Hej.Jag undrar var dutt och spiral ska sitta?:Mvh.Kaarina

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 14:42:

Hej Kaarina, det ser ut som att det hör till några av de andra leksakerna :) Se de andra leksakerna här

Kaarina 08.11.2017 - 10:30:

Längst ner på klänningens kant hur göra den kanten.

DROPS Design 08.11.2017 kl. 11:23:

Hei Kaarina. Her ser det ut som om den svenske oversettelsen på PICOT kanten er utblitt. Den skal vi få oversatt så fort som mulig. Takk for at du gjorde oss oppmerksom på dette. I mellomtiden kan du evnt lese den norske: PICOTKANT: Nederst på kjolen hekles det en picotkant: 1 fm, * 3 lm, 1 st i den 1.lm, hopp over ca 1 cm, 1 fm i neste m *, gjenta fra *-* og avslutt med 1 kjm i fm på beg av omg. God Fornøyelse.

Pouvez-vous me transmettre les explications du bec. Merci

DROPS Design 01.12.2013 kl. 21:05:

Bonjour Mme Motillon, les explications du bec se trouvent sous la tête, au début du modèle : on crochète comme pour la petite balle mais jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 12 ms, on continue ensuite en jaune pour le bec et on fait 7 tours de ms. Après rembourrage, on ferme le bec par une couture. Bon crochet!

Ducastel 06.05.2013 - 16:57:

De beschrijving van de onderkant jurk staat er 2x in, maar de beschrijving van de poten niet! kunt ge mij de beschrijving van de poten bezorgen aub?

DROPS Design 07.05.2013 kl. 09:04:

Ja, dat is fout. Ik heb de beschrijving van de poten nu toegevoegd in het patroon.

Rina 22.04.2013 - 04:28:

Je crois qu'il y a une petite erreur dans la petite balle...car au rang 6 je finis avec 30 ms et au rang 16 on commence les diminutions avec 42 ms pour nous donner un total de 36 ms....merci de m'aider et me dire si la tête est aussi grosse que le corps...

DROPS Design 22.04.2013 kl. 09:55:

Bonjour Rina, les explications du canard ont été retranscrites car elles contenaient quelques erreurs. La petite balle (la tête) est plus petite que le corps. Bon crochet !

U haakt voor de snavel verder in de rondte met oranje en zo 7 toeren haken. Nu via de snavel de kop en snavel opvullen met wat vulling. Dan de steken 2 aan 2 samen haken en dichtnaaien. gr. Angelique

Ineke 23.08.2011 - 14:03:

Ik snap de beschrijving van de snavel niet

DROPS Design NL 27.02.2009 - 15:03:

Stk = stokje. Je kan eigenlijk een picot maken met zowel een vaste als een stokje. Ik had een vaste voorgesteld, maar volgens Design moet het een stokje zijn. Gr. Tine

Jacqueline Kattenberg-Gronloh 27.02.2009 - 13:27:

Ik ben pas begonnen met haken en begrijp het nog niet helemaal, sorry. Moet ik voor dat picotrandje nu een stokje of een vaste in de 1e losse haken? Ofwel: staat de afkorting stk voor stokje of steek? Verder natuurlijk mijn dank voor de hulp en de aanpassing. De (proef-)kip is erg leuk geworden!

DROPS Design NL 25.02.2009 - 12:53:

Hoi Jacqueline. De picotrand is nu ook toegevoegd op het patroon! Gr. Tine
