Tak for svar på tidligere. Matematikken passer fint hvis jeg kun skal strikke A3, men det kommer ikke til at passe med både A1og A2. Jeg tilføjer 37 masker mellem A1 og A2. Hvis de skal kunne strikkes sammen med mønsteret i A1 og A2 burde dette masketal fratrukket 3 være deleligt med 6. Uanset hvad der så foregår at retstrik i kanten. Jeg kan i hvert fald ikke få det til at passe på nogen måde. Til gengæld fungerer det smukt hvis jeg tilføjer 39 masker i midten i stedet for 37!

Op een hoogte van 14 cm moet je aan de goede kant meerderen en de gebreide steken aan de zijkant in patroon A3 inbreien. Hoe doe je dit zonder dat het patroon verspringt?

DROPS Design 15.08.2018 kl. 10:15:

Dag Henny, Je breit de gemeerderde steken in A.3, zodra er genoeg steken zijn om ze in patroon te breien. Als er nog niet genoeg steken zijn, brei je ze in tricotsteek.

Jeg strikker denne top i str XL og kan ikke få mønsteret til at passe. Når jeg samler højre og venstre skulder med opslag har jeg 73 masker. Jeg strikker 3 masker retstrik og 2 masker glatstrik og fortsætter med diagram A3, så det stemmer med mønsteret på diagram A2 og videre over de opslagene masker frem til den anden skulder. Og her passer mønsteret så ikke længere over det der på skulderen er strikket efter A1, men er forskudt med 2 masker. Er der mon en fejl i opskriften?

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 15:51:

Hej Merete, Du har 73 masker, de yderste 5 masker i hver side strikkes i retstrik/glatstrik, det vil sige at du har 63 masker tilbage til A.3. Hvis du strikker A.3A over 6 masker 10 gange, så har du 3 masker tilbage hvor du strikker A.3B (så mønsteret bliver ens i hver side). God fornøjelse!
