REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 6-7-10 cm / 2½"-2 3/4"-4'', dec 1 st in each side - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) a total of 6-6-6 times and then every other row (i.e. every row from RS) a total of 3-3-2 times = 27-29-33 sts on needle. After last dec K 1 row from WS, piece measures approx. 12-13-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5"-6". Put piece aside.

Hello, you don't have diagrams so I'm trying to figure out what the first piece is--is it the heel of the slipper? Also, when you say "set aside" should I keep the stitches live by placing them on a holder or do I cast off? Also, when starting the flap, how many rows of the cable do I knit before attaching it to the first piece? Would it be possible to do a video for this? Thank you

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:12:

Dear Knitwitch, first piece worked is the beg of the slipper from mid heel towards the foot - when it is worked, slip sts aside without casting off. Cast on the new sts for flap (= work A.1 one time in height = 1 cable), then work all sts together in the round to the end. Happy knitting!

Viv 28.12.2018 - 20:44:

After completing the first piece it says set piece aside— do I bind off or just place the remaining stitches on a holder? Can you do a video for attaching flap to first piece to begin working in the round?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 12:12:

Dear Viv, after completing the first piece you just slip stitches on a thread or a stitch holder, do not cast off. work now the flap and you will then work flap and stitches from thread/stitch holder together in the round. Happy knitting!

GeeGee 27.12.2018 - 19:20:

I wish you had a better explanation for attaching the flap. the way this pattern is written up its a bit confusing. it'd be better to have a video explanation

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 12:17:

Dear GeeGee, after you have worked the flap, slip the 27-29-33 stitches from thread/stitch holder back on needles and work in the round starting on first st on flap from RS work A.1 as before, but work the last st from flap together with the next st twisted. Happy knitting!

Marie-France 24.02.2017 - 18:37:

Bonjour. Je ne sais pas quelle taille tricoter pour ces chaussons. Je dois les tricoter pour une collègue qui chausse du 40 et son pied mesure 25,8, ce qui ne correspond pas à la longueur de pied du 38/40 (24 cm) ni à 41/43 (27). D'autant plus que les chaussons vont voir leurs dimensions rétrécir après feutrage. Pouvez-vous m'aider s'il vous plaît ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 05.04.2017 kl. 10:35:

Bonjour Marie-France, vous pouvez tricoter un échantillon et le feutrer pour vérifier les mesures avant/après feutrage et ajuster si besoin. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider si besoin, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Ich bin noch Anfängerin würde gerne die Hausschuhe ohne das Zopfmuster stricken, geht das und wenn ja wie viele Maschen sind dann in den jeweiligen Reihen?

DROPS Design 14.12.2016 kl. 14:10:

Liebe Ella, leider können wir nicht jedes Modell nach jedem Geschmack anpassen, Zöpfe sind aber einfach zu stricken, siehe Video unten (und immer Diagram folgen, Video zeigt nur Technik). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ohjeessa ei ole kaavio kuvaa. En ymmärrä mistä mittaan (Kun työn pituus tohvelin luomisreunasta mitattuna on 20-22-25 cm), mikä katsotaan luomisreunaksi.

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 16:36:

Tässä tarkoitetaan itse tohvelin luomisreunaa (ei läpän).

Carry 03.11.2016 - 15:52:

Hallo drops team. Er staat om de 4 naalden minderen en tussen haakjes om de naald minderen dat is iedere 2 " naald wat is de bedoeling? Groetjes

DROPS Design 04.11.2016 kl. 14:52:

Hoi Carry. Het is hetzelfde: om de 4 naalden minderen is hetzelfde als om de nld minderen aan de goede kant.

Simone Vollmer 01.08.2016 - 21:34:

Hallo Miteinander, beim Zopfmuster habe ich dann 2 M die übrig sind, bei grösse 35-37. Danke für eure Antwort

DROPS Design 03.08.2016 kl. 16:01:

Liebe Simone, wenn Sie abnehmen und zusammenstricken wie in der Anleitung beschrieben, haben Sie zum Schluss in Grösse S noch 8 Maschen übrig, die Sie dann mit dem Faden zusammenziehen.

Gail 28.02.2016 - 01:59:

I believe there is an error in the cable instructions. It looks like it should be 3 stitches on cable needle, not 2. Love the look of the pattern. Am knitting away.

DROPS Design 02.03.2016 kl. 10:20:

Dear Gail, correction to symbols #3 and #4 has been now made, thank you. Happy knitting!
