I cannot find the chart instructions or diagram on this patter. There is a box saying no image by the diagram explanations. Please can you supply a diagram?

Dear Eve! Look at the end of the pattern, maybe in other language versions. If it doesn't work please change your browser. Happy knitting!

Mønster M.4, hva betyr på slutten "XS=54 p/v" ?

DROPS Design 06.12.2016 kl. 15:22:

Hej Catharine. Dvs, der er 54 pinne i str XS (v = varv = svensk)

Claudia Carolina 27.12.2015 - 09:16: www.fattoinitaliapor ...

Salve Drops/Garnstudio e grazie mille anche per questo schema. Sto iniziando a fare il modello ma non capisco cosa significa di fianco allo schema M4 per la taglia "L" dove dice 62 p/v non comprendo cosa significa "p/v" Grazie mille di nuovo e complimenti per la creatività e per la Alpaca che sto iniziando a conoscere e già mi ha innamorato!

DROPS Design 28.12.2015 kl. 17:50:

Buonasera Claudia, p/v sono i ferri/giri del diagramma M.4 per le diverse taglie. Buon lavoro!

Brassard Jocelyne 10.09.2015 - 05:58:

Je ne retrouve pas dans le nuancier drops alpaca les couleurs grège, ardoise, foncé, ardoise clair?

DROPS Design 10.09.2015 kl. 10:10:

Bonjour Mme Brassard, le nom des couleurs se trouve parfois ajusté au fil du temps, mais vous pouvez toujours vous fier à la référence de la couleur (2110, 7120, 7139...). Bon tricot!

Wenche 21.05.2015 - 19:06:

Er det riktig at en skal felle masker etter bråtene. Både på bol og genser?

DROPS Design 22.05.2015 kl. 14:41:

Hej Wenche, Ja du feller jevnt fordelt efter vrborden ifølge opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Michaela 30.11.2014 - 19:33:

Opskrift 108-10 ang. halskant: Er det korrekt at man skal strikke ret når man vender, så der bliver riller over mønsterstrikket? Og når man har vendt arb fire gange og strikket 80 m ret (str L) skal man så strikke fire omgange ret eller skal man gentage venderækkerne igen (60, 65, 70, 75, 80 m str L) ?

DROPS Design 03.12.2014 kl. 16:31:

Hej Michaela. Ja, du slutter af med retstrik mellem mönstret og halsrib.

Jutta 26.01.2014 - 15:06:

Hallo, wenn man dieses Modell in uni -farbe strickt, wieviel Gramm benötigt man dann? Von den einzelnen , angegebenen Farbe benötigt man ja nicht immer ein ganzes Knäuel. Gruß Jutta

DROPS Design 27.01.2014 kl. 10:10:

Liebe Jutta, dieses ältere Modell haben wir leider nicht mehr zum wiegen hier, Ich würde Ihnen empfehlen, genügend Wolle zu kaufen, damit Sie keine Probleme mit dem Farbbad bekommen.

Shirley Everett 28.12.2013 - 18:57:

Numbers of shades and description of colours do not match in several of the colours eg 7120 is not light slate grey it is light grey green and 3800 is not blue violet. Some of the others are also different.

Kate 23.10.2013 - 11:46:

I agree with Josephine: for me it's absolutely not possible to get anywhere near a tension of 24 stitches. Needles 3.5 results in 28 ... why? I have this problem only with Alpaca, wonder what I'm doing wrong.

Anette Fischer 01.06.2013 - 18:26:

Jeg skal bestille 2ngl alpaca f.nr501(lysegrå) men bliver hele tiden afvist key combination incorrect. jeg ved ikke,hvad der er galt

DROPS Design 04.06.2013 kl. 15:58:

Hej Anette. Taster du sikkerhedskoden korrekt ind? Det kan vaere den som gaar galt.
