Con un dibujo se entendería mejor y sería mucho más práctico

Sophia 12.11.2014 - 09:07:

A diagram will be very helpful.thank you.

Sophia Vasiliadou 12.11.2014 - 08:52:

Because I don't understand very well are they any dec or inc in the piece or we finish with the same number of stitches that we cast on in the begging?

DROPS Design 12.11.2014 kl. 10:04:

Dear Mrs Vasiliadou, you don't inc/dec number of sts from round 3 to the end, just work then different kind of sts (tr instead dc) which make the collar be wider. For any help, remember you can get tips & advices from your DROPS Store. Happy crocheting!

Renu 12.11.2014 - 06:53:

Is it possible to have an extra column on the Yarn Groups page which shows the yarn diameter in microns so that users can see which yarns are below the 23 micron itch-free threshold? This would be very helpful to those who have sensitive skin? Many thanks.

DROPS Design 12.11.2014 kl. 10:16:

Dear Mrs Renu, each sensitivity is different and depends from everyone, for any help choosing a yarn, you are welcome to request help from your favorite DROPS store. Happy crocheting!

Schnelle Arbeit, Anleitung passt perfekt! Schönes Stück :-) Ich würde nächstes Mal aber anderes Garn verwenden, lieber Nepal vielleicht, kratzt etwas ;-)

Vorrei ricevere il diagramma completo per la realizzazione del modello DROPS 134-8 SCALDACOLLO DROPS ALL'UNCINETTO CON MOTIVI A VENTAGLIO

DROPS Design 27.12.2013 kl. 11:15:

Buongiorno Ermellina, il modello non ha un diagramma, per realizzarlo deve seguire attentamente le istruzioni indicate. Buon lavoro!

Viviane 19.12.2013 - 12:57:

Modèle sympa mais je suis un peu déçue du résultat. Gros bémol : le milieu dos est assez moche avec l'assemblage... Pas discret du tout. Le modèle aurait certainement gagné à être crocheté en rond. Dommage.

Haak 17.12.2013 - 17:36:

Bedankt voor het antwoord op mijn vorige vraag. U schrijft: 'een beetje smaller'. Mijn haakwerk is best smal aan de bovenkant. Met hoeveel cm wordt het ongeveer groter?

DROPS Design 18.12.2013 kl. 11:37:

Hoi Haak. Met de juiste stekenverhouding wordt het werk ongeveer 65-72 cm aan de bovenkant. Ik heb geen afmeting voor de onderkant, maar omdat je daar dstk haakt ipv stk, wordt het per herhaling een beetje breder.

Haak 17.12.2013 - 09:11:

Ik heb een vraagje: Hoeft er niet gemeerderd te worden bij dit patroon? Hoe komt het dat de waaier steeds breder wordt? Hoef ik in de 4 stokjes aan beide randen geen extra schelpjes te maken?

DROPS Design 17.12.2013 kl. 09:51:

Hoi Haak. Hij wordt een beetje breder omdat je vanaf 21 cm haakt met dstk en niet gewone stk.

Beverley 28.11.2013 - 18:58:

Can you check amount of starting chains and dc in row 1, says 117dc. But go to row 2 & 34 chain spaces (each worked using up 3 of the dc of previous row) plus chain 2 plus 8 dc (4 each end). well added up 34times3=102 plus 2chains (the 35th chain) plus 8 dc =means you are using 112 of the 117dc made on row 1. Done this over several times now and Just does not add up.

DROPS Design 29.11.2013 kl. 08:48:

Dear Beverly, on row 2, you will skip approx 2 sts (3 sts from time to time evenly distributed if required) to get a total of 35 ch-spaces and 4 dc in each side for bands. Happy crocheting!
