Die zoektermen heb ik al gebruikt. Haken, top, dames, cremekleur, het staat er niet tussen. Worden patronen ook wel eens verwijderd door Drops? Als ik op de foto op Pinterest klik staat er: Stimmen Sie für die neue DROPS Kollektion! ~ DROPS Design. Kan het zijn dat het patroon nog moet worden uitgegeven, maar alleen nog de foto op de website staat? mvg

DROPS Design 15.03.2019 kl. 19:03:

Dag Nadine,

Het kan inderdaad zo zijn dat dit patroon nog niet gepubliceerd is op de site en dat deze foto gewoon gebruikt is als promotiefoto om te stemmen op de patronen. Het stemmen is in januari geweest en de patronen die veel stemmen hebben gekregen worden als eerste gepubliceerd.

Nadine 07.03.2019 - 08:28:

Als je op de foto klikt in pinterest kom je helaas niet bij het patroon, zoals anders wel het geval is, maar op de homepagina van Drops. Ik heb heel lang gezocht maar kan het patroon niet op de site vinden. Bij voorbaat dank voor uw moeite. Vriendelijke groet,

Nadine 06.03.2019 - 22:14:

Op pinterest kwam ik een patroon tegen van Drops maar er staat geen naam of nummer bij. Het lijkt op dit vestje Afternoon Romance. Het is een gehaakte top, volledig in cremekleur, met een ronde pas erop, een beetje zoals de jurkjes uit de film The Sound of Music. De top heeft geen mouwen en het ronde gedeelte lijkt er bovenop gehaakt. Onderaan de pas en onderaan de boord zit hetzelfde schulprandje als bij dit vestje. Ik zou het zo ontzettend graag willen maken, heeft u het patroon voor mij?

DROPS Design 07.03.2019 kl. 20:33:

Dag Nadine,

We hebben meer dan 7000 patronen op de site. Je kan het beste even zoeken op bijvoorbeeld 'haken' en 'top' en je kunt ook op kleur zoeken :)

Marianna 03.08.2018 - 21:23:

Ich häckle diese wunderschöne Jäckchen in der Grösse S. Und meine Frage ist welche 3,5 cm des Ärmels soll ich an Armloch annähen? Die Ärmel bestehen doch aus 63 Stb, die aus Passe der 60 Stb. gehäckelt werden. Was mache ich mit 16 Lm?

DROPS Design 06.08.2018 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Marianna, die 3,5 auf beiden Seiten der Ärmel ganz oben werden mit den neuen Luftmaschen unter den Ärmel zusammengenäht. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Lisa Wallmüller 21.10.2017 - 08:02:

Hallo, bei Dem Rückenteil soll man 68 Maschen überspringen. Soll man diese einfach auslassen? Oder wie funktioniert das überspringen? Danke für die Hilfe!

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 09:46:

Liebe Frau Wallmüller, diese 68 M überspringen Sie für jeden Ärmel, und Sie häkeln 20 Lm (unter jedem Ärmel). Diese neue 20 M häkeln Sie wie beschrieben, und die 68 M häkeln Sie dann später für die Ärmel. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Stephanie 09.10.2017 - 01:05:

As someone who lamentably cannot sew sleeves so that they end up smooth & even (despite starting from the wrist), I'm thinking of minimizing the scope for error by working them in the round after 4.5cm. But: is there an important reason why they should be worked back and forth all the way down? Or would this variant be OK?

DROPS Design 09.10.2017 kl. 09:32:

Dear Stephanie, sleeves are worked back and forth to keep same texture as on body. You can work them back and forth joining them together at the end of each row with a slip st (crochet together each row) and work alternately from RS and from WS without any seam. Happy crocheting!

Coutarel 23.09.2017 - 17:50:

Pour les manches on relève 68 B on ne fait rien sur les mailles en l'air (20 m) puis on augmente de 3, est ce que c'est ça

DROPS Design 25.09.2017 kl. 10:01:

Bonjour Mme Coutarel, tout à fait c'est bien ça, voir aussi réponse précédente. Bon crochet!

Coutarel 23.09.2017 - 07:58:

J'en suis à réaliser les manches, je ne comprends pas vus dites crocheter 71 B pour la manches mais les 71 B représentent les mailles en l'air, les autre mailles elles sont ou dans vos calculs, la manche ne fait pas que 71 B. merci pour votre réponse je fais le gilet en blanc

DROPS Design 25.09.2017 kl. 09:41:

Bonjour Mme Coutarel, en taille L vous avez 68 mailles pour les manches (lors de la séparation des manches), vous augmentez 3 B à intervalles réguliers = 71 B. Les mailles en l'air sous la manche ne sont pas crochetées, lors de l'assemblage de la manche, on va coudre les 4.5 premiers cm de la manche à ces mailles en l'air. Bon crochet!

Christine 07.08.2017 - 15:25:

For size small how do you inc 32 evenly if you have 111 stitches in the previous round ? 111 divided by 32 is 3.4 how do you repeat an inc every 3.4 stitches ?

DROPS Design 07.08.2017 kl. 15:50:

Hi Christine, The way to increase here is after alternately every 3rd and 4th stitch (approximately) to get your 32 increases. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Uta Große 02.08.2017 - 11:35:

Hallo. Der Ärmel wird an der Pässe angehäkelt. Werden dann nicht dort auch die Achselzunahmen mit dazugenommen??

DROPS Design 02.08.2017 kl. 13:53:

Liebe Frau Froße, alle zunahmen werden bei der Passe gearbeitet, damit es genügend Maschen für Rumpfteil und beide Ärmel sind. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!
