Ik ben bij rij 12. Nu wil armsgaten maken voor maat L. HIer gaat het naar rij 13. Houd het in dat ik eerst rij 12 van maat S moet haken en daarna rij 13 van maat L? Ik kom er even niet uit

DROPS Design 06.08.2018 kl. 11:30:

Dag Anja, Ja, dat klopt Voor maat M/L beginnen de armsgaten op toer 13. Dus als er staat 'Begin nu voor maat XL met het maken van de armsgaten – lees de uitleg voor toer 14 en 15 hieronder!' dan ga je pas naar de paragraaf verderop waar omschreven staat hoe je de armsgaten maat voor maat M/L.

Lynne Vann 19.07.2018 - 04:27:

I have totally screwed up the armholes for this beautiful sweater!! M/L 13th round says 3tr in 1st tr, 30 chain, skip over (1yr and 3 ch) a total of 7 times. So I have a series of 7 loops of 30 ch on each side of my circle!!! Where did I go wrong???!!!!

DROPS Design 19.07.2018 kl. 09:33:

Dear Mrs Vann, on 13th round you will create armholes skipping sts and chaining 30 chains a total of 2 times, ie skip (1 tr, 3 chains) a total of 7 times = 7 trebles will be skipped, chain 30 and continue with 3 tr in next tr, then work *2 ch, 3 tr in next tr* a total of 15 times then repeat armhole: chain 30 and skip the next (1 tr, 3 ch x 7 = 7 tr) and continue with 3 tr in next tr, then (2 ch, 3 tr in next tr) to the end of round. Happy crocheting!

Veronica Woll 11.07.2018 - 21:16:

Is this pattern available in toddler and child sizes...if not can you direct me to a similar pattern for kids?

DROPS Design 12.07.2018 kl. 09:01:

Dear Mrs Woll, you will find here crocheted circle jackets for kids. Happy crocheting!

Selena 02.07.2018 - 07:23:

Hi, my question is with the armhole for XL and ending row 14. I have gone all the way around for row 14 XL but am unsure how to join to the first set of 34 chain. Without joining this row to the beginning somehow row 15 doesn't finish right (or at least to me). Do you have a photo of these rows to help.

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 10:09:

Dear Selena, at the beg of row 14, crochet first 4 chains (= 1st st at the beg of row), then crochet the 34 chains for the first armhole, continue as explained to the end of round and finish with 1 sl st in the 4th ch from beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Sally T 28.06.2018 - 04:21:

Is there a tutorial for this pattern? I seen to be having difficulty with the terminology Thanks Sally

DROPS Design 28.06.2018 kl. 08:47:

Dear Sally, there is only written pattern to this jacket - you will find video showing how to crochet the different stitches - make sure you are reading the right English-language, US- and UK-crochet terminology are different - edit language under picture if necessary. Happy crocheting!

Pernilla Lytton 23.06.2018 - 03:17:

Hej Kan jag virka koftan med 2 trådar Drops Kid Silk istället för 2 trådar Alpaca?

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 10:14:

Hei Pernilla. DROPS Alpaca og DROPS Kid Silk tilhører begge garngruppe A, og har samme strikkefasthet. Du kan derfor helt fint bytte ut disse med hverandre. Vær obs på at teksturen på plagget blir annerledes om du bruker Kid Silk, da dette garnet har en mer «hårete» tekstur enn Alpaca. Var også obs på at du overholder strikkefastheten: kjernetråden i Kid Silk er mindre enn Alpaca så det er fort gjort å hekle strammere. God fornøyelse.

Micòl 15.06.2018 - 20:27:

Non mi è chiaro il giro 13 nella sezione scalfi per la taglia S.Dice"Lavorare come segue sulle 26 cat: * 3 m.a.d, 2 cat *, per un totale di 8 volte." ma 3 m.a.d in una catenella due catenelle salto qualcosa....oppure come? non lo riesco a visualizzare

DROPS Design 15.06.2018 kl. 21:15:

Buonasera Micòl. Abbiamo modicato leggermente il testo: deve lavorare intorno alle catenelle e non in una catenella. Quindi intorno alla fila di 26 cat, ripete *3 m.a.d, 3 cat * per 8 volte. Buon lavoro!

Simone 11.05.2018 - 22:55:

Ik loop vast na toer 13. Er staat dan dat je voor XL door moet voor de armsgaten maar er staat 2 keer toer 14, 15 en 16. En daar onder ook weer toer 14, 15 en 16. Wanneer moet ik wat doen? Als ik met de armsgaten bezig ga na toer 13 kom ik niet uit.

DROPS Design 12.05.2018 kl. 15:15:

Hallo Simone, Voor maat XL haak je vanaf toer 14 de armsgaten en daarvoor lees je het stuk onder 'Maat XL: Haak de armsgaten volgens toer 14 hieronder'. Tot en met toer 13 en vanaf toer 16 haak je volgens de beschrijving in de alinea die boven 'Maak de armsgaten als volgt' staat. (In die paragraaf staan inderdaad ook toer 14 en 15 beschreven, maar die zijn voor de kleinere maten om mee verder te gaan nadat de armsgaten zijn gemaakt.)

Heather Christiansen 10.05.2018 - 10:44:

The instructions appear to be wrong for row 15 of the XL bind off armhole.\r\nIt should instruct to *1Tr, ch3, skip 2 chains* repeat 11 times. \r\nThis will get you across the entire chain. Do this across both chains. When on the non-chain section the instructions are correct. \r\n\r\nHappy Hooking Everyone! I hope this helps someone!

Megan M 01.05.2018 - 18:27:

M/L: Round 13: Circle : it calls for me to chain 30 then later for me to work over the chain 30 ... how do I do that??\r\n\r\nRound 13: Bindoff armholes: what is the exact pattern? 13 bindoff, 13 circle, 14 bindoff?

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 11:03:

Dear Megan, you will shape the armholes skippping some sts ( = (1 tr and 3 ch) a total of 7 times,) that will be replaced by 30 chains a total of 2 times to create 2 "holes" for the armholes (where sleeves will be worked later from). On next round, crochet in the 30-chain-spaces in pattern as before to continue circle. Happy crocheting!
