There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 (diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS, YOs on 1st and 3rd row are worked as shown on 2nd and 4th row).

KNITTING TIP:
Always finish with last row in diagram M.1 before working rows in garter st.

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the weight of the yarn all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.

Hallo! Ich verstehe bei M1 die erste Reihe nicht. Soll ich als erste Masche gleich einen Umschlag machen, dann 2x zwei Maschen zusammen stricken und dann am Ende nochmal einen Umschlag? Und noch eine Frage: Bei Muster steht man soll die Umschläge in R1 und R3 stricken wie gezeigt in R2 und R4. Das verstehe ich nicht. In R2 und R4 gibt's doch gar keine Umschläge. Danke für Antworten! Sara

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 10:14:

Liebe Sara, die Umschläge sind bei Reihe 1 und 3, bei der 2. und 4. Reihe werden Sie gestrickt, wie im Diagram gezeigt = der 1. Umschlag in M.1 (1. R) wird links bei der Rückreihe und der 2. Umschlag in M.1 (1. R) wird rechts bei der Rückreihe gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Salve, vorrei realizzare questo bellissimo modello, ma non riesco in alcun modo a decifrare il diagramma M1...credo ci sia un errore...il doppio gettato presente nella leggenda dov'è segnato?...ho fatto varie prove, ma mi ritrovo con un reticolato ad x invece che a fori rettangolari...grazie

DROPS Design 15.03.2017 kl. 16:05:

Buongiorno Manuela. Lo trova nella terza riga del diagramma, dopo le prime 2 m lavorate insieme a diritto. Buon lavoro!

Jennifer 06.05.2014 - 11:55:

I confirm this is a beautiful model - I made it with Fabel long print + Vivaldi and it is gorgeous !

DROPS Design 14.03.2014 - 13:42:

Quand les 4 m point mousse sont rabattues pour l'encolure, on continue sans ces 4 m point mousse jusqu'à la fin. On relèvera ensuite les mailles autour de l'encolure (= au-dessus de cette partie sans les 4 m point mousse) pour le col. Bon tricot!

Coureaud Loredana 11.09.2013 - 19:02:

REbonjour. Je me permets de revenir vers vous car je suis tjr dans le brouillard.Vous dites " à 60-63-65-68-70-73 cm (cf taille), on rabat les mailles côté encolure, à ce niveau-là, on n'a plus les 4 m point mousse côté encolure » (voir msg precedent),mais l’explication dit apres avoir rabattu de «  continuer en point fantaisie M1 au point mousse de CHAQUE coté jusquàa ce que l’ouvrage mesure 68-71-74-77-80-83cm;terminer ensuite au point mousse » . Merci pour votre patience.

DROPS Design 18.09.2013 kl. 10:28:

Bonjour Mme Coureaud, votre question a été transmise à notre équipe de styliste, je reviens vers vous dès que possible. Merci pour votre compréhension.

Coureaud Loredana 11.09.2013 - 15:11:

Bonjour. Pour l’encolure,au début on rabat les 4m point mousse mais l’explication demande de poursuivre en point fantaisie M.1 avec toujours les 4m au point mousse?? alors qu’on relève les mailles autour de l’encolure pour le col.... Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 11.09.2013 kl. 16:47:

Bonjour Mme Coureaud, On tricote le devant gauche avec 4 m point mousse de chaque côté, puis à 60-63-65-68-70-73 cm (cf taille), on rabat les mailles côté encolure, à ce niveau-là, on n'a plus les 4 m point mousse côté encolure. Bon tricot!

Coureaud 23.08.2013 - 13:35:

Bonjour. Concernant le devant gauche ,lorsqu’il faut rabattre coté encolure,faut’il reconstituer les 4m (point mousse) demandées au fur et a mesure? Il y aura des « escaliers »? Dans l’image je n’arrive pas a apercevoir comment c’est fait... Merci de votre reponse que j’èspere rapide.

DROPS Design 23.08.2013 kl. 16:32:

Bonjour Mme Coureaud, pour l'encolure devant, on rabat les 4 m point mousse dès la 1ère "dim" d'encolure. Par la suite, on relève les mailles tout autour de l'encolure pour tricoter le col. Bon tricot!

Prachtig patroon, maar ik heb een vraag;op de foto zijn de zijnaden duidelijk open. Dit staat niet in de werkwijze, en kun je dit ook op 2 nld. breien? Gr. Beppie Morshinkhof drops 138-16

DROPS Design 15.08.2013 kl. 16:02:

Je breit dit model heen en weer op de nld, dus je kan gerust een rechte naald gebruiken. De zijnaden zijn open. Dit staat in de beschrijving onder AFWERKING: Naai de schoudernaden samen in de buitenste lusjes van de buitenste st. Naai de mouwen in het lijf en naai de naad onder de mouwen dicht (de zijkanten van de poncho blijven open).

Til model 138 - 16: Jeg kan ikke helt forstå diagrammet for den 4. af tingene indgår ikke umiddelbart i opskriften og da det er langhåret garn vil jeg helst ikke strikke forkert. skal jeg bare overse dette eller er der en rettelse til diagrammet jeg skal følge? Med venlig hilsen Helle Lykke

DROPS Design 16.11.2012 kl. 09:47:

Du kan bare følge diagrammet her på nettet! God fornøjelse!
