Wie viel Wolle benötige ich denn, wenn ich den Kragen mit einem Faden Polaris stricke?

DROPS Design 04.12.2014 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Elisa, von Polaris benütigen Sie 2 Knäuel (à 100 g) um auf die angegebene Fadenlänge zu kommen.

Roseliaj, yes cut yarn after finishing each ear flap and start with new yarn when casting on for hat. 1st row you knit on your ear flap is the right side.

Roseliaj 20.12.2010 - 23:03:

When making the hat, do I cut the threads after making each earflap and placing on stitch holder? Also, when I cast on the first stitches for the earflap, will the first side I knit be the right side?

Drops Design 07.10.2010 - 17:31:

Directions say: dec by K tog approx every 3rd and 4th and every 4th and 5th st alternately. This means you first knit tog 3rd and 4th, then 4th and 5th, then 3rd and 4th, then 4th and 5th, and so on...until 21 sts are dec.

I'm having trouble reducing the stitches in the wrap from 93 to 72. It doesn't reduce equally, and your directions aren't that clear.

Jeg laget denne til meg selv i naturhvit med den øverste vrangborden i lilla. Datteren min på fem forlangte å få prøve den og fant ut at det ble et flott skjørt!

Nordic Mart 30.07.2008 - 02:57:

Pattern sais first to cast on for the ear flaps and then when they are finished you add sts inbetween for the hat.

Gail 30.07.2008 - 02:29:

On this pattern for the hat, how many stitches do I cast on?

Anki 20.06.2008 - 17:43:
