Hei!! Hvor finner jeg diagrammet til denne strikkeoppskriften? Jeg finner bare diagramforklaring. Hvordan begynner jeg i str. når?

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 09:10:

Hej Ingeborg, diagrammet ligger til venstre om måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Por que todos los modelos son hechos con agujas redondas?

J De Vries 07.12.2017 - 23:21:

Kunt u het patroon uitleggen

DROPS Design 08.12.2017 kl. 16:32:

Hallo J De Vries, Heb je al een proeflapje gebreid en komt de stekenverhouding overeen? In het patroon is uitgelegd hoe je de trui breit, hoeveel steken je opzet voor welke maat, etc. Misschien kun je aangeven wat er precies niet duidelijk is, nadat je het patroon goed hebt doorgelezen.

Roberta 12.04.2017 - 20:33:

Thank you for the suggestion :)

Roberta 08.04.2017 - 23:59:

Hi, is the gauge before or after blocking? I'm unsure about sizing because I think this mesh fabric will stretch out so much when washed and worn. If I knit up to 54 cm while it's on the needles, I'm afraid it will stretch down to my knees when I wear it! Any advice? I'm using Belle.

DROPS Design 12.04.2017 kl. 11:29:

Dear Roberta, you can hang the piece when measuring it to check how far it will be longer and ajust measurements with the measurement chart and the one you'd like the piece to be. Happy knitting!

Nella Mauceri 07.04.2017 - 05:37:

Got it ! Thanks very much Deirdre for your help

Nella 06.04.2017 - 01:27:

I am a new knitter, and confused about A.1 I completed the grid as shown but my stitch count reduced to 30. slip 1, K1 psso is a decrease , so how do I do that without reducing the stitch count? thank you

DROPS Design 06.04.2017 kl. 08:38:

Hi Nella, The diagram for A1 is a bit unclear - there is a yarn over (the tiny circle) before the knit 2 together and a yarn over (tiny circle) after the psso - so both times there are no decreases. On the next round you knit the yarn overs as normal to leave holes for the lace pattern. Kind regards, Deirdre.
