Das Muster wechselt ja zwischen Streifen 1 und Streifen 2, sodass die Decke in der Mitte einen anderen Farbcharakter hat als außen. Richtig? Um beurteilen zu können, ob mir das gefällt, hätte ich gerne eine komple draufsicht auf die Decke ohne Baby. Gibts die irgendwo?

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 08:03:

Liebe Claudia, leider haben wir soche Fotos nicht, aber Sie haben das Muster richtig verstanden: Sie stricken zuerst Streifen-1 bis alle Zunahmen fertig sind, dann stricken Sie Strefien-2 bis die gewünschte Länge, dann stricken Sie Streifen-1 bis zur Ende. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo,ich möchte sehr gerne oben genanntes Modell in den Originalfarben natur02 und hellmint 28 stricken. In der Farbpalette ist die Farbe 28 nicht aufgeführt. Gibt es eine Farbe die ähnlich ist? Ich bitte Sie um zeitnahe Antwort. Vielen Dank Karin Hurt

DROPS Design 31.01.2019 kl. 08:47:

Liebe Karin Hurt, nehmen Sie bitte Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail, so bekommen Sie persönnliche Hilfe mit den Farben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo, ich bin mir nicht sicher wo genau man die Länge der Decke messen soll, wenn man vom Muster Streifen -1 auf Streifen -2 wechselt? Im rechten winkel zu den streifen von der Spitze der Decke aus zur Mitte des Stückes oder vom Beginn der Reihe aus zur Spitze der Decke also "diagonal" zu den Streifen? Danke!

DROPS Design 26.10.2018 kl. 13:06:

Liebe Elizabeth, Es wird von der "Ecke" an der Seite gemessen (nicht in der Strickrichtung). Dieses Video kann Ihnen helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Agnieszka 24.10.2018 - 12:40:

Dzień dobry, chciałabym zrobić tylko większy kocyk, czy instrukcja dotyczy też większego kocyka? Jaką ilość wełny należy przygotować na większy kocyk?

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 16:49:

Witaj Agnieszko! Tak dotyczy. Na większą wersję potrzebować będziesz włóczki DROPS BABY MERINO od Garnstudio: 150 g kolor nr 28, jasna mięta i 100 g kolor nr 02, ecru (lub tyle samo w drugiej wersji kolorystycznej). Pozdrawiam!

Is de aangegeven naalddikte van 4,5 niet veel te dik voor babymerino of wordt de deken heel los gebreit

DROPS Design 02.10.2018 kl. 10:34:

Dag Marianne, De normaal aanbevolen naalddikte van Baby merino is 3 mm, maar deze deken wordt inderdaad los gebreid, met een grotere naald maat 4,5 mm. Maak altijd even een proeflapje en controleer de stekenverhouding.

Ohjeen alussa sanotaan,että reunukseen tarvitaan virkkuukoukkua nro 5.Varsinaisessa ohjeessa kuitenkin kehotetaan virkkaamaan reunus koukulla nro 4.?

Suus 01.08.2018 - 23:12:

Je meerdert zowel aan de voor als achterkant. De meerdering aan de achterkant ziet er perfect uit, maar aan de voorkant, rechts, wordt het rommelig. Komt dit door de combinatie van een nieuwe kleur en meerderen? Hoe kan dit verbeterd worden?

DROPS Design 02.10.2018 kl. 10:39:

Dag Suus, Bij het wisselen van kleur kun je de draden om elkaar heen leggen. (Je hoeft natuurlijk niet steeds de draad af te knippen) Aan de kant waar je van kleur wisselt zal het er iets anders uitzien, maar dit 'rommelige' verdwijnt wel een beetje als je de rand rondom de deken hebt gemaakt.

Susie Skødt Christiansen 02.04.2018 - 10:17:

Jeg arbejder med det sidste hjørne at tæppet. I opskriften er angivet at man skal tage ind i begyndelsen af hver pind, men på videoen vises der indtagninger både i begyndelsen og slutningen af hver pind! Hvilket er korrekt? Det er lidt forvirrende.....

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 15:10:

Hei Susie. Jeg er litt usikker på hvilke video du refererer til, men det skal kun felles på begynnelsen av pinnen, som angitt i oppskriften. Denne videoen har riktig felling. God fornøyelse.

Til Marian Evjen Dette er et hjørne til hjørne teppe, det er bare og starte, samme hvilke pinner og garn du velger, du velger selv hvor langt og bredt du vil ha det, lykke til, dette er den letteste oppskriften når det gjelder valg av garn og pinner. Masse lykke til

Marian Evjen 20.03.2018 - 19:48:

Dette var ingen hjelp på mitt spørsmål. Der står det bare hvilke andre garntyper man kan bruke. Og det er IKKE det jeg spør om. Er det noen som kan svare på det jeg spør om ?
