Hallo liebes Drops Team, mmit den Vorderteilen komme ich leider gar nicht klar: die Zunahmen und Abnahmen werden gleichzeitig gemacht ??? Über eine Hilfestellung freue ich mich sehr, da ich die Jacke sehr originell finde. Herzlichen Dank.Viele Grüße Pia Sesterhenn

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 12:02:

Liebe Frau Sesterhenn, ja genau, es wird am Anfang und am Ende jeder Reihe abgenommen - siehe ABNAHMETIPP 1- und gleichzeitg an jede Markierung zugenommen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Engnath 03.06.2018 - 11:18:

Ist die Maschenprobe zweifädig analog dem Garnvorschlag zu erstellen? Ich möchte die Jacke mit einem einfädig mit einem Farbverkaufsgarn probieren.

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:18:

Liebe Frau Engnath, wenn Sie 2 Fäden Garngruppe A durch 1 Faden Garngruppe C ersetzen, dann sollen Sie die gleiche Maschenprobe haben - hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Jess 20.06.2016 - 10:13:

Can you please clarify how many pieces are needed for the sleeves? If I crochet 1 piece for each sleeve and join that piece together with one side seam, that sleeve is too small to fit into the armhole. So should I be crocheting two sleeve pieces together to make one sleeve,(so 4 sleeve pieces in total?) The armhole is way too big to crochet if only one sleeve piece done.

DROPS Design 20.06.2016 kl. 12:03:

Dear Jess, you have to crochet 2 sleeves - sleeve are worked back and forth, from cap of sleeves down to armhole then to wrist edge, then sewn tog around. You first inc for sleeve cap, then dec along "arm" it self. Happy crocheting!

Karin 12.02.2016 - 13:45:

Hallo, Ik heb het vest nu bijna af. Echter het lijf is wel heel anders uitgevallen alsop de foto, bij mijvalt het achter in twee wijde plooien over mijn rug. Ik heb de kleinste maat genomen, en toch valt het veel te wijd. Verandert dit zodra ik de mouwen aan zai misschien? Ook lijkt het alsof ik met het garen vooral de lichtpaarse kleur waar ik een rand van wil maken niet uitkom. Heel erg mooi patroon verder, maar zou jammer zijn als het niet goed zou vallen.

DROPS Design 10.03.2016 kl. 14:20:

Hoi Karin. Het is helaas moeilijk voor mij om in te schatten op afstand. Maar kloppen de afmetingen wel zoals op de maattekening en de stekenverhouding?

Maritza 11.11.2015 - 01:48:

Hello,i love your patterns,i am crocheting calypso drops 140-22,but I am confused how to start the left side,the large pattern said to count 27 sts from the side ,I marked the 41 sts top and bottom,but I do not understand from witch point I start to count the 27sts,thanks a lot

DROPS Design 11.11.2015 kl. 09:28:

Dear Maritza, the left front piece is worked over 87 sts - insert 2 markers as follows: 27 sts, insert 1 marker, 33 sts, insert 1 marker, 27 sts = 87 sts. Happy crocheting!

Annie 05.08.2015 - 08:08:

Hallo Ook ik ben met dit vest bezig en ik moet nu de mouw innaaien maar de mouwkop in het vest is veeeel breder dan de mouwkop van de mouw . Dit past echt niet . De mouwkop van get vest is 36 cm ongeveer en due van de mouw 18

DROPS Design 05.08.2015 kl. 14:14:

Hoi Annie. Nu weet ik niet welke maat je maakt, maar een mouwkop zal nooit precies dezelfde afmetingen hebben als het armsgat ivm de schuine randen. Het is wel - zoals altijd - heel belangrijk dat de stekenverhouding correct is, of dan kan de afmetingen verkeerd uitkomen.

Sylvia 03.08.2015 - 16:15:

Sorry hoor die woordspeling ook mouwloos is mouwkop

Sylvia 03.08.2015 - 16:13:

Hallo Mouwloos is mouwloos hoor in mijn vorige vraag

Sylvia 03.08.2015 - 15:50:

Hallo Alvast bedankt voor uw reactie maar ik snap het nog niet . 18 cm is toch veel te klein om als mouwkop mee te beginnen ? Je zet de mouwloos vast op het vest en dis begin je toch met 18 cm waardoor de mouwloos erg strak wordt

DROPS Design 04.08.2015 kl. 14:59:

Hoi Sylvia. Sorry, ik was een beetje snel met reageren hier. Het mouw wordt hier inderdaad van boven naar beneden gehaakt en je begint met het haken van de mouwkop heen en weer tot je 43 dstk hebt en de mouwkoop meet 14 cm, hier begin je met het minderen aan beide zijkanten tot je 37 dstk hebt. Dus mouwkop is 14 cm hoog en mouw in totaal 61 cm. Je sluit de mouwnaad tot aan het begin van de mouwkop - de mouwkop wordt in het vestje genaaid.

Sylvia 31.07.2015 - 18:00:

Hallo Ik kom niet uit de mouwen 28 lissen is veel te klein of moet ik per mouw 2 delen haken ?

DROPS Design 03.08.2015 kl. 15:02:

Hoi Sylvia. De lossen niet te strak haken. Je maakt na de 28 l 25 dstk, met de juiste haakstekenverhouding is de omtrek van je mouw ca 18 cm - en je gaat verder meerderen naar in totaal 49 dstk = 35 cm omtrek.
