Bonjour, je commence la bordure avec aiguilles circulaires et dans un commentaire vous dites de tricoter chaque côté séparément. On fait donc une couture ensuite aux quatre coins? Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 10:09:

Bonjour Marta. Il n'y a aucune couture. Etant donné le nombre de mailles vous travaillez sur 4 aiguilles circulaires en rond. BON TRICOT!

Mønstret læses fra højre mod venstre i hver af de tre diagrammer, tak Lone

Lene Bagge 09.07.2017 - 16:02:

I hvilken side starter mønsteret i hhv. A1, A2 og A3?

DROPS Design 12.07.2017 kl. 12:27:

Du starter altid diagrammet i nederste højre hjørne, strikker første pind i A.1, går over til A.2 også nederst i højre hjørne og sidst A.3, således fortsætter du hele vejen rundt langs med hver side af tæppet. God fornøjelse!

Hei, Jeg strikker dette teppet og på bølgemønsteret har alt stemt hele veien. Når jeg kommer til omgang nummer 14 i diagrammene har jeg to masker for mye når jeg kommer til slutten av A3. Jeg har telt over flere ganger, men klarer ikke å se at jeg har strikket feil. Kan det være noe som ikke stemmer i diagrammet?

DROPS Design 23.06.2017 kl. 13:46:

Hei Kathrine. Hvor mange masker har du på hele 14. omgang? 676 masker? Når vi ser over 1. - 14. omgang skal det stemme med hvor mange 2 rett sammen man strikker og hvor mange kast man gjør.

I am knitting the body of the blanket. I started with CO 3 stitches - knit the next row, increasing 1 stitch at the end of each row. I have approximately 120 rows. My blanket is definitely a triangle shape. I am confused because the picture of the blanket posted appears o be square or oblong at best. Did I misread the pattern beginning with co 3 stitches and working from there. I now have 139 stitches on my needle and this size would not cover a small doll much less a baby. HELP please!!!

Dear Mrs Cumberland, the video below shows how to work this kind of blanket - remember to follow the pattern as explained about number of sts, size etc... ie when you have worked half of the blanket, you will now dec on each side to get a square. Happy knitting!

Betty 04.02.2017 - 07:40:

Hi I have 2 questions about knitting the edge pattern, 1, do I read the pattern 1St row right to left and the 2nd row left to right? 2, when I have knitted all 4 sides (1 round) do I turn the needles or continue round again without turning the needles?

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Betty, the edge is worked on circular needle in the round around the entire blanket (4 sides), always read all rows starting from the right towards the left, starting on 1st row at the bottom corner on the right side towards the left. Happy knitting!

Bonsoir, faut il une cinquième aiguille circulaire pour tricoter la bordure ? Je ne vois pas comment faire sinon... Pouvez-vous m'aider ? Merci beaucoup.

DROPS Design 13.10.2016 kl. 07:47:

Bonjour Mme Navarette, vous pouvez tricoter chaque côté l'un après l'autre avec l'aiguille circulaire où sont les mailles: tricotez les m de la 1ère aiguille circulaire avec l'autre extrémité (elles restent sur la même aiguille), tricotez ensuite les mailles de la 2ème aiguille circulaire de la même façon et ainsi de suite tout le tour et répétez au tour suivant. Bon tricot!

Caroline Linde 30.07.2016 - 17:11:

Hej. När man stickat halva första delen av filten (rätstickningen) så ska den mäta 52 cm enligt mönstret. Men min mäter bara 46 cm. Är det pga att det krymper ihop lite? Vad ska jag göra?

DROPS Design 01.02.2017 kl. 08:52:

Hej Caroline, man kan gå upp ett halvt nummer på stickan, så stickfastheten passar bättre. Lycka till!

Jeanne Karlsson 03.04.2016 - 18:04:

Hvordan kan man se hvor meget garn der går til en opskrift ?

DROPS Design 04.04.2016 kl. 16:57:

Hej Jeanne. Det staar överst i opskriften: DROPS BABY MERINO fra Garnstudio, 350 g f.nr 02, natur
