This is lovely thank you for the pattern. I see a photo with a different colour combination can you tell me what those colours are please?

DROPS Design 23.11.2016 kl. 09:41:

Dear Mrs Hurford, Paris is available in many colours - see here - Do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store, even per mail or telephone - they'll find you the combination in your favorite colours. Happy crocheting!

Sheila 28.09.2016 - 17:48:

I am crocheting the main flower, for which there is a video. However, I cannot understand the instruction on Row 8 at the beginning. THe video stops at Row 7. PLease can you help?

DROPS Design 29.09.2016 kl. 08:40:

Dear Sheila, on round 8 you will have to crochet ch-spaces to make a square, crocheting only in the 1st and last dtr on each leaf, start with 1 dc in 1st dtr, 3 ch (= 1st tr for the corner), 8 ch (= corner), 1 tr (not 1 dc) in 5th dtr on same leaf, *5 ch, skip to next leaf and work: 1 dc in 1st dtr on this leaf, 5 ch, 1 dc in last dtr, 5 ch, skip to next leaf and work 1 tr in 1st dtr, 8 ch (corner), 1 tr in last dtr on same leaf, and repeat from *-* = 4 corners with 8-ch-spaces and 3 5-ch-spaces along each side. Happy crocheting!

Jordan 16.07.2016 - 20:18:

I am having a hard time with square 3 and 4 i am not understanding the drop of color then picking it back up it seems like it will be a mess trying to sew to the next square any helpful videos or suggestions to help?

DROPS Design 18.07.2016 kl. 09:11:

Dear Jordan, the video below shows how to change colours when working back and forth - you can cut the yarn at the end of each row or pick up the colour from previous stripe, making sure to tighten strand enough to avoid loose ends from WS but not to contract piece in height. Happy crocheting!

Irene 16.06.2016 - 13:03:

Hi there when I look at the picture of large square orange blossom it seems at the end you have added another row all around (final row) after completing off white chain rows but this is not included in the pattern - pls can you tell me what you did here and which stitch to use thanks Irene

DROPS Design 16.06.2016 kl. 13:47:

Dear Irene, there are 3 rounds with off-white at the end of square 1 (with large flower) - squares are then sewn tog with off-white, this may be the one you are seeing. Happy crocheting!

Britisch=tr. Amerikanisch=dc.

Alexandra 15.06.2016 - 11:16:

Ich habe mich etwas falsch ausgedrückt. Ich meinte natürlich Reihen. Aber wenn man in die Englische Sprache schaut, steht als Abkürzung bei besagten Abschnitten "tr" und das bedeutet doch Doppelstäbchen, oder? Und bei Viereck 3, 2. Reihe steht folgende Abfolge: 1 Stb, 1 Lm, 1 Stb, 1 Stb in das nächste Stäbchen. Laut der Englischen Übersetzung (und den Bildern) müsste aber ein Stäbchen übersprungen ("skip") werden und danach, wie schon geschrieben ein Stb in das nächste Stb...

DROPS Design 16.06.2016 kl. 08:26:

Liebe Alexandra, vielen Dank für den Hinweis, es fehlte das Wort "überspringen" und wir haben gleich eine Korrektur vorgenommen. Es handelt sich aber wirklich um Stb. Die Bezeichnung dafür ist in britischem Englisch dc und im amerikanischen Englisch tr.

Alexandra 13.06.2016 - 16:03:

Kann es sein, dass in der Englischen Version bei Viereck 3 bei Natur in der letzten Runde Doppelstäbchen statt Stäbchen benutzt werden und bei Viereck 3 ab Reihe 2 auch?

DROPS Design 14.06.2016 kl. 21:17:

Liebe Alexandra, überprüfen Sie bitte Ihre Frage nochmals? Viereck 3 wird in Reihen gehäkelt und die letzte Reihe ist in koralle.

Mitra 03.01.2016 - 11:12:

Hi, how how I should change the color? when I cut the yarn what I crochet become open

DROPS Design 04.01.2016 kl. 09:31:

Dear Mitra, the video below shows how to work the flower on square 1 and how to change colour. Happy crocheting!

Anna 24.08.2014 - 20:28:

Dobrý den, u tohoto modelu máte v českém jazyce chyby v množství materialu. Barva č. 38 má být 200g (ne 100g), barva č. 33 má být 100g (ne 50 g), barva č. 60 vůbec není potřeba. Model je moc krásný, tak ať někdo další nemusí dokupovat přízi jako já :-))

DROPS Design 25.08.2014 kl. 10:58:

Milá Anno, děkuji za upozornění - návod je kompletně zrevidovaný a opravený. Hodně zdaru! Hana

An 15.06.2013 - 22:35:

De hoeveelheid ecru was onvoldoende bij mij maar ik haak nogal los. Garen is ook wat te zwaar voor een zomers dekentje, maar dat is persoonlijk. Mijn dochter is er reuze blij mee!
