Liz 02.04.2017 - 22:30:

Je souhaite commencer ce modèle. J'ai néanmoins une question concernant les mesures. 48 cm pour le bas me semble grand pour moi. Il me suffirait de 41 cm De même pour les 53 cm sous les bras. 48 cm me suffirait. Si je décide de commencer avec moins de mailles ( en faisant une règle de trois) es ce que je continue les augmentations comme décrit dans les explications ? ( la hauteur de 36 cm me semble ok). Merci de votre retour. je suis impatiente de commencer.

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 11:15:

Bonjour Liz, nous ne sommes pas malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chaque modèle à chaque demande individuelle, mais vous pourrez certainement ajustez à vos propres mesures en suivant le schéma, les explications et les mesures souhaitées. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider si nécessaire, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Sì può realizzare anche con ferrì circolari?

DROPS Design 24.02.2016 kl. 09:55:

Buongiorno Dea. Può sostituire i ferri dritti con quelli circolari e seguire le stesse spiegazioni. Buon lavoro!

1. Was sind Blendmaschen? 2. Sind auch die Randmaschen enthalten? 3. Wenn alle 3,5 cm 1 M zugenommen wird, dann muss bei Gr.M nach 20 cm die letzte M zugenommen werden und soll dann gleichzeitig nach 20 cm 4 M für den Ärmel zugenommen werden?

DROPS Design 24.01.2016 kl. 13:43:

Blenden heißen die vorderen Abschlüsse an den Rändern der Vorderteile. Rand-M sind normalerweise bei unseren Anleitungen enthalten. Die Zunahmen sind schon eher fertig: Die erste Zunahme machen Sie bei 5 cm. Dann folgen noch weitere 4 Zunahmen (insgesamt 5) im Abstand von je 3,5 cm = 14 cm + 5 cm = 19 cm.

Weshalb kann ich die Anleitung nicht ausdrucken?

DROPS Design 25.06.2014 kl. 11:58:

Sofern Sie anderweitig keine Probleme mit Ihrem Drucker haben, sollte es kein Problem sein, die Anleitung auszudrucken - Sie wählen den Knopf "Drucken: Anleitung" rechts unten neben dem Foto, dann erscheint ein Fenster, in welchem Sie noch mal auf "Anleitung drucken" klicken. Dann erscheint die Druckversion bzw. je nach Ihrer Computereinstellung die Anzeige, mit welchem Drucker nun gedruckt wird.

Atha 18.06.2014 - 13:18:

When you say "When piece measures 6-5-5-7-7-8 cm, inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 4-3½-5-4½-5-5 cm a total of 4-5-4-4-4-4 times = 90-96-104-112-122-132 sts" What do you mean? Is it that at the same line you add 1 st 4 times or is it that every 4 cm knitted you add 1 st at each side for 4 times?

DROPS Design 18.06.2014 kl. 14:50:

Dear Atha, you work 1 row increasing 1 st at the beg + 1 st at the end of row (=each side), and repeat these inc a total of 4-5 times (see size), ie repeat the inc every new 4 cm worked. Happy knitting!

Susan-Ellen 09.06.2012 - 03:36:

Just what I was looking for! A nice quick knit for those chilly nights near the lake, or on a cloudless desert night where the temperatures drop drastically.

Carole P 13.05.2012 - 10:23:

Je viens de terminer ce modèle après beaucoup beaucoup de patience (1er tricot) et je suis déçu car il est trop grand derrière, il baille un peu beaucoup, pourtant j'avais fait un échantillon :(

Denise Hobo-Tuck 12.12.2011 - 04:21:
