Liebes Drops Team, ich möchte diese Mütze mit Brushed Alpaca Silk häkeln. Benötige ich dann 150 Gramm der Farbe 1 und 100 Gramm der Farbe 2 oder wieviel von jeder Farbe? Vielen Dank schonmal für die Antwort!

Liebe Bettina, DROPS Nepal würde eine beste Garnalternativ (siehe hier) - Mehr Informationen über Garnalternativ finden Sie hier. Viel spaß beim häkeln!

Habe diese Mütze gehäkelt, bei der deutschen Anleitung wird nicht angegeben ob diese rundgehäkelt oder hinten zusammengenäht wird. Habe sie rundgehäkelt und die hintere Naht wurde nicht gerade. Ausserdem fehlt bei der Angabe Ohrenklappen di cm Angabe für die hintere Mitte.

Liebe Sieglinde, wir haben die Anleitung überarbeitet und die fehlende Infomation ergänzt. Entschuldigung für die Umstände. Die Mütze wird aber tatsächlich rund gehäkelt und die hintere "Naht" wird gleichmässig, wenn Sie die 1 M dürch 2 Lm ersetzen - siehe Häkelinfo (man schliesst die Rd mit 1 Kettm in die 2.Lm)

Hei, må øreklaffene hekles etter at luen er ferdig? Er nybegynner.

DROPS Design 13.12.2013 kl. 10:15:

Hei Carla. Ja, det gör du. Luen hekles fra toppen og nedover, saa du slutter af med klaffene.
