Ik ben bezig aan het linkervoorpand en daar staat: "Plaats bij een hoogte van 43-46-48 (51-54-58) cm de eerste 4-5-5 (6-6-7) st aan de halszijde op 1 draad voor de hals." Ik begrijp dit niet echt, op welke draad? Hoe gebeurd dit? Hopelijk kan ik meer info hier omtrent krijgen zodat ik verder kan met dit patroon. Alvast bedankt.

Hoi Barbara. Zie in deze video hoe je st op een hulpdraad kan plaatsen:

Salvadora Garcia 02.02.2016 - 19:47:

Bonjour, Je suis toujours coincée pour les devants concernant les mailles pour la capuche. Quand vous parlez des mailles du milieu devant: sont-elles situées au milieu du travail des devants ou au milieu de la veste (ce qui correspondrait à la bordure en point de mousse)? Merci de votre réponse - et votre patience.

DROPS Design 03.02.2016 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Mme Garcia, pour la capuche, on met en attente sur les devants les 4-7 premières mailles (sur chaque devant) à partir de la bordure devant (= milieu du devant de la veste), puis on rabat les mailles de l'encolure. Pour la capuche, on reprend ces mailles en attente sur le devant droit, on relève les mailles le long de l'encolure et on reprend les mailles en attente du devant gauche. Bon tricot!

Salvadora Garcia 15.01.2016 - 16:59:

Pour les devant du modèle on lit : "placer les 5 mailles du milieu devant sur un fil pour le col". Comment on procède ensuite avec ces mailles: on les tricote ? Je ne sais pas comment les traiter. Merci de votre réponse. Cordialement

DROPS Design 16.01.2016 kl. 11:00:

Bonjour Mme Garcia, tricotez ces mailles et glissez-les sur un fil ou un arrêt de mailles (on ne les tricote plus désormais), puis terminez le rang et continuez comme indiqué. On reprendra ensuite ces mailles plus tard pour le col. Bon tricot!

Françoise Bélanger 12.04.2014 - 19:31:

Bonjour une question actuellement je tricote le gilet ,je voudrais savoir si la maille lisière est comprise avec le nombre de mailles demandé ou elle sont à part j'attend une réponse un grand meric j'espére que je me suis bien expliqué

DROPS Design 14.04.2014 kl. 09:00:

Bonjour Mme Bélanger, le nombre de mailles à monter comprend les m lis pour le dos, et pour les devants 1 m lis d'un côté et les 4 m de bordure devant de l'autre côté). Bon tricot!

Shirley 16.01.2014 - 08:12:
