Hallo, ich würde das Tuch gern mit Alpaka Brushed Silk stricken und passend dazu eine Mütze. Ist die Mütze dann dick genug, (gegebenenfalls mit 2 Fäden gestrickt)?

Neele 06.12.2018 - 13:52:

Hallo, ich möchte dieses Tuch mit dem Garn Brushed Alpaca Silk stricken, auf der Banderole ist eine Nadelstärke von 5 (mm) angegeben. Weshalb soll lt. Anleitung die Nadelstärke 8 verwandt werden? Oder wird mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt? Wenn ja: wo steht das in der Anleitung? Danke.

Liebe Neele, das Tuch wird nur einfädig und locker gestrickt, prüfen Sie zuerst die Maschenprobe (= 12 M x 26 Reihe kraus rechts gestrickt = 10 x 10 cm) und die Nadelgröße anpassen wenn es nötig ist. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Buongiorno, voglio realizzarlo con BRUSHED ALPACA SILK. I ferri n. 8 mm. non sono troppo grandi? il lavoro è con uno o due fili?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 06:29:

Buongiorno Lucetta, lo scialle è lavorato ad un capo di filato. Air e Brushed Alpaca Silk sono 2 filati che si prestano a questa lavorazione molto morbida con i ferri grossi. Se il campione corrisponde può lavorarlo tranquillamente. Buon lavoro!

Ciao Cinzia, io realizzo spesso e volentieri i modelli drops con i loro filati. vienimi a trovare nel mio negozio online su etsy (UnSoldinoDiCacio) e contattami se vuoi che realizzi qualcosa per te.

Cinzia 15.11.2018 - 21:58:

Sono bellissimi ma purtroppo sono negata infatti ho fatto anche la domanda se sono in vendita buona serata o giornata a tutte Cinzia

Cinzia 15.11.2018 - 21:51:

Ma li vendete anche?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 08:32:

Buonasera Cinzia. I capi realizzati non vengono venduti. Può chiedere al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia se la indirizza ad una magliaia che può realizzare per lei il capo che le interessa.

Where to do the increases? I don't see it in the instructions. Veo que a Sonia de Espana le dicen rows 1 - 2= 1 HEB and rows 3-4 = 2 HEB, but where? thanks, gracias!

DROPS Design 13.09.2018 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Costello, you will repeat row 1-4, ie you will increase 1 stitch at the beg of row 1 and 2 and 2 sts at the beg of row 3 and 4 as described (= 1 YO= 1 stitch increased). Happy knitting!

Jeanna 28.07.2018 - 20:02:

If you love this pattern but are wanting to do this in a different gauge and yarn which I often do with crochet shawls but a new knitter so the yarn is cotton and silk using a US 6 needles I know this would be thinner and produce a different look but would it be ok to try it or do you the same pattern in smaller gauge?

DROPS Design 29.07.2018 kl. 10:11:

Dear Jeanna, if you want to use a different yarn you'll have to swatch it and compare with the gauge required. For a better personal help you can contact your favourite DROPS store. Happy knitting!

Leigh 25.04.2018 - 01:33:

I’m a beginner but I have knitted the whole pattern and it’s beautiful, however, how does one bind off with double yarn?

DROPS Design 25.04.2018 kl. 08:40:

Dear Leigh, just use 2 strands of yarn just as once (= 1 strand each end of the ball or 1 strand of 2 balls) to bind off. Happy knitting!
