I am not sure how to finish the shoulders. Under assembly the directions say to sew the side seams together. Do I also sew the top edges of the shoulders together or are the attached somehow when finishing the neck edge? Thanks

DROPS Design 07.02.2017 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Shaw, shoulders have to be sewn together before picking up sts for neck edge. Happy knitting!

Der står i opskriften at der skal bruges strømpepind.Men hvor skal den bruges henne i arbejdet?

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 13:26:

Hej Susanne, strømpepindene bruger du i halsen hvis rundpinden er for lang for at maskerne skal nå hele vejen rundt. God fornøjelse!

¿la cantidad de lana es correcta para la talla XL? He tejido dicha talla y me ha faltado hilo de dos colores: denim y blanco. saludos

DROPS Design 20.05.2015 kl. 16:50:

Hola Maruja, la cantidad de la lana indicada en cada patrón es para una tensión y un tamaño de aguja concreto. Si te has ceñido a lo indicado en materiales es raro que no te haya llegado. Envío tu comentario al departamento de diseño.

Ihana "välipala" saa käytettyä lankojen loput.

Birthe Ottervik 23.01.2015 - 13:40:

Hei, jeg leser 4 farger i oppskriften, men bildet er med 5?

DROPS Design 23.01.2015 kl. 15:47:

Hej Birthe. Der er 4 farver. Du strikker striber med kombinationer af de forskellige farver. Se i opskriften under STRIPER.

Avec 2 pelotes de lace est ce suffisant pour ce modele en taille L Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 22.01.2015 kl. 17:58:

Bonjour Mme Casabene, si DROPS Lace appartient également au groupe A, elle a un métrage/poids différent de Cotton Viscose et le rendu serait totalement différent - pensez à d'autres alternatives (Safran, Alpaca, etc..). Cliquez ici pour calculer la quantité nécessaire dans une qualité équivalente. Pensez à demander à votre magasin DROPS, il pourra vous aider et vous renseigner, même par téléphone ou par mail. Bon tricot!

Catherine Tysver 22.01.2015 - 00:07:

Is the cost shown correct? Pattern States smallest size takes 11 balls,but cost shown is for 17 balls.

DROPS Design 22.01.2015 kl. 10:21:

Dear Mrs Tysver, number of balls has been edited to 11 balls in first size. Thank you, happy knitting!
