Scusa, io sono nuova di Drops. Nello schema M1, i ferri in cui si fanno solo maglie diritte, sono i ferri del rovescio del lavoro o sono dei ferri diritti?

DROPS Design 26.11.2017 kl. 12:07:

Buongiorno Margaret. I ferri pari del diagramma, vengono lavorati sul rovescio del lavoro e deve lavorare le maglie a rovescio. Buon lavoro!

Hvor mange masker skal slå op til str. M hvis den skal være med lange ærmer?

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 14:46:

Hej, For hver 10 cm du vil have ærmerne længere skal du slå 18 m mere op, men sørg for at det stemmer med antal masker i en rapport. God fornøjelse!

Bonjour, j'ai vraiment envie de ce boléro mais je pêche au 7eme rang. Après plusieurs essais, je me retrouve toujours avec deux mailles en trop... Pouvez vous m'aider?

DROPS Design 06.05.2016 kl. 16:09:

Bonjour Mme Ladriere, au rang 7, vous devez tricoter la dernière m de M.1A ens avec les 2 premières m de M1B (le jeté remplace la m dans M1A), puis quand vous répétez M1B, tricotez les 2 dernières m de M1B avec la 1ère m du M1B suivant (puis de M1C). Voir aussi la vidéo ci-dessous. Bon tricot!

Sliter med å komme igang på dette mønsteret etter perlestrikken. M1A går bra, men når man fortsetter med B blir det da to kast etter hverandre??? Kan du skrive hvordan omgangen strikkes?

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 14:54:

Hej. Nej det blir inte två kast efter varandra. När du stickat M1A stickar du (från rätsidan): 1 r, kast, "ta 1 m løst av p som om den strikkes rett, 1 r, løft den løse m over", 1 r, 2 rett sammen, kast. Detta är alltså M1B som du stickat nu. M1C stickas: 1 r, kast, " ta 1 m løst av p som om den strikkes rett, 1 r, løft den løse m over", 1 r. Lycka till!

Tara 11.06.2015 - 16:53:

Can you tell me how the sizes (S-M-L etc) relate to UK or US dress sizes? Thank you.

DROPS Design 11.06.2015 kl. 18:21:

Dear Tara, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements in cm taken flat from side to side, compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Happy knitting!

Bodil Engen Lund 13.08.2014 - 21:41:

Takk for tilbakemelding. Har rukket opp omgang 7 noen ganger, uff. Kan du skrive maske for maske hvordan omgangen skal strikkes. Og hvilke masker som skal repeteres.

DROPS Design 14.08.2014 kl. 16:41:

Hei Bodil. F.eks. str S = 59 m. Raekke 7: 5 perlestrikk, M.1A: 2 r, 1 kast, ta 1 m løst av p som om den strikkes rett, 2 rett sammen, løft den løse m (M.1B er begyndt i midten her), 1 kast, 3 r, 1 kast, ta 1 m løst av osv, 1 kast osv. Dette strikker du til du har 10 masker tilbage (5 til mönster og 5 til perlestrik), strik nu 1 kast, ta 1 m løst av p osv (M.1C er begyndt i midten af denne), 1 kast og slut af med 2 r og 5 perlestrikk. Haaber du kan komme videre saadan :-)

Bodil Engen Lund 12.08.2014 - 22:27:

Glemte å spørre om mønsteret i omgang 7 skulle deles opp, for at det skulle gå opp i antall masker?

DROPS Design 13.08.2014 kl. 17:48:

Hej Bodil. Nej, det behöves ikke. Se mit svar herunder.

Bodil Engen Lund 12.08.2014 - 21:21:

Har begynt på boleroen og kommet til omgang 7. Sålangt er oppskriften grei. Men hvordan strikker man omgang 7? Er det fortsatt M1A 1 gang, M1B som strikkes til det gjenstår 9 masker og så M1C + 5 masker i perlestrikk?

DROPS Design 13.08.2014 kl. 17:48:

Hej Bodil. Ja, det er fortsat det samme. M.1B bliver delt og strikket i forlaengelse af A, men fortsaettelsen kommer helt automatisk naar du gentager B og ogsaa naar du skal slutte af med C. Haaber du forstaar hvad jeg mener :-)

Paula 05.05.2014 - 12:57:

Hi--in addition to my previous question, I should have added that I am on the first row of the pattern.

Paula 05.05.2014 - 12:55:

Could you please tell me the first stitch and last stitch of M1.B? thanks

DROPS Design 05.05.2014 kl. 13:34:

Dear Paula, 1st row in M.1B is worked as follows : K1 then YO, slip 1 as if to K, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog, YO. Happy knitting!
