VERONIQUE 28.07.2019 - 16:25:

Bonjour, je suis entrain de tricoter la capuche; pour la taille 3, il est dit de rabattre après 25 cm de hauteur; cette dimension est prise au niveau du milieu du dos ou sur le coté de la bordure,là où il y a les rangs raccourcis??? merci pour cette précision.

DROPS Design 29.07.2019 kl. 17:36:

Bonjour Veronique! Cette dimension est prise là où il y a les rangs raccourcis (au bord). Bon tricot!

Millie 26.05.2019 - 10:17:

Meet ik het voorpand aan de kant van de voorbies of aan de andere kant. Door de verkorte is de voorbies kant namelijk langer dan de andere kant. Dankjewel!

DROPS Design 31.05.2019 kl. 16:23:

Dag Millie,

Je meet deze inderdaad niet over de voorbies maar meer aan de zijkant.

Sadie 08.05.2019 - 23:26:

Im still quite new to aspects of knitting and so, this may sound like a silly question but, what is meant by band sts? Ive tried looking online but dont know whats right.

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 11:09:

Dear Sadie, the band stitches are the stitches on the side of the jacket towards opening, where you will work buttonholes (right front piece) and then sew buttons (left front piece), - these stitches are worked in garter stitch, depending on the size you will work 24-26 or 28 sts in garter stitch for the front bands. Happy knitting!

Kerstin Lundkvist 03.05.2019 - 10:55:

Hej och tack för ditt snabba svar! Jag undrar ska jag sticka ett avigt varv mellan ökningarna?

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 11:57:

Hei Kerstin. Ja, du strikker 1 pinne fra retten og øker på slutten av denne, så strikker du 1 pinne fra vrangen (ingen øknigner), så strikker du 1 pinne fra retten og øker på slutten av denne. God fornøyelse

Kerstin Lundkvist 02.05.2019 - 21:05:

Hej! Har fråga om framstycket, när jag satt 24 maskor på en tråd: ”läggs det upp 2 nya m i slutet på v från rätsidan (mot halsen), upprepa ökningen på nästa v mot halsen” . Jag undrar hur? Ska jag öka från avigsidan, hur? Eller sticka avigt v o rätt v och öka då? Tack på förhand!

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 07:51:

Hei Kerstin. Du skal legge opp " i slutet på v från rätsidan (mot halsen)". Dette skal gjentas på neste pinne fra rettsiden. Du legger opp på samme måte som når du legger opp på starten av arbeidet, slik: . God fornøyelse

Viviann 28.04.2019 - 20:42:

Do not understand where to put the marker? “When piece measures 27-29-33 (37-40) cm, insert a marker = mid on top of shoulder. ” Insert a marker, but where? At the beginning of the row? After a certain amount of stitches?

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 11:26:

Dear Viviann, you insert the marker on this row, between stitches, so that it can help you to measure the length from marker. Happy knitting!

Zee 21.03.2019 - 06:56:

When working the left front, the short rows...With W.S. Facing I knitted 26 stitches garter stitch,turned and returned then with W.S. Facing I knitted 26 stitches, garter stitch THEN continued with purl until the last 13 which I knit in garter stitch , and turn then back.....garter x 13, purl in middle then 26 garter......please tell me where I went wrong. I've noticed that the outer side in stocking stitch is becoming longer than in inner band of garter stitch, is this correct. Thank you .

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 09:49:

Dear Zee, the short rows over the 26 front band stitches should be repeated every 4 cm to compensate the difference of height when working garter stitch and stocking stitch. After you have worked the 2 rows over the 26 sts only, continue for 4 cm as before then repeat the short rows. Happy knitting!

Christine 12.03.2019 - 10:41:

Liebes Garnstudio-Team, ich habe diese Anleitung für meine kleine Tochter verwendet und habe mich in dieses Jäckchen verliebt. Jetzt ist sie größer geworden (trägt ungefährt 116). Können Sie mir ein Tipp geben, wie ich die Anleitung auf die entsprechende Größe umrechnen kann. Viele Grüße Christine

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 12:28:

Liebe Christine, leider könnnen wir nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen, gerne bekommen Sie weitere Hilfe von Ihrem DROPS Laden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annette Wiegers 01.03.2019 - 15:10:

Herhaal dit meerderen in de volgende nld langs de hals aan de goede kant = 64-69-77 (91-103) st op de nld. Brei 1 nld aan de verkeerde kant. Moet je die ( voor mij) 69 in een keer 69 meerderen? Ik snap dit gedeelte niet.

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 21:00:

Dag Annette,

Je herhaalt dit meerderen van 2 steken nogmaals (dus 2 keer 2 steken en dan heb je 69 steken op de naald.
