Just made this but am confused. Based on my counting (since the rows are not numbered like American patterns), I thought row1 of M.2 was supposed to be on the right side, but then the cabled ended up being on the wrong side. I just repeated the past row. Are you supposed to start R1 on the wrong side? I am starting another one and want to make sure this is done correctly. Also, can you do a provisional cast on and attach with the Kitchener stitch?

DROPS Design 06.01.2018 kl. 12:55:

Dear Sharon, when you start the piece and setting up the pattern, you start with the pattern M.1 which you knit on the right side, then start with M.2; its first row from the wrong side. That way you will do the cables in the RS. I hope this helps. Also, if you prefer kitchener stitch, you can start with provisional cast on. Happy Knitting!

I have reached M2 of the Drops 126-24 and find that the pattern is only for 27 stitches, while I have 30 stitches after M1? What happens to the three stitches (The 27 stitches includes the 3 garter stitches).

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 10:32:

Dear Mrs Goldman, after M1 you have a total of 30 sts and work these 30 sts as follows: 3 sts in garter st, 24 sts in M2 (1st row in M2 = WS = K4, P5, K1, P4, K1, P5, K4), 3 sts in garter st = 30 sts. Happy knitting!

Love the pattern and the headband!! Making for friends an family.

Heather 23.11.2015 - 17:48:

Can you please tell me the width measurement for this headband, thanks.

DROPS Design 24.11.2015 kl. 09:09:

Dear Heather, with the given tension, it will be a bit less than 12 cm (cables tighten work). Happy knitting!

Pat 01.09.2015 - 19:36:

I don't know how you got to the 30 stitches. I casted on 25 stitches and then work first two rows in garter stitch. How do I get to the 30 stitches? Thanks! Pat

DROPS Design 02.09.2015 kl. 09:41:

Dear Pat, after the first 2 rows in garter st, you work diagram M.1 (= 19 sts) with 3 sts in garter st in each side - M.1 = 1 row including 5 inc - see diagram and text to diagram. Happy knitting!

Lina Curry 28.01.2015 - 17:31:

Sorry but I am still confused do I work am three and back to M1 and again m tow after the 11 Rows please explain really appreciate it thank you

DROPS Design 29.01.2015 kl. 09:35:

Dear Mrs Curry, work first M1 (=19 sts) on next row from RS after the 2 rows in garter st - M1 is only 1 row - Then work M2 (1st row = from WS) and repeat M2 in height until piece measures 52-57 cm, then work M3 (= 1 row) and 2 rows garter st. (click here to read more about diagrams). Happy knitting!

Lina Curry 25.01.2015 - 18:14:

DROPS Design 26.01.2015 kl. 10:31:

Dear Mrs Curry, you first work M.1 (1 row), then over the 30 sts repeat M.2 in height until piece measures 52-57 cm (work until row 11 in M.2) then work M.3 (= 1 row = 25 sts). Happy knitting!

Bozena Karol 17.01.2015 - 22:38: www.raverly.com

Hi, I have a question: It seems that the description does not match the diagram. It says cast on 25sts but M1 shows only 19 sts? What happened to the remaining 6sts? thanks, Bozena

DROPS Design 19.01.2015 kl. 11:37:

Dear Mrs Bozena, you work M1 over the 19 sts with 3 garter sts each side (= 25 sts), when M1 has been worked, you have a total of 30 sts, continue with 3 garter sts each side. Happy knitting!

Dianne 08.12.2014 - 16:21:
