Hallo, in der Anleitung steht für HALBES DOMINOQUADRAT: 2. R (= Hin-R ) sowohl am Anfang als auch am Ende der R. abnehmen. Und dann steht später für die LINKE SEITE: dabei die Abnahmen am Anfang jeder 2. Rück-R noch 22 x wdh. RECHTE SEITE: am Ende jeder R. Das verwirrt mich. Können Sie mir helfen? Danke!

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 08:38:

Liebe Bettina, für die linke Seite stricken Sie das halbe dominoquadrat wie beschrieben (= mit den Abnahmen bei einer Hinreihe an der Markierung), gleichzeitig nehmen Sie am Anfang jeder 2. Rückreihe. Das heisst, 2 Maschen werden bei den Hinreihen an der Markierung abgenommen und gleichzeitig wird 1 M am Anfang jeder 2. Rückreihen abgenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

I wish I could read the other comments about this pattern, but only one is in English. Is it possible to translate some of them to English? Thank you.

Boa tarde, Tenho uma dúvida no meio dominó. Contando as carreiras do avesso e do direito as diminuições tanto no meio como na ponta fazem-se de 4 em 4 carreiras? Obrigada desde já

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 12:10:

Bom dia, As diminuições do meio dominó fazem-se em todas as carreiras do direito (de 2 em 2 carreiras, portanto) As outras diminuições fazem-se em todas as carreiras do avesso (de 2 em 2 carreiras). Ou seja, fazem-se diminuições em todas as carreiras, tanto pelo direito como pelo avesso. Bom tricô!

Kan dette sjal strikkes i scheepjes wanderlust las vegas - farverne i dette garn er så lækkert og jeg tror spillet ville blive flot i netop dette sjal.

Regina Haslinger 27.03.2017 - 21:01:

Vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort Lg

Hallo Ich stricke gerade dass Tuch und habe dass mittlere Quadrat fertig. Nun meine Frage wird bei den aussen Quadraten entlang des mittleren Quadrat abgenommen oder entlang der aussenkante

DROPS Design 27.03.2017 kl. 09:40:

Liebe Frau Haslinger, bein den aussen Quadraten stricken Sie ein halbes Dominoquadrat und gleizeitig nehmen Sie entlang der aussenkante ab (= am Anfang jeder 2. Rück-R bei der Linke Seite bzw am Ende jeder 2. Rück-R bei der rechten Seite). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Under rubriken Vänster sida står att man ska minska 23 ggr en maska i början av varvet och 2 maskor kring mittmarkören =3 maskor minskning. Då ska man ha en maska kvar vilket inte kan stämma. Under rubriken Halv dominoruta står att man ska minska även i slutet av varv, dvs minskning 4 maskor. Eftersom det är 119 maskor på ena sidan om markören och 95 på den andra sidor, kan det inte bli bara en maska kvar på slutet. Vad avses?

Margherita 16.09.2016 - 11:05:

Salve, ho una domanda sulla realizzazione del mezzo quadrato domino. Oltre alla diminuzione su entrambi i lati all'inizio del ferro lavorando due maglie insieme a diritto, devo anche diminuire per 22 volte all'inizio del ferro rovescio? Quindi all'inizio del ferro rovescio dovrei fare 2 coppie di diminuzioni? Grazie per l'aiuto, sto impazzendo!!

DROPS Design 16.09.2016 kl. 11:28:

Buongiorno Margherita. Le diminuzioni del mezzo quadrato domino, vanno fatto sul diritto del lavoro. La diminuzione di 1 m all'interno della m vivagno viene fatta sul rovescio del lavoro e va ripetuta altre 22 volte, ogni 2 ferri, sul rovescio del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Er den side der normalt er ret siden på strikketøj vrang siden på dette flotte sjal. Mvh Jette Asp Bøttcher

Hej Jette. Nej, det skulle ikke vaere saadan.

Liz Litherland 11.03.2016 - 00:32:

How can the half domino complete to 1stitch when there is an extra decrease on one edge?

DROPS Design 11.03.2016 kl. 09:27:

Dear Mrs Litherland, you repeat the 2 rows over the 215 sts, decreasing sts every row from RS (= every 2 rows) as stated under row 2 until 1 st remains on needle. Happy knitting!
