Varför rundstickor till detta mönster? Fram- och bakstycke stickas ju för sig....förstår inte detta riktigt.

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 14:00:

Hej, du kan sticka modellen på antingen rundsticka eller parstickor.

Nghiem 17.08.2018 - 10:03:

Modèle très confortable

Marialouise 27.06.2018 - 22:09:

Waarom worden hierbij rondbreinaalden gebruikt? Kan het ook met "gewone" breinaalden?

DROPS Design 01.07.2018 kl. 21:01:

Dag Marialouise, Ja, deze kan je inderdaad prima met rechte naalden breien.

Yvonne Thomsen 05.06.2018 - 23:11:

Hej, jeg forstår ikke rigtigt, at man skal slå op med 2 tråde? Kan det passe at man så skal sidde med to tråde til hver side, når man slår op??

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 15:17:

Hej Yvonne, nej du lægger bare tråden dobbelt og slår op som du plejer, når du så strikker første pind, strikker du kun med én tråd. Du slår op med 2 tråd for at kanten ikke skal blive for stram. God fornøjelse!

Agata 27.03.2018 - 22:38:

Hi! Just wanted to ask before I start - for this pattern I need needle nr 9 that is 5,5mm or needle 9mm that is size 12 in Drops set?

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 15:31:

Dear Agata, this pattern is worked with needle size 9 mm or US size 13. Happy knitting!

Agata 27.03.2018 - 22:37:

I'm beginner at knitting so excuse me if it's silly question - what's happening with second thread that we are starting with?

DROPS Design 28.03.2018 kl. 15:30:

Dear Agata, just cut one of the threads and continue with only one thread. You will then just have to weave the cut yarn. Happy knitting!

Skal forstykke strikkes helt likt som bakstykke? Med tanke på fellinger.

DROPS Design 14.02.2018 kl. 06:23:

Hei Elin, Ja, forstykke og bakstykke er strikket likt from til du skal felle til hals. God fornøyelse!

Coni 06.01.2018 - 13:45:

Hello! I am confused! Cast on with two strands but continue knitting with one? What's the purpose of this technique? What do I do with the strand left behind? Do you have a video that shows the transition from two to one strand? Please help!! Thank you! Coni.

DROPS Design 07.01.2018 kl. 06:07:

Hi Coni, you use two strands to cast on with so that the cast-on edge is stretchy. When you have cast on you cut the one strand and fasten it well and continue with just the other one. Happy knitting!

Pierrette 06.07.2017 - 00:01:

I cannot figure out if front and back are the same length. I would like to have it as long in the back as it is in the front. Can you provide directions to work with. Thanks so much!

DROPS Design 06.07.2017 kl. 00:48:

Dear Pirette, the original modell's front and back is the same length, so you can follow the directions of the pattern to get both the front and the back the same. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!
