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.

Je vous remercie pour ce tuto crochet gratuit qui est un magnifique modèle. Je suis vraiment ravi.

Für eine Bekannte, die Fußballfan von BVB Dortmund ist, habe ich Frankie in gelb und schwarz (drops Paris) nachgearbeitet. Dank der guten Anleitung ist er wirklich gut geworden. Ich würde Ihnen sehr gerne ein Foto schicken. An welche Email Adresse kann ich das Foto schicken? Ich habe kein Facebook, Instagram oder Twitter.

Goyave 19.12.2016 - 18:56:

Je suis débutante en crochet et j'ai trouvé les explications très claires d'autant plus que j'ai vu après réalisation que c'était un modèle pour intermédiaire. Egalement, je trouve votre site est très bien fait.

Anne-Marie 07.04.2016 - 22:29:

Hei, de magiske sirklene mine lager alltid små tupper, slik at hodet og rumpen ble litt spiss. Det ser dessverre litt dumt ut, synes jeg. Har dere et tips hvordan jeg kan unngå dette? Jeg har prøvd å trekke dem mindre stramme, men det hjalp bare litt.

Hej Anne-Marie, Har du set vor video med magisk cirkel? Ellers kan du sikkert justere det når du hæfter tråden. God fornøjelse!

Nicole 09.10.2013 - 08:39:

Ihr habt recht! Die Naht sieht nicht schön aus! Ich habe es so gemacht wie angegeben, besser geht's nun mal in Runden nicht. Er ist toll geworden!

Nicole 01.10.2013 - 14:45:

Das mit dem Farbwechsel an den Armen und Beinen finde ich nicht so schön, das sieht nicht sehr sauber aus. Ich werde sie wohl in Reihen häkeln. Das zugefügte Video zeigt übrigens den Farbwechsel beim häkeln in Reihen, und nicht in Runden.

DROPS Design 02.10.2013 kl. 09:01:

Liebe Nicole, wir fanden eine Naht etwas störend bei so kleinen Teilen und empfehlen daher in Runden zu häkeln. Aber vielleicht können Sie in abgeschlossenen Runden häkeln (wie im Video gezeigt!) und nicht spiralförmig - dann wird der Runden-Übergang nicht versetzt. Uns hat dies allerdings noch gefallen (siehe Foto).

Julia 02.09.2013 - 09:06:

Danke für die Antwort. Scheinbar wirken die Farben dann einfach an meinem Monitor nur anders.

Julia 01.09.2013 - 15:50:

Wird hier wirklich in Farbe Pistazie gehäkelt der handelt es sich auf dem Bild um Mint?

DROPS Design 01.09.2013 kl. 17:40:

Liebe Julia, der Körper ist mit Pistazie gehäkelt, die Beine pistazie und helltürkis geringelt. Aber selbstverständlich können Sie Frankie so häkeln, wie es Ihnen am besten gefällt!
