Penelope Hamp 10.02.2019 - 12:46:

What yarn weight dies this pattern require please - 4ply???

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 03:19:

Dear Penelope, this pattern uses Baby Merino yarn, which is 175 m / 50 gramm balls. That is ever so slightly thicker than the average sockyarn, so it falls into the sportweight category, and the DROPS yarn group A. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Ingrid 01.03.2017 - 21:48:

Hei! Er det mulig å legge ut et bilde av kysa slik at man ser litt mer av den? Nå ser man kun kanten på den framfra.

DROPS Design 02.03.2017 kl. 09:11:

Hej Ingrid, vi har desværre ikke flere billeder af kysen, vi håber du klarer dig med billedet i vuggen. God fornøjelse!

Judith Bunge-schuknecht 18.08.2015 - 21:22:

Ich habe die jacke fast fertig, aber die Übersetzung der anleitung des kragens ist eine Katastrophe. Ich bitte um hilfe.ich möchte die jacke gerne fertig stellen. L.g.

DROPS Design 01.09.2015 kl. 16:10:

Der Absatz zum Kragen wurde nun neu übersetzt, hoffentlich ist es nun besser verständlich.

Marin Aurélia 16.08.2015 - 18:38:

Bonjour, j'ai commencé à tricoté ce modèle mais je ne peux pas continuer car la légende des point n'est pas en français. Serait-il possible de la traduire? Vous remerciant par avance, cordialement

DROPS Design 17.08.2015 kl. 10:01:

Bonjour Mme Marin, vous trouverez la légende des diagrammes entre la fin des explications du modèle et le schéma des mesures. Bon tricot!

Elna Engedal 24.09.2014 - 14:12:

Der står under rettelser til jakken at man skal slå 16 masker mere op til ærmer, det vil sige 54 masker ialt til str.0-3mdr. Bliver det ikke for stort.

DROPS Design 29.09.2014 kl. 08:53:

Hej Elna, Hvis du har opskriften fra nettet, så er den allerede rettet. Det er kun hvis du har katalogerne du skal tænke på rettelserne. God fornøjelse!

Marianne 25.08.2014 - 22:34:

På M3 skal tråden som strikkes med legges på forsiden, selv om en strikker på vrangen?

Elna Engedal 20.08.2014 - 12:50:

Hej Jeg er gået igang med at strikke denne søde trøje. Syntes ikke rigtig jeg forstår diagram M2 og M3. Er det kun alle retpindene der er vist? Skal der strikkes vrang tilbage? Skal jeg selv sætte vrangpindene ind.

DROPS Design 20.08.2014 kl. 16:58:

Hej Elna. Begge pinde vises paa diagrammet. Hver anden raekke (2,4,6 osv) er vrangen. Mönstret vises fra retten, saa staar der r (paa retten), skal du strikke vrang paa vrangen og omvendt. God fornöjelse videre.

Angelika Busch 27.06.2014 - 12:27:

Hatte bisher noch nie Probleme mit den Mustern, aber diesmal schon. Sind bei dem Diagramm hin und Rückreihen gezeichnet oder nur die Hinreihen und bei der Rückreihen die Maschen stricken wie sie erscheinen? Danke im Voraus

DROPS Design 27.06.2014 kl. 14:06:

Liebe Frau Busch, es sind alle R eingezeichnet, also sowohl Hin- als auch Rück-R. Gutes Gelingen!

Christina Nilsson 13.05.2014 - 16:20:

Garnet, som rekommenderas i detta mönster, heter Baby Merino, inte Baby Ull?!

Berit 12.05.2014 - 13:43:

Baby-ull finns ju inte längre!
