ROUND 1: Work 2 ch, 8 dc in 1st ch, finish with 1 sl st in 1st dc = 8 dc - Read DC ROUNDS above.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 16 dc.

ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 40 dc.

Falsche Materialangabe! In der Anleitung steht 300 g Drops Lin. Dieses ist aber lt. meinem Verkäufer garnicht mehr im Dropssortiment, sondern die Bomull-Lin. Die hat aber eine kürzere Lauflänge, sodass man 9 anstelle der 6 angegebenen Knäuel braucht!!! Das ist für mich persönlich jetzt echt doof, weil ich nochmal 5,95 € für die Nachbestellung bezahlen mußte und auch noch über Pfingsten nicht weitermachen kann, da die Wolle noch nicht da ist. :-(

Liebe Sabine, die Materialangabe ist richtig, die Tasche ist im Original mit der angegebenen Menge Fabel und Lin gearbeitet. Leider haben Sie Lin aus der Garngruppe B durch ein Garn der Garngruppe C ersetzt. Unter Garnalternativen finden Sie Vorschläge, durch welche Garne die Qualität Lin bei gleichbleibender Maschenprobe ersetzt werden kann. Den Verbrauch müssen Sie trotzdem errechnen (die Lauflänge ist auf der entsprechenden Farbkarte angegeben) – Ihr DROPS Händler hilft Ihnen gerne dabei.

Liebe Sabine, das stimmt genau, vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Wir werden es sofort korrigieren.

Sabine 13.05.2013 - 13:37:

In der deutschen Anleitung hat sich ein Fehler eingeschlichen: es muss heißen in der 7. Runde 5 Maschen und nicht 4, wie dort steht. Auch ist die englische Version ein bisschen verständlicher, weil ausführlicher, was die Aufnahmen anbelangt. Ich jedenfalls hatte meine Probleme, das zu kapieren....;-). Aber eine echt schöne Tasche. Meine ist zwar noch nicht fertig, aber sieht schon gut aus..

Maria 18.01.2013 - 17:19:

Verstehe ich es richtig, dass ich bei den festen Maschen die letzte feste Masche immer in die kettmasche der Vorrunde häkeln muss?

DROPS Design 20.01.2013 kl. 19:02:

Liebe Maria, nein die Kettm dient nur dazu die Rd zu schliessen. Häkeln Sie nur in die fM.
