Gilda 29.01.2019 - 03:26:

Salve, ho un problema con le due parti del davanti, sinistro e destro. Come si fa ad individuare precise le rispettive 79 maglie sulle quali lavorare. Oppure le precise metà del collo, 35 mad, e le 35 della parte di sotto? In particolare, da dove iniziare per trovare la metà?

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 10:57:

Buongiorno Gilda, abbiamo leggermente modificato il testo, comunque deve lasciare da parte le 35 maglie alte doppie del collo e le 35 maglie alte doppie della parte inferiore del dietro. Buon lavoro!

Zia 05.01.2019 - 10:37:

Bonjour, je rencontre un pb pour les manches, je ne comprends pas comment la maille chainette de départ de la manche peut être de 28m alors que les instructions font sauter 27 DB au tour 13 pour l'emmanchure... je n'ai qu'un coté de la manche si je travaille sur 28mch au départ de la manche?? Je suis perdue!!

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Zia, les manches se crochètent de haut en bas, en commençant par l'arrondi de la manche, les 25 DB du début de la manche (sur 28 ml) vont être augmentées d'abord à 49 brides pour la largeur de l'emmanchure puis on diminuera pour le poignet. Bon crochet!

Gilda Le Pera 14.08.2018 - 11:28:

Il problema è che non ho ben capito il discorso delle diminuzioni; devono essere fatte all'inizio e alla fine di ogni riga, ma le spiegazioni ( diminuzioni 1) mi risultano poco chiare; soprattutto nella prima riga, che è proprio dove dovrei diminuire all'inizio

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 19:34:

Buonasera Gilda, può iniziare la riga come descritto nel suggerimento: "girare il lavoro con 1 cat, saltare 1 m.b, lavorare 1 m.bss nella m.m.a e 1 m.bss nella m.a, poi 1 m.b nella 1° m.a.d, 1 m.m.a nella m.a.d seguente e 1 m.a nella m.a.d seguente, lavorare m.a.d finché non rimangano 3 m.a.d alla fine della riga" Buon lavoro!

Gilda 13.08.2018 - 23:48:

Salve, ho difficoltà a capire le istruzioni per quanto riguarda le diminuzioni, sui due lati davanti. Dove si aumenta e diminuisce allo stesso tempo

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 10:38:

Buongiorno Gilda, se ci spiega meglio le sue difficoltà possiamo aiutarla meglio. In ogni caso sul davanti sinistro aumentare 1 maglia alta in corrispondenza di ogni segnapunti su ogni riga (2 aumenti per riga), in modo alternato prima e dopo il segnapunti (quindi su una riga aumenta prima e su quella successiva aumenta dopo) e contemporaneamente diminuire 3 m all' inizio e alla fine di ogni riga ad ogni lato – seguendo il suggerimento per le DIMINUZIONI-1 fino a quando sono state lavorate le righe indicate. Buon lavoro!

Barbara 07.07.2018 - 23:42:

Volendo fare il modello piu' grande (circonferenza petto 107cm) come modifico le istruzioni? Grazie

DROPS Design 08.07.2018 kl. 08:02:

Buongiorno Barbara. Abbiamo corretto le misure del giropetto. Può ora verificare la misura corretta da seguire. Buon lavoro!

Sophie Kling 18.02.2018 - 14:27:

Hej Jag vill anmäla ett fel mönstret. Det behövs 150g av både grålila och gammalrosa garnet i storlek S Jag blev riktigt besviken att ni skrivit fel då det blev fel i min beställning.

Rosaria Napolitano 01.02.2018 - 15:17:

Buongiorno, sto facendo questo modello ma mi sono bloccata. sono ferma al 19° giro, cosa intendete per lavorare solo sopra 79 mad ad ogni lato (devo quindi lavorare anche sulle maniche?non riesco a capire come si fa il davanti. Dalle spiegazioni che date sembrerebbe da lavorare a parte, non riesco a capire. Potete spiegarmi meglio Grazie

DROPS Design 01.02.2018 kl. 15:52:

Buongiorno Rosaria. Lo spazio per le maniche è stato creato al giro 13 (Taglia s/m), quando ha avviato le 30 cat e saltato le 27 m dello scalfo. Le maglie che lavora nelle cat dello scalfo sono maglie dei davanti. Al giro 19 deve proseguire solo sulle maglie dei davanti, non lavorando più sulla parte del lavoro dello scollo e quella in basso. Le maniche le lavora a parte e le cuce intorno all'apertura degli scalfi. Buon lavoro!

Rachele 27.01.2018 - 11:38:

Non capisco bene dalle spiegazioni come effettuare il davanti. Aumenti e diminuzioni?

DROPS Design 27.01.2018 kl. 20:04:

Buonasera Rachele, il davanti viene modellato con aumenti e diminuzioni come spiegato nelle istruzioni. Se c'è un punto non chiaro, ci scriva pure. Buon lavoro!

Christina 09.11.2017 - 00:35:

I know the front left side has been addressed, but I am still so confused: I understand up to inc at each marker... Am I to increase on both sides of the marker? Also I don't under inc and dec at the same time. If I'm inc at each marker at every row, how am I dec at the beginning and end of each row? Isn't that the same thing? I'm so confused.

DROPS Design 09.11.2017 kl. 09:16:

Dear Christina, you will dec 1 st at each marker, ie on first row inc 1 st before both markers (= 2 sts inc), on next row inc 1 st after both markers (= 2 sts inc) and continue that way. At the same time, decrease at the end of first row + at the beg of next row as explained under DECREASE-TIP-1, and continue dec at the end and beg of row as explained. Happy crocheting!

Roman 18.09.2017 - 07:28:

Hi, " in the first of these work 1 tr, in the next 1 htr and in the last 1 dc, turn with 1 ch, skip dc, work 1 sl st in htr and 1 sl st in tr, then 1 dc in first dtr, 1 htr in next dtr and 1 tr in next dtr, work dtr until 3 dtr remain at end of row" ; this is done at the beg. and end of rows in one step?! because it says "turn with". Regards, Roman

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:29:

Dear Roman, work end of row as explained until "turn with", then turn piece and work beg of row as explained. Happy crocheting!
