Ich möchte gerne einen 4. "Streifen" Brombeermuster unten dranstricken, damit der Poncho länger wird. Wenn ich Größe XXL wähle, wieviel Garn müsste ich zusätzlich zu den 350 g bestellen?

Liebe Anna, je nachdem Größe, Garne ... wird das ändern. Wenden Sie sich bitte an Ihrem DROPS Laden um weitere persönnliche Hilfe zu bekommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

For the garter stitch pattern, where 1 ridge = 2 rounds, is 1 ridge = K1 round, P1 round, K1 round, P1 round, as the pattern suggests? Or is 1 ridge just = K1 round, P1 round? Thanks. Beautiful pattern!

DROPS Design 24.11.2015 kl. 09:16:

Dear Mrrs Rohde, 1 ridge = 2 rounds, ie K1 round + P1 round. Happy knitting!

J'enseigne le tricot et plusieur de mes élèves me posent cette question sur le modèles Drops; "Comment on fait pour savoir la grandeur qui nous fera, ou sont les indications sur les mensurations ? Je vous remercie d'avance de prendre le temps de répondre à cette question. Au plaisir de vous lire. Merci encore de tous ces beaux patrons que vous nous faites découvrir d'années en années.

Bonjour Mme Boisclair, vous trouverez sous chaque modèle DROPS un schéma avec les mesures pour chaque taille, prises à plat, d'un côté à l'autre. Comparez ces mesures à celles d'un vêtement analogue qui vous va et dont vous aimez la forme pour trouver la taille adéquate. Bon tricot!

Made this poncho and absolutely love it! Just what I was hoping for. Made the large size even though I am petite. I was concerned the neck opening was too small and wanted it to look like the picture. It is definitely not too large. Used size 13 needles to get gauge. Looks like the picture!
