Bonjour, j ai tricoté les 55 cm de hauteur pour le dos et je ne comprends pas trop la suite.\r\nJe ne visualise pas bien ce qu\' il faut faire et comment procéder pour l encolure.\r\nPourriez vous le donner un petit coup de pouce ! Merci

Bonjour Sandrine, à 55 cm, vous avez 65 m, vous tricotez les 27 m centrales en côtes pour la bordure d'encolure et les autres en jersey ainsi sur l'endroit: 19 m jersey, côtes 1 m env/1 m end sur les 26 m suivantes, 1 m env (= 19 m en côtes) et 19 m jersey. Tricotez ainsi pendant 2 cm, puis rabattez les 17 m centrales, il reste 24 m pour chaque épaule dont 5 m en côtes côté encolure. Tricotez chaque épaule séparément. Tricotez les mailles comme elles se présentent jusqu'à 58 cm, et rabattez toutes les mailles. Répétez pour l'autre épaule. Bon tricot!

De mouwlengte van dit vest klopt m.i. niet in de beschrijving ten opzichte van de tekening. Hij wordt ook te lang als je de beschrijving aanhoudt.

Ich verstehe das Prinzip der Bordmaschen nicht ganz. Auf dem Bild kann ich bei dem Vorderteil nicht erkennen, dass da irgendwo etwas kraus gestrickt ist. Wofür sind die Bordmaschen gedacht? Als Detail? Vielen Dank im Voraus.

DROPS Design 10.04.2012 kl. 09:11:

Die Blende gegen die Mitte ist in Krausrippe gestrickt damit sich die Arbeit nicht rollt.

Hi Kerry, you are right - the dec are only at the side, the pattern has been edited. thank you.

Kerry Hullett 05.09.2011 - 22:38:

Left front should say: When the piece measures 6 cm dec 1 st at each side every 3 cm a total of 5 times -should read DEC 1 st at side only every 3 cm a total of 5 times

Den yderste kantm strikkes i retstrik = ret både fra retsiden og vrangen i hver side. 1 m ret = ret fra retsiden og vrang fra vrangen. Vedr lukning, se lukketips i begyndelsen af opskriften. Du strikker de 5 stolpem og tager ind som der står beskrevet under lukketipset.

Nina 24.10.2006 - 10:28:

vedr. forstykke står der "Strik Rib i 4 cm med 1 kantm og 1 m ret mod siden og 1 m ret og 1 m retstrik mod midt foran" men 1 m ret og 1 m retstrik er det ikke bare 2 m retstrikning ??? Vedr. Lukning skal jeg her lukke sådan at jeg først stikker de 5 stoplem og så lukker ? hvad så med de 5 stolpem ??
