Bonjour, Je suis en train de faire les rayures, tout se passe bien, par contre là où je comprends pas c'est au dessus des rayures à 44cm deux lignes de points mousse cela serai déjà pour l'encolure, mais sur la photo c est bien plus tard ? Merci pour votre réponse. On peut aussi mettre la photo même si la laine n est pas de chez vous sur Facebook ? Cordialement

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 10:15:

Bonjour Mme Michels, les côtes mousses tricotées à 44 cm (en taille L) sont pour les emmanchures, on va diviser l'ouvrage pour les 2 demi-dos et le devant juste après, ces côtes mousse sur les 16 m des côtés se tricotent donc juste après les rayures. Vous pouvez tout à fait montrer votre ouvrage sur notre groupe Facebook si vous le souhaitez. Bon tricot!

Amalia 07.06.2019 - 19:37:

Arrivata ai 12 cm .... le diminuzioni vanno fatte dopo e prima del segnapunti? ... praticamente sul davanti?

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 19:45:

Buongiorno Amalia. I segnapunti individuano i lati del top (sarebbe la cucitura se stesse lavorando in parti separate). Deve diminuire sia prima che dopo i segnapunti, quindi sia sul davanti che sui dietro. In tutto sul ferro diminuisce 4 m. Buon lavoro!

Amalia 07.06.2019 - 14:51:

Il lavoro si sviluppa separatamente avanti e i due dietri e poi si assemblano o cosa ....

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 17:24:

Buongiorno Amalia. Lavora in un pezzo unico fino agli scalfi, avanti e indietro. Chiude poi le maglie per gli scalfi e lavora il davanti e i due dietro separatamente. Unirà poi le spalle. Buon lavoro!

Linda 08.03.2019 - 20:44:

I am knitting the small size . Please can you clarify “ when piece measures 42cm work 2 ridges over the middle 12 sts on each side “ How many stitches from centre back should I work before starting the ridges?

DROPS Design 10.03.2019 kl. 16:49:

Dear Linda, count the stitches you have on your needles, divide teh number in two. Now take out six stitches. You should knit this many stitches in the row, then 12 stitches with garter stitch and again the number of stitches you started your rows with. Happy Knitting.

Maria 08.11.2018 - 09:11:

Grazie! Mi può indicare almeno per grandi linee come fare? grazie grazie grazie! Maria

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 10:15:

Buongiorno Maria. Purtroppo in questa sede non riusciamo a dare un aiuto di questo tipo. Può contattare il suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia che le darà sicuramente qualche indicazione utile. Buon lavoro!

Maria 08.11.2018 - 08:49:

Buongiorno, ho cominciato a lavorare questo modello come mio primo lavoro. Siccome ho lavorato un po' strettino, mi chiedevo se era possibile aggiungere delle maniche per evitare che sia troppo pesante come top! Grazie Maria

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 09:05:

Buongiorno Maria. Sì, può aggiungere le maniche, della lunghezza che preferisce. Buon lavoro!

Marie-Laure 03.11.2018 - 22:01:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas les explications au début du blanc. Comment fait-on les 3 morceaux (devant et les 2 demi dos). Ou doit-on faire le rabattage des mailles. Merci

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Marie-Laure, vous tricotez de bas en haut, en commençant par le demi-dos d'un côté pour terminer par le demi-dos de l'autre côté jusqu'aux emmanchures. Après avoir rabattu les mailles des emmanchures, vous terminez chaque partie séparément: d'abord le devant puis chaque demi-dos. Bon tricot!

Manuela 26.07.2018 - 12:02:

Scusate se disturbo ancora, ho un po' di confusione per quanto riguarda le righe sui bordi a punto legaccio... Ma non si lavorano tutti i ferri a dritto? Non capisco bene come fare. Grazie e buona giornata.

DROPS Design 26.07.2018 kl. 12:50:

Buongiorno Manuela. Quando lavora le strisce, lavora p.es due ferri consecutivi sul diritto del lavoro (così non deve tagliare il filo). Per avere il legaccio lavorando 2 ferri consecutivi sul diritto, deve lavorare le maglie a diritto sul primo ferro , a rovescio sul secondo ferro. Se lavorasse le maglie a diritto su entrambi i ferri, risulterebbe maglia rasata. In modo analogo quando lavora due ferri consecutivi sul rovescio del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Manuela 07.07.2018 - 09:41:

Grazie infinite ci provo😀 se non ci riesco mi sa che vi dovrò disturbare ancora... Grazie ancora e buona giornata. Manuela

Manuela 07.07.2018 - 00:39:

Buongiorno, non riesco a capire come fare le righe portandomi dietro il filo senza tagliarlo e senza che si veda sui bordi dell'apertura dietro. Grazie infinite e complimenti per il vostro bellissimo sito web pieno di meravigliosi modelli gratuiti. Manuela

DROPS Design 07.07.2018 kl. 07:51:

Buongiorno Manuela. Per le strisce, lavorando sui ferri circolari, procede come segue: lavora la prima striscia con il bianco, sul diritto del lavoro. Non gira il lavoro, ma riporta le maglie all'inizio del ferro per lavorare  di nuovo sul diritto del lavoro con il colore blu. Adesso gira il lavoro; lavora un ferro con il bianco sul rovescio del lavoro; non gira, sposta le maglie e lavora un altro ferro sul rovescio del lavoro con il colore blu, e così via. Nel paragrafo Strisce, trova indicato come lavorare le m dei bordi. Buon lavoro!
