I would like to use a cotton/linen blend yard for this jacket. (Aran 8 wpi) Do you have any size suggestions / instructions for this weight? Thank you! I love this pattern and want to use the yarn I have.

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 11:43:

Dear Mrs Smallwood, you can use here DROPS Bomull-Lin, please find here all relevant informations about alternatives. Happy knitting!

Yvonne 20.12.2017 - 23:38:

Heb patroon exact gevolgd, steeds gemeten conform aanwijzingen, steekproef was goed etc. Toch was het vest al snel te kort en te wijd. En met het dragen werd dit steeds erger: het werd steeds korter en wijder! Ik kan het vest helaas niet meer dragen, het is helemaal uit verhouding. Ik heb ook poncho 133-4 gemaakt en daarbij gebeurt dit ook, alleen bij een poncho komen de verhoudingen minder precies, dus dan maar korter en wijder. Maar hoe kan het dat deze wol zo reageert na correcte verwerking?

Hallo Yvonne, Dat is erg jammer om te horen. Voor klachten over het garen kun je het beste even contact opnemen met het verkooppunt waar je het garen hebt gekocht. Zij kunnen je eventueel verder helpen.

Lene Thorkelin 24.09.2017 - 10:31:

Jeg bryder mig ikke om bouclé garn. Kan I anbefale en anden garntype til denne model?

DROPS Design 27.09.2017 kl. 08:19:

Hei Lene. DROPS Alpaca Boucle tilhører garngruppe C og du kan velge andre kvaliteter vi har i samme garngruppe. Om du ønsker ensfarget ullkvalitet kan du velge DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk, DROPS Nepal, DROPS Big Merino, DROPS Air og DROPS Alaska eller multifarget ved DROPS Big Delight. Du kan også velge mellom DROPS Paris og DROPS Bomull-Lin om du ønsker bomullsgarn. Bare gå inn på oversikten over garn og velg kvalitet og farger, men HUSK å overholde strikkefastheten som er oppgitt i oppskriften. God Fornøyesle!

Gina Von Staden 18.04.2016 - 10:15:

Danke vielmals. Alles Gute, bis zur nächsten dummen Frage. Gina

Gina Von Staden 17.04.2016 - 19:18:

Meine Frage: Auf der Zeichnung sieht es so aus, als würde die Schalblende zum Schluss mit verkürzten Reihen gestrickt. In der Anleitung finde ich das aber nicht. Danke für Ihre Antwort. Ich finde Ihre Webpräsenz einfach super. Gina

DROPS Design 18.04.2016 kl. 09:02:

Liebe Gina, die Abschrägung kommt nicht von verkürzten Reihen, sondern vom Abketten: "... Dann zu Beginn jeder Hin-R 2-2-2-0-0-0 x 5 M und 1-1-1-3-3-3 x 6 M abketten."

Hanne Gunnertoft Pedersen 29.03.2016 - 20:14:

Har gået i min trøje hver dag, siden den blev færdig 😊

Hanne Gunnertoft Pedersen 19.03.2016 - 20:38:

Er vildt glad for min trøje. Skulle lige vænne mig til st strikke i bouclegarnet, og monteringen var hæslig, da jeg ikke kunne se maskerne. Men er glad for den færdige trøje 😊

Lise Levesque 18.03.2016 - 19:17:

Bonjour je suis entrain de faire la veste de grandeur large, j'ai diviser l'ouvrage de 49 mailles de chaque côté et de 88 mailles pour le dos. C'est la mon problème je ne comprend pas comment ugment les 45 mailles de chaque côté entre le 49 et 88 mailles sans mettre les 49 mailles en attentes. Je vous remercie de m'éclairer.

DROPS Design 21.03.2016 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Mme Levesque, quand on divise l'ouvrage à 50 cm (en taille L), il faut mettre les mailles des devants sur des fils ou arrêts de mailles puis continuer sur les mailles du dos en montant les 45 m pour les manches à la fin de chacun des 2 premiers rangs - voir vidéo ci-dessous pour monter les manches. Bon tricot!

Anita Thon 17.01.2016 - 19:34:

Beklager spørsmålet om stolpestrikking av jakken. Skulle har lest videre først. AWThon

Anita Thon 17.01.2016 - 18:13:

Når en i begynnelden strikker stolpem 12 m 1 r/1 v og 3 m r og 3 v, må en da i slutten, på motsatt side ikke strikke disse 18 masker motsatt i rettningen? 3 v 3 r og 12 masker rille?
