Bonjour, je suis en train de faire les chaussettes. Je ne sais pas si il faut continuer les diminutions jusqu'à 10 cms de hauteur de pied ou les arrêter à 3,5cms. Merci d'avance pour votre aide

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Madame Raban, on doit tricoter 3,5 cm, la phrase avec les 10 cm a été supprimée, merci pour votre retour. Bon tricot!

Mela 02.12.2017 - 15:51:

He empezado el vestido en lana Baby Merino (en vez de Safran) y en M.1. el resultado no me queda igual, mis agujeros casi no se notan. No se bien debido a qué es, podría ser por cómo estoy tejiendo las lazadas? ¿Cuándo tejo las lazadas (las de la cuarta fila de M.1) tengo que tejerlas por la hebra delantera o por la hebra posterior. Espero su respuesta, gracias por adelantado.

Hallo, ich verstehe bei M1 nicht, was "li von rechts, re von links" meint. Können Sie das erklären?

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 08:55:

Liebe Michaela, re von rechts, li von links = 1 M glatt rechts, dh diese Masche stricken Sie immer rechts in die Runde oder Hinreihe re und Rückreihe li. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Therese Johnsson 23.07.2017 - 00:28:

Hej! Jag ska börja med rad 2 på M1. Ska den raden läsas från vänster till höger, alltså att varvet börjar med tre räta maskor (som då hamnar över de tre aviga maskor som blev på första varvet), eller ska samtliga rader läsas från höger till vänster? Tack på förhand

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 13:50:

Då du stickar runt ska alla rader läsas från höger till vänster, stickar du fram och tillbaka läser du raderna från rätsidan från höger till vänster och raderna från avigsidan från vänster till höger.

Bonjour Kathy je voudrais faire le bonnet par contre vous dites de monter 836 m!!!!y a-t-il erreure svp? Merci

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Gertrude, c'était une faute de frappe, on doit monter 83 m dans la 2ème taille. Merci, bon tricot!

Charlotte 06.10.2016 - 17:23:

I am confused about binding off for the neck on the back side. Starting with 42 stitches on the needles after the armhole decreases, it then says to bind off the center 18 stitches. This would leave 24 stitches on the needles, 12 on each side of the bound off stitches. Then it says to bind off 1 stitch at the neck side (what is the neck side?). This would leave 23 stitches total, but the pattern says there should be 11 stitches left.

DROPS Design 07.10.2016 kl. 08:18:

Dear Charlotte, when you bind off 18 sts for neckline, 24 sts remain, ie 12 sts for each shoulder. Finish each shoulder separately and bind off then 1 st on next row from neckline = 11 sts remain for shoulder. Happy knitting!

Kathy 14.05.2016 - 16:32:

Thanks you soooo much!!!! :-)

Kathy 13.05.2016 - 14:58:

Hi - I love this pattern. I made the hat and i am trying to make the booties. It says to pick up 8 stitches from the middle. Since I end of the middle section how can i pick up stitches on the same side. I tried to pick them up but one of the seams was on the outside. Do i need to bind off the middle section and start again at the edge so i can pick them all up from the front? Sorry for confusion in advance :-) I am a new knitter :-)

DROPS Design 13.05.2016 kl. 15:28:

Dear Kathy, after you have worked the middle sts for 3 cm, cut the yarn, then start a new row from RS knitting the first 13 sts from st holder, pick up 8 sts along right side of middle part, work the 12 mid sts, pick up 8 sts long left of middle part, and work the remaining 13 sts from st holder = 54 sts. Continue then in garter st. Happy knitting!

Corinne 06.03.2016 - 17:13:

Bonjour J ai terminé les 8 rangs au pont mousse. J ai tricoté avec des aiguilles circulaires en rond. Je ne comprend pas la suite des instructions: "terminer chaque partie séparément". Je dois faire le dos puis le devant? Mais comment faire sur des aiguilles rondes, je dois mettre les mailles pour le devant sur d autres aiguilles? Il n y a pas de maille lisière alors? C est mon premier ouvrage, j avoue être un peu perdue;-) merci de votre aide.

DROPS Design 07.03.2016 kl. 10:26:

Bonjour Corinne, après les 8 rangs point mousse, glissez les mailles du devant sur un fil ou un arrêt de mailles et tricotez seulement les mailles du dos en allers et retours sur l'aiguille circulaire (voir vidéo): tricotez le 1er rang sur l'endroit, tournez et tricotez le rang suivant sur l'envers et ainsi de suite), tricotez les m lis en jersey et les autres mailles en M2. Bon tricot!
