Jeg kunne godt tænke mig at strikke denne i sommer udgave f. Ex. I bomuld eller merino-bomuld blanding. Er det helt dårlig idé? Som let øvet strikker har jeg lidt svært med at vurdere det :)

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 11:35:

Hej Beate, Den vil jo blive ret tung i bomuld i forhold til modellen på billedet. Du kan bruge dobbelt tråd DROPS Sky men sørg for at overholde strikkefastheden som står i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Grete Andersen 18.02.2019 - 15:36:

Hej Er lige startet, det undrer mig meget hvorfor I anbefaler rundpinde??? Med det maskeantal der anvendes er der da ikke brug for det, almindelige pinde rækker Venlig hilsen Grete

Bonjour Suis novice. Que signifie une m lis de chaque côté ? Merci beaucoup Anne

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 00:07:

Bonjour Anne. 1 m lis de chaque côté de l'ouvrage (maille de bord) est tricotee toujour a l'endroit (point mousse). Cela facilitera la realisations des coutures a la fin. Bon travail!

Bonjour Suis novice. Que signifie une m lis de chaque côté ? Merci beaucoup Anne

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 00:10:

Bonjour Anne. On a deja donne la reponse sur cette question. Bon travail!

Annie 02.02.2019 - 13:15:

Beste Drops team. Bedankt voor alle mooie patronen en modellen. Het heeft me al veel plezier bezorgd. Ik heb 1 vraagje/opmerking : soms is het nodig om de achterkant of de voorkant van het model op foto te zien en dat is niet altijd het geval. Zoals hier op patroon 170/33 zou het wel handig zijn om te zien hoe hoog de splitjes komen. Het staat wel op het patroon maar een foto zegt altijd meer. Hartelijk dank.

Donna Williams 23.12.2018 - 06:42:

I made a gauge swatch. I was really off in my row count. 11sts and 18 rows = 4” in drops melody blocked. 9mm needle. Pattern calls for 10 x12. That’s a huge difference. Suggestions?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 08:48:

Dear Mrs Williams, try a new swatch with larger needles, trying to not tighten too much the stitches in height to keep the correct tension. See different ways to work K/P stitches under the video sections. Your DROPS store may also have some tips & advices for you and will share them with you even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Gerd Hansen 12.11.2018 - 09:45:

Hei. Det står ikke noe om hvordan en skal strikke halsen, altså hvor mange masker som skal plukkes opp rundt v-halsen. Er det feil i oppskriften?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:01:

Hei Gerd. Du strikker 4 masker rille mot halsen på begge skuldrene, dette er halskanten. God fornøyelse

Claire 21.09.2018 - 20:35:

Bonsoir, Auriez vous une idée du nombre de pelote nécessaire pour une taille S? Et pourquoi des aiguilles circulaires ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 07:57:

Bonjour Claire, vous trouverez la quantité nécessaire pour chaque taille sous l'en-tête du modèle, soit ici en taille S 150 g DROPS Melody / 50 g la pelote Melody = 3 pelotes. On utilise ici des aiguilles circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles, vous pouvez ainsi utiliser des aiguilles droites, mais pensez à bien vérifier votre tension car vos mailles seront plus serrées. Bon tricot!

Morgan ELEGOET 17.05.2018 - 09:26:

Bonjour, Merci pour tous vos conseils et informations. Cela m'aide beaucoup dans mes réalisations.
