When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm, divide at inside of leg and finish the piece back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip the legs on the same circular needle). Cast on 1 edge st in each side = 52-58-64 (70-76) sts. When piece measures 18-22-25 (29-34) cm, dec 1 edge st in each side. Put piece aside and knit another leg the same way.

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!

Annette Rasmussen 09.10.2017 - 18:04:

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!

Paola 23.09.2017 - 20:16:

Finito, è proprio carino..non ho capito le indicazioni x la confezione dove dite "Cucire i primi 4 cm dal cappuccio al bordo superiore del bordo da ogni lato..." si parla di cappuccio.... Non ho trovato a cosa riferirlo Grazie e buona domenica

DROPS Design 23.09.2017 kl. 20:26:

Buonasera Paola, abbiamo corretto il testo ed eliminato la parte relativa al cappuccio. Grazie per la segnalazione!

Basia 08.09.2017 - 09:46:

Dzień dobry. Prosze o przetlumaczenie tego wzoru na język polski. Pozdrawiam

DROPS Design 18.10.2017 kl. 18:03:

Witaj Basiu, wzór zostanie przetłumaczony do końca tygodnia. Pozdrawiam

Jana Saatjohann 16.01.2017 - 14:33:

Hallo, muss ich die Maschen am Ende der Rundpasse zwangsläufig abketten oder kann die auch stilllegen und nach Fertigstellung der Blende einfach noch auf beiden Seiten ein paar mit dazu aufnehmen?

DROPS Design 05.04.2017 kl. 10:54:

Liebe Frau Saatjohann, es wird hier abgekettet und dann bei der Halskante Maschen auffassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Theresa 24.08.2016 - 11:28:

Hallo, ich komme an der Stelle nicht weiter, an der man alle Teile auf eine Rundnadel legen soll... um dann den Rundpasse zu stricken ("Alle M. auf eine Rundnadel legen = 144-160-180 (200-220) M") Also den Strampler und die Arme. Sollen die Armmaschen in das vorgesehene Armloch gelegt werden oder erst alle Stramlermaschen und daneben die Armmaschen? mfG

DROPS Design 25.08.2016 kl. 17:39:

Liebe Theresa, die Ärmel kommen an die Stelle, an der für das Armloch abgekettet wurde.

Derek Robertson 26.02.2016 - 22:15:

Thank you, I now understand! It was the x 2 front pieces that made it clear!

Derek Robertson 26.02.2016 - 12:39:

I am enjoying the challenge of the design and am now at the yoke (4th size - 200 stitches). I am making a chart and cannot seem to end up with 72 stitches remaining. The best I can get is 74 and this includes a total of 14 decreases each side of the markers and 6 (not 5) x 2 stitch bind-offs (for balance) and the 2 x 1 stitch bind-off at the neck edge. Hence 14 x 8 = 112 + 14 for the neck edge giving a total of 126. This leaves 74 stitches. Am I missing something or just dim - help?!

DROPS Design 26.02.2016 kl. 15:56:

Dear Mrs Robertson, in 4th size you will dec as follows: for yoke: 8 sts a total of 13 times (= 104 sts dec) + for neckline: (2 sts a total of 5 times + 1 st a total of 2 times) x 2 front pieces (= (2x5 + 1x2)x2= 24 sts dec), so that you have 200-104-24=72 sts. Happy knitting!
