Hallo, ich komme mit den Abnahmen in der Passe nicht klar, obwohl erfahrene Strickerin. Was bedeutet: Bei jedem cm total 6 Mal wiederholen? Und wie oft werden die Abnahmen wiederholt? In jeder Reihe der Vorderseite? Ist alles ein bisschen verwirrend erklärt. Schön wäre für Anfänger auch, ob die Diagramme nur die Hinreihe zeigen und auf der Rückseite gestrickt wird wie die Maschen erscheinen.Vielen Dank für eine Hilfe!

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 08:17:

Liebe Marianne, die Abnahmen stricken Sie jede cm x 6, dh 1 Reihe mit Abnahmen stricken, dann weiter ohne Abnahmen stricken, nach 1 cm noch 1 Reihe mit Abnahmen stricken und so stricken Sie weiter bis Sie 6 Reihen mit Abnahmen gestrickt haben. Die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen, dh Hin sowie Rückreihen. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Diagramme. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hvordan strikker man M4.

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 15:00:

Hei Ella. M.4 strikkes slik: ta 1 m løst av p, 1 r, løft den løse m over (= 1 maske felt), ta 1 m løst av p, 1 r, løft den løse m over (= 1 maske felt), så strikker du 2 m rett sammen (=1 maske felt), 2 masker rett sammen (1 maske felt). Du har felt totalt 4 masker, og sitter igjen med 4 masker. God fornøyelse

Pamela 28.11.2018 - 12:37:

Hola . Tengo agujas rectas, cuantos puntos tendría q poner para hacer espalda y dos delanteras? Para talle 9 meses y dos años? Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 30.12.2018 kl. 17:43:

Hola Pamela. No hacemos patrones personalizados. Puedes utilizar los cálculos para agujas circulares siempre añadiendo 1 punto a cada lado de cada parte que trabajas por separado para las costuras.

Helle Andersen 26.09.2018 - 22:02:

Jeg forstår ikke hvordan man skal tage ind, jeg er kommet til bærestykket Jeg kan ikke se at maskeantallet passer, og skiftevis i h og v side? Hvad betyder det? På hver cm? Tager man en ret og vrangmaske sammen?

DROPS Design 28.09.2018 kl. 14:56:

Hej, Når du tager ind skiftevis, tager du ind første gang i højre side af alla vrang-partier, næste gang (efter 1 cm) tager du ind i venstre side af alle vrang-partier. God fornøjelse!

Helle Andersen 18.09.2018 - 11:08:

Jeg kan ikke finde ud af hvordan jeg skal komme videre fra pind 5

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 15:05:

Hej Helle, Næste p strikkes således (fra retsiden): 5 m RETSTRIK - se forkl over (= forkant), 2 vr, M.1(12m), * 6 vr, M.3 (=8m) =ialt 14m*, gentag disse 14 masker fra *-* over de næste 112 m (ialt 8 gange) (hvis du strikker den mindste), slut af med 6 m vr, M.1 (12m), 2 vr og 5 m RETSTRIK ( = forkant). Fortsæt således men næste pind strikkes fra vrangen. God fornøjelse!

Still unsure, row 5, is it p2, slip 3 on cable needle front of work, k3, k3 on cable, is this repeated again only 3 sts are back of work, then p6 m3, bit confused reanding diagram, if i should do all M1 or half of it, is row 6 just plain knitting also

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 09:12:

Dear Ann, after the 4 knitted rows at the very beginning of the piece (= 2 ridges), work diagram M.1 as explained reading M.1 from the bottom corner on the right side to the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS, so that Row 1 and 5 in M.1 = K 12, Row 3 = work cables as explained and from WS (= row 2,4,6) purl 12. Repeat then these 6 rows in height beginning next repeat from row 1 in M.1. Happy knitting!

Ann 22.05.2018 - 22:09:

Many thanks for your help. I look forward to knitting the little vest.

Michelle Keen 22.05.2018 - 12:09:

Is the yoke decreases in the purl panels or in cable panel? M2 chart seems to tell me that the cable panel decreases at least three times.....

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 12:49:

Dear Mrs Keen, you decrease both in M.2 and in P-Sections - the decreases in the P-sections are done on every cm a total of 6-7-8 (9-9) times, at the same time, you work M.1 for 1-2-3-4 cm (see size) and then work M.2 instead of M.1. Happy knitting!

Ann 20.05.2018 - 19:04:

Just starting this lovely pattern. After row 4 do I purl 2, then follow diagram instructions M1, but not sure whether I should knit or purl M1 and M3 Stitches, I know i start and end each row with 5 garter stitches, but is it a stocking stitch pattern in general. Thank you.

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hi Ann, After row 4, you work as follows on row 5 (from the right side); 5 garter stitches, purl 2, then M.1 which you read from bottom left, so the first row is knit from the right side. Row 6 (row 2 in M.1) is purl from the wrong side to work stocking stitch. When you purl you start and finish with 5 garter stitches and knit 2 (rather than purl 2). Happy knitting!

Michelle Keen 20.05.2018 - 05:21:

So, after starting the yoke, do I replace all the M.1 pattern with the M.2 pattern after the 1 cm measurement?

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 10:09:

Dear Mrs Keen, yes that's right, after 1 cm in M.1 replace all M.1 with M.2 (decrease for yoke are including in M.2). Happy knitting!
