Bonjour merci pour votre réponse j'ai bien les 172 mailles mais justement je ne comprends pas le Cheminement des points quand on commence l'empiecement.... Je pense qu'il y a une coquille dans le décompte... 6 2 30(5x 4+2) 6 11 6 2 30 6 cela fait 99 mailles et non 172... Voilà ma question....

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 09:40:

Bonjour Mme Dennez, il manquait effectivement des mailles dans la répartition des mailles, elle a été corrigée, merci. Bon tricot!

Nathalie DENNEZ 26.11.2018 - 19:29:

Bonjour, n\\\'y a t il pas une coquille sur l\\\'empiecement 172 mailles.... Mais j\\\'arrive à 99 mailles... Il me manque à priori 63 mailles, pouvez vous regarder, svp??

DROPS Design 27.11.2018 kl. 08:00:

Bonjour Mme Dennez, après la séparation de l'ouvrage, vous avez: 41 m pour chaque devant et 90 m pour le dos (quand toutes les diminutions sont terminées), soit 41+90+41= 172 m. Bon tricot!

Marion Homer 11.11.2018 - 15:47:

How much yarn do I need? Number of balls or size of balls or total grams needed?

DROPS Design 11.11.2018 kl. 22:18:

Dear Marion, you need 350g of DROPS Melody, which is available in 50g balls, so you need 7 balls of this yarn. Happy knitting!

Stefanie Silvia Oechslin-Walpole 28.01.2018 - 15:52:

Il y aune coquille sur le nombre de maille pour la capuche : il est noté 14 augmentations au lieu de 4.

DROPS Design 29.01.2014 kl. 16:37:

Bonjour et merci Bibi, le modèle a été corrigé. Bon tricot !

Jovaleri 08.04.2012 - 05:23:

On page 2 of the pattern, why have DROPS used the term "Garter st. pattern" for what is obviously Stocking Stitch. I see that below on this page Garter Stitch and Stocking Stitch are defined according to my understanding of the terms.

DROPS Design 10.04.2012 kl. 01:23:

Before the pattern starts, we give some explanations to things that will occur in the pattern. We explain the term garter st, since in the pattern the front band sts are worked in garter st.

AH 15.07.2010 - 19:30:

This is such a great pattern. Please translate this into American English. Thank you.
