Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas comment il faut diminuer après avoir tricoté les 18 cm de hauteur. Je ne comprends pas ce que veut dire dans chaque section ? faut-il diminuer dans les mailles endroit et dans les mailles envers ? merci pour votre réponse

Bonjour Anne, il faut diminuer 1 m env dans chaque section 2 m env (dans les mailles envers). Bon tricot!

I skriver ved huen at man skal fortsætte i glatstrik til færdigt mål. Hvad er det færdige mål og pleace ikke svar som til Frederikke Storm Hansen. For det giver sig selv at huen er færdig når manv er nået det færdige mål, men er det 30 cm. 40 cm. 50 cm. eller noget helt andet?

Hej Hanne, når du når 23-25 cm sætter du mærketrådene, nu har du 10 omgange tilbage (1.er den hvor maskerne strikkes ret sammen). 10 omgange = ca 5 cm. Det vil sige 28-30 cm i højden. God fornøjelse!

Frederikke Storm Hansen 03.12.2017 - 16:08:

Hi, The pattern mentions continuing in stockinette stitch until finished measurements. What finished measurements are these?

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 09:41:

Dear Mrs Storm Hansen, you continue in stockinette stitch until the hat has been finished. Happy knitting!

Salve, ho appena finito il cappellino drops-174-13 " Albert Point" con il filato alternativo all'Alaska " Nepal" , eseguito nella misura S/M è grande e sproporzionato, tempo che ci sia un errore nel numero delle maglie da montare all'inizio. Ho controllato anche sulle istruzioni in inglese ma le maglie sono comunque 88 per la misura S/M ma mi sembra strano, non è il primo cappellino che lavoro e gli altri sono perfetti. Grazie per la disponibilità

Buonasera Silvia, il suo campione corrisponde a quello indicato? Con un campione di 17 maglie in 10 cm le 88 maglie montate danno una circonferenza di 52 maglie, che per il bordo a coste va benissimo. Provi a ricontrollare la sua tensione. Buon lavoro!
