Beim Häkeln der Hose komme ich nicht weiter. Die Hosenbeine habe ich gehäkelt. In der Anleitung steht nur etwas von der Verbindung des Beins zum Hosenbein für ein Bein. Wie wird das eine Hose und wie kommt die an den Körper? Ich bin ratlos!\r\nIrene Müller

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 09:37:

Liebe Frau Müller, Bei der 1. Runde häkeln Sie 1 Stb in jeder Masche von beiden Hosenbeinen = es sind 44 Stb, mit 1 Kettm in die 3. Lm der Runde abschliessen. Bei der 2. und 3. Reihe werden Sie abnehmen = 22 Stb wenn die Hose fertig ist. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Hallo, fehlt bei dem Nikolaus die Beschreibung wie der Bart gefertigt wird, oder habe ich etwas übersehen. Ich finde den Nikolaus richtig süß. Wünsche allen eine schönes Weihnachtszeit und ich bin immer wieder von den Anleitungen begeistert! Vielen Dank und ganz liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 03.12.2014 kl. 21:55:

Die Beschreibung des Bartes steckt in den Schlaufenmaschen - diese bilden den Bart, sie werden am Ende aufgeschnitten. Sie müssen beim Kopf dafür die Farbabfolge (wie unter FARBEN über der eigentlichen Anleitung beschrieben) beachten - die ersten 3 R mit hellbeige mix, dann die 4.-6. R mit weiß, wobei die 4. und die 6. R mit Schlaufen-M gehäkelt werden und den Bart bilden, die letzten 6 R des Kopfes dann wieder mit hellbeige mix. Viel Spaß mit dem Nikolaus!

Heel correcte beschrijving! Het resultaat is gewoon prachtig. Bedankt voor dit patroontje.

Ich finde die Anleitung ziemlich kompliziert. Habe Teile nicht verstanden und improvisiert. Hat aber geklappt ;)
