Hej! Var god se mina frågor nedan, speciellt den senare från tidigare idag, jag har INTE köpt det hos Drops. Min fråga är även allmän om hur man tänker när garntillverkaren skriver 24m*32v med 3 mm men möstret skriver 24m*48v på samma 3 mm. Det går ju inte riktigt uppnå 48 varv genom att byta stickor och ha kvar 24 m?

Linn Sundén 07.06.2018 - 11:44:

Hej! Skrev en fråga precis här innan men jag är fortfarande förvirrad över hur varven kan bli så olika många! Säg att jag stickar precis som baby merino rekommenderar på stickor 3 mm får jag 24m*32v på 10*10. Hur ska jag då sedan med exakt samma garn och stickor få till 24m*48v på bara 10*10 när jag läser mönstret? Tack ingen

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 14:26:

Hej, ifall du köpt ditt garn hos en DROPS-återförsäljare så kan du ta kontakt med dem på nytt. De kan instruera dig om hur du ska göra.

Linn Sundén 04.06.2018 - 19:21:

Hej! Valt ett annat garn än Baby Merino som = 24m*32v med stickor 3 mm. Mitt garn = 24m*32v men rekommenderar 3,5mm. I mönstret står det ”NR 3 – eller det st.nr du måste använda för att få 24 m x 48 v rätst på 10 x 10 cm”. Det blev så stor skillnad i varven, varför? Jag önskar råd vilka stickor jag ska köpa. Vad tror du är passade stickor för mitt garn? Hur blir det när mönstret beskriver 48 varv? Ni skriver nr3 är det samma som 3 mm? Virknål?

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 07:47:

Hei Linn. Pinnenr og den strikkefastheten som står oppgitt på garnet er kun veiledende. Det er individuelt hvordan hver enkelt strikker, noen strikker løst andre fast osv. Strikkefastheten varierer også med strukturen på det som strikkes, feks må det strikkes flere omganger rillestrikk enn glattstrikk for å få 10 cm. Det som er viktig er å påse at strikkefastheten DIN stemmer med strikkefsatheten som er oppgitt – ellers vil ikke målene på plagget stemme. Du må nesten prøve deg frem ved å strikke prøvelapper for å se hvilket pinnenr du må bruke for å oppnå den riktige strikkefastheten. God fornøyelse.

Once the sweater is finished, how do you actually wrap the two front pieces using the crocheted chains? How do the two chains (cords) connect? Thanks,

DROPS Design 30.05.2018 kl. 08:53:

Dear Mrs Cain, when cardigan is done, you crochet an edge all around the opening of the jacket while you will chain ties at the tip of each front piece. Then work separately 2 chains (with sl st in every ch) approx. 20-25 cm (as long as the one at each tip) and sew the first tie on the inside of the seam in the right side of piece and the other one on the outside of the seam in the left side (= at the same height as the ones at each tip). Happy knitting!

Bom dia, preciso de ajuda pois não consigo entender a seguinte explicação: "Continuar em ponto jarreteira até a peça medir (20) 24-28-30-32 (36-40) cm. Colocar 1 marcador = marca o meio da parte de cima do ombro – AO MESMO TEMPO, montar 2 ms/pts no fim da carreira no lado do decote, e repetir estes aumentos na carreira seguinte no lado do decote = (46) 56-67-74-83 (94-106) ms/pts (última carreira = pelo avesso). Obrigada.

DROPS Design 10.04.2018 kl. 13:46:

Deve fazer os aumentos até ter o número de malhas indicadas tricotando sempre em ponto jarreteira até a peça medir os cm indicados. Bom tricô-

Would love to knit this for my first grandchild (it's so cute) but can't get my head round how you're using a circular needle. Is this two circular needles with the knitting done in rows, rather than in the round like a beany hat, and if so, are you using circular needles (plural) because of the number of stitches across the garment when the sleeves are being knitted? Sorry, confused!

DROPS Design 30.03.2018 kl. 12:30:

Dear Mrs Grant, you will work here back and forth on a circular needle, so that you will ge enough room for all sts. You can use instead straight needles, just make sure to keep the right tension since sts will be quite more tighten. Happy knitting!

Mamieflo 03.03.2018 - 18:29:

Je recommence, je ne vois pas mon commentaire . Un modèle très chou que j'ai tricoté pour mon 11eme petit-enfant pour sa naissance, offert à la maternité. Je ne l'ai pas vu sur lui mais sur une poupée de sa sœur. Un peu déçue, je ne sais pas s'il l'a porté car petit il porte des grenouillères. Un modèle simple à tricoté, joli dans les coloris proposés. J'ai pris autre chose pour la bordure, ce que j'avais.

Christine Owen 18.01.2018 - 17:25:

I'm a bit confused as to how to attach the left and right front pieces at the neck. After working the left front piece back onto the circular needle and casting on stitches for the back, then working the right front piece onto the circular needle, how do I attach the pieces?

DROPS Design 19.01.2018 kl. 10:40:

Dear Mrs Owen, work sts from left front piece, then cast on the new sts for neck (see video and work the sts from right front piece = all sts are now on the same needle with new sts for neck inbetween. Happy knitting!

Riejan Smits 17.11.2017 - 17:31:

Kan dit vstje ook op gewone naalden worden gemaakt?

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 15:04:

Hallo Riejan, In plaats van rondbreinaalden zou je inderdaad prima rechte naalden met knop kunnen gebruiken bij dit patroon. Maar met name bij de grote maten heb je dan op een gegeven moment veel steken op de naald (meer dan 100) omdat het met aangebreide mouwen is. Dit is even iets om rekening mee te houden.
