Hej:) Jeg kan ikke se hvor langt oppe på vesten, at jeg skal starte med mønstret. På forhånd tak for hjælpen.

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 13:18:

Hei Mette. Hei. Når du er ferdig med bærestykket og har strikket begge ermkantene og satt disse sammen med bærestykket, strikkes det 1 pinne vrang fra vrangen samtidig som det felles 1-5-13-9-9-5 m jevnt fordelt = 275-291-307-339-371-403 m. Deretter strikkes 0-2-4-0-2-4 pinner til med vinrød og glstrikk. Så starter du med diagram A.1 (se diagram for din størrelse). God Fornøyelse!

Hildegard Brake 27.11.2017 - 15:09:

Hallo, kann ich die Weste auch als Pullover stricken? Wie geht das? Kann ich die jeweils angegebenen Maschenzahlen nehmen und alles auf einer Rundstricknadel im Kreis stricken? MfG Hildegard Brake

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 15:21:

Liebe Frau Brake, so können Sie wahrscheinlich stricken, passen Sie mal auf, daß die Farbenmuster mit den gesamten Maschenanzahl passt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Le Derf 05.10.2017 - 14:56:

Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse rapide. Pouvez-vous me donner plus de détails car je ne comprends toujours pas ce que je dois faire. D'avance merci. C'est mon premier empiècement jacquard. Excusez-moi de vous solliciter à nouveau.

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 16:10:

Bonjour Mme Le Derf, vous allez tricoter A.1 ainsi: 1 m lis au point mousse, puis vous répétez A.1 en largeur jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 2 mailles, tricotez l'avant-dernière maille de A.1 (pour que le motif soit symétrique) et terminez par 1 maille lisière. Lisez A.1 en commençant en bas à droite et de droite à gauche sur l'endroit, et de gauche à droite sur l'envers (sur l'envers, commencez par 1 m lis au point mousse, la 1ère m de A.1 à droite, puis répétez A.1 en lisant de gauche à droite) et terminez par 1 m lis au point mousse. Bon tricot!

Le Derf Claudine 04.10.2017 - 19:35:

Bonjour, J'ai commencé ce joli modèle Sweet Scarborough taille M. J'ai 291 mailles. Je commence le diagramme A1 avec 1 m lisière de ch. côté au point mousse. Je ne comprends pas la suite : tricoter l'avant dernière m. du rang comme la 1ère m. de A-m mais ne pas faire de diminution sur cette maille. Pouvez-vous détailler ? D'avance merci

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 09:05:

Bonjour Mme Le Derf, pour que le motif soit identique de chaque côté, vous tricotez la 1ère maille de A.1, mais sur les rangs de diminutions, tricotez bien 1 m end et pas 2 m ens à l'end, et vous terminez par 1 m lis. Bon tricot!

Diana 04.02.2017 - 06:13:

I am having the same problem as Linda brush, as noted in the comment section. I still don't understand what the pattern means. Can you explain in more detail or show in a video?

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 09:10:

Dear Diana, you are working diagram repeating A.1 in width as many times as stated for your size, then finish with the 1st st shown in A.1 to make pattern symetrical on both sides inside the edge sts. When 1st st in A.1 is K2 tog, just work the last st from RS in the main colour of this row. Happy knitting!

Linda Brush 06.10.2016 - 20:33:

I do not understand the line in the pattern that states: Continue with diagram A-1 with 1 edge st in each st in each side in garter st, work next to last st on row as first stitch in A-1 but do not decrease in this stitch. Is there another way to explain this please????

DROPS Design 07.10.2016 kl. 08:26:

Dear Mrs Brush, you will repeat A.1 in width but to get similar pattern on each side on front piece, work the next to last st from RS (before edge st) as the 1st st in A.1. But when you have to dec work the 1st and 2nd st in A.1 tog, work this st K with the colour shown in diagram, without dec (dec will apply to repeats in width). Happy knitting!

Marit 16.03.2016 - 01:15:

Uansett saa er diagrammet feil. Etter en felling saa skal det bli en rute mindre i diagrammet i neste rad. Diagrammet skal illustrere det som skal strikkes i stedet for beskrivelse med ord.

Marit 09.03.2016 - 18:55:

Er det ikke en feil i mönsterdiagrammet i alle strörrelse. Etter nest siste felling er det igjen i en mönster-rapport 7 masker. Jeg mener det riktig antall maa bli 6 masker. Slik at en mönster-rapport slutter med 4 masker.

DROPS Design 10.03.2016 kl. 10:20:

Hej Marit, Jag ser vad du menar, men m är borta Innan sista fellingen i båda diagrammen. Lycka till!

Sheila 08.03.2016 - 20:17:

Hi. In the pattern I can't see when I should start to follow the diagram. Can you help please? thanks

DROPS Design 09.03.2016 kl. 08:34:

Dear Sheila, diagram A.1 is worked on yoke after P1 from WS dec sts evenly + 2 more rows in stocking st. Happy knitting!

Agustina 23.03.2015 - 10:23:

It is a great cardigan, but for size M you need more than 50gr. colour white, I needed 75grs,
