Hei. Nå har jeg fulgt oppskriften til punkt og prikke men har ikke fått den med sånne "ører" som pong pongene skal sitte på. Ifølge oppskriften skal jeg nå lage en søm på midten av hodet men på bildet er det ikke en sånn søm. Hvor står det hvordan jeg skal få til sånn det er på bildet? Den blir jo helt ordinær uten.

Hej May, jo men hjørnerne i hver side formes automatisk, når du har syet huen sammen ovenpå hovedet fra side til side. Huen formes af barnets hoved. God fornøjelse!

Malgré le forum, je ne comprends pas . Ma cagoule finie les petites pinces sont côté cou, en bas de la cagoule. ...A l envers! Où me suis je trompée? Merci de me répondre

DROPS Design 23.05.2017 kl. 09:01:

Bonjour Mme Brunel, essayez de montrer votre ouvrage à votre magasin ou de poster une photo sur le forum, il sera ainsi plus facile de vous répondre et de vous aider en voyant ce que vous avez fait. Bon tricot!

"Monter ensuite côté milieu devant pour au dessus de l'ouverture 6-6-8 (8-12) m = 72-76-80 (90-98) m. ." je ne comprends pas ces explications , que dois je faire et où? merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 09:54:

Bonjour Mme Lathe, montez ces mailles en fin de rang de chaque côté, vous augmentez maintenant pour le dessus de la tête et quand toutes les mailles sont montées, continuez en rond. Bon tricot!

Was bedeutet bitte "gegen vorne aufnehmen"?

DROPS Design 25.10.2016 kl. 14:11:

Liebe Nana, die Aufnahmen sind gegen vorne gemacht, dh am Anfang und am Ende jeder Reihe, und neue Maschen sind dann angeschlagen, um die Mütze zu "schliessen" und die Arbeit ist dann wieder in der Runde gestrickt.

Hej Et spørgsmål til opskrift babydrops 14-28 Jeg er usikker på hvad der forståes med at at tage ud "Når arb måler 11-12-13 (14-15) cm tages der ud i hver side mod midt foran på hver 2.p: 1 m 4-4-4 (5-5)" skal man dele mellem de to mærkninger? Tusind tak 😊

DROPS Design 09.03.2016 kl. 16:16:

Hej Jo du tager 1 m ud i hver side mod midt foran på hver 2.p, så du får flere masker mod ansigtet. God fornøjelse!

Jocelyne Moreau 12.01.2016 - 13:40:

Quel type d'augmentation et de diminution utilisez vous sur ce modèle?

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 10:40:

Bonjour Mme Moreau, quand aucune indication ne figure dans les explications, vous pouvez utiliser votre méthode préférée pour diminuer/augmenter. Bon tricot!

Arlene 13.09.2015 - 13:34:

Could you please explain mid front and mid back? don't quite understand how many sts on either side. Thank you

DROPS Design 14.09.2015 kl. 09:19:

Dear Arlene, you should have same number of sts between markers, in 1st size for ex. you have a total of 64 sts, you will have 32 sts between both markers. Happy knitting!
