Habe diese Jacke jetzt das zweite Mal gestrickt, nun in Farbe Natur. Der Schnitt ist perfekt, man muss nur darauf achten, dass die Ärmel nicht zu lang werden. Auch in hell ist sie sehr apart und wird meine Sommergarderobe sehr schick ergänzen - vielen Dank mal wieder!!!

Elaine 03.01.2018 - 14:27:

Hi, there! Lovely pattern. Working up beautifully. It looks like the sleeves are worked flat, even though the instruction indicates a circular needle. Am I reading that correctly? Farther along there is a sleeve seam which is mentioned separate from the armhole seam. Is there a reason why the sleeves aren't worked in circle?

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 13:17:

Dear Elaine, sleeves are worked back and forth on circular needle to get enough room for all sts. Designer sometimes rather work sleeves back and forth so that pattern will match properly around. Happy knitting!

Desseaux 05.03.2017 - 21:47:

Bonsoir je suis en train de faire le modele maja by drops design drops 160-3 taille s je monte 177 mailles et apres les diminutions avec le diagramme a.1 je devrais me retrouve avec 137 mailles et non je me retrouve avec 150 mailles comment faire merci

DROPS Design 06.03.2017 kl. 10:12:

Bonjour Mme Desseaux, vous répétez 10 fois A.1 au total, soit 10 x 16 m au 1er rang de A.1: 8 m de bordure, 10 x A.1 (=10x16= 160 m), 1 m end, 8 m de bordure. Dans chaque A.1 vous allez diminuer 4 m, il reste 12 m au dernier rang de A.1: 8 m de bordure, 10 x A.1 (= 10x12=120), 1 m end, 8 m de bordure = 137 m. Bon tricot!

Corrie Septer 18.02.2017 - 11:54:

Hallo Moet ik nu wel of niet de 8 stk aan weerskanten bij het opzetten van de l optellen?

DROPS Design 21.02.2017 kl. 16:20:

Hoi Corrie. Er staat in het patroon: Zet losjes 177-193-209-225-241-257 st op (incl. 8 voorbies st aan elke kant) met rondbreinld 7 mm en Air. Inclusief betekent dat de voorbiesst zitten in het totaal antaal st. Je moet niet extra optellen.

Isabelle Thériault 14.02.2017 - 04:04:

Je crois qu'il y a une erreur dans le nombre de mailles pour les manches. Elles sont beaucoup trop étroites. Après avoir cousu les manches sur le chandail, je dois les enlever et les refaire avec au moins 42 m.

DROPS Design 14.02.2017 kl. 09:48:

Bonjour Mme Thériault, pensez à toujours bien conserver la même tension que pour votre échantillon pour avoir le résultat optimal. Bon tricot!

Anne Sherren 14.01.2017 - 23:34:

This is for DROPS 160-3 Jacket.i have just made my first button hole and have proceeded to work diagram 1 again but have ended up decreasing stitches from 175 to 135 can you explain?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 09:40:

Dear Mrs Sherren, please make sure you were working diagrams as in chart, ie number of sts in each repeat should be constant. it can be a good idea to add a marker between each repeat so that you can always check your number of sts. Happy knitting!

Inge Nielsen 02.01.2017 - 14:07:

Hej, jeg har lavet en strikke prøve og er nu i tvivl om hvad jeg skal gøre. Jeg har på pinde nr 7 strikke 13 masker og 18 pinde. Mit resultat blev 11x 9 cm. Hvad gør jeg? Vælger en mindre pind, således at breden passer eller en større, således at højden passe? Venlig hilsen Inge.

DROPS Design 10.01.2017 kl. 14:10:

Hej Inge. Jeg ville nok pröve en mindre pind, saa i hvert fald bredden bliver god. Vask ogsaa pröven - den kan give lidt forskel (og en mere korrekt strikkefasthed). Det er altid nemmere at korrigere i höjden end at have end for smal eller for bred jakke.

Francine COLLET 18.11.2016 - 17:26:

Bonjour! Après avoir tricoté le diagramme A1, je me retrouve avec une quantité de mailles bien inférieure à 149 (comme indiqué dans les explications) Ne manque-t-il pas des jetés dans ce diagramme? Merci

DROPS Design 18.11.2016 kl. 17:39:

Bonjour Mme Collet, on tricote ainsi en taille M sur les 193 m: 8 m point mousse, 11 fois les 16 m de A.1, 1 m jersey et 8 m point mousse. Dans A.1, on va diminuer 4 m au total dans chacun des 11 répétitions, soit 44 diminutions au total, il reste alors: 193-44= 149 m. Bon tricot!

Ellen 25.07.2016 - 06:47:

Sorry, laatste vraag verwijderen alsjeblieft. Het was midden in de nacht en blijkbaar kon ik niet meer rekenen. 😳

Ellen 25.07.2016 - 00:59:

Maat XL moet 2 meerderen tot 175 steken. Patroon A3-A4 is over 3 steken (6 en 3). 175-16=159. Dat is niet deelbaar door drie, dus kom ik niet uit. Andere maten wel deelbaar door 3. Meerderen tot 176 (dus 3 steken)?

DROPS Design 25.07.2016 kl. 15:46:

Hoi Ellen. Je breit zoals er staat in het patroon: Brei nu volgens telpatroon A.3 en A.4 als volgt: 8 voorbies st in ribbelst, herhaal A.3 tot er 11 st over zijn, brei A.4 en 8 voorbies st in ribbelst. Dus: 8 voorbiesst in ribbelst, A.3 tot er 11 st over zijn (156 st volgens A.3 = 26 herhalingen), eindig met A.4 (= 3 st) en 8 voorbiesst in ribbelst = 175 st gebreid.
