Se uso il filato Cotton Light l’uncinetto con cui lavorarlo rimane il num. 5? Quale altro filato sfumato sul rosa o sull’azzurro potrei eventualmente usare?

DROPS Design 07.10.2018 kl. 08:43:

Buongiorno Domenica. Sì può provare con l’uncinetto n.5 o con la misura che le consente di ottenere lo stesso campione indicato nel modello. Nello stesso gruppo di filati, non ci sono altri filati sfumati. Può valutare il filato Delight, che però è più sottile. Buon lavoro!

The pattern is beautiful but the instructions are wrong. Round 8 is wrong. I tried the correction but that is wrong too. I'm following the English US version. Very sad.

DROPS Design 13.06.2016 kl. 11:44:

Dear Melissa, on round 8 work as follows from *-*: * 3 ch, 1 dc in last dc on the same leaf, 3 ch, 1 sc in third dc on next leaf, 3 ch, 1 sc in 6th dc on the same leaf, 3 ch, 1 dc in first dc on the next leaf, 3 ch, 1 tr-group in fourth dc on the same leaf, 5 ch, 1 tr-group in fifth dc on the same leaf* - pattern will be edited asap. Thank you, happy crocheting!

Thank you for sharing this pattern... I made one for my baby daughter some 45 years ago... It was similar to this pattern... Now intend making one or two for great grand babies to come.

Hosna 17.07.2015 - 13:13:

I think the pattern in round 8 may be corrected as follows: In the repeated section, after 3 ch, "1 dc in the last dc on the same leaf, 3 ch" should be added. At the end of the round, "1 dc in first dc on the next leaf – also crochet this round the 3 ch from beg of round, 3 ch, 1 sl st at the top of the first tr-group" may be omitted and replaced by "finish with 1 sl st in third ch from beg of round".

Hosna 17.07.2015 - 13:12:

I think the pattern may be corrected in Row 8 as follows: starting with 6 ch (instead of 3 ch), omitting " 1 sc in fourth dc on the first leaf, 3 ch", then adding "in fourth dc on the same leaf" after "1 tr...".

Salve a tutti! Vorrei chiedere una delucidazione: ho provato a seguire il modello e ci sono riuscita fino al giro 8. Dal giro 9 in poi c'e forse qualche errore?perche non mi riesce più! Spero in una vostra risposta! Grazie

Hei, lurer bare på om dere selger dette garnet enda eller noe tilsvarende for dette var bare helt nydelig :) Vennelig hilsen Aina

Kære Aina. Muskat Soft er ganske rigtig udgået her hos os, men det kan stadig fås hos nogle butikker. Se på vores forhandlerside: https://www.garnstudio.com/lang/no/butikker.php?but=1
