Put all sts on a stitch holder.

Hi in the Buttercup Drops Design hooded jacket I am not sure for the hood if I am supposed to do short rows at the end of each row every 1cm or 2cms. It says to continue every other cm until 23cm ( I am doing 6 to 9 month old size). Could you please clarify this for me? Thanks.

DROPS Design 13.02.2018 kl. 09:43:

Dear Mrs Bowey, you continue the short rows as before over the 24 first sts on each side every 2 cm until hood measures 23 cm. Happy knitting!

Jette Damgaard 07.01.2018 - 16:26:

Jeg er nu kommet til hætten, men mangler nogle masker. Hvad har jeg gjort forkert. Jeg har 2x24 masker fra forstykkerne, 16 masker fra nakken og 8 masker fra halsen. Det giver 72 masker, men der står at jeg skal have 106. Hvad mangler jeg? Venlig hilsen Jette Damgaard

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 16:27:

Hej Jette, Hvis du har for få masker når du samler op så tager du bare ud på første pind. God fornøjelse!

Lisa 23.11.2017 - 04:00:

Hallo in der Anleitung steht folgendes: "Weiter am Schluss der R., gegen Vorderseite 2 neue M. anschlagen (gegen den Hals). Bei der nächsten R. wiederholen = 64-69-77 (91-103) M. 1 R. auf der Rückseite stricken und danach die M. auf einen Hilfsfaden legen." Schlage ich zwei Maschen zwischen blende und glatt rechts gestricktem Teil an, stricke zurück und wiederhole dies noch einmal oder schlage ich die 4Maschen auf einmal an?Danke!

DROPS Design 23.11.2017 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Lisa, das Video unten zeigt wie Sie diese 2 Maschen x2 am Ende der Reihe anschlagen sollen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Steffi Maier 16.08.2017 - 21:33:

Ich verstehe bei den Hausschuhen den vorletzten Satz nicht: vorne und hinten auf beiden Seiten der mittleren Masche je 2M rechts zusammenstricken... welche Maschen sind damit gemeint und welche Mittlere Masche? Ich weiß auch schon gar nicht wo vorne und hinten sein soll. Das Strickstück ist ja hinten offen... für schnelle Hilfe wäre ich dankbar, es soll ein Geschenk werden.

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 11:45:

Liebe Frau Maier, hier sehen Sie im Video wie man die Schühchen strickt, und hier wie sie fertigstellen werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Pia Nielsen 18.07.2017 - 20:30:

Hej Når jeg strikker forstykket, så starter jeg med ret, og derefter fortsætter i glatstrikning. Når jeg så skal lave den forkortede pind, gøres dette så på vrang, dvs 13 masker også vend? Når jeg holder stykket foran mig så er det glatstrikning som bliver længst, er dette korrekt? Når jeg skal lave den forkortede pind, hvilken ende måler man så fra dvs de 4 cm? Hjælp hjælp Mvh Pia

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 15:03:

Hej Pia, du strikker forkortede pinde over de retstrikkede riller, så forkanten ikke trækker arbejdet sammen. Når du måler skal du gøre det i det glatstrikkede arbejde. God fornøjelse!

Keith McCloy 06.07.2017 - 16:49:

In BabyDrops21-1, left frontpiece, last para, it says slip 24 stitches onto a holder, then cast on 2 new stitches. My yarn is at the end of the row, then I have 24 stitches on a holder, then I have 60 stitches on my needle. Where exactly, do I cast on these two stitches?

DROPS Design 07.07.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Mrs McCloy, on left front piece, work the first 24 sts from WS and slip them onto a st holder (so that you don't have to cut the yarn), work to the end of row, turn and at the end of next row from RS cast on 2 new sts. Work next row from WS and cast on 2 new sts at the end of next row from RS (= 4 new sts on needle = 64-69 sts (see size)). Happy knitting!

Keith McCloy 20.06.2017 - 15:10:

Woolwarehouse explained that your short rows section means to knit across the 24 band stitches then turn. Then knit 12 stitches into the middle of the band section and then turn. This leaves an ugly mark in the middle of the band section. Why do we need these short rows and if so, how am I supposed to implement the short rows section?

DROPS Design 21.06.2017 kl. 10:00:

Dear Mrs McCloy, your store is right, that's how you are working the short rows. This video below shows how to work short rows in garter st with wrap to avoid any holes. Happy knitting!

Sandra 04.06.2017 - 22:13:

Wenn ich die Grösse 68/74 stricken möchte, muss ich dafür 47 + 24 Maschen = 71 Maschen anschlagen oder kommt die Randmacher noch hinzu, also 72 Maschen insgesamt?

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 08:55:

Liebe Sandra, in der 2. Größe müssen 47 M angeschlagen werden, die Randmasche und die Blendemaschen gehören zu den 47 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Alejandra Solá 16.05.2017 - 19:52:

Hola tengo duda con las vueltas cortas, dice que se deben tejer 2 vueltas cortas sobre los 24 puntos del borde, ¿qué borde, el tejido en punto jersey? Y luego dice tejer 2 vtas en pt musgo únicamente sobre los 12 puntos externos, ¿a qué puntos se refiere, son parte de los 24 puntos anteriores? Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 28.05.2017 kl. 12:00:

Hola Alejandra. Las vueltas acortadas se trabajan sobre los 24 puntos de la cenefa (el borde) en punto musgo. Primero se trabajan sobre los 24 puntos de la cenefa de ida y vuelta y después 2 filas solamente sobre los 12 puntos más externos hacia el borde del delantero, es decir, visto por el lado derecho, los primeros 12 puntos de ida y vuelta, y después continuar según el patrón.

Natascha Magnusson 31.03.2017 - 22:33:

När man gör mätningarna i detta mönster gör man dem då där man gör de förkortade varven i kanten mitt fram, eller där arbetet blir kortast i sido kanten mot armen?

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 14:47:

Hej Natascha, du mäter i sidan. Lycka till!
