DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 12:37:

Hello, Yes, you can knit them up in circular needle. Happy Knitting!

Alessandra 05.03.2014 - 11:27:

I have a question,,I saw on the website that this wool must be work with needles n.3,5. in the instruction you use needles n.6. Do I have to work 2 threads together?

DROPS Design 05.03.2014 kl. 12:02:

Dear Alessandra, this jumper is worked with 1 thread Kid-Silk on the basis of a gauge of 16 sts x 22 rows in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm. It is volontary worked loose. Happy knitting!

Monica 24.02.2014 - 16:01:

I love this a lot. I'm about to start making it but I'm not clear on joining the Part 1 with Part 2. How do you continue working up the sleeve after you join Part 1 with Part 2? Are the cuffs made of two layers? Thanks a lot.

DROPS Design 24.02.2014 kl. 16:14:

Dear Monica, bottom of sleeves are made with 2 layers, put then 2 parts together as stated, and work them together as shown in the video below. Happy knitting!

Maureen Donald 09.12.2012 - 06:28:

I am about to start part two of the sleeve and it says to cast on and work just like part one. It seems like casting on the same number of stitches as the wide bell of the cuff for the part near the elbow is too many stitches. Am I supposed to cast on that many stitches for part two?

DROPS Design 09.12.2012 kl. 22:09:

Dear Mrs Donald, you cast on the same nber of sts for both part of sleeve but dec another way for 2nd part and work only 23 cm. Happy knitting !

Gabrielle 12.09.2012 - 15:05:

Can you please explain the meaning for part 2 cuff pattern details: "dec....on every other and 3rd row alternately...18 times" Thank you :)

DROPS Design 12.11.2012 kl. 13:40:

Dear Gabrielle, it means you will work this way *knit 1 row, inc on next row, knit 2 rows, inc on next row* repeat from *-* a total of 9 times. Happy Knitting !

Miriam Goldby 13.07.2012 - 22:50:

I am going to knit this in the smallest size - do I really need 100g of the kid silk? It seems rather a lot. Could I get away with 75g?

DROPS Design 06.12.2012 kl. 09:16:

Dear Mrs Goldby, material requirements looks correct. Happy knitting !

Karine 08.04.2012 - 14:40:

Leider komplett verfilzt beim ersten Waschen.... wo war denn eine Warnung dagegen zu lesen ? habe keine gesehen, und nicht gewusst dass Kid Silk verfilzen kann! die ganze Arbeit umsonst !!.... Attention, le lavage machine transforme ce pull en petit morceau de feutrine. A savoir avant de tricoter...

DROPS Design 10.04.2012 kl. 09:22:

Die Etikette empfiehlt das Kid-Silk mit 30 Grad von Hand gewaschen wird.

DROPS Design 16.03.2010 - 10:41:

Hej Marisa, Lingarnet är underbart men har en annan stickfasthet. Titta istället på de tröjor vi har i lin :-)

Marisa 15.03.2010 - 15:37:

Är det möjligt att använda Lin för denna modell? Jag vill gärna prova Lin och älskar denna tröja!

Rossella 13.11.2009 - 09:37:
