Bonjour Mme Colomo, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande individuelle. Vous pouvez rechercher dans notre base de données un modèle correspondant à votre tension ou demander conseil au magasin où vous avez acheté votre fil. Bon tricot!

Liliana Bisognin 07.01.2016 - 15:20:

Realizzato,bellissimo grazie,Liliana

J'ai fait 2 fois ce modèle; 1 fois pour ma petite fille, une fois pour moi... Très agréable à tricoter et à porter. Cordialement. FM

Hallo nochmal :-) die Jacke ist wirklich sehr schön geworden! Und die Wolle war gut bemessen - in Gr. S sind ca. 10g übrig geblieben. Daraus habe ich eine Häkelblume gemacht, gefilzt und auf den Kragen aufgenäht :-)

DROPS Design 12.05.2014 kl. 16:52:

Liebe Kristin, eine wunderschöne Idee! Viel Spaß beim Tragen und bei den nächsten Strickprojekten! :-)

Minger 11.05.2014 - 17:35:

Je l'ai fait avec le coloris 7139. Superbe. Par contre j'ai pris une taille de moins. C'est suffisant.

Kristin 08.05.2014 - 08:14:

Danke für den Tipp :-) hat gut geklappt!

Kristin 06.05.2014 - 09:04:

Hallo! Ich stricke dieses Model gerade in dunkellila, wird sehr schön. Anders als auf dem Foto rollen sich die Krausrippen zu Beginn der Arbeit aber unschön nach außen - gibt es neben Dämpfen eine andere Möglichkeit, das zu glätten?

DROPS Design 06.05.2014 kl. 14:40:

Liebe Kristin, Sie können Teile nach dem Stricken mit Stecknadeln auf einer geeigneten Unterlage (Teppich, Styroporplatte o.Ä.) feststecken (dabei die richtigen Maße der Teile einhalten), anfeuchten, z.B. mit einer Sprühflasche für Blumen, und vollständig trocknen lassen. Oder Sie legen feuchte Tücher auf die aufgespannten Teile und lassen alles trocknen. Danach sollte sich der Rand nicht mehr eindrehen.

Елена 30.12.2013 - 19:38:

Очень симпатичная и стильная модель. Обязательно свяжу такую.

Hector 21.12.2013 - 18:54:

Qu est ce que des rangs racourcis

DROPS Design 27.12.2013 kl. 14:23:

Bonjour Hector, les rangs raccourcis sont des rangs que l'on tricote partiellement pour donner la forme voulue (ici pour le col). La vidéo ci-dessous vous montre comment procéder. Bon tricot!
