I have tried washing the red eskimo yarn and it bleeds color. how can one avoid that?

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 02:04:

Dear Tatiana, first of all you should always keep what the handling care notes say on the ball band. If it really bleeds, soaking in water and vinegar solution often helps.

Skal man lægge noget i sokken ved filtningsvasken, så sokken ikke filter sammen?

DROPS Design 24.10.2016 kl. 10:45:

Hej Bettina. Du kan evt montere en lille plastikpose paa indersiden - saet fast med sikkerhedsnaale, saa er du sikker den ikke filter sammen.

Når denne skal vaskes og toves kommer da det kvite garnet til å bli farga av det røde?

DROPS Design 27.11.2015 kl. 15:07:

Hej Turid, Hvis du oplever at den røde indeholder overskudsfarve, så kan du skylle den inden du tover den, og så sørger du for at skylle til skyllevandet er helt klar! Når du har tovet den skal den ud af vaskemaskinen med det samme, så skal det ikke være noget problem med hverken den røde eller den hvide. God fornøjelse!

Jeg strikkede denne julestrømpe for et par år siden - derfra har jeg noget Drops Puddel nr. 01 til overs. Nu strikker en ny og mangler 1 bundt Drops Puddel nr 01 - hvad gør jeg - nu da Drops Puddel ikke mere kan købes???. mvh Minni

DROPS Design 07.10.2015 kl. 15:52:

Hej Minni. Du kan erstatte med dobbelt traad Alpaca Bouclé. Se her

Pia Elgaard 02.09.2015 - 17:17:

Der må være noget galt med enten antallet af masker der tages ud eller det samlede antal masker. Hvis man lægger 3+2+3 sammen bliver det 8 men fra 52 til 68 masker er der 16 til forskel. Betyder det at den beskrevne skal gentages? Og igen når der skal tages ind. Der hedder det 4+4+3. Det giver 11 masker men 68 minus 46 giver 22. Hvordan gør jeg det?

DROPS Design 03.09.2015 kl. 19:12:

Hej Pia, jo men du tager de 8 m ud i hver side af arbejdet og så tager du ind i hver side af arbejdet, så stemmer antal masker. God fornöjelse!

Ingeborg 22.11.2012 - 22:34:

For meg ble det for lite garn på selve strømpen altså eskimo. Brukte nærmere 200g enn 150 som oppskriften foreslår.

Ingrid 18.10.2012 - 14:29:

Hi, any chance of there being a pattern alternative for a slightly larger stocking? I can't read the Skandinavian questions, in case that question was asked before! Kind regards, Ingrid

Pietsch, Melanie 21.09.2012 - 15:03:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, ich hätte gerne gewußt, ob es sich bei den Nadeln um Rundstricknadeln oder normale Stricknadeln handelt. Vielen Dank für Ihre Bemühungen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Melanie Pietsch

DROPS Design 24.09.2012 kl. 16:26:

Liebe Melanie, wenn nichts Besonderes angegeben ist, können beide Nadelarten benutzt werden. Viel Spass beim Stricken!

Christina 18.09.2012 - 14:46:

Når der står at der skal tages 3 masker ud i slutningen af hver pind, i begge sider, er det så over 2 pinde, altså 2 pinde hvor der tages ud i slutningen? Eller skal der tages ud både i beg og slut?

DROPS Design 19.09.2012 kl. 10:31:

Du skal tage ud i slutningen af hver pind. Dvs, kun til slut og ikke i begyndelsen. Du strikker één pind, tager ud til slut, strikker naeste pind, tager ud til slut = taget ud i begge sider.

DROPS Design 07.10.2010 - 09:13:

På den ene siden strikker du opp masker og på den andere siden blir den syd fast.
