Potete fare un video tutorial FONDAMENTALE sul catching long floats, ovvero sul portarsi dietro il filo nel fair isle? Grazie!

Susie 15.01.2018 - 10:19:

Hej! Kan man byta ut garnet mot något annat garn och vad rekomenderar ni då?

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 14:26:

Du kan byta till ett annat garn som ingår i samma garngrupp (B). Till exempel DROPS Lima eller Puna kunde vara bra alternativ.

Jette Jensen 11.08.2017 - 18:40:

Hej Vil det være ok at strikke denne trøje i Drops Puna? Hvad vil det betyde for det færdige resultat? Jeg synes desværre, at karisma kradser. Hilsen Jette

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 16:13:

Hei Jette. Karisma har en litt bedre formstabilitet enn Puna, men du vil få en mykere genser. Du må regne med å kjøpe litt mer garn enn anvist i oppskriften og husk å sjekke strikkefastheten. God Fornøyelse!

Anita Knudsen Kavli 27.06.2017 - 13:28:

Hei. Jeg strikker etter oppskrift Susan by Drops Design Drops 135-5. Har kommet til bærestk hvor det står. Sett 1 merke midt bak, strikk frem til merket, herfra starter omg. Videre! Hva skal jeg gjøre her? Forstår ikke mønsteret. Kan dere hjelpe?

DROPS Design 27.06.2017 kl. 14:02:

Hei Anita. Når du har satt på ermene på samme pinne som bolen så starter du å strikke på bakstykket, men først setter du et merke (merketråd eller en maskemarkør) midt bak. Strikk til merket, merket er nå starten for omgangene til bærestykket (= midt bak). Nå følger du oppskriften: Strikk 1 omgang rett med koksgrå SAMTIDIG som det felles 10-16-8-10-12-18 m jevnt fordelt = 306-324-360-378-396-414 m...osv. God fornøyelse med denne flotte genseren!

Si, l'istruzione è: Proseguire lavorando 7 m a m rasata in più ad ogni giro, vuol dire che deve lavorare ferri accorciati e ogni volta lavorare 7 maglie in più prima di girare il lavoro, finché non ha lavorato 70-70-70-84-84-84 m a ferri accorciati. Quindi significa che devo fare 10 giri Con i ferri accorciati nella parte posteriore?

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 11:37:

Buongiorno Monica. Sì esatto, sono 10 righe a ferri accorciati sulla parte posteriore. Buon lavoro!

Monica 10.04.2017 - 10:37:

L'aumento a ferri accorciati alla fine dello sprone (e prima del collo) deve essere fatto solamente una volta giusto? Grazie.

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 10:50:

Buongiorno Monica. Se l’istruzione a cui fa riferimento è: Proseguire lavorando 7 m a m rasata in più ad ogni giro, vuol dire che deve lavorare ferri accorciati e ogni volta lavorare 7 maglie in più prima di girare il lavoro, finché non ha lavorato 70-70-70-84-84-84 m a ferri accorciati. Se invece l’istruzione è quella del paragrafo COLLO: … allo stesso tempo aumentare 16-16-16-12-12-12 m, questo aumento va fatto una volta sola. Ci riscriva se ancora in difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Annalisa 26.02.2017 - 09:14:

Cosa si intende per TENSIONE VERTICALE e quindi controllarla e eventualmente correggerla?

DROPS Design 26.02.2017 kl. 10:05:

Buongiorno Annalisa. Per tensione verticale si intende il numero di ferri necessari per avere 10 cm in verticale. In questo caso 28 ferri a maglia rasata misurati dopo aver lavato e bloccato il campione. Deve lavorare con la misura dei ferri che le consentono di raggiungere la tensione indicata. Buon lavoro!

Noirot 04.02.2017 - 23:03:

Bonjour,est ce que je suis obligé de prendre des aiguilles à double pointes,pourquoi ne pas prendre que l'aiguille circulaire? Excusez moi je suis débutante

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 10:05:

Bonjour Mme Noirot, les aiguilles doubles pointes vont être utilisées pour les manches, vous pouvez également choisir de les tricoter en magic loop (cf vidéo). Bon tricot!

Ingfrid Fjelde 03.02.2017 - 22:26:

Oisann, så det nå ....

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:28:

Hei Ingfrid. Flot! :)

Ingfrid Fjelde 03.02.2017 - 22:24:
