Danke fürs helfen. Projekt ist gestartet

Sieglinde 26.04.2019 - 21:09:

Gleichzeitig in der mitte des Rapports zunehmen. Steht bei der Passe in der Anleitung. Wie mach ich das?? Hab noch nie von oben nach unten etwas gestrickt. Bitte um Hilfe! Danke

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 08:11:

Liebe Sieglinde, bei der 1. Reihe nach A.2 machen Sie 1 Umschlag in der mitte jede A.2 (= 11-12-13 A.2 in der Reihe = 11-12-13 Umschläge/Zunahmen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

The correction for English UK (updated 7/10/16) is not right. For size 7/8 it says to cast on 84 sts, while 94 is the correct number, as shown in English US and German. I have not checked other languages. It seems that the 5 garter sts for band must start right away.

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 16:08:

Dear Barbara, you are right, text under correction is wrong (will be edited), but pattern is right and was already edited into the right number of sts. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Hei ,jeg er ferdig med A1, men hvordan skal jeg økes for å bli fra 94 til 214 det har ikke forklaring til ,og hva dere mente A2(=7m)gjente .takk på forhånd

DROPS Design 02.03.2019 kl. 09:55:

Hei Marie, Når du er ferdig med A.1, begynner du med A.2 (med 5 masker rille på begge sider). A.2 er gjentatt 12 ganger i bredden og økningene på bærestykket er inkludert i A.2. Hver A.2 øker 10 masker i løpet av høyden og siden du har 12 gjentagelser i bredden, blir det en økning på 120 masker totalt. Da har du 214 masker på pinnen. God fornøyelse!

Hei ,jeg er ferdig med A1, men hvordan skal jeg økes for å bli fra 94 til 214 det har ikke forklaring til ,og hva dere mente A2(=7m)gjente .takk på forhånd

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 13:03:

Hei Marie. A.2 går over 7 masker på den første raden i diagrammet. Det er det (=7 masker) betyr. Du skal ha 214 masker på pinnen når A.2 er ferdig (ikke A.1). Om du ser på diagram A.2 ser du at det økes 2 masker på omgang 7, 9, 11, 13 og 15 (med kast på midten). Det økes derfor totalt 10 masker i hver rapport av A.2, og A.2 skal gjentas 12 ganger på omgangen. Når du er ferdig med A.2 har du derfor økt 12 x 10 masker = 120 masker økt. 94 + 120 = 214 masker på pinnen. God fornøyelse

Anette Sväd 24.02.2019 - 10:47:

Efter A2 så får jag det till 187 maskor och det blir bara 10 löv. Jag gör storlek 5-6 år. ??????

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 08:31:

Hej. Du ska sticka A.2 11 gånger på ett varv . När A.2 har stickats 1 gång på höjden har det totalt ökats 110 m. (Du ökar på varv 8,10,12,14,16, dvs 22 m (=2x11) ökade per varv på dessa varv.) Lycka till!

Susana Jourdan 11.02.2019 - 08:45:

Bonjour, J'ai perdu beaucoup de temps avant de comprendre que la grille est à l'envers! Il faut commencer par la partie du bas. C'est normal que la grille soit à l'envers? Merci pour ce site magnifique qui m'a donné envie de reprendre le tricot après 15 ans! Susana

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 11:42:

Bonjour Mme Jourdan, tout à fait, on tricote le gilet de haut en bas, et on lit toujours les diagrammes de bas en haut = on commence avec moins de mailles (côté col) et on augmente pour l'empiècement (= haut du diagramme). Bon tricot!

Denise Eichstädt 04.02.2019 - 14:47:

Ups, zu schnell abgeschickt, auch waren die angegebenen Abnahmen an den Ärmeln viel zu eng, ich habe schon 2 weniger gemacht und es passt kein dünnes Sweatshirt mehr drunter ( und Mei. Kind ist sehr schlank)

Denise Eichstädt 04.02.2019 - 14:43:

Habe mich genau an die Wolle, Nadeln und Maße gehalten, und trotzdem reichten 250g Wolle nicht, brauchte 300g. Habe die Größe 7/8 gestrickt.
