Ekaterina 06.05.2019 - 16:10:

Thanks a lot for your help and quick response!

Ekaterina 06.05.2019 - 16:00:

Dear Drops! Thank you very much for your previous help. Now I am working on the Back piece, row 26. How should I work on the neckline= 23 tr? Should I crochet 23 sl st ?

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 16:03:

Dear Ekaterina, you will work the shoulders separately to shape neckline: work first one row over the first 14 sts from the beg of the row on one side (leave the remaining sts on this row unworked), turn and work next row, cut the yarn. Now work the 2nd shoulder the same way: skip 23 sts after the 14 tr worked on first shoulder and work the remaining stiches with 1 tr in each of these 14 tr for 2nd shoulder, turn and work next row, cut the yarn. The middle 23 sts skipped between shoulders = neck. Happy crocheting!

Ekaterina 29.04.2019 - 17:10:

Thanks a lot. One more question, please. How should I replace the marker for the next increases? Should I again count 30 tr from each side of the work? What is the total number of trebles after all increases?

DROPS Design 30.04.2019 kl. 09:43:

Dear Ekaterina, markers should stay on the same place all the way until you divide for armholes, ie after 1st increase, there will be one more stitch on front piece from mid front to marker, and 2 more sts between markers on back piece. Happy crocheting!

Ekaterina 29.04.2019 - 16:04:

Could you help me with the following question regarding the total number of increases? I'm crochetting for the size M. Should I count the first increase when piece measures 1cm+the inc on every 2cm a total of 4 times= 5 times?

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 16:20:

Dear Ekaterina, you increase 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts per increase row) and repeat these inc a total of 4 times (inclusive the first increase) every 2nd cm. Happy knitting!

Laura Tarulli 05.04.2019 - 16:04:

Ciao, ho notato che in ogni parte del lavoro si utilizzano i due capi di ogni qualità di filato insieme. Però il peso degli stessi non corrisponde, quindi chiedevo maggiori spiegazioni perche non vorrei esaurire un filato prima dell'altro. Grazie.

DROPS Design 30.04.2019 kl. 09:07:

Buongiorno Laura, le quantità in peso dei due filati sono diverse perchè i due filati hanno metraggi diversi. Ad esempio per la taglia S servono 300 g di BabyMerino, che equivalgono a 105m x 6 = 630m e 75g di Kid-silk che corrispondono a 200m x 3 = 600m. Buon lavoro!

Ekaterina 13.03.2019 - 17:03:

Hello, dear Drops! Is it possible to crochet this model without adding Drops Kid Silk?

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 09:42:

Dear Ekaterina, your tension would be then completely different (and the texture would be also different), it sounds like a good idea to keep here both yarn group B (Merino) + Kid-Silk. Happy crocheting!

Susan Starke 10.08.2016 - 20:48:

Hallo,ich verstehe die Ab-/und Zunahmen bei den Markern beim Rückenteil nicht bis hin zu den Armausschnitten.können sie mir die bitte vereinfacht erklären.Danke

DROPS Design 27.08.2016 kl. 15:31:

Liebe Susan, könnten Sie uns bitte genau schreiben, was Sie nicht verstehen?

Naomi Schwitters 29.12.2015 - 23:23:

Hallo :) ich verstehe ganz am Anfang der Anleitung nicht bei den Vierecken nicht wieso da 1 faden und in klammern 2 faden steht muss ich irgendwas mit 2 fäden häkeln? danke lg naomi

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 20:46:

Sie häkeln ja mit 2 verschiedenen Garnen zusammen, Merino Extra Fine und Kid-Silk. Also 1 Faden von jedem Garn = 2 Fäden zusammengenommen.

Maria 16.04.2014 - 19:14:

Virkar denna väst i stl L. Får inte riktigt ihop det vid ärmhålen. Det står: öka vid 3cm vid sidmarkeringarna, sedan var 4e cm 2ggr (=11cm). Men det står också att jag ska vid 10 cm börja virka var del för sig för att få till ärmhålet. Då har jag ju inte hunnit öka allt. Jag löser det för egen den men kanske ni vill förtydliga det. För övrigt fullkomligt avgudar jag er sida, återkommer ständigt för egen del och rekommenderar den till alla!

DROPS Design 17.04.2014 kl. 12:19:

Hej Maria. Nej, det er rigtigt, men ikke fejl. Du hekler hver del hver for sig og skal samtidig tage ind til armhul i hver side af baade forstk og bagstk. Det er det samme ved strikkede projekter.

Vasseur Odile 09.07.2013 - 10:01:
