Comment faire suivre les fils des pelotes en attente quand on tricote les manches en rond?

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 08:21:

Bonjour Anne-Christine, faites suivre le fil en hauteur et croisez-les à chaque changement de couleur - cf vidéo et description. Bon tricot!

Ingrid Olausson 18.01.2018 - 20:07:

Hej! Jag undrar lite över ärmarna. När man gjort en ärm, står det "sticka en ärm till på samma sätt". Måste man inte sticka spegelvänt? Man maskar ju av bara i en sida. Måste man inte maska av i andra sidan på ärm nr 2?

Margrethe 25.08.2017 - 12:54:

Kan det passe at knapperne til denne cardigan kun skal være 15 mm?

Maritha Hedman 03.02.2017 - 19:41:

Hej. Jag har handarbetat mycket men förstår inte hur man ska göra med färgbyte innanför kanten då blir ju färgen fel? Förstår inte heller om man ska sticka A1 A2 osv en gång eller fler.

DROPS Design 07.02.2017 kl. 14:11:

Hej Maritha. Nej, det bliver ikke fejl. Du skifter her saa du ikke har traaden ved stolpen. Men du strikker jo to pinde frem og tilbage af farve: saa 5 stolpem med farve 1, skift til farve 2 og strik pinden ud. Vend, strik 1 hel p med farve 2. Vend og strik 5 m med farve 2, skift til farve 1. Saa der er 1 rille af hver stribe - höjst en lille smule forskudt. Du strikker kund A.1 og A.2 één gang i höjden. Men du gentager flere gange i bredden, det er saa bare at strikke over det antal m som beskrevet og udför sammenstrikning som beskrevet i diagrammet.

Konni 30.07.2016 - 00:32:

Hallo wie muss ich die Aussage in der Anleitung verstehen *die kürzeren Maße bei den größeren Größen werden durch eine längere passe ausgeglichen *was muss oder soll ich denn jetzt machen ich stricke die Größe L/Xl LG. Konni

DROPS Design 01.08.2016 kl. 07:56:

Liebe Konni, Sie müssen gar nichts machen, es ist nur eine Erklärung warum die Ärmel in den grösseren Grössen kürzer sind.

Mamieflo 15.06.2016 - 15:52:

Vraiment un très joli modèle coloré sans être trop compliqué à faire puisque c'est la laine Fabel qui est ainsi faite.J'aime beaucoup et j'ai vite commandé et reçu la laine.

Mamieflo 15.06.2016 - 15:50:

Bonjour, J'ai commencé à tricoter ce joli cardigan en fabel mais je ne sais pas à partir d'où ? (pointe des triangles ou bande au point mousse) il faut mesurer pour changer les rayures de couleur; J'ai mesuré à partir des pointes pour le changement des rayures et à partir de la bande de boutonnage pour les boutonnières mais j'aimerais mieux comprendre ! J'en suis à A4. D'avance merci.

DROPS Design 15.06.2016 kl. 16:52:

Bonjour Mamieflo, sur la base de l'échantillon (30 rangs point fantaisie = 10 cm), une rayure de 8 cm = 24 rangs et 9 cm = 27 rangs (ajustez pour commencer la rayure suivante sur l'endroit). Vous pouvez mesurer le long de la bordure devant pour placer les boutonnières. Bon tricot!

Cheryll Winters 05.02.2016 - 23:31:

Thank you so much for answering my question so quickly. Totally different from what I thought. Your patterns are so complete. Your women's patterns are very feminine as well. The fact that your patterns are all free is totally amazing. I have made many of them and some of them more than once.

Cheryll Winters 05.02.2016 - 04:52:

I don't understand how to work the charts for the sleeves. When it starts you have to work chart A7 for one complete vertical and then go on to A8. When I start the A7 chart do I complete all 16 rows? Thank you for anything you can do to make this clearer.

DROPS Design 05.02.2016 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Winters, A.7 is only 2 rows, when you have worked the 2 rows in A.7 work A.8 (= 2 rows). Repeat the 2 rows in A.8 until sleeve measures 11 cm. Then work 1 time the 2 rows in A.9. Repeat then the 2 rows in A.10 until sleeve measures 22-24-26 cm... Happy knitting!
