GARTER STITCH (back and forth):

PATTERN:

Bonjour, Je vous remercie pour vos explications qui me sont d'un très grand secours...

Rose 05.03.2019 - 19:24:

J'ai un petit soucis : J'ai tricoté une premiere fois A1 A2 A3 A4 et j'ai donc 47 mailles. Je n'ai pas compris comment continuer : est ce que je continue avec une série de A1, puis A2 A3 A4 (17 fois) ? Dans ce cas, lorsque je veux tricoter un premier rang A1, j'intercale une maille entre chaque motif ? (car deux jetés sont côte à côte)... Merci d'avance pour votre aide...

DROPS Design 06.03.2019 kl. 09:16:

Bonjour Rose, une fois que vous avez tricoté 1 x A.2, A.3, A.4 et que vous avez 47 m, vous allez répéter ces diagrammes en hauteur ainsi, la 2ème fois: 2 m point mousse, A.2, 2 x A.3, A.4, 1 m centrale, A.2, 2xA.3, A.4, 2 m point mousse. Tricotez ainsi encore 1 fois les diagrammes en hauteur, la fois suivante, vous tricoterez: A.2, 3xA.3, A.4 et ainsi de suite jusqu'à ce que vous ayez répété 17 fois ces diagrammes au total en hauteur. Bon tricot!

Moet ik na de herhaling van patroon 2 3 4 alleen de 3 extra breien?

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 12:11:

Dag Ria,

Als je de telpatronen A.2, A.3 en A.4 een keer in de hoogte hebt gebreid, herhaal je dit patroon steeds in de hoogte en elke keer als je dit patroon herhaalt hebt in de hoogte, is er ruimte voor nog 1 herhaling van A.3 tussen A.2 en A.4

Barbara 30.10.2018 - 23:45:

Ich habe schon das Model 176-21 gestrickt. Sehr schön!!! Dieses Model ist mir etwas zu groß. Die Musterfolge A2, A3, A4 ist ja diejenige, die Größe macht. Ich würde sie nicht 17 Mal wiederholen, sondern vielleicht nur 12 Mal. Frage: Wieviel cm insgesamt messen die Musterfolgen ungefähr, die sich an A2, A3, A4 anschließen?? Danke!!

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 08:37:

Liebe Barbara, wir haben diese Masse leider nicht, aber diese Höhe können Sie messen, wenn Sie z.B. diese 12 Rapport in der Höhe gestrickt haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anne 23.09.2018 - 18:54:

Bonjour ! Je n’arrive pas à faire le rang 7 de A.1. Je n’ar Pas juste sur la maille du milieu. J’ai beau faire et refaire je n’y arrive pas. Y a-t-il une erreur ?

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 09:42:

Bonjour Anne, vérifiez que vous avez bien 11 mailles dans chaque A.1 de chaque côté à la fin du rang 6 (= soit 2 m point mousse, 11 m A.1, 1 m jersey, 11 m A.1 et 2 m point mousse). Au rang 7 tricotez: 2 m point mousse, A.1 = 1 jeté, 2 m end, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 3 m end, 1 jeté, glissez 1 m à l'end, 1 m end, passez la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée, 2 m end, 1 jeté= 13 m), 1 m end (m centrale), répétez A.1 et terminez par 2 m end = 2 + 13 + 1 + 13 + 2 = 31 m. Bon tricot!

KERDONCUFF Armelle 12.08.2018 - 23:37:

Bonjour, y a t'il des explications en français, SVP?

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 10:22:

Bonjour Mme Kerdoncuff, tout à fait, cliquez sur le menu déroulant sous la photo pour sélectionner "français". Bon tricot!

Rosie 13.07.2018 - 17:26:

I have difficulty in understanding row 5, could you explain how I work over 5 stitches, Once I can see how this row is done hopefully I will be able to knit the Aretusa shawl.Thankyou

DROPS Design 14.07.2018 kl. 11:36:

Hi Rosie, Row 5 is worked as described in the text with A.2 = 1 yo, slip 1, k 1, pass slipped stitch over, 1 yo; A.2 = 1 yo, K 2 tog, 1 yo; A.3 = 1 yo, slip 1, k1, pass slipped st over, k3, k2 tog, 1 yo, k1. Read diagrams from right to left on right side and from left to right on wrong side. Happy Knitting!

Antonella Rita Sironi 22.06.2018 - 12:07:

Quando ho lavorato, il diagramma A1, 1 volta in verticale mi ritrovo con 27 maglie e non 31 come descritto ... vorrei capire come ottenere 31 maglie dato che il diagramma A1 l'ho completato correttamente ... grazie

DROPS Design 22.06.2018 kl. 12:27:

Buongiorno Antonella. Quando inizia a lavorare il diagramma A1 ha 15 m che lavora così: 2 m legaccio, 5 m seguendo A1, 1 maglia rasata (maglia centrale) , 5 m seguendo A1, 2 m legaccio. Ad ogni ferro dispari del diagramma A1 vengono aumentate 2 m in ogni ripetizione del diagramma. Ci sono due ripetizioni del diagramma A1 , quindi in tutto aumenta 4 m ad ogni ferro dispari. Alla fine del diagramma A1, il conteggio delle maglie è il seguente: 2 m legaccio, A1 su 13 maglie, 1 maglia rasata (m centrale), A1 su 13 maglie, 2 m legaccio. In tutto 31 maglie. Buon lavoro!

V popisu je uvedeno že "Sekvenci vzorů stále opakujeme (na výšku), pokaždé, když celou sekvenci dokončíme (na výšku), máme dostatek nových ok na 1 novou sekvenci nad vzorem A.3 mezi vzory A.2 a A.4.". Jenže nad A.3 je 8 ok, tak čím mám pokračovat, Děkuji Luďa.

DROPS Design 20.04.2018 kl. 21:34:

Dobrý den, Luďo, pokračujete stále ve stejném rozvržení vzorů, jen po dokončení celé sekvence zvorů (na výšku) pletete místo 1 sekvence vzoru A.3 sekvence 2 (= 2x 8 ok); později 3 sekvence atp. Hodně zdaru! Hana
