REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Now work as follows over A.1: * Work A.2 over 2 sts, A.3 over 6 sts, A.4 over 2 sts *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 6 repetitions on round. When diagram has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 120 sts on needle. Continue to work as last round in A.2 over A.2, work A.3 as before and work as last round in A.4 over A.4 until piece measures 19 cm / 7½'' in total, adjust so that last round is a round without YO.

When working the hat I end up with 45 stitches, not 60. I have tried this twice and still end up with 45. Is this an error in the instructions? If not I don't know what I am doing incorrectly. Any suggestions?

DROPS Design 07.07.2017 kl. 09:27:

Dear Pam, you are working A.1 (= 2sts on 1st round) a total of 6 times in the round, and you will inc every other round, when A.1 has been worked, there are 10 sts in each A.1 = 10sts x 6 = 60 sts. Happy knitting!

Emily 22.08.2016 - 11:07:

Thank you for the answer. I still don't understand how I should turn the piece and work still the same pattern. It will then be messed up won't it? Sorry I am new to knitting

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 13:13:

Dear Emily, after you have worked the round before the one with the arrow, work the first 3 sts in diagram (= P2, K1), then turn to work from WS (ie you won't work in the round anymore for some rows) and continue as before but now read diagram from the left towards the right on rows from WS starting with P1, K2, then work last row in diagram from the left towards the right and work now alternately from RS (rows with YO and dec) and from WS. Happy knitting!

Emily 22.08.2016 - 11:02:

Emily 22.08.2016 - 10:34:

Could you please explain by the wrist warmers what is meant : turn the piece and work back and forth? And what row should I start working back and forth? Is it by the row with the arrow or the row after that? Thanks

DROPS Design 22.08.2016 kl. 10:57:

Dear Emily, start working back and forth with first row in A.7 - see also answer below. Happy knitting!

Dear Emily, work wrist warmer until it measures approx. 14 cm (adjust length so that last round is last round in A.7 (= the one with the arrow) - you will now create the opening for thumb working back and forth for some rows: work the first 3 sts in diagram, turn and work now in rows following diagram as before (nb: remember to work now diagram back and forth) for 3 repeats in height. Then join again in the round for the top of wrist warmers (there is now a hole for thumb). Happy knitting!

Jardé 11.06.2016 - 13:56:

Bonjour, Je pense avoir décelé une erreur. Au début il est dit de prendre des aiguilles doubles pointes 4 et quelques lignes plus bas on nous demande de changer pour des aiguilles doubles pointes 4 également .

DROPS Design 06.09.2016 kl. 13:21:

Bonjour Mme Jardé, on commence avec 3 aiguilles doubles pointes 4 puis on continue avec 4 aiguilles doubles pointes, puis avec l'aiguille circulaire 4 (le texte a été modifié pour être plus clair). Bon tricot!

Risoue 15.12.2015 - 20:36:

Suite à votre réponse du 15/12,je vous remercie mais j'émets toujours le même doute, en lisant l'intitulé du diagramme à côté du petit carré noir et petit rond il est noté= 1 m.envers sur l'endroit et 1 maille endroit sur l'envers, donc en toute logique, le 2ème tour se trouve sur l'envers de l'ouvrage. juste ou pas juste??

DROPS Design 16.12.2015 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Mme Risoue, quand on tricote en rond, on tricote toujours sur l'endroit, donc on va tricoter le petit carré noir (2ème symbole de la légende) tous les tours à l'envers. Ceci s'applique lorsque l'on tricote les mitaines en allers et retours. Pour le bonnet, le tour de cou, et les mitaines, quand on tricote en rond, on tricote toujours sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Risoue 14.12.2015 - 19:50:

Bjr Mme, j'ai tout démonté, et reviens sur votre réponse du 05/11/ pour le 2ème tour ( sur explic.du diagramme; différent si endroit ou envers du tricot A3 es-ce que ce n'est pas 2m end.3m.env.2m.end.?? puisque je suis sur l'envers au 2ème tour. merci pour votre aide. Cordialement risoue

DROPS Design 15.12.2015 kl. 08:44:

Bonjour Mme Risoue, A.3 se tricote en rond pour le bonnet et pour le tour de cou, au 1er tour, on a 2 m env, 1 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end; au 2ème tour: 2 m env, 3 m end, 2 m env, au 3ème tour: 2 m env, 3 m end, passer la 1ère m par-dessus les 2 dernières m, 2 m env, au 4ème tour: 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env. Bon tricot!

Risoue 05.11.2015 - 11:25:

Merci pour votre réponse de ce jour, cependant sur la photo, on voit aussi des triangles au point jersey, ne manquerait-il pas qq chose ds les explications? autre que les diagrammes

DROPS Design 05.11.2015 kl. 14:07:

Bonjour Mme Risoue, le tour de cou se tricote de haut en bas: quand on a tricoté 10 cm ainsi avec 1 m de A.9, on tricote A.10 au-dessus de A.9 (au 1er rang de A.10 = 1 jeté, 1 m end, 1 jeté) - A.10 correspond au triangle jersey entre les motifs. Bon tricot!

Risoue 04.11.2015 - 21:47:

T DE COU.A8 au dessus des 4M suivantes?? dessus de quoi?si je suis le diagramme ds les explications: A8 au-dessus des 4m suiv.A3 au dessus des 6M;suivantesA9 au dessus de la m.suiv;ET a3 Etc. répéter de *à* ça c'est pour 1 rang complet, le rgs suivant. 3m.passer le lère m.par-dessus les 2dernières m.et 2m.end c'est aussi pour le rgs complet ?3ème rgs sur l'end: 2 m.env 3m end.2env.répété de * à* et 4ème rgs sur l'env.: 2 m end.1m.env.1jeté 1m.env.2 m;end.répéter *= à10cm h

DROPS Design 05.11.2015 kl. 08:51:

Bonjour Mme Risoue, Vous tricotez les différents diagrammes en même temps: 4 m en A.8 (= 1 m env, 2 m end, 1 m env), puis 6 m en A.3 (= 1er rang: 2 m env, 1 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end, 2 m env), puis la maille de A.9 (= 1 m end), et encore 1 fois les 6 m de A.3 = 17 m que vous répétez jusqu'à la fin du tour, soit 6-7 fois. Au tour suivant, tricotez le 2ème tour de chaque diagramme, soit pour A.3: 2 m env, 3 m end, 2 m env. Au tour suivant, tricotez le 3ème tour de chaque diagramme. Continuez ainsi en répétant les diagrammes en hauteur jusqu'à ce que l'ouvrage mesure 10 cm. Bon tricot!
