Het patroon klopt niet. Er staat bij voor- en achterpand aangegeven dat je A2 en A3 vier keer moet herhalen voor alle maten. Dan kom je veel steken tekort als je M breit. Na veel rekenwerk kwam ik er achter dat je geen vier, maar drie keer moet herhalen.

Christine 21.02.2018 - 08:41:

Bonjour, Merci pour ce très joli modèle que je tricote en taille S. Je voudrais savoir comment tricoter les mailles qui se trouvent à cheval entre A2/A3 ou A3/A4 quand on doit répéter 4 fois A3? (exemple 9ème rang du diagramme) Merci d'avance pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Christine, au 9ème rang par ex, vous tricotez A.2 et faites 1 jeté (= 6 m dans A.2) et tricotez ensuite la m suivante ensemble à l'end avec la 1ère m de A.3 et ainsi de suite. À la fin de A.3, faites 1 jeté (= dernière m de A.3) et tricotez la dernière m de A.3 avec la 1ère m du A.3 suivant (= 1ère m du A.3 suivant). Veillez à toujours bien avoir le bon nombre de mailles dans chaque diagramme, aidez-vous de marqueurs si besoin. Bon tricot!

Anne Gro Berge Karlsen 30.10.2017 - 11:01:

Det er feil i mønster for str M. Det står at A2 skal strikkes 4 ganger, men skal bare strikkes 1 gang. Kan dere korrigere dette på nye mønster

Sylvie 21.09.2017 - 20:22:

Bonjour, Je tricote la taille S de ce joli modèle, mais arrivée au 9 ème rang je me trouve avec des mailles en plus sur tous les diagrammes. Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 22.09.2017 kl. 09:49:

Bonjour Sylvie, vous devez toujours bien avoir le même nombre de mailles, les diminutions du point ajouré sont toutes compensées par 1 jeté. En taille S vous tricotez: 1 m lis, 1 x A.2 (= 6 m), 4 x A.3 (= 4 x 14 m = 56 m), 1 x A.4 (= 9 m) et 1 m lis. N'hésitez pas à ajouter des marqueurs entre chaque diagramme à répéter pour pouvoir bien vous repérer et vérifier votre nombre de mailles. Bon tricot!

Maria Santos 12.01.2017 - 19:04:

Takk for svar. I mönsterdiagrammet er det i A2= 6 m og i A3 =14 m, tilsammen = 20 m (ikke 56 m som i deres svar). Dette er i störrelse S og M, men jeg strikker störrelse L. Det er i hht. mönsterdiagram A2 =7 m og A3 = 16 m, tilsammen 23 m. I hht oppskrift skal disse to (A2 og A3) strikkes 4 ganger i störrelse L. Er det jeg som er dum eller er deres svar ikke riktig?

DROPS Design 17.01.2017 kl. 14:43:

Hej Maria. Ok, men det aendrer ikke meget i hvordan du skal strikke. Du skal laese paa samme maade: strikk 1 kant-m rille, A.1 0 gang, A.2, A.3 4 ganger i alle str, A.4, A.5 0 gang, 1 kant-m rille: 1+0+7+(4x16)+10+0+1 = 83 masker strikket

Maria Santos 09.01.2017 - 18:10:

Ville gjerne ha et svar paa mitt spörsmaal (03.01.17) da jeg har begynt aa strikke denne lekre genseren, men har stoppet opp i paavente av et svar.

DROPS Design 10.01.2017 kl. 13:39:

Hej Maria. Vi skal faa set paa alle spörgsmaal saa hurtigt vi kan. Der kan desvaerre vaere ekstra ventetid ligenu da vi har travlt med at indhente alt fra ferien :)

Maria Santos 03.01.2017 - 17:19:

Har strikket bakstykket med höyre og venstre skulder og lagt opp 27 m tilsammen 83 m ( strörrelse L). Skal dermed begynne paa mönster: A1, A4 og A5 skal ikke strikkes i denne störrelsen, A2 og A3 tilsammen 23 m (16 + 7) skal strikkes 4 ganger. Det blir 92 m. Hvordan er det mulig da det er 83 m minus 2 kantm = 81 m igjen til mönster?

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 16:07:

Hej Maria. Du strikker: Strikk 1 kant-m rille, A.1 0 gang (dvs, du strikker ikke A.1!), A.2 (= 6 m), A.3 4 ganger (= 4 x 14 m: 56) i alle str, A.4 (= 9 m), A.5 0 (altsaa ikke strikkes), 1 kant-m rille. Masker som ikke går opp i mønsteret mellom A.1 og A.2, og A.4 og A.5 strikkes i glstrikk.

Isa 26.11.2015 - 16:10:

Deuxième modèle qui me pose problème.... je suis pourtant une tricoteuse chevronnée, diagramme en xl est faux , des explications manquent (nombre de mailles supplémentaires à tricoter en jersey). Habituée par le passé à tricoter vos modèles j'abandonne.... avec de la laine sur les bras car rien ne correspond sur les derniers modèles : ni le numéro d'aiguille, ni les diagrammes ni même le fil (parfois utilisé en double et non précisé !). Très décue.

DROPS Design 26.11.2015 kl. 16:25:

Bonjour Isa, pouvez-vous préciser les erreurs dont vous parlez pour que les vérifications soient faites. Vous trouverez à droite de la photo sous chaque modèle la tension de référence, soit pour celui-ci 15mx19 rangs jersey = 10x10 cm, avec des aiguilles 6 ou celles qui vous permettront d'obtenir votre échantillon. Quand un fil est tricoté en double, cette mention est toujours indiquée de type "avec 2 fils". Rappelez-vous que vous pouvez toujours recevoir de l'aide et une assistance auprès de votre magasin DROPS. Bon tricot!

Anne Marte Spydslaug 13.07.2015 - 23:10:

Hei. Jeg klarer ikke helt å skjønne hvor rillekanten på forstykket og bakstykket skal være? Skal rillekanten være inn mot halsen eller ut mot erme? For i følge begynnelsen av oppskriften forstår jeg det slik at den skal være inn mot halsen. Men så står det etter at de to små stykkene er satt sammen med x masker i mellom "fortsett med glattstrikk og 1 kantmaske rille i hver side"....

DROPS Design 30.07.2015 kl. 14:25:

Hej Anne, Kantm i rille skal være yderst mod skulderen og de nye masker slår du op ind mod halsen på begge skulderstykker. God fornøjelse!

Pat Ellis 13.07.2015 - 14:01:

Working on this sweater now but the graph seems to be completely wrong. If I did it the way it's graphed, there would be 2 sizes of diamonds but that's not what's pictured. Am reworking the graph using a section of the graph provided. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 11:14:

Dear Mrs Ellis, diagrams are correct as they are, I personnally worked this sweater and it worked fine. Remember to follow diagram for your size to get correct result. Happy knitting!
