This pattern is gorgeous. Does it come as crochet as I can not knit.

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 01:15:

Dear Nicola, this blanket utilizes special kint stitches, to makeup different lace patterns, so the pattern cannot be transferred to crochet. However we do have a lot of pattern fr crocheted blankets, if you just search the database a little bit. Happy Crafting!

Marie-france 28.04.2018 - 18:10: https://www.garnstud ...

Bonjour je voudrais ajouter 2 autres bandes en largeur, combien de balle de laine de chaque couleur faut-il que je rachète. J’ai déjà acheter ce qu’il faut pour la couverture?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Marie-France, vous pouvez calculer la quantité nécessaire pour 1 bande et la multiplier par 2 pour savoir la quantité supplémentaire nécessaire. Pensez à bien arrondir car il vous faudra plus de laine également pour la bordure. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous renseigner, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Helga Eikerling 27.04.2018 - 11:32:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, mit der Anleitung Drops 124-20 habe ich ein Problem. Muster M1 finde ich dort 2x. Ein M1 hat Zu- und abnahmen und steht gleich am Amfang der Anleitung und das zweite M1 hat Zöpfe. Nun kann ich nur ein M1 Muster einordnen. Wo kommt das zweite M1 Muster hin. Für Ihre Bemühungen bedanke ich mich im Voraus Mit freunlichen Grüssen Helga Eikerling

DROPS Design 27.04.2018 kl. 12:28:

Liebe Frau Eikerling, M.1 wird wie im "M1 wie folgt" gestrickt: dh zuerst 5 Re über alle M, dann 1 Reihe mit Zunahmen, dann diagram M.1 stricken (1. Reihe = Rückreihe), dann 1 Reihe mit Abnahme und 3 R rechts stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Greveldinger 23.04.2018 - 13:29:

Bonjour, ma sœur m'a offert cette superbe couverture tricotée avec les fils recommandés. J'aimerai savoir si je peux la laver en machine sur le cycle froid. Merci.

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 13:56:

Bonjour Mme Greveldinger, lavez-là en suivant les indications sur le nuancier de DROPS Alpaca - vous trouverez ici quelques généralités à propos de l'entretien.

Marie 16.04.2018 - 23:21: https://www.garnstud ...

Bonjour, je suis vraiment mêlé, comment on fini la première bande après avoir fait M.1 et comment commence t'on la deuxième bande...est-ce qu'on tricote 5 rangs endroit et faire M.2??

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Marie, Pour la 1ère bande: après M.1, tricotez 4 rangs endroit sur toutes les mailles puis le diagramme M.2 en commençant sur l'endroit. Quand le diagramme est terminé, tricotez 4 rangs endroit sur toutes les mailles. Tricotez ensuite 4 rangs endroit puis M.3 et terminez par 4 rangs endroit. Tricotez ensuite 4 rangs endroit, M.4 et terminez par 4 rangs endroit. Tricotez ensuite M.1 (= 5 rangs endroit, augmentations, M.1 et 3 rangs endroit). N'oubliez pas de changer de couleur entre chaque carré. Bon tricot!

Marie-France 13.04.2018 - 12:08: https://www.garnstud ...

Bonjour, comment fait-on 2 mailles endroit dans chacune des 3 mailles suivante.

DROPS Design 13.04.2018 kl. 13:32:

Bonjour Marie-France, on tricote 2 fois chacune des 3 mailles suivantes, alternativement dans le brin avant et le brin arrière. Cf vidéo ci-dessous. Bon tricot!

Marita 01.01.2018 - 13:53:

Hei, jeg får ikke Rute M4 rad 9 til å stemme. Er det noe feil i mønsteret? Resten går jo opp 😊

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 07:59:

Hei Marita. Hva er det du mener ikke går opp? På rad 9 strikker du 6 ganger "2 rett sammen" ELLER "ta 1 maske løs av pinnen som om den skulle strikkes rett, 1 rett, løft den løse masken over" = 6 felt masker, MEN du gjør også 6 kast = 6 nye masker, slik at maskeantallet på A.4(= skal bli det samme. mvh DROPS design

Chechel 13.11.2017 - 15:56:

Bonjour Merci pour votre réponse rapide. C'est plutôt au rang 43 du coup que je rencontre une difficulté (47 représentait les 4 rangs endroit + les rangs du diagramme) Il me reste les 2 mailles en fin de rang... Merci beaucoup Chechel

DROPS Design 14.11.2017 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Mme Chechel, sur ce rang, vous diminuez 8 fois 1 m, et vous devez bien avoir 8 jetés pour compenser ces diminutions, ainsi votre nombre de mailles devrait rester le même qu'avant. Bon tricot!

Chechel 12.11.2017 - 15:22:

Bonjour Ce modèle est vraiment superbe et agréable à tricoter. J'ai un soucis au motif M2. Au rang 47, même en respectant le diagramme, je me retrouve avec 2 mailles en trop... Je ne vois pas où j'ai une erreur (j'ai bien 37 mailles sur mon aiguille). Merci beaucoup pour votre aide. Chechel

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 09:58:

Bonjour Chechel, au rang 47, on termine le coeur (sauf erreur de ma part) et on tricote: 7 m end, (1 jeté, gliss. 1 m, 1 m end, passer la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté), 9 m end, on répète encore 1 fois de (à), et on termine par 7 m end soit: 7 + 2+2 + 9 + 2+2 + 7 = 31 + (2x3 m point mousse) = 37 m. Bon tricot!
