Work next row from RS as follows: Work 1 edge st in garter st, work A.11 (= 2 sts) until 2 sts remain, work first st in A.11, finish with 1 edge st in garter st.

When doing short rows and turning 6 less stitches in subsequent rows does this mean you knit 6 more stitches before you turn or 6 less stitches ? For example in the first and second turn I had to knit until there were 26 stitches left on the row on the next row do I knit till there are 20 stitches left and turn or when there are 32 left and then turn ?? Thank you

DROPS Design 20.06.2018 kl. 08:05:

Dear Mrs Tighe, you will work 6 sts less for every turn, ie on next row after the 26 sts, you will work until 32 sts remain. Happy knitting!

Bettina 01.05.2018 - 16:34:

A.5 bis A.8 über die 6 M beidseitig jedes Markierers insgesamt 2-3-2-3-4-5 x arb, bedeutet das, das man innerhalb der Markierer einschließlich der 6 M rechts und links die Muster stricken soll?

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 10:24:

Liebe Bettina, auf beiden Seiten der beiden Markierung werden Sie A.5-A.6 und A.7-A.8 stricken (wie zuvor beschrieben). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

I have been trying for 2 days to get A-1, L-XL to work out and I cannot get it. For one thing the graph is so small the yo\'s are lost. Anyhow I cannot get the right amount of stitches. Please help

Judit Csapo 06.08.2017 - 23:09:

Enligt beskrivningen i slutet av framstycke ska man sticka mönster A.11 men jag hittar inget A.11 i beskrivningen.

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 13:54:

Det stämmer att det inte finns något diagram A.11, vi ska snarast korrigera detta!

Veronique 02.08.2017 - 18:00:

Lorsque l'on fait les raccourcis faut'il rabattre les mailles que l'on ne tricote pas à la fin ou on les met en attendre e on les reprend plus tard. Merci à l'avance

DROPS Design 03.08.2017 kl. 08:24:

Bonjour Véronique, les mailles non tricotées en fin de rang pour les rangs raccourcis ne sont pas rabattues, on les reprend plus tard, quand les rangs raccourcis sont terminés. Bon tricot!

Kastner, Edeltraut 21.07.2017 - 11:10:

Hallo, habe ich es richtig verstanden, das die verkürzten Reihen auch beim Rückenteil gestrickt werden? Danke für die Antwort

DROPS Design 21.07.2017 kl. 11:55:

Liebe Frau Kastner, die verkürzten Reihen sollen beim Rückenteil auch wie beim Vorderteil gestrickt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Luana 27.06.2017 - 00:13:

Dopo aver lavorato i ferri accorciati (nella misura S é solo una volta con 26 maglie in meno ai due lati) dovrei iniziare a lavorare 42 maglie a legaccio e poi di nuovo il diagramma A5-A8 (che in totale ripeterei per due volte).Ma così facendo non riprendo il disegno del diagramma perché dopo 42 maglie non ci sarei ancora arrivata, ne avrei 50 e poi le 6 del diagramma stesso. Sbaglio qualcosa? Grazie per l 'aiuto

DROPS Design 27.06.2017 kl. 10:21:

Buongiorno Luana. Lavora le 42 maglie a legaccio poi lavora a maglia rasata le maglie che rimangono prima di poter lavorare il diagramma. Buon lavoro!

Monique 14.06.2017 - 12:27:

Je viens de terminer ce joli haut, un défi très amusant à relever pour un résultat qui tient ses promesses : élégant raffiné et confortable ! merci pour ce si joli modèle

Siv Moen 06.06.2017 - 00:14:

Hei. Skal det ikke strikkes forkortet pinne i str small? Og skal mønster 5-8 strikkes totalt 2 ganger, og bare en gang i forkortede pinner + 3 pinner rillestrikk? Dette var vanskelig....sukk

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 14:35:

Hej, Ja i str small skal A.5 til A.8 strikkes totalt 2 gange. Samtidigt efter de 2 første pinde i A.5 - A.8 strikkes der forkortede pinde (i Small) 1 gang i hver side (altså til du har 26 m tilbage, vend og gør det samme i den anden side). Nu hopper du ned til ALLE STR.

Fabienne 16.05.2017 - 13:38:

Bonjour, j'ai du mal à faire le dos et surtout à comprendre le diagramme.

DROPS Design 16.05.2017 kl. 14:23:

Bonjour Fabienne, je vous recommande de voir bien le tutoriel video (en haut de page): 'Comment tricoter A.1 - top DROPS 170-4'. Bon tricot!
