Die Mütze ist sehr schön und sehr schnell gestrickt. Allerdings sind die 94 M am Schluss selbst bei meinem großen Kopf zu viel... ich habe drei runden nach den 16 M nochmals 10 M gleichmäßig verteilt abgenommen, das passt. Sehr flauschig und weich!

Hello! If I use Drops Air as alternative yarn for this pattern would I get the same gauge? Thank you.

DROPS Design 24.06.2016 kl. 08:37:

Dear Yuliya, 2 strands group A = 1 strand group C - so that you can use Air as alternative to 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk - read more here. Happy knitting!

J'ai réalisé ce modèle en laine Big Delight, couleur forêt d'automne. Avec les changements de couleur de la laine et le relief des motifs, le rendu est magnifique! Je n'ai pas eu de soucis pour les mesures, ceci dit j'ai resserré un peu la bordure car de mon expérience les dimensions sur Drops tendent à être un peu lâches.

Bonjour, Ce modèle est adorable et je voudrais le faire, mais je n'aime pas tricoter avec deux fils. Quel fil unique conseilleriez-vous pour remplacer DROPS ALPACA et DROPS KID-SILK tenus ensemble? Merci, Odile

DROPS Design 23.02.2015 kl. 13:40:

Bonjour Odile, on tricote ici avec 2 fils du groupe A, on peut donc utiliser en alternative 1 fil du groupe C - cliquez ici pour calculer la quantité nécessaire dans une qualité alternative. Bon tricot!

Très beau modèle le résultat est génial!!! mais démarrage compliqué pour ma part j'ai de suite démarrer avec l'aiguille circulaire je n'y suis pas arrivée avec les 4 aiguilles quand on a passé ce cap ,trop facile Bon courage.

Sofia 23.09.2014 - 16:36:

Jo, jag har tänkt om jag minskat för mycket, men 30 maskor. 23 minskningar har jag gjort på varje rapport. får testa att sticka om det en gång så får jag se om jag får det att stämma kanske. Men i början ska det bara vara 10 maskor då? 2 på 2 stickor 3 på 2 stickor?

DROPS Design 29.09.2014 kl. 08:42:

Hej Sofia, Jo du börjar med 10 maskor, stickar enligt diagrammet. Lycka till :)

Sofia 23.09.2014 - 14:30:

Hej! jättefin basker! Jag har lyckats med att få det till för lite maskor på slutet, nämligen 80! alltså 30 maskor för lite. har ni någon ide var jag har gjort fel?!

DROPS Design 23.09.2014 kl. 15:03:

Hej Sofia, om du följer diagrammet har du 22 m i varje rapport (22 x 5 = 110m). Kan du evt ha minskat för mycket?

Nadine 23.11.2013 - 22:23:

Bonjour, j'ai eu beaucoup de peine à commencer cet ouvrage avec les aiguilles doubles pointes. Après avoir recommencé plusieurs fois, j'ai finalement adopté la méthode du "magic loop" avec l'aiguille circulaire dès le montage des mailles. C'est bien plus facile!

Donatella Grassi 18.11.2013 - 14:46:

Buongiorno,vorrei sapere come e quando devo fare gli aumenti.non riesco a capire,grazie

DROPS Design 18.11.2013 kl. 14:50:

Buongiorno Donatella, deve lavorare il berretto seguendo il diagramma A.1, il lavoro aumenterà e diminuirà di conseguenza durante il motivo. Ci riscriva se ha altre difficoltà. Buon lavoro!
