Liebes Drops- Team, die Mütze sieht wunderschön aus, toller Stil. Habe nur ein kleine Verständnis- Frage zur Anleitung: was bedeutet: " mit einem Faden jeder beiden Qualitäten..." Heißt das, die Mütze wird mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt? Vielen Dank im Voraus! Rebecca Ps. Danke, dass es Drops Design gibt:) Habe schon viele schöne Sachen von Euch gestrickt

Liebe Frau Burghardt, ja genau, die Mütze wird mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt, bzw mit 1 Faden Alpaca + 1 Faden Kid-Silk (Mascheprobe = 22 M x 30 Reihen mit den beiden Fäden). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Never mind -- I just found the pattern for the hat. Thanks!

Kate 25.10.2018 - 23:53:

I have read the pattern and all the comments, but I cannot find complete instructions for making the hat. Could you please help me with that? Thank you!

Hi Kate, If you search for hat in the search box, the pattern for the one you want is there - pattern no: G-022b. Happy knitting!

Salve vorrei realizzare il cappello... il diagramma del motivo indica solo i ferri di andata ? nel senso che il ritorno si lavora per come si trovano grazie

DROPS Design 18.01.2018 kl. 09:04:

Buongiorno Franca. Nel diagramma, trova tutti i ferri del motivo, sia quelli di andata che quelli di ritorno. La prima riga viene lavorata sul rovescio del lavoro. Le prime due righe del diagramma sono spiegate in dettaglio nel testo. Buon lavoro!

Do you have additional detailed instructions for the hat in this pattern. Each time I try to make this hat I have extra st on the cast on needle. I also would need info on where to do the cabling and how, front or back. I would love to make this hat but need additional information please!

DROPS Design 07.11.2017 kl. 16:01:

Dear Mrs Reisner, see previous answer for diagram and number of sts. Please note that 1st row in diagram (= and every row from WS) is read from the bottom corner on the left side towards the right - read all rows from RS from the right towards the left. When diagram has been worked 1 time in height, repeat from row 1. Happy knitting!

Evelyn Reisner 07.11.2017 - 15:05:

Hello, I have tried to start to knit the hat a couple of times and both times there were still st on the cast on needle after following the the instructions for the first row, am I to knit the final st as garter st? Also do you have additional instructions for where to make the cables? Do you have more detailed instructions for the hat? I would love to make this hat, it looks beautiful but I just need more details. Thank you, Evelyn

DROPS Design 07.11.2017 kl. 16:00:

Dear Mrs Reisner, work the 52 sts for the head band as follows: K1 (edge st), P 5, K 3, P 3, Diagram M.2 over the next 34 sts (= K3, P3, K4, P6, K2, P6, K4, P3, K3), P 5, K 1 = 1+5+3+3+34+5+1= 52 sts. The video below shows how to work a cable - this is a generic video, ie put the number of sts given in theh pattern onto the cable needle and put this needle in front of/behind work as explained in diagram. Happy knitting!

Question: J'aimerais savoir (modèle DROPS66-15, que veut dire 3 mailles lis au point mousse?

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Mme André, il fallait lire: R 2 (= endroit) : 1 m lis au point mousse, 5 m end, M2, 3 m end, 3 m env, 5 m end, 1 m lis au point mousse. Ce rang a été corrigé, merci. Bon tricot!

Benoist 29.02.2016 - 20:26:

Merci beaucoup pour votre explication. Bonne semaine J.

Benoist 29.02.2016 - 09:12:

Qu'est-ce que vous appeler bordure roulotée ? I-cord ? Merci pour votre réponse. J'aime beaucoup vos modèles.

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 10:07:

Bonjour Mme Benoist, dans le bandeau du chapeau, on a 5 m jersey envers et 1 m lis de chaque côté de la torsade, on va les replier sur l'envers pour former une petite bordure roulottée, et relever ensuite les mailles du haut du chapeau après ces mailles pour que cette bordure soit bien visible sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!
