Ik ben al een tijdje rond aan het kijken voor wat leuke patronen voor de zomer en was deze toevallig tegen gekomen. Ik heb niet zo'n goede ervaring met Drops Paris, misschien heb ik ook wel te strak gehaakt. Ik wilde graag weten of het jurkje niet zwaar wordt als het van Paris gehaakt wordt.

DROPS Design 05.04.2016 kl. 17:02:

Hoi Veronica. Wij hebben niet eerder problemen gehad met dit patroon en het garen, maar vind je zelf 700 tot 950 gr te zwaar voor een jurk, dan moet je het niet doen. En houd de stekenverhouding aan voor het patroon (haak een proeflapje om te checken dat het klopt), dan kan je ook kijken of je het te strak vindt.

Kuinka olkanauhat kiinnitetään takakappaleeseen? Ohjeessa ei ole kuvaa 😕

DROPS Design 22.05.2015 kl. 15:45:

Olkanauhat ommellaan kiinni takakappaleen kummallekin puolelle siten, että ne kulkevat suoraan.

Zijn er nog meer die te weinig katoen hebben? Ik heb met maat m aan 750 gram paris niet genoeg , helaas

Irene 18.04.2015 - 17:45:

Probleem is al opgelost!

DROPS Design 20.04.2015 kl. 11:33:

Hoi Irene. Mooi om te horen!

Irene 17.04.2015 - 15:33:

Ik heb een proeflapje gehaakt, en dat komt overheen met de steekverhouding. Nu ben ik begonnen met maat s/m, die moet onder circa 52 cm zijn, maar ik heb 32cm, klopt 51 losse opzetten wel?

Tempericia 27.04.2013 - 04:39:

I have read the pattern a few times now and I don't understand how to finish both of the straps at the same time without crocheting in the middle and I don't understand where I am Continueing to bind off for the armholes at the same time bind off towards the neck on every row 2 sc 2 times, 1 sc 3 times. Where am I binding off the 2 sc and where the 1 sc.

DROPS Design 27.04.2013 kl. 09:01:

Dear Tempericia, you work on the sts each side of front piece, and leave unworked the middle sts. you will then separately each side continue shaping armhole on the same side you already started binding off 3(4) sts when piece measures 73 cm (larger size), and on the other end of row, you will shape neckline (towards the other side). For any individual help for this pattern, please ask the shop where you bought your yarn or any crochet forum. Happy crocheting!

Tempericia 26.04.2013 - 14:25:

Thank-you for all your help. Ummm.....my laptop glitched and posted my question more then once and I can't delete it if you can awesome if not o well I blame my laptop. I love this dress almost done with front half in three days (Yay).

Tempericia 26.04.2013 - 14:14:

How do I finish both sides seperately at the same time? Thank-you for your help.

DROPS Design 26.04.2013 kl. 16:33:

Dear Tempericia, you will finish each side separately, and at the same time shape neck side and armhole. Happy crocheting!

Tempericia 26.04.2013 - 03:31:

So I am making this dress in the biggest size but I don't understand how to make the collar and straps. I have read the pattern repeatedly and it makes no sense to me. I need to get this done ASAP as its a gift so any help at all would be great thanks.

DROPS Design 26.04.2013 kl. 08:43:

Dear Tempericia, you will create neck shaping working only on the sts each side, leaving the middle 10 sc (Ice) / 15 sc (Paris) unworked. At the same time, you will continue dec for armhole as before + dec for neck. Happy crocheting!
