Bonjour Pourquoi monter les mailles avec 2 fils? Que devient le 2ème fil? Merci d avance

DROPS Design 07.01.2016 kl. 17:50:

Bonjour Mme Chataigner, monter avec 2 fils donne un montage plus ferme, on continue ensuite avec 1 seul fil (on coupe le 2ème fil). Bon tricot!

The Vivaldi yarn recommended is no longer available, so I used Alpaca silk brushed instead as suggested in your 'alternative yarn' advice.. However, even though the tension seems (just about) right the size is coming out small by several centimetres. I am using 5.5 mm needles as stated - any larger will make the knitting too thin. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Dear Mrs Poore, you will find at the end of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements for each size (in cm), compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Remember to check and keep your gauge to get correct measurements at the end. Happy knitting!

Sehr geehrte Drops Desing. Ich möchte diese schöne Jacke in dem gleichen Farbton stricken. Leider gibt es diese Farbe nicht. Welche Alternative können sie mir vorschlagen. Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe.

DROPS Design 29.03.2015 kl. 13:28:

Leider wird Vivaldi aus dem Programm genommen, evtl. erhalten Sie aber noch Braun, Grau, Beigetöne (Nr. 36, 13, 02, 33) bei Ihrem Drops-Händler, dann könnten Sie die Jacke in Streifen stricken. Alternativen finden Sie unter "Garnalternativen", als Farbverlaufsgarn z.B. Big Delight, aber es gibt keine genaue Farbkombi wie die von Vivaldi, und Big Delight ist keine Flauschwolle. Dafür würde sich Brushed Alpaca Silk anbieten, wobei es dabei auch nur Uni-Töne gibt, aber mehrere in Beige und Grau, Sie hätten also auch hier die Möglichkeit, die Jacke gestreift zu stricken. Beachten Sie, dass Sie bei Alternativgarnen die benötigte Menge anhand der Lauflänge neu berechnen müssen.

Bonjour, j'adore ce modèle mais apparemment le coloris n°10 bleu/brun n'existe pas. Quels coloris de substitution pourrais-je prendre ? 02 brun foncé + 13 beige + 09 bleu gris ?

DROPS Design 17.01.2014 kl. 09:32:

Bonjour Michèle, effectivement ce coloris n'est plus disponible. Votre magasin DROPS pourra vous aider et vous conseiller dans le choix de couleurs alternatives, n'hésitez pas à le contacter par mail ou téléphone Bon tricot!
