Szép estét. Számoltam és a kardigán eleje:26-26 szem, ujja:19-19 szem, háta:42 szem =132 szem. Remélem minden jó lesz. Ûdvözlettel Mária

Maria Laczkó 03.03.2019 - 16:24:

Nem tudom az elosztásnál a háta és az ujjak szemeinek a száma nem hiányos? Nem tiszta, hol van az eleje,ujja és a háta, mikor a szemeket elosztom a raglán miatt. Köszönöm válaszát.

Eva 02.03.2019 - 19:42:

Pour le fil vous indiquez: n°05, vieux rose. En ligne le vieux rose a le n°04. Le n° 05 s'appelle "bruyère". De quel couleur s'agit-il sur votre modèle? Merci!

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 09:08:

Bonjour Eva, le nom des couleurs est parfois ajusté au fur et à mesure du temps pour s'ajuster à la palette, suivez toujours bien le numéro de la couleur, soit n°5 ici. Pour toute info complémentaire ou aide au choix de la couleur, n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone, on saura vous conseiller. Bon tricot!

Mme PETIT 12.02.2019 - 12:31:

Bonjour, Si j'ai bien compris, la manche se fait en A1 A2 A2 soit 15 mailles et les autres mailles faut il les tricoter en jersey ou continuer le point fantaisie? Merci pour votre réponse et vos jolis modèles qui m'ont redonnés le goût du tricot

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 13:39:

Bonjour Mme Petit, seules les mailles des manches se tricotent au point ajouré, en commençant par A.1, répétez ensuite A.2 sur les mailles suivantes, les 2 mailles du raglan se tricotent en jersey, comme celles des devants et du dos. Tricotez les augmentations du dos et des devants en jersey et celles des manches au point ajouré (A.2). Bon tricot!

Annica Bruceä 22.01.2019 - 10:44:

Hej, hade en fundering runt de mönsterstickade partierna, på koftans vänstra sida börjar man med A1 och sedan A2 men då man kommer till högra sidan ska man inte då sticka A2 först och sedan A1 annars blir det ju inte lika, eller tänker jag fel. Med vänlig hälsning, Annica

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 14:02:

Hei Annica. Ja, det stemmer. Diagrammene viser alle omgangene sett fra rettsiden. Når du strikker fra avigsiden må du derfor strikke diagrammene i motsatt rekkefølge, og lese dem motsatt vei: altså fra venstre mot høyre. Diagrammet skal strikkes over de samme maskene hele veien opp. God fornøyelse

Katherine 27.03.2018 - 19:13:

Hello, I've got a question about the amount of the buttons. The edge (size S) measures approx 56 cm according to the description and the last buttonhole is made at 37 cm, is that correct? If so the rest of the 19 cm should be knit without buttons and holes, right?

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 15:21:

Dear Katherine, there should be a total of 6 buttonholes for size S: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 and 37 cm. - see BUTTONHOLES. The last cm will have no buttonholes but feel free to add one more if you like. Happy knitting!

BELLA 30.05.2017 - 08:42:

Hello The amount of yarns needed is far too small than in other jackets. I am afraid there is a mistake....It cannot be 150 gr.for all the item!! Please answer me so I want to knit it...it is lovely !! Thanks

DROPS Design 30.05.2017 kl. 09:03:

Dear Bella, Kid-Silk is approx. 200 m/25 g, ie you will require 6 balls and approx. 1200 m. Remember to always check and keep your tension. Happy knitting!

ANNAROSA FORLIN 30.03.2017 - 17:06:

Buongiorno! uso sempre i vostri modelli e i vostri filati che trovo molto belli... Ho appena iniziato questo lavoro ma il risultato mi sembra diverso da quello della foto... sembra che quello in foto sia lavorato tutto a due fili mentre io ho capito che dopo le coste del collo bisogna usare un solo filo, è corretto?

DROPS Design 30.03.2017 kl. 17:47:

Buonasera AnnaRosa. Sì è corretto. Avvia le maglie e lavora le coste del collo con 2 fili, poi prosegue con 1 capo solo. Buon lavoro!

Save Annie 24.12.2016 - 13:19:

Bonjour, Je pense qu'il doit y avoir un problème concernant les manches. La photo représente des ajourés sur toute la largeur. Par contre suivant les explications, il n'y a qu'une bande d'ajouré au centre. est bien normal ? Merci et joyeuses fêtes de fin d'année Annie

DROPS Design 02.01.2017 kl. 09:29:

Bonjour Mme Save, les augmentations du raglan sur les manches se tricotent en A.1 et A.2 comme indiqué dans les explications, c'est-à-dire en point ajouré. Bon tricot!

Afra Avanzi 19.06.2016 - 10:27:

Molto carino Afra
