Li. Vordert - Ges.M 139, dann 30 M stilllegen, die nächsten 45 M stricken u über die übrigen 64 M 3 Krausr str, dann abketten. Nach meinem Verständnis sind die 64 M die Seitennaht. Anschließend sollen die 45 + die 30 stillgelegten M wieder auf die Nadel u. abwechselnd sollen über 75 M 2 R stricken/ 2kurze Reihen stricken. Die Reihen gehen über den Raglanärmel?? ich verstehe es nicht. Gibt es eine Zeichnung von dem Vorderteil?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 12:30:

Liebe Frau Kopmann, welche Grösse stricken Sie und wie weit haben Sie jetzt gestrickt?

Melanie 13.09.2018 - 15:12:

Guten Tag, verstehe ich das richtig, dass bei den Zunahmen am Rückenteil so vorgegangen wird: die Maschen die zwischen den Umschlägen liegen werden immer um 2 Maschen erweitert: also 1. Zunahme: 1 U, 1 re, 1 U, 2 re, ..., dann 2. Zunahme: 1 U, 3 re, 1 U, 2 re, ..., dann 3. Zunahme 1 U 5 re, 1 U, 2 re, ..., dann 4. Zunahme 1 U, 7 re, 1 U, 2 re, 1 U, 7 re,. ... usw. aus den 7 werden dann 9, dann 11 .... usw Herzlichen Dank

DROPS Design 13.09.2018 kl. 15:29:

Liebe Melanie, ja genau, wie dieses Video zeigt - es muß auch immer 2 Maschen in der Mitte sein. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Brigitte Beutler 30.04.2018 - 15:08:

Wo finde ich bitte den Hinweis auf den Farbwechsel - wie im gezeigten Modell - und ob er mit 2fädigem Kid Silk gestrickt wird?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 15:43:

Liebe Frau Beutler, die Jacke wird mit 1 Faden von jeder Garnqualität (= 1 Faden Delight + 1 Faden Kid-Silk) gestrickt. Delight und Kid-Silk gehören beide zur Garngruppe A, damit können Sie Delight durch 1 Faden Kid-Silk ersezten (und dann mit 2 Fäden Kid-Silk stricken). Gerne wird Ihnen Ihr DROPS Laden damit helfen, eine neue Farbe herauszufinden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Karen Payne 09.03.2018 - 23:23:

Is there any way of getting help with this pattern? I'm an experienced knitter, but have reached an impasse with the pattern and can't get any further as I just don't understand it?

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 11:07:

Dear Mrs Payne, there is a video showing how to work the beginning of back piece see it here. Happy knitting!

Karen Payne 09.03.2018 - 23:21:

This pattern has got me absolutely stumped and I am an experienced knitter. I am having problems with the eyelet pattern. I am working on the back piece, and am doing the first full eyelet row. Up the side is OK, but the instructions for the eyelet pattern over the top part where there already are increasing eyelets from a previous row is very unclear and I just don\\\\\\\'t understand it.

GRIMAL 10.01.2017 - 16:54:

Bonjour, j'ai réalisé ce gilet, aussi joli à porter qu'agréable à tricoter ! cependant, les quantités préconisées sont trop importantes : pour une taille M, j'ai utilisé moins de 6 pelotes de delight (au lieu de 7) et 3 pelotes de kid silk (au lieu de 6 ! ). Mais bravo pour le modèle :)

Fabienne 09.01.2017 - 10:55:

Désolée mais vous ne me donnez aucune solutions..... Vous me souhaitez bon tricot mais hélas, en suivant à la lettre la vidéo je n'y arrive pas..... Je vous dis que c'et IMPOSSIBLE avec beaucoup de mailles !!!! J'ai acheté la laine et je ne peux pas pas faire ce modèle !!!!!

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 13:26:

Bonjour Fabienne, pour toute assistance personnalisée à la réalisation de votre ouvrage, vous pouvez vous adresser au magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine ou bien au forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Fabienne 08.01.2017 - 21:35:

Avant toute chose j'ai regardé la vidéo "comment commencer le dos", mais la vidéo est réalisée avec une petite cinquantaine de mailles, hors avec 130 mailles sur l'aiguille circulaire les choses sont bien différente !!!!!! Je n'arrive pas a tricoter un rangs complet, arrive un moment ça coince au point de ne plus pouvoir avancer.... Je ne vois vraiement pas comment faire....

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 09:27:

Bonjour Fabienne, la vidéo montre simplement la technique, la façon dont on va procéder dès le début, quelque soit la taille et le nombre de mailles. Suivez bien les indications pour votre taille et suivez en même temps les augmentations (jetés) tout en suivant la vidéo. Bon tricot!

Alexandra 21.04.2016 - 20:18:

On sleeves pattern: After the mid 6 sts are cast off, we have to work right and back rows, not cirlular! And we have to make dec on the each side of the piece. Correct?

DROPS Design 22.04.2016 kl. 09:08:

Dear Alexandra, that's right, after you have cast off the 6 sts mid under arm continue back and forth dec 1 st on each side ie at the beg and at the end of row every 4th row/ every other row / every row - see size. Happy knitting!

Darlene Sinclair 29.03.2016 - 04:10:

I don't see the pattern for the collar?? Please advise and thank you.

DROPS Design 29.03.2016 kl. 11:02:

Dear Mrs Sinclair, the collar is worked over the 22-32 sts you slipped on a st holder - see at the end of "left front piece", the last 3 lines. Happy knitting!
