Hallo, Kann ich die 2 Fäden Vivaldi auch ersetzen durch 1 Faden Big Delight und 1 Faden Big Merino? Oder kann es problematisch weden, wenn ich unterschiedliche Wollqualitäten mische? Gruß Birgit

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 10:34:

Liebe Birgit, am besten ersetzen Sie je 1 Faden Vivaldi mit entweder 1 Faden Brushed Alpaca Silk oder 2 Fäden Kid-Silk. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalterantiven. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ingrid Sörensen 31.01.2019 - 22:18:

I mönster 80-18 står det att man ska sticka rätstickning till färdigt mått. Men det finns beskrivning på mönsterstickning också. När ska man sticka mönsterstickning?

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 08:33:

Hei Ingrid. Det strikkes Mønster på ermene, og det står forklart når dette gjøres. God fornøyelse.

Ingrid Sörensen 25.01.2019 - 16:26:

Vill ersätta Vivaldi i mönster Drops 80-18 med ett ullgarn en tråd. Vilket garn kan jag använda och i så fall hur mycket. Det ska gärna bli lite fastare resultat än med Vivaldi. Tacksam för snabbt svar. Mvh Ingrid

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 09:03:

Hej Ingrid, Du kan välja 1 tråd DROPS Melody som stickas på samma stickfasthet (14 maskor på 10 cm) . Lycka till :)

Cintia 10.01.2019 - 04:45:

Não estou entendendo como fazer o capuz. Poderiam explicar de forma mais clara? Obrigada

Irina 15.12.2018 - 21:39:

Hei, hvilken alternativ garn skal brukes istedet for 2 tråd av vivaldi garn i oppskriften 80-18? Takk

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 11:26:

Hei Irina. Vivaldi tilhører garngruppe C, så du kan i utgangspunktet bytte det med hvilket som helst garn i samme garngruppe, se en overiskt her. Det garnet som gir det likeste resultatet er Brushed Alpaca Silk. Lag uansett en prøvelapp så du er sikker på at strikkefastheten stemmer overens med oppskriften. God fornøyelse,

Katherine 13.06.2018 - 11:18:

De vivaldi draad bestaat niet meer en er wordt oa geadviseerd de nepal te gebruiken... maar die heeft al met één draad naalden 5 nodig... wanneer ik 2 draden ge samengebruiken ga ik toch veel te dik garen hebben voor naalden 5,5?

DROPS Design 13.06.2018 kl. 12:53:

Dag Katherine, Inderdaad, je kunt 1 draad Vivaldi vervangen door 1 draad Nepal, want ze zitten beide in garengroep B.

Gabriele 23.10.2017 - 17:33:

.. liebes Drops Team,.. ich bin total verunsichert was die Farben angeht. Eurem Rat zufolge habe ich mich nun für Kid Silk entschieden und hier für die Garnfarben: dunkelbraun unicolor 15 und hell graublau unicolor 07 Sind die Farben richtig für die Jacke 80-18?, oder schlagt ihr mir eine andere Nummer bei Kid Silk vor? Die Jacke soll farblich genau so werden wie abgebildet. (zumindest sehr ähnlich)

DROPS Design 24.10.2017 kl. 08:32:

Liebe Gabriele, am besten fragen Sie Ihr DROPS Laden, die haben Farben vor Augen und so können Sie Ihnen besser beraten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gabriele Paulus 22.10.2017 - 20:14:

Ich würde gerne die Jacke in der gleichen Farbe stricken wie abgebildet. Welches Altzernativgarn soll ich nehmen, (Vivaldi ist ja nicht mehr verfügbar) wieviel brauche ich für Größe XL und kann ich das bei euch bestellen?

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 11:56:

Liebe Frau Paulus, am besten können Sie 2 Fäden Kid-Silk (= 1 Faden Vivaldi) siehe hier oder 1 Faden Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 1 Faden Vivaldi) ersetzen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Julia 11.09.2017 - 23:14:

Hallo, welchen Durchmesser haben die hier verwendeten Knöpfe? Vielen Dank, Julia

DROPS Design 12.09.2017 kl. 08:37:

Liebe Julia, Knöpfe von 20 mm Durchmesser sollen passen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Eva 27.10.2016 - 11:16:

Um eine feinere Optik zu erhalten, würde ich die Jacke gerne glatt rechts stricken. Ist das möglich bzw was ist zu beachten? Muss dennoch mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt werden? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 27.10.2016 kl. 11:22:

Liebe Eva, die Maschenprobe Kraus oder glatt re. gestrickt sind verschieden, das müssen sie beachten. Für weitere persönnliche Anfragen wird Ihnen Ihren DROPS Laden gerne helfen.
