REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm, work diagram M.2 - adjust so that st marked with an arrow is mid front. When diagram M.2 has been worked, work 1 round with off white while at the same time casting off 7 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. st with marker + 3 sts on each side of this st) = 82-94-106-118-130-142 sts remain on needle.

After diagram M.2, work 1 round with off white while at the same time casting off 7 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. st with marker + 3 sts on each side of this st) = 29-29-35-35-41-41 sts remain on needle. The piece now measures approx. 43 cm in all sizes.

Liebes Drops Team, das ist eine wunderschöne und einfache Anleitung. Ich habe den Pullover gestrickt. Allerdings mit Andes. Es hat sehr gut geklappt und mit ein paar individuellen Anpassungen sitzt der Pullover so, wie ich ihn haben wollte. ich habe die Ärmel etwas weiter gestrickt und das in der Passe wieder ausgeglichen. Danke für den tollen Pullover. Er wurde schon viel bewundert.

Bonjour, Je souhaiterai savoir comment faire l’empiècement "Reprendre les manches sur la même aiguille circulaire 8 que le dos et le devant" Je n'ai pas trouvé la vidéo qui pourrait m'aider. Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 02.10.2018 kl. 16:05:

Bonjour Angélique, cette vidéo montre comment reprendre les mailles des manches sur la même aiguille circulaire que le dos et le devant, au-dessus des mailles rabattues pour les emmanchures. Les premiers tours sont parfois un peu plus compliqués à tricoter, mais après quelques tours, c'est plus simple. Bon tricot!

Zur Anleitung von: DROPS / 131 / 17 White Chocolate Ist es richtig, dass nach dem Stricken des Bündchens abgenommen wird? Das erscheint mir sehr ungewöhnlich. Hat der Pulli eine A-Form? Viele Grüße

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 14:57:

Liebe Frau Sasse, es stimmt so, damit die untere Kante die richtige Breite ist, dann wird es nach den Bündchen abgenommen (diese Bündchen sollen auch nicht den Pulli fester ziehen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Johanna 10.12.2017 - 19:27:

Jammer dat u geen antwoord heeft gegeven op mijn vraag

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 12:50:

Hallo Johanna, Je vraag had ik even doorgegeven aan designafdeling. Zodra duidelijk is wat de hoeveelheden garens zijn, zal ik het doorgeven.

Johanna 21.11.2017 - 10:14:

Hoe kan het dat je bij dit model meer Andes nodig hebt dan Eskimo, terwijl Andes veel meer looplengte heeft? Is het aantal bollen niet precies andersom, meer Eskimo dan Andes?

DROPS Design 15.12.2017 kl. 10:37:

Hoi Johanna, Andes wordt verkocht in bollen van 100 gram. De looplenghte is 90m per 100 gram en dus 45m per 50 gram. Daardoor heeft Andes een iets kortere looplengte dan Eskimo.

Taas on ohjeen mukanen lanka eri kun kuvassa. Eikö kukaan tarkasta näitä ennen julkaisua. Onhan se tietysti tyhmää iteltäkin vaan tilata ohjeen mukaan langat, kun ei oo eka kerta ku on väärin. Eli beige pitäisi olla 48 ei 47 😡😡😡

Lene Hangaard 09.12.2015 - 23:33:

Hej Jeg vil gerne strikke denne i cloud, men jeg tænker den brune i cloud bliver for mørk. Kommer der en lys beige i den garn type? :-) Eller vil natur og brun kunne gå? Mvh. Lene

DROPS Design 10.12.2015 kl. 15:17:

Hej Lene. Nej, pt har vi ikke planer om en beige i denne. Men kontakt din garnforretning for hjaelp med den rette kombi og god fornöjelse med den!

Selam 08.12.2015 - 15:42:

Hi how do I adjust so the st with ➡ from M2 is in mid front? thank you

DROPS Design 08.12.2015 kl. 17:33:

Dear Selam, count your number of sts, the st on mid front should be the one with the arrow, then count outwards to the beg of round to know how to beg pattern. Happy knitting!

Astrid Solberg 03.10.2015 - 22:22:

Jeg strikker genseren i Str.M i garn type "Eskimo" rundpinne st7-8 tilsvarer det en 36-38 str.Syntes 128M er så lite og så skal det minskes 20 M etter vrangbord? Vennlig hilsen Astrid.

DROPS Design 06.10.2015 kl. 14:37:

Hej Astrid, hvis du følger opskriften og er sikker på at du har 11 m på 10 cm når du måler strikkefastheden, så får du de mål som modsvarer en str M nederst i måleskitsen. God fornøjelse!

Ann-Kristin 08.12.2014 - 15:00:

Hei. Jeg strikket str M,og er kommet til diagram M3. Jeg får ikke mønsteret til å gå opp etter de to første fellingene (fra 156 til 154 masker). Videre i oppskriften er masketallet halvert etter man skal ha strikket diagram M3, men i følge diagrammer er det bare 6 masker som blir felt når man strikket 2 rette sammen. Kan noen hjelpe meg slik at jeg forstår hva jeg skal gjøre? Ann

DROPS Design 10.12.2014 kl. 13:35:

Hei Ann-Kristin. Du har inden du starter med M.3 156 m. Der er 12 m per gentagelse af M.3, dvs, du gentager mönstret 13 gange paa pinden. Det er vigtigt du strikker de masker sammen som vises i diagrammet og saa strikker videre som diagrammet viser, saa skulle mönstret gaa op - eller du har glemt at tage ind en gang undervejs. Du feller 6 m per gentagelse og med 13 gentagelser bliver det i alt 78 m mindre = 78 m tilbage paa pinden.
