CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes 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's 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 (= the first sc from previous 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.

COLOR CHANGE - SC:
To get a nice color change work last sc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new color.

I've used the pattern many times with "furry" yarn. it can be hard to work with, but gets easier as you get used to it. And small mistakes go unnoticed! I adapted the ear pattern a bit, and make the arms and legs a tiny bit longer, but that's just my preference. Keeping the tension loose for the first round helps with the magic loop,

Sali 18.02.2018 - 23:40:

This yarn is almost impossible to crochet!! Please any tips how to handle the alpaca boucle?! Can’t see the stitches-just feeling and hoping for best each round. Also, it’s so bobbly that the magic circle is no use as yarn snags and snaps. I see others had similar issues- how do Drops suggest we handle the yarn?

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 10:19:

Dear Sali, you can first make a ball with both strands Alpaca Bouclé if it can help you. Happy crocheting!

Aurélie 09.09.2017 - 10:27:

Impossible de crocheter quoi que ce soit avec l'Alpaca bouclé. On ne voit pas les mailles. À réessayer avec de la laine simple.

Sofia 05.09.2017 - 08:41:

Hej, Jag är förbryllad över rekommendationen 150 g Alpaca Bouclé. Jag har precis virkat färdigt nallen med två trådar Alpaca Bouclé och virknål 5. Men det har endast gått åt 50 g. Väldigt stor skillnad, hur kommer det sig?

Laura Vazquez 02.09.2016 - 16:33:

Hola que mide el osito una vez tejido? gracias

DROPS Design 04.09.2016 kl. 22:16:

Hola Laura. El osito mide aprox. 22 cm. El tamaño depende del número de ganchillo, la tensión del trabajo y la calidad del hilo.

Ich habe folgendes übersehen: Puddle war ein Garn das normalerweise für Nadelstärke 7 ist, also wird hier mit einer kleineren Nadel deutlich fester gehäkelt. Ich habe einen 2. Teddy mit der Bouclewolle gemacht, bei dem ich den Faden doppelt genommen habe. Merkwürdigerweise lässt sich das Garn doppelt genommen viel besser häkeln. Der Teddy wird dann etwas größer und dichter. Beim einfädigen Teddy sieht man mit kritischem Blick etwas die Füllwatte durch.

Christa Roggensack 28.10.2015 - 06:10:

Sind die 150 g Puddel tatsächlich nötig? Ich bin mit 50 g Alpaka Boucle hingekommen.

DROPS Design 05.11.2015 kl. 12:27:

Es kommt immer auf die Lauflänge an. Alpaca Bouclé hat eine fast dreimal so lange Lauflänge (140 m pro 50 g) wie Puddel (50 m pro 50 g), daher reicht dann entsprechend auch ein Drittel des Garngewichts.

Christa Roggensack 28.10.2015 - 06:07:

Da das Garn Puddel nicht mehr erhältlich ist, habe ich mir DROPS Alpaka Boucle besorgt. Es stimmt Bouclegarne lassen sich nicht schön häkeln, weil man nur schwer die Maschen der Vorreihe erkennt. Aber das Resultat lohnt die Mühe. - Ich weiß nicht ob es daran liegt, dass ich ein Garn ausserhalb der Alternativliste verwendet habe. Ich habe keine 50 g für meinen Teddy benötigt. Sind die 150 g Puddel ein Druckfehler oder bräuchte man damit wirklich so viel mehr?

Ann 08.10.2015 - 07:39:

Beste graag had ik geweten wanneer er staat vb toer 4-9:12v of je deze toer 5x moet herhalen of maar 1x. Gr Ann ☀ ☀ ☀

DROPS Design 09.10.2015 kl. 14:58:

Hoi Ann. Het betekent dat je de werkwijze moet herhalen voor toer 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 en 9

Sarah 20.11.2014 - 18:37:

Schade! Das ist das allererste Garnstudio-Vorhaben, welches ich abbrechen musste. Ich häkle und stricke seit Jahren nach diesen Vorlagen, aber hier musste ich mich geschlagen geben: Das Pudel-Garn konnte ich nicht verhäkeln. Kann mir durchaus vorstellen, dass man es zum Stricken brauchen kann. Aber zum Häkeln werde ich das Pudel-Garn nicht mehr verwenden. Habe den Bären dann mit gewöhnlichem Garn gestrickt, aber da kann man auch BabyDROPS 21-43 "Teddy" häkeln.
