Buongiorno. Io sono principiante... non ho capito cosa vuol dire "lavorare due maglie nella prima maglia"... potete aiutarmi? grazie!

DROPS Design 20.03.2019 kl. 10:20:

Buongiorno Silvia. Deve lavorare due volte la stessa maglia, quindi lavora sia nel filo davanti della maglia che in quello dietro. Le alleghiamo il video che spiega come fare. Buon lavoro!

Hej, kan man blande Drops silk mohair ind for at få det mere blødt, let og luftigt? Smukt, bare lidt bange for, om det kradser

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 13:57:

Hej Kari, ja det kan du, sjalet vil bare blive lidt større. Du kan også strikke det i ren DROPS Kid-Silk. God fornøjelse!

Laurence 27.01.2019 - 14:37:

Je ne comprends pas la note au début de l’explication des rayures « changez de fil en fin de rang sur l’endroit «  Fait on référence au changement de couleur ou à un changement de fil à chaque rang pour un effet de couleur ?

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Laurence, on fait ici référence au changement de couleur. Bon tricot!

Lena Fritz-Poncia 07.10.2018 - 15:43:

Visst står det väl ändå fel på antalet garnnystan. Det måste väl ändå vara Fabel 161 rosa dröm som ska vara 100 g och inte Fabel 159 röd chili. Eller?

Lisbet Christiansen 06.06.2018 - 16:14:

Er det rett med 160 masker ? Ifølge oppskrift er ferdig lengde 130 cm

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 10:41:

Hei Lisbet. Dette sjalet strikkes skrått. Det legges opp 165 masker ( = den ene kortsiden av sjalet – måler ca 80 cm langs oppleggskanten). Ferdig lengde på sjalet er oppgitt som 180 cm, og bredden er 30 cm på det bredeste målt tvers over fra den ene siden til den andre . På bildet nr 2 kan du se hele sjalet brettet ut. God fornøyelse.

I ran out of color 161before the end also

Louise Maria Lindblom 12.04.2018 - 20:02:

50 g of colour 161 is not enough...

Louise Maria Lindblom 24.03.2018 - 17:48:

På de gulrosa rænderna står det att men ska upprepa øver de «næsta 68 varven =38 varv rætstickning. Det ska antagligen stå 68, inte 38.

Als afmeting staat er 180 x 30 cm. Klopt dit wel? Als ik het aantal naalden optel kom ik aan 65 cm voor de korte kant ipv 30 cm. Wat zijn de exacte maten voor deze sjaal?

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 15:48:

Hallo Katrin, De afmeting is ongeveer 180 x 130 cm. Omdat de sjaal schuin wordt gebreid (met meerderingen en minderingen aan de zijkanten) kun je niet uitgaan van het aantal naalden.

Sharon 25.01.2018 - 03:54:

On the non-pico side, on row 9, when you start the row with a yarn over, do you use 1 color or both?

DROPS Design 25.01.2018 kl. 08:36:

Dear Sharon, there are no picots worked on this shawl, you work in diagonal inc 1 st and dec 1 st every RS row and dec 1 st every WS row - shawl is worked with only 1 strand of yarn (= 1 colour at a time). Happy knitting!
