Kun je dit patroon met elk soort garen maken? Wil graag van alpaca& zijde. Een wat dunnere.

Dag Anja,

Ja hoor, DROPS BabyAlpacaSilk is hier heel geschikt voor.

Guten Morgen, Ich möchte diese sehr schöne Mütze gerne in Baby Merino von Drops stricken. Wie muss ich Maschenzahl etc. berechnen? Vielen Dank! Sigrid Agathos

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Frau Agathos, gerne können Sie hier Baby Merino anstatt Alpaca stricken, und zwar mit 2 Fäden Baby Merino (= 2 Fäden Alpaca) - hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

In de beschrijving voor de oorflap staat dat je in totaal 7x moet vermeerderen in 3de naald = 21 naalden en 5 cm hoog is. Ik kom aan 7 cm. Proeflapje klopte . Wat nu ?

DROPS Design 24.09.2017 kl. 10:29:

Hallo Borghs, 2 cm is in dit geval wel een groot verschil. De stekenverhouding die in het patroon staat gaat over tricotsteek, terwijl de oorflap in ribbelsteek gebreid wordt. Het is denk ik het beste om op eigen inzicht de oorflap op maat te maken. Aan de hand van de oorflap die je nu gemaakt hebt, kun je uitrekenen hoe vaak je moet meerderen om hem goed te krijgen. (Waarschijnlijk om de 2 naalden meerderen ipv om de 3.)

Mary 25.06.2017 - 22:48:

Please can you confirm what size needles I should use. The yarn suggests 2.5 - 3.5mm but the pattern says 5mm? Thanks

DROPS Design 26.06.2017 kl. 02:42:

Dear Mary, thank you for your question. The piece knitted with two color of the Alpaca yarn held together, and that is the reason for the thicker needles used. So, you should use the needles suggested by the pattern, However, since every person knits slightly differently, you should also always do a gauge swatch, and wash it, and check the stitch cound, and adjust the neeedle sice accordigly, if necessary. I hope this helped. Happy Knitting!

Bei dem Setzen der Markierungsfäden, fang ich da mit dem 1. Markierungsfaden in Masche 1 an oder setz ich den ersten bei Masche 13? Danke und Gruss, Sibel

My pattern states for the crochet border : 1dc, 2 ch, slip 1 cm - on line pattern is 1 sc - I guess the single crochet is correct?

DROPS Design 15.09.2015 kl. 10:04:

Dear Mrs Odonnell, crochet terminology is different in UK-English and US-English, so that 1 sc (= US-terminology) is 1 dc (= Uk-terminology), see also here. Happy knitting!
