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 thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc 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 dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards.

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

COLOUR CHANGE - DC:
To get a nice colour change work last dc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get thread, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new colour.

Bonjour ! Trop mignon mais comment faites vous car avec les boucles je ne vois pas les mailles ? Merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 24.06.2019 kl. 14:45:

Bonjour Cricri69, il faut bien regarder les mailles pour bien crocheter au bon endroit, ça peut paraître un peu complexe avec le fil, mais avec un peu d'habitude, on y arrive. Bon crochet!

Lynne 29.06.2018 - 02:30:

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.

Christa Roggensack 03.11.2015 - 08:52:

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
