Hello. My question is for the back piece "Work 1 more row, cut and fasten the thread, the piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''." Is one row considered as 1) one row of dc/bunched dc OR 2) both dc and bunch dc rows?

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 11:22:

Dear Linda, this will be the 2nd row worked on shoulder, ie you will work 2 more rows over the sts on shoulder than on the middle sts for neck. Happy crocheting!

Camilla 16.01.2018 - 22:02:

Hei. Ser at begge forstykkene skal hekles like, skulle ikke disse vært speilvendt av hverandre? Rett og vrangsiden ser jo veldig forskjellig ut....

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 08:42:

Hei Camilla. Her at det nok blitt vurdert slik at siden man hekler frem og tilbake og med garn fra garngruppe A (tynt garn), så er ikke forskjellen fra rett og vrang så stor. Men om du ønsker å ha det helt likt, kan du fint hekle det andre forstykket speilvendt. God Fornøyelse!

Olá, gostaria de saber para que serve fazer 1/2 diminuição nas costas em 10 cm e 20 cm?

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 13:24:

O casaco tem uma forma em A. As diminuições são feitas para lhe dar essa forma. Bom croché!

Francesca 14.02.2017 - 15:31:

Mi consigliate un filato in cotone per realizzare questa giacca? Grazie

DROPS Design 14.02.2017 kl. 16:04:

Buongiorno Francesca. Può usare i cotoni Safran, Drops Loves You 6 (controlli la disponibilità presso il rivenditore), Drops Loves You 7, anch’essi del gruppo A come il filato Alpaca. Alla seguente pagina trova le indicazioni per sostituire correttamente i filati. Verifichi sempre di ottenere lo stesso campione indicato nelle spiegazioni. Buon lavoro!

Raquel 25.04.2016 - 17:38:

Estoy haciendo el delantero derecho y no entiendo eso de empezar a partir del centro del frente y trabajar hacia el lado. Que tengo que ir tejiéndo directamente con la espalda o cómo y si cuando mida 15 cm que tengo que disminuir de un lado o ambos como en la espalda. Gracias

DROPS Design 26.04.2016 kl. 12:21:

Hola Raquel, el centro del frente se refiere a la parte de las cenefas, donde se abotona la chaqueta. Los delanteros y la espalda se trabajan por separado pero la espalda nos sirve de referencia para trabajar el delantero. Ten en cuenta que trabajamos 2 delanteros con lo cual las dism se trabajan solo a un lado en este caso y no como en la espalda.

Ik hem met maat L bezig maar ik kom niet uit de beschrijving voor de mouw kop. Hoeveel herhalingen moet ik uiteindelijk over houden?

DROPS Design 18.04.2016 kl. 14:14:

Hoi Wilma. Je mindert 1 heel herhaling en 8 keer 1/2 herhalingen aan elke zijkant = 6 herhalingen over

Vana Giannitsopoulou 03.02.2016 - 19:52:

Hello, I have a problem I cannot understand the 1/2 increase in the sleeve pattern. The diagram given is only for the left side I cannot figure out how it will be done for the other side. Thank you

DROPS Design 04.02.2016 kl. 09:50:

Dear Mrs Giannitsopoulou, diagram X.2 shows on the right side how to work the dec at beg of row (work 3 sl sts) and on the left side how to dec at the end of row (finish with 1 tr (UK-English) in the last ch-space (ie leave uworked the remaining sts on row). Happy crocheting!

Lorena 01.02.2016 - 21:37:

Excelentes diseños. Gracias. ***

Vana Giannitsopoulou 23.01.2016 - 14:37:

Hello, I do not understand in the back piece what am I going to do when the piece measures 10 cm and what when it measures 20 cm ? Thank you

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 11:12:

Dear Mrs Giannitsopoulou, when piece measures 10 and then 20 cm, you dec ½ reepetition in each side, ie at beg of row replace ½ repetition with 3 sl t and at theh end of row, turn when ½ repetition remain - see diag. X.2. Happy crocheting!
