Bonjour, Je pense que vous vous êtes trompée dans la mensuration de la circonférence : 44 et même 57 cm c'est énorme pour un photophore. Est-ce une mesure autre?

DROPS Design 22.12.2017 kl. 16:22:

Bonjour Dana, ce sont bien les bonnes mesures, on parle ici de circonférence, les photophores mesurent 40-52 cm pour s'ajuster à un support plus large. Vous pouvez naturellement les tricoter à la longueur souhaitée. Bon tricot!

This Is a very pretty and delicate look. However, its not for an inexperienced knitter. The combination of these two yarns create knots very easily, and you have to be careful not to split them or they stick out and spoil the design. If you are meticulous and patient, then this is the pattern for you.

Buonasera quanto termino un'intera ripetizione di A1 devo ricominciare dal 1 ferro come spiegato dopo la costa a legaccio quindi terminando il ferro con 7 maglie a diritto? Non sono riuscita a trovare dei vasi con questa circonferenza quindi m chiedevo se fosse possibile avere la misura in cm di un' intera ripetizione di A1 in modo che io possa regolarmi con vasi di diversa misura. Grazie e complimenti per questo carinissimo modello

DROPS Design 29.11.2015 kl. 14:34:

Buongiorno Giulia, dopo la "costa" a m legaccio deve lavorare il motivo A.1 con 7 m per parte con il bordo a pizzo, e continuare a ripeterlo fino alla lunghezza desiderata, ripartendo dal 1° ferro di A.1 con il bordo a pizzo ai lati. Se il suo campione corrisponde a quello indicato A.1 dovrebbe misurare poco più di 3 cm, in ogni caso lavori A.1 fino alla circonferenza desiderata. Buon lavoro!

Why are the measurements given for the size and circumference so large, when the candle holders shown seem clearly not to be as large as the measurements for the finished article? The smaller one in particular. From the photo it looks like a candle holder 10cm in height maximum, which is what a friend purchased for me to make these for her. Do you have a pattern for anything smaller?? Many thanks

DROPS Design 12.03.2015 kl. 17:41:

Dear Mrs Blackburn, the covers on the pictures are approx. 15-20 cm height (= width when working). If you like something smaller, you can adapt pattern, make another edge, use smaller needle .. Remember you can get help and advice from your DROPS store. Happy knitting!

Denne oppskriften var det ikke enkelt å forstå. Midtpartiet var greit men ikke i rysje (ytterkanten).

Sabine 21.12.2013 - 11:13:

Hi, ich hätte auch Angst wegen der Feuergefährlichkeit.... Aber die Anleitung etwas 'vergrößert' gibt das bestimmt eine schöne Bauchbinde für eine Vase. Werd' ich bestimmt ausprobieren...

Andrea 19.12.2013 - 07:52:

Wunderschön! Und ich glaube nicht, dass es zu heiß wird, zumindest nicht bei diesen breiten Gläsern. Sonst musst du es mit einem reinen Baumwollfaden stricken. Schön wären die auch um gläserne Teetassen. Aber leider zu groß.

Monica 18.12.2013 - 10:02:

Ich hätte Angst, dass das Glas zu heiß wird und somit die "Bauchbinde". Obwohl es hübsch ausschaut, werde ich es nicht nacharbeiten.

Dee 18.12.2013 - 08:54:

This is a fire hazard. A bad idea really.
