Der står, at jeg ved slutningen af bærestykke skal slå 8 masker (str 98-104) op over tråden. Jeg ved ikke hvad det betyder. Jeg troede de skulle på tråden, men når jeg skal strikke ærme, kan jeg se, at jeg skal slå 8 nye masker op.

Hi i am doing size 7/8 and no stripes. How many rows is it from the beginning of the yoke to the end of the raglan increase? Thanks

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 13:57:

Dear Valerie, in size 7/8 stripes are: *2 rounds off white, 5 rounds blue*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times = 7 rounds x 7 = 49 rounds in total. Happy knitting!

Jess 09.05.2018 - 11:29:

I've just finished the neck, but I'm afraid I don't understand the part "work 1 round until marker mid back again." Am I meant to work until I get to the stitch marker? Or am I meant to work 48 stitches past the marker? Thanks :-)

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 13:05:

Dear Jess, next to last row of the elevation will be worked from WS over 48 sts then turn and work to marker on mid back (= where you start the short rows working 8 sts past marker). Happy knitting!

Mängden garn som behövs kan inte stämma. Andra mönster i garngrupp B (tex Clever Clark) har en garnåtgång på totalt 250 g i strl 98/104. Enligt detta mönster behövs 400 g i 98/104, vilket dessutom är samma mängd som till strl 7/8 år. Uppdatera med rätt mängd garn!

Je voudrais savoir pourquoi il faut augmenter des mailles a la fin .Quand on change d'aiguilles habituellement on débute aig n°3,5 puis aig n°4 et la on augmente je comprend pas . Si on fait comme il et expliquer le pull vas en s'elargisant ?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 10:44:

Bonjour Mme Durfour, on augmente au 1er rang des côtes pour que les côtes ne resserrent pas trop l'ouvrage en bas. Bon tricot!

Las tallas que vienen en el patron No. me-016-bn no entiendo la talla en cm a que se refiere , no siento logico que un niño de 3/4 años tenga talla de 98-104 cm de contorno pecho, a que se refiere esa medida ?? gracias por su respuesta

DROPS Design 10.11.2016 kl. 08:49:

Hola Gracia. Las tallas de niños en las medidas internacionales vienen indicadas por la altura del niño. La altura de niño de 3 años es de aprox 98 cm, de 4 años - aprox 104 cm, de 5 años - 110 cm.

Vielen Dank für diese Anleitung! Es ist schwierig, für größere Kindergrößen Anleitungen zu finden. In Gr. 152 sitzt der Pullover perfekt. Die Anleitung war sehr gut verständlich.
