Sara Vernon 03.02.2019 - 22:51:

Hi I don't understand the instruction on the jacket fronts to knit 2 stitches towards mid front in garter stitch. Why and won't it ruin the pattern?

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 13:56:

Dear Mrs Vernon, these 2 sts are towards mid front are for front band sts and will be worked in garter stitch until you start to bind off for neck. Happy knitting!

Kirsti 16.10.2018 - 12:32:

I have knitted lots and lots of Drops items (maybe hundreds) and normally I get the tension right by using the recommended needle size. With this pattern, though, my tension was way, way out and even when increasing to a size 3mm needle I am still maybe 10% out. I am using Baby Merino as well, so don't understand how this is happening. Has anybody else had the same problem?

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 15:49:

Dear Kirsti, remember needle size is only a suggestion! If you have too many stitches on 10 cm switch to larger needles. If you have too few stitches on 10 cm switch to smaller needles. You may like to first wash your swatch then check the tension again after drying, and then only adjust needle size if necessary. Happy knitting!

Quiquinne 02.10.2018 - 19:14:

Quel point pour ce modèle 1 maille endroit une envers ok mais pour le retour que fait on?

DROPS Design 03.10.2018 kl. 07:41:

Bonjour Quiquinne, M.1 se tricote ainsi: Rang1: 1 m end, 1 m env. Rang 2 (en allers et retours = sur l'envers): tricotez toutes les mailles à l'envers / (en rond): tricotez toutes les mailles à l'endroit. Rang3: 1 m env, 1 m end. Rang4 = comme le rang 2. Bon tricot!
