Vielen Dank für die rasche Antwort! Das erklärt alles. Den Spaß beim Stricken hab ich - zumal jetzt ja das Ende schon absehbar ist... :-)

Johanna 17.01.2019 - 08:57:

(Fortsetzung) Aber mit 11 R. (R. 12 sind ja nur halbe E. und gibt keine Höhe mehr), kommt man doch nicht auf 52 cm... Kann es sein, dass da ein Fehler ist?

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 09:36:

siehe Antwort unten.

Johanna 17.01.2019 - 08:57:

Obwohl die Maschenprobe exakt gepasst hat, erreiche ich mit 12 Runden Dominoecken nicht die 52 cm aus der Maßskizze, sondern nur ca. 45 cm. Das Verhältnis Länge/Breite macht das auch plausibel: Die Breite von 7 Ecken unten entspr. 57 cm: Dann müssten 7 E. übereinander (also 14 R.!) auch 57 cm entsprechen, bzw. (weil die E. kleiner werden) vielleicht 52 cm. (Fortsetzung folgt...)

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Johanna, die 52 cm in der Maßskizze sind die gesamte Höhe vom Rock, dh 44 cm von den Dominoquadraten + 8 cm für den Bund. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Johanna 28.11.2018 - 23:50:

Sehe ich das richtig, dass die Bundweite bei Größe S/M etwa 74 cm und bei L/XL etwa 90 cm beträgt? - Da bin ich mit meiner Konfektionsgröße 40 wohl eher bei S/M, weil der Bund wahrscheinlich eher ausleiert, als dass er enger wird... Dann muss ich vielleicht mal noch überlegen, wie ich kreativ die Länge ein wenig anpasse... Oder habe ich irgendwo einen Denkfehler in meiner Überlegung?

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 09:58:

Liebe Johanna, Sie sind ja richtig, Umfang wird bei dem Bund 74 cm in der 1. Größe, 90 cm in der 2. Größe und 106 cm bei der 3. Größe. Hier lesen Sie mehr über die Maßskizze. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Liesel 16.09.2018 - 14:59:

Ich würde den Rock gerne etwas länger haben, geht das so einfach oder muss ich da was besonderes beachten?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 09:17:

Liebe LIesel, leider können wir nich jede Anleitung nach jedem individuellen Anfrage anpassen, Sie können aber gerne Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden aufnehmen, Sie werden Ihnen weiterhelfen - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Shasha 08.04.2018 - 01:10:

Hi! how would I make this skirt in a bigger size? how should I adjust the pattern? I hope it's possible this pattern is lovely!

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 13:33:

Dear Shasha, we are unfortunately not able to adapt every single pattern to each individual request. Please feel free to contact the store where you bought the yarn for any further assistance - even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Charlotte 15.07.2015 - 15:39:

Er det slik å forstå at den 14.ruten på Rad2 strikkes over 14. og 1. rute på Rad1, slik at man da strikker rundt, og ikke må sy sammen skjørtet etterpå?

DROPS Design 07.08.2015 kl. 14:54:

Hei Charlotte. Ja, firkanterne selv strikkes frem og tilbage, men firkanterne strikkes rundt, der kommer ingen söm ved firkanterne.

Ursel 21.05.2015 - 10:36:

Hallo liebes Drops Team, ich finde diesen Rock ganz toll, aber wie viele Maschen schlage ich pro Viereck an? Ich weiß nur, dass man bei diesen Dominoecken eine ungerade Maschenzahl braucht. Gruß, Ursel

DROPS Design 21.05.2015 kl. 11:00:

Die Anleitung beginnt unter der gestrichelten Linie bei "ROCK", dort finden Sie auch die Angaben zum Maschenanschlag und wie Sie die Maschen, die Sie zunächst für den gesamten Rockumfang anschlagen, auf die einzelnen Vierecke aufteilen. Es sind am Anfang 29-31-33 M pro Viereck, später werden es mit den Abnahmen dann weniger, das sehen Sie dann bei der jeweiligen Runde (in der 5. "Runde" erfolgen die ersten Abnahmen).

ET-1955 11.05.2015 - 10:10:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, verstehe ich es richtig, dass ich nach jedem Viereck den Faden abschneiden muss? Freundliche Grüße Erika

DROPS Design 11.05.2015 kl. 22:14:

Ja genau, das ist richtig. Die Fäden vernähen Sie am besten zwischendurch einfach immer mal wieder, dann ist es am Ende nicht so viel Arbeit und sieht dann auch schon "fertiger" aus - für mich hat sich diese Methode jedenfalls gut bewährt. :-)

Klazina 06.04.2015 - 13:31:

Waarom wordt bij dit patroon in de tailleband bijna op het laatst nog 5 steken geminderd?

DROPS Design 06.04.2015 kl. 15:22:

Beste Klazina, dat wordt gedaan om de tailleband aan de bovenkant iets smaller te maken.
