Bonjour , le modèle présenté peut être tricoter avec la laine drops eskimo ? MERCI DE VOTRE REPONSE

Bonjour Aurélie, ce modèle peut se tricoter avec 1 autre fil du groupe A et 1 autre fil du groupe C (type Brushed Alpaca Silk), mais pas avec un fil du groupe E comme Eskimo. Vous trouverez plus d'infos sur les alternatives ici. Bon tricot!

Ich habe eine Frage zur Anleitung von Nr. 126-35:was heisst 2 R "so" stricken ( wieder Muster wiederholen oder wie die Maschen vom Nadelfallen). Bitte beantworten Sie mir die Frage bald, sonst bleibe ich mit der Arbeit stehen!!! Vielen Dank!!!

DROPS Design 19.11.2013 kl. 09:17:

Liebe Brygida, 2 R. so stricken bedeutet 2 R so stricken, wie es gerade beschrieben wurde.

Steck Karin 11.02.2013 - 21:02:

Ich habe eine Frage zur Anleitung von Nr. 126-35. Ist die Jacke mit Doppelfaden gestrickt (von jeder Wollart)? Bitte teilen Sie mir dies bald mit, dass ich anfangen kann zu stricken!! Danke!

DROPS Design 12.02.2013 kl. 11:47:

Guten Tag Frau Steck, die Jacke wird mit 1 Faden jeder Qualität gestrickt (siehe 1. Zeile in der Anleitung).

Joyce 16.01.2013 - 13:10:

Hoi, Kijk misschien niet goed, maar ik kan telpatroon m2 nergens terugvinden. Als ik naar de foto kijk, lijkt het of het boord ook uit ruches bestaat, maar dit vind ik niet in de beschrijving. Tevens is me niet duidelijk uit de tekening hoe breed voorpand en achterpand samen zijn. Dit om te bepalen welke maat nodig is.

DROPS Design 16.01.2013 kl. 16:05:

Telpatroon M.2 staat onderaan het patroon net onder M.1. Je maakt ruches langs de onderkant/boord door de minderingen te maken in het patroon. Wij geven alleen de afmeting weer voor het achterpand omdat de voorpanden los moeten hangen. Maar gebruik de stekenverhouding om de breedte te berekenen.

If you need support, we kindly ask you to go to the shop where you bought the yarn. When you buy original Garnstudio yarn, you can be sure that you have bought yarn from a shop that will give you all the help you may need also by phone or email.

Lisa 30.08.2011 - 03:06:

Ruffle edge instructions are vague. Drops patterns tend toward vagueness anyway. Will have to do it my way since I can't write a long enough message to clarify...

Lisa 30.08.2011 - 03:04:

I would LOVE to be able to ask you a question about the vagueness of this pattern but apparently even keeping it to a minimum is too long for your system. FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!

Karla Maia 09.09.2010 - 21:46:

Vocês estão de parabens. A facilidade de obter receitas é maravilhosa.
