What are the sizes in centimetres or inches? I'm not sure which size would fit my....how wide is small, medium, large etc

DROPS Design 06.09.2019 kl. 19:18:

Dear Jane, the measure indicated in the sketch are in cm. Please compare them with a garment you have and you can find your size. Happy knitting!

Renate 04.09.2019 - 21:58:

Hallo habe die Rundpasse zum ersten mal gestrickt. Leider ist die Rückreihe nicht mit linken Maschen auf dem Diagramm angegeben. Das hat mich sehr irritiert und ich habe den Mustersatz wieder aufgezogen. Sonst waren alle Angaben super. Stricke die Jacke gleich noch mal in einer anderen Grösse. Die Videos sind sehr hilfreich.

DROPS Design 05.09.2019 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Renate, alle Reihen sind im Diagram gezeichnet, dh die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen - hier lesen Sie mehr über Diagramme. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Magda 15.06.2019 - 11:38:

Dzień dobry! Bardzo spodobal mi sie ten wzór swetra, wykonalam go w rozmiarze M, wydaje sie ciezki i duży, nie tak jak na zdjeciu. Jakby nie z tej samej wloczki tylko z jakiejs cienszej, lżejszej. Poza tym wykonczenie przy szyi jest jak dla mnie zbyt szerokie, zamknelam dodatkowo oczka po lewej stronie w ostatnim rzedzie przed sciagaczem francuskim. Sciagacz dolny zwija sie ciagle i brzydko to wyglada.

Christelle 04.05.2019 - 13:54:

Bonjour, combien de pelotes faut-il pour tricoter ce modèle en M?

DROPS Design 04.05.2019 kl. 16:48:

Bonjour Christelle. Pour la taille M, vous avez besoin de 650 g du fils Nepal, c’est-à-dire 13 pelotes. Bon tricot!

Darchy 04.05.2019 - 12:46:

Bonjour, je voulais savoir si les jete entre deux mailles qui se font en debut de diagramme doit etre effectué apres le dernier diagramme réalisé soit en fin de rang . Je vous remercie de votre réponse.

Anneke Schutte 05.07.2018 - 10:14:

Hoeveel kabelnaalden heb ik voor dit patroon nodig en maakt de dikte van de kabelnaald uit?

DROPS Design 05.07.2018 kl. 14:30:

Dag Anneke, Je hebt slechts 1 kabelnaald nodig (dat geldt voor alle kabelpatronen). De kabelnaald beïnvloedt de stekenverhouding niet, dus in die zin maakt het niks uit welke dikte je hebt, maar het werkt het makkelijkst als je eentje hebt die qua dikte in de buurt komt van de naald waarmee je breit.

Hanan 31.03.2018 - 02:40:

شكرا علي البترون الرائع ، ولكن لدي سوال انا عملت الي لكن لم افهم كيفيهLان وصل الي 159 خرزه في المقاس التنقيص بعد ذللك

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 08:09:

Dear Hanan, you repeat (A.1,A.2) a total of 11 times and dec a total of 10 sts in A.2 and inc 2 sts/dec 2 sts in A.1), so that you will dec a total of 10 sts x 11 = 110 sts. You had 269 sts at the beg. of yoke - 110 sts dec for yoke = 159 sts remain after diagram have been completed in height. Happy knitting!

Myriam 01.02.2018 - 14:23:

Bonjour, Pour la réhausse au dos, lorsque l'on commence les 7 mailles après le marqueur, on les commence juste après le marqueur ou bien faut-il commencer le rang depuis le bord du tricot (début du rang). Merci pour votre réponse, Cordialement

DROPS Design 01.02.2018 kl. 14:31:

Bonjour Myriam, on tricote d'abord sur l'endroit jusqu'au marqueur, puis les 7 m après le marqueur, on tourne, on fait les rangs raccourcis et, au dernier rang sur l'endroit, on tricote jusqu'à la fin du rang (= toutes les mailles ont été tricotées). Bon tricot!

Virginie 21.11.2017 - 22:01:

Bonjour, Je suis débutante. Pour mon échantillon, j'obtiens une rectangle de 11,5 x 9,5 cm... que dois-je faire svp pour adapter le modèle ? Merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Virginie, essayez un nouvel échantillon avec des aiguilles plus fines/grosses puis lavez votre échantillon et faites le sécher à plat (dans les mêmes conditions que votre gilet terminé). Vous trouverez ici des astuces sur l'échantillon, votre magasin saura également vous aider et vous conseiller. Bon tricot!

Ludmilla 09.09.2017 - 14:20:

På ett ställe i beskrivningen (minskningstips) står det att minskningen ska ske 4 maskor före markören. I själva beskrivningstexten står det att det ska minskas före och efter markören. Vilket gäller?

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 13:23:

Hej Ludmilla, Jo det stämmer, du minsker enligt minskningstipset. Lycka till!
