Skal hjelpe min datter å strikke denne kjøreposen, men er usikker nå det står KANTMASKE. Betyr det en maske som taes løs av eller er det rillemaske ( rett på begge sider )? Hilsen Strikkemammaen.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 13:51:

Hei Inger. 1 kantmaske betyr bare at den/de ytterste masken(e) i hver side strikkes i riller (rett på alle pinner) slik at det blir en liten kant oppover. Denne masken teller med i maskeantallet. Du skal senere montere innenfor denne kantmasken. God fornøyelse begge to

Bodil Svendsen 18.12.2018 - 13:45:

Jeg er nået til at tage ind til halsen på forstykket, der står tag 4 m ind over yderste snoning og senere 7 m ind over M 3. Hvordan gør jeg det 🤔🤔🤔, håber du kan hjælpe mig.

DROPS Design 19.12.2018 kl. 07:27:

Hei Bodil. Når det flettes økes det masker før fletten, som felles når fletten er ferdig. Du må derfor felle masker over den ytterste fletten før du setter maskene på en tråd til hals. Du kan gjøre dette ved å strikke 2 og 2 masker rett/vrang sammen. På samme måte skal du felle over de resterende flettene før du feller av arbeidet. God fornøyelse

Priya 10.11.2018 - 13:47:

Hi I am a novice at knotting. I just wanted to clarify I'm reading the pattern right. After the garter for about 4 cm, P a row on wrong side and start on RS with M1- K/P alternately 72 except the 2 edges stitches, on ws remain true to stitches at front, row 3 as in row 1, row 5 becomes P/K alternately and also row 7. Also is it possible to share a close up image of how the patterns look both at the back and front, or an image of segments athat are M1, M2,M3. Thanks in advance. P

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 09:21:

Dear Mrs Pryia, you will work as follows: 1 st in garter st, repeat M.1 and finish with 1 st in garter st. This video below shows how to knit M.1 = double seed stitch in height. Happy knitting!

R Young 02.11.2018 - 12:37:

How many yarn I need for my baby boy aged 12? i am going for the Drops baby Merino Fine yarn. Thanks

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 13:01:

Dear Mrs Young, you will find materials required under the header, in size 12/18 months you will need 550 g DROPS Merino Extra Fine (= yarn group B) - since DROPS Baby Merino belongs to yarn group A it won't be an alternative here. Try our converter to find out other alternatives. Happy knitting!

Stella 09.10.2018 - 18:28:

Hallo eine Frage auf der Vorderseite bin ich jetzt an dem Punkt wo ich über dem Zopf gegen die Mitte 4 M. abnehmen ( 2M. über dem Zopf und je 1M. Auf beiden Seiten des Zopfes) wie ist das mit gegen die Mitte gemeint soll ich bei M3 über den grossen Zopf(12M) abnehmen??? Danke für die Hilfe

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 08:03:

Liebe Stella, mit "gegen die Mitte" ist hier gegen die Blende, dh bei der rechten Vorderteil werden Sie am Ende der Rückreihe die Maschen abnehmen ;Am Anfang nächster Hinreihe stricken Sie die ersten 6-9 M (siehe Größe)und legen Sie diese Maschen still - diese Maschen werden dann später für die Kapuze gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ina Møller 18.09.2018 - 13:58:

Hej da jeg har strikket denne kørepose i perlestrik og vasket den i håndvask med uldsæbe og rullet den i håndklæde er den blevet meget løs kan den tåle tørretrumle på uld tak Ina

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 15:09:

Hej Ina, har du strikket den i DROPS Merino Extra Fine ? Hvis ja, så skal du vaske den separat på 40 grader finvask, med kun lidt uldvaskemiddel (absolut ikke noget skyllemiddel) og så skal den ligge til tørre. Vær forsigtig når du klemmer det sidste vand ud af den. Er den våd for længe kan fibrene ødelægges. God fornøjelse!

Isabel 03.09.2018 - 22:27:

Guten Abend, ich finde das Muster wunderschön bisher, stecke aber leider bei den Vorderteilen fest. Den Abschnitt 'Vorderteil' habe ich fertiggestrickt. Wenn das Muster vorne sichtbar ist, befindet sich mein Arbeitsfaden auf der rechten Seite (laut Bild auf der Knopfleisten-Seite). Das wären die Maschen zum Stilllegen. Mit welchem Faden und von welcher Seite stricke ich denn nun die beiden Teile weiter? Könnten Sie mir das bitte etwas erläutern? Vielen Dank im Voraus.

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 10:26:

Liebe Isabel, wenn Sie den Vordertel Abschnitt fertig haben, werden die beiden Vorderteile separat gestrickt: die ersten 42-55 M (siehe Größe) von der Vorderseite gesehen können Sie zuerst stricken dann stilllegen (so daß Sie den Faden nicht abschneiden sollen). Dann stricken Sie die letzten 48-61 M für den rechten Vorderteil (= mit 6 M Krausrippe für die Knopfleiste). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ina Møller 29.08.2018 - 22:40:

Hej st.3-6mdr lige efter de 4cm retstrikning hvor man skal tage 22 m ud på forstykket Venlig hilsen Ina

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 14:52:

Hej Ina, du skal bruge flere masker på forstykket fordi hver snoning skal bruge dobbelt så mange masker end hvis det havde været glatstrik. Snoningerne trækker maskerne sammen til halvdelen af hvad glatstrik fylder. (Og du strikker kun snoninger på forstykker) God fornøjelse!

Ina Møller 29.08.2018 - 08:54:

Hej Hvorfor skal der være 22 masker flere på forstykket i forhold til bagstykket Venlig hilsen Ina Møller Nielsen

DROPS Design 29.08.2018 kl. 15:48:

Hej Ina, hvis du skriver hvilken størrelse du strikker og hvor du er i opskriften, så skal vi prøve at svare :)

Kristine 15.08.2018 - 18:46:

On the right front, I don't understand the dec 4 sts on the cable. Does the cable become just 2 sts instead of four and you dec 1 st on each side of the cable?

DROPS Design 16.08.2018 kl. 09:21:

Dear Kristin, correct, this way you will keep the correct width (cables require more sts in width than stocking st/garter st). Happy knitting!
