I do not know how to read charts. Would love to make this skirt. Where can I find the written pattern instead of the chart

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 09:39:

Dear Mrs Jayanti, we only have diagram to this pattern: start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round - see diagram key, eg on 1st row you will work: K1, YO, K2, P2, K2, P3, K2, P2, K2, YO. Happy knitting!

This pattern is very beautiful. I want to knit one for winter or fall, can I use another yarn instead of cotton? Like alpaca or merino?

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 08:11:

Dear Xiaoling, of course you can knit this skirt from another, similar weight yarn. See yarn group B for alternatives. However, instead of the pure alpaca yarns, mixtures would give you results with longer life. The Cotton Merino, the Lima or the Karisma would be perfect for this skirt. Happy Knitting!

Buongiorno Staff di Garn.Perdonate se Vi disturbo ancora,ma dall'ingrandimento della foto del motivo a ventagli risulterebbero 5 gettati,per un totale di 14 giri.Nella spiegazione del motivo invece risulterebbero 6 gettati per un totale di 16 giri.Sbaglio?Grazie del tempo che vorrete dedicarmi.Complimenti e buon fine settimana.Grazie,Rita.

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 14:00:

Buongiorno Mariarita. Dalla fotografia non è sempre evidente in modo chiaro, ma i gettati sono 6 per un totale di 16 giri, come indicato nel diagramma. Buon lavoro!

Mariarita 03.05.2018 - 15:25:

Buonasera Staff di Garn.Avrei una perplessità rispetto allo schema M.1.Nel ferro di andata,seguo la legenda,ma nel ferro di ritorno (rovescio)lavoro le maglie come si presentano (quindi un dir. lo lavoro al rov.,un rov. lo lavoro al dir.,un gettato lo lavoro a rovescio).Forse non so leggere lo schema,salto qualche passaggio,commetto qualche errore?Grazie per la cortese risposta.Buon lavoro.Rita

DROPS Design 03.05.2018 kl. 15:54:

Buongiorno Mariarita. Per lavorare avanti e indietro, è corretto come ha scritto. Dove trova i quadrati bianchi, il risultato è maglia rasata; dove trova le "x", il risultato è maglia rasata rovescio; i gettati, sul rovescio del lavoro, vengono lavorati a rovescio. Ci riscriva se ancora in difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Agnes Oblas 04.01.2018 - 22:49:

I see there have been a couple other knitters questioning why the first round ends with a half repeat; however there has not been any answer. So, I'll ask again, why does the first round not end with a yarn over, and then to restart the chart pattern with K and yarn over????

DROPS Design 05.01.2018 kl. 09:14:

Dear Mrs Oblas, the number of sts is divisible by 16 in each size, so that you will repeat the 16 sts in M.1 a total of 13 to 21 times depending on your size. Happy knitting!

Kern 06.05.2016 - 19:25:

This is a pretty skirt. It knits to a nice shape and does not cling to your legs. Thanks for the pattern.

Iviva 02.07.2015 - 20:11:

Merci pour votre réponse... je pense avoir les bonnes mesures , puisque la jupe me va très bien - je fais du 38 - mais peut-être aussi suis-je une mangeuse de laine ! SI, si , si , il parait que ça existe ! Quoiqu'il en soit , bravo à l'équipe Drops pour ce joli modèle et pour la rapidité des réponses !

Iviva 01.07.2015 - 20:31:

Je viens de terminer cette jupe en taille M. Le travail est un peu long mais ce modèle en vaut la peine ! La forme est très bien , pas de déception ...par contre , pour la taille M j'ai utilisé 9 pelotes entières . Il vaut mieux en commander 10 pour être totalement tranquille . Je la referai l'hiver prochain en karisma .

DROPS Design 02.07.2015 kl. 10:28:

Bonjour Iviva, aviez-vous bien le bon échantillon de 21 m x 28 rangs = 10 x 10 cm et bien conservé cette même tension également pendant la réalisation ?

Nancy 26.04.2014 - 21:32:

Bonjour, d'après la grille j'ajoute des jetée à chaque 2 rangs et je diminue seulement au 13ème rang. Cela ne fera pas trop de mailles?Il ne devrait pas y avoir des diminutions sur le même rang que les jetés? Merci de votre attention, Nancy

DROPS Design 28.04.2014 kl. 10:08:

Bonjour Nancy, le motif se fait ainsi, on augmente 2 m tous les 2 tours et on diminue aux tours 13 et 15. Bon tricot!

Berger Margit 04.11.2013 - 13:36:

Liebe Margit, dieses Modell wird nach unserer Anleitung bereits rund gestrickt, Sie müssen also nichts ändern. Das Muster wird von der Vorderseite dargestellt (jede Rd angebildet).
