Hi I love this sweater and trying to make it for my granddaughter. I am working on the front using the girls pattern and I am having trouble understanding the directions for the first row, can you kindly provide me some assistance.

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 11:22:

Dear Mrs Oursler, to avoid 1st row being too tight, you will crochet much more chains than you will need sts on first row, so crochet number of chains for the appropriate size, then on first row, skip sts as explained so that you get 64-72-80-90-100 sts at the end of first row (see size). Happy crocheting!

Bonjour En allant sur mon ordinateur j'ai bien retrouve "Ajouter à mes favoris" sans doute un problème avec mon Ipad. merci

Busir 20.05.2017 - 08:58:

Bonjour Merci de m'avoir répondu mais c'est justement ce que je cherche " imprimer....et ajouter à mes favoris" Je fais beaucoup de modèles Drops et c'est la 1 ère fois que je ne le trouve pas .merci

DROPS Design 22.05.2017 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Mme Busir, en bas de l'onglet "Fournitures", juste au-dessus de l'encadré "Tags" (âge/stature, technique, type de modèle), vous trouverez ces boutons imprimer et ajouter à mes favoris, de chaque côté de celui où vous avez cliqué pour ajouter un commentaire. Bon crochet!

Busir 18.05.2017 - 17:46:

Bonjour .j'aimerais mettre ce modèle dans mes favoris mais je ne vois pas où cliquer .merci

DROPS Design 19.05.2017 kl. 09:08:

Bonjour Mme Busir, vous trouverez un petit rectangle rose "♥ Ajouter à mes favoris" après/sous "Imprimer:Explications / Photo / Commentaires". Bon crochet!

Just a suggestion. The ladies' photo of this pattern should also be displayed on your ladies' pattern category since there is a pattern for it. I made one a few years ago when I bought an older issue of your knitting magazine and found, to my delight, that you had this top in ladies' sizes also. Tusen Takk. :-)

Sandra 27.11.2012 - 13:52:

Toch begrepen! Helemaal verkeerd geïnterpreteerd, bedankt vr de uitleg, ik kan verder nu.

Sandra 27.11.2012 - 13:50:

Herhaal deze meerdering nog 1-1-2-2-2 keer op elke 8 cm = 52-58-64-66-70 stk. Bedoelt men elke 8cm hoogte of lengte?( kan geen v beide, het werk is 32 cm breed en 38 hoog) is in totaal 16stk bij mr je start met 48-54-58-60-64, lijkt niet overeen te komen met hierboven of lees ik verkeerd?

DROPS Design 27.11.2012 kl. 14:02:

Mooi, dat je het hebt begrepen. Veel haakplezier verder.

Sandra 26.11.2012 - 19:17:

Achterpand meisje: meerder bij 8 cm hoogte en dan opnieuw elke 8 cm( hoogte?), dit 5 keer in totaal, dus hoogte 40cm?? Blijven meerderen ook al moet je minderen voor armsgaten?

DROPS Design 27.11.2012 kl. 13:03:

Er staat in het patroon: ...Meerder vanaf een hoogte van 8 cm aan weerskanten...Herhaal deze meerdering nog 3-3-2-2-2 x op elke 6-6-9-9-10 cm. Dvz, 3 keer op elke 6 cm voor maat 5/6 jaar en zo voort.

Jennifer 11.08.2012 - 15:02:

I am working on the back...I do not understand this row -When the piece measures 26-28-30-31-32 cm bind off for armhole at each side every row: 3 dc 1 time, 2 dc 0-1-1-1-1 time . Woulld you please clarify?and 1 dc 1-1-3-3-4 times = 44-46-48-50-52 dc.

DROPS Design 24.08.2012 kl. 21:20:

Have you checked the video linked from the pattern? It shows how to bind off dc's each side. When it says 3 dc 1 time, then you bind off 3 dc 1 time each side!

Cricri 28.07.2011 - 16:40:
