Hello I wonder how much is needed for 1square? I want to make in different colors.

Dear Nicole, we unfortunately are not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. You are welcome to contact your store for any individual assistance, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Kan tæppet strikkes i 100% bomuldsgarn ? og hvilke af jeres bomuldsgarn anbefaler i ? Passer antal gram stadig hvis man vælger bomuldsgarn hvor der er 50 gram pr. nøgle ?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 09:52:

Hei Tina. Ja, teppet kan strikkes i bomulsgarn. Du kan velge mellom å bruke 2 tråder fra garngruppe A eller evnt 1 tråd fra garngruppe C, se vår oversikt over våre garn og hvilken garngruppe de tilhører. Bare husk at strikkefastheten må stemme med det som er oppgitt i oppskriften. Her er en link hvor du selv kan regne ut hvor mye garn du trenger når det byttes garn: https://www.garnstudio.com/lesson.php?id=14&cid=1" target="blank"> Omregn garnmengde fra en kvalitet til en annen. God Fornøyelse!

Liebes Drops-Team, ichhabe große Schwierigkeiten mit Quadrat A bzw dessen Vorlage: Wie funktionieren Reihe 9 und 10? Ich habe das Muster jetzt 10x begonnen und jedes Mal habe ich nach Reihe 9 zu viele Maschen und das Muster in Reihe 10 stimmt dadurch nicht mehr. Vorher habe ich Quadrat 4 ohne Probleme stricken können.

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 10:25:

Liebe Nemi, am Ende A.1A stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1A zs mit den 2 ersten M in A.1B, dann stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1B zs mit den 2 ersten M in nächsten A.1B, und bei A.1C stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1B zs mit den 2 ersten M in A.1C. Beachten Sie, daß Sie immer die richtige Maschenanzahl (zB mit Markierung) in jedem Rapport haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Salve, se volessi usare un filato del gruppo C, quanto me ne servirebbe? Grazie

Buonasera Giulia. A questo link trova le indicazioni utili per sostituire due capi di filato del gruppo A con 1 capo del gruppo C. Buon lavoro!

Hi all, Regarding answer about row 9 of A.1A-A.1C: 'DROPS Design 14.09.2017 kl. 09:12' This leaves me with 12 stitches I miss in somewhere. This is the same as row 7 as in A.2A-A.2C. I've 10 stitches over which aren't in the pattern. Would you be so kind to explain to me what I'm doing wrong, as I lost it. Thank you so much.

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 09:07:

Dear Katherine, 1st square is worked as follows over 55 sts: 3 sts in garter st, A.1A over next 12 sts, A.1B over next 24 sts (= 2 repeats in width), A.1C over the next 13 sts, 3 sts in garter st. Work 2nd square as follows: 3 sts in garter st, A.2A over the next 3 sts, A.2B over the next 42 sts (= 7 repeats of 6 sts) and A.2C over the next 3 sts and 3 sts in garter st. On row 7 in A.2 work the last st in A.2A/A.2B tog with first st in A.2B/Next A.2B or first st in A.2C (the YO before dec = last st in A.2A/A.2B). Happy knitting!

Andrea 16.09.2017 - 10:54:

Hallo, ich wollte soeben die Wolle für diese Decke bestellen und habe Elkes Frage gelesen. Von daher würde es mich brennend interessieren, ob hier der Preis falsch berechnet wurde oder die Menge. Liebe Grüße Andrea

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 08:49:

Liebe Andrea, Sie brauchen insgesamt 2x 400 g Alpaca (= 16 Knäuel), der Preis wurde angepasst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Elke 15.09.2017 - 22:17:

Liebes Drops-Team, hat sich bei diesem Modell ein Fehler bei der Berechnung der Garnkosten eingeschlichen? Aus meiner Sicht werden 16 Knäule benötigt, der von Ihnen angegebenen Preis entspricht aber nur 8 Knäule? Oder wird weniger Woller benötigt? Viele Grüße Elke

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 08:39:

Liebe Elke, es sind insgesamt 16 Knäuel: 8 Knäuel in jeweils Farbe 100 und Farbe 9020. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Thank you so much,

Susan 13.09.2017 - 20:24:

It is 30 years since I last picked up a pair of knitting needles,and I had only knitted with word patterns. I have managed the chart for the repeat for rows 1 - 8 but can't get my head around the repeat section of row 9..... Could someone please help

DROPS Design 14.09.2017 kl. 09:12:

Hi Susan, I assume you are on the first square, so working A.1A - A.1C? If this is the case, you start row 9 with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, then K2 together,1 yarn over between stitches, K3, 1 yarn over, K2 together, 1 yarn over, K2 together, 1 yarn over, K2, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, pass slipped stitch over knitted stitch, 1 yarn over, K3, 1 yarn over, K2 together, 1 yarn over, K2 together, K2, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, pass slipped stitch over knitted stitch, 1 yarn over, K3, 1 yarn over, K2 together, 1 yarn over, K2 together K2, 1 yarn over, K2 together and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Hope this helps. Happy knitting!
