Begrijp ik het goed dat ik bij de overgang van A2 naar A3 4x2 steken moet samenbreien tussen elke 12 steken? Ik heb dit geprobeerd maar dan klopt mijn eerste naald van A3 niet meer. Alvast bedankt voor uw antwoord!

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 08:41:

Hallo Karin, Je hoeft niet extra te minderen. Je breit eerst A.2 In de een na laatste toer van A.2 zitten 4 mindering per herhaling van A.2 in het telpatroon verwerkt. Hierdoor past A.3 precies boven A.2

Deborah 19.08.2017 - 16:45:

Buongiorno, l'ho appena terminata e sono molto soddisfatta. Complimenti a voi e grazie per questo bellissimo modello!!!

Roxanne Korte Ruckmar 22.07.2017 - 18:52:

What is the difference between patterns r-679 and r-680?

DROPS Design 23.07.2017 kl. 10:50:

Dear Roxanne, the two sweater are indeed similar, however the r-679 is a cardigan, with an open front, buttonbands and buttons, knitted back and forth, while the r-680 is a jumper, knitted on the round. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Anita 06.04.2017 - 18:52:

Bonsoir, J'ai commencé ce modele et j'ai déjà un souci. Pour le 1er rang point fantaisie A1. On travail sur 14 mailles par motif. Et on me dit 180 mailles. Pourquoi 180? Et au 2eme rang on a 12 mailles pour un motif. Alors comment dois je faire? Merci

DROPS Design 06.04.2017 kl. 20:40:

Chere Anita! Au debut tu as 210 mailles. 210/14=15> tu as donc 15 motifs au premier tour. En travaillant d'apres le point fantaisie A.1, tu diminues 2 mailles par motif, donc 2 mailles x 15 motifs=30 mailles diminuees. Et on a maintenant: 210-30=180 mailles. Bon courage et bon tricot!

Valérie 31.03.2017 - 20:19:

Bonjour, j'ai repris les bordures des manches sur la même aiguille que le dos et le devant. Seulement, quand je tricote la partie des bordures de manches, ça tire terriblement sur l'autre partie du tricot et ça fait 1 énorme maille à chaque bout. Est-ce normal ? Merci.

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 08:33:

Bonjour Valérie, les premiers rangs peuvent paraître un peu compliqué, mais vous pouvez vous aider d'une autre aiguille circulaire pour faciliter les premiers rangs, après quelques rangs vous pourrez plus facilement reprendre toutes les mailles sur la même aiguille. Bon tricot!

Valérie 13.03.2017 - 14:31:

Bonjour la phrase "répéter ces diminutions 6 fois tous les 2 cm" veut dire qu'il faut faire la diminution puis 2 cm ou le contraire ? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 13.03.2017 kl. 15:36:

Bonjour Valérie, vous diminuez 1 m comme indiqué, puis *tricotez 2 cmn diminuez 1 m comme indiqué*, et vous répétez de *-* 6 fois au total = 7 tours de diminutions au total (= 28 m diminuées en tout, il reste 152 m). Bon tricot!

Jeg har strikket denne søde bluse. Men synes armgabet e for lille. Jeg har måtte lave den om.

Ruti 27.02.2016 - 21:31:

Is it possible to convert this pattern into a dress? but adding more stockinette rows after knitting one round of the lace pattern? I am wondering if anyone else has ever done it.

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 09:18:

Dear Ruti, you can get inspiration from our pattern for dresses, your DROPS store will help you with more tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Jeg pleier alltid å strikke str. M og begynte på oppskrift nr159-4 men det ble str. XXL. Modellen skal strikkes rundt men ser på bildet at det er søm i siden. Er det feil antall masker i oppskriften

DROPS Design 05.08.2015 kl. 15:13:

Hej Margit, Maskeantallet stemmer, husk at du minsker allerede ifølge A.1. Vi har valgt at beskrive denne model når den strikkes rundt. God fornøjelse!

Jessica 02.08.2015 - 09:43:

Bonjour, Je n'arrive pas à savoir quelle taille je dois choisir pour les modèles? Y a t il un guide des tailles? Merci

DROPS Design 03.08.2015 kl. 10:11:

Bonjour Jessica, vous trouverez à la fin des explications un schéma avec les mesures finales pour chaque taille, en cm, prises à plat, d'un côté à l'autre. Comparez les à un vêtement similaire que vous avez et dont vous aimez la taille pour trouver la taille qui vous convient. Bon tricot!
