work fine. Happy knititng!

Daniele 20.12.2018 - 20:12:

Buongiorno, non mi è chiara la spiegazione seguente per la manica: “Chiudere ora dalla parte destra del lavoro, all’inizio di ogni ferro sul diritto del lavoro, come segue: 24 m per 1 volta [...], 3 m per 2 volte.” Devo chiudere 24 maglie su un solo ferro, corretto? Mi rimangono 24 maglie dalle48 di partenza. Se poi devo diminuirne solo una arrivo a 23, non 17. Dove mi sto perdendo? :-) Grazie in anticipo!

DROPS Design 21.12.2018 kl. 08:24:

Buongiorno Daniele. Chiude 24 maglie 1 volta sola, poi deve chiudere 3 maglie due volte. Lavora 3 ferri senza diminuire e al ferro successivo chiude 1 maglia. In tutto le maglie chiuse sono: 24 + 3x2 + 1 = 31. Aveva 48 maglie. Togliendo le 31 chiuse, rimangono 17 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Van Erum Rita 20.12.2018 - 11:50:

Ik heb deze mooie trui gebreid in puna wol kleur taupe 4 zeer mooi. Kan ik hier een foto plaatsen zou dat graag willen. Heel fijne maar mooie wol om mee te breien.

Daniele 14.12.2018 - 14:46:

Buongiorno, non tornano i conti in merito alle istruzioni per la manica destra "Chiudere per l’arrotondamento della manica da ciascun lato, all’inizio di ogni ferro come segue: 2 m per 2-4-6-7-9-10-12 volte e 1 m per 12-10-8-8-6-6-4 volte = sul ferro rimangono 48 m per tutte le taglie. Il lavoro misura 55-60-60-60-60-60-60 cm". Le chiusure vanno fatte invece sia all'inizio che alla fine di ciascun ferro, corretto?

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 17:14:

Buongiorno Daniele. Le chiusure vanno fatte solo all’inizio di ogni ferro. Per la taglia più piccola chiude: 2 m per due volte da ciascun lato (4 m per parte; 8 in tutto) e poi 1 m per 12 volte da ciascun lato (24 m in tutto). Quindi 80 m - 8 - 24 = 48 m. Analogamente per le altre taglie. Buon lavoro!

Agatha 07.12.2018 - 04:14:

Sorry, I have more questions! When following the chart, I understand that I read it from right to left when working in the round. But when working back and forth, does each row in the diagram count as two rows (RS and WS)? And do the knit stitches change to purl stitches when working the cabling on the WS? Also, once I've worked the number of rows in the chart do we start from the bottom again? Sorry for all the questions!

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 08:05:

Hi Agetha. Each row in the diagram count as individual rows, however they are all shown from the RS. Thus, when working back and forth every row from the WS have to be read backwards. ie: from left to right. Additionally; knit stitches are purled and purled stitches are knit from WS (as you say). This is also explained in the symbol definition. Yes, that's correct: once the diagram has been worked vertically start again from the first row until pattern tells you otherwise. Happy knitting

Agatha 07.12.2018 - 02:41:

Also, if we had to increase/decrease the needle size to get the correct gauge with the 4mm needles do we need to do the same with the 3.5mm needles? Or do we use 3.5mm needles regardless?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 07:57:

Hi Agatha, If you need to decrease the needle size to get the right knitting tension, this will also be necessary for the size 3.5 mm needles. Happy knitting!

Agatha 07.12.2018 - 02:18:

Hi, I'm confused about the different parts of the pattern. What exactly is the difference between the body piece and the front and back pieces?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 07:59:

Hi Afgatha, The body is worked in the round (so both back and front pieces) as far as the armholes. When you have cast off stitches for the armholes you will then work the front and back pieces separately working back and forth to finished length. Happy knitting!
