At beg of the next 2 rows cast off 3 sts = 74-82-90-102 (110-122) sts remain on row.

RIGHT BAND:
Work as left but after 1½ cm dec evenly for 5-5-6-6 (6-7) buttonholes. 1 buttonhole = work 2 sts tog and make 1 YO (P 2 tog in a P-section will look more pretty).

Miten hihat muodostuvat? Olen tehnyt takakappaleen ohjeiden mukaan ja hihat ovat vain pienet "siivet", pitääkö hiha neuloa erikseen?

DROPS Design 28.08.2019 kl. 18:19:

Oletko tarkistanut, että neuletiheytesi on oikea leveyssuuntaan mitattuna? Hihat neulotaan yhtenä kappaleena etu- ja takakappaleiden kanssa.

Beatrice 21.08.2019 - 06:28:

Can I knit this flat on two needles?

DROPS Design 21.08.2019 kl. 08:27:

Dear Beatrice, this overall is worked flat, back and forth on needle. Happy knitting!

Lisa 14.06.2019 - 16:23:

Continue with rib K 2/P 2 with 1 edge st in each side Does this mean I knit the edge st or slip the edge sts?

DROPS Design 15.06.2019 kl. 23:41:

Dear Lisa, better way is to knit edge sts. Happy knitting!

Mette 07.06.2019 - 18:06:

Jeg har lige samlet begge ben på en rundpind. Strik 6 p retstrik frem og tilbage. I beg af de 2 næste p lukkes der 3 m af... Skal der lukkes af INDEN de 6 p eller skal jeg strikke 6 p før jeg lukker af ? Når jeg strikker 6 p og derefter lukker af blir der jo en slags trappe (zigzag) lukning i bunden hvor der skal strikkes stolpe... Hjælp !! Jeg vil så gerne videre ;)

DROPS Design 10.06.2019 kl. 14:40:

Hej Mette, Du strikker først de 6 pinde retstrik, efter dem lukkes der 3 masker af i hver side. Dur lukker kun de yderste 3 masker af i hver side én gang, det er her forkanten skal strikkes på bagefter. God fornøjelse!

Ana Maria Arriagada 25.04.2019 - 05:51:

No entiendo como lo debo hacer cuando junto las dos piernas en una aguja redonda, como sigo. Tienes un video explicativo. La verdad es que me encanta lo empecé a tejer para mi primer nieto y la verdad es que no soy muy experta en tejidos. Gracias, sería genial me puedan ayudar. Un abrazo.

Kasia 27.02.2019 - 23:51:

Dobry wieczór. zatrzymalam sie na tych nogawkach i nie rozumiem wyjasnienia jak przesc do dalszej czesci kombinezonu. prosze o pomoc. z góry dziekuje.

DROPS Design 28.02.2019 kl. 17:47:

Witaj Kasiu, ułóż nogawki poziomo na stole, otwarte oczka są na środku naprzeciwko siebie. Zacznij od nogawki, po twojej lewej ręce i zacznij wsuwać drut z żyłką od dołu do góry, następnie wsuń ten sam drut w oczka drugiej nogawki ale od góry do dołu. Dalej przerabiaj wg opisu. Na końcu robótki będziesz zszywała nogawki, a szwy będą znajdować się po wewnętrznej stronie. Powodzenia!

Sandra 18.11.2018 - 12:30:

Warum mach ich die Marker für die Trennung zu Rücken. und Vorderteil schon so früh und nicht erst beim Teilen? Muss ich, wenn ich die Beine zusammen auf die Rundnadel genommen habe, in Runden sticken oder vor und zurück? Wenn ich den "Overall-Teil" in Runden stricke, kann ich ja später keine Blende mehr aufstricken und benötige keine Knöpfe, oder? Danke...

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 08:57:

Liebe Sandra, für Overall stricken sie beide Beine HIn- und Zurück (die Reihen beginnen an der vorderen Mitte) - nach 3 Krausrippen werden Sie die 3 ersten Maschen am Anfang der beiden Reihen abketten (= für die Blende) - die Markierungen sind nur für die Teilung, die können Sie bei den gewünschten Höhe einsezten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ulla Ladefoged 26.09.2018 - 21:32:

Jeg forstår ikke, hvad der skal ske med benene, når alle masker fra begge ben er sat på samme rundpind. Strikkes de to ben så sammen - altså der strikkes frem og tilbage over alle 90 m? Indtil arbejdet måler 50 cm? Det giver ikke mening for mig, at der ikke meget tidligere skal deles til ryg og forstykke. Jeg kan evt. sende et foto, måske forklarer jeg det ikke tydligt nok Med venlig hilsen Ulla Ladefoged

DROPS Design 28.09.2018 kl. 14:52:

Hej Ulla, i størrelse 6/9 måneder, skal benene måle 21 cm, der strikkes nu frem og tilbage fra midt foran til arb måler 50 cm, nu er du kommet til under ærmerne og fortsætter ifølge opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Bogusia 09.05.2018 - 14:53:

Czy jedna nitka z DROPS Big Merino też wchodzi w grę? Jeśli tak, to czy ilość motków powinna zostać zmieniona? Będę robić rozmiar trzeci, czyli dla 6/9 miesięcznego dziecka. Dziękuję i pozdrawiam :)

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 15:23:

Witaj ponownie Bogusiu! 1 nitka BIG Merino wchodzi jak najbardziej w grę. Na 6/9 mies. trzeba by kupić ok. 550 g, tj. 11 motków. Pozdrawiam

Bogusia 09.05.2018 - 11:17:

Dzień dobry. Czy kombinezon można wykonać podwójną nitką Baby Merino lub jedną Merino Extra Fine? Jaki rozmiar drutów należy użyć w obydwóch przypadkach? Z góry dziękuję za odpowiedź. Pozdrawiam.

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 14:47:

Witaj Bogusiu, najlepiej będzie użyć 2 nitek włóczki DROPS Baby Merino, rozmiar drutów będzie taki sam jak we wzorze (4 na ściągacze i 5 na pozostałą część). Powodzenia!
