PATTERN:
Row 1-6: K all sts.
Row 7: * K 1, 2 YOs *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
Row 8: * K 1, drop YOs off the needle *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
Repeat row 1 to 8 until finished measurements.

Kan ik dit vest met bomull-lin breien? Verandert dan de steekverhouding, bomull-lin wordt wel als garenalternatief gegeven. Dank voor uw reactie.

DROPS Design 13.03.2017 kl. 11:51:

Hoi Marjan. Je kan vervangen door Bomull-Lin, maar het is een goed idee om een proeflapje te breien om de stekenverhouding te controleren en eventueel de naalddikte aan te passen.

Reinagel 12.05.2015 - 16:44:

Bonjour. Est-il possible de réaliser le dos et le devant uniquement au point mousse ? et si oui faut-il augmenter la quantité de pelotes ? Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 13.05.2015 kl. 10:19:

Bonjour Mme Reinagel, vous pouvez effectivement tricoter le dos et les devants au point mousse, comparez un modèle analogue pour vérifier la quantité nécessaire et demandez conseil à votre magasin DROPS. Bon tricot!

Hallo, bel glatt rechts stimmt meine Maschenprobe, beim Muster wird es viel zu breit. Außerdem habe ich immer nach einer Umschlag- reihe mehr Maschen auf der Nadel als zuvor. Was mache ich falsch? Danke.

DROPS Design 02.04.2015 kl. 09:44:

Sie müssen ja beide Umschläge wieder fallen lassen, die Umschläge stricken Sie einfach nicht ab, dann bleibt auch die Maschenzahl gleich. Die Umschläge dienen lediglich dazu, die Maschen zu verlängern, also den Rechtsmaschen mehr Faden zu geben, damit das Muster entsteht, aber es handelt sich dabei nicht um Zunahmen. Wenn Sie das nun auch bei der Maschenprobe berücksichtigen, sollte sie auch nicht mehr zu breit werden.

Hallo, ik vind dit vest heel erg leuk om te breien in deze wol, maar volgens de wol beschrijving wordt breinaald 5 mm aanbevolen en volgens jullie patroon breinaald 7 mm. Klopt dat wel ? ook zou ik graag willen weten of deze wol in de wasmachine gewassen kan worden zonder problemen, weten jullie dat?

DROPS Design 28.01.2015 kl. 16:13:

Hoi Roos. Op de wikkel staat de standaard aanbevolen breinaalddikte/stekenverhouding van het garen. Maar het kan anders zijn op een patroon ivm structuur, model, vorm enzovoort. Dus je moet de stekenverhouding aanhouden van het patroon: 14 st x 17 nld in tricotst of 14 st x 26 nld in ribbelst. Wij raden hier nld 7 mm aan, maar brei altijd eerst een proeflapje om zeker te zijn. Deze wol is niet te wassen in de wasmachine. Kijk ook op het kleurenoverzicht hier onder WASVOORSCHRIFT.
