How to read the charts? There is no direction arrow, for instance with A1, am I reading from bottom right to left?

DROPS Design 23.12.2014 kl. 19:07:

Dear Mrs Ackerson, when you work in the round, always read diagrams from the right towards the left, when working back and forth work RS rows from the right towards the left and WS rows from the left towards the right. Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Ans 23.06.2013 - 15:24:

Als ik gaatjes brei, moet ik ook weer meerderen. Moet ik dat met een omslag doen of uit een steek breien?

DROPS Design 24.06.2013 kl. 12:13:

Hoi Ans. Als je moet meerderen bij de gaatjes, dan zou ik waarschijnlijk een steek opnemen en geen omslag maken. Maar kijk wat jij het mooiste en makkelijkste vindt.

Marijke 04.06.2013 - 15:08:

Gisteren afgemaakt, vandaag direct aan en al helemaal aan verknocht. Ideaal voor die tussendoordagen die we zoveel hebben in Nederland (niet warm niet koud) als je niet weet wat je aan moet.

Anna 03.03.2013 - 10:57:

Det är en otydlig teckning: 2m ihop, 1 "klump" osv. Klumpen betyder 2 omslag, varav ett stickas och ett släpps på följande varv.

Sunniva Holmbek 03.03.2013 - 10:48:

M1 ser ikke ut til å inneholde noen kast, kun to og to sammen ?

DROPS Design 03.03.2013 kl. 17:42:

Jo, det er. De er den sorte oval som du se efter de 2 m sammen i pind 9 og 19 (2 kast mellom 2 m).

Susnne 16.02.2013 - 19:51:

Wer hat das teil schon gestrickt?

Svenja 01.03.2013 kl. 08:57:

At Susanne: Ja ich. Was möchtest Du denn wissen?

Cnh 01.02.2013 - 20:44:

Tolles Teil. Das werde ich stricken.

Roely Hospers-Hensums 27.01.2013 - 19:23:

Model nr. ab-035, laatste zin bij de mouw, losjes afkanten enz enz.,9minder cm. voor de grootste enz.) is hier het cm. aantal vergeten?

DROPS Design 28.01.2013 kl. 22:08:

Je moet afkanten bij een hoogte van 15-14-13-12-11-10 cm, en daarna hebben we het uitleg gegeven waarom de mouw korter korter is voor de grootste maten

Brigitte Buscher 13.01.2013 - 14:37:

Finde ich sehr schön möchte ich gern nachstricken

Bente Kvarsnes 11.01.2013 - 18:40:

Lurer på når denne blir lagt ut, for jeg er klar med garn til å lage den og venter og venter
