Wie stricke ich das Muster für die maschenprobe? Ulrike

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 09:27:

Liebe Ulrike, Sie können z.B. A.2 wie in der Größe M stricken (= eine Markierungsfaden zwischen den 20 Maschen legen, damit Sie diese Maschenanzahl vergleichen können). Denken Sie immer daran, Ihre Maschenprobe zuerst waschen und trocken lassen, dann mal schauen ob die Nadelgröße stimt oder noch mal mit kleineren/größeren Nadeln eine Maschenprobe stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ciao, sto lavorando questo modello e lo trovo molto divertente, vorrei chiedere quante volte va ripetuto, per una misura s, lo schema a2, perchè non riesco a capirlo dalla spiegazione...ho dedotto dall'immagine che i motivi alla fine saranno 19 e quindi procedo, spero di fare bene...grazie mille

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 08:54:

Buongiorno Barbara, non c'è un numero definito di ripetizioni del diagramma A.2, deve iniziare a lavorarlo quando viene indicato e continuare fino a quando il lavoro misura 17 cm per la taglia S e poi seguire le indicazione fornite nel testo. Buon lavoro!

جميل ❤️️ شكرا

De bovenrand krult heel erg om. In het patroon staat met heen en weer breien een naald recht en dan een naald averecht te beginnen. Maar op de foto lijken de eerste twee naalden ribbelsteek over de hele breedte te zijn. Zo staat het niet in het patroon getekend volgens mij.

Hoi Corina, Ik denk dat je gelijk hebt, maar ik heb het even doorgegeven aan de designafdeling om te controleren.

Skulle vara än bättre med trekvartsärm, ngt vidare sådan.
