Hello, do you have the written instructions for this pattern anywhere- that is, as opposed to the chart? I don't know how to follow charts but would love to knit this!

Dear Michelle, we only have diagram to this pattern, start reading the diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left working A.1A, then repeating A.1B and then work A.1C, and from the left towards the right from WS: work A.1C, then repeat A.1B and finish with A.1A - see diagram key for all symbols. Happy knitting!

When I look at the picture there doesn't appear to be any holes in the blanket yet I find on the pattern there is. I don't want to carry on until I know the pattern is correct. Your help would be appreciated thank you

Dear Jacqueline, diagrams are correct, they do have some holes inside/outside the 3 sts worked in stocking st in each pattern repeat - you can also see them on the picture. Just make a swatch working the 3 diagrams to see how it will look. Happy knitting!

Voor de grotere maat deken is er meer garen nodig. Heb met 300 gram gebreid. Kom op 62 cm lengte uit, niet 80.

Christine 13.10.2018 - 16:00:

Après les 3 côtes mousses (=6 rangs), le premier rang avec diagramme est sur l'endroit du tricot. Comment faire 3 mailles ensemble sur l'envers puisque l'on est sur un rang endroit? Merci.

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 08:44:

Bonjour Christine, on laisse le fil devant l'ouvrage (on vient de tricoter 3 m env au 1er rang), on pique l'aiguille droite dans les 3 mailles suivantes de l'aiguille gauche et on les tricote toutes les 3 ensemble à l'envers. Bon tricot!

CREVEL 13.10.2018 - 10:23:

Bonjour, Je n'arrive pas à reproduire le motif. Après les 6 premiers rangs, je commence le motif sur l'endroit comme indiqué. Aussi, les points des 3 diagrammes se font sur l'envers...Le premier rang est vu sur l'endroit mais se réalise sur l'envers. Merci de votre aide. Le correctif du 9/10 propose une maille enverrs sur l'endroit mais en fait on est sur un rang envers... Mille merci pour votre aide. Christine

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 08:32:

Bonjour Mme Crevel, le 1er rang du diagramme se tricote sur l'endroit ansi: A.1A (= 1 m end, 1 double jeté, 2 m end, 3 m env, 3 m ens à l'env (voir vidéo, répétez A.1B (= 3 m env, 2 m end, 1 double jeté, 1 m end, 1 double jeté, 2 m end, 3 m env, 3 m ens à l'env) et terminez par A.1C (= 3 m env, 2 m end, 1 double jeté, 1 m end). Sur l'envers, tricotez toutes les mailles à l'envers, tricotez un seul des jetés. Les mailles avec des étoiles + les 3 m ens à l'env sont des mailles point mousse (tricotées tout en mailles envers). Bon tricot!

Penelope 08.10.2018 - 22:55:

Shouldn’t the star squares be purl from right side? That seems to be what it says in the Norwegian version.

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:34:

Dear Penelope, it looks you are right, Norwegian says to purl these sts from RS - the pattern will be edited asap, thanks for your feedback. Happy knitting!

Diny 20.09.2018 - 23:13:

In het patroon moeten de steken met het sterretje recht op de verkeerde kant gebreid worden, betekent dit dat ze averecht op de goede kant gebreid worden?

DROPS Design 21.09.2018 kl. 08:35:

Dag Diny, Ja, dat klopt helemaal; recht op de verkeerde kant en averecht op de goede kant. Ik zal het even aanpassen, zodat het wat duidelijker is. Veel breiplezier!

Elja 15.06.2018 - 20:47:

Hi, after the first 3 ridges it says to work the right side of the pattern, but the first row of the pattern looks like it's written for the wrong side. How should I proceed? Thank you.

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 07:59:

Dear Elja, you first work 3 ridges, ie knit 6 rows starting from RS (= last row will be worked from WS), then start working A.1A and A.1B on next row from RS. Happy knitting!

Tonje 30.03.2018 - 23:11:

Hva menes med å strikke vrang fra retten?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 12:11:

Hej Tonje, Når du strikker fra retsiden, strikker du de masker som er markeret som vrang fra retsiden. God fornøjelse!

Ula 30.03.2018 - 16:28:

Dzień dobry, nie jestem pewna, czy dobrze rozumiem schemat. Gwiazdka w pierwszym rzędzie oznacza, że dane oczko w pierwszym rzędzie przerabiam na prawo, a w drugim to oczko przerabiam także na prawo, a pozostale oczka w tym rzedzie na lewo? I analogicznie w pozostalych rzędach?

DROPS Design 30.03.2018 kl. 18:59:

Witaj Ulu! Zrozumiałaś bardzo dobrze, jest dokładnie tak jak piszesz. Pozdrawiamy!
