Ik heb gen aparte blokken gebreid maar het hele dekentje in zijn geheel opgezet op een Lange rondbreinaald. Erg mooi geworden.

Jone 22.11.2018 - 22:03:

Was bedeutet das Sternchen in der Anleitung? 'Nach ca. 11-12-13 (14-15) cm die nächste R. wie folgt stricken: * 3 li., 2 li. zusammen *, von *-* wiederholen bis noch 0-4-3 (2-0) M. übrig sind, diese li. stricken = 80-84-87 (90-96) M. '

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 10:03:

Liebe Frau Jone, das Teil zwischen beide Sternchen sollen Sie wiederholen, dh Sie wiederholen (3 li, 2 li zs) über die nächsten Maschen bis noch 0-4-3 (2-0) M.übrig sind. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sylvia Devenish 14.08.2018 - 13:07:

Hej Jag vill gärna sticka babyfilten men undrar om jag kan byta garn till DROPS SKY istället för DROPS MERINO EXTRA FINE?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 13:50:

Hej Sylvia, Ja det går fint, klicka på "Testa vår konverterare" välj DROPS Merino Extra Fine - 450 g - 1 tråd så får du garnåtgången i DROPS Sky - Lycka till !

Louise 04.04.2018 - 22:23:

Bonjour, j\'aimerais voir une photo du bonnet qui montre le diagramme M2, car, sur la seule photo qu\'on nous montre, c\'est le M1 qu\'on voit. Merci

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour Louise, nous n'avons pas d'autres photos pour ce bonnet. M.2 est une simple torsade sur 6 mailles (3ème symbole) et M.3 des torsades un peu plus complexes que l'on tricote sur 20 m (on ne tricote pas M.1 pour le bonnet, seulement pour la couverture). Bon tricot!

Louise 03.04.2018 - 21:46:

Bonjour, j'ai réalisé la couverture, sans trop de difficulté. Par contre, pour le bonnet, après avoir tricoté les côtes, sur l'aiguille circulaire, rien ne va plus. Je n'arrive pas à insérer les diagrammes 1 et 2 comme dans les explications!

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 09:05:

Bonjour Louise, après les côtes, vous devez diminuer 4-8 m (cf taille), il vous reste 100-104-108 (112-120) m que vous tricotez ainsi: 3-3-3 (4-5) m env, M2 (= 6 m), 6-7-8 (8-9) m env, M3 (= 20 m), 6-7-8 (8-9) m env, M2 (= 6 m), 6-6-6 (8-10) m env, M2 (= 6 m), 6-7-8 (8-9) m env, M3 (= 20 m), 6-7-8 (8-9) m env, M2 (= 6 m), 3-3-3 (4-5) m env. Bon tricot!

Sorry I meant the key is wrong, not the diagram. The slip 3 onto the cable needle place at the front of work and the p1, then knit 3 from cable needle and the place next stitch on the cable needle and hold at the back of work then k3 and then p1from cable needle are the wrong way round on the key.

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 14:12:

Dear Mrs Hearn, diagram is correct as well as keys. Start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side and read towards the left from RS (and from the left towards the right from WS). Happy knitting!

Linda Hearn 02.01.2018 - 14:25:

Do you have an amendment for the above pattern as the to the diagram appears wrong.

DROPS Design 03.01.2018 kl. 13:49:

Dear Mrs Hearn, Diagrams are correct and this pattern has been already made several times successfully. Start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side and read from the right to the left from RS and from the left to the right from WS. Happy knitting!

Lotte 15.02.2017 - 20:31:

Hei. Jeg lurer på om størrelsen på luen er 40/42 cm for å kunne passe til hodemål 40/42cm? Eller er omkretsen på lua mindre, siden den har litt 'strikk' i seg? Jeg strikker med et annet garn, og ønsker å sjekke at størrelsen blir rett. Nå har jeg en lue på cirka 40 cm i omkrets, men den virker veldig stor for en baby... På forhånd takk for svar!

DROPS Design 22.02.2017 kl. 12:34:

Hej Lotte. Den er mindre, for ellers kan den ikke sidde ordentligt. Du skal strikke en pröve og sörge for din strikkefasthed til opskriften passer: 21 m x 28 p glstrikk på 10 x 10 cm. Stemmer din strikkefasthed, saa bliver huen ogsaa i orden.

Annette Furuberg 06.02.2017 - 09:52:

Hva betyr merkene øverst i oppskriften? Strikk og hekle er greit, men diamant og klokke?

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 12:40:

Hej Annette. Diamanten er de opskrifter der er valgt til cover (altsaa paa vores forside) og klokken er nye opskrifter, den staar paa opskriften de förste 7 dage den er paa siden.

Alieke 15.01.2017 - 20:08:

Ik las hier eerder dat het beschreven patroon van dat van een ander mutsje is. Dit klopt inderdaad, het is namelijk voor het mutsje van drops baby 17-5. Nou is mijn vraag waar is het patroon van dit mutsje? Hoeveel kabels zitten er bijv. in het mutsje?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 12:49:

Hoi Alieke. Het is hetzelfde mutsje, die gewoon in beide patronen voorkomt. Ze zijn niet verschillend.
