Jeg vil gerne strikke tæppet i målene 160 x 200 cm - nogen, der kan hjælpe med maskeantal og antal garnnøgler ?

DROPS Design 28.06.2017 kl. 10:01:

Hej Jette, hvis du har 8 m på 10 cm som der står i opskriften, så skal du slå 128 masker op og da tæppet bliver næsten dobbelt så stort, så skal du også bruge næsten dobbelt så mange nøgler :)

Hello, I have circular needles size 10. Would this be ok? Would It make it smaller? Should I increase the stitches?

Quisiera saber porque no puedo ver la explicación de los modelos ? Acaso debo comprarlos ? Antes si podía verlos y de hecho he tejido varias prendas para mi a través de las explicaciones,no tengo tienda alguna,lo aclaro,solo saco ideas para uso personal,agradecería recibir respuesta,desde ya gracias

Hola Noemi, los patrones de DROPS siempre están disponibles de forma gratuita. No es necesario pagar por ellos. Buscas el modelo por nº o abres las revistas y pinchas en ir al patrón y allí debe aparecer la explicación, salvo que te refieras a algún patrón que esté aún sin traducir al español, (sería un patrón antiguo y estamos trabajando para tenerlos todos pronto. Los nuevos están traducidos todos)

Sun & Sand measurements say "Width: approx. 90 cm / 3 1/2'' Length: approx. 132 cm / 52'' Obviously not three and a half inches width. What is it?

DROPS Design 06.05.2016 kl. 09:03:

Dear Nancy, the blanket is 90 cm in width, ie approx. 35.43 inch - see here. Happy knitting!

Vous utiliser une broche circulaire #12, pour nous au Québec ça équivaut à quelle grosseur ou si nous avons la même équivalence? Merci et bonne journée
