Hej Galet stor i storleken. Kan ni,rekommendera ett annat tröjmönster ?

Judy Brown 31.10.2017 - 17:45:

Is there a way to print the photo of the sweater?

DROPS Design 01.11.2017 kl. 08:40:

Dear Mrs Brown, click on "Print / Photo" to launch printing. Happy knitting!

Leonore 13.07.2017 - 23:06:

Vraagje over de mouw, ik moet bij 38 cm, afkanten voor de mouwkop, is dat 1 keer 3 steken aan iedere kant (voor maat S) dit is mij niet helemaal duidelijk.

DROPS Design 16.07.2017 kl. 12:21:

Hallo Leonore, Ja, dat klopt; je kant telkens aan elke kant (dus elk begin van de naald) 3 steken af.

Linda Wessel 01.08.2016 - 17:22:

Hei - jeg har strikket modell Orabel i str M i Cotton Merino - hvor oppgitt garnforbruk er 500g. Dette stemmer ikke - jeg er nesten ferdig med erme nr 2 og mangler halskant - men har ikke mer garn igjen. Ingen Drops butikker i Oslo fører dette garnet!

Birgitta 01.06.2016 - 22:06:

Det måste vara något fel på måtten, hur kan vidden vara 112 cm i storl S???

DROPS Design 02.06.2016 kl. 11:09:

Hej Birgitta. Den er ikke feil, omkredsen er 112 cm (56 cm per del) og modellen er vid. Med rette strikkefasthed har du 21 m per 10 cm 119/21 x 10 = ca. 56 cm.

Jeannette Prinsen 21.02.2016 - 12:20:

Ik ben begonnen met het breien van bovenstaand model, maar het valt me op dat het een oversized model gaat worden, en op de foto is dat zeker niet zo. Vergelijking met de afmetingen van andere patronen zijn de panden ook veel breder. Klopt dat wel? Graag uw reactie. Bij voorbaat dank.

DROPS Design 23.02.2016 kl. 16:12:

Hoi Jeannette. Met de juiste stekenverhouding is ieder pand ongeveer 56 tot 81 cm breed afhankelijk van de maat. Dat is inderdaad wat breder dan gewoon, maar het model op de foto is ook breder dan een ander wat meer strak model zoals bijvoorbeeld DROPS 164-14

Maaike 02.02.2016 - 12:18:

Moet ik persee een rondbreinaald gebruikwn of kan het ook gewoon met 2 breinaalden?

DROPS Design 02.02.2016 kl. 13:22:

Hoi Maaike. Deze wordt heen en weer gebreid op de rondbreinaald, dus je kan ook rechte naalden gebruiken.

Gunilla Ottosson 26.07.2015 - 13:29:

Reagerade också över måttet i omkrets. Kan det verkligen stämma att bystmåttet på large är 128 cm? Brukar ju inte vara mer än 100-110 cirka. Behöver nog få klarhet i detta innan jag vågar ge mig på detta mönster som annars är supersöt modell.

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 11:50:

Hej Gunilla, det är en rak och vid modell, välj storleken med de mått som passar dig, du hittar måtten nederst i mönstret. Lycka till!

Margo Agnew 13.06.2015 - 09:48:

Hi can you tell me the sizes of this sweater?

DROPS Design 13.06.2015 kl. 11:04:

Dear Mrs Agnew, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measures taken flat from side to side (in cm) - compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Happy knitting!

Katarina 19.05.2015 - 11:19:

Skrev fel i min fråga, omkretsen på tröjan kommer att bli 120 cm. En väldig stor tröja i stl M?? Blir glad om ni kan svara på min fråga, ska verkligen tröjan bli så stor??

DROPS Design 19.05.2015 kl. 14:28:

Hej Katarina. Ja, det er korrekt. 60 cm bredde er rigtig for en vidtfaldende tröje i den störrelse
