Liebes Drops-Team, was meinen Sie bei den Vorderteilen mit: incl. 1 RM auf beiden Seiten und 8 Blendenmaschen? Wie werden die 8 Blendenmaschen gestrickt? Es geht doch weiter mit 2 RM in Krausrippe gegen die Seite und 2M Krausrippe gegen die Mitte. Freue mich auf eine Antwort. LG Margit

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 10:28:

Liebe Margit, die 8 Blendemaschen werden glatt mit 2 M Kraus rechts gegen die Mitte gestrickt (= Linkes Vorderteil: Hinreihe= 8 Ma rechts, Rückreihe= 2 M rechts, 6 M li). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hanne Hedsted 07.08.2014 - 11:04:

Jeg mangler et mønsterdiagram så jeg kan se, hvor mange masker, der strikkes med lyseblåt og hvidt garn.

DROPS Design 07.08.2014 kl. 11:35:

Hej Hanne. Der er ikke et mønsterdiagram til denne jakke. Garnet (Muskat Soft) var et multifarvet garn - ligesom Fabel, så mønstret er dannet med garnet og ikke med et diagram til mønstret.

Ana Ibañez 15.12.2013 - 16:55:

Me encanta esta chaqueta, pero no está la secuencia del dibujo, el cambio de colores. ¿podrían subsanar este error?. Gracias

Rut 04.04.2013 - 11:37:

Garnet bildar mönster av sig självt, det har påpekats flera gånger!

Svensson 03.04.2013 - 20:56:

Hvor søren er mønsteret ? Jeg kan se, på andre kommentarer, at garnet gør mønsteret, men det kan vist ikke passe, mønsteret er jo meget tydeligt ?

DROPS Design 04.04.2013 kl. 17:50:

Det er garnet der danner mönstret. Pröv at se paa garnkortet til Muskat Soft, saa ser du hvad der menes

H.welboren 25.01.2013 - 12:12:

Op de foto staat de voorhals schuin afgetekend, ik heb 1 voorkant klaar, maar dat loopt middenvoor recht, is dit goed

DROPS Design 06.02.2013 kl. 18:54:

Ja, dat klopt. Als je het vest gaat knopen, dan trekt het middenvoor schuin.

Mary Goggin 02.01.2013 - 21:15:

Hi there. When the pattern says to work 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the mid front where exactly does this mean? I have cast on 106 stitches for the third size and am not sure where the two garter stitches should go. Also, the 2 garter stitches towards the side -does this mean at the side edge? Thanks for your help. Regards, Mary

DROPS Design 09.01.2013 kl. 10:18:

Dear Mrs Goggin, with 106 sts for 3rd size, you will work so : 2 sts in garter st, st st over the next 102 sts and finish with 2 sts in garter sts. Happy knitting !

Gudrun 01.11.2012 - 19:10:

No charts: yarn is manycolored

Maureen Pratt 01.11.2012 - 15:35:

Where are the charts for fair isle

DROPS Design 13.11.2012 kl. 12:45:

Hi Maureen, there is no fair isle pattern, the pattern comes from the yarn.

BERNATEAU Marianne 05.10.2012 - 14:48:

SI je comprends bien l'explication qud l'ouvrage est monté le bas se compose devant[4 rgs de mousse+21cm d'une m mousse]+dos 4 rgs de mousse+[21cm d'une m mousse+4 rgs de mousse] Peut être si l'on tricote 4m mousse comme m de lisière jusqu'à la partie A on verra moins la différence

DROPS Design 08.10.2012 kl. 11:06:

Chère Madame Bernateau, c'est tout à fait ainsi que l'on procède. Toutefois, 2 m point mousse peuvent être suffisante pour avoir la même hauteur que les 4 rangs point mousse. Bon tricot !
