Work 1 row from WS. On next row beg dec. Dec 1 st before each marker - READ DECREASE TIP! Dec like this every row from RS (i.e. every other row) 13-14-15-15 times in total = 122-130-134-140 sts. Now work 2 rows in stocking st while dec 10-13-12-13 sts evenly on first row = 112-117-122-127 sts.

Hur många nystan behövs till capen med bara EN färg? Tack & MVH Pia

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 14:42:

Hei Pia. Vi har dessverre ikke oversikt over garnforbruket med kun 1 farge, men vi runder alltiod opp til nærmeste hele nøste i våre oppskrifter. Så du kan anta du trenger noe mindre garn med kun 1 farge. God fornøyelse

Bibbi Linder 15.01.2019 - 08:56:

Funderar på mönsteromgångarna. Enl diagrammet är det 3 varv utan mönster innan mönstret vänder. MEN efter en mönsteromgång är det bara ett varv utan mönster. Hur ska det vara? Mvh Bibbi

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 14:05:

Hei Bibbi. ja, du har helt rett. Det skal strikkes totalt 3 omganger mellom vendingene i hullmønsteret. Diagrammet vil bli rettet snarest. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse.

Buongiorno,il coprispalle può essere lavorato con ferri diritti? Grazie

DROPS Design 09.12.2018 kl. 20:21:

Buonasera Maria, il coprispalle è lavorato avanti e indietro quindi può utilizzare i ferri dritti. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour, Je souhaite tricoter ce modèle en Drops Alpaca bleu jeans taille S/M. Est ce que Je dois commander 500g de laine ? Cela me parait beaucoup puisque Je n'utilise qu'une seule couleur. Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 10:15:

Bonjour Christine, il est probable que vous en ayez besoin de moins si vous ne faites pas les rayures, toutefois comme ce modèle est tricoté avec 4 couleurs, nous ne pouvons vous donner la quantité exacte avec 1 seule couleur. Votre magasin DROPS saura fort probablement vous aider et vous renseigner. Bon tricot!
