Altijd als ik bij jullie een patroon wil afdrukken drukt deze ook de pagina af met alle wol en alpaca party reclame. Kunnen jullie patroon afdrukken zo instellen dat deze laatste pagina niet wordt afgedrukt?

DROPS Design 15.12.2015 kl. 15:54:

Hoi Renate. Je kan het zelf instellen door te kiezen welke pagina's je wilt afdrukken.

In row one - how many groups of 7 dcs should there be - I keep getting 6 groups.

Dear Nancy, pattern repeat is worked over 8 ch: crochet 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, *skip 3 ch, 7dc in the next ch, skip 3 ch, 1 sc in next ch (= over 8 ch)*, repeat from * to * to get 7 pattern repeats (7 dc-group). Happy crocheting!

I like the name for this bag elegant summer breezy bag

Hoffman 20.01.2014 - 11:50:

Si on suit les explications le problème est que d'un coté la bordure n'est pas droite. Donc, à la fin du 4èmme rang, aprés la dernière bride, je rajoute 3 ml pour éviter qu'il y ait un resserrement et donc avoir un coté bien linéaire.

DROPS Design 21.01.2014 kl. 08:41:

Bonjour Mme Hoffman, le 4ème rang se termine bien par 1 ms dans la 3ème ml du début du rang précédent pour conserver le motif, et les côtés droits. Bon crochet !

Linda 25.06.2013 - 20:57:

Hi, in der Anleitung steht ja dass die 2 Teile zusammengenäht werden, aber auf dem Bild sieht das ja nicht so aus. Dafür sind die Seiten ja viel zu breit. Kann mir jemand sagen wie ich das so hinbekomme?

DROPS Design 26.06.2013 kl. 21:06:

Liebe Linda, die Tasche wurde so gehäkelt, wie in der Anleitung beschrieben. Haben Sie gesehen, dass 3 R mit Stb an das Unterteil und die Kanten der Vorder- und Rückteils gehäkelt werden?

Catherine 29.01.2013 - 09:47:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends absolument rien aux lignes 2 et 4 du diagramme...serait-il possible d'avoir plus d'explications? Merci

DROPS Design 29.01.2013 kl. 09:58:

Bonjour Catherine, rang 2: 4 ml, 1B dans la même m, *5 ml, sauter le groupe de B et dans la ms suiv : 1 B, 1 ml, 1B*. R3 :3ml, 3B dans la même m,*1 ms dans la ml du r2 + dans la 4ème B du groupe de B, 1 groupe de B dans la ml suiv*. R4 :3 ml, *1B,1ml,1B dans la ms, 5 ml*. Répétez de *-* tous les rangs. Bon crochet !

Ashlee - that symbol is just a bent dash that is the symbol for a chain st taking you to next row.

Ashlee 08.06.2010 - 19:25:

Ok, I took a break from this pattern, cleared my head and started again, it's working wonderfully. Only problem is there is a symbol in the M1 that doesn't have an explanation. On the 5th row (top) of the diagram, there's a comma looking thing in the first step, no where in the instructions can I find that.
