Har lavet strikkeprøve. Men når jeg strikker mønsteret bliver arbejdet ca 30 cm for bred. Øv. Har pillet op ,hvad nu?

DROPS Design 12.07.2017 kl. 12:02:

Hej Ingeborg, hvis du har 14 m på 10 cm i bredden, så stemmer målene med dem som står i måleskitsen. Husk at hulmønsteret gør tøjet elastisk, det vil sige at jo mere du strikker i højden, jo mere vil det også vokse i højden og samtidig trække sig lidt sammen i bredden. Hvis det bliver for bredt så kan du prøve med et pindenummer mindre. God fornøjelse!

Lys søgrøn Jeg har købt garn til denne trøje med 50 % rabat i en netshop. Valgte lys søgrøn, lidt efter udelukkelses metoden da jeg ikke havde lyst til at strikke noget i beige eller brund. Hold da op det er en flot farve og rigtigt lækkert at strikke i lige nu hvor det er 27 grader i skyggen på min terasse. Jeg strikker faktisk kun Drops modeller da de findes i str. 3XL, dejligt når man er en fyldig kvinde.

Wendy French 21.02.2016 - 14:10:

By mistake I started this sweater on US 7 needles...so it should have been way too small...but it was about three times wider than it should have been for the size I was knitting. Disappointing, frustrating, and a waste of time!

DROPS Design 22.02.2016 kl. 11:30:

Dear Mrs French, remember to check and keep correct tension, ie 14 sts x 17 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm - this jumper has an oversized shape - see measurements for each size in measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Shirley 08.11.2015 - 22:48:

I have done three swatches with this pattern using the required wool and gauge. However the number of rows on each one is too long. Using 6.5 mm gives me the nearest width for the gauge but the length is more than the required 10 cm. Do you have any suggestions.

DROPS Design 02.12.2015 kl. 17:10:

Dear Shirley, you can try another technique for your K/P sts - see videos under video tab - remember your DROPS store will also have tips & advices for a personnal assistance. Happy knitting!

Har fundet glittergarnet . tak for hjælpen Hilsen Marianne

Marianne Kjær Hansen 21.01.2015 - 17:32:

Hej Igen Tak for dit svar jeg har prøvet og søge på Drops glitter , men der kommer ikke noget frem ,kan du hjælpe ? Hilsen Marianne

Marianne Kjær Hansen 21.01.2015 - 14:16:

Hej :) jeg er igang med denne Sandy bluse. Kunne godt tænke mig måske at strikke noget sølv/glimmer /glinsende effekt ind i glatstrikken på ærmerne. Vi det kunne lade sig gøre og har i eventuelt noget Matriale/produkt i kunne anbefale ? På forhånd mange tak Venlig hilsen Marianne

DROPS Design 21.01.2015 kl. 14:40:

Hej Marianne. Det lyder som en sjov idé. Hvad med at pröve med vores DROPS Glitter? Den traad kan du strikke med og det paavirker ikke strikkefastheden. Det bliver sikkert rigtig flot!

Barbara McLennan 05.12.2014 - 01:54:

I knitted most of this pattern only to fine it looked terrible, really messy and the drop stitches look twice as long as those in the photo. My tension seems right though as the garment measures the same in width as my chosen size. I am considering starting all over, but don't want the same result. The only thing I did differently is knitted the pattern in the round to the armholes. Maybe I am just not good with big needles. Any ideas? Or do I make a scarf :)

DROPS Design 05.12.2014 kl. 11:33:

Dear Mrs McLennan, working in the round maybe the reason that it didn't work - you make double yos, so that the drop is longer than normal, but if your tension is correct, it should work. What about make a swatch and wash it (to make the pattern "settle" more). For any individual help, remember you can contact your DROPS store. Happy knitting!

Ich kann die Anleitung für dieses Modell nicht drucken?

DROPS Design 03.12.2014 kl. 16:06:

Wenn Sie auf "Drucken: Anleitung" klicken, erscheint ein neues Fenster mit dem Hinweis auf die Alpaca-Party. Über dem Bild sehen Sie die Schrift "Die Anleitung ausdrucken", wenn Sie darauf klicken, erscheint die Druckversion. Alles weitere müssen Sie dann in den Druckeinstellungen Ihres PCs bzw. Druckers eingeben, aber es sollte eigentlich problemlos funktionieren.
