I’m attempting to make the booties, but I’m having a hard time following the pattern. Are there pictures of them before sewing together?

DROPS Design 23.08.2019 kl. 09:13:

Dear Jeanetta, slippers are worked sideways from toe to heel. You first work stocking st, then increase in the middle of piece and finish both sides separately casting on new stitches worked in garter stitch (leg) - the remaining sts will be worked in stocking stitch (foot) as before. And work short rows as explained. Happy knitting!

Gauvert 11.08.2019 - 13:40:

Il faudrait revoir vos estimations de laine. Pour le modele 2-3 ans, je n'ai pas eu assez des 300 grammes pour finir !!!!! J'ai dû recommander une pelote qui m'a coûté moins cher que le port !!!!!!

DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Mme Gauvert, votre tension est-elle restée la même que celle de l'échantillon tout du long? Ce modèle est très populaire et nous n'avons eu à ce jour aucun retour à propos des quantités, je suis désolée. Bon tricot!

Drica 21.07.2019 - 02:53:

Olá. Depois de ler algumas vezes para perceber bem, aventurei-me e fiz num resto de fio que aqui tinha e treinar. Mas como o aumento com laçada estava a deixar buracos muito grandes (mesmo seguindo a dica para os evitar), fiz outro tipo de aumento: ponto meia no mesmo ponto 2 vezes, ou seja, pela perninha da frente e pela perninha de trás. Agora é só fazer um poncho mesmo no fio que quero. Não queria usar lã, que outro fio sugerem?

Blanca 17.07.2019 - 21:17:

Este parrafo no tiene ningun sntido: AL MISMO TIEMPO, cuando la pieza mida 6-7-8 (9-10) cm, continuar en redondo en pt jersey – tejer los 6 pts del centro del frente de revés, en la primera vta, y, después, tejerlos en pt jersey. Me lo pueden explicar?

DROPS Design 25.07.2019 kl. 19:49:

Hola Blanca. La capucha y la primera parte del cuerpo se trabajan de ida y vuelta con 3 puntos en punto musgo (= cenefa) a cada lado. A partir de los 6-7-8 (9-10) cm (medidos desde el marcapuntos = desde el inicio del cuerpo) se trabaja en redondo y en la primera vuelta los 6 puntos de la cenefa ( = los 3 a cada lado) se trabajan de revés. Después toda la prenda se trabaja en punto jersey.

Lynn Beall 10.07.2019 - 06:00:

I do not understand the marker row. I have decreased from 41 st. to 38 st. on decrease row. The number of stitches between the increases on the marker row adds up to more than 38 stitches. What am I not understanding? Thanks for your help!

DROPS Design 10.07.2019 kl. 09:25:

Dear Mrs Beall, count the stitches from the beg of row: first marker after 4 stitches, 2nd marker after a total of 15 sts (from beg of row), 3rd marker after a total of 23 sts (from beg of row) and the last marker after a total of 34 sts (from beg of row). Happy knintting!

Rina 08.07.2019 - 16:32:

Making this pattern for the second time. Love it! So cute!

Kandi 05.07.2019 - 22:03:

I agree with Sherry, the instructions are not clear, got it through the hood and two knit rows, then the rest is very hard to understand! Is the cape part sewed up in back? Grrrrrr, so frustrated! Such a cute pattern,I give up!

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 11:25:

Dear Kandi, when the hood has been worked, you will now work the "body" of the poncho, after the decreases insert markers (for increases) and work now first back and forth until the vent mid front is done and continue then in the round after the vent, increasing at the markers every other round/row. Happy knitting!

Yassif 01.05.2019 - 13:45:

S'il vous plait es ce que : "tricoter les 6 m du milieu devant à l'envers au 1er tour, puis les tricoter en jersey" veux dire qu'on tricote le premier tour à l'endroit sauf les 6 mailles au milieu (à l'envers) puis à partir du 2eme rang on tricote TOUTES les mailles à l'endroit (puisque on tricote jersey en rond). merci

DROPS Design 01.05.2019 kl. 17:31:

Bonjour Yassif. Oui, vous avez bien compris. Quand vous commencez à tricoter en rond, sur le 1er tour vous tricotez à l’endroit, sauf les 6 mailles au milieu (à l’envers) et puis, à partir du 2eme tour, vous tricotez toutes les mailles à l ‘endroit. Bon tricot !

Cindy Blanchard 22.04.2019 - 01:33:

I love drops very much so. Please explain how to insert the chain in the hoody. Is it every other stitch or so? Tussen tak

DROPS Design 22.04.2019 kl. 13:16:

Dear Cindy, yes, you insert it between stitches, after every 2-3 sts. Happy crafting!

Aneta 20.04.2019 - 14:27:
