Bonjour,après avoir suivi les explications de la veste je me retrouve avec le corps du gilet sur l envers après les diminutions des emmanchures pour reprendre les manches qui sont sur l endroit.je n ai pas compris comment je dois procéder.merci de votre réponse.j aime beaucoup vos modèles et c est la première fois que je n arrive pas à comprendre les explications.

DROPS Design 30.03.2016 kl. 08:53:

Bonjour Brigitte, la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment placer les mailles des manches (tricotées en rond) sur la même aiguille circulaire que les devants et le dos - placez bien vos marqueurs. Quand toutes les mailles sont sur l'aiguille, tricotez le 1er rang sur l'envers comme avant (= jersey avec les bordures devant au point mousse) et commencez le raglan au rang suivant (= sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Rhea 15.09.2013 - 10:29:

Jeg beklager at jeg ikke kan finne diagrammet M.1

DROPS Design 17.09.2013 kl. 17:34:

Hej Rhea. Se nederst paa mönstret ved maalskitsen - under det venstre aerme finder du M.1

Kerstin 11.03.2013 - 09:45:

Ich trage die Größe XL. Die Passe war nach Fertigstellung der Jacke viel zu groß. Ich habe folgende Veränderungen vorgenommen: 1. für die `gesamte` Passe Nadelstärke 4 2. in der letzten Reihe der ersten Krausrippen (zum Beginn der Passe) Maschenanzahl auf Größe L reduziert Jetzt paßt die Jacke so gut, wie alle anderen Jacken die ich bisher nach Drops-Anleitungen gestrickt habe. Bin sehr zufrieden !

Linda 24.05.2012 - 19:00:

Alpaca: 50 g = 167 m Kid-Silk: 50 g = 400 ! Elementärt!

Anna 24.05.2012 - 13:58:

Förstår inte?? Om man ska sticka med båda trådarna hela vägen hur kan det då gå åt dubbelt så mycket av den ena kvalit'en.

Tove Lindfjord 31.01.2011 - 12:29:

Nydelig

Sara 16.01.2011 - 18:43:

Veramente carina ,vorrei proprio averla!

Malin 13.01.2011 - 13:56:

För övrigt är koftan kanonfin!! Vill sticka!

Malin 13.01.2011 - 13:53:

Som svar till Sara; jag tror man stickar hela arbetet med två trådara, en av varje.

Sara 13.01.2011 - 09:21:

Der står i materialelisten at der skal bruges en smule Kid-silk ud over Alpacaen. Men jeg kan ikke læse hvor det skal bruges i opskriften.
