Can this be knitted in the round?

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 18:34:

Dear Cheryl, of course you can. Happy knitting!

Just curious - the pattern mentions a DOUBLE SEED stitch - but the description looks like its knit 1 purl 1 to end of row, then next row is purl 1, knit 1. Itsn't double seed st. Knit 2, purl 2 to end of row, then purl 2 knit 2? ALso, just saw the video for making the hat and the technique looks really different - maybe its just the way the demonstrator purls - but it looks different then the way I do it!!! Am I missing something?

DROPS Design 24.02.2018 kl. 23:38:

Dear Jan, by double seed stitch here we mean that it is doubled vertically, not horizontally. So of you look at it, it is kind of elongated, two knit and two purl stitches above each other. As for the purl, there are many ways to make a purl stitch, this particular one is a Northern Eurpean way to purl. Happy Knitting!

Why are there 2 yarn types listed (Nepal and Nepal Mix) are you to switch yarns at some point? Did I miss something? Or can you use either yarn type?

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 09:26:

Dear Jan, DROPS Nepal is available in 2 kind of yarns: unicolour and mix (depending on the colour). Colour 0501 used here is a "mix" colour - see also shadecard. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, pourrait on tricoter en aiguilles circulaires´ celà éviterait’la Couture du dos ? Merci

DROPS Design 05.01.2018 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Mme Laporte, vous pouvez tout à fait choisir de tricoter ce modèle en rond pour éviter les coutures. Bon tricot!

Manue 20.11.2017 - 17:36:

Bonjour, Je ne vois pas où est indiqué le nombre de pelotes de laine à acheter en fonction de la taille ...désolée je ne suis pas une tricoteuse, je dois juste acheter la laine pour me faire tricoter le bonnet, merci :-)

DROPS Design 21.11.2017 kl. 08:17:

Bonjour Manue, vous trouverez la quantité de laine nécessaire pour chacun de nos modèles sous l'onglet "Fournitures", soit ici pour le bonnet, 100 g DROPS Nepal pour les 2 tailles / 50 g la pelote Nepal soit 2 pelotes pour chacune des 2 tailles. Bon tricot!

Hi Susan, I don't understand the comment on the Garter Stitch: one ridge equals two rows K. What is this telling me? Thank you for this pattern.

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 10:13:

Dear Mary, when you work garter stitch in rows, ie back and forth on needle, you will knit 1 row from RS and 1 row from WS to get the "ridge" - see also video below. Happy knitting!

Susan 24.10.2017 - 23:35:

Hej. Når man skal til at strikke ret når huen måler 20-21 cm, skal man så først strikke 4 pinde ret og så på 5 pind begynde at tage Ind? Tak for tidligere svar på mit spørgsmål.

Susan Andersen 14.10.2017 - 12:22:

Hej. Kan man strikke huen i Drops Nord?

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 14:14:

Hei Susan. Ja, men du må da strikke med 2 tråder Nord. DROPS Nepal fra Garnstudio tilhører garangruppe C, DROPS Nord fra Garnstudio tilhører garngruppe A. 2 tråder fra A = 1 tråd C. Men husk å sjekke din strikkefasthet med 2 tråder Nord med det som er skrevet i oppskriften. Og husk å regne ut hvor mye garn du trenger ved å bruke dobbelt tråd. God Fornøyelse!

Hallo, ist es richtig, dass die Maschenprobe im normalen Perlmuster gestrickt wird, obwohl die Mütze im DOPPELTEN Perlmuster gestrickt wird?

Kann ich die Mütze auch ohne Naht mit Sockennadeln stricken?

DROPS Design 24.03.2017 kl. 14:25:

Liebe S.P., gerne können Sie in der Runde stricken, das Perlmuster und die Abnahmen sollen dann angepasst werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
