----------------------------------------------------------

SNOWMAN:
Work back and forth in GARTER ST - see explanation above - on circular needle. First work the bottom then work the body and head.
Cast on 9 sts on circular needle size 8 mm with off white.
ROW 1: K all sts.
ROW 2 (= RS): * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
ROW 3: K all sts - K the YOs twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of sts instead of front) to avoid holes (= 17 sts).
ROW 4: * K 2, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, finish with K 1.
ROW 5: As 3rd row (= 25 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

Then continue on garter st over all sts until piece measures 20 cm (adjust so that next row is from RS). On next row, dec 31 sts evenly (i.e. approx. every 4th st) = 90 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 30 cm (adjust so that next row is from RS). On next row, dec 18 sts evenly (i.e. approx. every 5th st) = 72 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 34 cm (adjust so that next row is from RS). Work as follows: * K 2, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 54 sts. On next row from RS, dec 12 sts evenly = 42 sts. The body is finished. Insert 1 marker here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! On next row from RS, inc 24 sts evenly for head = 66 sts. When piece measures 15 cm from marker (adjust so that next row is from RS), dec 8 sts evenly = 58 sts. Repeat dec on every row from RS 6 more times = 10 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Cast on 12 sts on needle size 5 mm with black. Work in stocking st until piece measures 13 cm. Switch to light blue. Work 1 ridge in garter st AT THE SAME TIME inc 6 sts evenly = 18 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 18 cm. Work all sts K 2 tog = 9 sts. Work 1 row. On next row K 2 and 2 tog until 1 st remains, 1 st in garter st = 5 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts (NOTE: Adjust so that yarn is long enough for assembly). Sew sleeve tog in outer loops of edge sts with light blue, then black. Make another arm.

Sew body tog in outer loops of edge sts. Before sewing it entirely tog place a regular plastic plate in the bottom so that the snowman has something to stand on. Fill the body and head with cotton wool (or use an old pillow) before sewing it tog. Tighten snowman tog in the bottom. Sew hat tog in outer loops of edge sts. Tighten tog the top of hat. Sew on eyes and buttons. Sew nose tog in outer loops of edge sts. Fill nose with some cotton wool and fasten on face. Fill arms with some cotton wool and fasten on body.

Modell nr ee-519\r\nHei, har strikket 20 cm på snømannen som det står. (Deretter fortsettes det med riller over alle m til arb måler 20 cm (avpass at neste p er fra retten).) hvordan gjør jeg dette? Kutter jeg av tråden og beg på nytt på rettsida, eller? Da blir det jo to omg med rett over hverandre og ikke rillestrikk? Ser frem til svar

Susan 08.11.2018 - 11:23:

Hej. Hvordan strikker man på rundpind, når man skal starte med 9 masker?

DROPS Design 09.11.2018 kl. 10:35:

Hej Susan, du strikker frem og tilbage på rundpind ifølge opskriften. Se her hvordan du gør det:

Goedenavond, is er ook een haak versie van deze sneeuwman ?? hier is vast belangstelling voor !! m vr gr carla de graaf

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 15:16:

Hoi Carla. Nee, op dit moment hebben wij geen gehaakte versie.

Diana Blunier 09.05.2016 - 11:27:

Guten Tag Ich habe den Boden gestrickt gem. Anleitung jedoch nur mit einem drittel der maschenangabe, da ich den schnemann nich so gross haben will. Nun hat mein boden die form eines dreiecks und ich weiss nicht, wie ich diesen zusammennähen soll, dass es einen schönen runden boden gibt. Danke für ihre hilfe. Lg

DROPS Design 10.05.2016 kl. 09:11:

Liebe Diana, das ist von hier aus schwierig zu sagen, wir können nur weiterhelfen, wenn Sie genau nach unseren Anleitungen arbeiten. Grundsätzlich sollten Sie eher ein dünneres Garn nehmen, wenn Sie Figur verkleinern möchten, dann bleiben die Proportionen besser erhalten.

Het patroon is nu aangepast.

José 07.02.2016 - 18:08:

Een vraag: bij het breien van het lijf worden er steeds 8 st. gemeerderd. Bij 14 x meerderen kom ik uit op een stekenaantal van 121 st. ipv 119 st.. Heb ik ergens iets over het hoofd gezien? Bij het verder breien zou ik dan 2 st. extra moeten rekenen. Lijkt me voor het eindresultaat niet veel uitmaken, maar kunt u mij antwoord geven op bovenstaande vraag?

DROPS Design 10.02.2016 kl. 15:54:

Hoi José. Ik ben met je eens. Met 8 keer meerderen per keer kom ik ook uit op 121 ipv 119. Ik heb het doorgegeven aan ons Design Team, maar ik kan helaas niet zeggen hoelang een correctie zal duren op dit moment. Ik zou doen als voorgesteld en 2 extra berekenen, het gaat volgens mij ook niet veel verschillen (of dan gewoon 2 extra st minderen naar 90 st).

Bente Hallager Askholm 01.11.2015 - 15:56:

Snemandens krop: Det passer ikke med de 119 m. Der bliver jo unægtelig (8 x X) + 1 maske. dvs. 121 masker (eller 113 m), og så skal der tages 31(alternativt 32) m ind til de 90

DROPS Design 02.11.2015 kl. 11:05:

Hej Bente, Jo opskriften stemmer, bare følg opskriften, det gør ikke noget hvis du har en udtagning mere eller mindre på sidste omg, men sørg for at få det antal m som står i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

GobertBernadette 09.10.2015 - 22:47:

Il semble qu'il y a une erreur au niveau du corps à 30cm vous dites faire 18 augmentations alors qu'il faut faire 18 diminutions pour arriver de 90 mailles à 72 mailles.

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 11:01:

Bonjour Mme Gobert et merci, c'est exact, la correction a été faite. Bon tricot!

Natalie 16.09.2015 - 14:19:

Deze sneeuwpop ziet er leuk uit, maar ik zou hem willen haken ipv breien. Is er geen patroon voor.

DROPS Design 16.09.2015 kl. 16:58:

Hoi Nathalie. Hier is een patroon voor een gehaakte sneeuwpop. Hij is wel kleiner, maar misschien kan je aanpassen groter maken. Veel plezier mee.

Jytte 31.08.2015 - 14:27:

Jeg kan ikke få antallet af udtagninger i bunden til at passe med 119 masker. Der skal tages 8 masker ud på hver retpind. Det kan jeg enten få det til at blive 13 pinde med udtagning (113 m i alt), 14 pinde (121 m) eller 15 pinde (129 m). Er det mig, der ikke kan regne, eller er der en skrivefejl? På forhånd tak for hjælpen.

DROPS Design 03.09.2015 kl. 20:12:

Hej Jytte, ja men så tager du bare 6 m ud sidste gang så du får 119 m som der står i opskriften. God fornöjelse!
