Buongiorno, forse non interpreto correttamente i diagrammi... secondo me già a partire da A1A2A3 arrivati alla maglia centrale occorre procedere con A3A2A1 e non ripetere la sequenza A1A2A come indicato. Altrimenti il motivo non viene centrato. Giusto? Grazie
DROPS Design 11.08.2019 kl. 13:35:
Buongiorno Mara. È corretto come indicato nel testo. In questo modo avrà una maglia gettata sia prima che dopo la maglia centrale. Buon lavoro!Orchydee 10.08.2019  16:43:
Je pense que sur le diagramme A3 il manque la maille jetée à tricoter torse pour avoir les 87 mailles😉😉😉
DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 09:27:
Bonjour Orchydée, on va augmenter 8 m dans chaque A.1 et 7 m seulement dans chaque A.3, on aura ainsi: 57 m + 2 x 8 + 2 x 7 = 87 m. Bon tricot!Christine Roderick 05.08.2019  13:41:

Vraagje 9 steken opzetten? Een ribbelsteeknaald,daarna gelijk het telpatroon??
DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 13:28:
Dag Els,
Ja, dat klopt! Je zet 9 steken op, breit 2 naalden recht (= 1 ribbel) en dan ga je verder met het patroon.

Liebe Anja, dieses Modell sieht man auf unserem . Viel Spaß beim stricken!PARAVY Aurore 09.06.2019  13:50:
Bonjour, je suis arrivée aux diagrammes A19 à A21. N'y auraitil pas une erreur à partir du rang 7? Tous les surjets doubles ainsi que les mailles ensembles se font sur des rangs pairs alors que, jusqu'à présent, ils se faisaient sur les rangs impairs. Ne manqueraitil pas un rang jersey avant de faire les rangs ajourés ? Merci d'avance pour votre retour, cordialement
DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 11:08:
Bonjour Mme Paravy, le 7ème rang de A.19, A.20 et A.21 se tricotent sur l'endroit (commem tous les rangs impairs car le 1er rang du diagramme = sur l'endroit). Au 7ème rang, les 2 dernières mailles de A.19 sont indiquées dans A.20, les 2 dernières mailles de A.20 se tricotent comme les 2 premières m du A.20 suivant puis de A.21. Bon tricot!Micheline PAPILLON 06.06.2019  22:43:
Il y a une erreur sur le 23ème rang du diagramme A192021. Il y a une maille en trop avant le surjet double. Je suis en train de le tricoter j'ai rectifier l'erreur de moimême, mais il faudrait le corriger sur le diagramme si possible pour les autres tricoteuses. Merci pour tous vos jolis modèles et vos traductions. Cordialement.
