Bonsoir, j'aimerais savoir combien de pelotes il me faut pour ce modèle en taille 40 (L). De plus je voudrais que la jupe m'arrive à hauteur du genou, c'est à dire en longueur 52 cm. Combien de pelotes il faut rajouter? Merci de votre réponse. Cordialement

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 09:56:

Bonjour Mme Reix, vous trouverez la quantité totale nécessaire pour chaque taille, au poids, sous l'en-tête des explications, soit 5 pelotes en taille L. Nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande individuelle, vous pouvez volontiers vous adresser à votre magasin DROPS ou à un forum de tricot pour toute assistance complémentaire pour adapter cette jupe à vos envies. Bon tricot!

Hi! As far as I understand, first, in this pattern parts 1 and 3 are knitted from top to bottom, part 2 from right to left and part 4 from left to right. And second, the stitches from the stitch holder on part 2 are grafted with the stitches on the stitch holder from part 8. Am I right? Thank you.

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 13:25:

Dear Katerina, part 1 and 3 are worked from the tip (= cast on 3 sts) to the top (= increase until there are 47-77 sts - see size). Part 2 and 4 are worked top down (= cast on 2 sts and increase until there are 78-115 sts). See also measurement chart with all parts. Happy knitting!

Hallo, wie ist das bei Teil 3 und 4 mit dem spiegelverkehrt stricken gemeint? Ist es so gemeint das ich da mit der hohen Maschenzahl anfange und dann entsprechend abnehme? LG Tanja

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 09:48:

Liebe Tanja, spiegelverkehr bedeutet wenn Sie vor bzw nach der Markierer zugenommen haben, jetzt werden Sie nach bzw vor der Markierer zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Stephanie 27.06.2016 - 12:23:

Hi, do I work 3 rows and increase on that 3rd row, then work 4 rows and work inc on that row (2 inc at same side) Then again on following 3rd then again on following 4th (2 inc now at opposite side of marker). Can you explain the line on pattern, "inc 1 stitch on 3rd and 4th row alternately" please as I can't get this to work out. Thanks again for helping out.

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 17:39:

Dear Stephanie, when inc alternately every 3rd and every 4th row, work as follows: *work 2 rows, inc on next row (= 3rd row), work 3 rows, inc on next row (= 4th row)* and repeat from *-*. Happy knitting!

Stephanie 25.06.2016 - 13:24:

Hi, confused starting section 1. If I inc on 3rd row, then 4th etc I'm inc 2 stitches on one side of marker then 2 stitches at other side, resulting in piece being a triangle. On chart, piece one has an angle at left and straight edge at right. Piece 3 being a mirror image and two pieces sewn together. Cannot understand why inc are not done at same side to give angle. Also can't figure out how a total of 104 stitches is enough for the waist of medium size. Help appreciated.

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 09:33:

Dear Stephanie, you inc before last st seen from RS, so that right side of piece will be straight and left side of piece will create a diagonal. Part 1 and 3 are for front piece, you will work 2 similar pieces for back piece = 104 sts x 2 = 208 sts around the waist. Happy knitting!

Jess 17.06.2016 - 15:46:

Just to clarify size. Is the cm measurement on chart given for garment lying flat. So size Small would measure 64 cm from left to right and 128cm all the way around. Waist 36 flat left to right and 72cm all around waist. Thanks.

DROPS Design 17.06.2016 kl. 19:54:

Dear Jess,you're right, these are the measurement for the bottom part; for size S waist measurement are 36 cm lying flat and 72 cm all the way round. Happy knitting!

Elisabeth 12.11.2014 - 00:24:

Jeg kunne tenke meg å lage dette skjørtet lengre uten å samtidig måtte gå opp i størrelse. Vil den meste måten å gjøre dette på være å forlenge linningen?

DROPS Design 12.11.2014 kl. 11:52:

Hej Elisabeth. Det kan du forsöge - eller strik flere pinde imellem ökningerne paa trekanterne, saa de bliver laengere - men ikke bredere.

Leary 09.11.2014 - 11:42:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas bien la nécessité de mettre les mailles de la 2eme partie en attente étant donné qu'elles ne servent pas pour la taille. Ne peut-on pas simplement finir le triangle et conserver le nombre de mailles ? Merci.

DROPS Design 10.11.2014 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Leary, les mailles en attente de chaque côté (parties 2 et 4) sont ensuite assemblées entre elles en grafting (dos & devant). Bon tricot!

Mette 30.01.2014 - 21:13:

(Forsat) Hvis man ser på skitsen så er del 2 ikke retvinklet, men ser derimod ud til at der er lukket af for masker over flere pinde til sidst for at få den skrå side søm?
