Bonjour, Lorsqu'on tricote ce modèle dans une laine alternative, doit-on travailler avec le meme nombre de mailles ? En vous remerciant

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 09:33:

Bonjour Danielle, pour tricoter ce modèle dans une alternative sans avoir à modifier les explications, vous devez avoir le même échantillon - vous trouverez ici des indications complémentaires sur les alternatives. Bon tricot!

Danielle 23.10.2017 - 21:27:

Bonsoir, je souhaiterais réaliser ce pull avec un fil de qualité alternative à savoir brushed alpaga silk. Mais combien de pelotes dois-je commander pour la taille S ? en vous remerciant

DROPS Design 24.10.2017 kl. 08:36:

Bonjour Danielle, vous trouverez ici toutes les infos nécessaires pour calculer la nouvelle quantité de laine, n'oubliez pas que, même du même groupe, des fils de composition différentes auront un aspect différent pour un même modèle. Bon tricot!

Regnier Adeline 23.08.2017 - 12:03:

Bonjour, Petite question je ne vois pas sur la photo mais j'ai l'impression que le pull est en jersey et dans les explications les rangs en aller retour sont tricotés tous en points endroit ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 23.08.2017 kl. 12:30:

Bonjour Adeline! Le pull est en jersey: en travaillant en aller retour, le rang sur l'endroit est toujours a l'endroit et le rang sur l'envers est toujours a l'envers. Bon tricot!

Nadine 24.08.2015 - 18:56:

Good day I enjoyed knitting this easy pattern, but I have reach the point of sewing the shoulder, side and arm seams. It is if the arm sleaves are to narrow for the opening at the sides, yet I have done everything just as said in the pattern. Where could I have gone wrong? Regards

DROPS Design 25.08.2015 kl. 09:30:

Dear Nadine, pin sleeves around armholes/sleeve on body to fit sts easily and maintain in place before sewing. Happy knitting!

Marie Fairbairn 12.12.2014 - 00:15:

When I increase doesn't that throw off my ribbing?

DROPS Design 12.12.2014 kl. 09:43:

Dear Mrs Fairbairn, when you inc in collar in P sections, the ribbing will be altered to P3, P4 ... in the increased sections and will remain P2 in remaining sections. Happy knitting!

BOURGOIN Michèle 07.11.2013 - 18:59:

Intéressée par le modèle drops 128-13 en Paris (coton) j'aimerai savoir dans quelle qualité de laine je pourrai le réaliser en respectant les mêmes mensurations. Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 08.11.2013 kl. 09:05:

Bonjour Mme Bourgoin, la quantité de fil nécessaire est indiquée, au poids, dans l'ordre des tailles, à droite de la photo, ainsi en taille S par ex., il faut 650 g/ 50 g la pelote de Paris = 13 pelotes, sur la base de l'échantillon indiqué. Bon tricot!
