Ik kom niet verder dan de 1e 12nld van mijn 1e werk.Er staat dat je een patroon moet breien.Welke is dit en dat zijn maar in de 50 st.en ik heb er 76 opstaan.Wat moet ik met de rest doen.Zelfs mijn zus en moeder komen hier niet aan uit

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 16:33:

Dag Therese

De telpatronen (A.1, A.2 etc) kun je onderaan de beschrijving van het patroon vinden. Kies het juiste telpatroon voor jouw maat. In de beschrijving staat uitgelegd welke patronen je moet breien en in welke volgorde en evt nog kantsteken e.d. je moet breien. Op die manier kom je wel op het aantal opgezette steken uit. In de FAQ kun je hierover ook informatie vinden.

Pourquoi faire simple si on peut compliquer ?

H. Pols 29.01.2018 - 17:17:

Bij het linker voorpand na de boordnaalden staat o.a.dat A6a gebreid moet worden, maar volgens mij moet dat A6b zijn.

Karin Elend 16.11.2017 - 10:30:

Ich möchte mir die Jacke gern in Größe 54/56 stricken. Wie errechne ich mir die richtige Größe, Maschenzahl und Maße?

DROPS Design 16.11.2017 kl. 11:46:

Liebe Frau Elend, am Enden der Seite finden Sie eine Maßskizze mit aller Maßen für jede Größe. Vergleichen Sie sie mit der einer ähnlichen Jacke die Sie gerne haben um die richtige Größe zu finden. Mehr lesen Sie hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Violeta 11.07.2017 - 11:53:

Preciosa labor, pero tengo una duda. En la explicación del delantero derecho dice que hay que continuar la labor hasta que mida 70 cm, y ajustar a 7 repeticiones de a2.b (talla L), pero a mí me salen 8 repeticiones para que mida 70 cm. No sé si estoy haciendo algo mal o no he entendido las explicaciones. Me da miedo de que quede demasiado largo. Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 14.07.2017 kl. 13:59:

Hola Violeta. El número de repeticiones son aproximadas (depende de la tensión del tejido). Tienes que guiarte por las medidas en cm.

Tine 04.02.2017 - 16:51:

Hei! Jeg fikk strikket én omgang før jeg ikke skjønte resten. Hva mener dere med "Gjenta de 2 første p i diag til det er strikket ...p, strikk de 2 resterende p i diagrammet." Skal man strikke A.1a og A.2a i x antall omganger, så A.3a og A.4a? Det virket ikke logisk for meg :)

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:37:

Hei Tine. Du gentager p 1 og 2 af alle 4 diagrammer til du har strikket i alt 12 eller 8 p (det er kun ret og vrang). Derefter strikker du de 2 sidste p i diagrammet - hvor der tages ind (i A.4 tages der ikke ind). Saa du har strikket i alt 14 eller 10 p naar du er faerdig med ribben.

Donna Hein 30.11.2016 - 11:58:

What is the P over diagram?

DROPS Design 30.11.2016 kl. 12:05:

Dear Mrs Hein, when working from RS, P all sts with a - (= reversed stocking st), when working from WS, P all sts with a white square (= stocking st seen from RS). Happy knitting!

Donna 23.11.2016 - 15:30:

Back Piece: where do you start to measure for 8 1/2". Is it over the middle 30 sts. Or from the front shoulder marker.

DROPS Design 23.11.2016 kl. 15:43:

Dear Donna, measure from shoulder marker so that new sts for armholes will be cast on on same height on back and on front piece (fold piece double at markers if necessary). Happy knitting!

Trudy Vink 11.11.2016 - 22:38:

Mogelijk ligt het aan mij maar ik vindt de overgang van de schouderpartij links en rechter voorpand naar de rug onduidelijk , de hals snap ik wel, maar niet de doorloop van het patroon dat over de schouder heen loopt, is daar eventueel een uitleg over, alvast bedankt.

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 15:22:

Hoi Trudy. Je hebt van beneden naar boven gebreid en hebt nu een rechter en een linker voorpand. Je breit het achterpand van boven naar beneden van de schouders van de voorpanden. Je keert het werk van het linker voorpand en breit de goede kant zoals beschreven, dan zet je 20 nieuwe st op voor de hals (middenachter), en breit de x aantal st van de rechterschouder. Je breit nu door volgens het patroon zoals eerst (van de schouder) met 20 st in tricotst langs de hals en meerdert 4 st gelijkmatig. Brei door zoals beschreven.

Ansje 18.10.2016 - 10:05:

In de voorbies moeten gaatjes worden gebreid. In het stekenoverzicht is daar ook een teken voor maar in het patroon vind ik die niet terug . Waar in het patroon moet ik dan die gaatjes breien?

DROPS Design 18.10.2016 kl. 12:17:

Hoi Ansje. Die staan in telpatroon A.1a
