Ik ben bezig met dit tasje haken, maar mijn werk blijft maar krullen(ben al 3 keer overnieuw begonnen). Als je steeds 1 stokje moet maken hoeft er dan geen losse tussen? Ik ben heel benieuwd wat ik fout doe. Graag saskia

Hoi Saskia. Er hoeft geen lossen tussen. Kan het zijn dat je misschien te strak haakt? (Controleer de stekenverhouding). Soms kan een werk ook gewoon een beetje krullen in het begin. Dat gaat vaak weg als je verder weg - of na een keer wassen.

For the pattern, do you start Round 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 with 3 chains before making the double crochets? Thank you.

Dear Ann, as stated under "crochet tips 1", you replace 1st dec on round with 3 ch. Happy crocheting!

Clara 11.08.2010 - 19:32:

The bag is crocheted with 2 strands. Is the gauge done with 2 strands?
