Hej, Jag stickar mössan med stickor 4 resp 5 och har provat med 76m. Den blev jätteliten. Har ökat till 96m och stickat ca 10 cm resår o mosstickning. Mössan är ff mkt liten. Jag har huvudomfång 55cm. Stämmer verkligen antal maskor på detta mönster?

DROPS Design 17.09.2019 kl. 15:32:

Hej Marianne, hvis du strikker med 1 tråd DROPS Kid-Silk og 1 tråd Alpaca, og har 17 m på 10 cm så måler huen ca 49 cm, hvilket passer fint med et hovedmål på ca 55 cm. God fornøjelse!

Hej! Vänligen meddela om jag valt rätt stickor: Strumpsticka nr 5 Rundsticka nr 5, 40 + 60 cm långa

DROPS Design 20.11.2018 kl. 11:47:

Hei Eva. Oppskriften oppgir også (i tillegg til de du har der) rundpinne 4mm (40 + 60 cm) som skal brukes til vrangborden. Når det er sagt så er tykkelsen på pinnene kun veiledende. Du må strikke med de pinnene som gir deg den riktige strikkefastheten. I dette tilfelle er det: 17 m x 22 p glstrikk med 1 tråd av hver kvalitet = 10 x 10 cm OG 19 m x 25 p glstrikk med 1 tråd av hver kvalitet = 10 x 10 cm. Om du er usikker anbefaler vi å lage en prøvelapp for å kontrollere strikkefastheten, juster eventuelt pinnestørrelsen opp eller ned om du trenger det. Det er viktig at strikkefastheten blir overholdt for at plaggets mål skal bli riktige. God fornøyelse.

Hej. Hvordan trækker man masker igennem resten af maskerne så det holder, når man skal lukke af?

DROPS Design 18.10.2017 kl. 08:17:

Hei Susan. Bruk trådenden og en stor synål, stikk nålen igjennom de 10-11 maskene du har på pinnene (2 ganger) og stram godt, fest tråden godt. God Fornøyelse!
