Salve, non comprendo in questo e in altri modelli la quantità di lana necessaria... Cosa significa 50-50-100 g colore n° 01, panna? Che in totale servono 200 g di colore panna? Grazie

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 23:32:

Buonasera Cristina. I numeri indicano la quantità necessaria per le singole taglie. Nel caso del colore panna, serviranno 50 gr per la taglia 3/5 anni; 50 gr per la taglia 6/8 anni e 100 gr per la taglia 9/12 anni. Buon lavoro!

Christine 15.11.2018 - 12:04:

Bonjour , je veux tricoter ce modèle en 3/4ans les quantités de laine sont elles suffisantes pour tricoter les guêtres avec les restes de laine de la robe. Merci bien .

DROPS Design 15.11.2018 kl. 13:47:

Bonjour Christine, nous n'avons pas le poids des jambières terminées pour chaque taille et ne pouvons donc malheureusement pas vous donner d'indications spécifiques à ce sujet autre que les quantités indiquées. Bon tricot!

Jeg strikker benvarmere til en 4 årig. Synes de virker enorm bredde. Diameter 12 cm på det glatstrikkede. Strikkefastheden passer.. Kan det passe??

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 15:59:

Hej Bente, hvis du overholder strikkefastheden får du ca 27 cm i omkreds. Det er tænkt at benvarmerne skal sidde lidt løst (som på billedet). God fornøjelse!

Se lo volessi fare per una persona adulta, come posso fare il calcolo delle maglie da mettere?

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 18:50:

Buonasera Monica. Può provare a guardare il modello Drops 131-15, lavorato con lo stesso filato. Buon lavoro!

Mette 08.03.2018 - 17:26:

Ok. Så like mange masker enten man er tre år eller 12 år? Bare at de er kortere i mindre strl.?

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 13:39:

Hei Mette. Ja, det stemmer. Vrangborden som strikkes nederst og øverst gjør leggvarmerene regulertbart, slik at de sitter slik de skal. God Fornøyelse!

Mette Christine Winther 01.03.2018 - 23:04:

Hei! Finner bare ett maskeantall (legg opp 64 masker), men det er jo tre forskjellige strl.?

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 09:11:

Hei Mette. Ja, det er det samme oppleggsmaskene i alle 3 størrelser, men diagrammet strikkes ulikt. Se diagram for riktig str. God Fornøyelse!

Karine 28.10.2016 - 15:51:

Bonjour, j'aurais souhaité faire les jambières mais je ne comprends pas vraiment pourquoi il n'y a qu'un indication de montage pour les mailles, que ce soit pour 3/5 ans ou le 9/12 ans on monte le même nombre de mailles?

DROPS Design 28.10.2016 kl. 16:49:

Bonjour Karine, tout à fait, on monte le même nombre de mailles dans toutes les tailles, mais la hauteur va changer en fonction de la taille/du diagramme. Bon tricot!

Kirsten Schmidt 14.10.2016 - 07:06:

Jeg har brugt mere hvid end cerise i den største størrelse (strikket 3 par). Måske skal det være 100 gr. hvid og ikke cerise I skriver i opskriften?

DROPS Design 20.10.2016 kl. 16:41:

Hej Kirsten. Tak for info, vi aendrer til 100 gr hvid ogsaa.
