Hello, I am Knitting baby duck. Regarding the arms, Can I knitt then around ( rundstickar) instead of using Five needles ? Kindest regards

Dear Mrs Ekblad, in this pattern you work the sleeves in the round either on double pointed needles as shown in the video or with a longer circular needle using magic loop technique. Happy knitting!

Je fais comme sur votre vidéo (mais ma laine est plus fine) mais je n'arrive pas à empêcher des "trous" au niveau des "angles" (ça marque un écart entre les mailles de début et de fin d'aiguille) auriez-vous un conseil pour empêcher ça et que le rendu soit nickel? merci d'avance

DROPS Design 12.03.2020 - 09:24:

Bonjour Dide, vous pouvez essayer cette technique pour éviter un décalage entre la première et la dernière maille du tour, ou bien ajuster ce décalage au moment de rentrer votre fil, au choix. Bon tricot!

Buongiorno, ma quando si avvia il primo giro bisogna lavorarlo sempre a maglia rasata? Come bisogna fare se devo lavorare a coste o a grana di riso? Quando completo il primo giro, tra la prima è l'ultima maglia mi resta sempre un buco, come posso evitare che accada? Grazie mille

Merci beaucoup

Als dit een tutorial is dan mag je nog wel wat leren. Dit gaat toch veel te snel als je geen idee hebt wat je moet doen.

Hi, how can I split 66 sts. on 4 needles?

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 - 09:48:

Dear Zuze, you can distribute the sts llike this for example: Needle 1: 16 sts, Needle 2: 17 sts, Needle 3: 16 sts, Needle 4: 17 sts. Happy knitting!

Natacha 18.01.2018 - 10:05:

Merci, mais sur les boutiques en ligne il s'agit d'aiguilles en bouleau clair et sur la vidéo il s'agit de bois brun ? Il n'existe plus les mêmes ? Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 18.01.2018 - 17:32:

Bonjour Natacha, effectivement, notre gamme a été renouvelée depuis, les nouvelles sont très agréables à utiliser. Bon tricot!

Natacha 17.01.2018 - 13:23:

Est il possible d acheter les mêmes aiguilles que sur la vidéo?

DROPS Design 18.01.2018 - 09:47:

Bonjour Natacha, vous trouverez nos aiguilles doubles pointes dans les magasins DROPS avec le petit logo dans la liste. Bon tricot!

Salve vorrei imparare a usare i ferri a doppia punta, il video è parecchio chiaro ciò che non riesco a capire è: devo lavorare sempre sul diritto del lavoro come con i ferri circolari? oppure si lavora anche il rovescio del lavoro? Grazie

DROPS Design 06.08.2016 - 20:16:

Buonasera Sara. Generalmente i ferri a doppia punta vengono usati per lavorare piccole circonferenze: guanti, maniche, scarpine per bimbi. Se la lavorazione è in tondo, si lavora solo sul diritto. Se invece, p.es., si usano i ferri a doppia punta per riprendere le m intorno allo scollo di un cardigan aperto, allora si lavorerà sia sul diritto che sul rovescio. Buon lavoro!

Sarah Franks 18.07.2016 - 13:15:

Hi, I have 4 needles in my packet of double pointed needles and I see your video uses 5. Do I need to buy two packets or can I put the pattern across 3 needles and use the 4th like you use your 5th needle? Thanks

DROPS Design 18.07.2016 - 23:57:

Dear Mrs Franks, you can use 4 needles instead of 5 without any problems. Happy knitting!

Rhonda Richter 12.08.2015 - 07:18:

The instructions ask for me to knit separately once I reached decrease for armhole in the round. How do I knit separately in the round? Do I knit with straight needles?

DROPS Design 12.08.2015 - 09:13:

Dear Mrs Richter, you can work back and forth on the double pointed needle (turn at the end of each row), or use a circular needle instead of double pointed needles. Happy knitting!

VERONICA 04.01.2015 - 21:03:

Hola, muy didactico el video. estoy facinada, con todos sus modelos, mil gracias

Pauline 28.11.2014 - 00:06:

Hi, I really want to knit the drops Little Red Riding slippers but cannot get away with double pointed needles. Am I able to knit these with circular needles and if so is there a specific tutorial I can watch? Many thanks Pauline ps I LOVE your website and patterns. x

DROPS Design 28.11.2014 - 09:28:

Dear Pauline, you can rather use magic loop instead of double pointed needles if you like to. Happy knitting!

Sunji 02.03.2014 - 10:18:

I love the cast on method using all of the four needles, that makes things so much easier!

Luisa 24.12.2013 - 00:33:

Beautiful and easy

Gary 27.03.2013 - 10:08:

Amazing how you knit that way, I've tried and tried. It wasn't how I was taught but it looks a faster more efficient method. I just can't for the life of me keep the wool over the end of my finger and feed it through, it keeps falling off - lol

Corina 25.11.2012 - 20:53:

Adorei o vídeo. É de uma clareza total. Agora sim posso fazer mais coisas com o tricô. Parabéns!

Las agujas de doble punto pueden sustituirse por agujas circulares?

Maria Del Carmen 18.06.2012 - 01:15:
