I still don’t understand the row which says Knit 6- then K2 P2 A1. ( = 2 Sts) P2 Is A1. Yarn forward ? And if so only 1 stitch will be increased - I don’t understand the chart of A1

DROPS Design 26.10.2018 kl. 14:56:

Dear Mrs Pawar, when working A.1 in the round, work row 1 from RS: K1, YO, K1 - R2 (from WS): P3 - R3: K 3, pass first st worked over the other 2 so that this st is around the last 2 sts on right needle (= 1 st dec) - R4= K2, repeat then row 1 to 4. Happy knitting!

Hej. Jeg er ikke så øvet strikker, derfor dette (enkle?) spørgsmål? Jeg skal lukke af til knaphul på højre forkant, men hvor er det? Jeg har lavet forhøjning i nakken men kan ikke regne ud, hvor højre forkant er.

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 15:21:

Hej Marianne, du strikker knaphul på højre forkan, den som er strikket i retstrik. Øverst i opskriften ser du hvor du skal strikke dine knaphuller alt efter hvilken størrelse du strikker. KNAPHUL: Der lukkes af til knaphul på højre forkant. 1 knaphul = strik 3. og 4. m fra kanten ret sammen og slå om (knaphullerne lukkes fra vrangen). Luk af til knaphul når arb måler: STR (præmatur): 1 og 3 cm. STR 0/1 mdr + 1/3 mdr: 1 og 4 cm. STR 6/9 mdr + 12/18 mdr: 1 og 4½ cm. STR (2 år + 3/4 år): 1 og 5 cm.

Christine Isnard 28.02.2018 - 22:23:

Bonsoir, je n'arrive pas à joindre les deux bandes de tricotage en les tricotant ensemble et à continuer en tricotant en rond. Le câble de mon aiguille circulaire est trop long, il faut que j'utilise la technique du "magique loop". Pouvez vous montrer en vidéo comment faire pour tricoter ensemble les six mailles à superposer? Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 09:11:

Bonjour Mme Isnard, vous tricotez jusque là en allers et retours, pour superposer les 6 m de la fin et du début du rang, tricotez un rang sur l'endroit (en commençant par le devant gauche) jusqu'aux 6 mailles de la bordure devant droit, puis glissez ces mailles sur une autre aiguille et tricotez la 1ère m de la bordure devant droit avec la 1ère m de la bordure devant gauche, et ainsi de suite jusqu'à ce que les 6 m soient tricotées ensemble - en magic loop, vous pouvez répartir les mailles pour avoir les mailles du dos d'un côté de l'aiguille et celles du devant sur l'autre moitié de l'aiguille. Bon tricot!

Dhanam 03.02.2018 - 17:05:

I have finished the increase in the kyoke section with 86 stitches in totoal on my needle.. Starting the pattern, I find there are not enough stitches to comply with your instructions. Also can I just omit the complicated A diagram altogether? to make it simple?

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 08:59:

Dear Dhanan, work the 86 sts as follows: 6 sts in garter st, K2, P2, A.1 (= 2 sts), P2, K1, marker, K1, *P2, K2*, repeat from *-* 3 times in total (= overe the next 12 sts), P2, K1, marker, K1, *P2, K2*, repeat from *-* 5 times in total (over the next 20 sts), P2, K1, marker, K1, *P2, K2*, repeat from *-* 3 times in total (= over the next 12 sts), P2, K1, marker, K1, P2, A.1 (= 2 sts), P2, K2 and 6 sts in garter st = 6+2+2+2+2+1+1+12+2+1+1+20+2++1+1+12+2+1+1+2+2+2+2+6= 86 sts. Happy knitting!

Hallo, ich hätte gerne gewusst wie ich das mit den verkürzten Reihen zu verstehen habe. Lg. A. Rennert

DROPS Design 27.07.2017 kl. 17:07:

Liebe Frau Rennert, dieses Video zeigt wie man diese verkürzten Reihen strickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Regina Zipfl 28.02.2017 - 20:41:

Vielen Dank für Ihre Rückmeldung! Ich komme allerdings nach der Zunahme nur auf 86 Maschen! DAS ist das Problem! Dann ist bereits frührer ein Fehler in der Anleitung! Und nun?

DROPS Design 01.03.2017 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Frau Zipfl, in der Größe 1/3 Monate haben Sie 60 M angeschlagen und nach den verkürzten Reihen 42 M gleichmäßig verteilt zugenommen: 60+42= 102 M, dann können sie die erste Reihe stricken, wie in dieser Größe beschrieben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Regina Zipfl 28.02.2017 - 09:56:

Wenn ich hier - in der Mitte - das Ganze 7x stricke (2re/2li) dann habe ich zu wenig Maschen. Habe jetzt von beiden Seiten die entsprechenden Maschen abgezählt. Dann kann ich mittig 5x 2re/2li stricken. Ist das SO richtig????

DROPS Design 28.02.2017 kl. 13:22:

Fay Løvold 02.07.2016 - 13:14:

Hei! Jeg har litt problemer med denne oppskriften når det kommer til diagrammet. Det er beskrevet som følger: "1 kast mellom 2 m". Skal disse to maskene strikkes rett eller vrang? Vennlig hilsen, Fay

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 09:34:

Hei. De strikkes rett fra retten, vrang fra vrangen. Mvh DROPS Design
