Skal delen syes sammen for hånd med samme tråd, eller med maskin?

Hei Tove. De skal syes sammen for hånd. Her er en video som viser hvordan du kan gjøre det. God fornøyelse.

De uitleg over het gehaakte deel is niet zo duidelijk en volgens mij komt het ook niet overeen met de werkkelijkheid van de foto, want daar zijn eerst gaatjes gehaakt boven het gebreide en dat zie ik niet terug in de afbeelding, is dit wel juist?

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 09:51:

Dag Cecile, De gehaakte rand wordt overdwars gebreid, dus je begint a.h.w. aan de ene zijnaad en haakt naar de andere zijnaad. Je herhaalt patroon M.1 steeds in de hoogte tot de rand ongeveer zo hoog is als de breedte van het voor/achterpand. De gaatjes zitten ook in dit haakpatroon.

Die Höhe der Häkelborte ist nicht ersichtlich - es fehlt die genaue Zentimeter-Angabe.

Danke für den Hinweis, die Anleitung wurde an dieser Stelle nun korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim Weiterhäkeln!

I'd love to make this top but I find the crochet instructions rather scant - I wonder if you'd be able to supply some more detailed ones?
