Hi Jeanette, can you confirm please that the colour we see in the photo for the border is the colour # 04 Medium Pink as stated in the pattern? I believe that the colour in the photo it's much lighter! Many many thanks

DROPS Design 01.03.2019 kl. 16:11:

Dear Mrs Vaggelis, the colour used on the picture is no 04, but the colour may look different from screen to screen. Do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store - even per mail or telephone - for further assistance choosing a colour. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup ce modèle, mais je suis surprise qu'il soit réaliser avec une laine Aiguilles recommandées: 3,5 mm alors que le modèle est tricoté en Aiguille circulaire DROPS n°6 cela fait une grande différence de taille d'aiguille. Cela doit être pour le fait que ce modèle est assez vaporeux... mais la maille tricoté n'est-elle pas assez large ? J'aimerais savoir ce que vous en pensez merci bonne journée

DROPS Design 07.07.2014 kl. 09:02:

Bonjour Mme Waroquier, ce modèle se tricote volontairement en déjaugé, pour obtenir l'effet voulu, sur la base de 16 m x 22 rangs jersey = 10 x 10 cm, avec des aiguilles 6 ou celles qui vous permettront d'obtenir cet échantillon. Bon tricot!

Drops Design 01.11.2011 - 05:41:

You are right, thank you, we have edited: DROPS circular needle size 6 mm (80 cm) – or size needed to get 16 sts x 22 rows in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm.

Henrietta 01.11.2011 - 02:08:

Is the knitting tension correct? Should it not be 16 sts x 22rows?

Drops Design 10.05.2010 - 09:29:

Bonjour Magali, pour rabattre les mailles, il faut faire 2 mc dans chacune des mailles de l'aiguille avant de passer à la m suivante.

Magali 09.05.2010 - 00:05:

Bonjour, je n'arrive pas a rabattre les mailles a l'aide du crochet, quand je repique la 1ere maille: la boucle se defait, pouvez vous m'aider! cordialement
