Tone Ihasee 26.04.2019 - 11:05:

Hei, Jeg lurer på om dere kunne lage et fargeforslag til dette vakre teppet som heller mer mot blåtoner? Mvh, Tone Ihasee

DROPS Design 26.04.2019 kl. 13:54:

Hei Tone. Dette blir litt det samme svaret som ditt forrige spørsmål: det er vanskelig å komme med alternativer for dette har veldig mye med smak og behag å gjøre. I Delight blir feks farge 04 en jevnere blåfarge enn farge 19, 09 eller 03 (som alle har innspill av andre farger), men den er også relativt mørk. Når det gjelder Alpacaen, kommer det an på hvor kraftig eller mørk blå du vil ha rutene, men vi har mange fine blåfarger i Alpaca, både lyse og mørke. Eller kanskje du vil ha en gråfarge som et av alternativene. Om du har mulighet er det lurt å besøke en butikk så du kan se garnene sammen. God fornøyelse

Katrine 18.02.2019 - 21:43:

Jeg forstår ikke det å strikke 2 rett i de neste 3 m osv, i M1. Altså å legge ut slik at det blir 53 masker. Vil det da si at jeg skal legge ut mellom de 3 maskene? Så var det dette med to rett i neste maske?

DROPS Design 19.02.2019 kl. 08:07:

Hei Katrine, Du strikker 2 masker i hver av de 3 neste maskene slik: Strikke 1 rett i begge løkkene på hver maske - dvs både foran og bak; dermed øker 1 maske. Gjør det samme i neste 2 masken (øker 3 masker totalt). Håper dette hjelper og god fornøyelse!

Helena 06.02.2019 - 22:04:

Hej! Har lite problem med M1. Har gjort de ökningar man ska och har 53m och ska börja med själva diagrammet men tycker det saknas 11 maskor. Vad är det som är fel? Tack på förhand! /Helena

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 09:53:

Hei Helena. Du har altså lagt opp 37 masker, som har økt til 53 masker. Når du så skal strikke etter M.1, strikker du slik: 3 masker rille, M.1 etter diagram (dette går over 47 masker), 3 masker rille = 53 masker. God fornøyelse

Katrine 06.12.2018 - 20:11:

Hei. Skal begynne på teppe nå. Lurer på den første setningen, skal det strikkes 5 riller, eller strikke rett den en veien og vrang den andre?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 08:17:

Hei Katrine. Du skal strikke 2,5 riller (1 rille = 2 omganger). Altså fra rettsiden ser det sånn ut: 1 omg rett, 1 omg vrang, 1 omg rett, 1 omg vrang, 1 omg rett. God fornøyelse.

Pia 26.11.2018 - 23:01:

Fel av mig, hade missat att läsa alla diagram förklaringar. Sorry

Pia 26.11.2018 - 22:38:

På M4 på rad 9, 26 och 40 måste det vara fel. På alla andra rader där det är hålmönster är varje litet "tecken" över 2 rutor, alltså över 2 maskor. Men på dom raderna (9,26 o 40) är dom bara över 1,5 ruta. Då stämmer det ju inte.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 10:12:

Hei Pia. Så bra at du fant ut av det. God fornøyelse

Nicola Overton 21.07.2018 - 03:51:

This pattern is gorgeous. Does it come as crochet as I can not knit.

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 01:15:

Dear Nicola, this blanket utilizes special kint stitches, to makeup different lace patterns, so the pattern cannot be transferred to crochet. However we do have a lot of pattern fr crocheted blankets, if you just search the database a little bit. Happy Crafting!

Marie-france 28.04.2018 - 18:10:

Bonjour je voudrais ajouter 2 autres bandes en largeur, combien de balle de laine de chaque couleur faut-il que je rachète. J’ai déjà acheter ce qu’il faut pour la couverture?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Marie-France, vous pouvez calculer la quantité nécessaire pour 1 bande et la multiplier par 2 pour savoir la quantité supplémentaire nécessaire. Pensez à bien arrondir car il vous faudra plus de laine également pour la bordure. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous renseigner, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Helga Eikerling 27.04.2018 - 11:32:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, mit der Anleitung Drops 124-20 habe ich ein Problem. Muster M1 finde ich dort 2x. Ein M1 hat Zu- und abnahmen und steht gleich am Amfang der Anleitung und das zweite M1 hat Zöpfe. Nun kann ich nur ein M1 Muster einordnen. Wo kommt das zweite M1 Muster hin. Für Ihre Bemühungen bedanke ich mich im Voraus Mit freunlichen Grüssen Helga Eikerling

DROPS Design 27.04.2018 kl. 12:28:

Liebe Frau Eikerling, M.1 wird wie im "M1 wie folgt" gestrickt: dh zuerst 5 Re über alle M, dann 1 Reihe mit Zunahmen, dann diagram M.1 stricken (1. Reihe = Rückreihe), dann 1 Reihe mit Abnahme und 3 R rechts stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Greveldinger 23.04.2018 - 13:29:

Bonjour, ma sœur m'a offert cette superbe couverture tricotée avec les fils recommandés. J'aimerai savoir si je peux la laver en machine sur le cycle froid. Merci.

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 13:56:

Bonjour Mme Greveldinger, lavez-là en suivant les indications sur le nuancier de DROPS Alpaca - vous trouverez ici quelques généralités à propos de l'entretien.
