Fejlen i afsnit 7 og afsnit 4 - stadig ikke rettet! Det undrer mig, at fejlen ikke er forstået af jer? Begge steder er problemet antallet af masker. Man slutter med at have i alt 44 masker i str S I afsnit 6 og 3 skal man slutte med 2 masker tilbage på venstre pind I afsnit 7 og 4 står der, at man har 34 masker på højre pind - det passer jo simpelthen ikke. Man har 44-2=42 masker. Resten af forklaringen passer derefter fint.

Maia M. 23.07.2018 - 22:07:

Hallo, bei Größe L hat mir die empfohlene Menge von 150 g Alpaka nicht gereicht. Und für Delight würde ich ebenso für alle Größen 200g/ 4 Knäuel empfehlen. Ansonsten muss für das 4. Teil aus Resten von 3 Knäueln der passende Farbverlauf zusammengestückelt werden.

Berit Hansen 28.03.2018 - 03:06:

Jeg har meget svært ved at få farverne til at blive symmetriske i de 4 stykker. Kan det passe at farveskiftene i Delight ikke har et ens forløb selvom man bruger samme indfarvning?

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 16:06:

Hej Berit, ja det stemmer, således står der i farvekortet: DROPS Delight ser ud som den er "håndspundet" med små variationer af tynde og tykke partier, de lækre farver er skabt med teknikken “magic print”, den giver fantastiske farvekombinationer, med bløde overgange som danner helt unikke mønstre og schatteringer. Det betyder også at man i samme parti kan opleve både mørke og lysere variationer. Dette er ikke en fejl, men en del av garnets egenskaber.

Oriola 27.03.2018 - 13:36:

Hello. Do you have any instructions for a longer sleeves version? Thank you

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 15:06:

Dear Mrs Oriola, this pattern is only available with short sleeves. Happy knitting!

Karen Margrete Madsen 06.03.2018 - 13:15:

Jeg kan åbenbart ikke forklare problemet - er der et sted, hvor man kan lægge et foto op?

Karen Margrete Madsen 28.01.2018 - 16:26:

Vedr, afsnit 6+7 Jeg kan godt finde ud af, hvordan man gør - men har problemer med masker, der bliver alt for lange og grimme, Det drejer sig om de to masker, som man løfter over på den anden pind og trækker garnet bag. Hvordan får jeg disse masker til at se ud, som de andre?

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 15:41:

Hej Karen Marie, har du se de 2 videoer som viser hvordan vi gör, du Finder dem nederst på siden under serve opskriften. God fornöjelse!

Annie 05.11.2017 - 17:13:

Stickar stl M och börjar med 48 m. Modellen har 44m vad jag har räknat ut. Men varför har modellen 15 v alpacka (vit) och mönstret ger 7? 7 cm motsvarar enbart mudd och på modellen börjar diagonalen betydligt högre upp? Stämmer mönstret? Vill inte repa upp igen då garnet inte kommer att klara en det utan att ta skada.

DROPS Design 05.12.2017 kl. 14:23:

Hej, du måste följa mönstret och hålla stickfastheten, om du gör det får du samma mått som på måttskissen. Lycka till!

Annie 20.09.2017 - 11:47:

Du säger att storlekarna står längst ner i beskrivningen men det gör det inte. Eller så får jag inte ihop det. Jag har 96cm över bysten vilken storlek ska jag välja? M eller S?

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 12:53:

Hei Annie. Du finner målskissen nederst på oppskriften. På målskissen finner du de ulike mål til 6 størrelse, både vidden nederst/over brystet(samme som vidden nederst), skuldervidde med erm, lengden mm. God Fornøyelse!

Christina 18.08.2017 - 14:44:

Hej! Jag har fastnat på minskningen i avsnitt 6 på vänster bakstycke. Är det meningen att det ska fortsätta bli rätstickning eller ska det bli avigt en bit? Och fortfarande 2 varv deligt och 2 varv alpaca?

DROPS Design 21.08.2017 kl. 11:13:

Hej Christina, ja rätstickningen fortsätter och ja fortfarande 2 varv delight och 2 varv alpaca. Lycka till!

Elisabeth 01.05.2017 - 17:38:

Hallo, ich komme an dieser Stelle nicht weiter: ZITAT: Wie das linke Rückenteil str, aber spiegelverkehrt. ZITAT ENDE Mir fehlt die Anleitung zu dem spiegelverkehrt. Ich habe schon alles mögliche probiert, aber es klappt nicht, Ich ende immer an der falschen Seite.

DROPS Design 02.05.2017 kl. 11:55:

Liebe Elisabeth, die verkürzten Reihen sind mit Abschnitt 1 bis 4 erklärt, für Ärmel wird aber an der rechten Seite (von der Vorderseite) aufgenommen und für den Halsausschnitt an dern linken Seite (von der Vorderseite) abgenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
