I am trying to figure out how to place the four markers. I casted on 102 stitches, but when I start to place the markers I do not have enough stitches. When I add up the stiches for the 4 markers I get 202. What am I doing wrong?

DROPS Design 12.09.2017 kl. 08:02:

Dear Mrs Linstrom, in 4th size, insert the markers after the 25th st, the 29th st (= 4 sts between both markers), then after the 73rd st and the last after the 77th st (= 4 sts between these both markers), 25 sts remain before end of row. Happy knitting!

Rieant 02.02.2016 - 13:38:

Quelle laine prendre pour avoir ce dégradé de couleurs? La laine proposée en remplacement ne correspond pas . Merci

DROPS Design 02.02.2016 kl. 13:41:

Bonjour Mme Rieant, vous trouverez ici une suggestion d'alternative. Votre magasin DROPS pourra vous conseiller! Bon tricot!

Joëlle 15.02.2015 - 18:34:

Bonjour Pouvez vous me dire si c'est normal que les manches se tricotent en jersey hors le reste se tricote au point mousse. D'avance merci pour vôtre réponse.

DROPS Design 16.02.2015 kl. 11:09:

Bonjour Joëlle, le gilet se tricote entièrement en jersey, avec 4 m au point mousse de chaque côté (bordures des devants). Bon tricot!

Corinna 23.10.2014 - 16:12:

Sorry... als blutige anfängerin stolpere ich hier: "die Arbeit wenden wenn noch 10 M. übrig sind. Die Arbeit wenden und den Faden anziehen. Zurück stricken bis noch 10 M. übrig sind. Die Arbeit wenden und den Faden abziehen. " Was bedeutet "Faden anziehen" und "Faden abziehen"? frägt sich Corinna...

DROPS Design 23.10.2014 kl. 22:31:

"Faden abziehen" ist ein Schreibfehler und bedeutet "Faden anziehen". :-) Am besten schauen Sie sich ein Video zu verkürzten Reihen an (unter "Videos" im Kopf neben dem Foto), dort können Sie die Grundlagen am besten lernen. Wenn dann noch Fragen offen sind, können Sie die natürlich gerne stellen.

Lion 18.11.2013 - 11:04:

Bonjour , en regardant les commentaires , j ai vu que vs aviez ecrit que le travail etait fait ac 3 fils ? sur les explications ,il est note 2 fils ! est ce 2ou3 fils pour la realisation ? merci pr votre reponse , cordialement .

DROPS Design 18.11.2013 kl. 11:20:

Bonjour Mme Lion, cette veste se tricote bien avec 2 fils comme indiqué dans les explications - sur la base d'un échantillon de 9m x 12 rangs jersey = 10 x 10 cm. Bon tricot!

Heike Tegtmeyer 28.10.2013 - 19:19:

Hat schon jemand diese Jacke gestrickt? Ist sie einfach zu stricke? Gibt es irgendwelche Probleme beim Stricken?

MAG 21.10.2013 - 09:11:

Bonjour, j'aimerais réaliser ce modèle mais je voudrais le travailler avec la laine ANDE ou j'aime beaucoup les couleurs.Les échantillons sont à peu prés les mêmes.J'e voudrais avoir votre avis et dans le cas affirmatif, combien dois je commander de pelotes pour la taille S.Merci de votre réponse et je vous souhaite une agréable journée.Marie

DROPS Design 21.10.2013 kl. 11:50:

Bonjour Mme Mag, cette veste a été tricotée avec 3 fils Verdi, outre les caractéristiques différentes de Verdi et Andes, Verdi se présente en pelote de 350 g. Pour trouver un modèle en Andes et les fournitures nécessaires, pensez à utiliser le moteur de recherches en page d'accueil, et n'hésitez pas à demander conseil à votre magasin DROPS. Bon tricot!

Marie Holmström 28.02.2012 - 17:41:

Ni behöver inte svara. Kom just på att jag satt markörerna i maskor istället för mellan maskor, mycket dumt.

Marie Holmström 28.02.2012 - 17:30:

När man börjar sticka oket i strl.M har man 132m. På slutet efter 8 markeringar ska det bli 17 maskor kvar. Det går inte ihop. Är det fel på mönstret?

DROPS Design 02.03.2012 kl. 08:39:

Hej, första markering är efter 17 maskor, sen skall du ha 7 markeringar med 14 maskors mellanrum och då är det 17 maskor kvar; 17 + (7x 14)+ 17 = 132. Lycka till!

Liz 02.12.2011 - 18:19:

Ik heb t vest gemaakt met de exacte wol in maat M, maat is ok maar wol is veel dikker dan op t plaatje en veel zachter. ook de banden die de wol automatisch vormt zijn veel groter en dus minder vaak, jammer, want t vest op t plaatje is erg leuk en mijn vest is just ok.
