De huller, der strikkes i kanten i trøjens venstre side og nederste kant, ser ikke ud til at komme i trøjens højre kant. Er det meningen ellers har jeg overset noget i opskriften?

DROPS Design 10.06.2019 kl. 13:45:

Hej Trine, det stemmer, det blive kun hul i den side du tager ud med et omslag. Hvis du ikke vil have hul, så skal omslaget strikket drejet på næste pind. God fornøjelse!

Yvonne Porton 29.05.2019 - 13:52:

Are the sleeves raglan or not I am finding the pattern very difficult to follow, and have done the sleeves but they seem to be different from the back and front, and what is the measurement to the armhole shaping.

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 14:18:

Hi Yvonne. The right sleeve is worked with a raglan increase - ie: you increase in each side, every 2. round. Similarly to the body, it's worked with garter stitches to begin with, and then in ridge pattern. The left sleeve is worked with ridge pattern, back and forth, top down. There's no raglan on the left sleeve, since the front and back pieces are worked in an angle / diagonal. The measurements for sleeve opening can be found at the measurement sketch at the bottom of the page. Happy knitting.

Yvonne Porton 29.05.2019 - 13:42:

Are the sleeves both raglan and not one of each, I am finding the pattern very difficult to follow. Could you please explain it to me or correct the errors if there are any.

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 14:04:

Dear Mrs Porton, only one of the sleeve is raglan (= right sleeve when jumper is worn) - see also on measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Dzień dobry. Bardzo podoba mi się wzór tego swetra i chętnie bym go zrobiła. Niestety ma tylko cienką Drops Delight. Czy jeśli wezmę podwójną nitkę to wystarczy ? Dodam, ze rozmiar M ze wzoru jest idealny na moje potrzeby.

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 19:13:

Witaj Haniu! Włóczka BIG Delight jest z grupy C, a Delight z grupy A. 2 nitki z grupy A dają w rezultacie C, tak więc możesz bez przeszkód przerabiać ten sweter 2 nitkami włóczki Delight. Powodzenia!

Barbara Liebing 27.02.2019 - 21:29:

Hallo, kann es sein das in der Anleitung vom Vorderteil ein Fehler ist ? Da steht " ..., die nächsten 16 Maschen rechts stricken (= für den Halsausschnitt ),... Diese 16 Maschen müssten doch abgekettet werden, sonst stimmt die Anzahl der Maschen vorher und nachher nicht .

DROPS Design 28.02.2019 kl. 09:34:

Liebe Frau Liebing, ja genau, diese 16 Maschen sollen Sie abketten - danke für den Hinweis, deutsche Anleitung wird angepasst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anne Berdal 24.02.2019 - 12:51:

På billedet er der flere farver - i opskriften kun 2. Er det meningen, at jeg selv skal finde på flere? Og i så fald, hvor meget garn skal jeg så bruge i hver farve?

DROPS Design 28.02.2019 kl. 14:06:

Hej Anne, DROPS Big Delight är melerade färger se här: DROPS Big Delight :)

Isabell Klein 15.02.2019 - 17:24:

Habe ein Problem bei der Anleitung Vorderteil: nachdem der Markierer gesetzt wurde 27 cm stricken. Das sind bei 23 R= 10cm 62 Reihen. Je eine Masche am Anfang und Ende in jeder 2. 44M abgenommen-=Reihe abnehmen= 62M. 123 M-62M = 61M. Laut Anleitung aber ca.79M. Das wären aber nur 19cm. Was sehe ich falsch?

DROPS Design 19.02.2019 kl. 08:44:

Liebe Frau Klein, in die Grösse XXL stricken Sie von 54 cm bis 73 cm in die Strickrichting (27 cm für die Schulter sind im Diagonal gemessen) = 19 cm = 44 Reihen = 44 M abgenommen. Es waren 123 M - 44 = 79 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Olivia 12.02.2019 - 20:24:

Bellissimo! Finalmente un asimmetrico!
