Har lige strikket denne i den mindste str. Jeg brugte "kun" 250 gr (oplysning til dem der køber garn til denne) Derud over er der fejl i opskriften til sidst når du skal lukke af. Der står jeg har 144 m på pinden (rigtigt) men når jeg har taget ind til raglan (40 m ialt) og til hals (12 m ialt). Det giver 92 m tilsidst og ikke 52 som der står i opskriften. Vær venligst opmærksom på denne fejl !!

Trisha 23.05.2019 - 13:26:

Ok so I am at the divide at inside of leg and finish piece back and forth on needle, what exactly does that mean? Am I continuing on 2 double pointed needles? If so, wont that make 2 flaps on the leg rather than one circular leg? I am not very experienced with knitting so it may be a very easy answer and I am not smart enough to get it Haha. Please help!

DROPS Design 23.05.2019 kl. 14:16:

Hi Trisha. Not at all, this isn't obvious to a beginner. You can continue with whatever needle you're using, but when you get to the end of round, cast on 1 new stitch (= edge stitch), turn and work back from the wrong side. Once you're back at the beginning, cast on a new stitch (= edge stitch), turn and work from the right side again. Continue working back and forth like this (without casting on at the end, as you only do this the first time) until piece measures 17-18-21 (24-28) cm. You will now have a small vent/split at the top of the leg. Remember to purl all stitches when working from the wrong side, so that you are still working stocking stitch. Happy knitting

Trisha 22.05.2019 - 02:26:

Trying to ask a question but it says I'm using forbidden words, I dont know what words I can and cant use

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 09:22:

Dear Trisha, Try please to reword your question - could you please tell us in Facebook which words you were trying to use? Thank you!

Dejlig nem og hurtig at lave..

Duge 17.11.2018 - 15:03:

Merci pour ce joli modèle que j'ai réalisé 2fois

Steffi 15.11.2018 - 20:07:

Ich komme bei der Blende nicht weiter. Wo genau an der rechten Seite muss ich die Maschen aufnehmen?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Steffi, die Maschen werden am Vorderteil aufgeffast, sofort nach den 4 abgeketteten Maschen am Anfang Strampfler bis zur halsausschnitt - beim linken Vorderteil fangen Sie am Halsausschnitt bis zu den 4 abgeketteten Maschen beim Strampfler. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gina G 09.02.2018 - 11:17:

When I divide the inside leg do I cast on 1, knit the row, turn, cast on 1, purl the row, then stocking stitch until it is 25cm (3rd size)? What method of cast on 1 do you recommend?

DROPS Design 09.02.2018 kl. 13:34:

Dear Gina G, you can inc 1 st at the end of each row with kfb (see video or increase 1 st by casting on 1 st at the end of next both rows using this technique. Happy knitting!

Habe für mein erstes Enkelkind den Strampler im Herbst fertiggestellt, die Anleitung ist mega einfach und doch ist mir bei der Abnahme der Rundpasse ein Fehler passiert. Das Ausbügeln ging dann aber doch schnell und der Strampler sieht supersüss aus. Da es derzeit in meiner Familie Babys regnet bin ich nun mit dem dritten Strampler angefangen, die Mütter freuen sich. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Anleitung!

Anna 11.12.2017 - 20:34:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage zum Bein, denn ich verstehe den Satz bei der ersten Größe nicht: "Nach 6cm auf beiden Seiten der Markierung je 1 M. aufnehmen. Total 4 Mal alle 3cm = 50M. Nach 16cm die Arbeit bei der Markierung teilen". Ist damit 6cm bzw. 16 cm ab Anschlag gemeint oder 6cm nach der 1R. links und dann 16cm nach der letzten Aufnahme, also dann insgesamt 38cm ab Anschlag bis zur Teilung? Vielen Dank für die Antwort im Voraus!

DROPS Design 12.12.2017 kl. 08:04:

Liebe Anna, die 6 bzw 16 cm sind ab Anschlag gemessen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg har et problem med at se, hvor jeg skal starte forkanten... i bunden , det ser lidt besynderligt ud... jeg har spurgt, der hvor jeg købte garnet, men de kunne heller ikke se det, så nu spørger jeg jer... vh Annette Rasmussen

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 12:24:

Hej Annette, forkanten starter der hvor du har lukket 4 masker af i hver side mod midt foran. God fornøjelse!
