Hi. I made this jumper recently and it's really lovely but it smells horrible, especially when it gets even slightly wet. Is there a way to get rid of the smell?

DROPS Design 31.03.2017 kl. 13:34:

Dear Hanna, please contact your DROPS store for any further information about the yarn, yarn care ... They will be able to help you with tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Camilla 04.02.2017 - 10:00:

Synes det med kantm var mangelfullt forklart. Kan dere utdype? Også veldig upraktisk at det er så begrenset hvor mye man kan skrive i spm.feltet uten at man får beskjed om det. Fikk ikke forklart hele problemstillingen og måtte gå tilbake og redigere flere ganger etter gjentatte "robot-tester".

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:43:

Hej Camilla. 1 kantmaske er 1 rille? Altsaa du strikker kantmasken r paa alle pinde.

Camilla 04.02.2017 - 09:56:

Jeg strikker genseren i str s. Hva menes "på beg av neste 2 pinne? Jeg har i utgangspunktet 91 m og skal felle til jeg har 70 m. På str s, skal det da felles 3 m på begynnelsen av hver pinne, i hver side? Da går jo ikke m.antallet som skal felles opp med hvor mange m som skal bli igjen. Det skal felles totalt 21 m. Hvis det da skal felles 3 m i hver side, så blir det 7 fellinger totalt. Men da vil det jo bli 3 fellinger på den ene siden og fire på den andre?

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:52:

Hej Camilla. Nej, du springer noget over. Du har 91 m og feller 15 m jaevnt fordelt (dvs, du strikker 2 m r sammen over hele pinden med en jaevn afstand), du lukker ikke af i siden her (se den her lektion med öke/felle jaevnt fordelt). Og du skal have 76 m bagefter. Du lukker af i siden (begyndelsen af hver p) til ermhul: 3 i hver side = 70 m tilbage.

I would like to knit in alpaca but thecwool is in two strands will it be OK to knit this pattern or should I do a test piece. If so can you tell me the gusge. Thanks. (uk)

DROPS Design 19.12.2016 kl. 09:55:

Dear Emma, BabyAlpaca Silk and Kid-Silk are both Yarn group A as Alpaca does too, so that you can use 2 strands Alpaca instead of 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and Kid-Silk, due to the content difference, you will have a different texture too - read more here. Happy knitting!

Rebecca 04.12.2016 - 17:31:

Hei! Kan jeg bruke bare DROPS Alpaca garn i denne oppskriften? Så at Alpaca garn også er i garngruppe A. Betyr det at jeg kan bruke det sitedenfor BabyAlpaca Silk og Kid-Silk?

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 12:32:

Hej Rebecca. Denne tröje er strikket i to traader - begge i gruppe A, saa du kan erstatte med 2 traader Alpaca eller du kan strikke med 1 traad Alpaca + 1 traad Kid-Silk. Laes her hvordan du beregner hvor meget du skal bruge og glem ikke at strikke en pröve saa din fasthed stemmer :) God fornöjelse.

Elie 15.11.2015 - 20:09:

Bonjour, Les mesures en hauteur s'effectuent-elles trictot à plat ou suspendu? Cordialement

DROPS Design 16.11.2015 kl. 14:36:

Bonjour Elie, les mesures doivent être prises à plat. BabyAlpaca Silk et Kid-Silk ne sont pas si lourdes, même tricotées ensemble. Bon tricot!

Elena 04.03.2015 - 22:23:

Hi, How many rows should be done for the swatch to get a 10x10cm piece? I am having difficulties figuring the right needle size as it seems as though my knitting is abnormally tight. Thank you! :)

DROPS Design 05.03.2015 kl. 10:54:

Dear Elena, check you get the correct amount of sts in width to be sure to get the correct measurements, tension in height can be easily adjusted then with measurements. You can also wash your swatch to check measurements before starting. Your DROPS store will give you any tips and advices. Happy knitting!

Jerina 02.02.2015 - 12:19:

Hallo, Als ik deze trui met Alpaca Bouclé brei, klopt het dan dat ik voor maat M 400 gr nodig heb? Met Babyalpaca silk gebruik je namelijk 1002 meter voor maat M. Als je ook 1002 meter van Alpaca Bouclé gebruik, kom ik uit op 400 gr. (stekenverhouding is hetzelfde) Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 02.02.2015 kl. 16:47:

Hoi Jerina. Ja, dat is correct. Vergeet niet om een proeflapje te breien om de stekenverhouding voor het patroon goed te hebben. Veel breiplezier.

Kathy 28.01.2015 - 21:04:

There are a couple yarns listed. Do I knit them together

DROPS Design 29.01.2015 kl. 09:08:

Dear Kathy, this jumper is worked with 1 strand of each yarn (= 1 strand BabyAlpacaSilk + 1 strand Kid-Silk) held together as there was just 1 - you should get 17 sts in garter st = 10 cm in width. Happy knitting!

Corinna Wacker 29.12.2014 - 12:07:

Hallo, kann ich für dieses Modell anstatt mit der Drops Kid Silk auch mit Brushed Alpaka Silk kombinieren. Viele Grüsse Corinna

DROPS Design 30.12.2014 kl. 17:04:

Das geht nicht so gut, da Brushed Alpaca Silk in eine andere Garngruppe gehört und etwas dicker ist als Kid-Silk. Sie sollten daher als Flauschgarn Kid-Silk bei dieser Anleitung verwenden.
