Graag meer uitleg wat u bedoelt met 1 keer 3 stk, 0-1-1-2-2 keer 2 stk en 2-1-3-3-4 keer 1 stk. (afkanten voor armsgat)

DROPS Design 27.01.2019 kl. 14:10:

Dag Renilde,

Je kan eerst 3 stokjes af en dat doe je 1 keer. Op de volgende toer kant je 2 stokjes af en afhankelijk van je maat doe je dat 0-1-1-2-2 keer (dus 0 keer voor de kleinste maat, 1 keer voor de volgende maat, enz) tot slot kant je 2-1-3-3-4 keer 1 stokje af.

Is this top crochet with the yarn double .... 2 balls.the pattern doesn’t say so but the colours say a colour +another colour.-

DROPS Design 22.08.2018 kl. 17:07:

Hello Toni. Yes, you work the pattern with two threads: 1 thread of Paris (P in the diagram) and 1 thread of cotton Viscose (CV in the diagram). The color combination and sequence are described in the diagram. Happy crocheting!

Guten Tag. In der deutschen Übersetzung ist ein Fehler in der Farbangabe für die dritte Farbkombination von unten (Quadrat mit Querstrich): die Farbe muss Senf sein statt Khaki - siehe Bild und englische Version.

DROPS Design 08.04.2014 kl. 10:51:

Liebe Elke, sind Sie da evtl. beim Schauen verrutscht? Die Angabe ist korrekt, es steht als Farbe "senf".

Kani 24.02.2013 - 06:31:

How wonderful it would be if DROPS came out with a cotton/linen/viscose? yarn in exactly these colors ombre ...

Detta mönster har aldrig varit med i DROPS-katalog och är endast skriven för en norsk veckotidning. Tag hjälp av våra ordlistor så kanske det går fint :-)

Inga-maj 06.02.2007 - 21:00:

Jag skulle vilja virka detta mönster på svenska vad gör jag?
