Bonjour, Je suis en train de réaliser ce modèle et d'un coup je suis prise d'un doute. Savez vous combien de centimètre doivent faire les manches en largeur, au plus court et au plus large, en L/XL ? Plus j'avance et plus ça me paraît énorme, je suis à la 10eme augmentations et ma manche fait déjà 38cm de large. Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 08:35:

Bonjour Leslie, Si votre échantillon (14 DB= 10 cm) est conforme, vous devez avoir : 39 double-brides = 28 cm environ au début et 39 cm environ quand toutes les augmentations sont faites (= 55 double-brides). Bon crochet!

Montserrat 26.08.2018 - 20:54:

¿Podría ver un gráfico de este saco?, pues me ayuda a endender la forma, grácias

DROPS Design 28.08.2018 kl. 19:38:

Hola Montserrat, los diagramas con las medidas para la chaqueta están bajo el patrón. El diagrama para trabajar el dibujo no está incluido, sólo se puede trabajar mediante las explicaciones del texto.

Therese 02.05.2018 - 10:25:

Tack för alla härliga mönster! Jag är nybörjare så det blir en del grunnande över hur man tråcklar ihop plaggen. Påbörjat wild flower och älskar hur jackan börjar ta form. Fått mycket hjälp av videoklippen i mååånga sammanhang. Det kanske är krångligt att utföra i praktiken, men det skulle vara önskvärt att kunna filtrera frågorna under vart specifika mönster(varv?/språk?). Oavsett tack för att ni finns!

What's 1thread, 2 threads, 3 threads

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 09:24:

Dear Susan, this pattern has been worked with 1 thread Nepal (= yarn group C) but you can work it with 2 threads yarn group A hold together as just one. Read more about alternatives here. Happy crocheting!

Tammy 05.04.2018 - 18:22:

I absolutely love this Wild flower pattern but I'm self taught and was wondering if you had a tutorial showing me. I do better when I can see what you are doing. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance, Tammy 😁

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 23:30:

Dear Tammy, you can find links to the related videos for each pattern on the left side of the page, below the picture of the model. I hope this helps. Happy Crocheting!

JANETH ELENA MARTINEZ MARTINEZ 25.03.2018 - 04:17:

Sugiero que realicen video tutorial, para comenzar los delanteros ya que es confuso. He desbaratado, queda desagradable y no he podido estrenar el saco. Agradezco la colaboración. JANETH

Amanda Wycoff 25.03.2018 - 03:55:

If I were to not crochet the sleeves would that look okay? I’m wanting to just make a vest and love how the back looks :)

DROPS Design 29.03.2018 kl. 02:20:

Dear Amanda, yes, that can work. We have a couple of vests in similar - circle body- style, that are nice without sleeves. However I would crochet a narrow edge around the armhole, just to stabilize it (probably a *dc, 3 chain stitch* would do well, or apicot edge if you want to go fancy). Happy Crocheting!

Katrin Brand 07.01.2018 - 00:35:

Hallo zusammen Ich hänge schon eine gefühlte Ewigkeit am linken vorderteil. Die Jacke soll s/m werden. Wenn ich nach 19 Runden fertig bin , schneide och den Faden dann ab? Ich komm absolut nicht klar mit dem zählen und errechnen der Seiten. Bitte helft mir.

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Frau Brand, wenn der Kreis fertig ist, schneiden Sie den Faden ab. Jetzt die Markierer für beide Vorderteil einsetzen. Falten Sie Kreis so daß beide Armlöcher gegenüber sind, dann eine Markierung in der Mitte oben am Hals + unten am Rand einsetzen, dann die 35 Maschen zählen (= die Masche mit der Markierung + 17 Maschen auf beiden Seiten der Markierung). Dann Vorderteil über die 79 Maschen zwischen den Markierungen (oben am Hals und unten am Rand) häkeln. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Ana 01.01.2018 - 23:45: http://www.lanaydeda ...

Estoy haciendo la chaqueta wild flower y estoy con los delanteros,ya tengo puesto los marcadores.Estoy haciendo la talla S,que se empieza a trabajar en los puntos que están entre los marcadores?( en mi caso son 33)o en lo 79? Estoy muy perdida no sé cómo seguir.

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 15:48:

Hola Ana. Los delanteros los trabajamos sobre los 79 puntos a cada lado para la talla S. Los marcapuntos son necesarios para marcar donde se trabajan los aumentos para darle forma a los delanteros.

Wendy B Nice 07.11.2017 - 17:58:

I love this pattern! If I used Lima (yarn group B) instead of Nepal (yarn group c), what would be the difference of the finished jacket? Would I need to change the hook size? I would be concerned about the finished product not fitting correctly, but I like the idea of a lighter weight jacket that isn't as bulky. Any thoughts? Thanks.

DROPS Design 07.11.2017 kl. 19:52:

Dear Wendy, the Lima and the Nepal yarns are similar as far as the composition, however they are different weights, they are in different yarn groups. Nepal is thicker. It is not impossible to make the sweater, but you should make a gauge swatch and recalculate the stitchcount. I hope this helps. Happy crafting!
