Hello. If working this pattern with two stands of Kidmohair, should I buy 700g of the material? Many thanks for your advise. Regards

How many balls of wool to make the smallest size?

DROPS Design 29.07.2017 kl. 17:53:

Dear Melanie, the original sweater in the picture was made from DROPS Verdi yarn, which came in big, 350 gramm balls, so, if you can get that somehow, one ball would be enough. However, the yarn is discontinued, and not produced anymore. You can substitute it with DROPS Melody yarn, from which you would need about 9-10 balls. Or you can use Brushed Alpaca Silk yarn held together with Delight, to get the stripey efefct of some of the Verdi colors. You can see the example for that here. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Vaillant Isabelle 27.12.2015 - 03:21:

Je voudrais faire le pull mais la laine verdi est épuisé dans quelle qualité je peu le faire et je voudrais rester dans le rose merci pour votre aide

Bente Rasmussen 21.12.2015 - 08:40:

Hvor meget vejer den færdige trøje? Jeg har 2 nøgler Verdi liggende på ca 200 g hver. 2 forskellige farver.

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 15:07:

Hej Bente, Nu har jeg desværre ikke vægten på den trøje på billedet, men vores erfaring siger at der aldrig går mere end 200 g DROPS Verdi til en trøje, så jeg ville prøve. Held og lykke!

Marie 24.10.2014 - 20:54:

Merci pour ce modèle, je viens de le finir en taille L, avec aiguilles droites, impeccable !! un grand merci à vous de nous proposer vos modèles gratuits ! en plus, explications très claires pour moi (je débute et j'y arrive !)

Teresa 12.09.2014 - 14:18:

Would you explain this section of the pattern? "When piece measures 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm / 24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8''-28''-28¾'', continue in garter st until finished measurements - ". How long should one continue in garter stitch at this point? What is meant by "...until finished measurements?

DROPS Design 13.09.2014 kl. 09:21:

Dear Teresa, when piece measures 63-73 cm (see size), you continue working in garter st until you cast off all sts, ie when piece measures 65-75 cm. Happy knitting!

Rita 14.06.2014 - 13:38:

Als je op 2 nalden breit moet je aan elke zijde 1 steek meer opzetten voor de naad. Bij de armsgaten minder je in de eerste mindering 1 steek meer dan opgegeven, zo komt je patroon weer in orde

Anne 12.06.2014 - 12:29:

Kan ik deze ook op gewone breinaalden breien ipv rondbreinaald? Neem ik bij het achterpand dan de helft van de steken? Bedankt alvast

DROPS Design 12.06.2014 kl. 19:02:

Hoi Anne. Ja, dat kan volgens mij wel. De trui wordt sowieso heen en weer gebreid en volgens mij kunnen de st ook allemaal passen op een rechte naald.

Tinneke G 08.07.2013 - 23:06:

Ik maak model M. Bij het voorpand moet er geminderd worden op 59cm. Op dat moment zitten er 92 steken op de naald.(begonnen met 70 en 11 keer gemeerderd met 2). Er moeten 24 steken afgekant worden= 68 over (elke schouder 34). Als ik dan 1x 2st en 1x 1st minder dan houd ik er 31 over per schouder. Volgens de instructies moeten er 32 over zijn per schouder (zoals bij achterpand). Hoe los ik dit op?

DROPS Design 09.07.2013 kl. 16:27:

Je begint met 70 st en meerdert 12 keer 2 st = 94 st. Kant de middelste 26 st af voor de hals = 34 st voor elke schouder. Kant 2 st af aan het begin van de volgende nld langs de hals = 32 st over.

LAGOUTTE 20.04.2013 - 13:56:

Bonjour, Peut-on tricoter ce modèle avec des aiguilles autres que du circulaire ? Merci et sincèrement c'est un modèle simple plein de fraicheur et cette couleur acidulée est magnifique. Bon week end à toutes et à tous et bon tricot car aujourd'hui il pleut !! Amicalement

DROPS Design 20.04.2013 kl. 16:44:

Bonjour Mme Lagoutte, ce pull se tricote en allers et retours sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles, vous pouvez donc le réaliser sur des aiguilles droites. Bon tricot !
