In this pattern why do you decrease during the first few rows before starting the actual pattern? Is it to stop the garment from rolling up? I have never seen this in a pattern before.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 10:13:

Dear Brenda, the decreases made on the very first row will shape the first tips that will happen when working M.1 and M.1B (= diagrams) on next row from RS. Happy knitting!

Glitter is just an effect, and doesn't mean anything for the gauge. You can use it or you can knit without it. It's very important to make a sample. The yarn used for that is not a waste :-) It's part of the project.

Christin 15.04.2009 - 07:31:

Hi! Can I use a yarn other than Glitter for this pattern? I was thinking of Safran or Cotton Viscose. What do you think? If I knit the gauge sample, how do I unravel the Vivaldi again? It gets all tangled up and the yarn is too precious to be wasted. Do you have an advice for me? Thanks for your help!

Je remercie Nathalie de Garnstudio qui m'a aidée à comprendre le diagramme M2 de ce très beau modèle Je ne regrette pas d'avoir perséverer, il est magnifique! iviva

L'explication des diminutions de ce modèle me semble fausse. Qui peut m'aider ? Merci.

Hej, Alpacka och Vivaldi har inte samma stickfasthet och det är den du måste gå efter.

Tillis 14.08.2008 - 16:16:

Skulle detta mönster gå att sticka i alpacka istället?

Prachtig. Ik houd van de uitdaging van zo'n ingewikkeld patroon.
