Tasiemkę zrobiłam na szydełku. \r\nDodałam dodatkowe tasiemki w rozcięciach z boków oraz na rękawach. Ożywiło to trochę mój sweter.

Blusen bliver overhovedet ikke som på billedet, den bliver alt for kort, slidsen sidder alt for højt, den er lige til at kassere, kunne I ikke tjekke opskriften.

Marie 30.12.2016 - 14:35:

Bonjour, vos aiguilles circulaire numéro 8 sont de combien de mm de grosseur. merci

DROPS Design 31.12.2016 kl. 11:07:

Bonjour, les aiguilles circulaires no 8 ont le diametre de 8 mm. Bon travail!

Zenatti 16.09.2016 - 10:56:

Je veux faire le modele mais avec 2 aguilles pas en rond pouvez vous me faire les explications merci le modele est country stroll mdele ab-058 en alpaga boucle

DROPS Design 16.09.2016 kl. 11:06:

Bonjour Mme Zenatti, ce modèle ne se tricote pas en rond, on utilise ici une aiguille circulaire pour avoir assez de place pour toutes les mailles. Vous trouverez ici plus d'infos à ce sujet. Bon tricot!

Antoinette Colijn 08.09.2016 - 19:32:

Ik heb de trui gebreid in strepen boucle en katoen, in dezelfde kleur. Dit heb ik gedaan omdat hij van alleen boucle erg licht werd. Alle randen heb ik omgehaakt met vasten om hem meer stevigheid te geven.

Vicki Jakobsen 04.04.2016 - 13:29:

Jeg har strikket trøjen, men den er slet ikk som på billedet. alt for kort og slidsen sidder latterligt højt oppe. den får jeg ikk brugt til noget. strikkefastheden er overholdt og målene passer med mønstret. det er mega ærgerligt og garnets struktur gør at jeg ikk kan trevle op og strikke den om.. Kan i ikk tjekke mønstret?

Penso que estas instruções não se referem a este modelo, bem como os fios e as agulhas. É possivel publicaram as instruções correctas? Obrigado.

DROPS Design 01.04.2016 kl. 11:17:

Muito obtigado pela chamada de atenção. Efectivamente, havia uma troca de modelos que já foi devidamente corrigida. Mais uma vez obrigado e bom tricô!

Rosi 08.02.2016 - 15:43:

Hi :) Ich bin mit dem Stricken fertig, hab aber ein großes Problem, was das Zusammennähen betrifft. Oben an den Schulternähten soll man im Maschenstich arbeiten, aber was sollen da die beiden Reihen kraus gestrickt? Diese Reihen müsste man beim Zusammennähen verschwinden lassen, um es schön aussehen zu lassen. Was verstehe ich da nicht? Bitte um Hilfe! Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 09.03.2016 kl. 14:31:

Liebe Rosi, ich habe bei der Designabteilung nachgefragt, tatsächlich scheint mir auch ein unsichtbares Zusammennähen einfacher, wenn keine Krausrippen gestrickt werden.

Vanda 21.01.2016 - 10:10:

Mám dotaz ohledně síly jehlic. V návodu uvádíte č.7 a č.8, jedná se o jehlice síly 7mm a 8mm nebo je to v US číslování a je potřeba použít jehlice síly 4,5mm a 5mm?? AlpacuBoucle standardně pletu na jehlicích síly 5mm, tak teď si nejsem jistá. Děkuji za odpověď a zdravím V.

DROPS Design 22.01.2016 kl. 08:45:

Dobrý den, Vando, ano, jde skutečně o jehlice síly 7 a 8 mm - úplet má být trochu volnější, ležérní. Hodně zdaru! Hana

Rosi 13.01.2016 - 22:23:

Ich kann mir auch nicht vorstellen, dass 250 g genügen sollen ...
