The directions for seed stitch seem to be different than the video instructions..... is there an error in the pattern directions.

DROPS Design 25.10.2018 kl. 08:42:

Dear Bernadette, the double moss seed stitch in this pattern is worked as shown in the video below - which difference have you seen? Happy knitting!

Valérie P. 17.10.2018 - 08:25:

Bonjour, je vois que vous venez de rectifier la 1ère parenthèse concernant le col. Vous avez mis "de ne pas relever les 16m. de chaque côté du milieu devant", alors qu'avant vous parliez de "10m."

DROPS Design 17.10.2018 kl. 12:30:

Bonjour Valérie P., pour la veste en Eskimo, on ne relève pas les mailles du col dans les 10 m de chaque côté, pour celle en Nepal on ne relève pas les mailles du col dans les 16 m de chaque côté. Bon tricot!

Mery 16.10.2018 - 20:47:

Est il possible d'avoir les explications en français? Merci

DROPS Design 17.10.2018 kl. 08:21:

Bonjour Mme Mery, tous nos modèles sont disponibles en français, cliquez sur le menu sous la photo pour changer la langue. Bon tricot!

Valérie P. 16.10.2018 - 08:50:

Bonjour, Concernant le montage du col (ouvrage en eskimo), je dois reprendre 24 mailles (ou 28) après le marqueur des 10 mailles rabattues du demi-devant. Hors, il s'avère que pour arriver à la fin, j'obtiens plus de 40 mailles... puis je avoir plus de précision? Merci à vous

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Valérie P., ajustez bien le nombre de mailles que vous relevez le long des côtés de l'encolure (voir vidéo), si vous avez toujours trop de mailles, vous pouvez diminuer à intervalles réguliers au rang suivant pour ajuster au nombre de mailles requis. Bon tricot!

Ornella 30.08.2018 - 07:03:

Meraviglioso! questo sara' il mio prossimo lavoro :)

Eva 29.08.2018 - 13:33:

Que medidas y gramos debería usar para realizarlo con Alpca (4mm de aguja)

DROPS Design 18.09.2018 kl. 11:57:

Hola Eva. Este patrón con Alpaca hay que trabajarlo con 2 hilos. La cantidad del material depende del modelo ( si es con manga corta o larga), la talla, la aguja y la tensión del tejido. Aprox. vas a necesitar 1 ovillo menos de Alpaca que las cantidades de Nepal indicadas en el patrón.

Guylaine 25.08.2018 - 19:10:

Bonjour, j'aime ce modele mais puis je le faire en fil plus petit question que cette veste ne soit pas aussi epaisse. Comment faire pour la grandeur dans ce cas. Merci

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 14:13:

Bonjour Guylaine, ce modèle existe en deux versions différentes: 1 en laine du groupe E (Eskimo ou Andes) et 1 en laine du groupe C (en Nepal) plus bas sur la page des explications. Pour une autre tension, il vaudra mieux regarder un autre modèle correspondant à votre échantillon, ce sera plus simple que de recalculer entièrement le modèle. Bon tricot!

Carmela Siegel-Heck 05.08.2018 - 14:22:

Unterschied Eskimo-Nepal? Wo bekomme ich Wolle? Ist "L" Größe 44?

DROPS Design 06.08.2018 kl. 09:33:

Lliebe Frau Siegel-Heck, DROPS Eskimo ist ein dickes einfädiges Garn und Nepal ist etwas dünner - bei den jeweiligen Farbkarten lesen Sie mehr. Hier finden Sie Ihren Händler! Hier lesen Sie mehr über Masse und Grösse. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Diane Florin 31.07.2018 - 21:04:

Bonjour, je trouve ce modèle superbe. Les explications sont-elles disponibles quelque part en français svp ? Merci d'avance !

DROPS Design 01.08.2018 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Mme Florin, tout à fait, cliquez sur le menu déroulant sous la photo pour changer la langue. Bon tricot!

Gisse 30.06.2018 - 05:25:

Hola! Me encanta este modelo y estoy tratando de hacer pero tengo una pregunta, en la parte del cuello los puntos se rematan? No sé dejan en espera? De antemano muchas gracias y saludos!

DROPS Design 30.06.2018 kl. 19:12:

Hola Gisse. En la parte del escote los puntos se rematan y después se recogen para hacer el cuello. Esto permite que el cuello se mantenga mejor en vertical.
