Man kan ikke se diagrammerne :( Kan dette fixes?

Graeme 06.10.2018 - 09:00:

Instructions for finishing back don’t make sense! Fir adult 3rd size it says ‘when work measures 64cm bind off the centre ......’ then later it says ‘at same time when the work measures 62cm, bind off for the shoulder’. I assume this measurement is correct as that is when I bound off in front so am wondering what the correct measurement should be to cast off for the centre neck. Help! Thanks.

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 10:27:

Dear Mrs Graeme, you are right, both sentences have been swapped, you should first bind off for the shoulder as on back piece, and at the same time bind off for neck as explained. Pattern will be fixed, thank you. Happy knitting!

Hilde Taylor 18.04.2016 - 18:40:

Hi, I have just got past the point of doing the bind offs for the armholes leaving 138 st front and 138 st back and so I have just started working back and forth instead of working in the round. It says "decrease every other row" but I am confused as I have just decreased 3 stitches on both the RS and 3 at the WS, leaving me with 132. Do I now skip decreasing for the next 2 rows back and forth or carry on decreasing? Thanks I need this finished if I can by Saturday! Hilde.

DROPS Design 19.04.2016 kl. 08:56:

Dear Mrs Taylor, in 2nd size, you bind off for armholes 3 sts 2 times, then 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 4 times, 110 sts remain - bind off these sts at the beg of every row on each side. Then When piece measures 46 cm divide work for V-neck and continue each side separately dec 1 st every other row (= every row from RS) 15 times. Happy knitting!

Jeg vil gerne strikke denne vest i alpaka garn kan I give mig nr på de farver jeg skal bruge så farverne bliver de samme som i opskriften

DROPS Design 16.02.2015 kl. 15:39:

Hej Inge-Lise. Du kan kontakte din butik med hjaelp til at finde de rette farver. De hjaelper dig gerne med at finde de rette kombinationer. God fornöjelse.

Lilli Larsen 30.01.2014 - 17:08:

Hej,jeg kunne tænke mig at strikke denne vest 59-5 small/medium, men uden mønster i garn Fabel Long Print. Skal jeg også bruge 400 gr i denne garn type og vil maske antal på opskriften passe til garnet? På forhånd tak for hjælpen. Hilsen Lilli

DROPS Design 06.02.2014 kl. 20:18:

Hej Lilli, denne oppskrift passer veldigt fint till Fabel. Silke-Tweed hade 200 m per 50 gram vilket er nextan exakt samme. Vi tror du har nok med 300 gram = 6 nystan.

Birgit 20.12.2013 - 17:57:

Nu kan jag tyda tecknen. Hjärtligt tack och God Jul!

DROPS Design 20.12.2013 - 09:34:

Hej Birgit. Se om den er bedre nu :-)

Birgit 19.12.2013 - 11:34:

OK - tack. Jag har förstorat utskriften, men det hjälpte inte mycket.

Birgit Eaker 17.12.2013 - 19:41:

Omöjligt att urskilja vissa färgkoder i mönstret, t.ex. tecknen för granitgrön, sjögrön, brun. Bilden är för otydlig. Går det att göra den tydligare?

DROPS Design 19.12.2013 kl. 09:41:

Hej Birgit. Vi skal se paa sagen og publicere et nyt om vi kan. En mulighed er ogsaa at printe den i en större format.
