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.

How do you assemble the cat and how do you do the winking eye

DROPS Design 07.11.2016 kl. 09:03:

Dear Em, you can first add pins to find place for each piece then sew them tog with yarn and thread needle. The eye will be embroider on the face - see here. Happy crocheting!

Niestety nie mogę się zgodzić z tą terminologią. Sc (US) i dc (BR) to owszem, to samo - i jest to półsłupek. Kot ze zdjęcia jest zrobiony właśnie tą techniką. Oczko ścisłe to po angielsku slip stich (sl st). To, do czego mnie Państwo odsyłacie, to nie jest półsłupek (sc), tylko półsłupek nawijany czy z narzutem (z ang. hdc - half double crochet).

Monika 15.09.2016 - 20:16:

We wzorze sc przetłumaczono jako os. Czy nie powinny to byc polslupki??

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 17:49:

Witaj Moniko. Wszystko jest w porządku: sc (single crochet US) to to samo co dc (double crochet UK), a po polsku oś (oczko ścisłe). Półsłupek wykonujemy jak TUTAJ. POWODZENIA!

Klára 21.02.2016 - 19:30:

Ahoj všichni já jsem to dělala přesně podle návodu a skončilo to tak že ta kočka má úplně OBROVSKOU HLAVU takže to moc nevyšlo ale jinak OK :)

Marianne 14.04.2014 - 15:21:

Klopt het dat de staart niet gevuld dient te worden? Dit lijkt niet te kloppen met wat ik op de afbeelding zie.

DROPS Design 15.04.2014 kl. 12:06:

Hoi Marianne. Ja, dat klopt. De staart is te klein om gevuld te worden. Je mag het natuurlijk altijd proberen als je dat mooier vindt.

Babs 17.12.2013 - 13:42:

Ok bedankt!

Babs 17.12.2013 - 11:33:

Is het de bedoeling dat je de opening van de kop en het lijfje sluit (dicht maakt) voordat je ze aan elkaar naait? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 17.12.2013 kl. 11:59:

Hoi Babs. Nee, je sluit niet de openingen (zowel het lijf als de kop eindigt met 12 v op de toer. Je naait de openingen aan elkaar.

Silvo 30.05.2013 - 17:41:

Zählt der Magic Circle mit den Anfangsmaschen bereits als 1. Runde?

DROPS Design 03.06.2013 kl. 09:41:

Hallo, ja Sie machen den Magic Circle und häkeln die gewünschte Anzahl Maschen (hier 6) in den Ring. Dann geht es mit Rd 2 weiter.

Esther 27.12.2012 - 13:49:

Sehr lustige Idee! Ist ein sehr beliebtes Spielzeug.
