CROCHET TIP 1:
Because we cut the yarn and change the color on every round, work first dc on every round as follows: Make 2 YO on hook, insert hook in last st from previous round, make 1 YO and pull through, make 1 YO and pull through 2 sts, make yet 1 more YO and pull through the last 2 sts.

CROCHET TIP 2:
Fasten the yarn end after every color change by letting the strand from previous row be worked into the piece a bit before cutting it off and fastening it (work with the new color around the previous color).

SC IN A CIRCLE (applies to shoulder strap):
After last sc on 1st round, work 1 sc in next sc (= 1st sc from beg of 1st round), then work in the round with 1 sc in every sc.

COLOR OVERVIEW:
Change color on every round. Color no 1 when beg + 1 round, then color no 2 on 2nd round, color no 3 on 3rd round and finally color no 4 on 4th round.

La spiegazione in italiano è da correggere. Ci sono delle parole in altra lingua. Inoltre nella spiegazione del giro 4 manca un passaggio. La versione secondo me corretta, confrontandola con versione inglese: * 3 m.a nell’arco di cat seguente, 3 cat, 3 m.a nello stesso arco di cat, 1 cat, 3 m.a om neste arco di cat, 1 cat, 3 m.a om neste arco di cat, 1 cat*. Spero di essere stata utile, Valentina

Buongiorno Valentina. Abbiamo corretto il testo. La ringraziamo della segnalazione. Buon lavoro!

Elin Lunde 04.04.2017 - 23:19:

Skjønner ingenting av forklaringen på hvordan skulderreima skal hekles, kan noen forklare evt vise på film? Hvis jeg hekler fastmasker i sirkel, blir det jo rundt og ikke en lang skulderreim. Skal jeg ikke hekle frem og tilbake?

DROPS Design 05.04.2017 kl. 07:44:

Hei Elin. Du hekler rundt og rundt til reimen måler 180 cm, det blir som en lang tube/rør. Se video: Hvordan hekle snoren/hanken i DROPS 139-11 som har lik snor som i DROPS 139-15 God fornøyelse!

Leny 19.08.2016 - 22:01:

Eigenlijk een advies: knoop de draden goed aan elkaar bij het wisselen van de kleuren, anders gaat het naderhand zomaar los en dat is erg jammer. Een erg leuke tas!

Renata 20.12.2014 - 22:44:

Moc hezká :-)
