Increasing tip: Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st.

Mitten: Worked back and forth on needle in stocking st. Cast on 52-52-56 sts on needle size 5.5 mm with 2 threads Alpaca. Work stocking st until piece measures 5 cm. Remember the knitting tension! Now dec 8 sts evenly on row = 44-44-48 sts. When piece measures 12-13-14 cm insert a Marking Thread (MT) in st 22-22-24 (= to mark the thumb). Now inc 1 st on each side of st with MT on every other row a total of 6-7-8 times – see Increasing tip = 56-58-64 sts. On next row slip the inc sts + st with MT + 1 st either side of all these sts on a stitch holder for thumb (15-17-19 thumb sts), and cast on 3 new sts behind the thumb sts = 44-44-46 sts on row. Piece measures approx 18-20-22 cm. Continue in stocking st back and forth on these sts. When piece measures 32.5 -35.5-38.5 cm work all sts tog 2 by 2 = 22-22-23 sts left on row. Pull a double thread through these, tighten threads and fasten securely. Piece mow measures 33-36-39 cm.
Thumb: Slip the 15-17-19 thumb sts back on double pointed needle size 5.5 mm and pick up 5 sts in the edge of the 3 inc sts on hand = 20-22-24 sts. Work stocking st in the round. When thumb measures approx 6-6-6.5 cm work the first 4-4-6 sts on round tog 2 by 2, and the last 4-4-6 sts on round tog 2 by 2 = 16-18-18 sts. Work 2 rounds. On next round work the first 4 sts on round tog 2 by 2 and the last 4 sts on round tog 2 by 2 = 12-14-14 sts. When thumb measures 8.5-8.5-9 cm work all sts tog 2 by 2 = 6-7-7 sts. Thumb measures 9-9-9.5 cm. Pull a double thread through remaining sts, tighten and fasten securely
Assembly: Sew side seams in the outer loops of sts.
Crochet border: Crochet a border round the opening of mitten with crochet hook size 7 mm and 2 threads Puddel as follows: 1 dc, * 3 ch, skip approx 1-1.5 cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in dc from beg of round.
With 2 threads Puddel sew a very loose seam, up and down, the side seam of mitten. Let the Puddel threads sit in small loops on top of seam.

Felt mittens in the washing machine – see below. To ensure the best possible fit, put the mittens on while they are still wet so that they form to your hand in the right size

Felting: Attach a small plastic bag to the top of thumb with a safety pin to avoid it felting tog. Wash mittens in washing machine with a powder free of enzymes and optical bleach, at 40 degrees with normal spin and without pre-wash. If after felting, the mittens are too big, you can felt them again. If they are too small, thoroughly wet them and pull into the right shape and size. At subsequent washes, wash the mittens at a wool programme.

Det er en regnefeil i oppskriften for tovet vott når det gjelder størrelsen large. De andre stemmer.Legg opp 48. Det står at en skal øke for tommel til 64 masker, sette 19 masker på tråd, legge opp 3 masker bak tommel og få 46 m. Det stemmer ikke, det blir 48m. 64 minus19 er 45 pluss 3 er 48 ikke sant?

Det er alt for meget med 40 graders vask. Det første par blev str. 5 år. Det andet par tog jeg af 3 gange 20 min. men puddelgarnet filtrede helt ind i det røde, så det stritter ikke så meget.

Skal heklekanten på etter toving?

DROPS Design 12.11.2013 kl. 10:06:

Hæklekanten skal på før toving! God fornøjelse!

Ellen 07.10.2013 - 22:14:

Når det står "to tråder", betyr det at man skal strikke med totråds alpakkagarn, eller med to separate tråder, altså fra to nøster ?

DROPS Design 08.10.2013 kl. 10:26:

Hei Ellen. Du skal strikke med to traade DROPS Alpaca - altsaa to separate tråder / separate nøster

Hvordan syr man en løs søm op og ned i sømmen langs vanten?

DROPS Design 01.02.2013 kl. 10:05:

Det er bare en løs pyntesøm, og den skal være løs så den ikke trækker kanten sammen når du filter. God fornøjelse!

Hvordan få til sånn fin "pelskant" med Puddelgarnet? Jeg syns den bare blir klumpete, og får ikke sånne loddne tråder:(

DROPS Design 29.02.2012 kl. 12:30:

Har du tovet votten alrede? Du kan prøve å "gre" den etter votten er tørr.

Merete 01.02.2011 - 14:21:

Vottene ble alt for mye tovet, tovet dem på 40 grader uten forvask. De ble helt ødelagte. :(

Hej Sonja, det röda skall inte färga av sig. Ta med dig garn och banderoller till garnaffären och reklamera ditt garn.

Sonja Kalmbach 15.11.2010 - 07:31:

Jag har stickat en röd-vit randig vante i alpaca - och det röda färgade av sig jättemycket (är rosa-röd nu). Finns det ett sätt att undvika avfärgning när man tovar (tovade i 60 grader).
