Hallo, auf dem 2. Bild sind Lappen (ganz rechts hängend) ( am 5. Haken ) wo finde ich die Anleitung ?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 14:03:

Liebe Suse, hier finden Sie die Anleitung dieser Lappen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Conny 25.03.2019 - 09:30:

Guten Morgen, nach welcher Anleitung sind die Waschlappen ganz rechts gestrickt? Liebe Grüße Conny

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 12:16:

Liebe Conny, in diesen Modellen werden keine Lappen ganz rechts (=krausrechts) gestrickt, hier finden Sie einige Lappen, die ganz kraus rechts gestrickt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dans le point fantaisie, vous dites : "glisser 1 maille bleu jeans à l'endroit, en plaçant le fil sur l'envers". Cela veut-il dire qu'il faut placer le fil blanc devant la maille glissée ?

DROPS Design 13.11.2018 kl. 08:39:

Bonjour Marie-Noël, on garde le fil blanc sur l'envers, il ne doit pas passer devant la maille glissée sur l'endroit pour que la maille glissée soit toujours bien visible sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Marie-Noëlle 12.11.2018 - 19:20:

Bonjour, Dans la correction, vous indiquez que A3 se tricote sur 4 mailles, mais le diagramme est sur 5 mailles. Quelle maille ne doit plus être tricotée ?

DROPS Design 13.11.2018 kl. 08:39:

Bonjour Marie-Noëlle, nos stylistes vont vérifier ce point, merci pour votre retour.

Amalie 17.09.2018 - 15:09:

Hei! Jeg bare lurte på hvordan jeg skal "korte ned" diagram A3? Skal jeg ta vekk en kolonne på høyre eller venstre side.

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 09:55:

Hej Amalie, hvis du vil have arbejdet smallere, så kan du fjerne 4 masker og strikke en rapport mindre af A.2 (som er den der skal gentages) imellem A.1 og A.3 som er kanterne i hver side. God fornøjelse!

Iben Jensen 23.07.2018 - 07:37:

Det ser ud til at der er fejl i mønster A.3. Skal der ikke kun være fire masker? Jeg vil mene at den kolonne til højre skal fjernes, da mønsteret ellers ser forkert ud.

DROPS Design 02.08.2018 kl. 11:15:

Hei Iben. Du har rett i at mønsteret så litt feil ut, dette har nå blitt endret. God fornøyelse videre.

Pia 13.12.2017 - 12:05:

Bikube håndklæderne er virkelig fine. Dem kunne jeg godt tænke mig at lave når opskriften kommer.

Véronique 11.12.2017 - 16:05:

Bel ensemble à tricoter avec le e-283 . Vous ferez des envieuses .
