Snap niets van het minderen van de hals. Wanneer gebruik ik; minder als volgt VOOR 7 voorbiessteken 2 recht samen? Ik brei de XXL ik minder dus elke 4e naald 5x en daarna 13x een steek om de naald dus 18 steken. Ik minder dus met na de voorbies een steek over te halen. Dus wanneer minder ik VOOR de voorbies 2 steken samen breien?

DROPS Design 29.03.2018 kl. 11:32:

Dag Marion, Als je aan de goede kant breit en je bent vlak voor de voorbiessteken als je moet minderen, dan brei je 2 steken samen. Dat is dus op het linker voorpand (gezien als het kledingstuk gedragen wordt.)

Caren Joseph 21.03.2018 - 19:34:

Ich bin total begeistert von Ihrer Strickjacke und würde sie gerne nachstricken! Allerdings sollte meine "Traumjacke" auch unbedingt eine Kapuze haben, nur leider habe diesbezüglich noch gar keine Strick-Erfahrung. Wäre es grundsätzlich möglich, an diese Jacke eine Kapuze anzustricken oder würde das eher merkwürdig aussehen? Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen und verbleibe mit freundlichen Grüßen

Federica 08.03.2018 - 21:49:

Ciao, quanti grammi mi servono per un cardigan taglia S o M più corto di 10 cm? Grazie

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 09:05:

Buongiorno Federica. Per richieste relative ai quantitativi necessari in seguito a modifiche al modello, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Wia 28.11.2017 - 15:36:

Zijn de stekenvoor de mouwen nu al aangepast?

DROPS Design 29.11.2017 kl. 08:01:

Hallo Wia, Het stekenaantal blijkt toch te kloppen. Vanwege wijdere schouders en laag ingezette mouwen, zijn de armsagten kleiner dan in andere patronen. Natuurlijk ben je vrij om dit naar eigen inzicht aan te passen. Hallo Wia, Nee, de steken voor de mouwen zijn nog niet aangepast. Het is doorgegeven aan designafdeling en als er aanpassingen op een patroon zijn, kun je die vinden bij het tabblad correcties, rechts naast de afbeelding van het patroon.

Amanda 26.11.2017 - 12:03:

Hej! Jag har fått förlänga ärmen och axelpartiet för att koftan ska passa och undrar hur många maskor det är tänkt att man ska ha kvar när ärmen maskas av.

DROPS Design 29.11.2017 kl. 14:28:

Hei Amanda. Det kommer an på hvilken størrelse du strikker. I oppskriften står det: Gjenta økningen på hver 5½.-4.-4.-3.-2½.-2.cm totalt 6-8-8-10-11-12 ganger = 46-50-54-58-64-66 masker. Når arbeidet måler 37-37-36-35-34-32 cm, felles det av til ermtopp på begynnelsen av hver pinne, se oppskriften for nærmere beskrivelse. God Fornøyelse!

Danielle 24.11.2017 - 14:09:

Ik ben bij de mouwen aangekomen. In het patroon staat "kant dan 3 steken af aan elke kant tot het werk ongeveer 42 cm meet in alle maten" Betekent dit doorgaan met 3 steken minderen tot gewenste lengte of tot steken op? Of betekent het beide kanten 3 steken minderen en dan doorbreien tot gewenste lengte?

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 09:52:

Hallo Danielle, Je kant 3 steken af, dan een aantal keren 2 steken (afhankelijk van je maat) en daarna inderdaad steeds 3 steken aan beide kanten tot de gewenste lengte.

Marlies Van Dijk 17.11.2017 - 23:07:

Worden de mouwen bovenaan wel wijd genoeg? Zijn namelijk smaller dan in andere patronen, als je de tekening bekijkt.

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 09:50:

Hallo Marlies, Inderdaad, je zou wel eens gelijk kunnen hebben. Ik heb het even doorgegeven aan design afdeling om na te kijken en eventueel aan te passen.

Trine Smestad 12.09.2017 - 22:05:

Når jeg har fellet 22 masker til hals/nakke (største størrelsen) Da sitter jeg med 38 masker på hver side. Da skal jeg felle av til skrå skulder, 6 masker på hver skulder. Da har jeg 32 masker igjen. I oppskriften står er 37 masker. Så hva gjør jeg feil

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 09:40:

Hei Trine. Du har 38 masker på hver side, nå strikkes hver skulder for seg selv. Du skal felle på hver 2. pinne slik: fell 7 masker 4 ganger (= 28 masker felt), så skal du felle 9 masker 1 gang = 28+9 = 37 felte masker. Du har nå 1 maske igjen på pinnen, dra tråden igjennom og du er ferdig med den ene siden. Gjør samme fellingen på andre side. God Fornøyelse!

Magda 08.09.2017 - 19:08:

Dzień dobry. Nie rozumiem zapisu dotyczącego zamykania dekoltu. "Powtórzyć zamykanie oczek w sumie 3-4-4-5-5-5 razy co 4 rzędy i w sumie 13-12-13-12-13-14 razy co 2 rzędy". Czy to oznacza, że mam zamykać po jednym oczku co 4 rzędy i powtórzyć to 4 razy, a zamykanie co drugi rząd powtórzyć 12 razy? Czy może mam zamknąć 4 oczka co 4 rzędy i 12 oczek co dwa rzędy? Ile razy mam powtórzyć taką operację?

DROPS Design 11.09.2017 kl. 17:30:

Witaj Magdo, w rozmiarze M musisz zamykać po 1 oczku co 4 rzędy i powtórzyć to 4 razy, a następnie zamykać 1 oczko co 2 rzędy i powtórzyć to 12 razy. Miłej pracy!
