Sabine 16.06.2019 - 22:52:

Liebes Drops-Team, zur Mütze habe ich eine Frage: "Mit H-Stb weiterfahren bis die Arbeit 8-10 (11) cm misst." Bezieht sich diese Angabe ab Ohrklappenspitze oder ab eigentlichen Mützenbeginn? Gleiches gilt für die abschließende Gesamtlänge "Die Arbeit misst ca. 17-19 (21) cm." Dank vorab! :-)

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:46:

Liebe Sabine, diese 8-10(11) cm werden ab Mützenbeginn (messen Sie hinten an den Rücken) gemessen, dh nicht vom Ohrenklappenspitze. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Maria Andersen 17.01.2019 - 19:29:

På bildet ser det ut som at det fremdeles er halvstaver over hullraden, men i oppskriften står det fastmasker. Hva er riktig?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 11:18:

Hei Maria. Det hekles fastmasker etter hullraden. Om du zoomer inn på bildet kan du også se det der. God fornøyelse

Inga 12.09.2018 - 19:39:

Danke für die schnelle Antwort. Allerdings verstehe ich noch immer nicht, was ich mit den Maschen machen soll. Soll ich jeweils zwei Maschen am Anfang und Ende der Runde abnehmen, also zusammenhäkeln? Insgesamt müssen ja 18 Maschen abgenommen werden um auf 29 zu kommen? Es tut mir leid, aber ich verstehe diesen Punkt der Anleitung einfach nicht. 2fm 1 Mal und 1fm 2 Mal ist doch das gleiche?

DROPS Design 13.09.2018 kl. 08:29:

Liebe Inga, Abnahmen werden wie unter TIPP ZUM ABNEHMEN-2 (Armloch und Hals) gehäkelt, dieses Video zeigt wie man diese Maschen am Anfang und Ende der selben Reihe abnimmt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Inga 12.09.2018 - 12:19:

Hallo, ich habe eine kurze Frage zur Anleitung. Ich bin gerade beim Vorderteil. Ich habe die Lochkante gehäkelt und das Kleid misst jetzt 32 cm und 47 Maschen. Abgenommen wurde auch schon. Als nächstes kommt: 2 fM 1-1-1 (2-2) Mal und 1 fM 2 Mal = 22-25-29 (29-32) fM. Wie ist das gemeint? Nehme ich 1 Masche ab und dann wieder zwei normal häkeln? Es wäre sehr nett, wenn ihr mir da helfen könntet. Vielen Dank, Inga

DROPS Design 12.09.2018 kl. 12:55:

Liebe Inga, zuerst nehmen Sie 5 Maschen (in der 3. Größe) auf beiden Seiten ab - siehe ABNAHME-TIPP-2 dann nehmen Sie auf beiden Seiten (= am Anfang + Am Ende nächste Hinreihe) 2 Maschen 1 x und dann nehmen Sie 1 M 2 Mal = am Anfang und am Ende jeder beiden nächsten Hinreihe = es sind jetst 29 M übrig. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Marie 05.05.2018 - 11:24:

Hei! Jeg forstår ikke hvordan dette "Videre felles det i hver side på hver rad slik: 2 fm 1-1-1 (2-2) ganger og 1 fm 2 ganger = 22-25-29 (29-32) fm." skal gjøres? Har noen tips?

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 12:45:

Hei Marie. Det skal felles 2 fm i hver ende av pinnen, og avhengig av hvilken størrelse du strikker skal dette gjøres 1 eller 2 ganger. Dvs: om du strikker en av de 3 minste størrelsene feller du 2 masker på begynnelsen av pinnen og 2 masker på slutten av pinnen = 4 masker felt. Om du strikker en av de 2 største størrelsene gjentar du denne fellingen en gang til = totalt 8 masker felt. Videre skal du felle 1 maske på begynnelsen og 1 maske på splutten av de neste 2 pinnene = 4 masker felt over 2 omganger. God fornøyelse.

Giuseppina 12.09.2016 - 15:07:

Danke. Dann ist die Passage "Zusammennähen" nicht korrekt.

DROPS Design 13.09.2016 kl. 08:46:

Liebe Giuseppina, das Zusammennähen wurde korrigiert, vielen Dank!

Giuseppina 11.09.2016 - 22:30:

Hallo zusammen! ich hab eine Frage bezüglich dieser Passage: ZUSAMMENNÄHEN: Die Schulternaht zusammennähen. Die Knöpfe annähen. Sollen die Knöpfe nur als Deko dienen? Oder sollte da evtl. stehen "Die Seitennähte zusammennähen.?" Besten Dank für die Hilfe! Giuseppina

DROPS Design 12.09.2016 kl. 09:56:

Liebe Giuseppina, die Knöpfe sollen auf dem Rückenteil aufgenäht, den Knopflöchern von dem Vorderteil gegenüber.

Sabrina 04.09.2016 - 23:42:

Hallo, das Kleidchen ist wirklich süß! Allerdings stimmt in den Größenangaben etwas nicht, 74/88 soll bestimmt 74/80 heißen oder? LG Sabrina

DROPS Design 09.09.2016 kl. 11:07:

Liebe Sabrina, das ist ja korrekt, Anleitung wurde korrigiert. Herzlichen Dank!

Monique 05.11.2015 - 22:05:

Ja, ich habe das Original-Garn Drops Merino Extra Fine genommen. Mit der 4,5er Häkelnadel bin ich jetzt auf 17 Maschen auf 10cm gekommen. Ich werde einfach eine 5er nehmen und dann klappt es sicher :-) Danke für die Hilfe.

DROPS Design 07.11.2015 kl. 12:16:

Ja, es hört sich so an, dass Sie mit einer 5-er Nadel die richtige Maschenprobe erhalten müssten. Gutes Gelingen und viel Spaß beim Häkeln!

Monique 17.10.2015 - 21:54:

Hallo :-) Ich komme mit der Maschenprobe für das Kleidchen nicht zurecht. Ich möchte das Kleid für die Größe 74/80 machen. Mit einer 5er-Häkelnadel komme ich nach 2 Reihen H-Stb nicht auf 41cm, sondern nur auf 34cm. Mit einer 6er-Nadel sind es 37,5cm. Muss ich eine 7er-Nadel nehmen, wenn doch 4,5 angegeben ist. Ich häkel auch weder zu straff noch zu locker. Haben Sie eine Idee, was ich falsch mache bzw. was ich anders machen sollte? Vielen herzlichen Dank. Monique

DROPS Design 29.10.2015 kl. 14:27:

Haben Sie denn ein passendes Garn verwendet? Halten Sie sich an die angegebene Maschenprobe, die oben unter dem Material genannt ist, 10 cm in der Breite müssten Sie mit 16 H-Stb erreichen. Schlagen Sie hierfür mindestens 20 Luft-M an und häkeln Sie Halb-Stb, dann messen Sie in der Mitte aus, wie viele Sie auf 10 cm benötigen und passen ggf. die Nadelstärke an. Wichtig ist, dass Sie entweder das Originalgarn oder ein Garn ähnlicher Stärke verwenden, dann sollte es mit der Maschenprobe klappen.
