Sarebbero disponibili istruzioni per eseguire con i ferri non circolari?, Grazie

DROPS Design 20.04.2019 kl. 16:41:

Buongiorno Mara, può lavorarlo in piano aggiungendo una maglia di vivagno per lato per la cucitura. Buon lavoro!

Conny Holm 19.06.2018 - 19:25:

W-032-bn str 3/4 år Hej Drops, Tak for jeres hurtige svar, som ikke er til megen hjælp, desværre. Jeg forstår stadig ikke, hvor mange m der skal lukkes af på ærmets ærmekuppel eller hvornår til sidst er 33/34 cm eller hvor mange masker jeg skal lukke af til allersidst?

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hej igen, Du lukker først 6 masker i midten, nu lukker du i hver side, 2m, 2m, 1m, 2m, 2m, 2m, hvis du overholder strikkefastheden måler arbejdet nu 33cm, nu lukker du 3m og når du har gjort det måler arbejdet 34cm og du lukker resten af maskerne af. :)

Conny Holm 19.06.2018 - 10:25:

W-032-bn: Ærmegab. Ryg-/forstykket aflukkes v/27cm til ærmegab og fortsætter aflukningen til 38 cm hvor der lukkes af til hals og der strikkes til arb måler 40 cm. Dvs fra 27 cm til 40 cm svarer til et ærmegab på 13 cm. Ærmet gab starter ved 28 cm og aflukkes helt ved 34 cm = 6 cm?

DROPS Design 19.06.2018 kl. 14:25:

På grund af alle aflukninger i hver side af ærmet, så dannes der en afrundet ærmekuppel. Den kommer til at passe perfekt ind i selve ærmegabet på trøjen. Sørg for at du lukker løst af! God fornøjelse!

Conny Holm 19.06.2018 - 10:06:

Opskrift w-032-bn. Jeg forstår ikke aflukningen på ærmet. Ryg-/forstykke aflukkes når arb er 40 cm. Ærmet aflukkes når det er 34 cm? Ærmets gab bliver således alt for kort iflg. opskriften! I øvrigt er det en meget kryptisk forklaring til aflukningen på ærmet, hvor mange m skal yderligere aflukkes inden de 34 cm?

DROPS Design 19.06.2018 kl. 14:22:

Hej Conny, er det den mindste størrelse du strikker? Så lukker du af til ærmegab når arbejdet måler 27 cm. Og du lukker hele arbejdet af når arbejdet måler 40 cm. Ærmegabet måler da 13 cm. På ærmet lukker du af til ærmekuppel når arbejdet måler 28 cm, og fortsætter at lukke af i hver side; 2m 2 gange, 1m 1 gang, og så 2 masker i hver side til ærmet måler 33 cm. Sidst 3 masker 1 gang inden du lukker alle masker af. Se også gerne måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

SELAM 03.10.2016 - 21:12:

Thank you for the reply:-DI have one more Q. will it work i I were to work reglan decrease and still have the same neck opening on this pattern? ( I find it difficult attaching sleeves )

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 09:13:

Dear Selam, you may adjust the pattern as you rather like it - there is a video showing how to sew sleeves. Happy knitting!

Selam 28.09.2016 - 00:37:

Hi I would like to knit this jumper using big merino.. will i need to change anything except the yarn?

DROPS Design 28.09.2016 kl. 09:20:

Dear Selam, Big Merino belongs to group C as Paris used here, so that you can use it as an alternative, you will have to calculate new amount of yarn - read more here. Happy knitting!

Tamara 06.08.2016 - 23:12:

Hoewel ik meestal juist een strakke breier ben komt mijn proeflapje met naald 4,5 het meest in de buurt van de juiste stekenverhouding (zelfs nog iets te lang). Ik denk dus dat ik naald 4.5mm kies ipv 5.0mm. Moet ik dan voor de start wel gewoon naald 4.0mm nemen? Of ook daar een naaldje kleiner pakken?

DROPS Design 07.08.2016 kl. 14:16:

Beste Tamara, om heel zeker te zijn, raden we aan een proeflapje ook even te wassen en te laten drogen. Soms wordt het werk als het los is na het wassen nog wat losser, soms krimt het nog iets. Maar als je voor de tricot een halve maat kleiner nodig hebt, dan is het mooier om dat voor de randen/boorden ook te doen, dus 3,5 mm. Let dan wel op dat je niet te strak opzet. Je zou ook op kunnen zetten met nld 4 mm bijvoorbeeld, zodat de randen van de trui niet te strak worden.

I've had so much fun doing this fast project! I'm about to finish assembling the neck piece and all done. My sone is very excited! ;) Thank you! Oh, first time working with Drops Paris. I've grown to like this yarn very much! This most certainly won't be our last time together ;)

Anne-Sophie Durand 17.01.2014 - 23:44:

Bonjour, je suis en train de tricoter ce modèle et il manque l'explication pour la rayure mousse au cm 26 dos et devant ainsi que celles correspondantes sur les manches. Pouvez-vous m'indiquer à quelle hauteur elles se trouvent? Merci Anne-Sophie

DROPS Design 18.01.2014 kl. 09:49:

Bonjour Mme Durand, la rayure mousse se tricote au dos & devant à 6-7-8-9-10 cm, à 22-24-26-28-30 cm et 24-26-29-31-34 cm quand on tricote 1 rang env (sur l'end, en rond) et pour les manches à 8-9-10-11-12 cm, à 20-22-24-26-28 cm et 22-24-27-29-32 cm. Bon tricot!

Srikket DROPS bluse i ”Paris”. Str 3 - 12 år I ærmet skrives der: derefter lukkes der 2 m af i hver side Det er minus 4 masket på hver pind? Mit ærme/overarm komme ikke til at passe til blusen, det bliver for kort - der er ikke masker nok til at lukke. 4 masker af på hver pind. Kan det være at der menes strik 2 masker sammen i beg af hver pind? = lukke af 2 masker

DROPS Design 20.05.2013 kl. 08:57:

Jo du lukker af ifølge opskriften på de sidste 5 cm af ærmegabet = 11 p
