Are there any Danes willing to help with a translation?

OK, so I'm starting to trace out my first MultiSnit pattern and I can figure out most of this (I think) but I want to be sure I understand this part very well (and it's the most basic part!):

Under fabrics it says "fast stof eller stretch stof", which I know means "stable or stretch". But is it woven or knit? I can't work it out. There isn't any other information under "materialer:" about the fabric....

If anyone has an idea, thanks so much!!

Try this site - you may find the translations you are looking for. This was provided by the Fjolner site - if you write an email to them, they will also be happy to translate. Their English is very good.

Well, I had tried the translation page (in fact it's printed out and tpaed to my wall above my sewing table) but I was hoping to not have to bother them with an actual email. However, I think I will, since there was also a little piece of paper in one package that is clearly some sort of pattern correction but correcting what I have no idea!

Thanks!! I'll give them a try.

My friends response:

"Stof" just means fabric, but I suppose they would have written "strik" if they meant knit.

Due to tthe limited information (not knowing the rest of the pattern) it is the bet she could come up with

Thanks! I didn't get the impression it was supposed to be a knit, but I just can't quite tell. I emailed them to see what they have to say but as it's evening there I don't expect a reply for a while. I suppose what I'll really end up doing is just trying it out in a muslin fabric (which I was going to do anyway) and see what happens. (You're probably all asking yourselves why I didn't just do this in the first place then... um.... I like to create more problems than I really have?)

Thanks for the relay interpretation service (and thank your friend too!!).

Im sitting here with multisnit 3.31 and 3.36 and a lot of patterns call for fast stof eller stretch stof, but there are also two pattern that call for stof med lycra and these are t-shirt models.
In swedish stretchfabric is a woven fabric with stretch and from my patterns I think its the same in Denmark.
Stric stof or jersey are knitted.
I would compare the patterns with one that you know is made for either stretch or knit.

Kristine,

I checked the Danish Sewing Terms file that MariaDenmark has posted for her yahoo onioncoop. Fast stof means a firm, woven fabric. I would agree with the others that stretch stof means a woven with lycra. If the fabric needed to be a knit, it would be strik stof.

Thank you everyone!

Plus, I heard back from Fjollner (I'm not even going to try to look up the proper characters) and they apparently came to the conclusion that it meant firm woven and stretch woven. He (the person who replied) was going to doublecheck.

Oooo, I'm very excited to trace this out in full tonight and see what the muslin leads to.
