Hallo, sie schreiben - glatt, mit der Rückseite nach aussen stricken, heißt das auf der Vorderseite werden die Hinreihen (außer M1) immer links gestrickt und die Rückreihen immer rechts? - damit auf der Vorderseite alles links erschein? Danke.

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 12:20:

Liebe Susi, ja genauso wird es gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susi 18.12.2018 - 13:13:

Hallo, sind in dem Diagramm M1 Hin- und Rückreihen gezeichnet oder sind das nur die Hinreihen? Wie werden die Rückreihen gestrickt. Danke.

DROPS Design 18.12.2018 kl. 13:19:

Liebe Susi, alle Reihen sind im Diagram gezeigt, dh die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen - Hinreihen lesen Sie rechts nach links und Rückreihen links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Da Silva 18.02.2018 - 08:17:

Bonjour, si je comprends bien , pour la taille S on diminue deux mailles à droite d’abord 14 fois tous les 4 rangs et seulement après avoir terminé ses augmentations on diminuera 9 fois tous les 2 rangs? Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Da Silva, Pour le devant droit en taille S, on augmente: à droite 14 x tous les 4 rangs puis (quand ces 14 augmentations sont faites) 9 x tous les 2 rangs et en même temps, on augmente à gauche 3 x tous les 6 rangs et (quand les 3 augmentations sont faites) 23 x tous les 4 rangs. Bon tricot!

Nadette 22.10.2017 - 09:21:

Bonjour, Quand les augmentations de droite sont terminées (hauteur d'environ 37 cm), on diminue d'une maille à droite et on tricote les cinq 1ères mailles du rang en point mousse mais faut-il continuer les augmentations tous les 2 rangs ? Sur le schéma, on a l'impression que c'est le cas. Ou alors faut-il continuer tout droit sur le coté droit ? Merci

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 10:17:

Bonjour Nadette, continuez les augmentations à gauche comme avant, quand elles seront faites, vous aurez 115-131 m et l'ouvrage mesure env. 52-54 cm (cf taille). Bon tricot!

Edda 27.08.2017 - 17:52:

Hallo Was bedeutet mit 2 Fäden? 2 Knäuel gleichzeitig? Kann man dann nicht gleich dickere Wolle nehmen? Ich habe hier noch geschenkte Wolle. 22 Reihen 16 Maschen =10*10 Könnte ich diese benutzen? Danke für die Hilfe.

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Edda, mit 2 Fäden bedeutet Sie stricken with 2 Knäuel oder mit die 2 Fäden einer einzigen Knäuel gleichzeitig. Sie können auch mit nur 1 Knäuel stricken da 2 Fäden Garngruppe A wie Alpaca hier können mit 1 Faden Garngruppe C erszetzt werden, lesen Sie mehr hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jen Braccia 08.01.2017 - 07:26:

On row 3 of the m.1 diagram the middle cable, looks like an upside down v, it is over 8 stitches however it uses only 4 stitches to make it. It says slip 2 on cable needle k2 and k2 from cable. Where are the other 4 stitches? What do I do here

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 09:22:

Dear Mrs Braccia, diagrams are read starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left (from RS) and from the left towards the right from WS. Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Sanna 22.05.2016 - 16:21:

I knit left handed (from left to right on the RS). I guess I need to switch so that I read the RS rows in M1 from left to right. Do I need to change anything else, for example the order of the cable stitches?

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 09:23:

Dear Sanna, you may have to work a swatch with M.1 to be sure how you would have to read diagram and cables. Our diagrams are supposed to be read from right to left from RS and from left to right from WS. Happy knitting!

Bianca 19.11.2015 - 21:29:

I would like to make this pattern with yarn from group c, drops Air for example. Do I need half of the mentioned quantity of yarn then? For example, for size Medium, 325g?

DROPS Design 20.11.2015 kl. 09:57:

Dear Bianca, you will find here all relevant informations about alternative and how to calculate the new amount of yarn. Remember your DROPS store will also help you with tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Yolanda Arias 26.09.2015 - 18:35:

Hola se podria hacer con agujas recta, esque no se me dan bien las circulares

DROPS Design 29.09.2015 kl. 11:18:

Hola Yolanda. Este modelo se trabaja con agujas circulares debido a que el elevado nº de pts lo hace incómodo para las ag rectas.

Magnin Usel 18.03.2014 - 21:24:

Bonjour, le nombre de maille après augmentations (115) ne cadre pas avec le nombre d augmentation à droite (46) et gauche (26) plus les 24 mailles du dessin. Comment interpréter vos explications ? Ou est ce que je me trompe?

DROPS Design 19.03.2014 kl. 08:55:

Bonjour Mme Magnin, avez-vous vu la réponse ci-dessous ? Merci de bien vouloir détailler votre question si la réponse ne correspond pas. Bon tricot !
