When decreasing is it every 5th row and not every 5cm? Pattern states every 5th cm? Thanks

Dear Erica, you dec every 5th cm. Happy knitting!

I am planning to knit this in your merino extra fine wool - do you think that would work? Also, as this is not knitted in the round, why do you suggest double pointed needles? Thanks Erica

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 10:08:

Dear Mrs Bradley, as Merino Extra Fine and Muskat are both yarn group B, you can use Merino Extra Fine - read more about alternative here. Each piece is worked back and forth but neck edge is then worked in the round with double pointed needles. Happy knitting!
