Sehrgeehrte Damen und Herren, Ich habe diese Anleitung schön 3 Jacke gestrickt. 2 Jacke mit Alaska und eine Jacke mit Nepal. Sie sind sehr sehr schön.. Und jetzt stricken ich die 4. Jacke. Aber ich habe wieder vergessen.. Was bedeutet das?: ( , A-1 bis noch 15 M. zu stricken sind, 1. M. in A-1 (damit das Muster vorne überein stimmt), ) Vielen Dank für ihre Hilfe... Mit freundlichen Grüßen Sawnuy

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 09:50:

Liebe Sawnuy, damit das Muster symetrisch wird, muss man am Ende der Hinreihe der ersten Masche in M.1 noch stricken, dann die 14 Blendemaschen - bein den Rückreihen stricken Sie die erste Masche in M.1 dann lesen Sie M.1 links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sawnuy 13.10.2018 - 16:52:

Hallo,kann ich diese Jacke mit Drops Nepal auch stricken? Ich habe schon 2 Jacke mit Alaska gestrickt..Sie sind sehr schön.... und ich möchte nochmal diese Jacke stricken aber mit anderen Drops . Mit freundlichen Grüßen

DROPS Design 11.04.2018 kl. 13:42:

Liebe Evelyn, in der Größe L sollen Sie: 3 M 2 x, 2 M x 1 und 1 Mx 1 auf beiden Seiten abketten, dh Reihe 1 bis 4: die ersten 3 M abketten, R 5 + 6: die ersten 2 M abketten und R 7 + 8: die erste Masche abketten = 18 M werden insgesamt abgekettet (= 9 auf beiden Seiten), es waren 85 M - 18 = 67 M bleiben übrig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jenny 24.11.2015 - 14:43:

Hello again, i have finished knitting the cardigan and it fits everywhee apart from the A1 pattern on the arms and body. It is alot tighter in the pattern places. What do you think has gone wrong? I didn't think my tension had changed. Thanks you

DROPS Design 24.11.2015 kl. 15:20:

Dear Jenny, when working stranded pattern, your work may look tighter if the strands were a bit tight from WS - blocking your piece may help - Contact your DROPS store, they will give you tips & advices for individidual finishing. Happy knitting!

Sarah 18.11.2015 - 20:35:

Hi drops, i have reached 20cm on sleeve, i am just curious how to work the pattern and increases? Surely increasing will throw the pattern out?

DROPS Design 19.11.2015 kl. 09:16:

Dear Sarah, the st with the arrow in diagram should be the middle st of the sleeve (mid on top). Count from this st/square in diagram where to start diagram for your size. And work the inc st on mid under sleeve following diagram. Happy knitting!

Jenny 18.11.2015 - 12:43:

Hello again, I am completely confused about how to knit the shawl collar, i've read and re read and still no clue, please help. Thank you.

DROPS Design 18.11.2015 kl. 17:32:

Dear Jenny, pick up sts from RS along neck from marker on right front piece, along neck to marker on left front piece, adjust number of sts and work in rib K2/P2 with 2 sts in garter sts on each side until collar measures 5 cm. Then inc 1 st in each of the middle P2 sections seen from RS (you will have rib K2/P2 on each side and K2/P3 x 12 in the middle of collar. Then work some short rows (leave 10 sts unworked at the end of each row until there are 40 sts unworked each side) then work 1 row over all sts and cast off. Happy knitting!

Jenny 14.11.2015 - 22:18:

Hello, I have reached A1 and I need to know what to do on the WS. Do I just read the pattern as row 1 RS row 2 WS row 3 RS row 4 WS? Or do I just purl the WS like I have from the start? Thank you

DROPS Design 16.11.2015 kl. 09:33:

Dear Jenny, see answer below to read more about diagrams. 1 square in diagram = 1 st x 1 row, you will also work pattern from WS. Happy knitting!

Jenny 14.11.2015 - 17:15:

Hello, this is my first pattern with a chart. What do I do on the WS? Thanks.
