Hallo, ich bin beim Bustier angekommen. Warum soll ich die erste Reihe vom Muster ‚3 mal so häkeln‘? Stimmt das wirklich? Die Stelle sieht auf dem Bild ganz anders aus.

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 09:54:

Liebe Jenny, es werden die 4 ersten Reihe in M.2B/M.3B gehäkelt, siehe im Diagram welche Maschen/Reihen (je nach der Größe wird Diagram früher oder später anfangen/enden). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Bauer Monika 27.05.2017 - 17:15:

Hallo! stimmt die luftmaschenanzahl zu beginn wirklich? wenn ich mit einem garn (23 Stb auf 10 cm) die 454 luftmaschen mache, komme ich doppelt rein

DROPS Design 29.05.2017 kl. 09:16:

Liebe Frau Bauer, zu vermeiden daß die Lmkette am Anfang zu eng wird, häkelt man mehr Lm (= 454) als man dann Stb am Ende der 1. Reihe hat (= 362 Stb). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Lynn Neering 04.06.2016 - 00:47:

Can you give me an idea of what the sizes are? Example; small is a 6/8, medium a 10/12, etc.?? Something like that..... Mahalo

DROPS Design 06.06.2016 kl. 08:50:

Dear Mrs Neering, you will find at the bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements for each size - in cm, taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more and convert into inch here. Happy knitting!

Nicole Marshall 16.03.2016 - 20:34:

When beginning the decrease on row 2 after M.1 it says to dec 1 doc to the right of all markers. The next step states "Repeat the dec on every 4th row a total of 12 times, NOTE: Dec to right and left alter. Of markers". Does this mean row 2 dec to right of marker, row 6 dec to left of markers, row 10 dec to right, row 14 dec to left, etc?

DROPS Design 16.03.2016 kl. 23:58:

Dear Mrs Marshall, on 1st row with dec, you will dec on the right side of markers, then on next dec row, you will dec on the left of markers and repeat these dec, alternately dec on the right side and on the left side of the markers. Happy crocheting!

Nicole Marshall 27.02.2016 - 02:20:

Does tr mean US double crochet or a true treble crochet stitch?

DROPS Design 27.02.2016 kl. 16:18:

Dear Mrs Marshall, be sure you are reading pattern in US-English with US-crochet terminology, and click here to get both US/UK-crochet terminology. Happy crocheting!

Grethe Myklebust 09.01.2016 - 14:14:

Sliter med å tolke diagrammene for brystpartiet. Skal jeg hekle det som er innenfor klammen for den størrelsen jeg har valgt? Men hva indikerer da pilen til høyre? Er det indikasjon på hvor høyt oppe på mønsteret størrelsen starter? Altså at det som er nedenfor pilen er for større størrelser?

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 13:52:

Hej Grethe, Ja det stemmer, du starter din størrelse på den række pilen er og så hækler du indenfor klammerne for din størrelse. God fornøjelse!

Eman Elsayed 31.03.2015 - 00:31:

We need more explanation for this patterns Please and we ask if you can translate it into Arabic.

Sandra 21.03.2015 - 21:13:

De tip bij het haken is mij bij dit patroon niet duidelijk. Normaal haak je de lossen ipv het eerste stokje, nu zou je hem extra moeten doen. Betekent dit dat ik in de eerste steek van de toer (na het keren) niet allen de drie lossen heb zitten, maar ook nog een stokje, zodat ik dus eigenlijk iedere toer 1 steek meerder? Of sla ik toch gewoon de eerste steek over en haak ik dan het beschreven stokje?

DROPS Design 24.03.2015 kl. 15:08:

Hoi Sandra. Voor dit patroon vervang je inderdaad niet het eerste stk door 3 l. Je keert met 3 l en haakt dan ook een stokje in het eerste stokje.
