Bonjour vous notez " = glisser 1 m à l'end, 1 m end, passer la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée - NOTE: ne pas faire cette diminution dans le 1er ni dans le dernier motif " pour les diminutions du haut du diagramme A1.... ma question, dois je faire quand même le jeté d'avant.... merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 15.11.2018 kl. 13:45:

Bonjour Mme Borsotto, cette diminution se fait au début de chaque A.1 comme le montre le diagramme, sauf pour le 1er A.1 au début du rang ni pour le dernier A.1 en fin de rang, quand vous tricotez la 1ère m de A.1, tricotez la simplement en jersey, sans diminuer (ni augmenter - cf dernier symbole). Vous n'allez faire le jeté et la diminution que dans les autres A.1 du rang. Ainsi, les 2 côtés sont symétriques. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, le 5ème et le 7ème symbole dans la légende du diagramme A1 n'apparaissent pas sur mon écran (à la place j'ai un point d'interrogation). Pouvez-vous me dire à quel symbole cela correspond dans le diagramme svp? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 19:56:

Bonjour Caroline! La legende (symboles et leur desciptions) a ete envoyee a votre adresse mail. Bon tricot!

Eva-Britt Ahlin 30.09.2018 - 18:53:

Hej! Jag har kommit tll första ökningen på A1. Min fråga är om jag ska göra ökningen även på den ”extra maskan på A1 som jag stickar innan jag avslutade med de 5 rätstickade framkantsmaskorna?

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 15:09:

Hei Eva-Britt. Nei, der du strikker kun den første masken av A.1, hverken øker eller feller du. Bare strikke den rett/vrang som anvist i diagrammet. God fornøyelse.

Sarah 09.04.2018 - 08:17:

Leider wird der Halsausschnitt sehr sehr weit. Die Jacke rutscht ständig die Schultern runter. Ich werde jetzt noch etwas dran stricken müssen. Ausserdem werde ich größere Knöpfe annähen, damit die auch halten. Sonst sehr schönes Design!!!

Eleonora 28.02.2018 - 18:48:

Ops! Scusate, non avevo visto la correzione. Grazie comunque

Eleonora 28.02.2018 - 17:21:

Salve, il diagramma A1 S-M ha 11 aumenti con gettato. Ma il diagramma parte da 12 maglie e finisce con 24. Ma 12 +11= 23. Devo fare un gettato in più o è un errore di stampa? Grazie

Rannveig 05.01.2018 - 09:48:

Takk for tilbakemelding. Er sånn jeg har forstått mønsteret men blei ethvert sittende igjen med masker på slutten av omgangen i forhold til antall masker i rapporten. Tror jeg må prøvestrikke med ett lettere garn for å se om det går opp, ellers får jeg finne ett annet prosjekt ☺️

Rannveig 04.01.2018 - 22:17:

Strikker i str L. Opplever jeg får for mange masker i forhold til rapporten etterhvert. Skal kastene som strikkes vridd for å ikke lage hull strikkes på første og siste rapport?

DROPS Design 05.01.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hei Rannveig. Om du ser på diagrammet så lager du et «hullkast» hver gang du strikker «2 masker sammen» eller «ta 1 m løst av som om den skal strikkes rett, 1 r, løft den løse m over», slik at maskeantallet er det samme, MEN så lager du også «økekast» (som strikkes vridd på neste rad for å ikke lage hull). For lettere å se hver rapport av A.1, kan du la en merketråd skille hver rapport. Når du kommer til rad 21, 23 og 25 skal du strikke 1. rapport av A.1 UTEN kastene, men de neste 9 rapportene skal ha med kastene og de strikkes IKKE vridd på neste pinne (det skal lages hull), siste rapport av A.1 skal heller ikke ha med kastene. God Fornøyelse!

Beim Stricken der Jacke in Größe S-M ist mir ein Fehler aufgefallen. In Reihe 21 des Lochmusterrapports müsste eine Zunahme kommen, da es in der nächsten Reihe ein Kästchen mehr gibt, oder?

DROPS Design 10.11.2017 kl. 07:53:

Liebe Sarah, Danke für den Hinweis, Designteam wird Diagram korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
