The question has been accidentally repeated. Thanks for the reply, will look into the pattern and sort out. Thank you

Daisy 03.09.2019 - 19:03:

Hi, I didn't knit the hood separately. I picked up the stitches for the hood from the neckline as per the pattern instructions and is a one piece hood. As you replied to my question dated 23-5-19 I folded the 6 garter stitches backwards and stitched, however the hood is not coming up properly, it is almost flat. I tried with a dummy doll's head, and the hood is not coming up as a hood as shown in the picture. Please help . Thank you

DROPS Design 04.09.2019 kl. 08:54:

Dear Daisy, it's somewhat tricky to give you the right answer, please show your store your project (even per mail), they should be able to assist you more easily. Happy knitting!

DROPS Design 03.09.2019 kl. 14:53:

Dear Daisy, to get the folded edge around the hood as on the picture, you have to cast on 6 extra stitches on each side of the stitches picked up along neck, then work in pattern M.1 with 12 stitches in garter stitch in each side. When hood is done and sewn together, the edge is folded on the RS (half of the edge in garter stitch) ; If you worked like this, you might rather show your piece to your store (even sending them a picture per mail) so that they can check together with you. Happy knitting!

Merci pour vos explications j en suis au dos vos explications sont très nettes merci encore

Mona 20.08.2019 - 20:05:

Skal det være 5 omg med glattstrikk mellom flettene (som går over 12 m) i midten ? .Og bare 3omg. på di andre flettene.

DROPS Design 09.09.2019 kl. 10:13:

Hei Mona. Kan ikke se at det skal være 5. omganger glattstrikk mellom flettene. Når du begynner med flettene / diagrammene, strikker du M.1 over de første 5-8-12 (14-18) maskene, deretter strikker du M.2 (= 32 masker), 14 m vrang, M.3 (= 32 masker), M.1 over de neste 5-8-12 (14-18) maskene (avpass slik at M.1 slutter med 1 vrang i siden før kantmasken slik at mønsteret stemmer mot bakstk) og avslutt med 1 kantmaske. Mellom alle flettene er det 4 vrangmasker, både mellom de enkle flettene og de doble, men mellom diagram M.2 og M.3 strikkes det 14 vrangmasker. God Fornøyelse!

Mairien Jacqueline 19.08.2019 - 09:59:

Je ne vois pas ou situés dans le nid d'ange le passage des sangles merci j'attends votre réponse Jacqueline

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 11:50:

Bonjour Mme Mairien, pour les sangles, il vous faudra rabattre les 10 mailles centrales à 16-33 cm (cf taille et OUVERTURES POUR LE PASSAGE DE LA SANGLE DE SÉCURITÉ DU SIÈGE AUTO) du dos et du devant, au rang suivant, montez 10 mailles au-dessus des mailles rabattues (ajustez le devant pour que les 10 m soient rabattues au même rang que pour le dos) et continuez comme avant. Bon tricot!

Zezette 18.08.2019 - 07:08:

Je voudrai realiser ce nid d ange mais comment tricoter les mailles de tous les rangs pairs ? Merck

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 09:58:

Bonjour Zezette, les diagrammes montrent tous les rangs, ceux tricotés sur l'endroit ainsi que ceux sur l'envers - cf légende = les croix sont des mailles en jersey envers et les cases blanches en jersey endroit. Bon tricot!

Céline 17.08.2019 - 10:12:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas bien les diagrammes M2 et M3 au niveau des deux lignes du haut car il n'y a que les 12 mailles du milieu de représenter. Que tricote-t-on au-dessus des autres mailles ? Merci pour votre réponse car je suis bloquée.

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 09:23:

Bonjour Céline, les torsades de M.2 et M.3 se tricotent sur un nombre de rangs différent en hauteur, quand les 4 premiers rangs sont tricotés sur la torsade au début et à la fin de M.2/M.3, reprenez cette partie du diagramme au 1er rang; et tricotez encore 2 rangs sur la torsade du milieu = les torsades de 4 m se tricotent sur 4 rangs et celles de 6 m (= 12 m au total) se tricotent sur 6 rangs. Bon tricot!

Rita Ashar 13.08.2019 - 02:51:

Love this pattern and am about to start with the increase for sleeves. I am confused whether the increase needs to be done only at the end of each row or at both ends of each row. As in 4 sets 2 times means 4 sets at the end of first row and 4 sets at the end of next 2 rows?

DROPS Design 13.08.2019 kl. 08:22:

Dear Mrs Ashar, on back piece you will cast on the new stitches for sleeves on each side, ie at the end of each row, so that there are the same number of stitches cast on for each sleeve. On front piece, you will increase the stitches for sleeve only one one side since you work both front piece separately at this point. Happy knitting!

Marisa 07.08.2019 - 06:55:

Guten Tag,ist es empfehlenswert ein Loch für den Sicherheitsgürtel zu machen? Sieht es dann noch schön aus?

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 12:32:

Liebe Marisa, wenn Sie kein Loch für den Sicherheitsgurt stricken, dann kann den Schalfsack nicht in einem Babyautositz - wenn der Schlafsack nicht im Auto benutzt wird, dann brauchen Sie nicht den Loch zu stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
