Hej, jag funderar på att göra den här i grått eller naturfärg. Vilka garner blir snygga tillsammans av de märken ni föreslår?

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 13:37:

Hei Carolina. Hva som blir fint er veldig subjektivt, så det beste er om du har anledning tilå gå til et DROPS utsalgssted og se garnene fysisk. Genseren på bildet er strikket med begge kvalitetene i tilnærmet lik faregnyanse, og om du velger tilsvarende i grå eller baige vil du få en gjevn og sterk farge. Om du velger Kid Silken i en lysere nyanse, eventuelt hvit vil dette være med på å duse ned fargen, som kan være en fin effekt om man ønsker det. Her er det ikke noe fasitsvar! God fornøyelse

Annika Happe-Bartz 25.11.2017 - 09:21:

Hallo liebes Team! Ich würde gerne den Milkshake Pulli in Größe M oder L stricken. Da ich aber keinen Glitzer mag, wollte ich nach Alternativen fragen. Kann ich den Glitzer einfach durch einen weiteren Fäden Alpaca ersetzen? Oder einfach den dritten Faden weglassen? Danke für eure Hilfe und liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 08:57:

Liebe Frau Happe-Bartz, Glitter spielt überhaupt nicht mit der Maschenprobe, den faden können Sie einfach weglassen und nur mit 1 Faden Alpaca + 1 Faden Kid-Silk stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ellen Skovmand 07.01.2017 - 14:16:

Kan man undlade glittertråden?

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 14:56:

Hej Ellen. Ja, det kan du sagtens. Den er saa tynd at det har ingen indflydelse paa strikkefastheden.

Joan 06.11.2016 - 21:37:

Kan jeg strikke denne Milkshake sweater i alternativt garn som Drops Cotton Viscose og hvor mange nøgler skal jeg beregne til str. M og hvilke str. pinde skal jeg bruge?

DROPS Design 07.11.2016 kl. 12:12:

Hej Joan. Du kan godt bruge Viscose, i stedet for f.eks. Alpaca. Men du skal stadig bruge Kid-Silk (eller 2 traade Viscose). Jeg ville dog fraraade 2 traade Viscose, da jeg tror det bliver alt for tungt og vil blive uformelig. Du kan laese her hvordan du beregner hvor meget garn du skal bruge

Jan Tierney 11.03.2016 - 17:29:

Hi I am a beginner and would love to knit this milkshake jumper for myself. Can I knit it in alpaca only and if so would I need more than 450g of wool. Kind Regards Jan

DROPS Design 11.03.2016 kl. 18:11:

Dear Mrs Tierney, please click here to calculate amount of yarn when using an alternative (it could be here either 2 strands Alpaca instead of 1 strand Alpaca + 1 strand Kid-Silk or 1 strand yarn group C (= 2 strands group A). Happy knitting!

Bourazani Eva 14.10.2015 - 21:06:

Sylvaine Triomphe 01.02.2015 - 14:50:

Je voudrais faire ce pull avec la laine BabyAlpacaSilk en taille M, est ce que cela est possible et avec quelle aiguille circulaire ou classique?Merci

DROPS Design 02.02.2015 kl. 12:51:

Bonjour Mme Triomphe, BabyAlpacaSilk appartient au même groupe (groupe A) que Alpaca et Kid-Silk, vous pouvez donc changer un des 2 fils ou tricoter avec 2 fils BabyAlpacaSilk - pensez à bien vérifier votre tension et calculez le métrage nécessaire ici. Bon tricot!

Inger 04.09.2014 - 16:35:

Den blir väldigt vid runt kroppen, man kan med fördel sticka en storlek mindre än den man normalt har. Min blev jättestor!

Quirenove 25.02.2014 - 13:13:

Pour ce pull au point mousse,est-te vous sure que le bas ne va pas roulotter ?

DROPS Design 25.02.2014 kl. 13:56:

Bonjour Mme Quirenove, le pull se tricote entièrement au point mousse, le bas ne devrait pas roulotter. Bon tricot!
