Tiziana 15.03.2018 - 16:05:

Bonjour! j'aime bien ce model, mais je porte une taille xs. Est-ce que tricoter deux mailles en moins de la taille S sera une bonne idée? Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Tiziana, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. Vous pouvez ajuster à votre taille à l'aide des explications et des mesures que vous souhaitez sur la base de celles des explications. Pour toute assistance complémentaire, n'hésitez pas à contacter le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine ou à demander de l'aide sur un forum de tricot. Bon tricot!

Christine 10.11.2017 - 11:47:

Bonjour, Je tricote la taille S. J'ai fini une manche. Lorsque J'ai atteint les 47cm de haut. totale, j'ai rabattu 1x3m+1x2m+3x1m. J'ai rabattu 2m de chaque côté 6x au total jusqu'à ce que l'ouvrage mesure 56cm. Est-ce correct? Ou est ce que je devais rabattre 2m de chaque côté 1x et continuer à tricoter jusqu'à 56cm? Merci beaucoup pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 10.11.2017 kl. 13:14:

Bonjour Christine, c'est bien ainsi qu'il faut faire, quand la manche mesure 56 cm, rabattez alors 1 x 3 m de chaque côté et rabattez les mailles restantes. Bon tricot!

Christine 27.10.2017 - 09:25:

Bonjour, Je viens de terminer le devant gauche. J'ai éffectué les rangs raccourcis. Pour quelle raison doit on effectuer ces rangs? Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 27.10.2017 kl. 10:09:

Bonjour Christine, les rangs raccourcis à la fin du devant gauche sont pour le col châle que l'on tricote jusqu'à la moitié de l'encolure dos. Quand le devant droit sera terminé, on assemble les mailles rabattues des 2 parties du col entre elles, puis on coud le col le long de l'encolure dos. Bon tricot!

Margreet Van Scherpenzeel 12.09.2017 - 15:28:

Kunt u mij zeggen waarom dit patroon met rondbreinaald gebreid wordt?

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 12:56:

Hallo Margreet, Het voordeel van breien met rondbreinaalden is dat je geen zijnaden hebt, met name bij dikker garen is dat mooier. Je kunt het patroon natuurlijk ook met rechte naalden breien als je dat prettiger vindt. In deze link vind je informatie over hoe je een patroon aan kunt passen om te breien met rechte naalden.

Heather 13.08.2016 - 20:04:

Just working on this wonderful pattern now in a nice plum color. My question is the short row for the collar size 3xl the pattern reads "* Work 1 ridge over all sts (= 2 rows K).On next row from WS, K 14-14-14-16-16-16 sts, turn and K back *. Repeat from *-* until piece measures 7-7-8-8-9-9 cm from where shoulder was cast off (short side). " so on the WS I always work 16 sts turn and work back? for 9 cm It has been a while since i have worked short rows Thanks for the help Heather

DROPS Design 15.08.2016 kl. 10:58:

Dear Heather, work the short rows as follows: *Row 1 (WS): K all sts, Row 2 (RS): K all sts, Row 3: K16 sts, Row 4: K16 sts*, and repeat from *-* ie these 4 rows until shorter side (beg of rows from WS = end of rows from RS) measures approx. 9 cm from shoulder. Happy knitting!

ORMES 12.11.2015 - 18:56:

Je travaille sur la taille L : après les diminutions des emmanchures pour le dos, je monte à 83 cm comme c'est noté, alors que pour le devant gauche on me dit de monter à 86 cm : où est l'erreur svp ?

DROPS Design 13.11.2015 kl. 09:09:

Bonjour Mme Ormes, pour le dos, on rabat les mailles de l'encolure à 83 cm (taille L) et on rabat celles des épaules à 86 cm, pour les devants, on ne rabat pas de mailles pour l'encolure, on continue directement jusqu'à 86 cm et on rabat alors les mailles de l'épaule, puis on tricote le col en rangs raccourcis sur les mailles restantes. Bon tricot!

Cathie De Klerk 27.11.2014 - 15:43:

Ben bezig met de linker voorpand, begrip niet hoe het ziet met de col! Is de lange gedeelte richting schoudernaald of richting voorbies? Op jullie tekening is de lange kant richting schouder/mouw. Graag jullie hulp en reactie. Met vriendelijke groeten Cathie de Klerk - Lemonsu

DROPS Design 04.12.2014 kl. 13:28:

Hoi Cathie. Ja, dat is ook correct. Je begint met de verkorte toeren aan het begin van de nld en bij het omvouwen komen deze deel aan de schouderkant.

Linda Nielsen 26.09.2014 - 11:16:

Kantmaske er det altid en ret fra begge sider.. Både retside og vrangsiden.?

DROPS Design 29.09.2014 kl. 12:34:

Hej Linda. Ja, det er det.

Jemina Typpö 24.08.2014 - 15:14:

Hei! minkä kokoinen takki mallilla on kuvassa? S vai M? Kiitos!

DROPS Design 26.08.2014 kl. 16:34:

Hei! Kuvassa on luultavasti koko M. Tarkista mitat ohjeen mittapiirroksesta ennen kuin aloitat neulomisen.

Paola 05.12.2013 - 11:42:

Ho realizzato questo modello con Drops Andes ed è riuscito benissimo. Un piccolo appunto: secondo me nelle spiegazioni del davanti sinistro quando si inziano i ferri accorciati bisogna iniziare sul rovescio del lavoro e non sul diritto come indicato.Grazie:

DROPS Design 05.12.2013 kl. 12:14:

Buongiorno Paola. Abbiamo corretto il testo. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!
