Jag stickar med rundsticka nr 3 och med baby merino, dvs det garn som anges i mönstret, men den stickfasthet som anges stämmer inte alls. När jag stickat 48 varv mäter arbetet 16 cm. Vad har jag gjort för fel? Stickar normalfast. Ser ut som mönstret är stickat med grövre stickor när man tittar på bilden.

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 11:09:

Hei Marita. Strikkefastheten stemmer, og du må endre pinnestørrelsen slik at du har den angitte strikkefastheten. Derfor der det lurt å strikke en prøvelapp før man går i gang med arbeidet. Det høres ut som du nå har strikkefastheten du ville hatt om du hadde strikket i glattstrikk, og ikke i riller (1 omgang rett fra retten, 1 omgang rett fra vrangen. Altså, annenhver pinne rett og vrang, sett fra rettsiden). God fornøyelse

Seija Snaula Söderqvist 07.10.2018 - 20:49:

Hej, jag stickar strl 1-3 mån. Ska jag verkligen öka totalt 24+19 maskor för ärmen? Det blir ju en jättelång ärm.

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 08:14:

Hei Seija. Ja det stemmer. Om du ser på bildet skal det være en ganske tykk brettekant. Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du strikker ermet kortere om du ønsker det. Legg da bare opp litt færre masker siste gangen. God fornøyelse

Hanne Wesselsen 25.09.2018 - 09:24: https://www.garnstud ...

Skjønner ikke oppskriften til bakstykket. Skal den strikkes ETTER man har satt inn begge forstykkene på rundpinne??

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 10:05:

Hei Hanne. Ja: du strikker forstykkene oppover, og når du kommer opp til skulderen strikker du bakstykket nedover slik at alt blir i ett langt stykke (du bretter ved merkene på skulderen før montering). Altså: Når du har strikket begge forstykkene skal du sette dem inn på en rundpinne (det strikkes fortsatt frem og ilbake!), og samtidig legge opp masker mellom dem = bak i nakken. Så fortsetter du som forklart i oppskriften - og strikker bakstykket nedover. God fornøyelse

Barbara 15.09.2018 - 07:36:

Buongiorno, non mi è chiaro quando inizio a lavorare il dietro e i due davanti assieme li devo già unire? O li tengo assieme sui circolari solo per comodità e poi cucio i fianchi? Grazie

DROPS Design 15.09.2018 kl. 07:42:

Buongiorno Barbara. Li tiene insieme sui ferri circolari e poi li cuce alla fine. Buon lavoro!

Franzi 05.09.2018 - 21:26:

Hallo, ich habe bereits die beiden Vorderteile von dem Jäckchen gestrickt in der Größe 6/9 bzw. 56/62. Sie passen auch perfekt übereinander, also soweit ist alles prima. Ich habe jetzt nur das Problem bei dem Rückenteil. Ich verstehe überhaupt nicht, wo ich die 10 neuen Maschen anschlagen soll an welcher Stelle? Liebe Grüße und vielen Dank im voraus.

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:06:

Liebe Franzi, die neuen 10 Maschen werden zwischen dem linken Vorderteil und dem rechten Vorderteil so angeschlagen: Stricken Sie die Maschen vom linken Vorderteil (= Hinreihe rechts), schlagen Sie 10 neuen Maschen (Halsausschnitt am Rückenteil), und stricken Sie die Maschen vom rechten Vorderteil = 158 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Barbara 01.09.2018 - 23:33:

Grazie! Quindi se ho capito bene lavoro il davanti dal basso all'alto mentre il dietro dall'alto al basso?

DROPS Design 02.09.2018 kl. 08:14:

Buongiorno Laura. Sì esatto. Buon lavoro!

Barbara 01.09.2018 - 22:55:

Buonasera, non comprendo le spiegazioni del dietro. In teoria devi avviare a nuovo 34 maglie come per il davanti poi 8 per lo scollo e di nuovo 34 per l'altro davanti. Non dovrebbero essere 76 anziché 100 come indicato? Grazie!

DROPS Design 01.09.2018 kl. 23:27:

Buonasera Barbara, le maglie che deve avviare a nuovo sono quelle del collo. Ad esempio per la taglia prematuri, deve lavorare le 46 maglie del davanti sinistro, avviare 8 maglie e lavorare le 46 maglie del davanti destro, ottenendo 100 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Lyne 27.07.2018 - 01:19:

Pour le montage des mailles du devant il est dit de monter les mailles pour la manche à la fin du rang sur le côté: (4) 4-4-5-6(7-8) fois (soit si j'ai bien compris augmentation de 4 mailles par rang 7 fois.......mais pour la suite (3) 4-6-6-6(6)m———est-ce 6 fois aussi c’est ici que je ne comprends pas! Merci!

DROPS Design 27.07.2018 kl. 09:59:

Bonjour Lyne, les nombres correspondent à chaque taille, si vous faites le 2 ans , vous allez monter 7 fois 6 mailles + 1 fois 23 mailles, si vous faites le 1/3 mois, vous montez 4 fois 4 mailles et 1 fois 19 mailles. Bon tricot!

Linn 07.06.2018 - 14:34:

Hej! Var god se mina frågor nedan, speciellt den senare från tidigare idag, jag har INTE köpt det hos Drops. Min fråga är även allmän om hur man tänker när garntillverkaren skriver 24m*32v med 3 mm men möstret skriver 24m*48v på samma 3 mm. Det går ju inte riktigt uppnå 48 varv genom att byta stickor och ha kvar 24 m?

Linn Sundén 07.06.2018 - 11:44:

Hej! Skrev en fråga precis här innan men jag är fortfarande förvirrad över hur varven kan bli så olika många! Säg att jag stickar precis som baby merino rekommenderar på stickor 3 mm får jag 24m*32v på 10*10. Hur ska jag då sedan med exakt samma garn och stickor få till 24m*48v på bara 10*10 när jag läser mönstret? Tack ingen

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 14:26:

Hej, ifall du köpt ditt garn hos en DROPS-återförsäljare så kan du ta kontakt med dem på nytt. De kan instruera dig om hur du ska göra.
