Hej! Jag kan inte lista ut hur jag ska sätta markeringarna på oket:\r\nSticka 5rm och sedan 27m markera och sticka 1r\r\nVilken ska markeras och vilken ska stickas rät varvet ut?

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 17:53:

Hej, du ska sticka så här: 5 maskor rätstickning, 27 maskor slätstickning, sedan sätter du märket mellan 2 maskor, stickar 1 rät maska och sätter följande märke mellan 2 maskor, osv.

Pia 29.07.2018 - 17:21:

Dank voor uw antwoord. Ik snap het helaas nog steeds niet. Volgens het patroon moet ik aan de voorpandkant van de raglan 18 steken minderen. Als ik ook 12 steken moet minderen voor de v-hals, heb ik geen 18 steken over. M.a.w. Als ik 11 steken heb geminderd voor de raglan, gaan de v-hals minderingen er al overheen. Wat doe ik niet goed?

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 11:50:

Dag Pia, Als je nog niet alle minderingen voor de raglan hebt gedaan en de minderingen voor de v-hals gaan al over de raglan heen, is dat niet erg. Er staat ook in het patroon tussen haakjes dat het niet uitmaakt als de minderingen elkaar overlappen. Daarnaast staat het aantal steken dat je over hebt na alle minderingen als ongeveer aangegeven. Dus je kunt gewoon door breien, ook al ben je nog niet klaar met alle raglanminderingen op het voorpand.

Pia Thalen 27.07.2018 - 12:00:

Nog een vraag: na de minderingen voor de armsgaten, blijven er 28 steken over voor elk van de voorpanden (plus 5 st. voor de bies). Verderop staat dat je 18 x 1 steek moet minderen voor de raglan en tegelijkertijd 12 x 1 steek voor de v-hals. Dat is tezamen 30 steken. Maar zoveel steken heb je niet eens. Bovendien heb je voor het raglanpatroon 5 steken nodig, die derhalve op de pen moeten blijven. Hoe zit dit?

DROPS Design 29.07.2018 kl. 10:40:

Dag Pia, Zoals je ook op de foto kunt zien, loopt de v-hals a.h.w. over de raglan heen. M.a.w. door de minderingen van de hals loopt de raglan in de voorpanden op een gegeven moment niet meer door. In het patroon is ook aangegeven dat het geen probleem is als de minderingen voor de hals de minderingen voor de raglan overlappen.

Pia Thalen 24.07.2018 - 11:24:

Het aantal minderingen voor maat S klopt denk ik niet. Er staat voor de mouw 17 x 1 steek en 11 x 2 steken. Dat is tezamen 28 pennen. Voor de panden staat 18 x 1 steek. Dus 18 pennen. Moet het totaal 28 pennen zijn of 18 pennen en staat het aantal minderingen voor de mouw fout.

Gisela 29.08.2017 - 16:49:

Bei mir sieht das Strukturmuster ganz anders aus, eher wie ein Rippenmuster rechts/links. Ich stricke die Hinreihe rechts, die Rückreihe im Wechsel 1xrechts/1xlinks, so wie beschrieben. Das Resultat ist aber unterschiedlich. Woran liegt das?

DROPS Design 30.08.2017 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Gisela, so wird es auch gestrickt. Am besten zeigen Sie Ihr Strickstück Ihrem Laden, damit Sie Ihnen weiter helfen können. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Carina 29.04.2017 - 20:49:

Ich möchte mit dem Raglan beginnen und werde aus der Anleitung nicht schlau. Dort heißt es Tipp zur Abnahme 1: je 1 M am Vorder- und Rückenteil und 1 M auf jeder Seiter der Ärmel wie folgt ?aufn.? bedeutet das "aufnehmen"? Ich dachte ich muss abnehmen?Gestehe, es ist meiner erster Raglan, vielleicht liegt die Verständnisschwierigkeit darin ;) Danke für die Beantwortung!

DROPS Design 02.05.2017 kl. 09:53:

Liebe Carina, es stimmt, es sollte "abnehmen" sein, Anleitung wird korrigiert. Danke für Ihre Rückmeldung! Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hanne 08.08.2016 - 11:42:

Efter alle indtag har jeg 90 masker i str. Xl, og ikke ca. 80 som anført i opskriften, min trøje bliver fin, men synes der har været nogle uklarheder i opskriften!

Hanne 05.08.2016 - 10:28:

Har fundet ud af det hele

DROPS Design 11.08.2016 kl. 11:14:

Hej. Så fint att du funnit ut av det. Mvh DROPS Design

Hanne 04.08.2016 - 16:28:

Hvilken side af strukturmønstret er retsiden? Det bliver jo forskelligt alt efter om man efter de 4 cm starter på ret eller vrangpind?

Hanne 04.08.2016 - 13:33:

3. Tilføjelse i mit spørgsmål. Skal de omslagene masker ikke strikkes spejlvendt på ærmet i forhold til på forstykket/ bagstykket? Altså de huller der bliver på hver sider af rabatten mellem ærme og for/bagstykker?
