Insert 2 markers in the piece; 46-48-50-52-54-56 sts in from each side (front piece = 82-86-90-94-98-102 sts). When piece measures 13 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 4-5-6-6½-7-7½ cm 6 more times = 146-154-162-170-178-186 sts.

Er staat bij de benodigde artikelen, lint van 10 cm breed. Denk dat dit mm moet zijn.

Pia 09.07.2018 - 18:52:

Er det noe som ikke stemmer her? «Når arb måler 13 cm felles det 1 m i hver side av merketrådene (= 4 m felt) – LES FELLETIPS. Gjenta fellingene på hver 4.-5.-6.-6½.-7.-7½.cm 6 ganger til» Etter fellingene vil arbeidet da måle 37-43-49-52-55-58cm etter mine beregninger, men hullraden skal strikkes etter 37-41-45-49-53-57cm? På bildet ser det ut som det felles mye oftere, og at man strikker et stykke uten felling før hullraden strikkes.

Hej Pia, det kan være at det er en anden størrelse på billedet, men opskriften er skrevet så fellingerne skal være jævnt fordelt. Hvis du følger opskriften så får du målene som står i måleskitsen. God fornøjelse!

Det mangler bilde av knappestolpen bak.

Jacqui 04.07.2018 - 08:06:

I am having difficulty understanding, when the pattern reads: Work next row as follows from WS (P YOs to make holes): Work 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts as before (= right back piece), cast off 6 sts for armhole, work 62-66-70-74-78-82 sts as before (= front piece), cast off 6 sts for armhole and work the last 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (= left back piece) Do I perl all stiches and then knit 36? Or do I cast off on the WS

DROPS Design 04.07.2018 kl. 10:01:

Dear Jacqui, that's right you are working this row from WS so that you will purl all sts - but still work the 5 sts in each side as before, ie in garter st. Happy knitting!

Kathryn Briggs 08.06.2018 - 01:47:

Size 9/10 The first button hole is 20 cm down the back?

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 08:29:

Dear Mrs Briggs, first buttonhole will be knitted when piece measures 20 cm from bottom edge. Happy knitting!

Ida 30.06.2017 - 14:29:

Hei, er det mulig å bruke et annet garn. eks. merinoull?

Joan 24.06.2017 - 14:56:

Findes opskriften også på dansk.... synes kun det er i starten med garnangivelse og størrelser mv. det er på dansk. Jeg er ikke nogen strikkeørn, og har tidligere ikke haft super godt held med oversættelser.

DROPS Design 26.06.2017 kl. 09:57:

Hei Joan. Her har det blitt noe feil, vi skal få denne oversatt til dansk så fort som mulig. Takk for at du gjorde oss oppmerksom på dette. God fornøyelse på å strikke denne flotte sommerkjolen.
