Liebe Frau Reck, Garnmenge für jede Größe finden Sie unter Materials, dh in der Größe L und XL: 650-700 DROPS Lima / 50 g ein Knäuel = 13-14 Knäuel DROPS Lima. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maria Pessina 05.02.2018 - 13:17:

Posso usare ferri diritti?

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 14:14:

Buongiorno Maria. Il cardigan è lavorato avanti e indietro sui ferri. Può usare i ferri dritti e lavorare seguendo le spiegazioni. Buon lavoro!

Bev 14.03.2016 - 13:56:

Ah. That makes sense. Thanks.

Bev Maydon 13.03.2016 - 22:01:

Very confused about instructions for back piece. It says "cast off for neck when piece measures 60 cm (third size)... Cast off the middle 20 stitches. When all stitches have been cast off, piece measures 62 cm." That makes no sense- if you cast off when the piece measures 60 cm, how can it then measure 62 cm? Help!

DROPS Design 14.03.2016 kl. 09:52:

Dear Mrs Maydon, when piece measures 58 cm (3rd size), you have to cast of for diagonal shoulder at beg of every row (= on each side): 18 sts 1 time, 12 sts 4 times and AT THE SAME TIME cast off for neck when piece measures 60 cm cast off the middle 20 sts for neck (then continue each shoulder separately while continuing the cast off for diagonal shoulders at beg of row towards sleeve/shoulder). When you will have cast off all sts for diagonal shoulders, piece measures 62 cm. Happy knitting!

L'ho appena finito: semplice, veloce da realizzare ma d'effetto.

Bev Maydon 02.02.2016 - 11:38:

This is my first go at a Drops pattern and I'm not sure what counts as a Small / Medium etc. I'm a size 14 British - roughly 36 ins bust. Does that count as Medium?

Das wird mein nächstes Projekt :)

Maurier 23.11.2014 - 18:07:

Bonjour, je sais faire les rangs raccourcis mais je ne comprends pas : "2 rangs sur les 23 1ères m, 2 rangs sur toutes les mailles". Serait-il possible de détailler et de dire à combien de rangs on doit arriver à la fin (modèle L)? Merci pour votre explication.

DROPS Design 24.11.2014 kl. 11:36:

Bonjour Mme Maurier, on tricote des rangs raccourcis (= plus de rangs sur les mailles côté milieu devant) pour créer le col châle. En taille L, on tricote 2 rangs sur 26 m, 2 rangs sur toutes les mailles jusqu'à ce que le côté plus court de cette bande mesure 7 cm (côté cousu le long de l'encolure dos, jusqu'au milieu encolure dos). Bon tricot!

Françoise Minger 04.11.2014 - 10:52:

J'ai fait ce modèle. 2 remarques ; il est difficile de trouver la bonne taille. Le XL est et un grand XL..surtout en largeur. L'encolure coté dos n'est pas assez échancrée ...à mon gout. Mais le résultat est satisfaisant.

DROPS Design 04.11.2014 kl. 13:25:

Bonjour Mme Minger et merci. Pour trouver la taille idéale et adapter si nécessaire, il est recommandé de comparer les mesures du schéma à celles d'un vêtement analogue dont vous aimez la forme, vous pouvez ensuite ajuster si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

SORREL Dina 22.09.2014 - 16:53:

Bonjour, j'ai bien compris la 1er partie des explications. après le dos je ne comprends pas pourquoi il faut continuer le point fantaisie,puisque le modéle n'en comporte que quatre rangs? Merci de votre réponse cordialement DR

DROPS Design 22.09.2014 kl. 17:18:

Bonjour Mme Sorrel, le point fantaisie se compose des *5 rangs décrits + 7-8 cm jersey* (cf taille). Vous répétez ainsi de *-* en ajustant pour que le 1er des 5 rangs soit tricoté sur l'envers. Bon tricot!
