AT THE SAME TIME cast on 2 new sts at the end of every row 9-9-9-10 times in total in each side = 50-52-54-60 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 6-6-6-7 cm.

Hallo, warum passen das Titelbild und die technische Zeichnung nicht zusammen ? Ersteres zeigt deutlich Beine , letztere ist ein Body ohne Beine...? Danke für die Antworten Uschi

DROPS Design 22.07.2019 kl. 23:19:

Liebe Uschi, die Zeichnung soll schematisch verdeutlichen, wie hoch die Beinöffnung ist, es ergibt sich aber dadurch kein hoch ausgeschnittener Body. Die Beine, die Sie auf dem Foto sehen, ergeben sich aus der Art, wie zugenommen wird. Zuletzt wird ja noch das Rippenmuster um die Beinöffnungen gestrickt, was in der Zeichnung nicht enthalten ist. Gutes Gelingen und viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Lisa 28.04.2018 - 08:55:

Fikk også som mange andre annerledes bein enn ønsket. Synes allikevel det ser bra ut! Laget ekstra lang vrangbord:) det er dessverre en veldig irriterende feil i oppskriften som jeg er veldig lei meg for at jeg ikke oppdaget før etterpå. Stusset på at det var litt liten rillekant øverst på sidene av forstykket men fulgte oppskriften. Det er jo nødt til å skulle være 8 kantmasker .. så forstykket krøller seg og ser ikke riktig ut. Men alt i alt fin bukse!:)

Christiane 02.04.2018 - 22:09:

Hallo meine Lieben, Ich versteh leider nicht wie die Beine an den "Trägerbody" kommen, die Hosenbeine bestehen ja nicht nur aus dem Rippenmusterrand, oder? Danke für die schöne Anleitung

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 09:52:

Liebe Christiane, am Anfang stricken Sie Rücken und Vorderteil (siehe Skizze), dann wird es Bündchen an der beiden Beinöffnungen gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Caty 26.02.2018 - 09:45:

Se corresponde la foto del peto con el patrón en si ? es que estoy empezando a tejerlo y me da la sensación que las piernas del peto no son para nada tan largas como en la foto. Gracias

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 17:41:

Hola Caty. La foto corresponde al patrón. La largura de las piernas de peto puede ser engañoso debido a cómo está puesto el peto, pero en realidad son bastante cortas.

Mariana 22.02.2018 - 21:23:

Wie kann ich dieses Strickmuster vergrößern? Ich hätte es gern für 98/104? Liebe Grüße Mariana

DROPS Design 23.02.2018 kl. 09:03:

Liebe Mariana, leider können wir nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder individuelle Anfrage anpassen. Gerne bekommen Sie Hilfe von Ihrem DROPS Laden oder Strickforum. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Therese 22.02.2017 - 08:16:

Bildet i oppskriften samsvarer ikke med selve oppskriften. På bildet er det shorts-ben, mens i oppskrifta blir det mer som en romper. Dette er kjedelig for de som ønsker å strikke "snekkerbuksen" som er på bildet.

Silje Finsrud 29.01.2017 - 10:51:

Hei. Sitter å strikker denne nydelige lekedressen nå. Men lurer på en ting, på bilde Er det shortsben på dressen, men i oppskriften er det rett fra truse til vrangbord. Har jeg misforstått noe?

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 16:04:

Hej Silje. Du gaar direkte til vrangbord efter du har delt op.

ALLAIN Cindy 02.09.2016 - 14:55:

Hoooo troop mignon !!! j'adore ! une fois mon pull fini je me lance dans la réalisation de cette combinaison !
