Hei. Har også probl. med å forstå str. av 3.pinne med mønster A1A2. Om man skal strikke mønster A1og A2 gjentatte ganger bortetter pinnen, så er det vanskelig å skjønne annet enn at det må bli to kast etter hverandre ifølge mønsteret; A1 begynner med ett kast og A2 slutter med et kast - og det kan jo ikke være riktig. Det må jo være noe i mellom.\r\nHåper på et forklarende, og lett forståelig, svar :)\r\nTakk:)

Ho realizzato questo poncho con il filato Andes color Erica... Bellissimo!! È un vero peccato che un filato come Cloud non sia più in produzione.. È vero che si può sostituire con due fili di Air... Ma non è la stessa cosa

Marta 25.01.2019 - 11:41:

Buongiorno, io ho ancora 2 gomitoli di cloud color grano e mi piacerebbe comunque realizzare questo poncho anche con una ridotta quantità di lana. Io sono alta 1,60 m è sono pittore magra. Con quali misure potrei realizzarlo avendo a dispostizione 100 g di cloud? Grazie

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 19:14:

Buonasera Marta, 100g di Cloud sono pochi per questo poncho, pera taglia più piccola sono necessari 200g di filato. Per un'assistenza più personalizzata può comunque rivolgersi al suo rivenditore DROPS di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Vorrei capire se posso usare i ferri tradizionali e non quelli circolari

DROPS Design 27.11.2018 kl. 17:17:

Buongiorno Barbara. Sì, il capo è lavorato avanti e indietro sui ferri. Può usare i ferri tradizionali. Buon lavoro!

Hei, Stemmer det at det blir to kast rett etter hverandre i rad 3? Først sist i A2 og så først i A1. Om det stemmer, hvordan strikkes de to kastene?

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:59:

Hei Jorun. Denne ponchoen strikkes frem og tilbake slik fra rettsiden: 2 kantmasker i rille, A.1 (= 3 masker), A.2 (= 6 masker) totalt 6-7-8 ganger, 2 kantmasker i rille. Fra vrangsiden strikkes alle masker vrangt. 3 omgang strikkes fra rettsiden som forklart over: først kantmasker, så A.1, så A.2 x antall ganger, også 2 kantmasker. A.2 strikkes altså etter A.1. 3 omgang av A.2 begynner med 3 rettmasker og så kast, felling, kast - som gjentas 6-7-8 ganger på omgangen. Det er ingen steder det blir 2 kast etterhverandre. God fornøyelse

Le patron dit de monter 43 mailles, 2 m au point mousse au début et à la fin,ce qui donne 4 mailles. Vous dites de travailler sur les 36 mailles il me semble que 43 moins 4 donne bien 39 mailles où sont les 3 mailles restantes. Le patron, me semble t’il à une erreur car quand vous faites a1 et a2 cela n arrive pas. Quel est le problème. Merci.

DROPS Design 07.09.2018 kl. 08:38:

Bonjour Mme Pelletier, tricotez ainsi: 2 m point mousse, 1 fois A.1 (= 3 m), répétez 6 fois A.2 (= 6 m) en largeur (= sur les 36 m suivantes) et terminez par 2 m point mousse, soit: 2 + 3 + 36 +2 = 43 m. Bon tricot!

Tiziana 12.07.2018 - 09:10:

Buongiorno non riesco a capire se il poncho si lavora in un unico pezzo e dove devo iniziare le diminuzioni. Grazie

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:41:

Buongiorno Tiziana, il poncho è lavorato in un unico rettangolo e cucito alla fine come spiegato. Per la lavorazione deve lavorare 4 ferri a diritto e poi seguire i diagrammi come indicato. Buon lavoro!

Hello, just want to clarify these instructions 2 sts in garter st, A.1, A.2 over the next 36-42-48 sts, finish with 2 sts in garter st. I am assuming when it says 2 sts you mean 2 stitches at the beginning of the row the pattern A1-A2 2 stitches at the end of the row. also when on WS am knitting all the way across or repeating pattern? Thank you, Jeannie

DROPS Design 24.11.2017 kl. 08:33:

Dear Mrs Pacheco, every row will start and end with K2 (both from RS and from WS) and you will work following diagrams inbetween, ie A.1 and repeat A.2 from RS (read from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left) and repeat A.2 and work A.1 from WS (read diagram from the left towards the right). Happy knitting!

Hi, I want to use Drops Eskimo instead of Drops Cloud. As I understand, I will need 8 balls of Eskimo. The question is shall I use 9 mm needles as recommended for this pattern or 8 mm as recommended for the yarn i chose ? Thank you.

DROPS Design 31.03.2017 kl. 17:02:

Dear Kate, Cloud was same group as Eskimo, so that needle size should be the same, but remember to always check your gauge before starting your project. Happy knitting!

Anja De Vries 08.11.2016 - 12:05:

Ik vind dit patroon erg mooi. Ik zou graag een col op deze poncho maken. Hoe kan ik dat het best doen? Alvast hartelijk dank voor uw reactie

DROPS Design 08.11.2016 kl. 12:16:

Hoi Anja. Ik zou een beetje zoeken in andere truien of poncho's hier op de site (in dezelfde garencategorie E) en dan kiezen welke je wilt en deze dan aanpassen voor dit patroon.
