Liebes Drops-Team, vielen Dank für die Antwort. Aber wo werden die Abnahmen gemacht? gleich am Anfang nach dem Markierer bei Musterbeginn? dann verschiebt sich ja das Muster oder?

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 14:45:

Liebe Frau Wolf, die Abnahmen sind bei der 3. Reihe in A.1 gestrickt: 1 M re, 2 M re zs, 15 M re, 1 M wie zum Rechtsstr abheben, 1 M re, die abgehobene M überziehen = es sind noch 18 M in jedem A.1. Dann stricken Sie A.1 weiter über diese 18 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Claudia 25.07.2018 - 06:30:

Hallo liebes drops Team! Ich mache gerade das top un frage mich ob bereits nach dem Anschlag in jeder zweiten Runde eine Abnahme erfolgt während ich Muster A1stricke? Das ist nur an der Maschenzahl ersichtlich aber im Text steht es nicht beim Top?

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:21:

Liebe Claudia, es stimmt so, bei 2. R in A.1 werden 2 M in jedem A.1 abgenommen = es bleiben 18 M in jedem A.1, und 270-306-324-360-396-432 auf der Nadel. A.1 wie im Diagram gezeigt weiterstricken bis alle Reihe gestrickt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hej...er nået op til bærestykket nu og sidder og læser opskriften.........er det korrekt læst at der KUN er 1 knaphul bagpå 🤔🤔

Rouillé Sylvie 05.03.2018 - 12:57:

Bonjour, et tout d'abord merci pour la gratuité de vos modèles. Je n'ai encore jamais tricoté avec des aiguilles circulaires, et j'ai un peu de mal à m'y retrouver. Il semble que ce pull soit ouvert sur le dos, or, si je comprends bien les explications, et la vidéo , on le tricote en rond. Pouvez -vous m'expliquer ? très cordialement. Sylvie

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 14:22:

Bonjour Mme Rouillé, le top se tricote de bas en haut, d'abord en rond, puis en allers et retours pour la fente de boutonnage du dos, on rabat ensuite les mailles des emmanchures et on termine le haut du top en allers et retours pour faire les bretelles. Bon tricot!

Valeria Giacometti 08.07.2017 - 20:34:

Buonasera. Sto lavorando il modello a ferri dritti. Ad un certo punto per realizzare lo sprone lo schemi mi dice di lavorare sul rovescio le prime 24 maglie inserire 1 segno avviare 43 maglie inserire 1 segno e cosi via (ho dimezzato proprio perché sto usando i ferri dritti). Ho però un problema: come si avviano nuove maglie (presumo non siano aumenti) dopo averne lavorate un certo numero? Grazie

DROPS Design 08.07.2017 kl. 21:33:

Buonasera Valeria. Nelle spiegazioni del testo, il giro inizia al centro sul dietro, lavora metà dietro, avvia le maglie per la spallina e poi procede con il davanti. Lavorando (se capiamo correttamente) il davanti e il dietro separatamente, deve avviare metà delle maglie indicate per la spallina. Per avviare le maglie su un lato, può esserle di aiuto il video sotto. Buon lavoro!

Christine Edwards 31.05.2016 - 17:38:

No picture of the back of the top, I am having trouble working out whether I should be making buttonholes in the 5 stitch band or the other side of the back yoke. Is the 5 stitch band visible? If it is hidden as the assembly instructions seem then surely the buttons need to be on the 5 stitch band. can you help

DROPS Design 01.06.2016 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Edwards, the 5 sts cast on at the beg of yoke are for the button band, button holes will be worked there, ie at beg of row from RS. Happy knitting!

Ariane 12.05.2016 - 16:04:

Thank you so much! A beautiful pattern, fun to make, and fun to wear!

Karin 13.04.2016 - 08:58:

Det ska inte stå "upprepa A2 totalt 2 ggr" utan "sticka A2..."

Margit Spaan 12.04.2016 - 14:07:

Ik kom er niet uit. Brei A2 boven A1. Herhaal 2x. Brei ik dan totaal 2 of 3 maal het stuk?

DROPS Design 12.04.2016 kl. 14:54:

Hoi Margit. Er staat: Herhaal A.2 2 keer in totaal in de hoogte. Dus je breit A.2 2 keer.

Dilianne 01.04.2016 - 09:41:

Ik heb garen 32 x 48 nld. is 10x10. Als ik dit voor dit model dubbel neem, dubbele draad, zouden de afmetingen dan nog kloppen c.q. zou dit uberhaupt kunnen? Bedankt

DROPS Design 01.04.2016 kl. 10:05:

Hoi Dilianne. Brei een proeflapje met dubbele draad en kijk of de stekenverhouding voor het patroon klopt: 24 st x 32 nld tricotsteek = 10 x 10 cm.
