CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring):
Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards.

WORKING 2 SC TOG:
* Insert hook in next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

COLOR CHANGE - SC:
To get a nice color change work last sc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get yarn, make a YO with the new color and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new color.

Hello, with a Christmas Carol, I have a hard time after I finished the head, where do I attach the white yarn? And also I cannot find pattern for the hat. Sorry, I guess I am not very good at it ; ) But I would appreciate if someone will help me.

Dear Irina, hat is worked from round 14 when you continue working with red. Then crochet the white edge in the sts around the round where you change colours. Happy crocheting!

Silvia 18.11.2013 - 20:30:

Sì ho fatto il campione come al solito infatti sto' utilizzando un uncinetto n.4 invece che 4.5 perché con il 4.5 le misure non mi corrispondevano precisamente al campione. Grazie

DROPS Design 19.11.2013 kl. 15:22:

Grazie Silvia, abbiamo inviato la segnalazione, se sarà necessario correggeremo il modello sul sito. Grazie, buon lavoro!

Silvia 16.11.2013 - 10:43:

Salve, sto'confezionando questi favolosi Santa Claus ma credo che ci sia un errore nella quantità del cotone rosso da utilizzare, gr. 50 non bastano per l'intero pupazzo, ne servono circa 100 gr per il pupazzo completo.

DROPS Design 17.11.2013 kl. 18:06:

Buonasera Silvia, il suo campione corrisponde a quello indicato? In ogni caso grazie per la segnalazione, lo faremo presente alla casa madre, se ci saranno delle correzioni le troverà sul sito al più presto. Buon lavoro!!!
