When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm divide piece at inside of leg and complete piece back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip sts on circular needle later on). Cast on 1 edge st each side = 52-58-64 (70-76) sts. When piece measures 18-22-25 (29-34) cm cast off 1 edge st each side. Put piece aside and knit the other leg in the same way.

Hvað þýðir: Eftir þetta er prjónað sléttprjón með 1l garðaprjón á hvorri hlið við miðju að framan þar til hettan mælist 21 sm. skil ekki hvar brugna lykkjan á að koma

Jennifer 09.01.2019 - 17:11:

Hallo, Ik ben een beginnende breier en worstel al bij de pijp. Ik heb de eerste pijp direct al met een rondbreinaald gebreid. Nu ben ik bij dit stuk ...”Splits bij een hoogte van 16-20-23 (25-32) cm het werk aan de binnenkant van de pijp en brei het werk verder heen en weer op de nld (om het makkelijker te maken beide pijpen straks op een rondbreinld te zetten).”. Is dit ook van toepassing als ik met een rondbreinaald brei? Ik hoor het graag. Groet! Jennifer

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 11:29:

Dag Jennifer,

Ja dit is ook van toepassing als je op de rondbreinaald breit. (Overigens wordt in het patroon ook aangegeven dat je met de rondbreinaald de pijpen breit). Nadat je de tweede pijp hebt gebreid worden beide pijpen samengevoegd op een rondbreinaald.

Astrid 08.10.2018 - 10:31:

Ich habe mal eine Frage zu der Blende. Ich habe nur 42 Randmaschen, es sollen aber 75 Maschen für die Blende aufgenommen werden. Wie soll das gehen?

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 14:10:

Liebe Astrid, seien Sie sicher, Sie genügend Maschen für die Blende aufgenommen haben - siehe Video. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Carrie 05.10.2018 - 18:44:

Okay I'm having a problem. When I added the sleeves to the body part I have the exact amount of stitches called for 24 months 220 stitches total. I have dec. before and after each stitch marker like it said. after 7 times dec on rs I bound off on each side 2 sts. 5 times. then 1 st. both sides 3 times. I end up with 46 extra sts. I should have 74sts. But I've got 120sts. What am I doing wrong??? Please help🙏

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 07:52:

Dear Carrie, continue decreasing for raglan at the same time as you dec for neck and after neck dec have been worked, you will have 74 sts left. Happy knitting!

Kiitos, ihanasta ohjeesta. Teen 3. pukua samalle vauvalle, äiti on tykästynyt malliin. 1 puuvillapuku ja 2 villapukua, menee jo melkein ulkomuistista.

Martina Edel 20.09.2018 - 13:11:

Hallo liebes Drops team, Habe auch eine Frage zur Kapuze. 60-100 M auffassen ist klar. Doch wie ist es zu verstehen, auf 44/48/52 anpassen. Bedeutet das, durch Abnehmen wieder auf so eine kleine Maschenzahl zu reduzieren um dann anschliessend wieder verteilt 24 M aufzunehmen?

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 13:26:

Liebe Frau Edel, ja genau, zuerst die Maschen auffassen, dann gleichmäßig verteilt zu 44-48-52 (56-60) M. abnehmen, dann nach 4 Reihen (= 2 Krausrippen) 24 M gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ribel Francoise 04.04.2018 - 11:11:

Il manque une pelote pour la taille 2 (6/9)

Gabriele Gleichauf-Bauer 13.12.2017 - 21:06:

Liebes Dropsteam,ich verstehe die Anleitung fürdie Kapuze nicht. Was ist gemeint mit Maschen aufnehmen rund um den Hals, wo ? Wieviel Maschen, 60-100 ? Heisst anpassen Maschen abnehmen ?Und rund um die Kapuze Maschen aufnehmen , wo ?

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 07:59:

Liebe Frau Gleichauf-Bauer, es werden zuerst ca 60-100 M rund um den Hals (aber nicht über den Blenden) aufgenommen, dann die Maschenanzahl auf 44-48-52 (56-60) M bei der 1. Reihe anpassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maike 05.12.2017 - 19:32:

Ich Mal wieder Wie soll man die Blende am unteren Ende zusammen Nähen auf dem Bild geht die so zusagen über zwei Beine aber wenn ich die Loch Seite (rechts) mache dann habe ich nichts für die zweite Hälfte oder muss man die aufeinander legen

DROPS Design 06.12.2017 kl. 09:09:

Liebe Maike, die Blende werden zusammen an den 8 Maschen, die am Anfang Strampler abgekettet wurden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maike 04.12.2017 - 15:58:
