Buongiorno. Avete un video che mostra come unire due lati lavorati entrambi a punto riso doppio senza vivagno, quindi i lati alternano dritti e rovesci? Grazie in anticipo!

Buongiorno Aissela. Potrebbe provare con la cucitura a punto materasso, come spiegato nel video che alleghiamo. Buon lavoro!

Is it also possible to crochet two knitted pieces together (e.g. knitted parts of pullover or sweater or a sleeve)? If so, which type of crochet stitches is the best?

DROPS Design 10.11.2015 - 10:09:

Dear Petra, you can crochet together 2 knitted pieces, with a row of sl st or dc (US-sc), from RS or from WS depending on the effect you'd like to get. Adjust number of sl st/dc to avoid loosing shape - not too much (would enlarge piece) and not too many (would tighten piece). Your DROPS store will also help you with personnal tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Is this the method used for cable throw pattern 4769 using Drops Nepal wool? I have downloaded pattern and await delivery of wool from UK. Keen to get it right but no instructions for sewing together the squares. Also, can this pattern be made into a much larger throw - suggestions please.

DROPS Design 23.06.2015 - 10:56:

Dear Mrs McRobbie, you can use that way of sewing when 2 squares are sewn tog in the same knitting directions (pattern DROPS 124-3) - when sewing eg square 2 to 4 you can use that method (rows to sts). To make the blanket larger, work more squares and adjust desired square & placement/required material. Happy knitting!

Ik heb een steek zonder te breien afgehaald aan het begin van elke toer. Hoe kan ik dan de panden aan elkaar zetten?

DROPS Design 29.04.2015 - 13:29:

Hoi Greta. Dan is die eerste steek de kantsteek en gebruik je die voor de naad.

Different method to join side seams but I will use it next time I'm sewing them. Great videos. And thrilling that people in other countries speaking different languages are brought together through knitting.

He visto muchos videos de explicación y este sí que está muy bien explicado y muy claro. Muchas gracias por ello.

Grazie per questa spiegazione. ma se devo unire due pezzi a maglia rasata rovescia come posso fare? grazie

Complimenti, i video sono molto chiari e insegnano le tecniche per realizzare i capi al meglio! Grazie.

Un professeur à domicile si calme juste à ouvrir grand les yeux, les vidéos sont formidables, tout devient très claires et bien imprimées en moi, qui suis plus visuelle qu'audidive. Là il suffit de regarder les gestes si précis. Merci

Angelika 27.01.2013 - 17:30:

Danke für das Video. Das sieht so einfach aus und viel besser als wie ich bisher die Seitennähte gemacht habe.

Papapa 20.10.2012 - 12:07:

Il n'y a pas de son

Chère Madame Papapa, nos vidéos n'ont effectivement pas de son. Nous sommes une compagnie active au niveau mondial et nos vidéos sont regardées par des internautes du monde entier, parlant des langues différentes, dont beaucoup ne comprennent pas le français. Bon tricot!
