Grazie per la risposta. Siete molto gentili

Salve, complimenti per il modello, è stupendo! Vorrei farlo per la mia mamma, ma non so lavorare con i ferri circolari. Si può fare con i ferri diritti? Grazie infinitamente.

DROPS Design 27.12.2017 kl. 08:03:

Buongiorno Paola. Le spiegazioni sono per lavorare in ferri di andata e ritorno. Può usare i ferri dritti e seguire le spiegazioni senza dover modificare niente. Vengono consigliati i ferri circolari per il numero elevato di maglie. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour, dans les explications des différents points des diagramme, il y a deux fois la même légende. Pouvez-vous me dire la différence entre le 3ème point expliqué et le 4ème, svp ?? Je pense qu'il s'agit d'une erreur de recopiage. Merci beaucoup d'avance.

DROPS Design 06.10.2014 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Judith, le 4ème était erroné, il faut lire : "glisser 1 m à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, passer la m glissée par dessus la m tricotée" - correction faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Bij de 7e en 15e nld in het telpatroon is er geen goede beschrijving,je komt nl in de knoop omdat je een steek te weinig hebt. De oplossing is 1omslag, 1afhalen 2samenbreien de afgehaalde over de gebreide halen, 1omslag. Zo krijg je een mooi verloop van de steken. Dit geldt natuurlijk ook voor de kleinere telpatronen. Als je een beginner bent kom je er niet uit. Vr. Gr Maria.

Amna 29.11.2012 - 14:00:

Hi! I am a little confused. What does "adjust to a full of half vertical repeat" mean? Does it mean "adjust to a full OR half vertical repeat"?

DROPS Design 29.11.2012 kl. 14:33:

Dear Amna, it means that the most important is the indicated height in cm/inches so that you may have to work until either the 1/2 repeat indicated or the whole repeat. Happy knitting !

Hi Alessia, Yes the bolero is worked with 2 strands of yarn, 1 strand in each yarn.

Alessia 14.08.2010 - 18:50:

Hi! this pattern is all knitted using two thread? one of each quality of yarn? Thank you Alessia

DROPS Design 06.06.2010 - 03:07:

Linda, you have 203 sts. Continue from RS: 6 garter sts, M.1A (= 5 sts), M.1B (= 10 sts) 18 times on the next 180 sts, M.1C (= 6 sts), 6 garter sts, this is 6+5+180+6+6 = 203 sts.

Linda Millerick 06.06.2010 - 01:30:

There seems to be a problem with the stitch count in the pattern. From 203 sts (size med)to directions to work M.1 until piece measures 4.7". M.1 is a 21 st repeat and it is impossible to do over 191 sts (this is less the garter 6 on each side. Please help! I'm making this for my 97 yr old moms birthday. Thank you.

Hej! Vil man kunne droppe silkebåndet og i stedet sætte knapper i foran (som opskrift 105-27) eller vil den så blive for lille/ikke kunne nå sammen foran...? MVH A
