Jag förstår inte heller varför det på bilden ser ut som A4 stickas 3 gånger, men i beskrivningen endast 2?

DROPS Design 30.07.2018 kl. 11:36:

Hei Pia. DU har helt rett i at A.4 er strikket 3 ganger og ikke 2 på bildet. Dette har nå blitt rettet i opppskriften. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse.

Jamie 18.03.2018 - 11:32:

Je ne comprends pas le diagramme A1. Faut il utiliser plusieurs pelotes ?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour Jamie, tricotez A.1 comme indiqué (sans vous occuper des "blancs", ils seront comblés par les augmentations), par ex rang 1 = 1 m end, 1 jeté, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 3 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end = 17 m + 2 jetés = 19 m à la fin de ce rang dans chaque A.1. Bon tricot!

Kedves Anikó! Köszönjük, hogy felhívta a figyelmet a hibára, ami azóta javításra került. Örömteli kézimunkázást kívánunk!

Anki Molander ågren 15.02.2017 - 14:16:

I diagram förklaringen är det som nr 3, två rutor med en oval i mitten = . vad betyder den?

DROPS Design 20.02.2017 kl. 14:06:

Hej. Förklaringen har nu lagts till ("1 omslag mellan 2 m. På nästa v stickas omslaget rät, det ska bli ett litet hål"). Lycka till!

Lzubov 21.04.2016 - 14:51:

Hello. How many times to repeat A4 2 times or 3 times? Thank you.

DROPS Design 21.04.2016 kl. 15:53:

Dear Mrs Lzubov, A.4 is worked a total of 2 times in height. Happy knitting!

Gisela Bencomo 13.02.2016 - 20:47:

Are all the rows in the diagrams or only the right side rows? Thanks for your help.

DROPS Design 15.02.2016 kl. 10:32:

Dear Mrs Bencomo, all rows are shown in diagram, both rows from RS and from WS. Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Lisa Berkowitz 05.02.2016 - 22:51:

I am at the waistband and need to do the last decrease row. Do I do it at the end of the stockingette/garter stitch section or at the row just prior to the purl row?

DROPS Design 08.02.2016 kl. 10:39:

Dear Mrs Berkowitz, the dec round is worked after you have worked 2 cm stockinette starting from 58-68 cm (see size) and just before the P row (folding row). Happy knitting!

In der deutschsprachigen Anleitung scheinen die Diagramme zu fehlen:

DROPS Design 07.08.2015 kl. 08:31:

Danke für den Hinweis, das wurde nun behoben.

Janni Bagge 24.06.2015 - 07:41:

Jeg forstår ikke diagram A.1. Hvor skal jeg lave omslagene? Er det før de 15 masker og efter? I mit hoved bliver der så to omslag efter hinanden. Kan det virkelig passe? I symbolerne for diagrammerne er der tegnet et omslag som er mørkere end i diagram A.1. Det figurerer ikke i diagrammerne.

DROPS Design 24.06.2015 kl. 14:20:

Hej. Första varvet på A.1 börjar och slutar med ret-maske, så det blir ikke 2 omslag efter hinanden. God fornøjelse!
