I was wondering about knitting the hat on two straight needles instead of in the round. How many stitches would I need to knit this with Andes yarn? Thank you! You have an amazing website for free patterns!

Dear Regina, you will find here some tips to adjust the pattern on straight needles. Read how to calculate new amount of yarn. Happy knitting!

Kan jeg bruke Eskimo Degrade til denne lua, eller blir det for urolig?

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 16:37:

Hej Gunvor. Du kan sagtens bruge Eskimo Degradé til den. Om den bliver for urolig er nok mere en smagssag, hvad du selv synes? God fornöjelse.!

Bij het minderen staat bij nld 1 11-7 r. Hoe moet ik dat zien, ik snap het niet. Graag een antwoord van U. M.v.G. M.Peters

DROPS Design 28.01.2016 kl. 12:53:

Hoi M. Je hebt twee maten voor de muts: S/M - L/XL. Dus je zet 52 of 54 st op en bij het minderen in nld r brei je dan 11 of 7 st r afhankelijk van welke maat je maakt.

Suzie 02.11.2015 - 19:30:

Merci pour les explications mais j'ai encore une autre question: Je veux tricoter ce modèle sur des aiguilles circulaires. Dans les explications il est écrit: POINT FANTAISIE: RANG/TOUR 1 (= sur l'envers): *1 m env, 1 m end*, répéter de *-*. RANG/TOUR 2 (endroit): Tricoter toutes les mailles à l'end. Ce que je ne comprends pas c'est qu'en tricotant en rond je suis toujours sur l'endroit du tricot alors pourquoi c'est écrit ( = sur l'envers ) ???

DROPS Design 03.11.2015 kl. 09:28:

Bonjour Suzie, effectivement, quand vous tricotez ce point en allers et retours, le rang 1 sera sur l'envers, mais quand vous le tricotez en rond, le tour 1 est bien sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Suzie 09.10.2015 - 04:36:

Bonjour, Je veux tricoter ce modèle sur 2 aiguilles. Étant donné que je tricoterai en aller/retour est-ce que conserverai le même motif ?

DROPS Design 09.10.2015 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour Suzie, le motif est ici le même que l'on tricote en rond (bonnet) ou en aller-retour (tour de cou), mais en aller-retour, le 1er rang = sur l'envers. (voir aussi ici). Bon tricot!

Je n'ai pas de détaillant près de chez moi. Comment fait-on pour commander ? je ne vois pas de quantité souhaitée, ni de panier. Pouvez-vous me guider? merci Cordialement

DROPS Design 03.12.2014 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Mme Vacher, si vous n'avez pas de magasin près de chez vous, vous pouvez commander en ligne chez l'un des détaillants DROPS - voir liste ici . Bon tricot!

Just finished this hat and neck warmer using Cloud... And am delighted with both yarn and finished articles. Cloud is so soft and light, and not scratchy. Great addition to your collection of yarns. Hope you will be designing specifically for Cloud and increasing the range of shades. Thank you again Drops.

Ich würde diese Mütze gerne in cotton light stricken. Ist 3x B = E ?

DROPS Design 27.09.2014 kl. 10:31:

Liebe Nicole, 3x B wird dicker als 1x E. Wenn Sie allerdings nur 2 Fäden B nehmen, wird das Gestrick lockerer werden, denn Gruppe B ist dünner als Gruppe C und 2x C entspricht E. Sie müssten anhand einer Strickprobe schauen, ob das trotzdem für Sie in Frage käme. Aber stöbern Sie doch auch mal mit Hilfe der Suche, wenn Sie "Gruppe B" und "Mütze" eingeben, ob Ihnen da nicht etwas zusagt, wenn Sie gerne Cotton Light verstricken möchten. Vielleicht 122-39?
