'Puddel' is niet mere verkrijgbaar. Welk garen raadt u me aan als alternatief aub?

DROPS Design 08.04.2018 kl. 20:02:

Hallo Sarah, Qua karakteruitstraling is DROPS Alpaca Bouclé een geschikt alternatief voor pudel. Het valt alleen in een andere garengroep, waardoor je 2 draden zou kunnen nemen in plaats van 1.

Stickade den stora storleken men 200 g räckte inte! Mina öronlappar fick bli kortare, vilket ser ok ut men var ett stressmoment. Har stickat ett annat mönster från Drops och då räckte inte garnet heller. Vad gör jag för fel? Eller är det inte beräknat korrekt i de större storlekarna? Varför har garnet Puddel utgått! Det är ju det som gör hela mössan! Ska försöka improvisera med annat garn. Tack för många fina mönster som lockar till handarbete :)

Hi, is this knitted with 1 or 2 treads ...it says cast on and then increase and then when do i start working working with 2 tread after the increase or from the beginning? Thanks

DROPS Design 13.02.2017 kl. 09:48:

Dear Selam, you first cast on and work with 1 thread Eskimo, then continue with 2 threads Eskimo when piece measures 9 cm. Happy knitting!

Is there a Crochet pattern for this hat ? I don't know how to knit , but I love the look of this hat !! Thank you

DROPS Design 13.01.2017 kl. 08:44:

Dear Mrs Kehr, this is only a knitted pattern, you can find all our crochet hats here or why not trying to learn knitting with the help of our knitting lessons and videos. Happy knitting!

I do not understand how to make the ties, and I cant find a video. What is meant by...fold strands double and "cable"

DROPS Design 25.11.2016 kl. 08:52:

Dear Mrs Howsam, ties consist on a braid with 3 strand of yarn folded double, divide the strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid them into plaits. Happy knitting!

I measured from first row to the center of row on needle . At 9 1/2 inches in looks much smaller that picture.nhow do I measure length?

Hanna 19.11.2011 - 11:42:

Fantastisk Mössa! Snabb att göra och lika rolig varje gång. Jag är inne på nummer 4 nu. Jag önskar att den fanns i fler storlekar, för barn osv. Skall testa och se om jag kan göra ett mönster själv som passar en tvååring, och sticka den i Ice-garnet.
