Bonjour, J'ai des difficultés pour tricoter le beret en jacquard avec le patron N° 143-16 (laine Nepal ) Je ne parviens pas à savoir quelle couleur utiliser pour les jetés (yarn overs), lorsqu'ils sont entre deux mailles, rien ne correspond plus au motif, j'ai tenté d'utiliser la couleur beige et de les placer en dehors du motif mais ce que j'obtiens c'est deux jetés consécutifs ce qui n'est pas aisé à tricoter. Merci d'avance Cordialement Laure

Bonjour Mme Baudou, adaptez la couleur du jeté en fonction de la couleur tricotée sur le rang ou le suivant, ex. au rang 2, vous pouvez faire les jetés en chameau, aux rangs suivants, vous pouvez les faire en beige, au rang suivant, tricotez-les dans la couleur adéquate dans la grille. Bon tricot!

Grazie mille.

Loreta 20.08.2014 - 08:51:

Buongiorno gentili Signore della Drops. E' da tempo che aspetto una risposta da voi su questo modello ma niente ancora. Posso sperare in una vostra spiegazione su questo modello? vorrei farlo in tinta unita. Grazie

DROPS Design 20.08.2014 kl. 09:20:

Buongiorno Loreta. Abbiamo già inoltrato la sua segnalazione alla casa madre. Eventuali modifiche alle spiegazioni del modello verranno apportate direttamente on line.

Loreta 30.07.2014 - 22:58:

Mi sono dimenticata di dire che si tratta di ferri 3,5 e 4,5 per tutti e due i modelli

DROPS Design 26.08.2014 kl. 11:05:

Buongiorno Loreta, abbiamo inoltrato la sua richiesta alla casa madre, se ci saranno correzioni le potrà trovare direttamente sul sito! Buon lavoro!

Loreta 30.07.2014 - 20:50:

Salve e scusate ancora ma c'è qualcosa in questo modello che non mi quadra. Si inizia con 84 punti quando su un modello per bambini per la taglia 3/5 si inizia con 88. Come mai? Ho già fatto il bordo intanto ed effettivamente è piccolo.

DROPS Design 26.08.2014 kl. 11:04:

Buongiorno Loreta, abbiamo inoltrato la sua richiesta alla casa madre, se ci saranno correzioni le potrà trovare direttamente sul sito! Buon lavoro!

Loreta 29.07.2014 - 10:27:

Buongiorno, vorrei fare anche questo berretto ma non capisco una cosa : dice che bisogna fare 7 cm di costa 2d e 2r ma dalla foto non mi sembra tanto alto il bordo.

DROPS Design 29.07.2014 kl. 12:03:

Buongiorno Loreta. Abbiamo corretto il testo: sono 7 giri. Grazie per la segnalazione e buon lavoro!

Maria 03.01.2014 - 06:37:

I do not understand where to put the yarn overs; or what color should I use, I am working on the hat now I am on the 2nd row of the chart for the hat. Please help!

DROPS Design 03.01.2014 kl. 08:58:

Dear Maria, you can make the YOs in light beige and then work as stated in diag. Happy knitting!

Maria 29.12.2013 - 06:47:

I like this pattern; but I did change my needles to size 7-24inch needle; it seems to large for this number of stitches.
