Hi. I am interested in making a winter coat using this pattern. How warm is the wool? Can I add a liner to give it extra warmth?

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 09:41:

Dear Mrs Moore, you will read more about this yarn here - depending on how warm you'd like the coat to be, you might have to addd a liner - please contact your DROPS store - even per mail or telephone - for any assistance choosing the yarn. Happy knitting!

Mitsuko Fredrickson 28.05.2019 - 21:21:

Here I am again on Raglan increase and incorporating some increase into bamboo stitches. You told me previously ; *work the first 8 new inc stitches on front piece in bamboo pattern *(i.e. inc 2 stitches before there is enough stitches to work bamboo pattern), then work the remaining inc stitches in stocking st. Happy Knitting! *Does this mean wait for 8 inc. sts before adding 4 bamboo stitches on the first marker? Or add one bamboo sts (2sts) each side?

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 08:39:

Dear Mrs Fredrickson, bamboo pattern is a 2 stitches repeat, work the first 1st increased in stocking st (= P from WS and K from RS), purl the 2nd increased from WS, and on next row work these 2 new sts in bamboo pattern (while continuing increasing). When the first 8 sts increased on raglan are worked in bamboo pattern, work the next increased in stocking stitch. Happy knitting!

Mitsuko F 26.05.2019 - 23:26:

Start inc. for Raglan and incorporating in bamboo stitch; Do I start bamboo st. only at the first increase marker? That means 2st bamboo and also at the last increase marker. Your pattern indicate to "Work the first 8 inc. its on front piece in bamboo sts. " Does this mean I wait for 4 inc.sts before starting on bamboo its on each side? Thanks always for your prompt reply. Mitsuko

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 01:54:

Dear Mitsuko, the 2 stitches at the edges should be knitted with garter stitch, and when you do the increases, you should work the new inc sts on back piece and sleeves in stocking st, and work the first 8 new inc sts on front piece in bamboo pattern (i.e. inc 2 sts before there is enough sts to work bamboo pattern), then work the remaining inc sts in stocking st. Happy Knitting!

Mitsuko Fredrickson 23.05.2019 - 23:28:

I would really like to see the stitches in the back of the coat. How it looks like and how much bamboo stitch and stockinette stitch show.

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 02:04:

Dear Mitsuko, we do not have the pictures you are asking for, however, I would suggest you look through the Ravelry page for this pattern, and see the many pieces that were knitted using this pattern. There you can see it on different sized and shaped bodies, and from different angles as well. Happy Knitting!

Mitsuko Fredrickson 23.05.2019 - 23:16:

After you finish the elevation on back of a neck, do you end up with right side of the garment? That means I start the yoke row with wrong side, correct? If not I must be making something wrong with the elevation turn. But I cannot figure out ....

DROPS Design 24.05.2019 kl. 08:00:

Dear Mrs Fredrickson, correct, last row worked on short rows for elevation is worked from RS, turn and work next row from WS over all stitches at the same time insert markers (see at the beg of YOKE). Happy knitting!

Mitsuko Fredrickson 05.05.2019 - 02:08:

For the hood, after casting on do I knit garter stitch all the way across 116 stitches? Or do I start the bamboo stitch right after casting on with two ridge stitches on both side?

DROPS Design 05.05.2019 kl. 08:50:

Hello Mitsuko. For the hood, after casting on sts, you work two rows in garter stitch and then you start with the bamboo stitch. Happy knitting!

Mitsuko 24.04.2019 - 22:00:

The sizing on the finished bust measurement and th diagram with the sizes don't match. For instance the small 33" opposed to the diagram 42" Will someone clarify this?

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 09:03:

Dear Mitsuko, measurements in chart are in cm - 42 cm measured flat are 84 cm circumference = 33 inches. Read more about sizing and convert into inches here. Happy knitting!

Martine 18.02.2019 - 09:03:

Bonjour ,petite question pour le raglan les points de bambous se construisent sur plusieurs lignes jusqu\\\'à ce qu\\\'on arrive à huit ?? N\\\'auriez vous pas une petite vidéo comme pour les augmentations et la rehausse ? À combien de dessins plus ou moins doit on arriver pour un modèle M Merci belle journée à vous

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 10:51:

Bonjour Martine, cette vidéo montre comment tricoter la réhausse. qui se tricote au point mousse, pas au point de bambou. Les 2 mailles du raglan se tricotent en jersey, vous tricotez les augmentations au point de bambou quand vous en avez suffisamment (= il faut 2 mailles pour tricoter 1 motif entier). Bon tricot!

Mönster 156-1 Kanten längst ner rullar sig.. Vad göra??? Lena

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 13:27:

Hei Lena. Siden du har 2 kantmasker i riller og så strukturstrikk skal det ikke rulle seg så mye. Du kan prøve å dampe plagget lett når du er ferdig, hvis det likevel har rullet seg. God fornøyelse

Jada 02.02.2019 - 22:50:

Can you share the measurements of Medium vs Large, etc.? I'm unsure which would fit right.

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 12:08:

Hi Jada, The measurements for the different sizes are given on a sketch at the bottom of the pattern. Happy knitting!
