Vill göra detta mönster till en 5 åring kan det bli lagom med att dela total maskor och övriga mått på hälften

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 08:53:

Hei Inga-Britt. Om du halverer målene på sjalet blir det 80 cm langt og 20 cm på det bredeste. Det kan nok passe til en 5-åring. Med tanke på hvordan sjalet er strikket er det lett å se an dette underveis, så du kan justere dette om du skulle ønske det. God fornøyesolse

Hello dear team, I would like to knit the scarf "Nora" from light summer running yarn. So that the colours should run evenly, I would like to know how many meters of run length I need on wool. Thank you in advance. Greetings Bianca

Dear Bianca, you will find all relevant informations about our yarns on their own shadecard. Happy knitting!

Hi there, I am confused about which wool to use, the drops vivaldi is fine. But should I be using big delight or normal delight? the pattern says to use 5mm needles but normal delights calls for 2.5mm needles while big delight calls for 5mm needles. which wool shall I order? Thanks!

DROPS Design 17.11.2014 kl. 10:47:

Dear Jenny, this shawl is worked with Vivaldi and Delight, with needle size 5 mm (ie larger needle for Delight to get the wished texture) or the size needle to get 19 sts x 37 rows in garter st = 10 x 10 cm. Happy knitting!

Karianne 26.01.2014 - 12:17:

Går det med fullt 50g av Drops Vivaldi til dette sjalet? Jeg har igjen rester, men ikke mer enn 35-40 gram. Holder det?

DROPS Design 28.01.2014 kl. 16:18:

Hej Karianne. Det ved jeg desvaerre ikke. Du kan pröve at strikke og saa eventuelt smallere/mindre end her
