Vorrei realizzare solo il cardigan con il filato drops you 6. Posso comunque lavorarlo a due capi con i ferri 5? Quanto ne occorrerà? Grazie

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 18:11:

Buongiorno Cassandra, il filato drops loves you 6 appartiene allo stesso gruppo di Safran, per cui può provare a lavorare un campione e vedere se corrisponde a quello indicato. Per la quantità di filato necessaria, faccia riferimento a questo link. Buon lavoro!
