Hello- I would like to know if it’s possible to make the Home on the Range shawl using stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch (excluding the cable section in the middle). In the photo, it looks like the two sections to the left or the right of the cable could be done in either garter or stockinette (stockinette would have a smoother/ flatter appearance)? I have made swatches in both stitches and both are the correct gauge, so wanted to ask for your professional opinion. Thank you!

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:36:

Dear Barbara, gauge in stocking stitch is not the same as in garter stitch, you need 12 rows in garter stitch to get 10 cm, you will need less row for 10 cm working with garter stitch. The increases have been calculated/designed for garter stitch, you might have to adjust some more things. Do not hessitate to contact your DROPS store, they might help you, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Holli 04.12.2017 - 04:38:

I’m confused because this pattern neither specifies if it is knitted in the round or flat and then sewn up a side? I’d love to cast on now. Pleas and thank you.

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 10:43:

Dear Holli, this shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle from top down. There will be no seam, just work as explained increasing as stated in the pattern to get a large triangle (= shawl). Happy knitting!

Bonsoir, Vous indiquez au début du patron que le jeté tricoté doit être torse.Est-ce que tous les jetés doivent être tricotés torse afin d’eviter un trou? Merci, Hélène

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 12:08:

Bonjour Hélène, tout à fait, les augmentations se font avec un jeté qui se tricote torse au rang suivant. Bon tricot!

Camill 21.05.2017 - 19:12:

Hvis jeg vælger at strikke dette med DROPS Eskimo i stedet, hvor mange nøgler skal jeg så bruge af det?

DROPS Design 23.05.2017 kl. 07:39:

Hei Camill. Her er et eksempel på hvordan man regner garnforbruget ud i et andet garn men fra samme garngruppe. I opskriften står der fex 300g af en garnkvalitet X: GARN X: 50g = 170 m: 300g = 6 nøgler x 170 m = 1020 m af garn X. Du vil bruge GARN Y: hvor 50g = 150 m. Du tager da antal m fra X = 1020 m og deler med 150 m (fra Y) = 6,8 nøgler. Du behøver da 7 nøgler = 350g i Y til at erstatte 300g i X.

Claire 13.12.2016 - 07:05:

Bonjour, je voulais savoir s'il n'y avait pas une erreur en de traduction sur la ligne du diagramme ou nous procédons à la torsade. En effet on nous demande de les 3 mailles mises de côté et les 3 autres à l'endroit alors que nous sommes sur un rang ou elles devraient être tricotéesur à l'envers... sur la version canadienne ce n'est pas mus endroit où envers et effectivement le résultat n'est pas le même. Merci

DROPS Design 13.12.2016 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Claire, le 1er rang du diagramme M.1 se tricote sur l'envers (cf "POINT FANTAISIE"), ainsi, les torsades se feront bien sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Claire 08.12.2016 - 21:56:

Bonsoir, je pense qu'il y a une erreur dans les explications de la torsade. Pour moi, il faudrait faire 3 mailles mais pas en endroit obligatoirement et toujours sur le même rythme d'alternance que sur le diagramme..

DROPS Design 09.12.2016 kl. 09:46:

Bonjour Claire, le diagramme est tout à fait correct, chacune des 2 torsades se tricote sur 6 m, et on a 1 m env entre chaque. Bon tricot!

Justo Maria 29.10.2016 - 15:24:

Bonjour combien de pelotes faut-il pour faire ce chale je voudrai la meme couleur et epaisseur de laine merci

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour Mme Justo, vous trouverez les quantités requises pour chacun de nos modèles sous l'onglet "Fournitures", soit ici 900 g / 100 g une pelote Polaris = 9 pelotes. Bon tricot!

Guillon 03.10.2016 - 22:09:

Je ne comprend pas les explications pouvez vous me détaillée tout les rangs merci

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 09:19:

Bonjour Mme Guillon, vous pouvez volontiers indiquer ici ce que vous ne comprenez pas, ou bien demander une assistance personnalisée à votre magasin DROPS ou rejoindre le forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Nicole Sawizki 13.09.2016 - 01:24:

So mein Tuch ist fertig :) und obwohl ich Drops Polaris genommen habe, und die Maschenprobe gepasst hat habe ich 10 Knäul Wolle gebraucht. Zum Glück bestell ich immer eins auf Reserve.

Melanie 01.09.2016 - 17:24:

Thankyou! I've ordered my yarn and can't wait to get knitting! 😊
