What does " bow" mean in pattern , never heard of this thank you

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 08:07:

Dear Mrs Wright, a ch-bow is here a ch-space. This video shows how to crochet the square. Happy crocheting!

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:51:

Når der står: tag en maske løs af, hvad menes der så? En maske ret løs af eller en maske vrang løs af?

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 16:37:

Hej Gunvor. En maske löst af uden anden forklaring vil jeg tage som en maske ret lös af.

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:47:

Endnu et spørgsmål. Skal man tage masker op fra retsiden på den hæklede remse? Hvis man gør det bliver første pind derefter fra vrangsiden og man kan ikke starte mønster hvis hvis 1.p skal strikkes fra retsiden. Håber på snarlig svar så jeg kan komme igang med den flotte top :-)

DROPS Design 05.07.2016 kl. 14:53:

Hej Gunvor. Det staar der ikke noget om. Jeg ville göre det som er paenest og saa sörge for at 1. pind du strikker kommer paa retsiden.

Gunvor Madsen 03.07.2016 - 11:44:

Flot top. Jeg forstår 1.p i mønsteret men ved pind nr. 2 skriver I: 2. p: Strik alle m glatstrik set fra retsiden" det er svært at vide hvad der er retsiden når ikke der står hvor man starter. Hvis pind nr. 2 er fra vrangiden, hvorfor så ikke bare skrive 2.p strik alle masker vrang? Håber på hurtigt svar så jeg kan komme igang med toppen:-)

DROPS Design 05.07.2016 kl. 14:36:

Hej Gunvor. Ja, det er saa den maade det er skrevet paa dengang. Men du skal strikke vr paa vrangen og r paa retten saa 2 p af mönstret vil blive glatstrik set fra retten....

Bonjour, j'allais commencer ce modèle et je viens de prendre connaissance de la question de Mamilo... j'ai donc fait un essai avant, et il me semble que la maille glissée est tricotée endroit TORSE, je crois que c'est le détail qui manque. Tricoté de cette façon, on retrouve le point des photos du tuto. Merci pour tous vos magnifiques modèles !

MAMILO 30.04.2016 - 18:43:

Bonjour, Malgré plusieurs essais le point tel qu'il est expliqué aboutit à un ouvrage qui part en biais vers la gauche. Logique puisqu'on passe la m par-dessus, même si elle est compensée car tricotée ensuite. Y a-t-il une explication manquante pour que le tricot soit bien droit comme sur la photo? D'avance merci pour votre réponse. Cordialement, Mamilo

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Mamilo, veillez bien à ce que les 2 m tricotées dans le point fantaisie soit alignées les unes au-dessus des autres, on répète ces 2 m sur l'endroit, et elles forment ainsi des lignes droites - sur l'envers, tricotez-les à l'envers, au rang suivant, veillez bien à tricoter ces mêmes 2 m = la m glissée au rang suiv sur l'end est la m tricotée à l'end au rang précédent sur l'endroit. Voir aussi un tuto en photos ici. Bon tricot!

Michèle 25.11.2015 - 09:35:

Ce modèle est très beau, malheureusement je vais tout défaire car le point le déforme en biais malgré mise en forme par trempage et repassage, rien n'y fait, il se déforme en quelques minutes. Il faut proposer un autre point. Je suis une tricoteuse experte et mon avis est fondé.

Leontine 08.02.2015 - 10:35:

Er staat geen telpatroon van de bloem bij, is het mogelijk die alsnog te plaatsen?

DROPS Design 09.02.2015 kl. 14:13:

Hoi Leontine. Wij hebben hiervoor helaas geen telpatroon alleen de geschreven beschrijving in het patroon.

SMITHA 28.08.2014 - 23:32:

CAN SLEEVES BE ADDED TO THIS PATTERN,IF SO COULD U GIVE ME A PATTERN

DROPS Design 29.08.2014 kl. 09:30:

Dear Smitha, if you are looking for a jacket/bolero with sleeves, there might be easier to the matching pattern with the help of our search engine. Happy crocheting!

Vasiliki Bourantoni 25.07.2013 - 10:22:

I have a problem with the pattern... following this , after psso i have to leave the stitch on the left needle and to knit it... this way decreases the number of stitches.. is their any advise ? is their any video for this pattern?

DROPS Design 25.07.2013 kl. 18:20:

Dear Mrs Bourantoni, On Row 1 of the pattern, you slip 1 st, K the next st and pass the slipped st over the worked st, leave this st on left needle and K1 in this st, so that there is no decrease, both sts will be worked. Happy knitting!
