Superlahe müts tuleb, aga ma üsna palju muutsin neid kahandamise-kasvatamise kohti, et väga suur ei tuleks. samas kui põhimõte selge, siis pole enam peamurdmist, kuidas küll seda lahedat kõrvadega mütsi teha :)

Gi87 03.02.2013 - 22:59:

Love, love, love this pattern but having lots of trouble with the thumbs! Any tips for crocheting around the area greatly appreciated.

Dear Gi87, when mitten measured 3 1/8"-3 1/2", you made an opening for thumb crocheting 4-5 ch and skipping the first 4-5 sts. This is the hole for the thumb, you join thread there and crochet in hdc around the opening starting with 2 ch (does not count as 1st hdc). Happy crocheting !

Does this pattern run small I am following the gauge and it seems small

Hi Helen, do you have the indicated tension of 11 hdc = 10 cm ? Happy crocheting !

Ik heb problemen met de oorflappen.Voorste of achterste lus,is dat gezien vanuit de kant dat je haakt of vanuit de goede kant? toer 1 begin je met 2l, net zoals de andere toeren,enkel toer2begin je zonder 2l, waardoor je in het begin een schuine en een rechte kant hebt(rechte kant achteraan Maar als je de andere flap maakt,dan komt ofwel de rechte kant vooraan (goede kant begint in 19e steek) of begin je aan de verkeerde kant(in de 9e steek),maar dan krijg je toch 2 verschillende oorflappen?

In de voorste of achterste lus gezien zoals u het werk houdt als u haakt. En u haakt wel altijd eerst 2 l elke toer, deze informatie staat boven zoals genoemd in het patroon onder: "Lees HAAK HEEN EN WEER boven." gr. Angelique
