CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc on next round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards.

WORKING 2 SC TOG:
* Insert hook in next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

A magyar fordítás több helyen hibás. Például a 7. és a 9.sor leírása. Mindenképp nézz rá egy másik nyelvű leírásra is (pl.angol), ha meg akarod horgolni. Kedves Eszter, köszönjük, hogy felhívta a figyelmünket a hibákra, amik javításra kerültek.

Léa 12.07.2016 - 17:29:

Y'a t'il une video pour le rond magique? je n'ai pas très bien compris les explication écrite. merci!

DROPS Design 13.07.2016 kl. 09:20:

Bonjour Léa, voici la vidéo pour le rond magique, vous pourrez le retrouver également sous l'onglet "vidéos" à droite de celui des fournitures. Bon crochet!

Andrea 22.03.2016 - 12:52:

Habe das gleiche Problem wie Claudia (Schnabel Reihe 5) ist in der Originalanleitung auch nicht anders. Ich würde im abwechselnd überspringen und häkeln, ist das richtig ?

DROPS Design 23.03.2016 kl. 14:04:

Liebe Andrea, siehe Antwort auf Claudias Kommentar.

Jacqueline 16.03.2016 - 01:23:

Bonjour, je n'arrive pas a effectuer le bec, avez-vous un vidéo ou un example? merci

DROPS Design 16.03.2016 kl. 09:34:

Bonjour Jacqueline, pour réaliser le bec, on forme un losange en partant d'1 ms et tous les rangs, on double le nbe de ms jusqu'à ce qu'il y en ait 4, puis on augmente au début et à la fin du rang 4 - ensuite, on diminue au début et à la fin du rang 5 en sautant 1 ms, puis on répète ces diminutions aux rangs 6 et 7 jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 1 ms. Bon crochet!

Claudia 14.03.2016 - 20:24:

Beim Schnabel ist ein Fehler in der Anleitung: In der 5. Reihe wird eine fM zu wenig gearbeitet. Man soll die erste fM überspringen, dann jeweils 1 fM in die nächsten zwei arbeiten. Danach wieder eine überspringen und dann 1 fM in die letzte M arbeiten. Dann arbeitet man aber nur 3 fM und nicht vier. Richtig müsste es daher heißen: Die erste fM überspringen, je 1 fM in die nächsten 2 fM, die nächste fM überspringen, je eine fM in die letzten zwei fM = 4 fM.

DROPS Design 15.03.2016 kl. 08:19:

Liebe Claudia, wir haben die Beschreibung für Reihe 5 nochmals überprüft und es ist korrekt: Sie häkeln 1 Lm (=1. M) überspringen 1 M, häkeln 2 M, überspringen 1 M und häkeln 1 M (4 M insgesamt).

J'ai déja réalisé la poule de pâques et voulant imprimer à nouveau les explications , je n'est pas sur le site les explications pour réaliser le corp de cette poule , ça n'est pas complet merci

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour Mme Chantreuil, les explications complètes de la poule se trouvent ici, un test d'impression a été réalisé avec succès - les explications du corps se trouvent sous le paragraphe "POULE". Bon crochet!

Laila 23.03.2015 - 00:57:

Vedr NEBB. Stiller samme spørsmål som andre har gjort. Har lest tidligere svar lenger ned på denne kommentarsiden,men skjønner ikke svaret. Hvorfor er ikke selve oppskriften endret,slik at den blir bedre å forstå? Skal man da i hver omgang regne luftmasken som en fastmaske? Det blir heller ikke riktig! Antall fastmasker stemmer med oppskriften i alle omgangene (unntatt omg 5),så hvis man også skal telle med LUFTMASKEN,blir det jo alltid 1 maske for mye ! (?)

Anna Winther 03.02.2015 - 17:01:

Det er noget af det sødeste påske pynt. Og den magiske cirkel er perfekt. Jeg havde Fabel tyndt uldgarn gul og orange og Alpaca rød. Ville lave en prøve, men den er blevet så nuttet. Glæder mig til at lave nogle i rigtig størrelse. ;) Kan varmt anbefales.

Alessandra Pautasso 29.01.2015 - 19:10:

Becco: alla riga 6 c'è forse un errore? "(....) 1 m.b. nell 'ultima m.b., girare il lavoro." ma cosi' le maglie totali sono 3 invece di 4, bisogna forse sostituire con "1 m.b. nelle 2 m.b. successive", come nella prima parte della riga?

DROPS Design 24.04.2015 kl. 17:26:

Risposta tardiva, chiediamo scusa! La catenella sostituisce la m.b, ma comunque c'è qualcosa che non quadra nella riga 6. L'abbiamo segnalato ai designer. In ogni caso lascerei 3 m, non cambia nulla. Alla riga successiva lavorerà 1 m in meno ancora e poi chiude. Buon lavoro!

Christine 20.06.2014 - 23:25:

What am I missing? The pattern calls for double crochet stitches but the stitch is clearly single crochet? Is DC something else in England? A bit confused.

DROPS Design 21.06.2014 kl. 09:44:

Dear Christine, crochet terminology is different in US-English and UK-English, click here to get that pattern in US-English. Happy crocheting!
