BODY:

When piece measures 3 cm / 1 1/8’’, dec 1 st on each side of markers, repeat dec every 4-4½-5 cm / 1½”-1¾”-2” 3 more times (4 dec in total ) = 132-164-204 sts. When piece measures 21-23-25 cm / 8 1/4”-9”-9¾”, inc 1 st on each side of each marker, repeat inc every 3 cm / 1 1/8’’ 8 more times (9 inc in total) = 168-200-240 sts.

Dzien dobry Czy na schemacie karczku sukienki orchid boom są pokazane parzyste i nieparzyste rzędy?

DROPS Design 17.08.2018 kl. 16:41:

Witaj Zuzanno! Schemat pokazuje wszystkie rzędy, widok na prawej stronie robótki. Pozdrawiamy

Marty 23.07.2016 - 17:02:

Non riesco a capire come sia possibile avere 9 maglie di partenza per arrivare poi a 35 maglia. Forse sto interpretando male il disegno, AL primo giro ho già 11 maglie corretto perchè ho i due gettati; al secondo giro ne ho 13 perchè ho i due aumenti laterali; al terzo giro avrò altre 2 maglie in più per via dei gettati quindi ne avrò 15 e via dicendo e al giro 16 ne avrò almeno 43 giusto?

DROPS Design 23.07.2016 kl. 17:32:

Buongiorno Marty. Inizia con gli aumenti ai giri 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15. Quindi al giro 16 il numero delle m è 25 (ha aumentato 2 m 8 volte, quindi in tutto 16 m in più; 9 + 16 = 25 m). Ai giri 17, 21, 23, 27, 29 e 33 le m gettate vengono compensate dalle m diminuite (quindi in questi giri non ci sono aumenti). Aumenta di nuovo 2 m ai giri 19, 25, 31, 37, 43. Quindi vengono aumentate in tutto altre 10 m (2 m aumentate 5 volte). Al giro 44 la ripetizione del motivo è formata da 25 m + 10 m = 35 m. Buon lavoro!

Marty 20.07.2016 - 19:36:

Gli aumenti esterni presenti sullo schema a1 devono essere effettuati anche all'inizio e alla fine del lavoro? come dobbiamo effettuare gli aumenti all'inizio del ferro?

DROPS Design 20.07.2016 kl. 20:02:

Buonasera Marty. Per aumentare può lavorare la stessa m due volte, sia nel filo davanti che in quello dietro come mostrato nel video cha alleghiamo. Buon lavoro!

Irene Moss 16.06.2015 - 20:19:

Has anyone else found this neckline to be very high and somewhat tight? I'm making the size s/m which is definitely my size, but am concerned about the small # of stitches at cast-on.

Monika 27.10.2014 - 21:12:

Bei der Zeichenerklärung (Diagramm) stehen bei zwei Zeichen 1M re in Hin-R, 1M li in Rück-R. Beim Rund sticken gibt es doch aber nur eine Runde, was gilt dann dort? Beim Saum ist es mir klar, da hin und her geschrickt wird.

DROPS Design 28.10.2014 kl. 06:01:

Beim Rundstricken haben Sie ja immer die Vorderseite vorne, daher gilt hier immer das, was für Hin-R beschrieben ist.

Mannoury 08.02.2014 - 12:52:

Je ne comprends pas les explications pour l'empiecement apres les 63 mailles les explications : tricoter une re-hausse je n'ai pas compris comment faire

DROPS Design 10.02.2014 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Mannoury, la ré-hausse pour l'encolure dos permet à l'encolure dos d'être plus haute que l'encolure devant. Commencez au milieu dos (début du tour), et tricotez des rangs raccourcis au point mousse en tricotant : 8 m au 1er rang (sur l'end), 16 m au 2ème rang (sur l'env), 24 m au 3ème rang (sur l'end) et ainsi de suite jusqu'à ce que vous ayez tricoté 48 m, tricotez encore 1 tour end jusq'au milieu dos et continuez en point fantaisie. Bon tricot!

Ferdig! Og den ble nydelig. Takk for en fantastisk oppskrift.

Gerda 31.01.2014 - 14:16:

Habe ein ganz ähnliches Muster vor Jahren schon im Internet gefunden und nachgearbeitet; da von oben nach unten gearbeitet wird muss alles vorher gut ausgemessen und berechnet sein; Vorsicht bei stärkerem Busen als hier dargestellt, wird leicht zu eng!

Simona 03.12.2013 - 20:17:

Sono nei guai già dall'inizio! Non solo non riesco a lavorare in circolare le 58 maglie iniziali ma non so come "lavorare un'alzata" e "tirare il filo".... Mi potete aiutare per favore?

DROPS Design 03.12.2013 kl. 20:41:

Buonasera Simona, per iniziare a lavorare in tondo le 58 m deve usare i ferri circolari da 40 cm e avviare le m non troppo strette. Per quanto riguarda "l'alzata", è realizzata a ferri accorciati: provi a vedere se questo video può esserle utile: . Ci riscriva se ha ancora dubbi. Buon lavoro!!

Nelly 30.11.2013 - 11:20:

Bellissimo, sono a metà del lavoro e sono molto soddisfatta del risultato! Non vedo l' ora di finirlo e indossarlo. Grazie è continuate così Nelly
