I would like to make this dress longer as I am an older individual. Where would you suggest I add rows in the pattern to make the dress longer? Should I add rows between decreases? Please advise.

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 08:46:

Dear Mrs Popplewell, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every individual request. You can compare a similar dress you have and like the shape to the measurement chart - maybe add rather extra length at the bottom before the decrease to keep the shape? your DROPS store may have also more tips & advices for you, just contact them even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, Je souhaite commander de la laine drops kild-silk pour confectionner le modèle Raspberry marmalade mais la couleur n°13, cerise, n'existe pas/plus. Est-ce que le rose vif qui le remplace peut faire l'affaire?ou dois-je préférer le N°17, rose foncé. Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 16:48:

Bonjour Mme Sandomingo, le coloris n°13 existe toujours, son nom a simplement été modifié. Votre magasin DROPS saura également toujours vous assister pour choisir les couleurs, même par mail ou téléphone, n'hésitez pas à le contacter. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, j'ai réalisé cette robe en rouge mais j'ai allongé les manches avec le motif du bas de la robe. Elle est magnifique !

Shiva 11.12.2013 - 22:45:

Sorry,i am confused with knitting in round.how can we make one round in k and one round in p ? In round we always knit k and automatically wrong side becomes purle.this means we should always knit in k . So how can we say k 1 round,p 1 round?

DROPS Design 12.12.2013 kl. 09:07:

Dear Shiva, when knitting in the round, K all rounds gives stocking st, and work alternately K1/P1 round gives garter st (see video below). Happy knitting!

Shiva 11.12.2013 - 13:27:

Can you please make more clear by what you mean with : AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armhole at beg of every row each side: 3 sts 0-0-0-1-1-2 times, 2 sts 1-1-2-2-3-3 times and 1 st 3-3-4-4-5-5 times and also what do you mean by : 4-4-5-5-5-6 times and finish with 0-3-1-4-4-2 K sts = 16-19-21-24-24-26 sts. Bind off all sts on next row.

DROPS Design 11.12.2013 kl. 14:12:

Dear Shiva, you continue on front piece in M.1 as before, and at the same time you shape armhole binding off each side every 2 rows: 3 sts 0-0-0-1-1-2 times, 2 sts 1-1-2-2-3-3 times and 1 st 3-3-4-4-5-5 times (see size). When piece measures 82-92 cm, work then on shoulder sts from RS: *K3,K2 tog*, repeat 4-6 times from *-* and finish row with K sts, and bind off on next row. Happy knitting!

Shiva 01.12.2013 - 21:11:

Hi, Can you put a tutorial video for the patern M1 for this model ?

DROPS Design 01.12.2013 kl. 21:30:

Dear Shiva, a tutorial video does exist for tha pattern, just take care because number of sts is not exactly the same. Happy knitting!

Leidsin väikese näpuka rubriigis varrukad. Kirjas on:"Kui töö kõrgus on 10cm, kahandada 1 silmus mõlemal pool ...... Seal peaks olema kasvatada 1 silmus mõlemal pool sest kuidas muidu silmade arvu suurendada.

Hoi. De hele jurk wordt met twee draden (1 draad Alpaca + 1 draad Kid Silk) gebreid. Dus ook M.1. Gr. Tine

Hallo, een vraagje, begrijp ik het goed dat het M1 gedeelte met twee draden gebreid wordt? Alvast bedankt!
