Hej! I beskrivningen av halskanten står att jag ska sticka rätstickning i 2 cm efter det förhöjningen för nacken är klar. Innebär det att jag ska sticka vartannat varv räta och vartannat avigt?

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 08:42:

Hej. Ja när du stickar runt så stickar du rätstickning genom att sticka vartannat varv rät och vartannat avigt (när du stickar fram och tillbaka stickar du alla varav räta för att få rätstickning). Lycka till!

Irina 02.02.2019 - 15:55:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, ich hätte 2 Fragen: 1. Hätten Sie für mich einen Tipp wo ich die Rd in Passe am besten beginnen soll. 2. Wenn ich die Reglanabnahmen nach Anleitung mache, dann klappt es nicht so gut in den Rd. mit Umschlägen. Wenn ich die letzten 2 Maschen vor Reglan zusammen stricke und dann Umschlag, dann Abnahme, Markierer, Abnahme und jetzt Umschlag? oder keinen , gleich mit 2 Zusammen weiter? Vielen Dank im Voraus

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 11:18:

Liebe Irina, Passe können Sie an der hinteren Mitte beginnen, bei den Löchernreihe, beachten Sie, dass Sie richtig abnehmen, dh wenn nur 1 M übrig bleibe (vor den 2 Maschen der Raglan linie), diese Masche rechts stricken, dann die Abnahme für den Raglan stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annelise Holst 23.01.2019 - 14:18:

Jeg er igang med denne Freja by Drops design Jeg kan ikke få det til at passe med st strikke ret strik rundt i halskantrn, på billedet ser det ud til at der er riller, altså at der strikkes en p. Ret og en p. Vrang. Håber i kan hjælpe Mvh Annelise Holst.

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 09:53:

Hej Annelise, jo det stemmer, når du strikker retstrik rundt på rundpind strikkes hver 2.p ret og hver 2.p vrang. Retstrik frem og tilbage på pinden = ret på hver pind. God fornøjelse!

Monique Vd Burg 06.02.2018 - 19:13:

Op de foto lijkt het of de strepen op het lijf een ribbel is. Klopt het wel zoals het in de beschrijving staat? Moet dat niet zijn: 2 nld averecht? Dank voor uitleg.

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 21:03:

Hoi Monique, De strepen op het lijf zijn inderdaad ribbels en als je in de rondte breit is dat 1 naald averecht.

"Maska av för ärmhål..." inte bra, blir klumpigt! Jfr 166-3

Rian 07.06.2017 - 21:00:

Ik brei de pas, herhaal A1. Maar dan heb ik nog niet 22 keer geminderd voor de raglan (nl nog maar 16 keer geminderd) Hoe brei ik verder? Nog een keer A1 herhalen?

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 08:43:

Hoi Rian, Er staat bij de pas 'LET OP: herhaal A.1 in de hoogte.' Je moet A.1 dus 2 keer breien in totaal. Dit is ook te zien in de afbeelding. Waarschijnlijk kom je dan wel op het aantal minderingen. Veel breiplezier!

Emilie 15.11.2016 - 19:00:

Bonjour, je voudrais savoir si il n'y a pas un problème avec les rangs raccourcis, car quand je réalise cette partie, l'ensemble des rangs ne paraît pas symétrique ?

DROPS Design 16.11.2016 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Émilie, les rangs raccourcis de la ré-hausse encolure dos vont être symétriques: en commençant au milieu dos, tricotez 8-13 m tournez et tricotez 16-26 m (soit les 8-13 premières m et les 8-13 m suivantes), tournez et tricotez 24-39 m (= les 16-26 m précédentes + 8-13 m), tournez et tricotez 32-52 m (= les 24-39 m précédentes + 8-13 m) etc.. Bon tricot!

Kathryn Briggs 19.10.2016 - 22:02:

DROPS Design 20.10.2016 kl. 12:03:

Dear Mrs Briggs, dec for raglan are done on each side of the marker (= before marker + after marker), ie you will dec 8 sts 20 times in total = 160 sts dec. 304-160=144 sts. Happy knitting!
