Ich weiß nicht wie ich das Lochmuster in der Rückreihe stricken muss? Wird da alles Gegengewicht gearbeitet, auch von der Reihenfolge des Musters?

DROPS Design 15.06.2016 kl. 08:03:

Liebe Maja, im Diagramm sind alle Reihen dargestellt, in den Rückreihen stricken Sie also linke Maschen.

Ines 17.11.2014 - 23:11:

Si decido hacer este modelo con Vivaldi (lana alternativa) cuantos gramos de lana necesitaría teniendo en cuenta que cada ovillo de 50 gramos de Boulin lín tiene 85 metros y cada ovillo de Vivaldi tiene 260? Es la proporción 1 ovillo de Vivaldi po 3 de Boullin lín.?

DROPS Design 20.11.2014 kl. 09:44:

Hola Inés. Aparte de los metros del ovillo tienes que tener en cuenta que la labor en Vivaldi no tiene la misma caída que la labor con Bomull-Lin y para este modelo puede ser importante. Por lo demás el cálculo es correcto.

Eirini 13.05.2014 - 17:14:

If i got it right the ws goes 5garter,k3,purl the k2 and yover,reverse and etc?

DROPS Design 13.05.2014 kl. 18:30:

Dear Mrs Eirini, from WS, you will have K5 (garter st), then K3 (= P3 from RS), then P the sts from M.1 as shown in diagram, work then the next sts knitwise (= reverse stockinette seen from RS = P from RS, K from WS). Happy knitting!

Eirini 13.05.2014 - 15:23:

How can i work wrong side rows?

DROPS Design 13.05.2014 kl. 16:08:

Dear Eirini, the P sts from RS will be K, the K sts from RS will be P. Happy knitting!

Karin 19.08.2013 - 09:32:

You must scroll down for diagram!

Mary Salvi 18.08.2013 - 17:27:

This pattern i think is missing the chart , please tell what does this mean-m.1=5 stitches

Dilianne 21.04.2013 - 21:32:

Ik heb dit helemaal volgens patroon gemaakt, ook met het juiste garen maar toen het klaar was bleek het veel te zwaar te zijn omdat het garen volgens mij eigenlijk niet geschikt is voor dit patroon. De lange punten zijn veel te lang en het geheel hangt heel zwaar op de schouders. Ik ben het inmiddels aan het uithalen en ga met dit garen een ander model breien.

Ximena Cortez 26.02.2013 - 20:38:

Esta lindo y parece super facil de realizar

Anton 15.02.2013 - 17:19:

Sie könnten ja ein anderes Modell wählen! Dieses hängt eben runter.

Gisela 15.02.2013 - 08:15:

Gibt es einen Tipp, dass der vordere Teil nicht so runter hängt?

DROPS Design 16.02.2013 kl. 19:24:

Liebe Gisela, das ist der besondere Schnitt dieses Modells und ist so gedacht. Vielleicht wählen Sie besser ein anderes Modell, wenn Ihnen das nicht so gut gefällt?
