May I use a 50/50% merino and silk yarn for this cardigan?

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 18:40:

Dear Melanie, yes, you can use a different yarn, that is similar weight, but please do a gauge swatch and check if it has the same stitch count as given in the pattern. Happy Knitting!

Miriam Rocio 23.12.2017 - 22:14:

Buenas tardes. Estoy tejiendo la chaqueta en talla S, empecé con 133 y ahora debo seguir con el patrón A.1 que tiene 6 puntos y en los bordes 6 puntos musgo a cada lado, 133-12= 121 puntos, y 121/6=20.17. Tejiendo 20 veces el patrón A.1 me sobra 1 punto, cómo tejo este punto que sobra? o debo empezar con 132 puntos?

DROPS Design 30.12.2017 kl. 12:59:

Hola Miriam, el punto que sobra se trabaja como el primer punto de A.1, pero en la fila 9 este punto se trabaja de derecho.

Patricia Bischof 03.11.2017 - 20:32:

Like others my friend and I had difficulty matching the gauge indicated. However, my question is why do you list the gauge for the garter stitch on a 3.00 mm. when the yoke is worked on a 2.5 mm. Why is there no gauge indicated for the needle that is recommended? By the way it still turned out beautifully all 4 times!

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 08:46:

Dear Mrs Bischof, if you get the correct tension with larger needle, your tension will be right with the smaller needles. Happy knitting!

Maria Caballe 16.07.2017 - 22:12:

Buenas tardes, Mi duda es la siguiente: despues de oner los marcadores y realizar los primeros 10 aumentos, no entiendo cuantas hileras y cuantos aumentos por hilera hay que hacer hasta llegar a los 20 cms de la talla mediana i a los 353 puntos. muchas gracias

DROPS Design 27.07.2017 kl. 12:32:

Hola Maria. después de insertar los marcapuntos aumentamos de la siguiente manera: aumentar de modo alterno a cada lado del marcapuntos ( es decir, una fila todos los aumentos se trabajan antes de los marcapuntos, otra fila - después de los marcapuntos - , de este modo siempre aumentamos 10 puntos en la fila) primero cada 2ª fila 0-2-0-3-7-7 veces (el número de veces depende de la talla), después cada 4ª fila 10-10-9-9-8-8 veces y al final cada 6ª fila 5-5-7-7-7-8 veces.

Silvana 26.06.2016 - 16:39:

Buonasera. Sono arrivata ai primi aumenti dx/sx dei segna punti. Sono sul dritto del lavoro e aumento a dx. Il ferro successivo sono sul rovescio e NON aumento a sx giusto? In pratica gli aumenti sono sempre sul dritto del lavoro.? Quindi ogni 4 ferri è su ogni dritto del lavoro? Grazie attendo risposta

DROPS Design 26.06.2016 kl. 17:13:

Buongiorno Silvana. Aumenta sempre sul diritto del lavoro. Dopo aver aumentato alla destra dei segni, lavora 3 ferri senza aumentare (1 ferro sul rov, 1 sul dritto, 1 sul rov). Al quarto ferro (diritto del lavoro) aumenta alla sinistra dei segni. Lavora 3 ferri senza aumentare e al ferro successivo aumenta a destra e così via. Buon lavoro!

Silvana 26.06.2016 - 16:24:

Scusa non so se ho scritto bene, nell'incertezza riprovo. Chiedevo ogni 4 ferri la coppia dx/sx oppure , ogni 4 ferri aumento a dx, altri 4 ferri e aumento a sx...e così via grazie

DROPS Design 26.06.2016 kl. 17:12:

Buongiorno Silvana. Aumenta sempre sul diritto del lavoro. Dopo aver aumentato alla destra dei segni, lavora 3 ferri senza aumentare. Al quarto ferro (diritto del lavoro) aumenta alla sinistra dei segni. Lavora 3 ferri senza aumentare e al ferro successivo aumenta a destra e così via. Buon lavoro!

Silvana 26.06.2016 - 16:03:

Altro dubbio!😭 Ma gli aumenti prima a dx e poi a sx, non devono essere distanziati da 4 ferri tra di loro? Ogni 4 ferri è la coppia dx/sx?. Grazie mille ancora

DROPS Design 26.06.2016 kl. 17:10:

Buongiorno Silvana. Gli aumenti sono sempre sul diritto del lavoro. Aumentare ogni 4 ferri, vuol dire aumentare su un ferro lavorato sul diritto del lavoro, lavora 3 ferri senza aumentare (un ferro sul rovescio, un ferro sul diritto, un ferro sul rovescio). Aumenta al ferro successivo sul diritto del lavoro, aumentando questa volta sempre alla sinistra dei segni. Buon lavoro!

Silvana 26.06.2016 - 15:44:

Meravigliosa tempestività!😃 Scusa avevo scritto di nuovo perché non avevo visto la risposta . Mille grazie e complimenti per il lavoro che fate.

Silvana 26.06.2016 - 15:40:

Continuo la domanda posta poco fa: oppure i 4 ferri li conto dopo avete fatto Una volta dx , 1 volta sx , 4 ferri senza aumenti e ricomincio? Con gli aumenti fatti sul dritto del lavoro..... Grazie mille

DROPS Design 26.06.2016 kl. 17:09:

Buongiorno Silvana. Può vedere la risposta che le abbiamo dato sotto. Buon lavoro!
