Hallo, ich würde den Poncho gerne ein gutes Stück länger stricken; ca auf Kniehöhe. Würde das gehen, einfach nur länger stricken oder müsste er dann unten weiter werden, also mit mehr Maschen arbeiten. Doppelte Garnmenge würde wohl reichen?

Liebe Silva, leider können wir nicht jeder unserer Anleitung nach jedem Geschmack anpassen. Gerne können Sie sich von anderen ähnlichen Modellen inspirieren - Ihr DROPS Laden wird Ihnen auch gerne damit helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo! Toller Poncho! Habe nur die Anleitung nicht ganz verstanden.. Muss ich die Abnahme nur ein einziges Mal machen, oder dann in die Höhe alle 6 cm?! Danke und Lg

DROPS Design 16.05.2016 kl. 12:30:

Liebe Ingrid, Sie machen die Abnahmen alle 6 cm, je nach Größe 7-8-9 Mal.

Inge 12.11.2013 - 16:55:

Maar je kan toch gewoon doorbreien op je rondbreinaald en dan heb je ineens een gesloten poncho en moet je hem nadien niet meer dichtnaaien???

DROPS Design 13.11.2013 kl. 15:18:

Hoi Inge. Dat is inderdaad wel mogelijk. Niet iedereen willen alleen in de rondte breien, dus daarom hebben wij ook gekozen voor een patroon waar je heen en weer kan breien. Je mag natuurlijk altijd zelf aanpassen als je dat wilt.

Inge 12.11.2013 - 12:13:

Hallo Waarom moet er heen en weer gebreid worden op de rondbreinaald en nadien aaneengezet? Waarom mag er niet ineens een gesloten ponch o gebreid worden op de rondbreinaald? Vriendelijke groet

DROPS Design 12.11.2013 kl. 12:53:

Hoi Inge. Je kan veel meer steken kwijt op een rondbreinaald - en dat lukt niet altijd op een rechte nld.
