Jag har stickat alla delar men ärmen blir alldeles för liten i ärmkullen. Är det verkligen rätt maskantal? Skulle vara 24 cm ärmöppning, min ärm blir 18 cm. Har kollat stickfastheten så den stämmer. Stickar i Drops Andes.

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 08:13:

Hei Eva. Jeg antar du strikker størrelse XL/XXL iden du refererer til at ermåpningen skal være 24 cm. Du begynner å felle til ermåpning når arbeidet måler 43 cm, og du feller som anvist over 16 cm, til arbeidet måler 59 cm. Så feller du av alle maskene. Maskeantallet og målene som er angitt i oppskriften stemmer overens med målene på målskissen. Kan det være du ikke har strikket ermtoppen til den måler 16 cm i strikkeretningen? Du kan forsøke å feste ermet til åpningen i bolen med knappenåler før du syr slik at du er sikker på ermet blir sydd fast jevnt i forhold til bolen. God fornøyelse

Beste, zijn 6 bollen van 50gr (300gr) echt genoeg om deze trui te breien maat M drops cloud? Ik heb het gevoel dat ik niet genoeg wol ga hebben. Bedankt

DROPS Design 01.08.2018 kl. 21:32:

Dag Karin, Dat klopt wel hoor. Cloud is heel erg licht in gewicht. Daardoor heb je een hogere looplengte, dus meer meters bij een gewicht van 50 gr. :)

Kath 19.01.2017 - 00:47:

Pour la manche du patron 76-5 vous dites ( puis 2 m jusqu'à 58-58-59-59 cm) est ce que c'est 1 maille de chaque côté à tous les 2 rangs jusqu'à 59 cm ? ou 1 fois 2 mailles. Merci

DROPS Design 19.01.2017 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Kath, on rabat 2 mailles de chaque côté jusqu'à ce que la manche mesure 58-59 cm, soit 2 m au début de chaque rang à la fois sur l'endroit et sur l'envers jusqu'aux mesures indiquées. Bon tricot!

Marcy 18.01.2016 - 02:44:

Please explain what you mean "bind off for armhole at each side every other row." I understand the bind off and number of stitches but please explain every other row. Do I bind off on right side then knit to end, turn over bind off on wrong side and then knit right side and wrong side one time without binding off? Then bind off and continue?

DROPS Design 18.01.2016 kl. 15:19:

Dear Marcy, that's right, you will have to bind off on each side at the beg of every row both from RS and from WS, so that you will bind off on each side every other row. Happy knitting!

Holder det med 6 nøster hvis jeg strikker denne i str M - med "drops Cloud" ?

DROPS Design 03.11.2015 kl. 08:14:

Hej. Ja det ska vara tillräckligt. Här kan du läsa om hur du gör för att byta ut ett garn mot ett annat. Lycka till!

J'aimerais faire le modèle DROPS 76-5 avec la laine Drops Clouds puisque la Highlander est discontinuée. Je voudrais faire la grandeur Medium. Combien de balles de laine Clouds je dois acheter? Merci I would like to knit the DROPS 76-5 with DROPS Clouds quality as the Highlander is discontinued. I would make it in size Medium. How many balls would it take in Clouds? Thank you

DROPS Design 03.02.2015 kl. 09:16:

Chère Mme André, cliquez ici pour calculer la quantité à prévoir dans une qualité équivalente. Bon tricot!

Anna 24.01.2015 - 18:36:

You could try the shop "Stickor o garn" in Sweden. They have 5 balls left.

Catherine Rice 23.01.2015 - 15:13:

I have knitted the front, back and one sleeve, and now have run out of wool. I ordered the amount specified in the pattern, and the tension is correct. The problem is that the wool - Drops Eskimo tweed in silver - has now been discontinued and I have contacted nearly every wool shop in the UK to find it, with no success. Do you have any suggestions? I would be grateful for any advice, as the jumper so far is lovely, but of course unwearable with only one sleeve.

DROPS Design 23.01.2015 kl. 15:26:

Dear Mrs Rice, remember to check requested meterage when using an alternative - see here - You can also contact worldwide shipping stores. Happy knitting!

Hamedeh 09.02.2014 - 12:11:

I have two questions about this pattern 1. what does it mean when it says: "When the piece measures 14 and 24 cm inc 1 st ..." I don't understand what "14 and 24 cm" refers to. 2. what does "each side" and "every other row" mean? Thanks a lot

DROPS Design 10.02.2014 kl. 09:56:

Dear Hamedeh, you inc 1 st each side (i.e. at beg + end of row) when piece measures 14 cm and repeat these inc when it measures 24 cm. Cast off for armhole every other 2 rows means to cast off at the beg of every row each side (from RS then from WS). Happy knitting!

Drops Design 20.01.2011 - 14:24:

Jo da det stemmer, der er 4 valgmuligheder og ærmet i den mindste størrelse skal være længere pga kortere ærmekuppel.
