Hola, estoy haciendo el bolso grande, al final cuando dice que al llegar a 53 cm tejer en punto musgo en los 39 puntos centrales ¿que hacemos con el resto?

DROPS Design 18.07.2018 kl. 21:32:

Hola Maria. Los 39 puntos centrales se trabajan en punto musgo y el resto de puntos se trabajan como antes según el patrón

Hi, are the buttons just for decoration or to hold down the flap on the large page? Thanks Tania

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 09:59:

Dear Tania, buttons are sewn and hold on the flap with to the crochet edge (right now missing) worked along the flap: 1 dc(UK)/sc(US) in the first 3 sts, 2 ch, skip 2 sts, 1 dc/sc in each of the next 29 sts, 2 ch, skip the next 2 sts, 1 dc/sc in each of the last 3 sts. Correction will be added asap. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, pour les 6 augmentations de chaque côté, faut-il les répartir (1 augmentation à chaque maille, donc sur 6 mailles) ou bien faut-il les faire en une fois ? Merci.

DROPS Design 17.05.2013 kl. 09:29:

Bonjour Rosy, pour le sac, on doit bien augmenter 6 m de chaque côté, en une seule fois - cf vidéo ci-dessous. Bon tricot !

Silvia 26.01.2013 - 17:51:

Nella spiegazione della borsa piccola c'è un'imprecisione:penso che sia più corretto scrivere che si parte dal margine corto e poi si aumenta oppure che si parte dal margine lungo e poi si diminuisce.ciao Silvia

Ho provato a modificare. Vedi se è meglio ora.

Drops Design 21.06.2010 - 08:56:

Bonjour Micciche, on tricote le sac en commençant par le rabat, puis le dos, à 34 cm on augmente 6 m de chaque côté pour les côtés, ces 6 m de chaque côté forment les côtés du sac et on les coud ensuite au dos et au fond du sac.

Micciche 20.06.2010 - 08:45:

Je comprends pa l augmentation des 6m chaque cote a 34cm Je pense qu il faut augm. apres les 11cm de revers de sac ?votre avis?
