Ich möchte den Poncho mit einer Baby merinowolle in s stricken. Wie viele Knäuel bzw. Gramm und Lauflänge benötige ich dann?

Maryk 01.02.2019 - 12:46:

I have now knitted three of these and about to knit a fourth. I have found all three have been just right after knitting but have stretched very quickly and a lot in wearing. Would you have any tips on this.

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 13:52:

Dear Maryk, different yarn have different qualities/characteristics and this may have an influence on the shape of garment. Please contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per mail or telephone, they may have tipps for you.

Buongiorno, quanti gomitoli di lana ci vogliono per realizzare un poncio taglia xs e taglia s. E quali sono le misure del rettangolo? Grazie attendo vostra risposta Ciao Daniela

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 11:25:

Buongiorno Daniela. La taglia più piccola proposta è la S/M, per la quale occorrono 150 g di Delight per ognuno dei tre colori proposti (quindi 9 gomitoli) oppure 500 g di Alpaca (10 gomitoli). Il rettangolo misura (sempre per la taglia S/M) 40 cm x 120 cm. Per le quantità occorrenti per una taglia più piccola, può chiedere consiglio al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Posso avere le misure per una bambina di 8 anni? Mille grazie

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 13:35:

Buongiorno Mariarca, può provare a guardare lo schema in fondo alla pagina per vedere se la misura più piccola può andar bene, altrimenti per un aiuto così personalizzato si può rivolgere al suo rivenditore DROPS di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour, si je tricote avec la laine alpaca mix est-ce que je dois toujours utiliser trois fils en même temps ? Merci

DROPS Design 03.06.2018 kl. 23:08:

Bonsoir Letizia! Oui, vous devez toujours utiliser trois fils, en même temps. Bon tricot!

Linnéa 10.04.2018 - 21:45:

Hej, hur lång mäter ponchon på bredden? Ser att den är 120 cm lång innan montering, men undrar hur mycket den mäter på kortsidan. Tack! /Linnéa

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 15:59:

Hej Linnéa du hittar måttet i måttskissen under själva mönstret. Lycka till :)

Perraut 10.12.2017 - 11:43:

Pour les couleurs , on doit prendre les 3 pelotes de laines différentes et les tricoter ensemble ou les tricoter les unes apres les autres ?

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 10:29:

Bonjour Mme Perraut, on tricote avec 1 fil de chacune des couleurs Delight en même temps (= soit 1 pelote coloris 02 + 1 pelote coloris 17 + 1 pelote coloris 18). Bon tricot!

Maryk 20.11.2017 - 18:50:

I have done a few of them now and find the 'delight' brand works much better than 'alpaca'.

Andrea 31.08.2017 - 03:25:

After 1st 2 rows you indicate repeat second row. Would that be for the rest of project. Or am I alternating rows 1 and 2 throughout.

DROPS Design 31.08.2017 kl. 06:22:

Dear Andrea, the piece is knitted with seed stitch, where you always knit a purl stitch over the knit stitch of the previous row, and a knit stitch over a purls stitch of the previous row. So you repeat the 2. row through the whole piece. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

CORINNE BARTHEL 19.08.2017 - 22:01:

Bonsoir, Pouvons nous tricoter ce modèle avec des aiguilles droites ?. Si oui quel numéro 9 ? Merci. corinne

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Corinne. Oui, vous pouvez tricoter avec les aiguilles droites. Vérifiez d'avoir le même échantillon que celui indiqué dans les explications. Bon tricot!
