Bei der linken Blende beginne ich das Bündchen mit Randm in Krausrippe, 1 re. im Nacken und wdh. das in jeder Reihe immer im Nacken? Das heißt die Reihe beginnt oder endet im Nacken immer mit 2 rechten Maschen? Und das gleiche bei der rechten Blende? Danke!

DROPS Design 12.11.2015 kl. 20:17:

Ja genau, im Nacken treffen, wenn Sie beide Blenden gestrickt haben, jeweils 1 kraus-re-M aufeinander und daneben liegt 1 M glatt re. Wenn Sie die Blendenteile dann innerhalb 1 Rand-M zusammennähen, ergeben sich somit hinten 2 M re zwischen den je 2 M li, sodass das Rippenmuster dann wieder genau richtig ist.

Jeg strikker oppskrift nr. 135-21. På kanten foran, som er tverr-ribbe, så står det at det skal økes 9 masker på en rad etter 6 cm. Jeg skjønner ikke hvordan jeg skal øke 9 masker UTEN å bryte 2r/2v. Kari

Sarah 20.01.2014 - 23:48:

Hallo, wird M1 glatt rechts gestrickt?

DROPS Design 21.01.2014 kl. 08:15:

Liebe Sarah, ja es wird glatt re gestrickt.

Hei! Kysyisin, mitä tarkoittaa seuraavan kohdan alku eli yksi silmukka? Mikä sen tarkoitus on ja mihin se on tarkoitus virkata? NAPINLÄPISILMU: Virkkaa n. 22-23-24-25-26-27 cm:n pituinen silmukka oikean etureunan alareunaan.

DROPS Design 11.12.2012 kl. 14:14:

Tämä on napinläpisilmu, eli nappi kiinnitetään tähän virkattuun silmukkaan.

Salve, Sto lavorando questo maglione e avendo iniziato da poco le maniche, volevo chiedervi delucidazioni su questa parte della descrizione: "Allo stesso tempo intrecciare per il giro manica (...)". Non capisco cosa voglia dire "intrecciare per il giro manica". Sono una knitter alle prime armi e molte delle terminologie e delle tecniche sono ancora a me sconosciute. Vi ringrazio in anticipo, Di.

DROPS Design 18.05.2012 kl. 14:43:

Scusa per la risposta in ritardo.. Il giro manica è l'arrotondamento della manica in alto, cioè, dove la manica viene attaccata alla giacca. Da una forma migliore alla manica.
