How soft or rough is this material? Would it be comfortable again bare skin or scratchy?

DROPS Design 08.05.2018 kl. 07:58:

Hi Julia, Delight is a super soft wool yarn, used for socks, cardigans and jumpers, so it will not be scratchy against the skin. Happy knitting!

Martina 15.03.2018 - 08:54:

Warum wird Delight in so vielen Anleitungen mit Nadeln Nr. 5 oder sogar 5,5 verstrickt, wo es doch zur Garngruppe A gehört? Auf den Bildern hier sieht die Decke nicht so aus, als wäre sie besonders locker gearbeitet.

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 10:49:

Liebe Martina, diese Decke wird locker gestrickt, dh mit einer Maschenprobe von 19 M x 38 R kraus rechts gestrickt - Nadelgröße anpassen wenn nötig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, Est-ce que vous pourriez SVP me confirmer la taille des aiguilles ? Le modèle donné n°5 et le fil drops délicat n°2,5. Merci pour votre réponse et pour votre site plein d'idées Très bonne journée Marie-Hélène

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour Marie-Hélène, on tricote ici en "déjaugé", c'est-à-dire avec des aiguilles plus grosses que d'ordinaire pour cette laine, pour obtenir l'effet voulu - vous devez avoir 19 m x 38 rangs point mousse = 10 x 10 cm, ajustez la taille des aiguilles si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

I'm about to start knitting this blanket with the beautiful yarn you suggest. When changing colours between stripes do you advise cutting yarn and sewing in ends, or weaving yarn up the side as you go along?

DROPS Design 23.03.2017 kl. 13:08:

Dear Mrs Barron, since you are changing colours every 2 rows (every ridge), you can carry along the yarn you are not working with - as shown in the video below. You can also change colour inside the edge sts if you rather - see here. Happy knitting!

I am a intermediate crocheter. And a beginner knitter. I love the shawl the stripes are really pretty . And it looked light and airy. Gorgeous tops the pinks were nice. I love the spring colors of yarn . I like soft and silky yarns

Mooie kleurencombinatie. Het ziet er degelijk en tijdloos uit.

Essie Webber 28.12.2014 - 09:31:

(Cont.) ....there needs to be more items/garments made from *this* "dark" palette (w its soft color transitions preserved) to //anchor// such a large assemblage of pale color.

Essie Webber 28.12.2014 - 09:28:

Most importantly, this should be your keynote "dark" contrasting w the EXQUISITE collection of pastel/neutrals you have. The sea-sky blues mixed with the sand clay tile beige brown.... It is perfection in color and design on its own. But... ... I see your other color/dark contrasting items; clunky and "almost". Not the "dark" coherent anchor & counterpoint that underlies these pastels. Cont...
