Hei. Jeg skal strikke vesten River run, Drops 153-23. Damen i garnbutikken sa jeg kunne strikke den med garnet Air mix (Drops, baby alpaca og merino wool). Samtidig sa hun at jeg da bare trengte 6 nøster til størrelse L. Dette får jeg ikke til å rime, og jeg er redd jeg har for lite garn. Hvor mye trenger jeg egentlig? Hilsen Eva Lem Røed.

DROPS Design 07.08.2017 kl. 12:14:

Hei Eva. Hei Litt usikker når du skriver: garnet Air mix (Drops, baby alpaca og merino wool). Er det Air fra DROPS? Vi har et garn som heter DROPS Air og som innholder 70% Alpakka, 23% Polyamid, 7% Ull. DROPS Air og garnet (DROPS Paris) som er brukt i den vesten du ønsker å strikke tilhører samme garngruppe (samme tykkelse/strikkefasthet), men DROPS Air har en løpelengde som er dobbelt så langt som Paris og du vil da trenge færre nøster av Air. Du vil trenge 5 nøster av DROPS Air. Men husk å overholde strikkefastheten som er oppgitt i oppskriften. God Fornøyelse.

I mønstret er der 2 rubrikker uden tegn, kun med en forklaring. Hvorfor det, skal der ikke være nogen streger, så man kan se, hvor i mønstret det skal være??

DROPS Design 29.06.2017 kl. 09:31:

Hei Else-Marie. Jeg er litt usikker på hva du mener, men alle diagramikon (8 stk) har en forklaring bak. Den blanke ruten, den uten streker, er også forklart under Diagram.

Spørsmål til mønster A1/A2, skal hele mønsteret gjentas uten økning i 5 rad? eller er det kun de siste 6 radene som skal gjentas i mønsteret?

DROPS Design 26.06.2015 kl. 15:00:

Hej! Man fortsætter fletterne på hver 6.p i diagrammet, men efter udtagningen strikkes fletterne som næst sidste pind i diagrammet, og så med 4 m imellem omslagen på hver 2.pind.

The cast off at the end is on the right side or in the wrong side?

DROPS Design 11.11.2014 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Cevaloni, cast off at the end of piece will be from the right side. Happy knitting!

Maria Luisa Cevolani 19.10.2014 - 16:39:

At the end of the body, where do I start the garter stitch, in the front or in the back of the work?I understand well there are 2 rows in garter stitch?And then, where do I bind off, in the front or in the back, in st.st. or reverse st.st.?Thank you

DROPS Design 20.10.2014 kl. 10:14:

Dear Mrs Cevaloni, you work 1 ridge in garter st at the end of body when piece measures 59-69 cm (see size) starting on a RS row, then cast off k from RS on next row. Happy knitting!
