Hi, love the pattern but am a bit confused with the instructions for the sleeve cap shaping. It seems to knit as a raglan shape rather than a square/ set in sleeve as per the diagram and the photograph. Is it me or are the instructions incorrect? Many thanks

Modèle 114-31. Les rangs raccourcie par exemple je tricote 36mailles je tourne l’ouvrage je passe la maille de gauche sur la droite et je tricote 36 mailles au rang suivant je tricote 34 et je fais la même chose. Est-ce comme cela.

DROPS Design answered:

Bonjour Lucie, pour les rangs raccourcis du bonnet, vous devez tricoter d'abord les 36 premières mailles en début de rang sur l'endroit, tournez et tricotez ces 36 mailles comme avant (sur l'envers -adaptez à votre façon de tricoter les rangs raccourcis , sur l'envers vous tricotez jusqu'à la fin du rang); tournez et tricotez les 34 premières mailles seulement, tournez et tricotez le rang sur l'envers jusqu'à la fin du rang et continuez ainsi, autrement dit vous avez à chaque fois 2 rangs: 1 rang sur l'endroit sur moins de mailles que sur l'aiguille et 1 rang sur l'envers jusqu'à la fin du rang. Bon tricot!

Stickar Tiny Bear modell me-086-by skall sticka kropp och armar förstår inte Ska jag sticka 9m i början av varvat och sedan lägga upp 4m och vända arbetet ? Ska man inte lägga upp i slutet av varvet 4 m ?

14.02.2024 - 18:42:

DROPS Design answered:

Hei Yvonne. På denne pinnen skal du strikke begge ermene. Først strikk du 9 masker, så legger du opp 4 nye masker = 13 masker på høyre pinne. Snu arbeidet og strikk over de 4 nye maskene + 4 masker av de 9 første maskene. Du har nå strikket over 8 masker (=1. erme). Nå skal du strikke 20 varv over disse 8 maskene, fell av + klipp tråden = 1. erm ferdig strikket. Start med ny tråd og strikk 10 masker på "kroppen", legg opp 4 masker og strikk 2. erme på samme måte som 1.erme. Når 2. erme er ferdig strikket, start med ny tråd og strikk de 5 siste maskene på pinne. mvh DROPS Design

Czy na podkroju rękawa wszystkie zamykania robią się w jednym rzędzie?

13.02.2024 - 14:54:

DROPS Design answered:

Witaj Laryso, to zależy od wzoru. Zwykle zamykamy oczka na podkroje rękawów w kilku rzędach (zazwyczaj na prawej stronie robótki) . W komentarzu pod konkretnym wzorem wyślij do nas pytanie, napisz jaki rozmiar przerabiasz i wtedy będę mogła udzielić Ci bardziej konkretnej pomocy. Pozdrawiamy!

Dzień dobry! Mam problem z zamykaniem oczek na podkroje rękawów :( Po pierwsze czy zamykanie oczek tylko na prawej stronie czy też na lewej ? Jeden raz zamknąć 3 oczka to znaczy przerobić trzy oczka razem? Jak zamknąć jedno oczko ?

10.02.2024 - 16:21:

DROPS Design answered:

Witaj Laryso, to zależy od wzoru. Zwykle zamykamy oczka na podkroje rękawów na prawej stronie robótki. Zamknąć 3 oczka na podkrój rękawa nie oznacza przerobienia 4 oczek razem (zamknięte 3 oczka), ale raczej takie zamknięcie tych oczek, jakbyś kończyła robótkę. Jak to zrobić znajdziesz TUTAJ. Pozdrawiamy!

Hei Regina. Garnmengden til dette teppet finner du i begynnelsen av oppskriften under Garnåtgång. Ønsker du å bytte farger må du se på bilde og finne ut av hvilken farge du vil bytte med og så sjekke garnmengden under garnåtgång. mvh DROPS Design

I am knitting pattern 231-59 on circular needles and cannot see how the instructions given for diagonal shoulders work to give a final length of 66 cm(size XL) when only 3 rows on the shoulder has been knitted. Instructions for a diagonal shoulder in your help videos show more rows with increases. Do you have a video specific to this pattern please. I am grateful for any help. Thank you

Drops 67-4 or pattern Kerp it Together Front finished up to collar where I put 8 stitches in st holder. Do I then use 2 separate needles and separate yarn for the stitches on each side of those? I’m lost and don’t know how to proceed.

07.02.2024 - 15:47:

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Mrs McKay, you can slip the Middle 8 stitches on a thread (see video or on a stitch holder) , then you will just have to cast off the stitches for neck at the beginning of every row from neck (each shoulder is finished separately). Happy knitting!

Hej. Jeg skal strikke denne sweaters(ikke patent) til barn 7 år. Hvor mange masker skal jeg slå op??

DROPS Design answered:

He Jane. Nå har du sendt inn ditt spørmål under generelle kommentarer til "Hvordan kan jeg få hjælp med en DROPS opskrift?" uten å opplyse hvilken oppskrift du har tenkt å strikke. I hver enkelt oppskrift vil det stå hvor mange masken man skal legge opp. Om dette gjelder en voksen genser i patent du ønsker å omregne til ikke patent og barnestørrelse, har dessverre ikke design avd mulighet til å omrege/skrive om en allerede skrevet oppskrift. mvh DROPS Design

Drops 88-20. Girls 3rd size Front only. Hi thank you for your response but this didn’t answer my query. 1. First row (front). 83 sts (incl ch3turn). Repeat *-*. Once repeats are done x9 then dc x 2 there are 22 dc. Correct - but what about the remaining sts? Is this done along the row? If so it doesn’t work out. ‘Establish the pattern’ There are no instructions as to how many dc are to be done before/after pattern only ‘continue with dc at each side’. Too vague. ‘

29.01.2024 - 18:27:

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Ali, for the front piece you are working two halves of the front piece with Diagram 2 in the middle. From the beginning to when you get 22 dc is one half of the front piece, then you work as indicated in "work as follows" in the same round. This would correspond to Diagram 2 and the last 22 dc is the other half. So it would be all the same round from "The first row is worked as follows" to "turn the piece". Now, diagram 2 is worked over the stitches between the 22dc on each side. Happy knitting!

Drops 88-20 Girls. The written instructions don’t make any sense (to me) 1. 1st row. Is the skip 1ch, 1dc in following 2 chain repeated along row? It just doesn’t work out. 2. Pattern. How many dc each side before pattern starts in middle? I’ve already finished the back for this top without too much trouble but the front is just a complete mystery to me. Please help as I’m very close to putting it in the bin!

28.01.2024 - 22:26:

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Ali, the first row works out fine. For example, for size 5/6 years in the back piece you have 73 ch. 3 of the ch. Now, start the row with 1 dc in the 4th ch. You should have 69 ch left in the row. Now skip the next ch and work 1 dc in the next 2 chain stitches. Repeat this 23 times in total and you will reach the end of the row. You should have 47 dc + (as stated in Crochet info) 3 chain stitches that count as 1 dc. For the front piece, you only repeat this a certain amount of times, as stated in the pattern. Which size are you working, so that we may indicate the exact number of dc before the charts? Happy crocheting!
