I can't determine the sizes from the diagram. Could you tell me the equivalent chest sizes please.

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 09:07:

Dear Irene, the best way to find the matching size is to measure a similar garment you have and like the shape, then compare these measurements to the ones from the chart. Read more here about sizing. Happy knitting!

Bonjour\r\nJe pense qu’il y a une erreur sur la quantité de pelotes car il me manquera 2 pelotes.\r\nJ’ai fait la tailleL/XL en utilisant le fil drops Paris comme sur le modèle.\r\nJe n’ai fait aucune erreur et je tricote normalement pour la tension du fil.\r\nJe vais donc repayer des frais de port et cela m’embête fortement..\r\nMerci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 09.11.2018 kl. 08:11:

Bonjour Jacqueline, avez-vous bien conservé la même tension pour votre poncho que pour votre échantillon? Soit 14 m x 23 rangs = 10 x 10 cm? Il est important de bien conserver la bonne tension, qui est la base de calcul de la quantité de fil. Bon tricot!

Jacqueline 22.10.2018 - 08:47:

Bonjour Encore une fois merci pour votre réponse si rapide et votre sérieux. Ça fait plaisir Bonne journée

Jacqueline 20.10.2018 - 19:08:

Bonjour J’aurais besoin d’une explication. J’ai bien fait fait trois fois A1 et je suis donc au moment ou j’ai 125 mailles sur mon aiguille. Après le rang spécial avec 6 mailles au point mousse, il faut continuer au point fantaisie Est ce que je commence directement A2 au rang 5 sans faire les 4 rangs jersey que l’on voit sur le diagramme ? Merci pour votre réponse et bravo pour votre site!!

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 08:19:

Bonjour Jacqueline, quand vous avez 125 m (et 44 rangs), vous tricotez au rang suivant sur l'endroit comme indiqué (= soit 1 fois A.2 en hauteur avec 6 m point mousse de chaque côté): 6 m point mousse, 1x A.2A, 6xA.2B, 1xA.2C, 6 m point mousse - commencez A.2 au 1er rang en bas à droite dans le diagramme (sur l'endroit), c'est-à-dire que les 4 premiers rangs de A.2 sont des rangs en jersey - A.2 se termine par 3 rangs jersey). Bon tricot!

I made the blue breeze poncho and I am wondering if I should block the pieces before I sew them together?

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:24:

Dear Mrs Podolski, you can block each piece before sewing or block whole finished project as you rather used to do. Enjoy!

Odette Paquette 03.09.2018 - 19:19:

Merci pour la réponse service rapide

Odette Paquette 02.09.2018 - 22:13:

Si je comprends bien les 2 mailles rajouter a la fin de chaque rang sont inclus dans le rang a1 suivant.

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:43:

Bonjour Mme Paquette, les 2 mailles de chaque côté vont se tricoter également en suivant M.1. Bon tricot!

Gaby Marschner 31.05.2018 - 12:27:

Hallöchen, ich mache diesen Drops Poncho in hellblau mit eurer Wolle. Ich finde diese Anleitung kompliziert geschrieben und habe schon zig mal geriffelt weil es immer nicht hinkommt. Laut Anleitung geht das Muster von A1 direkt nach A2, im Bild sind da aber noch 1 Reihe links und 1 Reihe rechts zu sehen. Ausserdem hatte ich im A2 die Abnahmen nicht schön, die sieht man doch. 2Knäuel Wolle sind im Garn mit Schlaufen. Bekomme ich die erstattet

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 14:50:

Liebe Frau Marschner, es wird 24-30-36 Reihen in A.1 nach A.2 gestrickt, dh 5 Reihen nach der mit den Löchern. Die Abnahmen nach A.2 und im A.1 werden bei einer Hinreihe gestrickt, damit sie nicht so sichtbar werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Valeria 14.08.2017 - 19:17:

Buonasera, ho cominciato a lavorare lo schema A.2 partendo con 125 maglie. Ho lavorato il ferro 5 come spiegate nelle istruzioni: 6 maglie a dritto, A.1A (=14 Maglie), ho ripetuto per 6 volte A.2A (sto lavorando una taglia L/XL) (=84 maglie), A.2C (=15 Maglie) e infine 6 maglie a dritto. Purtroppo, prima di eseguite la parte A.2C mi "avanzano" 2 maglie. Dove ho sbagliato? Grazie per l'aiuto Valeria

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 21:48:

Buonasera Valeria. Prima di lavorare la quinta riga, provi a mettere dei segnapunti per individuare le singole ripetizioni dei diagrammi e le 6 maglie a legaccio. In questo dovrebbe essere più facile lavorare correttamente la riga. Buon lavoro!

Alma Biggin 27.01.2017 - 14:04:

The decreasing part of the pattern instructions are confusing , can you help me ?

DROPS Design 27.01.2017 kl. 15:22:

Dear Mrs Biggin, can you tell more like size, the dec you don't understand etc... Remember you can also request personnal assistance from your DROPS store even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!
