Bonjour,Etant novice, je ne comprends pas ce qu'il faut faire quand j'arrive à : Tricoter les 6 m du milieu devant à l'envers au 1er tour, (je ne comprends pas le "milieu devant à l'envers", et est-ce toujours en jersey ?) Merci pour votre réponse !

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 10:19:

Bonjour Débutante, quand vous joignez votre ouvrage en rond, tricotez les 6 mailles au milieu de l'ouvrage (au niveau de la jonction) à l'envers, par exemple ainsi: tricotez le dernier rang sur l'endroit, mais tricotez les 3 dernières mailles à l'envers, tricotez ensuite les 3 mailles suivantes (= celles du début de votre rang) à l'envers également = vous avez 6 mailles envers au milieu devant du poncho. Continuez en jersey endroit (= à l'endroit tous les tours) comme avant. Bon tricot!

Jill 25.07.2018 - 04:09:

Hello: I'm working on the booties and have just slipped my first 9 stitches onto my stitch holder. How do I work the remaining stitches when my working yarn is at the end of the stitch holder? Do I cross all 9 stitches that I just slipped or should I be knitting the first 9 stitches and then slip them? Thanks for your help!

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hi Jill, You continue working from where the strand is back and forth over the remaining stitches. Happy knitting!

Sussi Jensen 08.07.2018 - 20:18:

What alternative yarn can I knit this with. The person I have in mind is allergic to wool. Thanks so much, and I think your patterns are awesome. I have been waiting for someone knit worthy to make this for. Tusind tak .

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 09:01:

Dear Mrs Jensen, you will read more about alternatives here.. For any further personnal assistance choosing a yarn you are welcome to contact your DROPS store even per mail, telephone or via the social medias. Happy knitting!

Marta Petit Cossette 20.06.2018 - 01:41:

Hola. Quiero hacer eate modelo pero en crochet, puedo ocupar las mismas instrucciones para los aumentos ??? Seria en punto bajo y un gancho de 4 mm para el hilo del mismo número, gracias x la respuesta

DROPS Design 23.06.2018 kl. 20:27:

Hola Marta. Este modelo está trabajado con los hilos del grupo E (para trabajar con agujas/ ganchillo de 7-9 mm). Esto significa que no vas a tener la misma tensión, trabajando con el ganchillo de 4 mm ( vas a necesitar más puntos y más filas para alcanzar las medidas de la prenda). Por esto no te sirven estos cálculos para realizar el patrón.

Vivia 10.06.2018 - 00:22:

Når man begynder med perlestrik igen, så strikker man *ret vrang*, og så over det er det *vrang ret*. Men så bliver der to ret/vrang sammen. Hvad kan man gøre med det?

Mina Wielgus 25.05.2018 - 03:07:

Mi pregunta: Tengo que seguir aumentando cuatro puntos cada dos hileras hasta el final del poncho? La talla es para una niña de un año. Gracias

DROPS Design 30.05.2018 kl. 18:29:

Hi Mina, si exactamente - tienes que seguir aumentando cuatro puntos cada dos hileras hasta el final del poncho. Cordiales saludos!

Leonie Buchanan 16.05.2018 - 11:33:

Hi, I am in Australia & wondered what ply wool to use for pattern. Many thanks

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 12:42:

Dear Mrs Buchanan, you will find all relevant informations about DROPS Eskimo on its shadecard and you'll find here the list of DROPS stores shipping worldwide. Happy knitting!

Nancy Leahy 09.05.2018 - 22:56:

I am at the point in the pattern that I have 128 stitches. Where it says * At the same time. I’m unclear what to do next.

DROPS Design 10.05.2018 kl. 09:24:

Dear Mrs Leahy, you first work back and forth increasing 4 sts every RS row, at the same time when piece measures 6-7-8 (9-10) cm, join piece to work in the round continuing increasing every other round until all increases are done for the size. Happy knitting!

Anne-Katrin 05.05.2018 - 08:02:

Hallo! Ich versuche mich gerade am Poncho, und habe direkt zu Anfang eine Frage. Habe ich es richtig verstanden, dass am Anfang die Reihe wiefolgt aussieht: 3M rechts, dann Perlmuster, die letzten 3 M wieder rechts? Vielleicht wäre eine Überarbeitung der Anleitung sinnvoll, denn es gibt so viele Fragen... Ich konnte einfach nicht alle durchlesen, um die Antwort auf meine Frage zu finden... Vielen Dank jedenfalls für die Hilfe!

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Anne-Katrin, ja genau so wird es am Anfang gestrickt; 3 M Kraus rechts, Perlmuster bis 3 M bleiben und mit 3 M Kraus rechts beenden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Pamela 15.04.2018 - 04:53:

I am confused when I start in the round the we is on the outside instead of the inside of the round. How do I get it right.

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 09:30:

Dear Pamela, join work in the round at the end of a row from RS so that you will still work from the right side of the piece. Happy knitting!
