Kroppen får ved økning 50, 60 og 70 masker. Det er vel feil at det blir 48, 56 og 64?

DROPS Design 12.12.2016 kl. 15:09:

Hej Toril. Nej, du har f.eks. 48 m og skal strikke: 5 m, øk 1 m i neste m. Dvs, du strikker 6 m og öker til 7 i hver. 48/6 er 8 gange og 8 gange 7 m er 56 m. Det samme gaelder for naeste omg osv.

Ingrid Rörig 25.10.2016 - 18:14:

Hallo, ist es richtig, dass der erste rote Streifen incl. Anschlag für der Körper nur 3 Reihen umfasst? Das Grundmuster für Streifen umfasst doch 4 Reihen. MfG I. Rörig

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 08:50:

Liebe Frau Rörig, also für den Körper beginnen Sie die Streifen mit der 4. Runde, dh Anschlagskante + die 3 erste Runde sind mit Rot gestrickt.

Julius tontun ohjeessa on käden kohdalla virhe. Ohjeessa kehotetaan :" Katkaise lanka, vedä se loppujen silmukoiden läpi, kiristä aukko umpeen ja päättele langanpää." Näin ei voi tehdä .

Mari 23.12.2013 - 22:35:

Hei Holder på å strikke denne, men kroppen blir bare halvparten av lengda i forhold til illustrasjonsbildet! Har lest igjennom flere ganger, men ender opp med bare 4 grå striper i genseren. Han blir søt alikevell, men den gode magen var noe av det jeg likte med nissen. Tenkte jeg skulle si ifra (og ønske dere god jul i samme slengen :) )

Roberta 22.12.2013 - 17:49:

Salve ho realizzato il modello ma credo ci sia un errore nel passaggio per la testa non è scritto che bisogna rovesciare il corpo e quindi lavorare tutti i ferri a rovescio. Io sono riuscita a farlo solo così.

DROPS Design 27.12.2013 kl. 11:07:

Buongiorno Roberta, le istruzioni del modello sono corrette, il corpo non va rovesciato, ma vanno semplicemente riprese le maglie: probabilmente c'è stato qualche problema durante questo passaggio. Buon lavoro!

Wagner, Johanna 29.11.2013 - 13:39:

Der Kleine gefällt mir sehr gut. Leider kann ich die Anleitung nicht ausdrucken. Was mache ich falsch?

DROPS Design 01.12.2013 kl. 09:48:

Liebe Johanna, gehen Sie auf den Button "DRUCKEN: ANLEITUNG" und dann in der rechten oberen Ecke nochmals auf "Anleitung drucken".

Lucie 26.09.2013 - 14:58:

Pro Janu Nemcakovou: *-* znamená, že se postup mezi hvězdičkami, který byl obvykle popsán v předchozí větě, opakuje (např. * 2hladce, 2 obrace*, *-* opakujeme 3krát znamená, že budete plést 2hl,2obr,2hl,2obr,2hl,2obr)

Jana Nemcakova 26.09.2013 - 10:46:

Dobry den. Mohli by jste mi vyscetlit ci znamema tohleto : *-*? Jsem zacatecnice a vubec tomu nerozumim. Dekuji Vam za odpoved. S pozdravem Jana

Vera 14.12.2012 - 19:47:

Thank you for your reply! I mean that the pattern says to join in the round for the "yoke", bind off facing bind off. But then you'll end up with holes in the armpit :) Did I miss something? I've just sewn the holes closed now. Love the pattern!

Vera 14.12.2012 - 13:19:

In the english version, the instructions for finishing the armpit are missing

DROPS Design 14.12.2012 kl. 14:11:

Dear Vera, the arms will be joined with the rest of the body under shoulders and head. Happy knitting !
