Drops Eskimo kriebelt/prikt dat? Rekt dit vest heel erg door de ribbel of stopt het uitzakken?

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 12:46:

Dag Karin,

Eskimo is pure wolgaren en als je daar gevoelig voor bent, kan het inderdaad wat kriebelen. Hoewel Eskimo vrij dik garen is, is het ook heel luchtig, waardoor het uithangen mee zal vallen. Eskimo kan wel wat vilten en pillen na verloop van tijd.

Anna 09.02.2018 - 21:17:

Hello, I made a sample and I get 9 sts x 13 rows not 18 rows (= 10 x 10cm). What should I do now. I did it by 10mm needels. I don’t know how to change the pattern to do it correct. Please help!

DROPS Design 11.02.2018 kl. 09:42:

Dear Anna, sis you do the swatching with garter stitch? (with garter stitch you need significantly more rows than with stocking stitch). If your stitch count is fine (horizontally), but (vertically) you have less rows than necessary, I would follow the pattern but I would make sure that everywhere I knit enough rows, so the piece is the same length as given in the pattern. (Insert the extra rows eveny in between). Happy Knitting!

Guro Berge 20.01.2018 - 09:39:

Takk for kjekk oppskrift! Jeg ønsker å strikke jakken uten hette. Har dere noen tips?

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 10:00:

Hei Guro. Det best er å se hva du selv ønsker av kant når jakken er ferdig strikket. Du kan evnt strikke de 4 rillene som er beskrevet først i hetten og så felle av, evnt færre riller for en mindre kant. Evnt ingen kant i riller, men hekle en kant rundt. God Fornøyelse!

Yvon Huibers 19.09.2016 - 19:31:

Hoi, ik wil graag dit patroon met drops cloud breien, in fisherman's steek. Gaat dit? Hoeveel wol heb ik dan nodig? En hoe bereken ik hoeveel steken ik moet opzetten? Alvast bedankt! Groet Yvon

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 21:06:

Dat kan, u kunt alle garens uit categorie E gebruiken. Hoe u uitrekent hoeveel garen u nodig hebt, leest u hier: https://www.garnstudio.com/lesson.php?id=14&cid=7

Brett 06.07.2016 - 19:53:

Bedankt voor je reactie Ik heb het anders opgelost Ik heb er houtje touwtje knopen van 5 mm op bevestigd en heb geen last meer dat ze opengaan en het staat ook nog eens heel leuk ! Misschien ook een idee voor anderen

Brett 01.07.2016 - 13:41:

De knoopsgaten gaan iedere keer los met dragen Hoe kan ik dit netjes oplossen?

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 16:39:

Hoi Brett. Ik zou proberen de knoopsgaten kleiner te maken - eventueel een paar steken mazen om het gaatje kleiner te maken.

Carol Roozenboom 27.06.2016 - 20:30:

I can not get the sleeve to fit the body of sweater --- I have reread the instructions until I am totally frustrated --------------- Making a medium, have 26 stitches left and 20 rows to make it the same length, cannot get decreases to work!!!!! ---------- Did 6 rows, decreasing at beginning of each row and now sltumped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DROPS Design 28.06.2016 kl. 08:22:

Dear Mrs Roozenboom, in size M there are 36 sts when starting sleeve cap, cast off at the beg of every row on each side: 2 sts 1 time (= 4 sts dec), then 1 st 6 times (= 12 sts dec, 16 sts dec in total), then cast off 2 sts at the beg of each row on each side until sleeve measures 57 cm. Cast off then 3 sts at the beg of next 2 rows and cast off remaining sts. Sleeve should measure approx. 58 cm. Happy knitting!

KUCA 18.03.2016 - 16:28:

DROPS Design 21.03.2016 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Mme Kuca, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande individuelle. Vous pouvez vous inspirer d'un modèle similaire en tension/mesures, votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider pour toute assistance personnalisée complémentaire. Bon tricot!

Inge 26.02.2016 - 12:02:

Ik wil het garen DROPS Eskimo vervangen door DROPS Air gecombineerd met DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk? De looplengte van Air is echter 150m (Silk 140m) terwijl Eskimo 50m is, klopt het dan dat ik maar 1/3 van het gewicht in Eskimo nodig heb?

DROPS Design 26.02.2016 kl. 14:41:

Hoi Inge. Ja, Zowel Air als de Brushed lopen langer per 50 gr, je kan hier ook lezen hoe je een alternatief garen berekent. Succes en veel breiplezier.
