Hallo, ich habe zwei Fragen zum Rückenteil; stricke ich nur über die mittleren 22M die Krausrippe und lege den Rest in der Zeit still oder stricke ich weiter A2 und die mittleren 22 als Krausrippe? Und als zweite Frage: Wo steht die Schulterabnahme beschreieben? In der Anleitung steht nur: nach der letzten Schulterabnahme aber inwiefern soll ich diese arbeiten? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Lena, wenn Sie 1 Krausrippe über die mittleren 22 M gestrickt haben, werden die mittleren 14 M abgekettet (= jede Schulter jetzt separat stricken). Stricken Sie dann weiter wie zuvor (A.2 und Krausrippen) über die restlichen Maschen. Wenn die Schulterabnamen fertig sind (= Abketten von 2-2-1-0-0-0 x 4 M und 11-12-14-16-17-18 x 2 M.), werden alle restlichen Maschen abgekettet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour Pouvez-vous m’indiquer les modifications à apporter pour faire le modèle 154/21 en manches longues? Merci

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 13:18:

Bonjour Valérie, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chaque modèle à chaque demande individuelle. N'hésitez pas à vous adresser au magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine pour toute assistance complémentaire. Bon tricot!

Sylvie 29.04.2018 - 17:49:

Bonjour. Je suis arrivée à la fin des diminutions (2 fs 4mailles et 11fs 2 m. Combien doit il rester de mailles après des diminutions ? Les 17 m a rabattre dont elles a rabattre d es deux côté. Merci pour votre reponse.

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 11:33:

Bonjour Sylvie, vous aviez 108 m, vous rabattez de chaque côté (2x4 m) et (11 x 2 m) soit un total de 60 m, il reste 48 m. Vous rabattez les 14 m centrales pour l'encolure= il reste 17 m de chaque côté pour les épaules. Terminez chaque côté séparément pour rabattre les mailles des 2 épaules au rang suivant sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Glynis Bowering 09.04.2018 - 06:02:

I am making size XL. I have only got 106 stitches on my needle with 9 inc on each side and i\\\'m already at 7 inches from the beginning. The pattern says to inc 4 st each side at 7.5 in to make 128. My gauge is slightly less than it calls for. I have to inc 7 more times so it will be almost twice as long as the pattern calls for. Do I go for the length or knit til the stitch count is correct?

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 13:15:

Dear Mrs Bowering, this pattern has been written for a gauge of 14 sts x 19 rows = 4"x4", make sure to change needle size to get the right measurements matching the instructions. We are unfortunately not able to adapt each our patterns to every single request. You are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further individual assistance recalculating the pattern to your own swatch. Happy knitting!

Gery 20.01.2017 - 20:27:

Hi! I would like to know what does "eyelet row" means? And if it is a knitting technic where cxan I find it? Thank you!

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 09:10:

Dear Gery, the eyelet rows refer to the lace pattern, ie diagrams A.1 and A.2 as explained in written pattern. Happy knitting!

Anneke 21.11.2016 - 22:39:

Na nog extra rekenen klopt het gelukkig toch. Een heel leuk vest! Zou het mogelijk zijn om het toch iets duidelijker aan te geven, alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 22.11.2016 kl. 10:16:

Hoi Anneke. Ik was ook bezig met rekenen, maar gelukkig ben je er nu uit. Bedankt voor het melden :)

Anneke 21.11.2016 - 11:10:

Het is me niet duidelijk hoeveel ik moet minderen bovenaan het rugpand. Ik begin met 108 steken, dan minder ik 2 keer vier steken en 11 keer 2 steken dat maakt samen 60 steken. Dan trek ik de steken van de hals eraf, dat maakt 48 steken. Dat is dus 24 per schouder in plaats van 17 st. Wat zie ik over het hoofd?

Jannicke Aven 09.04.2016 - 23:03:

Jeg mener det mangler opplysninger eller er veldig dårlig forklart ift halsfellingen. Når arbeidet måler 53 cm (str M) skal man felle de midterste 14 masker på bakstykket, før hver side strikkes hver for seg. Man sitter da igjen med 37 masker på hver side, hvor - etter det jeg forstår - 1 maske skal felles innenfor de fire rillemaskene på hver pinne fra rettsiden. Men når ferdig arbeid skal måle 56 cm; hvordan kan man da felle 20 masker (slik at man står igjen med de siste 17) på bare 3 cm....?

DROPS Design 11.04.2016 kl. 14:47:

Hej Jannicke, du har 112m, lukker 4x2 og 2x12m af i hver side = 48 m. Lukker de midterste 14m af og har nu 17 m tilbage på hver skulder. God fornøjelse!

Sylvia 09.04.2016 - 15:01:

Er worden eerst 2 ribbels gebreid en dan doorgegaan in tricotsteek, deze onderste ribbelrand krult op, wat kan ik daaraan doen?

DROPS Design 12.04.2016 kl. 11:05:

Hoi Sylvia. Meestal wordt dat minder hoe verder je brei. Je kan ook altijd na afloop de rand lichtjes persen, dan blijft die mooi in vorm.

Kathi 04.01.2016 - 15:25:

Anleitung hat sehr gut funktioniert, gute Beschreibung! Gestrickt habe ich mit einem Garn mit ähnlicher Maschenprobe. Pattern worked out very well, good descreptions! I knitted with yarn that came to a similar stitch test.
