BOLERO:
Work first a square in the round, then work out to each sleeve back and forth.

BACK PIECE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed. Cast on 12 sts with Safran and distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 (= 3 sts on each needle). Then insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker between 3rd and 4th st, 2nd marker between 6th and 7th st, 3rd marker between 9th and 10th st and 4th marker between 12th and 1st st. Then work according to A.1 – choose diagram for correct size (= 4 times). Sts with markers are corner sts, let the markers follow when working outwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically (see arrow for your size) each side will be worked seperatly = 63-67-71-75 sts along each side and 252-268-284-300 sts in total on needle. Then work only over the first 63-67-71-75 sts (= one side, sts between 4th and 1st marker), slip the other sides on stitch holders, work over sts between 2nd and 3rd marker later.
Now work piece back and forth. On next row from RS work as follows: Work 2 sts in first st, K 0-2-4-6, A.2 (= 61 sts), K 0-2-4-6, work 2 sts in last st on row = 65-69-73-77 sts. Then work as follows: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above, 1-3-5-7 sts in stockinette st, A.2, 1-3-5-7 sts in stockinette st, 1 edge st in garter st. Work edge sts in garter st until finished measurements.

When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, 27-32-36-42 sts in stockinette st, A.3 (= 9 sts), 27-32-36-42 sts in stockinette st, 1 edge st in garter st. Work A.3 2 times in total vertically. Work 0-6-0-4 rows in stockinette st. On next row from RS, dec 3-1-1-3 sts evenly = 62-74-82-92 sts. P 1 row from WS. Work A.4 – see diagram for correct size (= 12-12-10-10 sts) 5-6-8-9 times in width. Work A.4 2-2-3-3 times in total vertically. Then work A.5 (= 6 sts) 10-12-13-15 times, AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 0-0-2-0 sts evenly = 62-74-80-92 sts. Bind off when A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically.

I diagram A1 i størrelse xxl og xxxl er det falt ut noen tegn for kast og "ta 1 m løst av pinnen, 1 r, løft den løse over" på de to siste mønster omgangene.

Op het algemeen schema zie ik de laatste 27 cm (mouw) een afschuining naar de mouwmond. Ik vind echter in de uitleg nergens minderingen terug (buiten de 3 steken te verdelen over het werk). Heb ik iets over het hoofd gezien? Hoe kom ik aan de afschuining in die 27 cm? Hartelijk dank voor uw reaktie.

Kastner, Edeltraut 22.01.2018 - 09:52:

Hallo, ich komme wieder Mal nicht weiter. Die je 30 Maschen aufnehmen ist mir klar, da wo der Ärmel ist, aber wo soll ich die zusätzlichen 60 Maschen aufnehmen? Danke

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 10:43:

Liebe Frau Kastner, diese 30 M werden an den Ärmel aufgefassen - die Naht der Ärmel ist nur 27 cm, diese Maschen werden an den 13 cm beideseitig der Armel aufgefassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Eva-maria Janssen 14.09.2017 - 15:20:

Vielen Dank, für die Hilfe

Eva-maria Janssen 13.09.2017 - 21:40:

Erstmal lieben Dank für die Antwort, doch ich habe die Frage falsch formuliert. Meine Frage, Stricke ich A 2 mit den 75 Maschen vom 1. Markierer oder 150 Maschen ,vom 1.und 4. Markierer

DROPS Design 14.09.2017 kl. 08:19:

Liebe Frau Janssen, nach A.1 stricken Sie nur über die ersten 75 M (= zwischen 4. und 1. Markierer), bei der 1. Reihe in A.2 nehmen Sie 2 M zu = 77 M, dann nehmen Sie (in die letzte Größe) zu, bis Sie 95 M haben usw. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Eva-maria Janssen 12.09.2017 - 21:14:

Ich brauche bei dem Bolero,, Kamelia,, Hilfe. Und zwar fange ich jetzt mit dem Muster A 2 an. Nun meine Frage: Muß ich das Muster A2 , 4 mal stricken, oder zwei mal?

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 08:38:

Liebe Frau Janssen, A.2 wird nur 1 mal in der Höhe gestrickt, siehe unter "ALLE GR.". Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Keppler 24.09.2016 - 15:49:

Hallo! Jetzt weiß ich, was gemeint ist. Wenn man den Ärmel nicht(!) ganz zunäht, sondern nur die Schräge, bleibt eine Kante, aus der man Maschen aufnehmen kann! Vielleicht sollte man den weniger Geübten eine Chance geben, das auch zu verstehen!

Keppler 22.09.2016 - 14:29:

Hallo! Danke für das Video! Aber da ist keine Kante!!

Keppler 19.09.2016 - 11:57:

Hallo! Ich stricke jetzt seit über 30 Jahren auch anspruchsvolle Sachen aber aus der Anleitung : "20 Maschen innerhalb einer Randmasche auffassen..." Werde ich nicht schlau. Ich stricke gerade den Bolero " Kamelia". Könnten Sie mir wohl helfen?

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 13:14:

Liebe Frau Keppler, im Video zeigen wir, wie man die Maschen an einer Seitenkante innherhalb 1 Randmasche auffassen, so müssen Sie an der Seitenkante der Ärmel machen.
