Hola. En el patrón mencionan que después de armar 7 cm del punto resorte 2 der x 2 rev es necesario hacer disminuciones al mismo tiempo en una vuelta de derecho; estoy tejiendo el saco en talla XL y se indica que de 220 puntos se deberán disminuir equitativamente 42 puntos hasta llegar a 178 puntos. mi pregunta es ¿cada cuantos puntos es conveniente hacer la disminución simple para que quede lo mas distribuido posible?. La verdad no se como calcular eso. Gracias

Manuela Vianello 22.11.2017 - 23:49:

Capito, grazie mille siete fantastici

Manuela Vianello 17.11.2017 - 18:31:

Ma quello che non capisco sono proprio le 12 sezioni che cosa si intende appunto per queste 12 sezioni scusate e grazie mille del vostro aiuto

DROPS Design 17.11.2017 kl. 20:35:

Buonasera Manuela. Per sezioni si intendono i gruppi di 2 m dir delle coste 2 m dir/ 2 m rov. Deve aumentare 1 m nei 12 gruppi di 2 m dir all'altezza della nuca (non sul fondo della giacca). Ci riscriva se è ancora in difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Manuela Vianello 14.11.2017 - 21:12:

Non riesco a capire cosa devo fare con i bordi frontali in particolare dove si dice ...Now inc 1 st in each of the top 10-10-11-11-12-12 K-sections...che cosa sono queste k-sections dove devo aumentare le mie 12 maglie? la mia taglia è la xxl....grazie mille

DROPS Design 14.11.2017 kl. 23:46:

Buonasera Manuela, nel menù a tendina può selezionare la lingua italiana per il modello. In ogni caso deve aumentare 1 maglia in ognuna delle 12 sezioni a diritto in alto. Buon lavoro!

Heike Von Au 15.10.2017 - 18:16:

Hallo zusammen! Ist es richtig, dass die Schultern in Größe M hinten mit 22 Maschen enden und vorne mit 23 Maschen? Ich werden lieber auch vorne mit 22 Maschen enden, damit ich besser zusammennähen kann...

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 10:03:

Liebe Frau Von Au, es stimmt ja so, die zusätzliche Masche bein den beiden Vorderteilen ist die Randmasche. Die Maschen für die Blende/Halskante werden dann innherhalb diese Randmasche (Vorderteil) aufgenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Malene Frimann 24.11.2016 - 09:12:

Indtagningen før og efter rettesnor skal det måles uden ribkant 7 cm eller starter målingen med ribkant.

DROPS Design 24.11.2016 kl. 11:30:

Hej Malene. Du maaler totale höjde, dvs incl. ribkant.

Beverly Conran 27.04.2016 - 00:53:

How do you cast of the number of stitches stated ( 6 sts ) 3 on each side of marker, then 2 on each side of marker etc when shaping cap on the sleeve, when you are using dpn's? Is there a video of this?

DROPS Design 27.04.2016 kl. 08:53:

Dear Mrs Conran, after you have cast off the 6 sts mid under arm, continue back and forth (= in rows), on dpn or on circular needles as you rather work, and cast off at the beg of each row on each side 2 st 2 times etc. Happy knitting!

Sabine 28.05.2014 - 14:10:

Ich überlege diese Jacke mit Alpaca zu stricken. Muss ich davon ausgehen, dass Sie sich in der Länge noch sehr aushängt und damit länger wird? Hat jemand Erfahrungn?

DROPS Design 04.06.2014 kl. 08:02:

Liebe Sabine, es könnte sein, dass die Jacke sich auf Grund des Gewichts etwas in die Länge zieht, aber doppeltes Alpaca eignet sich insgesamt sehr gut. Ich persönlich trage eine - allerdings etwas kürzere - Jacke aus doppeltem Alpaca schon seit einigen Jahren, ohne dass sich irgendetwas verzogen hat. Viel Spass mit diesem Modell!

Iliane 08.09.2012 - 23:32:

JACKE: "Nach 10 cm auf beiden Seiten der Markierung je 1M abn." 10cm der gesamten Höhe oder 10cm ab gl re Beginn? Vielen Dank, Iliane

DROPS Design 10.09.2012 kl. 12:43:

Liebe Iliane, Sie haben recht, das war nicht deutlich übersetzt: es sind 10 cm Gesamthöhe. Ich habe es in der Anleitung ergänzt.

Susan 19.03.2012 - 17:41:

I am looking for the gauge on the pattern 126-15 and can't seem to locate it. Would you kindly point me in the right direction? Thank you, Susan

DROPS Design 20.03.2012 kl. 17:31:
